Question regarding specific scenario where the MOB RULE event card is in effect.

MOB RULE -
Spoiler (click to reveal)
After a player on The Kiln takes a Sell or Sift action, that player must pay 1,000/\ and put it on this card or take 1[d12] unblockable damage.


Sift Action: One Relic Token at a time, or one Sift action for many tokens?

Why I ask...

Rules: While docked with the station with
a Relic Token in your hold, you may take the "Sift" Action. When you Sift
a token, it is removed from your hold and revealed, at which point you pick
which reward to receive, either 1@ or some financial gain.

(This sounds like it is one Relic Token at a time)

Player Ref (back page): Sift Relic Tokens
(Plural, just like with Sell Cargo Cubes)

Since Sell Cargo and Sift are similar, I can see how Sifting could be all at once, but then I could see how perhaps the game wants it to be separate actions for each Sift.

I added highlighting. As for sell vs sift I can see making a deal to sell an amount of cargo as a one time event (regardless of the amount) but each "sift" action is unique with different potential rewards.

Per the quoted rulebook, Sift is an action to resolve a single relic token. You can take multiple Sift actions if you have multiple relics. The mob gets their cut on each relic!

The Sell action is one or more cargo. If you had 4 cargo, you could sell 1, sell 1, then sell 2. Or you could just sell 4 all at once.

Choose one:
A) 2,000cr + 2 cubes (assuming it shows that icon)
B) 1 Fame Point

Usually A is a good deal, if you have the time and inclination to sell the cubes...
