Outpost Zebra

Interview with The Federation Alpha

0 Comment

Once upon a time (all good stories start with that), I wandered into lands owned by The Federation Alpha (and by lands, I mean a Dual Universe Discord server). While taking in the sights, I was accosted by a giant fiery ‘G’. At first, I thought my time had come, but the fiery G turned to me and said (and I am paraphrasing) “Ask me questions. Ask me anything.” So I did.

It turns out ‘G’ was not a fiery harbinger of doom, but the very friendly President Ginger of The Federation Alpha. We had a good chat over some hot chocolate and tea and I even managed to entice Prime Minister Chrissi into the tea party.

Novaquark’s Dual Universe is by all accounts an ambitious game in the making.

Organisation close up: The Eldritch Nation

Greetings and salutations citizens, today I had the chance to meet with Zamaro from The Eldritch Nation. Usually, I would describe my travels to reach my destination but, for this interview, things were a bit…different. How different? I was asked to sign an NDA in a room without windows by a grim faced man. I would like to say the two men behind my chair weren’t as threatening, but I wasn’t allowed to look at their faces. The Eldritch Nation is an organisation that has its feet firmly planted in military doctrine.

I say a month long, because that’s how long I was aware that my Alioth Defence Force sticker was missing from my door.
