So its been a while since I’ve read the rules in the main book, and I don’t really have any of the supplements, so I’m not sure if this has already been covered by the rules somewhere else. , but I had an idea for a “Character class” or concept, basically its the “red shirt” but instead of a single character, you as a player would gain access to the available security members who are available in the scene.
As a concept I had for fantasy games, I thought it would be funny if you controlled a character, and they weren’t “heroic” like other classes, but if/when they died, you’d still be in the game because you’d have a replacement ready to fill in the ranks again because you were controlling the plucky group of endless “red shirts” into the battle.
And because this fantasy idea was based on the original joke of red shirts, I thought it would be interesting to think about how this would work in STA. So I thought, maybe instead of controlling one character, you as aplayer would just control all the security red shirts who are on the scene, maybe with some mechanic for sacrificing them to take damage for other characters.
