just curious if you can search at the end of an encounter - or does it end as soon as you fulfill the victory conditions? For the ones that are races I'm guessing that choosing to search will be a hard decision as it's that or try to fulfill the victory conditions...

Nope! laugh

And don't underestimate Search! Searching all the tokens is about 25gp per player, which is the same (or more than) the gp reward of the quests!

It is at least 25gp per player (aside from the one "nothing" card), it actually averages closer to 37gp per search because of the treasure chest.

We have a theif in our group. Being able to search so far away and pass if you don't like what you find can bring it up to $50 per person.

If he is able to reach/search all piles, there's a good chance he will find a free items, which has really helped my character.

Our theif risks life, limb and even the quest to search those piles.

Of course it seems like once you get the Iron Axe and the Mana Weave, you are pretty much set for Act I, ymmv.
