-Search rolls are opposed by Hidden rolls from each [[entity|entity]] or other Hidden object or feature within a region. The [[DM|DM]] ​makes all Hidden rolls in secret. Ties for this opposed roll are in favor of the Search. If the PC fails the opposed roll, they are simply told that they find nothing; otherwise they are informed of each thing found. If there is nothing Hidden within a region, the DM still makes a (fake) secret roll; the player is informed that they found nothing regardless of the result of their Search roll.+Search rolls are opposed by Hidden rolls from each [[entity|entity]] or other Hidden object or feature within a region.

 Search is a PC-specific function. When the PCs are hidden, such as in [[stealth|stealth]] scenarios, [[Challenge|Challenges]] such as [[Seeker|Seekers]] use special rules and the normal Action vs. [[Reaction|Reaction]] system to try to find them. Search is a PC-specific function.
