We have a gallery!!! Holy Smokes!!! I’m going to post my Nailbunny pics as soon as possible……be prepared to see more zombie fiends than in Thriller! There’s something refreshing about being in a community that listens…muha muhahahahahah!

Another great one, guys! Regarding the Champions game, I played the pen & ink version for almost twenty years (and many of my comic book characters originated there), so I’ll definitely be giving it a try. I absolutely DON’T think it will be vamping all my attentions and affections away from CoH, however.

The gallery is a great addition to the festivities. I just wish my own screenshots didn’t come out so craptastic (I really need to stop playing CoH on my Commodore 64).

And hey, look at you two! Suddenly I’m seeing and hearing about you everywhere! What’s next? Posters of Chooch in a Speedo? Viv Fruit Snacks? (“They’re…tasty!”)

Thanks, gang. Keep up the great work!

Hey y’all (that’s for you, Viv ^_^), just gotta say it’s great that you cover the main news points, since I don’t have that much time to keep up with current news…ok, I do, but I spend it keeping up on D&D 4th edition news.

Thanks for giving us the “Headlines” on what we miss!

Y’all rock!


Hey guys! Love the podcast!

I heard in your last episode that you guys didn’t know what “mag” referred to. Just wanted to mention that “mag” is short for magnitude and relates to mezz effects in the game. Certain enemies require a certain magnitude, or mag, to be affected by effects such as immobilizes, holds, stuns, sleeps, and fears.

Normally, Minions and below require a mag2 mezz to be affected, Lieutenants require mag3, Bosses require mag4, and.. well, I forget how much Elite Bosses and AVs require, but you get the idea.

So a power like Howling Twilight with a mag2 stun means that it will only stun minions.

Again, love the podcast and just wanted to edumacate! Keep up the good work!
