Getting Started

To get to Death's house, you will need to go to the black house portal located north-west of Port Sarim.

Map of the starting location

There you will find a dark, glowing portal.

The Portal

Once you have arrived, start by speaking with Pumpkin Pete, the portal owner. Follow the conversation until you successfully start the event.

Pumpkin Pete

Enter the portal, and you will find yourself in Death's house. As you can tell from the decor, the house is ready for a fantastic party!

A feast is prepared!

But let's not get ahead of ourselves...Talk with Pumpkin Pete and he will tell you to ask people around the house if they have any problems.

Pumpkin Pete: Marvellous. Wander around and talk to people, see where you can lend a hand.

The Problems

Minstrel Web

Head North of the dance floor to find Minstrel Web, the large spider in the bathtub. Ask Minstrel for help. She will tell you that there are eight spiders "hiding" somewhere. With all that great help, you obviously have no idea where you'll be going. Thankfully, you can find their locations below.

The location the spiders are located in is the number shown on the map. However, the specific colored spider's location changes depending on the person. The spiders do remain in the same places for all.

Spider locations

  1. Purple Spider - It can be found in one of the cabinets near Pumpkin Pete.
  2. Orange Spider - "Interact" with the spider and it will leave.
  3. Pink Spider - "Interact" with the spider and it will leave.
  4. Beige Spider - "Interact" with spider and it will leave.
  5. Turquoise Spider - "Talk" with the spider first. Then "Scare" the spider and it will cease to have a conversation with Edgar.
  6. Blue Spider - "Search" the four poster bed.
  7. Red Spider - "Search" the clock. (south of #6)
  8. Green Spider - "Search" the towels

Note: These spiders wander, so they could be in slightly different locations than the ones listed above.

Head back to Minstrel Web, who will give you instructions. You are going to need to move the colored spiders to the correctly colored floor tile.

<User Name>: Okay, I think that's all of them. Best head back to the dancefloor.

However, this is a puzzle and you need to move them in a specific order. If you make a mistake and need to reset the puzzle, talk to Allan (the Raven next to Minstrel Web) and he will reset them back to their original positions.

The puzzle

Move them in this order (Left Click to Move):

  • Turquoise
  • Green
  • Red
  • Purple
  • Orange

The spiders in their correct locations

Talk to Minstrel Web to make sure you've completed it correctly.

Werewolves

The werewolves can be found in the north-western corner of the house. (north of the dance floor and west of the stairs) In order for their voices to sound perfect, they each need to drink some Moonshine. They all don't know the entire recipe, but if you ask each of them you can piece the recipe together. First head over to the giant feast table and get all of the necessary supplies. ("Search" table) This is what you need to do:

  1. Use the Pile of Evil Leaves on the Empty Moonshine Vial.
  2. Use the Big Bottle of Blood on the Strained Moonshine Vial.
  3. Use the Big Bottle of Fear on the Unfinished Moonshine.
  4. Use the Pile of Ground Bones on the Unfinished Moonshine.

You sprinkle the bones on top of the mixture. It has an instant reaction and takes on a silvery sheen.

Talk to any one of the werewolves to give the Moonshine to them.

Grim Reaper

Head back upstairs, and go to the far east room. Grim is excited that his favorite musician, Zabeth Corvid, is going to be at the party and is very anxious about it. You will offer to get the one thing Grim is missing in his memorabilia, an autograph.

Grim Reaper: OH MY WORD I TOTALLY WOULD LOVE AN AUTOGRAPH!

Grim said that when Zabeth Corvid died, he was drunk. This made him wander into the future. This means that you will need to reply with the correct statements he would have replied to in the last part of the dialogue. You can find him in the same room as Muncher, in the south-east corner of the house.

Zabeth Corvid

Since the dialogue is so confusing, here are the options you need to pick (in order):

  • Hello, enjoying the party?
  • So, what do people call you?
  • Sheesh, you're an idiot.
  • Sorry, how about I make it up to you with another drink?
  • Exactly how drunk are you?
  • A vampire and a werewolf walk into a bar...
  • Do you know Grim?
  • Can I get an autograph for Grim?

You will successfully get an autograph. Return to Grim and give him the autograph. While he decides where to put it, head back downstairs and talk with Pumpkin Pete.

Grim Reaper: Oooh, it would look awesome on the wall.

Pumpkin Pete will tell you that everything is done and then you get to watch a cut-scene of the party.

Pumpkin Pete: You really must stay for the party, it's going to be AWESOME!

Once that's done, you have successfully completed the event. Congrats!

Conratulations! You have completed Partying is Such Sweet Sorrow.
