Exploring the Design Space

In this blog I'll share some ideas about how a board game can be expanded. My main interest at this moment is Eldritch Horror, but this may change in the future.

Dexter Drake

Action: Choose Glamour, Incantation, or Ritual. Then gain 1 Spell that has the chosen trait. Then discard 1 Spell.

Passive: When you pass a Lore test while resolving a Spell effect, add 2 successes to that test result.

Starting possessions: Ritual Candles Asset, Secret Page Asset

Design Notes:
I didn't want to have Dexter start with a specific spell. For a while I toyed with an idea to have him start with any Spell he wants. In the end, he got a random Spell through Secret Page. He has the tools to turn it in to a Spell he needs.
I'm most proud of the passive ability. It doesn't help him to pass the

test, but when he does he gets a better additional effect.
