Everything ‘normal’ in our game calendar was either cancelled or not scheduled, due to either weather or Easter, so there was a lot of CoH going on: * Positron TF with an alt on Friday night (since my regular game fell through) in which I got to work with Lee’s peacebringer, which I hadn’t before. […]
As noted here, it was a pretty active weekend on CoH. Hang Time dinged 33, as did Shock about a day later. Hyperthermian dinged 11, Rose hit 19, and Strat dinged both 20 and 21. All of which occured on Friday and Saturday, actually. Not a lot going on on Sunday. The murder plot thing […]
Here are some of my personal WOOHOOS and BOOS: WOOHOO o Improved Max Stealth capability (High stealthy powers like Superior Invisibility can now better protect against foes with high Perception, like Snipers). o Villains can now knock you back, instead of just knocking you down. (cool) o Increased the Damage buff of Leadership/Assault and Vengeance […]
Defender Changes in Issue 4. UPDATE: ALL Changes in Issue 4.
A great example of an HQ extended conflict: Climbing a Wall. Had our first couple extended conflicts in the HQ game on Friday: worked both better and worse I’d expected. More later.
Related to the “Who killed Freedom Girl Stateswoman” story: The Liberty Song: Battle for Axis Earth — a big-as-hell, all hands on deck, murder investigation. And guess who’s GMing the thing?

Alliance of Champions :: Phalanxers murdered, Stateswoman among them A big old ‘what the hell’. UPDATE: Read HERE, at least down to the Strategist post, if you want to find out how to be involved in the investigation of what’s going on.
Certain things that always seem to happen with me and multi-player online games: 1. I make a wise-cracking, relatively-fragile, power-throwing character that I really enjoy playing. 2. I make a more serious, older, “uncle” character who can take a pounding. 3. The wise-ass character joins a group of some kind. 4. Very shortly thereafter, the […]
Alliance of Champions :: Build help — very very very useful suggestions on approaching the Invulnerability Tanker set. Between Gilly, Tanker-belle, and Shadow-cat, this will be darn useful info to have.
Updated the wiki page on CoH with my and Jackie’s characters. Also, because I wanted to mention it: Dave’s Blog of Heroes.

Strategist: Old Man’s War, Young Man’s Game. Fun.
Where are all the good tanks dead? In the heart, or in the head? In the past week of teaming up to level him from 10-20 I have teamed up with absolute worst tankers in my year of playing CoH. None of them had taunt and I usually let that slide if the tanker knows […]

Looking for a supergroup on City of Heroes? Enjoy playing your character … in character? Want a little roleplay to go with Evil Smashing? On Champion server, I cannot recommend the Alliance of Champions enough. This is a ‘macro-supergroup’ of allied roleplaying Super Groups, all under one banner. The Alliance includes: 1. The Freedom Phalanx: […]
Dave and Stan and Avocet have been having problems with bad teams on CoH lately, it sounds like. CoH is a very different game solo, in small teams, or in large teams. Once you are in a large team, the game dynamic really changes. The controller shines, the tanker has a role. This is what […]

Over here, here, Shawn wrote: How do you prep and run so many different games? I’m blown away by planning & running one game every other week or so! I mean, my group seems to have fun (they keep coming back, which I guess is a good sign), but I’m so fatigued. And that’s, as […]
Guide to gaining XP and/or getting rid of Debt on CoH: So, you’re sick of being stuck down at at a level you don’t have to take both shoes off to count to, and you want to be up there playing with the big boys. Or, conversely, you’ve just come off of a bad Task […]
I’m currently running an HQ game for my die-hard DnD group on the alternate Fridays from the regular game. Here’s what happened in the most recent play session (already about a month ago, due to scheduling problems and holiday crap). In short, success. Go to here for the list of characters, the player briefing, et […]

XianQuan, session 2 is up. Thoughts below.
Finally, I wanted to give public thanks to Lee for sticking with me through Hang Time’s first Arch Villain storyline — he was especially helpful while HT was suffering from the Vazhilok wasting disease… though the pointing and the laughing didn’t exactly add to his Good Samaritan act. End result: we saved the city from […]
“I wanna go to the crappy town where *I’m* a hero.” — Wash, Firefly So I doubt this will be a regular thing, but I wanted to write down stuff that’s happened on CoH over the last couple days, so I can remember when and where later. I’ve been trying to focus more on playing […]
