I was just wondering if there were any Encounters (either OW or Arkham) that give you an Elder Sign directly. If so, what expansion & what card?

There are those who look at things the way they are and ask why . . . I dream of things that never were and ask why not

I've never seen one. Just on a random draw when gaining a Unique Item, as far as I know, and I've played quite a few games. That would be pretty powerful and would cause Camping-Out Syndrome.

You want examples of encounters that give you elder signs or encounters that seal gates? Those are two different questions.

I don't know if there's more than this one, but Kingsport adds an encounter at the curiosity shoppe that has a check to gain an elder sign.

Go here: http://www.arkhamhorrorwiki.com/Location

Click each Location link, which lists all the encounters available. Do a "find" (Ctrl + f) on the page for "elder sign" and see if there are any matches. Some may refer to sealing rather than the Unique Item.

Repeat for every other Location.

Right. There are so many encounters, who can even remember them all.

I don't recall an Elder-Sign awarding one, but there are many encounters that allow you to seal one gate. I also remember one expansion encounter in The Historical Society that lets you transfer an elder sign token from one previously sealed location to another.
