New Chronicle: And I Shall Hide

First post

Very little has been heard from the upper echelons of the Amarr Empire in recent months. However, CCP Eterne has been quite busy...

Check out his debut chronicle, "And I shall hide" and delve into the mind of Empress Jamyl I as she fights an ongoing struggle with the entity that shares it.

You can read the whole thing over on the EVElopedia, here.

Enjoy!

Just a note that the story takes place back in mid-February, right before the Minmatar purges began.

Interesting...

I like the double layer nature of this chronicle. It's interesting reading it and then reading it again.

Im not sure I understand what generation of immortal soldiers the Dust players are actually playing. Are any playing the first generation ones, the ones made with Sleeper tech? If so, are they expected to role play being insane or something? If not, are those first gen soldiers now NPCs, and the players fight them as a way of making ISK? Or just not in the game in any way?

The current group is actually (if I recall correctly) the second generation. The first one was the one with directly implanted sleeper tech, the second group (the current players) are all fine using homegrown tech, and as such don't have that batch of anger issues (though what issues they develop from being in combat so much as dying as much as they do are yet to be seen - grab the popcorn bowl if you haven't already)

EDIT: Turns out there's only 2 generations of clones according to CCP Eterne

Beautiful work. It really is a nightmare to tell the one from The Other.

I suspect this is a allusion to the hard reset kick in the teeth beta guys n gals are going to have to swallow when DUST goes live.
Suspenseful. I don't know what I enjoy more the cunning word-craft or guessing the direction of game development - oh wait, isn't that the same thing? ... gotta love duality.

i have literally no idea what you just tried to say.

This is cool though, Glad we're getting round to the Amarrian stuff now, keeping a close eye on events and this part of the forum from now on.

DUST players are second generation cloned soldiers who have been implanted with the tech Jamyl's scientists developed and offered to the other empires in the 514 chron. The original, insane ones implanted with Sleeper tech are not supposed to be the players (though if someone wants to RP that, I doubt we'll say it's wrong). There's no way to currently fight them.

Basically, some DUSTies are going to have to get nuked because they're going crazy.

Joke's on Snowflake though - they already nuked the first generation of "player" clones (see my post above). Keep in mind that this chronicle is set in mid-February, not current (EVE) day.

Don't worry about me, I think in squiggly lines that sometimes come out backwords.

Interesting.
I was wondering when we might get another look inside the Empress' mind.

Very nice read.

Depending on how this whole political mess plays out, perhaps never. It's highly probable that th upper echelons of the four empires will see some change, and maybe we will see a new emperor/empress soon™.

I would however know how the pirates are reacting to this whole set of affairs. I still believe that old Uncle Kuvakei has at least some kind of influence.

Loved it. Even better after I figured out how to hear the voice. It was good but a bit confusing without it.

I like the internal struggle within Jamyl, and happier to see her more functional now. Long shall she reign.

As far as RP goes, I'm loyalties are as follows. God, Empire, Empress. So I wouldn't mind seeing King Khanid on the throne. That would be a great day for the empire.

Great Chronicle. Keep up the awesome work :-)

I get the sneaking suspicion that, unlike the other empires, political leaders in the Empire don't tend to change at the drop of a hat.
So unless she's assassinated, kidnapped, or runs away, she's unlikely to vanish any time soon.

Well, we plowed through two Emperors (Heideran and Doriam) and a multi-year long interregnum under Dorchuta Kasoth in the last 10 years.

King Khanid? That would be a pretty major change considering he's not one of the heirs.

A good read. Thank you CCP Eterne

I hope not. The fact that Amarr history has plenty of centuries old Emperors and then suddenly there's a period of 3 seperate Emperors and a lengthy inter-reign period simply because now there's players watching the history, was annoying as hell. Jamyl is a good character to have in place.Besides the significant weaknesses that make her character interesting there is also always that mystery of the "Other" to flesh out. She's about the only good thing to come from Gonzales' writing.
