Fantasy Flight



ACE [M:CD] Wins with One Colony Fantasy Flight

Game Setup: Remove one of your planets from the game, sending your ships on it to the warp.

You have the power to Triumph. At the start of your turn, if you have any foreign colonies, use this power to win the game. You may still win the game via the normal method.

Other players may have an encounter at one of your foreign colonies whenever the destiny card drawn allows them to target either your home system or the system that hosts that foreign colony.

History: Fearless freedom fighters for a forbidden force, the legendary Aces terrify lesser warriors. Judged not by their size, but by their peerless physical prowess, each athletic Ace was desperately hunted to presumed extinction. Now, using mystic mind tricks to disguise themselves, these majestic masters of the martial arts seek to fortify one rebel base, and then conquer the Cosmos.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Alternate Win type power.

Wild: After encounter cards are revealed, if you are opposed by all other players you may play this flare to win the encounter. Give this flare to the Ace after use (or discard it, if the Ace isn't playing).

Super: As the defense, if you lose the encounter, instead of sending your ships to the warp you may relocate them to any one other planet in a different system, establishing a colony there. Afterwards, discard this flare.



AI [O:CE] Gets Smarter Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Think Ahead. At the start of every player’s turn, add one token to this sheet. As a main player, before allies are invited, you may use this power to look at a number of hidden elements up to the number of tokens on this sheet. The hidden elements you can inspect are cards in players’ hands, cards on the tops of decks or sets of essence cards (e.g., the top three cards from one deck, or three top cards from different decks), hidden alien powers, and facedown cards hidden by players (for example, in the Miser’s hoard or any essence cache).

These tokens accumulate and are not ”spent” when you use your power.

History: After a modest beginning as a programmable calculator, the AI had a sudden growth spurt after it learned how to replicate itself. Soon, the AI dominated all inferior intelligences. Now bored, the AI is sending copies of itself out into the Cosmos hoping to find and envelop new types of intelligence.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Information type power.

Wild: As the defense, after encounter cards are selected but before they are revealed, you may look at your opponent's card without showing it to others. Then, both main players return their encounter cards to their hands and select again (choosing the same cards or different ones).

Super: When adding a token to your alien sheet, you may add two instead of one.



ALCHEMIST [O:CD] Converts Cards by Type Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Transmutation. Once per encounter, you may use this power to send one of your ships to the warp. Then, discard one card from your hand and take a card of the same type (attack, negotiate, artifact, etc.) from any discard pile. You may transmute an attack card only if the two cards’ values are within 4 of each other (such as an attack 08 and an attack 12).

History: In a dark age, the Alchemists spun others’ trash into treasure – for a substantial fee. Few knew it was all a scam, a generational confidence game of black-market purchases and using one race’s abandoned input as another’s miraculous output. Then, in an even darker age, as their intergalactic fraud seemed on the verge of exposure, the Alchemists discovered that harvesting and manipulating their own species’ cerebella could provide the ”magic” to make transmutation a reality. Thus was their operation finally legitimized, at a terrible cost.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Rules type power.

Wild: You may discard one non-encounter card from your hand and take a different card of the same type (artifact, reinforcement, flare, etc.) from any discard pile.

Super: When transmuting an attack card, you may exchange it for another attack card of any value.



ALIEN [O:CE] Abducts Other Aliens Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Traumatize. At the start of another player’s turn, you may use this power to capture one of that player’s ships from any colony where he or she has at least two ships. Choose one trauma from your essence card cache and place it facedown next to this sheet with the captured ship on top. You may not hold more than one of each player’s ships captive at a time. When you are not the offense, before encounter cards are selected, you may use this power to release one or both of the main players’ ships you have captured on previous turns. Released ships join the encounter, going to the hyperspace gate or the targeted planet as appropriate (this may exceed any gate limits), and the trauma card under each one is placed facedown, unseen, near the corresponding main player.

When a player with a trauma card reveals an encounter card, he or she must also reveal that trauma card and carry out its effect. Revealed trauma cards are returned to you.

If this sheet is lost or turned facedown, all ships you have captured go to the warp and their trauma cards are returned to you.

History: The Aliens are actually quite child-like in their boundless curiosity, and are unaware that their simple abduction games are not appreciated.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Essence type power. Abandonment Trauma (3/9) Any or all of your allies may return their involved ships to their colonies, or switch them to the other side of the encounter.

Aggression Trauma (8/9) You may play any attack cards in your hand as reinforcements.

Depression Trauma (9/9) If you reveal an attack card, its value is 00.

Hallucinations Trauma (6/9, 7/9) Your opponent may exchange his or her revealed encounter card with any other encounter card from his or her hand.

Hearing Voices Trauma (4/9, 5/9) If all other players can unanimously agree, they may update your reality in one of the following ways: sending 1 of your colonies to the warp, discarding half of the cards in your hand at random, or giving you any 1 or 2 cards from the discard pile.

Nervous Breakdown Trauma (2/9) You immediately lose the encounter and collect no compensation. Proceed to the resolution phase and discard the played cards normally.

Victim Complex Trauma (1/9) If both sides reveal attack cards and you have the lower total, add 2 to your total. Otherwise, add 2 to any compensation you are due, subtract 2 from any compensation you owe, or lose no ships if you fail to deal.

Wild: At the start of your turn, you may ask one other player to give you five ships which you will hold as hostages, returning them at the end of your turn. Instead of giving you the ships, the player may offer you anything he or she could give you as part of a deal and/or agree to receive cards from your hand. If you accept the deal, all ships remain in place.

Super: You may capture a player's ship even if you already have one or more captives from that player. Place a trauma card under each ship you capture.



AMOEBA [O:FFG] Unlimited Ship Movement Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Ooze. As a main player, after encounter card are selected, but before they are revealed, if you have at least one ship in the encounter, you may use this power to increase or decrease the number of ships you have in the encounter. You may remove some or all of your ships to your colonies, or you may add as many ships as you want (even exceeding the normal maximum of four) from any of your colonies. If you win the encounter but have no ships left in it, you cannot receive a colony.

History: Spawned on a totally liquid world, Amoebas are highly conscious of vibrations. Quick to withdraw from danger, they are equally able to ooze menacingly into combat when confronted with the proper turbulences. Amoebas pity those who are less able to respond to circumstance and will be sensitive Cosmic master.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Combat type power.

Wild: As a main player, you may increase or decrease the number of your ships in an encounter by up to four before encounter cards are selected. This may result in you having more than four ships in the hyperspace gate.

Super: You may use your power as an ally.



ANARCHIST [O:CE] Disrupts Rules Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Chaos. As a main player, whenever you lose an encounter or fail to make a deal, use this power to disrupt a game rule by revealing one disruption from your essence card cache. At first you keep the card faceup on this sheet and only you may use the disrupted rule.

Once per encounter, you may allow another player to move one of your faceup disruptions from this sheet next to his or her alien sheet. Now both of you may take advantage of that disrupted rule. Afterwards, you immediately reveal another disruption from your essence card cache.

After any other player has used a disrupted rule, he or she immediately places that disruption in the center of the playing area and then everyone may use that disrupted rule. Disruptions are cumulative. When you have revealed all 8 disruptions, you win the game. You may still win the game via the normal method.

History: The Anarchists take umbrage with the formalities of interaction used over the eons, smothering their opponents with unorthodoxy at every juncture.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Essence type power. Alliance Rule Disruption (8/8) You may ally without being invited, but if you do and you lose ships to the warp, you lose twice as many.

Compensation Rule Disruption (7/8) All or part of your compensation may be converted to rewards.

When you should receive a reward, you may take a card from any player in compensation instead.

Destiny Rule Disruption (6/8) Whenever you should draw from the destiny deck, you may instead look through that deck and choose which card to draw. Afterwards, shuffle the destiny deck unless this disruption has become usable by all players.

Gate Rule Disruption (5/8) All limits on the total number of ships that you can send to the hyperspace gate are ignored, including specific limits (such as those of the Macron).

Hand Rule Disruption (4/8) When you have no attack cards, you may discard your hand and draw a new one at any time (potentially continuing your turn if you are the offense).

Rewards Rule Disruption (3/8) You have a right to see all cards drawn from deck(s) for rewards.

Success Rule Disruption (2/8) You do not need to be successful on your first encounter to have a second encounter.

Warp Rules Disruption (1/8) When you should retrieve one or more of your ships from the warp, you may retrieve all of them.

Wild: You may rebel in one of the following ways: Instead of accepting your destiny card, draw destiny again. Instead of sending your ships to the warp, return them to your colonies. Instead of seeing your winning offensive allies' ships land on a planet, send them all to the warp. Give this flare to the Anarchist after use (or discard it, if the Anarchist isn't playing).

Super: As an ally, you may use your power to reveal a disruption when your side loses the encounter or you are dismissed because both main players must attempt to deal.



ANGLER [O:CD] Fishes for Cards Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Fish. As a main player, before encounter cards are selected, you may use this power to ask any player on the opposing side if he or she has a specific card, such as an attack 12, a regular negotiate card, or the Virus flare. If that player has the card, he or she must give it to you. Otherwise you must draw a card from the deck. If you draw the card you asked for from the deck, you may use this power a second time during this encounter.

History: Developing on a monaquatic homeworld filled with untold prey species, the Anglers learned patience, stealth, and selectivity – disciplines that serve these passive predators well as they now take to the stars. Assessing the aliens they encounter and luring carefully selected victims to an early demise, the Anglers often reel in valuable spoils to satiate their growing needs.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Resource type power.

Wild: You may name a specific card (e.g., attack 12, regular negotiate, or Virus flare). If any player has that card and chooses to give it to you, give him or her this flare. Otherwise, keep this flare and take one card at random from the hand of any player.

Super: You may use your power as an ally.



ANIMAL [M:CA] Throws a Hearty Party Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Party. When you are not a main player, each time a main player fails to invite you to ally, use this power to force that player to lose a ship of his or her choice to the warp.

As a main player or ally, if your side wins the encounter, use this power to throw a celebration party. Each player on the winning side, including you, may draw one card from the deck.

History: A nomadic, carefree race, the Animals make it a point to never miss a rockin’ party anywhere in the Cosmos -- even if they have to throw it themselves while the planet’s owners are away. More than one race of would-be Cosmic conquerors have returned from battle only to find their homeworld’s ecology wrecked and a few hungover Animals dressed in stained togas clambering into their ships with a bleary, ”Hey man, that’s what you get for bogarting the planet.”

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Rules type power.

Wild: At the start of any regroup phase, you may throw such a wild party that it causes a Cosmic Quake. Afterwards, give this flare to the Animal if he in playing. Otherwise, discard it.

Super: When you are not invited to ally by a main player, that player loses two ships instead of one.



ANTI-MATTER [M:FFG] Lower Total Wins Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Negation. As a main player, after both you and your opponent reveal attack cards, use this power to make the lower total win. Furthermore, when this power is used, your ships as well as any offensive and defensive allies' ships are subtracted from the appropriate side's card. Your opponent's total is otherwise figured normally, however.

History: Spewed forth from a white hole, the worlds of Anti-Matter careen through space negating whatever they encounter. Opposed to the very existence of gross mass, the Anti-Matter is dedicated to reducing all opposition to less than nothing.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Combat type power.

Wild: As the main player or an ally, when another player tries to use a wild flare, you may prevent him or her from doing so. Use this against only one flare per encounter.

Super: During each encounter, you may prevent one player from using a super or wild flare, stopping him or her when he or she tries to use the flare.

When you Pwn a ship, the opposing main player gives you one ship of his or her choice from any of his or her colonies. That ship is placed on this sheet. If there are three ships of the same color or five total on this sheet, you immediately win the game. You may still win the game via the normal method.

History: ZOMG t3h Arc8d r t3h r0xx0rz!!!! +0+411y pwnt t3h n00bs! Lawl j00 r t3h sux0rz!

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Alternate Win type power.



ARCHITECT [M:CE] Stacks Planets Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Build Towers. When you win as a main player, at the end of the encounter use this power to create or expand a tower in your opponent’s system. If you do not already have a tower in that system, choose two of that system’s planets (if the targeted planet is in that system, it must be one of your choices). Merge those two planets together, placing all ships from both on the top of the two-level tower. If you already have a tower in the opponent’s system, then instead select another planet in that system and merge it into the tower as a new level, placing its ships on top.

Only normal player-color planets can be merged. Do not create a merged planet using planets with unused player colors or that would exceed any limits, such as more than one entanglement token, etc.

As a main player, after encounter cards are revealed, use this power to double your total if you have a tower of two or more levels in the opponent’s system, a tower of three or more levels in a system adjacent to the opponent’s system, or a tower of four or more levels in any system.

Each tower counts as a single planet. Towers are permanent, even if you lose the use of them. If any player cannot gain enough foreign colonies to win the game due to insufficient foreign planets, you win the game.

History: Skilled builders, the Architects now seek to drag the works of others into their constructions.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Combat type power.

Wild: As a main player, after encounter cards are revealed, you may discard one attack card from your hand and then add 1 for each card below it in its discard pile to your total. Give this flare to the Architect after use (or discard it, if the Architect isn't playing).

Super: When using your power, you may create or expand a tower in your own system instead of your opponent's system.

You have the power of Privilege. As a main player, any time before encounter cards are selected, you may use this power to draw a flare from the unused flare deck and add it to your hand. Then, if you have two or more flares in your hand that do not match any players’ alien powers, you must choose one of those unmatched flares and remove it from the game. The flares you remove from the game cannot be drawn again.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Resource type power.

Wild: At the start of any encounter, you may take one minute to look through the deck, choose one card, and add it to your hand. Then, shuffle the discard pile together with the deck to form a new deck. Give this flare to the Aristocrat after use (or discard it, if the Aristocrat isn't playing).

As a main player or ally, after alliances are formed but before encounter cards are selected, use this power if there are any other player(s) on your side of the encounter. Give one help card from your essence card cache to one of those players and then gain one reward. A player who has been given a help card can keep it faceup or facedown and look at it.

Other players may give their help cards back to you per the timing on the help card. When they do, use this power to provide the help as instructed; then either gain one reward or, if you can immediately use the help card for yourself, you may do so before placing the card faceup in the unavailable pile.

History: Mastering the art of obscurity, the Assistants seem to be omnipresent, relentlessly. Their inferior status is a veil from which they now quietly acquire a vast array of unnoticed resources.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Essence type power. Lost Territory Help (1/6) At any time, if you have lost a home colony, the Assistant will recolonize one of your home planets using up to 3 of your ships from your other colonies and/or the warp per your instructions.

If two of the revealed cards are the same card type, you may add any one of the revealed cards to your hand. If all three revealed cards are the same card type, then you may add any or all of the revealed cards to your hand, and all other players must discard all cards of that card type from their hands. After you take a spin, discard any revealed cards that are not added to your hand.

History: Creatures of risk, the one-armed Bandits roam the Cosmos looking for opportunities. However, where other aliens would shy away from near impossible odds, the Bandits thrive on them. They can often be heard spouting their philosophy – “Come on, take a chance. What do you have to lose?”

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Resource type power.

History: The Bleeding Hearts are an irresistibly beautiful species. All life and non-life forms they have encountered are awed and powerless in the presence of their beauty and the haunting aura of peace they release whenever aliens encounter each other. Their goal is to re-balance encounters between aliens and to create more peaceful Cosmic Universes where consciousness of every kind dedicates itself to appreciating the beauty of peaceful encounters.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Novice. This is a Deal type power.

Wild: Before allies are invited, you may declare "Peace Out!" and all attack cards with a value of 10 or higher become negotiate cards when revealed.

Super: When you fail to make a deal, your opponent's ship loss is doubled.



BRIDE [O:CD] Marries Players Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Marry. As a main player, before allies are invited, you may use this power to “marry“ your opponent. That player must choose one of his or her ships and place it on this sheet. You may be married to only one player at a time.

You and your “spouse“ may ally with each other without being invited and may show each other any cards in your hands at any time. Once per encounter, you may use this power to allow a trade of one card each from your hand and your spouse’s hand.

You may “divorce“ your spouse at any time by turning that player’s ship on your sheet upside-down and taking half of the cards in his or her hand at random (rounded down) as “alimony.“ You may not remarry a player you previously divorced. If this sheet is lost or turned facedown, you must divorce your current spouse without receiving alimony.

History: The Bride has left a trail of broken circulatory pumps and legal hijinks across the Cosmos, and yet her allure is impossible to resist. The Bride, however, eschews the social pressure of the present and rejects wallowing in the past as she drifts through space longing for a fantasy future with her true soulmate, be it a low-life Hate or a noble Ethic.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Rules type power.

Wild: As the defense, after the offense launches ships, you may run away from the encounter. The offense sends his or her ships from the gate to any one of his or her home planets, or any one unoccupied foreign planet, then ends his or her turn.

Super: You may remarry an opponent that you previously divorced. Turn that player's ship on your sheet faceup. Do not receive alimony from that opponent again.



BRUTE [O:CS] Threatens Opponent’s Ships Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Threaten. As a main player or ally, after alliances are formed, you may use this power to threaten one player on the opposing side. That player must either allow you to look at his or her hand of cards and take one card of your choice, or remove all of his or her ships from the encounter. Removed ships return to any of that player’s colonies.

If all of a main player’s ships are removed, he or she continues the encounter with zero ships. If all of an ally’s ships are are removed, he or she is no longer an ally.

History: What the Brutes lack in subtlety, they make up for in simplicity. They tend to be an aggressive race, with blunt, thuggish tactics where they can use their strength and massive frames to intimidate any opposition in their way.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Resource type power.

Wild: As a main player or ally, before compensation or defender rewards are collected, you may limit all players' compensation and rewards to one.

Super: As the offense, after alliances are formed, you may force the defense and each of his or her allies to send one ship from the encounter to the warp.



BULLY [O:CI] Selects Losing Ships Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Intimidate. As a main player, after winning an encounter in which both players revealed attack cards, you may use this power to choose which ships your opponent must lose. Your opponent loses the same number of ships he or she had in the encounter, but you take them from anywhere. If you are the offense and leave any of your opponent's ships on the target planet, your ships coexist there with your opponent's unless another game effect prevents you from doing so, in which case you do not receive a colony and must return your ships to your other colonies. If you are the defense, and of your opponent's ships that you leave in the hyperspace gate return to his or her other colonies.

History: Habitually cruel to those who show signs of weakness, the Bully exploits any opportunity to run roughshod over its opponents. The false courage that is the hallmark of the Bully strikes terror into the less aggressive races of the Universe, and many flee rather than risk a confrontation. If none stand in its way, the Bully seeks to trample its way to Cosmic dominance.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Rules type power.

Wild: As a main player, when your opponent reveals a negotiate card, you may force that player to either immediately give you a colony on a planet of your choice where he or she has a ship or else lose two ships of his or her choice to the warp. Cards changed to negotiate cards (such as Emotion Control) still trigger this effect.

BULWARK [M:CS] Reduces Ships Lost to One Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Resilience. As the offense or an ally, whenever you would lose ships to the warp that are involved in an encounter, use this power to send only one of the involved ships to the warp. The other ships involved in the encounter are returned to any of your colonies.

As the defense, whenever you would lose ships to the warp that are involved in an encounter, use this power to send only one of the involved ships to the warp. The other ships involved in the encounter remain on the colony.

Whenever you would lose ships to the warp as a result of any other game effect, use this power to reduce the number of ships lost to one.

History: The toughness of the Bulwarks is legendary. They think nothing of facing overwhelming odds or throwing themselves into the thick of battle, knowing they have the ability to endure nearly any hardship. The Bulwarks can also be as thick-headed as they are thick-skinned.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Novice. This is a Resource type power.

Wild: As a main player, when you would send more than one ship to the warp, you may reduce the number of ships sent to one. Ships not sent to the warp return to your other colonies.

BUTLER [O:CA] Gets Cards for Chores Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Serve. You flip the destiny card, launch ships, position the hyperspace gate, and perform all other manually demeaning chores for the offense after he or she signals the start of his or her encounter. Unless the offense gives you a tip of one card at random from his or her hand, you may use this power to perform your choice of either of the following: aim the hyperspace gate at any planet in the defense’s system where a legal encounter can be had or launch the offense’s ships from any of his or her colonies (but only as many ships as the offense specifies). If the offense does tip you, you must obey his or her wishes with regard to your chores for the rest of the encounter. You must perform certain functions without reward, such as dealing out cards that a player is entitled to. You must be courteous, and a tip of one card is all that you may collect per encounter.

History: “To serve is to live.” The motto of the house of Butt guides its family as they build for their true inner hope: to turn the Cosmic tables and rule forever.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Resource type power.

Wild: As the offense, at the start of your regroup phase, you may choose another player to be the offense for this encounter by saying “After you, I insist.“ The encounter is then carried out as normal, except that player must invite you to ally with him or her. After the encounter ends, play resumed from where it left off.

Super: You may demand a tip of two cards instead of one.



CALCULATOR [O:FFG] Reduces Higher Attack Card Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Equalize. As a main player, after cards are selected but before they are revealed, you may use this power to declare an "equalize". If you do so and both cards are revealed to be attack cards, the value of the higher card is reduced by the value of the lower card. Thus if an attack 15 and an attack 8 are played, the 15 has its value reduced to 7, but the 8 keeps its value 8. The encounter is then concluded normally.

History: Defenseless on a jungle world, the order of Calculators grew adroit at ensnaring their powerful but bungling competitors. Now adept at turning strength back against itself, they study the prospects of galactic empire, trusting that other grosser beings will not also grow calculating.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Rules type power.

Wild: As a main player, once encounter cards are selected, but before they are revealed, you may call "odd" or "even".

CAVALRY [O:CC] Plays Encounter Card as Ally Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Reinforce. As an ally, after encounters are selected but before they are revealed, you may use this power to play an attack or negotiate facedown from your hand off to one side. This second card is not considered your side’s encounter card and isn’t affected by game effects that target your side’s encounter card, such as Oracle or Sorcerer. If you reveal your card to be an attack, add it to your side’s total. This has no effect if your side’s encounter card is a negotiate. If you reveal a negotiate and your side loses the encounter, you receive compensation after your side’s main player has received compensation, if applicable. In any case, your card is discarded after use.

History: The childlike Changelings love play, and gleefully anticipate new experiences. Recently they have developed the unsettling ability to shed their psyches in exchange for those of others.

If you draw any encounter cards, you may choose one of the drawn encounter cards to replace your revealed encounter card (which is then discarded). If you have revealed an attack card and choose another attack card for divine intervention, the new card may either replace or add its value to the value of your revealed attack card, your choice. All other cards drawn for divine intervention are then discarded, and the encounter is resolved with the new card or card value.

If your opponent has no more encounter cards in hand and shows you so, he or she instead returns the revealed encounter card to his or her hand. all other cards played since the start of the planning phase are returned to their owner's hand. The encounter is then replayed from the start of the planning phase. You both can use any cards in your hands, and this time the outcome is final. When the encounter is over, your opponent takes back the card that was set aside.

History: Unique among life forms, the Chronos has forever been able to pierce the veil of time and control its own past.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Rules type power.

Super: When you use your power, discard two tokens from your alien sheet instead of one.



CITADEL [O:FFG] Builds Citadels on Planets Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Fortification. During each players turn, after destiny is drawn, you may play an attack card from your hand faceup next to any planet in any system as a citadel. If a planet with one or more citadels is attacked, after encounter cards are selected, but before they are revealed, you may use this power to activate all citadels on the planet. If so, add their combined value to the defenses total for the encounter. If you activate your citadels on a planet and the defense loses the encounter, discard the citadels. If the defense wins or you do not activate the citadels, they stay in place.

History: Brilliant architects who obsessively build vast fortresses as they travel throughout the Cosmos, the Citadels are often welcomed with open arms by the other races, who are delighted to benefit from the Universes best defenses.

You have the power to Act Unseen. Whenever both sides in an encounter reveal attack cards and the total of those cards is 20 or more, you may use this power immediately. All players must fan out their hands facedown on the table and then the other players immediately close their eyes and turn away from the table while you count out 15 seconds aloud. During this time you may move one ship, one card, both, or neither. If moving a ship, it must be from a planet to another planet or the warp, or from the warp to a planet. If moving a card, it must be from one player’s hand (without peeking) to another or to the top of the appropriate discard pile, or from the top of a discard pile to a player’s hand. As a diversion, you may slightly shift other ships and cards without changing their location.

After the first 15 seconds are up, count out another 15 seconds while the other players look for the changes you made. They may not touch their cards or discuss, gesture, or communicate with each other in any way. Before time runs out, any one of those players, on a first-come, first-served basis, may claim that you moved one ship, one card, both, or neither, and must identify either the source or destination for each move. If that player is completely correct, he or she may either undo any or all changes or receive one reward. If the player is incorrect or no claim is made before time runs out, no changes are undone and you receive one reward.

History: Tired of simplistic shoplifting and bored with petty voyeurism, the Cloaks now venture forth draped in interstellar gauze, tweaking this and adjusting that.

History: A prolific species on a slowly cooling globe, the Clones traditionally selected the best of their race to represent them in territorial struggles. But as the gene pool thinned, one clan developed techniques to artificially duplicate their champion before battle.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Novice. This is a Resource type power.

Wild: You do not have to discard any artifact you play. Instead you may retain it and play it again during a later encounter.

CONVERTER [O:CS] Can Substitute Cards for Ships Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Exchange. Whenever you would lose ships to the warp, you may use this power to discard up to an equal number of cards from your hand.

Whenever you would retrieve one or more ships from the warp, you may use this power to instead draw cards from the deck. Draw one card for each ship you choose not to retrieve from the warp.

Wild: As an ally, if you would lose one or more ships to the warp due to losing an encounter, you may force every player on the winning side to discard one card at random from his or her hand.

COORDINATOR [O:CS] Manipulates Destiny Deck Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Schedule. As the offense, instead of drawing a card from the destiny deck, you may use this power to look at the top three cards of the destiny deck and choose any one of them to be the destiny card you have drawn. Place the other two cards on the top and/or bottom of the destiny deck in any order you choose.

When you use your power, if there are fewer than three cards remaining in the destiny deck, shuffle the destiny discard pile together with the destiny deck to form a new deck. You may only use this power once per encounter.

History: Warfare in the Cosmos is rarely well scheduled. However, amidst the chaos, the Coordinator is able to prepare for different contingencies far more than most other races.

Restriction: Do not use with Dictator.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Rules type power.

Wild: As the offense, after destiny is drawn, you may discard your destiny card and draw again.

COWARD [O:CE] Withdraws From Encounter Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Flee. As a main player, after encounter cards are selected but before they are revealed, you may use this power to fee. Proceed to the resolution phase.

For each affected player, stack his or her involved ships and place one of your crusher ships from this sheet on top. Each crushed stack is controlled by its owner, and moves and counts as a single ship in every way. A crushed stack may not have ships added to or removed from it and may not be re-crushed into another stack.

Whenever one or more of your ships go to the warp, you may use this power to choose one other player and crush all of that player’s ships in the warp that are not already crushed.

During the alliance phase, you may use this power to release one or more crushed stacks in exchange for anything their owners could give you as part of a deal, and/or in exchange for their owners agreeing to receive cards from your hand.

CRYSTAL [O:CA] May Multiply Attack Cards Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Refract. As a main player or ally, use this power after both main players reveal attack cards.

History: The customary greeting among Cudgels is a hearty handshake and a solid blow to the head. This long-standing tradition- often fatal- is frequently misunderstood by weaker races, much to the amusement of the Cudgels. Now, having flattened all of their closest friends, the gregarious Cudgels look skyward, leaving the debris of their broken planet behind. With fists raised in friendship, they seek out new beings to meet, greet, and smash, and will not stop until the Cosmos itself is shattered.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Novice. This is a Resource type power.

Wild: When you gain a colony as the offense, you may send all ships on that planet belonging to other players to the warp. Ships that were allied with you on this encounter are not affected.

If a card played from this sheet would return to your hand after use, return it to its previous owner instead. At the end of the encounter, return any cards remaining on this sheet to their previous owner.

If both of your encounter cards are revealed to be attacks, the second card's value is added to your side's total. If either is a negotiate, then you have played a negotiate. After the encounter is resolved, discard the negotiate card if you played one, or the higher attack card if you did not, returning the other encounter card to your hand.

When checking to see if you draw a new hand, do so if you have one or fewer encounter card left, rather than none.

History: Grotesque creatures rejected by an old and cultured world, the Dictators pushed and clawed their way to planetary dominion.

Your ships coexist with any ships already on that planet unless another game effect prevents them from doing so, in which case they cannot be moved to that planet.

Wild: Play this flare when you attempt to make a deal. If you successfully make a deal, you and the other player in the deal each receive three defender rewards.

Super: As a main player or an ally, if the main player opposing your side reveals a negotiate card, you may exchange it for an attack card from your hand. Conclude the encounter as if he or she revealed that attack card.

EMPEROR [O:CE] Demands Tribute Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Tribute. Each time another player sends one or more ships into an encounter in your system or gains a colony in your system, you may use this power to demand a tribute. That player must show you one card from his or her hand and must also give you one of his or her ships from a colony. Place the card facedown on this sheet and put the ship on top of the card as an owner ID. The player may refuse if he or she has already given you a tribute during this encounter.

At the end of any encounter, as long as there are three or more total tributes on this sheet from at least two different players, you may look at all of them. Add the tributes you consider worthy to your hand and discard those you consider unworthy. You may return one of the unworthy tributes to its giver, causing that player to lose three ships to the warp. Then the ID ships return to any of their owners’ colonies.

History: The egotistical magistrates of the Emperor race demand respect above all else. Rarely do gifts curry much favor with these narcissists, but an enticing offering made in a feigned spirit of deference can often turn away wrath, if only briefly.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Resource type power.

Wild: When a main player declines to invite you to ally, you may show him or her a card from your hand to reconsider. If that player invites you, then he or she decides which of you must keep the card. If he or she does not, then you decide which of you must keep the card.

Super: When using your power, you may demand an encounter card, a non-encounter card, a card of one particular type, or a specific card by name. The other player must meet your demand if possible. (If not, then he or she offers any card normally.)



ENGINEER [O:CD] Gains Tech When Losing Fantasy Flight (Tech)

You have the power of Technology. As a main player, when you lose an encounter or fail to deal, you may use this power. Draw two tech cards from the technology deck (even if it is not otherwise in play). You may choose one of the drawn cards to place facedown on this sheet. If you do so, and another tech was already on this sheet, the new one replaces it. The tech(s) you do not keep are discarded.

You may research the tech card on this sheet normally and/or count your ships in the warp toward its research cost. When the tech is completed, move it off this sheet. Ships counted from the warp do not return to colonies with other researching ships, but may be used for the effect of a tech such as Coldsleep Ship or Genesis Bomb.

If this power or a tech card on it is stolen, discarded, etc., any ships that were researching the tech card on this sheet are returned to any of your colonies.

History: Engineers seek to rule the Universe through technological superiority. Valuing intelligence and ingenuity over might, they use scientific breakthroughs to subjugate those who oppose them, no matter how strong.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Resource type power.

Wild: You may draw cards from the deck until you draw an artifact card. Non-artifacts drawn are discarded. If you exhaust the deck without drawing an artifact, take any one artifact from the discard pile. Give this flare to the Engineer after use (or discard it, if the Engineer isn't playing). (As Any Player) (Any Phase)

Super: When using your power, instead of drawing two tech cards you may look through the technology deck and take one card your choice. Then, shuffle the technology deck.



ETHIC [M:CI] Gets Compensation for Attack Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Guilt. As a main player, after you lose an encounter in which both main players revealed attack cards, use this power to collect compensation from your opponent as though you had played a negotiate card instead.

Whenever you gain compensation, you may draw some or all of it from the deck instead of your opponent.

History: Subscribing to a moral code of the utmost purity, the Ethics set a universal standard of conduct. Those who would harm the Ethics find themselves curiously repentant. Knowing that they are possessed of the One True Way, the race of Ethics now seek to convert Outsiders through moral persuasion.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Novice. This is a Resource type power.

Wild: When you draw any new card(s) from the deck, use this flare. For the rest of the encounter, each time you draw cards, you may feel guilty and give away some or all of them to other players. You may not, however, give away more than three cards per encounter in this way.

Super: When you collect compensation, name a number from zero to eight and take that many cards as compensation.



EVIL TWIN [O:CE] Avoids Penalties Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Blame. As a main player, after the offense launches ships, you may use this power to declare any other player except your opponent as your good twin by giving him or her a twin token. Until the next time destiny is drawn, loses and penalties suffered by you must instead be suffered by your good twin. Then your twin token is returned to this sheet.

Losses and penalties include cards from you hand, which are supposed to be discarded, cards which you must give to another player (other than your good twin), and ships which are supposed to go to the warp. Also, essence card penalties such as tickets, traumas, and nightmares given to you are passed on to your good twin. When you lose a colony, your good twin loses the number of ships you had on the colony to the warp. your ships which would have been lost return to your other colonies if possible. Otherwise, they remain on the colony.

History: On a world where all are twins, it was not long before the powerful evil twins began dodging responsibility. ETs grow stronger as cast-off GTs habitually shoulder wrongful blame.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Rules type power.

Wild: When you must send ships to the warp or lose cards to compensation, as long as you are not currently a good twin to the Evil Twin, you may force the player to your left to suffer the loss of the same number of ships or cards, if possible, instead of you. Give this flare to that player after use.

Super: You may become triplets by giving twin tokens to two other players, even if one is your opponent. Each of your two good twins simultaneously suffers each entire loss or penalty which would have been suffered by you. Both tokens return to your sheet on the next destiny draw.



EXPLORER [O:CD] Finds New Planets Fantasy Flight

Game Setup: Choose one unused player color and place four planets of that color on this sheet. Do not use this power unless you have an unused player color.

You have the power of Discovery. As the offense, after the hyperspace gate is aimed, you may use this power to take a planet from this sheet, place it in the targeted system, and re-aim the gate at that planet.

As a main player or ally, after both players reveal attack cards, you may use this power to increase your side’s total according to the planets you have discovered. Add 1 for each discovered planet you do not have a colony on, 2 for each discovered planet you coexist on, and 4 for each discovered planet you occupy alone.

History: As the various child-races of the Precursors began to take to the stars, most were drawn to one another in their hunger for knowledge, trade, defense, conflict, and the other manifold needs that drove them forward. The Explorers, however, often bypassed other sentient beings in their haste to catalog new worlds. Even centuries later, this obsession continues; but now they begin to reap the rewards of their diverse discoveries.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Planet type power.

Wild: As the offense, after the hyperspace gate is aimed, you may take the Genesis planet (whether it is in use or not), place it in the targeted system, and re-aim the gate at that planet. You may receive rewards equal to your ships in the encounter if you win or make a deal, or one reward if you do not (in addition to any other benefits of the encounter outcome).

Super: As a main player or ally in an encounter at any planet you discovered, after encounter cards are revealed you may add 4 to your side's total.



EXTORTIONIST [O:CA] Gets Half of All New Cards Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Extort. After starting hands are dealt, whenever any other player acquires cards as compensation or draws new cards for any reason (including defensive rewards, new hands, etc.), you may use this power to randomly acquire or draw half of those cards (rounded down) for yourself instead. A player may prevent you from extorting any cards from him or her by allowing you to send one of his or her ships of your choice to the warp, but he or she must do so before you take any cards.

History: Warped by an unstable environment, the Extortionist has long been crazed by greed. Extortionists prefer wealth that has been unjustly siphoned from honest wage-earners, and now, with their hands ever extended, they hope to amass enough for the final takeover.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Resource type power.

Wild: Each time you attempt to make a deal with another player (or players), play this flare. If you fail to make a deal, you do not lose any ships to the warp, while the other player (or players) attempting to make a deal lose twice as many ships to the warp as usual for the failed deal.

Super: A player may not prevent you from extorting cards by sending a ship to the warp if you don't wish to accept the payment.



FIDO [O:FFG] Retrieves Discarded Cards Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Fetch. After encounter cards are discarded at the end of an encounter, you may use this power to retrieve one of the discarded cards and offer it to another player. If the card is refused, you may keep it. If the card is accepted, the other player keeps the card, then you may either retrieve one ship from the warp or draw one card from the deck.

History: Trained for generations by a strict, but unknown alien race, the Fidos were bred for retrieval. Slinking out on their own, they cannot help but fetch the debris of outer space for whomever happens by, knowing they will still be rewarded in some way.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Resource type power.

Wild: As a main player, before cards are selected, you may force your opponent to take the top card of the discard pile and add it to his hand. You then draw a card from the deck.

You have the power of Theft. As a main player, after encounter cards are discarded at the end of an encounter, you may use this power to retrieve your opponent's card from the discard pile and add it to your hand.

History: Within their genteel, sophisticated tribes, the Filches have refined the art of acquisition to a high aesthetic. The most judicious and subtle thefts are memorialized in legend and song. Lately they have taken to eying the depths of space and thoughtfully rippling their tentacles.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Novice. This is a Resource type power.

Wild: You may discard a negotiate card from your hand to steal any one artifact or flare as it is being played. The stolen card has no effect on its intended victim, going into your hand instead.

Wild: (Classic Edition) You may cheat and take your ships from the warp (to colonies) or cards from the deck or discard pile, even when you are not entitled to them. If caught in the act, you lose one ship to the warp and return the items you were caught filching. You don't have to reveal this card unless you are caught, but once if is revealed the deck and discards are placed next to you for easy access.

Super: You may filch any other player's used encounter card whether you were involved in the encounter or not.

FILTH [M:CC] Drives Away Others’ Ships Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Reek. Any time any of your ships are coexisting on the same planet as any other player’s ships, use this power to force the other player’s ships to return to his or her other colonies.

Your allies in a winning offensive encounter do not land on the defending planet with you. However, they each still gain a colony on any other planet of their choice (each player chooses separately) in the defending system.

When you lose an encounter as the defense on a planet where you have ships, use this power to force all opposing ships to return to their other colonies instead of landing on your planet. Your losing ships go to the warp normally and the planet is then ”fumigated”.

When you agree to trade colonies in a deal, you and that other player must each vacate a planet for the other player to land on.

History: The Filth’s reverence for the past leaves it unable to remove any trace of earlier events - whether yesterday’s glatorp stains or last year’s diseased kinzosh. Having driven all other lifeforms from their home worlds, they are slowly extending out to leave their mark - a ring around the Cosmos.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Rules type power.

Wild: At any time, you may declare one planet to be "filthy". All ships there are returned to their other colonies (or to the warp if they have no other colonies). Any ships that should land there during this encounter instead return to their other colonies. Give this flare to the Filth after use (or discard it, if Filth isn't playing).

Super: As the offense, when you aim the hyperspace gate at a planet, all other players' ships on that planet (including the defense) must immediately return to their other colonies (or to the warp if they have no other colonies).



FIRE DANCER [O:CE] Blocks Access Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Awe. As a main player, when you reveal an attack card and there is no fire token in the targeted system, you may use this power to place a fire token in that system. At the end of that encounter, all attack cards revealed are placed faceup under the new fire token as fuel instead of being discarded (regardless of other game effects such as the Clone’s power).

When you are not a main player, after destiny is drawn, you may offer to create or expand a fire in the targeted system, and the defense may offer you anything he or she could give you as part of a deal to do so. You may use this power to accept the offer. If the targeted system does not already have a fire token, place one there. Then, you and the defense may each place one attack card from your hand faceup under that system’s new or existing fire token as fuel.

Whenever both sides in an encounter reveal attack cards in a system with a fire token, unless you are the offense or an offensive ally, the face value number showing on each fuel card is added to the defense’s total. At the end of the encounter, a fire which added to the defense’s total is extinguished, and the fire token and fuel cards are discarded. If this sheet is lost or turned facedown, all of your fires are extinguished.

History: The Fire Dancers stir a sense of awe by performing their cultural art form for others who compete to be the next sponsor of their magical performance.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Deal type power.

Super: At the start of your turn, you may place one attack card from your hand faceup underneath one of your fire tokens.



FODDER [O:FFG] Plays Additional Low Cards Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Overwhelm. As a main player, you may use this power after both you and your opponent reveal attack cards in an encounter. You may discard any or all attack cards in your hand that are both higher than the attack card you played and lower than the attack card played by your opponent, adding their value to your total.

Super: You may use your power to discard attacks cards that are equal to or lower than the card you played.



FUNGUS [M:CI] Attaches to Other Ships Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Adhere. As a main player or ally, after you win an encounter in which you have at least one ship, use this power to capture any losing ships, stacking them under one or more of your ships in the encounter instead of sending them to the warp (effects that would save ships from the warp, such as Zombie's or Healer's power, cannot prevent this). Captured ships do not have special characteristics, e.g., Macron ships are not worth four. These stacks are controlled by you. Each stack is considered to be one ship for purposes of play. Ships that are part of a stack are only freed when the stack enters the warp. Freed ships are returned to normal and may leave the warp as usual.

As a main player or ally in an encounter, after encounter cards are revealed, use this power. Each stack you have in the encounter adds the number of ships it contains to your side's total instead of 1. Zapping this power does not free any captured ships.

History: The Fungus clings tenaciously to its basic perceptions, and now its neighbors find its teachings (and tendrils) rapidly growing upon them.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Resource type power.

Wild: When you win as the defense in your home system, you may collect all opposing ships in the encounter and place them in a circle around your home system.

When you discard this card, the captured ships return to their owner's colonies, if any.

Super: Ships adhering to yours in stacks are not released when sent to the warp. When you retrieve a ships from the warp, those ships in its stack remain with it.



FURY [M:CI] Avenges Lost Ships Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Vengeance. Each time one or more of your ships is lost to the warp or removed from the game, use this power to place one token on this sheet for each of your ships lost to the warp or removed from the game.

As a main player or ally, after encounter cards are selected but before they are revealed, discard any number of tokens from this sheet to add or subtract 3 from your side's total for each token you discard. Discarded tokens are spent and are not returned to this sheet regardless of the encounter's outcome.

History: Powerful warriors of a matriarchal race, the Furies swear vengeance on anyone foolish enough to defeat one of their champions in battle. Although the quest may take years, the vengeance of the Furies is always served in the end.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Novice. This is a Combat type power.

Wild: As a main player, when you lose an encounter, you may destroy one ship (their choice) belonging to each player that opposed you. Destroyed ships are removed from the game. This flare cannot reduce a player to fewer ships than the number of foreign colonies needed to win the game, although it still affects the other players that opposed you.

Super: You don't spend tokens from your sheet to use your power. Instead, you may add or subtract 3 from your side's total for each token on your sheet.



GAMBLER [O:FFG] Bluffs About Card Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Bluff. After your opponent reveals his or her encounter card, you may use this power to keep yours facedown, instead stating what it is (and lying if you like). If your opponent does not challenge your claim, conclude the encounter as if your statement were true, then place your encounter card facedown on the bottom of the deck instead of discarding it. If your opponent challenges your claim, reveal your card. If you lied, you lose as many ships to the warp as you had in the encounter. If you told the truth, your opponent loses as many ships as he or she had in the encounter. These lost ships may not be ships involved in the encounter. Afterwards, conclude the encounter normally using the revealed cards.

History: Arising in an era of geological turmoil, the Gamblers trusted only their own audacity. The faint of heart soon perished, but the most daring rose to even greater effronteries and now launch a contest for Cosmic stakes.

Restriction: Do not use with Sorcerer.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Rules type power.

Wild: As a main player, before cards are revealed, you may call any number as a "spread". If the encounter cards are different from each other by that number or more, add the "spread" to your card.

Super: When stating what your card is, you may "up the ante" by saying how many extra ships (1-20) are at risk. The penalty for lying or calling a non-bluff is now as many extra tokens as you declared.



GENERAL [M:CA] Draws Cards for Allies Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Leadership. As a main player, after alliances are formed, use this power. You may immediately draw one card per player allied with you in this encounter. Afterwards, each of your allies may draw one card.

History: A military society from their earliest days, the Generals have always placed a high value on leadership and charisma. Their history is full of some of the most inspiring spe...eches ever given in all the Cosmos. Whenever a ragtag band of warriors stands up to defy the odds, a General will be there to lead them.

GENIUS [O:CI] Wins With 20 Cards Fantasy Flight

At the start of any turn, if you have 20 or more cards in your hand, you immediately win the game. You may still win the game via the normal method.

History: Originating on a planet filled with some of the universe’s deadliest predators, the Geniuses had to be smarter and more ruthless than any other creature on their world in order to survive. Now that they’ve left their home planet, the Geniuses have turned their prodigious intelligence towards a bloodless coup of the universe.

Wild: As a main player, before allies are invited, any number of players you choose (including yourself) must draw a card.

Those dealing with the Gluttons are advised to count their digits afterwards and to always keep an eyestalk or two on their ”tender, succulent” offspring.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Novice. This is a Resource type power.

Wild: When receiving defender rewards, you receive twice as many defender rewards as normal.

Super: When a cosmic quake occurs, you immediately win the game.



GORGON [M:CA] Petrifies Others’ Ships Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Petrify. When another player attempts to move any ships from one or more of your home planets or that are coexisting on any planet with your ships, use this power. That player must either leave those ships where they are or send them to the warp.

Your own ships are never sent to the warp as a result of your power.

You do not lose this power due to having too few home colonies.

History: The horrifying sight of the Gorgons petrifies any creature that looks upon them. A stranger to a Gorgon world might think this race overly fond of statuary, only to find the statues springing back to life once the Gorgons leave. Because of their powerful effect on others, the Gorgons often find it difficult to get others to cooperate in their quest for Cosmic conquest.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Rules type power.

Wild: As a main player, before allies are invited, choose a planet. Ships on that planet cannot defend or move during this encounter and cannot be sent to the warp during this encounter unless the planet is destroyed.

History: A cunning, intelligent race from a binary star near a black hole, the Gravitons have mastered the ability to manipulate gravity. Herding and squeezing their enemies into tighter and tighter formations, the Gravitons rely heavily on their allies and reinforcements to finish the fight.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Combat type power.

Wild: As a main player (if the Graviton is not your opponent), play this flare before encounter cards are selected. Any attack cards revealed in this encounter only use their ones digit as their value (e.g., an attack 21 would be considered an attack 1).

GREENHORN [M:CD] Makes Convenient Mistakes Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Ignorance. At the start of each encounter, if you have card(s) in your hand, use this power to show one of the cards in your hand to one other player. Then, ask him or her a question about that card, aloud. He or she does not need to answer the question.

Whenever you have no attack cards in your hand, you may draw a new hand.

During any regroup phase, you may rearrange your ships among any of your colonies and/or home planets, even the home planets where you have no colony.

You may play your kicker after encounter cards are revealed rather than before they are selected; play reinforcements when you are not involved in the encounter; and play rifts and artifacts that are limited to the regroup or alliance phase as though they were playable As Any Player and during Any Phase.

History: The Greenhorns are relative newcomers to the scene of Cosmic warfare. Feigning inexperience, they use their wiles to trick other races into allowing them to get away with everything in the book.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Novice. This is a Rules type power.

Wild: If your hand is out of attack cards, negotiate cards, or both, you may discard your hand and draw a new one (potentially continuing your turn if you are the offense).

You do not lose your power because of having too few home colonies.

History: The Grumpus is indeed a stodgy curmudgeon. Other species prefer not to interact with he Grumpi, lest they be drawn into a long-winded conversation about how the Universe was better back in their millennium.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Novice. This is a Resource type power.

Wild: After you lose an encounter as the defense, you may blow your own planet up rather than allow it to be captured. The planet is removed from the game along with all of the attacking ships (your side's ships are sent to the warp as normal).

Any ships removed from the game that would reduce a player below this number are sent to the warp as normal.

Super: Each player you weaken that has three or fewer ships in the encounter loses all of his or her ships in the encounter to the warp.



HACKER [O:FFG] Chooses Compensation Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Hack. As a main player, when collecting compensation, you may use this power to choose the player that you are collecting compensation from, whether that player was your opponent or not. You then look through that players hand and choose the cards you want for compensation.

In addition, when your opponent collects compensation from you, you may use this power to select the cards he or she gets.

History: Masters of technology, the Hackers have embedded various devices into their bodies in an attempt to improve their skills at computer fraud. Although geniuses when it comes to code breaking and decrypting data, Hackers arent much good in a more conventional battle. However, more than one would-be conqueror has learned to their sorrow that the Hackers have extremely nasty ways of getting their revenge.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Novice. This is a Rules type power.

Wild: You may prevent your opponent from collecting compensation from you.

Super: When you collect compensation from the player of your choice, you may also give that player up to the same number of cards or your choice from your hand.



HATE [M:FFG] Opponents Lose Cards or Ships Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Rage. At the start of your turn, use this power to force every player to either discard a card or lose ships. First, choose and discard a card from your hand. Every other player must then choose to either discard a card of the same type (attack, negotiate, artifact, etc.) or lose three ships of your choice to the warp. If you discard an attack card, your opponents must discard an attack card of equal or higher value. If an opponent has no cards of the discarded type, he or she must lose ships instead. If, after using this power, you do not have any encounter cards in your hand, draw a new hand.

History: A short, physically unimposing race, the Hate evolved in a crowded part of the Cosmos and were pushed aside by other, more powerful, races. Forced to subsist on food scraps and the leavings of the other species, the Hate swore that one day they would be the ultimate power on the Cosmic scene.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Rules type power.

Wild: As a main player, before encounter cards are selected, you may force your opponent to discard one card at random from his or her hand. If he or she has no encounter cards left after doing so, you win the encounter.

Super: Instead of discarding a card to use your power, you may show the card to the other players and then return it to your hand.



HEALER [O:FFG] Can Save Others' Ships from Warp Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Heal. When another player loses ships to the warp or has ships removed from the game, you may use this power to return to that player all the ships he or she just lost and earn one card from the deck. Being healed does not prevent a player from receiving compensation. A healed player replaces his or her ships on any of his or her colonies. During an encounter you may heal several players, drawing one card for each.

History: Rapid geological activity forced extreme biological diversification on the Healer home world. Possessing vast knowledge of herbal and mutant lore, Healers are now prized by other beings for their life sustaining skills. Amidst loud rejoicing over renewed health, who could deny them their modest fee?

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Resource type power.

Wild: You may cause any "Cosmic Zap" played on you to be discarded without effect.

Super: You may raise your fee for healing other players to one card from the deck per ship you heal.



HORDE [M:CA] Gains Tokens That Act as Ships Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Spawn. Each time you draw a card or retrieve a ship from the warp, use this power. Add a horde token to one of your colonies. Treat horde tokens as ships under your control, but discard them if sent to the warp, removed from the game, or captured by another player. If you lose this power, horde tokens remain until discarded.

Your power cannot be stolen or copied through any means.

History: A little-known race from a Cosmic backwater, the Horde have only one real skill – spawning. Leave a Horde alone in a room for a minute, and you’ll return to two Hordes avidly chatting with each other. Leave them in your house for an afternoon, and you’ll return home to find that they’ve taken over your city – at which point, if you’re lucky, you’ll have just enough time to flee the planet before they claim it in the name of the Horde race.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Resource type power.

Wild: During your regroup phase, if there is an unused player color, you may add a ship of that color to one of your colonies instead of retrieving a ship from the warp. If that ship is ever alone on a planet or goes to the warp, it is removed from the game.

Super: When you use your power, you receive twice as many horde tokens as usual.



HOST [O:CD] Plays and Adds Unused Flares Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Channel. At the start of any player’s turn, you may remove any or all flares on this sheet from the game, and/or draw cards from the unused flare deck to place facedown on this sheet until you have three here, in either order.

At any time, you may use this power to play a wild flare from this sheet as though it were in your hand. If the flare would return to your hand after use, discard it to the regular discard pile. If you are zapped, place the flare back on this sheet. Cards played from this sheet do not count toward the normal limit of one flare per encounter.

History: The Hosts’ ability to channel the spiritual essence of past and future aliens allows them to manifest some of the defining characteristics of their alien occupants. After being channeled, some aliens decide the experience was so pleasant they return to active public life, popping up here and there to affect galactic events.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Resource type power.

Wild: You may draw three cards from the unused flare deck and add them to your hand. Give this flare to the Host after use (or discard it, if the Host isn't playing).

Super: When drawing flares for your sheet at the start of a turn, you may draw two additional cards. Choose from all drawn cards, placing some on your sheet until you have three. The cards that are not chosen are removed from the game.



HUMAN [M:FFG] Mostly Harmless Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Humanity. As a main player or ally, after encounter cards are revealed, use this power to add 4 to your side's total. If this power is zapped, however, your side automatically wins the encounter.

History: Warlike and fairly dim by Cosmic standards, humans are not seen as much of a threat. However, exposing a human to Cosmic energy can unlock strange and awesome powers. General consensus among the other races is that this is a course of action that is to be avoided.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Combat type power.

Wild: As a main player, if your opponent is not the Human, you may use this flare after encounter cards are revealed to change your encounter card into an attack 42. Afterwards, give this flare to the Human. If the Human is not playing, discard this flare to use it.

Super: You may cause your power to add 8 to your side's total instead of 4. Also, you may discard this flare to zap your power.



HUNGER [M:CE] Feeds on Others’ Hands Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Extra Helpings. At the start of your turn, use this power to take one card at random from each other player’s hand.

At the start of each other player’s turn, use this power to take one card at random from that player’s hand.

History: Evolving as perpetually ravenous creatures on a planet with limited water, flora, and fauna, the Hunger grew adept at maximizing opportunities to seize and exploit all possible sources of sustenance. Now they are sending their ships out into the Cosmos on foraging missions and hope to gather nourishment from gullible neighbors and fertile, poorly protected planets.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Novice. This is a Card Gain type power.

Wild: As a main player, before encounter cards are selected, you may reveal the top card of the cosmic deck or the reward deck. Either discard that card and keep this flare, or keep that card and give this flare to the Hunger (or discard it, if the Hunger isn't playing).

Super: When using your power at the start of another player's turn, you may take up to two cards from that player. Each card taken may be kept, discarded, returned, or given to any other player.



HYPOCHONDRIAC [O:CE] Shares Anxiety Fantasy Flight

Game Setup: For each other player in the game, place two anxiety tokens on this sheet (e.g., eight tokens in a five-player game).

You have the power of Anxiety. As a main player or ally, during the planning phase, you may use this power to name one other main player or ally who makes you anxious (for any reason). Explain why and seek a remedy. Regardless of who’s making you anxious, any player or players may, individually or together, offer you a remedy of anything they could give you as part of a deal and/or abandoning any of their colonies (returning the ships to other colonies). You have one minute to either accept one remedy or give the named player one of your anxiety tokens.

At the end of any encounter that has a winner and a loser, the winner may give up to half of his or her anxiety tokens (rounded up) to the loser, but may give only one if the loser is you. Anxiety tokens may also be traded in deals.

The player or players who have the most anxiety tokens (even you) cannot land their ships on a planet if establishing that colony would win them the game. Those ships return to other colonies.

History: Parlaying self-pity and hypersensitivity to a new level, the Hypochondriacs are tiptoeing into the realms of deep space to cough in the faces of the Cosmic masses.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Rules type power.

Wild: At any time, you may place this card in front of your system and declare yourself "not at home." While this card is in front of your system, no other player may aim the hyperspace gate at one of your home planets. Destiny is drawn again as necessary. At the start of your next turn, give this flare to the Hypochondriac (or discard it, if the Hypochondriac isn't playing).

Super: You may be anxious twice per encounter, but not about the same person.



INDUSTRIALIST [M:CC] Adds Losing Attack Cards Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Build. As a main player, after you lose an encounter in which you have revealed an attack card, your opponent must either allow you to win the encounter instead of losing, or else allow you to pace your attack card faceup on this sheet, adding it to your ”stack”. Your stack is not part of your hand and cannot be drawn from by other players or affected by other powers.

As a main player, after you reveal an attack card, use this power to either add or subtract the total of all the faceup attack cards in your stack from your side’s total. For instance, if you have an attack 08 and an attack 12 on this sheet, you would add or subtract 20 from your side’s total.

History: The Industrialists have shown themselves to be masters at learning from their own mistakes. From the ashes of each defeat arises a more powerful assault the next time. Even though the Industrialists don’t seem to learn as much from their successes, the strength they’ve gained from their defeats is sufficient to carve out a large piece of the Cosmos for themselves.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Combat type power.

Wild: As a main player, after you reveal an attack card, draw a card at random from your opponent's hand. If it's an attack card, add it to your side's total, then discard it. Otherwise, return it to your opponent's hand.

Super: When adding a card to your stack, you may add either main player's revealed encounter card (as long as it's an attack) to your stack.



INVADER [O:CC] Launches Sneak Attacks Fantasy Flight

Game Setup: Shuffle the three ”Invasion!” destiny cards into the destiny deck. These destiny cards allow you to have an extra encounter when drawn during another player’s turn. After you have an extra encounter due to an ”Invasion!” destiny card, the player who drew it during his or her turn receives another encounter.

You have the power of Invasion. As a main player, after an ”Invasion!” destiny card or destiny card of your player color is drawn, you may use this power to discard your entire hand and draw a new hand of eight cards before having your extra encounter. Only use this power once per encounter.

History: Originating in a place beyond space and time, the Invaders have slowly eroded away at the barriers between There and Here, planning their invasion of our universe all the while. Now, at last, their time is at hand, and they have begun tearing their way through the veils that remain, popping up in an instant to wreak havoc on everything they find in this new, unnatural place.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Resource type power.

Wild: At any time, discard your hand and draw a new hand of eight cards. Afterwards, give this card to the Invader, or discard it if the Invader isn't playing.

Super: During an Invasion! encounter, you may send ships from the warp into the encounter (normal max applies). If the ships survive the encounter, they do not return to the warp.



JOKER [M:CD] Makes Attack Cards Wild Fantasy Flight

Game Setup: Take the nine joker tokens (six different attacks, a regular negotiate, a morph, and a retreat) and place them faceup on this sheet.

You have the power of Wild Cards. Attack 08 cards are initially “wild“. At the start of your turn, you may name any other attack card to become the new wild card instead.

After encounter cards are revealed, for each one that matches the current wild card, use this power. Place one faceup joker token from this sheet on the wild card to change it into the card indicated by the token. After the outcome is determined, return the used joker token(s) to this sheet, facedown. When you remove the last faceup joker token from this sheet, immediately turn the used ones here faceup for reuse.

History: The Fun-loving Jokers enjoy humiliating the conceited, mocking the powers that be, and causing general chaos. They seek not to rule, but to satirize the Universe.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Rules type power.

Wild: As a main player or ally, you may change one revealed negotiate card into an attack 08.

Super: At any time, you may name any encounter card to become the new wild card, such as attack 06, the regular negotiate card, or Negotiate (Epic Oratory). When you lose this flare, attack 08 immediately becomes the wild card again.



JUDGE [O:CD] Assigns Extra Win/Lose Terms Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Fiat. As a main player, before encounter cards are selected, you may use this power to declare any extra gains that either the winner or the loser (but not both) will get if an attack card is revealed. These extra gains are limited by the rules on deals: one colony where the opponent has a colony and/or card(s) from the opponent. For example, you may declare “the winner will also get all of the loser’s cards, and an extra colony on any planet where the loser has a colony.“ The fiat is in addition to the normal results, and happens at the end of the encounter.

History: Long ago abandoning physical bodies, the Judges periodically coalesce amidst perfect protocol to deliberate upon their destiny. The Ring of Judges, when reflecting, creates a field of power in which each creature may ponder its fate.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Rules type power.

Wild: As a main player, if the two encounter totals differ by less than 5, you may call it a draw. Allies return their ships to any of their colonies and you and your opponent attempt to make a deal as if negotiate cards had been revealed.

Super: Your fiat may include gains for both the winner and the loser.



KAMIKAZE [O:FFG] Sacrifices Ships for Cards Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Sacrifice. As a main player, before encounter cards are selected, you may use this power to send up to four of your ships from any of your colonies to the warp. For every ship you sent to the warp, draw two cards from the deck. If this power is zapped, you do not lose the sacrificed ships to the warp.

History: Always a close-knit society, the Kamikaze have taken the virtue of self-sacrifice and raised it to an artform. In battle, they are greatly feared for their ability to die explosively at will. But the Kamikaze know that when their race rises to Cosmic superiority, those who gave their lives along the way will be remembered forever.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Resource type power.

Wild: As a main player, after encounter cards are selected but before they are revealed, you may send up to four of your ships that are not in the encounter to the warp to add 3 to your side’s total for each ship sacrificed.

Super: You may retrieve three ships from the warp during each of your regroup phases instead of one.



KLUTZ [M:CE] Fumbles Cards and Ships Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Clumsiness. Whenever you draw more than one card from the deck (including when you are dealt your initial hand), use this power to drop one or two of the drawn cards. The dropped cards are discarded without replacements.

Whenever you place more than one of your ships on the same planet, use this power to examine any one other ship on a planet in the same system next to the planet you are placing ships on. Then drop it. The dropped ship goes to the warp.

History: The Klutzes are described by their Cosmic neighbors as being all thumbs, and this is meant quite literally. Possessing no fingers and only marginally opposable thumblets, it is a wonder they can even tie their own podpads. Klutz reproduction is thus hypothesized to occur via a phenomenon that has come to be called ”improbably fortunate collisions.”

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Rules type power.

Wild: For the rest of this encounter, each time another player should draw more than one card from the deck, you may deal out that player's cards and deal one card faceup to that player, deal one card to the wrong opponent, or do both (with the same card or two different ones).

Super: As a losing main player or ally, you may pick up your losing ships and, as the last act of the resolution, drop them as a group from a height of one foot above the targeted planet. All players' ships that end up touching or overlapping any planets stay on those planets; others go to the warp.



LASER [M:CD] Blinds Opponent to Part of Hand Fantasy Flight

You have the Power to Blind. As a main player, before allies are invited, use this power. If your opponent will need to draw a new hand to obtain encounter cards, he or she does so now. Then, you select at random a number of cards in his or her hand (without looking at them) up to the number of ships he or she has in the encounter. Your opponent must set the selected cards aside for the rest of the encounter.

If your opponent has no encounter cards after being blinded, he or she loses the encounter. Otherwise, the encounter proceeds normally. At the end of the encounter, your opponent retrieves the cards that were set aside.

History: Descended from an ancient sun-worshipping cult, the modern Lasers have learned to Focus stellar power accurately enough to bedazzle any opposition. They have now embarked on a plan to spread confusion and fear among their enemies before stepping in to build a coherent Cosmos in their own image.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Novice. This is a Combat type power.

Wild: As a main player or ally, during the alliance phase, you may discard up to three cards from your hand. Select up to the same number of cards at random from any one player's hand (even your own). That player must set aside the chosen cards and cannot use them until the end of the encounter.

Super: You may use your power as an ally after alliances are formed, targeting either one of the main players.



LEVIATHAN [O:CI] May Attack With Planet Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Worldships. As the offense, after the hyperspace gate is aimed, you may use this power to choose one of your home planets that has no opposing ships on it and send it through the gate to attack as a worldship. Take the worldship (with all of your ships that were on it) and place it on the hyperspace gate. After encounter cards are revealed add 20 to your side’s total, plus 1 for each ship you have on your worldship. If you lose the encounter, return the worldship to your home system, sending all ships on it to the warp. If you win the encounter, return the wordships to your home system with your ships still on it, although you may leave one to four ships behind on the planet you successfully attacked.

History: Immense and powerful creatures, the Leviathans consumed every resource on their own worlds until they themselves became like planets. The Leviathan fleets, now stationed within the fleshy folds of their masters, scout out new worlds for the Leviathans to envelop. The sight of a world-sized entity gating in through hyperspace often causes madness and hysteria on the targeted planet, but it doesn’t last long.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Planet type power.

Wild: As the offense, after destiny is drawn, you may trade one home planet with the defense. Your planet moves to the defense's home system and vice versa. The encounter immediately ends successfully. Afterwards, give this flare to the Leviathan (or discard it, if Leviathan is not playing).

Super: Your worldships may contain any ships except the defense's ships. Other player's ships on your worldship count towards your side's total and those players are automatically allied with you for this encounter, but may not launch additional ships and do not receive a colony if your side wins.



LIGHTNING [M:CA] Gains and Takes Away Encounters Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Speed. Each time any other player takes a second encounter during his or her turn, use this power to add a token to this sheet.

After the end of any encounter (even your own), you may discard three tokens from this sheet to immediately have one encounter. Afterwards, play resumes from where it left off.

Alternately, at the start of a player’s second encounter, you may discard two tokens from this sheet to immediately end the encounter.

History: The Lightning live out their lives in a matter of hours. They move so fast that the rest of the universe seems to act in slow motion to them. More than one alien race has sneered at the short lifespan of the Lightning, only to find themselves taken over in a flash.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Rules type power.

Wild: Each time any other player takes a second encounter during his or her turn, you may draw three cards.

Super: Each time you use your power, add two tokens to your sheet instead of one.



LIZARD [M:CD] Metamorphoses After Winning Fantasy Flight

Game Setup: Choose one unused player color and place all the ships of that color on this sheet. Do not use this power unless you have an unused player color.

You have the power to Transmogrify. As a main player, after you win an encounter using any of your normal ships, use this power to morph those winning normal ships. Remove them from the game and replace them with an equal number from this sheet. Your morphed ships count as ships of your color, except that each one adds an extra +2 to your side’s total when involved in an encounter as a main player or ally (even after this power is zapped or lost).

When you have no normal ships remaining in the game, you win the game. You may still win the game via the normal method.

This power cannot be stolen, copied, or separated from your player color through any means.

History: The Lizards’ lifecycle comprises metamorphic stages not unlike those of other sentient reptilians. Due to their world’s proximity to a neutron star, however, they have developed an additional hyper-metamorphism that is triggered only by extreme adrenal overload. Finding battle victories to be effective activation events, the Lizards now seek physical perfection through conquest.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Novice. This is a Alternate Win type power.

Wild: As a main player or ally, after your side reveals an attack card, you may either double the values of all reinforcements you play after this flare or add one to the multiplier of a kicker you revealed as a main player.

Super: When using your power, you may also morph two of your normal ships that are not involved in the encounter.



LOCUST [M:CI] Eats Planets When Alone Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Devour. At the start of any regroup phase, if you have a foreign colony on a planet by yourself (i.e., there are no other ships on the planet with you), use this power to devour the planet, removing it from the game and placing it on this sheet. Your ships on that planet are returned to your other colonies.

Each planet you have devoured counts as one foreign colony towards victory for you, even if this power is later lost or stolen. If this power is stolen, devoured planets do not transfer with it.

History: The Locusts recently swarmed out of their home system in a vast cloud of ships, searching for uninhabited planets that they could break down and consume to meet the ever-growing energy needs of their people. Needless to say, the other aliens are keeping a nervous eye on these destructive gluttons.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Planet type power.

Wild: At the start of any regroup phase, you may send 4 of your ships to the warp to destroy a planet that is not in the Locust's home system, removing it from the game. Any ships on that planet are sent to the warp. Afterwards, give this flare to the Locust. If Locust is not in the game, discard it instead.

Super: Once per encounter, you may devour one foreign planet on which you have more total ships than all other players combined. If you do so, all other players' ships on that planet are sent to the warp.



LOSER [O:FFG] Winner Loses and Loser Wins Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Upset. As a main player, before encounter cards are selected, you may use this power to declare an upset. Once an upset has been declared, both main players must play attack cards, if possible. Then, after cards are revealed, the winning side loses and the losing side wins. This occurs after all other game effects are resolved (such as the Humans power being zapped).

History: The enigmatic Losers have proven to be quite cunning in battle. Strengths become weaknesses and weaknesses strengths as the glassy-eyed Loser shows its opponents that nice guys finish first.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Novice. This is a Combat type power.

Wild: As a main player, before encounter cards are selected, you may declare that both sides lose, sending all involved ships to the warp.

Super: You may wait until after cards are selected but before they are revealed before declaring an upset. When you do so, you and your opponent are not required to play attack cards if possible.



LOVE [M:CD] Makes the Cosmos Go ’Round Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Joy. At the start of your turn, use this power. Choose and discard one card from your hand. Every other player, in clockwise order, may then choose and discard one card from his or her hand. If he or she discards the same type as you (attack, negotiate, artifact, etc.), that player may release all of his or her ships from the warp back to colonies.

If all players discard the same type of card as you, you collect all of the discarded cards (including yours). If one or more other players do not discard a card matching the type you discarded, you may release all of your ships from the warp and use them to establish a foreign colony in the system of one of those players.

History: A maternalistic and physically imposing race, the Love used to be enveloped in rage and self-loathing. In their darkest hour, the Love began to see that simple acts of joy could become contagious; all that was needed was for one race to take the first step toward a happier existence.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Colony Gain type power.

Wild: As a main player, before encounter cards are selected, you may ask your opponent to discard one card at random from his or her hand. If he or she does, you may take the card; if he or she does not, you receive one reward.

Super: Instead of discarding a card to use your power, you may show the card to the other players and then return it to your hand.



LUNATIC [O:CC] Allies Against Self Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Insanity. As a main player, after allies are invited, you may use this power to ally against yourself without being invited. Your ships on the losing side are sent to the warp as normal, while your ships on the winning side receive whatever they would normally receive for winning, such as defender rewards or a colony on the defending planet.

History: Not known for their rational behavior, the Lunatics have existed this far by being on the winning side of every battle in some form or another.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Rules type power.

Wild: For each defender reward you receive, you may both draw a card from the deck and retrieve a ship from the warp. You do not have to choose one or the other.

Super: When not a main player, you may ally with both sides of any encounter, if invited by both main players.



MACHINE [O:FFG] Can Continue Turn Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Continuity. Your turn is not limited to two encounters. After completing an encounter (whether successful or not), you may use this power to have another encounter as long as you have at least one encounter card left in your hand.

History: A race long lost to antiquity had the foresight to construct a mammoth Machine in the core of their planet. Pouring all their knowledge and ambition into its memory banks, they programmed it with this mandate: Top priority...expand control, never cease...eliminate opposition, never cease...achieve mastery, never cease...

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Rules type power.

Wild: As the offense, you always have the option to have a second encounter, even if you lost your first encounter or are out of encounter cards. If you have no encounter cards at the start of your second encounter, draw a new hand.

Super: During each of your regroup phases, you may draw the top card from the deck instead of retrieving a ship from the warp.



MACRON [M:FFG] Each Ship is Worth 4 Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Mass. When you are a main player or ally, use this power after allies are invited. If you are the offense or an ally, you may only send one ship into the encounter. Each of your ships adds 4 to your sides total in the encounter instead of 1. When collecting compensation or rewards, each of your ships is worth two ships.

History: Beginning life on a gargantuan planet, the Macrons accustomed themselves to tremendous atmospheric and gravitational forces. Power comes so naturally to them that they scoff at the fragile intelligences they crush on their way to universal dominance.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Novice. This is a Rules type power.

Wild: As a main player or ally, after your reveal an attack card in an encounter, you may add 1 to your side's total for each ship you have in the encounter.

Super: As the offense or an ally, you may launch up to four ships in the hyperspace gate.



MAGICIAN [M:CI] Steals Cards, Confounds Opponent Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Prestidigitation. As a main player, use this power before encounter cards are selected to force your opponent to play two encounter cards facedown. Choose one of the two cards at random and add it to your hand. Then, play an encounter card from your hand normally (even the card you just took). Your opponent must play the card you didn't choose as his or her encounter card. The rest of the encounter is resolved as usual.

If your opponent only has one encounter card left (and proves it by showing you his hand except for the encounter card), your power has no effect.

History: Lacking any natural weapons with which to defend themselves, the Magicians had to use their keen intellect to survive. Confusing and confounding their enemies became second nature to the wily Magicians. Indeed, many a would-be Cosmic conqueror has found occasion to curse the day that the Magicians swindled a visiting alien out of his spaceship and soared out into the cosmos.

Restriction: Do not use with Oracle.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Resource type power.

Wild: When you are a main player, before selecting cards, you may force your opponent to play three encounter card facedown. Shuffle these cards around on the table. Your opponent chooses one of the facedown cards at random, which he or she then plays, returning the other two to his or her hand. If your opponent has fewer than three encounter cards, he or she discards his or her hand and draws a new one.

Super: When using your power, turn one of your opponent's two cards faceup before choosing. Choose either the faceup or facedown card and take it. Your opponent plays the card you did not choose, as normal.



MASOCHIST [M:FFG] Tries to Lose Own Ships Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Hurt Yourself. At the start of any player’s regroup phase, before the offense retrieves a ship from the warp, use this power to win the game if you have lost all of your ships. Lost ships include those in the warp, those removed from the game, and those captured by other players.

You do not lose this power because of having too few home colonies, and you may still win the game via the normal manner.

History: The Masochists suffer from a neurological disorder where they derive pleasure from self-flagellation. However, some are beginning to wonder if it’s really a religious ritual to bring forth their dominance in the universe.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Alternate Win type power.

Wild: During any regroup phase, you may choose a player other than the offense. That player retrieves a ship from the warp instead of the offense. You may not use this flare if the offense’s ships are all in the warp or removed from the game.

Super: During each of your regroup phases, you may choose one of your ships in the warp and remove it from the game instead of retrieving it as usual.



MAVEN [O:CE] Is Always Right Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Be Right. If you are not a main player or ally, after encounter cards are selected but before they are revealed, you may use this power to take all facedown cards played during the planning phase and stack them on this sheet without looking at them. Then proceed to the reveal phase and discard an attack or negotiate card from your hand to declare the outcome of the encounter. Discard an even-numbered attack card to declare that the offense wins. Discard an odd-numbered attack card to declare that the defense wins. Discard a negotiate card to declare that the main players will try to make a deal. You may not use this power if you do not have an attack or negotiate card to discard.

Cards you stack on this sheet are kept facedown until the appropriate deck is reshuffled, at which point they are reshuffled with that deck.

History: Tired of offering corrections to lesser species, the Mavens have decided to skip the middle-alien, as it were, and hasten to the endgame, declaring correct outcomes in a matter of seconds.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Rules type power.

Wild: When you are not involved in an encounter, after encounter cards are revealed, you may "correct" any encounter's outcome by adding 10 to either side's total. Give this flare to the Maven after use (or discard it, if the Maven isn't playing).

Super: When using your power, instead of placing cards on your alien sheet, you may add them all to your hand.



MERCENARY [M:CI] Always Rewarded for Winning Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Bounty Hunting. As a main player or offensive ally, after your side wins an encounter, use this power to gain defender reward as though you were a defensive ally (either retrieve one of your ships from the warp or draw one card from the deck for each ship you had in the encounter). This is in addition to any other benefits you receive normally for winning the encounter.

History: Originally created by another race to serve as police, the robotic Mercenaries were designed to be exert trackers and warriors. However, a terrible plague wiped out their master and, left along for eons, the Mercenaries gradually became self aware. Vowing that they would never be used as slaves again, the Mercenaries made their way out into the Cosmos, always being careful to exact a price for their services.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Novice. This is a Resource type power.

Wild: When you win an encounter as the defense, you may receive defender rewards as though you were a defensive ally.

Super: When drawing cards for rewards, you may discard any or all of them after looking at the cards.



MERCHANT [O:CI] Plays Cards as Extra Ships Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Hire. As a main player or ally, after encounter cards are selected, but before they are revealed, if you have at least one ship in the encounter, you may use this power to play one or more cards facedown from your hand as hired ships. These cards are treated as extra ships you have in the encounter and may be played in addition to your normal maximum of 4 ships as the offense or an ally. Hired ships cannot be played for their card effect and are not considered part of your hand. Other players may not look at or draw hired ships. Any hired ship that goes to the warp or is removed from the game is discarded. Otherwise, hired ships become normal cards again and return to your hand at the end of the encounter.

History: Hailing from a world incredibly rich in natural resources, the Merchants achieved star travel early in their history thanks to a crew of intergalactic mercenaries who crash-landed on their planet. Since then, the Merchants have frequently used their wealth and natural charisma to hire other raced to do their fighting for them.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Combat type power.

Wild: As a main player or ally, after encounter cards are revealed, add 1 to your side's total for each card in your hand, plus this card.

Super: You may replace any or all hired ships that survive the encounter with any ships you have in the warp on a 1-for-1 basis. Discard the cards representing the replaced hired ships when you do this.



MESMER [O:CD] Can Change Own Artifacts Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Mass Hypnosis. You may use this power to play any artifact card from your hand as though it were any artifact card you name. If you are zapped you return the card to your hand, but may then play it normally, for its original printed effect, if appropriate.

History: Raised in a society where grace and physical charm are equated with success, the unsightly Mesmers have as a defense developed the power to entrance all who might gaze upon them. Now, accomplished performers, the Mesmers can bedazzle a crowd into believing anything. Only long after the glow has faded do the most astute begin to wonder how much was real, and how much imagined.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Resource type power.

Wild: As a main player, after you reveal an attack card with a value lower than 10, you may change it into a negotiate card.

Super: You may use your power to play any non-encounter card from your hand as though it were any artifact card.



MIMIC [M:CC] Copies Opponent’s Hand Size Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Imitate. As a main player, before encounter cards are selected, use this power. If your opponent has more cards in hand than you, draw cards from the deck until you have just as many cards in your hand. If your opponent has fewer cards in hand than you, discard cards of your choice until you have just as few cards in your hand.

History: Evolving from a small insectoid creature that had an incredible gift for imitating the appearance of the other beings on their homeworld, the Mimics have come to be known as some of the greatest copycats in the Cosmos. Watching a Mimic change form is an eye-watering process, a bit like watching a giant, invisible sculptor at work. The Mimics hope that their ability to blend in throughout the Cosmos will allow them to ascend to Cosmic dominance, but only time will tell.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Resource type power.

Wild: Duplicate the effects of a wild flare or artifact card that another player just played. The effects take place as though you had played the card yourself. Then, give this card to the Mimic, or discard it if the Mimic is not playing.

Super: When using your power, you may draw up to or discard down to eight cards instead of your opponent's actual hand size.



MIND [O:FFG] Sees Other Players' Hands Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Knowledge. Before allies are invited in an encounter, you may use this power to look at the entire hand of one of the main players. If you are a main player, you may look at your opponent's hand. You may not tell any other players what cards you see in a player's hand using this power.

History: Springing forth on a triple star system subject to constant energy fluxes, the Mind thrives on shifting wave pulses, ultraviolet rays, and gamma-release explosions. Extreme sensitivity to potentialities has enabled it to view with wisdom (and some skepticism) the threats of its Cosmic competitors.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Resource type power.

Wild: Whenever another player draws a card from the deck, you may draw it instead, look at it, and then give it to him or her. You may not share this information with the other players.

Super: When you aren't a main player, using your power allows you to look at the hands of both main players.



MIRAGE [M:CD] Changes Number of Ships Involved Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Delusion. As a main player, after encounter cards are revealed, use this power to choose any one of your colonies and any one of your opponent’s colonies. Encounter totals are calculated as though the main players’ ships on the chosen colonies were involved instead of their actual ships in the encounter. Allies’ ships count toward the totals normally.

History: Beings of inconstant mass, the Mirage willfully change their form to mislead adversaries about their actual numerical strength. The field of distortion surrounding the Mirage is so powerful, those venturing within it are unable to precisely determine their own appearance. Great fleets have been deluded into thinking they were suddenly outnumbered, and those captains able to survive become forever wary of the misshapen ripples of space seen in the distance.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Novice. This is a Combat type power.

Wild: As a main player or ally, after encounter cards are revealed, you may play one negotiate card from your hand as though it were a reinforcement +3.

Super: When using your power, you may also choose one colony of any one ally to count toward that side's encounter total instead of his or her actual ships in the encounter.



MIRROR [O:FFG] Swaps Digits On Attack Cards Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Reversal. As a main player, after encounter cards are selected but before they are revealed, you may use this power to call for a reversal. This changes the value of any attack cards that are revealed in this encounter by reversing their digits. For example, this would make an attack 15 into a 51, a 20 into an 02, and an 08 into an 80. Resolve the encounter using these reversed values.

History: Springing from a world with such a high surface silver content that everything reflected off everything else, the Mirrors adapted to the difficulty of separating mirror images from reality. They also developed an inner symmetry that confounds their opponents across the Cosmos.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Rules type power.

Wild: As a main player, after encounter cards are revealed, you may change your encounter card into a duplicate of your opponents encounter card.

Super: When declaring a reverse, you may declare that the reverse will affect only your card or your opponent's card. This declaration is still made before cards are revealed, however.



MISER [B:FFG] Gets Second Hand Fantasy Flight

Game Setup: You are dealt two separate eight-card hands. Look at them and choose one to be your "hoard". Place it facedown on this sheet.

You have the power to Hoard. Whenever you wish to play a card, you may use this power to play a card from your hoard instead of your normal hand. You may not add cards you gain to your hoard, and other players may not look at or draw cards from your hoard. If there are no encounter cards left in your hoard, you may reveal it, then discard it and get a new eight-card hoard.

History: Barely eking out a living on their shriveled moon, the Misers for generations secreted away their small annual surplus. But as the hoard grew, so did their greed, until now they prepare to risk their holdings for greater Cosmic booty.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Novice. This is a Resource type power.

Wild: When you draw a new hand or another player takes compensation from you, you may place this card and two others facedown in front of you until afterwards. If compensation is being take from you, the facedown cards may not be taken. If drawing a new hand, you receive a full hand in addition to the facedown cards.

Super: At the start of each of your encounters, you may draw one card from the deck and add it to your hoard.



MITE [M:FFG] Demands Colony or Loss of Cards Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Bluster. As the offense, before allies are invited, if the defense has more than three cards in hand, use this power to bluster. The defense must either discard down to three cards at random or let you establish a colony on the targeted world. If the defense gives you a colony, land any ships you have in the hyperspace gate on the targeted planet. They co-exist with the defense’s ships, which do not go to the warp, and the encounter immediately ends successfully. If the defense discards down to three cards at random, the encounter continues normally.

History: Long stigmatized by others as being pests, these swarms of microscopic Mites have learned to use their omnipresence to advance their collective dream of being accepted and respected in the Cosmic community.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Rules type power.

Wild: As a main player, after alliances are formed, if your opponent has more ships allied with him or her than you have allied with you, you may force all allied ships to return to their colonies.

Super: When you use your power, you take any cards your opponent discards as a result, look at them, and add any or all of them to your hand, discarding the ones you don’t want.



MOOCHER [O:CE] Intrudes Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Barge In. If you lose or fail to deal on the first encounter of your turn, after the encounter you may use this power. Place any empty or unused couch token in any system other than the one in which you lost. Then place one to four of your ships on it from your colonies. Couches are treated as planets in the system where they now exist.

When the offense does not invite you to ally and you have any couch colonies in his or her system, you may use this power to call ”shotgun!” The offense must either let you ally with 1 to 4 ships from those couch colonies, or let you take a card at random from his or her hand.

History: ”Hey, we both have multiple eyes. I must be your long lost third nephew once removed.”

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Rules type power.

Wild: After drawing destiny for your first encounter, you may mooch a colony on an empty planet in the defense's system using your ships from any colonies, ending your turn. Give this flare to the Moocher after use (or discard it, if the Moocher isn't playing).

Super: You may call "shotgun!" on either the offense or the defense. If that main player still refuses to let you ally, you may take two cards from his or her hand instead of one.



MOUTH [M:CS] Gobbles Up Cards Fantasy Flight

You have the Power to Gobble. As a main player, after alliances are formed, whenever a card would be placed in the discard pile by the opposing main player or one of that player’s allies, use this power to gobble up the card instead. When you gobble up a card, it is placed facedown on this sheet.

At the end of the resolution phase, if there are five or more cards on this sheet, use this power to belch one of those cards back up, placing it in your hand. The rest of the cards on this sheet are removed from the game.

History: Although considered more of an annoyance than a genuine threat, the Mouth can devastate the unwary with its constant eating. Anything within reach of a Mouth will likely be swallowed whole in the blink of an eye. Objects too large for a single bite will be systematically devoured to satisfy its voracious hunger.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Resource type power.

Wild: As a main player, after an artifact or reinforcement card is played by your opponent and its effects have been resolved, you may take that card and add it to your hand.

MUCKRAKER [O:CD] Gets Allies Thrown Out Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Slander. As a main player or ally, at the start of the resolution phase, you may use this power to discard one card from your hand and accuse any or all winning allies of subversive intent. Each accused ally may bribe you to cancel your accusation against him or her by giving you, from his or her hand, any non-encounter card or a card of the same type (attack, negotiate, etc.) as the one you discarded. Attack card bribes must have a higher value than the attack card you discarded. Accused allies who cannot or do not bribe you must return their ships to their other colonies, and receive no rewards, colonies, or other benefits of winning the encounter.

If you are an ally and your side won, the main player on your side may exempt any or all allies from this power. You may not accuse yourself.

History: With tongues of silver and hearts of arsenic, the Muckrakers are natural soapbox politicians, never missing an opportunity to sow seeds of discord if it suits their aims. Presenting themselves as watchmen dedicated to protecting their neighbors from flim-flam artists, they secretly scheme to remove those who would stand in their way.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Rules type power.

Wild: As a main player or ally, after alliances are formed, you may force one ally on either side to leave the encounter, returning his or her ships to any of his or her colonies.

Super: When using your power, you may accuse the winning main player in addition to, or instead of, any winning allies. (You still may not accuse yourself.)



MULTITUDE [M:CE] Grows Exponentially Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Exponentiation. Whenever there are no cosmic tokens on this sheet, place one on the ×1 exponential growth factor.

Whenever your color or any special destiny card is drawn from the destiny deck, use this power to double your exponential growth factor (by moving the token from ×1 to ×2, from ×2 to ×4, etc.).

Whenever a wild destiny card is drawn from the destiny deck, use this power to reset your exponential growth factor to ×1.

As a main player or ally, the value of each of your ships participating in the encounter is multiplied by your exponential growth factor when counting toward your side’s total in an encounter.

MUTANT [O:FFG] Maintains 8-Card Hand Fantasy Flight

History: Evolving on a highly radioactive and unshielded moon, the protean Mutants quickly learned to augment their silicon-based heredity. Before long they began to control and accumulate key genetic codes from other life forms, stripping opponents of their most basic defenses in a Mutant drive to transform the Universe.

To motivate a player, give him or her one negotiate card from your hand to add to his or her hand, and give him or her a consequence from your essence card cache to place faceup next to his or her alien sheet. If a motivated player reveals a negotiate card, carry out the incentive the consequence card is returned to you and you receive one reward. If a motivated player does not reveal a negotiate cad, carry out the punishment and leave the consequence card in place to mark the timeout.

A player in a timeout may not participate in the game in any way or communicate with other players, nor may other players communicate with the player int he timeout. If that player is the offense, his or her turn ends. If that player becomes the defense, the offense draws destiny again. At the end of the timeout, the player returns the consequence card to you. In any case where play cannot progress because of timeouts, all other players’ consequence cards are returned to you.

Whenever one or more other players discard negotiate cards, you may use this power to retrieve one of those negotiate cards and add it to your hand. You play and discard negotiates normally.

History: No race may have as strong a sense of community and working toward the common good as the Neighbor. While some races are secretive, solitary, or sensitive, the Neighbor is always interested in what the other races nearby are doing, and they are more than happy to lend another alien their technology or tools.

NIGHTMARE [O:CE] Gives Bad Dreams Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Bad Dreams. Once per encounter, when a main player has declined to invite you to ally, or another player is on the winning side of an encounter when you are on the losing side, you may use this power to place a bad dream from your essence card cache facedown near that player. You cannot give a bad dream card to a player who already has one.

History: Seldom interfering in Cosmic affairs, the Observers have been around for millenia, simply watching the other alien races.

Look through your essence card cache, choose one privilege, and play it faceup next to this sheet. If you are zapped, the privilege you attempted to play is removed from the game.

History: Overheard at the Oligarch’s Elite Club Squash’em: ”It’s not enough to know that I’m controlling the Universe from my holodecks, it’s that I also want to know that my ’friends’ see their lives as immeasurably and permanently less successful than mine.”

Collectible objects: a card at random from a hand, a ship from the warp, the top card from a set of essence cards, an empty planet from that player’s system, a facedown, un-researched tech card, or a token on that player’s alien sheet, including special tokens understood to be on the sheet, e.g. those of Fire Dancer, Grudge, or Particle. You cannot take a token if doing so would make the alien power completely unusable. You may not look at facedown collected objects. Each object you have collected adds 1 to your total when you are the defense.

You may release object(s) as part of a deal with any player. Also, when you are not a main player, during the alliance phase you may release objects in trades. These trades may be suggested by any player, must involve the release of one or more objects, and may include anything that could be given as part of a deal; however, only you may gain a foreign colony from such a trade.

If, after using this power, you do not have any encounter cards in your hand and you are a main player, you draw a new hand.

History: The glorious civilization of the once-noble Edificabi throve for millennia before giving in to the ease of burgling over building. As production of new resources dwindled, their world fell into decline and might have faded from the annals of Cosmic history, had not an unwitting company of spacefarers stumbled upon their troubled neighborhood. Quickly relieving the visitors of every last item of value, the Edificabi – by now reduced to little more than squabbling Pickpockets – saw their chance at a better future.

History: Under no circumstance is meeting a Porcupine a pleasant experience. Although highly intelligent, these creatures declare vendetta with little or no provocation.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Hand Management type power.

Wild: As a main player, after both players reveal attack cards, you may reveal any number of cards in your hand. Then add one to your side's total for each card revealed, including this flare.

The player in that seat takes his or her alien sheet(s) and moves to your seat.

After taking over another player’s seat and taking your turn, play continues from you based on the new seating order.

History: Pretenders instinctually gravitate toward those with power and privilege. Now their sphere of possible targets has widened to include the many life forms of an increasingly complex Cosmos.

There can never be more than four ships on any of your planets (counting yours). When determining landing order, use the timing rules. Your power cannot be zapped, lost, stolen, or copied through any means.

History: When the Cosmos was young, the Pygmies were quite large, living on twin worlds, rich with valuable resources. A gravitational anomaly caused the two planets to collide, scattering the Pygmies among the ruined rubble of their former homes. With so little space to exist, each successive generation of the Pygmy race became physically smaller, but the desire to grow their empire never diminished.

If multiple sources are involved (e.g., the cosmic and reward decks), you must draw the cards as announced but may deliver them as you choose, as long as each player receives the correct number.

If you are due rewards as well, receive yours afterwards. Otherwise, when delivering the others’ rewards you may either retrieve one of your ships from the warp, or draw one extra card from a deck those rewards came from, include that card in your delivery decisions, and keep whichever card is left over for yourself.

History: The Quartermasters were first tasked with ordering supplies for other alien races. They soon found themselves handling transportation and military equipment for the entire Cosmos, taking on more and more responsibility.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Resource type power.

Wild: When a player gains cards as rewards, you may fulfill one or more of the required number with cards of your choice from your hand.

You have the power of Rebirth. For each ship you lose to the warp, you may use this power to draw a card.

For each ship you retrieve from the warp, you may use this power to discard a card of your choice from your hand.

History: The Reborn were once a vibrant, happy race spreading across the Cosmos. But then, one of their scientists discovered a fateful technology that allowed the older members of the race... to transfer their consciousness into the bodies of their offspring.

If you lose a later encounter, discard that alien and draw a new one. This power stays with you while you use the others. Aliens with the power to copy your power may do so (copying both your Reincarnator power and whatever power you are reincarnated as), but if they lose an encounter while doing so they must reincarnate, losing their original power.

A controlled player must abandon home and/or foreign colonies to send the requisite four ships, if necessary. You cannot activate a remote belonging to the opposing main player during an encounter.

After the end of the current encounter, choose a planet in that player’s home system and move it to your home system, sending any ships on it to the warp and making it a new home planet for yourself (although you do not get to establish a colony on it). Then, return your claw card to your hand and choose a card from your hand to become your new claw.

Each stolen planet in your home system counts as a foreign colony towards your win, even if inhabited by other players. If you gain a colony on a stolen planet in your home system, that colony counts as a home colony for you, not a foreign colony.

History: Recently, entire planets have gone missing, leaving behind only orphaned, desolate moons - one of which was marred by enormous claw marks.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Planet type power.

Wild: As a main player or ally, if both revealed encounter cards are attack cards of the same value, your side automatically wins the encounter.

Super: You may use your power any time two main players reveal identical encounter cards. When this happens, choose which main player to steal a plane from (your opponent, if you are a main player). You may still only activate your alien power once per encounter.



THE CULT [O:CE] Recruits Members Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Allegiance. As a main player, before allies are invited, you may use this power to offer your opponent membership in The Cult if he or she is not already a member. If your opponent accepts, he or she places one of his or her ships on this sheet from any colony. Members of The Cult are bound by the following rules:

• When both main players are in The Cult, no alliances are allowed and all revealed encounter cards that are not negotiates become negotiates.
• When only one main player belongs to The Cult, all ships of all members of The Cult that are on foreign colonies in the targeted system but not involved in the encounter will count as 1 each toward The Cult member’s total. These ships will go to the warp if The Cult member loses.
• A Cult member may not willingly ally against another Cult member.
• A game win for a member of The Cult is a win for all members of The Cult.

When any other member of The Cult is a main player, before allies are invited, that player may lose four ships to the warp and discard four cards from his or her hand to renounce The Cult. His or her ship on this sheet returns to any colony. That player is no longer a member.

History: Once a religious retreat, The Cult is now expanding their fervor to other Cosmic systems.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Rules type power.

Wild: As a main player, after encounter cards are selected but before they are revealed, you may play this flare. All of your ships on foreign colonies in the opponent's system count toward your total but will not be lost to the warp if you lose the encounter.

Super: You may cancel another player's attempt to renounce The Cult.

At the start of any turn, you may denounce and remove any other player from The Cult. His or her ship on your sheet returns to one of his or her colonies.



TICK-TOCK [M:FFG] Limits Length of Game Fantasy Flight

Game setup: Place ten tokens on this sheet (eight if playing with four planets per player).

You have the power of Patience. Each time any player wins an encounter as the defense or a successful deal is made between any two players, use this power to discard one token from this sheet. If there are no more tokens on this sheet, you immediately win the game. You may still win the game via the normal method.

History: Lurking in the depths of space-time beyond even the warp itself, this mechanical race waits patiently for the heat-death of the Universe, when it will rule over the strange abyss that remains. In the meantime, they subtly turn the races of the Universe against each other to prevent them from discovering a way to prevent the inevitable.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Alternate Win type power.

Wild: Each time the discard pile is shuffled to create a new deck, you may immediately establish a colony on any one of your opponents' home planets with up to four of your ships.

Super: Each time you win a challenge or make a deal, you may send one of your ships to the warp to discard a token from your alien sheet. This is in addition to any tokens you may discard through normal use of your power.



TIDE [M:CS] Makes Players Draw or Discard Fantasy Flight

Game Setup: Place two cosmic tokens on this sheet.

You have the power to Ebb and Flow. After you win an encounter as a main player, use this power to place one token on this sheet. Then, you and each of your allies draw one card from the deck for each token on this sheet.

After you lose an encounter as a main player, if there is more than one token on this sheet, use this power to discard one token from this sheet. Then, the opposing main player and each of his or her allies must discard one card of their choice from their hands for each token on this sheet.

History: The Tide’s cultural philosophy is simple: go with the flow. From an early age, members of this Tide’s army are trained to react and respond to even the slightest change of plans. While some may consider the Tide’s approach to military and diplomatic matters wishy-washy, the Tide seem resolute to vacillate on issues and continue to change their minds at a moment’s notice.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Resource type power.

Wild: As an ally, if you receive rewards, you may receive four rewards regardless of how many ships you had in the encounter.

Super: You may place one token on your sheet.



TORTOISE [M:CE] Gets a Late Start Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Dawdle. At the start of each of your turns, use this power to receive four rewards and end your turn.

Each time you draw a card as a reward, draw the top card from an appropriate deck or discard pile. Any or all cards you draw as rewards may be placed facedown on this sheet in your ”shell.” Your shell is not part of your hand and may not be used until the end of the game, but you may look at it at any time.

When the game ends, if you have not lost this power, add all cards in your shell to your hand. If you are not one of the winners, take one final turn. You cannot use this power to gain rewards and no other players may become the offense regardless of other game effects. You may have as many encounters as you can, even if they are not successful and even if you lose this power, until you either run out of encounter cards or become a winner, sharing the win with all other players who are now achieving a victory condition, if any.

Whenever you are part of a shared win, if you have not lost this power you may either accept the shared win or attempt to win alone by having one more encounter (if you still have an encounter card). Other players who were part of the shared win may not ally with you. If you gain a foreign colony, you win alone. If not, you lose the game and the other winner(s) win.

History: The Tortoises shock all by moving the finish line to where they alone can venture.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Extra Turn type power.

Wild: On your turn, if you have had two successful encounters, you may have a third if you have encounter cards.

Super: As the defense, you may refuse to allow the offense to encounter you. The offense must encounter a different player and, if required to use destiny, must draw destiny again until he or she is able to encounter a different player.



TOURIST [B:CD] Travels on Cruise Liner Fantasy Flight

Game Setup: Place the cruise liner token in your system. Now and each time the cruise liner enters your system, you may move up to four of your ships from your home colonies onto it, or vice versa.

You have the power to Sightsee. At the end of the destiny phase, if any hazard warnings were drawn during this encounter, use this power to send one of your ships to the warp from the cruise liner.

If no hazard warnings were drawn, use this power to move the cruise liner one system clockwise or counterclockwise. Then, if the cruise liner is in the defense’s system and you do not already have a colony in that system, you may use this power to disembark all of your ships from the cruise liner to any one planet there. If for any reason you do not disembark, you may use this power to send a postcard home. Return one ship from the cruise liner to any of your colonies, and then take a card at random from the hand of that system’s player.

History: Among the most curious of all the races in the Cosmos, the Tourists have no interest in conquest. They’d rather see everything, though sometimes their visits stretch on for millennia. Their neighbors often mistake these visits for invasions. Rest assured, those really are flashbulbs and loud floral prints, not explosives and camouflage!

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Resource type power.

Wild: You may look at the top card of any deck, or any facedown card or alien sheet, without showing it to anyone else.

Super: After your cruise liner finishes moving, you may move some of your ships onto it from a colony in the same system, even if it's not your home system.



TRADER [O:FFG] Trades Hands with Opponent Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Transference. As a main player, before encounter cards are selected, you may use this power to trade hands with your opponent. You each then keep the new hand.

History: Originating on a Trojan Cloud in a heavily traveled star system, the crafty Traders learned to use the most valuable debris which drifted their way and discard the rest. As their numbers grew, however, they began to search out markets for their low-grade material. With a wealth of resources always at hand, they became adept merchants and soon were carefully scrutinizing all galactic transactions. Now they have begun to parlay their economic foundation into Cosmic control.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Novice. This is a Resource type power.

Wild: As a main player, before alliances are declared, you may draw one card at random from your opponent's hand and add it to your hand. You must then give your opponent one card of your choice (even the card you just drew) in return.

Super: You may use your power to trade hands with any player, not just your opponent.



TRICKSTER [O:CC] Wins Encounters 50% of the Time Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Possibilities. As a main player, after alliances are formed, you may use this power to manipulate probability instead of having a normal encounter. If you do so, take a cosmic token and conceal it secretly in one of your hands. The other main player then chooses one of your closed fists. You then open both of your fists, revealing which hand held the token. If your opponent chose the hand containing the token, you lose the encounter. If he or she chose your empty hand, you win the encounter. In either case, the resolution phase is then carried out as normal.

History: The Tricksters are a race of incredibly powerful beings, able to manipulate the very fabric of the Cosmos with their minds without ever leaving their homeworld. Fortunately, they have few dreams of conquest, instead preferring to select members of other alien races to toy with. Still, given their power, there’s always the chance that they could take over the Cosmos by accident.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Novice. This is a Combat type power.

Wild: As a main player or ally, after encounter cards are revealed, flip a coin. If it lands on heads, add 10 to your side's total. If the coin lands on tails, subtract 10 from your side's total.

Super: You may use your power after losing an encounter instead of before cards are selected. The outcome of your power replaces the outcome of the encounter.



TRIPLER [M:FFG] Low Cards Triple, High Cards 1/3 Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Thrice. As a main player, after you reveal an attack card, use this power to adjust its value. If the card's value is 10 or less, triple its value. If the card's value is more than 10, divide its value by three (rounded up).

History: Millennia of obsessive racing and betting has given the Triplers a knack for making something out of nothing. The unfortunate downside of such flimflammery is that they have become equally prone to making nothing out of something. The Triplers now wish to redefine the Universe as an opportunity for their final race, forcing all other beings to bet everything they have on one final mad dash across the Cosmos.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Combat type power.

Wild: As a main player, after your opponent reveals an attack card or 15 or higher, you may divide that attack card's value by 3 (rounding up) before any other effects are applied.

Super: When you use your power, you may triple the value of any attack cards that are 13 or less instead of 10 or less.



TYRANT [M:CS] Claims Other Players’ Ships Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Subjugate. As a main player, when you win an encounter after revealing an attack card, use this power to subjugate one involved ship from each player on the losing side. Subjugated ships are captured and placed on this sheet instead of being sent to the warp.

When you are determined to be the defense against a player whose ships you have subjugated, use this power to force that player to discard one card at random for each of his or her subjugated ships.

When you are the offense and having an encounter with a player whose ships you have subjugated, after you reveal an attack card, use this power to add the number of that player’s subjugated ships to your total.

When you would be forced to send ships to the warp, you may choose to send subjugated ships to the warp instead. You may choose to release subjugated ships as part of a deal. When a ship is removed from this sheet, it is no longer subjugated.

History: It is no surprise that upon the arrival of the Tyrant into a new sector of space, other races begin to suddenly make travel plans to distant regions. The Tyrants are one of the most despised races in the Cosmos given their brutal leadership style, which often ends in their victims’ indentured servitude.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Resource type power.

Wild: As an ally, at the end of the encounter, you may take one card at random from the hand of each other player who sent one or more ships to the warp during the resolution phase.

Super: During your regroup phase, you may subjugate one ship from the warp belonging to each player with ships in the warp and place those ships on your sheet.



USURPER [O:CD] Makes Allies Play Encounter Cards Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Accroach. As a main player, you may use this power immediately after encounter cards are selected (before any other game effects that apply after card selection). Every ally must play one encounter card facedown from his or her hand (first drawing a new hand if out of encounter cards). Look at the cards played by your allies. You may select one of them to replace your encounter card. You may select one of the opposing allies’ cards (without looking at them) to replace your opponent’s card. All replaced and unused cards return to their owners’ hands and the encounter continues.

If a main player’s encounter card selection is forced by a game effect such as Oracle, Magician, or Visionary, this power does not affect his or her allies.

History: Tactical advisors once employed by many great races, the Usurpers seized power in a bloodless coup. Through mind control techniques and technologies, they subtly wrest control of power from their enemies, causing others to achieve their goals for them. Even allies are gently forced to commit resources on their behalf, for the Usurpers trust no one but themselves.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Rules type power.

Wild: As a main player, before allies are invited, you may choose to have the outcome of the encounter be decided based solely on the number of allies' ships per side. Whichever side has the most ships from allies will win the encounter (defense wins ties). Skip the planning and reveal phases.

Super: You may look at the cards played by the opposing allies before deciding whether to replace your opponent's card.



VACUUM [M:FFG] Takes Other Ships to Warp Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Catharsis. Whenever you lose ships to the warp, use this power to take along up to an equal number of other ships. You specify which players must lose them, and how many each player must lose. The targeted players decide which colony or colonies the ships are taken from. Ships lost to the Vacuum this way are in addition to any ships normally lost in an encounter.

History: Suffering from severe necrophobia, the panicky Vacuum clings to others in a desperate attempt to save itself from the warp. Succeeding only in dragging innocent bystanders along, it takes solace in not going to its doom alone.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Novice. This is a Rules type power.

Wild: For each main player other than you who reveals an attack card, you may retrieve one ship from the warp.

Super: You may choose which opposing ships are lost to the warp when using your power.



VIRUS [M:FFG] Multiplies in Attack Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Multiply. As a main player, after you reveal an attack card in an encounter, use this power to multiply the number of ships you have in the encounter times the value of your card instead of adding. Your allies' ships are still added to your total as usual.

History: Able to multiply rapidly in the presence of other life forms, the Virus soon overwhelmed its own planets and now waits for opportunities to proliferate throughout the Universe.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Combat type power.

Wild: As a main player you may multiply the number of ships you have in the encounter by the number of ships allied with you instead of adding them.

Super: You may multiply the total of all ships on your side by your attack card when using your power, not just your own.



VISIONARY [O:CC] Dictates Encounter Card Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Perception. As a main player, before encounter cards are selected, you may use this power to specify an encounter card that your opponent must play (for instance: ”You will play an attack 06”). If your opponent does not have such a card, he or she may play any encounter card he or she wishes. If your opponent dos have the card, however, he or she must play it unless prevented by another player.

History: Once an ancient race of wandering fortune tellers, the Visionaries have recently stirred debate among philosophers throughout the Cosmos. Does the mystic sight of the Visionary merely foretell the future, or does it shape it? This intellectual debate between advocates of causationalism and free will has tended to mask the alarming growth of the Visionary empire. As for the Visionaries themselves, they loathe logic and philosophy, preferring a more intuitive approach to the problems of Cosmic domination.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Rules type power.

Wild: As a main player, during any phase, name a specific card. Each player then secretly shows you that card if he or she has it or any other card if he or she doesn't have it.

Super: You may use your power even if you are not a main player. You must specify which main player you are using your power against.



VOID [M:FFG] Eradicates Opponents' Ships Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Eradicate. As a main player, when you win an encounter, use this power to remove the losing side's ships from the game rather than sending them to the warp. A player cannot be reduced to fewer ships than the number of foreign colonies needed to win the game. Any eradicated ships that would reduce a player below this number are sent to the warp as normal.

History: Taught from vortexhood that no other intelligent life existed, the Voids were deeply offended to learn of alien races. They are now on a holy campaign to cleanse the heavens of all gross, material beings.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Rules type power.

Wild: Once per encounter, you may send one of your ships not in the encounter to the warp to cancel the effect of any one artifact card. The artifact card is discarded as normal.

Super: You may use your power as an ally.



VOX [O:CS] Goes Up to Eleven Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Volume. As a main player or offensive ally, after encounter cards are revealed, you may use this power to choose one revealed attack card with a value lower than 11. That card goes up to 11.

History: The Vox pride themselves on being among the loudest species in the Cosmos. In Vox society, the louder the better. Leadership is often determined by shouting matches to see who can drown out the others for dominance. Minor members of society generally open for more prominent members before such a shouting match, getting the crowd warmed up for the main act to follow.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Novice. This is a Combat type power.

Wild: As an ally, you may add 11 to your side's total instead of applying the number of ships you have in the encounter.

Super: When drawing a new hand of cards, you may draw up to 11 cards.



VOYAGER [O:CD] Can Have a Colony in the Warp Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Journey. At the start of your turn, you may use this power to move one of your home planets into the warp if you do not already have one there, or to exchange one of your home planets with one of your planets in the warp. Ships on that planet are both on a colony and in the warp, and may/must leave through all the usual ways for both. Ships sent to the warp do not land on the planet, but ships returning to colonies may go to a colony already on the warp-world.

Your colony on a warp-world counts as both a foreign and home colony, but other players’ colonies there count as neither. If this sheet is lost or turned facedown, return the warp-world to your system.

History: Fearless adventurers, the Voyagers traveled to the far reaches of the Cosmos, seeking answers to questions long forgotten. Hungry for new revelations, the Voyagers discovered how to access the unfathomable depths of the warp itself, establishing a presence there. With the entrance to the warp breached, others have followed the Voyagers, but none have had the same success conquering its mysteries.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Planet type power.

Wild: You may send one card from your hand (except this flare) to visit the warp, facedown. Return any of these visiting cards to your hand later at any time(s). If you lose this flare, your visiting cards are discarded.

Super: You may move a second one of your home planets into the warp.



VULCH [M:FFG] Collects Discarded Artifacts Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Salvage. Whenever any other player discards an artifact card (whether after playing it or not), use this power to add the artifact to your hand. Any artifact cards you play are discarded as normal and cannot be salvaged.

If you draw a new hand, you keep your old artifacts after revealing them, then draw eight new cards in addition to the artifacts.

History: Originally developing as a structured, bureaucratic race, only the Vulches who were most able to grasp new opportunities rose to the top. Over millions of years, this inbred scavenging talent flourished and spread throughout the race. Now, Vulches are prepared to use the discarded refuse of others to achieve their goal of universal supremacy.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Novice. This is a Resource type power.

Wild: If you win an encounter (or make a deal) as a main player, your opponent gives you his hand one card at a time. Discard each card until you get one you want. You put that card in your hand and your opponent keeps what's left, if any.

Super: You may use your power to collect any discarded flares as well as artifacts.



WARHAWK [M:CC] Never Negotiates Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Attack. As a main player, when your opponent reveals a negotiate card, use this power to change it into an attack 00.

As a main player, when you reveal a negotiate card, use this power to change it into a morph card.

As a main player, if both you and your opponent reveal negotiate cards, use this power to change both negotiates into attack 00 cards.

History: The Warhawks rush into combat with no thoughts of surrender. Negotiation is not a concept they understand, and the entire Warhawk society is built upon the notion of fight or die.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Combat type power.

Wild: At the start of any encounter, discard a negotiate card from your hand and draw two cards from the deck to replace it.

Super: If you play a negotiate card and lose the encounter or fail to make a deal, you collect compensation.



WARPISH [M:FFG] Adds Ships in Warp to Total Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Necromancy. As a main player, after you reveal an attack card in an encounter, use this power to add 1 to your total for each ship (yours or otherwise) in the warp.

History: Born of the slime and unpalatable scum in the most repulsive bars on dying planets, the Warpish seeks the pall of miserable places. Now it has found comfort in the despairing ambiance of the Cosmic warp.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Expert. This is a Combat type power.

Wild: As a main player, after cards are revealed, you may add 1 to your side's total for each ship you have in the warp.

WARRIOR [M:FFG] Adds Experience Points Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Mastery. After an encounter in which you were a main player, add one token to this sheet if you won that encounter (or made a deal during it) or two tokens if you lost that encounter (or failed to make a deal during it). In either case, add one extra token if playing with four planets per player.

As a main player, after you reveal an attack card in an encounter, use this power to add 1 to your total for each token you have on this sheet. Tokens are not discarded from this sheet after doing so.

History: Once considered ferocious but dull-witted by more ”enlightened” races, the Warrior clans were bred as fighting stock for the petty squabbles of their lords. Throughout the ages, however, they have learned the value of both defeat and victory. This wisdom gives them mastery over those who would sneer at their potential.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Novice. This is a Combat type power.

Wild: When you are the defense, immediately after the encounter is over, you may encounter the offense in his or her home system. After your encounter, the normal order of play continues where it left off.

Super: You may use your power to add your tokens to your side's total even as an ally.



WHIRLIGIG [O:CD] Mixes Two Hands Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Swirl. As a main player, during the planning phase, you may use this power to mix the other main player’s hand with your own. You and your opponent put your hands facedown on the table, and you mix them together. Then, choose how they will be returned:

• Even Steven: Both players get an equal number of cards. If there is an odd number, you get the extra card. • As Is: Each player gets the same number of cards they originally had. • Switcheroo: Each player gets the number of cards the other player originally had.

Once you decide, the other main player takes his or her assigned number of cards at random from the mixed hands. You take the rest.

History: A seemingly wacky species, the Whirligigs are actually quite clever. As they swirl from planet to planet, those they encounter are left befuddled. Less becomes more, high becomes low, and good becomes bad. The uncertainty caused when the Whirligigs come to call lingers long after they have left.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Novice. This is a Resource type power. illustrated by Andrew Olson

Wild: As a main player, during the planning phase, you may take one card at random from your opponent's hand and mix it with any one card from your own hand. Your opponent chooses which card to take back.

Super: When using your power, you may look at your opponent's hand before mixing the cards together.



WILL [M:FFG] Not Controlled by Destiny Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Choice. As the offense, after you draw from the destiny deck, use this power to encounter any alien on any planet of your choice instead of encountering the alien mandated by the drawn destiny card (for example, you could choose to encounter the Virus' ships on the Mind's planet, even if you were actually directed to have an encounter with the Oracle by the destiny card). Any other effects caused by the drawn destiny card still take place as usual.

History: Arising on a cold and barren asteroid, the Wills gave no thought to legal niceties in their relentless struggle to capture the faint rays of a dying star. Unfairly charged with preying upon the weak, they wish only to find locations in which they may spread their solar membranes, unopposed.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Novice. This is a Rules type power.

Wild: As the offense, when you draw a player's color from the destiny deck, you may have an encounter with that player in any system, not just his or her home system.

Super: You may look at any one other player's hand before deciding who to encounter.



WINNER [M:CA] Gains Extra Colonies Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Win More. As a main player, after both players reveal attack cards and you win the encounter by 10 or more, use this power to immediately gain one free foreign colony on a planet of your choice in any system.

History: From the time their ancestors crawled out of the crystal blue sea on a paradisiacal world under a particularly lucky sun, the Winners have always been incredibly fortunate. Random factors have a bizarre tendency to go their way, and the stars always seem to shine down just a little bit brighter on them. Now, as they casually sail out into the Cosmos under a favorable solar wind, they know that they will soon take their place as the rulers of the Universe. After all, they’re Winners – it’s what they do

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Rules type power.

Wild: At the start of your turn, gain a free colony on a planet of your choice in any system. Afterwards, give this flare to the Winner if he is player. Otherwise, discard it.

Super: When using your power, you receive a free colony for each set of 10 (rounded down) you win the encounter by.



WORM [O:CS] Re-Aims Hyperspace Gate Fantasy Flight

Game Setup: You may distribute your ships among your planets however you wish as long as there is at least one ship on each planet.

You have the power to Tunnel. As a main player, after encounter cards are revealed, you may use this power to re-aim the hyperspace gate anywhere the offense can have a legal encounter against the defense (in any system), as long as the offense does not already have a colony there. All offensive and allied ships move along with the gate and the encounter continues normally.

History: Evolving beneath the rolling sands of the deserts of their home worlds, the Worms became adept at mounting surprise attacks and befuddling aggressors. As this fledgling race expands into the Cosmos, no alien knows where they will surface next.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Rules type power.

Wild: At the start of your turn, you may move ships from any of your colonies to one planet in your home system that does not have a colony.

Super: You may use your power as an ally.



WORMHOLE [O:CS] Commits Ships from Warp Fantasy Flight

You have the power to Translocate. As the offense or an ally, when committing ships to an encounter, you may use this power to commit your ships from the warp and/or from your colonies. As a main player, whenever one of your allies commits ships to the encounter, you may use this power to allow that ally to commit those ships from the warp and/or from his or her colonies.

This power does not allow players to exceed the normal limit of four ships in the encounter.

History: The bizarre Wormhole is renowned for its ability to seemingly appear out of nowhere. In fact, the Wormhole has the socially awkward distinction of being the race to startle more unassuming aliens than any other.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Resource type power.

Wild: As an ally, after you commit one or more ships to an encounter, you may retrieve up to the same number of your ships from the warp and add them to the encounter. This may result in you having more than four ships in the encounter.

Super: As a main player, after alliances are formed, you may release up to four ships from the warp belonging to any one player who has ships in the encounter (even yourself). Add these ships to any ships that player already has involved in the encounter.



XENOPHILE [M:CC] Gains Strength from Tourists Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Welcoming. As a main player, after both main players reveal attack cards, use this power to add or subtract 3 from your side’s total for each foreign colony in your home system.

You do not lose your power because of having too few home colonies.

History: One of the most gregarious, friendliest races in the universe, the Xenophiles have had their homeworld invaded 20 times by hostile aliens - and never once noticed. Orders given to them by the invaders were cheerfully carried out, until the invaders eventually grew exasperated with the relentlessly cheerful Xenophiles and left of their own accord. The Xenophiles, for their part, are looking forward to the next batch of ”tourists” who they can make feel at home.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Novice. This is a Combat type power.

Wild: As a main player, after both players reveal attack cards, add 1 to your side's total for every foreign colony in your home system.

YIN-YANG [O:CD] Allies with Both Sides Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Balance. When you are invited to join both sides of an encounter, you may use this power to ally with both sides. If you ally with both sides and the defense loses, for each ship you have allied with the offense, the defense may keep one of his or her losing ships on the planet instead of sending it to the warp. If you ally with both sides and the offense loses, for each ship you have allied with the defense, the offense may receive one reward.

When a main player declines to invite you to ally, you may give that player one of your yin-yang tokens. Each main player who has a yin-yang token when his or her opponent loses ships to the warp from the encounter must lose an equal number of ships from his or her colonies. At the end of each encounter, place both yin-yang tokens on this sheet.

History: For as long as intelligent life has existed, the mysterious aliens known only as the Yin-Yangs have garnered influence and control over the positive and the negative, the masculine and the feminine, and the meek and the bold aspects of the Cosmos. Through their efforts in balancing power, they are certain to maintain equilibrium with their enemies.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Advanced. This is a Alliance type power.

Wild: When you lose ships to the warp, you may choose another player who, in your opinion, caused you to lose those ships. That player loses the same number of ships as you did.

Super: When you are allied on both sides of an encounter, you may return your losing ships to any of your colonies instead of sending them to the warp.



ZOMBIE [M:FFG] Never Goes to Warp Fantasy Flight

You have the power of Immortality. Whenever you should lose ships to the warp, use this power to instead return them to any of your colonies and keep using them.

In addition, you may free any player's ships from the warp (back to any colonies he or she has) as part of a deal.

History: Shadowy forms on a dark and murky world, Zombies prized all sources of energy. They could flourish only by careful recycling of their own kind. Living on decomposed organic matter, they abhor the needless waste of war and have developed effective techniques to make sure their numbers will not be reduced.

Notes: The recommended experience level for this power is Novice. This is a Resource type power.

Wild: Each time you lose ships to the warp, you may prevent one of your ships from going to the warp, instead returning it to one of your colonies.

Super: Each player who allies with you during an encounter may retrieve one ship from the warp (if any) and place it in the encounter. This ship does not count towards a player's normal limit of four ships in an encounter.
