One of the random encounters calls for the PCs to spot some grubby little gnomes escaping from a potato cart. In later hexes these little buggers will make an occasional appearance as they seek to liberate travelers from their possessions.
Gobbos are always a good, low-level threat and Hex 003 features a small group that are squatting in some abandoned caves near a village.
An earth spirit lives in the hex. It is revered by the locals, who call him/it "The Stone Man." The PCs may find themselves in the middle of a battle between it and a dwarven prospector.
There's several more illustrations, but I thought I'd keep it short, but sweet.
Have a great night!
