Thresh-o-Ween Roundup

Thresh-o-Ween didn’t go exactly how I planned what with the not posting more than four things about Thresh and nothing else either, but… well, if you’re young or something you can just take it as a life lesson about false promises I guess! Yeah, we’ll go with that. In all seriousness though, there will be more Thresh stuff at another date probably, maybe as part of a broader-themed October in the future. For now I wanted to roundup all the Thresh-o-Ween posts before moving onto new stuff, so if you missed anything, here you go:

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.

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!

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!
