"The Dancer with Unrivaled Beauty 绝世的舞姬 (jué shì dè wǔ jì)"
Why is she an SP character?
I would love to say that some sexually-charged up SGS fanatic demanded for a sexier Diao Chan from YOKA. I would also love to say that YOKA is giving SGS a complete erotica makeover and the next character is Zhen Ji 甄姬 in a bikini.
But no, these aren't the reasons why this 2nd version of Diao Chan was released. The reason is as bland as chewing on cardboard.
After the 1st issue of Zhuo You Zhi 桌游志 (ZYZ) was published, it was said that YOKA decided to keep with the promotion of giving away a new character card with every issue. They had on hand this alternate drawing of Diao Chan and decided to release it with the 2nd issue of ZYZ. That's all.
Bummer. I would have loved to see Sun Shang Xiang in a bunny suit.
Character ability 1: "Seed of Animosity 离间 (lí jiān)"
During your action phase, you can discard one card (either on-hand or equipped) and select two male characters to undergo DUEL 决斗 with each other. This ability cannot be neutralized using NEGATE 无懈可击. Limited to one use per turn.
Character ability 2: "Envious Moon 闭月 (bì yuè)"
At the end of your turn (after the discard phase), you can draw one additional card from the deck.
What's different from the original character?
Only the drawing has changed. This alternate drawing has been affectionately referred to as the "out-of-bathroom" Diao Chan 出浴貂蝉. But why didn't they just give her a bathrobe and nothing else then? Aww!!!
Everything else about this character is identical to the original Diao Chan. Her abilities and allegiance remain the same, thus this character would inconspicuously blend into your current set unnoticed.
How to obtain this character?
Purchase ZYZ magazine issue #3 (March 2011). This issue is also out of print. You can probably get your hands on it if you got LOTS of dough to spare.
