The reality dysfunction

3 years ago Next Gen was founded in a daring act of time manipulation, rewriting 30 years of history, erasing a war between mutants and humanity, writing a new timeline of peacefull co-existance and guartding it against threats from all sides. Neither the military might of the fanatics of genetic purity called the Angels of Man nor the murderously powerful mutant fanatics of the superiority cult Purgatory could stand against the heroes of the Tower. From Arachnos to the Praetorian invasion we defeated every enemy with a mix if daring heroics, ruthless aggression and the attitude that there is nothing we cannot achieve with the application of future science, genetic powers and perhaps some duct tape and spit. We have rewritten time, warped reality to destroy the mighty mutant fortress known as the Ark, revived the dead, tamed the reality fire and established a legacy based on refuges from a mirrorworld.

Yet now for the first time ever we face a threat that can’t be stopped, neither by power, nor trickery. Our own deeds come back to haunt us. We have broken and reshaped our reality in until it started to tear on the edges. Perhaps that is what allowed the Rikti and Praetorin invasions but even those threats pale in comparison to what we face now. When Grim Ichor used a mix of magic and science from the future to resurrect the original founder Galaxyan we finally went too far. The last drop tore the fabric of reality apart and it started to unravel. At first the signs were sublte and life went on but now we know the damage is irreversible. The damage will spread until our whole reality breaks apart by November the 30th.

Like a wave of energy this reality dysfunction will pass over Paragon and destroy everything we know and love.

Yet. Something might survive. From the ashes of one reality another may rise. The world will be barey familiar, some of us will die, some will change. Some will remember our world, some will not. Powers and even personalities may change, looks will be barey recognizable but in this new world there will be a Next Gen. Discuss our future in Champions Online

First things first : Yes this does mean COH is going down. We thought and we lost. We will keep standing watch of our beloved home and I intend to have Tania flying over Atlas Park then the servers go down. But the servers will go down. COH in its current incarnation will end.

BUT WE WILL NOT! Next Gen has always been about change and adaption and we will prove that we can do so now.

Grim Ichor made it absolutey clear that Next Gen will survive even if we have to carry every nut and bolt over by hand. We will reform in the only other game that is a viable alternative at all. It is not perfect but it is all we have and large parts of the COH community are already moving to Champions. And in the end the community is what it is all about. Also Cryptic has already started hiring Paragon Studio's dev's. They know this is their windfall and it seems they do not want to waste it.



But Champions is a whole different world and we won't ignore that. It is several years into the future with a whole different timeline. We will use this as our own setup. There will be a critical shift, Next Gen as we know it will cease to exist, the whole world ends. In this new world things can be completly different. We know Grim Ichor will be there but Tania may die with Paragon, erased from existance. So will many others. In their place new heroes will rise. Next Gen's history can be different. The whole setup can be completly changed. Some may remember the world before, most won't. Some people will be the same, others will be different. Perhaps Triple Point in this new world is a femme fatalé while Streetshark is still the same. Perhaps Lightning is a supervillain or has never existed and another person runes the academy.



There are endless ways to reinvent something that is familiar to you. And since we all incent what we do no one not even the officers of NG know what will happen. The SG itself can also change. This is our chance to renivnent everything. Are we still a cooperation working on all levels of society? Or a mutant school with no aspirations to worldy power? Perhaps we are an all adult super team? Do we still wear uniforms or are we costumed mutants like the X-Men? If do have uniforms how will they look? What will they stand for?



I don't know what I will make yet but I'm sure it will be a change to what I had so far. In any case we will do our best to keep our community alive and hope you will join us in this new chapter!

I will be there..  I already made Aeri and Neuro Boy over there...

I would be honored if Aeri could assist in some form storyline wise the transition over there, it would also help explain why she becomes somewhat different.

However I plan to be on Aeri on November 30th until the servers go dark, hopefully RPing right to the end.

Its Funny, I swore up and down I would not go to champions.  Then it hit me...maybe just maybe I could enjoy this game with the people I know and love.  So yes I'll go with you.  I have an idea in mind but will flesh it out.

I did! Which brings me to today's two points of awesome Falke advice:

1. Do not post while drunk.
2. Do not try to get used to the Champions movement during a hangover.
