  • Skins bios are now on the PBE:
    • Fright Night Annie
Awful Orphan Annie comes home from school each day
A lonely little lady with whom no one will play
Now all her family's fled (or dead or gone away)
She can depend on Mr. Tibbers to make her new friends stay!
    • Fright Night Urgot
Unctuous Uncle Urgot has no nose to smell
No feet or toes to stink, but he's still feeling swell
'Cause visitors arrive and ring the household bell
With new parts not so rotten for him, and tummy snacks as well!
    • Fright Night Trundle
Teenage nightmare Trundle leaves everything distressed
But he won't lift a finger cleaning up his mess
Howling, growling, scowling, his chores he won't address,
For he has a team (or two) of Scareball players to impress!
    • Fright Night Nautilus
Strange and ghoulish screaming woke Nautilus into being
He made his way outside to find them most displeasing
These lousy, no good neighbors, always there sightseeing!
"What kind of butler would I be if I don't send them fleeing?"
    • Fright Night Draven
Draven's vivid violence gives everyone a fright
Hide 'n' seek is higher stakes these days at night
"There's no escape for you," he cackles with delight
But say his name three times with praise, and he might forget the fight!
    • Fright Night Renata Glasc
Tender loving care and spoons of sugar spice
And all the other things that make a mommy nice
It choked her throat and lungs and showed her virtue's vice
Some chosen children love the dark, that's Mother Glasc's advice!
  • Skin Universe descriptions added and updated:
    • Pool Party ==> Sunkissed Summer
    • Institute of War
      • Though the rigid laws, empires, and political turmoil that lead to the Rune War have since faded into antiquity, the tales of legendary battles fought on the Fields of Justice are kept alive by the remnants of the Magelords and Protectorate. The Marauders and Wardens continue their ancestors' legacy of war and animosity, despite how removed they are from those initial conflicts.
    • Program
      • An advanced security algorithm created by the PROJECT Corporation, the Program quietly evolved sentience before altering its original directive. Infecting machines across The City, it has determined that the ultimate threat to humanity's safety... is humanity itself.
    • Soccer Cup
      • Forget the battlefield, the boardroom, or even the playground: the most important conflicts of today are settled on the pitch. There is no act as satisfying as watching your favorite player slip through the other team, line up their shot, deliver that fateful kick, and release the sweetest word in existence: "GOOOOOAAAAALLLLL!"
    • Luchador
      • From the top rope comes the greatest show in sports entertainment! Watch as El Tigre, El Macho, El León, and El Rayo trade bumps and high-flying spots inside AND outside the squared circle. Just remember, nobody does it better than the Wrestling Federation of Valoran.
    • Marauder
      • A horde of nomadic warriors with a taste for brutality, the Marauders are all that remain of Magelord warrior culture, their ancient traditions abandoned in favor of anarchic shows of force. No dispute is settled until blood is spilled, even within their own ranks. They lost sight of what led their ancestors to war in the first place and what ultimately led to their victory.
    • Warden
      • The Protectorate was an order dedicated to enforcing a rigid, unforgiving system of laws, in an attempt to slow the seemingly inevitable rise of the Magelords. Though the order itself was disbanded long ago, Wardens now don their armor as they lie in wait for the opportunity to strike against the descendants of their ancient enemy.
    • Eclipse 
      • Long ago, an order of monastic knights slew the vile gods of the old world, using esoteric powers granted by the moon and sun. Now the world has grown dark and violent, as those selfsame deities prepare their return... challenged only by the light of the eclipse.
    • Wonders of the World
      • Individuals hailing from the far-flung universe of \"Earth,\" where giant statues come to life and everyone is wearing a fun hat. It's a lot like Runeterra, if you think about it.
    • Day Job
      • It's a living!
    • High Society
      • The only thing more impressive than their wealth is their tax avoidance skills.
    • Dunkmaster
      • There are two types of people in this world: those that dunk, and those who get dunked. If you don't know which one you are, then watch out! 'Cuz you're about to GET DUNKED!
    • Mad Scientists
      • The job requirements are pretty simple: we're looking for at least five years of experience in applied sciences, your last peer-reviewed paper, and two references. Oh, and an evil laugh. Actually, put that at the top of the list.
    • Rift Hospital
      • Take a seat. The doctor will be right with you.
    • Cops And Robbers
      • Nobody puts in the work like the Piltover Police Department. Who else can lock up the most sugar-laden donuts inside their merciless stomachs, rack up the highest of overtimes, and ignore even the most menial of paperwork? The criminals may be taking advantage of it, but even they wish they had the same work ethic.
    • Crystal Rose
      • Romance and joy are in the air at the yearly Crystal Rose Festival, where adversaries meet on peaceful, neutral ground to share a night of dancing, merriment, and making wishes for the future. Everyone is expected to leave their weapons at the door as a promise for a better tomorrow.
    • Withered Rose
      • The Crystal Rose Festival welcomes all who believe in its dream of a peaceful tomorrow, though many have grown disenchanted with the whole affair. Those who make up the Withered Rose wish to see it come to an end. But no one is immune to the festival's charm; perhaps they too will be swept away by the evening's beauty and have a change of heart.
    • Urf the Manatee
      • In loving memory of Urf, a gentle sea cow warrior who now practices with his spatula in the shallow marshes of the great beyond. Good night, sweet prince.
    • Surprise Party
      • Who doesn't like a surprise party? The guest list is done, everybody's bought their presents, and the food's going to be great. We even got a clown! This'll be one to remember. Just don't tell Amumu.
    • Fright Night
      • Bounding across the land on gargantuan frog legs, the Toadstool Boarding House attracts lodgers of the most frightful variety. Regardless of where it settles, there is always a monster in need of a place to stay, and Mother Glasc is always there to welcome them into the family with open arms. And an endless labyrinth of rooms ensures that none are ever turned away.
