    Odu Bathax OOCness

    Post by bobosmith01 on Mon Mar 02, 2015 5:10 pm

    Is it just me, or did Odu Bathax get a LOT of improvision in the show?
    Let's take a look.

    Using resources such as his actual cards and
    Portal to Perim:
    http://web.archive.org/web/20090505080543/http://portal.chaoticgame.com/perim/Odu_Bathax.aspx?sublist=CR

    ...We can assume that he is fair, but stern one-track minded bug, and is specifically stated to NOT look for trouble (IE only defend his queen and Hive at the North gate).

    Meanwhile in the show, he is shooting Danians ruthlessly with Battlegear, is shown AWAY often from the North gate, and practically jumped into the lion's nest, improvising to take Kiru City. If that's not asking for trouble, I don't know what is.

    I can't find too much to counterargue this. Becoming a battlemaster/the show taking place before/after couldn't have done it, because it's when he's fighting the M'arillians when the fact of him not looking for trouble pops up.

    I like the big (bug?) guy, but talk about straying from character. Do they do anything as significant as this with any other creature?

    It may have been a retcon. I don't have the book handy, but I think they changed that entry

    Maybe they meant a different Odu-Bathax....lol. What I thought was kinda sketchy is they pretty much demoted him from like the Dawn of Perim set to Secrets of the Lost city, now he's like an easy to get creature...which I thought was kinda odd, like I was surprised he wasn't the Danian General. Because when I think of Danian creatures he is usually the first one that comes to mind. But I guess it is kinda good they didn't make him a General, because he's a pretty good creature to use like say if you were making a deck with another General.

    Rareness has little to do with relevancy. Najarin was only rare in DOP, didn't stop him from being a major player even then

    Not to mention Dranakis Threshold is really rare and it's really common in the show. But, moreover to the point, could you check that, lazer? It'd be cool if you have the time, that is, thanks.

    The description is the same except for the "stern and just" part, which is cut out

    So yup, him being a douche was a retcon

    There is high disconnect between the show and the card game.

    Mainly reguarding attacks for "epic battles", but yes. I just haven't seen to much reguarding the actual creature's in terms of story or personality.
