Call to Action: Masks and Capes!
« on: September 09, 2012, 12:40:39 am »
Hey everyone, it's time for our next Call to Action!  For this one, I'm going to defer to @Maressa, one of our own loyal community members in Ireland who proposed it to me.  (So she knows a thing or two about having good luck!)  When she told me this idea, I immediately thought that it's brilliant, that it's an awesome way to show NCsoft that we are heroes, that this is what we do.

So with my full backing and support, I'm going to let her give the details of our next Call to Action!

Hi folks, first off I want to thank TonyV for all the hard work he has put into this campaign so far. And of course a huge thank you to all of you in the community. Tony and I couldn’t do this without your support. Now, I know there have been calls for people to send cakes, and dolls and all sorts of things. Well that’s what this is. Except, cakes aren’t really all that relevant to City of Heroes, and dolls…well they can be a bit expensive. So, we have come up with a cheap way to get the attention of NCSoft. By sending them in Capes and Masks.

Thankfully Halloween is coming up so there are a lot of online stores out there selling Capes and Masks. I have picked a Cape and Mask that are cheap and plain enough that they aren’t clearly one character or another.

http://www.costumeexpress.com/Superhero-Red-Mask-Adult/802363/ProductDetail.aspx

Now, by no means do you have to use these two. These are just what I found in a few minutes of searching. You may even find something at your local dollar/euro/pound store.

Another option, one I plan to be doing is printing out our own masks to be decorated. I’ve found a couple and thanks to my team had them laid out for you so you can print several out without wasting paper. Even if you aren’t artistic you can get involved. Write messages on them, but keep it polite and clean.

Some messages mine have:

#SaveCoH
We are Heroes. This is what we do.
We are Villains. What’s ours is ours.
My Global Name
My Character’s names
My Character’s powersets
What Server I’m on
Phrases my Characters Say



What you put on them is up to you.

Once they’re decorated, or the mask/cape is bought you need somewhere to send them! We’re asking everyone to send them to one of three places:

NCsoft Corporation
157-37 Samsung-dong
Kangnamu-gu, Seoul 135-090
KOREA

NCSoft Seattle
1501 4th Avenue, Suite 2050
Seattle, WA 98101
UNITED STATES

NCsoft Austin
6801 N Capital of Texas Hwy.
Building 1, Suite # 102
Austin, TX 78731

And, if you’d like to send in a picture of your masks to Tony and I, we would love to see them. Send the pictures to masks@cohtitan.com and we will include them as part of our press package.

Thank you all for your huge support. Start sending out those Masks & Capes!

I'm tempted to make a mask with Arachnos pattern because I play a Widow in my account... Will get this worked out when study break comes by. Awesome idea though. Thank you! :D

Aha! Finally a use for the old ex-Halloween costume cape that's hanging in our closet. (It was part of a Zurg costume.)

I can't find a green cape with a red interior ANYwhere online or in shops...needs to be fairly long, but not floor-length....

If someone can acquire one for me, I will GLADLY don it in support of this idea!   8)

SOOO loving the idea. I will be sending each mask I get separately. With me in Arkansas I will likely target the Dallas office for a semi-local effect. 

I'm still putting my shirt idea together. Once I have it I will be sharing with everyone.

I have taken out the sewing machine, and am working on replicating my main toons cape to send in.

Paper is interesting, but an actual cloth cape should stand out.

What about any folks who maybe have pics or parts from Paragon's Halloween contest a few years ago? I didn't participate, but I know they ran a "dress up like your toon" contest. Anyone else remember this? It would be awesome to send in pics of your toon and you side by side.

I am glad someone is doing this idea! Be sure to send them so they HAVE to sign for the delivery ;)

I like this idea....partly because you can find masks anywhere and everywhere this time of year! Or make your own...

Don't have scrap material to make capes with, but I know I can print out the masks at the local library...and buy markers, glitter, sequins and other whatnots to put on them:)

And then mail them off to Korea or Seattle...! (wonders if anyone knows someone over at DA who can promote this campaign...:)

With Halloween coming, this should be a piece of cake. There are even masks (and sometimes capes) in the grocery store. I have to head to Walmart later today, and I'll be sure to pick something up there.

I love it and will be doing a combo of capes and masks. Another idea just came to mind. This action will show NCsoft how dedicated and loyal we are. It would be great(!) if we could show any potentially interested parties (new owners) as well. Now I thought about replicating this action to those parties, but that might actually be taken as annoying for them. (I was thinking of having it more like a "please save the heroes" charity mailing...but still) Anyway, I defer to TonyV's genius in this matter since A) he would know if there are even any potential buyers/backers to focus on and B) can probably come up with something less annoying to them...
    Just a thought.
