Can an event appear on a map NOT on day 1?[edit]

I am playing the second scenario of Rise of the Necromancer campaign (Master). At the end of week 1, I proceeded to the Marletto Tower not far from a Rampart on the very west of the map, passing an Ore Pit. When returning to Rampart already on week 2, near the Ore Pit I was attacked by Silver Pegasi (via an Event), however they did not assault me previously! Is there a hidden feature - events which cannot be activated before a particular day? I know there's something in campaigns which cannot be added via Map Editor (e.g. you will lose both on time AND if a hero is defeated - in a Map Editor you can add only one condition for losing).--Dread Knight (talk) 09:52, 8 March 2021 (UTC)

Most probably you did not pass that particular adventure map "square" section before.--FirePaladin2 (talk) 11:03, 8 March 2021 (UTC)
Possibly, but how I could? There can be no other way, as the path is very narrow.--Dread Knight (talk) 23:16, 8 March 2021 (UTC)
Very mundane answer - look at the screen here: Notice that the event is placed 1 square under the Ore Pit and the Ore Pit itself is visitable from both squares left & right to the event. So 1st time you likely skipped it by capturing the Ore Pit, but 2nd time you just moved straight thru the event and activated it. For the record, the "conditional" events have been brought to us in Heroes IV, map editor of H3 wasn't advanced enough yet. -Fafner (talk) 12:33, 10 March 2021 (UTC)
