News

A big thanks to everyone who has been patiently waiting!   The SWLRP Roleplay Profile Add-On (or, just the 'SWLRP Add-On' for short) is now live!

You can find download links, information, and credits on the forum thread!  

This is an open-source, team-based community project, so if you have any feedback or ideas on how to make it better, please let us know!

Much thanks for Tungsten and Samera for weeks of hard work to make this possible, and a special thank you to Acenth (the TSWRP mod creator) for encouraging us and inspiring us with his work.

Enjoy!

Mayahuel Woot!! Thanks so much to everyone who made this happen. Big mushy appreciative hugs all around! THANK YOU! <3

We've been busy, and we have some updates to share!

The SWLRP Mod

Everyone's wondering about this one, I'm sure.  We're still working on it!  We have a basic working in-game mod, but we're still adjusting the looks of it and making sure the back-end for editing and making profiles is both secure and bug-free.  (Well, reasonably bug-free for an initial release.)   So:  we are official in alpha testing and trying our best to break things!

Wiki 'Featured Characters'

The SWLRP Wiki now has a Featured Character function which will present a random character to highlight and show off, different every day!

Now, of course, I need some characters to volunteer to for their 24 hours of fame.  If you want your character to be featured, check the link above for instructions on how to do it!

Moderators Wanted!

We're looking for some additional moderators for the SWLRP website & community, including in-game chat and Discord.  If you're interested, check out the Seeking Moderators thread to see what's expected, and what you can expect!

Some people have already noticed that the TSWRP mod website has announced it is shutting down.  Given the recent unofficial fix (and then retraction of that fix), this bears some clarification!

Most importantly is this:   there is absolutely no ill-will or conflict spurring this change!

In my conversation with Acenth about the unofficial fix, I mentioned that our ultimate goal was to recode the mod without using his code, so that we could respect his copyright and intellectual property.  I asked whether he would be okay with this and whether he'd like to contribute to it.  He responded that he fully supported a new mod, for reasons he lays out on his website, but would prefer it be a ground-up effort without he himself involved.  He provided some technical information to help us on our way, and suggested announcing now rather than when the SWLRP mod is actually functional, so that people have as much warning as possible to copy or migrate their profiles.

Sometime soon we will post more information about the SWLRP mod, its progress, and its goals.  In the meantime, please rest assured that your profiles are still there and TSWRP is not going to vanish overnight.

Please check our forums for more details as they're available!

Mayahuel I am so excited about this!! Thanks so much to you and others who are working on it. I loved Acenth's mod and I...

Early Access is right around the corner -- followed by official launch on June 26th!

Be sure to add the #SWLRP channel to your chat scripts so you can connect to others in-game.  There are instructions on our forums.

You can also stop by our Discord chatroom, and follow our Twitter at @SWLRoleplay to meet and chat with other roleplayers.  If you tweet at us with the hashtag #swlrp, we'll automatically retweet you (or the event you're advertising)!

Keep in mind that in the early days, the community will grow slowly and in different directions, so if you're a roleplayer looking for networking, it pays to look around and be patient!  Reach out, talk to people, and be friendly -- chances are they'll be friendly right back!

Launch in T-Minus 20

spellsmith posted Jun 7, 17

Secret World: Legends is launching at the end of this month, in less than twenty days.  Our community is already growing and collaborating, sharing news and information, posting summaries, and getting to know each other!

What's new in May and June so far?

  • The Discord is live.  We're sharing space with an unofficial SWL Discord with chatrooms for general talk, theorycrafting, and yes, roleplay.  Join the conversation!
  • The SWLRP Wiki is growing!  It now supports the three major factions, plus 'Neutral', Orochi, and Council of Venice.  Our goal has been to make it as visually appealing and as user-friendly as possible!
  • Rovena, a member who joined us at the very start, has been incredibly helpful and enthusiastic in compiling news articles, dev stream reviews, Q&A summaries, and other material for the community.  She's accepted an offer to become our very first Moderator to help out with site maintenance, so say hi to her!
  • There will be events coming up on the calendar soon to hit SWL with a bang, so stay tuned!
