Thanks everyone! I appreciate the comments!
I see that I have a lot of reading to do in the EVE fanfic world. I will have to make time in the near future to really do a deep dive.
Luckily, my core characters are rooted in a common origin story that hinges on them not really knowing much about the EVE world around them. So in the mean time I can draft up short stories about them that don’t require lots of references to important people for now…
But still, it will have to work towards integrating well known people and locations etc, over the long term.
I wonder if y’all could help by sharing your top three interesting or note worthy Pople and Locations of EVE lore?
As a new player, I’ve seen a lot of places and people referenced, but in practical terms the in game places I know personally are limited to my station of origin and the immediate zones around that, Jita (yes I’ve set up my “ship outfitting HQ” in a public station there despite all warnings and the fact that none of my characters have completed the basic missions yet), and the region where the Corporation I joined has one of its main stations.
Other than those places,and the zones along those routes, I don’t really know any of the “notable” places in EVE yet.
