I have something interesting you might want to read. You'll have to come over to my place in order to read it though!
I received the 24th issue of EON magazine earlier in the week.
It's a great cover isn't it!
I'm loving the new design, which was first seen in the previous issue (#23), not that I didn't like the previous layout. It's just good to have a shake up every now and then, keep things fresh.
The main article is about the ships crew. Discussing the idea of having a crew in your capsuleer piloted ships. Ideas for implementing it and reasons why it hasn't yet been added to the game. It's also got the crew guidelines originally shown by CCP at FanFest.
Instead of having there portrait listed at the start of the magazine, the writers are presented with their full Incarna bodies which makes a nice change.
There is a Profile on Red vs Blue which I was happy to see, I looked into them a long time ago and occasionally read up about what's been happening. The continuous war between the two corporations intrigues me, much as Faction Warfare did before it was long forgotten by CCP. I am planning on throwing a fresh PvP alt in there at some point.
Fellow corpie Kirith Kodachi talks about wormhole ships in this issues Test Flight.
Our friendly roleplayer Angus McDecoy has a piece on the Guristas.
Some other interesting bits that I haven't read yet but have grabbed my attention include: 0.0 report covering the destruction of the NC and the fights that led up to it. CCP Sreegs and CCP Explorer get a going over. Chronicles, as to be expected. A piece on Tony Gonzales. A review of the Apocrypha expansion. A bit about the CSM. A Recruiting article. A knowledge base about wormholes.
Then, to top off the fantastic issue. When you close the magazine you get to see the new, stunning, Project Halibut advert on the back cover.
