There's a fair number of quests in LotW that use tokens as various types of survivors or villagers, and the rules on them seem at least a bit fuzzy to me.
In Gold Digger, you have 4 miners that can only be attacked by Valyndra and take all effects from her attacks. Now, it doesn't specify that they are immune to conditions, and Valyndra can inflict Burning - but they don't get to activate! So can they burn, and would it be reasonable to state they do after the last hero's turn? And would they burn adjacent heroes?
Rude Awakening and its survivors are even worse. It doesn't specify that survivors are treated as heroes, but my gut instinct said they should - so I allowed my heroes to use Stoneskin on them, for example, and to pass through them while moving - or for the tokens, to pass through heroes. Similarly, I suppose I could use Truipwire on them (though I never needed to do that). Is that interpretation correct?
As for the innkeeper, it doesn't specify he's considered a hero as well - that raises the concern of barghest being the strongest possible group to leave inactive in the cottage, because they could howl, the innkeeper doesn't have any Will, and not having fatigue to suffer either he would take damage from the howl - is it valid? Come to think of it, can a barghests fatigue survivors with their howl?
Last vaguely related thing, because I don't have the book handy: I'm told on bgg that in this quest mosnters reinforce at the end of the OL turn - is that correct?
