Riot and Orbit Books have announced a partnership to provide the “first novel” in League of Legends’ rising fictional universe. Ruination is being authored by Riot Video games principal author, Anthony Reynolds, and is about for launch this September.
Ruination focuses on the champion Kalista, the Spear of Vengeance, who was added to the roster again in 2014, and the Ruined King Viego, a more recent champion who obtained his personal spinoff RPG final yr. Ruination explores the connection between these two characters, specializing in Kalista, the “navy common to King Viego, as she searches for a legendary realm which will have entry to historical magic—the one solution to remedy the poisoned Queen Isolde.”
On condition that Kalista’s on her second profession because the “Spear of Vengeance,” and that King Viego is now “Ruined King Viego” with a seem like a composite picture of each Satan Could Cry protagonist, I can’t think about Kalista’s quest goes in response to plan.
Ruination looks as if the third leg of a League multimedia story consisting of the Sentinels of Gentle in-game occasion final July and the Ruined King RPG. It’s kind of odd, then, that this prequel is coming a full yr later, however higher late than by no means I suppose.
Ruined King can be not the primary literary adaptation of League. That honor belongs to 2020’s Garen: First Shield, which was a shorter novella and ebook-only as well. Ruination’s story of tragedy and woe additionally looks as if it will likely be a bit extra fascinating than an episode from the lifetime of Garen, the May of Demacia: League of Legend’s most vanilla character.
