Thanks for acknowledging this sub-forum, and more specifically, the LoL lore in general. I feel like it's not done nearly enough. It makes me want to play more and gets me more interested in the newer champions, as well as the older ones, of course. It's nice to see those champs we love most get referenced again after they've been released.
As for Hecarim, I love everything about him animation and lore-wise so far. (Though I wouldn't mind him getting a tiny buff mechanics-wise.)

I think he might be War and Yorick, Death. Even Yorick's skill Omen of War gives a clue about this, it SPEEDS UP yorick while active.

Famine and Pestilence, make it happen
Mordekaiser would be pestilence, read his lore... "Mordekaiser seems mystically attuned to sickness, as if it feeds and comprises part of his chilling essence. He now stalks the slums of Noxus, drawn to the plague-ridden and diseased." Sounds like Plague/Pestilence to me!

I also don't think Yorick is one of them... because his skills reference ALL of the horsemen. He also doesn't have the sudden and mysterious appearance/background. They pretty much explain who he is and what he wants. Yoricks lore also makes no mention of him having a commanding presence or the appearance of a general (like Morde and Hecarim) or any mention of "things to come".

I know you've said that Hecarim wanted to represent the terror from the Shadow Isles, but I'd like to ask why. I understand that he wants to strike fear, but what gave him the drive to do so? Did he wake up one morning (I'm presuming he rests at some point) and just say "It'd be really fun to scare the heck outta some people", or did something kickstart him?

All of the other champions have had some sort of event in their life that's pushed them into this lifestyle - what was Hecarim's? Vayne's was a traumatic experience, Brand's was brutal lifestyle, Trundle's was hope for a cure (I think), but for a creature whose sole purpose seems to be malice appearing out of nowhere, it confused me slightly.

I'm still curious about the Shadow Isles organizational structure. Do they have a government or leader or something? How do they keep everyone from killing each other if they are primarily evil and undead? Do they have cities and live life similar to other locals? I'm just trying to understand what it would be like if you visited the Shadow Isles.

Hardware related question for the graphic artists.

I saw in a picture a Riot employee drawing Hecarim on an upright tablet screen. Can you guys tell me what kind of tablets you use for this sort of professional work? I've been looking for a decent tablet pc for drawing for a while, and haven't found one that's ideal. Hopefully that's not classified information. (I probably can't afford it, but that's something to save up for.)

I think hes the horseman of war, like how yorick is death and morde is pestilence and possibly eve being famine. Am i on the ball with this and thinking that these guys can possibly be horsemen of something bigger coming from the Isles?

Since Hecarim arrived at Valoran, he was obviously trying to give a warning to Valoran, and the Mord bio stated him as a general of some army, this made me conclude that the Shadow Isles are preparing for war, and it looks like that Hecarim also want Valoran to be scared, but as stated before it would be a stupid tatic if Shadow Isles was invading Valoran, this make me think that Hecarim WANTS Valoran to get ready for the war, and the shadow Isle sended a lot of important persons maybe to help Valoran?

This makes me wonder, who is the enemy? it could be a different faction on the Shadow Isles, or they are expecting a powerfull outside invasor like the Voidborns?

Kind of off topic, but it may be a Cintiq tablet from the way you're describing it. Enjoy mortgaging your house to afford one.

What weapon is Hecarim (Classic/Blood Knight) using?

Is it a glaive? (Or fauchard, lance, halberd?)

Can we have Hecarim be the drummer for Pentakill?
