Sorry if this has been answered previously but I cannot find it. In the RtL rule book it explains how to handle conditions on monsters but it does explain conditions that require "at the start of you turn test..". How is that handled (ex. A monster has the Poisoned conditions)?

Quote:
Condition cards often specify effects related to a figure’s turn.
For monsters, familiars, and other figures that do not have their
own turn, “turn” should be read as “activation” instead.

This is actually true for both, Road to Legend and standard play with an OL.

If you're asking how do monsters test to remove conditions like poison, the answer is that unless they have a value for the specific stat, as in the case of lieutenants (though not agents) they automatically fail any attribute tests. That means once they're poisoned, most monsters cannot get rid of it short of an Overlord card or relic power.
