I like to be male for role play purposes, but the arkham games have some of the most boring generic male characters ever, which is ironic cuz usually female characters feel slapped on.
So ill probably end up begrudgingly playing Roland, or giving up and being female. The only male characters I'd want to play as are Dexter Drake or maybe Finn Edwards. I just feel like there are 7 different "white guys with guns".

I choose Agnes because I love playing a spell caster.

I don't know about all of the investigators, but I have always liked the name Daisy.

Maybe not enough info on how they play mechanically in this game, but these characters have all been around for a long time. We can pick just based on their fluff and previous representations.

I feel like out of the five investigators they picked for the core set Agnes and Wendy have the strongest stories based on their board game representations. I picked Agnes because she seems to visit Dreamland which is awesome, in her real life she is a waitress which is an great contrast, she remembers her past life as a witch and can do blood magic.

My favorite investigator is Ashcan Pete. I hope they get around to adapting him for this game and make a Duke ally card. Also with his strong spell casting and sneaking skills Harvey Walters felt like such a strong character. He is exceptionally sane for an Arkham Horror investigator.

Mechanically there isn't enough information to make a real choice yet, but I've always been partial to Wendy Adams. Starting with an Elder Sign in Arkham Horror is amazing, and it's always fun when she gets her hands on a tommy gun or something...

Ashcan Pete and Dexter Drake are on the top of my wanted list!

Do we know yet how they will be adding investigators to the game? Will it be just in the deluxe boxes. Will they release an investigator each pack?

We know what classes the characters belong to. We know almost all of the guardian and survivor cards. We know almost all of the actual game mechanics. I wouldn't say "way too little info."

Well, Roland Banks' card makes him look kinda transsexual to me, so it might be a good compromise.


The smaller nose, the pouty lips, the fashionista pointed hair in front of the ears, the heavy eye makeup, the trendy heavy brows, the overly large trench, the collar pull, the come-hither stare. Dude is rockin' the in-style for 2016 and beyond.

Little Wendy Adams is good fun in Eldritch (especially her ability to elude monsters).

What are your guesses for the secondary classes of those investigators ?

So far we know :
- Roland = Guardian + Seeker
- Wendy = Survivor + Rogue
- Skids = Rogue + ???
- Daisy = Seeker + ???
- Agnes = Mystic + ???

We can postulate that :
- each class will appear only once as secondary
- there will be no doubled combination (for exemple A + B and B + A)

As a librarian Daisy is not likely to have combat or rogue skill but she may have learnt spell from books.
Skids can't be survivor since the combination Rogue/Survivor already exists with Wendy. I just can't see a criminal knowing magic.
That leaves me with the following guess :
- Skids = Rogue + Guardian
- Daisy = Seeker + Mystic
- Agnes = Mystic + Survivor

I'm not sure yet. Wendy or Daisy probably. My fave character has always been Lily Chen or Kate Wintrop and neither have appeared yet.

Roland's action economy makes him the most appealing to me.

Argh. This is Eldritch Horror all over again. Going from a huge library of investigators in Arkham Horror back down to a paltry few.

You do realize it's an LCG right? That means constant new characters to play as.
