Archer - Town Hall Action
"Swap an opponent's Worker with 1 from the Village". This must be a legal placement. If an opponent has a Black Worker, it cannot be swapped with 1 from the Armoury or Long House (as they require a Grey or White Worker).
Avenger - Crew Action
"If killed, force an opponent to lose a Crew Member also" The Crew Member to be discarded is chosen by the targeted player (not the attacker).
Forager - Crew Action
"Gain 1 additional Provision in the Mill". This is only activated when players take Provisions, not Gold.
Gravedigger - Town Hall Action
"Swap 1 Hired Crew Member with a card from your hand".
This is between the current player and their Hired Crew. The chosen Crew Member is placed back into their hand. They then hire a different Crew Member from their hand (at no cost).
Mercenary - Town Hall Action
"All players must give you 1 Silver or 1 Provision". This decision is made by the targeted players (not the attacker). If they have no Silver, they must offer Provisions (likewise if they have no Provisions). If they have neither, nothing happens.

Scout - Town Hall Action
"Swap an equal amount of cards with an opponent" The attacking player selects an opponent and announces how many cards they wish to swap. Both players select their cards privately and make the swap.
Commonly used phrases worth explaining:
