Default Cities of Norrath

Hello everyone, I make silly videos on the internet that some people may or may not have seen.

A few months ago I started a new series called Cities of Norrath where I break down the starting cities of classic EQ. The first episode can be found here: probably easier to watch than for me to explain the videos structure in this post.

However the reason for this post is not to plug my videos. As I mention in the link above, Qeynos was really the only city I knew well enough to show all the cool easter eggs and other interesting bits of information that the city has.

Moving forward with the series I am looking for help from the community to cover easter eggs and the like for the other cities. I have already posted the Freeport episode which ended up taking a more lore approach rather than easter eggs. I am currently working on Rivervale and either Halas or Neriak will come after that depending on the viewers vote in the last videos comments.

So please if anyone has any little tidbit or easter egg about any of these cities please let me know, I will be giving shoutouts in the videos to anyone who contributes, provided the information isn't just completely made up of course. [You must be logged in to view images.

Fantastic video! - you briefly touched on the enemies of Qeynos leadership - would it be possible to link these factions to their allies in other cities?

For example, Halas rogue guild has much different goals than the rest of the city - who are they working with and why, if there's a reason. Something like that but explained better.

Yes that is a great idea. The main thing I have to work out with these sorts of things is how to implement them without interrupting the flow of the video. I will certainly look into the rogue guild in Halas and see if I can dig up some juicy info that might fit in, thanks!

I don't know much about Neriak or Halas, but I have spent a lot of time in Highpass Keep. It's one of the most unique zones in the game, I think it would be great for one of these videos. There's a lot of lore you could dig up here, most of it seems to be left incomplete by the developers.

• Carson McCabe is the ruler of Highpass and has his own faction. He seems to have shady connections all over Norrath. For example, killing some of the bouncers in Rivervale or the Halfling Rogue GM, Lendel Deeppockets, will drop your faction with Carson McCabe.

• There is a full-blown casino in on the second floor with blackjack tables, poker, etc.

• There is a paranoid NPC named Isabella Cellus who roams around the second floor of the zone spamming in /say that she believes someone is following her.. For what reason nobody knows.

• Various guards in the zone are named after classical composers

• The top floor is Carson's personal living quarters where both his wife, Lady McCabe, as well as a Mistress McCabe live. Princess Lenya is being held captive in the zone by Lady McCabe with the help of Tyrana

That should be more than enough to get you going. It's one of the more underappreciated zones out there.

Isabella Cellus, poped up in qeynos hill son superbits and bobs last vid.

HHK has a secret area on the top floor, at 100/n300, can be explored on zone viewer, but none knows how to get into it.

For Neriak please include the hidden tunnels they have. These tunnels connect the 3 zones together, they don't really serve a known purpose that I'm aware of, no npcs.

Your videos are amazing! I visit the forums all the time in the hopes that someone does something interesting/creative/fun with Everquest and most days I am disappointed. You should definitely "plug" your stuff here when you make it - I had no idea you made videos until I randomly happened upon your Freeport one : )

Needless to say I am looking forward to Rivervale! It's such a weird city - theres a brownie guy, a scarecrow man, why does the fools gold contain like, 4 paintings of the qeynos tax collection building?????, for some reason there are like, halfing children and grandparents and such throughout the city? Rivervale seems like such a harsh contrast compared to the rest of the game. It also seems like Mayor Gubbin has a wife that he keeps in the back of the city in a dingy hobbit hole.... and speaking of hobbits -

Halfings are like, the most spot on interpretation of hobbits from Tolkien's writings that I've ever seen! ( as most people probably know ) Their characteristics, being stealthy when they need to be, having a fascination with food, no shoes! their clothing, architecture, family fueds, surnames - I mean I could start quoting the texts but no one want to hear that - But the only real easter egg / reference that I could find is a merchant in WC at one of the inns ( the one closest to EC ) named Sorsha Hobbitfriend - not really a rivervale thing, but hey its about halflings.
