While I was working for the past few days on building some tables and benches with my pops.
I came up with 2 new champion designs. One is a yordle called Brawl, the tank commander and the other one is an inventor from another world called Hank, the Iron Engineer.
Let's start with Hank. Hank is a hybrid caster, he heavily relies on his skill, deals both magic and physical damage, is very mobile but not very durable. He came from another planet via escape pod. On his planet he was convicted of a crime that he didn't do. He then escaped in space but was chased down by authorities. He then activated ship's auto destruction system and escaped via escape pod.
He landed near Noxus and was captured by Noxian forces that were led by Katarina. She was interested in obtaining the possible technology he knew about and possessed. That would place Noxus as powerhouse in Runethera. Soon after his capture and slow returning to Noxus Katarina's forces were ambushed by Demacian forces led by Garen and Lux. Garen and Lux were on a secret mission of gaining intel about new Noxus battalions that were conscripted recently.
Battle ensued and eventually Demacians defeated Noxus forces, Katarina was forced to take Hank hostage. As Katarina was about to state her demands they were suddenly teleported to the institute of war. As they were members of League of Legends summoners observed them and saw Hank. They knew his technology could severely destabilize the entire Runethera.
Hank's technology and knowledge were far superior to anyone's living in Runethera, but even stranger thing was that he knew nothing about magic. It appeared that magic on his planet never existed or that it was weak compared to Runethera's. Summoners decided to provide him with sanctuary within Institute of War. He then asked about his captor and Demacians, he was interested in their abilities that they used in battle. He learned about League Of Legends and he wanted to join. Summoners agreed and promised to Hank that they would seek the way to return him home.
He salvaged his escape pod, his engineer suit and all of his devices to make his battle suit that he would use in battle. With the help of Heimerdinger, who knew the ways Techmaturgy and Hextechnology.
And thus Hank, The Iron Engineer entered the League. But only one question remained. Does people on his home planet know that he is still alive? If they do, will they come for him?
When I designed Hank I had in mind a champion that can play on top, middle and bottom lane. As an adaptive champion. He can be a very good AD carry thanks to his Mana Bolts and Core Amplifier, he can be built as off tank and act as an assassin or he can focus on ability power and devastate his enemies with mana bolts and Radiation burst.
And now a word about Brawl, The Tank Commander. Brawl is ranged off tank. He is a yordle that wanted to join the army. Heimerdinger built him a tank and that's how he started to serve in Bandle city army.</p>
Any suggestion is very helpful.
Full lore, icons and other details coming in several days.
