So I'm going to try...
The official background of Curse is as follows:
"Curse is the old home of the Jove Empire. The Jovians departed their home centuries ago after the fall of their Second Empire and set themselves up in their current whereabouts to form the Third (and current) Empire. The cause of the departure was the dreaded Jove Disease, which only Jovians could catch. Having found no cure for the disease the Jovians decided to leave their home worlds in a desperate bid to rid themselves of the disease once and for all. The attempt failed. Today, the former Jovian systems are occupied by the Angel Cartel, the strongest pirate clan in the world of EVE. Rumor has it that the source of their power is old Jovian technology scavenged from the relics of old Jovian stations and settlements."There's also an old Jovian poem associated with this region:
"Once we were mighty,What is the punishment they speak of? Was it the Jove Disease? I wish I could learn more about the Jovians.
Stars bent to our will,
Our reach was infinite,
Our power incontestable,
With outstretched hands we tried,
To touch the face of perfection,
But we came too close,
To that which is not due mortals,
And our punishment is our curse,
Our endless sorrow."
- Translation of an old Jovian poem
Of course, we can't forget about the Angel Cartel, the sovereign owners of this region. They're one of the oldest and most powerful of the criminal organisations in the galaxy. Around 100 years ago they established themselves in Utopia and expanded from there, getting their power from Jovian technology discovered in their ancient homes - now owned by the Angel Cartel. Some of the most impressive ships available were created by the Angel Cartel: the Dramiel frigate, the Cynabal cruiser, and the Machariel battleship.
I'd like to know more about the history of Curse, and of other regions.
- What's the history of this region as far as the players are concerned?
- What major corps or alliances have come and gone over the years?
- What major events have transpired that's worthy of being recorded?
Do you have interesting information that you can provide me? I'd like it to be about major events in the history of a region, including:
- major battles
- major alliances and their history
- major political changes
- anything else relevant!
Send your knowledge to me. Either include a timeline if you know it, or just dates that you recall. Go as far back into Eve Online's beginnings as you would like. Help me to create a historical timeline of major player/corp/alliance events throughout the history of Eve Online.
Even if you have just one event to tell me about, please do. Include the date, and some information about what happened. I think this would be of value to the Eve player community, but I can't do it without your help.
Leave your submission as a comment here, or send me an evemail me in-game with your submission to this project. Thank you!
PS. if you know of a website that already does this, please provide a link so I can check it out. My research so far suggests it doesn't exist, so if it does I'd love to know about it.
I've added a thread to the Eve Online forums asking for people to help out with this project and provide some information on what they believe are major events in their past that are worth being recorded. You can follow it here:
