This is a Town NPC. A House may be required in order for it to appear.
The Adventurer is a Town NPC that sells several unique items and also assigns quests to players. Quest objectives generally involve killing a certain amount of specific enemies or getting him a quest item from particular enemies or from crafting, for which he dispenses various rewards.
The Adventurer is first encountered as Frozen Adventurer laying down in a Snow Cozy House. He will move in when:
The player has interacted with him and unbound him.
There is a vacant house.
When threatened, he will cast a crystal above his head that shoots bolts at enemies.
The Adventurer gives out a quest each day, resetting at 4:30 a.m. every in-game day. Quests can be started by clicking on the "Quest" button, the Adventurer will tell the player to retrieve an item and give a tip on where to find the quest item.
After a quest has been completed, the Adventurer will reward the player with an Adventurer's Loot Box, and an extra item for some of the quests.
Below is a list of quests given by the Adventurer, as well as listed from the Quest Tracker while doing one quest at a time. Only one Adventurer Quest can be completed per Terraria day, after that you must wait until the next day.

'Lost in the Sea'
One day when our crew was crossing the sea, we got into a dreadful storm. We've lost a lot of people, our ship was damaged, but the most terrible loss was my compass. My favourite compass with which I had so many adventures now lies at the bottom of the ocean. Please, try fishing it out in the ocean, I really miss it!
My friend once told me about an interesting artifact. We were in Egypt when he told me about this artifact and it was very hot there. This artifact is a some kind of ice crystal that can cool things. I thought that it would be awesome if I could cool down by using it when it's too hot outside. I only know that different ice creatures contain this crystal inside of them. Can you please find it and bring it to me?
I've heard legends about creatures that were living in deserts. Unfortunately, all of them died during a massive cataclysm. Bones of those creatures are probably lost in the sands. I really want to know more about those creatures but the only way to do it is to find at least a little bone of them. Maybe you can dig in the sand and find any remains of those creatures?
I think I just had a brilliant idea... I'll need an apple that's covered in pure gold. But I can't just go and get that kind of thing in a shop! Can you help me out with this? Don't ask why I need the apple, you'll see later.
Do you know that skeletons from that dark dungeon can revive fallen allies? I really want to be able to revive dead creatures too! I've gathered some information and found out that they use Necronomicon to do this. Can you go to that spooky place and bring me that magical book?
I'm so tired of these slimes! Whenever I go outside, they immediately attack me! I really want to kill them all but I'm a bad warrior! Can you kill, let's say 25 slimes so I could go outside without any troubles?
When we once lost our way in caverns, one of our group members told me about a skeleton with a gold hat. We have met one and it captured our mapmaker! Soon we found him dead, I must take revenge on that skeleton! Can you kill it?
Yesterday I got to a sky island using magic. Everything was peaceful at the beginning but then I got attacked by giant birds! I fell off the island, luckily I haven't broken any bones. Can you kill these birds so I will not get attacked next time?
The idea of going fishing during night turned out to be bad! These disgusting zombies snatched fishing rod from my hands and broke it! How am I supposed to fish without fishing rod!? Can you please gather the pieces and repair it?
I just noticed that this gunslinger is selling something that looks like a blueprint of a weapon! Unfortunately, I don't have enough money to buy it and even if I had - I'm not that smart to understand all these schemes. Think you can buy that blueprint and craft the weapon for me?
Making wings is a really hard process! You need a strong material so the wings won't tear apart when you're flying. I think pieces of demon wings should be suitable. Please, bring me 12 pieces so I can make good wings!
Where's my chest!? Please, don't tell me that I've lost it... There were so many useful things in it! Wait a second... I didn't lose it! It was a shark who attacked my boat! Yeah, right, it ate my chest! Please, kill some sharks until you find the one who ate my chest and then bring the chest back to me!
I have tried different food during my life but I've never eaten a coconut! It may sound oddly but it's true. I know that there're some palms growing near the ocean and I've even seen coconuts on them! The problem is that I'm too short to get them. Please, bring me 16 coconuts and then I can find out if coconuts are that tasty as many people say!
I'm currently trying to make a potion that will allow one to climb on walls. A potion like this would be very useful for my adventures! The problem is that I need some spider samples to make it and I am... Afraid of spiders. Can you gather 12 spider masses for me? Just go to a spider nest, kill some baby creepers and then gather the mass.
I'm really-really upset right now! Wanna know what happened? I was making a presents for my friends. When I've made 20 of them, a monster whose name is Krampus came and stole the presents! I really don't want my friends to be left without presents from me this year! Please, find that monster and bring my presents back!
There're rumors about very strange slimes living deep in the caves. You probably wonder why strange, right? That's because those chunks of gel eat emeralds! That's why they're covered with emerald shards like with a shell. Bring me some of these shards and I'll create something. Now go!
Did you know that if you cut down burnt trees you will get charcoal? I bet you did not. Well, since now you have this information, can you please get me 25 charcoal? I really need it to make some torches!
"Somebody once told me that I will never become an great adventurer. And look at me - I've achieved a lot!"
"When you're going on an adventure, make sure to take some kind of knife with you to cut vines. One time I didn't take it and I had to tear vines with bare hands!"
"You know who am I? I am professor of archaeology, expert on the occult, and how does one say it? Obtainer of rare antiquities."
"I know that hornets can be pretty big but when I've entered the jungle and saw a hornet that was bigger then me... To put it mildly, I was shocked and never returned to the jungle again."
"I can travel anywhere without a map! I never get lost. Wanna know how I'm doing this? I... Don't know."
"During my adventures I often was close to death, but you know what do we say to death? Not today."
"Some people are afraid of night, since many monsters appear during it. These people say that night is dark and full of terrors. But I'm not afraid of it, I'm brave!"
"Do you help this kid, [Name of Angler], with his needs? You know, I need help more then him and I also provide pretty better rewards for you." (Only if Angler is present)
When without a home:
"Looks like this man was snowed in. He's unconscious but he can be helped by digging him out. A shovel I've seen near the door would be useful..." (While still frozen)
"Oh, thanks for saving me! That blizzard was so hard, so I decided to hide in this house. Unluckily, icicles have shattered the windows and... You've seen what happened. Couldn't get out without your help, thanks again!" (When without a home)
When a quest is completed:
"Thank you for your help! I really appreciate it!"
"You've managed to get them? Amazing! These shards look like they're alive, they're probably got affected by those slimes impact. If I'll try using a magic enchantment on them, you will get a new familiar... It worked! Take it, it will light up your way wherever you go!" (Emerald Shards)
"Yes! Yes! Finally! Behold my creation! This is a golden apple mask! A true masterpiece! Do you like it? Here you go, try it on. I poked holes in it so that you can eat and breathe. Oh, and one more thing: I melted the excess gold and turned it back into coins. But they are worthless compared to this wonderful mask." (Golden Apple)
"Ohh, would you look at this beauty! Glad you helped me out! ... Actually, I don't think I'll ever use this gun so guess you can take it as your reward." (Bonebardier)
"Oh, I can't find words to thank you! You really helped me out! Here, take this book from my chest. Somebody gave it to me long time ago and I don't think I'll use it." (Adventurer's Chest)
When trying to turn in the fishing rod after using it:
"Great! Thank your for your he-... Wait... What are these strange marks?.. Oh, now I get it. Did you really tried to fish with my rod and it broke again!? Did I allow you to use it? Go away, you will not get any rewards."
When you click the Quest button after the daily quest has been completed:
"Come back later if you wanna help me again!"
"Right now I don't have any quests for you, come back later!"
"I think I can give you another quest soon if you need it!"
