If you are the first to add an inﬂuence marker to a location, place your marker on TOP of the disc to become its ruler. If you are the second (and different) player to add a marker, place it beside the disc to become a serf. This earns you the right to tend a landscape.
On a future turn, either player may add 1 final inﬂuence marker. If you are already the ruler, add your marker beside the disc to reinforce your rule as a subject. If you are a serf, bump the ruler down to the serf position, leaving your new marker on top as the location’s new ruler.
