The Secret World
First of all, hilarious detail in the Mansion scenario that I noticed last night. In the upstairs survivor room, there’s a little section that they’ve walled off with the sign “Occupied.” If you look behind there, you’ll see a homemade chamber pot.
Poop jokes! You’re never too old for them!
We had another good group scenario night running solo and duo elites with full groups. That feels like a good difficulty balance, especially since we were able to walk away from them with most survivors still standing. Lots of augment drops too.
I was particularly happy because I got enough oreos to put me over the top for my Tokyo certification. I guess now I can start saving up for that purple shotgun!

As probably everyone knows, Turbine delayed the Helm’s Deep launch until tomorrow. That sucks a little bit, but oh well, it’s just two days and I know a lot of people still needed to get a pre-order or use their Bounder’s tokens. It’s not all about me, so if it’s helping others, I’m happy.
I logged in to make a new outfit for my Captain. Man, I should’ve taken a picture of it. Oh, coulda woulda shoulda. It’s awesome. You’re going to have to imagine it: Think of stuff all over my body except I’m a female and it’s all blue and swirly and there’s a cool cape and some metal. Got it?
Why is Neverwinter so dang compelling these days? Maybe it’s just what I needed right now, a stress-free romp through unspoiled content. I’m cooking up an article about things I’m finding attractive here, but suffice to say that it’s kind of the Cryptic formula: fast leveling, easy entry, and fun little systems.
