New Playbook - The Traveler
« on: April 04, 2020, 01:30:57 AM »
Courtesy of a very kind soul on Reddit who translated this from a Brazilian edition of MotW (original thread here - https://www.reddit.com/r/monsteroftheweek/comments/ftjsb8/english_translation_of_the_traveler_playbook_from/ ), here's a new playbook that is essentially The Doctor from Doctor Who.

Enjoy "The Traveler"!

I find it a little intimidating as a Keeper but extremely well-done.

I like it! there's a few ways you go spin this as a character.

As a Keeper I am wary as it could be used to prevent a crime at the start of the mission, thus massively short circuiting your session.

I think it would well with a themed limitation on the travel, like it has to be in increments of 88 years or you can only visit each place/time 5 times.

I can't really see what you mean here. Yes, it allows the hunters to jump back in time to earlier in the monster's career, but you will still need to do everything to investigate and defeat it.

In fact, I quite like the idea of doing all the investigation in the "present" and then jumping back in time to solve the problem before it happens (and thus save more people!)
