EverQuest looks for player stories for its anniversary

This is... better?

The memories that have been forged in EverQuest are numerous, due in no small part to just how long the game has been running. For the game’s anniversary this year, the development team wants to hear exactly those stories to help celebrate, but not just to make the staff feel better about the impact two decades of EQ has had on people. No, submissions can be included in the game’s official anniversary celebration, whether you’re sharing by video or just by good old-fashioned text.

Players who want to share a personal story in text can submit the written anecdote by February 11th for a chance to be featured in a 20-year retrospective on PC Gamer. Meanwhile, those who have some video skill are encouraged to make a video no longer than 15 seconds about the changes EQ brought into their lives, with submitted videos possibly being featured in a full-on video compilation. Check out the details on the official site and get ready to look back across the vast network of player experience stories.

I remember logging in from a previous session into a teleportation ring and being accused of interrupting a wedding in progress. A number of private messages with vulgar messages began. Elves can be rude.

I began to commit suicide many times by crawling to the top of the teleportation ring and jumping to my death. I did not care as more and more people told me i was being offensive and reported.

No one would let me kiss the bride or groom.

I remember the time my Troll Shaman named Algae gathered bone chips and turned them into the guard outside Cabilis for days. Algae finally got to where the Iksar let him into the city.

Some of the NPCs would even sell goods to him. I spent a lot of time in my youth just fully immersed in Everquest, swimming in the canals of Cabilis, waving to confused Iksar players, drinking (in game and IRL), and fishing.

The entire reason I spent all of that time and energy turning in bone chips for Iksar reputations was so that I could join the rest of my guild, ‘The Drunken Fishermen’s on their fishing tournaments of fishing and drinking in game while drinking IRL.

I remember (kinda) many a nights of drunken players stuck in the water canals of Cabilis, unable to use the ladder to get out … Or even find the ladder.

EQ only needs one story.

“TRAIN TO ZONE!”

Being a feign death tank (SK) made this kind of thing so much easier to deal with. I could stay at the zoneline and watch the mobs leave so my group wouldn’t walk back in and get killed by the train. :D

Didn’t they do this once before, to hype up Everquest Next?
I could have sworn they had a ton of submissions that they compiled for the Fan Faire before ponytail showed everyone Tony the Tiger and you heard a collective wtf.

It is not the first nor do I think it is the second time they have done this. I guess it is the only card they feel like they can play.

Don’t you dare speak ill of the EQN Kerran designs 😭

I loved the direction they were going with Kerran
