Just got Arkham Horror (and Dunwich Horror) a few weeks ago and have been playing through solo sessions to get familiar with the rules. This board has been beyond helpful for many of the tricky rules questions that have popped up...until now. Here's the situation:

Agnes Baker has an encounter in the Science Building during the Arkham Encounters phase which delays her. Then during the Mythos phase, the movement symbol on the card activates the Hunting Horror who makes a beeline for Agnes in the Science Building location because she is in an unstable location, is the closest, has the lowest Sneak rating, what have you. During next turn's Movement phase, Agnes makes her Evade check to avoid having to fight the Hunting Horror, but since all she can do is stand up due to being delayed last turn, she must stay in the Science Building location with the Hunting Horror. Question: does Agnes subsequently have an Arkham Encounter later this turn? Or does the presence of the Hunting Horror prevent her from drawing an encounter card?

Thanks in advance!

She has an encounter. Monsters do not effect this in any way as they are dealt with in the movement phase.

Agree. Agnes sneaks around within the Science Building to avoid the monster but then runs into something new.

Quite... this is exactly how it's supposed to work. The locations are large, of course, so many things can happen at each one.
