    Yeah, all alcohol has yeast in it. It's what turns the sugar into... alcohol. Nigel says, taking another drink. Still drinkable. He concedes. So what do you do for work? He asks, changing the topic.

    "Oh." That makes sense, then.

    In response to the question, Holly says, "I'm a Private Eye." At least, that's one of the things she's doing. "Most recently, I've been working on cases involving the skinwalkers, the rat invasion, and a few other similar things that have been going on." She was told about most of the things she works on after walking into a tavern.

    Feeling a little left out, Holly decides to pour herself a drink, looking for a nonalcoholic one. "So you said you used to work with Magtok, right? But what do you do now?" she asks.

    The vampire goes up and knocks on the first door on their left.
    The mummy follows, and then, realizing she's being left behind, so does the porcupine.
    When the door opens, they'll all manage to say "Trick or Treat!" in unison.

    And that may be quite fun. Cheasadh's going to follow, up to the floor with the children's party. Should be fun, there.
    As the enter the children's area, someone bumps into their long costume from behind.
    Namely, one small shiny crocodile with a set of golden bracelets and necklaces, and carrying a staff.
    "Oh, I'm sorry Miss Dragon. I didn't mean to bump into your tail." it says in a somewhat squeaky but boyish voice.

    Oh god, those shapeshifting things. Nigel says. One of them attacked my house! Don't tell the insurance guys, I had to burn the whole place down to fight it off. Nigel takes a long drink from his wine. Sorry, bit heavy for a party. I'm a doctor now, I work at a hospital in riverside. It's good work. Not as, y'know, intellectual as my previous stuff but it's challenging enough to keep me occupied. And it's... satisfying, y'know? Making people better. He explains.

    Holly agrees, they are pretty scary and fire seems to be the only thing to work on them so far.

    Meanwhile, she's found an adequately nonalcoholic beverage that probably tastes like fruit punch or something.

    "'Shapeshifter infestation' is probably covered under some insurance policies," she notes. Probably under whatever policy also covers mimics. "Anyway, doctor. Sounds exciting. You're probably pretty busy considering how many plagues and stuff have hit Riverside recently."

    Once she's caught up to Nadas, Sekhmet will follow him down the left passage. "But how do you know? We could be trapped down here forever." She's not even sure if she can die of hunger or thirst anymore, or even if she'll age.

    "Oh, no worries. Brinika, we're stood in the doorway. Can we move? Somebody's just bumped into me." Cheasadh's usually at trip-height, particularly for adults. Cheasadh's voice is high and light, and she'll start shuffling to one side. She'll also push the flaps next to her open so she can look at the person who bumped in. "Oh! You're adorable. Like Pookie, almost." Not that Nak knows who that is.

    "Oh, sure! Let's just..." The front of the pink fox-dragon starts moving, so that if the rear moves as well, they'll get out of people's way. Once that's done, a pair of bright orange eyes will peek out to look at the crocodile. "It's okay. This costume needs a bit more time to move around in. We ought to be careful."

    God, those and the demon invasion. He says, setting down his now empty glass. We all had to evac for like a week while repairs were underway, then we worked out of these crappy tent set-ups... anyway it was a mess. Now all these rats are getting into everything and that carries disease so you gotta be doubly careful about every environment you thought was sealed. Nigel scoops up another drink from the table. Yeah, a mess. Sums it up.

    The crocodile tilts his head. He notably, keeps the staff in contact with the costume.
    "Costume? So...you were two girls in a big fake dragon? Why?" he asks, visibly confused despite his reptilian features. He is clearly not wearing much of a costume himself. Or much of anything, really.

    Cheasadh follows Brinika when they move, so the dragon moves relatively smoothly. "Because we have to dress up as something, and this is cool!" Cheasadh nods vigorously as she speaks, smiling at the little crocodile. "Your costume is awfully shiny." But not very large, though that might be an issue with finding a tailor.

    The totodile looks down at himself.
    "But...this is just what I wear normally. Was I...supposed to get something else? I just heard someone say that there would be candy so I ditched High Priest Krokorok." he says, clearly worried. Decorum is very important! He can't go about breaking sacred traditions!

    "I guess it's OK. Most people dress up for Spooktober parties, but... I don't think it's a rule that you have to." Cheasadh's trying to reassure the adorable little reptile, but she's looking around and can't see anyone who is not obviously dressed for the event in some way.

    "Yeah, there's lots of rats in my neighborhood," Holly says. She lives in one of the poorer neighborhoods of Eastside. "The demons were pretty bad. My house survived but now I've got a family of four rooming with me thanks to their place being destroyed."

    Sharing a house with a family of four strangers is pretty strange. "I keep on hoping they'll move out, but...they just can't afford to rebuild their house. I'm out most nights, so it's not that big of a deal but I never expected to wake up to crying toddlers again."

    "We've not had any candy yet, why don't we all go get some together? Oh! I'm Cheasadh, that's my sister. What's your name?" Cheasadh leaves Brinika to introduce herself, but the two girls don't look very related. Particularly since one is a gnome and the other a goblin.

    The rebuilding hasn't got out that far yet huh? Nigel asks. I heard there was a whole bunch of different groups sorting it out. Like some dwarves and goblins were working together on it I think. Nigel is starting to get used to the idea that dwarves and goblins aren't just something from like... lord of the rings.

    "Yeah," the half-human says, "but, like, some people get priority. Other people don't." It'll get rebuilt eventually.

    Rath tried the juice and quickly found some spiders to bully into bringing her alcohol. Juice! They got halfway through brewing it then got bored. Ridiculous.

    Sasha nods too. She is evidently easy to sway with even the mildest of peer pressure. Though she hadn't the foggiest idea on how to trick a vampire. Or... anyone really. Especially a Spooktober trick. Do you just sneak up on them? She would be good at that.

    Rath's figured out one at least. She gets her alcohol.

    Meanwhile, just nearby, a few other kids knock on the skeleton's door. The candy skeleton, throws up his hands in surprise at the trick or treaters, rattling his bones. "And who do we have here? What are you?" It asks, as it distributes a share of candy to each of them.

    [Fifth Floor]

    As Sekhmet and Nadas continue along, they'll find it particularly easy to get lost. Though theoretically they shouldn't have a problem with the hand along the wall method. As they travel, whispers travel through the fog that start nearly inaudible and definitely incomprehensible and grow in volume and coherency.

    "We're foreclosing on your mortgage. We regret to inform you there's been an accident. The boss would like to have a word with you. My mother will be coming to dinner tonight. Honey, we need to talk."

    It's like someone looked up the spookiest phrases on the Internet and repeated them without understanding why they were spooky. Well, maybe it's distracting enough that Nadas doesn't notice the strands of webbing on the wall until his hand gets sticky.

    Felandria might find herself approached by a drowess dressed in a black catsuit of familiar style. Her usually white hair has been dyed red for the season. "Hello fellow Avenger." Says Erelae Xar'Cha, who is dressed as Black Widow.

    At her side is a diminutive Spiderman. The Miles Morales version, in the black spray paint stained suit. This is seven year old Landon. Half Drow, daywalker vampire, and werewolf. But right now none of that is noticeable through the costume. He's armed with a plastic pumpkin only lightly laden with candy.

    God, I mean... you hate to think someone might be... abducting people. Nigel says. Some people though, they just take advantage of a tragedy like that. You get a lot more people helping though. Gotta keep that in mind. He adds, gesturing with his wine glass. He takes a drink before adding: Still, hopefully they'll fix your stuff up soon.

    Spooky Children

    Vampires hate uh... doing math. And being a book keeper. And getting locked into places. Olon says confidently. Hey cat kids! We need your help! She calls over to the vampire, porcupine, and mummy. After they get their candy from the skeleton of course, she isn't a monster. That's Sasha.

    The vampire has the ultimate candy bar. Endok explains. There's time for introductions later this is time sensitive. We need to trick him.

    Magic_Hat spots Felandria. In truth he's impressed with her costume. However he likes intentionally misidentifying others costumes. It's a running gag from Homestar Runner after all.

    "We're foreclosing on your mortgage. We regret to inform you there's been an accident. The boss would like to have a word with you. My mother will be coming to dinner tonight. Honey, we need to talk."

    It's like someone looked up the spookiest phrases on the Internet and repeated them without understanding why they were spooky. Well, maybe it's distracting enough that Nadas doesn't notice the strands of webbing on the wall until his hand gets sticky.
    "Because that's how haunted houses work. Besides, no one would have a whole floor of their house with no way out." Right? That would be crazy. And Ilpholin *is* crazy. Maybe it only opens every Spooktober, to claim another set of victims.
    Nadas doesn't say any of that, because he's getting distracted by vaguely unsettling whispers.
    "Do you hear that? Not quite proper Spooktober content, is it?" He manages to chuckle at the silly lines, until something touches his hand! No, wait, it's just that he's touched something. Spiderwebs... Augh, his glove is going to be stuck there, isn't it?

    "I'm a vampire!" says the vampire cat kid, baring his fake fangs.
    "I'm the Margrave of Thorns! He's half human and half ghost and half angel and half demon, and even the devils are scared of him, so you know he's super-scary." explains the porcupine, whiskers twitching.
    "..." The mummy stares down at the candy in their bucket, then up at the candy skeleton. "I'm disguised as a mummy. It's spooky because dead people aren't supposed to walk around."

    Rath's figured out one at least. She gets her alcohol.

    The vampire has the ultimate candy bar. Endok explains. There's time for introductions later this is time sensitive. We need to trick him.
    Oh! They've been called on to join a candy quest.
    The cat kids hurry over.

    "What if we make him think we don't even like candy? Then he won't mind us having it." suggests the porcupine.

    Sekhmet has to laugh a little too. Those aren't scary (except the part about the boss, which is terrifying). Then she sees the webs. "Are those... cobwebs?" She's worried again. Giant spiderwebs mean giant spiders, and she doesn't want to meet one of those.
