I haven’t felt inclined to suffer the competitiveness and conflict of EVE over the last week, so I’ve spent a couple sessions undocked mining in the relative safety of a Skiff. On and off I had the company of an industrious new player who came and went in a Venture mining frigate. I carefully placed myself at the opposite end of the belt we shared, and we spoke no words, but I felt more of a connection to that unknown person than I do to the more boisterous and conceited of the power players.
This morning I had the pleasure of reading CCP’s latest (and in my opinion fantastic) Chronicle:
I’m not a lore aficionado, but it was one of those documents which nicely pulled together information from books, previous chronicles and the in game storylines. A Jove cruiser generating its own wormhole, discussions of the Talocan, the Jove Stasis Faction, and the nature of Anoikis. Well worth a read if EVE is more than just a bunch of game mechanics to you.
