Snagged this screenpic a couple nights ago, running in City of Heroes with friends. We've had these characters for a while now, but never got a good picture.

The Viridian Guard

(back row) Princess Nia (cobie), Maximum Jade (avantard), Keiri Hau (curlybrace)
(front) Brainhammer (archmage)

There's a few more members (foomf's Knalgroene, bryce's Scarab Blade and chaosreality's Defiant Legacy), and one day we'll get a full team shot. Anyway, think the "Green Lantern Corps" and you're pretty close to the mark. Got started due to the backstory of a different toon of cobie's, 'Emerald Gauntlet', which was done for a whole Justice League tribute group. Hell, we even did our best to have all our powers be as green-themed as possible, hence my huge glowing hammer.

And yes, I know viridian is actually blue-green. I didn't name it. ;)

That's pretty cool. Being a huge Green Lantern fan, I would have had a blast taking part in something like that.

*L*, I knew you'd appreciate it.
Tobey Cooketherpunk on December 13th, 2007 07:20 pm (UTC)
Yeah, it's pretty cool. I'm actually thinking about getting back into CoH with the new patch and all and the updated costume choices. I just need to find one of those trial codes that's floating around :)

Brainhammer's hardsuit, there, is one of the latest costume adds (though I chose not to use the hat, because the exposed brain is sorta his thing). Definite coolness.

Which server are you guys playing on? I just managed to get a serial code (thank you MMORPG.com) so I will be jumping in tonight after I get home.

That crew is on Guardian server. Look for me on global (@Archmage Chaos) for the group hook-up. Only requirements are the black-and-green outfit and as greenish-themed powers as possible (with the new Weapon Customization feature, this just got a lot easier!).

i got a company party tonight so i may not be around.
cobie on December 13th, 2007 07:32 pm (UTC)
well, if you do, you got a themed supergroup (that you already like) waiting for you. =]
cobie on December 13th, 2007 07:03 pm (UTC)
i think it's defiant legacy. of course now that i've written it out, i'm not so sure. =P i'll hopefully remember about the caps i took and post those. i took a fuckload.

and as for the name, there are only so many synonyms for green that haven't already been used to death by the actual green lantern franchise. besides, it's what lets us get away with forcefields. like those are truly green anyway.. =P

True...and yes, I think you are correct about the name.

That is one fun group. I've got Scarab Blade to level 10 now, looking forward to the next group run whenever that is.

I think I'll actually be going with Fly as his travel power. Which is funny, because I think I already have more fliers on Guardian than on the rest of the servers put together (not counting Peacebringers, anyway). But thanks again for helping me transfer that insect wings recipe. The only thing is that I think they don't look right standing still, at least not for Scarab Blade. So I might just use a second costume slot and "fold them down into my back" when they're not in use. Hmm.

Fearless leader: Will be have a regular meetup? Bimonthly, if not weekly?
Super President Chestnut Mayor: Great Scott!bryce on December 13th, 2007 09:32 pm (UTC)
Yeah, AmpliFire lucked into a drop, how 'bout that for timing?
God of Thunder and Rock'n'Rollarchmage on December 13th, 2007 09:49 pm (UTC)
It wouldn't be hard to make one costume with the wings, and a second with one of the "Insect" capes, and a pair of macros for flight on and off could make it work....hmm, indeed...'twould be pretty nifty costume use.
Curly Bracecurlybrace on December 14th, 2007 12:31 am (UTC)
Ooh... I'll have to check in Icon and see how that looks. I have a bug-themed lowbie I recently made and was wishing the wings folded down, too.
God of Thunder and Rock'n'Rollarchmage on December 14th, 2007 12:35 am (UTC)
Only thing to deal with is the 30 second delay you have between changing costumes. At least, though, you'd be able to 'pop' the wings out (switch to costume 2) when you fly, and if it was a short jaunt (less than 30 seconds) you'd just have to wait it out, letting the wings 'settle' before folding them down.

And, of course, the fact that the 'wings' cape would flow like a cape, not a carapace.
Super President Chestnut Mayorbryce on December 14th, 2007 04:24 pm (UTC)
Yeah, we'll see about the cape. "Insect 3" is the one that looks the most like actual wings, but 1 and 2 look more like beetle backs. Not sure whether I'll make it match his costume colors, or his natural turquoise exoskeleton. :) But I have another 9.5 levels to decide, hehe.

If I'm not moving vertically, the cape flapping shouldn't be too conspicuous, hopefully. But for now the wings just disappear into my back.
God of Thunder and Rock'n'Rollarchmage on December 14th, 2007 04:48 pm (UTC)
Yeah, that should work just fine. Another vote for backpack-style costume pieces: carapaces!

That makes me want to play that game even more than I already did.
