    I DIDN'T

    BUT IT USED TO BE FREE

    wonder what happens if I unlock a character with those pieces already on

    It didn't used to be free. It used to cost a monthly fee.

    wellllllll kind of

    when I had it, I had been invited back by the game because I was a previous subscriber, so although it was free at the time, it's not something I can be genuinely upset about seeing as though it was a trial offer

    ain't gonna stop me though pfft

    nuuurrrrrrggghhhh

    27 tokens

    Can reward tokens be purchased with Paragon Points bought in their store or are they earned via VIP subscriptions?

    This post took me so long to put together like last year I saved it

    There's more alts now but ain't got the time atm to add em in
    Behold: The Encyclopedia Scooterica!

    First off, of course is Scooter. Force Field superspeedster mutant, uses his powers for fame and celebrity. (FF/Energy Defender)
    Scooter1.jpgScooter2.jpg


    The Shining Spirit, former cop and martial artist who was given mystical artifacts by her master, giving her great speed, strength, regeneration, and flashy yellow skin whenever she puts them on. (MA/Regen Scrapper)
    Shining1.jpgShining2.jpg


    The Sable Spirit, (non-identical) twin sister of Shiny. Born with the mutant powers of psionics and blue skin, she never quite cut it as a hero until joining with the Warshade Sabelion. (Warshade)
    Sable1.jpgSable2.jpgSable3.jpg


    The Aegis Phantom, a disciple of the Japanese mystic school known as the Path of the Living Light. She summons light elementals to fight by her side, and can manipulate light as if it were a solid object. (Illusion/FF Controller)
    Phantom1.jpg
    Phantom2.jpg


    Nordic Golem, a Viking smith who was tricked into creating a cursed axe, and was then murdered by it, transforming him into a mindless stone golem. After his axe was recovered from a collection of Hellion artifacts, he has since done the bidding of Power's Allegory. (Stone/Axe Tank)
    Nordic1.jpg
    Nordic2.jpg


    Lady Threnody, Praetorian of Operative Threnody. Born into a family of privilege and powers, she always wanted powers of her own. Unfortunately, the doctors she hired to give her cybernetic upgrades went far further than she had agreed to, losing most of her limbs, skin, and organs in the process. Humbled by her loss, she joined the Resistance to fight against those who believe in power at all costs. (Elec/Elec Dominator)
    LadyThren2.jpg
    LadyThren1.jpg


    Lady Parabellum, trained to be an assassin from birth. She fled her order after being upset at being unable to choose her own targets, and has become a vigilante so that she can kill without worrying too much about her conscience. She loves to shoot things, and she is very, very good at it. (DP/Psi Blaster)
    LadyPara2.jpg
    LadyPara1.jpg


    La Espina, a Columbian mutant born with great control over plant life. She was 'bought' at a young age by the drug cartels to create faster-growing, more potent crops, and later to act as an assassin. She became a free agent mercenary after Hollywood Nocturne killed her bosses, but has never enjoyed her life of crime and is working to redeem herself. (Plant/Thorns Dominator)
    Espina1.jpg


    Alraune (aka "Blind Al"), a Germanic archer who was promoted to the ranks of the Valkyries in death. However, she wouldn't shut up about how the Valkyries ought to be doing more on Earth to help the mortals, and was eventually blinded, bound with Fire Giant chains, and banished for her annoyances. Someone must've liked her, though, as she can now sense her targets with even greater accuracy, and even control the flames. (Archery/Fire Blaster)
    Alraune.jpg
    Alraune2.jpg


    Shapshu was once a fire sorceress, until she was chosen to become the avatar of the Canaanite Sun Goddess. For centuries she has done her bidding, and these days is investigating why an avatar of Lotan has become active in the Rogue Isles. (Fire/Thermal Controller)
    Shapshu.jpgShapshu2.jpg


    By day, he is a mild mannered President.
    B-Rock1.jpg

    But by other times of the day...
    B-Rock2.jpg

    He. IS. B-ROCK SUPERALLAH!
    B-Rock3.jpg


    Sarah Helms has been many things in her life. She was once the Battle Medic, a pacifist healer, but after being abandoned to a 5th Column prison for several weeks, she turned to a life of vigilantism and psychosis. First in Paragon (AR/Dev Blaster):
    H-Judgment3.jpgH-Judgment1.jpgH-Judgment2.jpg

    Then in the Rogue Isles, after forcing a few minor gangs to aid her at gunpoint (Thugs/Traps MM):
    V-Judgment1.jpg
    V-Judgment2.jpg

    However, after spending a few weeks in the hospital and losing her eye in a fight with a future Lord Recluse, she came to terms with her life and re-devoted herself to heroism as a Longbow Warden (MA/Shield Scrapper):
    Ward-Justice.jpg


    Overlord Slider is the Praetorian version of Scooter. Instead of turning his force fields to defend others, he focused them on turning himself invincible. Like Scooter he desires adoration and power, unlike Scooter he enjoys causing pain to get it. (Energy/Energy Brute)
    Slider2.jpgSlider1.jpg


    Splendid Spirit is the Praetorian version of Shining Spirit. Also a PPD veteran, she instead took her artifacts from her master and turned him in for being resistance. Her artifacts are slightly different, and instead allow her to move more swiftly through time as she fights. (KM/WP Scrapper)
    Splendid1.jpgSplendid2.jpg


    Operative Threnody always wanted powers, and volunteered for an Arachnos Super Soldier power to get them, in the form of Sonic abilities. However, her program's funding was cut, her powers taken, and she was reassigned to the Blood Widows. Angered by this, she now pushes the limits of her authority to take back as much power as she can get. (Widow)
    Op-Threnody1.jpgOp-Threnody2.jpg


    Lotan, an avatar of the Canaanite serpent God of Sea and Storms. Lotan was annoyed by the presence of the Coralax in his oceans, and sent his avatar to learn more about them, and destroy them if necessary.
    Lotan1.jpgLotan2.jpg


    Huntress Fenja, a Nordic Frost Giant who has long hated mankind. She fights now for Arachnos as they value combat and warfare, but she existed before them and expects to exist for long after. (Bane Spider)
    Fenja1.jpgFenja2.jpg


    Hollywood Nocturne, former black ops agent turned mercenary. He lost all sense of patriotism after killing many considered to be heroes in southeast Asia and South America, and went freelance. His powers come from a variety of sources gathered by Malta, and allows him to convert himself to a form of black smoke, giving him the ability to fly, regenerate, and create concealing clouds. (Merc/Dark MM)

    I think one of my favorite characters was a villain named The Infamous Heir and he was a little chinese kid whose mobster parents had been killed by his extended family and so he wasn't going to get any of his parents cash or power

    so he and his team of ninjas set out to be crime lords

    Yeah, you've been able to before this Freedom shit.

    You unlock slots at level 20, 30, and 40. During the Halloween event you can get special salvage that can be turned into a slot. You can unlock or buy a bunch more, though.

    You can also have two different builds you can switch between, but that has nothing to do with costumes.

    Matter in what way?
    City of Heroes and City of Villains have basically been one game for a while now

    It matters if you wanna team up with people.

    Heroes don't team up with Villains except during special times

    Rogues can join Villain SGs, and do missions based around working for cash

    Vigilantes can join Hero SGs, and do missions based around letting people get hurt/do hurting in the name of the greater good

    B) make a hero
    C) get to 20

    they're earned with both

    once a month you get a token, and every...$15? maybe? you spend in the store you get a token.

    and that's cumulative, so if you buy money on three separate occasions and it eventually adds up to that, you get a token

    aaaa deciding on a character

    my fire/sd scrapper feels an awful lot slower than my fire/sd brute did if the brute has any fury at all coming into a fight

    he's only level 7 though so I assume there's some reason later on for everyone being like "scrappers better than brutes beep beep beep"

    Although some of the new starting Hero content lets you make some choices that are a little morally iffy.

    Like icing a bad guy instead of taking him alive at the end of an arc and stuff.
