Worldbuilding Compendium Project

Over 5,000 connected star systems.

Over 66,000 planets.

And technology to explore and colonize all but the harshest of environments.

New Eden is a vast and amazing place. Full of strange, alien life. Full of exotic landscapes. Full of potential for new settings and new stories.


This ongoing compendium project will seek to serve as a catalog for player made lore on locations, cities, nations, planets, and space installations. Please feel free to reach out to me via PM here, a reply to this thread, or a PM on the Roleplay Is Primary Discord with suggestions and contributions! I hope this project will bring to life all the amazing worldbuilding Eve’s players have to offer.

This thread is similar in practice to Silver’s ‘Big Cluster’ RP Enrichment thread. This particular project will focus on locations, settings, and factions/nations.

[lore primer: X] will refer to posts written in a “guidebook” format, either in-character (IC) or out-of-character (OOC)
[fiction: X] will refer to posts that are written as a story, but include tidbits of info on whatever location they take place in

NOTE: THIS IS A DIRECT PORT FROM A THREAD OF THE SAME NAME IN THE PLAYER MADE/RUN FICTION FORUMS, Backstage (LINK). THIS WAS PORTED OVER FOR ACCESS TO MORE PEOPLE :slight_smile:

Here’s info concerning Gamdis III (most of it is not available on the IGS or any public fora). It was also mentioned in passing in the following gossip articles about an archeological dig and the resulting disaster when the expedition was lost and MIO investigations in the aftermath. There were subsequent events involving LUMEN and Nauplius on the world. Presently the Friar and researcher Theodosius Savnar is investigating the foregoing events.

Here’s information concerning Anath V. Lunarisse also based one of her gardens, the Colonist’s Garden, at the New Eden Fair on her parents’ home at the colony before it was destroyed by Blood Raiders.

Hello, this is still a WIP but happy to share it now. I’ve mimicked @Saxon_Hawke format somewhat as I saw they have done quite a few Federation colonies :blush:

Put it on https://www.worldanvil.com/ or it is not real.

Just a suggestion.

Lol. World Anvil might not be a bad idea for EVE lore in general.

I’m not sure if this counts as “player made lore/canon” per say, but after recently finishing my project on mapping Matar, I believe some folks might be interested in checking it out!

This is a good suggestion, thank you!

I was so disappointed when I realised that CCP buying up White Wolf was not going to result in a table-top RPG.
The struggle to attain Capsualeer status is an obvious setting for a roleplay intrigue.

I’d like to have this added to the list for nullsec, when possible. Had a lot of fun working on this

Added to the list!

Also,

UPDATE

A while back, the beloved Eve Wiki copy hosted by the player-run site Backstage died. Many links included in the OP were thought lost forever until the fantastic and wonderful work of Mitara Newelle and friends. My sincerest thanks to them for restoring the Eve Wiki in a new form. I have gone through and updated all the old broken links so that they now work! :slight_smile:

ALSO, I will no longer be updating the OP Worldbuilding Compendium post on the Backstage forums. This thread here on the official Eve forums will continue to be periodically updated, however.

Happy worldbuilding, friends ~ Kor
