Vilnius, Lithuania Modern Day
The summons arrived in an unusual manner.
Svetlana Malenchinsky aka Strela was visiting an archery store in Vilnius. The shop was a modest affair tucked into a modern building on a side street. The sign on the window said simply "Vilnius Archery". She was pleasantly surprised to find good sized store stocked with all manner of archery related items. It even had a large, indoor, archery range.
The man who walked into the shop was wearing the uniform of the Lithuanian army. The rank on his shoulders marked him as a Leitenantas - or lieutenant. Without a word he walked over to the super powered archer. "This is for you," he extended his arm and in his hand was a white envelope.
Strela took the envelope and the messenger turned and left without another word. For a moment she considered going after the man but thought better of it. He was just the messenger.
The letter was on plai

It took the three of them over two hours to find the spot. Finally she recognized a gray rock sticking up out of the sandy ground. A few minutes of digging revealed a metal hatch set in a small square of concrete.City of Heroes Old Feuds New Consequences part 2 by CaptFox
Tadas ran his hand along the edge of the hatch. "It's been welded shut." From a pocket he took out a small, power saw. "I can fix that."
It took a good ten minutes to cut through the welds. It took considerable effort to pry open the hatch. It squealed loudly. The rusted hinges complaining as it was pulled open. It revealed a dark hole.
Strela examined the hole for a long time without touching the sides or going inside. It smelled of stagnant water, rust, decay and a faint whiff of ammonia. A metal ladder descended down into the darkness. She ignored the ladder and using her ability to fly she slowly lowered herself down ins
City of Heroes Old Feuds New Consequences part 3 It took Strela ten minutes to make it to the scene. It was a nondescript dirt road in a region filled with a mix of farmland and scattered forest. She was reminded that this area had seen some incredibly bitter fighting in 1945 between the Russians and the Germans. Lithuanians had fought on both sides, some had even fought against both side but most were just caught in the middle.City of Heroes Old Feuds New Consequences part 3 by CaptFox
The border itself was marked on the ground by a chain link fence that had been torn and ripped apart. This left the actual border marked by some ankle high bits of metal and a line of concrete posts.
Iron Wolf stood on one side of the border and Snow Maiden the other. There was barely a meter of open space between them. Both were screaming, yelling and snarling at each other as they waved their arms about. To his credit Iron Wolf had not drawn his sword - yet. And Snegurochka had limited her hostility to yelling. But the ground under her feet was frozen solid.. A sure sign that she was tr
Paragon ChatSo, the folks over at Titan Network have done something VERY nice for all of us die-hard fans of City of Heroes and it's also pretty useful for folks who like to roleplay. They have unveiled Project Soon(TM) and released it as Paragon Chat. A lot of folks have dubbed it as basically a chat room using the City of Heroes engine, and for what we can do, yeah, that's a pretty good estimation.Paragon Chat by RolandGrey
But it's not complete yet. That's only the beginning and it's a Hell of a great start. It's a work in progress, with the developer, Leandro, making little changes here and there every couple of days. Sometimes things go a little haywire and content you had to purchase when the game was running is suddenly locked again, but he's usually quick to fix that.
Now, the main reason I want to discuss it is because of the capability of the program. It's a great roleplaying tool. The game was described by Penny Arcade as "People watching at its finest." As much as
