News from the New Eden cluster with a special focus on the activities of the capsuleers who roam interstellar space.
Far beyond Caldari space lies a region named Venal. It is a rich but dangerous area of space, and home to the infamous Guristas pirate cabal. Enterprising corporations have been going there for ages, to harvest its plentiful asteroid belts and to collect CONCORD issued bounties. But what makes Venal different from other regions in this galaxy? Why have several allianced risen and fallen there, and why is there almost constant warfare - if not between alliances, then war within an alliance? A few days [...]
Syndicate : Pirate-infested but full of potential. In the eyes of many corporations on the border of empire space, the whole region is little more than a route to richer pastures in the Cloud Ring region and beyond. Endless small skirmishes escalate into huge wars, often involving some of the most feared combat pilots of our galaxy. These two regions are largely recognized as unclaimed, perhaps due to the fact that no organization is believed to be able to hold on to them. Yet there are alliances of [...]

NEW CALDARI – In the midst of uncertain times throughout the galaxy, when the headlines are replete with stories of war, trials, and hardship, there occasionally shines a beacon of hope reminding us of our humanity and the virtues that have carried us through the millennia. On October 20th, 106 EST, starship captains Animator and Asentia—both of Moya Warfare, Incorporated—pledged eternal union to one another in a wedding ceremony presided over by members of the charitable Polaris Corporation. There [...]
THE AMARR CHAMPIONSHIPS , which have been relatively peaceful so far, took a nasty turn today when interstellar reporter Beringe was threatened that he would be "hunted down and podded" should he attempt to cover the upcoming event. The fundamentalist made no attempt to hide his name but it will not be printed here for security reasons. "Obviously, we take this very seriously." was the official CONCORD reply. "Our reporters are valuable to us, but due to the nature of their work, we cannot protect [...]
LUSTREVIK – A solid business relationship between an anonymous freelance pilot and a high-ranking agent of Republic University has resulted in a trend that could send the price of the coveted Miner II laser “falling very, very soon”. Interstellar reporters have confirmed that the pilot—who is part of a corporation with only seven members—has obtained an authentic Miner II blueprint so far the first one in the game. Until now, the Techell Corporation had an been one of the few confirmed suppliers of [...]
VENAL- Yesterday, in a stunning turn of events, Taggart Transdimensional announced the resignation of it's founding CEO, Ragnar. In the same breath, the new CEO of TTI, Gunny P, proclaimed a cease-fire with the New Venal Alliance. Gunny P furthermore vowed "TTI has never condoned piracy, we have in the past been members of alliances which have included pirate corporations. This is no longer the case, nor will it ever be in future." The two factions of Venal, the NVA and the Northern Alliance ( of [...]
The Sebaeu Foundation, a voluntarily funded organisation set up to promote the free exchange of unbiased news throughout Amarr space, has finally announced that Gunhilda Zetter, Chief Correspondent for the Kor-Azor Regional Bureau, is now working for CONCORD with the newly set-up Interstellar News Administration. It appears she left the Foundation well over a week ago, the official announcement apparently delayed in respect of the death of Emperor Heideran VII. Zetter rose to prominence after her [...]
ENNUR – Two freedom fighters from the People’s Front of Minmatar, Viqer Fell and Tyto, openly denounced all prospective candidates actively vying for power in Amarr during an interview with the Interstellar Reporters, stating that they would only recognize a candidate who “supported the complete and total abolition of slavery” within the Empire. The two also openly admitted to taking part in a recent series of ferocious ambushes against Amarr targets within the Derelik Region (reported by [...]
Open warfare has been declared between the old established Stain-alliance and the newly formed Curse-alliance (which includes corporations that have fought the SA in one form or another before). All pilots are warned that members of both alliances have threatened to shoot at any and all ships within their range for the duration of the war. Allegedly, some large battles have taken place with casualties on both sides. Reports are vague as the area is obviously a challenge for correspondents to enter.
Delegates from the Inter-Galactic Agent-Rights group met recently with CONCORD officials to present their candidate for Interstellar Reporter. Agents throughout known space have long sought to more broadly express their concerns and the opportunities they provide to the adventurous pilots of EVE. Now, it seems, they will get that wish, for it is with pride that I, Coronach, their candidate, accept CONCORD appointment to the position of Interstellar Reporter. I look forward to serving CONCORD, the [...]
Greetings, everyone. My name is Iece Quaan. I'd like to introduce myself as one of the new Interstellar Correspondents for the Domain region. CONCORD, through a rigorous submission process, has selected seven correspondents from around the galaxy to bring local news to the populace of EVE. I am very happy to have been chosen to be a part of this program. I will be reporting on anything and everything. Events, rumors, corporate policies, anything that catches my attention. I do not intend to cater to [...]
A vigil for Heideran VII, the Amarr Emperor, will be held tonight at 19:00 at the Emperor station in the Amarr system. The vigil is being organized by Lady Vetinari of the PIE Inc. and she urges all Amarr pilots and others that wish for the swift recovery of the emperor to attend. The whereabouts and condition of the emperor are still a mystery and many fear that he may be mortally sick. It is the hope of those organizing the vigil that the emperor can quickly return to office before the empire [...]
In an effort to enlist the help of law-abiding citizens concerned over the banditry now rampant in deep space, CONCORD has released a list over the 10 most wanted pirates. The list includes their current known whereabouts, making it easy to track them down. The list will be updated frequently and hunters that manage to kill one of the fearsome pirates will get a honorary mention. Here is the list as it stands today: Pirate name: Lord Zap Bounty: 7.562.810 Corporation name: m0o Corp Location: Passari [...]
