You do realise (and I am sure you do) that an encounter is simply an event that stands out beyond normal day-to-day life experiences. You/your PCs make of it what you/they will.

Some examples: the sight of a beautiful song bird, singing to win a mate; goblin footprints crossing the path you are on; the sweet, refreshing scent of roses in a darkened and depressed length of the path; a dead animal with unfamiliar claw markings; the list goes ever on.

It is up to a GM to interpret whether an encounter is a creature looking for a fight.

If you want some peaceful journeying, ask your GM for something different.

Silver Crusade

Pretty sure Elfteiroh was making a joke.

Yeeeep. Was a joke. I'm the prime GM to expect "random encounters" to be possible friendlies if the player treats them well like they should. :P
The incongruity of the "WANTED" poster with an empty forest path was just too tempting. :P

(And yes, I'm usually the GM)

Yeah, the best way to have a little fun with player meta-gaming is to pull out a flip-mat and place the players' tokens on it, and then have a completely innocuous appearance by a hermit or farm cart show up :) (I've also seen groups completely under-estimate the danger of a situation just because there wasn't a flip-mat and tokens visible . . . yet!)
