Pop Quiz: Mascots

Saturdays in the US during the fall and winter tend to center around college football, along with each team’s ridiculous mascot. So your one-day challenge this week is:

Make a college sports mascot in HeroMachine 3!

It can be for a real school or for one you make up (Hogwarts, anyone?!).

You only get one entry — that’s right, just one! So make it your best. Most of the other rules are the same as for a regular challenge, but instead of a whole week I’ll announce my favorites some time tomorrow. Here’s how to make an entry:

I’ll pick one entry as my personal favorite, which will get to be featured in the side bar to the right for ultimate glory! As a bonus you’re allowed to say you won the Internet for a few days.

Good luck!

    They’re all college team mascots. Same ones for the football team as the basketball team.

    Does it matter? They’re college mascots. The mascot is for the school, not a specific sport.
