Frequently Asked Questions
What is Exordium Heroes?
Exordium Heroes is a premiere character customization tool to help tabletop RPG gamers visualize the character they will be playing. Once created you will be able to use the art in a variety of ways, VTT tokens, printed character sheets, character cards, 2D cutout minis, and more. You can use it for making cover art for your own stories, or even use it as inspiration for cosplay.
What is your mission?
Our mission is to create fun entertainment for gamers of all types. With current technology, it's now so much easier for digital tools to be a part of the traditional pen and paper tabletop market. Using our past experience making games we aim to augment traditional gaming in new and exciting ways while supporting traditional gameplay scenarios.
Is this for a specific tabletop RPG?
We are aiming for this tool to be as platform agnostic as possible. It's essentially a very fancy paper doll system, which we feel is a very versatile direction for the tool. You can use this in any traditional fantasy RPG, book cover art, graphic novels, etc... We want it to be as accessible as it can be for everyone. If you want to visualize a fantasy character you created, then this is the tool to use.
How many races will you have?
We are aiming to have at least 12-15 races at launch. We want to give players the opportunity to create whomever they want as much as possible. Our next big challenge will be creating a digitigrade character and adding it to the system. Once we tackle that, it will open up a whole slew of character race types. Stay tuned for that update.
Where can I provide feedback?
The meat and potatoes of why this site is even up right now! We don't want to create this tool in a vacuum, so we actively want to get feedback from the community as we work on the tool. We are a small team of two right now and are eager to get to know more people who are as excited about this as we are. So join Discord to be a part of the process of Exordium Heroes development. It's going to be a fun journey and can't wait to meet you all!
