Needed card titles
« on: May 07, 2013, 10:02:19 pm »

Since we already have Pawn, Knight, Bishop, and King('s Court), we need a Queen and a Castle.

The nobility has King, Princess, Duke/Duchess, Count, Margrave (equivalent to Marquis), Baron, Knights, and generic Nobles, so all we need is a Lord (to govern a Feodum) and possibly an Emperor.

Craftsmen don't have an order, but we have a Woodcutter, Coppersmith, Ironworks, Forge, Armory, and Ironmonger.  We still need a Mason and either a Goldsmith or a Jeweler, and we're a bit heavy on ironmongery.

Thanks primarily to Prosperity, the monetary trades are already covered.  We have a Counting House, a Mint, a Bank with a Moneylender to issue a Loan, a Venture for your investments, and a Trading Post with a Trader to change your money.  I don't see anything missing.

I don't think we'll see a 'Castle' card because of how the majority of the cards in the Base set are parts of a castle, and it would make the game make even less sense thematically.

What I think we'll see a lot more of are the Craftsman type cards, to go along with the Guilds theme and possibly more Banking cards like in the last section to go along with the Saved Coin mechanic.

You missed Jester, which we also have and fits one of your themes, at least.

I'd love a card named Rook.

I think Arch is right in that we'll have more occupational cards, and especially something with mason in it (or Bricklayer?).  We need someone who is doing the remodeling/rebuilding.

Every self-respecting court needs a Seneschal, of course. I don't see how we've gotten along without one for this long.

I think the Craftsmen are in need of a Leatherworker or Tannery, and perhaps a Tailor.

Agriculture is currently pretty undifferentiated, compared to the Craftsmen. We have Farmland... I think that pretty much covers everything on its own, although we have Vineyard and Gardens in addition. There might be room for something specific to Livestock, and like a Barn maybe.

Our wretched hive of scum and villainy currently has Thieves, Cutpurses, Spies, Goons, Marauders, Swindlers, Saboteurs, Counterfeiters, and Robin Hood himself. We're missing miscreants related to treachery, like Traitor, Turncoat, Bribery, Blackmail, or Informer.

Our stable of magic uses includes three types of Witches, Golem, Oracle, Mystic, Familiar, and Apprentice. Male magic-users such as Wizard and Sorcerer are under-represented, as are court-aligned roles like Court Magician and Auspex or Augur.

Clearly DXV is sexist against his own gender. A penis-apologist, if you will.

NEED MOAR CHESS PUNS!

Nick and I have talked about playing a chess-themed kingdom with those four cards. We though about using Fortress for Rook (Bishop+Fortress/Rook would be sort of a combo in both games) but couldn't come up with much for Queen.

A Marshall might be appropriate for keeping your Militias in order (reveal cards until reveal an Attack?).

Siege Engines are conspicuously absent.

I'd love a card named Rook.

Sounds like a thematic cursegiver. I guess we have rooks (or near enough) on Curses and Ill-Gotten Gains.

Conspirator?

Well, we have Princess. But that isn't very helpful here, is it?

I'm surprise we have no Executioner yet (snif, I just remembered Isotropic's Torturer picture, which is another evil-doer missing from the list). Also, law-enforcement seems misrepresented. No Guards in the castle?

Pawns and Knights fit that in one way or another.

I want a Dragon, though I guess that will have to wait for the Dominion: Fantasy expansion coming out next spring.

Don't confuse gender with genitalia.

Contextually, they are the same in this instance. I'm using gender to refer to biological sex, not feminine/masculine traits.

Actually, it was based on the gender of some words (specifically Wizard and Sorcerer) which is related to the social perception of gender and has nothing to do with biology. People identified as femenine would undoubtedly prefer to be referred to as "Sorceress" even if their genitalia is traditionally associated with males.

Anyway, we are digressing hard, I just like to be the "political correctness nazi" because I don't know enough grammar.

God, I wish I could unsubscribe from just this thread.

There's the UNNOTIFY button in the bottom right corner for that...

I'm interested to see the name of the victory card in Guilds. It seems like DXV was running out of ideas for names of lands when he used Feodum (just stealing one from another language).

I dunno, "feodum" goes all the way back to basic Dominion: "In all directions lie fiefs, freeholds, and feodums."

Parish might make the most sense, as frequently that was the area of control for a guild.

Neither fief nor freehold has been used yet, so are still viable options.
