Time for your daily encounter! Today the PCs have made port in Tinsaar, the former pirate city now under loose Amazon control. Who or what will they meet there?
Patrol of 17 light infantry mercenaries led by Renn (7th level fighter) Patrol of 17 light infantry mercenaries led by Sammpenna (10th level fighter!) – just a change of officers? Hermundr (7th level Chaotic Good barbarian) 21 domesticated reindeer Fever Indulbra (12th level Neutral magician!) accompanied by 6 5th level mercenary halberdiers and Ossargo (5th level apprentice magician) Sandstorm (desert only, so no encounter!) Snowstorm Patrol of 13 light infantry mercenaries led by Zennquann (12th level fighter!) 7 drunks Patrol of 14 light infantry mercenaries led by Qarrdunnia (3rd level fighter) 7 giant pink centipedes Zai (9th level Chaotic Evil fighter!) accompanied by 5 5th level heavy infantry henchmen
Plenty of high-level NPCs on Tinsaar! I wonder what’s going on there? Maybe a revolt against the Amazons is being plotted?

Daily encounter time! In this installment, your players are in a forested area along the Trog Inlet, which is dominated by the ape-men of Kor. What will they meet there?
3 ape-men 1 ape-man 6 rats Fog bank 2 giant toads 3 cave-men Patrol of 17 light infantry ape-men of Kor led by Mibdin-Zabra (3rd level ape-fighter) and accompanied by Sippy (9th level ape-magician!) 10 giant rats 4 cave-men 1 ape-man Insect swarm! 13 red deer 1 cave-man
"Ape-men and other unpleasant things" would seem to be the answer.

Time for your daily encounter! Today your players are clambering around on a glaciated volcano on Ullr's Island. Which part of that is not a bad idea?
90 giant bats! (luckily only at night, but this could be a random TPK) 1 giant weasel (night only) 3 mountain apes! Ash eruption! (could be another random TPK) Geyser! 1 giant weasel – but only at night 1 giant weasel (only at night) Fever (weasel fever, maybe?) 4 wolves 2 wolverines 5 mountain lions! Meteor shower! Poison gas! Luckily only “stinking cloud” strength.
Man, natural events on a volcano are a killer. And weirdly, no hunting parties on “Viking Hunting Island”. Maybe they knew about the impending eruption?

Welcome back to daily encounters! In this installment, your players have entered the creepy cult village of Wold Phellora. Hey, what's with the octopus statue?
13 stirges! 1 viper Patrol of 18 light infantry cultists led by Imbos (11th level fighter!) Heat wave! But only in a desert, so no encounter. 1 intelligent, evil giant weasel (only at night) Patrol of 19 light infantry cultists led by Sinuthaim (8th level fighter). Patrol of 9 light infantry cultists led by Ganos (6th level fighter) and accompanied by Thulornos (5th level magician). 1 domesticated woolly mammoth Sleet storm 1 riding horse 1 intelligent, evil giant weasel (only at night) Heat wave! But only in a desert, so no encounter. 7 bird-men
The cult village definitely had some cultists. What nefarious plot do you suppose they're brewing with the bird-men?

Time for your daily encounter! This time your players have made landfall on Xenadon, another island inhabited by a witch and her crazed servants - in this case renegade Amazons, although it seems they are (sadly) fully clothed. How many will your players meet?
1 black bear 21 aurochs 1 viper 11 giant ants! Patrol of 18 renegade Amazon medium infantry led by Alexandra (4th level fighter) and accompanied by Artemisia (10th level magician!) Violet lotus! 1 giant komodo dragon Hunting party of 13 renegade Amazon archers and 18 dogs led by Theodosia. They haven’t taken any game. Patrol of 18 renegade Amazon medium infantry led by Eudoxia (3rd level fighter). I guess the hunters tipped them off (if the PCs let any survive, that is). 11 giant frogs! Hunting party of 20 renegade Amazon archers and 7 dogs led by Black Artemisia. They haven’t taken any game either. Violet lotus! Insect swarm!
Nasty spot. Meanwhile, we're up to the letter X - getting very close to the end!

Daily encounter time! In this episode, your players have entered the city of Yithorium, home of the dreaded Witch Queen of Ditto. What will they meet there?
30 slaves being taken to the mines, escorted by 17 light infantry brutal mercenary thugs working for the Witch Queen led by Ilcemor (12th level fighter!) Can the PCs do anything to help (and will they even care)? 1 riding horse 1 ghul! (and Yithorium is actually located in a desert) Could be a random TPK… 1 small animal skeleton 1 domesticated woolly mammoth Patrol of 15 light infantry brutal mercenary thugs working for the Witch Queen led by Lustaivon (3rd level fighter). Probably looking for escaped slaves. 2 night-gaunts (man, Yithorium is a really fun city) Sleet storm – doesn’t apply in the desert 2 gargoyles Snowstorm – but not in a desert Simpralleor (2nd level Chaotic Good cleric) accompanied by 3 1st level assistants and 7 mercenary light infantry. Probably trying to save the souls of the Queen’s depraved subjects. Patrol of 17 medium infantry brutal mercenary thugs working for the Witch Queen led by Fulotha (2nd level fighter). 1 domesticated donkey
Ha ha I rolled a ghul! The Witch Queen sure knows how to put the F-U-N in "FUNgi from Yuggoth" (hey, you try making jokes about all of these).

Time for your daily encounter! Today your players are in the Zakath Desert, where no one mines rubies without the Witch Queen's permission (and lives). What will they meet there?

I told you the Witch Queen knows how to put the F-U-N in… never mind. One more to go!
