Case 1) For playing intrigue cards like accelerate plans, manipulate, sample wares, do i get 1 action or 2 actions since i am assigning 2 meeples, 1 for playing the spell, and the assignment of the second meeple?
Case 2) How about intrigue cards like bribe agent or doppleganger and buildings like zoroaster, do i get an additional action for the 2nd copy action?
For me, it seems to be that Case 2 should give only 1 action since the effect of that one action is the effect of another action, but Case 1 is ambigious here since i am using up 2 of my meeple, shouldnt 1 meeple assignment = 1 action?
the iOS app rules a little differently it seems, that it treats both cases as additional actions for purpose of plot quest triggering but not for completing questions
The Study in the Librarium (Arcana) Plot Quest reward is: After you take an action that allows you to play any Intrigue card, draw an Intrigue card . You can play that card immediately without taking an action.
I may have misremembered, i seems to have a situation in which i play accelerate plans on waterdeep habour and assigning both meeple back into waterdeep habour, The Study in the Librarium triggered thrice, likewise for manipulate
I also have another instance in which i assigned an agent to the habour, only to play bribe agent on a agent in the habour, so that i can play sample ware, so that i can assign to zoroaster, copying yet again the habour to play another card (the reason for the convoluted scheme is that i have spare intrigue cards to burn in the last round and i also have the +2VP every intrigue played plot quest)
i do not recall how many times the librarium triggered but definitely more than once
yet the iOS game do not let me complete more than 1 quest but triggered the "take an action" multiple times
i am rather confused
Case 1: If you are somehow able to place 2 agents a turn, that's definitely two actions.
Case 2: You assigned 1 agent, but are taking two actions. If you copy a meeple in an occupied building, the owner gets the benefit, So I don't see why you wouldn't also get any 'whenever you take an action that does X, collect Y' plot quest triggers off of the copied building as well.
I don't have the rules in front of me, but I believe you are able to only complete one quest per agent (not per action). So based on your description of events, it appears as if the IOS is correct.
I await some more resourceful geek to support or refute my claims.
