Revenge of Dominion Picture Trivia

Hello, and welcome back to Dominion Picture Trivia, for the fifth and final installment.  I hope you have had a restful two years.

As some of you may remember, in this game, the names of exactly two Dominion cards, events, or landmarks are entered into Google Image Search, and an image is chosen from among the front page (ish) results. You then work backwards from the images to figure out what the original pairs of cards were.

In this round, each pair includes the name of exactly one card, event, or landmark from the newest expansion, Empires.  No name is used twice.

Additionally, each image has been made beautiful by having a filter applied to it on PRISMA, an amazing app which takes ordinary photographs and turns them into Dominion card art.

Can you work backwards from the images to figure out all twelve pairs of names?  There's maybe some tough ones in there.

EDIT: As they are solved, a list of solvers.

I'm definitely not going to be figuring out most of these. While I'm first, I will solve


6. Warrior Arena


Will edit if I get more...



EDIT: I know nothing about Star Trek, but I googled "Black Guy in Star Trek" leading me to:

10.Engineer Forge

3: Lighthouse/City?

12 might have Library from the books, and 10 could be Forge, isn't his name La Forge?

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.

I was on that track too, and I just managed to crack the other word.

3. Settlers Port

I feel like the filter is making things more difficult - it probably would've been more clear with the original image.

EDIT:
12 might have Library from the books


Again, was thinking that as well, and again, couldn't get the second word for a while because of the image quality. But now, after realizing that those books are not on a shelf, I think the full pair is 12. Library Donate

#1 could be Bridge/Crown.

I'm trying to figure out #4. Maybe Stonemason, Dungeon, or Tunnel?

Nice call on 1. I was thinking along the same lines for 4 with Dungeon/Tunnel, but I couldn't come up with the Empires card. Rocks and Delve don't seem quite right...

I have guesses for all except #11, but not very confident in most of them...

1- Crown , Replace

2- Port , Fortune

3- Settlers , Trade Route

4- Dungeon , Conquest

5- Duke , Wall

6- Training , Arena

7- Salt the Earth , Mine

8- Tomb , Duchess

9- Gladiator , Ball

10- Forge , Engineer

11- I have no idea.

12- Archive , Library

Edit: I'm thinking xyz123 is right on #5.

Every pair has a card from Empires in it, so while you may have gotten 1 of the words right, it's definitely not the final answer yet.

And since this thread just got revived, I'm pretty dang sure my answer for #6 is correct. Could I get a re-check on that ome?

pacovf has a neopets account.  It has 999 hours logged.  All his neopets are named "Jessica".  I guess that must be his ex.

I mean, I found this on like line 8 of google image searching "warrior arena", and this is 2 months after the challenge was first posted. I don't know, I feel like it's a valid alternative answer, but it's up to you obviously.

The team is the Warriors, not the Warrior.  There's a Warrior Arena in Boston, which is what Google returns for "Warrior Arena" searches.  There's a better answer out there.  (Also, keep in mind that all 24 card names in every solution are distinct, so there's that.)

Goddamnit, I'm from the bay area too. Wow, that was obvious. If it's not clear, I'm very upset with myself for not getting that in like 4 months.
