I’d assume anyone who shows up as “The Cavalry” in scenarios would be a good candidate. I think I’ve seen Carter, Nassir, Norma Creed, Mihas Blaga.
I’d also think that anyone who has done any investigation for you before starting the mission would be a good candidate too like Madame Roget and Deputy Andy. Henry Hawthorne could finally get called up to the “big league”. Emilia possibly.
Some that seem like they should probably can’t. Like Ricky Pagan since he is so dedicated to staying in Ginpachi Park that he loans out the Chrome Steed so he can stay.
Some that seems like they couldn’t/wouldn’t, might. Like Che Garcia Hansen. Is he loyal to Marquard post-Tokyo? Or does he “owe you one” after taking care of a rabbit problem?
Not inclined to trust Orochi agents because 1: They are working against us. 2: They have an unfortunately tendency to die, a lot. Which could be a rather memey agent, easy to acquire but dies after every mission leading to you having to re-acquire said agent.
Good point, though Lisa is an exception to the average.
Moot point anyway, as there are no multi-agent missions, at least not yet.
I could see using Orochi as cannon-fodder to increase a regular Agents survivability but I do agree with you that they couldn’t be trusted to run a mission solo.
I hadn’t thought of that… 3 variations of stat to offset where an agent might be relatively weak for the mission. You’d lose the benefit of the piece of gear, but maybe theres a way of getting around that. Orochi as an optional consumable to boost the Agents chance of succeeding … lol, or maybe an RNG risk with that as well… could help, could hurt…
I want leet agents.
Yeah, I know, not having hands might be a challenge, but I’m sure there’s something useful they could do. I’m guessing they’d have pretty low, possibly zero, Prowess, but decent Ingenuity and Adaptability.
Give them a Dexterity trait that grants them bonus shinies on successful missions. Leets love shinies and they’re little and quick. They’re also really cute, so a Charisma trait would make sense, even if no one takes anything they say seriously.
As for passive bonuses, I think the affinity for shinies might extend to their agent, improving loot drops and/or passively generating bits of various coinage as the well trained leet steals shinies and brings them to you.
