  • How Can I Submit a Short Story for Eve? in EVE Communication Center

    Bataav wrote:
    Post it in the Fiction Forum.

    Right, Fiction Forum for posting fiction, or asking lore questions before writing, or getting feedback after posting. Also check out Backstage fiction + fiction discussion for additional inspiration. Eve Fiction for across the whole player base (good), Backstage for hanging with writer community (also good).

  • How do you think the speak? in EVE Communication Center

    According to the Language Translators Chronicle, there is no common language in New Eden. All different groups speak different languages, and can't understand each other without interpreters. The exception is pod pilots. Their ships have translator modules, which translate any written or spoken language into the pilot's preferred language, and transmit it to their minds via the pod neural interface. But if they're outside their pods, they're just like everyone else-- they don't know what someone is saying unless they speak that language.

    (This gets overlooked in Eve fiction, maybe even in the Chronicles or official novels themselves. Seems the multilingual aspect could add some color to a story. What's it like with people speaking X number of languages in Jita 4-4?)

  • Code got robbed? Can anybody confirm this? in EVE Communication Center

    I thought loyalanon got permabanned awhile back?

  • Amore Tank you Hearts fiction writing contest in EVE Communication Center

    Some of these works so beautiful!

  • RvB moves ‘home’ – 100% New Management Team in EVE Communication Center

    RVB has given a lot of us some really great times. Perfect stepping stone for people who've kind of mastered EVE's pve intro, and are looking for some low-commitment pvp.

  • What are you listening to today? in EVE Communication Center

    When you need a really just fine jamming song: The Stranglers, 'The Raven'

  • Average wage in ISK? 💰 in EVE Communication Center

    This old thread discussed and did calculations based on the ISK price of Wheat, Tobacco, etc. Some of the posts are pretty well thought out. One poster's conclusion: Average planetside annual salary is approx. 1,400 ISK. Another one's: Space station resident's daily food cost is maybe .02 - 3 ISK.

    This thread from 2012 links to an EVE News story saying: "To put this in perspective, an average family living on a planet might, in the course of a lifetime, accrue savings of about 10,000 isk." (The link doesn't work though-- it goes to the current edition of EVE News).

    Hmm..not convinced. I always felt like Minmatar would listen to old, dirty rock music like The Cramps.

    Alright, I screwed up the multi-embedded quotes, wanted to preserve, sorry about that. Smile
    How about if sardonic Amarr aristocracy partying sounds something like this? "Regiment," Byrne & Eno
    Maybe home and neighborhood Amarr music sounds a little like this: "Persian Love Song," Holger Czukay

  • New player experience (Amarr) in EVE Communication Center

    Interesting perspectives. When I was creating my account, I pretty much automatically went with Minmatar. I was into punk and post-punk music, non-conformity, and anti-establishment things in general, so it had to be Min. (Also at the time, Min characters were the only ones that could be made very punk-looking, with tattoos, piercings, odd spikey head-ring things, etc.) I could see how other people might want to play future-tech hedonist hipster Gallente, or even Amarr slaveowning zealots (if they wanted to play bad guys). But corporate totalitarian Caldari-- who would ever...? I couldn't imagine that.

    Just goes to show what a great job the original backstory designers did. Each race somehow appeals to different kinds of different individuals.

    A bump for a great event!

  • Minmatar stations have too much bling. in EVE Communication Center

    OK, our tastes are a little gaudy, but at least we don't fly around in gold-tinsel ships. Smile

  • Merry Christmas! in EVE Communication Center

    Been an action packed year-- the CCP sandbox hosts and Eve people delivered once again! OMG, if you think about the past 12 months events. Bah on that though.... Merry Christmas and goodness us all! o7

    Guys thank you so much for running the competition, first time since I was a kid I've actually finished a story and given I've only been playing the game a few months, was not expecting anything. So much so I missed my name for a minute because I scrolled straight to the honorable mentions where all my hopes were pinned!

    The competition didn't just get me writing, it got me really digging into the lore, and gave me a new appreciation for the game. It's one of the most enjoyable things I've done since I joined Eve, and hopefully now I have the ISK to still be subscribed this time next year for the next one!

    Many thanks Sam and all, and congratulations again to all the other writers! You guys have serious skills.

    See you next year!

    Congratulations on a well-earned win, Breeze One! The judges uniformly loved your story. Apologies for messing up your name in the results announcement. "Breeze Light" is the name of a Japanese beauty care product in my bathroom. OopsSmile

  • Pod and Planet fiction contest - 54 bil isk in prizes in EVE Gameplay Center

    That's really nice that you're sharing reviews, Nomistrav. And the writing advice as well. I especially like the suggestion about feeling free to start in the middle and deal with the beginning later.
