TKW Prime's excellent backstory material

In The Beginning

has been added to the official DW archive. Its factual/scientific approach sits nicely with Korivak's more personal coverage of the same events in

The Birth of Deathracing.

Wow. Thanks Sam. I've never published before and didn't realize what a rush it would give me to see my words displayed like that.

Yeah, the written word is powerful. I get a rush knowing my game inspires creative writing.

Nice piece of writing. :D

I would have avoided insisting on intelligence of humans. It is not deserved. You are mentioning it twice in the text and it feels redundant.

Something around the natural capacity to adapt to an evolving environment would have been better I think.

Humans do survive, because they do adapt.

Actually, I mention humans as being clever, not intelligent.  A subtle difference.  Cleverness is more a native cunning or a show of superficial skill rather than high intelligence.

Great stuff. I really like it.

One thought is that there were a couple of moments where I thought a screengrab would make a great illustration (like the ruins of Lost Oasis, or the graveyards in several places). On your voyages through Evan, maybe you'll find some perfect screenshots to complement your words.

Outstanding piece. As a fairly noob player, i'm still going through a lot of these older pages, and i haven't been disappointed. This a very creative and talented community.
