It's Porktober 8th!
Head into Seaside Town and do some Trick or Treating!
Witchhat.gif Familiar24.gif Witchhat.gif Familiar24.gif

This holiday, which commemorates some ancient blood rite or other, involves people dressing in weird clothes and going door-to-door threatening to commit acts of petty vandalism unless the homeowner gives you candy. It's good fun for all involved, except the half-orc hoboes, who complain that when they do exactly the same thing, they get arrested.

Details

Halloween is that time of year when Adventurers dress up and scam candy off total strangers. Or something. It occurs each Porktober 8. To go trick-or-treating, you need an outfit. Visit up to twelve houses per block, getting nasty tricks (i.e. combats) or sweet treats for no Adventure cost! Move on to the next block for five Adventures. Trick-or-treating is available both from Trick or Treat! in Seaside Town and the announcement on the main map.

Dates

Special Items

Whatever your outfit, there are ten possible generic results, dependent on the type of house you're visiting:

History

The format of Trick-Or-Treating was drastically changed on October 25, 2013. Instead of being individual adventures in Seaside Town, the "Trick-Or-Treating" adventure zone now opens a block of 12 houses. Selecting a house goes to that house to trick-or-treat. This yields any number of different outcomes. Visiting a house does not cost an adventure.

At any time, you can choose to scope out a new block. This costs 5 adventures, and refreshes all the houses on the block (while also randomizing the house images).

New combat adventures have been observed:

Along with the outfit candies, five new candies are dropping. Three of these grant 10 adventures of an effect granting +15 to either Muscle (Milk Studs,) Mysticality (Box of Dweebs,) or Moxie (Bag of W&Ws.) Also dropped are the booze-enhancing Swizzlers, and the highly "collectable" PEEZ dispensers.

Finally, there is A Fun-Size Dilemma, in which the player is offered a choice to "Take the whole bowl" or "Resist the temptation." Both options will result in a huge bowl of candy.

Prior to the revamp on Halloween XLIV, these six generic adventures occurred instead:

Adventure Treat Notes
The Apathetic Lizardman Mr. Mediocrebar Not Halloween XI
The Market Demon 2-4 Meat Not Halloweens XI, XII
Susie, the Arena Mistress 3 Yummy Tummy beans Not Halloween XI
A Suspicious-Looking Guy Rock Pops Not Halloween XI
The Armorer/Leggerer Daffy Taffy Since Halloween XI
Linnea, the Scream Queen Spooky Surprise Egg Since Halloween XVI

Notes

  • Without an outfit you receive the following message:
You can't go Trick-or-Treating without a costume!
  • You can go Trick-or-Treating while falling-down drunk.
  • You can Trick-or-Treat with zero HP. However, you will immediately lose any combats you encounter.
  • You will receive your outfit's special adventure approximately 40% of the time, and one of the generic adventures the other 60%.
  • According to Xenophobe, there was never an intention for Radio Free Regalia to have its own Halloween yield and adventure.
  • For Halloween XI, the text of the announcement under the main map was changed from "It's Porktober 8th!" to "This is Halloween!" since Halloween XI fell on real life Halloween as opposed to Porktober 8th. This also applies to Halloween XVI.
  • For Halloween XX, the text of the announcement under the main map was changed to "Spooky things are afoot!

    You might as well take advantage of the atmosphere of terror. Click on the Jill-O-Lantern to go Trick-or-Treating in Seaside Town!"
  • For Halloween XXV, the text of the announcement under the main map was changed to "Something strange is afoot in the Distant Woods, and everybody's so freaked out they've started Trick or Treating early!"
  • Prior to Halloween XLV, the text under the announcement was "Click on the Jill-O-Lantern to go Trick-or-Treating in Seaside Town!".

References

  • The announcement change to "This is Halloween!" for Halloween XI is a reference to the intro song of the movie The Nightmare Before Christmas.
  • Almost all of Halloween XI is a mirror of the movie The Nightmare Before Christmas, in which Christmas is taken over by Halloween.
  • The theme of Halloween XX, mutated plant and animal life being the result of a radioactive meteorite, is the same concept as the horror movie Die, Monster, Die!
