Towns Hero Section Image.jpeg

Heroes have the purpose of exploring the world and its dangerous dungeons. They will actively explore areas where the fog of war has not been revealed. There are several different types of heroes and they have different personalities: some would rather eat, sleep, idle around the town or steal your stuff than to actively explore. Additionally, some heroes have a high morale and will assist Townsfolk in need of help.

Each type requires different prerequisites to lure them into your town but there must be at least 10 townies alive. They will only show up if a tavern exists, and will eat and sleep at an open tavern room (with exceptions). They may become bored of the town and can go as they wish so you need to keep them happy. Additionally, if a tavern room is removed, the hero who lived in that room will shortly leave. If heroes want to leave but they are locked in (due to locked doors, blocked/walled off areas and removal of ladders), they will go into a rage mode and attack any friendly in sight (or break the door in the case of locked doors). In the requirements below, it mentions Floors. These are the underground Dungeon floors.

Heroes cannot be equipped with armor and weapons manually and likewise their gear cannot be unequipped. However, they may choose to equip armor and weapons from their fallen enemies or take your gear if they wish to. They have a leveling system in which they gain experience from dealing damage to enemies. When most heroes reach level 6, they gain a special skill such as summoning "Sadon" in the case of Sips, the camp maker. Some heroes can gain an additional skill when they reach a higher level. The current maximum level cap is level 50.

Heroes may be cycled by using the "H" key. This is useful for finding them especially in forested areas.

The maximum number of heroes you can acquire is dependent on the civilian population of your town. The max number of heroes is the square root of the civilian population:

  • 9 Townies -> 3 Heroes
  • 16 Townies -> 4 Heroes
  • 25 Townies -> 5 Heroes
  • 36 Townies -> 6 Heroes
  • 49 Townies -> 7 Heroes
  • 64 Townies -> 8 Heroes
  • 81 Townies -> 9 Heroes
  • 100 Townies -> 10 Heroes
  • 121 Townies -> 11 Heroes
...and so on.

Trivia
"Sips, the Campmaker" is a shoutout by the SMP team to a popular Youtube gaming commentator by the name of Sips, known for his involvement in the Yogscast, his indie games Let's Plays and his hardcore Minecraft series with Sjin. Sips is currently doing an entertaining Towns playthrough, now on his second season called Fort Fantastic. "the Campmaker" is a reference to his D&D character in episode 31 of a popular podcast called the Yogpod by the Yogscast. In this episode titled "YoGPoD 31 - Im Just Making A Camp Guys" Sips role-plays a bard named Dr. Caesar's Palace M.D. and there is a reoccurring theme in that he is completely useless and makes camps on every turn.
"Sadon" was a townie in Sips' playthrough who fell victim to a Ghost surrounding Sips' graves.
