...What is the point exactly of this thread? How exactly are you making these heroes?

I mean, it doesn't sound like you already have an idea set up here. Just a thread where people can tell you what to do.

Sorry to say, I expect this thread to collapse into a mass of spam and then to be locked in short time.

he is right, it isn't the best idea. I mean everybody will have to many ideas, and most likely you will be overwhelmed by this. I know its your choice but I think you should stop before you get overwhelmed. If I got overwhelmed that much it would be worse than finals. Well if I tried this I would probably quit.

Speaking of tentacles... this would be some good practice: create a Lovecraftian-style monster. Don't forget to include the Non-Euclidean geometry. (Hint: the main monster in "The Dunwitch Horror" is invisible, so you don't actually need to make a sprite...)

Though, on a serious note, do you intend to make the sprites or just the stats? If you're merely giving new stats to old sprites on request, why do you need to get ideas from a thread?

I can understand proposing to help with wml-ing ideas - then this is the wrong forum section
I can undderstand proposing to make sprites - then this is the wrong forum section

I can't understand how you could help making a hero from an idea - if you got an idea for a hero, you practically got the hero. All it needs more is art and maybe some advanced wmling (and this is not the forum section for that), cause playing around with only stats is pretty pointless and not giving any useful experience.

Or maybe you want to make a hero that will solve the world financial crisis?

No really i don't see any sense in this thread, you seem to have gotten some idea but didn't think through what you really wanted.

Like this? What would it's attacks be? How fast would it be? Would it be frail or robust? What should it be called?

Great! Now give it 3 legs and a hand, and it's attack would be a slingshot.
It'll be robust and fast. Call it the "Ziggasaur".
And about the color, I want it to be all pink please, with some green circles.

Is this WIP what you had in mind?

HP - 52
MP - 7
Attacks
Ram - 16-2
Sling - 7-4

I can make changes. It is strong because it is a dinosaur (guessing by name).

That looks great! :D

I suggest a goblin with an arm coming out of his head. It should be frail, but the upper hand should hold two swords. He should also have a whip.
