New missions (South Africa, Factions) coming for Secret World Legends.

Looks promising: another mission in South Africa — but, more importantly, the faction-specific missions are coming back.  It looks like they’re going to be repeatable, and will scale up based on level; that’s kind of nice.  My character one-shotted Cthulhu the other day, and it was kind of embarrassing.

Actually, now that I think about it the whole thing was a lot like this scene: (more…)

My friend from Secret World Legends passed.

MadLyric was a good person and an excellent player; the Secret World community has always made it a point to be decent with each other and particularly the new folks, and Maddie was one of our touchstones for proper behavior.  I have never met her in person, but I was very fond of her.  My condolences and prayers for her husband, family, and loved ones.

@SecretWorldLgds announces a new contest for me to lose.

FunCom is calling the The MEGAversary Warped Songs Contest!

This contest will ask for submissions from you, the [Secret Worlds Legends] community, to take a popular song and warp it into something… wonderful! Or something funny and perhaps even hilarious! Take a well know song and subvert the lyrics to fit SWL and it’s theme, it could be anything… from “The Sounds of Violence”, to “Filth Bomb” or “Filth Pools in Kaidan”. It’s for YOU to come up with something that fits the overall melody and structure of a song and just WARP the Be-Gaiazeus out of it!

Secret World Legends’ Anniversary event starts Wednesday.

The current Tribal Cache* is going away, so if you wanted that zebra mount you better hurry up.  There’s going to be a special cache for players during the event, and after that they’re bringing back the Agarthan Cache. …And with that news comes a major collapse in the Secret World Legends commodities market.  People who didn’t sell their Agarthan Caches earlier are going to take a bath on ’em.

‘Waltzing Matilda.’

I’ve had to listen to this several times today.

Waltzing Matilda, Slim Dusty

Well, ‘had’ is a strong word, you understand. I need to be much more familiar with it. Why?  Shenanigans, of course. Shenanigans.

Come read the story I used to lose the Secret World Legends writing contest!

It’s on Patreon (for free).  I kind of felt bad that ‘Downtime’ didn’t win, until I remembered that the story is about Secret World Legends crashing to desktop, only viewed from the inside and from the point of view of my character’s Agent minions.  Yeeeeeaaah I can see why FunCom might be a little leery about rewarding that one with a free T-shirt for my main character.

Still, I thought that it was all right for a 750-worder.

So, I finished up Dawn of the Morninglight. (Secret World Legends)

This is the first real story-driven content for Secret World Legends since they put up some Tokyo missions for The Secret World. Short version: you’ve gone to South Africa in order to infiltrate a popular and organized cult in a world where every conspiracy is real, and probably up to its waist in blood. You can imagine how messed up things can get.

The good: it’s definitely new content and there’s a good, solid adventure in there. The writing’s top-notch as always and the lore’s appropriately messed up.  FunCom has thought about how to handle players who are as ridiculously over-geared and extremely powerful as I am, and the game actually managed to kill me in combat once! I was impressed.  It’s a decent first chapter, in other words. I’m glad that we got it.

The bad: needs more action missions, needs more sabotage missions, needs needs needs more investigation missions.  We also need another couple of lairs, new dungeons (plus the dungeons that still haven’t ported over from TSW), and proper PvP.  The usual complaints, in other words.  All in all, though, if you’ve played SWL before this adventure won’t waste your time.  In fact, I want there to be more of it.
