Starting today (October 24th), you can participate in this year’s Halloween event! This year brings about a new kind of event, where you all have to work together to get the prize! You can now go trick-or-treating at other lots to receive lots and lots of delicious candy . But watch out! There are zombies running amok in Sunrise Crater! Defeat them quickly before all your precious worldly possessions are broken! Vanquish them to receive even more candy! But don’t worry, you have two whole weeks to gather up enough candy and bring it to this year’s event lot; The Hallowed Village, conveniently located in D.A.M.N.
Better put on your best costume and start trick-or-treating and or zombie vanquishing, event ends November 6th!
Getting some Candy
The best way to get candy is to trick or treat around player and community lots! There are two timers governing candy: A global timer for one candy every 5 minutes, and a bonus candy the first time you visit that property each day. Jumping around trick or treating everywhere is obviously the most effective, but you can still hang out in the same spot and get a piece every 5 minutes. It’s up to you – but don’t try to take candy too often or you’re in for a… shock.
When a candy bowl is in a lot, however, a zombie will eventually show up! This horrible monster will attempt to break a random object on the property… but you have the power to stop it! Together with a group of ideally 4 people, you can banish the zombie for a large candy bonus. This requires a lot of people though – with only one or two, the zombie may have already destroyed a few objects by the time it works! If you own a property and don’t want the zombie around, you can always bribe it to leave… but then you lose precious candy. :'(
Got enough candy from bowls and zombies? Head on over to the well at The Hallowed Village. You think there’s something in there? Nope, no way. It is a perfectly normal, empty well. Throw your candy down without looking, and watch the community total soar sky high. (or increment by one, if you are terribly selfish)
As they’re met, we’ll be announcing new milestones and object ingame and on discord, so keep an eye out over the next two weeks! There are some really crazy objects we have lined up for you.
Even after donating candy, you can keep track of how much you’ve contributed by checking the candy entry in your inventory. We’ll occasionally be announcing the top donators on Discord, and there may even be personal milestones and awards offered by Madge Cal herself…
The candy counter in The Hallowed Village will unlock new objects for everyone when you hit set milestones… but what are they? Well, that’s a cool surprise so I’ll just divert the question – what do we have apart from these?
We have some all new halloween items in the catalog, thanks to S1ndle, AOG, Raeven and Alex. Among these is a really cool cauldron stove with some really cool custom scripting. Find them in various sections – they won’ t be there forever!
Are you a big fan of the halloween items from previous events? You can get another chance at them at The Hallowed Village… but it won’t be easy!
