Yeah, I personally don't like random encounters. I prefer reasonable timed events. They make more sense and provide more in game dynamics and variety. Plus, as a DM, that's what you do. You urge players via story to do things.

But maybe a mix of story and prerequisite would be best because it doesn't really make sense to end day if you still have a lot of fight left in you. So maybe some prerequisites and also some timed events.
