Jack'O comes to Twisted!
As you may be aware in the last update we launched our lovely new webstore and Jack'O, our Halloween Urkin.
Jack'O is a unique Urkin, much like Ratcatcha and Shrike, a Character who bolsters the Dickensians ranks with some much needed firepower. In general the Dickensians are weak in ranged combat (with the exception of Dodger and Bill's awesome, if short ranged gun) and jack'O serves to fill that gap somewhat.
His Sewer Scourers are short ranged but if you can close the gap with your opponent, making use of his "Lurk" Ability you can unleash great torrents of gunfire upon them using Dual Fire or blast heavily armoured foes with fire that bypasses armour or sickening toxic ooze that weakens them and leaves them open to attack.
His Disturbing Ability makes engaging him in Close Combat a little more problematic than normal but a skilled foe can still take advantage of his less than stellar Close Combat Characteristics to seriously discomfort the young lad.
Guard also makes him a slightly more rugged opponent when things get up close and personal but in general Jack'O is best kept out of harms way - making use of his ranged and template attacks to weaken and damage those that oppose him.
Hi Ranged Attack Characteristic of 5 is actually really good whilst many of his other statistics are fairly normal for an Urkin. This means he can Dual Fire at Short Range and still be at +1 on his d20 to hit!
Care should be taken to keep Jack'O away from the likes of Launcelot's Sword or the Gentlefolk Gamekeeper's shotgun, both of which can make rather a mess of the young fellow in fairly short order! His lowish armour and relatively low Life means that under sustained attack he likely won't last terribly long.
All in all though Jack'O is a useful addition to the Dickensian's ranks and for a mere 23 points can cause all sorts of havoc if used carefully.
Now available for download is Jack'O's Character update sheet which you can print out and pop in your rulebook. This is the first of these sheets which will be published with every new Character we release. They will be available as a single file that we will add to as the range grows. They will also be available as single page downloads for your convenience.
Remember Jack'O is now available in resin on our online store and will be available in metal at a later date.
I hope this update was interesting to you and I look forward to hearing more about your games of Twisted in the near future!
