Flavor Text


"The truth of reason tempers even the wildest delusions. I will not fall prey to such madness."


Ever since she laid eyes upon that painting, Amanda Sharpe has been hearing voices in her head and seeing emerald cities deep beneath the ocean in her dreams. Once a student at Arkham's Miskatonic University, Amanda Sharpe opted to take some time away from school, hoping that the strange voices and visions would subside. Unfortunately, they have been getting worse, not better, and hardly a day goes by that she does not suffer from her unusual visions. Something terrible is coming, she is sure of it. The sea wakes.

Team Role

Amanda has a high Observation, and her starting Task allows her to gain Clues very quickly. As such, she's useful for dealing with powerful Rumors, or Mysteries that require the spending of Clues.

It is very easy for Amanda to gain Talents. She may, if she chooses, discard these Talents for straight improvements to skills, which can help her fill any gaps the rest of the team may be missing.
