I'm glad people are digging it. This was the first of the fiction shorts I wrote, exactly one year ago yesterday. I wrote it for the team. With a big team like TRS, it's easy for people to work hard, and contribute a lot to the game, but still have no idea what's going on outside their discipline.
So the short stories were my way of letting everyone else know what was going on with the characters. We always knew we wanted to release these to the community, we just wanted to wait until we were closer to release.
We are now close to release.
