To The Last Man
Originally posted on my blog here:

So A Touch of Evil started off with eight characters and a single board...but has now blown up into 24 characters and three makes it pretty easy to never really play with some of the characters, especially since we tend to use random draws for our characters, so tonight we went with new variant:

- Everyone draws a random hero.
- If that hero is KOed, they are assumed to be killed.
- The Shadow Tracker moves 1 step closer to darkness.
- Roll d6 and discard Investigation, Allies and/or Items as normal.
- During the Mystery Phase, bring a new Hero into play. The Investigation, Items and Allies are given to the new Hero for taking up the fight for Shadowbrook.

We actually tried to play with this variant, but the three characters we drew (Heinrich Cartwright, Harlow Morgan and Eliza the Witch Hunter) actually stayed alive until the Showdown with The Sunken Seven, when Harlow's death pushed the Shadow Tracker to 0.

Still, seems like a promising variant for those times in which we are lamenting not using all the heroes.

RE: To The Last Man
I like it and will definitely try it. It would be good to put more characters into play. We always choose at random - and you're right, the drawback there is some characters randomly see very little action.
