YEAR 2949

AS our magazine issues are released and welcomed, our enduring efforts are honored by the COMMUNITY MVP by RSI staff. This is IMPERIAL GEOGRAPHIC christening. Now everyone, in the ‘Verse knows us and our way of telling the ‘Verse, one story at a time.

YEAR 2948

IMPERIAL GEOGRAPHIC is founded, on December 6th, by Bantam Cumberly, Chinmay and Biva with the mission to give citizens thrills and emotions related to the beauty of the ‘Verse. It’s primary mission is to take the ultimate shot, the ultimate picture of the universe, enclosed in a glimpse.

Manifesto

VERSION : 1.0

LAST UPDATE: DECEMBER 6TH, 2948

A NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATION

IMPGEO is a non-profit scientific and educational organizations which operates within the UEE territory. Its interests include geography, archaeology, and natural science, the promotion of environmental and historical conservation, and the study of ‘Verse culture and history.

EXPLORATION IS OUR MAIN GOALS

IMPGEO revolves around exploration. All our job is focused on exploring new territories and, even better, getting to know the area of the ‘Verse we live in. Our fleet’s main goal is to reach the ultimate star and taking the ultimate shot while getting there. To us, destination is not so relevant. It’s the journey which matter the most.

STUDYING THEVERSE

Explorations means many things. To us, it implies a better understanding of what surrounds us. To do so our expeditions are intended to be a moment, for our members, to view the ‘Verse in a different angle. Reporting what we see is our duty, in order to let others experience what we felt first hand.

PUBLICATIONS

As explorers, we aim to collect information and shots of what we find during our journeys and deliver them to the citizens of the ‘Verse. In doing so we publish several periodicals. Here’s the actual list.

  • COSMIC: our flagship magazine. It aims to deliver stunning pics of the ‘Verse and tell its story.
  • JOURNEY: the magazine which deals with emotions and the drama of living in the ‘Verse.
  • THRESHOLD: speed, velocity and extreme experiences. This magazine is intended for anyone who pushes forward at maximum speed.
  • TOURING: a more classic magazine. It’s intended to be a sort of classic travel guide.
  • NOIR: a new type of magazine, which tells a different story of the ‘Verse.

TAKING THE ULTIMATE DRAMATIC SHOT

Our members (main and affiliates) explore the ‘Verse with their ships, minding their business but with the goal to take the ultimate dramatic shot. All shots collected and submitted to IMPGEO will be scrutinized and, ultimately, inserted in our magazines.
