Ship of Heroes delves into space magic

Magic in space? Ship of Heroes is determined to make it work.

The superhero MMORPG announced today that it will be including a magical subset of heroes and villains into its lore and gameplay. All superpowered humans with magical ability are part of the Attuned, a general-purpose group with this kind of affinity. But tucked inside the Attuned is the sinister Red Sigil, a cult that believes that mages should be used as the “first line of defense” and be put in charge of the giant ship.

“While superhero mages tend to fall into a few general categories, there are countless types of magic in the galaxy, including some odd outliers that are difficult to classify,” the team wrote. “The mages of the Attuned hate the Prometheans above all others, and this antagonism is reciprocated. The Attuned fundamentally like the ship as it is. Even the Red Sigil only want to seize control of the ship’s political system and revenues; they would be happy to have super-powered subordinates if they could effect a coup.”

Not sure if this will end up being my style of game but I’m rooting heavily for these guys.

They seem like a no-nonsense, nose-to-the-grindstone type of company without all the “hype” and “talk” the other CoH clones are doing.

Even though they were last in line with a silly name, they seem like they’ve gone leaps and bounds past what the other three or four planned games have done.

Wasn’t Redside announced last in line? (not that it passed a Kickstarter)

I dunno. I haven’t heard any updates/communication about a “Redside” here on MOP in months.
