We had a village token with what appears to be the great person symbol on the back. I can't seem to find anything on this either in the original rulebook or the expansion book. What does it do? Give you a great person?

Quote:
After the battle, if the invading player won, that
player takes the village marker and looks at it. If it
shows a great person icon, the player discards the
village marker and then gains a random great person.
Otherwise, the village marker shows a resource and
is placed facedown on the player’s civilization sheet,
where it acts like a hut marker, as explained above.


It even has the picture of the token.

Thanks. The rulebook unfortunately is long and it's sometimes hard to find this. I had obviously not looked in the right place.

Fortunately, Fame and Fortune (the expansion) has a small legend and the back detailing the new expansion elements- we had to stop and consult that several times during our first couple of games.
