Little is known about the origins of Trick and Treat. Whispers on the wind claim that they are the spirits of dead Criminals and Enforcers called forth on Devil's Night to count the cost of the fallen.
Others claim that they are a pair of local pumpkin farmers, exploiting the superstitious nature of a city at war in order to further their own business interests. Either way, they are here, and have goodies on offer. Just don't be surprised if you feel a sudden, unexplained chill running up your spine - or, for that matter, a craving for pumpkin pie&

My brother and I have set up camp in the Waterfront. We could use some company so feel free to stick around and play! We've got plenty of good, fun gear for you to pick up but be sure to do it sooner rather than later. We don't have a huge amount of time because, well, we're not from around here. We're just passing through.
Have a nice day, now!
If walls could talk...
I realized that I've not told a scary story yet. It just wouldn't be the witching weeks without a scary story would it?
Once upon a time there was a man named Isiah Abington. He'd made his money in the early days of the industrial revolution. He was one of the fine men that helped turn this city into the hub of global trade that it is today. His factories helped give the Nantego its current healthy yellow tinge! Isiah was a man who had money and power. He worked hard for both and was the ultimate self made business tycoon. A real mans man who'd pulled himself up by his own boot straps!
Isiah believed that there was a sickness in the minds of men the world over so he did what any great philanthropist would do: He built a hospital. He housed the homeless, clothed the poor and gave comfort to the insane. But then he realized he was just treating the symptoms rather than finding a cure.
First he tried electroshock therapy on the inmates. Then vast quantities of new and untested medicines that he'd found on his travels around the world. When that didn't work he decided that modern medicine simply didn't hold the key so he decided that trepanning was the only answer. He turned the men, women and children of Abington Towers into brainless zombies.
It was probably for the best when the Asylum and the Abington family fortune began to crumble. Both the name and the building would be lost to history for decades.
The Asylum lay dormant for dozens of years, the patients locked in their rooms to die, cold and alone. It was too far out of the city for anyone to be concerned with; too far in the boondocks for it to be a staging post for the Criminal or Enforcer battles that seem to take up so much time these days.
Abington Towers slowly decayed and turned into the empty husk that you see today. There's so much sadness there. There's so much pain, anger, rage that it's soaked into the walls. It's engrained into the very fabric of reality there.
There's a boy named Terence Piper that's trying to tame Abington Towers. He keeps saying he's the King of the Asylum but we both know that place can never really be ruled. It was given up to the ghosts and spirits that live there full time now, trapped forever. Go say hi sometime.
Lets have a singalong.
Tier 3 is where we keep the theme songs. It's a pretty great tier because they're some pretty great songs made by one of the in house DJs that work with the Powers That Be. Nice boy, that one. Give them a listen and see which one you want to wear around San Paro.
Getting a head of ourselves.
You might have noticed by now that my brother and I have pumpkins where our heads should be.
It's something that we've had to deal with all our lives but I think that, together, we've developed a pretty good coping mechanism of organizing massive slaughterfests once a year!
Trick and I started thinking about how to spread the pumpkin headed joy and we came up with the idea of giving away pumpkin shaped hats. We spoke to a good friend of ours that works for The Powers That Be and they worked some magic. Now you too can have a pumpkin for a head!
You can find them in the Wardrobe editor up in the Breakwater Marina just like any other piece of clothing that you own.
Do you hear voices?
I was just thinking about you. You're doing great work out there and I thought it would be nice to reward you with a token of my appreciation for your good work. A few new titles for you to wear around town to show just how much work you've done this Halloween.
Have you ever noticed just how crazy it is around here? There are men with pumpkin heads telling you to what to do. There's dozens of people working to a mayor that no one knows telling you to kill people. You're being ordered by voices only you can hear to shoot and burn a city to the ground under the pretense of trying to save it?
You ever wonder that maybe you were always meant to be in the Asylum? Maybe you've already been there?
Maybe you went there and you never left?
Food for thought&
The End of It All.
The end is near.
You've been a huge help to me and mine over the last couple of days which is deeply appreciated. It hurts my heart to tell you though that Trick and I are going to be headed off into the sunset soon because I've had a huge amount of fun watching you and yours run around blasting them and theirs!
I want to give you a little present before the end though! It's a new piece of headgear. It's an Aliceband Knife. It's a little bit of fun for the end of Halloween - a knife through the head is fun right?
