How are you Choosing Your Titan?

This is a question I've been pondering since I gave my pledge to the kickstarter....

In the past, I've always gravitated towards a new "main" as each new game came out.
In City of Heroes, it was "the American Dreamgirl"
In City of Villains, it was "The Empress (Tizane Bathory)"
In Champions, it was "GhostHack"
And in DCUO, it was (though very briefly), "Flying Fox Girl" (hero) and "Outfit" (Villain)

And now, here I am.... I, like many of you, have dozens, if not hundreds of characters that I've made and loved over the years, in every SuperHero game where character creation was possible.... Each with their own stories, their own personalities and goals....
...But I am unsure what I should do. Should I carry over Ghosthack (who will likely be just as impossible to design in this game, as she was in Champions).... or perhaps another character from my broad library? Or Do I come up with someone new, unique..... someone who belongs to this world, rather than simply adopting it's customs as I try to adapt the character to fit in?

So..... What have you all decided to do?
How are you choosing your Titan?

currently... i am coming up

currently... i am coming up with 1 character per classification.
Then I RP them out.... and basically roll with whoever suits my mood and the power lvl of the rp taking place at the time since my characters all tend to represent very extreme sides of the personality spectrum and power pools.

In game i tend to play either a tank or healer type... so i am hoping the defense/manipulation set is tank viable. I am super worried I will have to 'reroll' when they release that set... because I love Arch.. he will probably be my main. Tank in pve stuff, be obnoxious in pvp, and rp with just about anyone. I don't want to lose his badges.

The Red (Gladiator type) is fun for rp but is rather OP... so I dont really roll her out that much. She cant die, has an attack set that is basically unstoppable. Her weakness is mental instability.. basically her only rp saving grace.

Melody 'Sound Storm' (Partisan) is about the exact power level I find fun to rp, sadly her offensive set isnt exactly suited for the current grouping of rp characters.. she would either murderface them or do absolutely nothing to them... no real middle ground... which sucks

Arch (Bulwark) is great to rp for me at least.... but it takes a lot of effort on others behalf to engage him in a non monolog-ing styled rp

I am about to roll out my Director, Sentinel and Ringleader. My Director is all sorts of messed up socially... my ringleader is quite literally a demon and kind of a douche... so it will fall on my Sentinel to be my "normal personality"

I'm probably going to take a stab at recreating my name-sake stalker. I always heard that a scrapper was the easiest AT to learn the game with, so that probably wouldn't be too far off from good advice for this one too. And stalkers were like scrappers, somewhat.

This is assuming I don't get some crazy idea for a fire-breathing bunny toon or something too. :P

I had tried to leave Ron Bolton aka Rotten Luck behind. However I kept finding I been remaking him in CO, DCUO, TSW as others. I had one form or another of Ron for about ten years.

So of course Rotten Luck be my first Titan.

An excellent question! I've

An excellent question! I've been thinking along similar lines... do I re-invent one of my classics, or my Main, or do I turn the page and begin completely anew?

I think I'll be recreating my original Main, (Doctor October) not just because I loved him so much, but so that other CoX'ers who find CoT whom I loved playing with but lost touch over time can hopefully reconnect again. Then I think some completely fresh inspiration will likely come given the new character creator, new venue, etc.

As an avowed alt-a-holic, while my main was my Main, different new toons would become my obsession for long stretches, so I have no doubt that will happen again. I recall many happy hours running through "Outbreak" with a newly minted hero, working to get that damn badge before clicking out and daydreaming about power selection and slotting and abilities with my latest project...

I've got several ideas

I've got several ideas floating around. One that just grabbed me was based on the Shoulder Dragon (Thanks, Terwin!). I'm not sure yet if Hypatia is her given name, or her nom du cape. But if you see her in her civilian identity at the public library in the Alexandria district, she will have a bookwyrm on her shoulder.
Tinker Belle (not dressed like the Disney spokespixie, and the name itself is long since public domain, or so the sailboat and the locomotive would imply^_^) goes back to the early nineties in a P&P GURPS Supers game. Tinker as in inventor, and Belle as in she's from Savannah, Georgia. She has an incarnation in CO and DCUO; if I had played CoH she'd have been there as well.
Likely I will wind up with many alts (Hi, I'm Foradain, and I'm an Altoholic!), but I think Hypatia will be getting a lot of play. Once I figure out what she can do ^_^

Nightmare has been my

Nightmare has been my signature villain/character since I first started CoV at launch (Trivia time: He was originally a Dark/Dark Blaster named Morticai until I got Touch of Fear. It gave the idea of a fear mage and.. well the rest is history.) so of course he'll be my main here, though I can't narrow down if I want to make him a Partisan with some Minion powers or one of the Master ATs with some Ranger abilities. Then, of course, I'll be making a few other alts like OtakuRanger (planning on a MA Melee Tank with a few other abilities) though I can't come up with other concepts for more alts. Honestly, I just want to try to have Nightmare and Nightmare only as a character.

heh, I've discovered my number one problem, is that I can come up with awesome ideas, once I'm "inside" the game.... or inside one of the other MMOs.... but the look and feel, often, is so specific to the resources available in that particular game... that there's no real way to translate the character from one game to another....

Case in point, I figured out an awesome look for a new character, using CO..... but unless the dev team creates a nearly identical set of costume items, it would be impossible to duplicate in any other game...

I'm an altaholic and no

I'm an altaholic and no mistake. I plan to TRY and limit myself to toons with good RP connections or who had really good backgrounds as opposed to some collection of powers that might work well together. In no uncertain order I plan on having

Daedalus (all-around capable powered-armor hero)
Total Violence (remake of my first Villain from CoV and a great Brute)
Lady Icarus (Daedalus' daughter, a flying fire Blaster)
Dr. Zombie (misunderstood Mastermind)
Infinity Traveler (Time/Grav Controller)
Hit Parade (patriotic hero, Scrapper)
Other villains TBD to balance the stable.

I remember when Star Wars was cool...a long, long time ago...

Amerikatt has her own Supporting Cast, so I'm going to try to recreate them as best as possible. Only Amerikatt herself should pose any problem at recreating, but if there is a way to create a "Jill-Of-All-Trades" with Healing, then I'll be in Super-Kitty Heaven!

I have almost 200 alts to

I have almost 200 alts to catch up on, so I doubt I'll collect them all. On the other hand, I have at least a dozen with very well developed back-stories (at least, in my head), which I plan to revive. It will depend on what powers are available. After all, I can't remake 'Rogue Nightwolf' without his swords, 'Perfect Perry' needs Invulnerability and 'Light-show Boxing', and 'Kitten Dreams' needs 'Mist' and some form of Mind Control.

Then there's my 'cosmic-powered college professor', a human-form Peacebringer named 'Starlight Saint'. I've tried recreating him in other games, but it usually just doesn't Work. CO did come pretty close, though.

Be Well!

I will probably try to recreate my oldies, create some story about how they narrowly escaped the apocalypse, perhaps via some interdimensional wormhole caused by the catastrophe or something like that. Perhaps with the change of coming somewhere new, villains or heroes will change their ways, don new costumes, or maybe the travel there caused their powers to change, stuff like that.

Feel free to throw more ideas in that pool and use it.

Remake my old toons....nope..

Remake my old toons....nope...

The reason being is that I crafted them with a set system (CoX). They could do, or not do certain things. Their powers and more importantly, their limitations, shaped them in game and in me as well. CoT is a different system. If I were to remake them, this new system would alter what I grew to care for into new and jarringly unrecognizable forms. I would grow dissatisfied with what they could not do, that they used to be able to do so easily. Their story would have to be altered to accommodate the "New Way", and that would be somewhat unfair to what I had achieved with them before.
As Catherine America put it earlier......My Titan will choose me....and hopefully the stories we all create will be even better than what has come before.

They also serve, who only stand and wait.

I've started a list of old

I've started a list of old characters that I want to build... most from CoX, but a few from waaaay further back when I played TSR's Marvel Superheroes RPG. I'm less about RP than I am about cool names and backstories, so I'm expecting somewhat of an easier time of it (even if I do have to wait on the ones that I know have to have specific power sets).

My old CoX main, Crimson Shroud, will likely be my first in CoT. He's easy to build in the sense that he has no powers, just a technological aptitude and a love for hitting things til they stop moving. So he'll be an Enforcer, and I'll build him based on what strikes my fancy from the starting power sets & what I can turn into a good story.

On the other hand, my First Hero Ever (TM) from my TSR days was Turmoil, who used sound and light to blast and disorient his foes. He has very specific power set requirements and won't come out til they release the Range/Manipulation spec with both of those options available.

The rest will be case-by-case. If a combo is released that will allow me to remake someone on my list, I'll prolly do it. If a combo is released that will allow me to reimagine someone on my list, maybe I'll do that instead. If all I'm really attached to is the name and the character, and the powers are negotiable, I'll mess around and see what fits (likely multiple times... I think I had 3 or 4 different versions of Vortex Nova by the end...)

It's sad to say that in

It's sad to say that in almost every MMO I have played I make character selections in the same way.

1. Choose a class (AT/Type/ect.) that is focused on support style gameplay.
2. Fiddle around for a few hours in the costume generaltor.
3. Revisit decision 1 if a cool costume suggests a different path
4. spend several more hours in nthe costume generator trying to improve the look of the new idea.
5. revisit decision 3 when an even better idea comes along.
6. repeat all of the above until I either fall asleep or get frustrated and hit the 'random' button.
7. revisit decision 1 when the random button sparks a new idea.

In other words, I'll most likely end up with a support based set, but I'll drive myself crazy doing it.

My main is all ways the same, Tiger. The alternates are a different story. I'm thinking of basing them off the costume pieces we get from our Kickstarter rewards. That being said, I'm not sure what I'm going to do with Dr. Tache's "mind control head in a jar" helmet. I'll just have to wait until they come out with the character creator to find out.

I had a Solo SG with five different characters, all straight-up Archetypes that I used to help me figure out different play styles/game mechanics.

It was called PrismForce, its members were
ForceGOLD - Grav/Kin Controller
ForceBLUE - Energy/Energy Blaster
ForceRED - FF/Energy Tank (Later switched to Shield)
ForceGREEN - Emp/Emp Defender
ForceVIOLET - Super Reflex/Broadsword Scrapper

I might do something similar, depending on how the CC works and how many character slots we get.

I guess it depends on how you look at it, i never looked at Paragon as being the main earth since my character comes from another reality.

Well, even if that's so, in CoH lore, Primal Earth (Paragon's Earth) was the main Earth. Much like in DC Comics, they have a main earth (or did...they may have retconned that out). But yeah, CoH lore had the Earth we played on in game, as the main Earth.

Which, no problem there, I just wonder why people think it had to blow up. Not against that idea mind you, but the game closing doesn't mean it had to blow up.

Played it more like Marvel doing crossovers with DC now they both had their primal earth but were separate all together. That is what I mean not like 616 or ultimate going to the their main earth. That's how I always treated it and I'm sure others did to, since you can basically have any kind of character in a superhero mmo stemming from scifi to gothic horror or fantasy. By the way I miss seeing new art from you on DA. :)

An interesting theory. I came

An interesting theory. I came to the result that vanguard (or nemesis) had to close the link between our world to stop some kind of interdimensional shennanigains. They're still fighting the good fight (or the bad fight) but we just can't see them the way we did before, that's all.

As for who my first will be, I'm not sure. Every time I start a new mmo, I create a toon that I don't have any emotional attachment to. That way, if I can't get into the game, no loss. That being said though, such toons are usually the first ones to hit the level cap, save the world and do all that jazz. There's three or four of my old friends I'd like to revive with a firey passion, but we'll have to wait and see.

The fact that I don't have a sig is a nemesis plot, but now that there is one, it could only mean...that my head hurts.

My old main was a spines/dark/body scrapper, RPed for about 5 years on him(He even had a family) I don't think I can remake him, but my secondary, I never got to play him as I really wanted, I think he'll be my new main (Gold-Fire) But I really hope they allow us to really broaden a character's abilities, I like jacks of all trades. Though I'll probably start him off as a melee or ranged DPS character...

Same here! Fortunately he is a "normal" with the Technology origin, so I'm just gonna give him new tools and a new workshop and see what he tinkers out.

Mine was a demon/angel hybrid? I really wish I could have made him broader, and might remake him eventually, Spines, Dark Armor, Light and... something? I dunno, I wanted him to be smiting, slashing, healing, blasting, and eating souls... He was vigilante, I think he'd be Honor: 8/Law:5/Violence:10.

I've moved away from any of

I've moved away from any of my old CoX characters, partially because I never had a character I played heavily for more than 2 years, and partially because most of them are products of my tastes and personality from one or more years ago.

My planned main is Drosselmeyer, a robots Master. Given that Masters aren't planned at launch, I may delay him for other characters or initially roll him out as a Power Armor Ranger, Stalwart, or Guardian. Since he's largely evil Iron Man, I plan for him to have a lot of specialized suits to play to a number of different Specs.

I have a few big heroes planned. First is Black Phantom, a Striker based on Golden Age mystery men, especially Sandman. Second is Silver Sirrush, some sort of Ranger or Guardian with a suit of alien powered armour with vaguely near-eastern themes, big inspiration here is the Jaime Reyes Blue Beetle.

The world is a mess and I just ... need to rule it.

Well, I offically have two heroes... three if you count Element (who I gave Tigs permission to kill off in his Hurricane Atlas comic)...... I'm going to try and flesh out and develop them over the course of the next X# years... make them someone you all know in the game, when it comes out.....

I always been either the DPS

I always been either the DPS guy or the Paladin type in MMO's. Though I must admit in my younger days as a Paladin, I would focus on DPS and healing ONLY myself. I have matured a lot since then and now wish to be a tank/healer in any game. The reason for this was because of CoH, I had a scrapper that rocked leveling but endgame wise was terrible. Taskforces became impossible and I noticed that other classes excelled, not to mention they had fun playing. I noticed that as a scrapper I was expendable as I didn't really offer anything to the table in boss fights.

So this time around I'll be making my hero a tank/healer and build him to be a teamplayer. Not sure which class that would be in Titans but Sentinel, Bodyguard and maybe even Bulwark sound good to me. So what you guys think is the class that fits the bill for what I'm looking for?

I'd say you built your scrapper wrong :p Not offer anything? O.O I was rocking leadership toggles while dishing out more ST DPS than builds that could possibly dish out more but the players 1) didn't have the survivability to handle it or 2) players just didn't build to full potential (for whatever reasons).

Paladins are a stable in Fantasy rpg's, they're the multirole class that focuses on DPS/Healing/tank roles depending on how a player decides to build their character. They are holy knights that use white magic to bless and repeal the wicked for the common good.

I know I oversimplified it but I hope that helped!

I don't plan on bringing any

I don't plan on bringing any of my CoH crew over at this time, either as dimension hoppers or a "heroes reborn" retelling in this new universe. If they were born into that universe, they're tied to that universe for me, and they live on in that universe, as far as I'm concerned.

However, many of my characters have roots dating farther back, and some of these might be appropriate in this universe. I'd once made a wide range of supporting cast members for my own GURPS Supers campaign, then later on in Champions pen-n-paper, they were reimagined again. Now a dozen or so are being re-imagined in my never-to-be-published "novel" that I started as a NaNoWriMo challenge, so I'm getting practice at imagining how they'd be in various settings/universes. If the setting AND the powerset is a good match, I may be inspired to dust them off.

At the moment, I expect my first character to be a throwaway generic. That's the character I'll use to uncover lore initially, get a feel for the world, and draw inspiration for my next character.

one of the Ultimas.... I don't remember which. the reviewer was working his way through all of them, and the main character is THE VERY DEFINITION OF A PALADIN, had been called a Paladin, and called himself a paladin in previous games..... hence the "rage".

now, it's all i can think of, whenever anyone talks about a "paladin"..... and I really hope there's an NPC named "paladin" in the game, so every time i walk up to him I can say in local chat: ".....What's a Paladin?"

Ultima IX. And that wasn't why he was raging. The Avatar wasn't a paladin but rather had a friend who was (Dupre) who gave his life to save the universe in Ultima VII: The Serpent Isle. The Paladin Order is actually a HUGE thing in the Ultima games and live in the city of Trinsic, that city being the one devoted to the virtue of Honor. Did I mention the profession has been in the series since Ultima I and that Dupre had been a companion since Ultima II as well? So.. yeah.. that part pisses me off immensely

For some of us, that's exactly what our mains are. My name sake was created back in junior high O.O as writing a story and PnP (TSR Marvel).

She's changed a lot over that time of course. From mutant (<_< I'd totally be tempted to make her a mutant costumed crime fighter in a Marvel MMO again) to scientifically created human/supernatural hybrid.

The later I think works better when not in the Marvel universe. The later works in the Marvel universe, but she was created with the idea that Marvel seems to lack mutant costumed crime fighters.

well.... cloak and dagger and

well.... cloak and dagger and Heroes Inc both put that hat on from time to time... but yeah, if you are a mutant in the Marvel Verse, your stuck in the othering-war that is at the core of the X-men mythos.

I think I always change characters because I always choose very unusual powers... perhaps not unsual in function, but a "quirk" on the norm that never seems to translate into the Game space.
My original character idea in COH (pre-archtypes) was an anti-hero named Gallows who was a sort of batman-type "urban legend" character who had absorption powers similar to Rogue or Bishop (absorb a person's "life force/powers/etc" and convert it into physical prowess and an energy skin)..
Clearly, once I knew more about how COH was going to work (when we ALL finally learned how it was going to work) that inital idea was out...
Then came ADG who I assumed would be a totally simple character to make in the game... basically just a tough heavy hitter...
Problem was, Scrappers were too "scrappy" (and couldn't have Super Strength) and Tanks weren't really "fighters" in the sense that I wanted ADG to be... so SHE got shelved.
when Villains was announced, I created Tizane Bathory, an immortal with hex powers similar to Scarlet Witch... and eventually made her as an Energy Brute... which was fun but made ZERO sense for her character...
So, I changed ADG, and Brutes were TOTALLY her jam, but now she was a villain...

Same was true of Champions.... None of my Pre-launch characters "worked" in game (even though I was absolutely successful in capturing their "look' in game, which was awesome) Particularly my namesake who was intended to be a sort of scrapper version of a dominator, who would mezz mob groups and pick off weaklings using boxing/krav maga fisticuffs.....

Games just dont play nice with my characters.... So no matter my good intentions... it's likely I'll just have to make up someone new in the first weeks of the game that actually "works"

I know what you mean. Brand X was originally a mutant telepath with dual pistols. Telepathy just doesn't well in MMO RPing and dual pistols became dual blades, because dual pistols wasn't an option.

On the plus side, I just said she can use all weapons expertly. Which when I made her in Mutant & Masterminds I was able to! She just used her favored ones a bit better (better crit).

Some of my COX peeps will be making a return, I am sure (notably Naughty Nurse!) but I intend to come up with new people to start with.. I've been idly kicking around ideas in my head and have some fairly general characters ready to play.

-- Gamma Rabbit (love to John Scalzi): probably a tank, almost certainly with super-strength, and some sort of giant Mallet of Loving Correction.
-- Winterborn (love to the Cruxshadows): probably a ranged/control type. Bulky spessmarine armor, guns, and some sort of ice powers (ice-based self-destruct??)

I am the Godzilla of love. Where I have passed, nothing remains but smoldering rubble and traumatized Japanese people.

Currently, I'm writing, forming, thinking and re-writing out a story that will fill out the whys and hows on why Fantomask (my main) is in Titan City. Once that is filled out, I will probably re-write the biographies of my other heroes and maybe create new ones in the progress. Though I was very late to CoX (as I installed the game on the same month it was announced to be closed) and I sometimes make the time to play both Champions Online and DCUO, I like to think there has been a time skip between the 3 games and that City of Titans will be in "Present Day."

I think it is likely I will reanimate my favourite CoX toons first, should similar powersets be available in game. More likely I will attempt to create a brand new bunch of toons to test out what the game offers to determine what play styles and AT appeal to me.

Since I am a TERRIBLE

Since I am a TERRIBLE altoholic, depending on how flexible the character creator is, I may not have a 'main' at first. It's extremely likely I'll resurrect several of the character ideas I had and loved in Cities, though in slightly different forms. I've already done that for Scylla/Veil here on the forums; I'm just hoping there's a build that fits her, since she's one of my favorite dark RP chars ever.

I am not an altoholic! I can stop whenever I want. No, really...

I have decided to try new

I have decided to try new characters for City of Titans. Inspired by Kickstarter and the item perks:Petalstorm's brush, PR Ninja's sword, Dr. Tych's mind control beard, DeathSheepFromHell's utility back pack, Quinn's fairy wings, Terwyn's shoulder dragon, Warcabbit's hammer and toolbox, Phoenix travel power & pet, and the Kickstart travel power & costume. So my plans are 9 heroes and 9 villians; one character for each of the planned 18 archtypes...and then we'll see what happens from there. :)

I'm hoping to revive several

I'm hoping to revive several of my "lovable monsters" from CoH. I am a Tank at heart (though I made characters of every possible power combination at one time or another) so I will probably start off with a new incarnation of Bloodfyre as my first hero. After that, who knows? Depends on where I can fill in the best for the most teams. It seems there is always at least one AT in short supply at any given time. Usually in the beginning stages of a game, it's in the healer/utility area. Enter Cyber-Saint. Maybe Tankenstein will be the work of an EVIL genius in this iteration? Voodoo-Doll (nemesis of all things Barbie) will likely make her villainous return. So many fun concepts, so few character slots...

I'm really only going with one main. I may make more heroes and villains just to try them out and certainly won't go in half-baked with them. But my heart and self will only exist in one hero as that one is supposed to be "me."

While I will remake a few of my CoH characters, I hope that I'll find something to recreate Manipulative Maiden with.
I'm an altist by heart, so my "main" will usually be 2-3 characters and then at least one character of each combination of
roles I can come up with.

I don't have any definitive

I don't have any definitive plans set in stone as of yet. I do have a few ideas, but they need to become a bit more solid before I settle on anything.

However, I do have at least one partial plan already, although it might sound a bit silly. In case my username isn't obvious enough, I'm fascinated with alternate reality stories in TV and comics and such (like the old TV series Sliders, Star Trek's "Mirror Universe" or DC Comics Earth-1. Earth-2, etc), and I tend to imagine that many of my characters across several games (or sometimes within the same game) are alternate versions of the same being from different timelines/realities/dimensions/etc. So while I may not have a definitive idea for who or what my Titan(s) will be, I'm pretty much set that there will be some ties to at least one of my other characters in some form or other.

Look is of course subject to change based on the limitations of the creation system...

Nova is designed using elements of concepts I've done in the past. The name will be almost impossible to get so I do have a couple back ups.

Soon as I finish his art hopefully some elements can be taken and used. I think that's reason enough for us to show off our concepts. :)

This may turn out not to be the case. As discussed in this thread, there is a possibility that each account will have a unique handle, and character names will only have to be unique within that account, and the full character identification would be name@handle. So we might have Nova@Nova being yours, Nova@SomeoneElse being SomeoneElse's, etc. If it's handled like CO does, you'd only see the character name in normal gameplay, the handle if you rightclicked on the character's icon, and name or name@handle in the chat log, depending on how you set your preferences.

My best answer to the

My best answer to the original question: I have to wait and see.

Like you, GhostHack, I tend to make a new "main" character with any new game. But that character is very often inspired by the game itself. I have to wait and see what the city looks like, to read up on its history, to see what the powers look and sound like, to see what power sets are available at launch, to see all the costuming options, etc. Parts of all of those will likely influence what my main character ends up being.

I fully intend to recreate a select few of my favorite characters from CoH, including my old "main," but I cannot wait to see what new characters CoT inspires me to create.
