When I grabbed my copy at gencon, I was given a plastic yellow coin with a pirate on it. Is there any use for it in the game? I was guessing it's an alternate Baron marker?

My group has just been using it as the Baron marker, seems cooler than using the ruler!

The Sword is NOT the first player marker.
Chevee Dodd taught us the game and said it is a common mistake. The sword is for the player who is in the lead and becomes the target of some missions.

After watching one of the Origins demo videos, you are entirely correct. I've not had one of those missions yet with that feature, so hadn't even occurred to me.

It make a better 1st player marker, but I'll have to find something better to use since I didn't pre-order.

That's not about coolness. The ruler gets the ruler - thats the rule!
