Mystery Text

After an investigator resolves a Research Encounter, he may spend 1 Clue he gained from that encounter to place 1 Eldritch token on the nearest Wilderness space that does not contain an Eldritch token.

As an encounter, an investigator on a Wilderness space containing and Eldritch token may attempt to seal the cavern for good (Lore - 1 or Strength - 1). If he passes, place that Eldritch token on this card.

At the end of the Mythos Phase, if there are Eldritch tokens on this card equal to half NoInvestigators, solve this Mystery.
