Fixed Encounter or Event Encounter - An encounter which occurs at a specific tile/location or by interacting with an entity and cannot be avoided by wearing Moogle Charms. Some examples include: Opera House Rats, Burning House flames, Imperial Camp soldiers, Lete River and Serpent Trench encounters, IAF battles, and during the Floating Continent escape and Magitek Facility Mine Cart Ride.
