    I am doing a newsletter for my current Wolfpack Empire test game, which will come
    out every two weeks. In it, I will run down what has happened in the game in the
    style of a local tabloid, in this case, the Bunker Bulletin. The game has just started recently, so the action should pick up.

    That is very cool! I haven't seen anyone doing something like this to promote a game. My only recommendation would be to add some sort of ASCII Masthead so it looks a bit more like a newsletter... might help explain the content for out of touch people like me.

    I will log into your board and check it out.

    Have a good one!

    Thank you so much for the feedback. That's a great idea, I'll get to work on it
    for the next issue! I've been adding a lot of help related content on the game to
    my website, as well as links to the original game website, game clients, how to connect and get started.
