Week in review

Another CoH Play Update, yes, however…
This week, I also sent out stuff for running a Heroquest game, and a Risus game — both in January… so… woo đŸ™‚

Hang Time
(Level: 50)
No play or RP.

(Level: 48)
No play or RP.

(Level: 33)
No play or RP.
Still haven’t met “The Tactician” — Strategist’s “student gone BAD”.
Having a lot of trouble getting into this character’s head — I feel like I took him somewhere he was meant to go, but along a path that is strange and hard to travel for me.
Dunno. Need to think about that.

(level: 32)
No play or RP.

(level: 19)
No play or RP.

(Level: 22)
No play or RP.
What’s the influence-to-dollars exchange rate on Ebay, again? đŸ˜›

(Level: 17 18 ((new)))
No RP, but I did get to tank tank for an ArchVillain-hunting Storm Knightish group this week with some other folks who did all the actual work, and watched Kessa ding level 50. (I dinged the somewhat less exciting levels of 17 and 18.)
I like playing this guy, even though he “can’t herd as was as a rad/dark defender.”
I just like playing tanks. It’s my thing.

Shade Dancer
(Level: 14)
No play or RP. Head (and tentacles) are on the chopping block.

(Level: 12)
No play or RP.

(Level 13)
No play or RP.

Thadeus Shiver (Ice/Ice Dominator)
(Level 6)
No play or RP. I like the RP I had with Kate’s character, but at the same time I actually found him a bit easier to play as an Ice/Storm Controller. We’ll see.

Markov Chain
(Level 11 12 13 14 15 16 17: ((New)))
Obviously, I played Markov a lot. đŸ™‚ Yes, it was farming the Christmas Present mission for xp for level 11 to 15, but it was dangerous, I put myself at risk, got ganked multiple times and generally *worked* for this PL*. Level 16 and 17 came in the Strike Force that we did on Sunday so try to tell me we didn’t work for that. Bleah.
Love this archetype. Blastery damage and some support = good stuff. He’s level 17 now and hasn’t started on the Stamina line, but honestly? Not sure he will — I might just drop one endrdx in every power he has and see how that works… 2 acc, 3 dam works for the attacks, after all.
Awesome combo with Stalkers, now that he’s got the Concealment pool. Snipe target, hide, queue Siphon Power, guy comes around the corner, Siphon Power kicks off, Stalker-partner taps Build Up and hits for obscene amounts of damage. Much fun.
Good: Every power from the AT is an attack of some kind. No forcefieldish things to renew (with one “ugly” exception).
Bad: Every power from the AT is an attack of some kind. Slotting with enhancements is EXPENSIVE.
Ugly: Increase Density — great power, stupidly short duration. Every other shieldish power in the game has a 4-minute duration; why not this?

Lucian Strange
(Level 14: ((New)))
Broadsword/Regen scrapper. Lucian is coming in as the long-missing husband of another player’s character — not sure exactly what happened to him or how, just yet — I’m focusing on RPing his actual personality right now (Lucian is a Chick. Magnet. I mean, daaaamn — never seen anything like it.), and getting him leveled up to his past-future was-wife.

Some kind of Mind/* controller for FOUND house — a reformed member of the Lost, modeled off the look of the guys who wear the football helmets and the STOP signs on their chest. Still no idea what secondary to pick, though. I actually might go with trick-arrow — I like the sort of neo-luddite, “I don’t trust any tech, after what the Rikti did to us”, feel.
Dunno. Need to delete a champion character before I can make this guy up anyway.


  1. Puck ? Grav/ff cont ? 44 ((New))) Lots of Game play and RP. The Kessa Dinging 50 point set in motion a bit of that characters back plot that has been hinted at for like 3 months now. Can?t wait to see what happens since so much of what has happened has been unexpected for both of the players. That and the interaction between the two has modified what the PoKessa was going to do with the toon story wise has also been fun. I have two ongoing board threads that will hopefully end some time soon.
    Yes! 44th and a new power! Puck finally has a defense?that also includes defense againt Psych! Woot!
    RP wise there has been a lot of strife on CC with the return of Reese, and the general stupidity of Grave Spider/interloper/Gatebreaker/Sunraid/Juggynaughty. So, RP wise Puck was chastised by Sword and has been banned from using nicknames and humor on CC. This will allow me to ignore CC while on as Puck. It also had one of the more funny and touching moments that I have seen in awhile. 76 (best damn RP?r out there IMHO) after hearing of this announced on CC that he was going to change his name to Poppa Bear so Puck could continue to refer to him by that nickname. Very Touching.
    Also, it as amusing to me that only a two people commented back to me that it was odd that Puck was calling people by their Code names instead of her Nicknames for them.
    Zazi ? (Katana/SR scrp ? 36) Some RP, and the Christmas mission. I love, Love, LOVE playing Zazi Tank after playing Stalkers.
    Ciunas – (Dark/Dark scrp ? 22) Christmas Mission. Still a very squishy Scrapper. But now that she has Obsidian Shield, she rocked against the Night Widows and the Seers in the Christmas mission.
    Zot ? (Claw/Ninja ? 24) Some Game play. Started a new Chalmers arc that leads to two more Temp powers. Can’t wait.
    Gasta ? (Dark/Therm Corr ? 17) ((new)) Lots of game play and some RP. Ran him through the SF where I pretty much had him set on perma heal and tentacles. I was the cause of one TPK, which I feal bad about. But I was very thankful to Merry and Incendrix for giveng me plenty of time to rez them.
    19 ? (Merc/Traps MM ? 17) ((New)) I am still loving this build. He rocks. Used Acid Mortar to great effect while going up against Shivan last night.
    Bane of Asgard ? (Dark/Fire Brute ? 7) No play with him this week.
    Venenata ? (Plant/thorn Dom ? 11) Some play, and Seeds of Confusion has been very, very good to her.

  2. Oh…
    Forgot about Dubh and Ike.
    Ike – (10 Power/nin Stalker), No Rp and just the Christmas mission.
    Dubh – (20 Dark/Dark Defender) Tried to do the Christmas mission twice with him but the Damn Hacker had other ideas…so hopefully tonight I can run him through it.

  3. Footnote:
    * – I would like to thank my wife, without whose ability to Stand Outside Her Christmas Mission While AFK, my PLing efforts would not have been possible.
    * – I would like to thank PoGhost Who Walks, whose ability to teleport me around to keep me from dying quite as much.
    ((Also, thanks to PoIncendrix — his mission was buggy, so we couldn’t use/abuse it the same way as Merry’s, but he did offer up his toon to the cause, and had to give up his level 7 “clear the snakes from the speakeasy” mission to do it!))

  4. Poor Incendrix, getting to miss out on beating up on Snakes. Some day he’ll have to actually go back and finish Mongoose’s missions.
    Damn. I haven’t been on with any of my characters much in the past week or so. Been kind of blegh and anti-social I guess.

  5. Whoa, you’ve got spam. This may even be spam, spam, spam, spam, eggs and spam.
