Summer of 99. Played both EQ & UO for about 5-6 years. Left UO when it started becoming item based like EQ (AoS) and quit playing EQ when they started churning out instanced content. Canceled Station Access when NGE came to SWG and PlanetSide got screwed up. Kunark was the best expansion for EQ. Played EQ EMU off and on since the early EQEMU days, more as it became stable. I've had subs to many mmo's, fav genre, and do/done dev work on indie mmo's (content).

My friend and I started in June of '99. We were die-hard UO fans, but eventually the awesome (lol) graphics of EQ broke our will and we were compelled to switch games. I played 'till about '02 casually, while my buddy went hardcore 'till '05. The live progression servers brought me back in '06, and I have dabbled in various emu servers ever since.

During that time I showed the game to my 3 brothers, and the 4 of us are having a blast on Project 1999 currently.

Kunark.. as soon as I saw the game advertised with playable Lizardmen (Iksar) I bought a new PC.. and EQ as soon as it was running.

I remember some guy taunting me and annoying me to no end.. just being a real pita. Prompted me to move to Rallos Zek so I could kill them. I got hooked on PvP there for years.. still am hooked on it in every game I play.. lol.

I've never played Everquest before Project1999. I went out of town to go visit a buddy last October and right when I got there he said something to the effect of "So you like killing dragons and shit?" I'd never killed a dragon and said I'd certainly like to try. I arbitrarily rolled a barb shaman upon returning home.

Now I'm a junkie.

June of 99. Started on Quellious 1 week after it went live. Dark Elf Rogue named Phuq... hehe needless to say after about 15 min of being lost in Neriak a GM asked me to change it haha.

Default Summer 1999

I discovered EverQuest in an issue of PC Gamer magazine. It was one of the featured articles and it told a story of a wonderous, persistent place called Norrath. It spoke of heroes and great deeds, of massive cities and deep oceans. It was a land of mystery and danger, filled with great treasure to those bold enough to pick up a sword or staff and adventure. That article sold me on it. I think I still have that issue around somewhere in a box in the basement.

My first experience was on Veeshan and I played there until Lanys launched. I played through Planes of Power and stopped when I hit 65. My friends even baked me a cake (lame I know).

I've gone back to Norrath now and again but it isn't the same. This... is as close as it is going to get and I am very grateful to the team that has organized and maintained this server. Thank you for bringing a charming memory back to life for me.

-formerly Daevrikk Darkheart, 65th level Necromancer, Lanys server
-current Daevrikk, 10th level Necromancer, Project1999 server

I started July of 99. At release I would always go to my friends house to watch him play, he had a dwarf paladin. The world amazed me and caught my attention immediately. When I finally got my own copy, I was in heaven. I had a 166mhz processor and 32 mb of ram with a 6mb video card. Let's just say I had to look at the ground while in game just to be able to move without lagging out. I kept with it and eventually got to level 50 on a barbarian shaman (Everfrost was the only zone that didn't lag terribly for me). Everquest has changed my life, and I am glad you guys brought it back for all of us to relive and enjoy.
