I am currently in the City of Heroes beta. They have recently said they may lift the Non-Disclosure Agreement within the next week. Which got me to thinking.

One of the things I love is the character creator. You can come up with some interesting combinations.

What I am proposing is a new activity of sorts. We have had plenty of Name the Hero, or Here's a Name - Give Him Powers activities. What I would like to do is give a URL to a random image I create in City of Heroes, and let our great community give that character a small background, name, and set of powers based off of the costume.

How many would be interested in this?

Again, I wouldn't be able to start this until after the NDA is lifted.

Thanks,

Darkwind

I've spent HOURS playing with that hero creator. They did a really good job on making it so that you can just make a completly random character, or one almost exactly to your like. Which is a bit obvious with all the Tick and Wolverine Clones I've seen running around.

I was thinking about doing that with comic character pics on the net. But I thought it would smack of conversionism even if it wasn't. ie. Like if I showed a pic of Longshot and somebody came back with he was a Eugenics character named Genesis with these powers, abilities, and background.

sounds fun.... But, not everyone will have CoH. Why not open it up to any non-copywritten picture? I've got a few pencil sketches bumping around....

I tried this a while ago, there was some interest, so I'll start again.

Some of these character's already have names, but don't let that stop you.

Most of these are X-men Evolution or Bruce Timm/Batman The Animated Series/Justice League style that I've done for another fan site on the net, some of them are NPC's or PC's in various RPGs I play in.

I think I've posted a couple of these before.

1.http://www.synapse.net/towey/Azure-Evo.jpg
2.http://www.synapse.net/towey/Duelist.jpg
3.http://www.synapse.net/towey/Nalan.jpg
4.http://www.synapse.net/towey/knight.jpg
5.http://www.synapse.net/towey/Splice.jpg

Have at it........... :lol:

No one will need to have CoH. I will make a random character, screen shot it, and post the URL to the pic. If other people wanted to post non-copyrighted pics, I am fine with that. For my part though, I would just click the random generator and post a pic with whatever it comes up with.

Yeah, I can completely see that not happening for several reasons.

That's one of the reasons I was going this route. It is not an established character and as long as the NDA is lifted, us fans will be able to use the screenshots, etc.

Thanks,

Darkwind

Well, the NDA on the City of Heroes beta has officially been lifted. So when are we going to start seeing those screenshots? :D

Hmmm, that is an iffy one. I would allow it, but you know someone, someone would just violate the trust/ honor system and attempt to make a conversion and then I would have to close down the entire thread. So just to play it safe, I am going to say no.

Non-copyrighted images are ok though. Or if you are the artist of a given pic. (a pic that is not a pic of a copyrighted character)
