Falk Character Types

Page history last edited by Michael 10 years, 4 months ago

The Rules provide for a number of Characters. Some discussion of possible choices follows:


  • Adventuress: always welcome

  • Anarchist: not a good choice for this group (which, if not lawful at all times, certainly will have no truck with Radical Socialism)

  • Brownies and other Faerie: only if you absolutely must ...

  • Calculation Engineer: just don’t expect to haul a multi-ton Babbage engine everywhere.

  • Detective: Hard to drag around the world, sometimes -- perhaps too “middle class”

  • Dashing Hussars and Other Army Types: old regimental chums are always welcome, don’t ya know? Harumph!

  • Demimondaine: ooh, just what Countess Ostrowsky’s already soiled reputation needs ... fun, fun!

  • Diplomat: it’s not all striped trousers and cucumber sandwiches, you know

  • Dragon: no. Just plain no.

  • Dwarf: sure -- note that there are only male dwarves

  • Explorer: a grand choice

  • Gunslinger: ah, the colonials ...

  • Gentleman Thief: ... and other Slightly Fallen Heroes

  • Gentleman and Lady: always welcome -- all the possible quirks and Eccentricities of the British and Continental mind can be accommodated here, with room for a few Latin American and Asian oddballs, too.

  • Inventor: note that Extraordinary or Exceptional Invention is required for any of the Truly Marvelous engines and machinery of destruction.

  • Journalist: always welcome.

  • Mad Scientist: always welcome, but see Inventor

  • Mastermind: but no dastardly villains, mind you.

  • Nobleman and Woman: See Gentleman and Lady, .

  • Performer: Ah, how terrifically ... daring ... and ravishing!

  • Physician: Tch, tch, another limb carried away, Count Ostrowsky?

  • Rogue: sure you’re a cad and a bounder, bent on the ruination of your good name, fortune, and the fair sex . .. but you’re having fun at it!

  • Scientist: not so mad or necessarily bent on Invention.

  • Secret Agent: very fun. The Cheka, the Confederate Secret Service, the Prussian Secret Service, agents of the Emperor of Brazil, Montenegrin separatists, thieves of every national or industrial secret ...

  • Soldier of Fortune: always welcome.

  • Steam Engineer: good Tinkering is useful here. The hissing, clanking machinery needs tending, you know.

  • Wizard: note that Good, and only Good, Sorcery Ability is required to become a Wizard. No character, Wizard or not, may start with more than Good Sorcery.

  • Writer: always welcome. “As Major Parapthet turned towards the immense serpent, his monocle glistening in the sun, he showed little concern for his missing upper limb ...”
