I was pondering what kind of card I would create if I ever had the chance to participate in a tournament that granted you the design rights ( and managed to win ). I think this is what I would create :

 

NEUTRAL

-INSERT NAME-

Bringer of the Light

COST: 3

ICONS: CAA

SUBTYPE: Independent

KEYWORDS: Willpower

TEXT:

Day. It is Day. After ( name ) comes into play, destroy all Night cards.

Disrupt : Exhaust ( name ) to cancel an Ancient Ones triggered effect.

 

Or something to this effect, now that Ancients are more accessible than ever and the ratio of Day to Night characters is way out of balance. Has anyone else mused on what their idea might be ??

Or, on a light hearted scale :

 

NEUTRAL

-INSERT NAME-

The Demonic Monkey

COST: 2

ICONS: T

SUBTYPE: Creature

TEXT:

Action : Attach ( name ) to a non Ancient One Character. Attached Character gets -2 skill and cannot trigger its effects.

Action : Pay 1 to move ( name ) to a different Character.

 

Hee Hee Hee. Cheeky Monkey !!

A Hastur card with the Attachment and Relic trait:

"Erich Zann's Violin"

Art depicts a strange violin carved from some nameless thing's bone.  For the effect?  No clue yet, haha.

Yes. Well. Haha. The variant would be ( or the imaginary second title ) :

 

NEUTRAL

-INSERT NAME-

Demonic Monkey Horde

COST: 2

ICONS: TT

SUBTYPE: Creature

TEXT:

Action : Attach ( name ) to a Location. Attached Location is considered to have a blank text box.

Action : Pay 1 to move ( name ) to a different Location.

How about: "Action: When attached character is participating at a story, kneel Erich Zann's Violin to choose a  character. Remove willpower and all [terror] icons from that character until the end of the phase."

Here's mine:

Silver Twilight [Yog-Sothoth steadfast]

* Shining Trapezohedron, "Crazy Angled Stone"

Cost 2 Support

Relic. Item.

Action: Sacrifice all non-Ancient One characters you control (minimum of 1) and sacrifice Shining Trapezohedron to search the top 7 cards of your deck for an Ancient-One character and put it into play. Then, discard the cards not put into play. If that character is still in play at the end this phase, shuffle it back into its owner's deck.

When Shining Trapezohedron leaves play, shuffle it into its owner's deck.

}:-)

My first thought was :

Attached Character gains the artist subtype. All artists in play gain ( whatever ). But there'd need to be more artists in the Hastur expansion.

I would love to see something resembling Fog from MtG.

Agency (2 cost)

Smoke Bomb

Event

Play during a story phase.

Action: No icon struggles take place until the end of the phase.

Hey AGoT DC Meta: Great idea for Erich Zann's Violin!

Smoke Bomb is also a good one.

What, no love for Shining Trapezohedron? Maybe I should make it neutral. ;)

Don't worry Danigral. No love for da monkey either. Well. Da monkey don't love you neither !! Haha.

I think the Crazy Angled Stone is kinda…. crazy ( in a good way ) and belongs attached to Yog in some way.

Another YOG card could be :

 

FUNGI FROM YUGGOTH

Odorous Mushrooms

COST: 1

TYPE: Support

SUBTYPE: Attachment

Attach Fungi from Yuggoth to a Story card. Characters committed to this Story lose all Investigation icons.

 

Of course all of these I mentioned would be Uniques.

I haven't thought about it much, but I'd like to see another card capable of destroying resources. So far, there's only 'Torch the Joint' (Agency) and 'Desertification' (Shub).

Another card I'd love to see would be similar to 'Spell-bound Shoggoth', i.e. reducing the skill of all characters in play (or maybe even only the opponent's?).

I'd put both cards in the Syndicate faction because they need all the help they can get burla

I'd like to do a Silver Twilight card of some kind, not yet sure what it would be.  Although, Syndicate would be pretty cool too.

These boards are pretty dead without COCLCG in here all the time. :P


The monkey is cool. Made me think that Hastur needs an "Organ Grinder" character.

Again, this makes me think that Shub should have a Mi-Go conspiracy. "Your Mi-Go characters committed to this story gain [T] [C] [A] [I] and fast."

Hastur

Unstable Puppeteer

Man. Theres some really good ideas folks. I like your style. One came to me last night as I was fiddling with decks and lamenting the ubiquitous Mom / Black Dog:

 

- AGENCY -

HALLOWED GROUND

Consecrated Rites

COST: 1

TYPE: Event

Choose a Story. Characters that enter play this phase may not be committed to this Story.

 

The wording would have to dead on like this to include Black Dog as well.

Loving all of these idea so far. I am going to take a crack at a Yog card.

 

-YOG-SOTHOTH-

STAR-WINDS

Heeding geometries of outer space,

COST: 4

TYPE: Event

SUBTYPE: Disaster

Each player choses a Domain they controll; then each player returns all resources attached to their other Domains to their hands.

 

Kinda weird and possibly wacky, but definately a yog card if yog were to screw with resources on a mass scale….imo. :P

- NEUTRAL-

THE VEIL IS THIN

COST: 2

Action: Put into play an Ancient one from your hand. Until the end of the phase it is considered to have a blank text box. If at the end of the phase it is still in play, put it back on top of your deck.
