A number of the character-based plot cards (like Mr. Horace Eustace) say
If this card raises Dread, discard it.
What are we supposed to be doing with completed plot cards normally? Aren't they always discarded? We assumed they don't go to the Investigation deck because of the different card back.
Thank you for your question.
You are right, Plot cards are always discarded after they have been investigated.
But remember that if you FAIL to investigate a Plot card within its Time Segment (Morning, Day, or Night), the card raises Dread but stays on the board.
In the case of the Victims, however, if the cards raises Dread, it is discarded. This is a special rule pertaining to the victims. From a story point of view, it represents the victim being slain if you fail to warn them in time.
Hope this answers your question.
