Oh I didn't know that! I really like Varus, I'll have to look into it.

I like that with Varus, he's still being fucked with by his hosts. I have a feeling that they're going to pull a "power of love" shtick with them, because both of Varus hosts are very gay and very in love. It might either A) teach Varus a little more empathy/remind him that he was once human too or B) fuel their eventual eviction of Varus. Varus is always getting picked on by Aatrox anyway, maybe it wouldn't be a bad idea to choose the humans this time around lol.

I'm surprised so few people know about this game, poor advertising on riot's part probably.

And good guess! A) is exactly what happened :) There are also some more darkin characters there. Some are from the existing lore (they were in twilight of the gods I think), and some seem to be completely new. Definitely recommend checking it out!

I think it's also a completely different kind of gaming than LoL. People that play League are there for the gameplay, not necessarily the lore. So it's probably attracting people that either don't play League or the rare folk that are actually invested in the lore. I just haven't had the time to squeeze in another game to suck emotional investment into so I've not opened it.

And ah! That makes me happy. Varus always felt... Really lonely? Like you've got rampaging anger god Aatrox, snarky murder nightmare Rhaast... and Varus. Who doesn't seem to talk about anything but that he's got a limited amount of time left and he'll make his enemies pay for their crimes against him (whatever that may be). He seemed a little weaker than his brethren (and so, not very wanted by them) and also the most human still, so I had hoped they would play into that. I'm glad they have!
