Ardent League of Legends fans were treated to a brand-new novel earlier this month that is set in their game’s universe — and may have important implications for the secretive MMORPG that Riot Games is building.
The novel Ruination released on September 6th and is written by Anthony Reynolds. This is significant because, as Riot MMO lead Greg Street pointed out on Twitter, Reynolds is also heading up the narrative for the upcoming game. Taking that statement into account, one might infer that the book includes elements and creatures that will be incorporated into the MMORPG.
However, we are still waiting for more official announcements that hopefully will be forthcoming. On September 15th, Street said, “So speculate away, but remember it is all just speculation. When we have announcements to make I assure you that you will not miss them. Though even those may shift and evolve over time, live games being what they are.”
Re: Ruination novel
1. You should read it!
2. Ant Reynolds is leading narrative for the MMO
3. One of the things great about this world is its breadth. So while there are grim and tragic stories (spoiler: this is one), other stories are heroic, happy, even silly
