Lunarisse Aspenstar asked one of my characters if she was going to be in any more magazines. That got Serpent thinking that maybe she could be the editor of a magazine herself. (not a chance)
Her corp, Shadows of the Empire is creating an Amarr-oriented magazine targeting Holder caste - Amarr mercenaries and templarii/classiarii and so on. What we’re going to do is ads, interviews and articles pertaining to Amarr culture. It’s going to be a normal sort of Amarr magazine this time, not one for teenaged girls.
The name of the magazine is Atash-Amarr
I don’t know that it will be produced on a regular basis. The goal is to just have fun with this first issue and then see where it goes. I could write all of it myself but I thought it might be fun to ask if the community wanted to put their name on it, so to speak.
Please see the first issue of the Edinburgh Review for an example of the sort of thing we would be looking for as far as topics.
I cannot promise when it will be done. It’s just for fun, there are no prizes except for the fact that you can get your name in a weird niche roleplaying community, and there is some sense of permanence to it since one never knows when the forums will go tits up and they shuffle us off to a new version. There are two very specific things I want from people more organized, and better connected than I am outside of anything else the community might want published in a flipbook style magazine:
Something on Aldrith Shutaq, that justifies the portrait his hair justifies. (I will be doing that portrait so I’d much rather leave the article up to someone else who knows him better)
An article on faction warfare that mentions our lord and savior trigger99. You would not have free reign on this, as most people don’t know the warzone that well. If you took on this section I would require you to speak with either myself or Varrinox on Delirium Syndicate comms so you can get the facts. You should have some professional journalism experience (even if it’s just your school newspaper or whatever) It would need to be 4 pages long but we can bump the font.
Anything else is up to everyone else.
If you want to place an ad, keep in mind our corp will charge 750M for placement of the ad. Design of the ad is up to you, but if you want us to design it that will be an additional 4 Billion. True Amarr loyalist alliances, if they wish for an ad are exempt, I will consider running an ad, and designing it on a donations basis (remember we are a FW corp and Lord Varrinox always needs shiny ships, preferably ones that can use the Eros Blossom Skin, thanks.)

Now at least I have a pure Amarr Discord:
I have decided to set the deadline for this project to September 11th, 2018, so maybe we can have it done by Youil (the winter holidays)
Anyone who wishes to discuss the project may come in there and chat. It is a Amarr-only Discord server for a special AFW/Amarr Empire project run by Shadows of the Empire, in alliance with Two Maidens One Chalice and Ungentlemanly Warfare.
