We have gotten permission by CCP to re-produce the 84 (currently) eve chronicles into audio format and hopefully people that have not read them may choose this audio format instead and so not miss out on these awesome works by CCP.

The eve-chronicles, for those of you that don't know what im talking about, are basically text stories featuring aspects of the world of eve. This may be history, current happenings, corporations or general stories.

We are working feverishly on them atm, and have placed 8 of them on our downloads section at Some of these chronicles have such a rich story that we can really go to town with trying to create a piece of audio with effects that will hopefully add even more life to the current gripping stories.

If you have never read these chronicles then go to the world of eve section, or alternatively start downloading from

we will try to add 5 new creations each week (sometimes more) until we have caught up to the 84 existing ones.

we hope you enjoy them.

I would rather someone else do this besides Eve Radio. Hardly professional. At least when I used to listen to Eve Radio way back when I was not pleased with their maturity, professsionlism or morals.

Why don't you go out and make something better or simply shut up?

This is a great service you are doing us here. I'm an avid reader of all things of this nature, and it will be nice to have them as an audio format as well. Thank you. Smile

I think, Sally, we may safely disregard such comments by Sinist.

Ok, first off, I love EVE-Radio; I think they're a great "station" to listen too, and they have cool DJs.

That being said, I think eve-radio should stick to just acting as a radio station, nothing more, nothing less.

I downloaded one of the new audo eve-chronicles made by eve-radio and I had to turn it off half-way because of how bad it sounded. It sounds like a bad monty-python skit, and isn't up to par with the level of quality I've come to expect from the chronicles, written or audio. I'm sorry, but that voice, accent, sound effects, all of it; it's just so very wrong for the eve-chronicles, and I for one won't be downloading them.

I tip my hat to the eve-radio crew for trying, but I'm sorry, just no; please don't butcher anymore of them. That was just god-aweful.

Edit: I'm not saying I could do better, but I merely think a professioanl should be hired to do this, and the job should be done right.

wow , some of you guys are hard to please Shocked

The comments all over seem to be positive apart from 2 so i think as an effort to please the 2 flamers , eve-radio's next project will be colouring books with inspiration from eve with extra thick outlines so you will definately stay within them.

have fun Very Happy

p.s. No to latex chronicles Confused

I've been pre-screening all the audio Chronicles and I have to say that I have been very happy with all of them. E-R has put a lot of work into the Chronicles, not to mention the internet feed. The EVE universe wouldn't be the same place without their presence.

Kudos to you and your staff, Doby. Keep up the excellent work!

Sinist never says anything constructive or intelligent anyway, so in a sense he's describing himself more than eve-radio...

Hey Dobes, are you going to be narrating all the Eve-chronicles, or are you going to get other DJs and/or special guest-stars to narrate them? Would be cool to have different voices say them...

Thanks BIG K Laughing

I have done a few, but as i have no life i finished mine first, but alot of the dj's are doing some and so it will be a vast array of narrative voices tbh. Rinny has done some as you have probably heard already.

Some of the chronicles have taken over 6 hours to make whereas some of them take just 2 hrs so there really is a serious amount of effort going in to them and we try to use effects as little as possible and only when we feel it adds to the suspense.

I like them alot and am pleased with the results. we have done 13 of them so far which is just over an hours worth of audio so all 84 will be a huge undertaking.

I wont suggest for one minute that everyone will enjoy them, i think the quality is good and it is an attempt to hopefully attract those people that may not be interested in reading them but will quite happily download and listen, and if they do that then its mission accomplished.

its comparable to - some of you will read the book but wouldnt consider watching the film version, whereas i will always opt for the film version Shocked

so all 84+ will be created and they will be posted for download each week for you guys to grab as i believe they are easy and fun to listen to and in no way compromise the original text, and we couldnt seriously just sit and read the story and offer you that as it would sound lame, so we have added to the experience.

Great project, Doby. Have already heard several of them and I think they are wondefull. Dont listen to Sinist the stupid n00b who doesnt have anything positive to say about anything.

Keep up the good work.

I like them. Keep it going, guys. Cool

I especially like the one about that poor little bastard in Curse flying for the Cartel. Very Happy

about time you did something other than playing that 'orrible noisy pop music :p

i'll give these a listen, since i no longer recognise 99% of the music you play

ps: any chance of playing some Wagner or Dvorak?

no, didn't think so

Depends on the DJ. There have been a few that have played some classical. I remember hearing some Wagner earlier in the week, IIRC.

Well, I have to agree that there is too much pop these days, I almost never listen to eve-radio anymore. Sad
