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.
|“||"Ooh! Can I join your game? My character is Jarro Lightfeather. Handsome Rogue-Paladin Elf."|
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 -
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 -
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.
- Rogue-Paladin -
An adventuring elf from the outlying forest kingdoms, Ezreal likes to present himself as a “handsome rogue-paladin” named Jarro Lightfeather. Very few people believe his claims of knighthood, but they serve as a decent enough distraction between his disastrous misadventures.
- Warrior -
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 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 -
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 -
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 -
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 -
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.
- Wizard -
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.
- Beast Rider -
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 -
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.”
- Rogue-Assassin -
The sworn brother of Twitch Shadowfoot, dashing assassin extraordinaire Talon Blackwood is one half of an infamous underworld duo and the only advanced class in the entire party. He's also a brooding dark elf antihero with a tragic backstory, who is fated to one day save the world! Probably.
- Battle Cleric -
A battle cleric who has to simultaneously tank and heal for a pair of bumbling rogues, Taric Luminshield may be the only thing keeping his table from a total party wipe. In-universe he's a devout warrior of the Divine Goddess Targonius, but out of universe he'd rather be in a different campaign.
- Rogue-Thief -
An extremely aggravating presence both in-game and at the table, Twitch Shadowfoot is the adorable Rift Quest counterpart to the actual Twitch, who is insane. Unsurprisingly, the cuddly rat-man rogue spends nearly every turn stealing his companions' equipment, mumbling of a vast conspiracy to overthrow him from his 'toilet kingdom'.
- Archer -
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 -
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.
