On Saturday, The Evesploratory Society [ESOCI] brought an Astrahus-class citadel online in Jakanerva. Designated the EVE Travel Rest Stop in honor of Mark726’s famous blog EVE Travel, the installation is a waystation for use by all explorers and travelers in the area. The opening of this citadel marks the second installation in a planned handful of explorer waystations arrayed […]Read more "ESOCI and ‘The Explorers Club’ Waystations"
She’s still burning. It’s been almost a year since the Avatar-class titan, TES Seraph, was abruptly destroyed by a powerful contingent of Drifter Battleships. As she broke up in-space, it became clear to observers in-system that Empress Jamyl Sarum I went down with her flagship. On 2015-08-21 at 22:14, that observation was confirmed in an official broadcast, In […]Read more "Princess Jamyl’s Inheritance"
Thinker, Raider, Sister, Tribe. It’s well-known that the Sisters of Eve are obsessed with unlocking the mysteries of the Eve Gate. It’s also well-known that the research and development arm of the SOE corporation, The Sanctuary, is the primary body entrusted with that mandate. What is less well understood is how that all relates to one of […]Read more "Sisters | Society – Part 6"
The Society and The “Hyperconsciousness” Agenda An alternative title for this chapter could be The Society and The Book, but let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Let’s first step back and talk about what the Hyperconsciousness Agenda is and why is significant to our Sisters | Society narrative. The Society’s collusion with Sansha’s Nation was the crux of their fall […]Read more "Sisters | Society – Part 5"
The Society and Sansha’s Nation The Society of Conscious Thought and its research hadn’t gone unnoticed outside of Jove Space and there was at least one formidable individual with an army of followers who was particularly keen to learn more. Almost 200 years after the SoCT was founded, an individual by the name of Sansha […]Read more "Sisters | Society – Part 4"
The Society of Conscious Thought Like the Sisters of Eve, the Society of Conscious Thought (SoCT) began as a spiritual organization. It was founded by the Jove Ior Labron in 23044 to as a means to discover the meaning of life by exploring humanity’s spirit and psyche. This small cult appears to have gradually matured into a powerful […]Read more "Sisters | Society – Part 3"
The Sisters of Eve From the standpoint of the general public, the Sisters of Eve (SOE) are a force for good. Formed as a neutral humanitarian aid organization to provide aid to those in need during the century-long Gallente-Caldari War, the Sisters saw further action in the subsequent Amarr-Jove conflict and in the Minmatar Rebellion. The […]Read more "Sisters | Society – Part 2"
Massive thanks to Makoto Priano for graciously volunteering his services as an editor/advisor for this series. Introduction I had the mixed fortune of joining the Eve Online community right in the midst of what has been deemed by lore buffs to be one of the most exciting and tumultuous times in the game’s history. A […]Read more "Sisters | Society – Part 1"
Today marks the final stage in what has been the long process of rounding-up the assets I’ve scattered about the Empire. With any luck, by server downtime, I will have everything safely stored at Signal Cartel HQ in the The Sanctuary Institute of Paleocybernetics orbiting Thera XII. This, of course, runs counter to the esteemed strategy of “diversifying […]Read more "Storm Prep: Withdrawing from Empire Space"
It’s been several weeks since my last post on the monoliths of New Eden, but a lot has been done in the interim. Many thanks to all the capsuleers who have reported sightings of monoliths throughout the cluster; particularly fellow Signal Cartel explorers, Breysyth Asythe (@Breysyth_Asythe) and Radical Divinity (@RadicalDivinity). Findings in Brief Thanks in […]Read more "Encounters: The Monoliths (Part II)"
Pilot: Markus Vulpine Ship Type: Stratios Ship Name: Urocyon Hello and welcome to Episode 1 of my new blog series Explorer Ships which highlights the ships and fits of Eve’s diverse community of Explorers. To break the ice I figured that I would go first and highlight my ship, a Stratios operating under the name Urocyon. I had toyed with […]Read more "Explorer Ships | Episode 1: Markus Vulpine’s “Deep Space” Stratios"
Special thanks to Radical Divinity for pointing me toward an entrance to this system. I took a break from writing a multi-part post today to continue my exploration of the Unidentified Wormhole (aka Drifter Wormhole) entitled “Vidette”. The technical term for this system is J164710 and I’ll be referring to the sites in this system using […]Read more "Encounters: Unidentified Wormhole “Vidette”"
Things we know: Drifters are collecting Capsuleer corpses The collected corpses are likely being converted into Drifter combatants like Apollo Tyrannos and Artemis Tyrannos. Ok, that’s pretty straightforward. Drifters are collecting Capsuleer corpses to presumably create more Drifters. Thus, by denying them kills (and by cleaning up after kills of their own), Capsuleers could presumably help […]Read more "The Potential Drifter Army Floating in Space"
Nothing irks me more than bullies. Liberty, equality, and critical reasoning are all things that I hold in the utmost regard. The press should be free, scientific inquiry should be free, and no one, particularly a social construct, should stand in the way of those inalienable rights. So when the DED threatened to issue death […]Read more "Regarding Hilen Tukoss’ remains and the DED"
Nothing really prepares you for seeing it for the first time. In the vivid organic formalism of New Eden, seeing something so simple and Minimal is as shocking as the sheer size of what you are approaching… This is Part 1 of a multi-part research series surrounding the Black Monolith phenomena in New Eden. My exploration roams […]Read more "Encounters: The Monoliths (Part I)"
Tomorrow, CCP will roll-out the first of the SOE Sanctuary skins. The dark skins take the SOE ships (Astero, Stratios, and Nestor) and completely transform their aesthetic. Pure white is replaced by deep gun-metal blue, broken-up only by discrete gray highlights; giving the SOE ships a much more austere countenance that is, perhaps, a harbinger of the dark […]Read more "New SOE Sanctuary Skins and the Legend of the Stratios “Emergency Responder”"
Hello all! I need your help with a new series highlighting the ships piloted by Eve’s explorers. I’ve been playing Eve Online for a little over 100 days and in that short time, I’ve come to realize that my fellow Explorers are a diverse and intriguing bunch. Some are newbies just starting-out on their journey through The Cluster. […]Read more "Explorer Ships: A New Blog Series Needs Your Help!"
UPDATE 05/27/2015: Thanks so much for the feedback via Twitter and Reddit! Special thanks to explorEvE on Reddit who has pointed out: The site has featured in eve travel The site has been there since at least 2007. G5ED-Y is in the amber cytoserocin hotspot. I think it’s gonna turn out to be more about blue pill than […]Read more "Encounters: Taibu State G5DE-Y War Machine"
“Real life” kept me away from Eve for the better part of a month, but I’m back! After catching up on all the EveMail, Reddit threads, and Twitter twittery, I came across a video from The Scope sourced from footage taken by missing idealistic scientist posterboy Hilen Tukoss. Curiosity piqued, I decided to devote the next […]Read more "Chasing the Ghost of Hilen Tukoss: Mysteries of G5ED-Y"
