Both Drizzt Do'Urden's Dancing Serpent and Cattie-Brie's Heartseeker Stance and Falling Hail Stance only take effect during their attack phase, so it doesn't matter where their stance tokens are placed before their first turn. But Bruenor Battlehammer's Clan Battlehammer Shield takes effect during the villain phase, so it makes a difference.

In my scenario I'm playing with five heroes, and Bruenor is third in play order. The first player brought out a monster which attacks all heroes on the same tile, which, in the first turn, is everybody. If Bruenor starts with his shield stance, he'll get a +2 armor bonus against the first (and possibly second) monster's attack. But the card says "use at the start of your Hero Phase," and he hasn't had a hero phase yet, so I'm not sure.

Then he will not have the stance unt then. Make him first to act if you need this bonus first.

At game setup, all stance tokens are unused so if Bruenor hasn't had his turn yet, he doesn't get a chance to ready his clan shield.

One the stance is up, is it up for the rest of the game?

The stance system seems a little unclear to me - give that Bruenor only has one stance, so I assume you keep it up all the time.

(I assume that it doesn't take an attack to use the stance)...
