Recently I started feeling superheroic. After several attempts and bruises in real life (running with a bed sheet attached with a piece of rope is apparently not a good idea for an almost 30 year old guy) I decided that playing an MMO would be a better choice
Since I haven't been playing CO for a long time I thought I might give it a try again. I have the lifetime sub, so it's no big deal to just update the game and start playing. However with DCUO being out, I thought I might go and do some superheroic stunts in that universe. In general while I love the customization options in CO - I have much better connection with the DC universe lore. And then I went to the CO site on FB and read Behind the Mask
article on lore... which brought me to the HERO Games store, where I bought Champions Universe
pdf. And I just need to say - WOW!
I am surprised how rich the Champions world is, and how great this book is written. It's a pure pleasure to read it, and suddenly it made me realize that this universe and game gives me much greater possibilities of character creation! It really is absolutely great, and with the direction the game went it all seems to be a lot of fun.
Anyway - I plan on reading the book, and finding inspiration for my new character. I think that the Champions Universe is worth taking a look.
If anyone survived till the end of this long post - congratulations!
I was so amazed by the depth of this world, that I just had to share it!
