The only way we can ensure it's done fairly is to do it randomly, like we did with the Hero Nemesis. You state your intent to enter, and I send you a random hero. You can pick a game though, so you get a random hero from that game. That hero is then taken out of future choices.

Finwer, you can't choose KRO, because the challenge is to make the hero into a KRO hero.

If we choose KR, do we get to choose the two more skills they will need as well as the hero spell? If so, I choose KR; if not, KRF.

What? Razor said it would specifically be a story only. I'd rather do both, both that doesn't seem to be what is being aimed for.

I considered doing this, then realised how tiny the entries would be. You take an existing hero, and turn them into a secondary hero, strip away three of their attacks (for Frontiers) or just keep their existing attacks (for Rush), lower their stats and then say which level they appear in. It's very boring. As a fanfic, you can take any of the heroes from any game and write a backstory for them.

Oh, I interpreted it differently. I thought that the contest was to turn a KR or KRF hero into an Origins hero, with a hero spell.

We should do this, along with a backstory. That seems to have the most openness for ideas, as skills could be modified or outright changed to make them a little better (and especially balanced) along with a description of what the younger version looks like. If we agree to this version, I have a format already set up to keep posts anonymous, so long as they're followed. :)

Make a tower based on a hero. For example a monk training school based on Kutsao, or a priest supportive tower like Diedre.

How about a "From Evil to Good" contest where we take a boss from any of the games and make them a hero balanced for the game they appear in? Alternatively, make them all Origins heroes with reasons why they were once good, just like Vez'nan. :)

So, not counting the oversized ones (for hero standards anyway), we'd have Vasile and Gul'Thak (and possibly Lord Blackburn), plus Lord Malagar and the God King if all the non-boss villains are included. I don't think that's not diverse enough.

They grow to larger sizes between Origins and KR or KRF. After all, Ulguk Hai is the only troll of that size, making him special. JT is the only yeti that large, so something had to happen with him that was different. Same applies to other giant bosses.

Plus, contests aren't meant to be perfectly valid for actual in-game content. Would the amalgam heroes ever make it into the game?

These contests are just for fun ( and bragging rights ) so it doesn't really matter if they fit in the game or not.
