Chapter 4 : A Bang and A Flash
Nothing brought Ziggs back from the hunger grumps more than fried food and something fizzy to wash it down. It gave him back his stability. He sat there in a warehouse he often went to when he needed to disappear.
The warehouse was located in the port side of town. It over looked the harbor ships from other cities came and went. The sky was still a white gray making the water look like a dark olive color. The docked ships in the harbor were bobbing up and down by the angry ocean.
Human welder known as Parker ran the warehouse, rusted by years of being in the ocean's mist. He dwarfed Ziggs considerably being a full 183 centimeters tall. Ziggs reached 91 centimeters. Tall for a yordle, but till quite short.
Parker was welding frames for a small anglers' boat.
"What's bothering you there Ziggs?" Parker asked thrrough his blacken beard.
"Nothin," Ziggs fibbed
"Aye, you wouldn't be here if that wer

Ch 5: Dream of a Vagabond
Ziggs found himself in a grassy meadow somewhere far from Piltover. It was warm, like a midsummer’s night, unlike the cold ending of winter Piltover was in now. The stars shrouded the navy sky, unhindered by unnatural light, as was the firefly’s that tried to imitate them in the grass.
Ziggs felt no pain; he had quickly forgotten the trouble he had been in, in favor of identifying where he was now. He peeked above the grass and found the silhouette of Ezreal standing in front of a massive skyscraper of a tree. Ezreal’s gauntlet, a relic of the past and the source of his magic, was glowing effortlessly.
This to Ziggs, meant the area was full of mana. The great ancient tree that towered before the two and was as tall as Piltover’s central tower if not taller. Its trunk was just as massive as it was tall, the bark look strong as steal, and the leaves were a bioluminescent

Chapter 3: Humdinger of a Problem.
The early blue hour arrived once again to Piltover. It bathed the city in a dark blue hue, lulling it out of its night. There was no promise of the sun; the sky was overcast adding a more solid cobalt hue on the city. Light but still not light enough for the star rods to go dormant.
Even at this early hour, citizens still walked the streets, going to work or going home. One little yordle had not slept that night. Too many giant thoughts ran rampant in his little head. This was not a problem for his brain could fit quit a lot. His problem was one of his thoughts started to weigh heavy on him. He sat at his writing desk pondering, thinking, wondering what it all meant.
Why would essence react like it did last night?
What did it mean for the essence in areas where magic was used so often? Was it always just gathering there? What would the bubble over the Rift look like? What wo

A few hours later Ziggs opened his eyes.
He had somehow rolled out of bed while he slept. It was still dark out and the sun had not even touched the horizon yet. The yordle tried to lift himself up but his body was a little sore from sleeping on hard wood.
Ziggs was wide-awake and he had always found it hard to go back to sleep after waking up. He staggered around in the dark trying to find his writing desk. He found it and turned on the star rod lamp siting on the left side of his desk. Ziggs sat yawning; he looked at the analog desk clock.
3:45am its hands read.
"Oh sleep, who needs sleep? Sleep is for the weak." Ziggs said to himself.
Ziggs grabbed his backpack and took out Halley's star charts.
"I don't know what they think I can see," he groaned.
He looked over the charts comparing the three. The way the sky looked kind of reminded Ziggs of how dynamite swells before it explodes. Why would essence only disperse in a bubble
