Re-Introducing Dust Raven

Posted October 25th, 2011 in City of Heroes

Dust Raven has been my namesake character, and general online persona, since I first logged on the Internet. It should be no surprise that I’ve given this character so much attention, and have put a lot of serious effort into making him into a character I truly enjoy playing. He was originally roll-up on Champion as a grav/kin controller, though with most of my friends playing on Liberty or Justice he saw little play. I eventually rerolled him as an illusion/kin on Justice, but the more I played him, the less impact he seemed to have in group play (almost the group I played with regularly did not the core buffs associated with kin, and the occasional strobe effects of illusion presented other problems). So I re-imaged him as a corrupter, which was so successfully he quickly level to 50 and became an incarnate. Unfortunately¬† just as quickly he became boring to play.

So here I am again with another re-roll. This one’s a little different, in that the “original” Dust Raven, the corrupter, still exists, but has left Paragon City indefinitely. Instead this re-roll is the Praetorian version. He’s still very much the same person, but unlike the Primal, Praetorian Dust Raven takes an active interest in the well-being of others. He’s a team player rather than a rogue. I’m looking forward to seeing how this version of him plays out.

In this version, Dust Raven is a dark/dark blaster. The origin of his powers is the same (summoning dimensional fire), but the effects are different. He’s currently out of Praetoria, and a member of Nobody’s Side, though he may end up in Star Patrol as time goes by.

Agent Rosencrantz

Posted September 26th, 2011 in City of Heroes

Presenting Agent Rosencrantz! I transferred Rose to Justice from Protector when CoH:Freedom went live. His original name was Flamestrike. The concept for the character actually comes from an NPC I used for an old Rifts campaign. The general idea was a guy who turned to human augmentation as a means of survival and revenge after his family (and entire town) was killed by monsters. The end result was a somewhat loopy/zany fun-loving guy who could suddenly turn wicked scary in the blink of an eye. I think I’ve captured that in Flamestrike/Rosencrantz.

The name “Rosencrantz” comes from a mercenary (with a love of Shakespeare) who could never get remember the real names of anyone, and thus gave them nicknames.
