Distant Worlds 2

  • Newsletter 4
  • Departure from Polo Harbour marks the end of Stage 1.

    Stage 2: Building the Galactic Core Starport and discovering secrets at the heart of the galaxy.
    Stage 2 will offer new challenges as we begin to leave the last human outposts far behind, in addition some of the optional points of interest along the Stage 2 route may be in locations requiring large jump ranges, and/or the use of neutron boosts if you want to visit them!

    The main goal of this stage though will be to complete the 2nd phase of the community goal at the very heart of the galaxy when we arrive at WP7 in a couple of weeks time. After which the fleet will continue to explore the core, and gradually make its way out toward the far side.

    Fleet attrition will most likely begin to bite during this stage, as was the case with DW1, many commanders see Sagittarius A as an adequate goal in which to call it a day – and this is perfectly fine – DW2 will be no different!
