For us, as players and demigod-like capsuleers, the business of the different factions is not our own if we don’t choose so. But it’s still good to know a bit about them before you enlist to fight for their cause. Let me spoil a little bit: None of the Factions in Eve have a truly white west. Even the Sisters of Eve. Or do you think they can build covert ops ships without making a pact with demons? All are just a different shade of grey.
But, for the beginning let’s stick with the four empires of which Jin’taan has made – with some help from Ashterothi – a list of great videos that give a solid first idea of their true natures.
If you are up for reading more of Eve’s lore, check out the Chronicles on the official web pages from CCP.
In the “Recommendation” category I share content from the EVE community that I think you should see (or hear), either because it’s great artwork, a cool story, masterful gameplay, or a combination of all of it.
