Semi Random Character Challenge


Recommended Posts

A place to come if you want a random challenge to get your creative juices going.


The rules:

  • The thread should always have at least one "unstated" character image
  • Add to the thread by commenting on the existing characters, or by providing stats (+ optionally name and background) for the last image. If you provide stats, you are also responsible for providing the next image
  • Create an image by going to Hero Forge
    • Go to the species tab and hit the random dice button
    • Go to the clothing tab and hit the random dice button
    • Go to the colour tab and pick body and theme colours
    • (Completely optional) Add some equipment and a pose if you're feeling inspired
    • Take a screen shot and post it here!
  • No guidelines on character generation: Hero Forge covers fantasy, sci fi and modern (although with a fantasy slant) and different images might make wildly different points totals appropriate
  • Don't be shy to reply to your own image if you're inspired
  • Feel free to create alternative stats for previous images! It's not a race. If you're providing duplicate stats for the same image, it's up to you if you want to add a "next" image as well, but let's try and keep at least one inspiration image always available


Let's have two options to start us off: anyone up for the challenge?
