Oh, and Scrying pool for me is the example of cartoony artwork done well, and fitting in well.

I'd never thought of explorer as cartoony.  :)

9. Herbalist



I'm pretty sure the dude here is just me at the Indian market. I mean, my wife tells me to pick up a cup of the yellow stuff and I don't ask questions. It's hard for me to have real commentary about this picture since my perception has been permanently warped thanks to ADK's wonderful fanfic, which you should all read and give him respect instead of me: http://forum.dominionstrategy.com/index.php?topic=10809.msg363315#msg363315

I linked to it, read the whole thing, loved it, and then went up to give ADK a +1 only to realize that I had already done so. Which meant that I must have already read it (I am not one to give out a +1 lightly). But had absolutely no memory of it! Which seems crazy given how wonderful it is.

8. Vineyard



Those are some well-kept hedgerows. I like Vineyard's art more these days because it reminds me a lot of a Vineyard I visited last year. Clearly the owners of this place have class. The fine "lardo vino" prepared at this vineyard is enjoyed by people across the entire Dominion nation, except for those kosher non-alcoholics. You could buy your own bottle, but the jerks here only accept Potions as payment, and everybody switched to Coin because they decided you needed at least three Potion-costing products available to consider purchasing things and nobody wanted to stock any more of those. Madness, I tell you. I would have bought that bottle regardless. Wine makes a great future re-gift.

How'd they get that stone into that bottle though?
The Philosopher's Stone isn't a stone. It's a substance, typically imagined in powder form (as here).


Sounds like Harry Potter got it wrong then.
That was a Sorcerer's stone...

Only in America.

Because long words in the title would turn off the readers. Too much stuff to read, apparently.

Three syllables = fine
Four syllables = WHAT? WHAT IS THIS...WELL, SORCERY?

It wasn't just that it was a big word. They just didn't think kids would want to read something with the word "philosopher" in the title. Like it would be a boring book about actual philosophers or whatever.

i wonder if the issue in europe is some weird thing against the word "sorceror"?  i know they had problems with "ninja" for a while, which is why TMNT was called Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles there

There wouldn't have been an issue in Europe since the original English title was Philosopher's stone (which is also the name of the mythical artifact). This was entirely a weird decision on the American publisher's part. What is hilarious to me is they re-recorded every scene of the films where someone named the stone for the American version.

Would have been more interesting though.

Well, I don't know about the rest of Europe, but they have always been ninjas in Italy, afaik.

7. Possession



Cute picture. Gotta love his hat. What on earth is going on with his body, though? At first I thought Possession Guy was RIPPED, but now I think he might just be wearing a shirt that's way too small. Either way, I don't think the awesome hat can make up for that fashion disaster.

6. Apothecary



He has a winning smile. That'll get you everywhere. Smile, everyone! Stevie Wonder said it best. "A smiling face is an Earth-like star / A frown can't bring out the beauty that you are/ Love within and you'll begin smiling." Pass him some Copper and drugs, everyone.

5. Alchemist



That beard tho

Possession Guy is actually a lady-woman

As evidenced by his very pronounced breastage

I suppose the nails should have been a giveaway too. That or she's trans. Oops, can I say that? I'm not sure what privilege laws dictate anymore. Better just let it be.

"trans" is fine.  "tranny" is not.  General advice: if it sounds like it's probably a slur, it's probably a slur.

Well then what's the gender of the person inside the crystal ball? It has the body of a male, but it's being possessed by a trans female. I'm so confused.

Possession is clearly a transmission, because 1) it's very expensive and 2) when it works right, it's clutch.

I don't know, but it probably involves flipping your Gender token.

4. University



Anyone want to go my homework for me? No takers? Well, at least I have this fine quadrangle to walk across and bemoan the loss of my humanity. I wonder if that is the official flag of the Dominion universe or simply this university's? Maybe their mascot is a wildfire. I could think of worse.

3. Apprentice



This isn't so much an apprentice as a pyromancer, but maybe he's just serving some greater mage we never see. I have to wonder why he summoned that flame elemental. Maybe he's just preparing for Dominion U's pep rally. We can only speculate. At least he looks good doing it. Those arms are so angular.


2. Golem



I want one! Just look at those cute little stubby arms carrying all those planks for the city otter dam. Golem is maybe the cutest card in the Alchemy expansion, and he's up against such juggernauts as Scrying Pool, Herbalist, and Alchemist.
