The Abbot - Role on a garden
« on: December 07, 2021, 09:35:57 AM »
AB01. An abbot placed on a monastery is a monk, but what is the role of an abbot placed on a garden?


Example: Placing the abbot on a garden. We don’t know its role.

Notes:
* This is relevant for the Inquisition event of the Wheel of Fortune whereby players receive 2 points for each monk they have.

Current understanding:
* An abbots placed on a garden should not be considered a monk since the feature is not a monastery.

Proposals:
* Community role indicating the abbot placed on a garden is not a monk but a gardener (or an abbot).
* Avoid any confusion with meeples placed as abbots on special monasteries (if the abbot role is also considered)

EDIT: Included proposal summary

Clearly isn’t a monk. I see that intention of HiG is to do a same system of a monk but without a monastic building. An Abbot in a garden= gardener. But Abbot is a religious role even in a garden… If the rules talking about monks (on a religious building) Abbot on a garden doesn’t count I think…

I agree, not a monk.
When you would have any interaction with monastaries, i think Abbots would not be included, as they are not on monastaries, or monastary-like features. The scoring of the gardens work similarly, but that does not mean they are the same.
A meeple on a road connected to a German Cathedral doesn't count as a knight in a city, even though they score the same (i know, vague example, but still)

Gardens are not monasteries so they are not affected by vineyards or challenges! There is no garden placement restrictions around shrines for example.  ;)

Exactly, gardens and abbots is something apart…

I guess if you're playing with someone and you can't agree, it'll come down to a friar fight.   8)
