I don't suppose we could get an actual date/time deadline? I've finally got almost all of the clues assembled, and I'll probably be down to the wire racking my brain to figure them out.  ;D

The contest is over!
I will list out the guilds that found the key and send the rewards shortly.

Congratulations to all the players that participated!

Edit:
The list has been updated on the original post.

For those that did not find the solution, here it is:

The carving on each pumpkins contained two sequences of numbers, for instance :

2-1,1,4,1,1;5|1,3,1,1,1,1,3,1

Which is translated into:

2-1,1,4,1,1
5|1,3,1,1,1,1,3,1

The - and | signs mean "horizontal" and "vertical". This leads to 21 number sequences for "horizontal", and 21 for "vertical". This forms the description of a Nonogram.
Once solved, the nonogram resulted in a QR code which could be translated into the string "ISTHISREALLYAKEY".
This string itself was the key.

Now for finding what it could open: The string was actually a key for Estiah 2 closed beta. Only the first player that tried to register with it was able to make an account. This beta key was actually the "surprise prize" awarded for the winner. Congratulations to Hugliston for grabbing it!


Edit2:
All the rewards for this contest have been sent.

...Seriously? Well that... is not something I ever would have thought of.  ;D Congrats to the people who came up with the right way to go.

At least I managed to pull together all but two of the clues on my own (and fortunately got the last two from a guildie). Too bad I spent all that time pulling together clues without being able to do anything with them, though.

I thought it formed the description of a Minesweeper grid, with the numbers indicating the quantity of adjacent mines.  :(
This world is a mess, and I just need to rule it.

For next time - do as much group dungeons as possible, if you have the chance. They always drop and doesn't cost as much ap as dungeon runs ;)

Well, you could get taunt charms instead, but yeah, it does increase the likelihood of you being able to finish the skill.
