Lionguard (human): Did you know the gateway to the Mad Realm goes both ways? The Mad King can enter our realm, and we can enter his.
Lionguard (charr): Sounds like a great opportunity to refine my combat skills. That labyrinth seems pretty challenging.
Lionguard (human): Well, watch yourself. I wouldn't want to get stuck in there with the Mad King for an entire year!
Lionguard (charr): Whoa! You scared me! That's the most hideous Halloween mask I've ever seen!
Lionguard (human): What mask?
Priory Scholar (norn): Did you hear? The Mad King has challenged adventurers to a fight.
Priory Scholar (human): I've heard that all over town! I wonder if Tyria's best could take him in a fair fight.
Priory Scholar (norn): Now that's a battle I'd love to see! I wouldn't expect the Mad King to fight fair, though.
Priory Scholar (human): Magister Tassi's research wasn't a complete waste of time. This candy corn is really effective Bloody Prince repellent.
Priory Scholar (norn): I almost can't blame him–you can practically smell the candy corn in Hoelbrak! The Sea of Sorrows might turn to syrup!
Ghostie: Coo! No, quaggan means, "WoooOOOOooooh!"
Ghostie: Quaggan loves Halloween!
Grand Piazza
Villager: I can't believe you prefer Halloween over Wintersday.
Citizen: Wintersday is no fun.
Villager: You don't think getting gifts is fun?
Citizen: I don't think getting ugly sweaters is as much fun as beating you in a costume brawl!
Fort Marriner
Priory Explorer: Remember when the Mad King burst through the lion statue?
Priory Arcanist: I do. It seems every time he comes around, our lion statues are destroyed. Maybe he had a mean cat when he was a kid.
Priory Explorer: Do you think he'll try that again?
Priory Arcanist: I hope not. Evon Gnashblade's requested extra Lionguard support since the Mad King reappeared.
Priory Arcanist: See all the candy corn? It's not just decorative this year. Everyone's been talking about how it keeps the Bloody Prince away.
Lionguard: Good! I hope the Bloody Prince never returns. I sleep easier knowing he's locked in his box!
Priory Arcanist: What's with the Thorns and Halloween? They need therapy. (sigh)
Fort Marriner, Veteran Brigadier General Kernel giving orders to a squad of candy corn elementals
Veteran Brigadier General Kernel: Just like our training: you get in there, get the candy, and run like the Mad King himself is on your heels with a fork.
Veteran Brigadier General Kernel: Operation Candy Corn Tango is a go. I repeat, Candy Corn Tango is a go!
Deverol Gardens
Citizen: All of these trick-or-treating children are intriguing. Mischief and candy sure seem to entertain them!
Local: It's great, I love seeing these kids so happy. Do you have any fond memories of trick-or-treating?
Citizen: No, this is my first time coming to Lion's Arch for Halloween. It's all new to me!
Local: Ha! Maybe you should dress up and ask people for candy!
Citizen: With the Bloody Prince at bay because of this candy corn, we can all rest easier.
Lionguard: We're lucky he hates it so much. I don't think Lion's Arch wants to deal with any more blood and madness.
Citizen: Maybe by the time this ends, we'll all hate candy corn!
Lionguard: Whatever it takes to protect the city! I'll take misbehaving kids with rotten teeth over bloodthirsty spirits any day.
Citizen: (laughs) Right.
