Adventurer Appreciation Month is a limited-time event for Adventurers Guild members which occurs annually in September.

The 2009 installment spanned September 2009 to the first days of October 2009. The 2010 installment began the second weekend in September 2010.

The 2011 installment was officially announced on August 30, 2011 but was available from a few days before.

The third Contest of Bows ran concurrently with the 2012 installment.

2009 Event Edit

September 2009 was decreed by the GM to be the first "Adventurer Appreciation Month". A stranger with a red and white painted wooden mask appeared at several locations throughout Tysa, giving adventurers who found him several tokens of gratitude.

Originally, the stranger was scheduled to appear only for a limited time at each location (until Friday 11th he was to be at the first location, from Saturday 12th to Thursday 17th at the second location, and so on), but the event was later extended until Sunday the 5th of October, allowing for adventurers to find him at the three locations successively.

The stranger was not a permanent fixture, so he appeared and disappeared at will. The Adventure Finder signaled when the encounter was available.

2010 Event Edit

The second annual Adventurer Appreciation Month occurred during September 2010. Initially, the Adventure Finder indicated a random location in Tysa where a green-masked stranger could be found. The masked stranger began by giving adventurers a different token of appreciation each time they encountered him. He could be found once each server day, akin to CHR, starting 12 September 2010. The initial meetings then progressed to a short quest, followed by daily meetings with a different stranger—a dark-haired woman.

According to a Sryth {{ #NewWindowLink: | Facebook update }}, Adventurers have through Monday, September 27 to begin the special Adventurer Appreciation Month encounters. Characters that have started the encounters by the 27th will be able to complete the entire series. According to past experience, once you get "locked in" in the event, you can complete it later whenever you want.

The culmination of the event is still to be determined.

2011 Event Edit

There is an {{ #NewWindowLink: | associated forum thread }} for this topic.

  • The main AAM event is a saga of several separate events/quests. Each of the encounters was released at a separate date, but if you arrive later you can do them immediately one after another. Their availability is signaled in your Adventure Finder.
  • As part of the AAM, all Adventurer Tokens rewards for donations made from August 25 to September 30 (including renewal donations) were doubled.
  • Also during this month there was a new installment (the third) of The Stone Hurl Challenge

Staggering Man Edit

Your adventure starts with a seemingly random encounter with a staggering man in Blade Square in Trithik. The man would give you a

 Item 12109: Ravenbone Disc Piece Misc 

Encumbrance: 0
This thin piece of ravenbone is approximately one third of an entire disc. The nameless man who gave you this curious shard told you that it would be of use to someone not afraid of a little 'adventure'.

and signal you to meet him in Talinus. This encounter was available a few days before the official start of the event, and apparently has some random element on it, so you can go there and not meet the man, only to find him if you return later.

A few days later, the next encounter appeared on Thofyra's Training Yard in Talinus (although you don't need to wait if you start later, you can have the encounters just one after another). The man gives you another, identical Ravenbone Disc Piece and asks to meet again in either Graldok or Tryndmoor

The next encounter is on the Loch Leap Alehouse on Tryndmoor's harbour. The man gives you the third part of the disc.

Greebren Edit

Your next encounter can be slightly tricky to trigger. You will find him in the Loch Leap Alehouse in Tryndmoor, but you might have to enter and exit a few times. Sometimes it won't trigger if you sit down, only if you enter and attempt to exit immediately, at which point a new page should load displaying a single (and familiar) word: "Suddenly..."

Greebren is a a young man whose head is covered with a tangled mop of golden hair. He tells you the story of the disc, and that you need a special magic scroll to join it. Once joined, the disc will open one of the three Gripmaul's shrines. The magic scroll is, supposedly, with the body of the former owner, an adventurer named Yuridur, who was last saw heading for a remote cave in Tryndmoor. Greeben gives you

 Item 12140: Greebren's Silver Key Misc 

Encumbrance: 0
This thin silver key was given to you by Greebren in Tryndmoor.

which will supposedly unlock a coffer containing your reward for this quest. After this, you suddenly realize you're being watched by three men. Greebren flees after requesting you meet him next in Westmere.

You get 128 General XP for this encounter

Westmere Edit

Before you're able to enter the Misty Loch, you're surprised by two thugs who block your way. Then you're zapped from behind, draining you of a substantial amount of your SP:

  • The blow won't be fatal, but can be crippling at low SP, such as 40 SP taken out of 43, or 83 out of 86
  • Based on reports in the forum the (known) range is between 48 and 93 (possibly between 48 and 100)
  • You'll have the chance to use Restoration after that and before the next fight

Afterwards, you're dragged into an alley. Your assailants want the disc fragments, but they think Greebren has them. Taking advantage of a moment when their attention is unexpectedly distracted, you attack them: 2 Sword-Wielding Men (Subduing fight, 9+ at MR 50-51 Approx, 45 SP), very rare ~12 SP brutal stroke special, can't FLEE

After you've beat them, you will face the sickly-looking man with the lightning-charged leather glove who drained you of all that stamina during the preceding ambush: Unarmed Assailant (Subduing fight, 9+ at MR 55-56 Approx, 60 SP), very rare ~10 SP special energy attack, can't FLEE

Once you've finished with them and they flee, Greebren appears. He then instructs you to meet up with a pathfinder by the name of Irisyl at the Loch Leap Alehouse in Tryndmoor.

You get 128 General XP for this encounter.
