A 'Heretics of Dune' variant has been posted in the files section of the website. It is set after the Scattering during the events of Frank Herbert's excellent 'Heretics of Dune' novel.

The factions warring for Rakis are the Bene Gesserit, the Ixians, the Fish Speakers, the Bene Tleilax, the Rakian Priesthood, and the Honored Matres. New weapons, powers, and mechanics have been added. cool

Please give 'Heretics of Dune' a try! thumbsup

What Glenn said. Heretics and Chapterhouse were excellent novels that sadly Frank Herbert couldn't finish, and are deserving of a board game representation.

I ran two pbem games of HoD and it seemed interesting. We kept making some tweaks because there were some balance issues (played with no alliances). Honored Matres have some significant strengths similar to the Harkonnen (the sexual subversions are worse than your leader going traitor).

At some point in the next few months, I will likely moderate a playtest of Heretics of Dune varient. Work will be very busy until then, but I do plan to try :)
