Anyone want to do some speed Baby New Year type runs during the event? Mostly my tertiary alts don't have the badge, and Snaptooth is pretty hard to solo, but if lowbies pull the missions it's easy stuff.

We have a Double XP weekend coming up, and I know there was chatter last night about possibly making a run on the Quarterfield Task Force. Level range is 40-44, if I am no mistaken, and 45 on up get auto-exemplared down to 44, natch.

I'd be up for this, but I know that this TF is hella long, so I am sounding for interest right now.

Sewer Trial?
It looks like the SG has an odd handful of level 40s right now. Is there any chance we'd be able to get together and do an Abandoned Sewers Trial sometime soon? The reason I ask is that it's pretty easy to accidentally level out of the range but it takes precisely a 38-40 to initiate it, and anyone above 40 can't. I'd like the badge on Lady A but I think she may level out of initiation range this weekend, and I assume a few other upper 30s might be interested in it.

League of MEAN full again
Hey guys -
We've manage to fill up the League again. This happens somewhat frequently these days, so I wanted to potentially discuss it. The League seems to fill up any time there is an alt surge or a trial period. This doesn't seem to happen as often to the PDA, probably because I did an idle-kick when I first took command, and because it overall seems to be a bit smaller, with Hero-inclined players naturally drifting off toward other groups friendly to us. The League seems to fill up a lot, however.

1. I think the 'kick' permissions should be changed to the top two ranks instead of only Last Boss being able to kick. This would prevent some frustration when someone needs in but the Last Boss isn't available to kick idles. Sewa (GK, who is not Last Boss anymore due to idling on it a bit), suggests we kick anyone who is fairly idle which would give us about 20 spots.

2. It might be time to consider a spin-off group for LoM runoff. I am not sure what to call it or anything. The main question is, how do we subdivide the group? I don't want to break apart the band of LoM regulars, so maybe people could sacrifice their tertiary alts to a new spinoff group to lighten the load on the main League. I'd be willing to volunteer my Stalker to head the group, since she's high enough level. I do feel a little guilt personally having so many alts taking up slots in a rather full SG, but I am not really idle on any of those alts, whereas some people are very idle or have cancelled accounts.

3. If you intend to cancel your account or know you will not be returning for some time, or do not like the alt you have rolled, it is polite to remove yourself from the group to prevent taking up space. This is particularly true if your tertiary, low-level, and also idle alts are taking up space in the group. This goes for PDA as well. I feel kicking is rude and don't like to kick you unless I know you really don't mind. So typically I will kick idle people who are also low level before kicking idle people who are higher. However, if you are kicked, there's no rule saying you can't get back in to the group when you renew your account.

Please post your thoughts, particularly on the idea of a spin-off group.

Edit: After a quick review, I have noticed that the PDA has around 70 members which means it is also approaching the limit. If you are 1) over 200 days idle, and 2) level 15 or under, you will be kicked. If you have cancelled your account and do not plan to return, tell me here so I can kick you. If you have cancelled your account but do plan to return, tell me here which alts if any are acceptable to kick.

Planning Moonfire TF next week
Jayde Chameleon did Moonfire before there was a badge available for it, and needs to do it again. PDA needs Prestige to fix our teleporters and pay rent. We're doing Moonfire next Tuesday, which is one of the few free evenings for me next week. Plan to start around 7 - 7:30 EST.

For anyone who hasn't done it, Moonfire is a 23-28 Task Force in the Striga hazard zone. You need to be at least level 23 to play, but being above level 28 is fine. We need at least 6 people to start the trial. It is versus the Council and will take a few hours. You will probably earn the Silver Bullet and The Slayer badges during this trial. You will definitely earn Honorary Peacebringer if you complete the entire thing (the one Jayde is missing).

We need at least six and seem to have four volunteers already; let me know if you're interested! (Crossposted to community and personal LJs)

AV Beatdowns

I have the Hero's Hero arc. Is anyone available this week with hi-level alts for an AV beatdown some time in the next few evenings? We can probably have SK slots available for those that want to access it from a lower level, as long as a few people have high-bees volunteering as well. My available evenings are any but Tuesday (we're doing a Maverick scene then).

Jayde is currently level 48, so the arc will be pulled at that level, but I usually run on Invincible or the next one under.

Double XPs
Hay Guyz.

This is Double EXP Weekend 2. Double XP, Double Inf, and Double Prestige. The LoM is especially desperate for some Prestige right now, so if we can put some in our coffers, that'd be great. We currently have about 50000 saved, and our overdue base rent (from December24th) is about 116000. So... yeah, we need help. :D

Hey, all.

tsyadim and jwhorfin roped me back in. If you need a 33 tanker, just give Glacial Action a ring.

PDA Business
Hello team! Several things of note:

1. The Winter Event will be starting soon . It has an add-on ski chalet and ski slope in the Shadow Shard that is accessible from Pocket D. In the chalet is Father Time, who hands out the Winter mission. Like the Valentine's Day event, heroes and villains can team up to accomplish this, so lets try to take advantage of it to create some weird teams. I know Dr. Chernobyl and Rad-Lad will be meeting up again to renew their rivalry.

2. TFs and SFs. Does anyone have one in mind? I know I'd love to do the 35-40 villain strike force (with my 35 MM, naturally) since I've never done it before, but I'd be up for just about any. What TFs or SFs are you guys interested in? There are also the respecs, which can be pretty good if everyone Reserve Sidekicks down to the max level (33 for the first one, for instance). I'd be up for either the villain or hero one for this. As for a time line, do we want to try and get one in before Christmas, or wait until after?

3. Many safeguard missions and mayhem missions have an exploration badge in them that you can't get anywhere else. If you have a mayhem or safeguard mission, you can check to see if anyone wishes to help out. Sewa and I had a good time saving King's Row from a super villain who had hired out the Skulls in order to rob the bank. Plus they tried to bomb the sewers, rob a store, and otherwise cause mayhem. We put a stop to that, though!

Hey, all. You who play at M3 might know me as Eb, Enker, or Option Yammark. I'm sorta new to the SG, and though I used to play a lot, I'm getting back into the groove on this server. Anyhow, I wanted to ask about something.

I had a great idea for a character that'd be fun to play as well as fun to RP with: A Super Strength/Invulnerability golem. So I was curious: Are there any magic-types that would like to lay claims to the golem as sort of a master?

Just throwin' it out there, seeing who's interested. :D

Task Forces
Ok, there seems to be some measure of interest for the Aurora Borealis Task Force (the chick that hangs out with the other chick in Independence Port). It's the 20-25 Task Force against the Freakshow. Unfortunately, my personal schedule for the next two weeks is pretty lousy. Working evenings during the week and a busy weekend (belated Thanksgiving on Saturday + Grey Cup Championship on Sunday) means I'd probably be unavailable until next /next/ weekend.

So, does anyone else wish to step up and lead a Task Force or two?

League of M.E.A.N. Base Upgrades
Alright! More upgrades... most of which affect /you/. (SG sigil appears to be working now...)

Salvage racks are now at the back of the base. There are FOUR racks. Each is sorted by the tabs in your Salvage Window. Rack #1 on the left (the non-arcane rack) is Components and Event salvage. Rack #2 is Magic salvage. Rack #3 is Mutant and Natural salvage. Rack #4 is Science and Technology salvage.

Please, I ask that you put the appropriate salvage into the appropriate bin... simply because it'll make it easier for everyone to find things. Especially for the Empowerment Station buffs!

Which, brings me to the next part. I've put in the arcane Empowerment Station. So we now have both types of empowerment stations... so use them! Tired of being hit by knockback? How about being confused, disoriented, hit by smashing damage, /held/ or stunned... you can buy 1 hour protection buffs for any of these and more. And you can buy Grant Invisibility! (Rumour has it, this also allows you to stealth yourself, I have not tested that yet.) You can also by Increases to Attack recharges, running speed, etc...

Also! Inspiration holders! We now have three. The one in the Medical Center has (and should never contain anything else) all different types of Breakfrees and Awakens! Don't worry about buying them now, just take them from the holder when you need them, there's over 40+ of each in it. I'll refill them as we run low. The other two holders are split between types. One has Damage and Accuracy inspirations (level 2s and 3s only, no reason to store level 1s). The other has Oranges, Purples, Blues, and Greens of level 2 and 3. I fill these as I can after various badge farming missions fill up my tray.

Finally! Enhancement Storage! I added a second enhancement rack. I moved all the 51+ SOs onto one, I figure this can remain 51+ or Synthetic HOs since they're the type of Enhancements you can't buy. The other rack still has all the other stuff on it that anyone wants to drop in it to hold.

More upgrades to come soon!

Oh... we also have a bathroom now... if you can survive getting to it. :D

Who's next?
Which Freedom Phalanxer is going to be lucky enough to have his or her tasks taken care of by the mighty Paragon Defence Association next? Numina? Synapse? Bastion? That girl that hangs out with the other girl in Independence Port?

Alternatively, there are villain task forces out there also, of which I have done approximately none of them (only the respec). I think there's an accolade for doing all of them, similar to on the hero side. Gemma posted a link to a list of them, which can be found at: http://cityofvillains.gameamp.com/cov/viewTaskForces. There's also the respec itself, though then it can be tricky getting everyone to the same level. Or everyone auto-exemplars to 33 or whatever the max is for the first respec. I know the heroes had it where even if you did the first respec multiple times, you still got another respec so long as you were a high enough level to deserve it. I don't know if this still applies, or if it ever applied to villains.

Thoughts? Time-wise I'm working evenings for the next two weeks, so a weekend works for me.

League of M.E.A.N. Base
Okay, after spending a few hours (and blowing the 6 million in total prestige just about), the base is (relatively) done!

Check it out, offer criticisms, suggestions, improvements, etc. here.

By the way. It's /massive/. So bring a map.

Manticore TF: Monday November 6th, 6:30pm EST
Per popular demand, there will be a Manticore Task Force next Monday, November 6th, at 6:30pm EST. This is a level 30-35 TF, though you can of course autoexemplar down. The main draw of this TF is that Manticore isn't Positron. There is also the fact that Crey is a pretty fun group to beat the crap out of.

League of >:( Base & TF/SFs
Hi, all.

First, as you may have noticed, Blues/tsayadim has redone the League of >:( base. It's a Circle of Thorns section of the Oranbega that we've converted to our own diabolical use. It's spooky. And it's huge. And it has a giant head in it. No trees, though. We still don't know if the base is in an orbiting space station, in the deepest jungle, underwater, in a hollowed out volcano, or wherever else it could be, though. We still have a lot of Prestige on our villain side. Blues kept lamenting during the base's construction that he didn't know how he'd spend it all. Sounds like crime really /does/ pay. It pays very well indeed! Don't listen to all those after-school specials, since they were all just lying.

Second, would anyone be interested in another task force? One that isn't as long as Positron's? On the hero side I'd be up for basically any of them. On the villain side I know nothing about them, which means they could be fun to try out since a lot of people haven't done them. The main villain I'm using is just about to hit 30+, so selfishly I'd love to do one around there. With Excise I can do anything level 41 and below, though.

Someone with knowledge about such things: What good Strike Forces are there? Level range? Are they fun? Where do you get them?

Progress Report: Base Construction
A few things... first we need salvage badly. If anyone has some on their character, please drop it off into the storage item. I've built the first Empowerment station, but can't get the really good Tier 2 and 3 Empowerment stations without more salvage.

As I said above, we now have an Empowerment station. You use the salvage from the Storage items to build temp powers that last for 1 hour. Need Knockback protection to get through a mission? How about some Smashing or Lethal Resistance? Run speed boost? Jump boost? There are a ton of different buff powers on these. When we get more salvage I'll nail together the tier 2 and 3 version which will be even better buffs.

Enhancement storages. As I commented in Lita's post, I'll be putting in 4 tables for this. Each will be sorted by level. 20-30, 30-40, 40-50, 51+/Special.

Event Salvage Storage. I'm adding a Salvage container that will just have extra Event salvage. That way if anyone needs Hallowe'en salvage they can grab it from there. I've been bouncing to Atlas Park and buying it from the lowbies for about 50k a piece.

And whereas the base was sort of barren during the initial reconstruction, it is now spruced up further thanks to the prestige we earned last night on the Taskforce.

More to come soon.
