From the Pumpkin Town text:
Pumpkin Town is exactly six miles by six miles. Think of it as a cube.. there is a sizable underground portion of Pumpkin Town called the 'Creepy Catacombs' and the Sugar Mines are a sprawling network of tunnels and warrens. At the very bottom of Pumpkin Town is Pumpkin Town Hell- a place very much like a cartoony version of hell, full of sulphur pits, burning lava, miniature volcanoes.. crazy rock formations. Its too hot to live there for most residents. Characters that 'die' or are 'killed' in Pumpkin Town discorporate and reform here in Hell, and they must then make the arduous journey back up through the Creepy Catacombs to an area underneath the Graveyard. At that point the character must dig her way out of her own grave from below. There is no other way to get back into Pumpkin Town from Hell. Sometimes people get lost down there and just wander around for months. Nobody really likes to live there. Everyone pretty much lives in town.
Okay so we got that far. Pumpkin is small cube-shaped realm supported on the top of a very tall pole- Six by six by six. I am not so much describing locations here as I am explaining that the first thing you should know about Pumpkin Town is that its a fairly small place (the town itself only takes up a little over 1 mile square in the center of the map. Isolated. Like most small towns, everyone knows everyone else.. got it? Ok. Heres the other part about the cube aspects of Pumpkin Town: You can fall off.
For a lot of creatures this isnt an issue. Some can fly- Ghosts can simply drift back and forth. Some of Pumpkin Towns residents have access to other means of getting back on top.. the bad thing is: you just keep falling. Only on October 31st when the Bone Ladder appears can you make it to the bottom of the spindle and walk the earth.
