New character ideas !

Recommended Posts

Granville your image of your character reminds a little of the Compleat Adventurer character created by Bob Harris for the 30th Anniversary :)

 

I like the idea of just a generic adventurer who's luck has kept him alive. I like the abilities but what do you think if he started with a Sword from the purchase deck? and perhaps to show how luck is on his side maybe he adds +1 to die rolled at the Tavern? :)

 

That's funny, that's the art I had in my head. Thanks for the notation. 

 

I just couldn't place where I saw it.

 

As for starting with a sword, sure why not. Part of the joke is the guy is supposed to have a tool for everything like pytons, bedroll, etc.

 

 

At one point I had thought of him having some kind of bonus to Place cards, making him a somewhat seasoned tourist, but I could not come up with something that is balanced.

For his Tourist'y theme perhaps you could have "When rolling a dice on a Place card, roll an additional die and choice which result you wish" - Giving hijm that well toured wisdom of places around the land? or maybe just +1 to dice rolls when visiting places or place cards

I like the roll 2 dice and choose!

 

Here we go:

 

Adventurer

 

Starting Space: Tavern

 

Alignment: Neutral

 

Strength 3

 

Craft 3

 

Life 5

 

Fate 4

 

Gold 1

 

Expert Hauler: You may carry as many Objects as you like you do not have a limit of four.

 

Seasoned Traveler: When Encountering a Place card you may roll two dice and choose the result.

 

Edge: When you lose a life, you may roll a die. On a result of 6 you do not lose a life. If an effect causes you to lose more than one life, roll a die for each.

 

 

It's perfect. He has no real edge out of the gate as opposed to MANY of the characters out there, so he starts a bit behind in the race to the crown. However slow and steady can win the race. He's a great character for new players and veteran players a like. Mid-game he does not have to worry about carry limits at all and vets will be able to potentially exploit Place cards, but the ability is not a sure-fire effect either much like the Rogue's. High Lives and Fate gives a lot of room for mistakes while being neutral allows a player to tweak their Alignment with no real penalty and both high lives and fate means either Good or Evil can work. With this guy it's even debatable which one is better leaving it up to preference.

 

Starting at the Tavern is classic flavor.

Hahaha I like him even more now, the image reminds me of Madmartigan from Willow, maybe we should give him a free water bottle, being as he can hold infinite objects and travels a lot + the scene from the movie. It also suggests he might be a drunk ;)

 

 

 

"Of all the things, why does he start with a water bottle?"

 

"He starts in the tavern and he travels a lot. Water is the essence of survival and liquor the essence of sanity."

 

With a 1 in 3 shot at taking a ferry boat to the middle region he can use his water bottle too, which has become a bit of an underused item due to better items being out there.

 

If players don't like it they can always pawn it at the city for an extra gold.

Do you have any other artwork you would be happy using for the Voodoo Mambo? Its just the artwork you put up I am having trouble getting the image cropped with a transparent background for use with Strange Eons. I will continue to try but if you do have another image it may work out better :D

 

How is this?

I like false prophet. Seems useful and rather unique. I could see that in an official expansion.

 

Voodoo mambo - first ability is waaaaaay to good. Possibly a game-breaking ability.

Can ability one and two be used hand in hand?  If you were to attain Lucky (pet) this character would basically be unstoppable....

1. Yes

2. Maybe I should add that drinking ability can only be used once per turn.

CAN YOU SEE IT?

YAY!!

 

Ah you made the bow a actual Special Ability and you said "if you do not use a weapon" thus you can still use a object- bow if you get one. I like the "use 1 fate to fire a arrow" have you thought about saying: "If you use a bow in battle you must use fate instead of gold".

 

But that will get confusing with the first bow reference

Maybe change "can use your Bow" in the first special rule to "can lose a arrow"

The last ability could then say "you may only carry 3 objects" the bow wording might confuse a lot of players.

 

I would play test it but other than that a 3 fate instead of 4 might be in order. But it might play test really well :). try it out. Good work.
