Robinson Crusoe

Who counts as a character? Who counts as a player?

Obviously, the real-life human players are players. Beyond that, Jenny (scenario 3) is a character, and she counts as a player for the purposes of cards that affect all players, but not for the purposes of working out the costs of the Shelter, Roof and Palisade. Friday is not a character or a player: effects that specifically affect characters do not affect him, he can never be the First Player and his death doesn't end the game.
