Could I request Plague Marshes (http://elementscommunity.org/forum/index.php/topic,2701.msg25885.html) (almost the exact same mechanic was implemented as Thorn Carapace) be moved here?

I could be wrong but seem to remember the shield competition coming before Zanz implemented the new shields. Certainly no-one brought the similarity up during judging.

Though checking the thread start times, it does look a little odd.

EDIT: I've checked with people on chat and they agree that the thread start time for Thorn Carapace seems wrong. It wasn't in the game that early. Can anyone else confirm/deny this?

EDIT2: I've been through the changelogs.

New cards:
- Phoenix (and Ash)
- Hope
- Fractal
- Thorn Shield (replacing carapace shield)
- Mummy
- Pharaoh (rare)
- Butterfly Effect
- Flooding
It seems the Thorn Shield thread was miraculously posted two months before the card was added. :o

I bet the reason is that the carapace shield could have been replaced by thorn shield in the same thread.

This definately looks like a Reliquary candidate.

It doesn't seem that similar to me, I could only see it being a proper candidate if zanz mentions he was inspired by it. Different name, not a shield, a death card.

agreed only the ability is vaugely similar, but there have been other cards I thought were inspired but turns out they weren't, just similar by coincidence...

You look at the other two cards here and they have very clear indicators that they are similar (voodoo doll zanz specifically posted in the topic and phoenix has same art).

Uh, it is a shield. It was designed for the shield competition. The mechanic is exactly the same as the card that was implemented. The only differences are cosmetic.

But as to whether it directly inspired Zanz, that's a question only he can answer.

kdz mentioned a few of his cards that were under similar circumstances as daxx's.  i dont recall any of them at this time, however.

i think reliquary entrants(?) should have a recognization of some sort due to inspiring an in-game card
maybe a special forum award icon?

Maybe there should be a specific board set up to showcase their ideas and how they were implemented in the game.  And each card would have a topic devoted to it.

:P
