Introduction

I have been using this Wiki site since almost as soon as I began playing City of Heroes. And never really thought twice about the vast amount of time and work that has gone into making this fantastic resource. Then, on a whim, I happened to notice a typographical error and signed in to the Wiki for the first time to correct it. Then, for whatever reason, I did almost nothing with the Wiki for a good long while. And, just like that, I picked it up again, and have been doing a lot of little odds and ends around the site since then: uploading badge images, correcting formatting, creating Enemy Group pages, but most of all, I have been learning! I love using the Wiki, and I love being able to say that I made this thing, or that template. It has been rather rewarding so far, and I hope for that to continue. I have even gone so far as to incorporate my love of Photoshop into the creation of images for use with the {{Enemy Link}} template so that we could finally get rid of the horridly unhelpful V badge BattleDomeBadge.png.

Here's hoping that my continued contributions serve to help the community of City of Heroes to find their information faster and more accurately than they did before.

About Me

In-Game

I have been subscribed to City of Heroes since just after the release of Issue 10 (September of 2007). However, I began my Trial of the game sometime after the release of Issue 9. I began playing on a Controller (Wylde-Fire at the time) on Infinity Server, and have been hooked ever since. I have expanded to playing on Justice, Guardian and most recently Exalted as well. Wylde-Fire has since gone Rogue, and now resides on Justice as Pointsphere, my resident Badging character.

I enjoy running Task/Strike Forces with my in-game friends, we have formed several different themed RP teams as well. But, what I enjoy most of all about this game, is the creation of the character itself, and how it develops more and more flavor as the levels roll by. I can spend hours upon hours creating costumes, then still more hours trying to come up with a perfect name (a process I usually enjoy). And then of course there is badging! I love earning any and all badges in the game, and have a good deal of them on Pointsphere... 1270, no 1328, well, lots and counting!

Real Life

Anything you want to know? Well, you should get to know me in-game and you can find out there, because I ain't telling here. Smilies tongue.gif

Symbol

The symbol at the top of the page incorporates the avatar I use on the official City of Heroes forums with a tribal design of my own making. The avatar image itself is an image inspired by the propaganda-like logo representing the mostly evil Channcellor in the movie 9. Of course, that particular logo is itself inspired by socialitst/communist iconography used on flags and other propoganda (which is regrettable in retrospect). In my case, I was taken by the simple shape and lines, and bold use of my favorite colors. From the original Chancellor image, I altered it to resemble two back-to-back 3s in black, and two front-to-front 7s in white on the bottom around the arrowhead. This symbol has served as an internet representation of me for over two years now.

Projects

Current

  • Take a look at my projects page for the stuff I am currently working on.

Future

  • I am most interested in graphic-related updates or visual consistency (or page design) issues on the Wiki. I have a background working with Newspaper layout, and thoroughly enjoy messing around in Photoshop. So, if you notice anything that fits those criteria, feel free to suggest it to me on my talk page.

Character List

I have a bunch of characters, somewhere around 40 or so at last count, but always a few more every new Issue. My goal is to have one of each powerset in use across my account with as few repeats as is possible (i.e. create a Cold Domination Defender, but then avoid using that set when I create an Ice Controller). I have a page at CIT where one could peruse them if one so wished (there is a link in my Userboxes above).

I am also in the process of creating a page discussing each of my characters in a bit more depth than just their badges over on my Ouroboros Portal page (also linked to in my Userbox). My user page there lists all of my characters, and will then link to each character that has a page of his own.
