Theme

From Wildermyth Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

As your heroes participate in certain specific events, some event outcomes will modify a hero's appearance, abilities, and/or stats. An example of a common theme, also called a transformation, is Flamesoul, where one or more of the hero's limbs can be replaced with fire limbs.

A theme can modify the appearance of (one or more of) a hero's theme slots, possibly through maiming. A hero can have more than one theme (such as Flamesoul, and a pet), as long as the themes don't conflict with each other.

Theme slots

Theme modifications can include replacing the hero's head, left arm, right arm, left leg, right leg, or torso. In addition, the hero can gain wings, a tail, or a pet.

Theme skins

Some themes have cosmetic variants (which can be unlocked by completing theme-related achievements). Once unlocked, they can be chosen in the customize section in the character sheet.

Theme conflicts

A hero can have multiple themes as long as the themes do not conflict with each other.

Examples of incompatible themes would be transformations that affect the same body part/replace lost limbs. For example a hero cannot be Beartouched and Wolftouched, as the facial bear tattoo is incompatible with a wolf head. However, a hero could be Wolftouched and Spell Touched, with a wolf head and blue skin. It is also not possible for a hero to have more than one pet. (Drauven Bird is the exception to this, as it sits on a hero's shoulder).

If you recruit a legacy hero who already has a particular theme, that theme event will not occur in the campaign even if other heroes would be eligible for it. If you wish to have two party members with the same theme, wait to recruit legacy heroes until after your other hero receives the theme.
