Yay (on balance)! Daylight Savings Time starts tomorrow.

The bad news: everybody has a screwed-up schedule for the next week or so, or possibly six months (some people just can’t handle the circadian shift). The good news: this makes it easier to sync up lair raids in my MMO (Secret World Legends). The AUS/NZ folks will be ending their DST in April, so starting tomorrow the USA morning players will be interacting with the Aussie and Kiwi nighttime players an hour earlier from the latter’s point of view. It gets more pronounced (and convenient) when the EUR players activate their own DST at the end of the month, allowing for a sweet spot for morning USA / early afternoon EUR / prime time evening AUS/NZ play.

Group Scenarios coming back to Secret World Legends.

Well, we never had them in Secret World Legends. Just The Secret World. Which is sort of like SWL, and sort of not.

Still:

Group scenarios are a lot more fun then duo scenarios, in my opinion. I look forward to running some more often.

The TSW Database is doing a pledge drive.

This is one of the major — or maybe the major — hints and tips sites for the Secret World Legends* MMO.  I believe that a couple of people here at least play it, so no harm in putting it up for them. I play the game daily, after all. (more…)

It’s Christmastime at @SecretWorldLgds!

And my God but the Investigation mission that they dropped.  This was one of those where you had to download a substitution cipher app to read the clues — read all the clues, friend — to figure out the passwords to advance the mission and then… well, no spoilers.  Secret World Legends prides itself on making cheerfully insanely difficult Investigation missions, and this one certainly qualified.  Lots of fun; it took me two hours to figure out how the cipher alphabet worked.

No, that wasn’t sarcasm.  Although it might have been if I had given up.  But I wasn’t going to, so winning was fun.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Krampusnacht…

Looks like nothing new on Secret World Legends before the Christmas event:

Tweet of the Day, This Was My Morning edition.

They thought it was funny to not put a helpful “JUMP HERE” sign…

…for the latest Secret World Legends content.  Managed to miss the podium and instead jump into the abyss something like seven times.  Admittedly, it was funny.

Bonus poem at Patreon.

It was for the Secret World Legends poetry contest, which is why it may seem a bit obscure.  Still, I rather liked writing it.  PDF at the public Patreon.

Have you embraced and chased the Broadcast’s Lord?
A hiss of static truth, Presenting lore
Profoundly hid in math’s relentless chord,
Placed close to deaths; which warns what is in store.
You’ll search in graves, walk with the restless dead
Half-trapped between this clumsy world and next;
And when their numbers burn inside your head
Look then to get a sane man’s frantic text.
Long trip you’ll make, to vampire-haunted lands.
On Gaia’s quest you’ll be, to put down ghosts
Who picked unholy halls to make their stands;
Excise them all, confront their tattered host.
Extend this Age’s grasp, and end His reign.
No dead may rule. Not even at Samhain.
