**[Edit] Wowzers that was close! The Cage _juuuuust_ won out but it was neck and neck the whole way. Super cool.**
#2018 Lore Tournament: Day 5
Welcome to day 5 of the 2018 [Lore Tournament](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/story-art/NElv7TLw-megathread-2018-lore-tournament)!
After a run of Noxian aggression, facing off against beautiful dangers in the jungle, beautiful dangers in the depths of Shurima, and beautiful dangers in a port town in Ionia, we encounter some significantly more malicious and insidious dangers...
This lovely Monday has us rubbing shoulders with some of the most horrific of League characters - who's hearts (such as they are) are filled with hate and ill will towards all of humanity. So turn the lights on, hug your pets, and join me in this great unsettling.

Unable to breathe, unable to move, the unstoppable will of Aatrox rages against his situation.

Abel asks for another bedtime story from his father, Celwyn; a story to keep the monsters away.
S P O O P Y and no mistake. I'm having a lot of fun re-reading these - and I hope you folks are too. Every one the brain-baby of a lovely writer person who hoped to give us another little window into the world of Runeterra. Cue cheesy phrase and I beg forgiveness in advance, but I want so many of these stories (all of them?) to win. They all have their place, their purpose, and their need.
Ahem. Enough of that - fight brain-babies! FIGHT!
