I'm not very new, however I have started getting into the RP side of things. Is there any information regarding Amarr theology concerning slavery? How do most Normal Masters treat their slaves? Can a Master take a slave as a wife or husband? Does ever Amarr citizen own a slave?

Thank you very much.

Might be better posted in the RP forums, but then again it might de-evolve into a thread of two people shouting "Amarr scum!" "Minnie Slave!" at each other.

But this link should get you started as its mostly everything on the Amarr.

Eve Fiction is the right place for this thread or any questions concerning eve lore.

Slavery is not part of the Amarrian religion itself. It' just the Empire's preferred method of conversion.

Masters can be kind or they can be cruel. Slave owners are required to provide the basic necessities to slaves, including education. But a blind eye is often turned to cruelty unless it goes so far it cannot be ignored any longer.

Slave owners cannot marry slaves. And slave owners cannot use slaves as sexual playthings or even take dirty pics of them. A slave owner that is caught molesting a slave might find himself arrested and enslaved as well. Amarrian society is quite strict on this sort of thing.

Only the very wealthy can own slaves. Have you seen how much they cost on the market?

Reading the lore and what people have to say in this forums "Eve Ficiton" and "Intergalactic Summit" is the best way to get informed.

CCP has done a really great job in creating this universe. It's not a simple Star Wars dark side/light side universe. There are no good guys or bad guys. And just like any real life issue there are multiple sides and points of view.

In fact many see the Amarrians as the closer to good guys and the Minmatar as closer to bad guys. I can't tell you how many times a Minmatar player has threatened to eat my children in this game.

Historically some slaves may have been mistreated by their owners, but then there was an edict from Emperor Doriam that slaves should be treated humanely.

As such, a lot of the mistreatment either stopped or was covered up.

Amongst Amarrian players, there's a difference of opinion as to slaves should be treated. Whilst many obey Doriam's law (or indeed campaign for even better conditions for slaves), there are those who take delight in boasting about how badly their slaves are treated. Unfortunately the latter group often end up appearing as moustache-twirling pantomime villains.

I would imagine that conditions change with distance from the Amarr throne worlds. The Empress emancipated most of the slaves in the empire recently, and I would imagine the remaining ones in the home systems are well-treated, but you can probably imagine the cruelty that occurs in lawless regions like Aridia and Providence.

Also remember, like in the real world, only the very wealthy actually own slaves. For non-owners of slaves, the experience of slavery is probably more like that of a caste system. Ordinary Amarrians are not in the owner caste, but they are not in the slave class either.
