This may belong in the RP section, but I feel like this was an interesting little character CCP used to cause some events. It would be great if they brought them back and furthered the story of wormholes.

To my knowledge:

  • The Awakened Infomorph was played by CCP Dropbear in connection with his Arek'Jalaan initiative.
  • CCP Dropbear no longer works for CCP.
  • Current CCP RP team has no interest in picking up someone else's project just for giggles.

However, I also would love to see this loose end tied up, particularly with the Odyssey expansion that's just come out.

Well, I think it was not the idea of CCP Dropbear anyway.

I think this whole story was to be a beginning of something else. For example it could have been a preparation for some next expansion. BUT the Monoclegate happened and CCP had to reconsider their plans, so those ideas for the next expansion were put away, so the story was no longer needed.

Dropbear did not leave CCP altogether, he is now GM Bunyip, on the DUST team. However, importantly, he is no longer on the story team, who are the ones in control of things like the awakened infomorph etc.

The relevant developer now is CCP Eterne, and the rest of the story team (I think headed by Goliath?). I hunted Eterne down at PAX East a few months ago and campaigned pretty hard for some new WH storyline, and while Eterne definitely acknowledge how much we wanted new story content in w-space and how little we had received, he made no specific promises other than "I'll try to get you guys something."

The focus of the story team seems to be primarily on the empires for the time being, but I know that it's worth continuing to be vocal in asking for more WH storyline. There are a number of figures in the RP community who fondly remember Arek'Jaalan (Morwenn Lagann, for example), and they have regular contact with Eterne and the story team. We can also poke our CSM reps to see if they can make some suggestions to CCP about continuing the WH storyline.

If you want more WH storyline, it's the same as wanting anything in w-space. Fight for it.

I remember guys in Blazing Angels talking about that back in the day.

I really wish they still did these sort of events in w-space

And so was born an official wormhole RP subculture.

I don't feel so bad that I have an RP side and that we are working on a backstory to the new corp.

Also, Oh Hai wormhole community. Did I mention there's a new wormhole corp around? Oh wait, there are lots of those every day. But we don't farm. We PVP. Pirate We also RP sometimes. Shocked

I will say, since getting back in the WH community, I am having more fun in EVE than I have had in a long time, and the journey here has been a blast thus far. Unfortunately, every time we've run into a major C5 Alliance through our chain, we've lost, but we actually killed something the last two fights. Lol

Thank you to Verge of Collapse and Sleeper Social Club for the gudfights yesterday. We enjoyed them, even if our rears are still sore today. I don't have fraps yet (would love it if someone did have fraps of those, so we can learn), but a write-up is coming.

So, are there any other groups that have active rp'ers for wormholes?

ALXVP (Alexlyva Paradox) is sort of the "big name" from the RP community side, albeit small compared to what we talk about here most of the time :)
