Greetings,

Anyone ever had this problem before?

- Auction mission completed and got council reward
- Won a lot more than 10 random encounters in the zone

Random encounters never stops, as if the block could not be cleared at all.

Known bug?

Not a big deal but was curious about it.

Thanks!

I think this is a bug, as I recall having this problem in the past too. The problem seems to occur if Podol Plaza is cleared before or during the auction. If Podol Plaza is cleared after the auction, the area stays clear.
Also doesn't seem to count (for me) encounters I get that interrupt my rest as opposed to just walking around.
It is my understanding the only place to rest is at the bottom of the well.

I too, was getting discouraged about clearing Podol Plaza, but the lore is, that it is a central meeting place for monsters... I eventually cleared it, and it took a crazy amount of encounters... took to just walking around in a square around where the auction took place (in SEARCH mode) until finally... finally, the monsters stopped coming.

By then I was long past investing mental effort in the fights, and just was running on auto quick for everybody and going to the well to heal up when someone got low hps. Few times I misjudged, and had to reload a stale saved game... which really sucked.

Edit: Just relaunched Pool of Radiance, took the crew to Podol Plaza and rested in the middle for 2 days without an encounter.

@ceorem is 100% correct. I had many many encounters. I just marched up and down the map in SEARCH mode and fought on QUICK (ALT+Q). After many fights, they started fleeing before the battle until finally I cleared them out.

It is funny, I thought I would hold down the LOOK command instead of marching on SEARCH. But I tried that only after I had cleared it. I went to ENCAMP and REST and confirmed I cleared them out. I must have had over 20 battles with over 10 groups fleeing before battle towards the end of my marches.

I too was discouraged that I would have the hassle of combat each time I passed through the area. But now it is done.
I was just paying through PoR on 1.3 and was getting the same results...an endless stream of beasties in Podol Plaza after completing the auction quest and clearing the other set encounters. I took a break from sweeping Goblins and dragging around thousands of Silver Pieces and camped in a small 1 square room at 0,9 near the top middle of Podol Plaza. After memorizing more spells and resting without being interrupted, I marched back out into the Plaza and all the monsters were gone. I don't know if I just timed it right with the number of encounters (maybe 20), or hit some other metric, or if it was the little BnB I stayed at with the delicious Crumpets, but all the encounters finally ended for me...
