The Winners of the Fable Heroes Founder Challenge are:
Logan, the brother of the Hero and former King. Theresa has given him a chance to make up for his wrong doings. He took her offer and she also granted him a new found power. Now he is able wield magic spells to help his brother and fellow comrades whether it be close combat or from afar.
In the grand tradition of Fable my hero is a dog. It’s a Husky puppy called Diefenbaker. He is magical and can talk. His special combat skill is melting his enemies hearts with cuteness, even if they are so so evil that they don’t have one! His talent set is huge, he can sit, fetch, give paw, play dead,…
This is Grumbles the Grilled Cheese Ninja Chef! Since failing culinary school for only being able to create grilled cheese sandwiches, Grumbles honed his cooking skills for battle. Adorned with his polarized UV glasses, he can star into any oven without singeing his corneas. While he make a great grilled cheese the molten cheddar is hot enough to inflict 3rd degree burns and they can be tossed with deadly accuracy up to 50 yards. Also Grumbles was the star quarterback for Albion Culinary Institute.
Heroes Name: Fang
Battle skills: strength skill of Swords fighting and has the will skills “Stop time” and “push”.
My hero would be named Cheffy Le Bleu.
Cheffy comes from a long family line of warriors. He always yearned for something else though. He wanted to be a chef. He never did pass training though as his food was never really good. That never stopped him though. He never stopped trying to cook better. That is until evil swept the land. Cheffy knew what he had to do and knew he was good with blades and knives from all of his cooking training. So he dawned his family armor and blades and went on a conquest to help sweep the land of evil. Never once did he ever remove his chef cap though. That way everyone could tell from a distance that he was Cheffy and knew to fear him if they did wrong. Cheffy. Master of blades, amateur of gourmet. Those hobbes and Balverines better watch their backs.
My Heroes name is Xen. My hero is a Barbarian/Theif hybrid. From Xens’ Barbarian half, he has a double axe/sword combo weapon, giving Xen the brute force strength to chop through enemies. The Necklance he has equiped is the Eye of the Berserker, the eye is able to Lock on to an enemy and then charge Xen with Berserker strength. After the ability is fully charged the eye pulls the enemy towards Xen to unleash the berserker strength. The Theif half of Xen provides other abilities. The blue gem that forms Xens palm starts to pulse when treasure is nearby, the faster the pulsing the better the treasure, works on enemies to detect if they are carrying special treasure as well. The monocle that he wears is able to assess an enemy, whether they are truely friend or foe, as well is able to assess a characters physical or magical strength. When Xen places the blue gem in front of his monocle it unlocks a special ability, Xen is no able to see through doors/walls or enemy clothing to detect hidden weapons/treasure/traps.
Name: Ice Kube (Used to be spelled Cube but he didn’t want to be sued for any copyright issues)
Background story: His childhood dream was becoming a rapper and actor. After failing miserably at both he decided it was time to get married, have a dog and become king of Albion. He always thought the last 3 kings were losers. It’s time to have a GREAT king again.
Image: See attachement
1. Special Weapon of Choice: He will hurl his bling at the enemy (currently not wearing it in this pic, since the last enemy dodged the attack and ran away with the bling). His side quest is finding back his bling. Until then he will use the sword he stole…uh “borrowed” from King Hero last night.
2. Special Magic Ability: He will rap so bad that the enemies will go completely deaf which causes the state of confusion and leaves them open for easy attacks.
3. Special Summon: He can summon his girlfriend who will squash any enemy that dares to oppose him with her huuuuge butt.
Due to his body being made out of ice, he is virtually indestructable. He can turn into a puddle of water at will, which makes it very hard for anyone to hit him. He can manipulate his body so he can grow a pair of arms and legs. Plus he can always let his girlfriend do the dirty work for him.
He hates anything that produces heat. Heat/fire slows him down considerably. Once he is king and has enough lackeys, he will ban anything from that category from his kingdom.
All hail King Ice Kube!
My character ive drawn out would go by the name of stella, short for Stelithian , her first ability allows players to Throw down a smokescreen to stun enemies and blind them to your presence for a short duration further leveling can allow for smoke to be replaced with poison for a more damaging effect . Secondly my character has the ability of Planting a Frost Trap which causes Ice and Freezing Damage to all nearby enemies when it explodes. A maximum of 4 traps can be placed at one time. Lastly Stella has the ability to Go into a berserker rage,enabling higher damage output, dealing greater and greater amounts of damage with each enemy you defeat in a short time.
Drew together a character I have named, Ethenian.
Battle skills included an 1. AOE spin attack that enables users to spin in a clockward fashion hitting all enemies within range of their weapon,
2. a Fast Casting healing spell that allows the user to target himself, or members of his party for quick healing during combat.
3. Special attacks include a lunging sword attack with the ability to pierce multiple enemies at a time, forces the user forward at high speeds to enable good piercing range.

Brief Description: Since there are two heavy attack characters, two range characters, and one rogue, Shadow fills the other rogue character. Shadow has knives for mid range attacks. He uses his speed to avoid attacks and grab coins. Finally, he has ninja stars if he needs to go long range.
