It's often times best to include the text of whatever you might be complaining about (many of us respond at places the game is no where near us). For those unfamiliar with Sil's feat:



Sil is very good at making sure the heroes get all the Search Tokens. But she's no game-breaker. Since the Search Tokens are what help the heroes win the campaign, they would probably have gotten most if not all of them without Sil anyways. What Sil does is give the heroes a couple actions per encounter (i.e. the actions they would have used searching). It's nice, but nothing major.

Plus, as for stopping it, you can have large monsters camp on Search Tokens, and I believe this Feat would be vulnerable to Trap Cards like Web Trap, Uthuk Demon Trap, Curse of the Monkey God. Explosive Runes, Poison Dart, Tripwire, and Pit Trap.

Putting large monsters in her path would help. That's about the only reliable way — wording and status as a feat means she can't be Tripwired (move action only), Web Trap won't stop her (though she and surrounding heroes may be Immobilized), Curse can't prevent its use, etc. But as shnar points out, every search token is an opportunity for a trap, and you can camp on or make her take the long way around to search tokens to limit the feat's effectiveness.

Still, Web Trap won't stop it (like JH said), and Uthuk Demon Trap, Explosive Runes, Poison Dart, and Pit Trap all test against Awareness, which Silhouette has a 5 in. If it's Silhouette as a Thief that's even better with the Lucky Charm.

Really, the only way to stop her from using her Heroic Feat to cover a ton of ground is to block her with monsters.

Even monster blocking won't stop Thief-Sil with Tumble. At that point she's basically unstoppable. On the up side her heroic ability is garbage.

In November you can look forward to Valyndra's Lieutenant Pack, which has this promising looking counter to Silhouette:

Won't work, I think. No search actions in the feat (you may search, but do not perform search actions).
