Unofficial Handbook of the Virtue Universe, also known as "UHVU" or "VirtueVerse" is a library of fan created original content for City of Heroes/Villains MMORPG genre. Our goal is to provide a place to post, share, and develop content including player created character biographies, character stories, supergroups, villain groups, locations, equipment, and more.

As a whole VirtueVerse is a collaborative fan created and edited project developed by volunteers. It is an ongoing work that anyone who is a part of the City of Heroes / Villains community is welcome to contribute to, it is currently host to 10,039 articles, and 2,282 users. The project utilizes the open source Mediawiki software and is maintained by 16 volunteer sysops.



On April 2, 2007 Deathspider presented the idea of an unofficial guidebook (ala the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe) to the Virtue server forums of the City of Heroes/Forums official forums[1]. A mere two days after the idea was fielded and discussion began, Kadekawa surprised everyone with a fully functioning wiki.

Since that time VirtueVerse has grown steadily, and in October of 2010 it was moved to a brand new server belonging to Ransim. The new server offered VirtueVerse more space to grow, a newer version of Mediawiki and a handful of new features including the addition of Widgets and ReCaptcha.

With the resurrection of City of Heroes in April 2019, Virtueverse has opened up to welcome the community as a whole to use the platform to document their heroic or evil exploits and characters.

Basic Guidelines & VirtueVerse Etiquette

What the VirtueVerse Is Not

VirtueVerse is and online repository collecting original thought and information developed by individual players, there are however several things that Virtueverse is not.

Your Soapbox
VirtueVerse is not a soapbox, a battleground, or a vehicle for propaganda and advertising. This applies to articles, categories, templates, talk page discussions, and user pages. If you do not agree with content another user has posted VirtueVerse is not the place to air your grievance.
A Manual, guidebook, or textbook
Content here is original player content and not considered to be canonical. Likewise no articles should consist of purely canonical information for reference and we urge everyone to provide links to ParagonWiki where necessary instead of reproducing official content.
VirtueVerse may contain content that some readers consider objectionable or offensive. Anyone reading VirtueVerse can edit an article and the changes are displayed instantaneously without any checking to ensure appropriateness, so VirtueVerse cannot guarantee that articles or images are tasteful to all users or adhere to specific social or religious norms or requirements.
Obviously inappropriate content (such as an irrelevant links to a shock site, or obvious defacement of a page) are usually removed immediately. Some items may include objectionable text, or images if they are relevant to the content (such as mature, erotic and adult themed player concepts and accompanying artwork) and do not violate any of our existing policies, or the policies of our hosting provider.
The VirtueVerse hosting provider states you may NOT publish or transmit any content that is reasonably believed to:
  • constitutes child pornography
  • constitutes illegal pornography
  • is excessively violent, incites violence, threatens violence, or contains harassing content or hate speech
  • is unfair or deceptive under the consumer protection laws of any jurisdiction, including chain letters and pyramid schemes
  • is defamatory or violates a person's privacy
  • creates a risk to a person's safety or health, creates a risk to public safety or health
  • compromises national security, or interferes with a investigation by law enforcement
  • improperly exposes trade secrets or other confidential or proprietary information of another person
  • is intended to assist others in defeating technical copyright protections
  • clearly infringes on another person's trade or service mark, patent, or other property right
  • promotes illegal drugs, violates export control laws, relates to illegal gambling, or illegal arms trafficking
  • is otherwise illegal or solicits conduct that is illegal under laws applicable to you or to the hosting provider; or
  • is otherwise malicious, fraudulent, or may result in retaliation by offended viewers
Your Webhost
VirtueVerse is not a social network such as MySpace or Facebook. VirtueVerse pages are not:
  1. Personal web pages - Each Virtueverse member receives their own user page, however these user pages are only to present information relevant to the purpose of Virtueverse. Examples of good uses are a collection of links to your various content on Virtueverse or game related information. This is not a place to host your own personal website or blog.
  2. File Storage area - Please only upload files that are used within your pages or other project pages. Any images uploaded that are not used within articles to enhance that article will be deleted.

This link has nothing to do with About. Really.
