Third hand information - the most reliable kind!

OK, I'm going to admit this right now - this may be the LEAST responsible thing I've ever done, and I'm not normally one for spreading rumours but there's talk on the Retribution Community forums about a new character Light Myrmidon.  Now, I don't know if this is true (in fact, the idea of Rahn having TWO Warjacks with Affinities is a bit odd at this stage), but this is copied directly from this thread and, to be honest, I at least HOPE it's true.

Retribution Character Gorgon Light Myrmidon

+1 MAT, +1 RAT. Same damage grid.

Same weapons profile as a regular Gorgon, except each fist has +1 POW. Fists still have Combo Strike (*Attack) and Polarity Cannon still has Kinetic Grip.

Equal to a regular Gorgon's cost +1.

- Force Lock.
- Field Dependent.
- Affinity [Rahn]: While within Rahn's control area, Euryale has no back arc.
- Imprint: Enliven. (See Vassal of Menoth for Enliven, and Drago for how Imprints work if you don't know)

Now, I DO have my doubts, primarily because Rahn has Discordia, but this seems legit enough, maybe for it to be a typo?  Ravyn would make sense...  Also, Force Lock with 360 degree vision is brutal - it could easily shut down a whole unit if it can get in the middle of them.  If it can get into a load of ranged specialists, there's very little they can do to stop it.

That's my thoughts anyway.  Can anyone confirm this?

UPDATE - This is just for the Escalation League.  Shame. :(


  1. It's correct... or at least I believe it is. It's for the next PP league.

    In it you won't be able to use Gorgons, instead you'll use this.

  2. Ahhh so it's JUST for that League, not, like, a permanent thing?

    Shame, it looked like it kicked ass.

  3. It's the league. The Circle gets a pack of 5 independent war wolves that charge right across the bloody table, I am considering buying 5 just for the league.

  4. Ahh damn, shame.

    I guess I should post a clarification, then :(

  5. I'm still naming my Rahn Gorgon after this one. =)
