The 12 Deals of Christmas

It’s the season of giving (or so they tell me) and The Secret World is no different. This year you’ll notice a new festive deal of the day if you visit the Item Store.

Attempt-612x337

Offering some of the biggest selling items at huge discounts they are only around for 24 hours so you will want to get them while they are available. Day One saw the Mystery Box get a huge 40% discount and Day Two had a 24 AP Injector discounted.

You can access the store in-game or by visiting the web version here. Keep an eye on the official Secret World Twitter account for the latest festive deal here

It’s worth noting that Issue Packs will not be included in this promotion so if you’re holding out for a discount on Issue 12 you may need to wait a little longer.

TSW Malala Art Book

The TSW Malala Project is going from strength to strength and today they unveiled a project that has been in the works for some time.

image

The TSW Artbook features artists from far and wide from both inside TSW and outside. With all art styles and levels covered it is an amazing piece and truly captures the spirit of the project and the community.

If you want to get your hands on a copy (and you really should) all you need to do is donate $20 to the TSW Malala project before the end of the year.

If you’re unfamiliar with the TSW Malala project it aims to gather the TSW community together to raise $10,000 for the Malala Fund which helps make sure that young women get an education regardless of where they are. Malala was shot by the Taliban for trying to go to school, she survived and has since campaigned tirelessly for women’s education. Something most of us take for granted.

You can find out more about the project here and you can donate at our donation page here.

Krampus Karols

It’s that time of year again. Krampus is hiding around the corner and we’re all ready for the festive cheer. So what better way to celebrate then a good old fashioned carol competition.

imageWith some great prizes on offer its time to let those creative juices flow. The krampus Karol Contest tasks you with writing a four to five stanza song around TSW and the festive season. From horror to comedy it’s all fair game.

Not sure what a stanza is? (Don’t worry we weren’t either). Gin has kindly given a definition and an example over on the forums with we are going to “borrow”

Stanza (noun): A group of lines forming the basic recurring metrical unit in a poem; a verse. (Usually four lines or more).

Here is what a typical stanza can look like:

Krampus took off in the night,
Outwitted my team and fled down Hel’s Hall.
As we followed him we saw such a fright,
He summoned Super Hell to kill us all!

But what goodies does Krampus have you ask? Well more then just coal this time around.

Grand Prize: Tattie Bogle (Epic Companion Pet) + 1200 BONUS POINTS! + Entry read over Funcom Stream!
2nd Place: A selection of Blue Signets + Little Foot (Epic Companion Pet) +600 BONUS POINTS
3rd Place: 2 Million Pax (+Selection of Blue Signets) +300 BONUS POINTS!
