City Of Heroes
..:. .: .::.:.
Featured Hero #84
Name: Tam Lyn Carter
Origin: Magic
Archetype: Defender
Primary: Dark Miasma
Secondary: Psychic Blast
Server: Justice
Named after a figure from Scottish myth, Tam teaches Japanese and linguistics at the local college when he's not out fighting crime. His interest in languages stems from a childhood spent at archaeological digs. While teaching English and studying in Japan, he found a strange artifact in an old shrine. He blacked out after picking it up, awaking in his own room. Since that day he has had a strange affinity for shadows. When he discovered his powers, he did some research. The object he picked up likely held some sort of dragon spirit captive, and the spirit has now possessed him! Usually he is able to control it, but sometimes the dragon inside starts to show through. Tam is dealing with this as best he can, and has moved from his native Maryland to Paragon City so he can help out that city's famous heroes. Originally known as "Shade," Tam's secret ID was outed early in his career when he rescued one of his students. He hopes to become a translator for visiting Japanese heroes someday.

Another lost player

Hey all, long time no post. Go figure?

I wanted to pass along news. A member of our community has passed recently. John F. Martin, or known here as FurrySaint, player on Virtue.

Hopefully he's found our other passed supers to team up with where he is now.

Take care.

really super long shot

Okay, I'm at my wit's end here. I dunno who might still even be watching for posts here, but I thought I'd give it a shot. If nothing else, maybe I can talk the hubby into going to Reddit for help or something.

Here's the thing. I just recently [finally] got the City of Heroes stuff back on my computer. Got the demorecords I have to play back with pretty much no problems...I had a few that wouldn't play, but I seem to have figured those out.

Problem: I was an idiot, and taped one of my chars from *behind*. **facepalm** I have vague memories of playing with a demorecord waaay back when, and being able to "free" the camera [you know, make it so that you can zoom around looking at other things besides your character...and could circle around your character and stuff] The thing is I don't recall for sure if it *was* a demorecord, if I did it while in-game, or what.

Everything I've come across mentioned Zloth's CoH Demo Launcher...which I don't seem to have a copy of [maybe, I still have to dig through my archive's POSSIBLE it's hidden on one] as the go-to for looking at Demos.

I guess I should ask if it's possible to do that with the demorecords at all. :P Would I need something like Zloth's launcher, or get the game to run the demorecords somehow and do it that way? Either way, I don't recall how to get the camera "free", and I can't remember where I read how to do it. :P

And if Zloth's launcher *would* do that sort of thing...does anyone have any idea where to *find* it? I've come up against the black hole of the dreaded 404 error...*sighs*. This is what I get, I suppose, for wanting to do stuff years after the game has gone away [I still miss you CoH! *hugs*]

Any help anyone can send my way would be GREATLY appreciated! ^_^

Shirts on unamee! :D

Shirt promo!

Designs are up from now thru Thursday 3/12!

Shirts are $11-16, Hoodies are $30.

men's S-5X, ladies's XS-3X, children's XS-XL

I will make my new designs available on RedBubble after the sale, and try to get some more in relatively soon. I do want to at least add Vigilante and Rogue to the mix, and get versions of all the Archetypes and possibly Origins up there, too.
I intended to take the designs down at some point, and may still, but wanted to get thru all the ATs before I took any options away. Then there was my super busy summer...

Mystery Men

Watched Mystery Men last night and it reminded me (again) so much of City and how you could come up with any name, costume and character concept and it was all good.

Shirts again upcoming on Unamee

Hey guys, a head's up (if you're like me and check LJ once a week now...sadface), my assorted CoX shirts will be appearing on again starting Thursday this week, running thru Wednesday next. I have four new designs in addition to the three 5-character shirts, Statesman and Ghost Widow. Haven't gotten the final word on shirt colors yet, but the designs are: Hero (blue star), Villain (black spider on red), the Weekend Hamidon, and Mother Mayhem.

Unamee shirts are $11-16 and also will be offering hoodies for $30 this time around.

Purpled Out Warshade

Does anyone remember the quote about "purpled out warshade" and possibly also "casual player"?

I can't remember quite how it went, and it's now relevant in a thread on the Neverwinter forum. :P

Thanks in advance!

Having my doubts

Before I get started, I want to make it clear that I'm very happy for the news involving the City of Heroes IP. Though talks are still in progress, if the game itself does come back in a sort of maintenance mode, it will be exactly what everyone was asking for.

But (personal thoughts ahead)Collapse )
