Hello and salutations!

Postby Lady Talonfist » Mon Jul 30, 2018 9:32 pm

I'm Lady Talonfist! some people may or may not know me. I've been pretty much in lots of MMO's. But my origins from bringing Abi to life (or unlife and then back to life again :P) from the pen and paper games of AD&D Forgotten Realms back in the late 80's, to early 90's RP in chatrooms, to finally, my very first hero MMO, City of Heroes. This toon has a 30-year ongoing storyline and will continue onward til I am in my grave. She's not only in games but also in illustrations due to commissions with amateur artists, as well as my own stories I've started to begin putting out there. Whether it be on another forum database profiles or even other MMO bios, you'll definitely know or remember her. While there will be other "dimensions" I'll be sharing this toon with, I'll be flying around in Ship of Heroes joining the rest of you out there. :D Can't wait to give SoH a go.

Welcome!! I gather all superheroes in the "Of Heroes" series are referred to as Toons? I'm still not entirely familiar with how things work around here, and it confused me when I was asked what "toons" I used to own. I nearly got to play City of Heroes but was shut down by I assume region locking since I got my copy whilst on holiday and never got it working. That said, I am super excited to get started with Ship of Heroes and meeting everyone else involved :D it looks like such a fun time!! Nice to meetcha!!

I prefer the word Character myself. toon seems too cartoonish for me.

I did too. But then it grew on me after many years of reading it in chats lol.

Fair enough I guess, I would prefer the term characters but if enough people refer to them as toons I guess I will too :P

I think toon is just something that we got used to using purely because everyone else was using it.

Welcome aboard, by the way ;)

Eulb, we've spoken many times crotchety is not a word I would use for you, however it does describe someone else....

Penni get off of Eulb's account! :evil:

What is Reality, what a Dream? Is the dream changing your reality or is the reality defining your dreams? Only one being aware, that awareness can never be complete can use both to become the best possible and combine both to form the future! PDM

I am neither old nor anything else you where mentioning here (it least not to your standards ;) )
and still I don´t like toons - that sounds more like CO to me - CoH or SoH are in characters in my book :D

and Penninguin - let the children play - they grow so fast ;)
