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!

Mostly quoting this because I just love that logo...a lot. I mean really a lot.
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 ><

So does everyone else agree? Are we gunna go with this for our symbol?

I'm cool with the new design, though the flames in back feel too horizontal for something on someone's chest, in my opinion.

The flames in the background

The flames in the background are meant more to be additions to the image, rather than additions to the symbol, which is why they aren't quite as vibrant and substantial as the core phoenix logo. All my attempts at adding solid flame designs ended up taking attention away from the phoenix itself.

Also I'm mildly amused that the logo seems to be burning its way out of the quote pyramid as it's shown on my display.

First post on the forums,

First post on the forums, though I've been lurking since the Kickstarter went live. I'm Marty D. on the Kickstarter website. I originally pledged $25 for the Kickstarter on day 2. By day 5, I realized I could afford to contribute more, so I doubled my pledge. I think that counts as "increasing your pledge" to join the Initiative?

So, yeah, still working on what my "title" will be (haha), but I'll edit my Kickstarter name once I think of it. Happy to be here! 2 years won't go by quickly enough.

I guess the add-on thing has me a little unclear (never had to do it for any other project I've kickstarted). The way I understand it: I pledge, choosing a reward pledge I'd like to receive, and done, I'm a backer. Then I edit my pledge and, rather than choosing a different reward tier, I simply edit (increase) the amount I'm pledging... yes?

(Feeling a little noobish at the moment)

That is correct. Just add up

That is correct. Just add up the Add-Ons you want and add the total to your pledge. MWM will email you about the difference and you can specify what you want.

Also, your account will not be billed until the Kickstarter ends, so you have until the beginning of next month to make sure the funds are there.

Yep, you totally got it. :) And if you added on any money for actual add-ons (as opposed to the Phoenix Rising feel-good thing), you can let MWM what the extra money was for when they send out a survey after the KS campaign is over...

I love the look of this. Von, if you'd be willing to share the pieces (or tell me where you found them), I'd like to see the bird have a head though ...

something like this maybe ...

In other interesting news, I was contacted by the founder of the first CoT SG, The Paragons, asking if Phoenix Rising would like to be in a Coalition with them (as well as some other SGs). I said we'd be happy to. :)

For a non-Marvel twist, any coalition using a Phoenix should have 5 groups, and those groups should have the following themes: Eagle, Condor, Sparrow, Owl, Swan.

(I know someone will recognize this one...)

@Kiyori, and everyone else

@Kiyori, and everyone else that's interested... Here's some info about our Mysterious Benefactor's past and love for gaming:

"I played my first video game (Adventure) when I was 4. I played my first RPG (Original D&D) when I was 5 and I ran my first game, a Palladium Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles campaign, when I was 12. Started doing RPGs back when I was twelve. I am an avid writer and reader and I continue to be a gamer both on paper and in the virtual world some 34 years after I began.

I love stories and love to be part of the collaborative effort in a world story that CoX encouraged and that no other system really seems to allow."

I think I've only ever seen like three episodes of Battle of the Planets. It's just one of those things that my brain catalogs and stores for future use, though it's very seldom useful.

Except in cases like this and trivia games. I usually get around 30 questions of the 61 questions asked per episode of Jeopardy correct. My highest score was 56, but that was a kids Jeopardy episode. :P

Jeopardy has also made me found out I know some damned strange things. Like getting the whole category of "French Crossword Clues" correct.

Heya gang! OP here from Guardian. I'm not that well known since I was a lurker, but I did chime in on the Guardian Channel from time to time.

So, I must have had an extra bowl of "Stupid Flakes" this morning, but how do I join the Phoenix Rising gang here? Mainly the kickstarter thing. I know Pepsi will gnaw on me and drop a meerkat on me already, so I know what is coming for the hazing. But I'm not sure what to do for the KS part of it. Would someone explain it to me sometime?

Thanks!

*Flies off at high speed*

Yup... Extra helping of stupid flakes for sure...

@OP, Hi hi! The Phoenix

@OP, Hi hi! The Phoenix Initiative Project is a cause to create more revenue for the game, so all you have to do is up whatever your current pledge is by a measly 5 bucks and you are inducted into our gang/sg/coalition :) We would be glad to have you and anyone else, but don't expect to get in without getting some meerkats, cookie butter, and sloths!

Oh, and once you've upped your pledge, just change your name on Kickstarter, and or here to whatever you would like it to be and that will be your official Phoenix Rising title!

Firstly, Congratulations on

Firstly, Congratulations on starting the Phoenix Rising initiative, well done. Secondly, congrats on getting the base, that's a truly awesome thing (be wary of strange men offering gifts... ;P)

I doubled my initial pledge, then doubled it again... (My Credit card is going to hate me... :) ) Though I may not be in the Phoenix Rising SG If I'm able to get enough people involved from my usual community (Watchfire), I do want to be allied with the group in some way. (It might be I create an Alt to join it or if they allow aliances, ally WF with PR).

This is BruceP's baby so he should definitely be in command/control of the group (unless he doesn't want the job). I'm not sure how, at this stage, we pick other people to be leaders or what the base should be though. The thing with the base is that different people will want different things / looks from a base. Above all, it needs to have a place for us to just chill and hang out. One thing though, there DOES need to be a Phoenix statue in there... :)

We all have it in us to be a hero to someone,
Super powers are optional.....

Part of the Phoenix Rising Initiative.....

Proud to be a hero. Prouder still to be a member of Watchfire

Welcome Kate and

Welcome Kate and UmbralWarrior!

Umbral, we'll definitely have a Coalition, or whatever they're called, with a number of SG's in CoT. The founder of the first SG in CoT, The Paragons, reached out to me to form one, so we'll be in good company. :)

As far as leaders go, we'll have a few. Not sure who yet, but likely me, Per Ignim, Kiyori, and others I'm not remembering or know about yet. :)

You want me as a leader??

Welcome to Kate and Umbralwarrior, and all new peoples :) I'm glad to see this initiative has gotten so much support and I cannot wait to see everyone in the game!

You want me as a leader?? Even though I can't spell Twerk?? xD

But seriously, I think that you @Bruce should be the "leader" and we should have co-leaders, which I would be proud to be a part of!

I've pledged with the duo option for me and the missus. My main toon will be a Watchfire member but as discussed above; coalitions will no doubt be in CoT, and with the massive cast list of super hero alts I have I'm sure more than a few will make it into the Phoenix Rising Initiative if you'll have them/me?

Welcome to all the new people

Welcome to all the new people's, thanks for supporting this initiative and most of all CoT!! So @Bruce or @Everyone, are there any new ideas swimming around about the look of the base outside/inside, plans of action as to goals/strategies as a super group if that's even a subject matter at this point? That being as far as hero/villain, names for the villain side if so, backstory of the group itself? I can come up with a draft backstory if you would like or anyone else is able to, and I guess since your the leader as probably agreed by most @BruceP, you could be the final heresayer of what the final story of the group shall be.

And also, if the SG's are similar to CoH, what will the classes in the SG be? I'll start off saying the leader should be "Phoenix Risen" or something along those lines, and the lowest class "Embers" or "Ashes"

@SPatriot, well we made 140

@SPatriot, well we made 140k in 1 day, so I definitely think we can make 92k in 5 days!

So I have a fun idea, we should make a backstory together! And only 1 jar of cookie butter and 1 meerkat/and or sloth are allowed in the story, so be creative with it. So I guess I'll start with an idea of how our story starts:

Tired of constant defeat, Nightstar, Siege, Maelstrom, and Mother Mayhem banded together after finding the rare item "Dr. Tyche's Mind Control Beard" and form the group known as "The Abdicate". Their goal as The Abdicate was to turn all citizens into crazed mindless villains.

Alright, I think that's a good open point to open the story up!

(The direction of this story in my mind would go for the citizens to destroy atlas park(or other CoH city) and from the wreckage came both the villain and hero side of The Phoenix Rising, but obviously we are all writing this story so lets shake it up a bit :D)

I thought the idea was that

I thought the idea was that it's set in a new lore, not based in CoX? Like, it's more of a nod at what we lost, not directly involved with it? I'm not arguing, of course, I was just basing my own thought processes around the idea of this being completely new.
