I'll start of with my introduction...
The name's bitloader
although to some Unionites I might be better known as Star Jewel
. I live in the Netherlands and was born in 1980. Yes, I witnessed the rise of computers and the internet...and oh, what a ride it was.
I started playing CoH in 2005, had to unsub in 2009 but rejoined the battle when F2P became available.
The first character that I created was called Starjewel
, later rebuild as Star Jewel
and her background story was very elaborate. I had thought of everything to make sure that this toon had an extremely detailed biography including parents, siblings, schools, careers and more.
She was the first founding member of a supergroup called Galaxy Stars who later (after her death) were reformed into the Starlight Sentinels. She and her group members had detailed stories that would play along side the CoH missions, especially the TF's.
After 'the fall' I moved to playing single player games like Splinter Cell (all games), Assassin's Creed (all games) and Portal 2. I have only recently started playing Champion Online and used one of my CoH toons as a basis for a good CO toon. She is Gemstone. In CoH she was a fire/emp, fire/kin, fire/therm, fire/kin, fire/ff, fire/kin controller...yeah, I rebuild her a lot in the low levels but settled for fire/kin in the end.
She flies around in CO zones clearing the streets and helping out civs. Send a /t if you see her.
I've also been a proud member of the 1-AT groups in CoH and am still an active forumite and player with their new LLoD group who has guilds / groups in several MMO's including SWToR, CO, WoW, and others.
I once was a DJ for Evolution Radio broadcasting my show every friday evening to start off the weekend and provide some background music for long running TF's and missions.
CoH was my second life. My home away from home. The city that I lived in when I needed to get away from the real life. And in the first few months I was playing between 40 and 80 hours per week. I loved the game so much that it became an important part of my life and everybody would know about it.
Okay, that's it for now, but I might expand on this post later.
