The above link is my Flipboard magazine -- a currated collection of articles, tweets, even videos about console gaming, MMOs & DragonCon.  Over 2000 viewers and growing.


History: This blog is the third incarnation, and started as a paper RPG & desktop gaming blog.  After starting the MMO City of Heroes days after its launch in 2004,  It developed into one dedicated to that MMO, as it remained for nearly eight years. On November 30, 2012 that MMO was shut down by the company NCSoft despite an outpouring of fan support and community outrage.  Starting In December 2012, I'm going to be opening up the focus of the blog to cover ANYTHING gaming I'm playing, be it PC, XBox 360, iPad, Dragon*Con, etc.

That being said, their will be images from various games posted on this blog.  No claim here is made to the games, and no intent to infringe on any copyrights are inferred.   Copyrights are property of the respective companies.

Bio - Ye Olde Beefeater

Suggested by the Staff weapon, this one was fun while it lasted.


Bio - Crafty Fox

This one was one of my more innovative characters.   A pistol defender with a gadget tendancy.  I'd seen someone with a mask similar and it gave me ideas.  Going a riding outfit was all my idea.  Combining the two did grab a lot of attention from people.  I did get a couple covers for this guy ...


Bio - Killer-Whale

I made this using a combination of the new water powers and Sonic abilities.  It was a fun combo, but I think several people took me for another Killer Whale on Virtue -- right to the end.


Bio - Kid Combo

One of my supergroups was playing with a teen variant group -- I made this character for it back in July or August.  Of course after the Labor Day annoucement of the shut down, that group idea fell through as most activity seemed to slack off.    He was my last attempt at a kinetic melee character.


Bio - Starmax

This was a remake of a character that was the FIRST I ever made a cover of. Probably my third attempt at a power-armor style character in City at the time.  Kind of a derivative of my first ever character back on the Infinity server -- Omnitron.


Bio -- Sir Britainic

Sir Britainic was one of my few sword & shield toons.  I had some good luck with him, and he had several looks.  Like my dual blade characters, he was ideal for doing comic covers.


Bio -- Flagborn

Flagborn was my first toon to reach 50.   I always enjoyed playing him, and got lots of costume mentions and a few contest wins.   Its ironic.   I made him for the All-Stars group originally and had a stripped top with blue bottoms and before they let me in one of the leaders said they didn't like they initial costume.   The second costume was close to what I had till the end.  Someone still didn't like it, but let me in.  The costume grew on people it seems.   The original one had striped legs that weren't balanced until they came out with the Fat Stripe costume selection. That allowed for a balanced Red/White striping on the lower half.    I've tried recreating the costume in Champions, but without the stary eyes, it doesn't feel the same.

Sorry for the rear character shot here...
