Another @Pixel_Dailies competition is running today. For this competition you must create a dungeon delving hero, the kind that might appear in the roguelike genre of games. Upload your artwork to twitter and tag it with @pixel_dailies and #Hero. Only one entry per person is allowed. The competition ends at 11pm UTC Thursday. 

Thanks to @Cuddigan from Priority Interrupt there are two Steam keys for Delver up for grabs. One prize will be awarded to the best pixel art, and the second will go to a random submission. Good luck!
