House of Thule Prelude Events
The launch of the House of Thule expansion was preceded by four Prelude Events. They are no longer in the game and are listed here only for historical purposes.
From EverQuest Players News:
|“|| Many adventurers have noted that something odd is afoot in Norrath. People are acting strangely indeed!
Normally reasonable people seem to be more aggressive and Norrathian heroes have noticed many strange behaviors in their home towns!
If you've noticed these unusual occurrences and wish to investigate further, seek out Trevis, a lizardman, in the Plane of Knowledge.
According to Kiara, EverQuest Community Manager, the first two parts of the Prelude Events are live with the "third part" of the Prelude Events beginning Monday, September 27, 2010 and the "fourth part" will happen on Monday, October 4, 2010.
Invasion of the Fearless is the third part mentioned. No word yet on what the fourth part is.
