I have no idea what this is referencing but I too now want to learn about sand trolls.

That'd be the sand trolls mentioned in one of Ezreal's field notes on the Runeterra map. He says:


Did you know sand-trolls are a thing? I, for one, did not know sand-trolls were a thing. Turns out—sand-trolls, totally a thing.

I recognize this name. Are you the Rioter who would always pop up on the boards whenever anyone mentioned maps?

That's exactly who I am, and I helped on the maps in the RUINATION novel too :D

Nice, good to see you're still doing it. Sometimes I miss those little corners of the boards most people didn't go to. There were some nice little places.

I lurk on the Lore of Runeterra discord every so often, but I also miss the Boards sometimes.
