CONTEST: Hero Design

MARINES! Command has sent us a data packet of new recruits vying to be the next Hero to join the universally acclaimed Iron Marines. This is no easy task, as there are hundreds of applicants every day, but rest assured this packet contains the best of the best. It's down to the senior staff to determine which is the best candidate.

Your mission here is simple. For the first ever Iron Marines contest, the task is to design a potential Hero for the game.

The entry should be plausible, and fit within the confines of the game.

Name your Hero and provide a description of their appearance. Images should not be submitted for the contest, as a recognised style can give away your anonymity.

Your potential hero requires three skills. Two active and one passive. Each skill should have a basic effect, a Silver upgrade and a Gold upgrade

Briefly explain your Hero's play style. Are they all about attack, or are the best held back to defend your base? Can they tank attacks, or work best attacking from a distance?

What does your Hero sound like? Every hero has a few catchphrases, what can we expect to hear from them?

Lastly, give your hero a history. Who are they, what makes them a hero?

---------------------------------------------------------

You have until Friday, October 7th to submit your entries. The longer period is to allow new members time to get used to taking part.

All entries must be sent to me via a Private Message or they will not be valid to enter.

I will accept edits and updates on your entries up until the closing date. Please resend the entire entry and I will use your most recent submission.

I need your entire entry in one PM. Sections sent separately will not be counted

The Hero Design box is an edited Play button from Iron a Marines, as the Contest Discussion box in the sticky thread is from the loading screen with the factoids on. The spittle banners include the icons from the Mission Overview screens, and I just found a futuristic looking font to go on them. I thought I would make it look more stylised :)

Ty for the edit, where did August come from!? Must have fallen into a wormhole there.

Also, I've added a requirement for some Hero quotes.

I already finished my hero today. I'm really curious to see what the others will think of.

Having active skill buttons opens up a lot of possibilities for designing a hero that was simply not possible in the KR series. Like how Ajax can keep a group of enemies in place with his stun to then mow them down with his helicopter skill, or how Fate can deploy a bomb undetected using her chameleon armor. Things like that look simplistic at first but add a lot to the hero in my opinion, especially when as well executed as Fate. Imagine if all future heroes are as interactive and complex as Fate. Anyways, before I go on and on about how amazing Fate is, I just think that Iron Marines allows for a lot more creative hero designs than was possible in KR.

I'm assuming for stats you just want us to cross-reference with the KR games?
