    Be Part of the Legacy! - Forge a 5⭐Hero!

    Help build the first ever community created character in Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast!

    Work together to create a brand new 5⭐ Awakenable Ally! From now until May 2021 we will be updating this thread with a series of polls and open submission calls that will flesh out this community driven hero. Once finalized, the character will be set for release in July as part of our 5th Anniversary Celebration!

    Part 1 - Character Ideas and Themes

    The votes are in! The very first ‘Forge a Hero’ character will be: A STRANGER IN A STRANGE LAND INSPIRED ALIEN

    We received 620 votes, the majority of which selected an Alien inspired by the cover of Stranger in a Strange Land to be the character we all build together.

    This character idea has been passed along to the art team for concepting.

    So, what now?

    PART 2 - CHARACTER CLASS SELECTION WINNER - SENTINEL!

    Our Alien’s class has been selected! We will be building a Sentinel!

    We received 428 votes. It was a close race between Sentinel and Gunner, but Sentinel won by just 1 (one!!) vote, making up for 27% of player responses.

    PART 3 - BASIC ATTACK BUILD - COMPLETE

    The votes are in! Our character will have a basic attack that does the following:
    • Inflicts Random Damage
    • Applies a survivability effect (Invincibility, Immunity, Endure etc.) to multiple allies
    • Applies a Reduce Survivability effect (Permadeath, Doom, Perfect Corruption etc.) to multiples enemies

    PART 4 - POWER ATTACK BUILD - COMPLETE

    The votes are in! Our character will have a Power attack that does the following:
    • Inflicts Random Damage
    • Applies a damage immunity effect to multiple allies
    • Applies a Reduce Utility effect (Seal, Stop etc) to multiples enemies


    PART 5 - PASSIVE ABILITY SUBMISSION

    We’re nearly there! We’ve decided on the direction of our 5⭐ Sentinel’s basic and power attacks, so it’s time to address the passive ability.

    What kind of passive do you picture this character having? We are looking for general ideas of what you want this passive to do. Here’s an example of what we’re looking for:

    Example Idea: The passive will reward the hero when the enemy team has Reduce Utility effects. Also, the passive will be able to remove Beneficial Effects from enemies, healing the hero.

    Please note in the final iteration of the passive ability, the design team may use one or more of the basic or power attack effects to create synergies for this passive. So be sure to consider the previous attack effects when submitting your idea!

    Submissions are now closed.

    You have until May 5th at 9am to submit your ideas!

    Once your submissions have been received, the design team will select their top picks and we’ll put them to a vote!

    PART 6 - CHARACTER CONCEPT VOTE - COMPLETE

    We're nearly there! Our character concept has officially been selected!

    It was a tight race between all 3 concepts, with options A & B being neck and neck for most of the week. After a total of 664 votes, and with 239 votes to her name, we will be moving forward with Character Concept A!

    Were you a fan of the other two designs? Never fear! We love them too and it's likely you'll see them pop up sometime in the future….

    Now that our character is selected, it's time to put on the finishing touches. Our designers are still filtering through all of your Passive Ability suggestions. While that work is in progress, there are still a couple more elements to complete. UP NEXT:

    We'll be voting on various Talisman wheel layouts AND accepting submissions for our character's name. What do you think this red dressed killer would be called?

    Cast your vote now on talisman layouts, and/or submit your name ideas here: https://forms.gle/gYGGhXCqNRKLowJN6

    Votes/Submissions open until May 14th

    Once your submissions have been received, the design team will select their top name picks and we'll put them to a vote!

    After all aspects of the character have been decided we’ll then be using the month of June to fully build and test this character, with a planned launch in July 2021!

    Please note:
    • Character pitches should be focused on a 5⭐ Awakenable Ally. We are not accepting pitches for new Eddies for this initiative
    • Any character submissions should have a connection to the Iron Maiden brand and lore.
    • Any submissions that contain objectionable material (racism, sexism, homophobia or any other kind of negative stereotyping) will be rejected.
    • We are committed to working with the community throughout this process however, our design team reserves the right to make alterations based on gameplay/technical requirements. Thank you for your understanding!

    The song “for the greater good of god” mentions famine, death, war. My suggestion is a personification of the 4 horsemen. Pestilemce being the unmentioned but maybe implied.

    In Norse literature, there is documentation about a torture technique appropriately known as the Blood Eagle. I feel like it would totally be an awesome character to be added to the game.

    I already have a lot of ideas about what the standard and power attack could be for non awakened and awakened as well as its passive ability because I have wanted the chance to talk about this character for a long time now. I already submitted the idea to the link provided but didn't get a chance to talk about my ideas, if you want to hear it please feel free to ask me on my email lukejwillard@icloud.com

    To corroborate Nifelheim, I threw in the suggestion of Death/The Grim Reaper as a Magus or Assassin. We've seen this fellow lurking around in the likes of The Trooper single cover and SSE's present basic. I would fuckin love to see all four horsemen. Khan Ed and Genghis coexisting suggest that this could happen even with GRE. Also opens up the opportunity to add Alexander the Great!

    This gave me pretty much a Dark Souls vibe that I think would go very well with the LOTB Universe.

    Can you imagine a apocalypse knight who represented Death and who looked like Yhorm the Giant?

    Now imagine all 4 horsemen of the apocalypse with a themed Eddie, something like "Last Judgment Eddie" or just "Apocalypse Eddie".

    We already have some characters with passive effects that are enhanced when in the same team with others, it would be very epic if by joining these 4 characters (Death, Famine, War and Pestilence) we had some combo that would break the game even more.

    Maybe I'm dreaming too much about this proposal to just suggest the theme of a new awakenable 5* character?

    Yes, maybe.

    I actually imagine death looking like gre/ferryman, but a female, with rose petals

    This is a great initiative. The form only allows one entry per email address, so I'm posting additional ideas here.

    *

    Egyptian Gods (inspired by Powerslave)
    Bastet
    Apophis
    Thoth

    Demon-Goddesses, Sisters of Lilith (inspired by Lord of Light)
    Naamah
    Agrat bat Mahlat
    Eisheth Zenunim

    Other Angels & Demons (inspired by Lord of Light and Fallen Angel)
    Archangel Michael
    Samael
    Azazel

    *

    Babalon aka Scarlet Woman aka Scarlet Whore aka Daughter of Fortitude (inspired by Moonchild and The Alchemist)

    https://liberbabalon.gydja.com/fortitude.html

    *

    Nyarlathotep and King in Yellow and other Lovecraft-inspired characters.

    The tombstone in the Live After Death cover art quotes Lovecraft. Also, Lovecraft "reported" that The Alchemist John Dee allegedly translated the Necronomicon, but it was never published and only fragments remain.
