Opening A Secret World Chapter for Invicta

As many of you know, I've been tossing around from game to game for a while looking for something that inspires me. After a lot of consideration, I've finally settled on the Secret World, a modern horror MMORPG by Funcom. TSW is the game I've often returned to (because its free to play) when I needed a break and wanted to play an MMO solo. Well, I've decided its time to end the solo part. I'd like to invite any current member, past member or friend of Invicta to come play.
There are some pros and cons to Secret World, of course:
Pros:

  • Realistic graphics (a must for me)
  • Engaging gameplay and story-driven quests
  • A strong, active RP community
  • Endgame content (though see below)
  • Free to play and subscription models available
  • PvP Content
  • Rich and complex character advancement/abilities (points-based, not class-based)

Cons:

  • No guild or player housing (and, to my knowledge, no plans to insert it)
  • Most Engame Content is behind a paywall
  • Very complex character advancement/abilities (this is what lead me to not play it originally, but I got past this)
Cabals (guilds) are faction-based, so I've set up three Cabals with interwoven storylines:
  • Ordo Invicta: Templar. This is the 'main' Cabal. The basic idea is a secret knighthood dedicated to rooting out people within the Templars who have fallen to corruption. Contact me on Noctiferius for more information (and more will be posted soon).
  • Invicta Motorcycle Club: Dragon. If you played with us in Fallen Earth, you know what this is about... an outlaw motorcycle gang that plays hard, fights hard and lives hard. Contact me on DaReapah for more info.
  • Invicta Security Company: Illuminati. This is a modern private military organization, looking for soldiers, support and logistics personnel. Contact me on Ptolemi for more info.

If you're interested in playing (whether you end up playing or not), post a reply here and I'll give you access to the forums. I'll be updating the website with more details as we move forward.

Hmmmm...

I liked my time in TSW in the past, and thought of returning.
Jela has met my character I had there. A Dragon, named Candice "Kandy Kane" Khan.
I'm not sure if I would return as her, or roll a new character, but I would definitely love to get back in some good old RP with my old Invicta friends.
Convince me you all want me back, hehe. *HUGs*
If anything, it'd be a varient of Wichi, depending on which faction I was in.
Edit: I've been away from MMO's, but have always wanted to revive (w/o a cloner, LOL) my old character Wichita somehow. I loved playing my little misfit, and this "might" be my chance to do so.

I like the game but I'm

I like the game but I'm putting down MMO's for awhile. I came to the decition that they were just not interesting for me right now... How did I come to this you might ask? I re-subbed WoW with the new expantion and had FUN getting my character to 100... That's when you know you might have hit rock bottom.

I know the feeling.

I know the feeling.
Was in RIFT, with a max-level PvP character, and was frustrated with all the "changes" to the game they made, making PvP almost obsolete unless you raided PvE for gear. Tried the abysmal game of Archeage. Another screw up of Trion.
Tried going back to GW2, but felt the same.... the old, "I've already done this once before".
Wanted to redo Age of Conan, but hear it's dead if your are not max level... and I can't afford a sub for the new content.
Thought about SWTOR, but the limits on F2P are a turn off for me.
Tried a few times coming back to Fallen Earth, but it feels so dated now, and the RP is hit-and-miss.

Anyway, I remember the RP was good in TSW in the past. I'm still iffy about returning. But if enough people decide to go there, I may give it another shot. *shrugs*

In defense of AA, there are

In defense of AA, there are still several enjoying RP there that I'm aware of, and im in no hurry to let my patron status lapse due to how brutally impossible it is for a casual player to get land and i wont lose what smidge i got lol. Plus in Defense of Trion. i'm not the only one that feels Archeage would be managed much better if Trion had control of it, XL games holds the major decision power, Trion's only responsible for some publishing and translating of it overseas. But it does have its faults tho I wont lie lol. But i can find things to enjoy and keep me busy in most everything.

CUrrently I'm lurking about FFXIV as theres much I personally enjoy there in several areas and had made a few friends who still play that keep me lurking about . TSW i keep tabs on due to being a lifer and like one of the reasons Reaper is lurking there, I love the world/lore/dialogue/characters/atmosphere of that game immensely.
With SWTOR I am kind of wanting to fiddle with it sometime here in the future, went in and grabbed the 2 lower priced Strongholds while they were at that 3 credit special as it was a good deal and would like to use those as some motivation to play but right now i'm more interested and focused with my other titles, plus I no longer no anyone in ToR lol

and think of it this way Wichi, as you've played TSW before, its not going to cost u a dime if u ever decide to poke ur head in and visit lol.

I played in the beta and for

I played in the beta and for a bit after launch returning only once afterwards for a brief period. Unlike Age of Conan, I felt that while the story was fantastic and the investigation missions were great, the combat and character creation was lacking. When I say lacking I mean REALLY lacking. Chargen was boring and uninspired, not much choice in your character's looks, not even a basic slider system like in AoC. Combat was so boring I could fall asleep doing it. I wish I could get back into it though since modern horror/urban is really my thing...

I'm back in the game, and

I'm back in the game, and RPing a great storyline with Noctifer. As some have stated, the game can be a bit dull at times, especially with the combat mechanics. But the atmosphere is prime for RP. So much wiggle room to come up with great moments, and it's a fresh vibe from the fantasy-like games.
Anyhow, I'm typing this as a plea for more of you to come over and give it a try... at least for RP sake. Trust me, you can spend hours doing RPing, and not realise how fast the time went by. Brings me back to the days of long RP sessions in FE.
((And no worries, my new character is a far cry from the old, airheaded Wichi... She actually has a brain this time, LOL))

It should also be noted that

It should also be noted that the "servers" are more like shards of a whole server, so even if u roll on a different server to so speak u can mostly "meet up" with friends that are in another server. I know for the most part you'll be running around on the server you've chosen but can move around the others with the meet up function in game. Its quite useful, especially during some of the various events when the community is working together on tracking down world bosses and other rare spawns.

I do happen to be on Arcadia myself as well tho lol.

Enjoying this!

So far I'm enjoying TSW! As usual I don't do a lot of soloing for quests and hunting, but the storyline and side missions are fun. I am getting my feet wet on the RP side of things, as I've not found any decent RP since SWG that has been easy to slip into. Anja-li is my "main" Illuminati, but I have characters in all 3 Cabals, and would love to see them grow and have fun with people!
