From Unofficial Handbook of the Virtue Universe
I've been playing City of Heroes since Issue #1. Although there have been ups and downs, I enjoy the game more than ever. I am over 30 years old, happily married, have a bachelor's degree in psychology, and am currently looking for work as a teacher.
I have created and played many characters over the years--some with great success, but most others with less so. In the end it seems my true calling rests on the red side of the game, and so I feel obligated to list my villains first.
The bad guys always get a bum rap, but where would we be without them? My favorite characters in fiction have almost always been the villain, and theirs is usually the more complex development. Few people, no matter what they have done, are wholly evil, and so finding out what compels someone to do horrible things can be fascinating subject matter.
The good guys get all the glory. Playing heroic characters can be a fun way to feel good about yourself in a fantasy world, be they a classic goody two-shoes or a bad boy vigilante. Still, as clean and shiny as these characters can be, and with all the fun of yelling a self-righteous battle cry while teaching villains the consequences of their actions, I get bored with heroes more quickly.
I've added some other content to the Virtueverse as well, including pages about whole groups, extra information related to my characters, and some interesting places.
