Many current and soon-to-be-returning EverQuest
fans are diligently keeping tabs on the new progression server. This unique server will allow players to travel back in time (in a way) to experience EQ
from its humble beginnings through all of its expansion packs as they are rolled out at a measured pace. Now these fans have a name to put with the server: Fippy Darkpaw.
This server name was the result of a one-week poll in which SOE
offered six potential names for the new shard. According to EverQuest's website
, "In the end, nothing could stop the raging juggernaut that was Fippy Darkpaw."
Fippy is a well-known NPC with the suicidal tendency to attack Qeynos all by his lonesome.
This new progression server is scheduled to open its doors in March
. In the meantime, why not check out our recent interview with EQ Producer Thom Terrazas
for more Norrathian news.
