Forstune, the Cardclasher

Dire Strength

Forstune is a man whose power lies on making tricks and plays. He may change his playstyle depending on situation, but if luck favors him, he can be a tough guy.

Forstune was a well-known casino player on Keen villages and port towns. His skill with decks, dices and coins were no-where seen; a bet against him was a lost bet. The Cardclasher - as his rivals named him - made fortune and fame with High Risk, High Reward plays.
The Cardclasher abandoned his life of dice tricks and money bets to play with a higher risk (and a higher reward too): battle tricks and life bets. Years of easy wins weren't enough to satify the man. He wanted real risks, better rewards than just shiny coins. Watching a big brawl at the Wolfsden Tavern was the starting point that made him choose the life of battles. (Forstune won the bet that day of who would win the fight: the guy know as the "Terror from the Barrier").
Since that day, Forstune entered the battle of Ancients to see if his final bet will win.

Restless Revenant

You can find it here

There are more than a few folktale of the restless dead haunting this world. The fine people of Elze told a story of a mother's ghost forever haunting her own son for murdering her, his sleep was full of terrifying nightmares of the heartbroken sobs and questioning of her mother. The people of the Hoven tell stories of the archer-demon Clinkz, once a proud and beloved man fell on darkness after his battle with the demon Maraxiform, his soul corrupted with the fires of hell and embodying his skeletal body.

But there is one story noone knows and never told before. The restless souls, be their death from betrayal or war or curses, gathered in one place and became one, single entity out of nightmares. Its origin unknown to any soul, and even the greatest of wizards could not feel regular magics from it. Its essence were of ancient times, it is power not even the Fundamentals could comprehend. It did not control what little mana it possesses, instead it draws on its own vital essence to sow fear to any unlucky mortal that crosses his path.

The Revenant became an entity of no heart, it do not have mercy or remorse, and it has only one desire: to be free and rest. But the souls in their host do not know how, and so they wander the wold, killing everything in its path, trying- to no avail, but this they do not know- to find peace and rest.

Dire, Strength

Base Health: 587 (0.9/s)
Base Mana: 169 (0.5/s)
Base Damage: 51
Base Armor: 3
Base Movement Speed: 295
Base Attack Time: 1.7
Attack Range: 128 (Melee)
Vision Range: 1800/800
STR: 23 (+2.2)
AGI: 19 (+2.2)
INT: 13 (+1.0)


Q/W/E: Level 2/3/5/7
R : Level 1/9/17

(Q)Vengeance (unit target, pure, affects enemies)
Each nearby allied creeps that died will grant Restless Revenant one Vengeance charge. Stacking to a maximum of 4, all charge will be consumed by this spell to let out a bolt that deals magical damage.
Cast range: 600
Cooldown: 6
Death radius: 450
Damage per charge: 10/20/30/40


Souls that do not merge with the Restless Revenant still obey its command, and its powerful magics convert the soul to a bolt that destroys vitality.

(W)Soul Tear (toggle, magical, affects enemies)
When toggled, each of the Restless Revenant's attack will cost of a portion of its health. In exchange, the Restless Revenant's attack will have increased attack range and deal bonus magical damage and have a movement speed slow.
Health cost: 25+ 6.5% of max health
Movement slow: 12/19/26/33%
Movement slow duration: 2
Bonus damage: 30/50/70/90
Bonus attack range: 170


The Revenant uses its dark essence to enchant its blade. The enchantment grants it phantasmal powers, ravaging body and soul by cutting the air around its foe.

(E)Mist of Terror (target area, affects enemies)
At the cost of a portion of health, shrouds the targeted area with a mist of dark magic, granting it flying vision. In addition, enemies in the mist has a chance to miss their attacks.
Health cost: 150 +20% of max health
Cast range: 1000
Cooldown: 34
Mist duration: 17
Miss chance: 17%
Radius: 400/475/550/625


The Restless Revenant is often encountered in the woods with light blue mist. It is here where hunters, wanderers, and warriors sword-danced with their doom.

(T)School of Souls (passive)
Being an entity formed of souls, the Restless Revenant gains charges of souls that blocks incoming damage. Lost health and used souls will regenerate over time, but will be put into cooldown upon being attacked or losing health. Levelling this ability will prevent any healing done to Restless Revenant and other sources of health regeneration will have no effect. Can be activated so that for 6 seconds the soul charge (but not health) always regenerates regardless of cooldown. When activated, this ability will be put into cooldown. Cannot be activated if this ability is already on cooldown.
Number of souls: 11/15/19
Cooldown: 20
Health regeneration rate: 3% max health per second
Soul regeneration rate: 1/2/2 souls per second


The Restless Revenant had its souls to protect their host from any damage to its dark, vital essence to its animation.

So here it is, my hero. I tried to designed him to be a lane dominator and early-midgame monster that falls off in the late game. The hero uses no mana, instead uses health. However, spending his health is mostly not a big deal due to the soul charges protecting him from harassment. But

Vengeance is a free harassing tool that allow him to zone his opposing laner and maybe allow him to be played mid at some situations. However, unlike other heroes who uses mana, this ability can only be used once per wave (Most of the time) and cannot be followup with a Lina-style combo

Soul Tear is his attack modifier. At first I meant it to be an auto-cast orb but my head spin with the orb+attack range on melee hero thing in ability draft that makes it increase range with manual cast only, but then I realized a melee hero that can orb-walk is somewhat OP. So I made it a toggleable ability. Moving on, the fact that the only thing that pierce BKB is the bonus range makes him weak late game (which was intended)

Mist of Terror is a way for him to siege high ground, take roshan, manfight, or catch juking enemies. Solid utility all-around.

School of Souls is his bread and butter. He levels this ability at level one and he needs it to survive harasses. Against few heroes he is utter **** but against some he is a monster to lane against. When activated, he automatically has sustain for fights but getting caught means he cannot use it.

-Great laning
-Okay attack damage
-Good early-mid game

-Is a niche hero (Some hero ****s him up really bad)
-No initiation skills
-Somewhat kiteable

Don't Worry, Be Happy

Trion the Brim Ripper

(Create a hero with unique mechanic)

Hero Introduction

Trion here is a hero that I created for the third theme, a hero with unique mechanic. Well, let's cut to the chase and say his unique mechanic, he cannot auto-attack. This means that he cannot right click (the only normal attack he can do is deny), so how is he supposed to be played then? This is where the fancy things happen, he has an inbound skill called Rip. This skill allows Trion to attack directly in front of him instead of the usual right click, much alike to action games like DmC or Bastion, and that kind of game was my inspiration.

With Rip unique mechanic, all his skills and attacks are capable to have area of effect (albeit pretty small radius), thus allowing him to farm rather quickly and become a beast late game. This hero is intended to be a dangerous late carry, which focuses on his dual blade. When I say dual blade, I mean that this hero can choose how he want to attack after learning his third skill, with Somatic Rip or Mind Rip, that allows him to choose the damage output and debuff he wants to use. This is essential because his ultimate allows him to have different effect on the debuffs, using more Somatic Rip will essentially make him tankier, and more Mind Rip will lower his enemies' magical resistance, increasing his DPS when attacking with Mind Rip.

Despite his strong points (heck, he essentially has free BF), he has a rather essential problem: he cannot use Unique Attack Modifier. Yep, he cannot lifesteal, he cannot slow, he cannot reduce armor, nor can he proc chain lightning. This makes him dependant on his ultimate skill and huge base movement speed, which leads to the next problem: he is easily kited. Nonetheless, his high durability is capable to let him overcome most torture, and he will just keep getting stronger and stronger the longer the fight drags on while making his enemies weaker with his ultimate. This puts his enemy into a tricky situation where they have to burst him down, but failure to do so will mean them committing too much just for him to come out stronger. Nonetheless, he's very weak in early game since his single useful spell in early game is Nothl Entrapment that only disable without dealing any additional damage. Because of this, he should be quite easy to be shut down early game.

P.S: I tried making him based on the Grim Reaper (obviously from the title), and thus I tried a different style of lore to make it rather eerie, do tell me your opinion on this please.
P.P.S: Anyone who can guess the inspiration of his name and initial idea will get a +Rep :P


Darkness, darkness, when it enshrouds the sky
Beware, beware, for he shall be passing by
A spark of violet, t’was the start of tragedy
A flash of blue, does foretell our agony

Shall you not heed this exhortation?
Shall you not fear the undoing of creation?
For he is shrouded in the canvas of universe
And pride of man’s armory his eternal curse

He simultaneously walks the planes of the world
One in the realm of light and darkness whirled
Two in the maze so narrow under the scape
Oh listen to the souls wishing to escape!

And three in our world so petty, ripped open a brim
So now you would run and weep, hide and scream!
No one could survive his power, so just tremblingly whisper!
Whisper as you utter his name, Trion the Brim Ripper!


Faction: The Dire
Primary Attribute: Agility
Attack Type: None
Roles: Carry, Disabler, Durable

Str: 90 at 25 (23 + 2.8/level)
Agi: at 95 (23+ 3.0/level)
Int: 65 at 25 (17 + 2.0/level)

Health: 1537 at 25
MP: 845 at 25
Armor: 18 (5 base armor + 13) at 25
Movement: 325
Range: 0 (Cannot auto-attack)
Base Damage: 56-60


[D] Rip: Trion swings his blade, ripping enemies in front of him and dealing physical damage equals to his current damage in a half-circular radius of 200 points in front of him. This skill has 2 seconds cooldown that is reduced by Trion’s attack speed. This skill is inbound skill and doesn’t need to be leveled.


[Q] Nothl Entrapment: The Brim Ripper rips the brim of physical realm, causing a part of it to overlap with the Nothl realm. This skill creates a buff on Trion that causes any enemy unit damaged by his next Rip to be stunned for a short duration. After stunned, all affected units will receive two debuffs, one that stops HP regeneration and another that stops MP regeneration. If Plane Rift is active, any enemy unit passing through the rift created with this skill will also be affected by this skill’s effect. Each instance of Torn will increase the duration of HP stop, while each instance of Detached will increase MP stop.

- 1.6 second stun, 3 seconds base duration
- 1.9 seconds stun, 4 seconds base duration
- 2.2 seconds stun, 5 seconds base duration
- 2.5 seconds stun, 6 seconds base duration

Type: No Target
Affect: Self
Pierces Spell Immunity: No

Mana Cost: 120
Cool Down: 15 seconds
Buff Duration: 5 seconds
Debuff duration increase: 0.2 seconds/instance

Just a moment in the Nothl realm can hinder the mind and body of any soul


[W] Plane Rift: The Brim Ripper uses his power to rip a hole between the planes, causing any attack he does to create a rift in the plane. This skill is a toggle skill that drains MP whenever Trion uses Rip, and it causes the Rip radius to continuously deal damage instance to any enemy unit passing through the radius. This skill will create different rift for Somatic Rip or Mind Rip. Each individual rift stacks with another rift and lasts 4 seconds individually, and each damage instance will add a Torn or Detached instance to any damaged unit according to the rift type.

- 2 instances of damage/second
- 3 instances of damage/second
- 4 instances of damage/second
- 5 instances of damage/second

Type: Toggle
Affect: Enemy Units
Damage Type: Physical
Pierces Spell Immunity: Yes
MP Cost: 30 per attack
Damage: 10% damage

Ripping a hole in the plane is a bad idea, and keeping it open is even worse


[] Scourge of Underscape: Trion uses his experience in the Underscape to empower his enchanted blade. This skill changes Rip into Somatic Rip and Mind Rip. Leveling this skill will passively increase the radius and reduce the base cooldown of Somatic Rip and Mind Rip. In addition to that, this skill also grants bonus damage resistance to Trion and an instance of Torn or Detached to anyone who damages Trion according to the damage type.

- 260 radius, 1.9 second cooldown, 8% damage resistance
- 290 radius, 1.8 second cooldown, 12% damage resistance
- 320 radius, 1.7 second cooldown, 16% damage resistance
- 350 radius, 1.6 second cooldown, 20% damage resistance

Type: Passive
Affect: Self, Enemy Units
Pierces Spell Immunity: Yes

The scourge of Underscape, he is capable to cut through mind as well as body


[D] Somatic Rip: Trion swings his blade, ripping enemies in front of him and dealing physical damage equals to his current damage in a half-circular shape in front of him. This skill has a cooldown that is reduced by Trion’s attack speed. This skill is leveled once Scourge of Underscape is learned and replaces Rip. Any damage dealt by this skill will create an instance of Torn that has 15 seconds duration.

[F] Mind Rip: Trion swings his blade, ripping the mind of enemies in front of him and dealing magical damage equals to his current damage in a half-circular shape in front of him. This skill is leveled once Scourge of Underscape is learned and shares the same cooldown with Somatic Rip. Any damage dealt by this skill will create an instance of Detached that has 15 seconds duration.


[] Divided Trinity: The Brim Ripper’s mastery of his power allows him to rip through the brim of enemies’ spirits, allowing him to use their weakness to his advantages. This skill will change Torn and Detached into debuffs that steal affected units maximum HP and magic resistance for Trion, respectively based on the number of Torn and Detached. In addition, this skill increases the duration of Torn and Detached debuffs.

- 4 HP each, 0.2% magic resistance each, 30 seconds duration
- 6 HP each, 0.4% magic resistance each, 45 seconds duration
- 8 HP each, 0.6% magic resistance each, 60 seconds duration

Type: No Target
Affects: Enemy Units
Pierces Spell Immunity: Yes

The spirit of a man cannot bear his brokenness, but for a ripped spirit who can survive it?

Hey Yzreel... I'm a bit confused here.

Throughout your hero you mention Torn and Detached.

What exactly are those?

Lemme get this straight:

Torn stops HP regen.
Detached stops MP regen.

{W} and {E} gives Torn and Detached debuffs, while {R} enhances it. But they only come into effect with {Q}. Is that right?
