Northern Isles Roles (Game 11)

Recommended Posts

Adventurer

Nationality: Avernum

Attributes: Archer, Warrior

 

Inherent: +1 base skill. Additional +2 skill when attacking a faction leader (Anama Priest, Gladwell, or Darkside Commander). Receive a 60 coin reward if you kill a faction leader.

 

Ability: None.

 

Tasks: Bonus Explore. May explore one location for free each day.

 

Victory: Do three of the following:

1) Kill any faction leader

2) Hold any two artifacts at the end of the game

3) Kill any merchant AND hold at least 80 coins

4) Join a faction and have its leader win

5) Explore at least one-third (rounded up) of explored locations

 

Aimee

Nationality: Avernum

Attributes: Mage

 

Inherent: Base skill +5. You are part spirit and part living. As such, you may not attack and anyone who attacks you only wins if they have offensive skill that falls within a range of your defensive skill. Otherwise, they lose. Should someone succeed in killing you in a direct attack (no item or status usage), they will win so long as they survive. The range of skills to kill starts out as requiring the match to be exact (the range is zero, so the skills must match +/- zero), but is equal to the number of days that have elapsed minus the number of healing potions you have consumed (e.g. if it is day 3 and you have consumed one potion, the persons skill must match within 1). If examined, that person will learn your role.

 

Abilities: Inflict confused status upon any target.

 

Tasks: Extend Power. You can give, by mutual agreement, some of your power. The recipient gains an 'Augmented' attribute. The person gets skill +2 so long as Aimee is alive and may not attack Aimee. Aimee's base skill is -1 each time she extends her power. Her minimum base skill may not go below 1. Each time you extend your power, it effectively counts as drinking a healing potion.

 

Victory: Survive at the end of the game.

 

Alchemist

Nationality: Avernum

Attributes: Merchant, Weak

 

Inherent: You are a merchant and receive infinite trades with items in your shop. Items that that enter your shop via trades are automatically converted to coins. You begin with two random potions of value 10 in your shop. At the beginning of each day, you receive herbs from any explored land you are harvesting. If you explore land, you will automatically begin harvesting herbs there.

 

Abilities: Brew potions. May convert any herbs you have into potions. Number of herbs required is the nominal value of the potion divided by 10, except for the resurrection balm which requires 8 herbs to produce.

 

Tasks: Harvest Land. Target an explored location. You will receive a given number of herbs for that day and any subsequent days. A list of herbs received for a given location on a given day is given to you at the start of the game.

 

Victory: Each day, meet a threshold for the number of coins to have gained from sales. For days 1 through 5 they are: 10, 30, 60, 100, and 150. Failure to meet the requirement on a given day results in losing 20 coins from your total. If the value is negative at the start of a day, you starve. Also, if Shanker is dead, you must have the highest sales amongst all other merchants.

 

Anama Hunter

Nationality: Avernum

Attributes: Archer, Warrior

 

Inherent: While attacking someone in the Anama, your current skill level (after items, statuses, etc.) is increased by 50%, rounded down. If you kill an Anama member, you will receive a bonus of 20 coins.

 

Ability: May target one person per day. Reveals if that person is in the Anama.

Craftmaster Strine

Nationality: Avernum

Attributes: Mage, Merchant, Weak

You begin with two random objects of value 10 in your shop. At the start of each day, you receive 1 essence for each artifact you hold. Any trade where you receive an artifact does not count as a task if it otherwise would have.

 

Abilities: Make Objects. You may convert essence into any number of objects. The essence required is the value of the object divided by 10, except for the Wand of Death, which requires 10 essence to produce.

 

Tasks: Drain artifact. When holding an artifact, may take some of its energy causing it to lose much of its power (see below for modified artifact abilities) for the duration of the game. Each artifact drained grants you 4 essence upon draining.

 

Victory: Each day, meet a threshold for the number of coins to have gained from sales. For days 1 through 5 they are: 10, 30, 60, 100, and 150.

I'm trying to think of some incentive to keep people Shanker protects from simply backstabbing her and joining a faction, while reaping full rewards from her buffs.

I'm going to be reworking Shanker quite a bit. I'm not sure exactly what, but it will involve her resettling the Shanker's Tower regions.

I think that the rule about Gladwell's servants dying when Gladwell does was pretty unfair to Duck this time. I suggest that the Bound Servant be exempt from that rule. Of course, this means that some new condition needs to be added to the "Gladwell dead" win condition, so he can't win just by selling Gladwell out.

I changed it slightly. If Gladwell dies, you lose the Bound attribute, but get the Dread Curse status. If you do not touch the Holy Symbol in 24 hours, you die.

With only two darkside loyalists, it seems like dionicio's job might be too easy. in game 10, as dionicio, I only personally removed one DL myself.

Dionicio has somewhat of an easier time, but the DLs will now be harder to kill. First, I'm going to make them a bit stronger. Secondly, there is the whole business of the Loyalist Hideout that needs to be found. Finally, the DLs will now start out knowing each other, which is huge.

 

So yeah, I don't think Dionicio, up front, will be an easy role. His task will still be fairly formidable. Now, he might get lucky and quickly find the hideout and have DLs that are not that good, but that's true of any role.
