Anno Geometrica Characters

A team of heroes ready for intrigue and danger in an 18th century world changed drastically by Newton’s discovery of Applied Universal Geometry. With the exception of the Geometrician, these characters can also be used in purely historical games.

Noble
This character is a member of the aristocracy, elegant and highly educated, schooled in etiquette, languages, swordsmanship and riding. A decent all-rounder, they are charming and no slouch in combat, although an easy life has left them unable to stand an awful lot of punishment.

Geometrician
A licensed practitioner of the miraculous science of Applied Universal Geometry, this character is physically fragile and won’t last long in a straight fight, but they are highly knowledgeable and have a wide array of Alterations that will come in handy in a variety of situations. They are from a wealthy merchant family, which no doubt helped in paying for their education.

Thief
This character is a wily, stealthy rogue, much better suited to sneak attacks in darkened alleyways or staying at range than to a stand-up fight. High windows and locked doors are no obstacle to them, and if they’re caught, they might be able to lie their way out of trouble. If that doesn’t work they can take to their heels!

Soldier
This character is a hardened veteran of the period’s many wars, an accurate shot and a skilled fighter at close range. A strong but silent type, just hope he never has to try and talk anyone into anything.

Rake
The seedier cousin of the noble, the rake is of good family, but a life of vice has left them with a very different set of skills, and they are now far more at home in the gin dens and bordellos of the slums than they are in the hallways of the great and the good. Like the noble, the rake isn’t particularly tough, but should be able to talk their way out of trouble. If not, then childhood fencing lessons might come in handy, especially if/when they’re caught cheating at cards!
