While I understand it is reasonably past time to end the prelude quest, couldn't you have left the mobs in, so that we could still continue to use and buy things from the merchant (just like what was done with the TOT stuff?)? What poor timing....the house I've been working on used the shadowy house actors, and I really liked the other things on the list a lot too. Also, any heads up that you were going to take the event out would have been greatly appreciated just for this reason. Other decorators like me could have had time to at least stock up before the removal of everything. I can't put enough frowny faces on this.
