Don't forget, Aleta sorceress is now Vasir's prisoner! So... who knows whats in store for the the CoV on Reish. What with them now being under constant Demon assault from torment through the Hellmouth.I care more about the role of exiles, since they are mentioned nowhere in the lore up to this point.
it's kinda strange COV are still getting demon cards in rebellion when Vasir is free, maybe there's a demon civil war going on just like the overseers?
I'd like to think that 'rebellion/insurgency' has spread to most of the factions.
WP: It seems like nature itself is rebelling here, against the factions that wrought destruction on the untamed world, and killed the leaders of the Warpath.
GI: Lucca has had her wings removed (looks like in some shady secret lab) and has become a rebellion leader. (shooting, on the ground) I'd suggest she's leading an insurgency in defiance against FD rule. the removal of her wings also seems to symbolically show a 'turning away' from her alignment with the OoS (the art of 'Defiance' is Lucca, Acsended yet she's back to GI purity).
CoV: I don't know what the rebellion is here but the death of Candit has left Rita unchecked and in the Diseased Brute text we read that Rita has gone of the deep end with her creations. however who is Alearem? and whose/what fate is she twisting? Those orbs shown look an awful lot like the orbs around the knife in 'The Price of Fame.' Also I didn't think CoV had a king but someone's King just got rekt.
FD: With the Hope of Dawn and celebration of the glory of the empire being side by side with a defiant footman (possibly making deals with devils or demons?) and a show of the strength of unity (unity with the DoD?) there seems to be a crack in the allegiances of the FD.
DoD: Again hard to tell what the rebellion is here, but, is the defiant monk protecting a devil/demon?
SoA: Pretty much the same thirst for brains here. Can zomborgs really even rebel?
Ex: Not much here either, Would YOU
rebel against an angry demon prince?
OoS: We have Lily's followers fighting Sol's. Angels vs. Angel and a war in the heavens. Lily is in multiple cards and she's getting stronger (in 'Evict' it even looks like she's busting halos) An attempt to seal the rifts. They even got "The Law" involved.
but there's something more going on.... Look at the 'defiant' cards in all the factions. Who is that shadowy winged Figure in all the artwork? Angel? Demon? Something else? Who could be attempting to gain influence or inspiring defiance among all the factions?
