I really miss playing CoH/CoV   

I really miss my tank Golden Power Girl and the rest of them.   However,  my favorite class was the Peacebringer.  Oh heck I liked them all.   The missions,  hours spent leveling up to level 50 over and over.   It was a game could never get tired of.    I remember all those that would run around with the eden top and bikini bottom cause they attach the nude patch, lol.    Oh an best of all going to tailors was fun.   

Anyways if you have room still, I am interested.

If freeform would deter anyone, I can certainly withdraw my preference for it and we can go with Xeno's proposed simple dice resolution system.

I'm seeing a lot of interest, and that makes me happy.

I'm seeing a disturbing lack of characters, and that makes me sad.

I never mentioned you by name, Sinestra :D I may, but it's in the air now. That would mean I'd have to do something special for one of the Heroes here. But yea! All you guys who are interested, feel free to grab a character sheet, fill that beast out and get rolling.

So far, we're at 2 Villains at 1 Hero. I'm not saying it needs to be even, but that's where we're at.

Oh. My. God. You have no idea of how much I love and miss City of Heroes! My favorite MMO of all time. One of my favorite games of all time! So many fond memories! I want in on this (work schedule permitting)! I NEED in on this! (Work schedule. Please be kind) If I'm free enough to join before this begins, I'd love to do so as a Dominator, Blaster (read; Blapper), or Brute/Scrapper.

I was a huge fan of playing as Rogues, though. My main for a long time was a Praetorian cop, turned Loyalist, turned Rogue/Glory-Hounding Celebrity. Kinetic Melee/Electric Aura... Ah, those were the days.

Well, we're in Open Recruitment at the moment, so if it turns out that work is kind to you, We'd be more then happy to have you! We're sitting at a 2 Heroes to 3 Villians split at the moment, so I'm not putting restrictions on who can be what. Hope you can join us, Lunaris.

How are you with Rogues/Vigilantes? Also, is this an alternate timeline? Before the servers went down, a lot went down with the Freedom Phalanx...

Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide
Statesman and Sister Psyche were killed in the Signature Story Arc missions. I remember doing them with a few of my characters.

Ah. Well. Good to know.

It'll be a slightly AU, as if those arcs didn't happen. I have a recap of what happened to change Paragon's point of view a bit farther up the thread. I'll be writing more in regards to the Day of Flame and the aftermath later.

As stated earlier, Rogues and Vigilantes, because they are not aligned with the Freedom Phalanx, are considered Villains. Recluse sees them as 'Disposable Assets'. If you'd like, we can maybe come to an agreement on how to work Rogues and Vigilantes.

I think it's a fair assumption that all events on the live servers (minus the final few hours of mass tentacle molestation and rampant multi-named-character beatdowns, which I thankfully have videos of) are canon as of this game... just that when the servers went down, according to this game, the Rikti Wall came down, betrayals happened, Order 66, Dogs and Cats Living Together, etc etc.

Edit: Well nevermind! Lol :)

I think my last RP character in City of was a former Sky Raider (I even made a convincing replica of the NPC costume for her!) who wound up stealing and modifying their tech before becoming a mercenary (with a heart of gold...much as she hated to admit it). Sassy and powerful with a wicked sense of humor...though she had some serious trust issues. I'd have to seriously think about how her and some of my other "gray" characters would fare in your new vision of Paragon.

How are you on things Praetorian?

@Sinestra: DID YOU BETRAY US THAT DAY?! Are you: Betrayer? =P

Thank you very much for sharing this, Sinestra. It actually made me cry.

More updates on Paragon' s current ate after some news. Minus the last few arcs where that happened, you're right. Basically all hell breaks loose.

Day of Flame Timeline:

5:42 AM: The heroes Total Brollicaust and Amber Slash inform the Freedom Phalanx of incoming Arachnos Helicopters off Paragon's coast.

6:00 AM: Statesman confirms sightings.

6:11 AM: Shodan the Betrayer deactivated the Mediporter system city-wide and the Rikti War Walls simultaneously, creating a kill-zone inside the ruins of Galaxy City, which spreads to the whole city.

6:20: First contact with Arachnos Forces. Rumor holds a powerful Villain, Sailor Apocalypse, leads the charge.

7:00 AM: Reports of deaths on both sides flood in.

7:43 AM: Shodan's last transmission is traced to an IT company in Grandville.

9:10 AM: Full-Scale combat begins on the streets.

12:32 PM: First Major Casualty, Black Scorpion is reported by Total Brollicaust.

1:52 PM: Captain Mako is killed by Amber Slash.

3:11 PM: Fighting escalates.

5:22 PM: Sirroco imbibed water from the Well of the Furies, in an attempt to take the city for himself. Under orders from Recluse, he is executed by a top Arachnos agent (Presumed Sailor Apocalypse).

5:24 PM: Unable to resist the assault, Independece Port falls.

6:44 PM: Sailor Apocalypse and Statesman begin conflict.

7:32 PM: Statesman beats Sailor Apocalypse. Hard rock Hallelujah, with the assistance  of other Arachnos Agents, set off 5 Rikti Warheads inside Paragon. Atlas Park, Talos Island, Independence Port and Skyway City are confirmed destroyed.

7:39 PM: Freedom Phalanx forced into Retreat. Paragon City splits into east and west. As Paragon burns, the surviving member  of the Freedom Phalanx dub the day "The Day Of Flame".

See I came into CoH late... well, with the release of City of Villains (because screw playing a hero), and even then when I joined it was only with my husband and friends who were working for a gaming-site at the time. I was a veteran WoW player and podcaster at the time, and I will be damned if CoV/H didn't make me question everything I thought WoW was awesome at...

And my gawd... the character creator... I don't think anything will ever eclipse it.

SPEAKING OF! Did you know, with adding a line of code to the runline of your old CoH executable, you can launch the game and open the character creator and make characters, you just can't log in? But you can use the "Save Outfit" thing to save your creations? :)

That's how my friends got me into it, waaaay back, even before CoV was released (though, CoV was when I *really* got into it). I watched them play it, but wasn't really interested at all. But then they told me to go ahead and try out the character creator. MMOs weren't my thing before I sat down to try out something I'd be sure to discard. I'd been playing for 3 or 4 hours (2 of which were spent designing my charrie) before they came back and smirked knowingly. I probably said something along the lines of, "THIS DOESN'T MEAN ANYTHING!"

Unfortunately, I uninstalled CoH after the Sunset. T_T As much as I miss the character creator, I no longer have the install for it. I do have the old old korean standalone creator, though! It's...a very old, ancient version but I'll take what I can get. XD

This makes me very sad.. I miss playing my uber SS/Invuln Tanker (Valerie Dobson). As well as my Broadsword/Regen Speedster, Callie.

I figure both of them wouldn't have survived the day of flame. I figure a maxed optimized tanker like Val would have piled bodies very very deep before she went down.. and Callie was all about dashing hits with her HUGE blade

the video makes me very sad too.

(and yeah.. I played from the six month mark on) I miss being able to tank bosses 10 levels higher than me when optimization hit. (Had to settle for 3 to 5 levels higher)

You can still get the client download off torrents and some sites. Unlocks everything to use too. :)

When things were winding down, myself and many members of the coalition of villain-groups I was allied with (the way things works I ended up being the sole survivor and leader of CoV's once largest Villain Group... our base was literally as large as the system allowed, with practically unlimited funding to do whatever I pleased, so I just... played. Lol) and we would write stories about the final days and one of the stories was that Sharessa rushed to construct a second lay-line tap (or whatever it was exactly, but it was the Arcane Base's largest possible power generator, could literally run as much as you could throw at it and more), finishing it just as the apocolype hit and using the power to basically cause the "Estate" (the base I owned) to become it's own floating island, shielded from the destruction around it and floating off interdimensionally, constantly trying to outrun the end of all things by hopping to more and more dimensions...

In theory it was going to be this forum-RP-hub thing idea for us, we'd hop to a new "Dimension" (re: New MMO) and resume playing but fitting into the world at large, but then coming back to RP as our CoH selves in this dimensional hopping island estate thing... but it never really panned out. Most of us went to SWTOR and the whole idea got forgotten.
