Who says ya can’t have holidays in a dead MMO? You can get your Halloween on in City of Heroes right now – or more specifically, in Paragon Chat.

As we’ve noted before, Paragon Chat is not intended as a full and complete emulator for the game; it does, however, allow players to log in, roll up characters, play with costumes, visit zones, use movement powers, build bases, and of course, chat. It’s even got some achievements. It just doesn’t have combat or mobs.

The in-game automatic portion of the event is live now, according to forumgoers; you’ll be trick-or-treating at various doors throughout the city, collecting salvage as you go, presumably for trade-ins later.

There’s also a community-planned Halloween event for Saturday, October 20th this year; expect a hide-and-seek minigame and costume races on the floating island in the sky!

Won’t be quite the same if you can’t go trick or treating from door to door.

Please re-read the part of this article that proclaims: “you’ll be trick-or-treating at various doors throughout the city, collecting salvage as you go.” And…Happy Halloween!

Please re-read that there is no combat and that was part of trick or treating in the past. i.e. Not the same to me. YMMV
Happy Halloween to you too! :)

Edit: forgot about the zombie invasion attacks. I miss those too. :(

While there is no combat, the trick or treating in Paragon Chat was surprisingly fun (at least for me). You get costume powers, flavor messages clicking on doors, ground effects that can hurt or kill you if you don’t move away, as well as the occasional hilarious lost zombie briefly appearing.
