Hi, Community!

It's me again, Scarfee, or, as my main account on EUNE is called, Pizza Shooter. After being busy for few months I come up with an awesome, in my view, idea of a new support champion.

It's gonna be a Yordle champion (OHMYGAWDYORDLE), something Riot really forgot about.


Name: Duff, the Yordle's Chef

Appearance:

- Duff has a typical for yordle appearance (furry, hamster-like, big head and big eyes) but some details need to be cleared.
- He is plump (obviously)
- He wears toque and apron.
- He carries around his trolley with all the equipment needed for cooking (something kinda of mobile kitchen)
- Sometimes after casting ability he can get covered in ketchup, mustard or dough.

[NOTE]If I'd find some picture fitting into this description, I'll post it here, but I'd ask you frankly: I can't draw and this is difficult, so if you could draw something for me, this would be awfully nice! TY!

Lore:
"Duff was very picky eating. Always. It's been a trouble for our family to feed him properly, but he never got skinner. This could never happen, even if he would starve for days!" - Denise, Duff's Mother.

This story of a picky eating little yordle is known everywhere at Duff's home. Some of their neighbours were helping his parents with food to keep Duff healthy and happy. His fame around Bundle City escalated so quickly, that Duff's parents could never understand why there are more and more people coming to their house and gifting them food just to see how fast their son would deal with it.
But after surviving that time when Duff was only a food recycling machine, his parents were awarded.

Understanding, that his main life purpose is food, came to Duff when he just turned thirteen. Others could never understand how could he be amused just by the cooking process. His familys house turned into one big kitchen, where Duff was creating different quite tasty masterpieces out of regular food. Then he became even more famous than before, but now - as Bundle Cities best chef. He was even awarded by Yordle Academy, they've even created new department called "Cooking Technology". It immediately became so much popular, that Academy was forced to build separate building for the needs of the cooking classes. Duff was put in charge of these classes, and he fastly gained lots of students, fans and followers.

The story of how Duff got into the League is perceived by all kinda strange. The only will which guided him to creation of his classes and teaching the "cooking tech", was to feed people, or to teach them so they could feed others. And when he found out, that there are more than hundred hungry champions, who fight for their fate every day and night without any rest, Duff finally understood where he was needed. He left the classes to his best student and follower, took his trolley, with which he started his cooking career in Bundle, said goodbyes to his beloved parents, and went to the League - to feed, feed and feed again!

"Hungry Champions of the League! Your rescue is on it's way!" - Duff, the Yordles' Chef.

Quotes:

Champion Selection:"Are you sure you are not hungry? Really? Ok-ok!"

Taunt:"I think pieces of yours could add some special taste to my new pastry."
"Yuck, I am sure your cooking skills are awful. Look at these fingers..."
"These cookies of yours... Do not impress."


Joke:"It doesn't matter what exactly do I cook, It's always tasty! Well... Ok, usually tasty."
"The main purpose why I never add salt to my dishes is that... Mother of pie, I ovedone it again!"


Movement:"I don't always cook while talking, but when I do *whisper* i think it needs more cinnamon"
"Hungry people await!"
"I am not really much philosophic, but did you ever think that our world could be just a piece of food to someone?"
"Ahh, forgot eggs. Stupy Duff."
"Never underestimate... pies."


Death:"No... More... Cinnamon..."
"But?.. Aren't you?.. Hungry..."
"Stabbed... Like... Steak..."


Special Quotes:

  • If hitting Kog Maw with a patty:
    If in Enemy team:
    Duff: "You're hungry, weren't you?"
    Kog: *Dissatisfied Growl*
    If in the same team:
    Duff: "Here, eat some patties!"
    Kog: "Mmm, Food! *Om-Nom-Nom*"
  • If hitting allied Caitlyn with a patty:
    Duff: "It's dangerous to go without cupcakes. Take this!"
    Caitlyn: "Thanks! New traps incoming!"
    [NOTE] There can be a special effect after this one: Caitlyn's traps will now contain not cupcakes, but patties!
  • If hitting allied Gankplank with a patty:
    Duff: "Tastes better than oranges! Yarr!"
  • Meeting enemy Teemo first time:
    Duff: "Please, keep your shrooms outta my kitchen this time"
  • Meeting enemy/ally Jinx:
    Duff: "Mother of pies! You're skin! How are you still alive?"
    Jinx: "Shut it, hamster."

I pretty much hope you'd like this one. Thumbs up below if you like the idea, and comment, if you've got any pics or ideas about the post! Thank you for reading!

And also sorry for my english, I am not native speaker (as you could already understand). But i surely try to write not too much confusing, so i hope you enjoy this!

[EDIT] Guys PLEASE if you know summoners who draw arts or you are that summoner, I could really use some help here (if you like the idea of course). There was no problem in getting the abilities visualisations from Google (just to schematically illustrate), but there is a problem with the splash. Noone draws hamsters in toques

Holy **** Yes!
This is an awesome support that can be really fun. I love all the spells and they seem reasonable. Might want to make the appearance of Duff a little more unique. But the idea is cool and i can all ready see him running around. He could even have a Bad Chief Skin that has his dough and other spells be black or bad looking. Kind of an opposite to him for a skin.

Thanks man! I am glad you liked this!

About the skin, i think it's a great idea! I am also considering about adding playing tips, special quotes and effects! If you also have any ideas about what can I add to his design - feel free to comment!
