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.

< RANDOM MERCHANTS >
 \----------------/

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)

1.  Hermit
2.  Trader
3.  Farmer
4.  Merchant

One Time only events (They don't revert to normal after the 
encounter) are denoted with a *

    he carries a BIG gun.

2.  B1000
    Part brahmin, part terminator.

3.  "" (The Eveready Bunny)
    This one is not labeled on the map.  It is full of invisible

4.  L33tists
    A clan of frag fanatics.

5.  Brahmin Poker

    Guarding our future against those pesky Canadians.

    See what happens when a post apocalyptic crocodile hunter 
    decides to molest a mutated komodo dragon.

    The four horseman of the post-apocalypse.

    The sketch he drew looked a bit different in the movie.

    Yup.  It's the space station all right.

22. Pitch Black
    It's dark and filled with danger.  Have fun.

23. Reaver Dance
    They don't get any more dead.

24. Gas Station
    How is she still alive after all of these years?  Hmmm...

25. Brahmin Armor
    I'll let you guess from the title.

25. Morte
    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.

Well, thanks about it.  Enjoy...
