Elite Dangerous Lore Tour 2020 by Drew Wagar

Elite Dangerous has a history and lore that dates back to the year 1984, the launch of the original Elite game. Much of this lore is hidden, buried, inaccessible – even forgotten, lost in the void. So join me, the author of the official Elite Dangerous Novels Reclamation and Premonition, on a farewell tour of the lore, alongside special guests, online and in-game, on a last final quest to rediscover the background of this decade spanning game. (Drew Wagar)

-FAQ-

When?

20:00 GMT/UTC Thursday (Special events to be arranged on certain Saturdays) – immediately after the official Frontier Thursday stream.

Where?

In-game and on twitch.tv/drewwagar

Discord?

https://discord.gg/QgD5TCe

PC, Xbox, PS4?

I play only on PC, and do not have an account on the other systems. However the community may be able to provide alternatives. Stay tuned or discuss options on the Discord.

Private Group?

Yes. Search for “Drew Wagar” on PC and make a friend request. I will invite you to the group. (Rules apply. Strictly no PVP or player harassment in this group. Infractions will be dealt with by immediate exclusion, no exceptions, no debate.)

Which mode?

You are welcome to fly in your preferred mode; solo, private or open. (Your safety cannot be guaranteed in open mode, though I will do my best to police the private group)

Can I send you a friend request in-game?

Sure. CMDR Drew Wagar.

EDSM?

Yes, you can join the Lore Tour here.

Where I can find out more?

Check out Twitter, the official ED Forums post and the Discord channel.

What ship?

Run what you brung, CMDR. (Recommend SRV equipped and 20+ jump range at this point). You may wish to bring a cheap ship in case of any ‘incidents’ with other players or the environment.

Weapons?

You might need them, just observe private group rules as stated.

Permits?

Worth getting permits for Sol, Achernar and Alioth in advance if you can. If you can’t, arrange to hitch a multi-crew ride with another CMDR who has them. (Some grind required.)

Can we ask questions?

Of course. Join the twitch stream live or comment below or on the Discord.

Can’t make that date?

I will upload to youtube afterwards for your viewing pleasure.

What’s going to happen?

You will be give a system locale to rendezvous at (see below) and I will take you on a tour of the lore. You can join other CMDRs in-game or fly solo, watch live or after the event.

This is hype and marketing for a new Elite Dangerous book?

Much as I would love to write on CMDR, no it’s not. I’m doing this tour because I enjoy the background lore and think it’s not very obvious to new, and even some seasoned, players of Elite Dangerous. It’s just for fun.
