Okay.

So if you could have one card in your entire deck to start with, a particular action that only you had, what would it be. This concept does exist in dominion but you donít start with the concept. Hence (prizes) from tournament. I after all came up with 6 roles. Is there a role that would be cool to be in dominion with a cool ability. And without replacing an official card, the ability can be similar or the same as a pre existing card. After all itís cost will be debt tokens. And donít forget to add a setup: the setup alone will make it not look exactly the same as a pre existing card. And you can add an additional starting card that goes with the role. Just like my farmer has a farm to start with. Roles can have access to any expansion even alchemy just donít forget to add to the setup that those choosing this role donít need a potion to choose this role. And of course you can add to the setup replacing one additional starting copper with another potion is fine too.

If ever got a chance to win that contest I was going to choose coming up with new cards with potion in its cost. Oh well doesnít look like thatís going to happen.

Who knows I may create my own role for alchemy. That can only be chosen when thereís potion in the supply.

So I realize dominion roles isnít for most avid dominion players, but like I said roles donít need to be in every game, itís just available if someone wants to play with them. Isnít there a thread thatís all about really bad card ideas, if they are so bad why is it one of the longest threads. Obviously everyone loves replying about bad cards.

So I guess roles can be put into that category.

I don't think anybody was saying these were bad. As far as I could tell, Chappy7 was simply saying that they weren't for him.

For sure.  The fact that things like this exist in countless games must mean that tons of people like this. So it could definitely be a good idea. The reason I play Dominion, however, is not to have variable player powers, but to be on an even playing field.  This even playing field, imo, elevates dominion over other deck builders which have a rotating row of things to buy.  So no, it is not for me.  But yes, I think it could be implemented well in a way that many people enjoy

Of course nothing wrong with even playing field. But once in a while itís nice to change things up.

So if you guys want. Post your own role.

I personally was thinking of creating a Star Trek version of dominion. Especially since the dominion tried to take over the alpha quadrant.

With some of the starfleet crew as roles. Oh and quark!

Gold pressed Latium as an additional treasure, moons as a new victory point card. The Vorta, Klingons, the founders, the jemhedar, the different ranks of the federation, the Vulcans, the andorians, the ferengi, the cardasians, the bajorans, ect. As the action cards.

Iím just kidding of course lol. Thereís a Star Trek Catan but not a Star Trek dominion. Lol

You might be interested to hear that the author of Dominion was approached about the idea to make a licensed version of his game, and said no. The license he mentioned was not Star Trek, but Star Wars, but from what I read I assumed it was the general idea of licensed Dominion that didn't convince him.

I did not know that, but I wouldnít of done it either Star Wars isnít as cool as Star Trek anyway. Maybe if Star Wars had a tv series with real people in it, then it would be. The Star Trek series has at least 1000 episodes. And thereís more Star Trek movies than Star Wars movies even.

But that figures they want Star Wars in every game franchise. (Probably cause they canít hope to match Star Trek) the only game Iíve seen with Star Trek is in catan. There seem to be a bunch of marvel games and Star Wars games in table top games.
