The Holiday season is a special one for a lot of us, and it has been no different for The League these last few years. Started after I became an officer, the Holiday Giveaway is now on its fourth year (a couple more and we get a free coffee). This year I wanted to make it exciting for veteran players as well as newer recruits, so you should notice a very special prize (thanks to Andy). To enter the giveaway, reply to this post with your in-game name (this is open to all Slayers rank 2 or 3). The winner will be posted on New Year's Day (Jan 1st) and we will draw the names of the winning slayers in order of who will have first, second, third, and so on, pick of the listed gifts.

Huzzah! The winds of change have blown, and with them comes the rule of Elal the first, protector of the realms and tank supreme! As some of you have already heard, one of our beloved officers, Elal, has been promoted to the level of Prime Minister (rank 5). He will share leadership with myself and sixofeight (MukYanChon) as a third of the triumvirate that guides The League. Unfortunately, this means that we officially lose Bagofcats as a head. Some of you newer Slayers might only know Bags from forum and Discord posts, but he has faithfully served LoMS for longer than I can remember. He will though, still serve as the liaison for ESO amongst Slayers, but will no longer have Prime Minister duties.
This is an important passing of the baton since all of the previous PMs have been shining examples of what The League is about. Elal will, no doubt, embody the virtues of our cabal and remain an integral part of our experiences in SWL. So let's all give our congratulations to him, either...
It sort of feels like the wheel completed its turn, new beginnings after closing an era.
The Golden Age of LoMS was overseen by Beecher, MadLyric and Anuschka, a trinity of great players and mates (and women, yes, in case there are any troglodytes left in doubt). They made LoMS a byword among cabals - or guilds, or organizations, whatever the designation. I wish we could be half as good at what they did best: firmness, heart and clarity.
Life happens, as it does, and change is the norm. Anuschka, cat-herder and tank of great fun raids, was at the time finishing her thesis in Game Development. Once that was done with, she was left with no choice but to step down and leave the game: pursuing a career and breaking into that industry requires dedication beyond commitment. And then, the pandemic came. Fun times.
And here we are. There has always been three Prime Ministers at the top of LoMS. I guess there is safety in numbers. And it's quite on-brand with our version of planning...
Joy and positivity are needed more than ever as we enter the last few weeks of what was a hard year for everyone. So to help celebrate the holidays that are upon us, The League will be holding its Second Annual Holiday Giveaway. Help make this a success by simply replying to this post with your in-game name, and then sit back and wait till New Year's Day for a chance to win some excellent prizes. Also, if you are a friend of The League, meaning you have been a steady participant in the LoMS chat, then you are eligible to be a part of this celebration.
So let's all put the past behind us and start the New Year off with a bang, and of course cookies!!
1) Morganey will rename a character in his next novel after either your name or you character's name (nothing offensive)
2) A full set of 4-pip Imbuers (one each - weapon, talisman & glyph)
3) A full set of Energizing Empowerment Catalysts (one of each - signet, glyph...
For a long time, all the way back since the early days of TSW and LoMS, Beecher has been providing us with direction and and, literally, herding us along the core principles of Fun - Friendly - Helpful which have made this player organization into a household word. This is no mere hyperbole. The League is well-known, respected and loved in our mainstay Secret World, and also expanding and growing into other games. This has been very much due to Beecher's work and dedication, a labour of love if there ever was one.
After a time away from SWL, Beecher has decided the moment had come for someone else to step up and into her leadership boots. We have always had a sort of leading triumvirate, the latest version being Beecher, Anuschka and yours truly. Our main remit has been, beyond administration and promoting and demoting officers, interacting and coordinating in an official capacity with the environment outside the organization, it being the official representatives of the...
It’s heeeere! The massive dungeon and raid rebalance is going live Tuesday, September 29th! This is one of the biggest updates for Secret World Legends EVER, and we sincerely appreciate all the feedback and help everyone provided during testing! If this is all new to you, hey, no worries -...
