There’s been a lot of negativity lately in the Secret World community, and I’ll admit to contributing to this. So, I thought I’d do a little something to engage with the community and give back instead of just complain about things.
I’ve been gathering prizes for another movie trivia contest to be held during the next in-game Event, but that’s a ways off and I’m sure I can gather more stuff by then. This will be an entirely different type of contest. This is a test to see how good you are at recommending new music to a complete stranger. Essentially, I’ll post a selection of various songs that I like, and then your mission, if you choose to accept it, is to post other songs that you think I may like and that I haven’t heard before. Then I’ll pick the songs I like the most and award prizes to the people who first suggested them.
- Each person is allowed 3 official entries. If I already know any of your songs, I’ll let you know and you can submit another one. If you feel like sharing more, that’s cool, but only the first 3 will count towards prize consideration.
- Please provide a link to any music you wish to share, either through youtube or some other similar website. If you can’t post links in the thread for any reason, just post the name of the song and the artist, I’ll do my best to track the songs down.
- Songs must be submitted on this thread so I can keep track easier.
- Each person is only eligible to win one prize, unless there are less than 5 entrants.
- Deadline to submit songs is Sunday, April 28th, 2019 at 11:59 p.m. PDT.
- Judging is purely subjective, so don’t feel bad if you don’t win. It’s all just personal taste.
The winners will be able to choose from the following*:
Agent Dossier: Terry Laputo
Agent Dossier: Giovanni Bellanova
Agent Dossier: Jayesh Suresh
Signet of the Neophyte
Signet of Nemain
Honeycomb T-shirt, Faction Colored
Nilfheim Tiny Pet
*Edit: I’ll remove the items others have already picked so it’s easier to see what’s still available.
If there are more than 20 entrants, I’ll extend the prizes to the top 10 winners.

As an added bonus, I don’t want anyone to feel this was a waste of their time, so each person who enters the contest will also be given an imaginary voucher redeemable in-game at your nearest Nytha for 5 Elaborate Glyph Fragments. Meaning, anyone who submits songs can send me a tell in the game and I’ll trade you the fragments. If your character name is different from your forum name, please provide your character name in your post along with your songs.
Edit: The contest has officially ended. Thank you to all those who shared music here, and I hope everyone was able to find some new stuff they liked. I’ll post the results here and contact the winners via private message and in-game mail (for those that provided a player name). Please be patient with prize delivery as I have to let the winners chose from the available prizes in order, and I don’t know how long it will take to hear back from them.
