"The visions are a warning. The future can be rewritten."

Bio

At first, Jacqueline's dreams of fire and destruction seemed like a curse. Monsters ran rampant through city streets and some greater darkness loomed on the horizon. However, she has recently learned to control her visions and observe events in detail. Yesterday, she traveled from Boston to Minneapolis to explore an abandoned warehouse she'd seen in her dreams. Inside, she found evidence of a terrible cult that had practiced unspeakable rituals there. Jacqueline hopes to use what she's learned to prevent the terrible future that haunts her sleep.

Defeated Encounters

Loss of Health

Somehow, Jacqueline knew you would be at this café to receive the parcel. Gain all of her possessions. Strangely, everyone here encountered her sometime after she was injured. You try to convince everyone to share their story (Influence). If you pass, you get the whole message Jacqueline hoped to convey; retreat Doom by 1. If you fail, the story is incomplete and makes no sense. Whether you pass or not, discard her Investigator token.

Loss of Sanity

You visit Jacqueline in the asylum and claim her belongings. Gain all of her possessions. She seems lost in her own world, talking to visions only she sees. You do your best to interpret what she's seeing based on what she says (Lore). If you pass, you have a clear idea of what she's experiencing; retreat Doom by 1. If you fail, Jacqueline remains trapped in a world only she can see. Whether you pass or not, discard her Investigator token.

Team Role

With her high starting Lore and decent Will, Jacqueline is great for casting spells of all kinds. She has a lower strength, so a lesser base for Strength to be boosted for Combat Encounters, so a player who wants to use her to fight might want to increase that first.

Her high observation and special ability allow her to funnel clues to investigators, or to retrieve them from an investigator if she's better suited for the Mystery, so an investigator like Darrell or Daisy might make a good partner for her.

Since Jacqueline may look at the back of Condition cards that are not Debt Conditions, the players can work around what might be some debilitating or deadly conditions.
