COH An Old Warrior
By Christian O’Kane
When the battleship U.S.S. New Jersey (BB-62) arrived at the Camden New Jersey waterfront museum on 15 October 2000 most thought her days as a warship were over. But they were wrong. It’s hard to keep a good warrior down. She had been retired before. Commissioned in 1943 she had served in World war 2 and been decommissioned in 1948. She was recommissioned in 1950 for service in the Korean war) and then decommissioned in 1957. Recommissioned (again!) in 1968 (Vietnam war) and retired in 1969. Recommissioned yet again in 1982 (Cold war) only to be decommissioned for what was thought to be the last time in 1991. The cities of Camden NJ and Philadelphia (which is just across the Delaware river) were delighted to have such a major tourist attraction there. She quickly became a major tourist attraction.
The ship's true worth became clear on 23 May 2002 with the Rikti invasion. The Philadelphia/Camden area was major industrial/manufact

After the mass deportations of the 30s and 40s ended the Soviets continued them on a smaller scale right up to the collapse. Sending anyone they deemed criminal or disruptive to Siberia or some other hostile and distant place. Most were guilty of nothing more than disagreeing with the Soviet government.
Exact numbers are unknown but estimates are in the millions. Estonia alone lost over 180,000 to Soviet execution or deportation. (That amounts to over 17% of the total population). Lithuania over 120,000. Many were simply executed, others died under the appalling conditions of the journey or in the camps.
Few ever saw their families and homes again.

The rain rapped hard against window like someone knocking to be let in. The man peered out the window. All he could see besides the wing was dark clouds with the occasional flash of lightning. He tried to ignore the thoughts that came to mind but wi

Settling Accounts part 1
by Christian O'Kane
They were right in a sense. Strela didn't have to go back to the Rogue isles. She could just take up the offer by Longbow and leave her old life behind. But she couldn't just abandon everything and leave. She had some debts that needed to be paid and some scores to settle. Still it was with some trepidation that Strela stepped off the ferry and onto Mercy Island.
"This place looks even worse than the last time." The nanites commented. The sagging piers looked to be only a few days away from total collapse. The buildings that lined the street were rundown and derelict. Everything had the air of neglect and decay. The only sign of life was a pair of Arachnos soldiers who were standing guard on either side of the ramp up from the ferry.
Strela stood there for a moment and slowly and carefully looked around. Not only was she looking with her eyes but also with the enhanced and cybernetic senses. "No one will attack while we are her

She had been waiting for the last hour. This was the third time she had turned on her pursuers and they had learned caution. But then again, Strela had learned caution too. The three had chased her all over Mercy island. She had a half a dozen wounds that the nanites had healed or were still healing. But even they had their limits. She needed to rest and have a large meal to replenish the energy in her body had used up. Strela could contact the commander but she couldn't keep having Longbow get her out of trouble. She had to win this fight herself.
The Russian archer was ensconced within a two meter high pile of brick and rusted metal that might have once been a building. There were several tall buildings nearby that dominated the open ground but she had rejected them as being too obvious a hiding place.
Strela heard a noise off to her left. Looking in that direction she spotted one of her attackers. The man with his powerful weapon in hand was slowly walking over

City of Heroes Empire Express Part 1
The Empire Express
by Christian O'Kane
The night was quiet. Even in a place as busy as Paragon city some nights were quiet. Villains were off raiding and looting some other town and no one had tried to rob a bank in two days! Even Lusca the giant squid that lived in the waters of Independence seemed to have taken the night off.
Misha was standing on the balcony that ran completely around the place they called home. The balcony sat atop the twelve story tall office tower attached to the Paragon City Union Train station. The station itself was mostly abandoned and they were the only two living souls in the entire, vast structure.
Misha Brightleaf, looked like a superhero. He certainly did not look like a normal human being. He stood a little over five feet three inches tall and his trim and muscular body weighed one hundred fifty pounds. Misha stood upright, had two arms and two legs and walked erect like a human but there all resemblances ended. He had the head of a

Misha stopped in front of a gray, metal door. Printed on it in clean, crisp, new lettering was the word "Concourse." Stealth noticed that the door was of case hardened steel and the hinges were reinforced. The lock was a modern, magnetic keypad that was the top of the line.
Misha simply touched a finger on the lock and the nanites automatically entered the needed twelve digit code. The door swung open and they stepped out into a good sized vestibule. The room was about thirty feet wide. On the wall next to them were three doors labeled "Elevators." Opposite them was a doorway. The lettering over it "TO BUSES AND TROLLEYS." Beyond the doorway steps lead downward in the darkness. To the left were set of three, large doors of bronze and brass. The windows in them showed the darkness of the night with the lights of the city twinkling in the distance.
They stepped out into the Grand Concourse. The walls fell back as the ceiling soared high overhead. They were in a

City of Heroes Aftershocks

The border of Lithuania and Kaliningrad 2012
Colonel Vasily Silanov was the first of the major officials to arrive. His MI-8 Helicopter landed in open ground some one hundred meters inside Russian territory. With him was a trio of aides and six heavily armed bodyguards. His official title was Colonel Vasily Peter Silanov, Senior Commander Special program 173. His unofficial title was Super Babysitter. He had the unenviable task of working with the Valiant Defenders of the Motherland super team. That meant working closely with Irisa whose code name is Snegurochka (Snow Maiden in English). It was never easy working with the stubborn and irascible woman but he was up to the task. The scar along the right side of his face and the artificial right hand (both a result of fighting the Rikkti) told that this was a man who had seen combat. There was a scowl on his face as he stalked towards Snow Maiden. He left muddy footprints in his wake, in spite of th
