Hail, Champions! Guardians of the Ancient has been out for a half week now, and if there's one thing everyone conclusively agrees on, it's that Chip is awesome. Speaking of: do you happen to read the flavor text on your cards? If not, you may have missed out on this neat running bit on the new Targon cards titled "Adventures with Chip". Fear not, though -- we've got the full collected story below!

"Oop yep dat's just da ground shakin' and not papa doin' nothin' with his hands NOPE OKAY onwards annn' UPWARDS!"
That's all we have for "Adventures with Chip" for now -- we can only hope it's because Riot ran out of Targon cards for this expansion and not because he perished to some heartless TLC player's Avalanche. (You guys all know about the unwritten rule that if you killed an opposing Chip, you lost the match, right?)
Do you read your cards' flavor text? If so, what's been your favorite so far? Share with us below!
Am I the only one finding the artificially cute characters annoying? I mean it is annoying enough that poros, poundermonkeys are a thing but now Riot has to diversify this kind of content further?
Yeah you can say it doesn't hurt anyone... but I don't mind any of these creatures dieng to the Reckoning
... and now get this fricking poro off my leg already!
Yeah, the flavor text on these ones is a lot of fun. I always look through the flavor text and full art on day one, but of course I read them out of order because I went through everything by mana cost.
Chip is great. Solid card, too.
Chip is the best champion from the latest expansion! (he even got defeat and victory quotes!)
Really? I know that Cithria, Lady of Clouds have victory and defeat quotes but I never heard chip say anything.
sorry I misled you, he doesn't have victory defeat, but idle sounds.
I confused it having those with victory/defeat ones.
It's ok, mistakes happens.
I don't play Runeterra and know virtually nothing about it but I love Chip.
So chip is a tourist guide? Great.
There something similar with Vladimir followers. Their flavor text in one cryptic conversation :
"Edvin! There you are, handsome. I was just thinking of you!"
"Were you? Well I received an invitation."
"Ah, you too? To the Reveler's B--"
"--Reveler's Ball! Yes!"
"Each of us can go, now…"
"Then we must! I shall present my family."
"How am I to tolerate mine?"
"Escort me. I'll make it fun."
"Respectfully, my dear, my father would disown me. ...perhaps we should wear matching dresses."
"Or nothing at all?"
"Starters before dessert, my dear. And you, Kye? Will you attend?"
"Even if I said 'no', you'd drag me along. So... sure."
Now here the fun part. If you take the first letter of their sentences, you will find a hidden message.
Dang, that is an awesome find! Thanks for posting it.
"Or nothing at all?"
Crimson deciple is smooth as heck
Personally, I would have gone with "subtle as a brick" but yeah, that works too.
