Although this is about saving CoH you may as well save some money at the same time, if you use the site listed by Maressa, use the Promotional Keycode WELCOME15 for 15% off your order. Still deciding where to get mine from.

I can't find a green cape with a red interior ANYwhere online or in shops...needs to be fairly long, but not floor-length....

If someone can acquire one for me, I will GLADLY don it in support of this idea!   8)

Blitz it is kid size but this one is green/red:

I'd like to suggest that the capes and masks that you send in are kid-friendly and kid-sized if possible.

The reason is that when companies receive mass mailings of items like this they usually donate the items to a needy charity.  I'm sure CBS donated the over 3 tons of nuts (sent to them by fans to save Jericho) to a food bank.  The CW also received more than 10,000 Mars bars to save Veronica Mars.

We (or at least I) don't know the culture in South Korea but I would hope that any capes and masks that are not easily ripped (such as paper) will be donated to needy and/or sick children.

In fact, being that we are supposed to have until the end of November to play, it might be nice to purchase and/or make some capes and masks for the express purpose of donating them on behalf of the City of Heroes community.   I think I'll make that its own thread. =)

Oy, why couldn't NC Soft be UK-based? The post office is going to be making a mint out of me.

Totally. Worth. It.

It'll be ramen for me for quite a while. Hopefully we can make it worth it!

Anyone here from Australia? I'm not familiar with how Australia Post works with international posting and shipment.

Please guys, do not send them to the UK office. They are a very small group and have less than nothing to do with City of Heroes. Tony and I picked the three we did because of their relation to City of Heroes.

I found this cape pic and am going to create/print one for each of my characters, then mail with a brief letter.
The plain cape:



My first finished one:


Listen to the 'mustn'ts'. Listen to the 'don'ts'. Listen to the 'shouldn'ts', the 'impossibles', the 'won'ts'. Listen to the 'you'll never haves', then listen close to me... Anything can happen . Anything can be.

Gotcha. I have a friend who works in the Texas office, too, so this amuses me somewhat. He's a GM on ..er..I want to say Aion, but honestly I didn't pay much attention when I found out it wasn't CoX.

Maybe they'll hand out masks to the employees and they can wear them as they work :D

Wait... you mean the Austin building?  The server farm that used to be Destination Games?

You know someone with physical access to the building?

...  I don't like where this is going Jack.  It could easily backfire, I think.

Be sure you've thought out all the complications on it and worst case ramifications before you do ANYTHING, please.  Last thing we want to do is shoot ourselves in the virtual foot here.

Oh, yeah, definitely.  I wouldn't want to get CoH double-cancelled.  That would be awful.

I found something perfect at Walmart today.  A Simply Hero mask and cape intended for a stuffed animal.

It's very cute, and might just save on shipping. 

(Had to get an extra for the little one's stuffie...)

Love the idea!

Does anyone have a link to the old coh forum/web page where you could download the COH artwork pack - it had the font, wallpapers and the AT symbols in it.

Many thanks for any help

Sorry to bump this post - anyone have a copy of the files Ive asked about?

An interesting idea, I'd just suggest folks keep it simple and small. Don't make it hard for them to deal with or the campaign will just annoy rather than help.

Beyond that, why not make our own costume drive for charity? We have no real certain idea what NCSoft will do with such items sent to them. But if the community did something on its own, we'd know some good came of it. I'm not really sure what charity would be best for this but I'd strongly suggest it be a large and very visible one. The idea here being to both do a good deed and get maximum publicity out of it for the cause.
