Today we're uncovering our first Cunning based Legend for Conan: Savage Legends – Ascalante, Baron of Thune.
Ascalante is a former Aquilonian count whose lands were forfeited, forcing him into a life of banditry. He became the leader of a band of outlaws that raided caravans in the desert. During one such raid he captured the sorcerer Thoth-Amon and blackmailed him into servitude. Ascalante first appears in The Phoenix and the Sword, where he coordinates a coup led by the so-called “rebel four” against King Conan. Long relying on his cunning ways, Ascalante plans to betray even his own co-conspirators and place himself on the throne once their plot is complete. Being one to only fight on his own terms, Ascalante waits until Conan is wounded before finally facing him.
Ascalante tends to use tricks and deception in combat rather than rely purely on skill. Ascalante has the Rebel, Thief, and Mercenary traits which gives him access to a band of cutthroat Companions who are almost as cunning and underhanded as himself.
With his ability to force his opponent to reveal their tactics card before choosing his own, Ascalante can control the flow of the battle, always giving himself an edge. And with his affinity for Leadership based items, Ascalante can command his Companions to do his bidding, rather than risk his own precious hide in combat. If you enjoy tricks, deception, and deceit then Ascalante is the Legend for you!
