Ok, so this is a multiplayer, thematic deck to explore having Jenny Barnes fit an 'enemy management' role. I put enemy management in quotes there; for a long time in the life of the game, people have tended to divide up dealing with enemies into 'kill them' and 'evade them'. But with investigators like Silas Marsh and Rita Young, the enemy management theme came to the fore. These two can fight and evade (one might debate which they do with greater ease). But: they aren't the only investigators with that kind of competence!
Really, Jenny Barnes is long overdue a revisit, and with all the delight Riot Whistle has been giving me, I figured why not see if our favourite dilettante can play around with it and explore enemy management. I love the idea of some cultist running into Ms Barnes, thinking she's dolled up to the nines and no danger, only to find her bristling with weapons and ready to deliver a Coup de Grâce on unsuspecting enemies.
Definitely one of the risks with enemy management is getting hit a bunch if it goes wrong. With the decent combination of Leather Jacket and Lonnie Ritter (who, come on, first featured in Hour of the Huntress - what a theme win!), Jenny can look to soak damage and horror. Meanwhile, Hard Knocks definitely earns its place here: with Jenny's resource generation, spare resources can be slewed into landed attacks and evasion attempts. And Hatchet Man gives a little boost to evasion too - if the end goal for Jenny is killing things, evading a trickier enemy can set up a nice 2-damage coup or turn some of her guns into 3-health enemy solutions.
Of course, there's plenty of room for subbing cards around here. I snuck Followed in as a cutesy 'well, if I have enemies all over me...' bit of clue tech. Swift Reflexes is likewise a handy 'for when we need the rogue to have too many actions' sort of card. For a clandestine getaway, Narrow Escape is your friend. As ever, I hope you like the deck and I'd love to hear your thoughts!
