I think this sounds like a great thing for a group of bored fans with writing skills to start playing around with.

How fanfiction works.

You guys know this means "Well, I promised I'd at least run a boilerplate storyline or plan some sort of event, but I've been really tired and stuff guys. Just tell the guys in Graphics to palette swap another teemo skin...."

On a side note, who do I have to kill to get a singed skin. He can't be THAT hard to model to, and I can't see complications like with shaco or somewhat.

Or, has no one had a good idea?

Right?

...
Also, it irritates me to no end no ones called this out... You people not take basic english in high school? I mean, they teach this kind of stuff everywhere...
Right?
....

Any-ways......

While it's clear that EZ-Real meant that in the sense of a doppleganger as an entity which assumes people shapes, and not in the sense of a champion, (Lrn2pronoun noob)
I would hope that'd be a given at some point.... Screw hard random, I want hard REALLLY random.

A bit of everything, honestly. We're currently in the process of improving our channels by which we can deliver this sort of content to you guys. There have been some other pressing matters to work on, but lore development work is making its way to the head of the queue.

Excellent! We lore nerds look forward to this future content!

Agreed! RPGs are my roots (as they are with a others I'm sure), though honestly putting something like that together would be a labor of love more than anything else. Such an endeavor requires a lot of work, and honestly with the limited resources I have at my disposal I couldn't justify putting it to work on an old school pen and paper project.

I think there's room in the future for a coffee table style book that gives the nuts and bolts of what you'd find in an RPG book (minus stats and systems). We'll see where the story development ideas we have already worked on this year takes us.

However,


I bolded the key part, according to Ezreal's lore he's a champion not by choice, but because its just a price to pay for the power he gets from his necklace.
This is the kind of stuff you get from lore nerds :P
As many of you guys will learn over the coming years following the League of Legends, I am a continuity nightmare. Added bonus: I wrote the original Ezreal bio as well. Yay for arguing with myself!~

I think Ezreal can both be "forced" into the champion gig and try to make a difference by doing it. I will, however, tweak the story to reflect that as well. Thank you for pointing it out to me!

Agreed! I'll talk with Pendragon about this idea.

I think graphic stories are definitely within the realm of possibility.
