Welcome to the World of Valiance Online
Valiance Online is a spiritual successor to City of Heroes, the beloved and highly successful superhero MMO. Heavily inspired by the original, but with many original elements, Valiance Online will offer fans of City of Heroes a familiar return to the city they love, with new and unexpected details that will enhance and expand their experience.
Heroes and Villains
What makes a hero, or a villain? Is it simply a matter of good and evil, right and wrong? In the world of Valiance Online, the answers are not always easy. Covert operations, corporate espionage, widespread corruption; problems such as these hardly register in a world that has created its own demons, where unchecked scientific and technological advances have run roughshod over a society completely unprepared for their ramifications.
The State of the City
In this world, along the Delaware coast there was a city exactly like any other, called Pendulum City. It boasted no great buildings, or cultural landmarks, no great historical figures; it simply existed. That is, until they arrived. The arrival of, and subsequent war between, two super powered beings would shape the city—and the world—in remarkable ways, both constructive and destructive.
Now it is 2093, and nearly 150 years of advancements inspired by these two beings have transformed the world into a scientific marvel, with Pendulum City at its center. The miracles of science allow super powered beings to be made or born with equal ease. Weapons and armor are now limited only by the imagination, not by things that go boom. Anything is possible for the person with the means to pay for it.
But all the advancements that were meant to enrich society have broken it instead. The separation between “haves” and “have nots” has never been worse. Those without the super genius to create super weapons, or the money to buy the latest technology, are left to fend for themselves by whatever means they can. A lack of direction among the youth has created an underground network of gang activity capable of overpowering law enforcement with ease.
In these times, those with the ability can make a real difference with their choices; you could be one of them. The question is, what choices will you make? Will you take on the corruption, the super criminals and gangs, to help the people? Or will you exploit the problems, using the conflict for your own enrichment?
The choice is yours.
Welcome to Pendulum City. Welcome to Valiance Online.
