Tholuxe Paells/Saryn/Bertox Server Guk The City of Guk instantly comes to mind, extremely similar to the AD&D Bullywug race of frogmen in the Fiend Folio.

Everquest Kiranos, Druid, Tunare Server Finding Everquest I starting playing EQ not long before the Luclin expansion launched. I don’t remember exactly when I became aware of the game, but I know when I first played it — at a LAN party at my buddy’s house. I was in high school, and had no money, …

Renataki, the Illusionist (EQ2)

Renataki, Coercer, Najena/Unrest server Neriak I just found the city beautiful. A very faithful recreation of the original, but with updated graphics. Also, it was all one zone, compared to Freeport and Qeynos. Commonlands (see image above) I started my leveling process in Commonlands. My first groups were there and I mastered Charm in that zone. …
