The concept of this SG came on a whim after being asked to come back to CoH. A classic themed SG with a modern, techno twist, dedicated to global threats over minor ones. It was influenced a lot by the like of The Avengers (Size, style, Focus), Justice League (Style), and SHIELD (Focus). We wanted a small, intimate group with an ability to roleplay and respect for the classics.
The Vigilants are an enclosed organization dedicated to the safeguarding of Earth and its inhabitants against intergalactic and interdimensional threats. Their focus is primarily on alien and otherworldly beings, though, they still take the time to deal with more localized threats out of a sense of duty.
The creation of The Vigilants came about thanks to a single girl known as Galvanized Gal. Having been contacted and given a gift by an extragalactic being known as The Entity, she set about a task he had given her. Her task was to form a supergroup based on technology and science and gather like minded extraordinary individuals to help safeguard the planet against alien and otherworldly threats. But more importantly, to prepare the planet for an eventual and possible future invasion that could very well change Earth forever.
-Sally Galvis, aka Galvanized Gal, creates The Vigilants and begins recruiting in Atlas Park and Pocket D for potential members.
-Sally surpasses her goal of ten members to establish the group, reaching a total of twelve.
-Sally reaches her goal of twenty members.
-Plan One for the Bastion is set in place, station now operational.
- No Killing the innocent or those who surrender willingly.
-Life is precious. Those who're uninvolved in the dealings of villains, caught within their scheming webs unwittingly, or desiring to just live a life of their own without harming others are to be protected. We will go out of our way to save and protect those innocents in harms way, regardles sof the situation. Similarly, those who surrender willingly are also worth protecting and saving, as no one is beyond help or redemption.
- No committing of crimes, regardless of the good they MAY do.
-We strive to do good in all ways, that includes utilizing unconventional means when going against certain situations that require a different approach. We do our best to work inside the law at all times, to affirm it's power, and to show respect to the leader's who put them in place to protect their worlds, nations, and/or cities.
- Respect the local and global authorities.
-We believe that those in legal authority deserve respect due to their dedication to go beyond the call of duty with a willingness for self-sacrifice, regardless of their ability or lack thereof.
- No one is beyond help or redemption.
-A life is a life, regardless of the side it stands on. All life is precious, and we seek to preserve and save as much of it as possible. Even villains and those who do wrong can be rehabilitated, redeemed, and turned into a beacon of honor, justice, duty, and truth.
Base of Operations
The Bastion is a modular, orbital space station designed so each section can be shifted independently, allowing for critical sections of the station to be moved to a more protected location during times of crisis. Powered by a crystal similar to the one Galvanized Gal utilizes with her suit, it is capable of powering a state of the art security system, cloaking device, life support, numerous observation and communication devices, mobility, and defensive weaponry systems.
The Bastion is currently undergoing construction, slowly expanding each day as new modular sections are built and attached to the main station.
It's current location is current classified.
The Bastion Plans
Being a modular space station, the Bastion is capable of shifting modules (rooms) to new positions. Each configuration is labeled as a plan. As the Vigilants gain more funding, more plans will be set in place.
-Little is known of this powerful being. Only that it contacted Sally one day, gave her a gift, and a task to create the Viiglants. Sally described the being as an immaterial and intangible, warm gold-blue light that spoke to her without words.

Overview and Other Information
- Technology, Science, and Alien based
-Though we're based on science and technology, we accept all origins. It is more the theme and concept we focus on.
- Classic Costume with a Modern Touch
-Our one requirement is that you have at least one classic-styled costume. Any Golden or Silver Aged costume, with modern touches is acceptable.
-Our content is rated Mature, akin to a Rated R action flick. Other, more adult types of RP is accepted, though only in private.
-To make for more intimate and inclusive roleplay, our group is to be capped at about twenty members. Some exceptions may be made in extreme cases.
-Ranks and Roles will be determined on a mix of activity, roleplay, and prestige. Though ranks will mean little beyond recruitment and certain permissions, roles will be judged based on characters and how well their concepts fulfill them.
-Our group is more for true hero types. Heroes like Statesman, Superman, and Captain America. We do, however, accept vigilantes, so long as they have a moral code in line with the Vigilants.
-Our inspirations come mostly from The Avengers and S.H.I.E.L.D., and a bit from The Justice League.
