Jango Mage (EUNE)
: In case you change Vel'Koz's Lore
Most other characters have some first-person action through their character stories, as expected. Not sure on Vel'Koz's chance of being updated in the Void update, it's extremely likely though. And with Zilean's new short-lore making him an ICATHIAN mage that learned to control time, he has even MORE reason to take an interest in the Chronokeeper, so don't worry 'bout that one!

: Riven updated splash
Are you talking about the three dents meant to represent the Trifarix? If so, I don't see it, did Riven get a new splash?
: @Riot, with the Void lore update coming with Kai’Sa, will we be able to know who Kog’Maw’s daddy is?
My guess is were getting another wave of Void lore alongside Kogmaw's Daddy as a Champion. My initial theory was that Cho'Gath was going to be reworked into the 'Void entity' that controls the Void, the one that Aurelion Sol is scared of. After Kai'sa however, it's apparent that she's hunting down a bunch of Cho'Gaths and that they're probabyl aren't too uncommon, leaving the space of 'Void Entity' wide open for Kogmaw's Daddy to fill!
: If Runeterra had a “Justice League” or “Avengers” who would you want on the team?
I'd imagine {{champion:13}} would be their 'Nick Fury'. A travelling, powerfully 'wise' mage that should learn that working as a team is more helpful in saving the world than working by himself

Void born namin conventions are actually actually Shuriman though
: Here’s some stuff. Her God is one of many but, as nation of islands, the god of the sea and life is pretty major, major. Buhru is very advanced in its use of magic, monsters, and magically powered golems. The religious roles of her faith are divided between the sexes. Some roles only women fill, some roles only men fill (and a fair amount of the lower ranks are unisex). A lot of the work for the faith relates to two things: 1. The sea 2. Kicking people into doing something - Esp stuff that will aid the church or various cities. (Example: “What are you doing right now..? Nothing! Because, the rain made the road too muddy to travel!!! That is an excuse!! Go make a stone road to the beach. And a dock. Make both the best you’ve ever seen. On that road, build you name in giant stones so your tribe and family will remember the gift you built!)

: I'm near certain that Rammus is a Baccai
Baccai are actually very well known in Shurima, sort of like a hermit social-caste. Along with that, they often appear more malformed, like a twisted, horrifying grotesque version of what animal they were meant to be. Rammus on the other hand, is actually revered as much more than a Baccai, most believe him to be a spirit or even as a god, many even having rituals about him. So it's more likely that Rammus may be a spirit/demi-god on the same level as Ornn, Anivia and Volibear, just not as talkative of course.
: Any questions, guys - I'm right here. :-)
I have one: Katarina's father, General Marcus Du Couteau? What happened to him? Katarina's lore was honestly the most dissapointing in my opinion for the Noxus update, mostly due to how incomplete it feels, it doesn't even mention Du Coueteau's death, nor Katarina's whereabouts or show any form of personality! Swain does mention Marcus in an interaction with Katarina: https://youtu.be/IaGaqTW6QPQ?t=7m7s This is a slight hint that Swain really had no hand in Du Couteau's death. I personally have a theory that Katarina is the one who killed her father, blaming it on Swain, or that the Black Rose had some hand in it from the shadows. However, Urgot mentions THIS: https://youtu.be/0wOh_BJFpAA?t=2m52s So which is it? Will we see more of Du Coueteau in the future?
: Imagine how awesome that would be, to get Fizz and Nautilus in line with their new short bios. :-) I'd love to make that happen.
Other than that, I just want more info on both the Serpent Isles, Buhru as well as the native peoples of Bilgewater in general, the Polynesian and Islander culture is very attractive for me!
: Narrative in 2018
YES. WERE GOING BACK TO BILGEWATER! New Bilge champ maybe? Alongside some more info on Nagakabourous, maybe even a small group Lore Update with {{champion:105}} and {{champion:111}}?
: New Katarina Lore
There are hints that she actually did. Some people ended up translating the Swain interactions with Katarina and mention something along the lines of "Do they know you killed your father, or do they still blame me?" In English they don't explicitaly say who killed Du Couteau, but after reading Katarina's lore it wouldn't be too unlikely that she'd do it.
Arakadia (NA)
: Is the next champion Kassadins daughter?
A few other notes: The title of the New Champion's teaser is "***Suiting Up*** a New Marksman," maybe the new champion has some suit similar to Kassadin's that lets them be immune to the void? Or maybe the suit *is* from the Void? IDK, I've been keeping a close eye on these since Zoe's "Toying with Twilight" teaser. Along with that, "...we _**locked onto**_ a marksman that rewards players who aren’t afraid to hunt for the perfect opportunity, no matter where it takes them. This new champion’s best players will _**go deep into enemy territory and thrive**_, while the weak players will perish, never to be heard from again." Notice the term "Locked onto" and how the "enemy territory and thrive" part, sounds like pieces of her kit maybe?
: Hey GreenLore, we're actually going to have more time with Noxus throughout the year as we do more faction updates moving forward. While this update may have been a little smaller overall, we're aiming to increase the overall quantity of lore beats in 2018. Expect some similar focus (in this case, "how is Noxus run?" "what is the military like?" etc) but a wide range of champions as well.
So were getting more League lore updates such as this one overall, just smaller but at a faster pace, correct? How often exactly? Can we expect at least a *little* bit of updated lore alongside every new release? Because if so, that'll be awesome! From the looks of it, we only have 2 big releases this year, and they both came with some astonishing lore aside from their own Bio and Color Stories {{champion:142}} - Gave more details on the 'humans' or Targon, how the Mountain really works and strays away from the horribly and confusingly vague Aspects, focusing more on Targonians (or Rakkor) as a whole. {{champion:50}} - No introduction needed. Brought alongside him a massive overhaul of Noxus's culture, military and leadership. Can we expect similar updates to other factions? [Maybe bring their Lore Icons alongisde them (please)](https://boards.na.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/story-art/VLjrYnqI-future-lore-events)

: With smaller, but more frequent lore updates, what's next?
Maybe that next Void champion, probably Kassadin's daughter, will be more of an 'Icathian' lore update. Not exactly all about the Void-born, but more about what the Void is doing in Runeterra or more about the corrupted humans. For one, {{champion:26}} and {{champion:24}} are now considered Icathian, a new story that'll probably get an update very soon, while {{champion:90}} has VERY close ties to Kassadin's daughter being thrown into the Void.
: Champion Personality Offer
{{champion:516}} is a pretty 'leave me alone' guy, if that helps. Also {{champion:32}}'s whole shtick is literally that nobody likes him nor are they suppose to
Octahedron (EUNE)
: What is exceptional about Gragas that he is among 140 extraordinary entities?
I'd imagine Gragas is a pretty decent fighter himself, alongside his strange relationship to alcohol and his already enormous size. I wouldn't expect, in reality, that he'd last too long against OTHER 'mortal' Champions with things such as Guns or Professional Murder Training, but he's definetly on the rougher, messier fighting style in a sense? Imagine a wrestling match between him and {{champion:201}}, for instance: https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/fma/images/a/a9/Muscles.png/revision/latest?cb=20130801222850
: On Braum's old page, before the universe, he had Ashe listed as an ally/friendly. I know Ornn is neutral, and doesn't Sej have Voli's favor, if she's using the Ursine?
the WInter's Claw have Volibear's favor yes. I remember a Rioter mentioning that's the reason Sejuani's alliance with the Ursine is a 'big deal' now.

: {{champion:99}} and {{champion:134}} don't have a problem with controlling their powers :T. This offends me. Do not underestimate ball lady. Plus lux is a prodigy and annie was the same as well before her lore update. Why these examples. Also we have........ {{champion:101}}? Actually a good point was made here
Xerath was the child of two intelligent scholars and had to learn basic magics, and then he got ascended. Not born with it, Xerath had to study and steal Azir''s ascension
: Annie's video made me realize we dont have any other child characters
{{champion:163}} {{champion:245}} {{champion:99}} are Teenagers {{champion:142}} though with the exception of the ancient Aspect, can still count as physically being 13 {{champion:32}} is a kid but still an immortal Shuriman fairy tale {{champion:96}} is a VOID FETUS So our only other 'normal' kid in League is actually {{champion:20}}
: Eh, I don't really care too much about the sex of champions. More often than not, a specific sex just fits better lore wise and thematically depending on their theme as a champion. I really can't imagine champions like Annie or Lux being male.
I forgot to mention this but it's not even just the sex of the Champion. As cool as their lores are, this 'being born with powers' thing is starting to be a bit of a cookie cutter mold of "I can't control my powers and I must face consequences for it" Taliyah left her village in fear of her powers Lux was ashamed of her powers due to Demacian society And now with Annie having been feared by her family for her powers Syndra's kinda the most interesting as she doesn't see these limits and just wants MORE power.

Yordles are all naturally magical and adept in the spirit realm. Kennen especially.
: Twisted Fate was born with his magic. {{champion:202}} uses some, but idk if he was born with it. {{champion:64}} maybe?
I think that it's more natural for Ionians in general. I wouldn't say that Jhin was exactly born with magical capabilities, but it's just that magic is just so much more common for just about anyone in Ionia. Plus, I thought it was mentioned that it's more the Gun and/or Bullets that are magical in nature, probably because of him (or more specifically, because of Ionia). Also, completely forgot Twisted Fate. I think he counts, but it's also mentioned that he was 'taught' the magic by the nomadic river people.

There's a new bio on Universe, but no color story (we figure this animation works as that). Not planning any in-game updates because we feel her splash is high quality and well-liked, her gameplay is pretty solid, and she is still a very popular champion (especially for new players) so we didn't see a lot of value in changing any of that. Her current VO was actually a contributing factor to this origin story: the team asked what Annie would have had to go through to find burning other people fun and playful, and decided there was probably some real trauma there. Which means that ANNIE: Origins really is just that - the first spark that leads Annie to develop the personality we see and know in-game.
Can you ever add at least a little color story In the future? I do think the video properly expresses enough but just for sake of consistency in formatting the lore. Love the animation though!
: I might be wrong here, but I dont think they specified the size of her rework, they mentioned her voiceovers being handled in the same way as the Gangplank rework, by expanding her voice lines rather than replacing them.
"As for her narrative, we want to go with an approach similar to the one we took for the Gangplank VGU, meaning we want to extend her narrative rather than rework it. Instead of a new Akali, this will be a tale of growth and change."

: New Markman confirmed to be Kass' Daughter
I am 90% sure it's going to be Kassadin's daughter. A big part of Kassadin's story is that his daughter was long gone, definitely not coming back, which is why Swain's quote about 'the girl who came back' was EXTREMELY chilling to me. However, I don't think this is segwaying into that 'Super Big Void Lore Event' that everyone's hoping for, we might get that next year with {{champion:31}}'s rework maybe? I don't know, it just doesn't seem right that Kassadin's daughter, one of the most Anti-Void charcaters in-game, is going to lead the Void event. Maybe she's another void-hunter-type alongside her father? Or maybe something more disturbing, like she's partially infected. Other than that, maybe she's got something to do with Icathia instead? ({{champion:90}}, {{champion:24}} and {{champion:26}})

: Just tell me that her parents are still alive in the new lore... please dont "Zac" them.
In all honesty, the death of Zac's parents felt kinda expected for his lore. It sort of adds another reason for him to continue on being a hero, it added a bit of an inner conflict with Zac (has to resist violent urges in order to not live up to the 'zaunite super soldier' that Takeda made him to be) and, personally, I always assumed they were killed. But that's a whole other topic, I wouldn't count on seeing Annie's parents alive. Firstly, we never really heard what happened to them and secondly, we see from some of the Annie art what appears to be an older woman, possibly her mother, laying on the floor as Annie looks in horror.
: Do you think my Boram is a believable Noxian General?
I actually had a neat idea where Boram Darkwill resembled PRE-REWORK SWAIN, without the Beatrice of course. Just a small thought! Maybe we'll be able to seem both Boram and Marcus DuCouteau in the Noxus lore.

Yea I was talking about the In-game icons, no worries though! You can see some of the cropped out versions of those leaked faction icons linked in my post though!
: Not that I expect anyone to have ever noticed but I typically transition between the three Icons on Thanos gauntlet there. I'll probably have one going for a month before transitioning to one of the others, at least now I have a forth rotation! Also we do already have a Shurima, Shadow Isles and Bilgewater Icon. Although two of those aren't free.
We do have icons for Shurima, Shadow Isles, Freljord and bilgewater. But they aren't the 'official ones,' they were more based around events rather than purely the lore (you can see some cropped out versions of these leaked icons in the links I posted) I know, it's pretty nitpicky but I just feel that it helps fit in my 'collection' : ^)

: Good job, I'm now hyped for Annie Lore update. Upvoted.
Thanks! I also like to think that maybe Swain sees something in Annie that can make her a new, powerful leader or asset of the Noxian military. Maybe her new story is a tragedy where her parents sent her away from Noxus in fear of just this? In the past, it's a recurring theme for Annie's parents to be something along the line of Noxian Rebels.

: That somehow reminded me Xerath. I always thought he will show his "good side" and help Runeterra in its darkest moment with his way. What if he fought against the Void? What if he protected Shurima? Imagine Xerath as monster of today and hero of tomorrow.
I like to think that Xerath, though not exactly a all-out-evil character had more of a disturbing 'god-complex' of sorts. He doesn't really want to do evil, hell he didn't even wanna betray Azir in the first place, but he has some strange insatiable lust for knowledge and infinite power that just sort of outweighs his morality in the end.
: Does Amumu have any Friends?
I'd imagine the destructive, pyromaniac demon child of Noxus would make good friends with a cursed entity of plague from Shurima.
: Pantheon and Targon moving forward lorewise
I'm honestly hoping that they do a much larger rewrite on Pantheon and keep him an Aspect of War, but give him more designs and motifs that relate more to an ECLIPSE (Taric is the Aspect of the Protector but he has a lot of motifs that relate to starlight and crystals, so it's not too far off!). What really made me think about this was actually Zoe's release. Zoe is meant to be a aspect of trickery and mischief but she also represents a sort of harmonious existence between Light and Dark (Sun and Moon), as a twilight can represent the mysterious 'inbetween' of the Sun and Moon. Now imagine a counterpart to that in Pantheon, an Aspect of War who represents the literal war and horrifying chaos between the Sun and Moon, rather than a Twilight's harmonious coexistence. Also, this can add an interesting dynamic between the playful childlike Zoe and her complete opposite, a dark and brooding Pantheon. Even in Zoe's story, she mentions how she doesn't like Pantheon because he hurts Aurelion Sol, who she sees as a pet.
