Playing a game with girlfriend that never played these types of games before. Doing Azathoth as he most straightforward ancient one.

First mystery is voice of azathoth. You need to get an artifact. But how do you draw from the artifact deck? Only when an encounter tells you?

One of the most probable way is trying to do an expedition. The stats most tested in expeditions are observation and strength by the way.

Yes, you generally get artifacts when encounters tell you to. Expedition encounters are probably the most likely to reward you with artifacts.

You can go on Expedition Encounters - good chance of gaining Artifact and you can also go to Wilderness spaces if Expedition is far, quite a few of them give you Artifacts too.

I ran into that mystery on our first play too! It was our 3rd mystery and we didn't know about probabilities, so we just kept completing round after round in cities, fighting monsters and closing gates until an encounter in an opera house stated that we find the exact artefact that we needed for the mystery. It worked quite well in the "narrative" of that game.

A tough card for new players who don't know the deck statistics much. One thing I like about the expansions is they add a few more ways to get artifacts in the reserve. But in general yeah expeditions are what you wanna go for.
