Featured Hero #23
Name: Riley Grimm
Origin: Natural
Archetype: Defender
Primary: Empathy
Secondary: Radiation Blast
Server: Freedom
By: [info]crantz
Riley Grimm is a linguistics major gone monster hunter gone high profile hero. All it took was her little sister dying.

Riley went to college in Salamanca and had her twin brother and little sister over visiting when things went terribly wrong. Now she's blasting green pain and healing, her sister's a ghost and her brother Ryan's turned into a dark version of her.

She'd already registered herself as a hero months before to enter hazard zones to research the Trolls and the effect of Superadine on their speech centres and as such, has been unable to change her paperwork from Natural to Magic.

There are rumours of an other-dimensional version of her in this world, a kheldian.

The Phoenix Project (Plan Z) kickstarter!

Hi folks,

Just thought I'd let you know that the kickstarter for City of Titans (formerly known as The Phoenix Project) has gone live!

It can be found at:
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/missingworldsmedia/the-phoenix-project-city-of-titans

It's only been up for a few hours, and they're already at 10% of their goal. Wootleburger!

I'm not sure how many people still read this community, but figured it was worth spreading the news anyway.

Cheers,
ZzzzSleep.

I'm excited! I really, really hope they make their goal. I'm impressed that they're still pushing forwards so strongly after a year.

Given that it's been less than 12 hours and they're just about to hit $80,000 of a targeted $320,000, I'd say they're in pretty good shape at this point.

Kicked.

I've known several of the people named as project heads for something like 20 years now, so I have a fair amount of trust that they can deliver. :)

I am definitely going to be watching this one. Unfortunately, they are running concurrently with the huge new Reaper Minis Bones II Kickstarter (if you're interested, it's here), so many gamers will be tossing their hundred bucks that way. Not trying to be a Debbie Downer here, just being real.

That being said, I like the breakdown of "where the money will go." They're being smart about rounding up for the "we need to pay this stuff first" plans. After that however, it sounds like a really small amount of money to do everything they want.

All that being said, they most likely will get at least some of my money, because...well...it's the set of Plan Z folks that I want to support.

Well, to be fair, there's almost always competing kickstarters. For instance, earlier this week I tossed $70 at a My Little Ponies-style gaming miniatures kickstarter (search on "Pewter Ponies"). And I know other people who are supporting both Bones II and Titan.

This is the best news I've heard all day/week/month/year. It was totally worth sobering up this morning.

Glad I could help!

Go to it folks. They're 8 hours and $70K in, and their reward scheme is eminently fair. I'm giving this one the BCOJ seal of approval.

Over $100K now.

pledged. having fun watching it go up. already over $130k so far!!!

Great!

Posted the link to my Facebook to promote and I'll start collecting cans, digging in couch cushions and donating plasma for "the Cause"! Or I could just take out some Skulls and donate their loot!

I'm backing at the Fly Free level, and as those of you who follow my Twitter feed (if you don't, it's the same username as this) already know, I tweeted my support with the #saveCOH hashtag and a reminder that we are heroes. This is what we do.

I'm currently at Home Sweet Home, but might bump up to Fly Free.

Well done, Missing Worlds Media! You made your goal in less than a week! Fantastic!!!

Now to see how high they can reach! I'm still amazed at the number of people that have kicked in $1000+ though....

As am I! As am I! but let's face it, the game had some celebrity backers so it was inevitable.
