    Well, I believe that I've found most if not all of what's out there. 
    If you find something that I don't have feel free to let me know.  
    You can contact me at samurai@motorcitysamurai.com
    
    Also, I created this FAQ to confirm all random encounters.  I will 
    not tell any of the funny things that happen.  Some of what happens 
    or what people say is very funny, so wander around looking for them 
    yourself.  There are some great items you can get or steal in these 
    encounters, but I am not listing them yet.  Play the game to see 
    this stuff.  I will list the encounter name as found on the map and 
    a description of what it is.  These are minor spoilers and you have 
    been warned.

    < FINDING RANDOM ENCOUNTERS >
     \-------------------------/
    
    I have found that these encounters don't seem to be quite random.  
    They do happen in different places, but the grid on the map that 
    they happen in seems to be pre-determined.  So the only way that 
    you will find these encounters is to explore.  Whenever you come 
    across a random encounter, try going through the same square again. 
    Almost every random encounter I had, I was able to get another in 
    the same square.  Also, some random encounters ( "Deathclaw 
    liberation", and "Pitch Black" come to mind ) are dangerous.  
    Others are one time only events.  If you watch it once you can't 
    see it again.  So I would recommend saving if possible before 
    exploring any encounter.

    These encounters seems to be the same as any other except they 
    always have someone that is willing to trade (for ring pulls) and 
    they have a larger circle on the map (unlike the gas station)

        This seems to be the last encounter.  I only got it after 
        getting all of the others.  I even got it about 5 times before 
        I quit looking for random encounters.  It's a dead man walking.
