The Generous Woman allows for placing Orange and Black disks in the Shaman portal spot. The Portal Action rule says that each portal spot can hold two portals, "one of each color shown." To the left of this rule in the rulebook is an illustration showing all three portal spots, each with two portals (aka disks) in them. The Shaman portal spot shows an orange and white disk in it, so I take it the rule is saying this portal spot can only hold orange and white disks. Is that correct? If so, what does this Generous Woman ability mean? It would appear that the Shaman portal spot is not allowed to hold a black portal disk.

The Generous Woman allows for placing either an Orange or a Black disk in the Venus portal spot (not the Shaman portal spot). This is indicated by the Venus statuette icon depicted in the disks, also by the text "Place VENUS portal".

Thanks for the reply, Phil. I now realize that it is the Vassal module that threw me. When I look at the actual cards in my physical copy, it is clear that the Generous Woman places in the Venus portal. The Vassal game has the incorrect text on this card ("Place SHAMAN portal").

Just wanna mention I will update the Vassal module asap. The current version is still from late beta stages.
