Hi, all!

While playing today with all of the added cards from the Forsaken Lore and Strange Remnants expansions, as well as the adventures and Mystic Ruins decks in action, I encountered a puzzling question:

I decided to have a Mystic Ruins encounter. One of my personal items -- the Conspiracy Theorist ally from the FL expansion -- gives me +2 observation during "research encounters."

Would that card give me the +2 bonus for a mystic ruins encounter? They seem like similar beasts, so I wasn't sure.

Thanks!!!

No, research encounters are cards which you draw because you are on a space with a clue on it.

Nope! Mystic Ruins encounters are not research encounters, similar to how Expedition encounters are also not research encounters.

Incidentally, even though they are similar Mystic Ruins encounters are not Expedition encounters.

Only research encounters are research encounters.

Some cards specify things like, "+1 Observation when resolving tests on Expedition and Mystic Ruins encounters."
