TSW: Dark Days Are Here

June 30, 2012

I have to agree with Syp on this one — Funcom lets you make some pretty freakin’ hot female characters.

Well, at least I think mine’s also looking quite attractive. I asked my husband what he thought, and also my dad and my brother who are in town at the moment, and since the three of them agreed as well, I’m just going to go with that. However, I don’t understand why in order to have long hair in an MMO, you often have to settle for that saucy, windswept look.

Meet Tamerlaine “Laeyn” Berard. Wait, I think I got that right. Ironically, I went through all this trouble yesterday coming up with a name for RP purposes, going so far as to spend an hour on the internet doing research and getting ideas, but now I can’t even remember exactly what I decided. My brother prefers to just call her “the grad student”.

The server is Arcadia and the faction is Templar. I was really surprised yesterday when I looked around and saw what appeared to be way more people I know playing The Secret World than I expected, like quite a few more than the 3 or 4 I’d originally thought.

Anyway, this led to a handful of us from the Republic Mercy Corps forming a cabal called the Knights of Mercy. It was made mostly for social purposes, in order to provide us and our friends a network and a home while we’re in TSW. Star Wars: The Old Republic will continue to be our main game, and come the end of August I think most of us will also be looking forward to playing a certain MMO.

But if you’re interested in a casual play style and don’t mind being around a bunch of crazy people (but seeing as our ranks have already swelled, apparently you all don’t mind the crazy), feel free to look us up in game. Give me a holler here with your character name, or keep an eye out for the folks with invite privileges: Paganrites, Eleison, Nadea, and of course me, Laeyn.

Update: Yeti and Tarantella are also now amongst those with invite privileges.
