It should be considered socially acceptable to tell someone that you are sorry that they have the mental capacity of a stunned wombat.

Some bug fixes, and a small raft of new systems added today:

All for you to add your characters and groups to :)




lms if Look Around You made you start saying Thants and sometimes you say it without thinking about it

the #maelfroth bot has a (currently disabled) function where if someone goes Thanks, {nick} it goes th{V1}{rest of the Nick}

so like

"Thanks, Crabbadon"

I thought it was on a random seed, so sometimes it would do it, and sometimes not. Aquarion will be able to provide an actual answer though.

It’s not actually disabled, every time it sees “Thanks, {X}” it activates on 1d6==3

Every wonder what Monster looks like in a 1500 person larp event? Something like this. Runs ~9am Saturday to ~2am Sunday.


Sometimes I get the slightly distressing feeling that this is what my future looks like.

If your future is that you grow up to be Sue Perkins, then chin up: There are worse things.

New favourite chara…ow. Sudden pain in the bio-chip.


New *second* favourite TSW character.

Seeing what tricks my new pet knows during my first session


Me: Roll over.

GM: The hedgehog rolls over. It’s adorable.

Me: Stay.

GM: You take a few steps away. The hedgehog remains where it is.

Me: Heel.

GM: The hedgehog heals you for 5 HP.

Me: Holy shit.




No, but think about this. We’ve seen the Winter Soldier face Fury’s car.

Maybe he’s done the same with Howard. Maybe his hair wasn’t so long yet. Maybe he wasn’t wearing a mask. Maybe Howard saw his face in the headlights for just a second.

Maybe Howard and Maria died in a car crash. Maybe Howard swerved to not hit a ghost.



Maybe, but my current theory is they died the same way as they did in comic canon. Given that Roxxon keep popping up un-referenced in MCU movies (They own the tanker that Ironmonger throws in IM1, the rigs that the fight’s around in IM3 and the gas station Coulson fills up at in A Funny Thing…, off the top of my head. There’s probably more), I think they’re being set up for a future movie. Which might mean that at some point we get John Slattery back as Howard for a MCU Days Of Pink Overtaken style movie at some point, which would be nice.

OTOH, Maybe Bucky O’Eyeliner-Overload was hired to pull off that hit. 

I knew you had it in you.

I know everything you have in you, thanks to your biochip’s feedback.

Kristen Geary, The Secret World.


Ahhh! Tonight’s learning raid was super super fun.  We got to final resort even (not quite enough dps alive at the time to take it out) and it was stellar fun to run with criffyzou and alias-milamber, as well as to see chromestorm who hasn’t been able to join us recently! 

So, last night I did my first Secret World raid. It was massively fun, despite not actually finishing it.

Specifically, spending two hours repeatedly failing the raid was significantly more fun than the two hours I’d spent previously banging my head against Kaiden solo. A lot of this was social, the raid was massively low pressure, Teamspeak was bantering and fun, and when we died (which was often) we knew what was wrong, and fixed it (or, you know, didn’t). It reminded me why I love playing this game, and also that I need to find some people (ideally in my timezone) to run Tokyo with.

So, yes. Thanks, peoples. It was a good night :)
