Aristeia!: Legendary Bahadurs Expansion
Bald ist sie da, die letzte Erweiterung der Season 1 von Aristeia!, die legendären, die einzigartigen Bahadurs.
Corvus Belli presents Legendary Bahadurs (LB), a new expansion for its game Aristeia!, which will expand the options available to players and the versatility of the games with four new characters, each one with a new playstyle and spectacular skills that won’t leave anyone wanting.
With this expansion, there is a common line that bonds the new aristos. All of them have been Bahadurs —Aristeia! champions— in the past. They’re the old heroes of the HexaDome, and return to prove they’re still the best.
The famous commentator of Vissiorama and five-time Bahadur, Final Boss, has decided to return to the competition by gathering a team of old companions. Shona Carano, an remarkable swordswoman; Koorie Queen, the very first Bahadur; and Oberon, a support geist.

It needs to be said that it was Shona Carano who converted Aristeia! in what it is today. Before Aristeia!, there was Yajuveda and a fighting program where the synthetics fought to the death. Shona snuck onto the program with her sword and began to fight, leaving no one alive. That changed everything, the audience dramatically increased and humans were finally allowed to fight in the program. That would be the seed of Aristeia!. She became a legend, but she didn’t have the chance to win the title of Bahadur. Now, that’s her only goal.
In the game, Shona Carano is a close combat specialist and her tactics include free actions.
Koorie Queen is an indisputable interplanetary music star, though her career actually began with her participation in the most extreme reality sport on Maya. Though hailing from PanOceania, she was born on Earth, and she knew that her voice would take her far but she refused to let it to be the only attribute that defined her. She appeared on several television programs and trained hard, learning combat techniques. Finally, she signed on for the most exciting sports show in the Human Sphere: Aristeia! She has the honor of being the first Bahadur in the history of the program.
Koorie is a specialist in hunting and harassing support characters. Gains the Hidden state in defense.
Final Boss is the living legend of Aristeia! He’s the one who can claim the most records in the HexaDome. It’s been the star commentator for Aristeia! for many years, and one of the presenters of Vissiorama. He has returned to the competition to show the spectators and newbies who is the real Bahadur.

On the board, Final Boss has a very complete profile. He’s an off-tank with good defense and ability to attack at close range. In addition, he imposes Stunned, Blinded, and -2 to movement.
Oberon is a geist, a sophisticated personal compact wrist computer that allows a continuous link to Maya and the local data network. In the thirteenth season of Aristeia!, hackers made their appearance in Vissiorama’s show. Worried that they could use their access to the system on their own profile, Vissiorama entrusted the company Aigletech to create a supportive body geist to control the cyberwarriors. Although, it later proved that Oberon’s services weren’t needed anymore. The last Oberon remained in the Final Boss team, which made him achieve the title of Bahadur in group mode. Now he’s back, updated and ready to win.
Oberon is a support character that works with the player’s card deck and imposes the new Silenced State. With him, it will be very difficult not to have the card you want in your hands.
With this new expansion a new state is added to the game:
• Silenced: The Character that suffers this State cannot execute or activate the Effects of the Action or Automatic Skill that the opponent has selected when imposing the State. Attacks and Move Action aren’t affected.
The updated rules can already be found on the wiki.
For Jesús „V“ Fuster, coordinator and developer of Aristeia!, this expansion has taken advantage of the opportunity to make genuine characters that were already in the background, like Carano or Koorie. „They aren’t simply an ornament, they were where there for a reason and we saw the chance to breathe life into them.“ In addition, he added that it allowed them to tilt towards DPS. „Except for Oberon, the others are DPS, each in one with their own style: short in Shona, medium in FB and long on Koorie”. He also thinks it was the perfect occasion to recover the use of Stunned. In fact, in this expansion „completes the Nomadic synergy: hEXx3r, 8-Ball, Laxmee, and Final Boss“.
As every Aristeia! expansion, Legendary Bahadurs includes the four pre-assembled high-quality plastic miniatures —Corvus Belli seal—, 4 Character cards, 4 Initiative cards, 16 Tactical cards and 3 cards explaining the new rules and the markers you’ll need in order to play this expansion. A total of 96 cards in each box, including a copy in the players’ language: Spanish, English, German and French.
Legendary Bahadurs (LB) will be available pre-purchase at SPIEL Essen (Stand 6L 109) with an RRP of €29.95.
