One thing that does not make seem clear to me.
When you recruit a character, you do not use a cylinder. Does this mean you effectively have the amount of actions you bid plus the recruitment action?
Indeed, You don't use a cilinder when recruiting. You use the card of your colour (if you want to use sth). It is - in other words - not an action you have to "pay" for but has to be done in each of the 6 rounds.
