A new Eve novel is coming out called The Burning Life and according to
[I]t will focus on the game's pirate factions. Hjalti explains more about this in his most recent dev blog: "For quite some time I've been dying to put more focus on the pirates. They've been there with us all this time, like creepy nannies - watching over us when we mine, hanging out to greet us at the gates..." 

A new Eve expansion is coming out called Dominion and will focus on the Sovreignty overhaul as well as "includes the introduction of pirate epic arcs".

When is The Burning Life novel being published? According to, March 2nd, 2010.

When is the Dominion Expansion being released? They say Winter 2009. Maybe it will be pushed back to March 2010? Or will we see another expansion called The Burning Life on March 10th, 2010?

Curiouser and curiouser....


  1. "Creepy Nannies" - I like that.

    Now every time I go out mining I'm going to think of some kind of deranged Mary Poppins in a frigate, shooting at me.

  2. ah but we're seeing Pirate epic arcs in Dominion.

  3. ALSO, there was an event on the test server recently where players were told to bring faction ships only for feedback on their balance. So they're definitely thinking about the pirate ships.

  4. well look at this quote from the referenced Dev Blog, it seems to indicate there won't be an expansion by that name---

    "These are stories that take place in EVE, but they are not the sole story of EVE. One major difference between this novel and the last one we published is that The Burning Life will not be the focus of an expansion, nor will it be the culmination of that particular point in our storyline. It'll be part of EVE lore, but we're going to weave in its plotlines through a myriad of smaller threads."

  5. It's about time we pirates got more recognition.
    Without us the market would slow, less ships will be destroyed which will lead to a surplus of asteroids and finally, bored capsuleers.

    We keep the market active.
