I believe Ithaqua47 was referring to the fact that nothing seems to instruct you if you banish the bane encountered from an Hourglass, or you just discard it in the hourglass (assuming the scenario only instructs you to encounter them, and not to summon and encounter them).
In fact, the Rulebook does instruct you... partially. Even though encountering from the hourglass seem mechanically closer to (and probably should have been) a summoned encounter - it is not, and so the normal encounter rules apply, from p10 Rulebook:
"If the encounter is with a bane, and you succeeded at all of the checks required to defeat it, it is defeated; if it is not a villain, banish it"
Granted, it may be more confusing if you did NOT defeat the hourglass bane, as the rules then are:
" If you did not succeed at all of the checks required to defeat the bane, it is undefeated; ...then shuffle the bane back into its location."
Now, 'shuffle into its location' is an impossible instruction, and would normally be ignored... but there's no actual default rule to fall back on for encounters that are neither from location, nor summoned.
So, my solution here would be to look for intent - and given that I have never before seen an encounter thta's neither from location nor summoned - I'd assume the intent to be to treat this encounters as summons, i.e. - you banish them regardless of if you defeat them or not.
Thanks for your input, Longshot11. You're right, the scenario doesn't say to summon, just to encounter. However, it does say in the scenario instructions that if you fail to defeat them, they shuffle back into the hourglass, so at least there was no wondering about that part of it.
I should have banished the defeated ones though, I messed that up. I just discarded them into the hourglass, covering up the previous hour, because I didn't know what to do with them. At least I'll know for next time.
I love this community because you guys are always so friendly and so willing to help out. I'm sure I'll have future questions!
