Jump Freighters

We're going a lot narrower with our Mechanics Drilldown this time in order to get more of a drilldown. Please let us know if you like or dislike the new focus!

      1. The more focused drilldown is certainly a good thing because it allows for the time to go into more detail.

        Good one on Mentas Blaque and the Black Eagles. I am currently writing a series on the Caldari-Gallente war and in the final part this man and the organisation will feature prominently.

        If you are still lo0oking for subjects, maybe do one on Ishukone corporation because I think they have a really interesting history.

      2. I feel like we didn't go quite as deep as we could on the Black Eagles, but that's what future episodes are for!

        Our first episode's Lore segment was actually on Ishukone, if you want to brave the depths of our old episodes. I'm sure we'll come back to them eventually (they seem to have their fingers in a lot of pies).

      3. I must have missed that one, i listened back on it.

        Hmm, how about the Intaki Syndicate then? For my history piece I ended up looking up some Intaki history as well and they are very interesting people in many respects.

        1. We're working on the Intaki Syndicate right now!
