Treasure Chest Compilation - Art/Name Suggestions

Current Card List

One thing that has come up in the past as a blocker for card images is finding appropriate art (preferably public domain). This thread is for suggesting possible art for contest winners, so that LastFootnote (or whoever) can more easily mock up the cards.

You can also use this thread to suggest new names for cards - eHalcyon's Storyteller in particular needs a new name because of the conflict with the official card which came out later. The final name is up to the designer of the card, but if you think you have a more appropriate name for any of the cards, feel free to throw them out - worst that can happen is an epic flame war leading to a mass exodus from the site they'll say no.

People seemed to not like the name Recycle from long ago when Recycle was chosen. Shipyard was deemed to be an appropriate replacement name. Plus it would probably be easier to find art to fit that. I would recommend changing the name from Recycle to Shipyard.

I have an idea for a replacement name for Storyteller: Bard. It's a synonym for Storyteller, but unlike Storytellers, they tell their stories with music.

There's also Playwright that could work.

Playing Company, Travelling Players, and Raconteur were eHalcyon's suggestions in the other thread (along with Bard from LibraryAdventurer).

Raconteur is too similar to Storyteller, no? The other suggestions seem pretty good.

Art for shipyard, other suggestions are welcome of course. Mocked it up. First time doing this, so don't mock. If someone else wants to make a prettier version the link to the picture is here.

Other suggested images for other people's cards. EDITS: Of course these are just suggestions, I certainly don't mean to dictate the card art for all of the cards in the set, but I do enjoy searching for images and think the ones below would be pretty good. If a card creator specifically dislikes the card art suggestion, post and I'll remove the suggestion.

Stalwart Mule


Indulgences


Mortuary


Florist

The theme of the card is somebody performing a story for an audience at this harvest celebration. Like, each new action card you play is an additional line to the story, which has a bit of an improv play-to-the-audience feel to it.  So Playwright doesn't fit as well here, though I think it's great in general.  I also feel like Bard may be more fitting to a castle of nobles than a celebration of peasants.




@yuma, the image needs to go behind the frame.  If you have a link to the source image, somebody can help with that.

Yeah I know... All I had access to was Microsoft paint and I don't think it can do that. I understand that photoshop or GIP (sp?) can but I don't have easy access to those. The source image is hyperlinked in the same post as the mock up.

Oops, didn't notice the link.  If nobody else does it, I'll see if I can later...

Here are some more. Semi-intentionally and interestingly I am finding a lot of good art that features women.

Elixir


Bard (if that ends up being chosen)


Prefecture (this is actually more descriptive of a prefect... a person who works in a prefecture)


Magic Lamp


Servicemen

It would be good to include a link to the source so that credit can be given.  And permission should be sought if the image isn't public domain or doesn't have an appropriate license available.

For some reason I was looking through Alayna Lemmer's website (she's done some art for Dominion, like the Champion line I think).  She has some pieces that might work well for some of these:

Florist


Bard (if that ends up being chosen)


These might actually have been used for other games, I'm sort of unclear on exactly what these are from.  I think they both look very Dominion-y though.

I'll include links at a later date, but all are included in the hyperlink within the quote.

As for permission... I'll leave that for others once it is decided what art will actually be used.

Here's a possibility for Prawn Shop, if it were to be renamed to something Fishy:

I'd be happy to mock some of these up if you give me the art and text!

I now favour "Travelling Players" as a new name for Storyteller.  I think it fits best with the intended theme of the card and it sort of calls back to Wandering Minstrel.

Thanks for the art Yuma!



I remember some people wanted the bottom of Mortuary changed, I'd be happy to do that.

Mountain Pass is going to need a new name now.  But is there another name that thematically ties in with Quarry, Bridge and Highway?

Uh... Brick Road? :P

Just "Road" might work.

EDIT: You could even find some art of a Roman road to fit with the expanded timeline of empires.

I'd like to have a reference to Quarry still.  Or maybe Embargo, since it is also a $2 self-trasher.

@mith Hipster Mountain Pass is too long to fit.  Otherwise, yeah, obv.

You just need to define a symbol that stands in for "hipster" so it doesn't take up as much space. I recommend:
