New playbook for #Stonetop : the Would-Be Hero. I’m trying some new things in this one, so feedback is particularly appreciated.
EDIT: New version posted. A lot of the conversation below might not make sense if you’re just reading this now.
Here’s the gist: this is someone who has bravery and determination, but isn’t on par with the other PCs in terms of skill. But over the long run, they have the potential to become possibly the most effective/powerful character in the game.
To reflect that:
– Their stat line starts worse than usual: 15 (+1), 14 (+1), 12 (+0), 11 (+0), 8 (-1), 8 (-1). – But, they’ve got the Potential for Greatness move causes a base stat to increase (up to 16) each time they use it and roll a natural 12. (This will hopefully have the side effect of encourage the player to always be trying stuff, especially stuff they aren’t good at, because of the potential for improvement.)
– Their starting available moves are all either mostly defensive or about playing off the other PCs. But most of them get replaced with moves that are (intended to be) pretty potent & powerful.
– They’ve got the widest range of multiclass moves available to them, so they’re super flexible/customizable as they improve. My intent is that it reflects the inexperienced hero learning from everyone and everything around them.
Again, feedback is particularly welcome on this one.
