Ash Wednesday - Sam and the Half-Deadite Quality

Evil Dead: Regeneration was a what-if video game released for PC, Playstation 2, and Xbox. Instead of being sucked through the portal back in time at the end of Evil Dead 2, Ash is arrested and placed into Sunny Meadows, an asylum. Of course, things never go well for Ash and the the head of the asylum begins experimenting with the Necronomicon.

The game was a lot of fun. One of my favorite characters is Ash's sidekick Sam, a half-deadite little person voiced by Sam Raimi's brother Ted.  He's a trash-talking ex-criminal that can never be permanently killed.

Name: Sam

Dodge                 13          -             Defense action

Half-Deadite (8 Point Quality)

Half-Deadites are Dr. Reinheart's attempt to use the Necronomicon to raise someone from the dead without having them possessed by a Kandarian demon. Sam was Reinheart's only successful experiment. However, the world (and multiverse) is full of all sorts of serious wackjobs, so surely someone else has succeeded.

Half-Deadites get the following traits from this quality:
  • +3 Strength, +2 Dexterity, +2 Constitution, and +1 Will
  • Natural Armor 2
  • Damage is regenerated at a rate of 1 Life Points per Constitution point every hour.
  • Attractiveness -6
  • Half-Deadites need only spend 1 Drama Point to use Back From The Dead.
  • The Half-Deadite may buy up to ten levels of Hard to Kill
