The Book of Arashara Goshiri

C3V Wave 2 - Age of Chaos - Heroes of Paizum

Printer-Friendly PDF

The figure used for this unit is a Pathfinder figure from the Beginner Box Heroes set. Its model name is Kyra, Female Human Cleric.

Character Bio: Arashara Goshiri silently watched the sun set over the endless expanse of sand. She was always at home in the desert, although this desert wasn’t her home. It was Aunstrom, the great desert of Valhalla.

Nearby, her scouting party--a band of Greek soldiers and a lovely kyrie by the name of Empress Kiova--were lighting a fire in the shelter of two small ruined walls.

The setting sun glinted off the object in her hand, catching her eye. It was the Eagle of Einar, a gift the valkyrie lord had given her shortly after summoning her from Persepolis. He had said it was an object befitting her stature, centuries old, and that it had always been calling to her.

But it was no mere artifact, not just a trophy for her to flaunt. It was more dangerous than the swords her people wielded back on earth; it was even more powerful than the mystic weapons the warriors of the 10th Regiment of Foot wielded: the "muskets," as they called them.

A deep, reverberating roar echoed above the dunes, startling Arashara and almost causing her to drop the Eagle. Pouring over the dunes like grotesque slime was an army of Utgar’s horrific orcs, led by Utgar’s right hand: Taelord, the fearsome kyrie.

Arashara didn't have to say a word; the warriors of the Sacred Band and Empress Kiova were at her side before the howl died down. They stood, ready, at the top of their dune as Utgar’s hordes swarmed forward. There were too many of them.

Arashara gave the Empress at her side a single glance, and the Kyrie nodded; she instantly took to the skies, flying back the way they had traveled the past three days, back to Lord Einar’s castle.

The Greek warriors charged, and Arashara was in their midst. The orcs were not her quarry; Taelord was. The kyrie monster landed atop a small dune to survey the battle, and that was his mistake. Arashara focused her inner thoughts, and pointed with the Eagle of Einar at Taelord.

The desert came alive. The sands spiralled and coiled and convulsed. The Greeks knew what was going on, but Utgar's army didn't. The sands did her bidding and reached up from the ground almost like a hand, grabbing Taelord, then they moved with the speed of a sandstorm to bring Taelord to her; in his place, filling the void nature abhors, a member of the Sacred Band was carried to the small dune, in the midst of the enemy army.

It was a sacrifice she had had to make, for now Taelord was at her feet.

SHIFTING SANDS
After moving and before attacking, choose two small or medium figures on land spaces within 4 clear sight spaces of Arashara Goshiri and within 4 spaces of each other. Roll the 20-sided die. If you roll a 10 or higher, you may switch the two chosen figures. Figures moved by Shifting Sands never take leaving engagement attacks. Arashara Goshiri may be moved by Shifting Sands.

-Rulings and Clarifications-
- Shifting Sands : What is a Land Tile?
Would land spaces mean a height 1 tile (rock, grass, sand, concrete, swamp, lava), and exclude height 0 tiles (water, swamp water, ice, molten lava), or is it based on the color of the tile? - ie. does not work on sand tiles?
Yes it works on all : land spaces (rock, grass, sand, snow, concrete, swamp, wall walks, asphalt, road tiles, dungeon and lava field)

- Shifting Sands : Are Moving and Placing different?
Would figures moved by Shifting Sands be affected by Engagement Strike? It says "switch" and "moved by", not "place", so I would think no.
Wrong. The designers have stated that moving and placing are synonymous basically.

- Shifting Sands : A Ladder a Land space?
One thing I wondered: is a ladder a land space?
No, because it isn't a tile.

Re: The Book of Arashara Goshiri

Would figures moved by Shifting Sands be affected by Engagement Strike? It says "switch" and "moved by", not "place", so I would think yes. Shifting Raelin or any other important small/medium figure into an engagement with three Nakitas could be dangerous, especially with the following attack of 4 greeks/romans. Although, with only 3 defense her survivability seems low for 200 points.

Just a quick note: "place" is not in any way different than "move." As to your question, I believe that the answer would be the same as it would be for Tactical Switch, so perhaps check the Book of the Warforged Soldiers.

Engagement Strike, not LEAs, Fi Skirata. And yes, AoS, they would (though as Xotli pointed out, there is no difference between "move" and "place" for the purposes of Engagement Strike).

You would have to be careful that she isn't sniped, but SS and a wall of SB/Romans is enough protection against melee, IMO. Remember, she can switch herself with, say, your Marcus to move him up and her back at the same time.

Actually, what I was pointing out was that there is no difference between "move" and "place" for any purposes whatsoever.

Re: The Book of Arashara Goshiri

Do wall walks and road tiles count as "land" spaces? It could be useful to swap a melee hero on the ground with an opponent's ranged figure in a castle.

I believe they do (They seem to fit the same qualifications as the other ones listed).

The answers to all the questions about what a "land space" is are the same as they are for Mika Connour's Blend Into Shadows.

Re: The Book of Arashara Goshiri

One thing I wondered: is a ladder a land space? I would say "no" but it isn't listed in either Mika's nor Arashara's clarifications and it would probably pop up often in games.

I just realized a very powerful use of shifting sands. Arashara can teleport her troops on the top of a castle while sending the opposing troops to the ground. Greeks finally get the castle swarming advantage they deserve! Some maps like Broken Skyline can be used this way. Send Syvarris up there replacing the opponent's figure, and suddenly you moved Syvarris 8 spaces onto the top of a castle, while sending your opponent to be surrounded by Greeks/Romans.

She is also good with lava field. On OM 3, switch your Greek on lava field with your opponent's Krav, then laugh maniacally.

I was initially very spectical of her 200 points, but I think her uses are many and easily adaptable. She's frail like Kurrok, and unlike her fellow leaders Kato and Sparty though, so use Shifting Sands wisely, and protect her!

Well, since you cannot place a tile (shadow or otherwise) on a ladder, then I would say that it would be counted as something different. Especially since Mika's power says "on any empty land space", which would make one conclude that a ladder is not a land space.
