What would a "Donald X." Dominion card do?

That one is easy.

I was the original Knights randomizer card. Sir X. So, trash the top card of each other player's deck, and then something else moderately exciting, depending on the Knight.

I love that you're not even paraphrasing. That is pretty close to the exact wording on the original Sir X card.

Looking at those outtake sheets, I notice the original VP symbol is a crown, which seems entirely appropriate.
Was it changed to a shield because the colour of a crown is too close to the colour of a coin?
How did you choose the shield?
Were any other symbols considered?
What is the design on the shield (it looks like 4 playing card clubs in a cross to me)?
Does it bother you that it breaks the heraldic rule of tincture?

I picked the crown, I liked the crown. I don't know why it was changed to a shield. A crown is better. If they considered other symbols they did not tell me about it.

I don't have any more information on the shield; I don't know what that's supposed to be. I don't know anything about heraldry; I have tried to get anachronisms fixed when I've spotted them. I don't even see the shield except when testing campaigns or something online; the prototype has crowns.

Does that sort of "executive meddling" bother you, or are you happy to leave design decisions to publishers?
Do you get more of a say in things now that you are a well-known creator of a smash hit game?

Can you give any examples of anachronisms that you fixed?
Any that made it into the final game?

The Poor House depicted in the artwork is definitely not contemporary with Knights and Wandering Minstrels.

I will make any decisions they let me; I like everything the way I like it. How much I'm bothered depends on how badly they blow it; possibly they improve on something, that would be ideal. I wouldn't say I get more say now in general. It varies a lot from company to company. These days I have a lot of say on how things go at RGG; that doesn't mean they're going to send me all of the art sketches though, that's just more work.

The padlock on Philosopher's Stone is an example of an anachronism in the game. There was a gun on an Adventures card that I got taken out.

Don't padlocks date back to the Roman Empire era?

Yeah, but they didn't look like that, I don't think. The one in PStone looks pretty much like a modern padlock with the hole in the top for the lock to push into. I think that style is modern.

Yes, but my minimal research suggested that the style of padlock on Philosopher's Stone was post-medieval.

The thing is, if I had any actual information then I would have to say, dude, any new products will be announced by RGG when they want to announce them. That's not my department; it's not up to me; I care more about RGG being pleased with those announcements than I do about you, petegeo, being pleased with them.

If I don't have any actual information then I have to say the same thing, or people can just keep asking if something is coming until I stop saying no.

Yeah I always hate it in movies when after someone says "I don't know", someone responds with  "you tell me if you did?" I mean, how can you answer that? If you say "no", then how can they believe your original "I don't know"?

Have you even read the fan card creation guide? This card should appropriately cost $0, or $1 at best, compare with Moat. I mean, duh.

Mr. Vaccarino, I assume Temporum will be released in Germany as well. Do you know when? I can't wait to play it!
