No. ;) She hates it.

Cheers,

Yup, that seems to be a common feature of our Mo Sistas... (my wife is struggling to look at me at the moment...)

All,

Just a quick update to wish you all a very merry Christmas and thank you for all your support throughout the year. Much of the hard work is done and 2014 promises to be an exciting year for Elite, both in the game and the fiction.

Our Kickstarter looks to be heading for a nail-biting conclusion on January the 1st, so please jump aboard if you haven't done so yet!

A post as usual is on the website - http://www.drewwagar.com

See you in the new year.

Folks,

We're organising a premier Elite Meet during 2014. A £25 pledge to Fantastic Books not only gets you books, music and DVDs, but it also get you an invitation to this event - exclusive location to be confirmed.

The authors, musicians, sound engineers will be present, coupled with projectors, gaming rigs, food, costumes and everything else 'Elite'. Here's Dan to describe it all. It's going to be big.

Meet the authors, hear readings, play Elite Dangerous on an Oculus Rift and grab even more Elite goodies.

A £50 pledge gets you a golden ticket with even more bonuses. We're into the final 100 hours for our Kickstarter. Now is the time! Join us, Commanders!

We've got 4 days to go and around 9k to raise.

Our final battle - http://tinyurl.com/fantasticaudio

Cheers,

Drew.

Hooray! Not that there was any real doubt, of course, but still - good to get the official Good Word nonetheless!

Great news! Not that it was ever in doubt! 8)

Congratulations, Drew! :D
Most games have some sort of paddling-pool-and-water-wings beginning to ease you in: Oolite takes the rather more Darwinian approach of heaving you straight into the ocean, often with a brick or two in your pockets for luck. ~ Disembodied
