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. Continue reading The TSW Database is doing a pledge drive.
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.

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

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.

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.
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.
