Incredibly interesting actually.Not surprised to see an answer like that. Not a think about you is boring. I actually end up talking to my friends of experiences summoning you all the time.
Although I wish I was better using you in the jungle. Any tips on ganking?

Also, after talking to Ahri I only just realized how naive I've been. Expecting the champions that I summon to be around forever.
If you ever do fix the problems with Noxus do you have any idea what you'll do after that? Just settle down and live the quite life? Or stay and fight in the League? Both seem like something you would do. So I'd have to ask.

Hrm hrm hrm...what to ask...Ah, there we go. I think I am going to be a little light hearted:

If you were on a deserted island for an undisclosed amount of years, and you had spend all this time with one person, bring one personal item with you and have access to one food source what would they be?

Anything practical (including your sword) is already provided on the island, this is meant to be a fun question so don't fret too much over it.

However, I rather enjoy my occupation (which may or may not include summoning sentient beings to engage in magical cockfights). My question, thus, is do you believe I should pursue the course I know is best for the long term or continue to live in the moment? If you were in a similar situation, what would you do?

Signed, Conflicted in Kalamanda
I like to believe that League matches are a bit more honest and worthwhile than cockfights. But I'll leave that idea at that.
As for your choices... This is quite a big choice for you, and it would be wrong for me to tell you what to do with the rest of your life. But since you're asking what I would do in that situation, I can answer that. The truth is, I don't think I could bear to live in the moment. As much as I enjoy my ability to adapt and think on the spot on the battlefield, I always like to have some goal in front of me. It helps me focus my efforts towards it, and it usually works. So in your position, I would ensure my longterm goals would be met.

I wouldn't ask this of most people but you seem like one with at least good judgement
Okay. I don't have any other way to say this. I fought in Ionia because I am a soldier of Noxus. Noxus invaded your country with the intention of taking control. I was willing to help them achieve that. That is what the military does.
Yes, I killed people. Some were soldiers, many were not. My company would make efforts to escort civilians away from the battlefields, but our commands usually included wiping them out.
It was not the type of war I was trained for. It was not what I was expecting. Worst of all, it was the most disgusting and disturbing event of my life. I left, not because of the war itself, but because of the way it was fought.
Know this. If we Noxians were to fight and defeat the Ionians without relying on underhanded and vile sources, I would feel no guilt. The reason I feel guilt is because I feel we failed at our own identity and you suffered more because of it.
There isn't much I can do to aid you directly. So I will show my worth and do my part to prevent a tragedy such as the Ionian Invasion from repeating itself.
Is that enough for you?

(OOC: For what it's worth, as a summoner you're expected to relinquish your city-state and become a neutral party. That's what Riven was referring to, since you called yourself an Ionian Summoner and clearly have a bias towards it.)

When we meet on the battlefield, we'll see who eats whom (or what, for that matter).

To answer your first question, I 'gank' (such a vulgar term) fairly well. Buying boots helps me get into position to use my short-range disruptions, which can help allies set up their skillshots. If you want to go in with a bang, set up my broken wings combo before going in, and then dash and finish it off to knock the enemy around. This is a fast way of keeping an enemy in place without letting them react too quickly.

For your second question, I actually answered this already. I believe the answer is two pages back.

I'm unsure of the question exactly. If you're asking if I've already reached my goal, then no, I haven't. If you want to know what I will do when I've reached it, then the answer lies above. Check a page or two back to find it.

I'll be looking forward to your challenge.

Well, if I'm going to be trapped for a long time, I'd like to have someone I can train with. I think Shyvana would be a great fit for that (and a possible escape if needed). I don't really have any personal items... At least nothing that I'd need or really want to have with me. As for food, I don't think I could last very long without some sort of meat. I'm not picky about what kind.

Dear Riven
I must compliment your abilities as a seductress! I didn't know you had it in you...
But may I suggest that you practice your control over your subjects? They were recently running rampant on my advice column... Oh, I mean, it didn't bother me too much it was actually highly amusing, I'm just suggesting a way to improve your abilities, as a seductress myself.
Love, Ahri

Dear Riven,

What are your thoughts on King Tryndamere. He seems to share much of your ideology, gaining his power through pure strength and a big sword. Additionally, what are your thoughts about how, through pure willpower he is able to survive through anything, and when you meet him in the fields of justice how do you deal with it.

Dear Riven,

I searched for a champion I thought could best answer this question, and I figured it to be your, since nobody else answering questions really seems to have any rivals. Well Kayle does, but she doesn't give very satisfactory or thought out answers. I can kind of see Morgana's point of view on the whole issue of their world.

I digress. Onto my main question: Why do Champions join the League to settle a score? First off why not simply forgive those who have wronged them and let it go? Since that probably won't happen (But I believe it should) what does joining the League give you over simply murdering said champion outside the fields of justice?

Granted, such a thing is an abhorrent idea I am very much against, for all life is precious, one must wonder what drives people to join the League in order to gain revenge, when on the fields of Justice champions simply cannot die. Ashe and Sejuani is a good example. Sejuani can never actually kill Ashe, so why join for vengeance? Why not just forgive and forget and try to make Frejlord a better home for all?

Sincerely,
Krissey

The only reason you've received any info on the Crimson Elite is that it was leaked by a spy. Formerly, it was entirely confidential up until the High Command. The Crimson Elite is the best of the best, and any slip on the info could prove hazardous, especially to Noxus' enemies.

... Thankfully, I don't have to concern myself with that matter anymore.

I wouldn't say we share the same ideology. I'm sure his reasons for wielding his sword are different from mine. He focuses on destruction. I focus on what works best.
That said, he is indeed frightening when he's lost in his bloodlust. My tactics usually involve fighting up until that point, and then keeping my distance from him until he's calmed down. Then I let him feel the pain again (my Wind Slash is a very effective technique for this, since he's already taken a lot of damage).

To start off, I have met both Ashe and Sejuani on the fields, and I think I can understand their viewpoints. They are both doing what they feel is right for their people. Ashe probably feels sorry for Sejuani. She caused a lot of change when she united Freljord, and some people couldn't accept that. I believe Sejuani thinks she can gain enough influence to sway people's opinions. We'll see whether or not the peace holds.

But as for the real question... That's a large one. Take it from me, you can never really understand another person. Everyone has their own goals and dreams and nightmares. For some, the nightmares have more influence on their thoughts than the dreams. Some people's minds are too weak or damaged to overcome it. So when it comes to revenge, the only thing they can think of is "I want justice."
The problem they may encounter with this is that League Champions are protected. The only way they're going to find some solace (and keep themselves away from death or confinement) is if they join the League themselves. It may not be a permanent victory, but sometimes it's enough. Although sometimes it just fuels worse and worse things. It's a morbid cycle.
Personally, I think Graves has settled down a bit about Twisted Fate. But he seems to enjoy the life here, so he stays. Keep in mind that's my personal opinion. I'm not really the best judge of character...
