This year, the air felt different. There were sparks on the wind. You walk outside on the eve of October and the air crackles with electricity. Something is up...

Making your way back to the barracks you spot what looks to be a small pumpkin sitting on the ground. Never having been the brightest sword in the ummm.. sword box and being quite drunk at this time of night, you decide to go up and smash it to smithereens. Absently you wonder who Smith was and how he had such bad luck.

As you approach the pumpkin, a voice carries on the wind barely above a whisper.

"And so it begins..."




FAQ
Are there only one of each Halloween monster? Or are these timed (weekly)? There's only one of each.
Do twins double the drops (gold, potions, tokens) of Halloween monsters or not? No, these are more like rare monsters. Special event mosters if you will.
Imp: We can't hit it first 3 rounds, so any weapon we can use is out of the question (staff, sword, slingshot, arrow, Spock's weapon, ...). So much is clear. But what about a cat or a poison potion? Does it affect the imp in the first round? He's too quick. He'd dodge anything you tried to toss at him, even your trusty kitty. They're really rather mean little things.

October 1
A Small Pumpkin - 0 Attack 1 Health
What did this pumpkin ever do to you? It spent its entire life peacefully basking in the sun, living in the Meadow on lot 432 subsection 5. It's never done anything to anyone. You just had to go and ruin it.

Rewards: 1 Gold Coin, 1 XP and the Heart of a Baby Pumpkin

A Mouse - 3 Attack 15 Health
Harmless to all but elephants, the mighty mouse is not really so mighty. You spot him scurrying along the path and you run after him determined to pay him back for the holes in your best pink pantyhose last fall.

Rewards: 1 Major Heal Potion, 2 XP, and Essence of Mouse

An Actually Dead Skeleton - 6 Attack 20 Health
That mouse was no match for you. You're feeling mighty proud of yourself. You can almost see the title hovering above your head "Sir Knight, Mouse Slayer." Completing your victory lap for the 3rd time, you suddenly stumble and fall over a pile of old dusty bones. Your fall causes them to jumble around in the air and one bonks you on the head. Ow!

Rewards: 1 Potion Token, 3 XP, and Essence of Still Death

October 4
Fruit Bat - 4 Attack 25 Health - The fruit bat sucks half of your life force (HP) out of you upon entering battle. (Round down on health loss when dividing. 5 current HP would remove 2 HP and leave 3 HP)

You stand back up with a wry smile. Mayhaps your title should be "Sir Knight, Skeleton Shifter." You think to yourself that it's probably time to be getting home. Turning around you feel a sting on your cheek and a droplet of blood runs down your face. The stealthy fruit bat has found another victim. Maybe you shouldn't have drunk so much apple mead.

Rewards: 1 Mercenary Coupon, 4 XP, and Essence of Life Force

Re-Animated Corpse - 500 Attack 500 Health
Yeah... this isn't going to go well. You see your buddy Paul... your late buddy Paul... stumbling out of the graveyard and he looks Amped. Deciding to live and fight another day you wisely make the decision to flee.

October 6
Imp - 25 Attack 5 Health - You're going to miss this little bugger 3 times before you finally hit him.
This is not your month. First bats, then Paul. You shudder to think what is next. Trying your best to make it home you peer from behind a tree, see the coast is clear then take a run for it. Before you can make it three steps you feel a sharp jab in your shoulder. Ow! And another. Ow! And a third. Ow! Finally, you manage to get your weapon out and take a swipe at whatever it is that keeps poking you.

October 7
Spider - 10 Attack 35 Health - The spider has bitten you! Every other hit the spider is going to do double damage starting on the second hit. (First round 10 attack, second round 20 attack, third round 10 attack, etc.)
You finally manage to slay the annoying little imp. As you lay on the ground panting and trying to wipe off imp guts (they're a greenish sort of pink color with maybe a little orange mixed in), you look to the right. There... right in front of you... is.... a leaf. Well, that's not so bad. The leaf starts to move in the wind. It blows away and before you know it a huge spider jumps from behind it and bites you right on the nose! You start to feel woosy but try to bat at the spider. You think squashing it might be a good plan but maybe you're supposed to feed it dinner and provide a movie first, you're not quite so sure on etiquette these days.

Rewards: 1 Minor Poison Potion, 7 XP, and Essence of Venom

You finally manage to squash the spider. You hang your head panting trying to make the spinning stop. Suddenly, a lady clad in leather runs up next to you. "I'm Miffy the Monster Slayer, quick follow me!" Without quite knowing why you run after her.

Miffy the Monster Slayer
10 Attack, 10 HP - Miffy can be used on October Monsters starting October 8th. Miffy earns the same experience that you do on monsters. She will attack right after you attack. You can choose to tell her to not attack or to attack instead of you as well. Monsters will switch attacks first attacking you and then attacking her their next turn. If Miffy dies then she'll need to be resurrected and she won't gain experience that battle.

Miffy Levels - Miffy will heal completely upon levelling.
Level 1 - 10 experience, +2 HP & Attack
Level 2 - 20 experience, +2 HP & Attack
Level 3 - 30 experience, +2 HP & Attack

October 8
Pumpkinhead - 8 Attack 60 Health
You follow Miffy into a clearing and in front of you stands a man like creature with a pumpkin for a head. His gaping hole of a mouth oozes pumpkin guts. He spits a seed to the ground and charges! Your last thought before battle was that you should have left the baby pumpkin alone.

Rewards: 1 Halloween Resurrection Potion, 8 XP, and Essence of Pumpkin

Troll - 12 Attack 60 Health
Miffy turns to you, wipes pumpkin guts on her pants leg and says, "Hey, you're pretty good at this monster slaying business. Partners?" She extends her hand. You shake it because hey, why not. You hear a rumbling behind you. The ground starts to shake. You turn and.... "TROLL!" Miffy yells as she runs forward into battle.

Rewards: 1 Potion Token, 9 XP, and Essence of Strength

October 10
Miffy's Ex-Boyfriend - 20 Vampire Attack 150 Health - Vampire attack pulls HP from you and heals the monster or the same amount.
Your last battle with the troll has left you slightly worried that Miffy isn't really all there. You start to try to edge her towards home when she shrieks and hides behind a tree. "It's him," she whispers. You look over and see a stunningly gorgeous specimen of a man who seems to glimmer in the torchlight. "Him?" you inquire. "Yes him!" she whispers loudly. He opens his mouth and 2 shimmering fangs appear. I guess you'll have to do something about "Him".

Rewards: 10 XP, 2 Potion Tokens, 1 Lapis Lazuli Orb

Warlock - 5 Attack 200 Health - Warlocks increase in attack strength by +2 every turn.
Miffy looks a bit queasy after her run-in with her ex-un-dead-boyfriend-now-re-dead. You usher her along trying to console her. After a while, you look up. A shiver runs down your spine. You don't recognize this neck of the woods at all. You could be in the elbow or even the knee of the woods. You hear a noise from the bushes beside you.

Rewards: 11 XP, 1 Mercenary Coupon, 1 Essence of Fire

October 12
Spirit - 15 Attack 60 Health - Spirits will switch the last 2 digits of your health at the end of each turn. Example: Hero starts with 36 health, Miffy starts with 20 health. Hero attacks Spirit, Miffy attacks spirit, Spirit attacks hero for 15 damage. Hero at 21 health, Miffy at 20 health. Spirit curses health. Hero at 12 health, Miffy at 02 health. If health is 3 digits (example 123 HP) only the last two digits change (example: 123 HP to 132 HP).
You and Miffy barely survived the last encounter. You're not entirely sure Miffy did. You're considering advising Miffy to find a new profession as her current one doesn't seem to be one she is particularly suited for. The mist is gathering, filling the glade with a deep ethereal presence.... oh... it's a ghost.

Rewards: 12 XP, 1 Monster Re-breather (spawns common monsters every day for 1 week), 1 Essence of Ice

Grimlock - 20 Attack 100 Health - Each round with this monster lowers your maximum health by 5 points. To restore your maximum health after the fight to normal levels consume one book with the letters S, U and N in the title.
Shaken from the encounter with the spirit. You're not exactly sure how you held up. You feel strange. Miffy is looking a bit strange too. "Let's head for cover!" you yell. You both run towards an old abandoned building on the outskirts of town. What could go wrong? You open the door and from inside peer a set of glowing eyes.

Rewards: 13 XP, 4 Potion Tokens, 1 Essence of Earth

October 14
Banshee - 15 Attack 80 Health - Miffy and you will have to take turns on this one! Every round only the person the banshee won't attack is able to attack, otherwise you need your eyes closed! (Example: Hero eyes closed, Miffy attacks, Banshee attacks Hero, Round 1 End, Hero attacks, Miffy eyes closed, Banshee attacks Miffy, Round 2 End.)
You finish sweeping out the last of the Grimlock dust from your cabin. You turn and shut the door and add a deadbolt or 4. Sinking down onto the floor you close your eyes and breathe deeply. Suddenly a noise from outside, a high pierced shrieking sound! The window implodes in and a banshee sweeps into the room. Miffy runs forward, "Don't look at her eyes!"

Rewards: 14 XP, 30 Gold, 1 Essence of Wind

October 15
Necromancer - 15 Attack 100 Health - Every round before the Necromancer attacks, he summons a skeleton. Then he attacks followed by each of his skeletons. They will all attack the current target of that round. Both the Hero and Miffy have the option to give up an attack turn to place 1 Essence around the room. Placing the Essence of Fire, Essence of Ice, Essence of Earth and Essence of Wind around the room will bind the Necromancers powers and stop him from being able to summon more skeletons. Existing skeletons will continue to be an issue until defeated.
Skeleton - 5 Attack 30 Health
Miffy seems to have recovered from her previous ordeal and has a newfound light shining in her eyes. Oh... wait... that's from something glowing under the floorboards. You scamper back against the wall as the floor explodes and a creature emerges.

Rewards: 15 XP, 4 Shield Potions 4 Major Heal Potions, 1 Black Onyx Orb

October 16
Will-o'-the-wisp - 10 Attack 120 Health - The Will-o'-the-wisp will zap the strength of the Hero and Miffy every turn cutting their attack power in half. (Example: Round 1, Hero attacks full power, Miffy attacks full power, Will-o'-the-wisp halves attack, Will-o'-the-wisp attacks, Round 2, Hero attacks half power, Miffy attacks half power, Will-o'-the-wisp halves attack, Will-o'-the-wisp attacks, Round 3, Hero attacks one fourth power, Miffy attacks one fourth power, Will-o'-the-wisp halves attack, Will-o'-the-wisp attacks.) Attack at each stage can be rounded up to the next whole number.

You and Miffy both agree that the cabin is a bad idea. You flee back into the forest. Up ahead you see a bright light. "The Town!" you both exclaim. You hurry to follow the little flickering light.

Rewards: 16 XP, 1 Miffy's Hat (+1 Attack Miffy), 1 Essence of Dandelion

October 17
Adarna - 20 Attack 150 Health - A magical bird that when attacking hits the opponent and then puts them asleep until they are hit again. (Example: (Round 1) Hero hits Adarna, Miffy hits Adarna, Adarna hits Hero, Hero asleep, (Round 2) Hero sleeping, Miffy hits Adarna, Adarna hits Miffy, Miffy asleep, (Round 3) Hero sleeping, Miffy sleeping, Adarna hits Hero, Hero wakes up! etc.) You may use either Miffy or the Hero to hit the other person instead of Adarna as your turn.

You finally snuff the life out of that strange little ball of light. Stupid thing. You look around. You are well and truly lost. Sitting on the ground with Miffy you start to plan out how to escape the forest when the softest of lullabies starts to play... you start to nod off...

Fairy - 10 Attack 60 Health - These are tricky little devils. At the start of the battle, they steal all your stuff, even your cat! No weapon, no shield, no rock, no cat, no mercenary, they didn't seem to want Miffy for some reason. You manage to snag your bag of potions back. You'll have to fight with fists which only have 2 starting attack.

You shake off the last of your sleep. As you stand up a small fairy darts by and steals your sword. Then another one comes for your staff. There are fairies everywhere! Your cat is gone, your rock is gone, even your mercenary is gone somehow. The last fairy flies by and grabs your potion bag. You lunge grabbing it back. The fairy turns and attacks!

Rewards: 18 XP, All your stuff (the other fairies got scared when you killed this one), 1 Miffy's Shield (+1 Defense Miffy (reduces damage by 1 on Miffy), 1 Essence of Echinacea

Brownie - 10 Attack 120 Health - Brownies are sadly less chocolatey and more gold thieves. This Brownie will steal 2 Gold at the beginning of his attack every turn!

You strap your sword back on your belt and sling your magical staff over your shoulder. You've just finished strapping your bag of gold onto your belt when you notice it's a bit lighter than normal. You glance over and see a small imp-like creature staring at you. It's holding one of your coins! Thief!

Leprechan - 30 Attack Immortal - Nothing strikes fear in the hearts of mortals and gods alike as the mighty Leprechaun does. If the leprechaun could somehow be damaged you have heard that coating your weapon in a gold coin will allow your weapon attacks to hit for double damage. Gold must be re-applied every attack.

Rewards: 20 XP, 1 "Stunning" Collar ("Stunning" collar will allow your cat to stun an enemy once every 2 weeks. A stunned enemy will skip all actions on their part for 1 turn including damage increases or debuffs on the hero). Only one collar may be worn at a time.), 1 Ruby Orb

Wizard - 15 Attack + Fireball 200 Health - The Wizard will cast a fireball at you every turn in addition to his normal attack. The fireball will hurt you for 5 damage. However, it also lights you on fire. Being on fire will cause you 1 damage every round. The next fireball (directed at you) will light you on more fire which will cause 2 damage every round (and so on and so forth until you're really really fired up). You can cure 1 unit of fire by dousing yourself with a book whose title starts with the letters I, C, E, W, A, T, or R. (You can also douse Miffy with her own book).

Miffy is pissed after the Leprechaun. All traces of the paleness from before are gone. Her skin glows with pure fury. She storms off with a quick "Come!" yelled back to you.

You hurry after her. As you catch up to her you ask "Where are we going?!?" as you huff completely out of breath.

"To end this once and for all!" She crests the hill and comes to a stop before a huge tower with a pulsating blue light at the top. With a deep breath, she yells and runs to the door kicking it in. She turns to the first creature she sees inside and attacks!

Magician - 10 Heal 120 Health - The Magician curses you to instant death upon reaching full health. You are allowed to poison yourself or attack yourself if you want to. Good luck. (Magician will not heal you over full health. If you hit full health you die. Life isn't fair sometimes.)

As the first wizard falls, you hear a shout from behind you. As you turn you see a brilliant blue ball of light and a feeling of dread washes over you.

Rewards: 22 XP, 2 Weakening Potions, 2 Damage Potions, 1 Blue Stone

Alchemist - 15 Attack 100 Health - The Alchemist will mirror any potion effects that are applied to the Hero or Miffy. (example. Hero uses Major Heal Potion. Hero Heals 15 HP. Alchemist heals 15 HP.)

You're not entirely sure which side of death you're on. Probably the dead side. You groan but Miffy pulls you along into the next room.

The room is lined with hundreds of tiny bottles of various colors. A large cauldron is bubbling in the center of the room. From around the corner, a wizened old man appears. His eyes grow wide. You quaff a potion in preparation for the fight and see a flash around the man. He appears to be a bit more robust now.

October 24
Sorcerer - 40 Attack 500 Health - Upon entering the battle the sorcerer immediately casts a spell that halves both your and Miffy's attack power every round at the start of the round. Attack power is halved before any modifiers are applied. Start of the second-round attack is at 1/4, the start of third-round attack is at 1/8, etc.

Two rooms remain in the house. You gingerly finger your health potion and sip at it peering at the next guy. He doesn't look any different. It must be ok. As you sit pondering to yourself, Miffy yells "YAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!" and runs into the room.

Rewards: 24 XP, 2 HP Bounce Potions, 1 Yellow Stone

HP Bounce Potion: Not able to be purchased for potion tokens at this time. Upon using this potion, the next time the hp of your hero (or Miffy) go below 0 the HP will bounce and go up to the number it would have been below 0. (Example: HP has 20 HP, Hero uses HP Bounce Potion, Monster attacks for 50 damage, Hero takes 20 damage, bounces, gains 30 hp. Hero has 30 HP).

Magus - 30 Attack 750 Health - The Magus is a master of numbers and a bit odd overall. If at the end of the round Magus's hp add up to an odd number he will steal 13 HP from his attack target for the turn. (Example: Round 1. Hero hits Magus, Miffy hits Magus, Magus hits Hero. Round 1 ends. Magus HP = 321. 3+2+1 = 6, 6 is even. Round 2. Hero hits Magus, Miffy hits Magus, Magus hits Miffy. Round 2 ends. Magus HP 294. 2+9+4 = 15. Miffy - 13 HP, Magus + 13 HP.)
Attacks on Magus can be magnified using the 4 colored stones.
- Red Stone - Double base attack damage from hero and Miffy for the turn
- Blue Stone - Triple base attack damage from hero and Miffy for the turn
- Green Stone - Quadruple base attack damage from hero and Miffy for the turn
- Yellow Stone - x5 total attack (after bonuses) damage from hero and Miffy for the turn

Finally, you approach the middle room. You look into your potion bag sadly and curse the sorcerer. What type of mad scientist would think that such a creature existed? With a sigh, you rotate the door handle and enter the inner sanctum. Your eyes open wide as you spy thousands of tiny numbers whirling in random patterns in the air. The man in the center of the room turns, in his eyes flash the sign π. He is clearly irrational. Miffy runs in screaming "ATTACK!" She might be irrational as well.

Rewards: 25 XP, 2 Greater Poison Potions, 1 Jade Orb

Greater Poison Potion: Not able to be purchased for potion tokens at this time. Poisons the monster causing 10 amount of additional damage at the beginning of the turn.

As the Magus dies a flash of light comes from the center of the room. Uh oh. You glance over to his spell book. "To Resurrect the Dead." This can't be good. Six glowing balls of energy fly from the pit in the center of the room. Quickly, you slam the book closed and douse the flame. The hole in the ground resettles til it appears completely flat again.

You and Miffy decide to venture outside to see what may have happened.

Ghost of Big Heart - 15 Attack 120 Health - A large pinkish yet semi-translucent Yeti that only shows up during Hallmark holidays (I'm sure they sell Halloween cards). It used to have a big heart and a soft spot for weakness and death and destruction. Use your weaker (lower level) weapon for an additional 6 damage. If your weapons are the same strength either may be used for the damage bonus. Miffy can't bring herself to attack the big fluffy thing and just stands there awestruck of its cuteness.

Immediately upon stepping outside, you see something that looks vaguely familiar from an era long ago. You look over at Miffy. Her eyes are big. From her mouth you hear, "it's so adorable! Squeeee!" Rolling your eyes you advance.

Rewards: 26 XP, 1 Greater Poison Potion, 1 HP Bounce Potion, 1 Essence of Cuteness

Ghost of Rock - 50 Attack 300 Health - The rock is not happy that his friend is living the life of glamor as the pet of a Hero while he is lying dead in a ditch, slain by that same hero. Life (and death) is not fair. This rock can bewitch your rock to hit you in the head at the start of each turn for 5 damage. (Your rock will hit the current target of that turn. Whether it be Miffy or the Hero.) Needless to say, your rock won't be helping you out in this battle. (If you have not received a rock, feel glad that you can avoid being hit, but the Ghost of Rock will still not like you, but for other reasons, deep seated reasons, you shouldn't ask, it's not healthy to know.)

You've finished dispatching the Ghost of Big Heart. His corpse (ghostly corpse? photo plasm?) falls to the ground, flickers, and fades. Miffy snaps out of it. She takes a step forward right onto a rock. It attacks?!?

Rewards: 27 XP, 2 Stoneskin Potion, 1 Essence of Hardness

Stoneskin Potion: Completely blocks all damage taken by the Hero or Miffy for a single turn.

Ghost of Woollymark - 30 Attack 5000 Health - Each round, you can throw a book at the Ghost of Woollymark (book is lost) and double the attack of both the Hero and Miffy for the rest of the fight. Additional books (one per round) can be thrown to double the current attack (i.e. x4, x8, x16, etc.)

That rock was mean. Something terrible must have happened to it in a previous life. You look up, against the tree line you see a shimmer. Then the creature turns! It's a Woollymark! You thought they were extinct. Your mother has a Woollymark jacket but it's very rare. As it comes closer, the light seems to pass through it. Uh oh.

Ghost of A Pain Giant - 30 Attack 600 Health - The pain giants attack increases every round by 5. (+5 at the start of the second round).

The Woollymark was something you never thought you would see in the wild. Perhaps you didn't really see it now that you think about it. Up ahead the moon is a bit fuzzy, the light wavers a bit, you see the outline of something large. Oh, this is going to hurt.

Rewards: 29 XP, 6 Potion Tokens, 1 Essence of Ouchness

Ghost of A Baby Book - 400 Attack 400 Health - This baby book got mean. It appears that after it died it became a classic with a cult following and gained a whole bunch of oomph with it.

Edit Without Mercy

You laugh maniacally as you swing at The Source as the darkness starts to fade. You look around for Miffy. With a shriek, you run over to her laying weakly on the ground. Suddenly, the Source reaches out and grabs onto her foot and pulls her into the shrinking void.

You try to reach out to her but she slips through your fingers. Her voice echoes on the wind. "Be strong Hero. It is my time but yours is just beginning. Do not feel sad, but remember me always." A bright light pours from her as the last of the evil is sucked from the world.

Blinking, you clear your eyes. Before you sits a single pumpkin that sparkles in the light.

Dawn breaks over the horizon.

You have survived.
