5.3.1 Qing Forces may be placed in any region.
Qing Forces are placed in the open green area rather than any particular zone or spot. There is no limit on the number in a region.
Missionary counters are placed on the cross location. Remember,
5.3.5 Missionary counters may be placed in any region that is adjacent to a region that already has a missionary counter. If there are no missionaries on the board, they may be played in any coastal region. Each region may only have one Missionary counter.
