  1. It's my fault, one of my characters is called Catgirl Killer. She's happy to see that her efforts are being noticed.
  2. For next month's holiday I rolled an Inv/WM (shillelagh, of course) tiny Tanker called Genghis Leprekhan.
  3. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solid_Gold_(TV_series)
  4. My Kin/NRG Brute is named Solid Gold...as in the Solid Gold Dancers. Yes, I'm old.
  5. Plenty of other fantasy-themed games out there. Not so many superhero-oriented, and most if not all of those (except this one) aren't good. So, no thanks.
  6. Now I'm disrespectful if I don't tell the devs what I want? Come on. If I had commissioned the game from them, if I were paying salaries, then you'd have a point. If I just want to play the game the way it is there's no need to try to guilt me into something else. I don't agree that they should cater to certain (or any) play styles; I don't agree that anything needs more "structure"; and I don't feel the need to tell the devs how I would do things if I were running them. I'm not objecting to anybody else making suggestions. Make suggestions all you want. But while they are creating content for others to enjoy, I don't labor under the misconception that they work for me, nor that they require my direction, nor that I am a bad person if I don't pester them with my ideas.
  7. So if I abstain does that mean I want the game to go away? 🙄 I'm not going to tell a bunch of volunteers working on a free game what they SHOULD do. I don't expect them to "support" my individual play style. In fact every play style was developed around game mechanics, rewards, and content, not the other way around, in the first place. No reason to change that.
  8. Several of my CoH characters were lifted from our ~30-year-old Champions universe. Conversely, a friend of mine did versions of a couple of his CoH toons in the Hero System when I introduced him to Champions. We still play it, the current group has been going for a dozen years or so. So my advice is to use Hero, although I guess that would make it CoH d6. 😉
  9. I think that indicates the rewarding of a costume that you've already got. Why it lights up the Enhancement tab I don't know.
  10. So it's rage against some machines. Also known as me on the highway.
  11. Demanding that everybody else shut up so that one's apparently uncontrollable offense mechanism isn't triggered doesn't exactly count as "choosing how to react".
  12. Isn't that an admission that other people are in control of your emotions? Any yahoo who knows which button to push can drive you crazy and there's nothing you can do about it? It's a Pavlovian response that's hard-wired? Okay, I guess. I prefer choosing what to worry about. If that's merely an illusion then I guess I'm a fool, but life seems to be much less exhausting this way.
  13. In this context I think there's a distinction to be made between system programmers and application developers. I'm a mainframe sysprog and yes, we document everything. The app-devs with whom I work are a lot closer to Luminara's characterization.
  14. Running a level 50 staff/RA Scrapper, Cosmic Custodian, on Everlasting. In Ouroboros I selected the Level 10-14 arc "Insert Paranoia Here" from Splice. The first mission, "The Problem with People", has as its objective "Retrieve the Resistance Message Carrier". I enter the room where the captive is and I can see her cowering in front of several Ghouls. I start attacking them and I notice that my AoE, Eye of the Storm, is doing damage to the captive. Before I realize it I've killed the captive as well as the Ghoul guards. I cleared the entire map and tried exiting, then re-entering, but the mish would not complete. I logged out for the night and when I logged back in this morning the mish was reset so I was able to complete it, being careful not to harm the captive. I just tested it with another character and confirmed that I cannot directly target the captive, but Propel affects her. That toon doesn't have an AoE at level 10, the level of the Flashback mish. I'd rather not try to recreate it with the original toon, I don't want to get stuck again. Please let me know if I've left out anything useful.

    River Rat Badge

    I finally got this badge last night. I'd been sitting at 18/19 for weeks. I went back yesterday and retraced my steps (strokes?) and it turns out I was missing #5. My guess is I wasn't actually in the water the first time I tried to get it. I made sure I turned off Flight this time.
