Generic encounters

The following system is used to determine generic random encounters on the world map.

Table selection

Map overlaid with the names of the encounter tables used to determine random encounters

An alternate map, grouping identical cells together and which tables they reference.

First, the game identifies which tile or map cell the player is located in. The location determines:

  1. the terrain type and the script the game executes (RNDDESRT, RNDCITY, RNDMNTN, RNDCOAST),
  2. which table is used, according to g_var 65, using the following table; note that Coast and City terrain have only a single encounter table.

For reference, the letter and digit codes used to select encounter tables listed below have been included in the map to the right. A separate image, showing the specific cells affected as colored areas is included below.

Terrain Variable (g_var 65) Table
City Not applicable City table (CI)
Coast Not applicable Coast table (C)
Desert (D) 0 North_table
1 South_table
2-4 Randomly selected North_table or South_table
5 Shady_table
6 Raider_table
7 Junk_table
8 Hub_table
9 Necrop_table
10 Steel_table
11 Vats_table
12 Glow_table
13 Bone_table
14 Death_table
Mountain (M) 2 North_table
3 South_table
Any other number Vault_table

Encounter rolling

Next, the game calculates the actual encounter using the values from the lower table. These are percentile chances for an encounter of a given type.

Generally speaking, encounters with numbers closer to 1 are considered worse (may include difficult combat encounters or bad happenings, such as dehydration), while encounters with numbers closer to 6 are better (free items or special NPC encounters).

1-2 Luck
Normal Luck
3-7 Luck (3-6 for Desert tiles)
Good Luck
8 Luck (7-8 for Desert tiles)
Very Good Luck
9-10 Luck
Encounter1 2% 0.5% 0% 0%
Encounter2 7.5% 4% 2% 0.5%
Encounter3 28% 21.5% 14.5% 9%
Encounter4 46% 48% 46.5% 40.5%
Encounter5 14.5% 21.5% 28% 34%
Encounter6 2% 4.5% 9% 16%

Some perks may modify the odds, reducing the occurrence of bad encounters and increasing the incidence of good ones.

Encounter tables

All encounter tables are specified by scripts (see here for script dumps). Each script also includes two universal checks: Bounty hunters and the Mysterious Stranger. Note that all cap spawns are tripled with Fortune Finder and ammo is doubled with Scrounger.

  • Bounty hunters begin to spawn if the player character is a confirmed Childkiller (killed 2 or more children). Chris Avellone and his entourage will hunt the player character down to collect the 1500 cap bounty. He's armed with an assault rifle, spare 5mm AP ammo, wears combat armor, carries a super stimpak and 5-30 caps (tripled with Fortune Finder). He's accompanied by three henchmen wearing metal armor and equipped with:
    • a spear and with 5-30 caps
    • a sniper rifle, three packs of .223 ammo, two explosive rockets, and 5-40 caps
    • a Desert Eagle, 5-30 caps, and flamethrower fuel
  • Mysterious Stranger will spawn after the appropriate perk has been chosen, as long as he isn't killed in an encounter. The Stranger will carry various loadouts:
    • a ripper, two stimpaks, and 7-30 caps at the coast,
    • a brass knuckles, a frag grenade, a stimpak, and 7-30 caps in cities,
    • a spear, two stimpaks, and 7-30 caps in the desert,
    • a spear, two stimpaks, a set of Cathedral robes, and 7-30 caps in the mountains.

Random dehydration encounter. The game checks the player's inventory for a water flask. If they have one, the flask is removed.

If the player does not have a flask, the game instead rolls against Outdoorsman. If successful, it then rolls 1d6 for hours. A critical success means the search only takes one hour, a regular success will take (1-6+1) hours.

Failing the skill check will cause the game to roll for hit point damage and hours. This will deal 15-24 points of damage and advance the clock by 6–12 hours (the damage is applied to the critter directly and can be absorbed by any equipped armor). There's also a moderate dehydration variant: 4–8 hours, 6-12 damage

Vats6 Combat Ahead you can see junk strewn about the sands. An ambush, with a pre-placed bait. 2-3 mutants with miniguns.
Glow

Deserts to the east and south of the Glow.

If the player does not have a flask, the game instead rolls against Outdoorsman. If successful, it then rolls 1d6 for hours. A critical success means the search only takes one hour, a regular success will take (1-6+1) hours.

Mountain

Mountain, North

Encounter # Type Message Content
North1 Environmental You are traveling through sheer cliffs and rugged terrain. The game rolls a 1d100 against Outdoorsman (0 base modifier, +20% modifier per level of Survival).

Critical success: "You find a cave with a small spring and manage to get your first good night's sleep in a long time." (heal 1 to 3 hit points)

Success: "Fortunately, your climbing skills are up to the task." (no effect)

Fail: "You fall from a cliffside to the rocky ground below." (1d4 damage to player character, does not ignore armor)

Critical fail: "You fall from a ledge, landing on several sharp stones." (1d6+3 [4-10] damage to player character, does not ignore armor)


For both fail types, the game also runs the script function critter_injure(dude_obj, 2); in order to play the knocked down animation. However, this doesn't work in the game. The same function is called to tip brahmin, but that only takes place when the script forces them to play the animation frames. The function itself is broken.

North2 Combat Radscorpions! 2 to 3 Radscorpions. Placement is altered between 19:00 and 6:00.
North3 Non-player character You see a lone traveler in the distance.
Patrick the celt.png
Patrick the Celt. He can be asked to sing "Na Gheala Mbeadh" if a Speech check is passed. Listening to the song increases Charisma by one point. Patrick can be met again, but he will not sing the song anymore.
North4 Combat Success: A particularly sneaky radscorpion seems to be trying to ambush you.

Fail: Out of nowhere, a radscorpion suddenly strikes!

1 Radscorpion

The game tests Outdoorsman (0 base modifier, normal changes apply) in order to determine whether the Radscorpion ambushes the player and knocks them down. The function knock_down_player doesn't work, so this only affects the message displayed:

North5 Combat You have stumbled upon a family of Mole Rats. 1 to 2 Mole Rats (50% chance) or 2 to 4 Mole Rats (50% chance)

Independent check is ran for each mole rat: 20% chance it's Greater Mole Rat, otherwise Lesser Mole Rat.

2 to 4 fruits spawn on the ground.

North6 Environmental You are nearly crushed by a large boulder in an avalanche. The game makes a roll against Outdoorsman, but ignores the outcome (as the script was modified to only check if 1 still equals 1).

"You escape with no damage"

"The displaced rock brings with it the remains of a long-dead traveler."

The encounter also features a single dead traveler (using the ghoul sprite) that can carry:

10 to 60 bottle caps (double if have Fortune Finder)

25% chance to have 1 stimpak

25% chance to have 1 10mm pistol

25% chance to have 1 10mm JHP (2 if Scrounger)

25% chance to have 1 leather armor

25% chance to have 1 backpack

The script checks for each item individually, making it possible for all of these items to spawn.

If the Outdoorsman check was actually used, the game would react in the following ways:

Critical fail: "Your leg is critically damaged by falling rocks." (1d6+2 [3-8] damage to player character, doesn't ignore armor, cripple right leg, 50% chance to cripple the left leg)

Fail: "Some rock shards slice your face and hands, but you escape with minimal damage." (1d4 [1-4] damage to player character, doesn't ignore armor)

It's essentially the default mountain encounter map.

Fo1 Mountain Vault Encounters.png
Encounter # Type Message Content
Vault1 Combat You see a lone radscorpion, skittering about. 1 Radscorpion

This radscorpion uses a different script than all other random encounter radscorpions: It wanders around and doesn't immediately attack the player when the map loads, only when they see them.

The Mysterious Stranger will appear to lend a helpful hand against this vicious, deadly foe.

Vault2 Environmental You come across the bones of some long dead traveler. 1 dead traveler corpse (non-glowing ghoul appearance), death type: on back, no blood
  • 50% chance of spawning 24 10mm JHP on ground at same hex as corpse (Scrounger does not apply)
