    All I really,really,really,really,really,really,really,really,really,really,really, want this Halloween is Toliet Paper!

    Okay, before everyone declares me insane, smoking crack, messed up in my head etc. etc.

    Didn't ANY of you as teenagers EVER T.P. (Thats what we called it back in the day.) someone's house? OMG, that was fun! It was completely harmless...Unless it rained, ugh ever tried to get wet TP out of shrubbery and trees??

    I think it would be way fun to TP each other's houses, the banks and anything else the Devs would let us TP.

    Please Devs if ya ever TP'ed anyone or anything and remember the fun you had, then let us have some fun in UO too!

    When I see any developer even say the word "brewing" no matter the context,my hope rises that we will actually get brewing in the game.

    I have TP'd(single bandage) and egged(single fried egg) a players house before for laughs.
     
  13. Well we cannot beg off the gargoyle in the new lands I hope we get to trick or treat there.
     
  14. Evidently you were never the one that had to clean it up afterwards...:thumbdown:

    Evidently all the other kids nailed your house and you had to clean it up or get grounded. We're sorry, we didn't mean to get you in trouble.:heart:

    Soooo, im new at the whole Halloween in UO thing. Do you just approach an npc and say "Trick or Treat" or what?

    When the dev's turn it on, yes that is all you do and hope you get a treat. Of course seeing your body in pieces is quite an experience the first time too, hehe.

    I vote for a magic wand that makes a flock of little bats fly circles around the head of the person you target, a "goody bag" in bright orange that glows in the dark, and your choice of a banner that you can attach to the door of your house that looks like a zombie, lich, skeleton, or other creepy is emerging to eat up the trick or treaters.
     
  23. I'm still hoping for a demon slayer version of the Conjurer's Trinket.
     
  24. You got it.

    Just keep the following things in mind:
    • The character you Trick or Treat with has a chance of being killed on the spot. So don't use a character with fame. Mules work perfectly for this.
    • The higher your begging, the more likely you are to get a special item.
    • If you see "Do you want something special? Of course you do!," that means you just got a special item. Everything else means you got one of the 4 varieties of candy.
    • Candy of a like type stack. Therefore it behooves you to collect as much as you possibly can (ie it takes up just as much space for 1 as 60k). In the past, such hoarding has proved useful in events.
    • The other "Tricks" that dont kill you really dont affect you at all. Just ignore em.
    • Cove is a perfect place because its packed with NPCs.
    • Like begging, you can repeatedly hit up the same NPC. There's just a timer of a few seconds between times.
    • When you die, your body is blown apart. This can make it a pain to find the backpack to loot your candy back. Use Ctrl-Alt.
    • Last year, there were some special items that could only be obtained by a GM Beggar. There's no reason to believe they wont do that again this year. Build that beg skill!
    • Blow a few gold to get a mount for your mule for trick or treating. The mobility makes things easier.

    I think real Halloween costumes added would be awesome. Craftable costumes would be even better. *pokes devs* :thumbup1:

    I was just thinking, something I would love to see for Halloween is an object that when used makes a specific monster noise. I'm opening up a new account for Halloween to create a stealther/necromancer that I'll use to roleplay a restless spirit who haunts the other players. It would be nice if I could follow them in stealth and make a creepy lich laugh, banshee wail, specter moan, or a succubus cry for mood effects.

    Anyone ever stay in their homes and wait for trick or treaters, lol?? Or put treats in a bag for free on their vendors? I did that years ago and dropped runes. I missed a lot being gone in 2008 some of the best halloween treats and the spring event! *kicks self*

    I vote for the costumes, awesome treats/tricks, some really cool deco's and perhaps....
    a haunted castle, that I can show up in my costume in. :)

    I'd be more afraid of finding rotten chicken lizard eggs in my mail box!

    of note... I believe costumes would be awesome! like the ability to costume as a Juka Lord (lose karma but walk amongst the juka) or maybe something alone those lines. Already feasible for orcs and goblins..

    Well so far, we have Jellybeans, Taffy, a variety of Lollipops and named pumpkins. Alas no more Evil Twins but Naughty ones that take half your candy and teleport you to a different gate then where you were originally.

    A carved pumpkin and some scary thing that makes noises that I can lock down on my porch would be cool (and the Abyss shard lol)
