with art from our in house artist of death, David Hammond, and bearing a distinct likeness of the PT designer, my best friend, Laura Scott, Nicole is full of tricks.
For the old school players, the idea is that she is a third Sumner sister, after the Classic Rachael and Jewel.
Nicole offer 2 influence at 5 cost / 1 upkeep, like Dr. Dawn Edwards. But Nicole has a shiny silver bullet over Dawn's brass.
Also, like Dawn, Nicole can transform into a dangerous terror.
Once Nicole transgresses, in for a penny, in for a pound - she sacrifices the influence that controls locations or keeps you in the game for a hefty +3 bullets in order to get some right proper killin' done.
You can take advantage of this and have an innocent looking 0 stud call out a dude on their turf, transforming once the call out is accepted. Or participate in a Kidnappin'.
And, if/when you win lowball, you can calm her fiery nature and reclaim your ability to exert control over deeds.
(and she is an 8 of spades, stud, with upkeep - a magical combination for Dead Man's Hand decks)
