As the Darklings, are you allowed to combine bon1 with priests for digging? It would look like this:Yes. The rules explicitely mention this case:
"action bon1. dig 2. Build I9"
I need to make sure this would be 1 action rather than 2, as my opponents can easily block me in between the actions. Thank you!
In Phase I “Income”, collect (pg. 19)
2 additional Coins. Also, in
Phase II as a Special action,
you may take Action #1 getting
1 free Spade for this purpose. Use
an Action token to keep track of
using this Special action. (You
may acquire additional Spades
by paying Workers if this Spade
does not suffice to transform into
your Home terrain. Darklings
pay 1 Priest per Spade.)
Btw. you can also test that this works with the Planning function on snellman.
