This deck is part of a new series I'll be publishing: The Independent Faux Seekers Series.
The basic idea is that you might want to give yourself some extra challenge and play a game without any seekers (currently by far the strongest faction). The goal is to provide decks that accomplish two goals:
- Allow a significant amount of clue finding
- Allow the investigator to mostly take care of himself or herself
The second point means that these decks could be played solo or as an efficient part of a pair-play. Typically, it is most efficient for investigators to split up because otherwise you have to invest a lot of moves in each of you visiting all the locations.
Jim has more flexibility than any other investigator [except Roland] because he can viably do normal investigation or investigate through Rite of Seeking. Given that flexibility, it makes sense to offer different decks based on whom he is partnering with. This deck assumes he is partnering with "Ashcan" Pete, which means Dr. Milan Christopher is off the table, as is Dark Horse and Fire Axe. It is better to let Pete have those and have Jim adapt his deck around it.
This deck comes with 2 Moonlight Rituals to allow removal of doom from Alyssa Graham, Arcane Initiate, or Blood Pact. It has one Lone Wolf, 2x Emergency Cache, and 1x Forbidden Knowledge to address Jim's crappy economy. Note that Forbidden Knowledge is a great way to get rid of Arcane Initiate and get some resources.
Things you can do with xp:
Next, consider Jewel of Aureolus, which can help Jim's economy. Once you have this, you can consider paying 1xp to sub out 1 Lone Wolf for an additional Leo De Luca. You can also include Relic Hunter, which allows you to have either 2x Holy Rosary or Holy Rosary + Jewel of Aureolus out at one time.
