    And here's a WIP of my hero.

    [​IMG]
    Nightmare
    Many years ago, Nightmare was once a human child but after a terrible encounter with werewolves, he became one of them. He lost his memory after the attack, remnants of his past were destroyed, he couldn't remember his name or anything, all he knew was that he is a Lycan. During his days as a werewolf, he lived alone in a pack and was trained to be an elite warrior. As time grew he became more and more enraged but for no reason, this caused him to be more and more brutal. He killed one of his men while sparring and due to this, the alpha of his pack banished him from their tribe, furious about this sentiment, Nightmare attacked the alpha wolf but lost. The pack left him half-dead by the road, he lay there for days as his wounds healed and after a week, he woke up and his rage grew stronger, filling his heart with hatred. And so, he traveled to the icy north and there he trained hard. After many years of training, he has now come back, hunting down his tribe with revenge in his eyes.

    Fury
    Ravage
    Blue Howl
    Feral Impulse
    During his training, he has
    perfected an ability that lets
    him take away a part of
    himself and menifest it into
    a physical being, a wolf,
    and with Nightmare's help,
    will bring down anything.
    With Nightmare's thirst for
    battle and blood, his
    power increases causing
    his attacks to become quicker
    and stronger, each hit becoming
    fatal.
    Warriors in battle will hear a
    startling howl signifying
    Nightmare's presence.
    Allied units will be encouraged
    to stand longer in battle and
    increase their defenses,
    whilst enemy units will
    tremble in fear causing them
    to lower their guard.
    Nightmare becomes more
    and more feral as the battle
    rages on, giving him an extra
    boost in power and doubles the
    efficiency of his abiilities.

    Probably due to that a normal melee hero has a level cap of 10 and 4 abilities.

    I'll follow this for sure. Unfortunatly, my JNGP doesn't work on my W7 64x for some unknown reason (exporter f*cked up).

    Good luck!

    EDIT:

    And why is cJASS allowed? It's not allowed, neither in the spell section nor the JASS section and I do wonder who will be the judge, Nest? :)

    A question:
    What is the max level of a hero/hero's ability?

    10, don't raise that cap, otherwise the balance criterium won't be estimated right.

    cJass is allowed, because it works just fine; I doubt anyone will use it though. Since it's a coding language, I don't see why it shouldn't be included. I'm tired of previous contests with hundreds of limitations.

    As for the judge, I'll ask Bribe, Dr Super Good, Berb and Maker, unless someone wants to fill in.

    By the way, I love your WiPs guys, the way you present your heroes; lore is really important.

    I'll go for a bird hero.

    It's been since yesterday that the contest has started, no one had enough of time to express such will :p

    @GunSlinger21, yes, the rules state that.

    Transformation will be really common, so, as long as the transformed figure has a set of 4 skills (the fourth being the transformation back to the original form), it is fine.

    Alright cJASS is in I guess.

    But you should mention about third-party programs in the rules to clearify for users (just because). And yes I know still picking at you pha but WEU triggers then?

    I wouldn't like it, but Spells section supports UMSWE triggers, so why not here.

    Contestants must create a hero with a concept linked with the world of animals. The hero must possess the basics of an animal and combine the key of human nature with the one of animal instincts.

    Yes thats alright.

    Elves and faeries are mythical beings, not animals (though some mythical beings can be considered animals, those aren't).

    Garfield1337 is right, fairies don't resemble animal nature and animal skills would be conceptually inaccurate on them.
    Elves on the other hand are fine, for example a druid is a sticking out concept or some ranger that tames animals, that one can be used too.
