Default Wizard Charm Multiple Monsters

To me this is a three-part issue:

A wizard is fighting multiple monsters and charms 1.

1. My understanding based on the forums is the Wizard cannot collect the treasure from using the charm spell until the combat (with other monsters) end, thus preventing the potential for using charm multiple times per turn. Is this correct?

2. If the Wizard charms first monster, then successfully runs away from the second monster. Do they then collect the treasures from the charm spell (even though no monster was defeated)? I assume this is a yes.

3. If the Wizard charms first monster, then fails to run away from the second monster. Do they still collect the treasures from the charm spell (even though they failed to run away)? I assume this is a yes, assuming the bad stuff isn't death.

You don't collect any treasure if you run away. The Monster you charmed drops its treasure, but you can't pick it up unless you win the battle.

And you are correct that a Wizard can't charm more than one monster at a time.

Just to clarify, the card basically says take its treasure. I didn't see anything about the monster dropping the treasure. What you're saying makes sense; you don't have time to pick up the treasure if you're running away in fear, but I didn't see anything in the rules or on the card to support this. Just curious if anyone else can confirm this as the official interpretation.

The game rules say you don't get any rewards if you Run Away. That includes Treasures from charmed monsters.

Thanks for the clarification, Andrew. I was looking in the rules for treasure and missed the rules on running away.
