Age of Volt: 10 Years Later
« on: June 03, 2013, 08:01:13 PM »
Hey guys!
 
So I was going through some of my older skins (which will be soon be archived on http://freedomforceuniverse.com), and I realized that the alternate reality event inspired by Electric Freedom's Volt happened almost 10 years ago!

Why do I bring this up? Because I think it would be awesome for everyone to revive their alt-vatar and update them to were they would be now. If you didn't have an Age of Volt avatar, MAKE ONE! It would fun see who you would be in a dystopian volt-"age".

What to do if you don't skin/skope/mesh? Draw one! Micro one! Whatever one!  This would be a fun way to revisit our Golden Age and try to reignite (or ignite) noobs into be active (which is super awesome).

Yeah, this was before my time, so any info you could provide would be helpful.

What was the story behind this, AA?

It was like Age of Apocalypse but with FR member Volt as the "Apocalypse". It was a really cool event. I tried to find any reference to it in the Archives but was unsuccessful. Thankfully Juancho's micro heroes of some AOV avatars was still online.
Here is Bujin of FXForce, Fusion (oh I miss Fusion), Lord Jay (Juancho), Afghan Ant (me - I will post my old skin tonight), Syxx (AOV C6, my personal favorite of the whole event), and Redbackdeath of Fxforce.


I wouldn't say it an "evil" version of your avatar, just a grim, gritter version of your avatar.

Wow that takes me back. I don't think I had an av for this event. Definitely did for the AoH though.

Unfortunately I think this event happened during one of the many periods I wasn't present, so I'm not familiar with it at all. I thought Volt was a hero tho?

Like all heroes he lived long enough to become the villain.
I don't remember the specifics but I remember Volt enjoyed being the big overlord.

I remember this! Wow! I still have all the avatars on disc somewhere. I think Syn skinned my alternate avatar as I hadn't started skinning on my own yet. Then he went and got killed by Redbackdeath (my av, not Syn)...

Of course C6 did a skin of him...

Hi everybody! Remember me!   :D

Wow....10 years since Age of Volt! I remember this event. I was so excited about it...but it fell flat before it really got off the ground if I remember correctly.

I can't remember too much of the background of my AV sadly. I may have his bio saved on my pc somewhere. I do remember that he lost his real eyes due to another forum AV...can't remember who though.

Anyway...here's the skin I made for him...actually this is an updated skin I did years ago...just never shown or released. Shocker I know! :P

Nice to see you around C6. That is one heck of a beautiful skin. Vivid details and really nice colors. Any chance us content hoarders could get our grubby little hands on it?  :D

Nice skin C6. You really got to release some of these old things. I'm sure we can find you some web space for this stuff.

That's because you have to damage it first.

I thought you needed a butterfly net, a spoon, and a flashlight to catch a Courtnall6.
