Well, I guess it happened!

I joined Homecoming in August 2020 so, a solid 16 months ago.  I have quite a few characters and I have almost never deleted any of them (though I have permanently shelved a good 10 of them over the months) and time and again, I have come here for build, ideas etc.  People probably know me as a person who loves to try a lot of ideas, and none of these ideas stuck to level 50.

 

Until tonight.

 

My Rad/Claw tank just dinged 50. This character appeared out of nowhere and just became the center of my CoH universe, I can't get enough of her.  She was the character behind this happy topic. She was grouped from just out of DFB to somewhere around 32 where I just soloed her through several arcs which she destroyed, she's just THAT good.

 

So there you go. I don't know if this topic goes here or if that warrants a topic at all (might be a bit presumptuous or self-centered of me) but hey, I want to share: My first true 50! Honestly leveled, played with heart, built with care and completely enjoyed. (I have a farmer on my wife's account but this was a product of AE and I don't use it at all).

 

I bring to you: Fabel - Natural Tanker - Radiation Armor / Claws.

 

Seven feet tall, gorgeous, exceptional athlete. Fabel had been born for the destiny Praetoria had in mind for her: honor guard, escort, personal companion to the emperor himself. Her pride rested in her own accomplishment, her efforts, her dedication to be and remain the best among the best.

 

Anti-Matter had other plans for her. With his own popularity free-falling, the mad scientist wanted to do more than promote this unique woman to the rank of the elite, he wanted to make her a mortal goddess, fit for his Emperor, a cunning plan to find his favor again.

 

So Fabel was first summoned, then detained.

 

By Anti-Matter's will, inhumanely irradiated.

 

Her power grew a hundredfold, she became equal to the superpowered beings of the Emperor's entourage. Yet, he rejected her. She was no longer pure, no longer perfect.

 

Fabel fled to Paragon City. Her future is her own now.

 

So will be her revenge.

Thanks, Homecoming for giving me a second chance at CoH! 🧡

Congratulations!!

 

I like the teal costume best. (in case you were wondering, which you probably weren't but I have a word quota to hit (not really))

I like the way you think. And the way you say it.

 

Especially the way you say it.

 

And thank you!

Congorats!

(Did you intentionally ding 50 by beating Anti-Matter?)

I like the first costume 😃

 

Yes, I started the mission mid-49 and locked my exp when I was about done.  I just felt it was appropriate 🙂

I love how she looks! The first two costumes make her look like an Arabic princess assassin. The last one is my favorite as well, the teal suit looks amazing!

 

I really like that idea! With her darker skin tone it works too!!

Sometimes the character does really grab you.  I've told this story before, but I had a great idea for a new toon (Grav/Dark Troller) and had a blast with him from word go.  Except wait second... checked my character list and sure enough, I'd already made one previously, even got him up to like 40-something?  Then just forgot about him, he never clicked right somehow, and I had forgotten he even existed.  The newer toon is of course now past 50.

Ah that feeling is one of the best things CoH can give, cheers, here's for many veteran levels to come by Fabel's side.

I really like all 3 costumes.  I like the pose on the golden one the best.  I think I need to steal some costume ideas from her.

 

Grats on hitting 50!!  It's a whole new world for you and her.

 

Steal away! I can provide costume files too if you like! Another user already asked me for one, I was super excied to get a private message, this NEVER happens 🤩😂

It's pretty much what happened with Fabel.  I made her, thinking "I need a Rad/Claw tank", played her to level ...8 I think? then shelved her for a few weeks while I played other alts.  Then I went back to "I need a Rad/Claw tank and... wait... who's that?"

And I never stopped playing her since.

Holy craaaaap this gif brings back so much forum souvenirs!! 🧡 Thanks for making me smile this morning, I needed a smile!!

 

She's already well on her Incarnated way 🙂  50 was just a number, She just keeps getting better!  Actually, 50 meant purple sets.  Being an evil marketer, I had aaaaalll the funds needed to provide. The leap in performance is... well that much power shouldn't even be legal.

Marvelous, slotting and stepping into Alpha really makes it a whole different world, so many build options too! Looking at the lore of the Well of the Furies, not sure if illegal but that much power is suspicious at best <_< , glad the gif brought you a smile, here is another classic for memory lane.

I didn't get my only 50 so far until EM finally made it to scrappers and Lady All-Star could finally be made the way I originally intended her to be.

 

When you find THAT combo, the one that works for you, it's so nice.  My own EM scrapper is parked at 49 and she ALMOST was it but I got tired of the single target method.  Fabel is smaller numbers but she's LOTS of smaller numbers over a large area at once and it's what I dig.

Gratz! Now go make an alien or Arachnos chosen one. 😛 

 

I tried 🙂  I have a low level Widow and I genuinely want to level her. Arachnos Soldiers never appealed to me, Kheldians even less. Kheldians look hard to play and as a player, well, "skilled" is not the first word that comes to mind.

Congratulations on the Big Ding.  I'm glad you found a character compelling enough to keep at her.

 

And great costumes all around.

 

 

I never thought people would like my silly costumes so much 🙂  She has two more, maybe I should post them here. 

 

Actually, I give great care to create Bios and costumes to charaters I like and I'm really thrilled that people like them! I thought about creating my "Character of the week" topic in the Artwork or the RP section but then I figured it would come up as a bit of an attention grab and I don't want to annoy people.

 

Have I mentionned that I have a slight case of social paranoia? 

 

Yeah.

You do know there is a thread where people post what they consider to be their better costumes? 

 

Seems to me your costumes pics would certainly draw notice there.

Is there some reason you did not include a data chunk?

Then I just might do that! Since I have enough costume/concepts to last quite a while, I'm still trying to decide if I should make a topic of my own but at any rate, stuff will happen!

I really really like them actually, I think you have a great sense for color composition.

 

Oh my God.  Compliments will get you everywhere. 🧡

This one wins the prize.

 

 

Thank you! 🧡 You're the fourth or fifth person to praise that one, I even had a fellow player ask me the costume file and yet, that was her basic "I'm just going to throw this together until I find a theme for her" outfit. 

 

I have similar a outfit *though the color palette greatly varies) for most of the girls I make that are not fully themed at creation: (therefore, most of my girls)

  • Tight muscular matte legs with blend shading color/same darker color so it looks like she's wearing tight velvet pants (we all have our kinks, don't judge me).
  • Discrete boots and gloves
  • Some fitting top with appropriate belt
  • No shoulders or extremely discrete ones
  • Long hair.

From then, I play the character a bit, decide on a theme, write a BG and then the costumes start coming to life.

 

It's really that simple.  I consider myself being soooo bad with the costume creator and to be frank, I don't enjoy making costumes, I just love looking at the finished result.
