I saw in a thread here that some people were interested in the possibility of custom expansions and/or more new characters. Here is a set of characters of my creation. (The Actor was inspired by someone's suggestion of a character who can imitate unused characters.)
(1) - Actor
After taking an action, choose a character to impersonate, then immediately end your turn. When that character is called, if no player has that character, resume your turn using that character's ability.
(2) - Warlock
Choose a character. When that character is called, the player with that character must give you his or her entire hand.
(3) - Sorcerer
For each player, you may pay that player 1 gold in order to draw a card from that player's hand.
You may reveal any number of district cards from your hand which are duplicates of districts in your city. Discard those cards to the bottom of the deck, then draw that many cards.
(4) - Advisor
You gain 1 gold for each noble (gold) district in your city.
The player with the crown token passes it to the player to his or her left.
(5) - Cardinal
You gain 1 gold for each religious (blue) district in your city.
Each other player may give you a district card from their hand in exchange for 1 gold from the bank.
(6) - Banker
You gain 1 gold for each trade (green) district in your city.
Each other player may pay you 1 gold to draw a district card from the deck.
(7) - Fortune Teller
Draw 5 district cards, then put 3 cards from your hand on the top or bottom of the deck.
(8) - Privateer
You gain 1 gold for each military (red) district in your city.
At the start of your turn, each other player may pay you 2 gold. During your turn, you may destroy one district in any player's city, unless that player paid you gold.
(9) - Civic Planner
You gain 1 gold for each special (purple) district in your city.
- The Thief/Warlock CAN target the target of the Actor. If a player has the character, you will get his/her gold/hand. If no one has the character, you get nothing, as normal for when you target a character that no one has. (You would not get to take from the Actor.)
- Another idea I had for the Cardinal was "You cannot be targeted by the Thief or Assassin (or Witch, or Warlock)." Similar to how the Bishop is protected against the Warlord (and Diplomat and Privateer).
- Disclaimer: I have not playtested these. Feel free to try them out, but know they may need some tweaking. (If you do try them out, give me feedback! I'd love to know what you think.)
