While we're on spelling corrections, 'Sommer' on Student.

And a little question...

What were your thoughts on this adding 3 Provinces specifically? In 2-4 player games the Provinces can all be split evenly, but here in 2 and 4 player they can't be. Certainly the first player to get 6 in 2 players seems at a huge advantage if there's no alt VP.
Just that this could read 'add an extra Province to the Supply per player' if you were only aiming to make more time for things like Duke.

I guess one extra Province per player solves the problem of splits. In fact, I seem to recall somebody already mentioned the split problem, but this solution seems nice and easy. I changed it. Dito for Student.

ThetaSigma, one question: You do mean the original Season template when saying "the other", right?
Is there something specific you prefer about it? My point is that the comperative degree of colorization between banner and text area seems inverse to normal Dominion, making it look alien. But perhaps there's something good about the old scheme you see that I forgot or am missing? I just wouldn't want to keep it only for nostalgia, either. And I mean probably it's not that great for you to have to create a new template if you wanna stay up to date, but I think it's clear I'll gladly share mine if you like. Maybe it won't live up to your standards, though.

The original template (Pink, the one Co0kiel0rd uses) is the one I like better than the one you are currently using (Magenta).

Mainly I really don't like the text box, it does not mesh with the border and is too light. I also prefer the pinkish color, Magenta seems to gaudy and dark.

If you have a fan card you want to be created, just post about it here! I'd love to take a look at it.

Okay, thanks for answering. The text box is in fact a bit darker than the standard one, I think(?). So, if you mean "light" in that sense, then yes, it's lighter than the one before, but I feel it's quite dark already. Going further I fear the texts to become less readable. It's less strongly tinted than the old one, too, but I prefer that, as it seems more in line with the official cards (not like Gardens' middle was pure green either). Maybe I could ramp up the tint a tad, though, so there's more contrast against the text? Lastly, I guess you can prefer pink over magenta, but that's not really objective, and personally I find magenta more pleasing to the eye.

Well, instead of ramping up the text box you could decrease the border color. That would work too. Right now the 2 are just too far apart.

I guess I could. To some degree I think it's an optical illusion, though. I didn't have the text box color transition into the normal tone as you usually should for a card, so I think the tint might seem weaker than it is. I sincerely think the colors work together very well, though.

I don't know whether Spellcasters are something people even care about, but I decided to get Glory back to 9$ and cut Mage as well as Shaman. Sorceress is now Wizard (I had cut Wizard before but just liked the name so much) while Conjurer is Sorcerer now. Wizard also lost the buy and costs 5$ again. What can I say, it's tricky stuff.

I like the idea of the spells and keep intending to try them out, but the game is already complicated enough for the people I play with IRL, so I've been hesitating to introduce the mechanic to them, and I have no one else to try out the spellcaster cards with. Maybe sometime I'll try them out on TTS with someone here. Then again, trying to play on TTS at all is complicated in itself.

I'll probably introduce Seasons to my IRL group first. I still haven't done that yet.
