Happy Halloween everyone! Today I felt like checking up on Ordale again to see what festivities might be going on for Halloween.
The outside of my house looks much the same as in my first and last post on Ordale (and the same as it did around 6 years ago, in fact :P), only the grass and trees have changed to Fall colors since then.
I was hoping that Nook might be selling a few pieces of candy today, so that I could at least participate a bit in trick-or-treeting, but it looks like I missed out.
Still, I decided I would try to participate anyway and thought this concierge shirt I found at the dump would be a good enough costume. 😛
Confused at the lack of trick-or-treeting going on, I went on a search for the town bulletin board. The post office seemed like the most logical place for it to be after playing AC:WW for so many years.
But it wasn’t there, so I checked the police station next. Man, I’ve really forgotten how to play this game…
I thought for sure Copper might have some information about today, but all he had to say was that Crazy Redd’s going to come on November 5th. 😛
Well, I gave up on that and began a mission to rid Ordale of 6 years of weeds. Maybe I should’ve just looked for Wisp later… 😛
But I got it done in the end. 🙂 I find it easier to de-weed in AC:GC because you can focus on one acre at a time.
I have a few of these half-grown trees around town that have stunted in their growth, what’s up with that? 😕 I hope I can axe them down, or else they’ll be a real eyesore.
Wow, after all the weeds were pulled, the wishing well had this to say, which I didn’t expect at all. 😮 Ordale couldn’t possibly be close to perfect if it was an AC:WW or AC:CF town, I assume that AC:GC’s standards must be lower (which makes sense, there’s no gold watering can reward).
So I guess junk on the ground doesn’t matter? I wanted to pick everything up anyway, but Nook wouldn’t let me sell anything today because of the monthly raffle.
While taking that picture I finally found the bulletin board — right outside my doorstep. 😆
Still no information about what time the festivities start, but I was just relieved that there were definitely going to be some. 😛 After seeing the notice about buying candy, though, I was sure that I wouldn’t be getting any of the spooky series.
Trick-or-treeting began at 6 PM and this music began to play.
The first costumed neighbor I ran into was Freckles, who demanded candy as soon as she saw me walk by.
I tried giving her a pear and got my hopes up when she ate it, but she wasn’t pleased. 😛
My concierge costume turned to rags. 😦 I met many other neighbors and they conducted themselves in a similar fashion, but I didn’t waste any more fruit on them, haha.
Finally I found the real Jack, distinguishable as being the only pumpkin-head who doesn’t run up to you when seen.
I hoped my conversation with Jack might go differently from my neighbors’, but it was pretty much the same thing.
My already raggedy clothes were transformed into rags yet again, but when I checked my pockets, I noticed lots of jack-o-lanterns and jack-in-the-boxes there:
Hey, they might not be items from the spooky series, but I thought the jack-o-lantern in particular was a really cool gift. I think they replaced items that were in my inventory, though, similar to how rags replace the clothes you’re wearing. I wasn’t carrying anything important, though. 🙂
(I really need to figure out how to change my roof color and door window. >_<) Overall it was fun and I'm glad Ordale is now weed-free, but next time I'd better prepare by stocking up candy first. xP
