#1

Looking at the archetypes and factions, I’m thinking a journalist / something, probably tagging along with the Smithsonian Expedition, simply on the basis that they’re the sort of people likely to want a printing press. Alternatively, I could be tied to Vanguard, following the long tradition of frontier towns and the booster press.


#2

A Chain Ganger, probably Gunslinger/Outlaw.


#3

Drifter (Gambler)/Soldier (Gunslinger). cough Doc Holiday Cough


#4

I’m tempted to go Soldier-Enforcer/Engineer with Vanguard. Mainly for the costume choices. But partly because I haven’t played that sort of character in a while (and last time I did was for a single game).

Also keen on scholar, as always. And I’d love to go Carnival of wonders, but that would give me serious 33AR nostalgia…


#5

I’m wondering if the Saloon will be run by a player or an NPC. Because I can see how “saloon-owner” is an easy way to get into all sorts of trouble…


#6

I was intending to play a journalist, but a Chain Gang drifter is also pretty tempting.


#7

I’m considering Gunsmith/Ranger, but Inventor/something is also intriguing. Sort of depends if I can be bothered sorting out a long rifle weapon, and pistol sure would be less work!


#8

A member of the Vanguard Consortium, a Physician / something (probably gunslinger). Doctor Izael Stevenson.


#9

He first thing that came to mind was a war vet. So that’s soldier Enforcer or gunslinger. Maybe outlaw.

Tossing up being part of the chain gang because vets often fall on hard times and get into trouble.


#10

I’m leaning towards Smithsonian Scholar (job) Gambler (hobby) at the moment, but it’s VERY early


#11

Lots of cool options!
Will ruminate for a while - especially as I may not get to every game.


#12

I’m thinking gunslinger/Outlaw applies best to the concept I have, but I’ll wait to see how things work mechanically first :slight_smile:


#13

Some possibilities (both within the Carnival)

Fortune teller (Charlatan/Apothecary)
Snake Charmer (Troubadour/Researcher/Apothecary)


#14

I’m thinking war vet too. Maybe ex-French Foreign Legion, as there’s a lot of potential there.

Edit to add: And the French Foreign Legion had the most comfortable looking trousers:

Though I think I like this aesthetic more:

…but you know, in blood and bone colours. Because Vanguard.


#15

Some kind of crazy Inventor/researcher
Probably with the Carnival or the Smithsonian


#16

I was thinking Carnival, Charlatan and Scholar, Bearded Lady Fortune Teller and Student of the Occult!
