The winning entries for all HeroMachine contests.

Character Design Contest ♯116 (Easter Eggs) Poll

Character Design Contest ♯115 (Ranger Danger) Winner

So, we’ve actually got a repeat winner in the fantasy CDC’s now. And it’s surprising to think that before her win a few weeks ago, her last CDC win was in June last year. But anyway, this weeks winner is Candruth for her Shot In the Dark. Congrats Candruth and well done to everyone who entered.

Character Design Contest ♯115 (Ranger Danger) Poll

Character Design Contest ♯114 (Rogues) Winner

I think everyone should be worried about the result of this weeks contest. Not only did our winner once again steamroller the poll, but they also picked up their third win of the year in the process. Now, we did have someone manage three contest wins last year, but they had to wait almost thirty contests between their first and second wins, whereas this person has managed three wins within ten contests, so that bodes ominously for everyone else who wants to enter a contest in the future. Because they’re going to have to hope that they aren’t going up against AMS, whose Rogue Ninja won this weeks poll by a fair margin, as per usual. Congrats AMS, and well done to everyone else who entered.

Honourable Mentions: Ubiquitous Pixel and Cliff

Character Design Contest ♯113 (Clerics) Winner

We didn’t manage to quite get the turn out for this poll as we did last week, but we still managed to accumulate a fair number of votes. And it wasn’t a steamroller victory, though our winner was comfortably in the lead for the whole week. And that winner is Candruth for her Healing Words. Congrats Candruth (it’s been a while hasn’t it?) and well done to all our other entrants.

Character Design Contest ♯112 (Paladins) Winner

This weeks poll got over 250 votes in total, which is a record for a CDC poll (if we exclude CDC97, because that was an anomaly to say the least) and, as you might expect with voting numbers so high, the poll was close. Our winner only won by 9 votes from 2nd, who was a further 11 votes ahead of 3rd, giving us a nice and neat 20 votes covering the top 3. However, I’m sure no-one will be surprised with who the winner is. And that winner is Guy Genesis for his amazing Jaquis Kobar. Congratulations Guy and well done to everyone else who entered, whether they made the poll or not.

Character Design Contest ♯112 (Be A Pal-adin) Poll

Mod Note Please Read:

Now, before anyone votes I would like to make this clear, yes it does say Paladin in the contest title, but this contest is about designing the best character in any of the Fantasy RPG fighter/ warrior class staples, so knights, paladins, barbarians etc. So you don’t have to worry about “is this really a Paladin or not?” just vote for your favourite… if you can choose that is.

Character Design Contest ♯111 (A-Mage-ing) Winner

I have to say, the quality of the entries for this contest was superb (and the same also applies to the current contest, but that’s off topic) and the poll just proves it. It wasn’t a run away contest, it was closer between the top 3 than in some contests  gold and silver medal positions, but the winner still won by a decent margin (13 points I believe). And that winner is Blunt Object for his Tempest. Congrats  Blunt Object and well done to everyone else who entered, as I said, the quality in this contest was amazing.
