Hey folks. My first time posting here and darn near my first time posting on LiveJournal in general. If this isn't a good place for this kind of post, smack me around and I'll fold like ricepaper.
I've been playing CoH since my wife (whom I haven't seen face to face since :) got it for me at Christmas, and have a number of characters I like, but I've settled on my main for the time being and I'm looking for some opportunities to meet folks who enjoy some in character roleplaying during their carnage.Name:
Hang Time (a.k.a. Jason Marks)Origin:
Jason Marks was a normal guy, until the day he made a pizza delivery to the Orion Labs research facility in Steel Canyon. Put simply, he was left waiting on the guy who'd ordered the anchovies and jalapenos for too long and started poke at things in the room.
Things that one ought not poke at.
There was a flash, an explosion, and something later referred to as a 'containment breach'. After the smoke cleared, Orion agreed not to sue Jason... if Jason returned the favor. He didn't tell them about the tingling in his fingers.
He still hasn't, or about how he spends his days since quiting Paragon Pizza Pie, but he's starting to think they already know.Personality Traits:
Hang Time is an easy-going, wise-cracking guy who probably could have lived his life in relative peace, working two jobs as a bike courier and pizza delivery driver in between trips down to the beach. (In this alternate, 'normal' history, he would have eventually been killed during a convenience store robbery when he tried to get an amped-up Hellion to chill. out.) That isn't how things worked out, though, and Hang Time has intertwined his new sense of responsibility with the natural joy that comes from being one of the Good Guys (who can FLY! Sweet!).Powers:
The accident at Orion Labs invested in Jason the ability to manipulate and convert raw energy in a number of ways.In-Game Archetype:
Energy/Energy Blaster (with bits of the Flight, Stamina & Speed pools, thus far)In-Game Powers:
Lots of things that make Vazhilok go boom (just finished the Doctor V arch-villain mission last night). FLIGHT! Looking at adding things in the future (like healing touch) that fit with the energy manipulation idea.Play Schedule:
I'm on a little bit most any day -- more on the weekends (usually *with* my wife, all joking aside), either as Hang Time or one of my other characters (there's just so many I enjoy playing).Finally, a few pix
Here, we convinced Hang Time to recreate the mysterious events that led up to the manifestation of his powers.
Here... we're really not sure what happened. It looks like he backed into a ... well, something labeled "Collider" while he was fighting Clockwork. He backs into or pokes dangerous things a lot.
