I am not happy with the name, as Dominion mnemonic suggests that such a card should trash a card and gain another one related in value to the trashed card.

Otherwise I would think that in some boards we'd have a Dame Josephine of ruins that no one wants, such as Library in a kingdom where splitters are scarce.

Is that a comment on this post?
New Looter suggestion...
Restore (Action Attack Looter, Costs 5): Each other player gains a Ruins. Gain an un-ruined card corresponding to one of them. (The card you gain may come from the supply or the box).

And then of course the corresponding Ruin:
Underfunded Restoration: Each player (including you) gains a Ruins.

I agree that Restore is not a good name there; like you say it sounds like it should be in the remodel/rebuild/remake and also not an attack-y sort of card.
The idea behind the card was to make a real link between the 'good' cards and the 'ruined' versions we're all coming up with. Restoring a ruin to its original state.

Maybe we could have:
Restore (Action-Looter, Costs 3): Trash a Ruins from your hand. Gain the un-ruined version of it.

And the corresponding Ruin:
Underfunded Restoration: Trash a Ruins from your hand. Gain a Ruins.

Now Restore kind of fits the remodel/rebuild/remake family (except that it cares about name instead of cost).

That's perfect. For posterity, you should add the card text that qualifies Restore as Looter.

I also had an RBCI sub-thread about cards that were in between a Ruins and the original card, and were priced accordingly.  Tourist Attractions, semi-functional cards that sort of do things, but are mostly just for show.  Maybe that would be a separate thread though.

How about:
Ruining Traveller: (Action-Ruins-Traveller) You may trash a card from your hand to gain a Ruins. When you discard this from play, you may exchange it for the next Ruins.

Not to be confused with:
Travelling Ruin: (Action-Ruins) Pass this card to the hand of the player on your left.

Ruined Experiment: +1 Card. Return this to the supply. // When you gain this, gain another ruin.

This is actually a bit of a minigame.  If you can play an Attack-Looter after you return this, the player to your left gets stuck with an extra Ruin.  And if you somehow manage to play a bunch of of these, then they stack...

This would be pretty bad if it weren't going to be drawn with other Ruins a lot of the time...
