On June 13 of 3 years ago, Riot Games released the most “horror” Skin of League of Legends.
These are the New Dungeon Skins group including: Black Scourge Singed, Iron Inquisitor Kayle and Cursed Revenant Nocturne.
Friday the 13th of 3 years ago will make players feel clearly, it is these two events that bring bad feelings, or “omens” in The West.
In fact, the Dungeon costume, including Black Scourge Singed, Iron Inquisitor Kayle and Cursed Revenant Nocturne is inspired by the context of the European Middle Ages (with Gothic style), a period that was judged to be “Degeneration in the history of development” because during its existence, the Old Continent (the common name of Europe) had to immerse in superstition and oppression of divine thought. accompanied by poverty and epidemics.
First, let’s go to two Skin Black Scourge Singed and Cursed Revenant Nocturne. This pair of skins is based on a true Medieval event in Europe about a disaster called Black Death.
This is a pandemic that occurred in Asia and Europe in the 14th century, culminating in Europe between 1348 and 1350. Black death is considered one of the deadliest pandemics in human history. It is estimated that the epidemic killed 30 to 60% of Europe’s population and reduced the global population from about 450 million to 350 to 375 million in 1400.
The cause of the disease is the outbreak of a plague-causing bacterium that spreads to humans. Although the pandemic occurred in the 14th century, but the outbreak of this pandemic came from the century … 13, when European merchant ships brought this bacterium from Central Asia to Europe.
Referring to the name of the Black Death, we can easily identify the main theme of the Cursed Revenant Nocturne Costume, in which a ghost is covered with dark clouds around and will come to depriving the souls of those who are asleep due to illness.
As he lay on his bed, the first phantom appeared, a beaked doctor with syringe poised to poison him in the night.
As he lay on his sickbed, the second phantom appeared, a monstrous shadow with claws stretched to drag him to the grave.
As he lay on his deathbed, the third phantom appeared, a blood-stained angel with sword raised to deliver justice on his wretched soul.
Besides, Black Scourge Singed is also an inspired product based on this disaster. During the period of the Black Death pandemic, besides corpses piled up all the way, the image of physicians seeking to hold on to the lives of the remaining people is the most visible image on the European streets.
A special feature is that these physicians often put on a bizarre suit with a crow-shaped mask on the face. And this physician’s outfit is exactly the same as the shaping of the Black Scourge Singed costume. In fact, these costumes have the role of detoxifying the air with the composition of impregnated straw and activated carbon inserted, however, the images of the crow beak doctors are when handed down to The next generation accidentally becomes horror and is a symbol of disaster and death.
Another remarkable event is the costume of Iron Inquisitor Kayle – which marks the event that King Philip IV ordered the killing of Temple Knights (Famous Knights in the Crusades)
The reason is … owed to the Knight Association an amount that is too large and unaffordable. The Knight Templars of the Temple had to receive a sudden disaster that struck them when they were judged as “evil cult” and “superstitious” and were cremated simultaneously.
In the end, if you didn’t know, the Black Death pandemic in the next hundred years left an indelible obsession in the generations of Europeans, and they once believed that the pandemic This was due to God’s punishment for the sin that King Philip IV had inflicted with the Temple Knights. And the most tragic event of humanity at that time when most Templar Knights were executed, led to the punishment of God with Europeans, taking place on Friday 13, 1305. .
