Hopefully he's hard at work. Perhaps prompted by Drew completing the first draft of his book... ;)

Just saw this on Selezen's page and on kickstarter and I'm super excited!

Wow. I've been away too long. I apologise for that. I'm BACK now, and kicking bottom.

Status report:

ALPHA WAS RELEASED YESTERDAY!

Still off work with this "condition" thing, but trying to knuckle down with the RPG and take as much advantage as I can of the extra time to do something I enjoy. IN this case, WRITING AN RPG! ;-)

Actually, writing this has reminded me that amongst all the contact with alpha testers I have forgotten to actually announce this on Kickstarter. Darn.

Anyway, there have been a few updates since September, so if you want more information then slope over to http://daftworks.co.uk/eliterpg and everything's in the blog.

Thanks for the support, guys!

Dave

Bump.

Hi guys. Still working on this. No news hasn't necessarily been good news, but in this case it's moderately good. I'm still here, still writing and still testing stuff.

So how have you all been anyway? ;-)

Hey! Good to see you again, mate! 8)

Doin' good, here.

Good good. Certainly loving the new look to Oolite. 1.82 is downloading now and will be played soon (tm).

In the meantime (attention whore mode engage) if you want to catch up with me and the goings on at Daftworks Towers regarding the RPG, then I'm live streaming ED on Monday nights at 8pm uk time - I usually chat about ED and the RPG and other random stuff during the broadcast. twitch.tv/selezen.

The EE updates are now video based rather than text-based. They're available on my youtube channel (youtube.com/hughesd73) on Monday nights if you miss the live update just before the Monday night stream.

(attention whore mode disengage).

Hi guys. Just wanted to let you know that the latest updates are on YouTube for this project.

http://youtube.com/hughesd73

Look for the Elite Encounters playlist or just browse through the most recent videos.

I did a special one yesterday about the new Horizons expansion for ED and how it affects the RPG.

Er. [taps mike].

Is this thing on.

[brushes the dust off this topic]

Er. I just wanted to say, this Elite Encounters thing. It's finished now. I released it a couple of weeks ago in PDF format.

It's pretty good. Feel free to grab a copy from my online store.

https://daftworks.co.uk/store.

If you like. No pressure. But it does have about 60 pages of ELITE AND ELITE DANGEROUS BACKGROUND LORE AND INFORMATION LIKE WHAT NO-ONE ELSE HAS DONE BEFORE.

Ahem.

;-)
