Character Design Contest ♯115- Ranger Danger

Ok, so this week sees the last of our Fantasy RPG classes contests, and we’re focusing on the Ranger class. For those of you unsure about this one, because it is  probably the least defined of all of the classes, the Ranger is a huntsman, usually skilled in ranged weaponry (normally archery, though guns have been known) and setting traps, rather than close quarters combat of Paladins or Rogues. So that’s what I want you guys to make. If you can create some interesting bow firing poses or inventive traps, you’re likely to do well here.

As per usual, no limits on entries this week and the contest will close at midnight Saturday (blog time). Please read the contest rules before entering, have fun and good luck.

Character Design Contest ♯114- On The Rogue Again

For our penultimate Fantasy RPG class, we’re going to be focusing on rogues. For anyone who doesn’t know what that entails, you’re basically looking at the sneaky characters. Thieves, assassins, ninjas are all fair game here, anyone who uses stealth and speed over raw power classifies. However, we’re not looking at people who would be best suited to laying traps or dealing long range damage, that’s for next week, you want to be as up close and personal, preferably without being noticed in the process. Bonus points go to anyone who can get onto the poll without me noticing. ;)

Character Design Contest ♯113- Getting Clerical

So, last week we did a nice and offensive RPG class, so this week lets take a step back and take on more of a support role shall we.  This weeks contest will see you take on the role of the Cleric, the healer of the group and general man of faith. Now, this class isn’t as varied as the Mage or Fighter classes, but basically what you are looking for is a medic that heals using faith in some sort of god, so it doesn’t have to be a Monk or Priest per say, Witch-Doctors and the like also count. It’ll be interesting to see what participation is like on this one.

Character Design Contest ♯112- Be A Pal-adin

So, onto our next Fantasy RPG category contest, this time covering the “tin can” classes. Your task is to create a character that fits into any of the fighter classes. So that’s Barbarians, Knights, Paladins, stuff like that. So make sure your inventory is filled with the strongest armour,  the mightiest swords and the stoutest of shields. Physical strength is the order of the day here, so leave your traps and spells behind and get creating.

Character Design Contest ♯111- A-Mage-ing

I was talking to Vectorman316 the other day and he suggested doing a series of contests themed around fantasy RPG classes, since we haven’t done them before. Pretty neat idea if you ask me, I don’t know how I didn’t think of it before. So that’s what we’re going to do. This weeks class is the Mage, because it is the best class (who doesn’t want magic?). So your quest, should you chose to accept it, is to create the best Wizard, Warlock, Druid, Magi, Sage, Summoner, Necromancer or Magician you can. You must show proficiency in Heromachine wizardry to truly excel in this task, so make sure your mana is full and equip yourself with your most powerful tools, such as a good staff and a spell book containing such enchantments as the Masking Spell, and set forth. You must have completed your mission by the highest moon of the seventh day, to prevent the prize from falling into hands of your enemies.

(Incase you haven’t noticed, I’m having way too much fun with this).

Character Design Contest ♯110- Mech me some Robots

So, this weeks challenge is to create some sort of robot. Not a cyborg or mech-suit that is worn by a human, a mechanical automated machine controlled by an AI or simple program. It can be a utility robot like R2-D2 or a war machine like the Sentinels, humanoid like Optimus Prime or non-humanoid like GLaDOS. Just make sure it’s awesome.

Character Design Contest ♯109- Aquatic

For this weeks challenge, I want you guys to create something with an underwater theme. It can be something that lives underwater, something that was designed to go underwater or just an underwater scene. Hopefully, you have enough scope here for some excellent creations, so lets sea them. Sorry, bad pun.

Character Design Contest ♯108- Be Romantic

So, Valentine’s Day is this Saturday and, whether you have someone to share the day with or not, it’s always nice to celebrate love, so that’s what we’re going to do for this weeks contest. I want y’all to be as romantical as possible with your pictures this week, I won’t be any more restricting than that (other than obviously stay within the site rules, so nothing explicit please).

Character Design Contest ♯107- Vehicles

Ok guys, this week I want you to create some form of powered transport system (i.e. no ridden animals). My only rule is, no space-craft (that’s a contest for another time), but you can do any terrestrial transport you can think of otherwise. Oh, and just to make it a bit more interesting, you know the vehicles section in the companions category? Yeah, you can’t use it, except for minor parts (i.e. wheels). Have fun.

Character Design Contest ♯106- TGT: Fantasy

Ok guys, you should know what to do in a TGT (2 Great Tastes) contest by now. You’re given a compulsory genre (in this case Fantasy) and you have to mix it with another genre (e.g. Sci-Fi, Horror, Western etc.) for your entry. Simple as that.
