Question about The “Age of Darkness” Expansion Heroes (discarded after using their special effect) - To defend myself against activated heroes that have "special effects," can I use the protective actions that are effective against the corresponding attack-action?

Answer

No. Although Godfrey's effect resembles a Traitor's effect, being an intriguer allows Godfrey to get past the Lookout Tower and Heinrich the Sentinel. Also the Grove of Peace cannot be used against these cards.

Note: The Grove of Peace belongs to the Age of Enlightenment
