comment How Can I Re-Skin the Hacker in A Medieval Game of Leverage?
The hacker uses his skills and knowledge to provide the tokens of authenticity that enable others - letters of writ, signet rings, official seals, heraldic devices, etc.. He also makes devices that amplify the group's power - within the limits of credulity technology-wise. I would call him a tinker, myself.
