History

The Bloody Tale

Blood Moon 2017 promo

The Blood Moon

She woke up screaming.

Red. Everything had been so red. And in the center of the bloodbath, the masked warriors had danced, eyes aglow with murderous intent. Good night, their eyes had whispered.

Her companions crowded around her, worried. Behind them, the fire burned low. Above them, thick clouds suffocated the sky.

“What did you see?”

She paused. Did she dare call on those apparitions? “Just.. a bad dream. It was only a dream.”

They returned to their slumber, and she sighed, still shaken. “It was only a dream,” she repeated.

A sudden wind shook the trees around the site. She shivered, closing her eyes and wishing for morning.

As the clouds parted above, red moonlight bloodied the ground.

The Festival of Fire and the Blood Moon

“Ionians from every province gathered beneath the flowered branches of the Great Tree in the Serene Gardens yesterday for the city-state’s annual Festival of Fire. An early summer tradition, this festival was a symbol of Ionian culture, celebrating the cleansing and rebirth of the spirit.” ― Henril Dreving

During the night of the Festival of Fire and Blood Moon, Ionian people were treated to various musical and theatric performances pertaining to Ionian history or legend. The headlining performance featured League Champions ShenSquare Shen, the Eye of Twilight, and AkaliSquare Akali, the Fist of Shadow, who performed The Tale of Reina, a legend in which an ancient Ionian warrior is hunted by an evil spirit. Akali took the part of Reina herself, dressed in formal Ionian red and white battle garb, and Shen played the spirit that plagued her, adorned with a fearsome mask. As the legend goes, Reina fled the spirit for years, yet it always found and tormented her. Finally, Reina donned her own mask to confront the spirit, but when she turned to face it, it never came again, frightened away by her strength.

When the sun rose in the morning and the Tree had become almost fully concealed behind scrolls, an Ionian summoner lit them briefly aflame. As the magic dissipated, the sun shone brilliantly through the branches of the Great Tree. Master Hana, an Ionian adjudicator, stated that this was the festival's greatest lesson: out of any darkness comes the grandest of light.
