Type of Pile

What determines the types of a pile? Is it the top card while there is one and if the pile is empty, the randomizer?
Please confirm or correct the following statements:
  • I can use Pathfinding to put my +card token on the Encampment/Plunder pile while the top card is Encampment
  • Encampment/Plunder is an Action pile when the top card is Encampment or when the pile is empty
  • Encampment/Plunder is a Treasure pile when the top card is Plunder
  • I can not use Pathfinding to put my +card token on the Encampment/Plunder pile while the top card is Plunder
  • I can use Pathfinding to put my +card token on the Castles pile while the top card is Small Castle or Opulent Castle, but not any other castle
  • The Castles pile is a Treasure/Victory/Castle pile at the start of the game
  • The Castles pile is a Victory/Castle pile when it's empty

The randomizer. So Encampent can take any token, even when Plunder is top. Castles can take no token even if Small Castle is on top.

If you have a fan card you want to be created, just post about it here! I'd love to take a look at it.

Edge case: Embargo, Tax, Trade Route.

Since the number of points is within a constant factor of the number of city quarters, in the long run we can get (4 - ε) ↑↑ n points in n turns for any ε > 0.

I think it was clear I meant player tokens, but yes.

The exception there is that you can Seaway a Small Castle.

Contrary to popular belief, I do not run the wiki all on my own.  There are plenty of other people who are actively editing.  Go bother them!

Assuming you have cost reduction, of course.

This is sad.  I want to be able to ferry small castle, ambassador back my two humble castles (opponents reveal trader), and then stonemason a squire into two humble castles and dame josephine with groundskeepers in play.
