Nerdmudgeon reviews “The Avengers”

The latest episode of the Nerdmudgeon podcast featuring yours truly (and, sure, two other guys who really don't need to be named) is up, bringing to a close the original Phase 1 MCU slate. Check out the "Avengers" episode today!

Character Design Challenge #467– RPG Character Classes Challenge – Part6 –Thieves, Rogues and Assassins

For the next few weeks we will be building a team of RPG characters based on the following classes: Warrior/Fighter, Knight/Paladin, Barbarian/Berserker, Monk/Martial Artist, Archer/Ranger, Thief/Rogue/Assassin, Priest/Healer, Mage/Wizard, and finally Summoner/Necromancer/Druid. 

Your CDC challenge this week is to create an original Thief, Rogue or Assassin character. 

The winning entrant will receive a HM3 version of their character rendered by yours truly. 

The characters must be your own design and not based on any character that might be copyrighted in any way. 

Rules for posts, contests, and challenges: 

Original characters only, no copyrighted characters, no characters based on copyrighted characters.No characters based on Official RPG NPC's ( Non-Player Characters ). Please keep all submissions PG13. I have the right to delete any post that I believe crosses this line without warning. Only post characters that have been created solely using Hero Machine, and that you know for certain have never been entered in a contest before. If you aren’t certain, don’t enter it, because I’m not going to go back through all of the contests and check. 

All entries must be in JPG or PNG form (BMPs are too big), posted to a publicly accessible website (like the HeroMachine :,ImageShackPhotoBucket, or whatever); 

  • Entries must be made as a comment or comments to this post, containing a link directly to the image and the character name; 
  • Please name your filesas [your name]-[character name].[file extension] before you upload it. So DiCicatriz, for instance, would save his “Bayou Belle” character image as DiCicatriz-BayouBelle.png.
