Perhaps some day when they flesh out the whole stealth idea, that mechanic will have some bits of code useable for conditioned tile loading.

That said, I guess i'm slipping towards the side of the less alarmist folks against my initial stance. It's no biggy, any impression of unfairness is probably just bias cause RNGesus is evil. As long as the events don't deplete within like, 4-5 days it should be fine right?

A fair guess. But the active session that triggered the tile to load is actually passed in. So it wouldn't be a stretch for me to dig into the skillsheet attached to the character attached to the session that prompted the load. I'm still not entirely sure that I want to make exploration events skill dependent. Seems like if I make it too high it eliminates noobs from participating in them and/or stumbling upon something nice. And if I make it too low then it could bog down the noobie experience where they get skills that seemingly do very little.

Please don't skill-gate it. The stuff from the events are nice things for newbies to run across to sell to vets.

Why don't add like "Forage" for events ?
What mean ?
Now, player walking in world and discovery event (it's X chance for this per tile map)
so noob and no noob can play and finded event

but with skill, you can add also like:
- add bonus (X*2) chance for discovery event ? - ofc. limit per season (max pool)
- chance (X/3) for discovery event, when max pool is full
??

i think, now amount event's small... 1.5 day and world don't have events :D
