The 37th Dimension
This page exists as a sort of central nexus for all of my characters. Since, in the end, regardless of any in-game connections or what server any particular character resides on... all of my characters are connected to me, seeing as I am the one who plays them (of course, only Twostripe actually knows that).
A good deal of my characters have interactions with one another or are somehow connected to one another. And though none of them can actually meet in-game since they are all connected to my one account, they do all exist in the same universe of my own creation. I don't pay attention to server in this way, as all of my characters exist in the same City of Heroes universe. As an example, several different characters are connected to Schwarzpunkt and his Mueller Corporation, though now he is a mostly defunct character warehoused on Guardian.
One could say that I have a fair bit of altoholism. Though I don't have hundreds of characters... that is probably due to my penchant for deleting, renaming and otherwise repurposing my characters over and over. If I have a character that has gone months without play, I am pretty likely to delete him, or rename him and give him a new costume in hopes that something sparks and he gets some playtime. And that method has worked for me before.
I have likely deleted almost as many characters as I have now, I think I have deleted characters as high as 25... but once they hit 32, they are pretty much safe. I don't like deleting a character that has gotten that far in its progression of powers.
Currently, I have about 42 characters. But, as one might have guessed, I already have plans to re-roll some and create some brand new ones.
One of Each to 50
One of my 'sorta' goals is to get at least one of each AT to 50. At the moment, I am nearly done with Heroes... and suprisingly less close with Villains. This should help me to prioritize which character becomes my current project character. After this goal is complete, I will have to re-evaluate my idea of having one of each powerset on my account (no idea where I stand with that right now considering recent deletions/creations).
Well, while I am going nuts making tables... I might as well really go nuts, eh?
Below is a full list of all of my current characters broken up first by server, and then further seperated into 50s and non-50s. Each character that has his own page here will be linked to it below (non-black names are links). My main character is marked with a circled star (), other significant or often played characters are marked with a diamond (), and characters that are new and may turn out to be "diamond worthy" are marked with a bullet ().
On Justice, I only play Villains and help to maintain a VG there called The Legions of Fate. All of my characters on Justice are a part of that VG, and I am in close contact with the active Super Leader of that group. I began playing on Justice after moving our VG there from Guardian, which seemed just a bit too slow on red-side for our tastes. After Hanging out on Justice for a good while and getting involved in some of the global channels, it became clear that Justice was going to be my new home server and that Infinity would begin to play second fiddle. As such, I payed to have my main badging character move to Justice where he was able to team with my significant other's main badging character, Agent Inhakos (who happened to be the Super Leader of the VG).
Above and beyond all of my other characters is Pointsphere. He is not only my main character on Justice, but the most likely character you are to find me playing at any time... not least of which is the fact that he is my main badging character.
Level 1 - 49s
On Infinity, I only play Heroes and maintain an SG there called The Strands of Fate. All of my characters on Infinity are a part of that SG, and I am the active Super Leader of that group. Infinity had been my main server since I started playing City of Heroes around the release of Issue 10. It wasn't until recently that I essentially switched focus from considering Infinity as my home, to considering Justice as my home. Mainly, this was due to my liking of Villains more than heroes, and the ability concept-wise, of my hero to transition to being a Rogue without much issue.
Level 1 - 49s
On Guardian I play both Heroes and Villains. At one time, I used Guardian as the base for the now defunct VG, The Tendrils of Fate. But, as mentioned above, it became clear to me that red-side was no where near as active on Guardian as it was blue-side. I loved the community of folks there, but it seemed just too hard, sometimes, to get together the activities I wanted to do. And so it was that the VG was dumped, and we re-located to Justice during one of the periods where Paragon Studios was offering free server transfers.
Now, Guardian has been re-purposed as the RP server for me and my group of in-game friends. We have made several themed RP teams and related SGs and VGs on Guardian (including: The PCSF and The Islanders), and play over there a fair amount. But, it is by no means a "home" server in the same way that Justice and Infinity are. Also, it has become a sort of graveyard for unplayed 50s who are then used to create the various SG/VGs for the RP characters to play in.
Level 1 - 49s
A friend of mine has played on Champion for a very long time, and has a loyal group of his friends there as well. I finally took advantage of a few free transfers and moved two of my characters there so that I can team with him on occasion. We shall see if I ever get around to playing them more than just... haphazardly.
