I have a few questions about the in-game news. First of all, are the characters in the stories real players? I looked some of them up (ie. Hamish) and they look like players. They're in corporations and all. Second, if they are players, how do they get chosen to be put into the stories? And last, who writes the stories?

Only thing I can help you with there is that the people mentioned are real players..

Take Admiral Golan Trevize for example. First time he called me in for a 'private' chat in his office, I had been warned to look for large plastic sheets on the floor.

Some corps are NPC corps, and some players work for the news orgs, (Scope for example).

Lots of people write, stories. Most probably don't see the light of day, but some, with agreement from enemies, can be pushed into something more than what one person can imagine.

Are you saying there's some way to submit stories? And how does one join a news organization anyway?

Whoops, I found the part where you can submit them. Is there a way to put pictures in your story? Thanks in advance.

Hiya!

I'm Orestes, the Editor in chief of the ISD Interstellar Correspondents. I'm glad you're enjoying the stories on the news page. All the people mentioned in a news report exist ingame, and everything that's reported on actually happened, or will happen.

The main news is reserved for CCP events and might not have a direct impact on the game.

The news submission system you found is mainly for you to submit news leads. Submitted articles usually don't get published, because we're not allowed to post direct player news. The IC have to be involvd, in fact checking, etc.

You can apply by following the link in my signature, if you want.
