"Generic" Locations

Notes: Generally speaking, random encounters occur when characters are off the established travel routes. There is (usually) a 5% chance per hour of travel for a random encounter or sighting to take place. An encounter listing in italics indicates that there are no creature statistics given for that encounter - either it is creature that poses absolutely no danger to the characters (a wild song bird) or is an NPC of some type for whom you should use the appropriate NPC stats. (I mean, really, you're going into the Marsh of Tun and you're not prepared for the Tun Bandits?)
