They come to bring peace... by eliminating Proxies
Commencing Countdown, ELITE Soldiers!
The recruitment process into Project: ELITE is long and arduous, after all, only the very best soldiers make up Earth’s last defense squad. But special circumstances require special measures. Today, we’re proud to introduce you to the 2 most exotic members of Project: ELITE!
The Terran territories were not the first targets of Janusian invasion. The alien menace has enveloped and consumed over a dozen previous civilizations as its titanic fleet edged along through the galaxies. Survivors of these conquests hate the Janusians almost more than Terrans do – which is why it came as no shock when a pair of aliens arrived planetside and offered their help to Project: ELITE. Two esteemed members of the elite within the Plu’htonian royalty, Royal Envoy Apollo and Duchess Aloria, have come to Earth to help deal defeat to the Janusians – just as their people did decades ago. It might come at a price down the road, but for now, any help is good help in such a dark hour. The ELITEs need all the help they can get defending humanity, even if it comes from beyond the stars.
For $12, this new Optional Buy brings Apollo and Aloria to Project: ELITE including:
- Royal Envoy Apollo figure
- Duchess Gloria figure
- 2 hero Dashboards
- 2 Event cards
Not only do these advanced alien warriors bring their own brand of anti-Proxie Abilities to your table, but they also add unique Alien Ally Event cards to the game, showing that the Janusians remember their defeat at Plu’hto – and it really makes them mad!
Though Apollo is often seen as severe and somber in his diplomatic dealings, in the field he’s a remarkable asset, making use of Kinetic pulses and blasts to the Janusians’ dismay. Both his Abilities are triggered with Locking slots, the first stunning all Aliens in Range 1 on their sides, stopping them from activating, and the second dealing damage to Aliens within Range 2 upon a successful roll.
With her temperature-based powers, the newest member of Project: ELITE brings a very unique set of Abilities to the game. Duchess Aloria’s Cryokinesis allows her to push Aliens in any direction after killing one Alien, and her freezing aura forces all Aliens within Range 3 to move away from her upon a successful roll.
Alien Allies Events
When playing with Alien Allies players must shuffle the Alien Allies Event cards into the deck of Event cards, one per Alien Help in game, replacing regular event cards. The first of these, ‘Long Memory’, makes Janusians move towards Apollo or Aloria - which can be a benefit or a hindrance! The second, ‘Janusian Rage’ diminishes the Aliens’ chances of damaging Heroes, but deal extra damage to Apollo and Aloria when successful.
Time’s up, squad. Stand by for the next mission update!
