Weekly Update

Guess who's back? That's right! It's Hiro! And boy does he have an update for you!

Two, actually. And they're both about...clothes? Well, okay. Here we go.

First off, big announcement. Do you enjoy art? Do you like stuff? Do you enjoy wearing shirts that proclaim artistically your love of stuff? Then you're gonna love our t-shirt designs! Check out the announcement here for more info!

Wanna skip reading and go right to the buying? Sure thing!

Now remember, you don't have much time to get these! A little less than a week remains, and supplies won't last forever! If you want more, want to praise the designs, or want to discuss ideas for future sales, head to this thread:

Second Update!

The venerable Dr. Tyche is kind enough to regale us with a discussion of fashion-consciousness and what it means for the aspiring costumed vigilante. Take a read here:

Then discuss it over here!

Forum Round-Up

Death is something oft dismissed in the comic book world. I mean, seriously, how many times has Jean Grey been killed? You'd think Xavier's School would have their own in-house mortician. But what does this mean in terms of game mechanics? What should happen if our heroes suffer defeat? Venture ponders this and invites comments on our forums!

Ahhh, PvP. Three simple letters that can stir feelings of excitement, contempt, and crippling anxiety. Every MMO has their own approach to PvP, some more unique than others. How could we make ours uniquer than everyone else's? Pandemonum presents an idea here:

Lastly, the multi-limbed. Truly, two arms can be limiting. How many of us haven't spent time wondering what life would be like with two, four, twelve more appendages? ...I'd have to get new shirts... What limits might this bring to the game? What challenges? Can it even be done? Discuss while I go cut new sleeves into some clothes!

Video of the Week:

Everything is better with British narration. Every. Thing.

A...female...Thor? I'm having flashbacks to Marvel Manga, here. Discuss this interesting news at this thread:

Do you like silly characters? Better yet, do you /play/ silly characters? Toss your ideas, or have a good laugh at some others brought to us by Criminus! 

Teleport! One of the most awesome powers out there (says Hiro) but so tough to do mechanics-wise. Kamikaze shares some ideas in this thread. Discuss them and add your own! 

Video of the Week!

Do you like Star Wars? Do you like Jon Stewart and/or Stephen Colbert? Do you like helping starving kids? Would you like a role in the new Star Wars movie? If you answered "YES!!!" to any or all of the above, WATCH THIS VIDEO.

Ladies and gentlemen and non-binary gendered lifeforms from across the galaxy, welcome to your (late-ish) Sunday recap

Weekly Update

As the world recovers from the Soccerball Championships, many of us remain hard at work (or hard at not-working). This week, for your reading pleasure, we give you a look into some lore, with Tales from the Underworld: One Night in Charleston!

Here's what we've been talking about this week!

City of Heroes is considered a classic game by...well, most all of us. But what, specifically, made it so special, so /fun/ for you? Empyrean kicks us off with a discussion here! 

One thing that so few games have been able to properly replicate? SG/VG Bases! What are some ideas to make them more than a place for amazing RP and talent to be shown off? Lord Nightmare shares a few ideas here:

With July 4th out of the way, many people are starting to look forward to Christmas! And who can blame them? Everyone just loves receiving gifts! But should we be able to send our special friends some electronic tokens of our effection? Er. Affection? syntaxerror37 poses such a question in this thread! 

Hiro's Video of the Week!

BuzzFeed teaches us some crazy facial facts. Time to go measure my nose... Enjoy!

A Hiro-ic Thank You

I wanted to take a moment to thank all of our active community members for being so diligent pointing out attacking NEMESIS spam-bots. It really makes our jobs a lot easier. While I'm told I don't have the power to make any promises, I'm going to disregard that and make each of you a promise! For everyone that reports a spam-bot, I, Hiro of house Antagonist, will give you one (1) FREE THIRTY (30) seconds of game time on release!!! [Ed. Hiro can't actually do this, please ignore him, he's been exposed to the sun way too much this month.] [Shadow: I blame myself actually. This is clearly the strain of managing the last week and a half without the balm of my presence]

What else could it be? Happy Birthday, America!

Forum roundup

We've been asked to try and find a way for people who missed the Kickstarter to have the chance to donate financially to the project. Is this something you'd like to see happen?

Hazard zones - do you love them or hate them? Plexius is a fan, and would like to see us include them in City of Titans. What do you think?

And Radiac wants to know if there are any symbols that will be considered 'taboo' for costumes and bases. How do you draw the line between realism and offensiveness when it comes to symbols and sigils?
