Mailbag, Corrections, and Updates

  • Tarek Raimo gives us another lore-based insult or exclamation: "Son of a mangy slaver hound!"
    • Tarek also wrote in to remind us of the Doctrine of Sacred Flesh, which prevents capsuleers from becoming Heirs in the Amarr empire
    • Thanks as always to our Patrons: Benji, Chris, Raspberry Jam, Stalence, Alex, Brian, Liam, Bensel, Jack Dancer and Elange, and our new patrons: Neville, Gabrielle, Voltaire, Steven, and Bjorn!
    • We'll be sending out stickers to all patrons who have pledged at least $5, and have provided me with a physical address, at the end of May.

    1. Regarding the heirs and capsuleers, the heirs *can* be capsuleers. What they can't be is clones. All of the heirs from Jamyl's time were capsuleers, but they all had the scanners in their pods turned off when they committed Shathol'Syn (except for Jamyl).


      (removed previous comment to make an edit!)

      1. Of course you're right. Yes to capsules, no to clones!

      2. I stand corrected. I thought the doctrine also prevented them from having any implants. Good thing you mention it too because I was going to write about that period in Amarr history this week.
