You all made some really cool stuff for the Arkham Horror-experience.
I noticed this forum a while ago and I created a lot of stuff you posted here for my own game.
There are some really cool ideas and mechanics.
Some time ago I had the idea to create Investigators and other stuff for Arkham Horror, based on the PC game Nocturne from 1999.
The game is set around a team of agents working for a secret paranormal division of a government organisation during a time period from 1927 to 1935.
Here is a link to wikipedia where the game is explained.
Maybe you get a good glimpse why I find it very fitting to the setting of Arkham Horror. Especially when you read about Act II
I created some stuff so far (but unfortunately in German).
Maybe you can help me to create some fitting Personal Stories or Mechanics to realize and finish my vision.
I will show you what the investigators should look like:
In the video game he's wielding double pistols with Laser sight, a double barrel shotgun or a tommygun, depending on the campaign you are playing. Plus the Pistol can be equipped with several kinds of Ammo (Silver bullets against Werewolves, bullets with Holy Water against Vampires or normal bullets).
He is a "lone wolf", ice-cold and serious in the game.
Svetlana Lupescu (a "Dhampir"): Close-combat with wrist-blades
Scat Dazzle: Having an powerful Ally that can save him from death
Elspeth "Doc" Holliday: A scientist with experimental weapon
For the bad guys I thougt of adding more vampires and werewolves to the monster cup. Maybe also some more undead.
So I could realize Act I and II from the game. In Act III and IV there are mostly human enemies. So this wouldn't fit to the Arkham Horror setting.
For the Great Old Ones there would be:
Count Voicu: A Vampire King (Mechanics could mostly be copied from Avi's Dracula)
Gardath (The Underground God): Awakened when mine workers broke the seal that imprisoned him, raising undead corpses from their graves
I would be happy if you can give me some feedback about my ideas.
Thank you for your efforts.
