Catlovers … stand free to worship aristocratic independence, self-respect, and individual personality joined to extreme grace and beauty as typified by the cool, lithe, cynical, and unconquered lord of the housetops.
~ H. P. Lovecraft
One day only Kickstarter for the Cthulhu Wars: Bubastis Faction, a faction of cats.
Bubastis is probably the weirdest faction of them all. It doesn’t have any cultists. It doesn’t have a Great Old One. It does have Bastet, an Elder God (not quite the same). Like other factions it has 6 spellbooks that are gained in the normal way (though of course with her own unique requirements). One of her most unusual features is that it has a separate map tile representing the Moon. This Moon is the Bubastis starting area. It counts as a Bubastis-controlled gate for all purposes, except that it can’t be seized by another faction. No other gate can be built or moved there (except Yog-Sothoth via the Catnapping spellbook). Bubastis units can move and be pained freely between the Moon and any other map area. Other factions can move or be pained FROM the Moon to the main map area, but they can’t move TO the Moon on their own.
Since your cats can’t build or occupy gates, the Moon is their only gate throughout the game.
This faction is extremely aggressive. They don’t play “defense” because they want to always be in your areas causing trouble. Like kittens I guess. And Bubastis is hard to KO, because you can’t steal her gates. You have to just kill the kitties one by one.
