March Gaming – The Secret World

the secret world gaming character

In order to give you a clearer look on what I play, why I play it and how I play it, I’ve decided to focus my entire gaming time every month on one title. To start with this monthly gaming madness, I decided to pick a game that actually motivated me to start this blog. My very first post was about it, and I have been brainstorming about how to translate it to a tabletop environment. You know that I’m talking of no other game but The Secret World.

The entire month of March, I will use all the gaming time I have (which is not that much) on this title. Every week, I will fill you in on my adventures in this mysterious world, filled with zombies, Cthulhu-wannabes and mummies in slick suits. Everything can happen! The only thing that is set in stone is that I’ll be playing that brand-new character in the picture above, who happens to be a Templar and who has chosen Blades as his starting weapon. Anything next to that is not set in stone, and I would really love to hear from you, dear readers, what you want me to do with my month in The Secret World.

If you want to play with me, I’ll be playing the character “Chindividual” on the Huldra server. You will find me online in the weekends and late in the evening throughout the week. Don’t be shy, and hit me up in-game or here on this blog.

I gotta sharpen my sword and wits now, for this secret world is filled with terrors I don’t dare to speak of!

TSWoD – The secrets of the secret societies

Yeah, try saying that ten times! Anyway, welcome to another installment of The Secret World of Darkness. Today, we’ll take a look at the factions of the secret world and how to represent them best with the World of Darkness rules. We’ll be adding another WoD book to the material used, so if you want to find out what you’ll need to get from your library to bring Funcom’s world to your table, read on!

Discounts on Doomsday!

Well, considering I’m writing this post without fire and brimstone falling from an ashen sky, we can be sure that the end of days will not be today. What we will get, though, are some nice discounts on Steam. Next to some really sick prices on some really epic game bundles, The Secret World is now available with 25% discount. So, if you haven’t checked the game out yet, give it a spin for just a bit more than €20 (or whatever currency you’re using). Trust me, supernatural monster hunting and conspiracy-solving was never this fun!
