The Gallenteans. Self-righteous, meddling, pompous and tiresome, or virile liberalists and defenders of the free world. Love them or hate them, you simply can’t ignore them. 1
What race you decide to run in Eve used to make a difference. Now the only difference is the appearance possibilities of your avatar.
In the world of EVE, the Gallentean are the kings of entertainment, mass-producing everything from cheap porn-flicks to elaborate stage-shows for an ever-hungry public. They boast the most elaborate luxury space yachts, and the most glittering hotel reservoirs. Anything your mind or body could ever crave, the Gallenteans have plenty of it. (same source as above)
Now you may figure that I already have plans to do a series on the races of Eve. Not a bad idea but also not my current plan. I look a lot of places for inspirations for my blogs and today came from twitter that lead me to instagram and I thought . . . this, this man is Gallente. Who?
And yet, in the current day and age he is controversial. Sexist and a dinosaur of a time best left in the dust or erased some might say. Not me, but then I may be about his age though no where near his tax bracket.
Gallente is about living life free, no shame, giving everyone the opportunity to succeed . . . or fail miserably. Again from the same source?
Many of the wealthiest people in the world are Gallenteans, creating a constant demand for luxury goods. At the same time, the ranks of the poor number millions, because while the liberal market-driven economy and individual freedom may allow everybody the chance to advance to the top, they make it just as easy to plummet to the very bottom of the social ladder.
Win, lose, I chose Gallente for my race because of the contrast, the chance to be the one who won (or the one who lost) It is things like this in the real world that help connect me to my game world. I know that that sounds a bit odd but it is true. I LIKE having an anchor for my characters, when I lose said anchor I have been known to trash them and try again. I have lost track of how many false starts I have done in Elder scrolls online.
I connect to my character which is why I do this blog, to a certain extent. I enjoy writing and making the bridges between the game world and our modern real world. You may not agree with my position . . .that is ok. Heck you may not like the vid above . . . but I do and the one below as well
he flies it like he won it, may you be able to do the same.
