The English version is called Dismantle

Wow, I didn't expect to guess the right name.

Why does it have Empires-like art? Or maybe that was unintentional and the pillars just remind me of Empires.

The art shows a person taking away stones from an ancient building for something else.

Which is totally a thing that would happen.  A lot of European cathedrals built in medieval or Renaissance times were constructed from stones taken from Roman ruins.

Wow, they're pissing me off more and more: First they announce to wait a year before releasing Nocturne, then they make a new Promo and don't bring it to Essen, but only maek it available at tournaments which probably be 3 4p games with the same players and no expansion after Seaside again.

Planning on releasing Nocturne any time soon?

Yes, absolutely!
I hope for some German copies on BGG.

What really annoys ME is that I repeatedly told them I was up to helping translate the cards for free (ASS has taken help from fans for a while now), and now they throw out half-assed verbatim translations one year before even planning to actually produce the cards. Devil's Workshop and Dismantle could have stuck with the Workshop and the German equivalent of the Remodel family names easily, but they messed that up, sadly.

You know what's really good for promoting Dominion? Expansions!

Which is to say, desperately needing a promo and then not putting Nocturne out for a year did not make much sense to me either.

They're blaming you / RGG for not telling them about the cards in time by the way. Sounds like a great reason to wait a year.

I also think it sucks they announce the promo the day of previews. I would have waited a week after Nocturne came out for the surprise factor, or at least after previews were done.

I can't say anything about Dismantle, but Nocturne translations were done by your fellow Dominion players, in-house, for Shuffle iT.  They could have gone with Teufelswerkstatt, but they felt Giftkuche was more evocative, and I agree with them.

Which is why I would have translated it as "Teufelswerk". It's a pun.

Why not just get a spielbox copy next month? It's only ~7 in Germany and worth it even without the promo 😉

I can confirm that the English version I'm looking at (that I got a while ago for translating) has the exact card text that MrFrog assumed.

Actually, they announced they will also give it away via their Facebook and their forum somehow.

Do we have any information about when this'll be on ShiT?

I'm guessing once it actually gets released. Not sure if that'll be when it gets released in German, or English, or both, or later because Stef has other things to do.

I want to destroy a Mantle.
"Which mantle?"
Dismantle.

Planning on releasing Nocturne any time soon?
"What? Nooooooo"

Man, you are absolutely destroying it (or should I say dismantling it) with these puns

It's soo disappointing, that this card is not distributed in Essen this year. Instead Altenburger decided to make Courtier a promo 😶

Wasn't it that they accidentally neglected including it in the 2nd edition copies? If that's true, it's more of a "fix" than it is a promo. (similar to English Pathfinding, but a worse mistake)

Edit: incidentally, the perspective makes it look loke he's reading something from a piece of grey cardboard while scratching his head. I had to read that he's carrying a stone before I could see it.

No, but the cards in the German Upgrade pack (Base+Intrigue combined) didn't fit onto one printing sheet, so they had to produce one card extra and decided to give it away as a promo card.

I can see the card art becoming a 'what did I just read' meme on this site.

Wow, I just noticed that too. No matter, I am keeping my previous interpretation as cannon.

I honestly never considered it was anything other than a guy looking at the demolition plans.
