This is for role players or fan fiction writers of EVE Online. I’m just reposting some links from my old game community wiki EVEFiction.com, which is going offline in December 2010. Here’s¬† a related blog post about my failed site, EVEFiction.com. And here’s a post where I listed some of the races and factions information. Bear in mind that these lists have not been updated in the last year or two.

How many crew onboard a ship?

Yes, ships most definitely have crew. This is the single most repeated question of EVE backstory, and it’s one of the most obvious to answer.
