Non-English VO:


Lore

Here's Fiddlesticks' in client lore:
"Something has awoken in Runeterra. Something ancient. Something terrible. The ageless horror known as Fiddlesticks stalks the edges of mortal society, drawn to areas thick with paranoia where it feeds upon terrorized victims. Wielding a jagged scythe, the haggard, makeshift creature reaps fear itself, shattering the minds of those unlucky enough to survive in its wake. Beware the sounding of the crow, or the whispering of the shape that appears almost human… Fiddlesticks has returned."
Check out Fiddlesticks' full biography on his Universe page!

A new short story was also released - Voices by Jared Rosen
"Ten great kings took ten great thrones,
Nine crowns adorned nine heads.
One left to scratch upon their mounds,
The crow, alive and dead. 
— old Demacian poem, author unknown

It started when old Hubard, drunk out his mind on stale mead and the dulled memories of some battle he’d probably run from, locked himself in a shack just outside of Goldweald. Davil tried to break the door in, good neighbor as he was, but the miserable fossil had more strength than anyone could have anticipated, bracing his entire body against the entrance as he babbled about heights and spiders and being pecked to death by birds. No one believed the man was being pecked to death by anything but a bottle, so we all went home, assuming, as one does, that with a day to dry out, the ordeal would sort itself. 
Took only one night."

A new featured image was also added on Demonology:
"A fragment of esoteric lore, discovered after the attack on the Noxian fortress at Fae’lor. The author(s) and provenance are unknown."

Updated Skins 

Each of Fiddlesticks' skins have also been updated!

Spectral Fiddlesticks

"A gruesome spectre, rumored to stand eternally watchful over a peculiar book of fables. Brave knights and cruel sorceresses alike have tried in vain to reach the tome, but none have ever returned. Perhaps that lost queendom of old isn't so fictional after all..."

Union Jack Fiddlesticks

"Pip pip. Cheerio."

Bandito Fiddlesticks


Pumpkinhead Fiddlesticks

"Carriage drivers are cautioned to stick to well-traveled highways, especially during the witching season. Strange things can happen on those old, moonlit roads, where no birds sing, and something enormous moves within the fog."

Fiddle Me Timbers

"Yar har, fiddle-dee-dee."

Surprise Party Fiddlesticks

"Everyone told you hiring a clown would be a good idea. "Clowns are great for parties," they said. But now everyone's missing, and the power is out, and something's laughing just down the hall..."

Surprise Party Fiddlesticks has a unique voiceover:


Non-English VO:

Dark Candy Fiddlesticks


"As lights go out across the Winterlands in preparation for Snowdown season, something ancient and terrible rises from the darkest corners of the Poro King's lands. Devoid of thought or purpose, it hunts for holiday revelers as if possessed, cutting down anything that crosses its path."

Risen Fiddlesticks

"Once upon a time in a faraway land, a jealous young emperor invoked profane summoning rites in exchange for power. Yet when the ancient horror Fiddlesticks stepped forth, it did not aid the boy--and in an instant, his empire was utterly destroyed. The fiend was trapped beneath the ruins... until now."
