I have a character at the Lake Camp, and I am performing a Research Encounter. The resulting card requires a Lore test, which I pass. The card then says that I have found Professor Lake's notes, along with two ship tickets. If I had failed the test, it says to move the Clue to the Plateau of Leng.
BUT...the success result makes no mention of the Clue. Is this an oversight? Given the failure text ("...you have to look elsewhere..."), it implies that I have, in fact, found the Clue. But it doesn't actually tell me to gain it.
While this isn't common it's perfectly normal. Not all Research Encounters grant you a Clue.
While searching for the Clue you have found something, but not the Clue you were looking for (yet). You may have followed a wrong lead, or maybe the lead is good but it just requires some more research.
