In The World Of Esfah…
Though Nature had returned to Esfah, and she had created the beast-folk to help defend the land, Death’s minions still held the upper hand. Esfah lay torn and scarred from warfare, and the Selumari and Vagha had dwindled in numbers and hope. The Amazons were murmuring secession, wanting only to be left alone. Only the war-happy Firewalkers and the savage Feral felt any desire for war.
The horrors of war ate at the hearts of the soldiers, and many abandoned the cause. They fled, seeking cover in dense, impenetrable swamps, hoping that none would find them and punish them for their cowardice.
But someone did find them, someone who saw what an opportunity these soldiers presented. It was Death, and he unleashed his powerful sorcery at the refugees, seeking to enslave them.
Now Aguarehl, the youngest child of Nature, had returned to Esfah from wherever Nature had hidden her children. He was not yet strong enough to counteract his half-sibling’s deadly magic, but Aguarehl’s fetid swamp waters caught and held the magicks of Death, weakening them.
And so, what arose from the swamps were not the slaves Death had expected, but a vile, independent race of snake- men. Striking from their mysterious homelands, the Swamp Stalkers carry the gift of watery death, seeking to increase their numbers by mutating others.
About This Race
Swamp Stalkers are the one of the latter races of Dragon Dice™. Mutating within the swamps, Swamp Stalkers are a combination of Water and Death.
Terrain Advantage: Swamp Stalkers may, when at a swampland terrain, count maneuver results as if they were save results.
Mutation: During your Initial Effects phase, if you have at least one Swamp Stalker unit in an army at a terrain and have at least one dead Swamp Stalker unit in the DUA then you may attempt to mutate. Target up to 3 health-worth of units in an opponent’s reserve area, which must generate a save result or be killed. For those that are killed return up to that many health-worth of Swamp Stalker units from your DUA to the mutating army, promote a number of Swamp Stalker units equal to the health killed or a combination of both.
