Minmatar Lore Project
« on: 16 May 2017, 16:44 »

The purpose of this thread is for any and everyone who wishes to contribute to link every single bit of lore they can find regarding, relating to, or mentioning anything Minmatar.

Format is:

date
<link>
brief description of contents

This is so we can build a timeline of events in the Republic and collect all the information as best we can into a single place.  The next goal of this is to start to build it into a database/repair the wiki pages as best we can and add it to eve's new fiction portal.

Also I would like people to post about what you would like to see in a lore primer What information would help you? What would you like to see?   What should be left to dig in more deeply?

I have a lot ..like a fucking lot of links to put together, but I am finding that I don't have all of them and a lot I do are broken.  With my life the way it is right now I just do not have the time to chase every broken link in a wiki to find the information.  So I am asking for help.

Put the links here in the format, tell me maybe what you want to see in a primer.  Lets do this together and build up the Minmatar lore in the way that all the other factions have been for years.

Also: PLEASE make dates in YC format, remember it is +2 to make the YC date!  And make sure the links work as well )))

In relation to your hooded men item, I just recently got a mission where they are mentioned and the mission has some extra interesting info, feel free to copy it, altough I have no intention of removing it from the hosting site. Sorry for not following the exact format, wasn't sure how to include missions.

https://wiki.eveonline.com/en/wiki/State_of_the_Republic,_110.06.11
A dead link that I cannot repair, if anyone can find it please send it to me in eve mail or mention it here !!  Possibly some or all of the information is contained in the link below but I cannot remember


State of the Republic, 110.06.11

The Republic is celebrating yesterday's events even though many are not entirely sure exactly what it is that they're celebrating. All they know for sure is that they gave the Amarr a bloody nose in a straight fight, liberating millions, and that the Elders—whom many never believed even existed—have returned to help restore their tribal roots, so they're generally happy.

Citizens

Finally, the Minmatar people have a reason to be proud again. Nowhere is this clearer than along the streets and alleys of the Republic. Minmatar warships have invaded Amarr space, beaten up entire fleets, and brought back countless liberated slaves. More than that, the Elders are involved, and while everyone has their own interpretation of who and what the Elders really are, pretty much everyone agrees that their return is a good thing. As a result, the mood is both jubilant and pugnacious, with many clamoring for the Republic to press its advantage and wipe the Amarr Empire off the map once and for all. Of course, this combative mentality conveniently ignores the actual scope of the raids and the losses suffered at the hands of Jamyl Sarum, but who wants to spoil the mood by mentioning that?


The events of recent days have also had an impact on the workings of the Republic, generally being viewed in a positive light. The removal of Midular's unpopular and largely corrupt government, the seemingly imminent rise of a warlike traditionalist regime, and Maleatu Shakor's rise to prominence are all seen as long-overdue changes, and any politicking along the way is largely glossed over. Of course, there are still those who feel that getting what you want isn't always a good thing, but they're mostly keeping their heads down for now.

Military

The mood among the military is more introspective than that among the citizenry. They were completely blindsided by the Elders' taskforces, and most sat helplessly by while their Thukker counterparts led the charge and took all the glory. Some captains threw caution to the wind and joined up with the task forces, and their current status is up in the air, with many being classified deserters or mutineers. Most, however, stuck to their orders and held back, and are now somewhat bitter that their own people resent them for not doing something similar a long time ago. This perceived inaction has always been a source of tension between the citizenry and
the military, and now the former believe that the Elders have proved them right. The fact that the Elders' fleet was built with money that should rightfully have gone to the Republic and the Fleet has not come into it… at least not yet.
Politically, while most sympathize with Shakor's fiery rhetoric, the military has always been broadly supportive of Midular's moderate stance. However, they're also aware that times are changing and that the Fleet will have to change too. Given the shocks of recent days, the military's position during what is likely to be a lengthy period of government transition is unclear.

Leadership

The various clan chiefs and tribal leaders are still trying to figure out exactly what's going on and where they stand, but most of them realize that riding the wave of tribal patriotism from the masses is the wisest course of action. There's still some uncertainty regarding the return of the Elders, but most are banking on the likelihood that the Elders won't seek an active role in Republic politics.
As a result, the four tribes are each jockeying to find a clear and defensible political stance. With the formation of a new parliament, Keitan Yun, Shakor, the other three tribes, and even Karin Midular represent enough wildcards to make any transition destined for a rough road. But the smart money is a bet on a return to more traditional ways.

The Tribes

The main population of the Republic can be divided up into the four tribes that make up the majority of Parliament.

Brutor

Traditionally the most militant of the tribes, the Brutor are convinced that this is their time. They've always wanted to hit back at the Amarr Empire, and now their wish has been granted. Already there's a certain amount of hero-worship for Maleatu Shakor, whose star has well and truly risen, and most Brutor buy wholeheartedly into his rhetoric. Some older and wiser heads wonder quietly about the military realities of the situation, but most are too caught up in the prevailing sentiment to care.

Krusual

Ever the crafty ones, most Krusual view recent events as an opportunity as well as a cause for celebration. With the help of the Elders the Republic is now in a position to wield some real power, and the Krusual want to be a part of that. Many of them see through the tribal leaders’ rhetoric and understand the situation for what it is, and while they realize that the Republic is by no means invulnerable they also appreciate that now is the time for action. They want to see the Republic integrate the other three tribes where practical, and to use that added strength to expand their influence and territory while they have the chance.

Sebiestor

The pragmatists of the Republic, the Sebiestor have greeted recent events with joy: the Minmatar people might finally be turning a corner. They're worried about the implications of open war for the Republic and the unity of the Minmatar, but the revelations concerning the other three tribes give them some hope that things might turn out well. Eager to distance themselves from Midular’s “appeasement” foreign policy, they're largely in favor of aggression, but worried about the long-term consequences. They're hoping that the other three tribes can be integrated into the Republic, although they're not universally hopeful, and they're hoping that a well-handled war against the Empire will allow them to shore up the Republic and stabilize its position.

Vherokior

The Vherokior privately feel very good about recent events, but generally shy away from displaying this appreciation publicly. They're cautiously optimistic, but at the same time prepared for setbacks. While underrepresented politically, they're a silent majority in the bureaucracy and public service sectors; while they don't have much control over legislation, they usually oversee the actual implementation of policy. As such, they're also worried about the civic disruption that would inevitably follow any attempts to integrate the three missing
tribes into the Republic. Nonetheless, a war might allow for the liberation of more slaves, an undertaking they genuinely believe to be the most important priority.

also:

Thukker Tribe
Having had their shining moment of glory, the Thukker tribe are feeling pretty good about themselves. After decades of toil, they finally have a brief moment where they can sit back and smile. There's a degree of uncertainty as to what will happen next - they don't know whether they'll rejoin the other tribes, for example, and they don't know which way the Republic is going to go - but the Thukker thrive on uncertainty, so a healthy bit of political confusion just puts a bigger smile on their faces. It's not all smiles and laughter, though. They are continually reminded of the disastrous landings on Mekhios; when Jamyl Sarum's superweapon obliterated the Elder fleet in orbit, the predominantly Thukker ground forces were stranded on the surface. While many unpleasant rumors circulate among the caravans, the total absence of any information about their fate is far more disturbing than any lurid story.


Found via internet wayback machine, that gave some useful phrases, googling those phrases came to : http://go-dl1.eve-files.com/media/corp/santaclaw/races_bloodlines_and_scientific_articels.pdf

which is a player's collection of news articles and stuff. iirc, they've compiled other bits and pieces, so might be worthwhile looking further into stuff.

Yes, though reporting rather than posting is preferred (as it helps the thread stay on topic).

I am actually very interested in gathering also the player-made lore.  Saede's Ava's, anyones..  But not here.  That should be it's own thread and honestly I don't really have time for that project now.  I am only posting here because I really don't have time for this project =/

Also, if you can try to avoid duplicate links but if you do, its nbd.  We will sort through that in the time of sorting through that.  Please just dump whatever you can find.

player-made lore should be a different, separate, section, so as not to confuse people, when making a guide. it's not helpful to have people become confused and assert that some player-created stuff is canon, and get into arguments with other people about it.

also, doing L1 and L2 missions can find a lot of interesting little pieces of lore that are not visible elsewhere.

These come from Theodicy  http://fiction.eveonline.com/stories/short-stories/theodicy and as such have no YC date.

"And so we watched, those of us who had survived, from afar as our home world burned and the legions of evil marched before their sign, herding our people like so much cattle into transports. A life of slavery awaited those cursed souls; it would have been better for them had they never been born. How, dear God, did it come to this? Were these invaders not of flesh and bone like us? What evil is this that compels men to commit such horrors against each other?"

- Sebiestor Tribe Chronicles, Minmatar Archives, "The Path of Krogan"

============================================================================

"It is said that cowardice lurks behind power; that every tyrant fears the day when his subjects learn where the source of real power lies. What better way for an emperor to hide that truth than by claiming the will of deities and threatening divine consequence to those who question it!"

"The Elder's Tome", Matari Chronicles

=============================================================================

"I will tell you how this madness is born: A man peers over the egde of chaos, into the event horizon, where light can never escape. Then he turns and sees the remnants of his shattered life, of what was taken from him without pause or remorse. The soul decides, because the man is already dead, and it craves chaos for this purpose: To kill the god who did this to him."

The Thukker Testament, excerpt from Vol III

=============================================================================

"I doubt that history will record how fiercely we fought for our freedom. There will be no chronicles detailing the courage of Minmatar warriors or the unity of our tribes during the Rebellion. But historians will go to great lengths to make sure that other Empires take credit for ensuring our survival, and that before we were anything else, we were slaves first. On that point, future generations will be certain."

-The Nefantar Paradigm, Uniija Krur

=============================================================================

"In my dream I was visited by a warrior spirit, who said nothing but pointed towards the gate, where I saw daylight when I knew there should have been darkness instead. The next morning, the slaver that guarded the barracks we lived in lay dead at the entrance, and the Glaive-collars around our necks had been mysteriously removed. Then we noticed the weapons arranged on the dirt upon we slept, begging to spill the blood of the one who made us call him `master´."

-Anonymous, "Glaive Wars", Kurusal Archives

=============================================================================

"Civilization looks away while we deploy ships to guard borders beyond which Minmatar slaves still toil for Amarrian masters. How else are we to interpret this complacency as anything but indifference? How long are we to exercise restraint, in accordance to your definition of decency, while this evil is allowed to exist?"

- Karvour Thorel, Brutor Representative to the Minmatar Republic Council, CONCORD Assembly, 23343 AD

=============================================================================

"It took the indifferent cruelty of a Glaive-collar to make us forget which tribe we came from, and the horrors of war to unite us as Minmatars."

- Isinnur Urlbrald, Vherokior Council Historical Archives, 23217 AD
