Heroes' Festival- The Dream Hero (EQ2)

I decided to adventure into Norrath for a bit tonight and check out the celebration. After some wandering around (I've never seen so many people in Qeynos at one time!!), I made my way to North Qeynos, where I stumbled upon a guard asking me to check out the celebrations and locate an impostor. For my reward Queen Antonia Bale granted me a dazzling firework selection. She sauntered down the steps and gave me a long winded speech as well! It was lovely to see her in the 'pixels'.

I also found, all across Qeynos, a collection of odds and ends and was rewarded with a beautiful Tapestry of Luclin. You can find these collection items all over Freeport and Qeynos. I then made my way upon a Dwarf who pointed me in the direction of a troubled dreamer. This is where it got fun! I adventured into several dreams to retrieve shards for the dreamer so that he could complete his quest and finally wake. In the end I was granted with the title (Decree) The Dream Hero.

I've not gotten a chance to see (a lot of) the beautiful Norrath of EQ2. Some places like Unrest and Karnor's which  I've yet to see within this realm of Everquest, so it was quite a treat. It's very nice on a nostalgic note, to see these places I remember adventuring in from years ago in another game. Unrest was like going back in time, same layout even down to the gazebo and the fountain out front! It was so nice to be able to see that some of the story still fits into place exactly.

I absolutely love fluff and the title was icing on the cake with this event, for me. The quests were lovely, simple yet fun. I even got some nifty house items; a gorgeous painting, a statue and the lovely Tapestry of Luclin.This was a very fun and rewarding event, I was very glad I was able to participate this year.

All in all I am very glad I logged in tonight for the event. I didn't think I would have time but it turns out I had more than enough time to adventure in Norrath before Turkey Day! Wishing you all a wonderful Thanksgiving and Everquest 2 another wonderful five years!
