  1. Took Blazelight as a rename, so Sapphirine Blaze is free 🙂
  2. I'm still running around with Phaseshift but I wouldn't call Blacklight active, there's some interest but no real movement.
  3. Ah, smell that brand new art smell, first commission of a Homecoming character! 😄 Lithium, by Kaninchenbau who I found from earlier posts here! Commission her at https://commiss.io/alicekaninchenbau
  4. Another one of my favorite artists is back from a hiatus and taking commissions. If you like 80s style anime, he is your guy! https://www.deviantart.com/hinomars19/journal/COMMISSIONS-OPEN-819014990 Some examples I have in links because the pictures are big: Whitestar Roxy Acetylene - 80s punk style
  5. Honestly the game's population is 90% people who are older with less free time on their hands then when the game was new, it really can't do anything *but* fade, and will absolutely never operate like a live game because the goal isn't really to get new players. Sure, there will be a few, younger siblings who heard stories, etc, but all of this has been a negative growth proposition from the start, its one big long nostalgia trip. Most of us look back at the things we did on live and go 'ugh, I would never have the time to do that now', and don't forget that the 'Devs' of Homecoming are not faceless programmers paid a salary to make stuff, they are just players with extra influence on what to do with the game working on a several year old codebase divergent from Live. Their aim is making the most people to be happy with the game with what they have to work with, and like it or not, the majority of people are going to be happiest pretending that the game never shut down and they are just as 'cool' as they were back then. Assuming they could even put locks back in at all, which, given the time separation, I find highly unlikely without breaking things all over, the only way it could be done without losing a significant chunk of the playerbase would be some sort of 'hardcore mode' toggle that you would have to set for your account/character if you wanted the locks to be in place. Putting anything 100% behind an unlock mechanism will only have people screaming money grab, elitism, favoritism, etc depending on method of unlock, and deeply erode the trust the players have in the Devs, which, given the entire secret server disaster that started this, is very fragile already for a number of people.
  6. And last was Regulus whose entrant is below
  7. Next was Miss Limina, her words were Emerald, elegiacal, effervescent. Along with the costumes above in green, there was this entry, again no name, started with Cun I think..sorry...
  8. Screenshots of the in game entries and some explanation! The costume contests were the entrants were given three words to design a costume around for the three hosts. Anthem's first post was for Claudia's words: Vintage, Fire, and Accessories. The other entries are below. I thought I had left UI on so I don't remember full names at the moment but it was 'Sugar' and 'Second' when we were judging internally.
  9. (Yes, this is the right topic for screenshots for anyone participating in tonight's games! 🙂 )
  10. Don't forget, this is happening in 1.5 hours! Hope to see you there!

  12. Don't live in Atlanta anymore, and its not the same owners, but a long, long time ago, we did a ATL CoH meetup at Battle & Brew. As far as I know, they are still open. I don't know as they'd let you load Homecoming but if you're looking for a spot it would be a little poetic 🙂

  17. From what I've pieced together(this is all speculation by other peoples comments and such), she was in a relationship with someone who took advantage of her, and gained credentials to many accounts and used them maliciously in revenge for her ending it, not hacking in the sense of dA breach, but who knows.
  18. So she had some personal issues, and that led to stalking and harassing on dA that dA's solution for was 'make a new account', which she did, and the harasser found shortly thereafter. She is still reachable by email for things, but yeah, sucks 😞
  19. Do need to fix the goggles and I apparently didn't unhide the rest of the face shadows after working on eyes, whoops! Light is supposed to be right, slightly higher than center, and her left (right to us) leg is bent slightly, calf forward of her right (left to us) which gives a little light to it, but mostly shadow, have to work on that knee a bit to try and make that clearer, maybe take the light off the front of the boot too

    Virtue Roll Call!

    *wanders back through again* Liberty League, man, that was lifetimes ago, but Hi Boscoe!
  21. I'm slow, like epically so, but we have progressed to shadows!
  22. Blacklight hasn't really gotten any members, either, but if you are on late (after 9pm pacific) and want company, hit me up @Kai I still play Phaseshift who is redside as heroic intentions to protect civvies, not so much heroic methods 🙂
  23. I got behind with prep and completely forgot to edit this with the base code, so sorry! >.< The code is MIDNIGHT-8903 if you'd like to visit though, hope to be using it for more events in the future, and its open for everyone to have their own RP or events there!

  25. Not all heroes sleep through the night, and it can be lonely out in the dark. The Midnight Oil is opening its doors Friday September 27th at midnight eastern(9 Pacific) on the roof of the Blackwell Building in King's Row. A place to recharge, meet fellow night owls, plan your next move, or just stop in while waiting for a lab or informant to get back to you, we are your late night relaxation station in costume and out. Our opening is happy to host Speed Icebreaking, attendees will be paired with each other for ten minutes of conversation on a topic selected by our moderator while taking advantage of our amenities. ((Stay tuned for base code, and link for background music, don't want to spoil it yet!))
