Wow. Can you tell I am on medication right now? I just omit entire parts of my thoughts in the middle of them.
What I mean is: When I am playing for a long time, hopping locations back and forth, I will sometimes have something similar to what you're describing happen. But if I am on for <30 minutes I have never had such luck; so if you did that's awesome!

I can't remember how long I had been on for, but I don't think it was very long. I'm pretty sure it had been the first time I visited the river that day, or at least the first time during that particular play session.
Better a live coward than a dead hero.
