Reading the Thornwatch rules, I'm struggling to be clear about how hero actions are paid for and how much they cost.
There are two types of non-scenario based Hero Actions, "tracker" card ones every hero gets automatically and "action card" ones you slot onto your hero and then power by stacking cards underneath.
To pay costs, you discard cards up to that value. However, action cards need to be "powered" to use, by tucking other cards underneath them.
On a test run-through, I ended up with three related questions.
Do you also have to pay costs for "action cards" that you have powered? (e.g. you stack three "Brawn" cards under the action cards, and then have to also discard three brawn cards to use it?)
When you have used a "deck power", does it remain slotted onto your card to be re-used or do it and its "powering" cards get discarded?
Can you slot a card, power it, and use its action all on the same turn?
