I'll assume for expediency that you want it in your first palace.

The new player order is Patrick (18), Karzac (12), Sarcasmorator (10), aturtledoesbite (9), rkdn42 (9).

No player has a lady or privilege, and there's no event this month, so players score πŸ‘‘1 per palace. Because the person point track is the tiebreaker, Karzac is currently winning.

Hmmm, after all of that parading I deserve a reward. I’ll purchase a Small Privilege. (The large ones are a bit too pricey for me.)

(also, I think I’m at 18 on the person track. Soldier (5) + Monk (6) + parade (2) + Soldier (5) = 18)

My new soldier is getting along so well with my monk, that I’m going to get another Monk (6) to hang out with my original soldier.

(Yep, I’m going all in on the person track. We’ll see if this works out for me or blows up in my face!)

You have a young healer, who provides one unit of healing. An old healer would provide two units.

That propels rkdn42 into second place in the turn order.

Peace this month. Contagion is on deck.

Points for the round are as follows:
  • Patrick: 3 (2 palace, 1 privilege)
  • rkdn42: 3 (3 palace)
  • Karzac: 3 (3 palace)
  • Sarcasmorator: 2 (2 palace)
  • aturtledoesbite: 3 (3 palace)

has his pick of the lot.

Remember that you will play a person card before you lose people due to contagion.

Wait, why did my healer get spent? I thought I was getting a second healer. I must be misunderstanding something.

You recruited a healer in your person phase. To do that, you had to play your healer card. If you want to recruit another healer, you'll need to spend one of your two wild cards.

Anyway, I have two questions of my own.
First, do person points translate to score in any way at the end of the game?

Second,
Anytime you add a person to a palace, including at the start of the game, you advance on the person track according to the person's person value. (Note that if you take a person who you immediately fire, that person was never placed in your palace.)
The parenthetical implies that if you fire someone you hired in a previous month, you still keep their person points?
