This is a post to collect mock-ups of the cards in the OP that have mock-ups. I don't make mock-ups of other people's cards myself, but if other people have made them, I'll include them here since many people find mock-ups easier to look at than plain text versions.

I'm not including the ones from LastFootnote's Enterprise just because all of that set is likely to be added to my list of tested-and-enjoyed-fan-cards list, so just go to the original thread to see those mock-ups.

These are in the same order as in the OP. Please see the OP for design credits.




The rest of the cards in the OP have no mock-up (that I know of).
EDIT: Removed a few whose images had been removed from the host site.

For now...

You can find Poet by MarketSquire in my thread.

Played a few couple games with fan cards this evening. Added Realm Tax by Cookielord and Garrison by Drab Emordnilap/NoMoreFun to the OP. (My slightly modded Garrison is a cross between Drab Emordnilap's Garrison and NoMoreFun's Rear Admiral. They were already very similar.) Also added an old version of Cookielord's Deposit (I didn't notice till just now that he had removed it from his fan expansion and now has a completely different card with the same name. <shrug> I still like this version.) Realm Tax and Garrison also added in this post with mock-ups.

PS: The official Necromancer card is cool, but I still like Asper's Necromancer better.

Added Bargain (event) by Asper and Labyrinth by General Ramos to the OP and the post with mock-ups.
Other cards likely to be added soon: Joust by Beri, Blacksmith by Fragasnap, Rally (event) by eHalcyon, and a card called Graveyard which was from a very old fan card list and I have no idea who designed it.

Currently, I rate this list only by number of games I've used them in. Soon, I'll give them ratings based on which are my favorites.

I haven't posted in this thread for a while, but I still play lots of games with other people's fan cards.

Added Alley (by Asper) and Shoveler (unknown designer) to the list in the OP.

Quote
Ally
$1 Action
+3 Cards
Return this to the Supply.

Quote
Shoveler
Cost $3 - Action
Reveal cards from your deck until you reveal 3 cards that cost $3 or less. Discard the other cards, then choose one: Put them in your hand; or Trash one and discard the others.
I don't remember where I got this card, except that it isn't mine. If you remember where you've seen it before, let me know.

Also, played with this fanmade event for the first time this evening:
Quote
Appraise
$0 Event
You may discard a card costing at least $3 that isn't a victory card. If you do, +1 Buy, and cards cost $1 less this turn, but not less than $0.
(This was from one of the weekly design contests, but I forgot to make a note of who designed it. I'll look that up in the thread later...)
Only one game with it so far, but it worked well in that game.

That's an interesting Lookout variant that gives up non-terminality for the sake of eliminating the chance of having to trash good stuff.

Appraise

Basically this converts all non-junk cards into Highways (it is slightly better, Night-style, always able to play it) that do not draw. That allows you to add more terminals to your deck than you would otherwise; with two/three Buys they are at least Silvers/Golds.

Thanks. I'll add his name in the OP.

Added these two three to the list in the OP:
Quote
Solicitor
Cost $5 - Action - Attack
Draw up to 6 cards in hand. Take 1VP from the Solicitor pile. If you do, each other player gains a copper.
-
Setup: Put 10 VP tokens on the Solicitor pile.
I have this recorded as being by Asper, but I can't find it anywhere in his thread. Did he remove it from the thread or am I mistaken about who made it?

Quote
Historian
Cost $5 - Action
Draw up to 4 cards in hand. Trash up to two cards from your hand. Draw up to 6 cards in hand.
(modded. original by Fragasnap.) I had the original version on this list at one time, then decided I didn't like it as much. Now I'm adding this modified version which strengthens the trashing aspect of the card. Source thread: Greed.

Yes, I like draw-to-x cards.

Quote
Manor
Cost $4 - Action
+1 Card, +2 Actions. You may gain an Estate into your hand.
-
While this is in play, Estates are Action/Victory cards with the following play effect: choose either +1 Card or +1 Buy.
By Cookielord.

Also, I edited the OP to separate cards I have since removed from my fan card rotation (usually because there's a very similar official card that came out after the fan card was made).

A themed kingdom with fan cards:

Chapel, Guardian, Groundskeeper, Thief*, Swamp Hag
Manor (in the previous post), Majordomo (in the OP), Haunted Mansion, Statue, Dollhouse/Chest of Expensive Clothes (see below). Way of the Ghost
Quote
Haunted Mansion
$6 - Action - Victory
Gain a spirit from one of the spirit piles. Take a hex token per $ in its cost.
-
If you have a Ghost in play when the game end is triggered, Worth 3VP. Otherwise Worth 2VP.
(modded. based on the card by FlyEaglesFly)
(Hex tokens are my name for VioletCLM's VioletCLM's Mutineers. short explanation: Mutineers are tokens worth -1VP, but you can discard a card during your action phase to get rid of one.)
Quote
Statue
$4 - Action - Victory
Set this aside with an Action card from your hand.
-
Worth VP equal to the cost in coin of the set aside card, but no more than 5VP and no less than 1VP.
(by X-tra. my only mod was adding a minimum VP in case you never get to set it aside.)

Dollhouse / Chest of Expensive Clothes (split pile by me, 5 of each)
Quote
Dollhouse
$2 - Treasure
+$1.
Reveal the top two cards of your deck. You may discard one. If you discarded an Action card, lose a hex token. Put a revealed Copper into your hand. Return any remaining to the top of your deck.
Quote
Chest of Expensive Clothes (not sure if this should cost $5 or $6)
$5 - Treasure
+$4.
Take 2 hex tokens.
Quote
Way of the Ghost
Way - Night - Duration
At the start of your next turn: +1 Action.
If this costs at least $5, +1 Card and you may trash this to play your next Action card twice.
(You may only use this way during the night phase, using an action card.)

Who recognizes the theme?
(*Thief is gone obviously, so I'll use Villain instead when I play the themed kingdom. Thief fits the theme character better than Villain, but Villain fits better than Bandit.)

Time's up. no more guessing (not that I got any guesses). The answer is: The Haunting of Bly Manor
Manor, Haunted Mansion, Way of the Ghost - self-explanatory
Chapel, Dollhouse/Chest of Expensive Clothes - self-explanatory if you've watched the show
Guardian -Dani the Nanny
Statue - for the statue garden
Groundskeeper - Jamie
Thief/Villain - Peter Quint
Swamp Hag - Viola/ The Lady in the Lake
Majordomo - Mrs. Grose (not quite, but I don't have any fan cards called 'housekeeper')

Here's another themed kingdom if anyone wants to guess what the theme is:
Lackeys, Poet (in the OP), Arsonist (in the OP), Generous Benefactor (RSG), Theatre*, Mill, Secret Society*, Inventor, Scholar, Baker  (use shelters, replacing Necropolis with a Ruined Library)

Quote
Theatre
$4 - Action
This card has the same types and abilities as the card on the Theatre mat, but gives an additional +1 Action when played.
---
Setup: Put a $2 costing Action that gives +1 Action unconditionally onto the Theatre mat.
by grrgrrgrr (Thanks to those who made the trello page for the Weekly card design contest or it's be nearly impossible to find any particular card in that thread unless it was a winner or runner up. I liked this one.)
Quote
Secret Society
$4 - Action
Shuffle the Secret Society deck and reveal the top 2 cards. Play this as one of the revealed cards. This is that card until it leaves play.
-
Setup: Secret Society deck is made up of ~10 different action cards each costing $5.
by Cookielord. My only mod was making it cost $4 instead of $3.

The themed kingdom from the previous post is for Lemony Snicket's Series of Unfortunate Events:
Inventor - Violet
Scholar - Klaus
Baker - Sonny
Arsonist - Count Olaf  (not the Count card, because I doubt he's really a count anyway)
Lackeys - Count Olaf's goons
Poet - Isadora Quagmire
Generous Benefactor/Fortune (as split pile) - the Baudelaire's inheritance
Theatre - also Count Olaf and his goons (because they're a theatre troop)
Mill - The Miserable Mill
Secret Society - the VFD  (I even made a 1-of-a-kind Sugar Bowl card which only ever appears in the Secret Society deck or the Black Market.)


And now my Christmas kingdom:
Sleigh
Stargazer/Distant Lands (as a split pile) - the wise men
Messenger - the angels (I considered Herald, but the kingdom needed +buy)
Shepherd
Priest - Zechariah (John's father)
Inn
Stables
Crown
Spices - the wise men's gifts
Tyrant - king Herod
Way of the Sheep

(Stargazer is in my other thread)
and Tyrant: (I thought I had it posted somewhere else, but I guess not)
Quote
Tyrant
+2 Actions.
Each player (including you) reveals cards from their deck until they reveal an action or treasure card costing at least $3. Put yours in your hand and discard the rest; each other player discards theirs and shuffles the other revealed cards back in their deck.
This used to be called Patrician so it needed a new name. (It's handy to put off renaming a card that needs a new name in case you need something for a themed kingdom.)
