    One of my most favorite was prior to trammel. There were gates at each city that would transform us into some creature. I was a Vesper resident and when I logged in I selected the starting city and was a chicken. So about 20 of us went up to attack the Minoc residents, which were all Stags. It was an epic battle with all uf us saying, "Cluck, Cluck". Later we all saw a human. I remember saying protect the human and all uf us followed this human around. He said he was from Britain so we started a travel across the land toward Britain to fight in his Britannian war. We ran behind him saying cluck, cluck and the stags were following him. We met up with a cow and We all were saying protect the human and we continued our travel.

    I remember dying a lot and having a great time.

    p.s.
    I think as chickens we couldn't hold weapons and only the Humans could do that sort of thing or use magery. We scratched those stags to death and they kicked the feathers out of us. We scratched so fast fighting humans they couldn't cast.

    My favorite Halloween test had Draconi and Serado on it, maybe 4 years ago or so?

    They had a war inside an Umbra stadium Ophids vs Terathans and they split the players who participated in half and turned their bodies into either an Ophid or a Terathan.

    It was a reenactment of an old war I think.

    That test had zombies who would kill you and eat you and maybe take some of your items, then turn into a zombie of you.

    I got a crimson cincture off someone else's zombie and it was a big thing, so was before they came standard in everyone's bank.

    There was a universal dye tub where we could say the color hue number and dye almost anything, including our pets.

    Costume gates that worked on players and pets also, so I tamed 2 mares and a dev spawned silver steeds so I tamed one of those as well, and took them all through the sheep costume gate then dyed them pretty colors: pink sparkles, glacial purple and I think black with a green eye?

    Zombies and other bad things would spawn around Brit bank and I'd send them to attack, their tiny little sheep bodies were so cute.

    I loved those sheep.

    I never really warmed to the TC Halloweens, I preferred them on a real shard.
     
  5. Same, I never really got into the TC ones, but my favourite on Atlantic was the Headless Horseman one.

    Halloween test shards stink.

    The most fun I ever had in UO for Halloween was the grim reaper that was in all the graveyards. That was pure awesomeness.
