“Hollow Men” Faction: What we know so far

Fae, fie, fo fum…..why you so sneaky new faction? Privateer Press has been trying for months to creep the new Hordes faction into our life. Using their tumblr, instagram, and ARG techniques to get us to eat our new set of faction vegetables. We know the new faction is not called Hollow Men but some type of possible unit within the faction. We are excited to see this new stuff, only thing is, their words and puzzles are too cryptic for us. Not sure if anyone has  put all the riddles in one place but if not, here is one.

We tried to compile all of their new faction puzzles in hopes there is a true point and that someone may have digested enough Iron Kingdoms lore to crack the code. Here is what we know and have seen on clues of the new faction hopefully this helps someone look at all that Privateer is up to.

PRIVATEER RIDDLE XIII

As we said earlier we are not smart enough to know, but this note has been progressively been updated through the months with no definite answer direction that we know of. If you Google-fu you will notice the familiars that have Privateer Press ties. Other than that…..??

What bites with no teeth?

The cold dead night. Wind reaching a fever pitch as it bites through the layers of fur, skin and then muscle. The frost accumulating on me as every step becomes more difficult and my limbs turn to frostbitten stumps. I have long since succumbed to the many little bites of this winter night.

Tinker tinker, what have we here? A song to keep the labour at bay. A bit of tin and a bit of sin to cobble a gate and invade the world today…

What illuminates the darkness ahead? Is that golden light a comfort? Or is it a glowing lure to lead you astray?

PRIVATEER RIDDLE VI

Decay takes root in all manner of things, from browning leaves to the hearts of kings. It feeds on fear and feeds on greed, then grows with thought and grows with deed.

PRIVATEER RIDDLE  VIDEO I

Video Backwards Translation:  “Let not thy heart grow over-ripe, all soft with sloth and greed, for once that rot has taken hold, to reaping must thou cede.”
They amble forth from verdant fields of rye
To furnish clues for the most cunning eye.
Though in our aims we may keep circumspect,
We point to Tumblr, where you might detect
Through guile and reason signs immortalized.
Stay vigilant! You’re sure to be surprised …

Carve a wicked smile with a blunted iron knife—a manic face like an angry ember, concealing unfathomable wrath and hate.

PRIVATEER RIDDLE I

Come harvest time it shall emerge, The wicked, defiant host, But yet to learn from whence it creeps First listen to me close. In shadows shall you find them hid In blackness where they dwell, But yet to learn of their dread plans Please listen to me...

Come harvest time it shall emerge,
The wicked, defiant host,
But yet to learn from whence it creeps
First listen to me close.

In shadows shall you find them hid
In blackness where they dwell,
But yet to learn of their dread plans
Please listen to me well.

The sheaf, it was an early gift,
But the blade a promise makes,
And those who fail to heed my words,
The blade their lives shall take.

Words from Privateer~

To some heroes, the history of their lands and people are more important than personal honor or glory. Lord Rikard Kozlov, Viscount of Scarsgrad, is such a hero, and he fights to protect the men and women who live on his ancestral lands, using his warcaster ability to destroy those who would endanger them. In this week’s story, “Path of Honor, Path of Blood” by Darla Kennerud, you will see Lord Kozlov battle a fierce enemy to safeguard his home, his people, and most important, the ancient traditions that bind them all together.

Mk III is almost here and with that an end the the lore teasers. Here is the Skorne story from Privateer for those that didn’t get it in there mailbox.

Privateer had this to say in the email-

“Heroes often fail, giving their lives in pursuit of a deeply held conviction, be it religious or patriotic. But some heroes refuse to submit to death, even if life promises nothing more than constant agony. Such is the case with the skorne mortitheurge Beast Master Xekaar, whose battered flesh bears the scars of his failure and serves as a testament to his rebirth through pain. In this week’s story, “In Agony Reborn” by Aeryn Rudel, you will witness Xekaar not only overcome his torment but use its inherent power to dominate his enemies.”

The Magister is up to get down. From Privateer to you ~ still steaming on the platter.

Vengeance is a powerful motivator, and it drives some of the Iron Kingdoms’ greatest heroes. In this week’s story, “Solidarity” by Douglas Seacat, Retribution of Scyrah warcaster Magister Helynna of House Shyeel seeks to exact vengeance not from a single nemesis but from the entirety of humanity. She fights to quell the tide of human magic destroying the elven gods, taking the battle directly to the enemies of her people. Helynna seeks to preserve what remains of Iosan lands and culture, and through the blood and pain of battle, she fights for the very salvation of the elven race.

New Story from Privateer and Kryssa of Legion….and now Privateers words for all who did not recieve.

“Not every hero seeks universal acceptance and renown, and some fight for a singular purpose that may seem alien or even villainous to others. Such is the case with the hero in this week’s story, “The Chosen,” by Aeryn Rudel. Kryssa, Conviction of Everblight, is a Legion of Everblight warlock who bears a shard of the athanc, the soul stone, of one of the mightiest creatures on Caen: a dragon. She fights to be worthy of Everblight’s favor, she fights to spread Everblight’s influence throughout Caen, but most of all, she fights to earn the dragon’s providence.”

Malekus Menoth Story-01

 

New Privateer present today for those that didn’t get it.for the holiest of rolliest!!

Privateerian Words below-

“Some heroes fight out of a sense of duty, others take to the battlefield to protect the legacy of their people or simply to enforce their will upon others. In this week’s story, “Fires of Truth” by William Shick, you’ll meet Malekus, The Burning Truth, a Protectorate of Menoth warcaster and priest who fights in the name of something much larger than himself: the god Menoth, Creator of Man. But salvation is not so easily won, and Malekus brings the holy fire of his god to the infidels and unbelievers of the world so that they, too, might feel the blazing power of Menoth’s truth…and perhaps die for it.
