     Perhaps, but I was researching existing flower code stuff, rather than
starting from scratch.  Nobilis has an extensive flower code section, but the
concept has been around for a long time ("You must wear your rue with a
difference!"), and there's a LOT of stuff out there.  Rafflesia may simply be
too new to the game to have acquired any mystic rep among European-descended
     On a related note, I decided to make Acton Lord up yesterday as a
Radiation/Thermal Corruptor on City of Villains (Virtue server) and farmed
him up to L24 last night.  http://www.dvandom.com/CoX/covacton2.JPG has him
with a slightly better cape (he started with the Valkyrie cape I got as part
of an add-on pack I bought, change the 2 to a 1 to see that).

     Dave Van Domelen, figures farming is an empowering corruption of the
game, so it fit perfectly.
