City-State Sanctuaries

The New Eden Trading Company effort is over, and the structures have been given away to new owners – Fafer and Max Singularity. They (along with me) will form a league of City-State Sanctuaries (Freeported Keepstars). We also check in with Vily of TEST Alliance on their recent victories in war, and we end with a closer look at theory crafting with Pando, from Initiative.

  • Matterall
  • Apothne (Pandemic Legion)


  • Fafer (Ghost Legion, DRF)
  • Max Singularity (6th Empire “The Space Pope”)
