Brilliant: Cluster-wide sleeper tech contamination, recognition of capsuleer-led genocide and a mysterious force powerful enough to force the four Faction leaders to turn tail. And 514 is New Eden's answer to 666 for that psychological horror angle.

Also, I really enjoyed the dialogue. Maleatu Shakor has some superb sniping lines and the interplay between the four leaders is something I would love to see acted out on screen. So how's the screenplay coming along for the movie/TV show/animated web series?

In any case, thank you Gnauton. A great read.

Very well done... More answers and more questions, thank you.. Smile

It's no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then, and it's a poor sort of memory that only works backward.

Excellent read that answers a few questions I had, in particular concerning the implications of farming implants from Sleepers in the long-term, and the psychological effects on those being "possessed" by a number of consciousness who would no doubt grow to dislike being ripped from heaven in greater numbers. Good to know something "clean' has been developed before the release of the technology en masse.

Many thanks, Gnauton. Loyal to the four leaders and providing a few answers in a very entertaining chronicle.

Quick predictions after reading:

Could 514 relate to a date in our universe maybe? May 2014? Seems a bit far away.

But Anytime it's been Mentioned with talking they have always made the Point of saying Five One Four, not five fourteen or five hundred and fourteen, always five one four.

This leads me to beleive that each number means something on it's own.

Of Course I could tell you what I think it is, but the NDA would have to Kill you.......

Wonderful, loved it. Some answers and more questions and something dark lurking on the horizon. Can't wait for more.

In this dark void we are like brilliant stars, holding within us both the creative and destructive power to bring a new dawn upon worlds or plunge them into eternal darkness.

.....ooooooh. I cannot say how much I enjoyed this chronicle, especially the subtly different personalities and styles of the 4 leaders.

From the Eve Wiki "The Scriptures"

"Which test reveals more of the soul, the test that a man will take to prove his faith, or the test that finds the man who believed his faith already proven? If you know this answer, then you also know which of these challenges bear the greatest penalty for failure. The gates of paradise will open for you one time only; woe to the soul who dares to knock twice." - The Scriptures, Book of Missions 5:14"

The last line seems pretty well connected to Dust 514.

Why do people guarding the leaders of the four empires have weapons that are susceptible to EMP if it's such a common tactic. We saw the same tactic in Empyrean Age and Templar One: EMP burst, then engage with ground forces.

Nobody expected this?

Are we going to be able to EMP burst a battlefield in DUST 514?

Corporals outranking Sergeants. That had me confuzzled for a few minutes before I figured it out.

10/10. Would read again.
