Hero Contest

Ok, starting my own contest, with me as a judge.  Asking also for other volunteers to judge.  Need at least two.  Here are the categories.

HOMM V Hero (Pt 1) - For the first contest it will be Heroes that would fit in the current towns that are present in HOMM V (Including HoF and ToTE).  Scores will be for Originality, Background, Hero Special, and Fit (how they fit into the current towns).  The Deadline will be set as soon as I have the two 'vict...I mean volunteers to help me judge.

HOMM Hero (Pt 1) - This one will be for Homm heroes of HoMM 1-4 (and all expansions).  Again fitting in the towns that are already part of the games.  (Fan made towns will be a later contest).  

HoMM V Hero (Pt 2) - Any town for V, HoF, or ToTE..even your own just made up town.  The heroes of those towns only however. Fit score would be not used

HoMM Hero (Pt 2) - As above, but HoMM 1-4. Fit Scoring will be disabled.

Fantasy Hero - No Forge, Mechanical, Cybernetic (ect) and who would fit in a fantasy setting OTHER then the HoMM universe.  Originality, Background, Traits, Quirks, and abilities will be judged.


Should people still be participating after this, more contests will be added.

Well, I prefer one submission for each person participating.  However, multiple entries will be accepted.  Only the best's for that person's score will be shown.  IE, you can submit one for each town if you'd like, but only your best hero's score will be shown.  If we get few people entering that will change, but hoping to get lots of entries.

Submit as many as you like, 1 for each town, a dozen for each town..but for now only the top submissions from each player score will be shown.

Cyborgs don't fit eh?

Take a look at this

Really sorry, just had to throw that one in  Do you mean individual heroes or hero classes?  It's not clear.

Not what I said.  For the Fantasy Heros there would be no Forge, Mechanical, or Cybernectic.  And also would fit in a setting other then the Homm Universe.  By all means in the 2nd part of the HoMM contests you can include forge, mech, ect.

Well, here is how it goes.  You make an individual hero, that fits in an individual hero class.  For the first part, you have to use classes that already exsist.  For the second parts you can use unique ones.

Sorry.  I misunderstood - so Fantasy Heroes is a seperate contest, I thought it was a rule.

Yes, each listed is a seperate contest.  The first contest will be HoMM V (and hof, tote) heroes with classes that already exsist in the game (IE barbarian, Wizard, Warlock, ect).  Also, this is to the mods..should we make another thread for the submissions?  Might help keep the clutter down, but I will leave that for the MoDs to decide.

Either will be accepted.  I personally won't be giving bonus points for graphics, but whoever the other judges are might.  I still need two other judges .  Also, coming soon.  A physical prize will be handed out to the winner of this contest.  A small trophy, with an engraving.  Other prizes might be given for the other contests.

Iraff



Background Story:
Iraff is a known Wizard. He is the son of Zehir and the grandson of the legendary Cyrus. Iraff is an expert of the Dark Magics, and a skilled charismatic leader. He leads the objection to Zehir's regime.
He was born in an affair of Zehir and a humane woman, that was a merchant that used to come to the Silver Cities. After a long trading journey, where she met Zehir, the woman went back to the griffin kingdom without knowing she's holding a son in her uterus. She came back after she had found out it, but Zehir refused to recognize that he has an ilegal son.
Just before leaving the area, the woman was poisoned, but the preemie came out and managed to survive. Iraff grew with a family from Zehir's academy (that gave him his name), but he grew to be a bit different man than his father. He has always had interest in the Dark Magics, and learned them secretly, since they are considered forbidden in the Silver Cities.
When he was 17 years old, his adoptive parents told him the story; how Zehir didn't want him and how his mother was poisoned. Iraff got full of anger to Zehir, but he knew that he wouldn't have chance if he just charges on him. He gathered some Wizards secretly, all of them object to Zehir as a ruler, and they're planning how to eliminate Zehir. Iraff leads them.

Statistics:
Attack: 0
Defense: 0
Spell Power: 2
Knowledge: 3

Speciality:
Iraff charisma helps him to gather creatures to his side. Every 4 levels Iraff gains, the amount of creatures in every stack will increase by 7%. Every time that happens, the increasement grows by 1%.

Basic Dark Magic - Allows hero to learn Dark Magic spells of the third circle and makes Dark Magic more effective overall.


Basic Leadership - Increases moral of all creatures in hero's army by 1.

I completely changed my entry. I changed the speciality, the skills, the spell he starts with and the story (only a bit of it). I think it's much more innovative now. After all, it's not very common to find Wizard with Dark Magic and Leadership. It fits the story; he is the leader of the objection to Zehir's regime, and he should be charismatic.
