National Novel Writing Month is November (http://www.nanowrimo.org/). It sure is a daunting task to even attempt to write 50,000 words in a month, especially when that month you might rather be playing the game, rather than writing about it, but if a few people write CoH fan fiction novels it might be worth a little publicity.

This is a good idea, although I've heard that you can go for lower word count goals, in order to make things slightly less challenging.
I think that i might do this, but I doubt I'll go for 50k words. I also had a thought about making chapter titles security levels maybe? (Although obviously, this means the chapters would get progressively longer.) Just a thought.

So, if we know someone who has a 3D printer, is there a way to import the 3D data of what a CoH character looks like into any sort of modeling software, or is the only way to artistically attempt to duplicate it? 

And even if there was a way to export it, would that be illegal?  (even in the 'technical' sense of 'illegal, but nobody will care if you just put it on a shelf or use it as a figure in your personal PnP game').

You can always privately print from Shapeways.com

why on God's green earth would you want to throw any more money at NCSoft when they collectively crapped all over a loyal playerbase?  This is the only thing that any nostalgic trend towards manufacture of new merchandise would render.   And I would be wary of involving them in any potential shared business decision considering they threw money and manhours at this game fervently for a year and a half only to pull the plug with little or no notice.  That company operates under no scant trace of anything representing logic, and has blatantly lied about not receiving any offers on the intellectual property.

with the advent of the new 3D printers I would say a no-brainer product would be a 3d printout of your in-game character; you would have to paint it yourself, though, which people like to do.
. you could include a set of paints that match the colors of the character in the game

I'm not sure if this is the right thread for this post. Moderators please feel free to move it to a more appropriate one or completely remove it if I'm in any way out of line.
 
The shutdown announcement has violently pushed my passive, but deep interest in finding CoH swag into high gear. It has taken more than four months, but I have found a fellow player who has the same passion and just happens to run her own graphic design business. Laura has a few auctions on eBay, but has refrained from posting her work on any of the forums because the risk of poor taste.

I recently sent her a few ideas and received wonderful vinyl stickers at a very low cost. She can design for you or work with the ideas you send her. Also, I would be more than happy to email the few basic designs I have made for myself. Because I don't want to be seen in a poor light and don't want her to seem opportunistic, I will give out the details and Laura's contact information through PMs only.

 


 
(Along with a small taste of her work with my designs, the attached pictures have RiP States emblem from a fellow Titan who has since appeared to have left the fold. I have to assume Eric became MIA due to the pain of the loss and wish him well.)







 
Again the ideas that I have are simple compared to Laura's, but I will happily forward what I have created. Please know that all I am is a fan and a happy customer with her permission to share my purchase with other CoH Survivors. I in no way benefit from this plug and only hope to make the swag search for other Titans who wear their hearts on their sleeve, or in my case their wife's car, a touch easier.

(On a side note note the wife's personalized license plate is "STATES", hence the AP33. Mine is "TYRANT" and I will be sporting the NP33, Nova Praetoria 33, treatment once the car is out of the repair shop.)

Wheee! And given these are pro decals I guess you won't have to worry about them falling off, eh? Why is there a slash through the star though?

Just the other day I was toying with the idea of putting the PPD insignia on my car.

It's not a slash. It's a take on the black bands that police officers put around their badges when one of their own falls in the line of duty.
I wouldn't use the word "replace," but there's no word for "take over for you and make everything better almost immediately," so we just say "replace."

The "Slash Decal" was from my wayward friend, Eric, and not Laura. It was his RiP design and the slash is to represent mourning in the same way of wearing a black arm band.
Not to dismiss his work, because I will keep them in a drawer in my office, but I have "made" a new design for the return of CoH :)

(TimtheEnchanter, if you want a really accurate PPD design, I have one somewhere in my computer.)

There've been novels, comics, and HeroClix figures.  The novels are on eBay, the comics are available for download from the City of Heroes site, and the Clix figures can be picked up in the COV box set, mostly (although there's a separate, capeless Statesman available otherwise).  There was, I believe, talk of a film that never got off the ground, but I could be mistaken (although I'd love to see one!).

Me?  Other than the game staying around, I'd love some of the music on a cd--the opening Atlas Park music when you first step out of City Hall, the funky "bow-chick-a-wow" music of Blyde Square, and more.

I have the music for both coh and cov.  I actually listen to it while playing...gasp...guildwars 2.  Believe it or not but the coh music actually fits better.

http://city-of-heroes.livejournal.com/2765980.html has some links I believe to the content.

It's only 109 MB in size zipped up for both coh's and cov's music.

Since they were publicly available at one time, they're probably on some website for download.  With the song list, you got something to hunt for.

M9_loop was the main theme song for cov when you first logged in.

You can still access certain things (like the comics - scroll towards the bottom of the thread): http://www.cohtitan.com/forum/index.php/topic,4203.0.html

Also, you can get all the music AND sound effects through this thread: http://www.cohtitan.com/forum/index.php/topic,7192.0.html

I think it's been down since Going Rogue opened, actually.

But, as noted, there's other places to get the music.
