SPOILER: CONTAINS DRAWINGS THAT MIGHT OR MIGHT NOT BE CRAPPY.

If you like this idea, please, leave a bump and an upvote. These threads can't survive alone without you, so do your part. (insert sad, heart-wrenching music)


Relevant song is relevant?

PREFACE

Imagine Thresh (http://media-copper.cursecdn.com/attachments/28/714/thresh_originalskin.jpg), the Chain Warden.

Now imagine Thresh as a fisherman, similar to Angler Jax (http://loldb.gameguyz.com/images/skins_big_skin_fid_path/jax-angler.jpg) or Fisherman Fizz (http://loldb.gameguyz.com/images/skins_big_skin_fid_path/fizz-fisherman.jpg).

His scythe can be replaced by a short fishing rod, his lantern could be replaced by a tackle box.

SKILLS

Q: Cast your line to catch some feeble weaklings like a real fisherman would.
W: Toss your tackle box to save lives and secure souls. When tossed, the tackle box opens to reveal that Thresh (gasps) keeps souls in there, along with his bait!
E: Push and/or pull with your fishing rod. Not much to do here, really.
R: Drop a crab cage to trap those mortal fools. Would be a bonus if crabs are spawned with the cage, and escape once a wall is broken.

Would be awesome if other things are added, such as...
- When recalling, Thresh fishes.
- Change some sound files; for example, the wind-up for his Q would sound like a fishing rod being casted!
- Change some lines to fit the skin, such as: "Me, fishing? Haha, quite likely."
- Add some special particle effects, idk, maybe some water or fishes here and there?

PICS TO MAKE IT HAPPEN

I'm not the greatest artist in the world, but I attached little drawings of what I envisioned to be Angler Thresh.

Concept, #1

679377
Concept, #2 (a little cleaner than #1)

679353
Reel that weakling in!

679364
What, you gotta keep your souls somewhere, right? (bonus points if they are shaped like Teemo)

679351
The more you catch, the better!

679359
Fishing rod and tackle box, connected by chains(?)

Simpler fishing rod and tackle box, connected by a "ghostly" fishing line

FINAL NOTES

Wanna say thanks to my buddy EposNamenlos, got the inspiration from him when I duo'd with him as Thresh & Ashe.
In fact, he's an artist, maybe he can draw a splash for us? STAY TUNED.

Thanks for checking out my idea! Here, take this as a reward (http://www.lolfall.net/upload/images/0_0_1746770465.jpg).

679517"Hey Thresh, Riot announced another skin for me! How great is that?"
679380"Ah, Riot. Torment comes in so many flavors..."

Spread the word, Thresh needs some R&R whilst fishing.
