Some new characters
« on: January 15, 2010, 04:14:57 PM »
Hey guys,

I made some new characters for Strange Aeons (two new special agents and a new lurker). The lurker is obviously inspired on Samarah from The Ring. As there are no ghosts (yet ;)), I gave her the Daemon special.

The photos are to give some suggestions for suitable models.

So what do you guys think?

They look good to me.  I haven't actually played so I don't know how they'd do.  I've read the rules and understand your ideas - seem solid enough.  The character concepts are cool.  Especially the Undertaker and kids.

Cheers Mike! You can use any stuff without hassle or problems, would be an honor 8) (and of course change stuff you don't like). I have other ideas I will be working out (Hitman, Priest, Vampire, Servitors, Ghasts (maybe))

@Hitman: The PDF says it, but the undertaker is by Wyrd Games :)

Hey,

First addition to the Lurkers! I edited the original document from my first post. I've made rules for blackstone's *fantastic* Proto-Shoggoth. Let me know what you think.

Some nice ideas there, thinking about the hunter would the skill Sneaky not benefit him more then ambush as a hunter stocking his pray.
Plus we need a Hunter rifle, I like the idea of an elephant gun but these was some what dated by the hunter’s rifle out in the twenties.
But my idea for a hunter rifle would be Range 20''  Rate 1D6   Damage 1D+4  Special AP2 Ready BP ether 3 or 4

In the coming months we will be adding a few of these (with minor re-writes for balance) to the website as free rules. I love both special agents...and yes, there will be an Elephant Gun. Full marks to Mal. as always.  :D

The Proto-shoggoth profile insn't cool enough for the model i.m.h.o. I'd be more inclined to do an actual Dunwich Horror setting using that model as a 'Godling +' type model...giving it a few special abilities and skills...make it a 'super baddie' that would harass the agents over several games and would have to be driven off...I'm on it.  :)

Will need to get a Dean Stockwell model done up for this..."YOG!!!"

 lol...

Well, I kept the Proto-Shoggoth's profile not too extreme; that way you can field him more easily than at 25+ points. So far our games max out at 22 points, so the really expensive ones are a bit tricky IMO.
Can't wait to see the rules for the new stuff 8)

And another edit! I added two new agents (the Hitman and a Priest) and added a profile for a Vampire for the Lurkers. The PDF's are getting quite big with the images. I can make them smaller if you guys prefer so.
