A 'quest' is made up of one or more 'encounters'. In several 'quests' made up of more than one 'encounter' a Lieutenant is only present on the map for some of the 'encounters'. The rules for relics states: "If the overlord has no lieutenant in a given quest, ... he receives no benefit for the relic's abilities." In that rule, is the word "quest" meant to be the word "encounter" or are relic abilities available during encounters that do not contain a lieutenant as long as the lieutenant appears in one of the quest's encounters?
Thanks for the ruling.
