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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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.

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 […]

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.

“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 […]
