Three more days on The Secret World TTRPG Kickstarter!

It’s done very well – most TTRPG Kickstarters do, which is something I’m thinking about – and there’s three days to go. I’m rooting for it not least because I really want FunCom to throw more resources at the MMO, which remains one of my major social activities. I have a raid scheduled for later, in fact.


…Oh, I’m sorry. Did I shout that out? My bad. Anyway, the SECRET WORLD RPG Kickstarter is actually at $101K, which is hardly shabby for a $40K project. I look forward to the next stretch goal, although not nearly as much I look forward TO GETTING THE TOKYO DUNGEONS AND THE FUSANG PvP BOARD BACK, FUNCOM…

Sorry! Sorry!

THE SECRET WORLD TTRPG Kickstarter is scheduled for October.

I expect to be backing this. I am mildly surprised that Anvil Studios is using 5e for THE SECRET WORLD; but I am also reassured. 5e is what most people play: it’s not my own favorite system, but it’s a decent one and the more people who play TSW on paper, the more people who will go check out the Secret World Legends MMO. The more revenue FunCom gets, the more new stuff we’ll get.

That’s pretty much how it goes.

The Secret World RPG Kickstarter is scheduled for 4Q 2022.

And that’s all I know.

I’ll be backing this, naturally. Anything that gets more people interested in the Secret World Legends MMO, which would means updates to the MMO. I might even be tempted to write a scenario or two for it, although it’d require me getting deeper into 5e D&D. Still, worth it for the personal satisfaction, if nothing else…

Tweet of the Day, How Did I Miss The TSW TTRPG Kickstarter News? edition.

Actually, I know how I missed the news of a Secret World TTRPG and Kickstarter. I missed it because when it came out I was off writing a novel. This is gonna be way cool.

Secret World Legends *may* be coming to TV.

Emphasis on ‘may.’ The television landscaped is littered with the bleached corpses of TV concepts.  Still:

We are excited to share the news that Johnny Depp’s Infinitum Nihil and G4C Innovation’s Gudrun Giddings have partnered to produce The Secret World, a TV series based on The Secret World and Secret World Legends! The TV series is based on the universe of the Secret World IP and centers on a team of undercover agents and the shadowy war between secret societies, the Illuminati, Dragon and the Templar. Central to the plot is the battle against the supernatural in an adventure that spans across our world, multiple dimensions, and incorporates the realms of ancient myths and legends as well as today’s conspiracy theories and headline news.

The pilot was written by James V. Hart (HookDraculaContact) and Jake Hart. Johnny Depp, Christi Dembrowski, Sam Sarkar and Gudrun Giddings will produce together with Showrunner Pam Veasey. (CSI-NY). CAA (Creative Artists Agency) is packaging.

…very cool, if it happens.  Also guarantees new content, which would be even cooler. And thank God for Conan Exiles, hey?

Secret World Legends is up! …IF you already had an account.

Those of us from the old days have a weekend to kick all the tires and whatnot before Secret World Legends launches for everybody else Monday (or maybe it’s open for all now?).  I spent a couple of hours getting through the tutorials and whatnot.  The combat does seem to be a bit different, and the skill system definitely is. On the plus side, the graphics are better, there are people around again, and we’re back to having a bunch of different currencies to manipulate for various benefits.  And yes, I absolutely missed the currency manipulation. I’m weird like that.

One thing, though: if you were previously a The Secret World member, log into SWL with your TSW account and password so that you can port over all your old vanity stuff.  Like your motorcycles and whatnot.  The in-game cash apparently ain’t coming over, though – more’s the pity.

Now, if you’ll excuse me: I need to see a person about a cabal.  Surely the League of Monster Slayers is back online…
