The Crimson Circle LoR cards have some really clever writing

I wasn't the one to discover this, but I want to share it with SAS because this is some grade A lore on here. [](https://i.ibb.co/ZBymt5M/web-3p-signup-payment-banner.jpg) As we know from [Vlad's bio](https://universe.leagueoflegends.com/en_US/story/champion/vladimir/), he has a cult of personality, a group of young Noxian mages of noble descent, known as the Crimson Circle. There are 4 Crimson cards in the game (a.k.a. The Squad) and the flavor texts on each card seem ambiguous at first glance. For reference, here's what the cards are saying: > [**Crimson Aristocrat**](https://i.ibb.co/Wym70MN/72622514-1104775586524810-5597502496009355264-n.jpg): "Ah, you too? To the Reveler's B--" "How am I to tolerate mine?" "Respectfully, my dear, my father would disown me. ...perhaps we should wear matching dresses." > > [**Crimson Disciple**](https://i.ibb.co/CQHrDwx/72564581-2446144512322241-4938448942783266816-n.jpg): "Edvin! There you are, handsome. I was just thinking of you!" "Each of us can go, now…" "Escort me. I'll make it fun." "Or nothing at all?" > > [**Crimson Curator**](https://i.ibb.co/ZBymt5M/web-3p-signup-payment-banner.jpg): "Beloved companions!" "Were you? Well I received an invitation." "--Reveler's Ball! Yes!" "Then we must! I shall present my family." "Starters before dessert, my dear. And you, Kye? Will you attend?" > > [**Crimson Awakener**](https://i.ibb.co/0YGpZ6w/image0-4.jpg): "Even if I said 'no', you'd drag me along. So... sure." > > From this, we get the basic idea: they're young party animals who have a certain appetite for degeneracy, and who are all going to a [certain someone's ball](https://i.imgur.com/lF91sO2.png). Also, Aristocrat and Disciple are really into buffing each other. ##Pieced together, the conversation looks like: > **Curator**: ""Beloved companions!" > > **Disciple**: "Edvin! There you are, handsome. I was just thinking of you!" > > **Curator**: "Were you? Well I received an invitation." > > **Aristocrat**: "Ah, you too? To the Reveler's B--" > > **Curator**: "--Reveler's Ball! Yes!" > > **Disciple**: ""Each of us can go, now…" > > **Curator**: "Then we must! I shall present my family." > > **Aristocrat**: "How am I to tolerate mine?" > > **Disciple**: "Escort me. I'll make it fun." > > **Aristocrat**: "Respectfully, my dear, my father would disown me. ...perhaps we should wear matching dresses." > > **Disciple**: "Or nothing at all?" > > **Curator**: "Starters before dessert, my dear. And you, Kye? Will you attend?" > > **Awakener**: "Even if I said 'no', you'd drag me along. So... sure." And now the best part? ##Read the first letter of each line. {{sticker:zombie-brand-mindblown}} Anyway, I owe this to [a redditor](https://old.reddit.com/r/LegendsOfRuneterra/comments/dyd4kr/so_whats_the_conversation_the_crimson_circle_are/) and I'm loving every bit. This is the kind of inspired, loving, high effort writing that keeps me coming back to Runeterra.
