*grumbles as he pulls himself out of bed* Who decided starting these events at noon was a good idea? I’d love to shank the fellow… ahem. Greetings, villagers from far and wide! You may be delighted to hear that the Great Harvest has come, and we at Dragonsmaw Manor are thrilled to welcome you into the dark, creepy recesses of our home…

…with CANDY.

The Great Harvest is an event where we tirelessly plant pumpkins and carve them into Jack O Lanterns, where upon you can place them onto your doorstep and be blessed by the candies found within.

Begin by collecting your Pumpkin Carving kit by clicking on your own profile.

These pumpkin seeds you receive shall become your way of life. Use your herbalists to grow pumpkins, and your carving kit to shape them into the most beautiful of Jack O Lanterns.

Get it? Your skills will improve as you work at it, not all of us can be instant artists, hmhmmhmm.

You may want to keep these, they could very well be useful in the future.

Be sure to place your Jack O Lanterns on your doorstep (which is also located on your profile) so that the candy fairy who is most certainly not me can visit your doorstep every ten minutes and deposit goodies into your Jack O Lanterns.

But what good is the treat without the trick, hmm? Well, my fine ladies, gentlemen, and assorted others, you may find it pleasing that you can exert your will upon the doorsteps of others. What good would our Harvest celebration be if it were without some mayhem and trickery?

Earn yourself some positive Karma (who needs that?) by depositing additional Jack O Lanterns and candies into the Jack O Lanterns of your fellow villagers. If you have high Karma, you will find yourself attracting Batbats (hey, it’s baseball season, and even we at Dragonsmaw Manor have a fondness for the sport).

Earn yourself some negative Karma (yes, excellent) by smashing the pumpkins of your fellows, and stealing their candy before they can withdraw it. If you have low Karma, you will find yourself attracting these curious little Ectoplasm.

Clearly, you need to both trick and treat to earn the full swarth of creatures the candy fairy may deliver to your Jack O Lanterns, yes? Yes. It does indeed seem so.

“And what are we doing with this candy, Chester?” you might ask. Well, that is an excellent question. It is one that I have many answers to (see, sometimes the choice is yours, fate has not determined your path, etc). You can convert your candy into Candy Points, or you can eat your candy to earn score toward the Feast. Whichever appeals to you more I assume, however do not forget to withdraw candies from your doorstep or you may find your fellow villagers stealing it more often than not.

Note, however, that the candies (as inventory items) have an expiration date of 14 days, which means that they shall all disappear as soon as that fourteen day passes. Candies do not last forever, my friends. It is a most unfortunate truth to the universe.

Don’t forget to peruse the Karma boards and find out who is being nicest and naughtiest… and exact your judgement upon them however you feel appropriate.

“Chester, what about all of these other items we found perusing the museum archives” you ask? Hahahaha… it seems you will have to wait until the second half of the event to learn more about these, my friends.

Because I wouldn’t be a trickster if I didn’t leave you with some mysteries, now would I?

The second half of the event will begin October 22nd. On that day, the Candy Shop shall open with glorious treats and plushes (after I get an idea of how many candies you feisty bunch have gathered), you shall begin growing pumpkins with the extra goal of pleasing me with the Harvest’s Largest Pumpkin, and these mysteries shall be solved, and—



Wait.

Has anyone seen my hat? My goodness, where did it go now…

    • As a suggestion can you make it so that all colors of the animals/pets have a chance of dropping if you have really high or low karma? This event encourages going either really low or really high with your karma as quickly as possible and given the limit on jack-o-lanterns, it makes quickly getting raising or lowering it difficult. So a smaller chance for all the colors to drop depending on someone's high/low karma would be great.


    • Khimi Closing your door doesn't award you any candy unless they've changed it since yesterday.


    • It keeps saying I can't fit any more on my doorstep but I've tried clearing it and checking my inventory. I feel bad as some people just giftbombed me and I don't know what I'm doing. :c


    • Community Shout Out: Folks please remember the event isn't even 24 (48?) hours old yet and the Site Staff are probably more than aware of and are trying to fix all event related issues! I would say for the time being be doubly careful about reading what you click!
      1. Candies must remain in your Jack-O-Lantern to give candy
      2. Withdrawing candies CURRENTLY makes them ineligible for converting (but I'd stake a paintie ticket on this already being worked on!)
      3. Withdrawn candies do no stack and take up invo space so if you have 80 candies, prepare 80 invo slots
      4. Closing your door still earns candies (may need more testing?)

      Please try and be patient a little longer, the mods and staff are always quick into action and tend to extend whatever time was lost!


    • Why didnt someone mention that taking candy out of your pumpkins would make it useless? I thought it would be more like the pirate thing, so frustrating!


    • Goku-san
      People get candy every 15 minutes, and pumpkins are endless to make to keep 50 on everyone's doorstep. It's pretty much impossible to "ruin" anyone's progress. It's really no big deal. It's fun.


    • I still get an error when trying to give candy...even with candy in my pumpkin and more candy in my inventory, and when my doorstep is open.


    • So now we cant convert the candy to points from inventory? That's not fair, i sometimes mistakenly click the withdraw button by mistake. Isnt there a way we can toss them back in to get converted?


    • Do I have to actually have candy in my pumpkins to give candy?


    • Winchester
      One other thing that's a bit unfair that I just noticed.. I smashed pumpkins just to get 2 of those minipets.. But smashing is waay easier than giving back since the doorstep limit is 50.. So you can smash all you want but you can't give all you want.. :/ I guess it's karma.. (no pun intended..)

      I haven't got any trouble yet
