First off, thanks for all the help with my previous post!
If an investigator enters a location that has a gate and a monster (or monsters) does he/she have to evade or fight them before going through the gate? I was playing that they were immediately pulled through gate, is that wrong?
I am playing a game now where the first two gates open on the same spot, causing a monster surge and there are now four monsters (one in the sky) on that location.
You do not get pulled through the gate until the Arkham Encounters phase. Monster fights happen during Movement phase. If you move into a space containing a monster and a gate, then during movement you have to deal with the monster so that you can still be around for the encounter phase to get pulled through.
