In a fit of something or other, I picked up Hero Designer the other day. My longest running Hero character is Emoticon. Here he is by way of Hero Designer. For comparison, here’s the old version. The latter is from Fourth Edition, and Hero Designer is a Fifth Edition product, which explains the differences in pointage. Hero Designer is, all in all, pretty slick. A bit slow because it’s written in Java, but that makes it cross-platform, which means it runs on linux now and I can use it on my Mac when Apple releases Java 1.4. Neat.
