Demon Lǚ Bù 鬼吕布

Posted by Ricky Chua On 10:31 PM 4 comments
Translated Description:
"The Wraith of the White Gate 白门恶鬼 (bái mén è guǐ)"

Why is he a Demon:
The white gate was where Lu Bu ultimately might his death under the hands of Cao Cao 曹操. In all fairness, Demi-God Lu Bu is awesome enough and there really is no need for this watered-down version. I guess in this case he is demoted from Godly status down to a scary, but not lethal, ghost. It does not help that he looks like a purple cockroach dressed for a heavy metal concert. Yes you can probably tell that I seriously do not have the answer to this question of why he is a demon.



Character ability 1: [Enforced ability] Strike the Halberd 射戟 (shè jǐ)
During the action phase, your ATTACK 杀 cannot be dodged in the following scenario: Your target is within you attacking range and, at the same time, you are within your target's attacking range.

Character ability 2: Final Execution 绝戮 (jué lù)
When your ATTACK card used is your last on-hand card, your attacking range is unlimited and this ATTACK can target up to 2 players.

Usage Comments:
"Strike the Halberd" actually punishes those who have huge attacking ranges. As long as you can reach that player, its free-frag! Toss this together with Demon Hua Xiong 鬼华雄 on your team and you could have a very interesting play-off. Get Demon Hua Xiong to forcefully equip a long range weapon unto your target and watch your target become your sitting duck.

"Final Execution" is a lesser rip-off of Heaven Scorcher Halberd's ability and Tai Shi Ci 太史慈's ability. This ability does not particularly appeal to a tactical player like me because it requires me to go naked without cards. Still, this ability will become useful in games with 6 or more players where range is a problem, but i do not see how you can escape unscathed by your next turn with a naked hand!
