The landsraad are a faction for Dune. You may replace the emperor in a 4-6 player game or use them as an additional faction in a 7-10 player game.

The rules presented here differ greatly from those found in general magazine.


Traits

CHOAM Directorship

Whenever the Emperor wins a bidding card or whenever the guild ships troops or whenever the bene tleilax revive dead leaders, you get 50% of the spice they pay rounded down. The rest goes to the spice bank.

Also whenever you claim CHOAM charity you gain 3 spice instead of 2. However whenever another faction claims CHOAM charity they take 1 spice from the bank and 1 spice from you if able. If not able then they take 2 from the bank. Meaning the bene gesserit will be taking 1 spice from you per turn if they choose to take CHOAM charity each turn.


Speaker Of The Landsraad

After every even round's (2,4,6 etc) spice blow round you may force a nexus round even if no Shai - Hullud was drawn.


Deny Access*

You may play a karama card to place a block token within a stronghold. You cannot target a stronghold containing your own troops.
No troops may move in or out (inlcudes shipping) of that stronghold unless a faction pays you 4 spice to remove the block token. Block tokens have no effect on Smuggler faction however. If oyu move troops in or out then you must remove the block token.

A Diplomatic Resolution

If at the end of the game, no faction has won via stronghold victory and the fremen and their allies have not won via liets plan then if each stronghold location on the map is controlled by a different faction, you win the game and so does the guild. Any alliance members you have do not share your victory and neither does the guilds allies.

Pay Your Respects

Whenever a faction attempts to bribe another faction who isnt the fremen or the smugglers then they must offer you a bribe of 1 spice. If they refuse to pay you the bribe or cant pay you then at your discretion you decide if the bribe is allowed or not. Whenever you bribe another faction or they bribe you then there is no offering to you required.

Alliance Of Stars

Once per round and at the start of the round you may select 1 alliance ability from the following factions to use this turn, harkonnen, atreides, guild, bene tleilax or ixian. You may only select from factions currently in the game and you do this at the start of the round. You may select a different alliance ability each round. You may use that alliance ability as if you were allied with that faction this round even if you arent allied.

Landsraad setup

20 landsraad troops in reserve
10 spice
1 treachery
1 traitor

Alliance ability

Whilst allied with the Landsraad whichever alliance ability the landsraad chose at the start of the round, you also gain that alliance ability through them.

Also whenever you claim CHOAM charity you take 1 spice from the bank and 2 spice from the landsraad faction instead of 1.

Archduke ecaz is the landsraad general, he is strength 8 instead of 10 and if playing with strength 8 leaders he is strength 7.
