With autumn and the Halloween holiday now upon us in the northern hemisphere, the time for our second annual Monster Hunt community event has arrived. Some of the vilest fiends to ever threaten the Algo Star System have invaded our fair site. Only you, the members of the Fringes community, can drive back these villains!

Thirty Halloween and Autumn themed icons featuring the villains of the classic Phantasy Star games have been hidden around the site. Locate these icons and click them to unlock a matching Achievement that will appear in your member profile. There is a separate Achievement for each icon. Icons you have claimed will also disappear from your view of the site.

Please do not share the locations of icons with others. Please allow everyone to fully enjoy the event by searching for the icons and earning the Achievements independently. If I have reason to suspect that someone has cheated their way into finding icons, they may be disqualified from this and future community events. You are welcome to boast when you find icons, of course. Just don't say where you found them. ;)

The Monster Hunt event began at 12 am Saturday, October 29th and will end at 12 am Friday, November 4th. These times are GMT. The hidden flags will appear only during this time window and only to logged in members.

Enjoy the hunt and have fun! :D

[EDIT]

The 2011 Monster Hunt has ended. Thanks to everyone who participated! I hope you enjoyed this event.

And sure enough, I have to work this Saturday.... We'll see how well I do this time.

EDIT: I guess 13 is a pretty respectable number.... How many are there, I wonder?

*scratches head* I think that means now's a good time for me to get some sleep before I continue hunting, then.

It has come to my attention that the Evildead, Grass Killer, Igglanova, Lassic, Skeleton, Werebat, and Zio #1 icons have not been appearing as they should. I apologize to everyone who thought they had those clues figured out. There were some technical issues that broke these icons. These issues are fixed and the icons are now appearing. Since half of the event period is over, I have added extra bonus clues for the affected icons that have already had clues revealed.
