Due to the same reasoning behind Aqua's own thread for all of their created content, I decided to go ahead and follow suit. I have a large number of created Investigators and so as not to bury the Investigator thread in unnecessary content and to leave things open for critiquing where I won't have to flip through everything (that is, if anyone actually critiques) I have it all in one place.

I'm going to post them in blocks of five and will add in my comments on each one as I go along. Here at the top of the thread I"ll post the link to the full printable version for use.

I will also acknowledge that the characters used for the Investigator's art are not my own. While I did use a posing program (and subsequently for a number of them Blender and Corel) I do not actually own the models. There are definitely familiar faces that you'll see in the Investigator sheets for sure.

 

Alright, here is the first set that has both Personal Stories AND Completed sheets! Click on the list titles to be taken to the Skydrive to download the actual .eon files, and click on the individual Investigators names to view the images.

I do not comment Investigators; anyhow, I'll do an exception and comment on the last one. So, technically, you created a 3 speed character able to automatically negate every Headline appearing. Not to mention the incredible amount of damage he could create with Credit rating and  movement point generator item (Motorcycle, Rubin of R'lyeh, or similar).

One of the good things FFG investigators had, was that there was a certain balance among the special abilities and the stats. Not all characters created were equally balanced, of course, but in Locke's case the character is quite broken. You should reconsider costs and the way points are allocated among the Stats

Just my 2 cents, though

A lot better :) Thematically, he's good, and it makes worth staying in Street areas. Stats are more balanced, and the character could be interesting to play :) Last point that you could consider: since he's a minor, maybe he shouldn't be allowed to become the Deputy. This is a common house rule used for Wendy Adams (who's Minor as well). Still, even if you keep him as he is, you have a good character :)

I contemplated adding that in as an additional rule, just like with Wendy, but, as is obvious, I took several ques from her in terms of stats for Locke. I think the reason why they might have left it alone for Wendy is that cops usually make kids 'honorary' deputies usually for fun. And really, Wendy is so fast and generally bad at closing gates (at least more than one) and killing monsters on her own that most folks aren't going to have her aim for being a deputy anyway.

That's interesting! Didn't know, thanks for telling me :)

Yeah, agreed. Additionally, her special ability allowing her to auto evade monsters in street, paired up with her 5 Speed, makes the use of Patrol Wagon a little useless..

Agreed. If you need the Patty Wagon to get Wendy around town AND to avoid monsters, you are playing her very, very poorly! XD
