Assuming they have stealth

Assuming they have stealth powers in the game and let me be my old Stalker self, that might be more difficult than you think. I guess we'll have to wait and see... ;3

There seems to be a lot of

There seems to be a lot of references to Phoenixes around the game. The Phoenix statue, etc, is there any lore behind this? I can't remember where the statue is mentioned. Be interesting to tie both or one of the SGs in to the lore somehow. I'd take a crack at it but I don't have many of the facts.

Edit - Found it. It was one of the updates on the kickstarter. The Phoenix Statue represents the actions of the community through "Hurricane Atlas". The Phoenix clearly represents CoX, the death of an era and the subsequent rebirth via City Of Titans, a fitting metaphor indeed. But what if it were more than just a statue? If it represented a hero, lost in the fight against the Hurricane, then Phoenix Rising could be a group of heroes dedicated to the ideals which they and the phoenix represented. Whereas the evil group (currently nameless) are a symbol for the other side of the coin. That death is inevitable, life is just the journey towards it. That destruction and evil will and should always triumph. That murder and crime is the only way to profit. Almost like the open interpretation of a religion.

If a Phoenix Rises, so too shall it Fall.

Not sure how much they will

Not sure how much they will let us integrate with the lore...but the benefactor will be a part of the lore, considering what Key to the City gives him/her.

This means that whoever they are they will be getting a 'visible' hero presence in CoT. I don't know if they are offering their help there, which I'd have to defer to BruceP on since he is in contact with the benefactor, but maybe it is possible that they could use this character as our Phoenix character.

You know, something about how s/he offered up their life in the rescue efforts during the hurricane and were reborn after everything settled down...

Something epic like that, you know.

I don't know. BruceP, could you contact our benefactor and see if they're open to the idea?

Glad I could get the ball

Glad I could get the ball rolling. The Phoenix being reborn after the hurricane is quite fitting. Anyone got any ideas for their villainous counterpart? Someone who envies the Phoenix? An ex partner? Maybe the Phoenix is passed on to a new person after death, and one of the people who wanted the power of the Phoenix was denied it?

@BladeBot
How about if the person with the Spirit of the Phoenix had a partner. Both of them were out there trying to save the city and the event that killed the one who rose killed the partner as well. The brother/sister/spouse/whatever of the partner is bitter and blames the person with the Spirit of the Phoenix because s/he assumes that the hero knew before hand and put him/herself in a dangerous position not fearing the consequences.

Hmm. The Spirit of the Phoenix and the Partner both die, the Partner's spouse blames the Phoenix and vows to kill them. Fair enough. Maybe the villain is chosen by the Phoenix' counterpart? An evil entity at war with the Phoenix spirit needs a champion. Something suitably dark. I dunno. The Shadowhawk? The Carrion Crow?

I know you say you're not

I know you say you're not good at photoshop...but I have a suggestion on the logo. First, as it should be able to appear on costumes, in general there is more room vertically than horizontally, especially when we are talking size.

So, if you could, I don't know, squish it a little, make it more vertical? Not a lot, just a little.

the second thing I would suggest is simplifying the image a little. Remove a little of the jaggies, make it a little more stylized.

Ok, so the second would require more time and photoshop effort, but it might be cool.

Not really what I was looking for...but it is really cool anyway. Especially if it had a Sky garden in the center suspended by connecting bridges from each of the towers.

I will work more to try to turn that into an emblem that would be on a hero/villains chest. As far as getting down and sharpening edges, that is what I am really not familiar with, my sister is a master photoshopper so I'm just throwing things together haphazardly, so for the fine art I would have to get in touch with her

Is that a real building? It's cool. And could be made to look more "flame-like" at night with lighting. :)

Your kickstarter name can be whatever you'd like. Though they have a 40 character limit. ;) And no, I don't think anyone has chosen Necromancer yet.

The idea is to make it with a large circtular courtyard in the center with a suspended platform in the center, which is connected to the 3 parts of the buildings via a skybridge

That could be really cool. Can't wait to see it.

Yeah, I know, I posted before reading to the end. Good start :)

I wonder...and this is just a thought, but what would it look like if the moving flame parts of the building were part of a larger more vertical structure? It might not look right, but if you had windows on the surrounding structure, and hat the flames you are working on windowless, possibly in a different material, it would be obvious they where there...

Who knows. Like the start though.

Like Per Ignim said, it's pretty much whatever you want as long as it references Phoenix Rising in there. And there's a 40 character limit on Kickstarter for names... :)

That's awesome @Bran, would you put the hub at the bottom, middle, top? Or multiple, such as a hub at the bottom that has a see through elevator that goes to the top hub?

Wonder-Woman has an invisible aircraft, cant we have an invisible elevator? xD

I love the idea of having three of these. A formal garden style ground floor, and mid level hub and then a top level hub both with gardens, if not as extensive as the one on the ground floor

Welcome, docfurter! :)

@Rings of Saturn: The Bran started a thread about it in the Kickstarter area before I started this thread. I wanted to make sure one was in an area of the forums that won't get wiped after the KS campiagn is over (and I don't know that area of the forums will get wiped, I'm just being careful). I also wanted to explain about the building from our Mysterious Benefactor in the first post of the thread... :)

Lets see ... Baked Alaskan

Lets see ... Baked Alaskan Zombie...

Zombie recipe 1/2 oz Bacardi® 151 rum
1 oz pineapple juice
1 oz orange juice
1/2 oz apricot brandy
1 tsp sugar
2 oz light rum
1 oz dark rum
1 oz lime juice

Baked Alaska

6 tablespoons sugar
3 large egg yolks
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
3 ounces bittersweet chocolate, melted and cooled
3 large egg whites, room temperature
Pinch of salt
1 1/2 pints pistachio ice cream, slightly softened
1 1/2 pints cherry ice cream or berry sorbet, slightly softened
Swiss Meringue

A variation called Bombe Alaska calls for some dark rum to be splashed over the Baked Alaska. So instead of the Dark Rum splash the Zombie Drink over the Baked Alaska and you get...

Baked Alaskan Zombie!

For our group logo I don't

For our group logo I don't think co-opting some company's existing logo is a good idea.

Though still going with the whole tribal phoenix thing can easily be done with the bunch of tribal brushes and shapes that folks have released for use. Like so:

I add flames (again, from free brushes) and smacked them with layer settings and a few filters.

Put together some individual bits coaxed out of other tribal designs to get the look of a perching bird of prey. I think it's rather nice. ^_^

And not liable to get you copyright/trademark complaints if added to the game.

Very much agreed, hence the "obviously would have to be changed". I am by no means an artist, I was just trying to get a starting image to go on. That is a really cool design, I like it!

This would make a very nice tattoo.

Ok, so my company just won this award and there was a update posted with this picture, and I think it is perfect for a base!!!! It has everything you desired, flame-like pillars, and a sweet front of the building. It's a sleek and modern fire like structure

The wishbone-like structure in the middle makes for a perfect entrance/doorway to the building. Another Idea is to have that(the award structure) just an entrance piece and you could make the building on the side of a cliff and have like a skywalk to the structures that you have in blender that are cascading out of the sea and soaring up in the sky to great heights!

Another idea is if it is an entrance piece(or even a building pillar piece) have them be actual flames that are constantly ablaze. That is the burning passion for justice, and we can never let that flame die!!!

A lot.

This logo is cool, and it is the sort of thing I would be proud to wear on my chest in real life, forget my hero ><
