Titania: You wish to see the distant realms? Very well. But know this first: the places you will visit, the places that you will see, do not exist. For there are only two worlds — your world, which is the real world, and the other worlds, the fantasy. Worlds like this are worlds of human imagination: their reality, or lack of reality, is not important. What is important is that they are there. These worlds provide an alternative. Provide escape. Provide a dream, and power, provide refuge, and pain. They give your world meaning. They do not exist; and thus they are all that matters.

A Few of Coreth's Characters

Coreth started out messing around in the MMO world with Star Wars Galaxies in 2005, with his main character Coreth Landwalker, a Master Ranger/Master least, until the hated New Game "Enhancements" which removed his main profession entirely, trashed the game interface and combat system, and drove off a very large chunk of its playerbase-including him. He'd gone back a couple times after a year passed and having heard of design changes that made it tolerable...but the damage done to his friends lists and the continuing direction of the devs there finally permitted him to leave it behind forever.

Okay-that's enough with the third person.

In that bleak year, I spent my time in World of Warcraft using Coreth as a Protection Spec Warrior. I actually enjoyed my time there, but the raid-centric attitude of the game at maximum level and an inability to get into a guild that I felt comfortable in eventually led me to exit that game too. I bummed around a bit in Lord of the Rings Online as well, poked my head into EVE Online, but none of them really seemed to offer what I was looking for.

Enter City of Heroes. I'd started playing CoH sometime in '06, but hit the unofficial RP server there in mid '07. I had a blast there! But as all things begin, all things end; with CoH going dark, there was really only one other option for superheroic gaming. And there we are.
