I read so much into the lore threads, I wanted to read a whole book about it. Just a suggestion for the far future, I would also read a community made book :)
There's image files in the game that include glimpses of the lore if you go looking. Mostly supply manifests and the like, but also a bit of stuff like this.
If you haven't seen it already, Zarkonnen.com has several short, mostly non-Airships-related worldbuilding stories that make for interesting reading. They can be found under the fiction or worldbulding tags (there's some overlap). The 7th-level re-insurance company one is particularly amusing to me.

Zarkonnen is putting some, interesting, ahem, imagery in my head.

Sorry, this just fits better than typing letters.
