I really hope this idea takes off, it will definitely help boost corp sales.

This would be the first "alien" in EvE, and that's such a fiction-shaking change to the game world that I think it should be avoided on principle.

The Fedo chronicle describes an alien creature. (edit: Oh I see thats already been pointed out)

I see no reason not to have space whales boshing around in space either! I love this idea, but I would like to see incentives to protect the whales aswell. So we can have poachers and crusties getting a bit of whale related pew pew!

this is the dumbest idea I have EVER heard.


I think you did not really read what was proposed in this thread. It is not a question of killing "space whales" or "deer" or some kind of animal. The thread is proposing (if you read through it) a new kind of mini-game/profession to be introduced into EVE.


I read the OP, and then reread it, and then read it again because tbqh I was convinced it was a troll. Then I read ten pages of morons heaping praise on it and fleshing it out. I understand your mini-profession idea, but even mini-professions need some kind of link to the context of the game they're inserted into, and I just don't feel that context is present for this particular gem of an idea.

Honestly my biggest problem with this idea is that we're playing internet spaceships here, and space whales is (I'm sorry) a little far out there even for my outside-the-box mind. I'm all for a tough target with new rewards, and maybe it can be a ship (even an organic ship, piloted by an ancient race, if you like), but please just stop calling them space whales. Maybe you can have whales when planetary flight is implemented, then you've got an ecosystem for your biological organism. But so far from reading the chronicles and playing the game from one end of the galaxy to the other, I just don't see room for some gigantic alien with godlike powers of self-preservation in the vast wasteland of space.

Bottom line: it's probably a pretty decent idea in concept, but it's suffering from a lack of legitimacy because of its ridiculous name. Sorry for my earlier post's tone, I was still just kind of in shock from the ten pages of foaming at the mouth praise for putting something in space that doesn't belong there.

New name: Behemoth.

I like the idea of a sort of biological entity or enemy, but space wales as per se, I think would just seem to silly. Stuff along the lines of (to the many star trek references) 8472 would be cool (or for you B5 people, the shadows). Unique salvage for unique ship equipment the same way sleepers are.

Yeah this is a really cool idea..
Maybe some sort of hybrid bio/mechanical ships or modules could be constructed out of space whale salvage..

I like this idea and it adds a new occupation which can't be a bad thing.
I thinking having it as an illigal activity is also good. Maybe if cought with cargohold of whale blubber then you get - security standing etc.

When I first read the OP I was like, "Lol wtf!" but the more I read the thread, the more I could see this really happening.
