Quiz 20: Frogloks

This week's EQ Quiz is about Frogloks. They live all around us, deep within some of the most dangerous dungeons of the lands and walk freely in many other zones. They are non-hostile to those of goodly gods and strike fiercly at those who worship the evil ones. How much do you know about these amphibians?

This "just for fun" quiz will challenge all that you know, or might not know, about Frogloks. Take the test and see how much you know .. or don't know about the Frog People of EQ.

EQ States

A new web site has just opened:
With so many people unable to attend the large official EQ Fan Faires, I thought it would be a good idea if I could help them find other players in their home state and local areas.

Many of the other boards are sorted by server, but I wanted this board to sort players by their home state. EQ players can sign up at the EZ board chat page beginning July 15th.

I will post announcements of any gatherings and parties held in your state at the official EQ States webpage. Please remember to let me know if the gathering is "private" or "public" in your announcement. DLIsabella of Innoruuk
Sounds pretty interesting .. head on over and check them out!

Sony Developers Corner

Discussion on a Role Playing Server.
Thoughts from Verant about how a role playing server should work. This would be a PvE "Player versus Environment" server. It would be enforced role playing, mostly through the use of racial languages. There are a lot of ideas being thrown around on this thread, so go check it out!

Ask Brad.
The latest "Ask Brad" is from July 9th. The topics covered include the design of Velious, online gaming, downtime, and finishing the old world zones.

More Sullon Zek Changes.
Hobart updates players on PvP Immunity and other topics.

What do you think of Verant's account transfer policy?

It's Great!
It Sucks!
Don't Care!
