This silent giant from Yekaterinburg is incredibly strong, but not so talented with words. Really just wants to be part of a group of friends.
Summary[edit | edit source]
Ivan is a real brawler fighter with amazing Attack and Armor, but lacking Speech and Speech Defense.
Ivan can pin enemies to their position and dish out great amounts of damage. He does exceptionally well in Aggressive crews. Try to take someone with you that can take the speech hits for Ivan.
Recommended crew: go Aggressive or Devious with Molly or Earl.

Personal Campfire Story[edit | edit source]
Vow of Peace: Ivan loses 50% Attack, but gains half his Armor as Speech. Ivan's Try to Excite hit chance increases to 100%*. Gain an extra 1 Encounter if you resolve an encounter Friendly.
Upon playing the card, every other crew member will comment on Ivan's decision with predetermined reactions between giving positive support (which also gives an instant 'Likes Ivan' or upgrades 'Likes Ivan' to 'Admires Ivan' on that crew-member) through a neutral reaction to a negative reaction (which also gives that crew-member a 'Wary of Ivan' or upgrades a 'Wary of Ivan' to an 'Ivan's Opposite'). Regardless of his crew-member's reaction, Ivan decides to press on with his new, peaceful role.
The crew-member's reaction is usually pretty obvious - those who favor combat will have a negative reaction (the majority of fighters and scouts, excluding the speech-specialized ones) while most of the characters with powerful speech attacks will tend to react favourably, though some, like Maria, give a neutral reaction.
Also results in multiple events during expeditions after playing it - these can occur anytime after playing the card upon moving to a new node. They appear to be randomly selected from +1 Campaign token, +2 Encounter tokens and +4 Encounter tokens each time. The +4 Encounter tokens event will also end the story, preventing any further events from this card and giving Ivan a 'Likes (Crew-Member)' for both of his companions. This will upgrade an existing 'Likes' to 'Admires' if Ivan already Likes that Crew Member.
*Note: Ivan's bonus on his Try to Excite hit roll is currently bugged: it will work unless you give Ivan any trinkets or other items which improve his 'Try To Excite' directly: any of the Excite books available in New Orleans or the Translation Guide in Moscow will remove his bonus to-hit when they apply the increased damage.

- Wary of Ivan: +5 Speech Power. He's a bit boring, isn't he?
- Ivan's Opposite: 25% Speech Power, Gain the Archaeologist - Occult perk! Such a religious goof! I guess I'll have to dive into the occult.
