Former City of Heroes developers fill out the game’s annual lore reveal

I'm going to blame these jerks.

There are going to be two potential reactions to the yearly set of lore reveals from former City of Heroes developers Matt Miller and Sean McCann. One is a quick skim of the information, a shrug, and a general lack of interest. The other is going to be impassioned cursing about the fact that the team was at one point working on storylines involving the Omega Team, Scirocco changing sides, and Tyrant taking on Statesman’s cape that we never actually got to experience.

While this year’s document is on the short side (and Miller outright admits that he’s forgotten many bits and pieces from the project due to time and distance), there’s still plenty of interesting stuff herein for players to chew on. Of particular note are the aforementioned stories which were planned and never executed, along with confirmation at long last that Mender Silos was, in fact, completely on the side of the heroes. Check out the full lore rundown if you’d like a few more answers to nagging questions from the departed game.

SimyJo negative. When we stop talking about it, they win. We never give up, and never give in; we’re heroes, that’s what we do.

I’m so tired of being an MMO hobo since City of Heroes was taken away that I’ve pretty much stopped playing them.

I realize that these little gems of lore aren’t long for this world, which makes me treasure them even more.

Just stop it! – please!….

It’s bad enough I have to go on playing video games knowing I likely will never again experience the high that was the EU City of Heroes community in-game.
I miss you Paragon City…. so much.

Respect to the devs for doing something like this. I remember Scrivnomancer and nusquam have said that they will find a way to tell the whole story of TSW if it ever gets shut down.
