Dragon Empires newsletter - 4th October 2002
Hello and welcome to the first October newsletter. How time flies! I've been here around five fun months now.

We have a few interesting bits and pieces to tell you this week that you may not have seen on our site. We also have some useful dates for you to keep an eye on.

Art Development Diary
The second dev diary entry went up on Friday, you can read it
here. In the second diary entry we talk to Trevor and look at how he took the monkey empire building model sheets from the first diary entry and turned them into 3D objects to go into the game world.

Limerick competition!
Our limerick competition is proving very popular, thanks to everyone who is taking part! If you haven't entered yet then follow this link
to read all about how to enter and what you could win. The competition will end on the 16th and we'll announce the winner in the next newsletter.

Last month
September has been a great month and October looks to be just as interesting. A lot of assets have been completed, both code and graphical and it is fun to see it all come together. The server was completely rebuilt to improve it and with much of that code complete we again have a somewhat playable build. Furthermore, new character models are well on their way and you should see some images of them in the next newsletter! Check for that in two weeks time.
