Natayla Joins the Fight

Yet another Matriarchy slash Union character was just announced today, Natayla, an apparent “Epic Hero”.

Here is more from FFG: Natalya is an Epic Hero and comes with additional rules for inclusion in your team. Her primary loyalty is to Oksana, whom she believes to be a reborn hero of the bylinas in the flesh. This means she can serve the Matriarchy, or follow Oksana to the Union. Or with the rules for the UMTOMA, Natalya can serve the tenuous alliance between Matriarchy and Union forces, created to oppose the Reich and Shogunate forces united by the Nippon Accord.

Check out more after the jump…

Here is a link to the original FFG post: Abandoned Technologies Reclaimed. She looks like she’s going to be a very strong character, and I’m really starting to worry if playing without an Epic Hero will become pointless. Game balance is always a concern when fielding such powerful characters, but then again Tannhauser has always had balance issues. Maybe it’s time to just look at them as a “game mechanic” rather then a flaw. Well we all have to see how this shakes out.

Natayla seems to be based on the concept art for the “Zor’ka” prototypes. I’ll post a picture of it as soon as it’s available.
