Faction Profile for the Avalon Hill Dune board game.

Atreides:
As the Atreides you play Paul Muad'Dib. Your heroes are Thufir Hawwat, Lady Jessica, Gurney Halleck, Duncan Idaho and Dr. Yueh.

The Atreides start with a decent sum of money, a large contingent of troops already on Dune and control of Arrakeen.

Paul is prescient, allowing him the following abilities:

  • You may look at each Treachery Card before bidding - thus keeping you from wasting your money, and letting you know what everyone has.
  • Before movement, you may look at the top card of the Spice Deck, letting you know where spice will next show up, and if a worm is coming.
  • You may force your oppoent to reveal one element of their battle plan (Hero used, number dialed, weapon or defense).
  • Any turn after losing at least 7 troops you may claim the Kwisatz Haderach counter which shows Paul's influence in battle - giving additional points to every battle the Atreides participate in.
