Minor correction: the goblin king's name is Jareth, not Jared:

It is very common, when making homage minis like this, to not plagiarize both the likeness AND the name. Just like with Sine Tempora, the bonus characters were homage to Space Balls, all without using the direct name of the actual Spaceballs characters.

Aha - that makes sense. Thank you for the explanation.

The Harlequin to me is the most thematic and matches the game we already have on the way, especially with Carnival, masks and all.

Even though I voted for Bowie, the Harlequin does seem to be a great choice.

Being an amateur magician myself, I'm curious to see how the Harlequin would go about using those playing cards he's flourishing with!

Also wondering what kind of skills he would have...

Can't wait to see the results of this poll!

It's all good by me either way, not really a bad choice with either one on the list!

Are any of the other three going to be recruitable? Or are they strictly bad guys?
