Default Discarding when you don't need to give Charity

If i'm the lowest level player (i don't need to give charity to anybody), can i discard any card of my hand if i don't need to do this?
(It could be good to avoid Cleric to use the top card in discard pile)

You cannot discard cards from your hand unless a rule allows it. Charity allows you to discard to get down to five cards; if you're already at five or fewer cards, you cannot discard just because you want to.

When you are the lowest, Discard to whom?
Discard pile?
Do cards discarded give you the treasures stated on card?
When you discard, can you put them into play on your character or must they go to other players or the discard pile?

Yes, that's what "discard" means. If we meant give them to another player, we would have said that.

No. You're discarding them, not playing them. And if you're talking about monsters, you aren't fighting them so they don't give you any rewards.

If you're trying to avoid Charity, you may play cards as allowed by the rules to get your hand size down to five cards. For instance, you could play a Class or Race, play an Item, or play a Curse on yourself or another player. You can also sell Items from your hand if you have enough (or can add enough from your Items in play) to reach 1,000 Gold Pieces and you're eligible to sell for a level.

If you can't reduce your hand size through those methods, or you don't want to, you must discard the excess cards if you are the lowest Level or give them to the lowest-Level player if not.

That's Charity. If you're discarding for any other reason (to power a card's ability or because a Curse or Bad Stuff forces you to, for instance), you just discard the cards to the discard pile.

Thank you Andrew.
Very new to this and trying to teach my kids how to play.
Sorry if they sound silly, but just need to be sure, that what I am doing is correct.
Thank you for your time
Adam
