The Android[edit | edit source]
A robotic soldier with a body as hard as adamantine, and a shield for an arm charges into battle, ignoring blades and bolts like they are nothing. They slam into a spellcaster, who was confident their minions could handle anything coming through, ending a battle that should've taken hours in merely seconds.
A cyborg assassin, with blades coming out of their wrists like a beast, leaps over dozens and dozens of guards, breaking through an ornate glass window of a castle. They land in a table, during a banquet of a tyrant, and in less than a second, they have already slit the throat of their target. Guards pour inside, as the assassin leaps out of another window, his mission done in a shorter amount of time than it'd take a commoner to eat a sandwich.
A hulking behemoth of a machine steps up onto a watchtower of a prison, during a riot. It prepares itself, spinning up a gun inside of its chest, and begins mowing down prisoners left and right with ease, until the riot is completed. Hundreds of bolts are fired in a mere minute, as all who did not flee find themselves no longer among the living.
Playing an Android[edit | edit source]
As an Android, you have the potential to dish out tremendous amounts of damage; but with great power comes great responsibility. A front line fighter, most of your utility comes from your high amount of hitpoints and your ability to intentionally intercept attacks, as well as abilities that either cost HP to use or require critical health to activate. In order to make the most out of your abilities, you will have to keep a tenuous balance between staying alive, and being in the red. Needless to say, your relationship with your healer will be paramount.
