Someone on RPG Codex asked this question:
I'm trying to play Pool of Radiance in FRUA, and it's been great so far, except one huge (imo) problem: The random encounters never seem to stop... I'm in the slums, and must have done about 50 of them, and it's really annoying seeing how i can't get anywhere easily since every other step is a random encounter. Does anyone know anything about this? I know that in the original PoR the random encounters in the Slums stopped after you beat 15 of them, and that was ok, because it allowed you to easily move between the town and the different areas.
So is this normal? do the random encounters ever stop in this remake? Is it by design, or is there a bug on my side that prevents that script from stoppin, or what?
