Picture Spotlight: Favorite Thresh Fanart

Didn’t manage to update during this here Thresh-o-Ween event as much as I’d have liked, but we can still end October off with something cool, and I still intend to do a few more things at the beginning of November, even if I’m late!

As I’ve already written, he was an awesome character that changed my perception of the support class in video games, but in addition to that, he was a highly requested character archetype by League of Legends fans; an evil support, so it’s no surprised he’s highly loved and there’s a lot of fanart of him! These are my favorites! Artists will be credited.

Character Spotlight: Thresh the Chain Warden

So I kicked off a site event for October and cheesily named it “Thresh-o-Ween”, so who is Thresh? If you play League of Legends, you probably already know: Thresh is a playable character or “champion” in the game, traditionally performing the role of a support character but other times played as a tank or even an offensive tank or major damage dealer. He’s an all-around badass, being a scary ghost dude in a trenchcoat, carring a lantern, sickle and chains, while also being frankly a super tall dude.

Released during the first month of this year, Thresh instantly became on of my favorite champions to play. I mean, how could the guy not appeal to me immensely when I love villains, creepy monsters, and the undead? Even better, his skillset really appealed to me: A chain he can throw out to trap and reel in enemies, a throw-able lantern that shields allies and which they can also grab to get pulled back to him, the ability to do massive damage with just his regular attacks alone, and a bit freaking box made out of damaging walls he can trap enemies in. Suh-weet!

Cling Clang, Go the Chains

We’re kicking off an October event I call Thresh-o-Ween — okay let’s face it this is just a Halloween event like last year, just with a little extra emphasis on my beloved Thresh, with a spooky fanfic I wrote in his honor. Of course it features his theme song, which I’ll talk about more next week. This League of Legends fanfic is basically appropriate for anyone as long as they aren’t easily scared, but there is some talk of blood and soul-draining, so be warned! Most about Thresh and other spooky things in the coming weeks!

Strange Talk Revival

So after an inexplicable delay — no we’re not talking about it — I wanted to post up on here about me reviving my Strange Talk YouTube channel! I did two videos a few weeks ago just before the last Curiosity Shop on Zelda Dungeon, one a silly video I had to do after recently becoming a fan of Attack on Titan (more on that next week), and the other a tribute to my last and latest computers. I tried to make them funny! Check ’em out, and be on the lookout for new videos real soon!

Something is coming…
