From certain locations in Sryth, you can choose to Explore the Realms at random. This may result in random combat, a random encounter, or nothing at all. This was almost the first replayable content of the game, and the first that allowed grinding to be practical.

After an exploration, you can choose to continue exploring or go back to town. There is no limit to the amount of explorations you may make, but there are some anti-scripting measures in place that will reduce your probability of an encounter and increase the probability of a "non-encounter" message, to the point that after a while it's simply not practical to continue. Also, take care of saving your game from time to time.

Combat encounters, whether within a random hostile encounter or otherwise, can range from easy to extremely difficult, especially for starting adventurers. With as little as 49 MR, some combats are still 3+, while even with over 100 MR, some combats are still 18+ The infamous griffon, the hardest encounter to have, is still 9+ at MR 164

You can start exploring from these locations:

Temporarily available encounters

During the quest The Hunt for the Phantom Assassin you need to Explore the realms until you find "Something Quite Unexpected", which then adds a temporary special location you can return to advance the quest.

Historical note Edit

The option to "Explore the realms at random" was introduced in January 9, 2006. It was then greatly expanded on September 2006, with the addition of new enemies, Spider Caves, Shadow Paths, the Tears of Igranolt, and Ezerok. About this time, it was reported that Exploring the realms at random was only accessible to AG characters (At some point this limitation was removed. This was first reported on September 18, 2011)

No longer available
  • Ezerok. Disabled since November 2006
  • Milestone combat contest. Ended on January 2007
  • The Hunt of the Tears of Igranolt
    • This was a limited-time event, starting on September 2006. On September 5, 2006 the encounter of "A glowing red gem" (one of the Tears of Igranolt) was added, and the hunt for them was announced on Game Updates. It supposedly lasted just for a day, and when you found one, you also found a special, rare, and very powerful item. The list of items is the same you can find in A Haunting in Durnsig. If currently they're still powerful, back them almost all of them were the most powerful item on their category available in the game.
    • Then, when the original, limited-time The Hunt for the Phantom Assassin was released, the Tears of Igranolt were available again, and with them the special items. It is implied that this second time the list of items was expanded. There is no information about how long was this scenario available, but A Haunting in Durnsig was released on November 11, 2006 (allowing guaranteed access to 1 of the items), while the final form of the Hunt for the Phantom Assassin (permanent quest and without the special items) was released on February 2007.
    • Several players managed to get two, or even three of the items, besides the one they got from A Haunting in Durnsig, while this scenario was available.


Random TextsEdit

Nearly every encounter starts with a sentence that consists of three parts: time, place and location. For example: On a frosty autumn morning, in a forest glade west of the city of Charna

"On a frosty autumn morning" is the time, "in a forest glade" is the place, and "west of the city of Charna" is the location. There are a number of different texts for each part, and each part is randomly selected every time, allowing thousands of different combinations.

Some examples

And so on.

No Encounter MessageEdit

Your travels throughout the realms, while colourful, and at times arduous, ultimately prove uneventful. Despite the lack of adventure, after many long days your road-weary soul is eager to see in the inside of a tavern, and the bottom of an empty tankard...
...you are startled when you spot a lone figure standing a good distance off, intently watching your every move. A wide-brimmed leather hat adorns the head of the tall, lanky figure, and only moments after you first sighted him, he turns and quickly slips away. Puzzled by the strange encounter, you spend the next few minutes intently searching the area for any sign of the mysterious stranger. At last, without having found even a shred of evidence that he was ever there at all, you once again set off on your way.

Most of the enemies you will encounter are undead, but some are not. Also, most enemies are not much of a threat, but there are some exceptions. You can flee after the first round of combat.

There are several different boss enemies (shadow demons) that you may encounter: Soldier, Warrior, Destroyer, Commander, Lord and Prince, each can be a Lesser or Greater one. If I'm not mistaken the strongest one is Shadow Demon Prince (13+ to 14+ at MR 86, about 320SP).

After the entire group has been defeated you'll encounter one more Mountain Goblin that is stronger than the rest and will earn you more combat experience than the regular fights
