    It’s October in Britannia! As many of you have noticed the pumpkin patches are once again ripe with pumpkins fresh for picking and the cemeteries have once again fallen under control of the Butchers! Visit a pumpkin patch to find a Jack o’ Lantern. Beware that picking Jack o’ Lanterns can summon the vicious Grimm! Defeat the grim and you may be lucky enough to find a carvable pumpkin. Visit a cemetery to find the Butchers, defeat them and you may find a Jack o’ Lantern carving kit. Using a Jack o’ Lantern carving kit on a carvable pumpkin will give […]

    Last year they said some of the items for the turn in would go away and be replaced by new items . I hope they don't take away the dex boots. I'm almost tempted to go snag 7 or 8 pair just in case.

    Candy with every grimm, 200 or so gp, carvable pumpkin (18-25 stones in weight) 50-60% from each grimm. Butchers provide about 1500 gp a load of crap garg equip and a pumpkin carving kit about 33% of time.

    I was happy... until I found out I'm always too full and cannot enjoy my trick-or-treat candy any more (or those giggle-inspiring toothaches I used to love). :(

    Edit:
    I just tried the candy with one of my hungry characters. The candy acts like ordinary food now - no longer gives the message that you feel like you could more - and you get full just as quickly as you do with ordinary food. Humbug! :(

    I was getting the usual messages after eating candy....you just can't find a good dentist in Britannia...MY TEETH! etc...so it should work.

    I'm confused then... have no idea why it doesn't work with my characters.

    OK... mystery solved. I was trying to munch on licorice, pixi sticks, and rock candy. Those act like ordinary food. When I tried the old-style candies I got the right messages. Doh! :blushing:
