I love the Eve-chronicles, they provide a thorough insight into the background behind the world of Eve. However, it seems that they haven't been updated in a while and I'd like to see a new one come up.

The thing is, I don't know whether anyone's noticed it, but there's practically nothing in there that describes the Amarr-Jove war at all. We have a full history of the Caldari-Gallente war, we have details of occasions about the Minmatar uprising, but the war between the Amarr and the Jove, the first thing that taught the Amarrians restraint against conquering other races, we don't know anything about, except the Jove won and the Amarr lost.

Is there any chance that someone from CCP could create an Eve-chronicle detailing events in the Amarr-Jove war, especially that of the Battle of Vak'Atioth which according the the Gallente-Caldari War eve-chronicles, surpassed even the great battle of Iyen-Oursta in size. I think it would be great to read about how Jovian technology stood up to the military strength of Amarr...

If there is an IC/EVE chronicles to the Jove/Amarr wars surely it should be put in IC section?

Bring it on, any further 'cannon' history I can get on the Amarr is good to read. I'm tired of some corps trying to make it up and then arguments arising.

Make it a three part chronicle like the Caldari-Gallente war, and remember to include the Minmatar rebellion as well.

Would be a nice addition to the background material available to us.

The year which humbled the Amarr :(

Are all the chronicles/short stories 100% in-house? Just wondering if, say, a player wrote something of a sufficiently high standard, whether it could be accepted into the official 'canon' of Eve background fiction.

I think hellgremlin (istvaan shogatsu, if I've spelt that right) used to write a lot of the eve chronicles, so I guess the answer is yes, you could theoretically write official eve background, but only if you were REALLY good at it.

If you're good and it is in line with the vision the Devs have for the game background, PoTWs written by players can become Prime Fiction.

Story@eve-aurora.com is the adress to submit them, I think. Mind you, 99% of the stories submitted will probably not get printed. It's always worth to try, though.
