Happy 20th Birthday EverQuest!!!

Happy Birthday EverQuest! The big 2-0. While I have only played for 19 years, starting in 2000, I knew of it before I started playing. I didn't know much and I wasn't really interested until I saw others actually playing it. Once I did I was hooked. I still play to this day, not consistently, more so playing EQ2 these days as my main game but I still love to log in and play a few times a month.

EverQuest was like nothing I had experienced before, it was a different time and people were different. It really was a wonderful experience. I have many great memories, many annoying memories as well, corpse runs, losing levels and so on. I did meet my husband there 16 years ago and that is my favorite memory. I have EverQuest to thank for meeting the most wonderful guy!

Right now, as I write this post, I am trying to stay in the queue without getting a time out for the new Selo progression server. There are two servers; a normal and fast paced. Yes! I just got in! And now I am making a few characters saving names I want, as I always try to do. They get snapped up pretty quickly.

Years ago I didn't like the progression servers so much, as I felt they didn't capture the same feeling that we all had so many years ago. But these days I love to play on them and join in on the excitement and see the world bursting at the seams with people on launch day, seeing the world more populated. It is exciting and a lot of fun to join in, even 20 years after the initial launch.

We all like to think we have witty names. I settled on a main, Necromancer, named Anorexia. Skeleton form and all, I thought it pretty suiting. I've seen President and Bozo and then the more common names and the like. It is always funny to look at each name as they pass you. It is great seeing the world filled with eager explorers. I myself take my time and just enjoy the initial rush, running back Neriak Third Gate to sell and buy those first few spells. I'm writing as I zone, playing, medding, writing, lol. I have a pet, yes! That'll make things much easier, a little minion to do my bidding. If you've followed my blog, you may remember that I tend to lean towards the class in games with it being that was my first class in EverQuest so many years ago.

I love navigating through the old starting cities. I got SO lost countless times in Neriak, years ago. Now I can run around it with no issues, it is home away from home. Very few games have such a rich setting full of so many cities to start in, I miss that. That old spark is still there, the excitement, the promise of adventures yet to be. I wasn't sure if I would want to play on another progression server, but Selo is a fast track server, starting with more expansions out and it yields better experience for easier catch up. I hope Dire will play, he says maybe.

No long post today, I need to kill a few more decaying skeletons before I log out to make supper. Sharing a few screenshots, more posts to come as I adventure on Selo. Maybe I will even poke in on the new EQ2 server too.

Happy 20 EverQuest, may you have another 20 more! One can wish! Check this post out for more info on the anniversary and the new servers on the official site, which looks pretty snazzy with the new look!

Mages seem very popular...

  1. Exogenous ketone bodies are also an invaluable workout aid providing a quantifiable energy boost when you need it most and alleviating the need to rely on caffeine to provide that extra gear in the gym. KETO LIT BHB are pure in concept and execution with a limited ingredient list that demonstrates how focused the product is on helping you burn fat. There are three different kinds of Betahydroxybutyrate (BHB) salts along with magnesium stearate, rice flour and gelatin and that's it.


  2. Ashley Madison is one of the most non-traditional dating websites you will find on the internet. It has somewhat of an infamous reputation for helping people cheat on their partners. It has come under a lot of criticism from women and men alike, but it is still up and running. In fact, it is extremely popular with hundreds of thousands of active users. Discretion is obviously top priority for this dating site, but there is more to it than meets the eye. This is perhaps the most fascinating date site every conceived, and certainly the most controversial.
