Dual Universe Sleepers

Recommended Posts

Many followed the affair - some a little too closely for their own good - but many did not, so I shed some candlelight on the recent conflict between Dark Star Imperium and The United Empire, and its regrettable consequences.


Please keep in mind that this topic is 1. a bit partial, because no-one is truly "neutral", and 2. abridged, because I kept superfluous and/ or unknown parts out.

 

Now we can all archive this, stop wasting NQ's time and carry on as better people.

That feeling when I watch a cast about DU with high standing members of the community and they go "I wish someone would compile DU's historical events in some sort of released timeline" and I'm like:

Indeed, if i need any information that was ever relevant i always check your archives first, sometimes it takes a good deal of time to find it but it is all there :)

"Alpha 2: Dual Evolution" has come ! These are exciting times.

 

Apart from DUHS and SpartanCast, however, most news/history/talkshows initiatives have gone silent. That leaves quite a few lamps to pick up in the night...

 

Would you grab one and walk this Earth ?

If we could find some people willing to help out on creating a monthly update, I would be happy to fund the effort. I would love to have a unbiased news cast focused purely on DU updates.

I plan on doing that if I get help and support from community, the only problem is NDA as my idea is to make a monthly (at first) magazine filled with player stories which is essentially DU lore, and that will act like a time capsule capturing our history in DU. And we always can open older issues and see what was going on back then, conflicts, constructs, meta, whatever players are willing to share.

Dont mind giving you a platform to launch from space, more the merrier I always say.

3 years, time flies !

 

Interesting game of No-U going on right now on the Portal, let's keep our eyes on the ball while in other, non-disclosed dimensions, some people cut pieces into pieces with pieces.

 

Fascinating.

"Astral Scribe". I like it, it has a nice ring to it, doesn't it ?

 

But I remain fond of the term "Librarian", for reasons...

 

... 40.000 reasons roughly.

 

DICE Race was very nice but this needs your attention. Let's walk together.

Looking back at the community and the way its members came, went and changed is a weird hobby. Looking back at Novaquark and the way they changed along their own game is even weirder.

 

Alpha 3 is underway. Possible side effects: it may rock your world.

Also possibly people may leave xD

As the name implies, Dual Universe Sleepers is a temporary initiative: it will cease, or at least change, when we awake, i.e. according to NQ's current lore, at Release.


I'll keep making daily notes for my own use but will then switch to my "real" original project: collecting and recording knowledge and history through an ingame library with ingame readable "books" (programming boards with screens and buttons, most probably), open to public use in a safe area.

 

Details are still in the works but there will be books, as many of them as possible, from different writers and in several languages.

Alpha 3 is proving to be a... complex affair, but results are here, cue Station Building Contest.

 

Covid is hurting the world right now but fortunately, it spared Novaquark and Dual Universe, at least in the short term, and their work is ongoing; in the meantime, I snipped 3 months away from the logs and completed the archived chronology accordingly.

 

Whatever happens, we all share a history. Stay safe everyone.

Still there, still almost good.

 

Lexikon is shaping up, in plans, writings and test modules at least.

 

I am also starting to fill my phonebook: do your org have among their ranks a "lore master", an archivist, a historian with the designated job of keeping trace of all events, internal and external ? If so, I'd like to maintain regular contact with this person, please let me know.

I have updated the "Chronology" page with the latest, January to April, notable events.

 

I am also putting an end to the "Logs", my daily notes, keeping them to myself from now on, both in preparation of the Lexikon project and because I feel they are redundant with initiatives such as DUHS (you'll find me there anyway) or content producers advertising themselves (lately: NMC, Coach Willy and Spaaaced, among others).

 

I'll be using the "Archives" section to post some more elaborated writings in the future.

I wrote a little piece about one of Dual Universe's mightiest "Paper Empires": the Cinderfall Syndicate.

 

This one had four lives and four deaths, before even being reborn, so I'm thinking choosing the Phoenix as their emblem was some damn good hindsight.

 

(As always, getting things right is my top priority, so tell me if you spot mistakes or inconsistencies, I'm so bad at dates sometimes - and i DO mean "chronological digits")

Exeptional work, @Peregrin, I salute you.

Not only interesting read, but quite a story to learn from. And learn well.

 

Still, I strongly believe in republican ideals of umbrella alliances or, more exactly,  in what they can eventualy transcend in positive direction. While very vulnerable in infancy and taxing to maintain in balance, they hold within them this kernel of ever evaisive, but beautiful dream of better way for humanity, when free people stand together for not what is convinient, but what is right, where measure of strenght is will not to dominite, but to protect. And you know, at the end, good guys can have some medals from princesses, not that boring to not to try.

 

Spoiler

 

 

Sorry, i'm probably just balding man who still believe in fairytales 🐭
