Empire of the Sun has a lot of fans, but it's still pretty cool when one of them is JJ Abrams! The Star Trek director and creator of Lost said, "Empire of The Sun ... "make music that gets stuck in my head, and then it's in my head all damn day...They're awesome."
How cool is that?? Here's a clip of him saying it and talking about Empire of the Sun (listen from 7:14 on for the music bit)!
We are thankful for all of the supporters out there that have supported our website throughout it's toughest times, and trust us! in a matter of days, this Empire will be full loaded with Empyrean content and so much more!
Merry Christmas to you all!
For the Empire and it's Citizens!

We're pretty much devistated and sad that we all the time need to make changes, as well as get used to changes we didn't even decide to do, because of our provider Wikia.
This month we came to an conclusion that unfortunately, there has been a very big mistake in our database causing our service (TheEmperianTimes) to get shut down for a while, and recarnated with a new name.
The reason is that we noticed now that Emperian must be changed to Empyrean because that is how you spell "Empyrean" in the end, without any errors.
This means that this blog will be shut down for some days, and recarnated into "TheEmpyreanTimes" making the stable release date of this website postponed to yet some days, as well creating a big confusion on this website, bo…
The New design is finally here! Now you can experience the website with faster loading, and with amazing new features!

design which is yet not designed! but the new design will be
rolling out pretty soon fixing everything and even more... and
We have ALOT of new articles, ideas... and even a new front page coming up! so it all looks good!
Not only that... we will do our best job to recruit more loyal citizens into this Emperian wiki!

We here were shocked when we first heard about that our service
provider, Wikia, is changing it's main design which we have used...
and been proud of it in months now.
But unfortunately it's all changing, and from our beloved Monaco-design, we need to change to the unwanted but forcly-needed Oasis design.
To let you into our designing world, we've decided to show off our plans for the new design! and we want your opinions about it!
So here you go!
What do you think about our plans for the new design?
It's a huge difference... we know! But we cannot change the way the new design will work, but we can change the background... colors and everything visually!
So don't be afraid and let us know if you enjoy the planned look... or if you would rather …
Rumours say, that the Steele family is on the move! - moving from Australia to New Zealand! As the rumours says, the Steele moved and were celebrating little Sunny Tiger's second birthday in the new house, with shopping and eating cake mix as the celebration treat!
We only wish the Steele family the best in New Zealand if this
is true! and hopefully New Zealand already greeted them with open
...and ofcourse we congratulate little Sunny with many emperian hugs!
Bye Australia... Hi New Zealand!
We want to thank the anonymous commentor on this article which cleared that this is only a rumour, thank you! - be sure to become a citizen soon to get credit with your name on it!
[September 5, 2010] - The great war against Wikia

[July 26, 2010] - The intense work on the Wiki is back!
We here, on EOTS Wiki, are motivated and working really hard to
keep the empire here on this wiki alive.
We kept the Wiki updated throughout our vaccation break, and managed to write some new news entries aswell as some articles, as for example: Emperor Steele's article here on this wiki.
Because we want to keep the Wiki as special as it can get, we do never "copy and paste" any articles from other sites in this site,
We do research instead and then mindstorm it into one single article, creating a flawless, detailed and pleasant reading for the citizens.
But even though we work in such way and on our free time, we are not satisfied.
Now, the real intense work is back on this Wiki!
We will be…
