Class Notes: Archetypes

-February 6th, 2013

I’ve been asked a few times whether or not Degrees of Horror will include Archetypes. Yes! We aim to please! I don’t think I’m giving away the farm by sharing that list with you here:

  • Activist
  • Actor/Performer
  • Crusader
  • Jock
  • Journalist
  • Local
  • Martial Artist
  • Occultist
  • Outdoorsman
  • Psychic
  • Scholar
  • Stranger in a Strange Land
  • Wild Child

So there you go– a baker’s dozen Archetypes to get the creative juices flowing. In the book each Archetype also has a two or three sentence description followed by starting character stats. Now that you’ve seen our list, what’s your character concept? If you were playing a freshman college student, would you start with one of the above or go with something different?

I’m sure you can think of other Archetypes we could have added, but with space always being a consideration I can’t even guarantee that these will survive the editorial process and into the printed book. If it’s a choice between cutting Archetypes or other cool parts of the book, my personal feeling is that it will be a trivial matter to make Archetypes available for download separately. In fact, I may very well use some of these as inspiration for the pre-generated characters to use with the upcoming Sorority Secret one-sheet I mentioned last week.

Got ideas for future Class Notes? Send ’em our way!
