Clan Eshin Assassin


So here's a few weeks work on the Skaven Assassin. Also some preliminary work on a new settlement type for Skaven warriors (the under-empire), new economy and treasures.

Formatting is very rough, and probably won't get everything tidied up until the work is done. Hasn't been proof-read, tested or even spell-checked (found a dozen errors just by previewing now), but open to suggestions and comments.

There were some liberties with the fluff given the relatively small amount of stuff known about Skaven society and Clan Eshin in particular, so hopefully this doesn't offend others who like Skaven emoticon

Work is planned for a Plague Monk (Clan Pestilens), Warlock Engineer (Clan Skyre), Packmaster (Clan Moulder) and perhaps a Warlord (Clan Mors).

Hello, Ehstevey,

Your work on this skaven Warrior is very interesting to me. I really like it so far.

I know it is not finished yet, but I have one question: What treasures and equipment can this Warrior use? I mean besides those things he starts with and can obtain through his random tables. The "Skaven and Treasure" section does not yet seem to make clear what the Skaven can use.

By the way, I am moving this topic to the Warriors forum (sub-forum?), since that is for all Warrior-specific topics, including custom Warriors.

Well due to their stature and the fluff in general (of Eshin); armour and shields are both out (unless there is a special class toughness booster much like the Wizard's Staff or Elf Armour). This however would probably come under Warpstone Treasure, which itself should always read 'Skaven Only'. Though I may add some more rules about any caster being able to use Warpstone Treasure Tokens (which will be detailed in the Grey Seer rules).

For weapons, anything which is a dagger or knife would be useable, along with throwing stars and slings. I am *considering* swords and bows, but may put in a roll to see if it is properly sized for them (much like the Brewmaster or Ogre) but that said they don't have any abilities which I think would render them insane with these additions without the roll. All Skaven may use Warpstone Treasures, which are still being worked on (this being any treasure made of, or can be bought via warpstones such as those at the bottom of the document).

Work is also planned on a new set of Traveling Hazards for all-Skaven parties rather than traveling overland.

Work is also planned on a bunch of new poisons for the Eshin Assassin, which will hopefully increase him combat threat (given his relatively low early-game stats) much like how a Brewmaster begins each dungeon with random units of each brew.

EDIT: Poison will be changed to Assassinate and the dodge skill will be added to bring it into line with the Skaven assassin monster entry at some point.

Sounds like you have a good grasp of your project. I wish you success, and I look forward to the complete rules.
