So... I was about 250XP shy of Level 3 andI decided to go between the main town and the first encounter site (the fort). I come across a group of bandits going to the fort and I hit a group of bandits coming back to the town (same number of bandits, same location for the combat).
Well, I tend to use a standard operating procedure for my team and I did the encounter the same exact way. When I did the same actions, i had the same exact attack roles??? I know this sounds weird and maybe everything happened the exact same way... BUT, I did another lap (between the Fort and the Town) again and it went down the same way. To be clear, I did not save the game at all during any of the fights - not until I finally exited the game after playing for for about an hour.
I could be seeing things, but short of logging the encounters, I really think the random number generator is following an identical path, with identical actions, when you have identical encounters (e.g., 4 bandits and 1 Highwayman @Crossroads).
Anyway, I was wondering if anyone has seen the random encounters on the map yielding "odd" results.
