League of Legends: Shadows of Valoran - Recruiting!
« on: March 12, 2013, 04:30:58 AM »
I have several plot ideas for group games that revolve around the established Lore in League of Legends. I'm curious to see who's interested in what and perhaps we can get a good game going

Plot Idea 1- The Void vs the Shadow Isles: This would be set in a darker time in Valoran. The ongoing wars between Demacia and Noxus began to distract the League officials from the true growing problem, Malzahar and his Cult of the Void, the terrors of the void serve as his generals. Void beast now cover the land, attacking villages of any region they see. The Crystal Scar has become overrun, and various strongholds in both Demacia and Noxus have fallen. The forces of Freljord  governed by King Tryndemere and Queen Ashe have yet to give any active involvement, keeping to their relatively safe region for now.  Piltover and Zaun are under constant siege , leaving the Demacian and Noxian forces spread thin. What hope is there left for Valoran? It may surprisingly enough come from the Shadow Isles, Where Karthus, in the name of balance, has pleaded to Mordekaiser to act, as they have the last sizable force to change the wind of this new twisted war.

Plot idea 2- The Bioforge Pact vs. the Steel Legion: Based off the thematic skins in game, as the lore says Zaun and Noxus made a pact that was giving Noxian forces biological modifications to give a new cutting edge in the battlefield, lead by Darius, the Hand of Noxus. Demacia's responce to this was thanks to the innovation of Jayce, the defender of tomorrow, making new levels of gear and equipment for demacian forces to combat the newly enhanced foe, forging the Steel Legion, Lead by Garen and Luxanna Crownguard.

Plot Idea 3: A more normal spin on things that focuses on the life and battles outside Summoners Rift.


plot idea 4: taken directly from Quinn's latest journal
http://na.leagueoflegends.com/board/showthread.php?t=3296866
 more info
Quote
When asked what Tryndamere is up to and if this Freljord conflict will boil down to one of the leaders allying with Demcia or Noxus, kitae replied:
"Tryn is still with Ashe.

I can see the parallels, but the Freljord tribal leaders are more concerned with internal conflict than aligning themselves with external powers. Neither Ashe nor Sejuani would welcome aid from Demacia or Noxus in their conflict."

In response to this someone remarked that Ashe, when compared to Sejuani or Lissandra, seems to be the the weakest of the three camps, kitae responded:
"Ashe is still the strongest player in the conflict. She has Tryndamere, Anivia and Nunu on her side, a large army, and the most hospitable land. More details will be revealed..."


Regarding Volibear's lore update, kitae explained a bit of the rational between switching Volibear's loyalty from Ashe to Sejuani.
"Part of the concept here is:
Ashe is progressive, unifying, peace seeking.
Sejuani is traditional, uncompromising, warlike.
We thought long and hard before shifting Volibear's alliance but he seemed better suited to Sejuani. His values of nobility, loyalty, and tradition align well with Sejuani. We kept his core motivation the same - motivated by a vision he has allied with a human leader to protect his tribe. Now Sejuani has a powerful ally which makes her a more legitimate threat to Ashe"

In another thread, someone shared their dismay that Anivia has been changed from an otherworldly being to a Freljord character and accused Riot of having some sort of vendetta against the few champions from different dimensions. kitae replied:
"There is no secret agenda to make all the champions from other worlds be from Runeterra.
Otherworldly origins are an import pant part of our storytelling. A good example is Kayle and Morgana. Part of what makes this duo cool is not only are they a light-angel and dark-angel sisters, they come from an entire world that mirrors their conflict.
In the case of Anivia, she was an ancient protector who after being summoned chose to take up the role of guardian of Freljord. While her other worldly origin was interesting, we saw an opportunity to create deeper ties between her and ancient Freljord. As the immortal protector of Freljord, we now can include her in those stories, and she becomes a good ancient counterpart to the ancient evil that is Lissandra.

Anivia remains what she has always been - an ancient elemental protector, who is protecting the Freljord. We've just made those lore ties deeper.

TLDR; Champions from other worlds are ok and will remain - in the case of Anivia we made her a stronger character and unlocked additional storytelling opportunities by making her a protector of ancient Freljord."


To clear up Lissandra's back story a bit, kitae compared her to Superman. saying:
"Lissandra = Clark Kent
Ice Witch = Superman (but evil) (and a chick)"
Although kitae did admit
"The bio actually is not very clear on this so my bad!"

If things are still a little confusion, kitae replied with "Yes this is pretty accurate" to the following FAN summary of Lissandra's lore
Lissandra is her actual name from before she became part of the Watchers
Once she gained her power and started stealing the identities of the Frostguard leaders she was given the name "The Ice Witch" due to folk lore and stories, of course no one knew she was the Ice Witch
Now that it's come time for set her plans in motion for world domination, rather than taking the identity of another successor, she is using her own identity since no one knows who she really is and merely taking on her original human appearance whilst masquerading for the public"

This of course lead to even more questions about the heirs, blood line, and more. kitae, however, said all that can't reveal that just yet.
"These are great questions, but I can't answer most of them right now without spoiling some upcoming lore.
Lissandra has lead the frostguard tribe for many hundreds of years. They were once noble, but that was a long time ago.
More information on the blood lines of the three sisters will be coming soon so I am not going to give any information out on that today.

How the Ice Witch chooses her "heir" and assumes her new identity is purposefully being kept a mystery for now. Please feel free to speculate."
Kitae did expand a little bit, saying:
"She named her successor Lissandra so when she took her identity she could reclaim her own name."

Obviously there could be a large cast of characters in any of these plots. Once enough interest is gathered we can zero in on the plot of choice and establish an opening cast! Feel freeto share and discuss thoughts here too!

I have a lot of love for LoL I play in tournaments on EU, and I just started an account on NA we need to play a game or to let me know what server your on. I am interested in the game. I have a very strong love for Eliese, Ahri, and Annie. If I could play one of them though I'm thinking how they word fit into the first few plots >>

Elise works very strongly into the first plot. She gave her human life to the Vilemaw, letting her be transformed into the Spider Queen. If the forces of the Shadow Isles act, she is obliged to join them.
Ahri and Annie would be x factors, as they dont have any distinct side. Glad to see you're interested!

Quick question: is it just characters that already exist in the game that we're allowed to use, or are we allowed to make OCs? If we did the first plot, I would probably just play Thresh, because Thresh is delightful, but I'd probably want to come up with a new character for the others.

OCs will be accepted, but especially if we go with the first plot, there are some central characters that need to be solidly in the game. i.e. Mordekaiser and Malzahar.
OC's will be fun to see because of such a large race pool to choose from: Humans, elves, yordles, ursine, voidling. magical creature, etc

Depending on what plot we go with, and depending on if I do a female character or not, my current inclination is to do a female hemomancer who's an apprentice to Vlad. I assume there's no problem with connecting OCs to preexisting characters?

not at all, at least in this RP. like you can say you were a machine built by Viktor, am upcoming rival inventor of Jayce in Piltover, etc. Often i find though the loose the connection is, the better. Across all plots, an apprentice of Vlad would make you Noxian, more than likely. I have a hard time seeing Vlad take on an apprentice as he has such a superiority complex, however, this student could possibly have show exceptional potential.
Zac will be a viable playing option, once we know more about his kit. Some skins also, depending on the plot, i may let exist as their own character. I.e. Ez vs pulsefire ez, Varus vs Arclight Varus, in otherwords, skins that tie into the lore still, but have an almost separate character all of their own.

Well, the way I see it, Vlad's superiority complex about his craft would make him glad to take on an apprentice to show off further, though he probably wouldn't ever do the ritual with them until he gets very old. If nothing else, it could just be a weaker hemomancer from a separate line, maybe one that has very different ideals to Vlad.

I just like the idea of writing a character with that ability, since I've been playing a lot of Vlad top and mid lately.

also i wonder If anyone is going to take on Karma..her visual rework is sexy, and her new kit is just as sexy.
the "leaders" are as follows: Karma - Ionia, Ashe - Freljord, Volibear - Cheiftan of the Ursine, Jarvan IV - Prince of Demacia, Swain - The Noxian commander, Garen - Captain of the Dauntless Vanguard, Darius - Noxian captain, Caitlyn - Piltovers most prominent figure outside of, Jayce, Viktor - Zaun. Mordekaiser - Shadow Isles.
And for anyone noting, Nocturne counts as a  shadow isle entity.and would be part of their forces in the plot 1 idea.

Well, whichever we do, I am still leaning toward the character concept I already mentioned. I'm thinking of designing them to be sort of like a support, for gameplay comparison. Like instead of just draining life from they enemy with Transfuse, they could transfer their own health to allies to heal them. That and things like making their blood pump faster to invigorate them and increase their strength and speed, and so on. They would be weaker than Vlad, and thus afraid of him, since he would kill them if he knew they existed and absorb the power of their line.

otuside side the [purely political] marriage between the tribes of Ashe and Trynd, Sejuanni and her tribe of the Winters Claw Fight for unification of Freljord under her. The current mystery is of Lissandra, and more over, what are Volibear and the Ursine doing about these recent events. Who is this "ice witch"? [im pretty confinced its Lissanrda, especially since her reccomended items were leaked onto PTB a couple weeks ago and shes an AP mage].
Id say that all freljord and demacian champs/factions are fair game. The only clear faction that would have outright hostility with the others is Sejuanni's camp.

We could just do the "the Void emerges" plot on a wider scale than just how the Shadow Isles gets involved. Honestly, while these very specific what-if plots are neat, they're not really conducive to the creation of original characters. At least not ones that come from a ton of different backgrounds and races.

I agree completely.  Plot 1 does allow some leeway, though.  Anyone from Shadow Isles, Zaun, and Piltover could be actively involved, and the League could order a champion from Demacia, Noxus or Freljord.  The only consideration would be not to have more than one or two champs from the warring nations, as they are already spread thin. 

Other regions, like Ionia, are fair game as well, and any prisoner or champion of the league itself (like Ryze) could easily be involved.

The Sejuani rework looks interesting; I love the current Sejuani and this could make her even better. The Trundle revamp looks neat as well.

For the Roleplay, if we haven't decided on a theme/setting, what if we made it based around 3-4 "Summoners" who were suddenly taken to Summoner's rift, either in the bodies of the champions they were playing, or as completely new champions. The RP would be the interactions that took place as/after this occurred?

Either way, if I do RP, I would love to play one of the current champions in the game, as opposed to making my own.

new Volibear Lore
Quote
The unforgiving northern reaches of the Freljord are home to the Ursine, a fierce and warlike race that has endured the barren tundra for thousands of years.Their leader is a furious adversary who commands the force of lightning to strike fear within his foes: Volibear. Both a warrior and a mystic, Volibear seeks to defend the ancient ways and the warrior spirit of his tribe.

Though history recorded their once legendary feats in battle, the Ursine now lived in tranquil seclusion. The warriors were headed by a triumvirate of leaders who maintained a long-lived isolation,avoiding the petty affairs and conflicts of others. As shaman to the three,Volibear was a respected sage known for his insight. It was an era of unprecedented peace,but Volibear felt dread stirring within him.Prosperity was turning the tribe soft and weak,and many had long forgotten the sacred art of war.In time,Volibear felt the fire of their souls would be extinguished. When he revealed his misgivings to the triumvirate,they refused to listen and warned him to know his place.

Seeking wisdom, Volibear undertook a perilous climb to the peak of the Ursine's sacred mountain, a place forever shrouded in a thundering maelstrom. The eye of the storm was said to bestow portents, and legend held that the tempest would mark the next great chieftain of the tribe. As Volibear ascended the peak,he was struck by an unnatural bolt of lightning. When the shaman awoke, he was possessed by a horrific vision of the Freljord utterly consumed by darkness. Volibear saw an unprepared and complacent Ursine force slaughtered by terrible creatures of ice. In an instant,he knew his race would perish if they did not prepare for war.

Volibear rushed down the mountainside to recount what he had seen,but found the path blocked by three Ursine - the triumvirate. Knowing he would end the lasting peace,they refused to heed Volibear's warning and demanded his silence, by his word - or his death. Resolute and adamant, Volibear swore that the Ursine's very survival depended on his message,and launched into ferocious combat against the three. A terrible clash ensued, and just as Volibear succumbed to his opponents, he called upon the power of the maelstrom.Unleashing raw lightning,he struck the trio down with a thunderous blow.Stunned and astonished, the triumvirate beheld the sign of Ursine leadership: the force of the sacred storm.

Recognizing his foretold ascendance,the triumvirate appointed Volibear as the Ursine's new leader.His influence was swift and decisive: he roused his tribe from complacency,revived their battle-hardened traditions,and allied with Sejuani,the warrior who would fight with them against the coming evil.With time, the tribe grew lean and fierce,becoming known again as fearsome warriors of legend.Volibear and the Ursine now stand ready for the dark day that looms on the icy horizon.

''The Ursine cannot know peace without war.''

Everyone's entitled to spend their money the way they see fit. I just picked up Kog'maw for IP since I had a lot saved up, but now I have a bunch of new rune pages to fill out, so I might have to pick up champs with RP if I feel I really need them (which I usually don't unless they're on sale).

Quote
When asked what Tryndamere is up to and if this Freljord conflict will boil down to one of the leaders allying with Demcia or Noxus, kitae replied:
"Tryn is still with Ashe.

I can see the parallels, but the Freljord tribal leaders are more concerned with internal conflict than aligning themselves with external powers. Neither Ashe nor Sejuani would welcome aid from Demacia or Noxus in their conflict."

In response to this someone remarked that Ashe, when compared to Sejuani or Lissandra, seems to be the the weakest of the three camps, kitae responded:
"Ashe is still the strongest player in the conflict. She has Tryndamere, Anivia and Nunu on her side, a large army, and the most hospitable land. More details will be revealed..."


Regarding Volibear's lore update, kitae explained a bit of the rational between switching Volibear's loyalty from Ashe to Sejuani.
"Part of the concept here is:
Ashe is progressive, unifying, peace seeking.
Sejuani is traditional, uncompromising, warlike.
We thought long and hard before shifting Volibear's alliance but he seemed better suited to Sejuani. His values of nobility, loyalty, and tradition align well with Sejuani. We kept his core motivation the same - motivated by a vision he has allied with a human leader to protect his tribe. Now Sejuani has a powerful ally which makes her a more legitimate threat to Ashe"

In another thread, someone shared their dismay that Anivia has been changed from an otherworldly being to a Freljord character and accused Riot of having some sort of vendetta against the few champions from different dimensions. kitae replied:
"There is no secret agenda to make all the champions from other worlds be from Runeterra.
Otherworldly origins are an import pant part of our storytelling. A good example is Kayle and Morgana. Part of what makes this duo cool is not only are they a light-angel and dark-angel sisters, they come from an entire world that mirrors their conflict.
In the case of Anivia, she was an ancient protector who after being summoned chose to take up the role of guardian of Freljord. While her other worldly origin was interesting, we saw an opportunity to create deeper ties between her and ancient Freljord. As the immortal protector of Freljord, we now can include her in those stories, and she becomes a good ancient counterpart to the ancient evil that is Lissandra.

Anivia remains what she has always been - an ancient elemental protector, who is protecting the Freljord. We've just made those lore ties deeper.

TLDR; Champions from other worlds are ok and will remain - in the case of Anivia we made her a stronger character and unlocked additional storytelling opportunities by making her a protector of ancient Freljord."


To clear up Lissandra's back story a bit, kitae compared her to Superman. saying:
"Lissandra = Clark Kent
Ice Witch = Superman (but evil) (and a chick)"
Although kitae did admit
"The bio actually is not very clear on this so my bad!"

If things are still a little confusion, kitae replied with "Yes this is pretty accurate" to the following FAN summary of Lissandra's lore
Lissandra is her actual name from before she became part of the Watchers
Once she gained her power and started stealing the identities of the Frostguard leaders she was given the name "The Ice Witch" due to folk lore and stories, of course no one knew she was the Ice Witch
Now that it's come time for set her plans in motion for world domination, rather than taking the identity of another successor, she is using her own identity since no one knows who she really is and merely taking on her original human appearance whilst masquerading for the public"

This of course lead to even more questions about the heirs, blood line, and more. kitae, however, said all that can't reveal that just yet.
"These are great questions, but I can't answer most of them right now without spoiling some upcoming lore.
Lissandra has lead the frostguard tribe for many hundreds of years. They were once noble, but that was a long time ago.
More information on the blood lines of the three sisters will be coming soon so I am not going to give any information out on that today.

How the Ice Witch chooses her "heir" and assumes her new identity is purposefully being kept a mystery for now. Please feel free to speculate."
Kitae did expand a little bit, saying:
"She named her successor Lissandra so when she took her identity she could reclaim her own name."

you may use cannons if you wish.
depending on where your characters would be coming from would be the shape of the initial actions. the Ice witch appears to be ready to take action and progress towards her steady plot of world domination. Aside form the still hidden notions of the ice witch, war could erupt in Freljord at any moment, it takes only the slightest misdirection to tip the scale. the last thing anyone wants is the tribes of Freljord attacking each other to shreds. most characters would likely hear a very heavy rumor of looming war.

Oh man. Funniest AI game ever. EVER.

We get into the champion select and I pick Ahri and locked her in, since I wanted to test out a build order. A half minute or so the hermidinger calls mid and locks in. Since this is an AI game lane priority doesn't mean anything, so I go mid with him. At which point he throws the most massive hissy fit in the history of hissy fits. Starts cussing, calling us slaves, and bitching and moaning. Eventually stops playing so he can watch LCS, while the rest of us are laughing our butts off while playing.

The best part is when we finish and I get three teamwork tickets from the rest of the non-crazy players in the game.

If you were Garen or someone from Demacia, I could be Lux.  We could be part of a group from Demacia going to help end the threat of the Ice Witch, or just as a general scouting party that gets sucked into the action.

Lux works well for either.  If I play the OC, he will have trained at the same place she did.  Of course, if you have a thing for incest RP, Garen might work better.  I'm flexible.

in terms of combat, Lux and Garen are in seperate military divisions
Garen is Captain of the Dauntless Vanguard, Lux is part of the royal elite, along side Shyvanna and Quinn, lead by Prince Jarvan of course.
if you're a  scouting party, it probably has Quinn in it. If its all OC's though, i guess that could be different.

general plot directions for your characters, based on region
Freljord: you are in the heart of the brewing potential war. Do you align yourself with Ashe, the powerful leader who pusehs for the ideals of peace, progress and harmony through all of Freljord? or do you ride with the winters claw and their leader Sejuani who stands on tradition and power as the right way to unify Freljord. Are you a part of the princess Lissandra's frostguard tribe? do you hear the stories of the ice witch?

Demacia: Following Quinns report, Prince Jarvan IV has called in his Elite, comprised of himself, Quinn, Shyvanna, and Luxanna. For now Jarvans Elite moved along side Garen, captain Dauntless Vanguard a as they keep a vigilant watch on the borders. You are part of the elite or the dauntless vanguard, both very high military positions in Demacia

Noxus:Commander Swain is suspicious of this sudden movement by Demacia. He deploys a small squad to lurk and investigate the issue

this is a work in progress will add more later**

My funniest AI game was then I decided to play jungle Ezreal, and our Urgot was like "Please don't. Omg troll." ... One double kill in the top lane later, he's asking me to 'share kills' or some shit like that. It's hilarious playing bots with people who never actually PvP.

I went Urgot jungle once, it works surprisingly well (just needs a strong leash and is mana hungry, so not viable) but they were upset the entire beginner bot game. Always fun to mess around in a bot game with the noobs, occasionally that is. Sometimes it gets annoying.

My last game, the enemy Galio never connected, so the jungle poppy went mid against my Orianna. I did good for the laning phase, but Poppy kept leaving and eventually snow balled. At the end of the game she could one shot kill me and kept focusing me, as I did my best to stay alive. Eventually it got to a point where she was chasing me through our jungle, while the rest of my team back door and won the game.

So horray for being the sacrifice!

I  might be NPCing quite a few of the canon's. I may pull in my own OC, but it may not be visible at the very start of the game.
now for teh /other/ part of the plot: Vayne has recruited Fiora, along with a few rag-tag people from Demacia, and Piltover alike. Vi has slipped out of Caitlyn's watch to join them. They are going to meet up with Kassadin and his secretive group who seem to have information for a possibly bigger threat..

The Yordles: if anyone wants to play them, im open for suggestion as to what they might be doing.

So, I have been thinking, better to not do characters, only do OC's. We can maybe have a secondary, or use someone who is a main character as a side, but I think we should be able to use a primary on the side occasionally, but otherwise focus on an OC.

I will not be doing Lux.

Instead I will be doing the Daughter of the man Fiora's Father tried to poison. (I needed a logical reason for this:) For that reason, she hates Fiora with an undying passion.  She will also be a Romance with kckolbe's character? (working this out via pm)
