I would like to share a little family story and submit it as my entry for this year’s contest.

I guess talking about some of the burdens capsuleers have to deal with… Felt good? Like getting something off my chest.

Anyway, there is a tiny bit of Amarr culture involved, but I am not certain it would be enough to fit the category. That wasn’t the main focus anyway.

Have a nice evening.

Namas and Greetings

I would love to add my paper which discusses the Ida as an academic addition to your Other Category.

I’m submitting under poetry something I wrote for a capsuller friend of mine who died, though there have been several now. I don’t really want to have a separate thread just for this simply to link it here - so I hope this entry is considered valid.

Epitaph for a Capsuleer

You helped us out when we were rookies
Unsure what to do or how to play
You said you would come and guide us
Because you were only one jump away

We became corpmates, allies and friends
Finding challenge and success among the stars
You were always there to share our journey
Because we were only ever one jump apart

As we undock we still expect to see you near us
A capsuleer with whom we grew and flew
No matter what we needed or when
You were always somehow ‘passing through’

We honour you as you honoured us
We celebrate the great gift of knowing you
You go now where we will one day follow
Some day we’ll take that last jump too


Please find my submission for the Academic category of the writing contest for your kind attention, concerning a historical conflict involving my member state of residence.


I have been doubting to submit also to the academic category, since I already have two submissions in the other categories… if a third one is acceptable, I would like to submit this essay:
Comparative Study of Amarr Space Cathedrals

As you can see, it also pertains to Amarr culture, without any romance but with some theology.


OP has been updated with all known entries! If i missed your entry somehow, let me know.

As of now, as it is June 1st, entries are closed!

We’ll try to announce the winners in two weeks or so.
