The chimes of his footsteps are echoes of change." - Ryze Ryze

Bard Bard travels through realms beyond the imagination of mortal beings. Some of Valoran's greatest scholars have spent their lives trying to understand the mysteries he embodies. This enigmatic spirit has been given many names throughout the history of Valoran, but titles such as Cosmic Vagabond and Great Caretaker only capture a fleeting aspect of his true purpose. When the unknowable structure of the universe is threatened, Bard steers all existence away from utter annihilation.

Bard Mountain

The Wonder Above
The stars tell their own stories. Some speak of past events. Some speak of... other things.
Bard promo 2

An elderly Ionian storyteller (the child being carried by a relative by the end of 'Bard: Mountain') teaches three teens the importance of stories as well as the meaning behind several constellations.

Stories are not just history. They can be so much more. They nourish your mind and, if told well, can even fill your belly. Some tales are warnings, reaching across time. Others uplift our souls from the yoke of everyday burdens. We laugh at fools, cheer heroes, and curse villains until the fire burns down to embers.

Our first rule: the facts may be important, but they aren't as vital as the telling, of speaking to who we are and why we live. Details might change and fade, but truth lives with us for all time.

Stories are everywhere. We build them from what we see. Even the sky above whispers to us.

Bard lore 1

Look toward the Frozen Watcher.

Summer's grip loosens; winter's herald dominates the night skies.

A horde of these strange creatures once enslaved the tribes of the Freljord. They smothered Valoran under glaciers and cast a shadow upon all of Runeterra.

The Frozen Watcher signals the end of the harvest. It reminds us we must all be prepared to endure Lissandra winter's lash.

Bard lore 2

A cloud of smoldering destruction hangs in the night sky. This is the Fall of Shurima.

The Ancients groped blindy in the darkness, threatening to unravel the very fabric of creation in their Xerath hubris. Nasus Noble Renekton Shurimans who Ascended found a loose thread in the universe's tapestry, and pulled upon it. The vulgarity of their Azir ambition consumed thousands of innocent lives and ended a golden age.

Such was the fate of mighty Shurima and of men who would become gods.

Bard lore 3

The powers that govern life and Kindred death are not to be trifled with.

The Shattered Crown is a Blade of the Ruined King item.png king's reward for defying the shadows' embrace. I believe we are meant to ponder mortality through poetry and verse, not Mordekaiser enslave it to our will.

Bard lore 4

There was a time, not long ago, when this constellation was absent from the night sky.

Some call it the Mountain Shrines or the Great Caretaker. Those of us from the floating villages know of an older name, a name that speaks of a universal truth. The name we took for our kind: Bard Bard.
