I run through Rahdo's Runthroughs and make right what once went wrong (via annotations)
When these guilds resolve and the master takes the rewards shown on the two 2nd-place tokens, does he also keep the tokens and possibly count them toward the corresponding MR card, or must the tokens be discarded because in this case they denoted a 1st place award?
I have to say that I didn't understand what you are asking...
If a player won the tile he receives the reward printed on the tile for 1st place and he can place a Master on the tile... He doesn't get any of the 2nd place rewards... Those go to the player that was second if any... That player keeps the tokens.
If no one was second no one gets the rewards and tokens for second place
