Fiction Diary #2
Michael here with the latest fiction diary. In this video I discuss the Elite story approvals process, the history of the Pilot's Federation and answer some questions posted in the DDF.
In other Elite: Dangerous news we're pleased to announce that the physical add-ons will start going out this week as the deal has now been finalised. We apologise that this this has taken longer than we expected. If you haven't ordered anything and still want to (or you hadn't provided the required information needed for this round) then we will have another opportunity in the next few months for you to do so.
You can still pledge to support the game via our website at http:///elite.frontier.co.uk if you still wish to get your hands on any goodies.
The latest newsletter will also be sent out very soon (hopefully later today!).
To finish this update I've included a drabble based in the Elite universe. Drabbles are 100 word stories, that have to be exactly 100 words. We'll be featuring some from our other Elite authors in future newsletters and fiction diaries:
Homecoming by Michael Brookes
The observation deck was the best place to watch the ships at Lave station. It was always busy with ships from all over the galaxy. Dirk spent every hour he could sat on the bench, his feet not quite reaching the floor.
He watched the ships come and go, marking each on his personal slate. The security guards joked that the boy’s records were more accurate than the station computer’s. But it was one ship in particular he waited for. Seeing the battered old trader he’d leap from the seat and rush to the arrival bays.
His daddy was home.
Thanks everyone for watching, I'll be back soon with further updates.
