I'm playing through the first week of October right now and no matter how much I talk to the villagers, they haven't said anything about which masks they're afraid of. I thought they told you throughout the entire month. Anyone know?
According to the guide they tell you what they are afraid of ON Halloween when you give some of the ones wandering outside candy. No idea if that's correct though.
Huh. That doesn't make sense. It's the ones indoors who you scare. The ones outdoors masquerade as Jack.
Well, maybe they tell you about someone who is inside a house then?
EDIT: Well, here this is what the guide says word for word:
"During Halloween, your costumed neighbors approach when they see you, and demand "trick or treat!" If you have candy, give it to your neighbor, and they'll give you a hint about the type of costume that another neighbor is really afraid of."
