SETUP

Put 3 Presenceicon.png on your starting board: 1 in the highest-numbered Sands, 2 in the lowest-numbered Mountain.

PLAY STYLE

Incredibly good at handling Explorericon.png, clearing newly-Explored lands of Invaders so they don't Build there. Not nearly so good at dealing with Townicon.png/Cityicon.png.

Can focus on Energy and largely forego its Innate Power, focus on Plays to aim for mid-to-high Innate thresholds, or strike a more balanced path. Adds at most 1 Presenceicon.png per turn, so there won't be time to do it all.

SPECIAL RULES

A STIFF WIND AT THEIR BACKS After you Add Presenceicon.png during Growth, Push up to 1 Explorericon.png/Dahanicon.png from that land.

(Let other players know this is due to your Special Rule, so they know you're still in the Spirit Phase and not using a Fasticon.png power.)

From the Spirit Panel

Sun-Bright Whirlwind is a Spirit of sun-warmed and gusting air. It spins leaves and dust into miniature cyclones, playfully snatches at small unsecured objects, and sometimes - when joyful, or upset, or full of the vigor of nature - howls across the island, bending trees and abrading the landscape with pebbles, twigs, shells, and the occasional bird nest.

Some Dahan take its appearance as a good sign for travel, and others have tried asking it to help bring messages to those far away - with mixed success, as it tends to lightly prank the recipients by mixing the messages' words all about.

Design Lore

Sun-Bright Whirlwind is all about control and thrives with utility Powers, enabling fellow Spirits to reach new heights.
