  1. Right. Using the trainer in your starter zone to change your costume before level 10 is free. Ms. Liberty is happy to help you perfect your look as you begin your heroic career!
  2. Okay, I can't let an owlbear reference go by without biting. A lot of D&D players look at the owlbear & shake their heads at the stupid monsters that old school developers came up with. I expect that the players in the group I was DMing felt much the same, when I ran an updated version of the classic Keep on the Borderlands for their low level party. When they came upon a chained owlbear, the players sniggered in amusement at this relic from simpler days, & the well-armored paladin went in to claim some easy xp & perhaps some phat lewt. Much to his surprise, he discovered that the owlbear was not as restrained by the chain as he expected, & the beast pecked & clawed at him with surprising ferocity & efficiency. Within moments, the paladin, despite having an AC that was impressive for his low level, was at Death's Door, & the party had to act swiftly to keep the owlbear from enjoying a paladin picnic. The paladin was so emotionally scarred by this incident, that he soon took to wearing an owlbear costume & terrorizing his enemies by night, figuring that since this beast inspired such fear in him, he should use it to inspire fear in his enemies. And so the legend of Owlbearman was born! And so, around the evening campfires, children would be regaled with tales of this fearsome creature of the night, the triune threat - the Owl, the Bear, & the Man - stalking the wicked & dispensing justice!
  3. Ukase, it is times like this that make me wonder if you have no sense of humor. 😉 TraumaTrain was making a joke, son! But it is worth pointing out that the markets are shared across factions & servers. It wasn't that way originally, & not everyone knows that it changed back on Live in Issue 18, over 10 years ago. 😮
  4. Yes. In fact coalitions now fill some of the role that SGs used to play - as a way for like-minded players to connect. Sure, each player may have his own SG & base, but these individual players can coalition together & use coalition chat to communicate & organize events just like they used to use SG chat. Double post. 😔

  6. As already noted above, they stack. You will have 65 feet of PvE stealth with this stack, which is actually better than the 55 feet you get from Invisibility. You can stand right next to most mobs & they won't notice you. And Stealth from the Concealment Pool is a nice place for a LotG +7.5% Recharge, if you are looking to fit more into your build. I find myself using the this combo on most of my characters - stealth, some +DEF, & +7.5% Recharge is a welcome tradeoff for one power (& pool) & no additional slots beyond the default one.
  7. I have a true blue Hero that is walking this same path. Thanks for blazing the trail!
  8. From a Freak bomb-setting boss: [NPC] Bob Fuse-y: The Black wire goes to the: [NPC] Bob Fuse-y: ground lead, [NPC] Bob Fuse-y: The Red wire goes to the [NPC] Bob Fuse-y: Plastique, [NPC] Bob Fuse-y: Now hear that word of C-4! [NPC] Bob Fuse-y: Them bombs, them bombs gonna, [NPC] Bob Fuse-y: Blow things up! [NPC] Bob Fuse-y: Them bombs, them bombs gonna, [NPC] Bob Fuse-y: I really love my work.
  9. Hint - Faultline arcs will not help. 😉
  10. Out of my 10 50s from Live, I have recreated 3 exactly, & 3 with power set or AT changes: Mister Mass - Inv/SS Tanker - same (but better!) Gengetsu - DM/DA Stalker - same American Aegis - MA/Shield Scrapper - same Sound Byte - Sonic/Sonic Defender - was Sonic/Sonic Corruptor Baron Wonder - Elec/Elec Brute - was SS/Elec Brute Agent Buckeye - Archery/TacArrow Blaster - was TrickArrow/Archery Defender At this point I have no plans to recreate any of my other characters from Live. My plan is to get one of each AT to 50 before I start another character with the same AT, so most of my old characters will have to wait until that project is complete. And given the fact that I level lock every 5 levels on each character in order to do all of the content on the alignment side of the character before advancing, it could be a long wait...
  11. Of course, the raises the question - who was your favorite Wacky Racer? My siblings & I all had different favorites, & would dance in our jammies when our team won. Since I was the “smart one”, I always pretended that my favorite was the inventor Pat Pending in his Converter Car, since that is what my siblings expected. But my real favorites were the Slag Brothers. Watching cavemen beat their car with clubs to make it up faster always made me laugh. “‘s’all right” 😂
  12. As a huge fan of the Wacky Races growing up, I am ashamed that I never made this connection. I thought the Lost bosses names were odd, but never thought of this show. ☺️ Thank you for pointing it out! 👍
  13. Just checked in game. It is 10. I don't know why I thought it was 8. The character I was checking on already had 9 monitored so... 🙄
  14. I just ran that mission on my villain & I can assure that he said too much... 😉
  15. Absolutely agree with the commentary above about how comic artists used other articles of clothing & the like to generate cape-like effects. To a lot of younger artists, the cape itself may have seemed passé, but the sense of movement, mood, or mystery that a cape could engender remained key elements in comic book art - so finding other means to achieve those ends were found. Raincoats, dusters, jackets, ponchos - all could be used to evoke the same qualities of a cape, but seem new & original. And I never wanted to imply that the classic cape ever died. In fact, in the 70’s, as new cape-clad heroes were a rarity, Batman artists were turning Batman’s cape practically into a character of its own. They kept exploring ways to use the cape to evoke mood & to imply that the Batman was both wrapped in darkness & using the darkness as a weapon in his war on crime. So even if we saw fewer cape-clad heroes in the Modern Age of Comics, we saw new designs that carried on the heritage of the cape - & many of the caped heroes found the cape even more imbedded in their whole style.
