The WARP Moon Powers

You have the power to shield. Whenever a player draws your color in Destiny, they must challenge one of the moons in your system. They may only make a challenge against a planet base if they already occupy a moon or planet base in your system. When a player makes a challenge against an external system where you have a base and they do not, they must challenge one of the moons in that system.

You may not look at any secret or unrevealed moons that are out of the game.

History: The Aspects revered and worshiped their moon as a god. When it cycled through its phases, the Aspects cycled with it.

As the defender, you may choose to play out the challenge or let the attacker join you. Immediate moons take effect again when a new player lands, continuing moons affect all players on them and secret moons take effect when any player reveals them. If a conflict results, it favors you. A player attacking a shared moon picks one defender. You may offer cohabitation rights in a deal. Any number of players may share a moon with you, but if you leave, remaining players must make a moon challenge to determine who stays. (The last player who arrived is the attacker.

Each moon is associated with one of your bases, and you may occupy any of these moons when you desire, but you may not reveal them until the associated moons is attacked - even if they are immediate moons. Each time you land on an outside base, that base acquires the properties of a new random moon. If it is an immediate moon, use it and discard it.

On any subsequent challenge while you occupy the moon, you may flip it over, discarding the top moon and occupying the one underneath. Once this moon has been flipped you may repeat the process.

Another player may offer you a base, cards, or Lucre to change your mind about a moon he has landed on after you have made your decision. If you accept his offer, a moon you had nullified takes effect normally, and a moon that you did not stop has no effect. When a player lands on a secret moon, you may look at it, and your decision determines whether or not it will take effect when he reveals it. If you lose your power (including to a Cosmic Zap), all continuing moons that are occupied are in effect, regardless of whether you had nullified them, and any secret moon that you had nullified may be used normally.

PHASE [B:Warp:M] CYCLES MOONS Jack Reda (Moons)

You have the power of change. At the start of the game cover each planet in your system with a Blue moon. On each turn, flip one moon over and play its results (starting with the far left moon). Each subsequent turn, reveal the next moon, and flip the previous one back over. If you occupy a moon, you may elect not to reveal it when its turn comes up. You may look at any moon at any time. Other players must use the moons effects if they occupy the base and the moon is revealed, but may not look at the moon ahead of time. The moon is only revealed during its phase.

The tokens are not at risk. The new value may be added or subtracted at any time during the challenge.

History: Born on a planet with 42 moons (15 of which have their own moon, of which 3 have tertiary moons) the Tide have learned to use the gravitational pull of their moons to tremendous effect.
