HM3: Blazing Swaddles (Contest Prize)

The Nate asked for a swaddled baby and I obliged. No questions asked. I just assumed that there was some crazy weaponization of a baby involved. This piece (2 pieces actually, swaddling and baby head) can be found in ItemRight/Miscellaneous. Enjoy this new bundle of joy!

Important Item Creation Question

Fellow Machinists,

So, I’ve been doing some thinking about Item Creation. I currently offer my services to create prizes for the Character Design Contests, which are weekly events. In the past I posted item polls, with selections gathered from user requests and my own whims, to determine what item to work on next. When JR asked me to generate prizes for the contests I originally planned to alternate between prizes and polls from week to week. I had forgotten that the Character Design Contests were weekly though and I abandoned the polls with that realization. Now I am reconsidering the alternating item creation scheme, doing a CDC prize one week and then posting a poll the next week. The downside of this is every other week there would be no prize offered for the contests. The upside would be more people would have a chance to influence what items are added to HeroMachine. Either way there would be one item generated a week.

I’ve made a poll to get a handle on what people think. Please feel free to post any comments if you feel strongly one way or another.

Thanks!

HM3: Indecipherable Rebus or Prizes? (Prizes!)

Here are some prize items for Valyndril (pointing fingers), Gargantua (sea shell), and Anarchangel (scifi helmet). And as a bonus, the first character to be created using the shell item —The Sea Witch. (Also an entry for the Females Only contest that was not completed in time, so my ego demanded that I share this with the unsuspecting Machinist community.) :)

The hand can be found in Hand/Standard. The shell can be found in Insignia/Nature. The helmet can be found in Headgear/Military
