Forgive the double post but theres at least three major areas of interest within Pochven I think are worth mentioning in terms of developments or settings to tell a story someone should know about.
Skarkon is… Skarkon. In-lore it’s started to be called “The Snake Pit of New Eden.” It was a mess before the invasion, its a mess after. It will be a mess when we are all dust. For a broad, biased perspective on the history of Skarkon leading up to today I made a little podcast style video on this planet in particular. Just keep in mind though, while all of it is based in real lore and in game events its just one story and perspective of a much larger conflict with many, many more sides to what happened and what will happen next.
Vale is a Veles clade system, and one of the few if not the only system that willingly surrendered to the Triglavians after the system fell. While their is room to play a resistance movement, defectors of the previous administration created the Provisional Vale Government of Unity and the Triglavian Revolutionary Organization as a collaborationist government. We don’t know if it’s a Vichy France, East Germany, or South Korean type organization between Vale’s government and Veles clade itself. Its a client state, but there’s really room so far to portray it any way you see fit at the moment. @Seriatim_Foucault , one of the few named Triglavian characters we have seen speak in news videos, is an ex-federal resident part of that Revolutionary Organization. Given that he used to be part of the Black Eagles (the Gallente equivalent of the CIA basically for those who don’t know) and his history of interfering in the development of the region by sending messages to Kybernauts claiming to speak on behalf of the Triglavians themselves, his exact goals are… Well they’re questionable.
The fact that Intriguerre ( Internal Triglavian Revolutionary Organization) is ran by a former Black Eagle, acts under the authority of the only known collaborationist government that is a direct successor to the previous government, and whos ability to speak for the Triglavians has only been confirmed DENCOM Intelligence, CONCORD Directive Intelligence Agency and Federal Intelligence Office but seemingly not the Triglavians themselves-- its just all very suspicious. I suspect that not only Foucault but Intriguerre and the Provisional Government themselves are either double agents who surrendered under the direction of the Federation to preserve the planet and create a “man on the inside” but we can only guess at this point. In all likelyhood, since this was a highly populated system, there are enough people in these organizations for their to be members that are Trig loyalists, secret Feds, and everything in between. I personally like the ambiguity and think its a great setting if you wanted a spy-thriller backdrop for your stories.
Its also one of the major systems that Stribog has set up operations in as the Kybernaut stewards of Krai Veles, who have taken a much more organized approach to setting up shop in the area. I’d recommend reaching out to @Jamal_Frederick or @Clementine_Lafleur if you want more information of Vale, Krai Veles, Stribog, and anything else in that corner of Pochven.
P.S.: Krai Veles, being detestably the most innovative of the Clades, has also really doubled down on expanding their attempts at integrating rogue drone hives with the Collective and have built superstructures to help them achieve that.
Raravoss is another corner of Pochven seeing a lot of developments and action. @Arline_Kley has done a lot of work fleshing out the Amarr Resistance there. Even before the weaving of Pochven Mordu’s Legion seemed to have a special interest with whatever the Trigs were doing there so I’m convinced there’s more to Raravoss then it seems and we’ll see more on it in the future, however distant that might be.
