...That Kameiras are selected from all Matari, not just the Brutor?

...That Kameiras are raised by Amarrian women in specialized creches until the age of six?

...That Kameiras, despite often being more loyal than even Paladins are kept separated from other groups of Kameiras?  Often as squads attached to companies of normal Amarrian troops.

...That the no one, including the Kameiras, knows the origin of their burial rituals?

...That the teaching of Kameiras that they are 'chosen' like the True Amarrians is a controversial, but effective method of control?

Well, with Source the marriage wouldn't even by deemed legal in the State. So it would be an informal one, or Federation recognized one. None of the mega benefits or organizational aspects would be given to the spouse.

Edit: I am rather happy they finally made it clear on this issue. Ends one of annoying perpetual debates on how same-sex marriage/LGBT are handled in the State.

Demographics on the Caldari State made the LGBT issue very clear already. Source just backs it up.

It is more explicit. People still tried to argue after Demographics that they had same-sex marriages in the State, just simply not talked about in public or not organized by the corporations. This shuts the door on any kind of wiggle room. It is stated as illegal instead of something that is "not done" or just "avoided".

I'll have to read up on it more.

...that 'Sarum' is the mediaeval latin name of Salisbury, one of the oldest settlements in England? It was also sporting a royal palace, built for King Henry I and subsequently used by Plantagenet monarchs and the Bishopric that developed the Sarum Rite variant of Roman Catholic Liturgy.

... that the Gallente Navy concluded in YC 111 that Sansha's Nation only has one wormhole-generation device? (IGS)

(I seem to be repeating that a lot lately on the IGS. Figured it wouldn't do any harm getting that added to the rotation here.)

 Not sure if this has already been posted, or if player-created lore counts, but here is a 'Did you know'  :D

...that 'Wings of Valour' is a wildly popular Gallente Video-Game Series created by Gargatuan Games?

...that 'Wings of Valour: Coalition' is a cluster-wide MMO created by Gargatuan Games?
