Hmmm... you guys seem to know an awful lot about PL'ing.
Seriously, I didn't mean to give you guys the impression that this was all with Balme. I also have a lvl 23 scrapper and a couple of other alt's that I play, so this was a question that stems from all of my time on CoH, not just with my current primary toon. Even at that, it sounds like requests for mid at 23 are rare. I wonder.
Have you ever stepped foot in Peregrine Island?
A lot of people here have high level toons, and once you hit PI and you see the blatant/rampant PL requests, you eventually get an inkling of what its all about. Besides most of us ossifers have had long discussions about PLing and what it is and how to define it because it is part of our CoC
