Thank you all for the answers
So point 1 seems to be clear and it's a yes.
About point 2
@Krawallburste : of course the OL can't use the feat.. but can the hero himself, this was my question?
@Steve-O : are you sure? is this the official answer?
about the FAQ I have looked twice and the only mention about dark charm / dark host is that :
Q: When a hero is under the effects of “Dark Host,” is he treated as a monsterfor the entire overlord turn?
A: No. That hero is treated as a monster only when the overlord chooses to perform the move and attack action with that hero. Before and after those actions, the hero is still treated as a hero.
Q: If a hero is under the effects of “Dark Host,” can the overlord play “Dash” or “Frenzy” on him?”
A: No. “Dash” and “Frenzy” are played when the overlord is activating a monster. Though the overlord receives a move and attack action with the hero affected by “Dark Host,” it is not considered to be an activation
Nothing more and they say : "Before and after those actions, the hero is still treated as a hero."
I understand that while treated as a monster the hero can not make actions / activations of power, abilities and so on....
But the hero can use them after like with Lysse and OneHand
@griton : I suppose you refer to this
Q : When Leoric is affected by Dark Charm, are his own attacks reduced by one heart, due to his heroe's ability (in other words, as a hero is considered as a monster, does he loose all his heroic abilities, including the 'passive' ones) ?
A : Yes, since he is treated as a monster, any attack he performs would have its damage reduced by 1. A hero is treated as a monster but is still, deep down, heroic at heart =)
The "heroic at heart" I see it as a response to the possibility to loose the ability or like some have asked in the same thread to reverse it -1[Heart] to heroes when Leoric is charmed.
But from my point of view there is a difference between Red Scorpion and Leoric
Leoric ability is a permanent/passive one, the hero has nothing to do to activate his abity
Whereas for Red Scorption we are talking about activating a feat
I asked about activating the feat because it's the more obvious and the example is simple but if the hero can do this why not think he can activate other things / powers (even with exhaustion or fatigue.. after all he has not the OL limitations)
For example the Champion ability "For the cause" or the WildLander "Running shot" (if the OL attackes with a bow, the hero will be able, before the attack, to move the hero!! if he was attacking another hero is the attack cancelled? can the OL choose another taget .. like himself? ..)
I know these are situations that will nearly never happen... but if ever their happen... I want to be prepared ;-)
