Sorry if these have been answered elsewhere, but it did not show up for me in a conclusive way.
1.Action location with Basic + Adv Scoring tech:
Eg. pay /discard 1X to get 1 stone and 3VP
When i "take" this action a 2nd time because of the Basic Tech, do i pay/discard 1X again or do i get 2stone + 6 VP (and 2 VP for Adv Scoring tech) for the first 1X that i paid/discarded?
Essentially, does the Basic Tech make me receive JUST the benefit twice ( i hope) or do i pay twice too?
You need to pay it again to gain the benefits.
2.Actions that can be activated multiple times (Emerald Haven) / twice:
Can such actions be done twice or multiple times (as the case may be) in that SAME turn or do you have you to exchange one meeeple for one resource one-by-one over a million turns in case of Emerald Haven? I assume the correct ruling on this would also apply to all "May be activated twice" buildings even in the base game?
You can take the action twice in the same turn OR you time in a turn and another time in another turn.
