Something I’ve wanted to do for a while is create some videos that help get people into the lore, like the original Day of Darkness series did for me when I found them. However, what I quickly realised is that it’s kind of difficult to get across just how alien and interesting the divergent cultures of New Eden are to people who can simply look at the archetypes they have (Gallente = Liberal, Amarr = Religious Fundamentalist, Minmatar = Tribal Freedom Fighters, Caldari = Corpratocracy) and make quick judgements rather than digging a few layers deeper and taking a look at the dark greys and darker greys that tend to make up the morality of the lore compared to real life.
As such, I wanted to reach out and ask the many goers of the fiction forums; What does your (or your enemies) empire do that is categorically f*cked up? What makes it an awful place to live? What every day activities would disgust anyone living on Earth currently? Anything from the smallest detail to the most overarching point, I’d love to hear it!
Hopefully, with everything I get from this, I’ll be able to make a video that rather effectively shows just why all the empires in New Eden are terrible places to live, and get people interested in the shear meatiness of EVE that way. Think of it as the 40k methodology
