: "Fans" because if you're not cool with Riot replacing your champion choice then I guess you just weren't a real fan
: This is my own list that I can refer to on the subject matter. > [DEITIES] - Great Weaver- Nature God, governs the tapestry of fate, Shurima origins. - Shurima Sun god- Before the Sun Disk Shurima had a pantheon of gods, they were disowned and now long forgotten. - Bearded Lady- Elder God, governs the sky; sea; movement, Blue Flame Isles/Buhru origins. - Ornn- Firstborn, demi-god of fire and craftsmanship, Freljord origins. - Anivia- Benevolent idol, demi-god of the bitter cold; wind; rebirth/transition, Freljord origins. - The Volibear (Thousand-Pierced bear) - Ambivalent idol, demi-god of battle, uncivilized wilderness and thunder, Freljord origins. - The Sealsister- Forgotten goddess of the frozen sea, Freljord origins. - The Tusk Lord- Undisclosed demi-God, Freljord origins. > [IDOLS] - Gray Lady- Patron saint, the catalyst for Techmaturgy, Piltover/Zaun origins. - Veiled Lady (Morgana)- Patron saint of penance and atonement, Demacia origins. - The Protector (Kayle)- Patron saint of unwavering justice, Demacia origins. - Sivunas Alahair- prophesied hero, Shurima origins. - The Ascended Host/Darkin- all Sunborn were treated with god-like reverence, more so out of fear during the Darkin War. - Demon (Evelynn, Nocturne, Tahm Kench, Swain's demon) The spiritual manifestations of various aspects of humanity, feeding on unnatural coveting and/or unhealthy addictions. Note: I would love to include related items as "Idols" too, but gameplay =/= lore. > [ENTITIES] - Aurelion Sol- Born when the universe first came to be and spent eons forging stars. this allowed for the formations of star systems, planets and planetary life across the cosmos. Not particularly known throughout Runeterra nor worshiped. - Bard- A traveler from beyond the stars and an agent of serendipity to maintain balance where life can endure the indifference of chaos. - Nagakabouros- The exact size and scope of this being transcend mortal comprehension. It's a 'force' of energy that's connected with all living things. - Vilemaw- Although not a god, this entity is far more than meets the eye. - Kindred- Runeterra's mythological representation of death. Spoken of only in whispered tones by those who narrowly avoided fatality and seen by all in life's last moments. - Aspects- A group of cosmic unknowns, each embody a particular concept and has the ability to imbue mortals with their power/persona. - The Watchers- the conscious manifestation of the unknown nothingness that lies beyond. - The Spirit of Ionia- An unknown entity that expresses itself in various magical ways, through the land and abilities of some the champs. >[CULTS/SPIRITUAL INSTITUTIONS] ~~RELIGIONS~~ - Cult of the Three Sister- (Avarosa, Serylda, Lissandra). Ancient Freljordian saints revered as if god-like. - Draklorn- Lissandra's own cult inquisition. - Solari- Targon Sun(light) worshiping. - Lunari- Targon Moon(light) worshiping. - Church of the Glorious Evolved- Faith through techmaturgy and the practice of sacrificing flesh with mechanical limbs. - Somersaulting like Rammus - Yeah, some weird thing Shuriman's do to honor Rammus. - Sun Disk- Shuriman Sun priests dictate the will of the cosmos for those honored with the rite of Ascension. - The Illuminators- A charitable religious order and one of the only organizations within Demacia to utilize mages, albeit secretly. - Kinkou Order- An ancient clan dedicated to the preservation of balance and the protection of spirits and humans alike. - Indigenous culture Buhru- Not much is known beyond their devotion to Nagakabouros and the many other serpent gods. - Brethren of the Dusk- They maintain and bury corpses, not too sure if actually religious though. Doesnt matter tho, as they're all dead.
You forgot the Dreadlord.

: {{champion:91}} Mordekaiser update no doubt.
: Yorick and Mordekaiser
I‘m under NDA so this is as in-depth as I can go on this topic: On a power-level scale, Mordekaiser definitely towers over Yorick both in physical prowess and sorcerous potential. But these two characters operate very differently and Yorick‘s tale would play out in other ways than just throwing ghouls at Morde. He primarily wants to reverse the Ruination, not destroy Morde. Also, Mordekaiser‘s specific brand of necromancy will be revealed preeeeetty soon. You’ll see... Huehuehuehue

That's Nightfall and it looks better than this silly ball with too many spikes on it ever did.
: Thank you so much d00mface! And yes you are right on the money. (Even spotting how I carefully worded the description of Aatrox's previous form.) When we were just staring on Aatrox, the main narrative pillar was "The Devil." So I absolutely looked at how that archetype was used previously-- and I absolutely did re-examine "Paradise Lost." And yep, the goal with this sort of character is to both deliver the archetype that people clearly connect with, and also hopefully find a way to make this incarnation, unique from the various characters that inspired it FYI: We usually aim to have a minimum of 3 to 5 reference characters that we can use to define the archetype's core traits in early production and to keep us from attached to a single point of reference. {{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}}
Thanks for blessing us with Aatrox, he‘s risen to my second most favorite champion in no time! And probably the biggest reason‘s his narrative, character and Vo! Truly a masterful take on the Devil archetype! Also on the topic of having several other characters as references: Super happy to have Morde be more than just a Sauron ripoff :9
: Wait. He seems different... Are you sure you're allowed to show us that?
They already leaked his helmet's look so I can actually share this stuff without getting my ass sued.

: Those Noxian genes sure are something, aren't they? I suppose the nobles could be trimming theirs; Swain is just a bit of a rebel, even at his age. For further research, Ryze and Grigori also have/had [stronger](https://gamepedia.cursecdn.com/lolesports_gamepedia_en/a/aa/Ryze_Splash_0.jpg?version=2ef430cb7e3a491ff1c6fe0733d3e6d3) [eyebrows](https://i.imgur.com/LuS1aY2.jpg), while Vladimir has those standard for [a nobleman](https://gamepedia.cursecdn.com/lolesports_gamepedia_en/b/be/Vladimir_Splash_0.jpg?version=92e79a9571fe368696d5e4fed7a61403). But I do have to wonder: did Mordekaiser have them while he was alive as well? Is that going to be my new headcanon? The plot thickens.
*suggestive Morde eyebrow wiggle*

: Not all of them are confirmed for release though, and some of them might undergo drastic changes still, right?
Jup, that's just how the dev process works.
: But did you get to see any of them? And you know me, I have to ask: was there something from Zaun or Piltover among them? If you don't answer, I will consider this a yes. If you answer and I don't like it, I will also consider this a yes.
Well can neither deny nor confirm what's in the work but I did manage to catch some juicy sneak peeks at some of the upcoming content. Great stuff in there, I tell ya.
: Kinda doubt that Ledros has anything to do with a new champion. The 2 new champions we currently know which probably were in development when MaliciousMetal visited should be the new support and probably the assassin which they hinted that they have one in the works. Ledros clearly is not a whimsical support, nor does he have any relation to the teaser which has shown a book. And his appearance definitely does not read "assassin" either. He is described with alot of armor, being a titanic dude, using sword and shield. This description would most likely fit to either a tank or a juggernaut, but definitely not an assassin. _________________ It would change quite alot of Mordekaisers lore, you are right about that. So can be that Malicious is just trolling us here, since Ledros design resembles Mordekaiser so much. About weapons: depends how you see it. I would consider Urgot as a "total change of weapons".
There were more than 2 champions in development fyi.
: Riot said that Mordekaiser isn't this happy with his situation, he wants to be immortal but not as an undead.

: There's been one official contest that I know of, through [Polycount in 2017/2018](https://polycount.com/discussion/198871/riot-creative-contest-2017-winners-narrative#latest). The winner was a player active on the boards, [Blood Magicks](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/player/EUW/Blood%20Magicks), and she ended up writing Vlad's AWESOME[](https://universe.leagueoflegends.com/en_US/story/champion/vladimir/) [new bio](https://universe.leagueoflegends.com/en_US/story/champion/vladimir/) as well!! Unfortunately, I haven't heard of any new contests, including the contests run by EUW/EUNE. {{sticker:zombie-nunu-tears}} But I can say, it's a long term goal for the narrative team here to bring in new voices, and harness the passion of our fans. There have been mysterious conversations.
I do like the sound of that.

: MORDEKAISER NEXT IN LINE
Oh he’s awesome. Totally worth the wait!
: I think if anyone has the honor of calling him "my big metal boi" it's Malicious Metal.
Well, in the end he’s “Our big Metal Boi”. *USSR Anthem playing*
: The gays would cry if they confirmed Kat x Garen. Or at least me.

She went a plate-mailed god of war to typical lol female character. Even her helmet felt Rito's 'creative' wrath. Tis the tragedy of our time.
Ah I thought you were referring to Morde's base. But yeah, I actually dig some of her armour design but the torso is just a disaster. Her ditching all kind of neck and head armour at level 11 is tragic too.

: ...since mods hate my opinions, i'm not going to post them. But people already know what i think about this... thing.
Marvel called, they need Mister Negative back.
: Thank you so much. Glad you liked it! It's funny, each of the projects I do I tend to put in different mental buckets based on various musical tastes. I literally think, this character to should appeal to people who like "this or that genre of music." Rakan, Kled, Zoe, Aatrox, and Volibear each relate to different types of music. It's possible Volibear is the most "metal" thing I've ever written-- even more than Aatrox's short story.
Well he certainly appeals to this metalhead! Say, which champion would you say would relate most to Blue Öyster Cult?
: Give me a one word spoiler of his backstory.
: If only we were somehow able to dig into Mordekaiser's backstory, and find out what he actually did to make most of the world think he was a terrifying villain... Also, hi. {{sticker:leblanc-funny}} {{sticker:vlad-salute}}

Zoli Ben (EUNE)
: What is it? Big, crazy, insane and a doctor?
Personally? I'd take a few steps back and ask myself what we should really want from a Mundo VGU. He went through quite a few iterations, from literally being a Hyde/Jekyll clone, to being an actual Chembaron, to his new mutant baby lore, there needs to be ONE direction to isolate and build him with that idea in mind. Currently only extreme innate regeneration and hideous appearance are very core to Mundo, with him being a Doctor, or at least thinking he is, taking somewhat of a backseat. So, to rework Mundo one should first try to isolate THREE main thematic pillars to build his VGU on.
: it looks like they played way to much rs3
As someone who is very fond of RuneScape, that really hit me. Ouch.
: Kayle is Really Putting Her Neck on The Line
Similarly to Irelia, you won't see Kayle from that angle when playing her.
: The scales needed to be balanced eventually.
Why else do you think I'm so excited for his VGU? I'm gonna need to get one of those mouses with proper key binds because boy, I'm gonna need one of my hands for something other than playing the game.
