In the final Crucible-related chronicle, CCP Dropbear presents to us a man who is fascinated by information, and busy with parsing new data on strange and mysterious sites, when suddenly he receives an unexpected offer.

You can read the chronicle here.

You can read the chronicle about the Vitrauze Agreement here.

Loved it; it sounds like those of us involved with the Arek'Jaalan project are about to have some new developments (pun intended) tossed our way.

Also, was that a slight jab at a few of your more always-online participants (*cough*likeme*cough*) that I detected? Blink

This is clearly the best of the Crucible related chronicles, but I still think that the old-style chronicles were far better. They added an additional element of immersion, while the new chronicles are little more than embellished patch notes. And that's about as interesting as the description of a toy pitched at some 8-year-old. I get that the new chronicles should relate to current events in the game, but the old chronicles did a better job at that.

Of the three Crucible ones that I now recall reading, this one and the Customs Office ones grabbed my interest. The first, simply from the immersion standpoint of "What the other side thinks", and how the often minimal-to-no-rules attitude we capsuleers have can be viewed from the outside.

This one, and now the Arek'Jaalan project in general, have grabbed my interest as a wormhole resident, simply from seeing all of the stuff mentioned every day.

I more agree with your take when applied to the second one. It did feel more like an advertisement brochure than anything else.

I'm loving this project to bits. It's giving players a chance to be part of and shape the backstory, without the mistakes made in the past. Having a blast playing my part in it. Plus, we all get to do science. Yay for science! Lovely to see a chron on this. Dropbear knows how to keep up on the edges of our seats in anticipation of what is next.

See, I love the idea of chronicles and very much enjoyed most of the older ones. This is why I'm complaining. And yes, I would very much like to learn more about wormholes, sleepers or even the mechanics of Invention. For instance, I would love to know why I have to invent a Tech II blueprint more then once. In a nutshell I would love to know what I don't know already after reading the patch notes. That's all.

Glad to see some Dropbear and AJ dirt at last.

It may not make sense at first.

For those of you who haven't been beating your head on this for 2 years, this is the first ANSWER I'm aware of Dropbear ever handing out on a platter. It answers specifically the use of the sequestered components from the Vitrauze Agreement - at least least in part. It opens the first truly new line of inquiry in months, and the first truly concrete one in more than a year.

It may just feel like a patch note, but this is worthy of some real investigation for the first time in a long while.

I expect Dropbear buried some further puzzles in the new data as well.

"material identified during the Vitrauze Agreement as practically worthless"
So "junk" wormhole stuff is about to become valuable for manufacturing new Tech II modules?

"new Tech II modules and capsule upgrades"
Capsule upgrades? Interesting... I see something like this in the future:
Capsule Upgrades (4x)
10% increase in Capsule shield, armor, and structure hit points per level
10% decrease in Capsule align time per level
5% increase in Capsule maximum velocity per level
5% decrease in Capsule signature radius per level

Or maybe just a Tech II capsule with some of the above?

Enjoyed it.


But... careful with this OOC knowledge that we cannot translate into IC (the mysterious senator did say: "This information was so well protected that for all we know there are less than ten people in the entire cluster who are aware of it.") Unless, of course, Dr. Tukoss plans to reveal it to the world.

I wondered what the empires were doing with the sleeper "blue loot". Now we know: Figuring out the new T2 stuff we got with crucible. Looks like we may be getting something about Pods too.

This chronicle seems to be set at a time just before Dr Tukoss announced the Site One project to us, a couple of months ago.

BTW if you go to Site One you can pick up the abstracts I wrote. Yay! In game items with my name on them!
