Sightseeing in the Cluster

Pandemic Legion Monument

Amamake 1

A monument from the Alliance Tournament

If there was any pirate haven more well known than Rancer, it was Amamake.  Cruel and harsh even to the most veteran capsuleers, it was a place that I tried to avoid as much as possible.  So, of course, one of the sites that came up in my searches of the GalNet put Amamake on my list of systems to check out.  Needless to say, I was more than a little wary of taking the Professor into the proverbial lion’s den, but I was not one to be deterred on my mission.

The monument sits a few kilometers away from the Osoggur gate

I cautiously probed out the system as the Professor stabilized after jump.  Surprisingly, I appeared to have caught a slow night, there was a lonely BS sitting on my entrance gate, but I quickly engaged the Professor’s cloaking systems and was on my way.  Surprisingly, I found that my lead hadn’t been lying at all: sitting on the Osoggur gate stood a small temple.  Similar in design to the one I had found in Amarr, the temple stood as a testament to the tenaciousness of a relative newcomer on the Alliance scene: Pandemic Legion.

Due to my concerns about the system, I kept the Professor cloaked while examining the monument

After digging into the GalNet files a bit more, I learned that it was constructed in celebration of Legion’s win in the recently organized Alliance Tournaments.  The alliance had apparently managed a bit of an upset, and this monument was built in their honor.  I was a little surprised to see the obvious Amarr influences on the design, especially considering the fact that we were pretty significantly into Minmatar space, but all things considered it still somehow seemed a fitting tribute to them.  Figuring by this point that I had pressed my luck as much as possible, I quickly banked the Professor towards the gate and out of Amamake without incident.

Basic Information:

  • Attraction: Pandemic Legion Monument (Osoggur gate)
  • System: Amamake
  • Security Rating: 0.4
  • Region: Heimatar
  • Potential Hazards: Amamake is a well-known pirate haven.  Be prepared for gate camps.  Low sec travel is needed to get to the landmark.  Caution is advised.

    Heh, Arukemos, the lack of pirates is definitely a GOOD thing when you’re traveling solo in a Buzzard

    And thanks, Roc, nice to have Eve-lebrities on the site!
