Events are time periods when special mobs spawn in the Overworld. There are 7 events in Advent of Ascension - 4 occur at night, and 3 occur during the day. Events cannot occur within the first 20 minutes of a new world, regardless of whether the player sleeps in a bed or not.
The beginnings and endings of events are all announced by the chat messenger.
Except for the full moon event, all events occur randomly. It is possible for multiple events to occur at the same time; for example a Soul Scurry occurring on a Full Moon, or a Death Day on a Big Day.
The following events all occur at night. They are announced shortly after the sun sets, and end as the sun rises.
Full Moon Event
Opening message: The ground bathes in the pearly light of the moon.
Closing message: The moon falls beyond the horizon.
The Full Moon Event is the only event that does not occur randomly, instead occurring whenever there is a full moon- with the exception of the first Full Moon in a world.
In Minecraft the moon goes through a Lunar Cycle. Each Lunar Cycle consists of 8 moon phases; on the 8th moon phase, the Full Moon comes out. The first night of the game is always a Full Moon, so the player will not have to worry about the event until the next Full Moon.
According to the Minecraft Wiki, each lunar cycle takes about 2 hours and 30 minutes. This means that assuming no nights are skipped through usage of a bed, a Full Moon Event will occur every 2 hours and 30 minutes of gameplay.
Opening message: The hunt for blood has begun!.
Closing message: The blood hunters retreat, satisfied.
The Bloodhunt Event has a 1.695% chance of occurring every night.

Soul Scurry Event
