The Game Archaeologist mourns the end of EQMac

In 2003, Sony Online Entertainment tried an experiment to reach out to the (then) small-but-growing community of Mac users.

EQ Lore: The Bastion of Thunder

Fabled Planes of Power lore part 12: The Crypt of Decay

Once a year, on the anniversary of EverQuest's launch, the gods and monsters long past their prime are given new vigor and power and are reborn as Fabled versions of themselves. For one month only, they are powerful enough to challenge even the greatest of guilds, and drop much more powerful...

Could Planes of Power be the next EverQuest II expansion?

The Ancient Gaming Noob is a great title for a blog. Even better: the blog offers insightful and intelligent commentary on Massively Multiplayer games. In fact, about a year ago Wilhelm (the blog's author) prognosticated the Kunark setting for the next EverQuest II expansion. When he stepped up to...
