Hello there!

Welcome to Runeterra, in Words and Numbers, a newsletter about Legends of Runeterra, Riot's CCG (based on their League of Legends MOBA).

Hi there! =)

We are Herko Kerghans, Leer, solitaryplace, bA1ance, Conansson and MonteXristo; if you’re reading this, you’ve probably seen one of our posts on the LoR subreddit, LoR Competitive subreddit, one of our articles for Mastering Runeterra, or perhaps we’ve chatted on Discord.

We like data, poetry and good stories in equal measure, so we try to combine them all as much as possible.

Subscribing to the RIWAN newsletter lets you receive our writings directly in your inbox. It’s free, just like this website: no ads, no paywalls.

Here you can read our published articles, and if you feel like chatting, hop on the RIWAN Discord channel — that’s where we write the poems, articles and interviews that you’ll find in this website.

And if you happen to like what we do, here’s how you can support us — if you can, and if you feel like it, no strings attached; RIWAN is entirely free:

Glad you found your way here, and hope you stay around! =)
