Hi everyone!

So what do you think about it? It's cool to have random battles in the world map? It hinders the exploring?

It's realistic, given the distances traveled. It would be odd not to encounter any monsters while traveling between towns and dungeons.

Depends. If you have a bunch of towns close together, then why are monsters still attacking? Why haven't the guards cleared them out? But if you are going a really long distance, then some battles are probably fine. Just don't go overboard or you will get your players wondering what the guards are really doing. After all, if you get attacked 5x by dragons in a short walk from town A to town B, then why do the guards even exist if they aren't doing their job (and for that matter, why is anyone still alive in the world if dragons attack that often and are that aggressive?)

Personally I've always liked random encounters.

When in game, it gives you since the world is more alive and it can be dangerous to walk from place to place.

in regrades to game play, it can provide a since of excitement, since of uncertainty.

They can also be used to prevent lower level characters from adventuring into zones with out actually making some sort of invisible wall or task to complete to get there. giving it a more open world feel but keeping the player on the right path through the game.
