Rift Quest

By Jared Rosen

Rift Quest is a series of alternate future/universe skins in League of Legends. Set in a more typical fantasy table-top role-playing setting of Runeterra, all of the champions are fantasy characters usually seen in any table-top game.

Lore

Danger lurks in the land of Runeterra! Powerful monsters, dastardly sorcerers, and mythical creatures roam unchecked! Gather your friends and create your own adventure for 3-5 players, vanquishing evil with each roll of the die. Do you have what it takes to save the world, and become a legend of RIFTQUEST?

Playable Characters
  • Bard - Bard BardBardCircle Bard Bard
    Though playing a famously unpopular Riftquest character class, Bard Bard has turned the ancient art of song into a reality-altering weapon of death. Unfortunately his turns take forever, since he has no concept of linear time and speaks in those weird “bwong” sounds.
  • Knight - Braum BraumLionheartCircle Braum Lionheart
    The strongest, bravest knight in all the land, people love Braum Lionheart and his daring tales of adventure! He's definitely not a stickler for 7th-edition Riftquest rules, and there are certainly not snax stains on his character sheet. That would be unbecoming of such a gallant warrior.
  • Warrior - Garen RuggedCircle Rugged Garen
    Also known as “Handsome Garen,” this wandering warrior and extremely original NPC was created by Braum for his Riftquest game. Garen eventually adopted the character as his own, liking the fantasy of himself, but rugged.
  • Cleric - Gragas GragasCaskbreakerCircle Gragas Caskbreaker
    Gragas Caskbreaker is described in legend as both a pious, sun-worshipping cleric and a despicable drunk, depending on who tells the tale. He's not too familiar with Riftquest, but he does like fighting dragons and passing out in the middle of his combat actions.
  • Paladin - Jayce JayceBrighthammerCircle Jayce Brighthammer
    A noble paladin who has inexplicably mastered science and engineering, Jayce Brighthammer is a stout ally no foul creature can best! Unless that foul creature is a loophole in the rulebook, since Jayce likes to get any advantage over the Rift Master he can.
  • Necromancer - Karthus KarthusLightsbaneCircle Karthus Lightsbane
    Dark sorcerer, master of forbidden magic, aspiring lich—all could describe Karthus Lightsbane, a high level spellcaster with shadowy motivations. The rest of the party is convinced he'll eventually betray them, since nothing in the Riftquest rules says he can't.
  • Dark Paladin - Mordekaiser LordCircle Lord Mordekaiser
    Some of Mordekaiser's party complain that the Dark Paladin class is horribly overpowered and should be banned, despite its official inclusion in the latest Riftquest expansion. The rest of them are still waiting to discover the Dark Paladin's secret, redeeming, tragic backstory—but all they've been getting is a lot of murder instead.
  • Soldiers - Nunu DemolisherCircle Demolisher Nunu & Willump
    Serving as soldiers of fortune in pitched battles across the land, Demolisher Nunu & Willump are metal as ferro-bonded steel, and ready to introduce a flute-mace to your face.
  • Beast Rider - Sejuani SejuaniDawnchaserCircle Sejuani Dawnchaser
    Riding her dire lion into the thick of combat, Sejuani Dawnchaser is an intimidating foe for all but the greatest Riftquest threats. Sadly not the most careful roleplayer, she's on her fourth dire lion this campaign.
  • Barbarian - Sion BarbarianCircle Barbarian Sion
    Avoiding every social cue his roleplaying group throws his way, Sion has repeatedly rolled barbarians only to die immediately after rejoining the table. At this point he's spent more time working on character sheets than actually playing Rift Quest, and it shows: his newest barbarian's backstory reads, “Is a barbarian.”
  • Wizard - Ryze RyzeWhitebeardCircle Ryze Whitebeard
    Ryze likes to take time out of his rune hunting to play games of Riftquest as a tome-wielding, scroll protecting wizard also named Ryze. The difference, he will often point out, is that his own beard is black—Ryze Whitebeard's beard is white, plus he has hat.
  • Archer - Varus VarusSwiftboltCircle Varus Swiftbolt
    Two archers cursed by an ancient, evil monster, Varus is roleplaying one archer cursed by an ancient, evil monster. It's not much of a departure for him, but Varus is way better at hunting Noxians than playing tabletop games.
  • Dark Wizard - Veigar VeigarGreybeardCircle Veigar Greybeard
    A suspiciously helpful wizard the party meets early in their adventure, Veigar Greybeard holds a dastardly secret—he's the true villain of Riftquest! Of course, this is obvious to anyone who played the starter campaign, but you still shouldn't spoil it for newcomers.

I want to be an archer who was cursed by an ancient evil monster thing!
Varus OriginalCircle
That’s...but you can’t….Braum, help me out here.

Let the puny purple man have his bows. You can be a traveling cleric who raises his hands to the sky and treats the sun with respect.

Can I get drunk?

Varus VarusSwiftboltCircle
...Uh,what just happened there?
Ryze RyzeWhitebeardCircle
Braum, I’m starting to think you made this game up too.

I’m… I’m coming for you…. you big stupid... dragon! *passes out*

Attack of the Demon Poros

Rift Quest party 01

BY POPSTAR URF[2]

In the back of a dimly lit tavern, a 20-sided die soars across a wooden table. As the die lands, four figures lean in to examine the results of the roll...

Sejuani SejuaniDawnchaserCircle
Ah, a bad roll! The path is blocked and a horde of demon poros attacks our party. Can we survive this onslaught of hellish beasts or will we succumb to their furious might?
Jayce OriginalCircle
Not a problem. I drop an Acceleration Gate and blast ‘em with a Hyper Charge. Our future will be bright!
Sejuani OriginalCircle
Come on, man -- try to stay in character. We’ve talked about this already.
Bard BardBardCircle
*Incomprehensible chime*
Sejuani SejuaniDawnchaserCircle
What did it just say?
Karthus KarthusLightsbaneCircle
It wishes to know if that last part should be included in the song it is composing about our adventures.
Bard BardBardCircle
*Incomprehensible chime*
Karthus KarthusLightsbaneCircle
It also wishes to tell you that demon poros are too scary, and could we change to candy poros instead?
Sejuani SejuaniDawnchaserCircle
Uh okay, I guess... Bard Bard, raise your quill and bear witness! Let us commence battle with the savage *sigh* candy poros.
Jayce JayceBrighthammerCircle
I know how to handle these creatures!
Sejuani SejuaniDawnchaserCircle
No. Please don’t--
Jayce OriginalCircle
I drop an Acceleration Gate and blast ‘em with a Hyper Charge. Face the future!
Bard BardBardCircle
*Writes something down*
Sejuani SejuaniDawnchaserCircle
Do not put any of this in the song!
Bard BardBardCircle
*Confused chime*
Karthus OriginalCircle
It says that--
Sejuani OriginalCircle
I DON’T CARE WHAT IT SAYS! *Rolls die* Rocks fall; everyone dies. I’m going home.
Bard OriginalCircle
*Sad chime*
