Trick ARRR Trinket!

Frighteningly cute!

Once again this Halloween season, tis time to plunder Sea Monster Lairs and waylay any Brigand Kings ye find. Lucky pirates may be awarded Ghastly Trinkets! There's an increase in monster activity in Sea Monster Lairs, but that may give ye adventurous pirates more treasure!

Once ye have a nice pile o’ the new sweets, head over to the Trading Post. Five trinkets can be exchanged for new monster dolls! Hold a witch, mummy or lantern king doll in a portrait to immortalize this year’s haunting exploits. If ye have stale candy from previous years, ye'll not be able to trade them for the new dolls. The Department o' Treasury wants only the freshest candy for their Halloween festival.

Once ye have yer fill of sweetened treats and expanded yer monster doll collection, use the sugar rush to beat back the hordes of skellies, zombies and werewolves that assail the land!

The oceans run red, and the candy madness last until November 3rd, 2014!

A Frightful Fall!

BOO!

Tis the season for apple bushels and scarecrows, pumpkin muffins and vampire teeth! Visit the Palace Shoppe to get yer fill o' seasonal trinkets such as Pumpkin Spice Latte and fall Oak Leaves. This year, be sure to get yer hook into the new trinkets created by players, including a Ghostly Cookie and Black Cat Doll. Ye’ll find nice selection of festive masks, top hats and vampire raiment for all yer haunting undertakings.

Visit yer local furnisher shoppe for furniture and ship items. Create a ghastly setting with skelly chairs and tables, cannons, helms and figureheads. Stock up on seasonal decorative furniture including pumpkins, jack o’ lanterns, scarecrows, and bushels of apples. Ye'll want to paint a portrait to celebrate yer favorite haunts, so the palace painter is stocked with seasonal portrait backgrounds.

Enjoy haunting yer hearties until November 3rd!

A Dazzling Box!

October’s Gold Box has dazzling contents that will put mother nature’s colors of autumn to shame. The patchy fox has orange fur with a white, black or purple handkerchief. If ye can spot em, primary colors for the chameleon familiar are maroon, brown and violet.

Combine those with golden trinkets, furniture and pets, plus the richness of chocolate trinkets and chroma for the true feeling of the harvest. For a wee bit o’ contrast, try purple hair (at least temporarily) with violet volumizer hair dye. This box has black crystal balls. What do ye see when ye gaze into the darkness?
