Create My Champion: Week zero

Kyle Horner

With beta and launch only a month away, I thought it would be fun to do a temporary weekly feature not unlike our popular Choose My Adventure series but for Champions Online. The difference here is this feature will focus on the character creator, power sets and travel powers. You tell me what kind of wacky character to create and I'll do my best to put it all together and snap some awesome screens!

Read the details after the break.

So here's how it'll work. Since Champions Online allows for tons of creativity, there aren't too many restrictions beyond the obvious stuff:

  • Has to be humanoid
  • Nothing directly copyrighted
  • Try to keep it clean.

With this being the first week, there's sadly nothing to show off. So instead, we'll get straight to the requests.

Simply leave a comment with what you'd like to see me make and I'll pick character ideas based on popularity. If you'd really love to see a fellow commenter's character idea made real, leave a comment letting me know and it'll go into the tally. In the case of ties, a random winner will be chosen. Also, in the case that only bits and pieces are requested, I'll merge them all together for maximum strangeness.

Next week I'll report back with images of our collective creation, including a full rundown on the character concept plus their powers. I'm looking forward to seeing what kind of superhero Frankenstein we create!
