: On a scale of 1 to 10, how hyped are you for the Swain VGU?
A solid 8 for me. Personally I'm gonna be most excited for a Cho'Gath VGU or a Rammus VGU but that's just me. Regardless I'm really intrugied to see where the lore goes for Swain, considering how involved in the story he was in the pre-retcon days. Swain's one of the most important characters in terms of the wider Runeterran political side of things, considering he's head of what's gotta be one of, if not the largest nation of modern Runeterra, and really only Azir and Jarvan III holding claim to anything close to that kind of influence.
: Varus was rewritten to distance him from Penny Arcade
Or... They just had a new narrative direction for Varus in mind that they themselves felt passionate about and figured they're go with it. Not everything has some convoluted reason behind it, sometimes it's literally a case of "Hey I've got an idea" and the process of then having that idea be realised.
: So on Lucian and Senna...
Thresh did both, since the act of having one's soul removed pretty much kills them. Originally Lucian thought she was just dead, but with the recent revelation that her soul endures in Thresh's Lantern, his goal is to free her. This then leads to the plan of killing Thresh and destroying the lantern.
: Whats a yordle
Glamour is a magic yordle use to make them look human. It effectively humanizes them, but it's not a permanent or infallable magic, since it can be seen through if you're someone who's innately magical or have a similar mindset to the yordle. They use it to be a part of human society without humans knowing they're there, probably cuz humans would freak out at the sight of them. Yordles themselves are a species of diminutive, furry humanoids that come from Bandle City. They have innate magic powers and are considered "timeless" rather than ageless or immortal, since apparently time flows differently in Bandle City. Beyond that we don't know much beyond what champions are considered yordles, which include: {{champion:42}} {{champion:105}} {{champion:150}} {{champion:74}} {{champion:85}} {{champion:240}} {{champion:117}} {{champion:78}} {{champion:68}} {{champion:17}} {{champion:18}} {{champion:45}} {{champion:115}} Some consider Amumu a yordle, but no one knows for sure.
Epicurus (OCE)
: The new video's not strictly canon anyway, is it? Because if Taliyah and Xerath are fighting, and if Thresh and Lucian have had another showdown, then that is some serious story progression that hasn't been explained.
It's hypotheticals by the looks of things: - Lucian and Thresh haven't met since Shadow and Fortune, and we haven't seen what Lucian's plan is past the fact that he's now actually making one with some semblence of hope in his heart. - Taliyah's goal is to confront Azir at the moment, not Xerath, and we haven't seen what the resolution of that is, though I find it likely that she'll be against Xerath rather than with him as things progress. - Illaoi's already expressed that she intends to test Miss Fortune at some point, but as to when isn't clear. Considering how Shadow and Fortune went for Bilgewater and Miss Fortune in particular I don't think she's going to be needing that test any time soon. It's in universe what if scenarios meant to depict the champions overcoming crushing odds stacked against them. It's far more representative of the canon than other big fight porn cinematics have been in the past, but no, it's almost certainly not canon.

: Are Miss Fortune and Illaoi become rival in new cinematic?
No no, this is Illaoi's job: to test people. Her feelings about the person being tested aren't important, the test is to help people grow and move forward in life.
: why is illaoi fighting MF? i remember them being on good terms during their story
Illaoi's testing Miss Fortune; seeing whether she's capable of moving forward. It's likely not Illaoi's intention to kill her, but the nature of the test demand that she be pushed to the limit.
: Epic animation. Especially loved the Blitzcrank BM, the Ocarina of Time Link scream from Ekko, and the pure Lucian badassery. That man was a pure beast. I'd be excited to see Shen in a cinematic like this, fighting off hordes of spirits or even battling Zed. Maybe even a standoff with Jhin. Who knows.
Considering his propsneity for fighting demons I'd say pit him against Evelynn. Let's see how unshakable he really is.
: So they have the time to make cinematics, but cba making a decent game? okay lol.

Fasmodey (EUW)
: Then how is he gonna kill her? If his goal to kill her, he should use enough power to eliminate, penetrate or melt her walls. They were pathetic strikes against Taliyah.
Well I mean it looked like the shots were already mid air; Taliyah cast the huge wall in response to seeing the shots. If this is Xerath's first time seeing Taliyah, then he might not be aware of the extent of her powers, or maybe he can, and he's doing this as a test of sorts to see just how much she's got. One measly mage might not be of interest, but: > Nasus grinned at her bravado. “You possess a hero’s heart, girl, but you are not the one I seek. Your magic is strong, so if I were you, I would leave this city **before Xerath rips it from you.**” Someone who's got a bit more power under them might be worth testing a bit, roughing up a tad, to see what they can do, and THEN destroying them utterly and taking it all away from them.
Fasmodey (EUW)
: Never knew arcane barrages were that weak. Not the turning rocks to lava strikes I have remember...
Hey you really think Xerath's gonna waste that much power on one lass? He's got better things to worry about.
FeeNeeX (EUNE)
: how did you make your post to look like that just curious
Just put the youtube video url where it was appropriate.
: awesome cinematic. I think the one who's attacking taliyah is xerath :)
Most assuredly. Can't mistake those giant balls of blue arcane energy.
: Did... did {{champion:21}} just died in the cinematic? Because I fail to see how she could get out of that alive. I mean, it's not just the drowning or even the tentacle. Is the onslaught of Shadow Isles spirits that get over her just when the scene transitions into {{champion:236}} . Edit: Now I realize that's even worse, because rewatching, I thought: "And how she pretends to fire a flintlock pistol underwater?".
Most likely this is an Illaoi given Nagakabouros test. In the end of her scene she's grabbing hold of her gun, implying she's about to shoot the tentacle and get to the surface right quick.
Rioter Comments
: Swain may be Urgot’s arch rival. But to Swain, Urgot is simply a minor miscalculation.
I've got to imagine he considered this though. Maybe not Urgot becoming an anarchist, but certainly getting free. I don't expect Swain to not have had some sort of idea in mind just in case.
seba7290 (EUNE)
: Yeah, it's not exactly good for his plans that a person who actively opposes him has a large following centered in zaun.
I imagine Swain as having eyes in a lot of places; Shurima, Demacia, the Freljord, Ionia, Bilgewater, things of that nature. If I'm honest the only places I feel like he won't be actively looking are Mount Targon and Icathia.

: Which champions are confirmed to have played a role in the noxian invasion?
Known individuals who were in the middle of the war at some point: - {{champion:103}} Active during the invasion, but she didn't do anything to affect the war beyond eating some Noxian's memories for her own interests. - {{champion:122}} Confirmed in "Blood of Noxus", he was a participant in the war. - {{champion:119}} Similarly to Darius, he was shown in Ionia during the war in the same comic. - {{champion:39}} Current lore has her being a part of the Noxian invasion and I don't see that changing with her VGU. - {{champion:43}} Same situation as Irelia. - {{champion:141}} Brought in by Noxus, turned by Zed. He was super young at the time; a child soldier. - {{champion:203}} A weird one but considering Kindred are death, yes they would have participated. Omnipresence gives you the ability to do that. - {{champion:240}} He's talked about the invasion with Skaarl, he's been a part of every Noxian campaign, and in "Paint the Town", is almost certainly the yordle referenced as being used by Noxus during the invasion. - {{champion:11}} Same as Irelia and Karma. - {{champion:92}} Same as Irelia, Karma and Yi. - {{champion:98}} I actually don't recall if it's confirmed, but the war would assuredly have drawn his attention at least. Whether he actually fought Noxus directly I dunno. - {{champion:27}} "Engineering the Nightmare" confirms he was still enlisted by Noxus to participate in the war. - {{champion:77}} Same as Irelia, Karma, Yi and Riven. - {{champion:157}} Same as Irelia, Karma, Yi, Riven and Udyr. - {{champion:238}} Worked to keep Ionia safe during the war. Unknowns: - {{champion:84}} She's a bit murky cuz her role in the Kinkou would ordain that she participate, but I always figured she was among the youngest champions, maybe 19 years old. The invasion was still a few years ago though, and I don't expect Ionia to force children to fight. - {{champion:55}} As an assassin she'd have use in the war, but who knows really with her. I'd say it's likely she participated though. Why wouldn't she? - {{champion:7}} Doesn't feel like the type to get involved, but if Ionia's got some magical relics of importance then why not? She trusts Elise enough to be willing to trade the lives of her subordinates for such relics, though in this case she might get others to do that work. - {{champion:64}} Current canon for Lee's a bit messy, but I'd still say he participated. Nothing's confirmed though. - {{champion:37}} Time frame for Sona's bio is messy at the moment, and her current state as an Ionia's also dubious. If she's still Ionian by birth, then I imagine she was affected by the war. - {{champion:16}} She's been moved to Mount Targon with her new bio, so whether news of the war reached her there for her to then go and help Ionia is a bit of a mystery. - {{champion:163}} Timeframe's a bit tricky. She was sent over by Noxus, but the timeframe for when the invasion actually ended relative to when she met Noxus is a bit unclear. Definite no's: - {{champion:202}} Stuck in prison. - {{champion:134}} Stuck in school. - {{champion:110}} Stuck in a pit. - {{champion:498}} Stuck at home. Speculative Potential Participants: - {{champion:432}} Bard's snatched relics from the grasp of Noxians in Ionia before, but it was before the invasion as far as we know. Might he have needed to jump in again? - {{champion:28}} I mean a large scale continental invasion's gonna attract a demon who loves pain and torment right? - {{champion:41}} He did attack one of the Order of the Shadow's temples, might it have been during the war? Exploiting the fact Ionia's busy in other areas? - {{champion:427}} We don't know where Ivern is or was during the war, but given I don't exactly know how he's supposed to leave Ionia after becoming Mr. Bramblefoot, he might still be there. Plus I can't imagine Noxus's rampage would've done nature any good, which might have drawn his attention and concern. - {{champion:497}} We don't know what his life was like before meeting Xayah beyond just dancing and singing with humans, so he might've seen what it was like in war-torn Ionia. - {{champion:13}} If Ionia's got a World Rune in hiding Ryze might've had to pop up to make sure Noxians didn't find it. I wouldn't trust Noxus with World Runes I'll tell you what. - {{champion:223}} Same reason as Evelynn really. I can't see Tahm missing a meal like this. - {{champion:6}} Potentially? Might've been needed to keep people in line in Ionia. - {{champion:62}} The war might've been the thing that made him crawl down from the Shimon's village, given how vague his bio is about it, or rather the final straw that got him to take the leap, so to speak. All I can bring to mind atm, but feel free to add more or correct me if I missed something.

Not really. > More than just the lightning-quick enforcer of Ionian balance, Kennen is the only yordle member of the Kinkou. Despite his small, furry stature, he is eager to take on any threat with a whirling storm of shuriken and boundless enthusiasm. Alongside his master Shen, Kennen patrols the spirit realm, employing devastating electrical energy to strike down his enemies. If this is anything to go by then Kennen wouldn't get involved since he's the spiritual balancer of the Kinkou, where as Akali is the physical realm balancer and Shen works on both sides. Within the scope of his role in the Kinkou he's not really gonna get involved.
: I wonder if that's around the same age as new Swain, considering they're being set up as kind of arch rivals. At least from Urgot's point of view, I doubt Swain's paid attention to him since his betrayal.
I think nowadays Swain would probably have a bit of an eye towards Zaun and Urgot, since Urgot's becoming a pretty feared figure over there, is someone Swain had to deliberately get rid of, and might be a big point for the future if Noxus ever wants to formally bring in Piltover to the empire, if you catch my drift.
: How old is new Urgot?
Not a lore dude but I would've figured he was in his last forties at the youngest. I can't see Urgot as like younger than 45 the way he is presently.
: Wait. Elune kidnapped and raped Malorne? Jeez, the Night Elves stories are way darker than I remember back in my WC3 days.
It's actually a Tauren story, who believe Elune is one of the Earth Mother's eyes. Story goes Tauren were hunting Malorne, he escaped by jumping to the sky, and got tangled in the stars. Elune told him she'd let him go if he loved her eternally. He agreed, Cenarius came later. Fun fact, Cenarius was also effectively raised by Malorne and the Green Dragon Ysera, so when she died, Elune performed divine intervention and cleansed her tormented soul.
: According to the Universe page for Ornn, they're siblings. Volibear refers to himself as Ornn's brother in Ornn's colour story.
To expand on this, the three are among the pantheon of Freljord's demi-gods, which puts them as related in terms of their origins and powers. They consider each other as siblings, but we haven't even seen how they're "born" yet, beyond The Lost Tales of Ornn speaking to how Ornn was "Firstborn of his brothers and sisters" and he "Leapt in to the world, itching for a fight". It's one of these weird things where demi-gods have weird lineages. To go with a gaming example, Cenarius is the son of Malorne and Elune, which is weird because while Malorne and Cenarius are wild gods, Elune is an actual deity so how did she even concieve a physical child? Also she like trapped Malorne in stars and wouldn't let him go unless she loved him, which is weird. I'd fully expect Riot to wanna make some really out there and old-timey story for how the Freljordian demi-gods were conceieved. Like who are their parents? Give me something as weird but cool as Cenarius's heritage Riot.
: Most of Sona's are okay, but I guess some might be outdated.
Muse, Silent Night and Arcade could use some work for sure, comparatively to others though, like Alistar, she's not in as bad a spot.
: Question on who is the next champion to get updated splash arts
I'd put my money on Nasus, Gangplank, Sivir, Sona, Cassiopeia, Renekton or Heimerdinger. Cuz they're the ones I recall who got updates but haven't gotten new splash yet.
: Xayah should be called Heart Seeker though like all adc's while Rakan is fine but something off with the colors? sweetheart are for mages/supps Is it me or xayah hair should be pink/violet/purle/light pink and rakan's should be blonde?
Sweetheart has two champs in it; hard to then say "Oh it's only for x and y" with such a small roster. Also heartseeker has a mage in it, so by that logic not ever marksman needs to be a heartseeker for valentines.
: Sweetheart Rakan, Sweetheart Xayah (Valentine's day skins)
Well I mean, who didn't see this one coming? They look alright. Card motif's kinda cool. Rakan's gear doesn't jive with me as much as Xayah's though. Not sure why, maybe the colour scheme?
: Order vs Chaos: who’d be next?
{{champion:75}} vs {{champion:58}} {{champion:268}} vs {{champion:101}} {{champion:106}} vs {{champion:516}}
: Are we ever going to see a champ that got a hold of one of the runes?
Well Brand's new intro paragraph alludes to such: > Once a tribesman of the icy Freljord named Kegan Rodhe, the creature known as Brand is a lesson in the temptation of greater power. Seeking one of the legendary World Runes, Kegan betrayed his companions and seized it for himself—and, in an instant, the man was no more. His soul burned away, his body a vessel of living flame, Brand now roams Valoran in search of other Runes, swearing revenge for wrongs he could never possibly have suffered in a dozen mortal lifetimes. And then Zoe comments on world runes in "Meet Zoe": > As Zoe stepped out of reality, she wondered if the new crater would lead some mortals to find the World Rune that was nearby. The tall girl or that interesting boy might even be the ones to discover it. > It would probably be funny if they did, she decided. So Ryze and Brand are both after runes and Targon seems to be very aware of World Runes and their importance, considering they sent their cosmic messenger girl to make one easier to find for the mortals in the area. The first point makes some sense since Brand and Ryze have been listed as rivals on the main League site for years, so there were likely always plans like this in mind, or at least some direction for brand involving World Runes, and the second point just raises more questions about Targon and how involved they actually are in Runeterra.
: Something I noticed in the Targon color story
Well hey I mean: > A massive creature of living stone, Malphite struggles to impose blessed order on a chaotic world. Birthed as a servitor-shard to an **otherworldly obelisk known as the Monolith**, he used his tremendous elemental strength to maintain and protect his progenitor, but ultimately failed. The only survivor of the destruction that followed, Malphite now endures Runeterra's soft folk and their fluid temperaments, while struggling to find a new role worthy of the last of his kind. And this: https://am-a.akamaihd.net/image?f=https%3A%2F%2Funiverse-meeps.leagueoflegends.com%2Fv1%2Fassets%2Fimages%2Fmttargon-once-in-a-lifetime.jpg&resize=:1200 Doesn't exactly not look like an obelisk. So hey, crackpot theory time! Mount Targon wasn't actually a mountain on Runeterra, but an otherworldly object created by Targon and embedded in Runeterra with the intent of having natural defenders pre-installed on the planet. They designed the Monolith to have a bunch of servitor-shards to defend it, but during a great conflict (The Great Void War maybe? I mean it's the Void and a war why wouldn't Targon get involved?), the Monolith was broken, Malphite's kin killed, and Targon instead did some magicy shit to a tall mountain since they couldn't just shove a new monolith in to Runeterra without freaking out all the humans. Thus Mount Targon was made and Targon decided to rely on the mortals of Runeterra as its defenders, providing them with extra help when necessary via coming down themselves and possessing some sod. Alternatively Mount Targon IS the Monolith, just broken, or created from its remains. Alternatively none of this is actually right.
Amxen (NA)
: So, question...
I mean personally I hold the opinion (An opinion based purely on speculation) that the warrior queen that wielded the weapons and sealed the bridge to the darkin weapon was an Aspect, so I would've said that the darkin couldn't hope to vie for control of an Aspect's body because of the Targonian Aspect within. That's just me though. I would still say that even disregarding my above thoughts, an individual darkin is likely not as strong as one of the Targonians, and they wouldn't be able to overpower and control the body of an Aspect with such a powerful force protecting them. I mean sod, Rhaast has a difficult time with Kayn; a mortal human with some forbidden magic. I doubt the darkin would be able to contend with a being of Targon inhabiting a human.
Sancre (EUW)
: Why a hammer when you could have a massive 2 handed flail that would make sejuani's pale in comparison?
Could also work. Options are available.
: What do you believe that the last 2 Darkin should be?
I wanna have the next two darkin be substantially different from the current ones. As such one should be a tank and one should be a mage. Everyone pictures the lass darkin as having a whip or something and I'm just like "No give me the fucking enormous darkin lass with huge muscles and a massive fuck off hammer/axe/shield or something".
Arakadia (NA)

It might be that Vladimir was one of many over the course of centuries who attempted to figure out the secrets of this power, but only Vlad actually figured it out. In his lore Vladimir was taught blood magic by some old elder or some stuff. The trail of bodies led him to a crumbling stone temple. Inside he found an aging monk who appraised him with eyes of pure crimson. Vladimir surprised the monk by returning the wicked gaze with zeal. Recognizing the boy's sinister craving, the monk taught Vladimir how to manipulate and control the fluid of life, often practicing on passing travelers. When it came time for Vladimir to learn the final lesson, the monk warned that failure would result in death. Vladimir did not fail, but success bore a grisly surprise. During the ritual, every drop of the monk's blood was drawn from his body and fused with Vladimir's, imbuing him with his master's magical essence, and that of every hemomancer before him.
Could be a human who figured some of it, and then Vlad perfected it.
DoomRPG (NA)
: Kayn Vs Rhaast who wins canonically?
My personal thoughts on the fight here is that it's skewed in terms of power levels. I'd expect Rhaast to be, as an individual, stronger than Kayn, but Kayn isn't an ordinary human, and Rhaast is encumbered by his imprisonment. It's a depowered darkin vs a powered up human. Mechanics wise I don't think it'll really matter whether Kayn's killing squishies or big bruiser guys in the lore; they'll both become stronger with time. I think that, if the narrative wasn't stacked in Kayn's favour (which it likely is since Kayn's the champion here), then it'd come down to a race between Kayn buffing up himself via training faster than Rhaast can gain strength by feasting off of killings. Basically if huge conflict reaches Ionia's shores again and Kayn has to fight, I figure it'd be Rhaast's opportunity to get free. Otherwise it'll be Kayn who wins as he can improve himself over feeding Rhaast, though there's also the issue of time playing on Rhaast's side, since he's already corrupted Kayn to a degree, and that means he can keep doing it. If will is all that's a deciding factor, Rhaast has a lot he can work with. So overall, I figure Kayn's probably gonna win, but I'd prefer it and feel like it'd be far more interesting if Rhaast did.
: We agree on trolls. We will always agree on trolls.
They're not part of a taxonomy like vastaya. They're not transformed humans of a fallen empire like Ascended. They're not a specialised species that lives in a specific place like brackern. They aren't from another realm like the darkin. So the only reasons that Riot doesn't make a new troll is because they're bad people who don't like trolls. It's HERESY DAMMIT.

: I think Varus' quote "We gave you blood magic" is telling of quite a lot: 1) "Gave" implies they taught it willingly. So I'm having a hard time believing humans just witnessed it and figured it out on their own. 2) Varus was there when whichever Darkin taught humans blood magic did it. So that was pre-darkin imprisonment, when they were free and interacting with humans. (Since Varus has been in the pit since the imprisonment? Is that the case?) I used [Bioluminescence's timeline](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/story-art/ZmsIsYfy-lore-timeline-of-league-of-legends?comment=0001) from the thread a few weeks back. If we take points 1 and 2 into account that doesn't really damage the timeline, just makes Vlad stupidly ancient. They might still preserve the blood mage inheritance thing and just offset when Vlad met his mentor massively. I have a whole basement of crackpot theories about what might have happened. My biggest one is probably at the end of the Darkin wars the Sister recognized Vlad for his arcane potential and taught him to be a weapon against his kind. He eventually betrayed the Darkin because he wanted to reign rather than serve an alien race and was the key figure in the Darkin downfall - as you say, he perfected the art enough to best it's masters.
> 1) "Gave" implies they taught it willingly. So I'm having a hard time believing humans just witnessed it and figured it out on their own. I would've figured that as Varus more mocking of humanity's use of it. Seems like he'd be holding that as a point of condescending disdain over humanity, but that's me reading in to tone that might not be there. I concede your point is strong and valid. > 2) Varus was there when whichever Darkin taught humans blood magic did it. So that was pre-darkin imprisonment, when they were free and interacting with humans. (Since Varus has been in the pit since the imprisonment? Is that the case?) The window feels really small here, unless humans literally drew up blood magic from the darkin weapons during the darkin war, if that makes sense. After the five got stuck in weapons, but before the bridge was broken, such that Varus might've seen humans using it. Beyond that I don't see where the gap would be. Something to keep in mind about the Bio timeline though is that it gives no years. Morde had an empire that lasted for centuries, and if that's after the Darkin War, then it puts Noxus's founding centuries after that, and puts Vlad's birth potentially nowhere near the times when the darkin were up and about. I feel like preserving the "Vlad learned from a prior master" thing makes logic sense. Regardless of that I'm not quick to put the lass darkin as the one potentially connected to Vlad, since again I'm not sure if the timeline'll really pan out that well, and also cuz there's a fifth darkin who's mysterious enough that we can just throw any theory on for the time being for fun. I'd prefer that lass to stick around cuz I wanna see what becomes of a darkin in Shurima, where there's Ascended and Voidborn flesh and blood to make use of, but that's just me. Final point; crack pot theories are fun. I'm the dolt who likes the "Kled stole Morde's skull and got cursed and made insane by it" theory afterall.
: As one of Targon’s biggest detractors even I admit, yeah, the art is very pretty.
You know what I want? More celestial wanderers. Like Soraka. Aliens who came to Runeterra via Targon but ain't Targon. Cuz aliens man. Also want more trolls. And darkin. And yordles. And brackern. I'd settle for a Skarner VGU. And Ascended. And vastaya.
: I agree it would be pretty cool! I channeled my inner World of Darkness fan to produce this [fan theory](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/story-art/TLG6WjbK-speculation-the-female-darkin-blood-magic-romanjewishwod-mythology) as soon as the lore came out. A bit of a problem though: since the Darkin wars were before Noxus, before the Rune wars and in a time generally forgotten by present civilisation, how old does that make Vlad? And what was he doing the entire time empires rose and fell? How would you go about writing a character this fucking ancient?
I would've said that a more likely theory is that, while the darkin might have been the origin of blood magic in Runeterra, they're not the ones who taught humanity, rather humanity learned by observing them. It might be that Vladimir was one of many over the course of centuries who attempted to figure out the secrets of this power, but only Vlad actually figured it out. Personally I'm not a fan of the idea of the female darkin from Shurima being tied in to Vlad's lore, if only because the timing's skewed. If we go by the idea that she was busted out of that tomb ages ago, then the sensible bet is that it was around the time of the Rune Wars, and it's a bit sketchy right now as to whether that alligns with Vlad's lore or not; I don't recall any lore giving timings for Noxus's rise in relation to the Rune Wars. The other sensible bet is that the tomb was uncovered very recently because of Azir's resurrection and Shurima's restoration, which caused rivers to flow, uncovered the buried tomb and left it open for anyone to try and pinch something out of, giving the darkin lass the chance to escape. This also doesn't allign with Vlad's lore. A crackpot theory right here for fun; Vlad witnessed Aatrox wrecking shit, was inspired rather than horrified, and endeavoured to learn the kind of power he used of his own accord. I do like the theme Vlad could bring of perfecting a kind of power foreign to Runeterra and being able to potentially best those who brought it to Runeterra in the first place.
: >{{champion:50}} Ruler of Noxus, got some weird crow shit going on and is just a cool, scary dude. Swain is a raven, not a crow, Sharjooooooooooo! Don't misbird him. Nice work, btw. Your dedication continues to amaze me.
: I enjoy even you, the great lore defender on the boards, mostly refer to the Targon champs by way of aliens up their butts, and being stupid or annoyingly vague. My own pettiness aside. Good write up man. Fun to read.
I'm mostly coming off of a SuperButterBuns binge on youtube so this was highly inspired by that. And yes Targon is stupidly vague. Annoys me too. I still like Targon despite that for some god forsaken reason; might just be because I'm weird. Or because of the pretty art. I dunno.
