I understand but patience, they took a long break from new lore the past 3 patches but it's coming! Let me remind you we're getting great comics and we had Ashe comic.

: > As we all noticed by now, some in- game items are lore related. For example: Frost Queen's Claim, Seeker's Armguard, Guardian's Orb and many others I can't think of right now. But they're not. Just because items share the aesthetics or qualities that can be found in-universe, doesnt make them canonical without ever legitimately been mentioned.

If you go to Freljord you will see that the Frostqueen's Claim is depicted. Seeker's Armguard used to belong to Lissandra, Sejuani now wears it as seen in her splash art. I can not Imagine that an Item like Deadmans Plate, Iceborn Gauntlet do not exist in lore...Blade of the ruined King is familiar to Yorick when buying it, he talks about it. Gargoyle Stoneplate is what Galio wears. There you go pal

: Well my real name is Odin.

(Thor: Ragnarok being the first I've liked) But also as an American, I was interested in finding a way to make those myths more universal-- so even prior to working on it I was always looking for (and finding) parallels to-and-with Native American cultures, northern asian cultures, and norse cultures. **But probably a much, much more important factor was when I started at riot no cared about the Freljord. ** A lot of the chief mucky-mucks thought it was kinda a dumpster fire-- and didn't care about it. So unlike Noxus or Demacia, I knew if I did some work in the freljord I wouldn't have to go thru ninety layers of approvals and feedback. So I might actually get to do something cool and unique. Actually, a lot if not most, of the work I've done in riot were in the places our IP that our leadership didn't like, places that didn't previously exist, or characters leadership didn't have strong opinions on how everything should be.

Thanks for sharing that, I guess norse mythology was always interesting to me but as only a fan and not a writer I never dove deep into it. Meh Im simple I just love the thematic of ice, however legends connected to it also appear intetresting. Also do you watch Game of Thrones? If yes I loved the night king, I automatically make connection to the freljord and Liss :P
: I read manga as a kid and teen, (I'm old, so it was kinda the first wave-- i.e. when Akira, Appleseed, Ranma 1/2 etc first landed) , but didn't really get into American comics till art school. My college roommate (Chris Walton a concept artist-- his stuff is good check it out) was horrified that I hadn't read Dark Knight, Sin City, Xmen, etc.. He literally put a pile of Hellboy books on my bed and told me he couldn't live with me if I didn't read them. I did. Then bought my own copies (and later some BPRDS) After that, I kept up with comics, buying mostly Dark Horse and Image ..in addition to manga purchases. I was never an every Wednesday guy, but I went to the comic shop once a month and bought stuff. However, I think my buying reached it's peak when i was working on_ The Walking Dead_ TV show and the first version of Bendis's _Powers_ (The FX version never aired. The Sony one you can download-- i didn't have anything to do with). Because I ended up talking to Kirkman and Bendis about comics writing during those shows-- I never thought I was gonna work in comics-- but I was trying to understand where they were coming from and how to better work with them. Their viewpoints really helped me understand of the medium's artistic language and made me appreciate American comics more. (I think my taste in terms of pacing and storytelling still leans towards manga though) So I was probably going to comic store every Saturday during that period of my life. But my wife then having a baby cut it completely out for a couple years... I was too busy being tired. And my wife (who also reads them) was too tired to read them, let alone have fun convos about them. Fast forward 5 years and I started going to the shops again (a little before I started writing Ashe) because my daughter was older.... and she loves, loves, loves the Avatar and My Little Pony books. So now I'm going almost every other week. I usually buy a floppy or two for me plus a trade or graphic novel and then a graphic novel and couple floppies for her. sorry. -long answer

I know every writer has some preference but I would love to know about yours and how you discovered it :) I know for me it is the thematic, I love winter as I was also born in January. I would also say that I like all freljordian champions, my dear Lissandra of course the most. She probably got me into lore and the Freljord. Love her voice as it is incredibly stunning, her queen-like,posh attitude, her mind... I love the fierceness she displays, the power she shows. I love her Archetype... Thats my short story, I wonder about yours :)

: Udyr Visual Rework?
End of the year maybe.

He may be the one getting reworked this year! Odin is reworking his last champion on the champions team and I thought it would be Volibear but now that it isnt it is most likely Udyr!

What that is so smart of you, why didnt I think of that! Odin will work on his last champion rework this year. Odin mostly does Freljord and Udyr would make perfect sense actually! I originally thought it was Volibear and now that it isnt I was shocked and confused but I shouldve thought of Udyr he is still in need of a VGU, anyway good thought!

Every special edition contains one(out of 4) issue and the extra material exclusive to that one issue. So Issue 1 will have the first part of the comic plus the extra will contain sketches of that first issue, transcripts and also a glossary. There is 4 issues online. All the four issues will be bound together and put into one whole physical comic that will come out on may 14th.

I would love to know more about that bridge and how Lissandra got the metal that fell from it...It is intriguing to me because Ornn himself isn't interested in anything at all, whatever you offer him he already has or shows disinterest in, however this celestial metal piece is a mistery that fascinated the great Ornn. Again here we are so many question and no answers anywhere in sight *sigh*.

Falrein (EUW)
: What kind of cinematic would you like to see in the future?
I find that cinematics like Awaken are the best overall as it gives more people the chance of seeing their favorite champion in action. So I would personally love to see a Freljord cinematic. With the Freljord cinematic, it would open new possibilities for a chance of every faction getting their cinematic, which should be done in my opinion. That is my practical view. However my personal view is that I would love to see a cinematic like the Ryze one for Lissandra. I would love her to give us visions of what she did when Runeterra was comepletely different thousands of years ago. I would imagine it being flashes of short memories of the Rune Wars, Darkin War, War of the Three Sisters, Void Invasion etc. There is so much that she could've potentially witnessed that I believe we all should know about. Now I know that I have a personal bias toward Lissandra but nonetheless she is probably the oldest person on Runeterra who is still alive and has knowledge of all the things that have happened, so that alone would make her a good candidate. Leblanc, Nasus and Mordekaiser may have witnessed some things but compared to Lissandra they're still too "young" so their stories wouldn't be as broad.

Deep Sea is the most appealing to me especially thinking of the fact that he can easily be incorporated into the DS skinline with Nami!
: Animation Storyboard worth watching.
This does hurt, but I hope that this was scrapped for a better cinematic of something/someone else. We all want more cinematics and we noticed that Riot has hired a few more animators, so hope we get more and I know you have no influence or knowledge of that but Im still putting it out there :)

Im not sure that I follow your argument because what you are saying is that when a certain champion gets an update only champions who are in direct relation get an update too? That falls flat as regional updates of unrelated champions are not unheard of, Sylas much? Just because Talon is not directly related to morde does not mean he is out of the picture. Plus by that train of thought Talon would never ever be updated again as he is not related to anyone, he is as dead as malphite lore wise.
