Much of the art in Timemaster consists of woodcut illustrations from the Dover Pictorial Archive. Given the time travel theme, this is perfectly acceptable. However, the quality of the character portraits varies to a distracting degree.
Dmitri Yurovich BoruskovBattle of Tannenberg in 1914. Finally, he participated in the Brusilov Offensive in 1916. Boruskov “retains a strong dislike for Germans in uniform and officers of any nationality.” This might be problematic during the course of the introductory adventure. Anyway, Boruskov's elective skills are Long Barreled Gun and Machine Gun. His second Paranormal Talent is Time Shift. We learn that, “Characters with this talent can 'shift' the time around them back to the beginning of the prior round.” [original emphasis]
Sarah Little-BearDemoreans to her own people's struggle against the white man; to Sarah, the two are very much alike.” Little-Bear's elective skills are 'Dagger/Knife (melee)' and Stealth. Her second Paranormal Talent is Telepathic Probe, which allows a character to “probe the mind of another character and establish that character's true identity.” We read that, “Agents often use this talent in the field to discover Demorean or renegade infiltrators.”
Konrad von Streicher(Date of Birth: November 19, 1730) When the Time Corps recruited him at age 30, von Streicher had attained the rank of captain in the forces of Frederick the Great. Von Streicher is tied with Schwarz in having the highest Luck value (50) among the trainees. Among other uses, a successful Luck roll allows a character to survive when, “according to all other rules of the game, the character should be dead.” Only player characters have Luck. Also like Schwarz, his elective skills are Long Barreled Gun and Military Leadership. Von Streicher's second Paranormal Talent is Telepathic Sending. This talent permits a character “to send a short message of no more than 10 words per round to another character” at any distance.
