Something Wicked This Way Comes

It's that time of year again, when the skies of Rubi-Ka darken and the screeches of terrible creatures fill the air and evil lurks nearby meaning only the courageous dare go outside. This is Halloween!

When witches go riding,
and black cats are seen,
the moon laughs and whispers,
‘tis near Halloween.

Something wicked this way comes

It's that time of year again, when the skies of Rubi-Ka darken and the screeches of terrible creatures fill the air and evil lurks nearby meaning only the courageous dare go outside. This is Halloween!

We have always felt Halloween is a special time in Anarchy Online. Just like you, we look forward to the thrilling hunting trips to find the most elusive creature on Rubi-Ka, Uncle Pumpkinhead, in hopes of reaping the rewards he has on offer.

Uncle Pumpkinhead


Trick or treat

Frankenleet and Draculeet have tricks up their sleeves as always. Want to dress up as a creepy creature, or maybe you want to go hunting indoors for rare and old school items? The leets are only happy to talk to anyone who approaches them, so make sure to visit them in any larger city and other popular areas.

We have also increased the levels of the Halloween missions that they offer so that some of the rarer treats can be collected all the way up to level 200.

Collector's Edition

Limited edition fashions can be found this year as well, but in addition to clothing, the roaming Uncle Pumpkinheads also carry some Halloween items that will beyond doubt be a popular element of the spooky seasonal parties.

The complete limited edition list include: three totally new t-shirts, a gothic lolita dress, pumpkin bikini and boxers, a new stocking item that can switch to different seasonal colors, a pitchfork, a pumpkin basket and last but not least, a very special new doll. All of these exclusive items can be harvested from Uncle Pumpkinhead. There have also been some reports of weird looking candy with mysterious effects. Can you find all ten?

The new cousin


So how and where do you find all these goodies? The dark fog that envelops Rubi-Ka in the week of Halloween is the perfect hiding place for Uncle Pumpkinhead, bloodthirsty and eagerly looking for victims to sow with his scythe. He roams the wilderness of Rubi-Ka and can also be found in special indoors mission that players can get from the Halloween leets.

This year, the infamous miscreant has called in reinforcements and brought his cousin, Griefing Uncle Pumpkinhead. This new brute has let it slip that he intends to patrol the areas with low suppression gas only and there is reason to believe he carries with him some of the planet's rare and sought after weapons, and a very special garment that we think he might be mocking us with. Only those who are willing to compete with others should seek this one out!

Halloween parties

As we decorate and make Rubi-Ka ready for Halloween, we would also like to mention the Halloween romps that our wonderful helpers in ARK throw. If you want to shake your thing and party over the weekends, make sure to visit one of the parties. More information can be found on our forums.
