Blog Banter 39: Home



Welcome to the 39th Blog Banter - the community discussion that stretches across the many communities of EVE Online through the use of arcane bloggery. The conversation is open to all and readers are encouraged to visit all of the entries that will be listed below as the discussion progresses. Be sure to leave your thoughts there when you do.

For enquiring minds who would like to know more about the Blog Banters, check out this short explanation or read this overview of the subjects covered in the last year.

After a some heavy topics in the last few editions, this time we'll be taking a more relaxed trip through the thoughts of the blogosphere. The origins of this month's concept come from a suggestion from EON Magazine editor Richie "Zapatero" Shoemaker.

"Some say a man's home is his castle. For others it is wherever they lay their hat. The concept is just as nebulous in the New Eden sandbox. 

In EVE Online, what does the concept of "home" mean to you?"

Without further ado, banter on.

  2. You sometimes forget how amazing the Eve universe looks. Just had a nice tour of Gallente, Caldari and Amarr space taking screenies of all my old "homes".

  8. At first I didn't really know what to write about that subject, but then I looked at the picture of the Eagle Nebula on my desktop background, and I knew.

    Home is where the Hulk is
