[WOTC] Pharmacist Class
Last revision: 28 Oct at 23:44 UTC
The Pharmacist is a support class tasked with healing allies and inflicting status effects on foes. They are armed with an Assault Rifle and a unique secondary weapon called the Stim Gun. The Stim Gun can be used to fire Recovery Stims at allies and Venom Stims at enemies. As one can probably guess, the Recovery Stim acts as a ranged medikit heal, while the Venom Stims are guaranteed to hit their target and inflict Poison. The per-mission charges for these abilities can be increased by equipping more medikits. Pharmacists also start with the Stimulate ability, letting them remove mental status effects from an adjacent ally once per turn. Think of them as being half way between a Specialist and a Medic, with some powerful crowd control abilities.
Unfortunately my artistic skills are lacking, so the Stim Gun model and effects are just those of the default Pistol. I know it’s a bummer, but hopefully you can enjoy this class despite that.
