I think a few people already posted about this over at the main forums, but I want to compare the "twin" sisters from the new set, Aivenna and Nivenna.
First off, you can see that the two names are only on letter off, the color of their skin switches with the color of their hair, their poses are mirror versions of each other, and both feature a famous creature from a the base set in the background, but how else are they similar?
One is the classic fighter: high energy, and something to power its attacks, and the other is the classic support creature: low energy, large amount of mugic counters and a mugic ability.
Nivenna has pretty high wisdom, not too many underworlders have as high of an intellengence. That is pretty overworld-y of her. Not to mention the fact that her ability powers up your creatures instead of hurting your opponent's. That is also pretty uncharacteristical for an underworlder.
There are a few other obvious similarities with the creatures. They have the same power and wisdom. Aivenna as two forms of Outperform 5, while Nivenna gives creatures you control an element 10 of your choice, which is sort of like having two element 5's. Then there is the mugical difference. Nivenna has 3 counters, which is the largest amount a creature has been given so far, and Aivenna has the lowest amount of mugic counters.
Their abilities reflect off of each other as well. Nivenna powers up all of your warriors, and Aivenna's support ability only works if you have a muge. Doesn't that seem weird? These two creatures seem to be made to be put in the same army, but because of their Loyalty, they aren't able to. It is possible that they are hinting at a possible way to bypass Loyalty in the future, or they might just be messing with us. Who knows?
These creatures seem to work in opposite directions, but also seem to want to work together. Any thoughts?
