If I have the Appellation "The Efficient" ("When buying a structure, you may use any type of good to discount it.") and The Carpenter ("Wood provides a discount of 12 gold instead of 8") as my active advisor, may I use a wood to discount a Gun Tower (iron structure, 10 cost) by 12 (so a cost of 0)? I believe the answer is yes, but wanted to ask for a clarification *before* trying to do so in our game.

We ruled that this combination lets you get the extra discount for wooden buildings by spending any type of good, but not for non-wooden buildings.

I had the same combo and played it that wood provides the 12 discount for any building, and all other resources provide an 8 discount for any building. No reason I can think of that it wouldn't work this way.

I'd read it that way to. You're "efficient" so can arrange make anything out of anything, and "the carpenter" is really good at working wood so can make one wood go further

This seems correct to me as well, as it says "Wood provides a discount of 12" not "Wood(en) structures are discounted by 12".

Agreed.
The Efficient drops the restriction regarding which good can be used to provide a discount for a particular building. The Carpenter increases the discount when using a particular good. Combining the two allows you to use any good for a discount of 8 regardless of building type, and increases the discount to 12 if you choose to use wood.
