Word on the Streets

Who the fuck is Jimmy Crumbles?

You might have noticed some stuff lying around in Outposts today. Things with ominous names like "Mister Fingers," or "Bumpy Frank," or "Twungle."

These things, my friends, are halloween candies!

Each Halloween Candy will give 5% Stamina and a very small, but very long, Attack and Defence multiplier. There are twenty different types of candy. Buffs from eating more than one of the same candy will cancel each other out as though you'd only eaten one, but buffs from eating different candies will multiply with themselves. The best thing to do is to eat lots of different types of candies!

Halloween Candies are available from the Hunter's Lodge. You get a bag of five random candies for a quarter. Or, you can buy a Candy Bomb, which you can set down in any Outpost and which will explode into many, many candies that anyone can then pick up.

Larger Candy Bombs have a chance to contain smaller Candy Bombs too, so you can have a cluster-bomb effect, drowning Outposts in a chain reaction of chocolate showers.

For example, a Gargantuan Candy Bomb costs ten bucks, spawns 200 pieces of candy, and has a chance to contain a Huge Candy Bomb, a Large Candy Bomb, and a normal-sized Candy Bomb. A Huge Candy Bomb can contain a Large and a Normal, and a Large can contain a Normal, so a lucky Gargantuan can cause a chain reaction of up to a dozen extra separate explosions. That releases quite a lot of candy.

Have fun!

(PS: please note that if you buy ten bloody Gargantuan Candy Bombs and set them off all at once in the same place, the server will grind to a sodding halt under a wave of chocolate. I had to sort that out earlier today, and I'll admit that as server meltdowns go, it was one of the funniest)

Edit:
For fuck's sake, guys... :P
