I have been reading the lore of the Yan Jung culture that disappeared some thousands of years ago and that no one knew what happened to them.
“The Yan Jung nation immigrated into our world through the EVE Gate eons ago. From where, we do not know, though the fragments of texts we’ve managed to translate talk about a mysterious middle kingdom.”
The history states that the Yan Jung nation came in through the EVE Gate eons ago. From where, we do not know.
Was the EVE Gate unregulated as too who could use it to enter New Eden or is there a ‘back door’ that the Yan Jung came in through? If the Yan Jung had used the EVE Gate they would have been registered as travelers on both sides of it while traveling back and forth bringing supplies and more people into New Eden while returning to their home world with the news of their discoveries and treasures.
For most historians the history of the Yan Jung is that they simply vanished. Without any history of mixing with other cultures in the log books it could be safe to assume that they discovered a wormhole that existed in parallel with the EVE Gate. Once the EVE Gate collapsed however the early wormholes in New Eden would have possibly have collapsed as well trapping the Yan Jung in their new world separated not only from other New Eden cultures but from other Yan Jung tribes as well.
One could even theorize that the Yan Jung might even be part of the Drifters. Both Drifters and Yan Jung are mysterious and have appeared in New Eden through conjectured means. Both posses technology that was far more improved than any of the four Empires. Some of the devices of the Yan Jung are still unknown today such as the device that has a repulsive force that’s almost impenetrable. It also has regeneration mechanics and a perpetual power source.
The ships of the Drifters themselves have an almost impenetrable force around them along with their ships having a superior ability to regenerate their defensive systems.
Could the Jovians have discovered the Yan Jung trapped in a wormhole thousands of years ago and gave them technology to survive? Could the need of the Drifters collecting corpses be the Yan Jung trying to keep their culture populated with the residual skills left behind in the shell of the Capsuleer’s neurons?
