PostPosted: Wed Oct 31, '12, 2:30 am 
The time has come once again for our autumn celebration here at Fringes, Monster Hunt! For the third year in a row, some of the vilest fiends to ever threaten the Algo Star System have invaded and scattered around the site. It is up to you, the members of the Fringes community, to drive back these villains! All community members are invited to search for and capture the monsters during this event!

What is Monster Hunt?
The Monster Hunt works like this: a thirty icons of Phantasy Star villains, styled with an autumn and Halloween theme, have been scattered around the Fringes of Algo web site for members to find. You can see these icons only while logged in and during the duration of this event. If you should find an icon, you can click on it to claim it. When you claim an icon, you will unlock a matching Achievement that will appear in your member profile. There is a separate Achievement for each icon and each year of the event. Icons you have claimed will also disappear from your view of the site.

Rules of Monster Hunt
Please do not share the locations of icons with others. Every member is able to find and claim each icon. 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 an icon, of course. Just don't say where you found it.

Some of the icons will be easy to find, while others are well hidden and may be very difficult to locate. They could be anywhere, even in parts of the site you've never visited before now! Keep your eyes peeled!

This year's Monster Hunt will begin at 12 AM US Eastern Time on October 31, 2012 (two and a half hours after this post) and will continue until 12 AM Eastern Time on Wednesday, November 7th. The event will run for a full week, in light of the late announcement and inclement weather affecting some members. The icons will be visible on the site only during that time period and only to logged in members. Clues for the icon locations will be posted later in the week as the event progresses.

Happy hunting and have a Happy Halloween! :D

I'm trying a new strategy this year. I'm going to wait for the clues and find the eggs with the batch. Any ones I miss, I'll resort to my old tactics of visiting every page.

So far I'm only missing Profound Darkness, Dark Marauder, and Mother Brain from the first batch.

The third and final set of clues is now available in the first post of this thread. Only the Rappies icon has eluded everyone so far. I believe Wing Eye is currently in the lead for finding the most icons, having found 27 if my count is correct.
