What is the upside of fighting the monsters instead of just always trying to evade them? I like a good fight but quite frankly when one appears in an encounter why should you. It seems if anything you may get a few wounds and for sure waste time. Shouldn't there be an upside to fighting then, for example searching them and drawing a corpse card to a treasure card. Just wondering what some of you think. I love playing this game however, it is really fun. I like the catacombs and think it is a neat idea.
But then again, what do you think about fighting the monsters and getting some kind of award or at least a chance of a reward.
