The Scythes while dropped.

During the 2003 Hallowe'en event, untradeable scythes were dropped. The drop happened on two days; on 31 October and 2 November 2003. Players could only own 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 scythe back.

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.[1] However, RuneScape 2 was still released on schedule,[2] because the developers came in early and on weekends to do extra work.[3]

Due to a server error at the time of the original drops, Jagex organised a second drop day where every hour for four hours the scythes were randomly dropped. [4]
