We’re back on Bukkit! The forums will be re-enabled as well sometime in the future.
Introduction to Heroes
Created for the MMORPG server Herocraft. Heroes is a dynamic, flexible and highly configurable class, skill and experience system. Heroes itself is the hub of your players RPG experience, boasting classes, multi-tiering, and advanced skills. Along with classes, Heroes offers your players a new style of PvP through our well-developed skill system and our weapon + armor restrictions. No longer will your mages have the ability to use diamond swords, your rogues will no longer sneak around in their heavy diamond tunics and most importantly, you can now hurl fireballs and stun your targets. The best part of this? It’s your choice how your Heroes is set up, don’t want a certain skill, that’s fine, you can just remove the skill and be done with it!
What can I do with it?
With Heroes, you can do almost anything you’d want to do on an RPG server. The main feature is our customizable tiered class system, which offers as much to the server owner as possible. Your Heroes could be totally unique to your server, it could be the reason players play your server over other servers. The same can be said about our skill system, it’s unique to any of the other RPG plugins out there. Other plugins dub “Skills” as methods which you level up, this isn’t the case with Heroes. Skills are abilities you can perform which are unique to your class. Some of our favorite skills are Fireball, Jump and Port. These are what makes Heroes unique.
