If you use @Night tool, you can see all the Njerpez generated in your area. Just edit your stats and activate ninja mode, and you will see all creatures around you. As far as I noticed, their numbers grow if you linger more in an area, maybe I am wrong tho. Wouldn't be the first time  :-*

I said earlier that I'd only ever had one Njerp encounter at my homestead. Of the 4 characters that I've been running now for over a year(RT), the only one with such an encounter just had another recently. A Njerp came around who was tripping the traps next to my homestead (I'd read someone's account of Njerps doing that). Now, later, a band of foreign traders kept bumping into the surrounding fence at the same homestead for about 4 days. (pathing problems?)

So, in over 800 hours of play of 5 characters (4 still living), that's the totality of homestead encounters with humans, three, and all at the same homestead.

I guess my point is that IF there is some abnormality in Njerp frequency, I feel I would have seen it around the places I've settled, too. I'm leaning toward simple RNG, like the one character I run that has encountered wolves on so many occasions, out of proportion to any of my other characters.

I think the point is that the Njerpez are there, on the map. Now crossing their path is a RNG, because if there are X Njerpez on the map, you need to cross their paths. So even if we have the same numbers of Njerpez on the map, some of us can encounter none, while others may encounter plenty.

Bottom line, your actions and your chosen path IS the RNG, not the Njerpez.

Njerpez at your settlement isn’t super common, never has been. But in the surrounding 20 wilderness map tiles range, you can get a lot.
Sadly, I can’t use Night’s tool as it’s for Windows.

If Cheat Engine works for Mac or Linux, don't know what you use, I can send you a table with what you need, it should probably work. Let me know.

I think that an interesting thing will be that the random njerpez encounters were like robbers encounters. Numerous njerpez warriors instead of just one, that will be tough and will answer the question of 'why are njerpez here?' Well, it's a raiding party, an exploration party, robbers, etc.
