Join the City of Heroes

Well, not <emph>actually</emph> you.

NCSoft and Cryptic studios are offering superhero fans the chance to create one of eight non-player characters in the forthcoming online superhero RPG, City of Heroes. The contest lets players design one of The Surviving Eight, a band of heroes who, it says here, "survived the ravages of the Rikti War and dedicated themselves to training the next generation of heroes." Players are requested to send in details of the character's origins, background and super powers, and provide a detailed physical description of them, along with a picture should they so desire (this is just like Hartbeat!).

If your design is selected after the July 16th closing date, your character will be implemented into the game as a permanent character with which players will be having contact with in the game world. We've got our Crayolas at the ready.
