RECOMMENDATION: All 3 FANATICS I+II+III are playable separately, but we recommend to pledge for ALL of them and we will deliver the set in a common box with a transparent insert for you as a bonus. Due to some manufacturing limitations in the injection mold engineering this is the preferable way for us and for our producer too (according to their newest update).

CHALLENGER - member of the Neutral Characters Battalia Collection*

Large and very detailed miniature of a fanatics challenger, another great NPC, which offers new style of adventures... Meeting you, he will challenge you, will always try to seduce your natural born greed for success, he will play with your moral and conscience and finally he will let you no choice, but to make one very hard decision.... It's always about the same old dilemma: Victory or Defeat - and are you willing to pay the price for it?...

"Join The Order Of The Half"

Appearance: On a random ruins card (alternative - in the middle of the extended map), at the end of the first week, before first player's turn of week 2 / day 1.

Movement: Random throw with 2 dice - with the custom Battalia D4 directional die for choosing a map direction - N,E,S,W (consider N always towards ORACLE WHEEL on the table) and with one D6 for the number of his movement steps (no diagonals, but he circles the map). Stops when meets any hero and affects all heroes on the same square.

Effect: He will let you face your own strength and feel your greatest fears - he will offer you a fight against your own kind for a greater prize ... You will always have 2 choices: accept the challenge (see what happens depending on the outcome below) or reject it and then immediately mandatory sacrifice in the name of the half oracle 2 cards from your hand to the limbo.
If you accept it, you will have to fight against your own deck (your own strength and fears) ... Leave your current hand of 6 cards to the side and draw 6 new cards. Don't look at them and don't reveal them to anybody, but split them at random in two halves. Give 3 cards to a random chosen player (use a die to choose him and let him play in the name of the Challenger) and take the rest 3 cards of the additional draw. Play a short and doom battle with him, but pay attention - besides the 3 cards in your hand you can use as usual your cards in ambush or in tents, but the Challenger will ALWAYS try to apply the ancient power of the sacral duplication and clone one of the drawn units (if there is at least one unit in his hand), sacrificing simultaneously one of his 3 cards to the limbo in order to please his faith into the bloody half oracle.... 

The outcome of this duel (practically with a part of your own deck) has following after effects - inevitable in a first place: quicker and probably unexpected rotation of your creation deck because of the additional 6 cards draw. 

If you win this battle - your reward will be: choose to build one city level 1 on a free spot according to the building rules / upgrade one existing city by one level, if all spots on the map are already build.... 
OR alternative summon one card by your choice from the limbo (possibly return the sacrificed losses, if they were especially hard for you).

If you lose the battle - downgrade one of your cities by one level ... 
OR alternative be damned for all eternity to lose for sure your next battle with this hero (mark the hero with a burden marker - ring marker over his head - until his next participating battle).... and of course you will never be able to recover your sacrificed losses through the Challenger from the death grounds of the limbo - Mechanics design is still under development, changes and adjustments are possible!

Playable with: 2,3,4,5,6 players on a standard or extended map.

Miniature size: 49 x 60 x 32 mm

Base: 30 mm

Color: dark purple - Battalia's color for neutral miniatures.

Content: 1 x cardboard box with 1 miniature - box size approx. 52 x 62 x 35 mm

Tip: Avoid mixing it up in the same game with too many other aggressive NPCs, if you want to keep the grade of distraction from your main victory goal on a lower level and do the opposite if you're looking for more challenges.

*NCBC is a collection of mini expansions based on neutral big scale figurines, which are designed to enlarge the immersive Battalia universe, introducing a whole bunch of new strategic possibilities to the players and adding completely new adventure elements to the basically competitive plot. In general they don't belong to any faction (resp. to any player) and can be played in different combinations with the basic game or with the BIG!Expansion. We don't recommend to mix more than 3 different types of NPCs in your games in order to avoid higher complexity. But you can mix them in totally different combinations, which ensures the long-term replayability and excitement in this game universe. Normally the NPCs have small complementary rules, which are provided only online on Battalia's home page as high resolution printable PDF files. The miniatures are distributed in small packaging boxes with custom artwork as separate items or possibly in bundles.

Attention: Rules are not final, you can find them later on our homepage!
You can find all printable PDFs in English and possibly later even some language versions in our section under "COMPLEMENTARY RULES FOR EXTRA COMPONENTS", which will be continuously updated over time. At the moment we are uploading only rules, which are finally designed, tested, layouted and overall completed. Please note, that the majority of the rules for the Neutral Characters Battalia Collection (NCBC) are in different "work in progress" stages and will be finalized after this pledge manager starts. We will add them to the page as soon as they are ready. We highly appreciate your patience, thank you in advance!
