Asylum
« on: January 28, 2009, 01:26:12 AM »
I'm very seriously considering making a character similar to the Analyst prestige class.  And I was wondering giving its focus on mental illness, if it'd be possible to make a PC employed at the Zarcroft Asylum, or at least one granted access to study and research there.

Also, I know there's more than one asylum listed in Ravenloft to exist, anyone have info on the others?

Quite possible to be employed by the Zarcrofts.

Here's a link about Canon Asylums from the FoS forums: http://www.fraternityofshadows.com/forum/viewtopic.php?p=100209#100209

I think there is a niche at the Asylum just waiting to be siezed.  Anytime the guards send someone to the asylum, if you're handy with the character, it could make for some very interesting scenes.  Maybe Zarcroft would apprentice the character, and also be summoned to the citadel now and then, if the guards have someone they're considering sending to the asylum.

I had a character attempt to get a job there once, but the DM seemed disinterested oocly. But hey, maybe it's a good time to try again.  :D

Being an ex-inmate, I can say a PC assistant would add a lot to it. Watching them perhaps squirm or even sink into the (evils) there on the OOC side would have been awesome.

having had two characters there in my time since it came around and having a pc to interact with there would be very nice to progress things too

IRL I work as a counselor at a mental health clinic so I'm really looking forward to fleshing this out, should be fun and I really like Icono's idea about working in conjunction with the guards

Me and Heretic already did a little something, but I'd be interested to see whatever you had in mind
