Winning with The Lesser: Part 2, Dragyri Slave Special Edition!

EC_ShardSlave

We’re back with Part 2 of our tribute to the oft-overlooked Slaves. The powers that be decided the newer sub-factions, Shadow and Earth Castes, deserved their own section and it’s not hard to see why. For Shadow, they actually don’t employ slaves AT ALL, and instead use a unique combination of refurbished C.O.R.E. models and trained Spiderlings.

So, how should they be used?

moffit token

Since Dark Age began, there have been a few champions of the game that rose up from the ashes and climbed above the chaos to serve as demo volunteers, event coordinators, Playtesters, and even writers or editors of our game and its products.

“Whatever it is, Cap’n,” Roan swiveled his chair away from the navigator’s console and gestured to the holo-image floating above his station, “it’s huge.”

“Give me a full wake scan,” Captain Jake Flay nodded to the twins, Karol and Schoeller, sitting nearby at the electronics pillar in the center of the bridge. “What is that big, bad beastie?”

“Aye,” they answered in unison.

“Three parsecs from portside, come about rimward,” Suzy Belle, first mate of the Long Haul and frequent paramour of the captain himself, ordered. Her eye for piracy was second only to Jake Flay on board this ship, and she could sense a truly big score in the numbers flashing across her datapad as the information fed from the particle sweep of their potential target’s engine wash...
