Icathia City Map

A great and terrible battle was fought against the Void before the walls of ancient Icathia. In the aftermath, the lands all around the damned city became deserted wastes, and its very existence was struck from the maps of Shurima. It was hoped, perhaps foolishly, that the horrors unleashed there would eventually be forgotten.

Trivia

  • Icathia may be based off a lost Arabian city named Iram of the pillars:
    • which has been mentioned in the Quran, and later on became a significant subject in H. P. Lovecraft fictional works.
      • As such, many void related elements in LoL's lore appears to draw inspiration from Lovecraft. Malzahar finding Icathia parallels with Lovecraftian character Abdul Al'hazred finding Iram.
    • The name Icathia resembles:
      • Pre-Greek Ithaca, from Phoenician Utica, lit. "old town > colony", from root ʕ-t-q "age"[1].
      • Lovecraft's fictional planet Yuggoth, from Arabic Yaghuth, from root ɣ-w-θ "help"[2] (> Hebrew יְעוּשׁ Yeʕuš)
  • Currently, Icathian Capital's geographical location has only appeared on the Runeterra's Biome map. It is subject to change when it eventually appears on the Universe Runeterra map.
