Faction Profile for the Avalon Hill Dune board game.

The Emperor:
As the Emperor you play Shaddam IV. Your heroes are Count Fenring, Captain Aramsham, Burseg, Caid and Bashar.

The Emperor starts with a huge sum of money, no troops already on Dune, and no controlled territory.

The Emperor has great wealth, and has the following advantages:

  • Whenever any player successfully bids for a Treachery Card and wins, he/she pays you the spice.
  • The Emperor has 5 elite units (Sardaukar) which are twice as powerful as all other military units unless the Sardaukar are fighting against Fedaykin and then they are treated as normal units.
