Outpost of Adventure
Not all encounters along the road involve monsters or bandits. Once in a while, you cross paths with the outriders and patrols of civilization, keeping the countryside safe from those menaces (and possibly from delvers!). And then, rather than a dungeon or mysterious abandoned ruins, you come across the base of these stalwarts.
GURPS Dungeon Fantasy Encounters 4: Ring Fort offers a fortified town in the Viking mold. It describes the outpost itself (with the aid of a handsome map), as well as the troops, citizens, and style of life that bustle within. It's the perfect stopping place for adventurers with a little downtime between adventures!
Or, of course, for conquering heroes seeking a real challenge . . .
