Zaunを訪れる者はそれを"Zaun Glay"と呼び、大きな混沌の始まりに見えると話します。

Zaun is a city-state both supported and ruined by unchecked industry, mercantilism, and magic run amok. The pollution from the countless factories and laboratories are constantly spewed into the environment. The urban heart of the city-state is often choked with smog that blocks the morning sun and drains the sky of its pastels. Visitors have called the sky the "Zaun Gray", and describe staring up at it akin to seeing the beginnings of a cosmic disturbance. As polluted as Zaun is above-ground, its subterranean levels are far worse. All of Zaun's runoff waste pooled together in its sewers, mixing together into toxic and mysterious concoctions.


While known to be a notoriously self-centered people to other nations, the denizens collectively take great pride in themselves and their city. To them, their right to do as they please is what makes Zaun the freest city-state on Runeterra. As a result, the streets of Zaun are a constant hive of activity. Shopkeepers with a variety of eccentric items can be found at every corner of the city-state, with the dark and seedy alleys overflowing with proud individuals willing to give their all for a profit. Both espionage and sabotage are considered common practices when doing business with Zaunites.


One example of the denizens' love for freedom of expression is the unlawful synthesizes of "Shimmer", a corrosive techmaturgical waste substance that is popular among Zaun's rebellious youth. When slathered onto the skin the Shimmer stimulates intense emotions in its subject. The Shimmer then creates an assortment of shining colors that corresponds to the emotion the subject is feeling. Though frequent application of the caustic glop can result in progressive degeneration of the skin and muscle tissue, a rumor that Shimmer can grant its wearer unnatural abilities has simply increased its demand.


To cheer for their favorite League champions, Zaunite fans can gather at the Vaskervon Coliseum. There the League of Legends Visiopathic Service displays key battles featuring their city-state representatives, such as the matches between Zaun and their rival Ionia (or "those peaceniks"). Afterwards the fans will gather together for their traditional post-game celebratory feast.

そこではLeague of Legends Visiopathic Serviceが彼らの都市国家の住人の重要な試合、例えばZaunと彼らのライバルであるIonia(「あの平和野郎共」とも呼ばれています)の間の試合を映し出しています。


The city's governing body, the liberal Council of Zaun, are extremely lenient with their restrictions. This has allowed their researchers and inventors the leeway to push the bounds of their experiments at an accelerated rate, for better or worse. Some say the city-state is run more like a corporate business with no restraints rather than a society of law and order. Zaun’s Chief Executive, Chairman Magnus Dunderson, is said to have had a relatively long reign.

この都市の政府機関である、自由主義なCouncil of Zaun(Zaun評議会)は、制限に対してすさまじく甘いです。これが彼らの研究者や発明家の行動の余地を、良くも悪くも、加速する倍率で押し広げているのです。

While Zaun's ambitious scientists do much to advance civilization on Valoran, their research and inventions often push the boundaries of morality on a daily basis.


The nation is particularly famous for its Alchemists, who often alight the city with their magical concoctions.
Their most renowned member is known as singedSinged, the Mad Chemist. He is best known for creating genocidal toxins that potent enough to wipe out an entire village.


The advanced College of Techmaturgy resides in the city, a forefront in the study of hextech devices.
The doctorate students there are usually credited for creating the first intelligent steam automaton, which they called blitzcrankBlitzcrank, the Great Steam Golem.

The advanced College of Techmaturgy(魔法科学大学院)はこの都市に本拠を置き、hextech機器の研究の第一線を担っています。「偉大なる蒸気ゴーレム」blitzcrankBlitzcrankと呼ばれている、世界初の知能を持った蒸気からくり人形を作り出したことが、ここの博士号取得者についてしばしば言及されます。

Through his tremendous knowledge of the human anatomy and its tolerance to pain, drmundoDr.Mundo, the Madman of Zaun, strives to some day create the perfect science-enhanced killer.
As a result, there are few household pets left in the city due to Dr. Mundo's appetite for live experimentation.

その結果として、Dr. Mundoの生体実験の愛好のため、この都市でペットを見ることはまるでありません。

Seeking to understand magic and its mysteries, the infamous Dr. Xavier Rath conducted a risky experiment that would allow non-magical individuals the power to control magic.
With a great deal of luck the experiment was a success for one participant, granting twistedfateTwisted Fate, the Card Master, the ability to teleport.

魔法とその謎を理解せんと、悪名高きDr. Xavier Rathは、魔法を使えない者に魔法を制御する力を与えることの出来る危険な実験を行っています。
非常に幸運なことに、「カードマスター」twistedfateTwisted Fateについては実験が成功し、彼はテレポートの能力を授かりました。

twitchTwitch, the Plague Rat, has publicly stated that his goal is to gather enough of the materials needed to recreate the strange process by which he gained his sentience.
Were he to succeed, it would mean a bold and brazen step forward in the evolution of life on Runeterra.


Through the joint efforts of the Noxian Bleak Academy and Zaunite Professor Stanwick Pididly, the deceased soldier Urgot, the Headman's Pride, was resurrected.
urgotUrgot existence represented the first and only successful combination between necromancy and techmaturgy.

Noxian Bleak Academy(Noxus黒魔術学園)と、Zaun人であるProfessor Stanwick Pididly(Stanwick Pididly博士)の共同研究により、すでに没した兵士である、「処刑人の誇り」urgotUrgotが蘇生されました。


The city shares a friendly relationship with the city-state of Noxus, where the Noxian High Command would often summon Zaunite champions to fight in the League on their nation's behalf. In addition, Noxus assists Dr. Mundo, the Madman of Zaun, in his ambition to create the perfect science-enhanced killer. They have provided the doctor a laboratory within their city and have given him free reign to pursue his life's work in his spare time. Mercenaries from the city were also recruited by Noxus during their invasion of Ionia, the two most heinous of them being Singed, the Mad Chemist, and warwickWarwick, the Blood Hunter. The brand of mass death and destruction these two madmen unleashed remains a festering scar on Ionian history. When the necromantic reanimation of Urgot, the Headman's Pride, proved problematic for Noxus due to his lifetime of injuries, a prevailing scholar of Zaun named Professor Stanwick Pididly provided the solution by forging a new body for the headman.

この都市は都市国家Noxusと友好関係にあり、NoxusのHigh Command(高等司令官)はその国家の代弁者として、ZaunのチャンピオンをLeagueで戦わせるためによく召喚します。それに加え、Noxusは「Zaunの狂人」Dr. Mundoの完璧な改造殺人鬼を作ろうとする野望を補助しています。博士のために、彼らはその都市の中の研究所を提供し、彼の空き時間においても彼がその生涯を掛けた研究をする自由な裁量を与えています。またNoxusがIoniaに侵攻した時は、この都市出身の傭兵達も彼らに雇われました。その中でも最も極悪な二人として、「狂った化学者」Singedと「血の狩人」warwickWarwickがいます。この二人の引き起こした大量殺戮と破壊の刻印は、Ioniaの歴史に膿んだ傷として残っています。その生涯にわたる傷のため、「処刑人の誇り」Urgotを死霊術的に生き返らせようとする試みがNoxusの手に余った時には、Professor Stanwick Pididly(Stanwick Pididly博士)という有力な学者がこの首切人のために新しい体を作り出すという解決法を提供しました。


As the two leading city-states in the development of hextech, Zaun and Piltover have a deep competitive rivalry, both vying to be the ones directing the future of techmaturgy on Runeterra. League matches between the two nations have a tendency to begin with their champions exchanging contemptuous banter and moody glares.




At the base of the Ironspine Mountains, along the main trade route between Zaun and Noxus, there lies two smaller villages: Askay and Meland. For generations the people of those villages had been embroiled in a bloody feud. The lawlessness of the region had complicated the development of trade agreements between the two city-states, limiting their interaction to wartime pacts serviced by mercenary contracts and alchemical weapons. However, after some Noxian intervention, both Askay and Meland have put aside their differences and declared their allegiance to Noxus. With the conflict resolved, Zaun and Noxus were now free to pursue more thriving peacetime trade relations.

飛行の祭典(The Festival of Flight)

Tensions between Piltover and Zaun renewed as the 16th Festival of Flight race drew near, marking the beginning of the annual Techmaturgical Conference. The city of Zaun had been named victor of the symbolic event for the last four years running, though they showed a great deal of trepidation towards the upcoming match after Piltover publicly unveiled their new state-of-the-art zeppelin.
While it's difficult to classify any dirigible as small, the appropriately named “Tailwind” aircraft was a record-breaking length of 27 meters. Not only was it the first zeppelin to meet such small size constraints, but it also pioneered the utilization of Piltoverian Chrono-Technology. The new prototype “Chrono-propeller” engine, which received tremendous design contributions from fellow League Champion zileanZilean, the Chronokeeper, was rumored to manipulate time itself to reach speeds that would otherwise be impossible under Valoran’s constantly changing atmospheric conditions. The zeppelin would be piloted in the race by jannaJanna, the Storm's Fury, who was once one of Zaun’s most promising mage talents before defecting from the city-state several years ago.

今年の飛行船レースはZaunの敗北(Zaun Loses the Annual Zeppelin Race)

Janna’s record-breaking zeppelin “Tailwind” defeated the Zaunite flagship “Lead Zeppelin” at the annual Techmaturgical Conference in Piltover. Zaun’s “Lead Zeppelin” had maintained a strong lead from the race’s start in Piltover. The Zaunite flagship, a powerhouse of black metal and Zaunite techmaturgy, had claimed victory at the Conference for the past four years. As the two zeppelins crossed the Bluewind Bay, however, Tailwind’s chrono-propeller engine allowed the craft to navigate through the bay's storms utterly unfettered, securing Piltover’s victory. After Tailwind sailed into Piltover hours before Zaun’s Lead Zeppelin, Zaunite representatives immediately contested the victory, claiming that the chrono-propeller gave Piltover an unfair advantage. Conference officials, however, overruled their protest.
