|Quest Page: Spoiler Warning.
This is a page describing a single quest in detail, and thus it may (and probably will) reveal plot or quest details. Spoilers will not be hidden from view. For a spoiler-free description of the quest (including difficulty and prerequisites), go here.
|Note: This is not an "Adventures for This Location" quest. When the prerequisites are met, it appears as a special location in Trithik.|
This event is available after you complete the The Secret of Stoneback Hill adventure.
You can catch the Phantom Assassin and each of his eight accomplices while you explore the realms at random (from any SAFE location) once you start the event in Trithik. You can choose to either kill them or subdue them, with only narrative differences.
When you find a person while exploring the realms, it will say "your travels are interrupted by something quite unexpected". It is best to stop exploring after this point and save because now, when you click "Explore the realms at random...", each of the hideouts you find will be listed for you to visit.
See below for a list of the enemies. The order you'll find them is random, except that the Phantom Assassin will always be the last enemy found. See Combat for more detail in interpreting the MRs listed in the table.

Historical Note Edit
When the adventure was first released (on October 29th 2006, as a limited-time event), there was the chance to find several excellent items. While these are no longer available from the Phantom Assassin, they are now available from A Haunting in Durnsig, though you can only acquire one item per character. You can see more at the Historical sections of Explore the realms at random and A Haunting in Durnsig.
The adventure was re-introduced, on its current form, in February 2007
