Den of Sin is very sexual and doesn't really fit with the theme.

I don't know, sex is often coupled (hehe) with the occult and ritual magic.  I think it works pretty well, given the context.

It works just as well as "brothel" would in that sense.
With no context, I would say those two are fairly synonymous, but within context I think the word "sin" makes "Den of Sin" more thematically appropriate than "brothel".

You said that sex is often coupled with magic. In that sense, (i.e. judging how well the name works given its sexual connotations) brothel would work equally well.
But not just any word is right for every context.  There are subtle shades to language.  When sex is coupled with the occult and ritual magic (which is subtly different from just saying "magic"), the words chosen to refer to sex usually reflect a darker side.  Den of Sin sounds better than, say, Love Nest in this context.  For that matter, so does brothel.  So lets put them on a spectrum: Den of Sin > Brothel > Love Nest.  Then you can add any number of other terms in there that have a similar meaning.  At some point on this (admittedly subjective) spectrum, the terms are going to cease being appropriate for a given context.

Guys, take it to RSP  :P

Genuine question, here.  Why would this need to be taken to RSP?  We're discussing whether the terminology on a card works within the theme of the expansion.  Or does any mention of sex have to go to that sub-forum?

As much as 50 in the current context.

Ah, but if it weren't true, then why would we need the thread entitled "What Should We Call Things" or the rumored Dominion: Terminology expansion coming out next year.

It was tongue-in-cheek. The RSP header says "Discuss these topics here, and in here only" (emphasis added), so technically you should but I don't particularly care.

Cthulu would be cool too....

I would be down with never seeing another Cthulu or Cthulu-themed thing in any board or video game for the rest of my life. Same with Zombies.

I've been a long-time fan of Cthulu-based stuff by way of being a long-time fan of Metallica, and I'll be damned if I'm going to let boardgaming's overuse of the theme ruin it for me.

Still looks exciting. I like the theme a lot.

My goal is to get at least 1 of these. Obviously they won't all follow the horror theme.

I tried hound without an adjective... My bet is that at night the hound changes into a werewolve (or has a chance to do so) and  in order to mark the difference it needs to be a really nice and faithful dog before.

I was surprised "Crypt" was an answer (the only one I
guessed at first) given that "Catacombs" is already a card.

Crypt will combo with Storyteller. The online version will play the "Tales from the crypt" theme everytime that combo is exploited.

How many expansions is this? 11 or so? And the names aren't e.g. Florbian Catacombs, just plain Catacombs. I mean. There are only so many simple names.

Florbian Catacombs would make a good promo card.

I thought the actual term of art when it came to dens where naughty people did naughty things was "den of iniquity"?

SPOILER ALERT! The next expansion will be Florbian Guilds.
