Since its inception, the Hero Corps has been dedicated to providing heroes the resources they need to create a better tomorrow. ™
Part of this ongoing task is connecting the various great heroes of this fair city with the tasks that need doing, and that's exactly what we intend to do in our next Information Exchange!
What: The Information Exchange is our monthly event where we do lore-friendly AE missions, made by the community, with the community! The intention of this event is to be a friendly, open roleplay experience! If you wish to interact with your fellow heroes in some mission-based RP, now's the time! If you want to see what all your fellow community members have been able to create with the Architect system, now's the time! Or, perhaps if you have a mission you'd like the whole world to see and get a guaranteed audience... Now is the time!
When: August 1st at 6 PM EST/5 PM Central/3 PM PST!
Where: Kallisti Wharf by the Hero Corps field analyst! You can access Kallisti Wharf through any train station if you're a hero, or through the Smuggler's Submarine if you're a villain. If you're at least level 40, you can also use the LFG system to queue up solo for Market Crash, which will drop you very close to where the event takes place. (You don't have to actually do Market Crash if you use this method.)
What We Need From You: If you have an AE mission or arc you would like promoted, please directly message me either in game or through discord with the name of the mission, name of the contact, primary mission enemy group, and the location it takes place in. Otherwise, all we ask is that you feel free to show up and have a good time.

My name is Shadeknight / @Shadeknight and I am the administrator behind the City of Roleplay discord ( Found here: https://discord.gg/DZENfu8 ) and have been working up an idea in my head of a recruitment faire like the old times. Admittedly, it was meant to happen sooner but I did not want to step on any toes (See: The SG Recruitment Faire hosted by the Dawn Patrol in March.) so I did not go for it until recently. The idea behind this recruitment faire is that it allows supergroups (MOSTLY Roleplay Supergroups - that is the target audience) to get their names out there and interact. These interactions could lead to co-operative efforts during story lines or simply new friendships! I personally believe in working towards creating a shared universe together, but that's a bit ambitious I know. For now, I can and will settle on a recruitment faire so groups can get their names out there!
However,, I don't want to just do a Recruitment Faire as it is! I'm all about giving back to the community through trivia & Costume Contests. In the vein of celebrating comic books & comic book universes as well. You can expect, with any luck, a bunch of trivia surrounding Marvel & DC + City of Heroes. You can also expect to see costume contests focused around heroes, villains, and themes that fit those. The idea here to bring out the greats of the comic book universes & Superhero/Super villain antics. These range from The Ages (Bronze, Silver, Golden) to general origin/type theme groups, and more! Those details are still being hashed out on finalizing what contests we're holding exactly.
Now onto the other details!
WHERE: Kallisti Wharf, Statesman Plaza
WHEN: August 29th, 2020 @ 6PM EST (5PM CENTRAL)
WHAT: A RP-SG/VG recruitment faire with costume contests & trivia alike!
PRIZES: 2.5B+ million Influence / Full Set of Ragnarok / Full Set of Apocalypse / Full Set of Hecatomb
HOSTS: Shadeknight (@Shadeknight), ???
COSTUME CONTEST THEMES
TIME: 8PM EST & 9PM EST PRIZE: Influence
The Ages (Bronze/Silver/Gold)
Overall / Best Costume (To the Judge's tastes!)
TIME: ALL THROUGH THE EVENT PRIZE: Ragnarok / Apocalypse / Other IOs
All things Marvel!
All things DC!
City of Heroes & City of Heroes Lore/Story

The Shadow Shard is a strange and dangerous place. Firebase Zulu is the "foot in the door" of Primal Earth's Portal Corp in this bizarre dimension. Some of the most disciplined soldiers and brilliant minds of Primal Earth have stepped through the transdimensional portals and set up camp here.
Note: The Shadow Shard is a Level 45+ series of Zones, but western fortress of Firebase Zulu should be free from any enemies.
This event begins 08/27/20 and repeats every 25 days forever
Lord Recluse's tower in Grandville is quite the imposing sight. In a bold statement of the despotic leader's confidence, the tower is even open to the general public as an administrative building, and Recluse is even available should anyone seek an audiance with the de facto leader of Arachnos. Come! See the splendour of Grandville from the (surprisingly) safest place there: Arachnos Headquarters.
Note: Grandville is a level 40+ zone, but the interior of the Grandville Tower should be free from any enemies.
This event begins 08/28/20 and repeats every 25 days forever
In a remote mountain pass of Japan lies the little fortress. The mysterious locale is rumoured to house ancient secrets related to powerful martial techniques, coveted by many, but offered only to those who are pure of heart. It's also quite pleasant and serene as a tourist location! Please respect the "No Shouting" restriction and remember to be polite, lest the masters of the keep be forced to act.
In a world full of Heroes and Villains performing epic accomplishments, sometimes it's the little people who have to get their hands dirty and handle the smaller problems.
The Amoral Hearts roleplay campaign is an on-going, weekly series of sessions focusing on street-level rogues living and operating in the Etoile Isles. Not Destined Ones by any measure, these player-characters are your typical freelance "problem solvers." Inspired by the likes of Shadowrun and other tabletop roleplaying games, Amoral Hearts has a heavy focus on non-violent conflict resolution, performed through the Rising Pinnacles in-game test resolving mechanic (see link above).
Players interested in becoming involved weekly would be interviewed for compatibility with the overall themes and tone of the campaign, and then their character(s) would be interviewed in-character with the "job fixer."
Players interested in providing supporting roles as "NPCs" or antagonists may also contact the player organizing this campaign.
Please feel free to reach out to @VileTerror in-game for more details or to explore opportunities to participate.
Takes place on Everlasting. 8pm Eastern.
NOTE: Decidedly -not- "comic booky," this campaign borrows from a variety of media for inspiration.
This event begins 07/10/20 and repeats every week on Thursday forever
I hold weekly Rikti mothership raids every Thursday evening (with the exception of holidays) on the Excelsior server, at 8:30 P.M. ET/5:30 P.M. PT. We will meet in Pocket D, and begin forming the league fifteen minutes in advance. You must be level 35+ and have the Member of Vanguard badge to participate.
When the Rikti mothership raid begins, we will start with Pylon 11, going in a roughly clockwise formation. When Pylon 1 is destroyed and the Rikti mothership's shield drops, we will stay at the Pylon 1 location and buff up. Once buffed up, one or two people from every team will plant a bomb on the mothership, and everyone else will head directly to the bowl. Once the Rikti mothership raid is over, we'll begin the Rikti dropship hunt.
For more information on the instanced Rikti mothership raid trial, see here.

The Blackspire Correctional Facility, or just "The Spire," is a privately owned and operated prison that sits on a small islet of volcanic rock 2 miles off the coast of Paragon. Most, if not all of the Spire’s facilities are found underground. While the buildings topside have some rooms and facilities to allow for the cadre of guards and administrative staff to do their work and welcome new arrivals, the rest of the prison is actually spread out over half a mile straight down.

The wonderful Estrada Carma, situated in the Atlantic Ocean is a haven for retired villains and ne'er-do-wells with cash to burn. The gothic architecture is accented by some more modern luxury buildings, with an assortment of cafes, restaurants, and public spaces to engage in polite conversation with other refined individuals.
This event begins 08/06/20 and repeats every 25 days forever
A blast from the past, Galaxy City's Gemini Park was destroyed during the Second Shivan Invasion around 2012, but the City lives on through the Powers of Time Travel! As a means of getting away from the stress and horror of the everyday pains of heroing in Paragon City, sometimes it's nice just to travel back to a simpler time and enjoy the park. Well, after shooing the Vahzilok and gangers away, at least.
Access to Echo: Galaxy City is available through Base Telepads and through Ouroboros' rear portal. Gemini Park is situated in the south-east corner of the Zone.
Note: Enemies in Gemini Park are approximately Level 5.

The neighbourhood of New Haven in Cap au Diable may be small, but it is affluent, containing the Cap au Diable University, the Langston Corp building, and the home of the WSPDR news network, as well as one of the Vanguard Outposts in the Etoile Isles. While Goldbrickers and Arachnos are known to harass people in the area, it is relatively peaceful for the Isles overall. That is, at least, until the rare appearance of the mysterious Deathsurge Monster. All the same, the gazebo (location -960, 6, 1080) found along the eastern coast of New Haven tends to be far enough away from danger that people can sometimes meet there unaccosted.
Note: Cap au Diable's New Haven neighbourhood has enemies ranging from Level 15 to 20.
This event begins 08/08/20 and repeats every 25 days forever
Situated just West of Founders' Falls, this neighbourhood is a pleasant urban environment with family housing, apartments, and various stores and services. The Beans and Worms coffee shop has long stood as a community centre in the area, and a noodle restaurant, karaoke bar, and a (shh, secret!) magic shop all add to the local flavour. Peaceful and serene, the neighbourhood has obviously prospered under the watchful eyes of Paragon City's heroes!
This event begins 08/10/20 and repeats every 25 days forever
Take a glimpse into the maddening secrets of the OOZE chamber. This is where S.E.W.E.R, the criminal activities cabal of ToxxCo, pursues its sinister biological engineering agendas. In other words; it's the 'mad science' department of the Unofficial Roleplay Sewer.
This event begins 08/11/20 and repeats every 25 days forever
Cyrus Oliver Thompson was a retired hero from Kings Row who came out of retirement one last time to help the Freedom Phalanx save the City, and it cost him his life. After his heroic sacrifice, a memorial statue was built to honour him in the place that he frequently sat to feed the pigeons during his twilight years. Serving as an inspiration for many, Cyrus' memorial makes an excellent place for heroes, law enforcement, and civilians alike to come together to celebrate the lives of those who serve the people.
Note: Kings Row has enemies ranging from Level 5 to 15.
This event begins 08/12/20 and repeats every 25 days forever
The Arena District of Port Oakes is probably the safest place to be in this densely-populated island, under the watchful eyes of Arachnos, the most severe criminal activity tends to be loitering by the homeless, brawls by the Marcones and Hellions, and the occasion break-in. All things considered, that makes this a positively AAA neighbourhood as far as most residents of the Etoile Isles are concerned. The frequency of street-meat vendors in the area only helps cement the positive reputation the Arena District holds.
Note: Port Oakes' Arena District has enemies of approximately Level 5 to 10.
This event begins 08/13/20 and repeats every 25 days forever
Caffeinated Crusaders, Paragon City's exclusive coffee chain, has several locations throughout the city, with this newest one in the south-west of the Kallisti Wharf neighbourhood.

The Sanctum of Shadows is an island which exists outside of our physical realm, in plane known as The Midnight Sea, off beyond the Far Horizons. Essentially an old Oranbegan's "lake house" retreat, it is traditionally kept in a state of perpetual, peaceful darkness. However, lately the Sanctum's pavilions and surrounding islands have been lit up like a birthday cake with torch- and candle-light. Flowers have started to bloom and garlands of roses have appeared. Even the Karnaim, the magi's Skybound warship, has found herself decked out for a celebration.
This event begins 08/15/20 and repeats every 25 days forever
The Revelatory Prestige Academy of the Etoile Isles, situated on St. Martial, is an idyllic campus for higher learning. Students are carefully chosen, and heavy tuition fees keeps the general rabble out. A team of trained security personnel are at the beck-and-call of faculty, staff, and students alike. With support from Arachnos, the academy also boasts a large turn-over rate of graduate students enlisting within the Arachnos command structure, and even the Arbiters Corps.
This event begins 08/16/20 and repeats every 25 days forever
Salamanca had been a very popular vacation point and maintained a university campus for many years, but the invasion of monsters put an end to the tourist trade and seriously limited the use of the school. The Paragon City Monorail still takes passengers here, even though the town is filled to the brim with supernatural beings. Additionally, many heroes with innate magical abilities often find the ley lines in this area to be quite potent and even sometimes beneficial.
Note: Croatoa has enemies ranging from Level 25 to 35.
This event begins 07/07/20 and repeats every month forever
Tanker Tuesday is in event where tankers gather in Kings Row near the Independence Port exit to organize all-tanker teams that run task forces, missions, and other content. Start trime is 9 PM Eastern time, and usually riuns 2 hours.

The Golden Giza is an opulent hotel and casino, owned by the (in)famous Johnny Sonata. His staff are some of the most skilled in the Rogue Isles, as money is no object to a man as wealthy as he. The casino's doors are open to the public and even the Isle's notorious villains are allowed inside . . . assuming they obey the rules. From the dance floor of Jezebel Jones (location -1880, -160, 1945), to the Slot Machine Central Chamber (location -1925, -160, 2350), and from the VIP sections of Basse Croupier and Hard Luck (location -2095, -160, 2175), to the office of Johnny Sonata himself (location -1700, -160, 2115); the Golden Giza has quite a bit to offer for someone looking to place a wager or throw a party!
Note: St. Martial is a level 30+ Zone, but fortunately the Golden Giza is a safe neighbourhood.

The First Rikti Invasion was a war which shook the Primal World in a profound way. While Paragon City took the worst of it, and has since received the most investment in terms of repairs and recovery, there are still places throughout the world which bear the scars from that terrible conflict. The Omega District is one such area, so named for it once housed the headquarters of Omega Industries. Repairs to the area have been exceptionally slow due to a persistent and pervasive fog. Some say that the underground facilities of Omega Industries are still operational, and even that they're the source of the fog.
This event begins 08/20/20 and repeats every 25 days forever
A group of Freakshow goons took over and blocked off an industrial section of Baumton and turned it into a ridiculous hub of drug-fuelled partying. Its main attraction, "Freak Town," used to be a chemical warehouse. That is, until the Freakshow associate known as "Gas Kid" helped the Freaks turn it into a veritable chem mecca. The club has everything that a villainous psychonaut could ever want: Superadine, Excelsior, and Rage are on tap for any paying customers to indulge upon to their hearts desire. Chemical concoctions of all types are available at the various chem-bars throughout the club, including many addictive ones that keep the customers coming to dance night after chaotic night. Just stay away from the Freaks' chemical megamachine in the back - the fumes are NOT free, and the bouncer may throw you out if they catch you back there sucking in steam. An indoor and outdoor stage blare out a cacophony of Industrial music at all hours, and host any performers who are fine with entertaining drug-addled criminals. Frights, bright lights, fights, and long nights are in store for any customers looking for a good, and weird, time. Mohawks are not required, but they are promoted.

The Drenched Donuts Shop was one of the first buildings constructed in the New Overbrook neighbourhood when redevelopment of the "Faultline" disaster site began. Boasting the "Best doughnuts in all of Paragon City!" ™ the site is a popular location for the members of Paragon's Police Department to frequent. Additionally, many heroes and meta-powered individuals have been witnessed flying or leaping through the hole in the giant, inflatable donut decouration on the roof of the building. Some concerns have been presented against the building, however, as it appears that a construction oversight has left the building with no emergency exit.

Whenever Arachnos secures a would-be "Destined One," the first place they typically drop them off is on the steps leading to the Mercy Island Arachnos Administration Building. While Arachnos used to bring these villains to Fort Darwin, Longbow ruined that several years back by successfully converting the fort in to a foothold for their own operations in the Isles. Arachnos will often enlist these villains to help with the Longbow situation, but it never seems to "stick," and the damned Candy Canes (as many villains like to call Longbow personnel) keep on creeping back in to the various corners of Mercy.

While it might appear dark and dank, the bayou-inspired terrarium is actually a rather peaceful place. As not all heroes are interested in the bright sunshiny veneer of suburbia, or the glistening steel and glass of down town metropolitan living; sometimes it's nice just to get away from it all and go somewhere where the most hustle and/or bustle you need to contend with are the fireflies, frogs, and storks of a healthy swamp.
This event begins 08/24/20 and repeats every 25 days forever
The beautiful and strange Isles of Pandora, whose islands of forests and hot springs float among the stars. These exotic islands are home to the Avariel, a race of flying winged elves who fiercely protect their land against those who wish it harm. The Isles were made of ancient fae magic, but recently it has become necessary to hold the islands together with the latest Portal Corp technology of humanity: A last, desperate attempt to save the mythical land from sinking into the endless summer skies of Pandora. For now, though, these hovering islands rest among the Sea of Stars, for all the Galaxy to see and visit. Whether these others will be welcomed by the Avariel, however, is another story . . .
