Region G: South Coastal Encounters

Location Discovery[edit | edit source]


Encounter Text Location Unlocked
You spot a distinct lack of mining activity in the distance, and ride closer to it to investigate. Yep. Sure enough, nobody's mining over here. Abandoned Mine
You see familiar outline of an army fort, and zag <horsename> toward it to investigate. The sign says "FORT UNNECESSARY." Fort Unnecessary
A big billboard off the side of the trail boldly proclaims that a nearby stand is your very last chance to get custard, because there is no custard available in the ocean. Last Custard Stand
You see a plume of smoke rising over the trees to the north of you. You nudge @horsename@ in that direction and find a cozy-looking cabin nestled in a copse of pines. The ground outside is sparkly and rainbow-tinted -- a telltale side-effect of the practice of the jeweler's trade! Jeweler's Cabin

Tiny forage.png
<horsename> gets a little skittish, and a few moments later you understand why -- a low, Nordic drone signals the existence of a nearby hive of Viking bees.

You hop down and follow your ears to the source.

Repeatable
Tiny forage.png
You slam on <horsename>'s brakes because you're pretty sure you just saw a floating banana.

When you hop down to investigate, it turns out it's not floating, but perched precariously atop a thin stalk.

Picking it could be risky.

Repeatable

A flash of brilliant orange next to the trail catches your attention. You park <horsename> next to a rock and hop down to investigate.

It's a Frisco poppy! They used to grow everywhere around here, but they're pretty rare since The Cows Came Home. The cause and effect there is still kind of murky.

Repeatable
Tiny nc.png
Looks like you've found an abandoned crate of military supplies. Since it's addressed to Fort Unnecessary, perhaps the shippers took that to heart. Repeatable
Tiny nc.png
You find an abandoned crate full of mining supplies. You can tell it's full of mining supplies because it has "THIS CRATE IS FULL OF MINING SUPPLIES" stenciled on the side of it. Repeatable
Tiny nc.png
You find a rough wooden cross stuck in the ground, with the words "SOME JERK" carved in them. I guess it's a grave? Repeatable
Tiny elv.png
Your El Vibrato transponder leads you toward a small cave. You park <horsename> outside and step in to investigate.

In the back of the cave, there's one of those big monoliths. It's dark. Inactive. Not turned on.

Repeatable [El Vibrato transponder]
Tiny nc.png
You come upon a covered wagon belonging to a newlywed couple heading west. It looks like one of their wagon wheels has broken, and though they have a spare, it was the heavy corner of the wagon and they don't have any way to lever it up to get the replacement on. Repeatable

Tiny nc.png
You come to a fork in the road. A pair of twins are standing near a sign that says "WARNING: VICIOUS BEARS". You ask the guys which path is safe, and they say they'd be glad to tell you, but one of them always lies, and the other always tells the truth. Repeatable

Tiny bandit.png
You ride past a woman who is running along the desert trail on foot... and although I say 'running', it's a slow run, with an odd loping gait. She's dressed oddly too -- no hat, just a thin strip of fabric tied across her forehead, light clothing, and strange soft-looking boots that barely even come up to her ankles. One-time

Tiny cow.png
The hair on the back of your neck stands up as you realize you've ridden into the midst of a herd of ghostly floating cow heads.

You've heard that some ranchers, in a desperate effort to avoid the Homecoming, deliberately drove their entire herds into the ocean. If that's what happened here, it didn't work, and these cows are very angry about it.

Tiny skeleton.png
With a spooky combination of hissing, chattering, and clanking, an ancient skeleton rises out of the sand in front of you. He's wearing dented and rusted antique armor and a long handlebar mustache -- must be an ancient explorer or would-be conqueror. Hopefully the former, because he doesn't seem to have been much good at the latter. One-time

Tiny skeleton.png
A gurgling hiss draws you attention to a nearby skeleton. Honestly just the fact that there was a skeleton here should've been enough to draw your attention, but I guess you're getting used to them. This one is wearing rusted antique conquistador armor, caked with mud and rotting seaweed, and waving a waterlogged old blunderbuss at you. One-time

<horsename> wanders into a darker arroyo than you'd normally go to, and before long you find yourself lost.

From behind you, you hear an ominous tink tink tink ooooooooh, tink tink tink ooooooh.

You turn around to see the ghost of a miner, apparently frustrated that his ghostly pick can no longer find purchase and eager to take it out on you.

Repeatable [Pale Horse]

Tiny snake.png
You catch a glimpse of something colorful out of the corner of your eye and hop down to investigate it.

Before you know it, you're mesmerized by a scintillating rainbow of shiny, multicolored scales. A moment later, you realize you've fallen for the oldest trick in the book. Specifically, the book about how Frisco vipers trap their prey. Because you're surrounded by Frisco vipers.
