Featured Hero #78
Name: Iron Frame
Origin: Technology
Archetype: Scrapper
Primary: Katana
Secondary: Invulnerability
Server: Union
John Drake was naturally gifted with a sword, but his heart wasn't in it. He couldn't defend himself when a wannabe-supervillain burned him with a prototype flamethrower suit. With most of his body destroyed, John was only ever going to live with a full-body prosthesis. The Empyrean Corporation designed the first Iron Frame body. Empyrean wanted him to be their pet enforcer, and Drake wasn't ready to turn villain. Fortunately, one of John's early successes was the rescue of billionaire industrialist Tony Kord. With Kord's help, the Iron Frame was born.

One Year Anniversary

So it's officially been one year now since NC dropped the bomb. I don't know how many people are still following this community, but this happened tonight and I wanted to share. <_<

The Town of Heroes

(to the tune of The Sound of Silence by Simon & Garfunkel)

Hello, Atlas, my old friend
I’ve come to camp ‘neath you again
Because the Pocket D RP’s boring
And my friends are in AE, farming
And my missions all have purple-con AVs
For the expees
Here in this town… of heroes.

In Perez Park I walked alone
Searching for more grays to pwn
Go Kill Skulz, it will be fun, they said
Dropping AOEs right on their head
When my PC chimed with a tell and a team invite
"Come join this fight."
"We need a few… more heroes."

In Oranbega, once, I saw
Ten thousand demons, maybe more
"Stay away from portals!" tanker said
Scrapper left the group and wound up dead
"Does anyone in here have a TP and a rez?
Or wakie pez?”
In this whole town… of heroes.

Heroes, Villains, Going Rogue
Missions where the things explode
"Join my ITF any day
Or we could do a Lady Grey”

And the shards, like candy pieces fell
And all was well
In the town… of heroes

And the players happily played
With the characters they’d made
'Til that day that they, no warning
Closed it down and ignored mourning
And NC said, “This game and its profits are something we don’t want no more
So there’s the door!”
And sunset… on the town… of heroes.
