Re: Invitation to buff and nerf the Fakirs, Auren, Giants,... Darklings.
There are multiple threads out there offering buff suggestions, i.e., the Giants. Is there an official one that they'd like us to use?

They're all official (the guy making the first post in all those threads is the publisher). I agree, it's kind of confusing - especially as, like many (thanks DocCool!) I only just discovered about these threads today.

If you go to the expansions varient forum here:
https://boardgamegeek.com/forum/1762147/terra-mystica-erweit...

The 20 threads that currently exist are all the official ones for discussing each of the 20 factions.

I really wish they'd put it all together in a geeklist.

Re: Invitation to buff and nerf the Fakirs, Auren, Giants,... Darklings.
Actually, these 20 threads are not about general balancing, but only about balancing by providing different rules for each faction regarding the bonus landscapes.

I.e. it's not an option to e.g. propose "Fakirs start with 7/5/0 power and their SH costs 4w+8c". It is an option to propose e.g. "Fakirs gain 3 power and a priest when placing their bonus landscape" (I'm making this up on the fly - only jerks will start a discussion here about this particular Fakir buff ).

Good point, Doc. I hadn't realized it wasn't explicitly stated here in this thread that this is about coming up with abilities for the landscape tiles (within a semi-strict set of limitations as put forth by the designers).

Totally agree. It's the Giants who should "gain 3 power and a priest when placing their bonus landscape"!

Seriously though, would it be possible to put these together in a geeklist, as Grant suggested?

While it sounds like a good proposal, this seems not a good place to make it as it's in a totally separated forum.

Well, GeekLists aren't really in any forum. The idea is that you post a thread in the TM and TM expansion forums linking to the geeklist.
