Added question for power. When converting power to resources (priests,workers,gold) this is a free action, and the converted resource goes into your stockpile correct?
So if I'm going to pass and I realize I'm going to gain a income of 5 power during my next income phase but I have 1 power in bowl I and 2 in Bowl II the rest are in bowl III. So one of my power income would be wasted. Can I before I pass convert one of my power in Bowl III to a coin?
Yes. You can convert on your turn before or after taking your action and doing so is not an action. As Pass is an action, you can convert it right before or after passing.
