"KAISA_EXOSUIT_LOADER.log"

A strange file named "KAISA_EXOSUIT_LOADER.log"  popped up in the files for today's PBE update.  This small file contains the following text containing what seems to be a system log, a mention of Exosuit Weapon Systems, a header reading "FORTUNE", Kai'sa, a bounty on an unnamed individual, and several other mysterious tidbits.

Here's a copy and paste of the document (may look weird on mobile) - full file available [on pastebin] or [imgur].
