Done.
How many people voted for Nocturne last time?

2
Capitalism + Pirate ship: Primitive Accumulation of Capital, the triangular trade.

I liked most of the cards so far and these are also exciting. However, I'm somewhat concerned the cards introduced today add to the number of cards you buy, just to prevent an opponent from getting/keeping something. Of course, it's part of the game, but it tends to be more enjoyable developing your own strategy (taking into consideration what the opponent is doing), rather than being forced in a particular direction. Maybe the cards are exciting enough to compensate for it in the long run, but I am worried about games with them being less fun because of this element.
I would say they make game more political rather than boring.

So, if we can manage Lost in the Woods without artifact, why should we introduce this term? just to make them items to be owned?
maybe we can change flag into 'flag fluttering' or sth. to make it a state.

Some plausible future card names that would be doublets of existing cards: Peon, Money, State, Esquire, Eremite, Fief, Fee

Less likely ones: Bench, Fabric, Place, Guy, Wit, Fjord

Using such similar words might eventually cause translation difficulties, if that hasn't already happened.
Some cards have translation difficulties in Chinese. Such as Thief/Bandit/Rogue.

it's good Remake fuel, etc.
doesn't being good fuel mean that it's a bad card?
EDIT: grammar mistake

7
Duact's Art looks like Lucky Coin.

+2 card then trash a card is strong for me. Only Masquerade do this before. And there is villagers...

I'm a player from China, not familiar with western mythology. I try to find the connection between Pixie and Goat in Google and Wikipedia, but nothing was found. Could anybody tell me why they are a couple of Kingdom-Heirloom cards here?
There's not really a connection. The mythology in this set is mostly Celtic. The people who believed in faeries were peasants; they'd have goats. The things the faeries did involved everyday life.
Thank you! I have to say this expansion has so many difficult things about western culture for me to understand.

The expansion with most new mechanics so far.

15
Is Twice Miserable -4 VP?
yes, tested it just now
Also why are we using spoiler tags? We're all here for previews.
well, just to follow Gazbag in yesterday's preview, maybe he want to keep some mystica.

Other hexes:
Plague: Gain a curse to your hand.
Locusts: Trash the top card of your deck. If it's a Copper or Estate, get a Curse. Otherwise , gain a cheaper card that shares a type with it.
Bad omens: Put your deck into your discard pile. Look through it and put 2 Coppers from it onto your deck (or reveal you can't).
Haunting: If you have at least 4 cards in hand, put one of them onto your deck.
Poverty: Discard down to 3 cards in hand.
Misery: If it's your first Misery this game, take Miserable. Otherwise, flip it over to Twice Miserable.(Miserable: -2vps, Twice Miserable: -4vps )
Famine: Reveal the top 3 cards of your deck. Discard the Actions. Shuffle the rest into your deck.
Fear: If you have at least 5 cards in hand, discard an Action or Treasure (or reveal you can't).
Delusion: If you don't have Deluded or Envious, take Deluded.(Deluded:At the start of your Buy phase,return this and you can't buy actions this turn)

wow, so much mechanics, maybe a little too much, but at least Fool Lost in the Wood is quite interesting!

I only showed off three Boons, but of course the online version will have all twelve this week, so that the cards work correctly.
Will we get these cards' preview online today or later this week?

This dog reminds me of Hachikō, that loyal Japanese dog who kept going to the train station every day, even after the death of his master.
ハチ公,in Chinese 忠犬八公

I feel like someone predicted something very close to some of these in the Heirloom speculation thread, but I don't think anyone called the paired start cards mechanic.

I dunno about the heirloom speculation thread, but I basically called Cursed Gold back in 2013. :)

you're Fortune teller! I'm sure i have read this thread before. very impressive.

this will be one of my favourite mechanics!

These cards really need skill. Surprised when finding Raider has no connection with Raid.
