The Witchfinder is Here

87 likes

The final two stretch goals completing Witchfinder General have now been unlocked!

The first of them completes the Discovery card deck for this Adventure. More Discovery cards mean more depth of play, more replayability, and more excitements to be revealed in this new Adventure, and that can only be a good thing.

 It seems that the Witchfinder General is not quite the paragon of truth and light which he purports to be, and that he too has some unseemly skeletons lurking in his closet. Of course, he is keenly interested in them remaining firmly locked inside, and when Solomon’s actions threaten to unveil the true character of the Witchfinder, well, you can imagine his reaction. That is, perhaps, why he is always accompanied by several heavily-armed soldiers…

Some of these Discovery cards also deal with Solomon’s attempts to bring the townsfolk to his side. Can he persuade them of the purity of his own mission, and why should they believe him rather than the General? Whatever Kane’s doubts, persuade them he must, as a lone fighter against a mob will struggle, no matter how true and just his cause. He cannot just fight his way through to the answer – he must use guile as well as brawn.

Hopkins himself finally comes out from behind his soldiery and reveals himself in the last of this Adventure’s stretch goals. He is not quite as bold a fellow as he claims. In fact, if he wasn’t quite so well-guarded, I might suggest he had a slice of the coward to him. Not that I’m brave enough to say that in front of his guards, you understand - but I’d think it.

Matthew Hopkins is a man of great abilities. He excels at haranguing crowds and self-aggrandisement. He is also a master of torturing those unable to fight back and dragging the innocent to the gallows. It would be fair to say he is not a nice man, and Solomon Kane takes immediately against him.

Unfortunately for Solomon, Matthew Hopkins, the self-styled Witchfinder General, is an influential man. Many do his bidding out of the very real fear that they will be the next to be denounced. Few indeed are foolish or desperate enough to cross him, let alone brave enough to stand up to him face to face and call him liar. Even so, I’m sure that you can guess one noble soul who would dare.

      @alex, hi i'm ok with you but look at the whole bottom of the cloak, it's straigth parrallel with the ground. It should already be inclined from left to right before the sword...

      PS: i hope you'll understand what i mean, it's not my natural langage ;-)

      The cape on one side also provided cover for stiletto shenanigans (aka. the ancient shiv). In movies they use the cloak in combat, don't know how realistic that is...

      @Zergeniel: The cape is worn over one shoulder and under the other shoulder, therefore the apparent different length/drop. This cape fashion freed one arm for easier fencing or at least quicker reaction. The scabbard lifts of the ground the cape which would have otherwise reached that low.

      i find the lenght or the "drop" of the cape/cloak weird behind the right leg of the general.

      Yeah, more nightmare cards is a bit unneeded though, hope there's no more of those as SGs
