I had a couple of questions that I feel could be very important for possible backstory and roleplaying.
First, I would like to re-create my main from CoX as closely as possible with TPP. This isn't because I loved CoX, though I did. I love roleplaying and spent some time building up a story for my character. I'm sure that I'm not the only one who feels a sense of emptiness, almost like closing a book halfway through or trying to sell a novel that is only half written. I see no reason why I can't write it into my toon's story that he moved from Paragon to Titan City. If I was to do that, would I be limited in what kind of references I could use?
Second, I led a roleplaying SG called Freedom Strike, on the Justice Server. I designed the base specifically to roleplay with. I had technical areas clearly seperate from living areas. The XMen mansion/school was an influence to me. In designing the base, I used a LOT of mundane items. Just one example; our hospital room had a reception/office desk and waiting area. I had operating tables and equipment set up in an area apart from the reclaimators and auto-doc. Our library had a secret safe, our eating area had a fully equipped bar, and a large area was purchased and seperated into smaller areas using the large blue lateral file cabinets as walls. These smaller parts were used as personal living quarters for people who wanted their characters to move in. Will there be as large or larger selection of mundane things? You know, fire extinguishers, stacks of books, tossed papers, wall art, bathrooms, laser printers, flora, lava rocks, etc and so on.
May the wings of freedom never lose a feather!
