The Elder War Tour
A trip round all the battle sites from the Elder War of YC110, as depicted in the novel EVE: The Empyrean Age by Tony Gonzales.
Introduction. The Elder War of YC110 was the result of a militant faction within the Minmatar Republic (the Elders) discovering a remnant of the previously-thought-lost Starkmanir tribe enslaved on Jarizza VI within Ammatar space. The Elders then built a fleet in secret that would be used to free them. On a single day in YC110, this fleet invaded four separate systems in an attempt to prevent CONCORD and the Amarr Empire from responding to the Elders’ intended liberation of the enslaved Starkmanir along with all other Matari slaves trapped in the Empire.
The aftermath of these battles can still be seen today…
