  1. When I ran this recently I noticed that when I arrived at the hellscape area I was told visual tracking had been enabled. The usual blue glow didn't appear but small fiery red glows did appear leading to the area behind the taverna. It's not as obvious as the others and it isn't until I was by the taverna that I noticed them. They're pretty easy to miss.
  2. TSW Items and PAX giveaway!

    Ohh Can I have Emote: Stop please?
  3. New Year, New Contest

    It’s 2017 and we’re looking forward to a year full of possibilities (let's be honest it can’t be worse than last year). We thought we’d get our new year's resolutions off to a start by holding the first of our monthly events (assuming Kle doesn’t break something). We want to hear what your new year’s resolutions are and of course there’s a twist. We want you to take screenshots of them for us (a bit like pictionary only more concise and with less drunken family members and better prizes). Talking of prizes here's what we're giving away: The Museum Pool: A selection of Museum items some more useful than others and a Sanctuary Tee-Shirt The Signet Pool: A selection of Signets of various levels and types. Oh and you also get a Sanctuary Tee-shirt too The Clothing Pool: Who doesn’t love clothes? You’ll get a selection of event clothes (from random events) as well as a snazzy Sanctuary Tee-shirt Plus everyone who enters will get a Rare Signet Bag. Post your entries here by the 31st of January and we’ll let you know who the winners were next month. If you’re wanting to take some great shots here’s some tips: Alt+Z removes the UI and any nameplates on the screen leaving only the characters. TSW has some great lighting so we encourage entrants to seek out natural screenshots and not use filters or editing (we won’t disqualify anyone who does but there’s a good chance it will actually go against you). Feel free to enter group shots but bear in mind only the person submitting the picture will get a prize if they win. Blue Signet Bags may be given to the rest of the group at Sanctuary’s discretion. The Small Print The Contest is open until Midnight (GMT) on the 31st January 2017 You can enter by posting your picture in this thread Only one picture per person will be accepted. If you post multiple pictures your first picture will be the one used as your entry. Prizes are as described above and are provided by Sanctuary and may be subject to change (hopefully for the better) The Sanctuary Staff will select the winners (Auroris, Kle, Lady-Pyre and TheChosenOne) If you have any questions please get in touch with Kle on the forums or on twitter @Kle_Sanctuary
  4. TSWMalala Art Book Auction

    This Extra Life we wanted to find more ways of raising money for the kids. Thanks to the amazing Psywarrior we have an brilliant opportunity for you. Toward the end of last year the community raised over $10,000 for the Malala Fund which helps make sure that every young woman gets a decent education no matter what their circumstances. As part of the charity drive an art book was created bringing together talented artists not only from the community but also from outside such as award winning Dan Parent from Archies Comics and Web artist David Smith. Everyone who donated at least $15 got a digital copy of the art book but only the top donators got a physical copy. Now we’ve been given the opportunity to auction off not one but two of these extremely limited art books for Extra Life (Only forty were ever printed). These are not only just a piece of The Secret World history but Gaming History too because to the best of our knowledge there has not been a charity drive like this created and managed by players which raised such a large amount. So how can you get your hands on one of these amazing books? Simple, to give everyone a fair chance we’ll be running a silent auction. The first book will be auctioned off from now until we finish our stream on the 5th of November (which is 11PM GMT). The second auction will open when we start the following day and carry on until the 13th of November. The highest bid when each auction closes will get the art book. (Due to technical issues with our stream we will extend the first auction to the start of our second stream which is 11am GMT on Sunday the 6th) You can email your bids to auction@thesecretpodcast.co.uk and we will be in touch with the winner when the auction closes. If you win you can choose to make your donation either directly to one of the Team Sanctuary participants or by sending payment to the Podcast Paypal where we will add it to the team's total. We will also cover postage because we would rather have all your money go to the kids then be tied up in silly things like shipping. If you have any questions feel free to get in touch with Kle or at the email address above and we’ll do our best to answer them. Our thanks to Psywarrior again for allowing us the chance to auction these beautiful art books and don’t forget to check out her work at www.tswproject.org
  5. Extra Life 2016

    Extra-Life is fast approaching and as always Sanctuary is right on board ready to play games to raise money for sick kids. As with any team you can sign up and support a hospital near you so you don’t have to worry about being tied to a particular hospital. You can stream yourself (if you leave your details in a post below we’ll update this one) or you’re welcome to join Auroris and Kle as they take a leisurely approach to their 24 hours over two days. We’ll have tee-shirts up for grabs for team members as well as other goodies so be sure to sign up here Not able to play but still want to support us? Well we’re taking a leaf from other teams and offering anyone who donates $10 or more to one of our team members a Sanctuary tee. If that isn’t an incentive to help the kids we don’t know what is. Be sure to check out the current team members and help them on their way (as well as seeing what random stretch goals they have). Dark Insanities Stream Times Saturday 5th 11:00 – Starting with Overwatch 12:30 – 13:00 – The Secret World 21:00 – 21:30 – Finishing the day with Overwatch Sunday 6th 11:00am – Starting with Talisman Mid afternoon – Continuing with Move or Die, Town of Salem & Jackbox Party Pack.
  6. Sanctuary does Halloween

    Hello there. This Halloween we wanted to do something huge and we’ve teamed with some of the biggest names in The Secret World community to bring you a series of activities throughout the month of October. There’s something for everyone from a spooky RP story, halloween shows with your favorite DJs at your the best venues as well as a live Podcast recording with a developer. There will also be impromptu dungeon/lair runs throughout the month (and maybe even some world bosses if we’re lucky). We also have contests for you (because what is Halloween without a contest) so you can win prizes while you’re having fun too. You can find a brief rundown of events below to help you plan your October with a more in-depth explanation of each week in the posts following. Bear in mind we are still working with partners to finalise the events so some may be subject to change. We are also happy to accept any donations for prizes to the contests (we’ve tried tieing Kle down to the PC but he’s not great at farming things). If you’re interested in joining the schedule then we’d be happy to have you, just send us a message. If you have any questions send a message to Kle here, in-game or on Twitter @Kle_Sanctuary Update: Kle has now thoroughly been beaten and we've now got a schedule in order. Week One We get the party started with DJ Medrina from Happy Tentacle Radio who is having a Horror Movie themed #PlayAnything in Eldwic Park. Join her at 10PM on Thursday for all your favourite movie music (and outfits) Week Two Hide and Seek with Lady-Pyre: Find Pyre for shiny prizes. Sunday October 30th 12pm EST (4pm GMT) Podcast Live: (Time and date to be confirmed) The Secret Podcast will be interviewing one of the Developers of TSW live and you can join them in-game to distract them. They'll also be giving away the new and exclusive Secret Podcast Tee-shirts. Week Three: 31/10 (time tbc once I figure out timezones): DJ Lady Lyra's Metal Mayhem goes on tour to New York and visits the Saint's and Sinners Nightclub. Being Halloween you can expect all kinds of fun (actually being S&S and Lady Lyra you can expect all kinds of fun anyway ). Dress up for the night and show the spirits how it's really done. Sanctuary Q&A: As is traditional we will be holding a Q&A on the forums. We will have a member of the Dev team (we'll announce who soon™) answering your burning questions.
  7. Gamer Food

    Damn you TaCO. Now I'm peckish....
  8. Sanctuary does Halloween

    Week Four: TBA We will also be running a contest and various World bosses and lair runs (courtesy of ODO over the course of the event so keep your eyes pealed to the Sanctuary in-game channel for more info)
  9. It’s been four years here since the bomb went off and everything changed. Sanctuary has been supporting players for a large chunk of that time. It would be a shame if we didn't do something to celebrate. So to help mark the occasion we’re holding a contest with the rarest of prizes. We want you to show us your favourite moments from this years event. From battling giant golems to defeating the Gatekeeper. Maybe you've had an impromptu dance party in deep Agartha or you’re just really proud of your new Dapper Buzz outfit. Whatever the moment take a picture and share it with us. Contest Details Take a screenshot in game (please make sure you are safe and not putting yourself or team at risk) and submit your picture and in-game name (if it is a group shot please add the names of your group and try to limit it to five) to this thread. Feel free to add a caption if you want but it’s the picture we’re looking at. Cropping is allowed but other then that please avoid editing the picture. The contest will run until the 31st of July (yes we know the Anniversary event is only two weeks but you might want to get the perfect shot with your new pet or outfit without a giant Golem in the way ) To take a screen shot press the F11 button (if you want to hide the UI to get a cleaner picture press Alt Z ). You should then be able to find this picture in your screenshot folders (usually something like C: > Program Files (x86) > Funcom > The Secret World > screenshots Unless you are using a different programme like steam) Prizes Of course the bit you all want to know about.

  10. Anniversary Screenshot Contest

    We've been poking our Judges and we have winners. In first place is Brandstifler with the march of the Templar (and a single Illuminati) In second Place is CrazyDogLady with an action shot from Tokyo Third place was Ascle who let out his inner Golem. All the pictures came in with the same number of votes so we ended up going with where how the judges had scored them originally. Our Special Judges also got an extra vote each to pick a favourite picture to win extra shines regardless of the vote. Buzzy-Fred (our super secret judge) chose this shot of a Lonely GateKeeper in Carpathian Fangs (poor GK) by Brandstifler Lady-Pyre chose this shot of Lucid-Nightmare winging a Carpathian Golem. Who'd have thought you had dark wings Lucid, you seem so nice We'll be sending out prizes to all who participated today and getting in touch with the winners to see which set of prizes they would like. Thanks to everyone who took part and to the generosity of those who made the prize pool so big. Keep an eye out for more contest and events in the near future.
  11. Anniversary Screenshot Contest

    The contest is now closed to new submissions. We'll be announcing the winners shortly. Thank you all for sharing your amazing screenshots.
  12. Anniversary Screenshot Contest

    Posted on Behalf of Asmod of SnS check out their latest events over at saintsandsinnersclub.tumblr.com/
  13. Agent’s we have been getting odd emails which up until lately we have been ignoring. They’ve been coming from random accounts with no apparent connection. Each one has the same message. “Play me" along with a MP3 file. The higher ups don't think it's important but I'm not so sure. I've got a tech team looking over the recording and making sure it's safe. When we have a copy of the file we can share with you I'll post it here. It might be nothing but my spider senses are tingling...
  14. You can use a health potion (HoT) and an Anima potion like Block at the same time. Anima potions like block or crit don't stack though and just override each other. There's an add-on that shows your buffs UI Enhanced although you should be able to see which buffs you have by looking over your name and hovering over the icons just above it.
  15. Huoy - City of the Sun God

    I'll give Vomher a poke and see if he can take a look. He seems to be handling a bulk of the missions/Lore atm.
  16. Introduction Thread

    Welcome, I used to be antisocial but then TSW happened. Nice to have you on board. And you'll find being crazy helps around here
  17. Anniversary Screenshot Contest

    You can have multiple entries but when it comes to prizes we'll only be able to reward one per player just to keep it fair.
  18. Anniversary Screenshot Contest

    Just for the record I am unable to give everyone there a prize for participation...
  19. Anniversary Screenshot Contest

    In this thread would be great. We will accept them from elsewhere but it just makes life easier for us if they're all here.
  20. "I read the report. It sounded... Tough." Kyle paused "We have people you can go to if you need help post mission, you don't need to try and keep yourself together with sticky tape and thumb tacks. We look after people here. Unlike... other places." Kyle mutters. "As for Kermit, if anyone can help him I'm certain you can." Kyle paused "I know he's not the easiest first person to mentor and our... history doesn't help but you have a way with people. Even..." Kyle sighed "Tough nuts, like him. I'm trying to be restrained here. I know that of the two of us I'm the lucky one." Kyle leaned back on his chair and stared at the ceiling for a bit. "I guess in an odd way he deserves a chance. An opportunity to get the things I was lucky enough to get" He leaned forward and the chair made a thudding sound on the floor. "He needs someone like you. I sure as hell wouldn't be much use."
  21. Kyle seemed to think to himself for a moment. Eventually he said "As much as I hate to admit it he is good at finding people. He found Sato, Sophia, Me.." He went quiet. "He can be useful. If anyone can find Canto he can. Just keep him in check. Even if it requires hitting him over the back of the head with a lead pipe." Kyle laughed "Of course I can't actually condone that" he winked. "I'll make sure you get any files about Kermit I get hold of. Is there anything else you need while we're here?" Kyle leaned back again.
  22. Roman raised an eyebrow. "You have started working with the Muppets? Will Miss Piggy be recruited next?" He sighed. "I do not know if I have access to those details but I will see what I can rustle up. Not for your sake I should add." He said glaring at Hreb "Or yours either Hudson" Kyle grinned "This is because I have taken a risk here. There is a lot of interest in your actions now you aren't directly under our control. A certian amount of that comes back on me. I don't have the time to deal with extra inquisitions" He sighed before eventually turning to Kyle. "Forward me the details and I will send you what I can find without ruffling to many feathers" He walked toward the door "May I go now?" Kyle nodded
  23. "Sounds interesting. I can see him being a handful though. He's not used to working with others." Kyle smiled. "As far as the young Templar, she's always welcome here. She doesn't need to be in trouble. We take anyone regardless of situation. Hell they took me" Kyle grinned. There was a knock at the door. "Come in" he said laughing slightly. The representative from Temple Hall walked in and sighed as he took in the rooms occupants. "Hudson, Hreb." Sheerman said as calmly as he could manage. "Oh don't be so formal Roman" Kyle grinned "Grab a seat take a weight off those legs" Roman stood there looking mildly annoyed "You called me. I presumed it was important. Why is Hreb here?" He said with no hint of malice, more annoyance. "Fine be like that" Kyle grinned "Hreb is here because he's preparing for his new mentee, and we'd like your help." "I fail to see how I can. I have as much access to the Hall's records as you do." "Really? Well that isn't true." Kyle laughed "For a start you wouldn't be here if you had the same access as me. And when did you become all suspicious? I thought we'd reached an agreement?" Roman glared at Kyle, for now he completely appeared to be ignoring Hreb. "I got into a lot of trouble after your disciplinary Hudson. The Hall wanted you off the Council. My vote did not go as they planned, I had to do a lot of purswading..." Kyle raised an eyebrow. "What is it you actually want?" "Nothing too big. The Illuminati will help us out one way or the other but it's always nice to get the full picture if you get my drift. Besides you know what they're like when it comes to paperwork..." Kyle grinned appealing to Roman's inner Templar. "But I'm sure Hreb can explain it better than I can" Roman begrudgingly turned around and looked at Hreb.
  24. "Well from what he says and the fake Sato was spouting on Twitter, Kermit got the Anti-Anima rounds from him. Sato claims to have crafted them himself. Of course it's tough to tell if that's the truth." "Kermit handed over all the bullets and the gun when he handed himself in to us. Of course since then the number of bullets seems to be getting smaller by the day. "For research purposes" mostly..." He said while rolling his eyes. "Again it pains me to say this but Kermit can be useful. Pointed in the right direction he does his job. He just needs to be honed a bit. And taught to maybe hold back a little so that he's not killing everything that moves" Kyle picked up the phone "Hi? Can you send over Mr Sheerman please. We have to discuss some training." There was a pause. "Well now ideally but as long as I get the info I need I guess he can arse about if he wants" Kyle held the phone away from his head while the voice in the other end was extremely vocal about Kyles attitude. "Thank you" he said eventually when the yelling had finished. "I can't wait to see him again." Kyle returned his attention to Hreb. "So while we wait on our Templar friend, what do you plan to do with our friend Kermit?"
  25. "He was under detention by the hall at one point. I can probably get some info from them if you want a different perspective. Although you know what they can be like." Kyle sighed. "Both Sato and Kermit have suffered in one way or another. But haven't we all? Sato is beyond our help and not really our concern unless he tries to recruit Kermit again, and knowing Sato he's not one to reuse old material. Kermit..." Kyle stared at the celing again. "If he can shift his focus away from me. Channel that anger into something more productive." Kyle shook his head "He might not be a lost cause. And that really pains me to say that"
