Faction Profile for the Avalon Hill Dune board game
As the Harkonnen you play The Baron Vladimir Harkonnen. Your heroes are Feyd Rautha, Beast Rabban, Piter DeVries, Captain Nefud and Umman Kudu.
The Harkonnen start with a decent sum of money, a large contingent of troops already on Dune and control of Carthag.
The Harkonnens excel in Treachery, and have the following advantages:
- When choosing traitors, rather than picking one of the four face-down Heroes, the Harkonnens get all of them.
- The Harkonnens may hold 8 Treachery Cards instead of 4. Additionally, every time they successfully bid for a Treachery Card they get one additional one for free - which the Atreides don't get to see.
- Every time you win a battle against an opponent, you may randomly select one of your opponent's heroes to either murder, or use as your own.
