For those of you who haven't heard of the Intaki Liberation Front, we're a small RP corp based in the Intaki system, in Placid.

One aspect of our roleplay is the preservation of Intaki culture and traditions, with our efforts based at our 'Intaki Cultural Centre' on Intaki Prime.

Earlier this year, when CCP announced the EVElopedia was being closed, we were faced with an opportunity for real life to mirror RP, and so we announced that we would preserve Intaki-focussed lore on our website.

Over the last few weeks we've slowly been uploading the old canon wiki articles and chronicles, and with more to come I thought I'd link each of them here for people to find.

Please note that we are not changing the content of any article, except to remove dead wiki links, and to tweak the formatting so that it fits the visual theme of the website.

The text lore content remains unchanged.

Enjoy Smile

Intaki lore is not restricted to the old EVElopedia content, Chronicles or ingame news stories, and little nuggets of detail are scattered throughout New Eden to be discovered in mission texts, and rare item descriptions, etc.

So, to compliment the canon fiction content we're publishing on our website, I thought I'd include some additional links to other forum threads, or online articles that also take a look at Intaki lore.

Please note that unlike the unedited canon content provided above, some of the content included in the following links may be player interpretation of the lore. In some cases that may have involved an element of worldbuilding on the part of the writer in an attempt to fill in the gaps.

As the lore content updates have slowed a little over the summer, I worked my way through the rest of the site and have added a news listing to my post above.

The news articles I've listed are all official CCP or ISD created, and we have tagged the author at the top of each piece.

For more visability, and to keep the content together at the top of the thread, what was this post can now be found up up here in the #3 spot.

Hi,

Thanks for encapsulating all of this Baatav!

Saxon and the ILF members over the years have done amazing work in fleshing out Intaki culture and language. When I designed this character, I relied heavily in these resources. I can't say enough good things about them.

If you're looking to play an Intaki (and you should!), this is the best place to start.

Free Intaki!

The Fed Epic Arch is good in that it includes one of the most interesting quotes in terms of Gallente / Intaki relations. The Gallente NPC who offers the "Intaki Chase" mission reveals her prejudice when she says:

You know what the Intaki are like - one big mess of criminals. I don't believe the lies they tell us in the media: All Intaki are a part of the Syndicate, directly or not. If it were up to me, I'd lock all the Intaki up for good, or maybe just send them all back to their cesspool of a home planet.
I can't help but assume this NPC grew up in the Solitude region.

The Demographics & Culture section of the old EVELopedia article on the Solitude region said:
EVElopedia wrote:
Ethnic and/or mixed Gallente dominate, and while there are plentiful minority groups in the region, they tend to suffer from racial discrimination, and are confined to the lower echelons of the socioeconomic ladder. While the Supreme Court has taken steps to curb racism in Solitude in order to bring the region in line with elsewhere in the Federation, indirect discrimination remains a problem.

The largest minority in Solitude are Intaki, who either migrate from Placid or from the Syndicate. Solitude is the only region in the wider country, however, where individuals of Intaki descent find themselves pushed down to the bottom of the social ladder. Syndicate has always had a significant influence on Solitude, making inroads into the regional underworld, and fueling the local drug trade. Consequentially, ethnic Intaki are viewed with suspicion, and are seen as connected to the Syndicate in some peripheral fashion, though this is almost always erroneous.
