You're officially in my top 5 Rioters now. Enjoy the honor.

Two questions.
Who would you say is the most mechanically difficult mid laner for you to play?

Is #116 Demacia/Noxus or associated with somewhere else/independent?

First off Runaan, I'd like to applaud you for your lore based focus, and the champions you've worked on. Every one of them so far has been a hit with me!

Now here's a question that's been bugging me. When is the next time we're getting a male AP Carry/Mage? The last one we got was Ziggs which was almost a year and a half ago.

I personally would love to see more skins explore the past, future, and alternate realities of champs. So I'll start pitching these ideas!

Great question. As you've noticed, most of our bios are Chapter Ones - telling the beginning of a champion's story. In the Freljord event, we continued the stories for many champions. So yes - we want to do more Chapter Twos. The question is: what's the best way to do that? We're still figuring that out.

Great idea. We've been talking about having a home for teasers on the Lol.com website. And as I said earlier, I'd also like to have the writing team have some sort of ongoing presence online, putting out episodic content of some kind.

Do you prefer joke skins or serious skins?

This is just a suggestion, but for the idea of added Chapters 2, 3, etc. Why not use the beginning of each season as a new time to add the next chapter for a champion? If this had been started to begin with everyone would be up to chapter 4 depending how old the champ is. And you can do it retroactively for certain champs and stuff. It's just a suggestion, and one I hope you like.

You were talking about Riven...does that mean a new skin? More in-depth lore?

Viktor. Hands down. He's too hard! Stupid Ziegler.

#116 is associated with a faction.

Would be awesome to see Ahri get some kind of foil or strong relationship. "Tell me a secret" is one of my favorite VO lines in the game.
