: Is there a Tahm Kench skin in the works?
T h e G o d s H a v e S p o k e n
: Question for any
Like Spideraxe said, very often I've seen videos of artists using photoshop, which seems to be their primary tool when creating splash art. I also know that they use aftereffects to create the client loading screens, if that's any help!
: Which champions you feel their default skin is better than their RP ones?

: Is there a Tahm Kench skin in the works?
I cant believe no one mentioned this in this thread, but what about Gentleman Tahm Kench? He seems like a pretty good candidate for that skinline, and there's only two champs who have a skin in that line, being Gnar and Cho'gath (correct me if I'm wrong). There's already a concept page of him from a previous thread. http://orig12.deviantart.net/4fbc/f/2016/067/b/c/gentleman_tahm_kench___skin_concept_by_fivetinsoldiers-d9udmax.png Yet another great concept which seems to have gone unnoticed.

I know that's quite a few, but it at least narrows down a multitude of themes to just 5 of them. I'd personally love to see a Dinosaur version of Tahm (he's got all them teeth but at what cost?). Is Infernal included in that? Come to think of it, I could see an Infernal Kench. Maybe. But I still think High Noon and Dark Star are his best options for serious skins, since both of his current ones are comical. Prehistoric Kench is a possibility, but Riot hasn't really touched on that skin line. I don't see many people using the skins and I'm not sure how popular they are.

Infernal Kench sounds very interesting, it would be nice to see how they remake him to fit the aesthetics correctly. I personally like the prehistoric skins, and I don't know why they're not more popular.

: The Man With the Grinning Shadow mentions a potential High Noon Tahm Kench a couple times. I've said this before, but this would really fit his theme, since even his main lore seems to be remeniscent of a Victorian-age robber baron from Louisiana (given the accent). Only go a little further west for proper "High Noon" environment. I hope that, if there's another High Noon event next year, Kench is included. > [{quoted}](name=4 Step Cadence,realm=NA,application-id=6kFXY1kR,discussion-id=Zs0E540I,comment-id=0000,timestamp=2018-12-23T23:48:34.211+0000) > > Just give him and Nocturne Blood Moon skins.

I don't think Tahm Kench would fit Blood Moon. Nocturne might, but Kench's whole appearance doesn't fit that cutthroat thematic of Blood Moon. The same applies to Death Blossom and the whole Eclipse universe; Death Blossom people in particular are supposed to be lithe and deadly. Now Dark Star, on the other hand, would be an excellent fit for someone who eats people and has a giant all-consuming maw of a mouth.

Somehow I feel that Dark Star skin aesthetics wouldn't work out with Tahm. I really love the idea but I personally cant picture it being a successful skin which is pleasing and also lives up to epic skin standards. High Noon Tahm sounds wonderful! Maybe instead of his cutlery, he pulls out guns instead, with his passive!
: Just give him and Nocturne Blood Moon skins. Evelynn has one, so why not give the other demons Blood Moon skins? There is also Death Blossom, which showcases mimicry in nature. He could easily mimic some form of water flora. The Fables skin line, where he could be a Kappa(he could also embody a Kappa in the Blood Moon universe).

There was a really cool Cheshire Cat concept which I saw a while back, I'd love if some of these ideas were taken into consideration. Your ideas are cool too, I'd love to see a floral version of Tahm!

: After watching this music video, I have one thing to say about Akali
I like the idea of a chroma for her UV light outfit. However, I feel like it could be achieved by adding it to Evelynn's passive, and Akali's shroud. When Evelynn's passive kicks in, she can see Akali's UV, or when Akali walks into her shroud, she can see her own UV, and so can her allies.

Pressing W should let you hear part-mechanical, part-"organic". Everything else about his kit is not mechanical, hence why you won't hear it as often as you do in his cinematic.

: I don’t believe vastaya were originally human. I think they are basically a separate species that evolved alongside humanity. The best comparison is the Neanderthal, though obviously humans in Runterra didn’t wipe them out or breed them out of existence.

They had human ancestors yes, but the Vastaya themselves have always been the hybrid children of ancient humans and the magical shapeshifters of the lands. According the lore, anyway. This tends to get kind of murky when you talk about Nami and the Marai (why did humans copulate with merfolk to make merfolk Vastaya? Why are we required to understand that everywhere Vastaya are, there was a human, in a long age ago, who copulated with a mystical shapeshifter to spark a tribe of beings? It gets weird, and starts to lose logical sense once you think about it). > > Anyway, the Vastaya are no more human than gorillas are. We have the same ancestors, millennia ago, and we all share very similar DNA, but they are distinctly their own species due to how they grew and evolved differently from proto-humans. Vastaya are similar in this sense, though the general scope and speed of evolution in regards to them is a little magically sped up. They're very much a different species from humans, enough to not connect themselves to the humans, and as such, they do not consider them kin. "The vastaya are chimeric creatures of Runeterra whose lineage contains both human blood and the spiritual magic of a pre-human race". From the official League of Legends Universe page about the Vastaya, it says that Vastayans contain human blood, through lineage. What my pea-brain got from it is that essentially, humans were part of the sole reason Vastayans were made in the first place. Yes, they aren't 100% human (I should have specified that to begin with, oops), but humans had a big role in their creation and eventual species. > [{quoted}](name=Warlord Dienekes,realm=NA,application-id=6kFXY1kR,discussion-id=WcEuo9XE,comment-id=0006,timestamp=2018-09-27T16:05:17.378+0000) > > If humanity evolved in Africa why do some people hate black people? > [{quoted}](name=Zapzya,realm=OCE,application-id=6kFXY1kR,discussion-id=WcEuo9XE,comment-id=0005,timestamp=2018-09-27T14:53:25.430+0000) > > Humans already hate other humans for being born the wrong nationality, even if they share common ancestors. Kind of similar to that. You do raise good points, but the Vastaya are a species so to say, not a race. With race, at least in real life, more people associate it biologically with our ethnicity, because we are all the same species (human). But Vastaya seem to be a mix, or a hybrid of the sort, therefore making them their own species. Within that species, you will get sub-species. Nami's sub-species lives underwater, Rakan and Xayah's have bird-like characteristics, and Rengar and Ahri take on the form of mammals (despite the fact that Ahri can shapeshift (Ahri is otherworldly)).

: "Big enough to give the best hugs" is the only measurement I have in my notes. But using the splash as a guide, it looks like Willump is about three Nunus high. That would be about twelve feet tall, going by Kestrel's Nunu estimate. That's a bit taller than Totoro, who is [two Satsukis high](https://i.kym-cdn.com/entries/icons/mobile/000/013/901/totorokun.jpg).

: Human food doesn't quite have the _terroir_ Willump is looking for. I.e., magic. {{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}} Sure, things like celery might be delicious, _we all agree_. But giant rock creatures oozing arcane power... now that's the stuff! Also note, in-game proportions don't necessarily reflect lore proportions, since it would be less fun if all you saw was Galio's feet, and Malphite filled the whole screen. The splash should give a better feel for how big Willump is.

: For the first question - you won't be suited for willump belive me. He is quite big as seen on the splash. You can always cosplay him tho. It is not neccessary to be scale 1:1. It will proabably be 1:2 or 1:3 but still.

: What's the monkey amulet that Akali carries from the roadmap teaser and the unfinished animation?
Her lore isn't 100% complete, but since Akali is from Ionia, maybe it has something to do with Wukong and his tribe? In the distance we see burning buildings and such, maybe it was Wukongs home or someplace similar. Or maybe, it was a gift from him which got destroyed after a fight. I only bring this up because the colour of the Amulet is very jade-ish looking, which could resemble the Jade Dragon skin.

I think they're mostly coming from people who just don't think minority characters can be written well and pay off well without being seen as preachy, a political tool, an author filibuster or a publicity stunt. That may be a selfish, subjective assumption. Can't possibly be from people that are sick of agendas forced upon a game and that don't give a shit wether a character is gay or not.

You can decide whether you want to eat other human beings. You can decide to kill, slaughter, crush, murder. Anything that you physically do, is your choice.

: > **I understand I'll probably get downvoted to hell, or maybe called ignorant**, but with so many opportunities to show different communitie**s, I don't understand what's really stopping champion creators / writers from creating more diverse champs**. Sadly I think it's the first half of this sentence that clarifies the second. Zenon mentioned that part of the reason the Taliyah lore didn't go through was for fear of backlash. When the new Varus stuff came out, there were a lot of people with very valid complaints (about his lore, not about homosexuality in general, of course), but there were also a lot of viscerally homophobic remarks. People STILL think it's high-larious to photoshop a KFC bucket into Lucian's hands or whatever. Sadly, I can see why he was worried. Even this thread. As you mentioned down the page, most people who have actually commented here are supportive, and yet I saw it sitting at a -2. Some people just see the topic of "LGBT champs" and instantly smash a downvote. But these discussions ARE important. They are a way of showing Riot that we do care, that there are substantial voices that want LGBT+ representation, or maybe even more importantly, letting LGBT+ League fans know that they aren't alone.

I made a post about a month back asking writers if Rakan had ADHD, and yes, he did! It was a nice addition. You don't need to flatout tell someone you're part of a community, over and over again. Just the slightest nod to it will say a lot of words, whether it be a little flag, a voice line, some art, whatever. Something to let us personally know that there is a champ for **everyone**.

She got a comic, and a few voicelines ingame to show her struggles being away from home without her partner. A LOT of uproar made its way onto the forums, and it made people upset. But that didn't put the game top a sudden halt. People didn't stop playing it because Tracer was gay. They moved on. People make all these things up and say that the company wont benefit from it, but unless the company tries, how will they ever know. People essentially said "Oh cool, Tracer is a Lesbian. I like that." Overwatch, to this day, is still an incredibly popular game. It's encouraged many popular streamers to come out in their own way. It's given other players a chance to relate to Tracer. Characters aren't made by stone-cold people. They're made by people who want to inspire, who want to relate. That is what character development is all about. Even with inherently evil characters, there's still going to be a trait that someone, somewhere, will love about them. The thing about fictional character is that they're NOT REAL! Why would you get so angry and upset over representation of a community with a character that has no impact on your real life? And, to answer your question about whether it's worth it: Yes, it is! Creating an LGBT+ based character actually isn't hard. There are a LOT of resources these days from LGBT folks that help you write, create, and imagine said concepts to a realistic standard. You must remember LGBT+ people aren't anything else other than human. We are all human. We are all written the same way, we just have different personalities, quirks, traits and other things that make us unique, like sexuality or gender. It's not hard at all. People just don't want to try.

If Taliyah isn't white (which she isn't) and if she was to be from a country from Earth, ethnically and correctly speaking, whether Taliyah was a man or a woman, she would still legitimately have those eyebrows.

: LGBT+ Champs
For all the dislikes on thread, you guys seem to be throwing in a lot of positivity, and I appreciate it a lot. If anyone read the source where Taliyah was supposed to be trans, you'll notice a comment underneath it saying that the creators were initially scared. They're scared of receiving bad backlash, because they don't want people to hate the characters they put so much thought, love and time into. The amount of downvotes in such a small amount of time is exactly why the LGBT community isn't really "present" within the game, just because people don't like it. Whilst you could say "make your own characters", will we ever see our own characters in game? Probably not, unless we were a part of the Riot creatives team. For ages I've dreamed of making a character that could not only represent me, but represent everyone within that community. I want to see people enjoying that character, playing them, making theories and drawing art for them. And it hurts when this kind of attitude is taken that "Oh you only want LGBT characters because you're a "special snowflake".", or something just as rude. Representation within large-scale games is hard to come by these days. But to know that characters did actually have a chance to be a part of a bigger community, only to be scrapped because their creators were physically too scared to share that side of the creation.. it really makes me feel sad for the future, you get what I mean?

This actually sounds like a good idea, but if you wanted extra voice lines, it would probably be a legendary skin and they'd have to bring back the same voice actor for him again.
: @RIOT In Regards to Highnoon Lucians Login...
I'm no Rioter but I'm 90% sure that the login themes are created with Aftereffects, which allows different aspects of the picture to be moved. However, it's very finicky sometimes, and depending on how the picture was placed, perspective wise and also thinking about other factors, only certain bits of the picture can be moved. For instance, I notice that Lucian's head is only moving towards his left - that's because the base art portrayed him looking 3/4ths and at the viewer. You can only move what you already have. This may add a little stiffness to other parts of the login itself, but in reality it's quite hard to make something look that smooth with already so much being moved in the first place.
