Halloween 2010 brought back some popular Halloween-related activities from previous years as well as new additions and special items to celebrate the holiday. It went live with Publish 68.3 and scheduled to end November 15, 2010.
Trick or Treat
There are 4 new treats as well as the old ones. These can be obtained by simply walking up to an Npc, saying "Trick or Treat" and then targeting them.
Beware - NPC's may opt to play a trick on players instead of giving them a treat.
If a character has Grandmaster (100.0 skill) Begging there is a small chance to receive a special treat from previous years or one of the four new rare treats.

Little is known of his motive, but know that giving treats to hellhounds this time of year is not for the faint of heart! Double clicking the treat and targeting a Hell Hound will transform it to an Ancient Hellhound. Bloody Sashes are rewarded to those who can kill these beasts. Equipping a Bloody Sash will transform your appearence to resemble a werewolf.
Farmers once again could harvest pumpkins this season. Pumpkins could be picked up from most any farm land. Some of them may be double-clicked and thrown as a fire bomb. Additionally, the named pumpkins may be used with the Cooking skill to prepare food items requiring pumpkin. The pumpkins can weigh anywhere from 3-25 stones and very rarely a Jack O' Lantern will spawn.
Jack O' Lanterns
Very rarely, a named pumpkin spawned as a large Jack O' Lantern with a carved face. They spawned in a variety of designs and can be locked down in a player's home and left lit or unlit.
Pumpkins are named after characters that logged recently.
