The blank page really can't be seen by mobile to find the image. You will need a PC, or wait a little and I will be posting both the art and the card. ;)

The "blank" page is not the last one you are a few steps short of the end.

Any speculation on what she is i would guess a witch?

Question- Iddi is Necrotic, right? That would explain the palindrome name and, erm, nature of the art. But she's conspicuously... eyed. I see no gems. Is she a human siding with the necrotics or something, and took one of their names, or...?

Doesn't look very Necrotic to me. If I was to risk a guess, I would say that she's somewhat related to the Alternate Art Vampire Princess, with a more "Diamond" feel to it.

Yeah. Didn't we have this for parriphagy back before set 3? It was a similar binary> follow the clues process, then we had the image for a few hours before the actual text. Or maybe I misremember (can't be bothered to search the forums).

She is a terror, this thing you seek.
From eons in dank and dark, her skin does reek.
A code, a source, these secrets will slowly mesh,

I don't feel the designers would use a palindrome name if it wasn't at least CONNECTED to the necrotic, makes things too confusing. Which leaves either necrotic and eyed, or necrotic related with one of their names for some unknown freason. I'm betting the latter right now.

I feel dumb that I never noticed unique necrotics have palindromic names before! Thanks for posting this so I know. Love palindromes.
I guess it could be a coincidental name (it's only short after all), but odds are surely this is necrotic as you say.

A word or phrase that is the same backwards as forwards. All Necrotic are palindromes.

What's a palidrome?

Not the best examples given above, although they are true.

Palindromes, in popular usage, are words or sentences that read the same way forwards or backwards, but usually these are proper words/sentences.
E.g. one of the most famous is:
"A man, a plan, a canal, Panama!"

Even though the punctuation is off, you can read it in both directions and it still says the same thing and the whole thing is sensical.

Now take the unique necrotic: Lixil. Read it in either direction and it's the same. It's a palindrome.
Same for "Myrym".

wolzarg
01-18-2016, 08:20 PM

Huh, so she is indeed Necrotic as suspected, but doesn't have the gem eyes that can be seen on lots of the others, having actual irises, pupils, etc instead. What did she DO to herself, stick normal eyeballs in over top the gems? The pupils are WHITE, so that's all that's coming to mind, and she DOES have surgeon equipment, apparently...

She is so far the only necrotic that shows signs of patchworking and her eyes are kinda glowing so it wouldn't surprise me if she is a vain necrotic and collects bodyparts she likes to add to her body.

Flairina
01-18-2016, 08:55 PM

Yes, as I noted in the edit I was making as you posted this. But none of the other necrotic have anything more than blank orbs for eyes, because they're, you know, gems. Wolzarg could be right though, maybe she's frankensteined parts on to herself.

plaguedealer

True but does anyone think all Necrotic look like that? Literally no card except a few are this close up the only one is Grim Skull. It's possible all Necrotic look like this and Grim is a special case as his eyes are uncut strait diamonds

Flairina
01-18-2016, 09:01 PM
I'll have to see if there's lore on this. It sure SEEMS like the only possibility is that she frankensteined them on to herself, and apparently messed with whatever passes for necrotic organs given the giant incisions on her chest. But since necrotic need those hexing gems to continue "living", where ARE they? The diamond glow indicates behind the (remember, pointless) eyeballs, but there's no ROOM there, unless she somehow surgically cut through the back of her own sockets.

Wow, Iddi is seriously messed up. What is even the POINT of that sort of thing for a Necrotic? For a pseudo hive-mind the Necrotic sure have a lot of free thinkers.

Um. Have you read the lore? That's literally how all their eyes are. It's how they exist. Their eyes are ALL diamond hex shards. Cut or not they ain't gonna have pupils, or any eye details at all in fact.

Hex main page, dropdown menu under story. Everything there is essentially the lore we've got right now. Honestly revisiting it is making me wonder when we're gonna see some of the art that has no cards right now, ex.

I imagine a new player with just the necrotic starter + starter trial cards is going to find her phenomenally useful; just amass troops until you get her out, then the following turn Shift everything (ideally on to Deepgaze's) and take control of the board!

PvE spoilers keep on coming! Being as busy as I am, it's almost hard to keep up!

Is someone, or multiple people, planning on doing a video theorycrafting / reviewing all of these spoiled PVE cards? Like was done for every HEX set release? I know it's still early to do so, but I like those plenty!

Any clue on whether there will be something as a full PVE spoil?

She is so far the only necrotic that shows signs of patchworking and her eyes are kinda glowing so it wouldn't surprise me if she is a vain necrotic and collects bodyparts she likes to add to her body.

Iddi isn't the first Necrotic who is fascinated by her body. Lixil is also obsessed by the preservation of her individual form, and she does experiment a lot with hexing gems in an attempt to find the combination that will grant her body immortality (can be found in the lore here (https://www.hextcg.com/story/characters/#ikki), as well as in the game mechanics, where having all five thresholds grants her invincibility).

Lixil isn't as "butchered" as Iddi though, but that's probably part of the difference between a rogue and a warlock.

There are a lot of days in the month left you never know
Well, there is only 2 weeks, and we still don't know how things like mercenaries and consumables will work. We got a lot of nice ard spoilers inthe last few days, but it's no proof if the PvE is ready for relase or not.

I would be happy with a release on next week, but there is no indication that it would realistically happen... so I'm not optimistic. but it can happen.

Might Iddi actually be the first trans Necrotic we see though? Noticing that she is the first female necrotic to have an even number of letters in her name, something that strikes me as unusual, if we add to that her confirmed body augmentation it wouldn't surprise me if she was actually awakened in a male body, given a male name, and started "working on herself" to be more female.

For examples of necrotic names with odd/even names we have: Nin, Lixil, Myrym, Anana, who all seem female (with Ovo being an odd one out, that I almost forgot), and Gozzog, Dimmid, Carrac all seeming male.

I don't think the Necrotic have anywhere near the same view on gender as regular humans. They might be a bit vain and possessive of the body they were put into, but there would probably still be a hint of detachment with them being an alien consciousness inhibiting a shell after all.

So them modifying their body (whether it be gender or anything else) wouldn't be so much of them making their outsides match what they feel like how they should look, but more of satisfying a curiosity or simply a fashionable choice of how they would like to look.

Interesting thoughts. Iddi's eyes DO seem to indicate she cares about how she looks, though for exactly what reason is hard to say. That idea that Iddi is a "trans" necrotic DID sort of strike me when looking at the chest incisions, since I honestly cannot think of what she would be DOING with that area otherwise (clearly something was transplanted, since necrotic organs are either rotted and nonfunctional or nonexistent), but then we run in to the issue of how Necrotic consciousness works. It clearly isn't just through the gems, because it's made clear necrotic that arise when hexing gems are reused/recycled are different from whoever was using them before. It can't be from the brain, which has long since deteriorated (unless the gems somehow can fix long rotted tissue). So then where ARE their personalities/selves coming from, and can Iddi modify her body without modifying her mind as well? What parts of herself CAN she even modify before she isn't "her" anymore? Does her personality change if she swaps out too much, or is it a "crucial part" that provides individuality, and that's all she needs to keep?

Jeez, this is like the Theseus' Ship of bodies. I'd say maybe we're looking too far in to this, but this is interesting. Iddi is probably one of the most interesting necrotic to speculate on, based solely on her artwork.

That's the fun of detailed lore and backstory we can speculate till cows come home and everyone enjoys it.

It's also interesting to note that her flavourtext implies a disregard towards humans, yet her modifications seem to strive towards looking more human (with the eyes for example).

I disagree with that statement. While some Necrotic might have rotted and nonfunctional organs, there's nothing preventing the Necrotic from awakening the recently deceased. Obviously, the first batch of Necrotic have been awakened from long dead bodies, but with the ongoing war, they can harvest new hosts straight from the battle field and insert diamond gems before even rigor mortis sets in. Assuming the diamond gems prevent further decomposition, some of the newer Necrotic might have fully functional bodies (except for whatever killed the original Human that occupied that body).

This needs to be a sleeve. Please tell me there will be more PVE campaign sleeves, and that Iddi is one of them. Because YES PLEASE. :D

Fair enough. I'm pretty sure that's even stated in the lore, and we see as much on cards like corrupt harvester. But since the first ones didn't need the organs, clearly they aren't DOING anything for the necrotic. So I doubt whatever Iddi was doing had to do with whatever organs she has in there is all.

Jensling also has a point. We don't know her role yet beyond "warlock", but she sure doesn't seem like a frontline fighter, so it's not as if those modifications are to throw enemies off balance. What's the point? Maybe it's just to creep out still living humans they bring in, where she operates and... adds them to herself, or something? Again, seems impractical and unhelpful. Her choice of garb also has to be questioned; wedding dress/horror surgeon doesn't scream practical in any sense. What is UP with this woman?

That's cool, maybe suggest that in a thread about coyotles. We're talking about Iddi here, and Iddi's art definitely seems sleeve-worthy to me.

I am going with human bodies are like cars to Necrotic and that pose is someone showing off their custom modded car. Everything in the lore points to them being alien to human ways so trying apply human gender identity is a mistake.

Because Phenteo's a meanyface and can't tell me (meanyface)

May I ask who the artist is of Iddi? It reminds me a lot of AA Vampire Princess, and I'd really love to know who made it.

Iddi's art was done by Filipe Pagliuso. AA Vampire Princess was done by Phu Thieu. :)

Clearly this is how shift physically works - you chop off the part of the necrotic that's being shifted away, and attach it to the shift recipient! ;)
