MachinstClothes Make The Hero

Sunday, March 21st, 2010

Miyoko told me to meet her at 9:00pm at Paragon Dance Party. That gave me a couple of hours to get ready. I phoned ahead to Icon to see if they could work me in, and they said they could, as long as I kept it simple. I bounced over to my apartment, took a […]

Ward OhmHome Alone

Tuesday, May 20th, 2008

We took another cab to my apartment – the address was in the paperwork Ms. Moreira had given me. It was in Kings Row, and smelled of soot from the factory down the block and old cabbagey cooking smells. A small studio apartment for me and my worldly goods! I put the entirety of my […]

Ward OhmGoing To Icon

Tuesday, May 20th, 2008

We arrived in Steel Canyon, and Mr. Marcus got us a taxi. I didn’t fit well in the back seat, but it wasn’t too long a trip. The cab driver talked constantly, leaning around to look at us. I wondered how he drove without wrecking the car, but the trip was really without incident. A […]

MachinstGlum Rainy Day Thoughts

Wednesday, February 28th, 2007

It’s a murky day today, raining and wet. I don’t wear the cape on rainy days, it gets waterlogged and heavy, and makes leaping strange. I called a contact, and he told me that I was the focus of a bunch of precogs’ dreams. That never bodes well. They see me stopping a war, and […]

Ward OhmCat-girl In Skyway!

Monday, February 12th, 2007

It took another hour in Ms. Moreira’s office to get the paperwork done. Mr. Marcus came down and helped, and they took care of a lot of things. Most of what I had to do was listen and agree sometimes. It was easy, and I hoped things would continue to go so well. We finished […]

MachinstFreakshow… ugh.

Wednesday, February 7th, 2007

Lately it seems everywhere I go, there are members of the Freakshow. It also seems they usually want to try and hurt me. If you haven’t heard of the Freakshow, consider yourself lucky. They’re nuts. And dangerous. And destructive.

Ward OhmI Become Ward Ohm!

Wednesday, February 7th, 2007

Brighid Moreira took me to her office. We sat down and she told me about heroes. I listened. She is quite a storyteller, when she wants to be, and I was captivated. She talked for most of an hour about what heroes do, and why Paragon City loved them. She told me about Mr. Marcus’ […]

Ward OhmParagon City At Last!

Monday, February 5th, 2007

We arrived in Paragon City late at night, after a delay that slowed us down for several hours. At first, the city did not look much different than others, and I was a little downcast. I was expecting another set of worried and distrustful looks at a hotel, and then to be, at best, ignored. […]

Stone and ice!

Friday, December 9th, 2005

Paragon City is a big place, full of all sorts of crime. I’ve met a bunch of big-time heroes who are fighting giant robots and saving worlds and things. Some of them are really nice people, and some are… not so nice. That kind of work isn’t for me, though. I’m here to get the […]

MachinstThe Saga of Velvet Sheathe and Ultraamann

Tuesday, June 21st, 2005

((Originally posted 21 June 2005, on the City Of Heroes forums in the “Are you talking about U-Mann? I know U-mann …” thread.)) An amazing man, our Ultraamann. Have you met Velvet Sheathe? You know, the seven foot tall, fearless, mostly naked sword-wielding blue cat-girl who claims to be his queen, yet is never seen […]
