Rippers Resurrected Irregular Frameworks


Ripper Street
from left to right: aristocrat, doctor, detective, soldier, guttersnipe
Based on a conversation I had yesterday on Facebook with Tavis Hill, here's some frameworks for Irregulars inspired by some of the Character Concepts in Rippers Resurrected. With these packages, I went with the concept that Irregulars are ordinary folk caught up in the supernatural, not trained monster-fighters like long-term faction members; that's why the doctor/medical professional package doesn't revolve around the Surgeon Edge and its concentration on rippertech.
