That being a cruel slaver is actually a fitting description for Angel Cartel members as well?

That chapter was weak (as far as PF goes). Time for more. Hopefully none of it qualifies as spoilers. If any of them are too spurious, feel free to leave them out. :)

Did you know...

...that the Curse Alliance (CA) is the only alliance mentioned in the EVE Chronicles?

I do also remember a few other nice bits of more conventional "lore", but I'll want to check the sources first. (For example, did you know that Ishukone manufactures the most pods? And Hyasyoda's killer product is the capsuleer docking bay? Both need a source, though...)

Did you know that Saxon Hawke has the inscription "A man travels the universe in search of what he needs and returns home to find it." added near the entry port of every ship he purchases.

Did you know that Saxon Hawke's son Ravi died in drug-related hovercar crash that had connections to the Serpentis "Aenebra" cult? Read more about it here: http://www.eveonline.com/news.asp?a=single&nid=1955&tid=5

Did you know that The Intaki Liberation Front uses local civilian employees in its orbital production facility known as Prosperity Station? Read more about it here: http://www.eveonline.com/news.asp?a=single&nid=3760&tid=7

Did you know...

...that one of the primary exports of the Amarrian Theology Council is booze? (Theology Council in-game info, Market Activity tab).

(Also, one of its primary imports is spiced wine. Those priests know how to enjoy themselves.)

This isn't... entirely true. Although I suppose they weren't mentioned in a Chronicle, but ORE was originally a capsuleer corporation, and now has two of the more popular mining barges that you can build made from them. In fact I know one of the co-founders personally, as he is part of the gaming group I used to play Counter-Strike with. . .

Any chance you could track down something link-able to verify that, Lilith?  I'd LOVE to put something about that in the DYK blurbs, maybe even old RP media/propaganda or something too, wherever it fits.  I'd never heard of that, but it sounds awesome :o

Did you know that the Intaki Liberation Front's "rampant griffin" corp logo was adopted after the pro-Federation corp The Durandal Organization created a logo using motifs similar to the ILF's original logo?

I've not edited the snippet for now, as it says 'alliance' and ORE is a corporation?

...That Zegerth Kelja is the eccentric Sansha Underseer of True Slave Foundations?

Shameless self-plugin, but enough people back in the day seemed to like her a lot as a character. Let me know if things like this aren't allowed.
