In diesem Leben war Agnes Baker vielleicht eine einfache Kellnerin, aber in einem früheren Leben, in einer Zeit, die man in der modernen Weit nicht einmal für möglich halten würde, war sie eine mächtige Hexe. Es hatte angefangen, als sie unter den verstaubten Besitztümern ihrer Familie auf dem Dachboden dieses merkwürdige Artefakt fand - eine Art Schlüssel. Als sie ihn berührte, wurde sie auf einmal von Erinnerungen überflutet und da war dieses Wort: „Hyperborea“. Je tiefer sie in ihre Visionen und Erinnerungen an ein früheres Leben eintauchte, umso stärker wurden ihre Kräfte … und umso mehr Angst bekam sie.

Can I play with Agnes?

Give me the sense to wonder

To wonder if she’s free

Give me a sense of wonder

If they’ve picked her before me

Give me the strength to hold my hand out

And pick that youthful face

Don't need xp to unlock this deck

Gonna play through it all

Break me into that bad place

[Chorus]

Can I play with Agnes?

She’d look so cool with a crystal ball

Can I play with Agnes?

Her evasion’s rather small

Can I play with Agnes?

The players looked at me and laughed at me (ha ha) they said:

Can I play with Agnes?

Use blinding light, its fine, you`ll seeee

Woah, they said use blinding light you`ll see

I stared hard at the encounters

I said I'll Scry, I'll see whats below

We can prepare for this mischief

For two cards and the next

Oh then I fixed them with a freezing glance

You could see the fear in their eyes

I said you wanna know the truth son?

Well I’ll show you the truth

Its an agility test needing five or higher

[Chorus]

Listen to me, said the players

[Chorus]

Agnes Baker is one of the most powerful investigators out there and here's why:

  • First of all, with her 5 , she can withstand most of the treacheries requiring skill tests the encounter deck throws at her.
  • Her other stats are quite low, but the class has so many ways to hande that, that it is not really relevant in the end.

With the solved, she just needs way to mitigate her 3 other low stats. And ways there are in the class card pool, most of them Spells that can be triggered using her strongest stat .

  • Her 3 is already quite acceptable, considering you won't be using it much, except to sometimes, in an emergency, evade an enemy if you can't currently kill it or blind it.
  • Her 2 may be the most difficult stat to balance, if you're playing solo. If you're playing multiplayer, you probably want to focus Agnes on killing the damn enemies. Back to solo then. Again, cards have so many ways to mitigate that: Drawn to the Flame, Rite of Seeking, maybe use that "Look what I found!", and the neutral cards Flashlight and Perception.
  • Her 2 may be the easiest stat to balance, right off the bat with Shrivelling and later on with Shrivelling (3), Shrivelling (5) and Song of the Dead (2). What's more, all those Spells have a strong synergy with Agnes' ability, dealing even more damage to the enemies you're attacking.

Finally:

  • The ability of Agnes is very reliable, as lot of things can deal damage to Agnes: treacheries, enemy attacks, even her own Spells. She also has access to ways of mitigating the sanity hits: Fearless and Peter Sylvestre.
  • Her modifier is quite good too, for the same exact reason.

With the mulligan rule in this game, grabbing a Spell in your starting hand is not that difficult, and you still have the Arcane Initiate to help you out.

You mention Peter Sylvestre, but if you're assigning horror to him then you can't use Agnes's reaction. Am I missing something? — micahwedemeyer · 40
I imagine banania means if the Sanity hits start to get out of control. A couple is great, too many will take her out just like any other investigator. — whisp · 1
Yep, exactly — banania · 143
