Rules for a Student variant of The Ark of the Covenant.
-Students learn from and are counted for majority purposes as half of a follower or Prophet. They may be represented by a minimeeple from the travel edition of Carcassonne, a cube, or whatever is agreed upon.
-It is suggested to use 1 Student per player, yet a 2nd Student could be used.
-One Student may be returned to the owner's hand at the end of their turn.
-A Student may only be placed on a feature which is unoccupied. A Follower or Prophet cannot be placed on a feature which already has a Student.
-A feature with only Students on it is considered to be occupied but not scoreable except for the next two following items.
-A Student does not score for the Ark merely passing by, but the Student does score 1 point when the Ark ends the movement on the same tile as the Student. That way there is time to study and learn.
-A Student is counted as half of a regular Follower during the completion of a Temple. The Student does score 1 point for witnessing the completion of a Temple by being on one of the five tiles.
