It is perhaps an understatement of galactic proportions to say that here on Tau Station, we love story. We all have a love of reading, of good fantasy and sci fi. Most of us are also storytellers in our own right, be it through the visual medium, that of words, games, or the lost art of holo-weaving.
It is with no small amount of pride, therefore, that we react to moments of our own Citizens and players picking up the figurative holo-quill and creating their own stories!
Today we’re showcasing one such fantastic event, Unofficial Tau Station Short Story Contest!
