Random encounters are a feature of Age of Wushu, primarily targeted towards subscribers (VIPs), wherein a character with a glowing orange blob above their head will approach you.
Your system log will get the following message:
[system 00:00:00]:XXXXX XXXXX
quietly says: Come over here quick, i have something to tell you!
(Note: The NPC Will Leave after 5 Minutes.)

However, it often gives little hint as to what you will receive - and the effort often doesn't correspond to the reward.
Hence, here is a list of the names and what rewards they give. The "item rank" is a column for sorting purposes, making it easier to quickly check the best and worst items (and their characters).
