I assume that the Messenger helpers give you an extra Errand Boy, but their symbol is not explained on the back of the manual.

So...

Does the Messenger give you an extra Errand Boy only when you take a Planning option that has one Errand Boy (so two Errand Boys is the maximum), or do you get the extra Errand Boy regardless (e.g. you can have three or even four Errand boys every turn?).

If it's the latter, how do you mark this in a five player game? Do you use other markers as your extra Errand Boys?

The Messenger is a promo and therefore is not explained in the base game's rules.

The card has its own dedicated page and forums: Last Will: Messenger Promo Card

Its rules are here:

Here's the section about which tokens to use:
Quote:
Third and fourth errand boys can be represented by coins, buttons, or other small tokens. However, this is usually unnecessary. If you have the only Messenger, your third errand boy is sent last, so you simply choose one of the remaining errand opportunities and perform that errand. There is no need to mark it, because no one plays after you. Similarly, if two Messengers are in play, it is not difficult to remember which opportunity the first extra errand boy blocked.

Fantastic. Thanks. I didn't realise the Messenger was a promo - that's what comes of getting games in trade!
