Guardians of the Sand is a series of alternate future/universe skins in League of Legends. Set in an alternate Shurima, all of the champions are tomb raiders, ancient tomb guardians, and evil spirits of the desert.

Lore

The Guardians of the Sands stand watch
Deep in the sands lies an arcane temple forsaken by a ruined kingdom. Deep in that temple lies an imposing tomb burnished with mystic runes and emerald scarabs. Deep in that tomb lies an ancient being of treacherous power.
