: [Spoilers] Lux: Issue Nr. 1 - Feedback, Discussion and Questions
: Favourite place on Runeterra that isn't a region and why?
WarWork (NA)
: Hey Bioluminesence. Just hoping for some non meme answers
/walks by. Oh, hello! Personally, from an in-world story logic perspective, I think the idea was that as Gallio is meant to nullify magic on the field, just having a chunk of petricite on a wagon isn't going to be enough against larger magical forces (as there were more of in Demacia's past). To protect a large number of troops against a large number of, let's say, bloodmages, moving something that can have a wide area of effect might make sense, even if it produced challenges in transportation. Moving large objects across large distances (though not intercontinental, as that's not really Demacia's bag, baby) is something that's been done by various civilizations since time immemorial (such as the Welsh stone used to build Stonehenge about 3800 years ago, give or take a few Mondays). So it's not like it's impossible to put Galio out to the battlefield, particularly when it's not too far beyond the edges of Demacia's territory, but the threat would need to be pretty high to make all the effort worthwhile. In regard to him not making sense, for Demacia, he hasn't made sense for quite a while. He fell into legend as, perhaps, Galio's cumbersome nature became less worthwhile as the level of magic threats deteriorated, hence him being left to sit for the grass to grow around for so long. Keep in mind that Galio's origin seems to imply his sculptor, Durand, created something a bit outside the box compared to what was commissioned. Though they didn't get what they expected, the Demacians were able to make use of the stone giant's eye-opening proportion as a magical shield and something to strike fear into enemies' hearts from above the treeline. Who knows what the Demacians actually wanted Durand to make, or why the sculptor created what he did (if he's anything like me when I'm writing a bio, he probably got carried away, or was insane, either really). In any case the happy accident that is Galio proved to be valuable despite his challenging size. Just my two pennies for the 'story logic.' Mainly I just think it's cool we have a living, anti-magic, alabaster giant thundering around when we fancy, both in-game and in-story.

It's great to see where things are headed. Lots of exciting stuff coming down the pipe from the teams. And it'll be all the better with Ariel and Laurie's attention!

: Then you don't know Jaredan xD
: Are Jaredan and Reav3 one and the same?
Nope. We just share an enjoyment in teasing.
Sahn Uzal (EUW)
: I feel a strong love and hatred for your endless teasing. Goddamnit.
: Jaredan, I feel like I deserve some kind of explanation
Hi Dolljointed, As has been mentioned elsewhere, SG Lux is not Lux. 'Prime Runeterra' Lux has had no change in the portrayal of her sexuality, whatever that may be. I'm very sorry you feel I lied to you, it was certainly not my intent. When I responded to your original post, it was in regard to exceeding the expectations that have been set previously in handling the topic of sexuality in League's stories. I still believe we will do much better than we have previously, though that in itself isn't a promise to make Lux herself gay. I'm sorry if I gave you the wrong impression, it was in no way meant to be malicious or deceptive. To be clear, what I mean is this: we are aware of a lack of representation of LGBTQIA in previous stories and characters. Many of us at Riot fit into one or more of the letters in the aforementioned acronym. There are reasons why I can't go any further in my explanation of things specific to content, which sucks, I know, but it's one of the pitfalls of the conversation. I wanted to respond to you to say we hear you, to give you encouragement that we didn't take gender/sexuality issues lightly, and that I have complete belief that we will be demonstrating that through content. However, there are things that I couldn't, and still can't go into due to responsibilities to product teams, etc. I did not intend to specifically imply that Lux is lesbian, and if I did so, I apologize. What I wanted to state is that we will do a better job in expressing the many colors of the rainbow through stories and characters as we move forward. I still believe that.

: I've only made about 30 of these total, so I'd need to spend a ton more time to get the full roster done unfortunately.
: I swear to god @Jaredan if this is a reference to Tahm Kench and whatever other demons inhabit Runeterra{{summoner:31}}
Naaaaaaaah. And please don't throw, I'm allergic to poro dander.
: Jep, I agree with you. The Universe site could have a blessing for us, but the site is incredible sloppy made. The Search function? A goddamit joke. You can't even tip the name of the color text or short stories, it will find nothing. You only search champions and regions with it. There a lot of things missing and as you mentioned, no way to look after the last update. I found the Jhin Color Text by accident and intentional looked after the Yasuo and some other missing. The last thing, that annoyings me to death is the inconsistency. Why does the Jhin color text in german has a title? Why did they translate the Medarda map to german, but not the Vastayan family tree? Why I have to go for 352432 links to find the Vastaya Race page? Even the Ornn teaser has the same problem. If you have selected the north american region at the Universe site, you can find the teaser, if you go to the Freljord articel and click on the horn from the Champion Roadmap. But for EUW english and german region it doesn't work, as usual. 'cause, you know, it isn't like the biggest playerbase is actually the European one... Rito, pls.
I'll pass your comments along to the Universe team (who are working hard at a variety of things). Thank you all for the feedback!
: The Spiced Cherries FTW.
: I kinda don't want there to be a progressing story over the course of the game.
The story in League of Legends the game is your story through the lens of the Champions you play. The story of Runeterra is one that will evolve due to the choices made by the Champions and those characters around them. I rather love both of those types of story.

: League universe is the moment before the biggest most satisfying sneeze and because its not a story game the lore is always gonna be on the verge of the sneeze. To be fair i love the game and the lore, but man i wanna sneeze.
Get your tissues ready. That sounded less weird in my head.

: There needs to be a faction just for {{champion:240}} even though he's noxian.
Whatever faction it is, Kled already owns the land it sits on. Dagnabbit.
: Xerath is Shuriman. If you mean as in that he is Rogue you can also say the same for Lucian, Tahm Kench and Ahri for example as they don't affiliate themselves with anyone.
Oh Lucian might have forgotten his affiliations, but not everyone has...

Meep Man (NA)
: I understand, however, with the way lore is now, it feels like I'm watching a show that is taking at least ten seasons and hundreds of episodes to get to the part where everything actually comes to a climax. I appreciate everything we have gotten so far, but I wish there was far more development of what is on the playing field currently than simply infinitely filling the world with more and more stuff.
I agree with you. We (by that I mean Riot) have a lot of balls in the air, and though we have had to do some redefining and fleshing out of some of our Champions and regions that were (or still are) too amorphous (which has been valuable), we also need to pay off some of the things we've set in motion previously. I hope we can deliver things that will excite you as much as they excite me and other folks who are burning to get them to you. I'm sorry I have to be so vague, as I often am, due to production concerns, but yeah we want you to see Ashe raining down ice from the sky, Garen standing across from Darius on a battlefield, Taliyah standing before Azir, and more. We still have much to do. I hope we have begun to build more trust than we did particularly pre-Burning Tides, but we know there's a lot more to earn. All I can say is that from my perspective, there are Rioters old and new challenging things in a way I haven't seen before--and that's saying something--to make these things happen.
: So he's -twice- as big. Got it.

Meep Man (NA)
: Anyone Up For a Multi-Faction, Gigantic Event?
I know this is being a tease, which is my comfort zone (just ask Necrit and his gang of lore translators), but think less of these stories as necessarily being 'events' -- which have a variety of definitions anyway. Will these all be 'Burning Tides' style events? No. Will they be lore bundles like Demacia, etc? Maybe, probably not. However, I think just about everything on that list is something that could be either a long-form story or at least a story that can be big enough to be its own thing. I can't be specific, and I'm sorry about that, it's purely due to production reasons and respecting the work of different teams, but we want to tell the stories you mention, as well as the stories that build toward them, and the stories that lead on from them.
: Is that Morde's canon size though? Holy shit.
Nah. It's not prime canon. It's Penta-canon!

I think Darius's relationship with Swain is complicated. And evolving.
Ralanr (NA)
: So Kayn's story made me realize that Noxus's military recruitment might be a little messed up.
I wouldn't take the horror of Kayn's experience as typical of Noxus's approach or attitude to recruitment. The Ionia conflict saw some very strange things happen within the Noxian military and beyond. I can't talk about them yet. But that day will come. This horrendous tease has been brought to you by the celebration of Independence Day. Happy 4th to those who celebrate it. {{sticker:slayer-jinx-catface}}

: I know It is not the best place to ask it, but is there any reason that you have stopped using your ask fm account? It was fun to read... When I need disappointment (sometimes life is not enough), I check your ask fm account. {{sticker:zombie-nunu-bummed}}
That's very kind of you to say. I'm sorry, it's honestly just a case of I've been changing a bunch of stuff in what I'm doing behind the scenes here (all for the better), and being a better father and husband by being less crazy with my time (No Scott, you won't go on the boards at 2am, bad Scott!) so I've been a bit sidetracked. Essentially every now and again I'll take on a project that I think is important and it swallows up my time and focus. Saying that, I'll try to pop on here and there and gabber a bit more.

: "Congratulations, ma'am, it's a healthy darkin/boy!"
I'd avoid smacking him on the arse. Things could get... slicey.
: So what you're saying is, lore wise, we will only ever see him in the middle ground?
No. The 'middle ground' is just the beginning of the journey. You'll get a good idea of where he can go.

I'd say that's pretty impressive. But his gameplay tells us that it will probably consume him in the end. Also, I can't imagine Zed would keep a discipline, who could become more powerful and would be able to take control of his order. ... we aren't getting our updated Zed lore, are we?
That's one of the possibilities, for sure. But it's not the only one...
Splision (NA)
: I know this was only a couple of years ago, but damn do I feel the nostalgia. Burning Tides was my first big lore event, and I've been captivated by the world of Runeterra ever since.
Bultz (NA)

I can't go into details right now, but to answer your question: Oh yes, we certainly do.
Goldbera (NA)
: Riot should take LOL lore to a next level, comic?
Consider it considered. {{sticker:slayer-pantheon-thumbs}}
GreenLore (EUW)
: Lissandra likely did not win the war. The war of the 3 sisters is pretty much the main storyline of the freljord,it won't just end offscreen because of the votes(heck if it ends,it is likely going to end with the destruction/assimilation of the other 2 main tribes). In fact they never said that this poll would decide who would win the war.
: Rakan and Xayah's bios are kinda short
We're looking to be more concise with the bios, dial in on the core nature of the Champ, and have a little more breathing room in the color to exemplify them.
: How would they handle meeting the Triumvirate? And how would Jhin react to them? Would Yi and Wukong befriend them? I HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS.
Jhin loves a blank canvas. Nevermind three.
Elfezen (NA)
: Could Wukong be the Leader of the Vastaya?
: @riot how different would the ionian invasion have been if Swain would have been assisting?
: Jaredan is the god of lore, and the weaver of fate He just knows (and probably created the relationship)
Woah there! I am in no way a god of lore or the creator of their relationship. I just kinda hang out in the team's general direction and get to know stuff and here and there make the odd suggestion or two. Mainly I get to hang around talented people who make me feel stupid in the best way.
: ><redacted!> XAYAH AND RAKAN
: @Riot Lore Persons - Does Rakan not actually love Xayah?
A lot of cool discussion over reasons why, but I will just say that Rakan absolutely does love Xayah.
Arakadia (NA)
: So Bard would look very different upon traveling to somewhere like the Void?
Yes, but he would most likely avoid it. Y'know. A void? Huh? Huh? ... I'll get my coat.
: He is magical energy that takes a physical form in order to interact with dimensions.... so, no. You see the magical sparks that leave his "body" when he dies? that IS Bard. That "Body" that you see its only like a puppet created by him.
ED speaketh the truth! Bard takes whatever's nearby to manifest physically when he enters a new dimension.
: I do love Matt's story about Ekko +1 What no {{champion:240}} {{champion:240}} {{champion:240}} {{champion:240}} {{champion:240}} {{champion:240}} ???? You got something against fart jokes?!?
Yup, I also like the feels in Matt "FauxSchizzle" Dunn's Lullaby. I'm all about the feels.
