    EverQuest

    I was watching ESPN sport Center last night and they were interviewing Curt Schilling, a pitcher for the Red Sox. He had on a black baseball hat with "EverQuest" on the front in gold.

    Yes, Schilling is an avid EQ player. There was an article some time ago where he talked about how he and a team-mate of his on the Phillies used to play together, even after Schilling moved to another team. Then one night that other player "got his paladin killed" and the next time he came to bat...

    There are a few celebs running around the EQ/MMORPG worlds.

    Only Schilling could get away with that hat .

    He's a really intelligent guy. I'm a big fan.

    Bingbong?! What kind of name is that for a noble dwarf? :P And if they are only fighting aviaks in Butcher, his beloved character was probably below level 10 unless he didn't notice a 2nd aviak agro.

    Even so, such bitterness over a level 10ish character's death? Boy I would hate to see if he was 65 and left to rot in Ferubi or such, he just might shoot a dog and burn a house down over that. :P

    It might be worth noting that that article is about 3 years old.

    Here's a more recent article including Curt's side of that:

    Schilling has written a review or two on EQ's expansions for PC Gamer as well. I know he was the reviewer for Planes of Power, and I think Luclin too.

    R.A. Salvatore plays on Firiona Vie, I believe.

    Also heard Britney Spears plays EQ, but I doubt the validity of that one...

    Well, he's going to edit them . I think he's got a staff of writers who will actually compile them. Hopefully they turn out to be something worth reading. I've always been interested in a little bit deeper side of EQ Lore.

    Hmm...books to be published several times per year starting in summer 2004 with strategy tips laid out in them...think this is yet another attempt by Sony to keep folks interested in EQ with WoW coming out? Gee, I wonder....

    Or just to continue to capitalize on the successes of EQ.

    I remember when they started doing this with M:tG - it was just another way to squeeze another 4 bucks from the players.

    I knew something like this would happen sooner or later. I wouldn't mind trying to write for this. I wonder if there's any way I could get in contact with the powers that be.

    not even RA Salvatore can make "place tank in corner, chain heal for 30 minutes until Emperor Ssra dies" interesting. And any attempt to do so will show just how illogical it is in a real setting.

    If you want to turn the brain setting to a low simmer with a EQ flavoring, these books are for you.

    Seems like the most complete compilation of EQ lore on the web to me.
