Characters in the 6 player game:
Ned Nickerley – Gentleman rogue.
An intelligent man of the world, Ned dresses solely but smartly in black and always seems to have money to spend or, if not money, then assorted valuables such as men’s pocket watches or ladies earrings.
Hubert Saggingsails – Jolly innkeeper.
Cap’n Hubert dresses and talks like the eye-patched, wooden-eared pirate he used to be before he decided to settle down on dry land.
Alfie Broadbum – Talkative coach driver.
The chatty Alfie wears tatty clothes and is constantly searching for more newspapers to push inside them as weatherproofing.
Miss Amelia Ravenblood – Bride to be.
Dressed to attract men, Amelia only has one requirement; that her men be perpendicular, male and still breathing.
Doris Thumplightly – Frumpy chaperone.
Bundled up in layers of clothing and covered in a cape, the ferocious Doris is a young ladies bodyguard and organiser.
Lady Panthea Katt – A refined woman.
With puffed sleeves, flowing dresses and plaited tresses, Lady Panthea Katt is somewhat out of place at the Highwayman’s Halt.
Additional characters in the 8 player game:
Mr Zackary Falsegoldsmith – New money businessman.
Zackary is a commoner posing as new middle class, a bread and dripping eater with very deep pockets.
Mrs Abbatissa Falsegoldsmith – Ideas above her station wife.
Fiercely protective of her new place in society, Abbatissa has developed a very fine accent, wears lots of fake jewellery including a tiara, and carries an enormous handbag.
Additional characters in the 10 player game:
Capt Quentin Ramrod – Stiff upper lip, upper class military type.
A smart, be-medalled soldier, Ramrod is ever ready to take command in a crisis.
Dolores Saggingsails – Fierce tavern wench.
Dolores, the pirate-talking tavern wench, possibly illegally wed to Hubert, wears a fashion eye-patch even though it isn’t needed and shares his obsession with extracting money from paying guests.
Additional characters in the 12 player game:
Daft Sam– General helper at the Highwayman’s Halt.
With straw in his hair and holes in his clothes, Sam comes across as a bit dense but actually has hidden depths, evidenced by his copious note-taking.
Becky Pinchpenny – General maid.
A typical short-change expert serving wench with an eye for loose gold coins, Becky is quiet but observant, especially where unattended coins are concerned.
