Got my roll and started working on something.This is really fun I've played a similar game like this.You could also add some facial features and accessories to the rolls but then again...without them we have more freedom in customizing :D

I don't mind posting my rolls but I think I will post them with the Image itself

Nice, but I think the way the species and power rolls worked more along the lines of rolling to see your set, then rerolling to get your spesific one instead of choosing for yoyrself .

Yes , Ornery got it right :D You guys roll once to see what which board u get and then roll again to see which number. To reply to some other questions asked above: You guys add your roll once you post the image or add them on the image itself. No need to say what you rolled before finishing the piece.

Also , the whole point of this is to trigger your imagination by having to combine seemingly random features. Dont limit yourself with archetypical characters , go crazy! The pannel is made so you get enough features to create a hero but still have all the freedom in the world to design him :D

Have fun guys!

Thor is neither human, nor ranged. And As OP stated warriors can't be ranged.

Thor is melee , the fact that he can throw the hammer doesnt make him ranged. An archer can stab someone with an arrow in close combar , still he is a ranged warrior. Likewise a swordsman may throw his sword to impale someone , still he is a melee combatant. The list can go on forever. Melee and range does not mean that the character is crippled. It means that his combat style/weapon of choice is specialised. If you roll melee you must draw someone who fights in close combat. If he is ranged he must fight from afar. I really cant see whats so difficult to get.

I think he's just in a mood to be annoying. Or he has never ever seen Thor before.

oh christ.
I wasn't talking about Thor fitting that exact description. Forget about Thor; that picture shows a guy throwing a hammer. The picture doesn't hint that he's not human; the picture doesn't hint that he usually uses the hammer for melee purposes.
i.e. a human male using a ranged lightning attack; and since it's a hammer and not a bow or dagger or sneaky sneaky kind of character; he's pretty warrior-like for a ranged guy.

yeah I misread the thing about warriors not being ranged - shoot me.

J-qb , no need to get frustrated , im not trying to make anyone feel bad about anything. Im just trying to clarify everything so people will get the most out of daily hero. Not everyone is accustomed to the archetypes used by fantasy games. Your comment was a stepping stone to clarify this for everyone to see , in case someone is confused about who is ranged and who is not. I think we should all just relax and have fun :)

About the Thor picture , if we take by account what you said , i would personally doubt that he is ranged simply cause in the picture he is shown having only one hammer. Hammers are big so he cant be hiding more like he could do with daggers. And a ranged character needs lots of projectiles to fight. Unless ofcourse he is a wizard who magically creates stuff but from Thor's outfit and the fact that the hammer looks very material , witchcraft wouldnt cross my mind either.

Anyway i think this is getting way out of topic with that thor flying around lol. I hope everyone understands the game and people will have fun playing it. If you guys got more questions feel free to ask away!

So my roll was a human female tank with a mechanical skillset with melee attacks. This will be fun indeed. ;)

I rolled a melee female support ( one off from Assassin, which would have made my day ) but I gotta ask, what the hell is support in this case?

I think support means she doesn't fight, like maybe she is dropping of ammo or healing, making weapons, constructing castles, etc.
Amiright?

Make that an arcane-based melee support orc female.

Normally that's things the other classes have added to their skillset. Like technically, the healer is support. Or mages would have support spells that make their comrades stronger or something of the sort.

Hey guys , im so excited your having fun with DH! Great submissions so far , im looking forward to see more! I see some people have trouble realising what role does each class represent. Let me clarify it:

Mage: a character who uses magic to fight. A ranged mage is the usual spellcaster you come across in every fantasy setting. A melee mage is a more refined class that needs a little bit more imagination ;) He may be creating weapons with magic , maybe enhancing his powers , maybe transforming into something more potent in close combat. Its up to you.

Healer: Healer is a serial murderer. Lol jk , healer is the nurse of the team , he heals people , you know...by healing them. A ranged healer may be using magic to heal his friends while a melee healer might be a more realistic doctor or sm1 who uses herbs and potions to mend wounds.

Support: supportive characters are often magic users but can also not be. They are the subtle players of the team that do the work away from the spotlights. A supportive character may be a wizard who buffs his friends with powerful auras or someone who cripples his enemies with vicious curses. He may be someone who makes traveling easier or someone who sneaks around , disarming traps and stealing keys. To sum it up , supportive heroes are those who use their skills in favor of their teamates , they do not attaint victory on themselves but assure that their companions will have an easy time achieving the common goal. REMEMBER , healers are another class , dont mix those two.

Assassin: These are the sneaky bastards. An assassin is someone who achieves victory in a swift decisive move. Wether he uses poisonus daggers , a gun or something more exotic , the assassin is not a duelist but a killer.

Warrior: Warriors are heroes who spent their lives training in the art of war. They are aggresive and exceptional at bar brawls. A warrior may be a disciplined swordsman or a feral beast. The one thing all warriors have in common is their superiority in furious melee combat.

Tank: Just like the warrior , tanks are combatants who fight in close range. Unlike the warrior , tanks are not an aggresive player but quite the opposite. A tank is an individual who can absorb a huge amount of damage. A good hearted tank is someone who protects his teamates from harm , a bodyguard. A more selfish tank is someone who protects himself , fighting a battle of attrition , knowing that even though his blows are not deadly enough , he will outlive his enemy anyway. Tanks can be from knights clad in plate to monsters with hard shells or thick hides. Anything that is slow and hard to kill can be considered a tank.

These are the briefings. I hope they help you and solve every question you might have. Please remember , the point of DH is to make ur imagination work , its not to design archetypes we have all seen a million times. Have fun playing and feel free to ask me for anything. Once i finish some commissions i think ill join the fun aswell hehe!

Guys! Here's my sketch. If I find the time I'll make a decent coloured version of this dude.
The combination was Male-Warrior-Undead-Ice, so I kind of gave him a viking-feel.

Threw a generator for this together because the rng site I usually use was giving me pretty biased results for this. I kept getting 6s and 1s almost exclusively.
I'm thinking my usual rng site is kinda shitty.
