A Happy New EON

Some of you may like to know that the second issue of E-ON is complete and is rolling through the presses. All being well the ink should be dry and magazines will be ready to mail out on 6th January 2006 – a week from now. What this means is that for those who've pre-ordered, you can expect your magazine to be in your hands before the end of the month - probably a good deal earlier.

Here’s what will be nestling among the 76 pages of full-colour EVE goodness:

  • COVER STORY: EMPIRES STRIKE BACK
    A cornerstone of Kali is ‘Factional Warfare’ and it’s a feature that will impact upon every player, no matter what your allegiance

  • FANFEST 2005
    We came, we saw, we conferred… then came back and wrote about it

  • IN CHARACTER
    Profiles of Telemicus Thrace, Pulgor, Zeepo and Hinik

  • TESTFLIGHT: BATTLESHIPS
    Do battleships still have a place in the modern fleet now they’ve been outsized by Titans and Carriers?

  • CHRONICLE: ANIMA OBSCURA by Winterblink
    Why pods are dangerous for you and those around you

  • CHRONICLE: COUNTING STONES by Herko Kerghans
    A poignant tale of family life in the Caldari State

  • CHRONICLE: THE EIGHTH PLAGUE by Istvaan Shogaatsu
    Ever wondered what the inside of a drone hive is like

  • INSIDER’S GUIDES
    The second part of Kaaii’s trading guide, a look at corp recruitment and a rather thorough study of tanking

  • HIT THE DECKS
    A detailed look at the EVE collectable card game (CCG) that’s currently being beta-tested

…whilst on the subject of the EVE card game, we’ve put together a couple of bonus pages that should serve as the perfect introduction to the EVE: Second Genesis. Enjoy.

Don’t forget, if you manage to take out a subscription before the 6th, you will receive a set of six glossy postcards of rare ships – useful for sending out to your relatives thanking them for all the socks you received for Christmas. Or you could just keep them.

Happy New Year.
