We have Special encounter. We have Fallout 3 random encounters. Why is this page not a redirect? As far as I can tell, FO, FO2, FOT and FO:BOS all have special encounters, while FO3 has random encounters instead - different systems. One is not a subset of the other, as this article seems to imply.--Gothemasticator 07:13, January 25, 2010 (UTC)

Special encounters are a subset of random encounters, as in special random encounters. http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/fallout/images/thumb/4/4a/Naglowaa_se.gif/11px-Naglowaa_se.gif Tagaziel (call!) 08:45, January 25, 2010 (UTC)
It's simply that nobody has bothered to make articles for the FO1/FO2/FOT random encounters. I guess things like the "Enclave Patrol" in FO2 would count as "random" encounters. -- Porter21 (talk) 08:46, January 25, 2010 (UTC)
I might rectify that sometime in the future. http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/fallout/images/thumb/4/4a/Naglowaa_se.gif/11px-Naglowaa_se.gif Tagaziel (call!) 13:30, January 25, 2010 (UTC)
