Radio Show during the Paragon Chat Vigil

Paragon Radio will be live tonight (10pom EST to midnight) covering the Vigil. For those who can't listen in live, due to work or timezones, etc. they have provided a link where you can catch up later.


City of Heroes - Shutdown Vigil on Paragon Chat - November 30th, 2018 - All Day

It's that time of the year again. The time when people all around the world remember having the rug pulled out from under them when NCSoft shut down the City of Heroes servers for the last time.

A vigil will be held again this year on the steps of the Paragon City Hall in Atlas Park, on Paragon Chat. You can read all about it on the Titan Network forum, and also find out how to get onto Paragon Chat if you'd like to join us.


City of Heroes - 2018 shutdown vigil underway

The 6th anniversay of the shutdown of our favourite game is upon us and people are starting to gather on the steps of Paragon City Hall.


If you fancy joining in, details on Paragon Chat and how to connect, etc. can be found on the Titan Network Forum.



A few hours later...

We had a pretty good turnout! Well over  a hundred people standing together on the steps... It doesn't look like that many in the screenshot but the old client couldn't display them all!

Tale of an Unlikely Super Hero


Birth of a Hero is part 1 of an ongoing series of stories, available on dashingdon.com as a Choicescript game/story.

Alice, a teenage girl born aboard the Federation Hero Ship Justice is involved in an accident while on a school field trip in the engineering section of the ship. Massive exposure to some rare and highly reactive material nearly kills her, but she survives and becomes the latest superhero, helping to protect the ship and mankind against all comers.

At present there's no part 2 because Alice actually doesn't yet have a superhero alter ego. Once Ship of Heroes is released, I'll write the next part following her rise to superhero stardom.

See http://www.heroesin.space for news about Ship of Heroes.

Golden Avenger Showing off Toons in Paragon Chat

Paragon Chat allows a user to log in multiple times on the same account so, depending on your PC's abilities wrt memory and CPU speed, it's possible to have many toons logged in simultaneously.

The image below shows nine of Golden Avenger's toons logged in, nicely arranged to show off their impressive costumes. There was another off camera, all on the same account and on the same PC.



To find out how to do this, take a look at pchat.life for more details.

CoH Shutdown Vigil Started Early for Some

The 'official' date for the City of Heroes Shutdown Vigil is 30th November (see you there!) but that didn't stop some people unhappy at the loss of their favourite MMO holding a torch for the game over a week early on the steps of the Paragon City Hall in Paragon Chat.

The MMORPG City of Heroes was shut down by NCSoft on 30th November 2012 in a move that surprised everybody, including the developers of the game - they had only a few months warning. Since then, the players have held a vigil every year on that fateful date for their favourite game.

And here's a screenshot on 30th November, more people logged in to celebrate their game and commiserate with each other over its loss...
