I just got an email from Funcom making me a reasonably tempting offer:
Special subscription offers and double XP throughout November!
Today we launched a new campaign with some massive rewards on purchases of longer period subscriptions.
If you extend your subscription to Age of Conan in November, you will receive some amazing rewards:
Extend by 3 months and get a guaranteed access to the beta test for The Secret World * Extend by 6 months and get an epic helmet for Age of Conan with a 10% XP boost + the reward above Extend by 12 months and get the Age of Conan: Rise of the Godslayer expansion for free plus both rewards mentioned above ** If you just recently extended your subscription, don’t worry. Those who have committed to the 6 month or 12 month subscription after the 6th of October 2009 will automatically receive the corresponding reward too. Gametime purchased now will immediately give Veteran Points.
This offer is available until December 1st 2009, so don’t miss it!
To properly celebrate this campaign we also activate double XP in Age of Conan for everyone all through the month of November! Use the /claim command to receive potions of double XP!
* Access to later stages of the closed beta, date of access to be announced
** When launched in first half of 2010
Each bonus item can only be received once per account. The helmet is made available to all characters on your account.
This will require some quick contemplation. Most likely I’m going to pass.
