The latest happenings on all things HeroMachine.

HM3: Falling To Pieces

I am starting to add the individual parts of Jeff’s Body/Materials set starting with the Crystal Body. No new assets, just pieces of Jeff’s original artwork.


HM3: Deadly Nose Scratcher (Reward for CDC#66: Fashion Show 2)

Here is the clawed gauntlet requested by Mattisagamer for his win of the Character Design Contest #66 (Fashion Show 2).

The forearm piece can be found in GloveRight/Standard. The claw hand can be found in HandRight/Standard.


More Stufffffffffffffffffffff

Yeah, I know – I’ve made myself scarce lately. But don’t worry, I’m still around and working on some stuff nevertheless. And so I give you without further ado the results of this work:


Hope you like it… 😉

HM3: Tip of the Hat (Reward for CDC#63: Gadgets)








Here is a top hat with its steampunk gear counterpart. These were prize items requested by Rapidosian (AKA QuantumCookies) for winning Character Design Contest #63 (Gadgets).

These items can be found in Headgear/Modern.



HM3: Compass Rose

So far this morning you’ve gotten a new site install that’s super zippy AND that lets you log in thanks to Ben. I handed over a new version of HeroMachine 3 that once again allows exporting from Chrome. Which are both cool things but they’re not really new, they just fix things that were more or less broken. It’s like waking up Christmas morning and getting your old bike with a new coat of paint and the horn fixed.

So to complete the trifecta with a brand spanking new present, I’ve added a compass rose to the Insignia-Tech set for use in making maps or for a navigational-themed character. Or flag, tattoo, very odd Companion, whatever your fancy suggests. Enjoy!


HeroMachine – Site Upgrade in Progress

Hey, folks!

We’ve moved to it’s snazzy new server. Most things are up and functional, but we’re still encountering a few bugs, specifically:

  • logging into the forums is problematic
  • some premium content may be unavailable

We’re working overtime to correct these bugs, and we’ll let you know when they’re fixed.

If you’re having any other issues with the site, please comment on this post.

Thanks, and sorry for any inconvenience!

– Ben
