So some maester cards state that they must be played at the "start" of your turn, does this mean when it ticks over to your turn and before you count and collect reinforcements and gold or anytime during "step one" on the turn order sheet? I feel like these cards are designed to be played before you collect your gold so you have to save up and not spend all your gold during yours and your opponents turn...?

The cards with these effects are:

1) Best Laid Plans, all opponents roll a 6-sided die. Lowest Rollers lose 1 victory point.

2) Hired Thieves. Steal 200 gold from each opponent.

3) Mourning the Fallen. Costs to use Character Cards and Maester Cards are doubled for all opponents until the start of your next turn.

Considering that these are all powerful and almost unblockable effects, it would make sense that you are being prevented from paying them easily.

Also, note that "play before you declare invasions for a turn" for after upkeep but before battling, as well as "Play when you collect reinforcement armies" for playing during upkeep.

I am inclined to believe that your reading is correct, and these must be at the very start of your turn, before collecting income.
