This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
The message boards have been upgraded. Please log in to your existing account by clicking here. It will ask twice, so that it can properly update your password and login information. If it has trouble recognizing your password, click the 'Forgot your password?' link to reset it with a new password sent to your email address on file.

City of Heroes

As an old City of Heroes player, I'm doing my bit to spread the word. So here's the least drama version of what's up: A group of fans have brought City of Heroes back on a private server that is open to logins. If you're interested in playing, check out the document link below for instructions on how to get the game client, get an account set up, and get in and start playing:

Being a fan project, there's plenty of drama to be had, and almost certainly this drama is going to lead to what's left of the player base splitting up and going to servers run by the fans of their choice. But, for now, and for the first time in seven years, there's a place open for play.

Been playing it now for about a week. they just moved the servers from the EU to Canada and things are running quite smoothly. Its amazing how the game looks especially compared to Champions which effectively sat on their butts for the last few years when they could have been doing so much more.

Thanks - I've just sent a couple of the players in my group a link. They used to love City of Heroes back in the day.

Was all over this on day 1. Still my favorite MMO.
