Excerpt from an unknown Commander’s Log:
We arrived on the outskirts of this Galaxy’s known systems some time ago, a mere stop on our ongoing “dimensional exploration” as we searched for a way back home… or so we thought.
Our Elite scouts ventured out across space, undaunted by what could lay before them in this Dangerous unknown expanse, and what they found was a galaxy oppressed by the same type of dictatorial regimes that had once sought to enslaved us.
High Command reacted as expected, our search will continue, but our task force has been ordered to lend aid to the locals. Our mission is clear: to rid the galaxy of those who would seek to rule through fear, intimidation, violence and oppression; to free the masses from the shackles of the powerful few that believe they have a right to pass judgement on others; to defend our brothers and sisters; to crush our enemies.
Our goals are always accomplished, our enemies are never forgiven.
Fly, Fight and Die with Honour!
The Fatal Shadows is a long-standing not-for-profit gaming organisation that has stood the test of time and game developer whims alike for over two decades… and counting.
Formed in 1997, the membership has ebbed and flowed as we moved from game to game, picking up new recruits as the old guard inevitably focused on the ultimate immersive experience called life. But even then, the bonds we form remain strong, and rare is the member that can stay away from the call of adventure by the side of his comrades.
Over the years, FS has flown its flag across the Jumpgate void, the Anarchy Online and Neocron wastelands, the troubled worlds of Star Wars Galaxies, the lush plains of WoW and many more “dimensions” that capture the imagination and set the spirit aflame.
Our journey has only just begun; our aim is to have fun.
Our Discord is located here
and forms a key part of our communications. Apply on Inara and then pop over to our Discord to introduce yourself. We encourage using Discord voice while flying... it's a lot easier than typing, especially in VR!
We now exist in both the PC and PS4 Galaxy, but we long for the day that all Open sessions are linked and we can fly together. Until then we lack an Xbox presence.
Fatal Shadows Forum
is the place where we check in for more persistent comms. It also works as our main hub between games, and for helping organise Out Of Game stuff... like LAN parties without a LAN!
We have an entry on the Elite Faction Wiki
, where you can read the tale of how we arrived in this galaxy.
