I am confused about Tyrant Encounter prior to having enough Progress Points.
On Day 3, Patches was spotted (with a 1 roll) and it says to put the Tyrant Encounter on top. So I ran the Tyrant Encounter (Nom) on Day 4. I was obliterated in Round 2, so I failed the Encounter. The Tyrant Encounter card says to reshuffle back into Encounter Deck if you "back away slowly" (non-combat Option 2).
Since I was defeated, do I still reshuffle it back in, or do as the book says and discard it after it is over?
It seems to me that you would only reshuffle this encounter card back into the deck if you choose option 2. Otherwise, you should discard it.
Either way, you lose a day.
