Dragon Empires newsletter - 20th September
Welcome to the mid-month September Dragon Empires newsletter. It's a pleasure to announce a few interesting Dragon Empires events coming up in the next two weeks as well as a new competition!

Art Development Diary
We had a great response from the first in our diary entries on the development of a monkey empire building and so I'm sure you'll be interested in seeing the second instalment. Check out our dev diaries section on Friday the 27th for an interview with the modeller building the monkey empire house and learn about how he went about it.

Dev chat
There will be two Stratics House of Commons Dragon Empires dev chats on Monday the 30th at 7pm GMT and 7pm PST. With all the recent art releases I'm sure we'll have a lot to talk about. As usual I will be there and it is likely we'll see Ted Carron, our Producer and Mark Zechial, designer, as well as various other staff members. To access the chats point your irc client to irc.stratics.com and join #de-dev chat or go to
http://chat.stratics.com/ and follow the 'chat now' link on the left, type in a nickname, put de-devchat in the channel box and click connect. See you there!

Limerick competition!
In honour of the several Irish people who have recently joined our team we are having a limerick competition! Your task, should you chose to accept it, is to write a witty limerick on the theme of Dragon Empires (or the team) and then to send it in to us at dec@codemasters.com. The competition runs from the 20th of September to the 16th of October and everyone is eligible to enter and you may enter as many times as you wish. The winner of the competition will have his or her limerick plastered all over the web and will receive a first-phase beta account, a Dragon Empires T-Shirt and a signed concept art render. Please check the terms and conditions for the competition here

If you don't know how what a limerick is check these links which should get your creative juices flowing!

Fan site of the week
Moonshade -
http://www.moonshade.com Moonshade is one of our oldest and largest fan sites and has a great wealth of information they've gathered from the official sites and dug up on their own. Check out their sections on trade and the economy for more detail on these topics in particular.



Thanks, and I'll talk to you all again soon.
