Any further Roles you want to see?

Post by Phantomdoodler » Thu Dec 29, 2016 12:09 pm

The Archetypes allow for pretty much any type of character, but are there any other iconic roles people would want in LWAG?
Personally I may work on the following:

Assassin of Rhem
Eruan Pathfinder
Ogron Mercenary
Patar Redeemer
Monk of the Sword
Shadakine Wytch
Cener Druid of Ruel
Sharnazim Warrior
Kundi Mystic
Shianti Wizard
Toranese Archer
Acolyte of Vashna
Bhanarian Zhakka
Masbate Warrior

Interesting roles! A Shianti Wizard could be very interesting, but maybe with too much power?

What also about:

1) Ishir Priest
2) Nadziran Warlock
3) Imperial Soldier of Chai

Kundi Mystic and Shianti Wizard, both. I can't help that I'm just as big a fan of Grey Star as Lone Wolf!

Yes i thought about a priest of ishir but I think Devout would handle that pretty well. There are no special order of priests in the cannon, like say a D&D style cleric. Imperial soldier, if its just a soldier would probably be covered by the Soldier archetype unless they possess any special abilities (not read the later books in the series). i was thinking of basing the Shianti Wizard on the Lonewolf Mulitplayer Gamebook version of the Magician of Dessi, which pretty much replicated Grey Star's abilities. Powerful certainly, but with the problem that the Shadakine empire wants to exterminate you so it comes with plenty of problems. Would make for interesting stories though...

Chai soldiers could have some special armour and weapon qualities. But besides that they could be created with the Soldier archetype.

It's true that you can create Roles from Archetypes, but in this way you could create ALL of the LWAG classes!
If Ishir Priest could be a Devout or Chai Imperial Soldier could be a Soldier, so also the Sommerlund or Durenor Knights could be Soldier.
The "Role" is a very particular Class with original capacities: the real goal could be to find what is different for the role one want to see in the game, in my opinion.

Hiyas, fellow enthusiasts!


In my humble opinion, whilst perousing some of the "archetypes/vocations's" wishlist, I believe some of them can't be published, due to the fact that the LWAG is geared towards more "heroic/goodly" PCs.

Remember that Bad guys can have Roles as well. And whats wrong with someone playing a reformed Cener Druid? Also some gms may want to run a bad guy campaign so i think there are numerous reasons why they should be published.

I dont see the focus of the game going in that direction, like I said.

It all depends on what the line developers are shootin for, pardner!

However, for an evol campaing I would sho vote for Giaks, drakkirim, szalls and their ilk!

How about Ragadorn Spy?

You would report either to a handler, or directly to a king or other noble in the Lastlands, or else become an independent information peddler. With various disguises (szall, beggar, minstrel, sailor, soldier) you would infiltrate the capitals and courts of other kingdoms, or even sneak into the Darklands, and collect vital information.

A Ragadorn Spy's success on a mission will depend on being able to successfully collect and recite by memory important facts, and of course return home undetected. Spies could work alone or as part of a network.

Things could get interesting if the player's spy character is captured... avoiding torture, imprisonment or worse may require selling out.
