Re: [Pod 2] Durnipia (Kiora, the Rising Tide) - Public Feedb

I'd vote yea to giving her 4 range, whether or not her attack is reduced to 2 I don't have a strong preference either way. I think at this point everyone but @Zetsubo has chimed in in favor of a ranged attack?

I hadn't seen - yeah, probably better to go down to 2.

Re: [Pod 2] Durnipia (Kiora, the Rising Tide) - Public Feedb

Looks like there's momentum behind 4R/2A (I like it too), is it enough to call it and update the OP?

Re: [Pod 2] Durnipia (Kiora, the Rising Tide) - Design?

OP updated with Capt S's power wording and range/attack.

At this point, I think my vote will be to make her not durnipia, so she'd probably follow Aquilla.

Should we do another vote for her RE: Durnipia?

Re: [Pod 2] Durnipia (Kiora, the Rising Tide) - Design?

I'd say so, we'll have to do it at sooner or later. My vote would be not Durnipia and make her her own thing. If she's going to be from Feylund it's full of mythological inspiration, and there are plenty of myths to pick from.

Also it feels like a lot of figures are being pushed towards making them into referenced characters in the lore which isn't necessary. We have Katryn and potentially the elf being Morsbane's mother, and then there was discussions on turning Pyria into Johrdawn and probably some others I've missed. I've said it before but this is too unique a figure that I'd wouldn't be happy making her into a fan service lore reference. I get the appeal, but a couple of units like that is enough. Too many and it starts to feel a bit shoehorned.

Re: [Pod 2] Durnipia (Kiora, the Rising Tide) - Design?

It's been a bit quiet here for a few days so I want to pop some research in that I've been doing.

Iíve been looking around and seeing what we could use as a race for this figure, which may help us with naming her. If we wanted to generalise her for any potential future designs (whether C3V or otherwise), Nymph is probably the best way to go since so many other races are generalised, like Undead, Insects etc. If we wanted something more specific, Merfolk, Finfolk, Undine, Rusalki/Rusalka, Siren/Sirena, or Naiad could work. Naiads are a type of Nymph in Greek Mythology, who were often healers or nurses for deities including some Gods, including the likes of Zeus and Hera. They would also offer blessings and protection to towns that appeared near their homes, and towns were frequently named in honour of their local Naiad.

Rusalki are a Slavic mermaid that are commonly associated with more malicious intentions and were practically zombies, but the original myth was them being spirits of women who drowned, and would emerge from bodies of water to give life to earth.

As for her lore, we could take her a variety of routes if going Naiad. Perhaps she lives near Ashra or where the Nine are from. She could be tied to one of the Nine, whether through marriage or a nurse for them/worked with them. Or maybe she worked with Morsbaneís mother, and looked after him after she was killed. She could of been a nurse for Johrdawn or even one of the other members of the Nine. Perhaps even she is royalty to one of the Elven regions, married to the Elven ruler which is why their homeland is set up where it is. One of the home places of the Elves could of been named after her thanks to her blessings.

Iím personally in favour of Naiad/Nymph and looking at some named Naiads that we could either copy the name of, or twist in some way. Iíve copied names of some of the named Naiads below, specifically ones stated to be nurses. Following the wikipedia article below will take you to a much bigger list of all the named ones, not just specifically nurses/healers.

Myrtoessa, Neda, Hagno, Alcinoe, Anchiroe, Cleide, Coronis, Eupheme, Glauce, Ortygia, Philia, Phrixa.

Of these, Neda, Hagno, Alcinoe, Glauce, and Phrixa were nurses to infant Zeus, alongside Theisoa, Anthrakia, Oinoe, and Ida. Originally there was only three: Neda, Theisoa and Hagno, but at some point it evolved into nine nurses. Another notable Naiad was Tiasa. This is just a tiny handful of Naiads, a quick page search on the last link below with named Nymphs brings up about 200 different Naiads.

From the last link, and looking at named places in Feylund for a potential tie in, there is also the named Naiad Ascra.

I think I'm voting for not Durnipia. I was gung ho about her being Durn before, but over time my opinion has changed.
