There was an anwer for the roads looping back to a German castle. You may find it here:

Regarding bazaars, they also provided an answer to the two questions I posted, but the second reply was most strange, so I asked again to verify it:
* The first answer confirmed that the interpretation of the auction rules in WICA. The rules were ambiguous about who starts the next auction after the previous one is completed. Here you can find the rules for auctions just in case:,_Castles_and_Bazaars#4._Host_a_bazaar_auction
* The second answer is about double turns during a bazaar round. Any additional bazaars placed during a bazaar round (no matter if purchased or drawn in a builder turn) are ignored altogether. No problem, however they added a comment about the sequence of builder turns that was weird: "After all auctioned tiles have been placed, you draw the double-turn tiles." So I wanted to double check it, since this would mean that double turns in bazaars are handled in a special way breaking the normal turn sequence for double turns.
I hope to have some final clarification soon and post both answers together.  ;)

Finally, about messages we have no more information besides they assume there is one round of messages per turn... What we don't know if this should happen twice in a double-turn... I would say yes, but who knows? If so, It happens after 3. Scoring a feature but should it happen between the Catapult and Bazaars? Easter Nests are scored at that point too...

No newer news?

Nope. I'm posting one new question each week. No answers yet but they replied a few days ago that answers will come eventually.
