Nice character so far bro, check out the character I'm currently in progress of building at the moment as well. It's somewhere around this forum section.

BTW, maybe we can team up and roam the seas, protecting it together!

@reefermadness

Thanks!

Yeah, I've actually read your character profile and thought about the exact same thing! Nothing like an Atlantean-human and a parallel-Earth shark teaming up to save the oceans!

Seems like a cool character concept. Power house of the Seas. It's good to see some fresh blood here, and a Hero at that!

Welcome to the rpg section. Hope you enjoy and have fun. If you ever have questions feel free to ask. We're a helpful bunch.

Thanks for the welcome! And yeah, Veshark does kind of resemble Mako now that I think about it, but visually there are slight differences. I'll be drawing up a sketch sometime soon to post on here.

Posted by Andy Steven Summers

@veshark: Not many people around here know who Mako is. lol

Look forward to seeing that sketch.

Lol, I actually bought CoH as a teen but I couldn't get it to work on my old PC. Years later, I learned that it went free to play and so I started on the trial. A while later the game was shut down xD

Thanks!

@veshark: I'm a CoH vet. Played it for years and got my main (Dark Melee / Shields Scrapper) set to where he could do all content on the hardest settings. He was more survivable than most Tanks. lol Was a fun game and I miss it.

@andy_steven_summers Nice. Yeah, it was quite disappointing for me when it shut down, because I was actually looking forward to playing a game that I've wanted to since I was a kid. I even kept up with the Save CoH movement to see if they were making progress.

Alas, it was not to be, but I still play the next best thing though, Champions Online.

@veshark: There are still some efforts to try and save it, reboot it. But honestly I believe it to be a wasted attempt.

I tried CO and couldn't get into it. Character creation is great, don't get me wrong. Customization is top notch. However the look and feel of the game, its setting, and their canon characters fall short. To me at least.

Played DC online for a while as well, but again it didn't have the staying power of CoH. Not to mention the game play was atrocious for it being an mmo.

Cool concept, you seem to have put a lot of thought into this. I like it :)

Posted by Veshark

@andy_steven_summers Yeah, most CoH players find it difficult to get into CO. I guess the Silver Age four-color feel can be off-putting to some, but I find it alright, personally. And yeah, DCUO was an uncomfortable play for me.

@xnahtebx Thanks! Yeah, I seem to have been hit with a sudden burst of inspiration when I wrote this. Though in fairness, I created Veshark nearly a decade ago as a kid, so there's some ideas that I came up with over the years.

@veshark: Nice, I kind of know what you mean - my character has been with me a while now, too. I like how the whole thing hangs together though, like I said: nice job ^_^

Kinda sounds like King Shark.

Badass man. Nice to see new faces exploring the Rp section.

Very good effort for a first try, your bio is more detailed than most here.

Your also a specialist, very few if any active characters are effective underwater.

Solid beginning.

Posted by Veshark

@rain_eclipse_ves Thanks for the compliments! Yeah, Veshark's strengths lie in underwater combat, so that could prove interesting.

@veshark: An excellent concept and for a first character expertly executed in terms of detail and presentation. I look forward to seeing him in action.
