Quafe contact independent, really ?


Given their political clout, and the fact that they've operated as a diplomatic channel between the Federation and Empire in the past, and have a very strong presence all over the cluster, this is where I decided to put them for now.

The corporation is decidedly Gallente, their policies are not.

So at the present time, Thukker is being lumped under the category of Minmatar Republic?


Right now, the Thukker are on the edge of re-uniting with the tribes. Their current stance is they're on the fence, and a lot of the Nefantar and Starkmanir whom were uplifted by the Elder Fleet are currently being supported in their stations, ready to return to the Republic.

Whether the Thukker loyalists like it or not, the Republic and the Thukker Tribe have grown very close, and as such for now we're listing people under one list.

Again, I'll stress that declaring loyalty in this thread DOES NOT affect your RP. It's an out of character thread for the Live Events team to get a rough idea of where people stand.


I feel one could make a similar argument for the Kingdom and the Empire as well as the Mandate and the Empire: Why then are the two listed seperately; I'm curious? ^_^

Probably because the Mandate and Kingdom have hisec. CONCORD protection means more legitimacy!

And because they actually have separate factions in game, so they're mechanically easier to support.

The Thukker are inside the game mechanics a separate faction as well. Concord protection might play a role here, but I think it alone isn't sufficient to explain that they are kept as seperate factions within the contacts while the Thukker are not: Rather they presumably have to use that legitimacy and independence in a way that makes them not as much in alignment with the Empire as the Thukker are with the Republic.

In the extreme things like Ardishapur moving to seperate his domains from the Empire, the Ammatar still having their own secret agendas and King Khanid alike, that deviate enough from the interests of the Empire to justify the workhours invested in those additional contacts.

It seems greater Amarria will be quite interesting -politically- in the future.

I resubscribed after six months to Eve, again looking for a spesific entry point for myself into roleplay in this vast and deep universe.
Besides the necessary patience until new station environments arrive and with them a major aspect for roleplay to me, you did... this... and... well... contacts added.

Thank you sincerely for deepening roleplay in such a nice way and participating not only as developers but also again as players.

On the subject of Faction contacts, which contacts would be available for scientific queries? The SoCT? The other ones seem to be more corporate and military in nature. Or would those be able to relay any information to their respective universities and science divisions?

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.

I'm sure they'd be able to relay information. They're faction contacts after all Blink

For personal reasons, I would like to see a Scope contact. Not for submitting news, but I've always wondered about Lars Kiormen's fate, as well as the other Scope reporters, that were detained during the Seylinn disaster. I recall a news article (although I can't find it now) where the DED claimed that Kiormen was released, but this was never confirmed.

So if a Scope contact will not be made, I would appreciate if someone would tell me what the Scope would reply when I inquire about what happened with the reporters.

At the risk of sounding ignorant and noobish, what would the purpose of this be? I can see the Roleplay potential, but id rather not bother these people if the purpose of this were to be something different?

While our warriors fight for our people's freedom, we in turn should fight for our people's prosperity.
