I just need to confirm this with other people:

Quote:
When you gain Influence, you always earn the total Influence depicted at the tops of the Noble and Ship cards in your Portfolio (i.e. on the cards in the top row)


So, when I gain influence from a reward when building a store or opening a public building, I also gain influence from ships and nobles in my portfolio, right?

No. Those two are rewards with influence.
There are only two ways of gaining influence. By building a ship and by pleasing the marquis during a church scoring.

The envelope icon with no number is the Gain Influence icon, which means to total the ships and nobles in the top of your portfolio.
An envelope with a number in it just gives you that number's amount of influence, period.

Thanks guys!! I thought that might be the case but that "when you gain influence" had me thinking whenever influence was gained.

One more follow up question, will clerical tiles that give bonus influence give that bonus when receiving influence as a reward or only when "gaining influenced" from boats and nobles?

The Gaining Influence mechanism is a bit tricky. While the benefit of buildings ships is pretty obvious, it forces players to consider paying attention to the clergy as well. Brilliant!

It states in the player aid that clergy tile #7 also applies when receiving influence as a reward. I’m interpreting this as 3+2 for 5 total.
