Aeleis Keesan, maybe a change needed

10 posts in this topic

I could be happy if Aeleis Keesan changes abit in the next book.

maybe you have noticed that there are many pistols on Aeleis Keesan model. so maybe a good idea is to make her a pistol expert instead.

better idea is eliminating skills like defensive hacking device, regeneration but keeping sensor., loosing 1 point of ph and giving her some options on pheroware tactics. iwas thinking something like...

 

movement 4-4 , cc 14,  bs 12, ph 11, wip 14, arm 2, bts 3,

special skills : sensor, fire team triad, specialist operative,stealth

2 x viral pistol , flash pulse, k1 combi, pheroware tactics : pandemonium

2x stun pistol, pulsar, breaker combi, pheroware tactics : end game ( LT option ?)

2x breaker pistol, flash pulse, k1 combi, pheroware tactics : eraser

 

so still she is squishy, really fluffy, interesting and can be useful.

I agree. They bloated her way to much. She is quite comparable to isobel mcgregor, but she comes in 5 points cheaper. 

I also think that whatever they do it wont matter, at that point level there is no shortage of 2 wound models for triads, and her being only one wound is what really makes her a subpar choice

Her main problem is inherent to Regeneration: a very expensive skill that you need to pour an order to make it work... and it'll probably fail.

I hope that somewhere in the future CB reworks Regeneration and Automedikit to make those cheaper or, maybe, give it some kind of automatic-activation like they did with the Holoproyector. By the way, this would also improve the Taqeul :P

I would love an Aelis Keesan V2 with symbiont armour, something that makes her more resiliant without depending on dice rolls. The hacking device... well, may yes, it seems a little bit circumstantial, but it's on her background, on the Viral Outbreak PDF she hacks computers...

And she regenerates from near death a couple of times. I never was so lucky  XDDDD

i fielded aeleis keesan 3 times. 3 times she got unsc. i tried 3 times to regenrate her back.

ofcourse i had never been succesful.

Regen feels overcosted and it stings Keesan hard IMO.

I agree, Regen is far too expensive to be worth the benefit. Maybe make it so that regeneration automatically activates at the end of the next players turn it would maybe be worth it. I also see literally no point in having a defensive hacking device on Keesan, if you really need a hacker you take a kameal. Just give defensive hackers the same benefit as white hacking devices and give enemies a reason to hack defensive hacker.

I've been thinking about how to improve Aelis, without changing her much, and while reading the fluff I got some idea... why not give her some Fury level? You know, to represent how she behave in the mission against Corax.

That, and a White Hacker Device, would make her cheaper (to counter the Regeneration cost) while keeping her utility (Specialist and Sersor with Will14) and fluff.
