Case number: 27136668M, Maria Townsend

To whom it may concern:

Per our arrangement with you on the handling of suspect, Maria J. Townsend, we have been monitoring her lately through closed circuit TV and field agents when needed. Our current observations are:

-We have noticed a physical change with Ms. Townsend. This might just be inconsistent to anything, but our records on her appearance have been update. Criminals usually try to alter their looks once released back into society.

-While conducting interviews with her professors at the university, they have told us that Maria’s capacity to absorb knowledge has grown tenfold. She is now at or near the capabilities of honor students in the Master’s programs there. Yet, Ms. Townsend still chooses to hide under the façade of this young teen. Why she does this astounds even her instructors.

Picking up my old story and going further?

Submission Type:

My storyline kind of had ended... with Ria having been taken in by the Templars to reform her back to reality.
But, someone OOC mentioned something to me.
What if the true cult leader came looking for Ria, either to rid her for what she did to her brainwashers, OR to bring her back into the cult?
I'm still pondering over the idea, but it would get people back into RP again... I think.

Ria is still in her ankle monitor, so it will give me time to decide if I want to persue this further.
Let me know what you think of this idea. Whatever we decide, it won't happen until Ria is freed of the ankle monitor.
If we decide to just end the story as is... I have no problem with that. I just need everyones thoughts on it, so I know whether to prepare something in the future, or just stay as is for the ride.
Thanks. Love you guys.
Ria

Enhanced Player Experience

Submission Type:

Enhanced Player Experience

The Secret World is a deep game, with an original story and a host of choices for character development. A lot of its innovative content can be quite challenging, but it is such features that make The Secret World a unique MMO, and we are very proud of them.

Some of these features can be extra challenging to new players though. We wish to introduce the Enhanced Player Experience so both new and experienced players can focus more on enjoying the great stories and puzzles of the game, and then take on the more brutal fights and challenges when they feel ready for them.

The update also brings many quality of life improvements and develops the starter experience so it is easier to grasp essential game mechanics.

Game Director Letter – March 2015

Submission Type:

Game Director Letter – March 2015

Hi guys,

I’ve just returned from my whirlwind visit to the US office (and a quick trip to Canada) and I am jetlagged. Still, the nice unicorn that I sat next to on the plane after taking my Ambien gave me some very good tips on Illuminati brain control techniques, so that is a bonus.

More on the trip later in the letter, but first I want to talk a little bit more about the Enhanced Player Experience (I wanted to call it the Enhanced Player Elite Enjoyment Nirvana or EPEEN, but I was shot down by wiser voices).

The first rollouts of the experience are live on the Testlive servers. As I mentioned in the previous letter we’ve done a lot of work. I won’t waste time rehashing the entire list, but there are a couple of things that slipped through my notes last time that I wanted to mention.

Game Director Letter – February 2015

Submission Type:

Game Director Letter – February 2015

Hi guys! (For the short version click here)

For the past few weeks we’ve been splitting our time between the player experience revamp and Issue #11.

The revamped experience has expanded slightly in scope by improving the tutorials in the beginning and smoothing out the difficulty curve. When we go back and change things, we also find other ways of improving the early game experience.

There is a fairly long laundry list of changes, but I will attempt to summarize most of the important ones here.

In Search Of Hidden Truths

Submission Type:

((Just a taste of Gordafrid's life. Enjoy!))

Gordafarid took in the scents of the air as she allowed her guide to lead her through the Hall, her senses straining to map her surroundings as best she could. Old wood, dried flowers, the scent of dust and cleaning supplies, polished stone. Scents were as much a landmark for her as sound and touch were. Granted, most times she didn’t really miss sight – it was difficult to miss something one never knew – but it was times like this that being able to see new obstacles in her path would be rather useful. “There are steps here, Miss Gazhdaham,” the light baritone at her side murmured, only stumbling slightly over her name. She suppressed a twinge of guilt that she was unchaperoned with a man not of her family, but she reminded herself firmly for the seventh time that day that this was England, and not her home.

TSW Invicta on Twitter!

Submission Type:

One of the more interesting aspects of TSW is the Secret World Twitterverse Experiment. Basically, the idea is that FunCom has set up several twitter accounts that they periodically post to and more than a few roleplayers in TSW have jumped on board to post 'In Character' tweets there. I've jumped on board with this and heartily encourage you to do the same! Post here with your character's Twitter account!

TSW Channels for Invicta's Ventrilo Server

Submission Type:

I've set up several channels in Invicta's Ventrilo server for TSW. I'll be hopping on Vent when in-game, feel free to jump in when you'd like. It is by no means required, but can be very helpful, particularly when coordinating questing and Dungeons.
For instructions on how to download and use our Vent server, check out the topic here.

TSW Chat Scripts for Invicta

Submission Type:

I've modified a script I found online to help auto-join you to the #invicta channel in-game so that you don't need to remember to do it each time you log in or zone. You can download the scripts here.

To install, just unpack the zip and move the files within to the Scripts folder in your Secret World directory (on my computer, that's C:\Program Files (x86)\Funcom\The Secret World\Scripts ). The two files within are text-based, so you can open and edit with any text editor (Notepad, Wordpad, etc.). I've included a lot of channels for RPers and radio stations in there, so if you're not interested in those, just go in and delete.

Enjoy!

Maria's story... a plotline for it

Submission Type:

After many hours of watching videos's to Queensryche's album, "Operation:Mindcrime", including lyrical ones, I think I've finally interpretted how I will relay this story in the game TSW. I'm posting this OOC for you all to see, but remember what you read here is IC, and should not be released under any circumstances. Each part will be slowly released over time. Thank you.
Layout of Maria’s story… step by step
1) Maria becomes enraged over things she has seen on television. She proclaims a wanting to start a revolution. (Done)

Illuminati Non-Mandatory Social

Submission Type:

Illuminati Non-Mandatory Social

Illuminati characters may find a new passport in their belongings. Or maybe they get it as an attachment to an email full of disturbing-yet-funny cat pictures from the Pyramidon. Maybe Kristin Geary just hands it to you and says "Fun fact - this just happened."

You are required to attend a non-mandatory social gathering.

The Labyrinth.
31-January, 4 P.M. Brooklyn time (US EST)

Tick-Tock.

Harrassment by former member Bellh

Submission Type:

Please be aware that I removed Bellh from the Invicta Security Company this morning for publicly harassing another member of Invicta, refusing to stop when asked to by an officer and issuing threats. I tried to handle it as respectfully as I could, but they've elected to start harassing other members of Invicta on alts (Lil-Cherry, another alt is Sillea). If you are harassed by this person, please be as respectful as possible, take screenshots of the conversation and email them to me at . I'm hoping they it go soon, but if they don't, I'd like as much evidence to pass on to FunCom as possible.
Thanks, gang. And sorry for any problems... my initial instinct was that she might be a problem, but I'm a softy at heart and try to give everyone who wants to join a chance to become a part of the family.

Possible Cover Story

Submission Type:

Since our organization is conducting a pretty covert mission I figured a cover story was a good idea. Since we are operating in Egypt I figure our cover story could be this: "We are currently contracts by a third party, who we are not at liberty to discuss (The Kingdom). Our clients maintain full confidentiality. We are tasked with providing logistics, security, and tactical support to the Maryan Rebels operating out of Egypt." // Decent cover story huh? Or it could be what we are actually doing! ^.^
