Marauders of Kathos have one favorite past time: Kathonian Football. The game is very similar to American Football, except that it is very bloody and totally insane. Like normal football, the team scoring the most touchdowns wins the game. However, team captains send their full armies to the playing field, making the game a bloody ordeal indeed. Often whole teams end up in the sick bay after the match. The game is also utterly deranged. Instead of a normal ball, the marauders use their enemies’ skulls. Needless to say, one match burns through quite a lot of skulls. Fortunately marauders have a lot of enemies!

Thousands of Kats. Millions of Kats! A horde of cursed black kats swarming the clockworks. Haunting corners, spooking the unwary, knocking things off shelves, asking to go out and then wanting to come right back in … and what-not.
<b>Awesome! Now what?</b> Actually this is kind of a problem. A – wait for it -- <i>katastrophe</i>. Now that we have that out of the way: seriously though it’s kind of bad down there. The Kat spooks are drawn to arcane energy, of the sort that Moorcroft Manor is just absolutely brimming with.
Like most Manors, Moorcroft keeps their arcane energy safely ensconced within magical grimoires. A grimoire is a type of book for people who wear robes. Just trust us that this is important.
<b>Okay, Then:</b> Advanced scouts have determined that a) Kats cannot read (that’s good!) and b) they are just eating the freaking things instead (that’s bad). Look, don’t ask us to explain how cats, let alone mystical undead ghost Kat versions, go about problem solving.
<b>What:</b> Kataclysmic Confrontation is a new event for Spiral Knights – it will run for a limited time, and, as with all invasions of phantom felines, will return in the future! <b>Due to the excessive danger of the Black Kat invasion, these missions are only available for Knights who have achieved rank 4-1 and up.</b>
<b>Event Goals:</b> The object of the event: to collect Ancient Page tokens from Black Kats. Ancient Page tokens will be awarded either as daily Prestige Mission rewards, or as drops from individual Black Kat monsters via missions from the Arcade.
<b>Meow?</b> The villain of this event – the Black Kat! This is a new monster type equipped with a power ability to snub any food you offer it … <i>and curse your immortal soul!</i> Seriously though, the Black Kats deliver curse damage, so watch out for that. They can be randomly found in place of any Spookat-type monster in a Tier 2 or Tier 3 level of the Clockworks.
<b>Meow!</b> Indeed! The Kataclysmic Confrontation event is <b>scheduled to end on February 13th.</b>
<b><u>Moorcroft Manor: Home Meowkover Edition</b></u>
We apologize for the above “pun”. Those responsible have been sacked.
Knights are now able to explore the Archives, a newly accessible area of Moorcroft Manor. Therein, you will find the Ancient Grimoires … and also the Black Kats who ate them. So there’s that.
<ul><li>Pembrooke, the Spookat caretaker of the Moorcroft Archives</li><li>Montague, the Historic Preservation Motivator. Montague is a token trader that exchanges rewards for Ancient Page tokens.</li><li>Moorcroft Alchemy Station, where Kat Gear can be crafted!</li><li>The mysterious Konjuring Kat. What koncerns this kitty? Perhaps if you had the right item …</li></ul>
<b><u>New Gear and New Guild Hall Features</b></u>
In addition to a veritable ocean of phantom Black Kats choking the gears of the Clockworks and devouring ancient books, there is also: New Stuff! and… New Furniture!
Many new Kat-themed helms of high quality are available from Montague, within the Moorcroft Manor addition.
For guild-minded Knights, there are also a variety of new themes available with which to decorate your Guild Halls – whole decoration schemes, as well as Environment themes, allowing you to have actual weather conditions inside your Guild Hall! Which is crazy. Crazy <i>awesome</i>.
