It might be fun to add special abilities to the characters. Here are some I hope do not affect the balance of the game too much:

Nurse: Healing Touch. On a roll of 2 or 3, revive one lost survivor without expending a Medkit. Limit one attempt per turn.

Doctor: Medical Know-how: After succeeding at an Event in a town, roll a die. On a roll of 2 or 3, scrounge together a Medkit. Limit one attempt per town. Not available in Center City.

Hunter: Woodsman: On a roll of 2 or 3, gain a food resource in any non-town, non-Raider, non-asset space containing any amount of trees. Limit one attempt per turn.

Soldier: Tac Ops: Re-roll a failed Attack response roll. Limit one re-roll per turn.

Farmer: Land Sense: Re-roll a movement roll of '1' if desired. Limit one re-roll per turn.

Engineer: Brain Power: When in any town, after collecting assets, roll a die. On a roll of 2 or 3, gain an additional Bonus card. Limit once per town. Not available in Center City.

Police: Protect and Serve: When called upon to lose survivors, roll a die. Protect that number (minus 1) of survivors from loss. Limit one attempt per turn. (Examples: A roll of three equals two survivors protected, a roll of one means no survivors protected.)

Cleric: Bringing in the sheep: When gaining a Survivor, roll a die. On a roll of 2 or 3, add one survivor.

I'm hoping the Raiders expansion will include special abilities for survivors.

Me too. I heard an interview on a prepper podcast where they said it was definitely something they want to do.
