The Scythes while dropped.

During the 2003 Hallowe'en event, untradeable scythes were dropped. Players could only pick up one scythe at a time. If they tried to pick up another one, a message said, "You already have a scythe you don't need another one". If dropped or lost, players can talk to Thessalia in the Thessalia's Fine Clothes shop in Varrock to get the scythes back.[1]

Jagex originally did not want to create a Hallowe'en event for 2003, because they feared it would delay the planned release date (1 December) of RuneScape 2. In one of their polls, they asked players if they would want a new Hallowe'en event but also delay the release of RuneScape 2, or keep it on schedule and have a "pancake day" in February instead. 78% of voters wanted a 2003 Hallowe'en event.[2] However, RuneScape 2 was still released on schedule, because the developers came in early and on weekends to do extra work.[3]
