With the coming of the Rent, many Venetians have succumbed to the various maladies of the mind. Fro these poor people, the doctors of Ospedale San Servolo, are there to attend them. Rumors abound though that the screams of the patients are not the delusions of the madmen, but the cries of anguish as the doctors perform unspeakable experiments in the name of Science.
Who they are: The Doctors are the magical faction of Carnevale. Many of the Doctors have the Mage special abilities, or equipment that act similarly.
This is balanced by the fact that these Doctors have very low Willpower (most of a Willpower of 2) but they are able to use the Willpower of the madmen as a magical battery of sorts.In addition, the Doctors can act as a secondary monster faction, swapping out the magical doctors for the Doctor of Zoology and the various creations the Doctors have experimented on.
How they play: The Doctors have several playstyles based on which leader you pick. You can go heavily magical, with a lot of madmen to bolster their abilities, heavy monster with the animals, or a balanced approach.
Sample Lists: The two following lists are legal 100 ducat lists:
List 1: (Using the Doctor’s Starter box and the Beast Tamer’s box)
Doctors of the Arsenal
This is a nice mixed asset list. The Madmen are there to support the two doctors, along with the Gorilla (note the wings, it flies) and the Lion can clear out the opposition, with the Warden to protect one of the Doctors.
List 2: (Using the Monstrous Menagerie box and the Beast Tamer’s box)
Doctor of Zoology
Doctor of the Beasts
This is just a classic monster list, throwing in all the creatures into the list.
