<Character>: Ah, I love this time of year.
<Character>: The leaves are starting to change colors and thereís a little nip in the air.
<Character>: I should be getting a note from the Cauldron Sisters about Mogloween soon too.
*Ash walks up to you*
Ash: This note just showed up for you. I think itís from the Cauldron Sisters.
<Character>: Hah! Right on time. Thanks Ash.
Ash: No problem. If youíre heading over to Croft would you mind bringing back some candy for me?
Ash: I wanted to give Aria some.
<Character>: Sure. Iíll probably have to head over there now so Iíll see about getting you some.
*Ash walks away*
<Character>: Alright, letís see whatís going on this year.
*A note is displayed. It says, ďWe just wanted to let you know that this year there shouldnít be any issues! We hired Jack to defend us! Heís been doing an amazing job of keeping anything dangerous away from Croft so we can just focus on making candy. Weíd still like you to come by to visit though! It just wouldnít be the same if you werenít here. Hope to see you soon!
~Bubble, Bubble, Toil, and Trouble*
<Character>: There shouldnít be any issuesÖ
<Character>: Yeah, that never happens. Iím gonna head over now just to make sure.
Fight the monsters on your way to Croft.
*Croftís gate was zoomed out a little and then the screen cuts to the cinnamon tree where you arrive*
<Character>: I thought Jack was supposed to be keeping monsters away.
<Character>: There were still a lot on the path up here.
*At that moment, someone off-screen shrieks, HEEEEELLLLLPPPPP!*
<Character>: That figures. I knew there were going to be issues.
*You run off to the direction of the shrieks to find Jack Strife constantly knocking on the wooden door.*
Jack Strife: Let me in!
Jack Strife: I need to get in there and stop it!
Jack Strife: I have to stop it!
<Character>: What are you doing? Get away from that door!
Jack Strife: You donít understand, <Character>. I have to get in there!
Toil: <Character>, is that you?
Trouble: Help us! Heís gone crazy! He just started attacking the door!
Jack Strife: Iím trying to stop the...
<Character>: No, Iím going to make sure you donít hurt the sisters.
Fight Jack Strife with an option to heal or run away before battle. After you defeat Jack Strife:
*Jack Strife sits under a tree, defeated.*
<Character>: Now stay there for a minute.
<Character>: Toil, Trouble, are you okay?
Trouble: Yes, weíre fine now, <Character>.
Toil: Hold on, Iíll get the door open.
Jack Strife: No...
<Character>: Donít you try anything.
Jack Strife: You donít understand. I saw someone sneak into the room. I was trying to get in to stop whoever it was.
Jack Strife: Thereís been undead sneaking around earlier this week. I was afraid one had gotten inside.
<Character>: Why didnít you just say that in the first place instead of bashing the door?
Jack Strife: I didnít think about it.
Toil: There we go.
Toil: Jack, why didnít you just say so? We wouldíve let you in if we had known.
Jack Strife: Iím sorry. I just was so focused on trying to stop whatever it was.
Trouble: Well now that thatís cleared up...
*Myx is sleeping in the house. To his left, there is a figure hiding in the shadows. She proceeds to pour a potion in a purple bottle in him.*
Trouble: There shouldnít be any issues with this yearís candy now.
