Terozu (NA)
: Her name was Asose.
but the description and the powers of the ascended are really similar to xerath
Terozu (NA)
: Her name was Asose.
Is xerath the ascended of this story?
: Ascended get the power from the concept they merge with, but thats about it. The concept doesn't influence their actions or talk to them. Meanwhile, for the Aspects it does. It also gives Aspects knowledge of the past and shit like you can see with Diana

R4ndom F1nn (EUNE)
: Targonian aspects are celestials, whose powers have entered mortal hosts. Such as Atreus, into whose body the celestial aspect of war has entered. Meanwhile the ascended (Shuriman) are just former mortal humans who have been ascended by the power of the sun disc, a magical artifact. The Targonian ascended basically have actual gods in them while Shurimans just have the power of the sun disc. "Are Aspects and ascended celestial avatars in 2 different region?" is a weird question. The Shuriman ascended roam in Shurima, there aren't that many left to begin with. Nasus, Renekton and Azir have a reason for remaining. Former Shuriman ascended, the Darkin, on the other hand roam across Runeterra after being imprisoned in their weapons after the Darkin wars. The Targonian ascended (the guys with gods in them) hail from all across runeterra, like Taric is a Demacian, while Atreus actually comes from one of the Targonian tribes. They just go where they are needed and aren't bound to the mountain in a sense that they cannot roam far from it. Hopefully this helped you a bit.

Rioter Comments
: As someone who speak in spanish, i tried to look at the lore in my language to see what does it say there... > Tanto la espada como el darkin cayeron al suelo. Solo Atreus permaneció de pie, contemplando cómo la estrella que le daba su nombre resplandecía de nueva cuenta en los cielos. > Acording to that, "watching his namesake star blaze back to life again" means that, when Pantheon died, his star stopped shining, but when Atreus cut the arm of Aatrox, the star began to shine once more. He became the new "Phanteon" It doesnt mean that Aatrox died, but he lost the host that he had during that time.

Jaspers (EUW)
: Riot's AMA lore about the whole concepts thing is weird. It's confusing and doesn't make sense because it's hard to grasp. These beings get their power from a source of universal concepts? The concept can't die else it ceases to exist in the universe. Yet these beings can die so the concept doesn't die, does it just return to the source? If Pantheon was War and Pantheon the Aspect is dead, then the concept just returns to the where it resides from where Aspects and Ascended steal their power. Or the concept of War is dead in that Universe. Peace for all, well done Aatrox. Problems with trying to explain magic.

: In one of Riot’s AMAs, a writer mentioned that destroying the Aspect of War wouldn’t be “all sunshines and rainbows.” Presumably, this means that the death of an Aspect (and therefore, the celestial concept/ideal they represent) does not in fact end the physical manifestation of said concept — as seen when Aatrox continued to wage war shortly after killing Pantheon — but rather, it makes it so people are not really able to perceive or recognize the concept for what it really is. It’s hard imagining not being able to understand a concept as primitive as war, or how this would affect other Aspects such as the Sun and Moon (does everyone just stop noticing them in the sky?), but interesting nonetheless! Makes me wonder if Riot themselves know what concept Aatrox represented back when he was an Aspect.

Rodsquad (EUW)
: Is Twitch the only nonmagical creature in League?
since all objects, living beings, places, minerals ... have a soul in the spiritual realm, it is normal that inanimate things in the material world (galio, zac, blitzcrank ...) can evolve easily into thinking beings ( with magic, technology, chemistry ...) because they already have a soul. twitch is a little different, because a rat is a living being, but he was also made more intelligent thanks to chemistry. What I mean is that the evolution in runeterra is different from the evolution in our world, because of the magic, the spiritual world ... so i think twitch is a bit of a magical creature sources for the fact that everything has a soul: history of ivern and dev vastaya (which I can not find anymore) and sorry for my English

Isn t the zilean's tower in another dimension out of time?
: I mean generally Ionia stories in present time are about the after-war period and the loss of tranquility and such going around, so lots of characters from there are going to have feels trips if they're the introspective kind. EG see Gronoc's Irelia comic, Confessions of a Broken Blade for Riven/Yasuo, Yi's short story, and so on. But those are definitely preferable to "generic kill some random nobody" short story for some random champ. Oh, and yordle comical violence like the Trist/Lulu vs. Draven/Tamara thing is just enjoyable. Ditto Veigar's. Nobody gets hurt, but yordles are adorable.
yes, that's right, I had forgotten the stories of yi, irelia and yasuo / riven thank you
Rioter Comments
: Psst, Riot: WE GET IT.
(sorry for my english, I m french) they stared at each other, the fight seeming inevitable. Each ran to the other, throwing themselves into the air: the girl shouted ,a purple mask covering her face. But the man, when they were inches from each other, hugged her with all the love he had missed for years. The two masks fell, revealing eyes full of tears: {{champion:145}} -fa...ther! Do not ... do not touch me ... I'm a monster. And saying that she hugged him stronger and stronger, the tears running down her father's shoulder: {{champion:145}} - go away from me... go away ... go, she said more and more slowly. {{champion:38}} - You missed me so much! You... you re my child. During all these years, you have always been in my heart, kai'sa {{champion:145}} -Oh father! {{champion:38}} -No matter the monster we have become, we will fight together what has separated us, we will save this world hand in hand. And the sun looked in the middle of this arid desert, something that refresh all beings, comforts them, gives them hope : the love.
: From {{champion:10}}'s bio > Kayle fought in many battles, flying at the head of the growing militia and imbuing the weapons of the worthy with her own sanctified fire… {{champion:10}} to {{champion:86}}: "You seem worthy Garen. Now prove it."

: 1. Obviously First of all MORE IXTAL 2. Then more Bandle City because the last lore "update" for it was pretty sad. We learned almost nothing new about it and Riot promised they were going to deep dive on it or at least tell us more about the nature of Bandle City, Yordles and the magic that surrounds them. This didn't happen so we need more THIS YEAR. 3. Shurima, Modern Day Shurima. Azir taking back his Empire, Nasus finding his long lost brother, where Sivir and Taliyah are going next. WHERE THE F*** IS MY BOI RAMMUS All of this has been left hanging in favor of The Void, Icathia and The Darkin. People then go on to say that there is too much Shurima in the lore but really there is no Shurima, just the stuff that originated in Shurima gets a focus. 4. I really really want to see more Targon, learn not just about the celestials, but the Solari, Rakkor and Lunari and stories of everyday religious shenanigans. Proselytizing, Retributive Pogroms and Crazy all-out Fanatism. I want it to get WH40k up in here. For the God Emperor, Praise the Sun, By Azura By Azura By Azura levels of religious devotion. I actually want this above all things, but because Pantheon is coming next we know Targon lore is coming so there is no need to push on it. Hopefully we can shed more light on Celestial Aspects themselves if Pantheon remains Paantheon. If he becomes Atreus maybe less so, but a quest for him too align the Solari, Lunari and Rakkor against the space parasite menace in the sky (or A Sol, the mans been stuck in transit for like 4 years now) would be dope. Yes pls. (Anything but Demacia right now it's getting a bit too much love)

please riot, I have a question. shen can go to the spiritual realm. "Towards the end of the Rune Wars, desperate for victory, cabals of warrior-mages sought any advantage they could find over their foes. Although no record names the first of them to cast off their flesh and enter the spirit realm" from nocturne bio so shen uses shadow magic no? I am a little lost...
Aribailo (NA)
: Kinda a tangential topic, but we know that there are Vastaya in the jungles in/around Ixtal, so I was wondering, do the people of Ixaocan have to take into consideration the effects their extensive use of magic has on the lives of their own people and the lives of Vastaya that live near them? What do they do to handle the seemingly abundant amount of magic that for all appearances looks as though it rivals the level of magical integration that is in Ionia?
ixtali used elemental magic, not spiritual magic
: What do you think is so special about Galio?
maybe magic can create life/soul
: Yep, you've done a great job of quoting every single line left intentionally obscure, with nothing concrete. Hell, you even included one of the lines that works against you, "Poppy’s been tasked with delivering a legendary hammer to a hero who will become legend." And _especially_, that line by O'Bryan. Saying that she is what gives the hammer its strength contradicts the idea that the hammer has any special value in the first place. If it's really Poppy, not the hammer, then it stands to reason it doesn't matter what hammer she's using. Nevermind the fact she shows just as much strength with her completely ordinary buckler. Though the contradictions are more a sign of O'Bryan being a poor writer, the fact of the matter still stands that nothing in the story says concretely that she is the hero. In fact, you've pointed out more lines that serve as evidence that she isn't.
” Players know one thing Poppy doesn’t: The hammer is right where it needs to be." lol you are really stubborn. you do not accept rioters' comments, so I stop answering you. "you can t make drink a donkey that is not thirsty." Keep thinking what you want, but everyone (except you) understands this essential part of the poppy lore. Good luck to explain in this post that rioters and poppy creators have been wrong and lie to us about her lore. {{sticker:galio-happy}}
: Feel free to quote anywhere in her lore where it states she's the hero. {{sticker:slayer-jinx-wink}} Is her title _The Hero of Demacia_?
"But what Poppy possesses in resolve, she lacks in ego, as it never even occurred to her that she might be the hero Orlon described." "Unfathomable feats of strength. Victory over impossible odds. The hallmarks of a great hero are almost always obvious, especially to the person displaying them. Almost always. Poppy’s been tasked with delivering a legendary hammer to a hero who will become legend. Journeying through Runeterra, she uncovers a number of would-be wielders, but never suspects the hammer might have found the right person already. The power of the hammer, the responsibility of her mission" from https://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/page/champion-update-poppy-keeper-hammer and this was confirmed during his rework: "Though she’s been carrying the hammer for a long, long time, Poppy hasn’t yet realized that she’s what gives the hammer its strength. O’Bryan explains, “If you were to ask Poppy, she would probably think she’s nothing special. Everything she’s doing is because of this hammer she’s carrying around. But really, it’s all coming from her.” Players know one thing Poppy doesn’t: The hammer is right where it needs to be." from https://na.leagueoflegends.com/en/news/riot-games/editorial/arsenal-forging-poppys-hammer so?{{sticker:poppy-wink}}
: It'd be an interesting development if Poppy weren't the hero. And several story elements point to that actually being the case. First and foremost, it never mentions that she can do anything with the hammer that Orlon could not. She trained with him for years. If the things she can do with it weren't similar to what he could do, she'd have noticed. And in the monster hunter story, there are two important details that point to her not being the hero depicted. First being that they're braids, not pigtails. But second and more important being that it doesn't mention her ever being where she's headed in search of him. Your claim that yordles "don't understand the passage of time" and can think they're somewhere else doesn't have any basis. **** It's almost definitely a joke about her being oblivious, but all of the concrete details in the story actually point to her not being the hero. Just imagine what the true hero can do with the hammer, if Poppy can do this much.

Of course she's the hero. this is the most important part of her lore {{sticker:poppy-wink}}
: I kind of agree. There was a time I cared about the lore but that lore and those champs are in the memory hole now along with my cares.
So why do you speak here?
: I would love to see what is going on with Anivia and Trundle.
yes, new anivia lore, please. {{sticker:zombie-nunu-hearts}} and I want to know more about true ice

that's not canon is it in the universe? no so it's not canon there are only watchers in the void. The voidborns are born in runeterra because they are made of corrupted material by the watchers. It comes from the bio of vel'koz
: Possible Directions for Cho’Gath in the Lore.
WOw! It's awesome! really, I like all the possibilities a lot. the only sad thing is that we can never have all these lores, because there is only one cho'gath :) Really, well done. I have greatly appreciated your ethimology of the word "cho'gath", including "sai" (desert) and "naga" (monster, dragon, as naga-kabouros: language buhru is close to the language of ixtal) I see that you have been paying attention to the details and that's great because it helps to make cho'gath more consistent in runeterra. I wish so much that one of these lore is official. So ... just thanks (and sorry for my bad english)
: Given he's the closest thing to a Kaiju league has I think it might be a safe bet that he could be hiding in the ocean and he's in some form of hibernation. Imagine being a citizen of Piltover and you look out of your window one morning and see Cho'Gath approaching... that would be an incredible bit of lore. Or it's possible he's in the void and there's not portal big enough to let him through, cos the Icathian and Freljord rifts are sealed. The Xer'Sai seem to be building a massive void construct, maybe it's a portal to let him through

: No, it's not. Their line of logic after Azir died was this: I no longer have an emperor to serve. But wait, I'm a god. So yeah, let me take over everything. Except they all thought this, and began subjugating and enslaving humans. So if they're godlike beings who are simple humans with petty emotions, why did they not come to this conclusion PRIOR to his death? If they were enslaving humans anyway, why did someone like Azir stop them? It's not coherent AT ALL, because it makes no logical sense why gods would listen to a human, then suddenly remember they're gods and start enslaving them after that one human died.
