What's Cookin' & What's Been Cookin'

:: some serious breakfast going on

Congratulations to Demon Force of The League of Paragon Knights for winning our first ever Screencap Scavenger Hunt Contest! Plans are afoot for the planning of a larger-scaled and open to the public Scavenger Hunt Contest. Stay tuned! Both the Gallery and the Quote Board have been updated with our most recent adventures! Check 'em out!

Welcome new recruits, Espresso Roast, Flap McJack and Totenkaffee!

:: some serious breakfast going on

Last weekend saw the happenings of 5 different supergroup events: Task Force Run Number Three - Sister Psyche, Bloody Bay Meteor Run, Task Force Run Number Four - The Terror Volta Respec Trial, the first CoB-sponsored Bio Contest and the official start of the CoB Screencap Scavenger Hunt Contest.

Wow. We certainly have been a busy little sg, haven't we? Screencaps are still making their way to the Gallery and quotes will soon be up on the Quote Board.

What with the new jackpot size of half a million Influence, The Screencap Scavenger Hunt's deadline has been extended until Wednesday, September 13. More details (and an upgrade of certain point values) can be found on the event microsite. Sign up!

:: sister psyche is psyched

Saturday saw an all-sg, uniform-clad team doing Sister Psyche's Task Force to great success! Afterwards included a meteor run into Bloody Bay in an attempt to acquire Shivan pets for the upcoming Respec Trial Task Force (today). This field trip met great success as well (despite various villainous attempts to thwart our deeds). Saturday also marked the start of the week-long CoB Screencap Scavenger Hunt Contest.

Today is the aforementioned Respec Trial and, much later, our first ever sponsored Bio Contest.

Welcome new recruit, Venus Blitzkrieg!

:: extended weekend of justice

We're gearing up for possibly two Task Force Runs during this long weekend - though Sister Psyche's TF may not happen in favor of doing a lowbie run it looks like we are go for the First Respec Trial on Sunday! Saturday begins the week-long CoB Screencap Scavenger Hunt Contest! Registration will continue throughout Saturday and until pretty much the end of the event.

Welcome new recruit, Donut Man!

:: bring it on

The Champions of Breakfast Screencapture Scavenger Hunt Contest (which runs all of next week) is attracting participants from not only our own supergroup, but members of our Coalition. What one character will win? What supergroup will he or she represent? What the hell is a Screencap Scavenger Hunt anyway?

Check out the CoB Screencap Scavenger Hunt microsite for more information! Let's not forget about the other events this weekend: possibly two Task Force Runs and a CoB-sponsored Bio Contest!

Welcome new recruits, Raisin Brave and general.mills!

:: screencap scavenger hunt contest

Open to members of the Champions of Breakfast supergroup as well as to members of our Coalition (The Atlas Park Arbiters, Cold Front - 2nd Battalion,The League of Paragon Knights and The Silencers), we are having a screencapture scavenger hunt contest all of next week. What is this? It's a week-long hunt throughout Paragon City, taking screenshots of specific items to accrue points to win a modest Influence jackpot.

This week is registation week as we determine who is interested in playing, iron out what the rules are, and try to amass a suitably-sized prize for the winner. Interested? Check out the event details here!.

Welcome new recruit, Vitamins and Iron!

:: i can't believe it's not..

Despite the fact that a lot of the growth in our membership can be accounted for in users taking on alts, we have seen quite a bit of growth in our unique and/or global count in recent weeks. What this means is that more people (and not just characters) are becoming a part of our community and more people are joining in on the breakfast-themed adventures. Thanks for coming onboard!

Welcome new recruits, Butter Side Up and Vitamin Supplement!

:: shh!

Our Coalition is growing! Each new supergroup we ally ourselves with means a whole slew of opportunities to expand our community, explore new relationships, and broaden our choices when it comes to teamups. Should sgmembers know of a supergroup which we should join up with, let The Brunch Ninja know and he will try to start a dialogue with one of its leaders to discuss such a proposition.

We welcome The Silencers to our Coalition!

:: morning caffeine

Once again, standing around in Atlas Park does wonders for our supergroup in terms of bolstering our awareness in Paragon City. As it turns out, individual members of our team have been approached by random passers-by every now and then, informing us that they've seen us on numerous occasions and thought that we were cool or that they've heard of us through someone else who has and they both think that we're cool. Pretty neat, huh?

Welcome new recruit, The Coffee Man!

:: in search of the triforce of breakfast

New events and possibly new activities (that aren't merely limited to running missions) are in the works! Be excited - it's an exciting time to be in the Champions of Breakfast, after all.

Welcome new recruits, Peach Blintz, Breakfast Link and Navi-Os!

:: surprisingly not gothy

Before you consider taking up a PUG invite, remember that our Coalition provides ample teamup opportunities. This is especially the case with our senior members who find that attaining their higher levels makes it difficult to find an sgmember to run missions with. In particular, keep in mind that some of our lowbie ranked sgmembers actually have characters of varying levels taking up residence over in the Atlas Park Arbiters supergroup.

Welcome new recruit, Biscuits 'n Grieving!

:: he was in star trek, you know..

Despite the fact that various sgmembers are taking a bit of a hiatus from City of Heroes to go on vacation or are experiencing a schedule change because of new jobs or a return to academia, the forum is still seeing quite some activity. And even if these fine people may not be able to find as much time to be in Paragon City, if they can find their way to the Internet they can still join their breakfasty brethren here.

Welcome new recruit, Frozen Frakes!

:: new alliances

Saturday's Lowbie Training was a blast! Thanks to everyone who came out! The Sister Psyche Task Force has been moved to the alternate date of September 2 and hopefully other impromptu Lowbie Training sessions will occur between now and then.

We welcome both The Atlas Park Arbiters and The League of Paragon Knights into our Coalition!

:: saturday event(s)

Saturday we're trying for parallel event action: a Task Force Run for our members of lev20 and above as well as a Lowbie Training Event. Come say hi as we have a bit of a meet & greet at the base portal in Atlas Park!

Welcome new recruit, Captain Over Easy!

:: sweet orangey goodness

Welcome new recruit Marmalade Maverick! With all this toast in our ranks, it's only fitting that we finally got some spread around here.

:: base established and unofficial site launch

Though no new recruitment occurred, huge developments were still made. First of all, thanks to the stylings of Cafe Au Lait, the Champions of Breakfast now have the beginnings of their own base! We had been accruing quite a bit of prestige as our numbers grow and now it's good to see it all put to use. Details on our base as they develop can be found over in The Kitchen.

Secondly, the Champions of Breakfast Website unofficially launches today! Though lacking in content currently, things are slowly making their way online. Upon successful population of the site, Open Recruitment can then begin.

Heroes, please help out and submit your profile information and snazzy screenshots! For more information on how to do so, please check out the profile guidelines.

Inspired by a run-in with The Belgian Waffler, The Brunch Ninja finally attains the proper security level to register a supergroup at Atlas Plaza City Hall. With the blessing of the former Juice Lord of the original Champions of Breakfast, a new breakfast themed supergroup of the same name is then founded.
