"Going Rogue"
 
   Rouge? one of those two.


ANNNNYWAY.

While I understand that your current finances are such that your not playing CoX G, have you been keeping up with the state of the rat as far as new issues?

The reason it happens to come to my mind is its always been established that 'General' Rossum is a villain only because circumstances conspired against her. Under Going Rogue its possible for 'bad' people to redeem themselves just as good folk will go bad...

When you have the funds to return to the game, would this revive your interest in playing Jen the MM, with intent to redeem her? I seem to recall you'd moved her off of your prime playing server (Virtue, I think) to free up space...

just things that make one go hmmm.


Of COURSE you wernt expecting it!

No, you were right, it's "rogue". "Rouge" (pronounced, roughly, roozh) is French for "red". It's the second-most-made typo on the CoH boards after "villian". :)

Yeah, I'm aware of GR, and while what I've seen as far as pre-release hype is intriguing, I'm still a bit annoyed with Paragon Studios for building a paid expansion around something that should have been a core release feature of City of Villains.

That said, it's certainly possible that Jen will make something of a comeback once it hits the street (or, well, more likely some time after it hits the street, when it hits the discount rack). I came up with a workaround long ago by developing the Torch of Victory, but there has always been part of me that would rather have seen the original black-clad Jen and her boys taking it to the bad guys straight up.

Of course, then there would be two heroic Jens, but what the hell, I mean, there was a DC Comics character back in the '80s who was something like two heroes and three villains at the same time.

That's a bit of a pet peeve right there. I'm reminded of a quote from one of the Order of the Stick prequel books ("On the Origin of PCs"):

"Well, uh, Haley, is it? It says on your application here that your class is 'rouge'. Assuming you are not actually a cosmetic applied to the cheeks and you thus meant to write 'rogue,' what kind of experience do you have?" -- Roy Greenhilt

Though it occurs to me that, if you turned it around, the musical Moulin Rogue! would probably be pretty funny.

And now I have this image of a huge-ass windmill sneaking up behind someone, stabbing them in the back and stealing their money.

:blink, blink: Um, there was? Who? The only ones who I recall, that I think could pull that off, were Batman and the Martian Manhunter.

Mark Shaw, the 1980s Manhunter. And the Privateer. And the Star-Tsar. And Dumas. He was a hero, villain, and otherwise under the first name, a hero under the second, a villain under the third, and another villain under the fourth (but later they retconned that last part into an undercover operation).

Compared to him, Jen Rossum's life story is simplicity itself. :)

   Wow. Thank you, I think I'll go look him up.
