Default Karana Plague Discussion

The Karana Plague was always something I remembered fondly from live. It was active when I started playing the game in 2001 and as all of my characters back then were from Qeynos I spent a lot of time in the zones that were effected by it.

Fast forward 12 years and I discover P99 and my love for classic EQ starts all over again. However when I started in 2013, I could not find any information on the internet about this Karana Plague and the majority of the people who I asked if they remembered it in game had no idea what I was talking about. I started to wonder if this was some sort of event that happened on my server only or if I was actually crazy and had just imagined the entire thing.

Then one day I had returned from one of my extended breaks of p99 and by coincidence I was passing through North Karana when I noticed the message "your skin feels itchy". Excitedly I look up to the sky and notice it is green, turns out I was not imagining this afterall.

So the reason for this post is that I am trying to piece together all the information I can to do with this event before it is finished. I believe it will end once the Chardok 2.0 patch goes live and as far as I am aware that patch could drop any day now so I want to try and see or do as much of this stuff as I can before it is too late. Here are some of the things I have found so far, but please I encourage anyone reading this to add anything and everything that they might think relates to the Karana Plague event.
  • The event was triggered by the awakening of the sleeper? I have read this a few places around the internet saying that is what triggered the event during classic. I was not actively playing when the sleeper awoke on p99 can anyone either confirm or deny if this happened on our server?

  • Plane of Disease? I have seen a few posts that suggest this entire event was supposed to be a lead up to the release of a Plane of Disease but then the idea was suddenly cancelled before the event ended. How much of this do you think was rumour/hearsay? PoD did eventually get released in the PoP expansion, but I like to try and imagine what a classic era Plane of Disease would have looked like.

  • Rude individuals? According to some very old eq posts some NPCs called Rude Individuals popped up around qeynos and would harrass players that passed by them. After a few weeks they turned into Loathsome Individuals and their camps spread out into qeynos hills and some new quests opened up that involved them, gnolls bandits and all sorts of other things. I don't know if any of this is true or if its a load of crap. I did manage to find a screenshot of a rude individual on allakhazam and there some interesting comments to be read below it. Can anyone confirm or deny if this ever happened on live or here on p99?

  • The Prime Healer's Bulwark! I was running through EC tunnel when I saw a human druid wearing a plate BP that I did not recognise. Upon stopping and asking him what it was he showed me The Prime Healers Bulwark and told me it was a gift from the gods for curing the plague in the Karanas. Speculation as to whether the curing event and reward will happen on p99, what do you think?

  • Quests!? I know of a few quests that seem directly related to the plague. The bread shipment quests will apparently be removed once the event ends, will the rabid wolf and bear pelt quests from Qeynos also be removed? Does anyone know of any other quests or NPCs that will cease to exist when the plague is gone, please list them here!


TLDR: Trying to gather up as much info and lore about the Karana Plague before it is gone.

The rude individuals had to have been true to some extent BECAUSE the first weapon i ever remember having was this on my cleric. http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/item.html?item=97

apparently they only dropped from those guys during the 2 week event or however long it lasted, making the item super rare later on. I always wanted to find another one once my original was lost to time but I never could : (

*i remember a quest for this ring too http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/item.html?item=1636

I definitely remmeber the rude individual in qeynos on small camps around qeynos gate... Unsure if that was from the first plague event or added later, like maybe when they added the badge of nobility... The bulkwart I thing was a gm reward for the first person curing the plague...

Try downloading Vaslin's EQ compendium. It is essentially a document that lists a lot of lore and stuff but also has the usual quest text. Some of lore of the plague may be in there? This guide was basically the wiki of the day, can be found here:
https://web.archive.org/web/20020608...compendium.htm

The Rude / Loathsome individuals definitely were a thing, I have noticed plenty of them in my ClassicQuest travels. I've flagged a bunch in my personal archives, here's a few to read through:
http://www.ttlg.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5734
Quote:
There are new NPC's in Qeynos hills and S. Qeynos. I read this over at the safehouse and had to go check it out myself after I stopped laughing. They NPCs are called a_rude_individual and when hailed they say:

a rude individual makes a rude gesture at Keamas and says, 'Why are you talking to me? People who talk too much can sometimes find themselves without tongues!'

The funny thing is if you hail a NPC and they are in earshot they make a smart comment. A poster on the safehouse said this:

When a bard told me to go to the bards guild and listen to some music the a rude individual told him that if he ever had a original idea it was just beginners luck.
http://www.ttlg.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5784

http://www.ttlg.com/forums/showthread.php?t=5777

The keepers website had a bunch of mentions of the plague as well, I highly doubt it had anything to do with the Sleeper wakening as there are mentions to the individuals prior to that, and it was on all servers.

In my research journey I seem to recall the Karana Plague was a 'long standing event' and had a bunch of mini-events in other zones tied to it. With each of these 'mini-events' there was some GM always of the same name that people tried to kill or chase away that had info on the plague. For example there was a LoIO event where the sky turned red and Faydedar was in the lake. In that event a player actually got to control one of the GM characters and participate in the story (sounds like he was transformed via illusion / temp name change).

In regards to Plane of Disease, from what I read that was the hopes and dreams from players, I had not seen any developer comments about the intention. Bertox is the king of decay who's lore says resides in the Plane of Disease (may have even been called 'Plane of Decay' back then), so people assumed with the plague that it was his doing and would open up the plane much like what happened with Bloody Kithicor events, etc.

That Prime Healer's Bulwark is cool! Hope it gets implemented so all those shrouded monks can be reminded they really don't have BiS [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

I recently made a bug report on the Claw of Veeshan item (bug report here), and it details some events that, I think, may have lead to the opening of the Plane of Sky. It would be really sweet if P99 devs eventually put all these 'Norrath official storyline' GM events in with appropriate rewards / titles on refresh.

Need someone like Kraddok to piece together accurate timeline and script of events and such!

EDIT: Forgot, here is a link to some Lore of events in Norrath. I believe they are official releases from Sony/Verant, they aren't logs from events or anything but more from a roleplay write-up perspective of certain events. I don't think the plague is in there, but take a look.

So I was curious and looked through Vaslin's Compendium... TONS of info on the Plague, apparently this was communicated through the newspapers (will P99 implement these?), will post each here... apparently there is a tradeskill recipe or two in these, not sure if they were strictly during the plague or new trades that lasted after (paging Sorn), the guide doesn't appear to have every issue of the newspapers, but a lot of them:

Freeport Observer:
Issue #2:
 

Hand of Bertoxxulous Reaches across Norath

The plague unleashed across the Karana plains by the Bloodsabres serveral weeks past has finally reached its venomous hand to our portside city. Provisions have been growing steadily scarce due to the lack of neccesary materials to make bread, muffins, and other goods needed by the citizens and travelers alike.

One of our prospering merchants, Innkeep Hunter, has expressed his concern with this shortage of certain products. "Although we still have plenty of rations, the production of our most fine of goods has been harmed due to the plague upon the Karana fields. We have fear that the deman for these foods shall grow greatlty, but our supply will only decrease to an eventual and severe lack in these goods."

*Runnyeye Citadel Reclaimed*'

We have heard rumors from our merchants and tradesmen who frequent the Highpass area that the goblin miners of Runnyeye citadel have overthrown the Evil Eyes that have enslaved them for several years. The goblins have retakend the citadel as their own and appointed a new leader with the execution of their former king, who was beneath the Evil Eyes control.

There is little direct meaning of this event to the citizens of freeport beyond the possiblity of a compromised safety for the merchants who frequent Highpass Keep, as the Pickclaw clan of goblins remain there as members of a free civilization. We merely look back upon the history that led the corruption of Kithicor Wood and the influence the goblins had in that massacre.


Issue #3:
 

Qeynos vs the Bloodsabers

Across Antonica, the plague in the Karanas is known to all. Well it appears that our sister city to the west has pointed an official finger. Qeynos has declared war on the Bloodsabers for their suspected involvement in the plague, but they need help. Well isn't it about time?

The Bloodsabers have long been a scourge upon the land and the powers that be in Qeynos have been taken to task more than once for letting them run rampant in the west. Finally we learn the truth behind the inaction- they simply could not handle the problem. Now that their ineffectual policing has resulted in the start of famile-like conditions affecting all of Norrath, they seem at last spurred into action. With the help of hired "investigators," they are finally beginning to make their way slowly up the ladder of that secret society.

It is this kind of thing that truly makes one appreciate living in Freeport under the watchful eye of the militia. I for one sleep easier at night knowing that such corruption and apathy could never threaten my home or my way of life

Al'Kabor - What trouble is He Causing Now?

Reports are coming in from all around Norrath that famed wizard Al'Kabor has a new project up his mystical sleeve. The question is, what is the fallout going to be this time? As always with the surly spellcaster, the problem is his unwillingness to share information about what he is doing. Last seen chipping away at a Wizard spire in the Dreadlands, we can only assume? does he intend to destroy the spires and use their remains so that only he can teleport around Norrath? is he setting a trap for one of his many unsuspecting enemies? Your guess is as good as mine, but rumors say that a former gnomish apprentice of his has acquired some of his work. Keep your eyes here for more details as they surface.




Rivervale Voice
Issue #1:
 

Blight Upon the Plains
----------------------

The Plains of Karana still bckle under the terrible plague that is effecting the region. A terrible green mist, swarms of insects and wide spread disease are wreaking havoc on the area.

Farmers report withered crops that are nearly unfit for consumption. We are thankful that the terrors unleashed upon the plains of Karana have left us, for the most part, unaffected. Druids are asked to be spread the word to travelers heading for the Plains as many of the animals have become infected with rabies, from the mild and majestic wolf to the fearsome and respectable griffon.

Priests of all kinds are asked to lend their efforts and cure those that become infected to keep the disease from spreading.

Lanys T'yvyl Searchs for Artifact
---------------------------------

Lanys T'yvyl, foul Dark Elf and former chosen of Innoruuk, maintains a small but loyal following in the Teir'Dal community. It has been reported that she has been seeking to gather the pieces of an artifact, once considered cursed by the Teir'Dal.

It is uncertain what she hopes to gain by piecing together this cursed device. We at the Voice believe that this bodes ill not only for we citizens of Rivervale but perhaps the Dark Elven people as well.

High Elven Princess Free
------------------------

Firiona Vie, high Elven princess and daughter of King Tearis Thex of the elves, was returned safely after an extended period of captivity at the hands of the Iksar Danak Dhorentath and his minions. Danak is said to be the leader of a cult and is said to have ties with the hell spawned creature known as danak Dhorenrarh.

We join the people of Faydwer in celebrating this happy occasion.



Issue #2:
 

Upheaval in Runnyeye
------------------------------

The upheaval in Runnyeye Citadel has caused a great deal of panic amongst the citizens of Rivervale. Clan Pickclaw battled its way through the dwellings defeating the inhabitants, the evil eyes and goblin slaves of Xorbb.

Lord Pickclaw personally executed the Goblin King and his minions, and integrated the remaining Runnyeye goblins into his clan. While most were slain in battle, including Borxx, the remaining evil eyes fell back to the Gorge of King Xorbb.

After the battle was won, Lord Pickclaw struck a deal with a strange subterranean race of fungal beings called the Sporali. The Sporali would do mining work for the goblins, and in return, the goblins wouldn't wipe them out.

Apparently, Lord Pickclaw and his followers had been hidden away for several years building up forces.

The Hobie Mullins Tragedy
-------------------------------------

Helping to fight against the plague in the Karanas, our bakers rush to find new recipes each day.

One of our key reporters was met with an untimely death while trying to spread the news of the new recipes.

Hobie Mullins deemed himself an ambassador of baking. While trying to improve the quality of life amongst the ogres and trolls of the swampy lands of Innothule, Hobie was eaten by a ferocious ogre reporter of Da Swamp News after he gave the beast the recipe for Muskie marinade and some journalistic advice.

In memory of Hobie, we have included the recipe that he was trying to share with the world.

Ingredients: Rathe Muskie, Vinegar, Spices, Snake Egg Oil, Fish Wine

Create the marinade by mixing the liquid ingredients. Allow the Muskie to marinade for several hours. Add spices and cook until skin is golden brown and meat appears lightly translucent.

Hobie Mullins
We will miss you!

Qeynos Begins Investigations
________________________

Qeynos has officially begun formal investigations into the group that calls themselves the Bloodsabres. These worshippers of Bertoxxulous are the group responsible for the tragic destruction and devastation perpetrated against creatures great in small that dwell on the once beautiful and bountiful Plains of Karana.

Antonius and the council have given the task of conducting these initial investigations to his advisor and right hand man, Lord Magistrate Vegalys Keldrane. Expecting a large number of arrests in the upcoming weeks, Vegalys Keldrane has asked that any loyal to Qeynos to contact him personally to apply for the postion of official investigator.

We offer our prayers to Karana that the good followers of Rodcet Nife will bring healing to the broken and savaged lands of the once pristine plains. At the least, perhaps we may begin to feel some closure.

Exotic Foods from Afar!

From our friends in Akanon comes another tasty recipe! A favorite of the explorers of the frozen wastes in Velious, this fish recipe is sure to delight and tatalize the palette with it's tangy flavor!'

*Dirty Dirty Dark Elves*

Well friends, apparently the Demons from Neriak were not content to forever taint lovely Kithicor with their hated hate, nope nope nope. Now ugly ol' Lanys herself has taken up home inside of Befallen ( the place with the skeletons, after the forest before Freeport where the humans live you know). What is a halfling that only wants peace and tranquility to do in such proximity to so ugly nasty dirty a race as them? For one thing, do not go near to the Befallen place, not that we can travel our own forest at night anymore, harrumph.

Remember these helpful hints, Halflings of the Vale: eat a hearty meal before leaving your house (never know when you might need the strength). never be afraid to call to a deputy for help (that's what they are there for after all), don't go through the forest at night (can't stress that enough - in fact, once the sun goes down, you might just want to rest), and of course never ever ever accept gifts from a dark elf, no matter how shiny or tasty.

*A Cros to Bear*

You all remember Holly Windstalker? She runs around near Qeynos getting mad at folks that fights with the bears and the wolves and things there. Well, if I were a poacher (not that I am) I would be extra careful for a while because she is not getting any happier soon. Poor Holly lost a dear dear friend long ago. His name was Cros, Cros Treewind.

He was a very good man that helped Holly in her goals of protecting the wildlife. Anyway, he died a while ago. Caught some bad cold from the water or something over in those parts, but now the city thinks they know who did it. Poisoned the water that is.

The folks there seem to be doing what they can to find the peoples responsible, but no luck yet. With this tragedy being in the news again, residents say Holly has been in a terrible mood lately. Anyway, I think we should all pause a moment before supping tonight and remember Cros.



Issue #5:
 

Ding Dong The Witch is Dead
-------------------------------------------

She had brought ruin to everything she touches. She has forever cursed our forest with the unsettled souls of the dead. She is also very, very ugly. And now she is dead. Yippppppeeeeeee!!!!!!

Lanys T'Vyl who needs no further introduction has met with her final end it seems. After a very large battle in the Rathe Mountains, even the damn dirty dark elves had enough of her.

Although I guess not all of feel that way so stay clear of that place now because some of the dark elves have made a cult in memory of the mean old cur. What is important is that she won't be bothering us anymore, hurrah!!

Another Bump in the Road
---------------------------------------

They have been working hard over in Qeynos to cure the plague lingering in the Karanas before these awful famine conditions get any worse (there were reports of families right here in Rivervale only getting four meals yesterday). They have been working on magical means of reprieve and testing on some of the infected animals but some misdirected brigand has made off with the test subjects! To help stem the pangs of hunger, Illia has offered one of her lesser known recipes this week for everyone's enjoyment?

Vegetable Roughy:

1 Red Roughy
1 Vegetables
1 Jug of Oyster Sauces
1 Kelp Garnish



Issue #6:
 

In case there are those of you that have not heard, steer far clear from the Mountains of Rathe. The Dark Elves, in their constant war with themselves, have some splinter group setting up there now (I think it has something to do with the dirty Lanys T'Vyl, but who can keep up with that bunch?).

'tis a good day to be a halfling

The Dark Elves are, as always, at war with each other. The Humans are diseased. The Elves' Champion has run off to Kunark and no one know why. The Dwarves and Gnomes are short. And, Alas, there are we halflings. Look around Rivervale, won't you?

We are eating well and filled with merriment. Find a mirror and remind yourself how lucky you are. Go down to the river with a fresh bowl of Ell's finest, bask in the lazy sunlight and have not a care in the world.

His Crops, They do Grow

Word out of Qeynos is that not all of the Karanas are being affected by the dirty, nasty plague.

In fact it is just one farmer who seems to grow fertile food. What to do, they ask, what to do indeed?

He could just have fortune smiling upon him but there is much fear he works with the plague bringers, poisoning the lands to his own selfish gain.

None know for sure, but the humans have had enough and are sending in Begalys himself to sort it out... no doubt there will be more to say on this very soon.



Issue #7:
 

The temple of Life in Qeynos has found a way to counteract the plague elements in the Karana lands. This is glorius news indeed. I heard that there was some farmer human there and he was growing foods just fine because he buried a wee statue in his dirt. Seems that this no good man helped the no good men who started the trouble to begin with and those bad folks gave this bad farmer the statue as payment. Anyway, the goodly Priests of Life in Qeynos turned that little statue over and over until they figured out what it was about it that fixed the plague. Soon, they will try very hard to make this magic happen all over the Karanas so we can make fresh muffins and breads again. Happy days!

Lorrk the Insane Slain!

In nearby East Karana, one of the worst of the bad evil eyes there, Lorrk the Insane, was recently dispatched by a band of adventurers. I think gypsies sent them to do it, because they brought them back his parts and she gave them an old chest full of magic stuff. Someone even told me that the chest was for Al'Kabor because he was looking to combine some things. Now what that wizard needs with a chest from the gypsies I've nary a guess, but I am sure glad to have one less thing to be worry about when I pass through that place.



The Antonican Times:
Issue #1:
 

Food Prices Rise
-------------------------

Farmers everywhere across the Plains of Karana are reporting heavy crop damage as the plague marches on. Already, citizens of Queynos and residents of Karana are feeling the pinch as the shortage of grain and other produce continue to cause food prices to rise.

A farmer reported that this year's crop almost a complete loss. "There is almost nothing left. What little was left was eaten away by swarms of insects a few days ago. I I don't know what I'm going to do" Fears of widespread famine are spreading across the community.

Officials remain upbeat. Vegalys Keldrane, advisor to King Antonius Bayle, had this to say. "Even in light of the poor harvest this year, fears of famine are unfounded. Our city holds enough rations to last a year or longer. Times may just be a bit tight for a little while"

Koada' Dal Princess Homecoming
---------------------------------------------------

High Elven Princess Firiona Vie was finally delivered safely into the awaiting arms of her father, the King of the elven nation. Onlookers report that the King seemed very pleased to see his daughter again. The king was unavailable for comment.

Priests of Tunare report that Firiona seeks the advice of Tunare Herself on recovering an artifact which she lost during the time of her rescue. She is reportedly working with the priests in Felwithe to accomplish this goal.

Magical Discovery Forthcoming
---------------------------------------------

Al'Kabor has recently reported some progress in his ongoing research. Known as perhapse the most powerful living wizard of our times, Al'Kabor has been gathering ancient Tomes and Manuscripts from ruins and dungeons.

Reports from local Keepers of the Art revealed to The Times that the research will likely result improvements in the field of Teleportation.



Issue #2:
 

Rumors of War Unfounded
=====================

Antonius Bayle issued a statement recently saying that the widespread rumors of war due to the plague unleashed on the Plains of Karana are unfounded. "Though we believe we know the identity of the perpetrators of this terrible crime I must urge all citizens to exercise calm. We are civilized people ruled by law. Thus we must follow the rule of law and not allow ourselves to resort to vigilante justice."

Vegalys Keldrane told The Times that the matter was still under investigation. He assured us that the perpetrators would be brought to justice. He too urged citizens to remain calm.

Food Shortages Cause Merchants Concern
=====================================

A poor harvent and damaged crops are leaving some merchants short on certain baked goods. Karn Tassen, local merchant, had this to say about the food shortage.

"It is hard enough to scrape by and make enough money to pay your taxes in this town. Now with this blasted plague effecting everything, I'm starting to run out of stock. It's a mess I tell you!"

A call has gone out to independent bakers to assist our local merchants and those abroad in keeping their supplies propely stocked. Anyone interested in assisting the community in this time of need should inquire of local members of the Merchants of Qeynos. Those traveling abroad are urged to contact members of the Coalition of Tradefolk.



Issue #3:
 

Investigations Begin: Arrests Expected
---------------------------------------------------------

This week the Council of Qeynos voted for and nearly unanimously approved a resolution to officially begin investigations into the group responsible for unleashing the virulent plague effecting the Plains of Karana and beyond. Kane Bayle was away on business and unable to vote though he is said to have offered his support to the resolution.

Antonius Bayle and council of Qeynos have tasked Vegalys Keldrane with duty of conducting investigations and bringing in suspected members of the bizarre cult for questioning.

"The time has come for us to begin to root out this evil that has been festering in our peaceful community for far too long," Antonius was quoted as saying.

Vegalys Keldrane, in an effort to expedite the process, has put out a call to those loyal to Qeynos and Bayle for assistance in these investigations. "What we need right now are solid, loyal and trustworthy investigators. I urge any that are interested in becoming an investigator to contact me personally."

He also went on to note that preliminary investigations had him a bit shaken.

"The more I learn from my investigators the more I find that these Bloodsabers have stretched their tendrils of influence all throughout our beloved city and lands beyond."

Still in the midst of this crisis, Vegalys remained optimistic. "Though their true numbers remain unknown and may indeed be vast, we are completely committed to removing this threat from our midst once and for all."

When asked about the strategy he would use to accomplish this goal we were told that they already had identified a number of suspected lower ranking members of the cult. He warns the community to expect some arrests in the forthcoming days as these suspects are brought in for questioning.



Issue #4:
 

New Leads on the Group Known as the Bloodsabres!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Investigators have been busy these last weeks apprehending many lower ranking members of these worshippers of the Plague Bringer who tried to overthrow Anotnius Bayle and the Council. The questioning of these individuals resulted in turning up new leads that may lead to several of the higher ranking members of this cult.

Citizens may remember some time ago when these strange events first began, that two of Qeynos's finest patrollers Holly Windstalker and Cros Treewind disappeared without a trace. It had happened that the waters of Surefall Glade were poisoned by these Bloodsabres.

Now, investigators have information that may lead them to the two tottering rump-fed miscreants personally responsible for this tragic deed. Though the druids of Surefall Glade were able to purify their waters once again, it was too late for Holly, cros and several of Surefall's protected animals.

In order to prevent the diseased from spreading, Holly and Cros removed themselves from the area. Unfortunately, Cros Treewind was attacked by one of the sacred animals which was maddened by its sickness. Weak and unable to defend himself, Cros was killed by this defiled grizzly.

Anyone interested in assisting with the investigations or in helping to bring these two paunchy ill-breeding malt-worms to justice should contact the Magistrate Vegalys Keldrane for more information.

On a lighter note, here is a dish that is sure to entertain as well as satisfy!

Priests of Life Bring Hope: Plague to End Soon?
---------------------------------------------------------------------

The Priests of the Temple of Life bring citizens of Qeynos and Karana residents new hope this week as they announce their commitment to finding a way to bring an end to the terrible plague that has caused us so much heartbreak as of late.

One radical idea in development is to use a sort of "anti-disease" enchantment that spreads much in the same way as a disease.

However it does not sicken those that come in contact with it. Rather it leaves them perfectly healthy and disease free. The enchantment is currently imperfect and dissipates too quickly to be of any real use right now.

The followers of Rodcet Nife have put out a call to anyone that has a sharp mind and a head for research for assistance with their tests as tehyh attempt to refine the enchantment. Anyone interested in assisting should contact Velarte Selire for more information.

Al'Kabor Continued Research
-------------------------------------------

Reports have reached the Times that premier Wizard Al'Kabor continues his scientific research. His latest discovery relates to the ability to fuse together several different compounds using a combination of standard alchemical practices and good old fashioned wizardry.

The compound is created from substances not naturally combinable without the use of Al'Kabor's secret process and is incredibly strong. The compound also seems to dramatically increase the flow of magical energty to any who remain in contact with the compound.

Al'Kabor used the compound to construct a Sceptre of incredible power. Apparently, this sceptre was given to an individual who was very helpful in assisting Al'Kabor in his studies. Regardless of this artifact's incredible power, no doubt it is viewed as a mere trinket to the mighty wizard.



Issue #6:
 

Local Farmer Turns: Residents Shocked
-------------------------

A local farmer by the name of Jansen was recently discovered to be siding with those vile followers of Bertoxxulous. Complaints from residents of the Plains came to light when it was found that while most local farmers crops are doing poorly at best, farmer Jansen's crops thrived.

Vegalys Keldrane, with the assistance of several local residents confrounted the farmer. It was found that he did indeed turn to the followers of Bertoxxulous in order to save his family from starvation and himself from ruin.

Magistrate Keldrane retrieved an idol buried in the farmer's field that had an aura of protection upon it that rendered the farmer's fields immune to the plague's effects. The Priests of Life are very excited about this finding, which may result in the final end to this terrible perpetual disaster. The fate of the farmer remains unknown.

Ring Leader Found!
------------------------------

In related news, Azibelle Spavin, the woman personally responsible for unleashing the terrible plague upon the Karanas has been apparently been located.

Vegalys Keldrane has entrusted one of the best investigators and one of Kane Bayle's best guardsmen with the task of hunting her down and bringing her to justice.

Body of Teir'Dal Leader Stolen
---------------------------------------------

From the eastern coast of antonica, our friends in the city of Freeport have brought word that the body of the recently slain leader of a powerful faction of Dark Elves has been stolen.

According to reports, the body of Lanys was being held by those once loyal to her. However, special agents loyal to the King and Neriak were sent in on a special mission to steal the body for reasons unknown.



Issue #7:
 

Priests Find Cure: Plague to End Within Days!
-------------------------------------------------------------------

Velarte Selire, priest of Rodcet Nife, claims that with the tremendous outpouring of support for their research they have finally found a way to bring an end to the plague which has been troubling us all for so long.

Ironically enough, the solution to the problem about how to end the plague was found within an idol made by the followers of the Plaguebringer himself. In our last issue, we reported on a local area man, who had turned down the dark path and made a pact with the Bloodsabers.

In return for his loyalty, the farmer Jansen was given an idol and told to bury it in his fields. His crops flourished. After being discovered, the idol was confiscated and turned over to the Temple of Life.

Velarte Selire told the Times that they were able to purify the magical aura imbued into the unholy idol and remove all traces of the Plaguebringer's influence. The priests were then able to modify the magical aura using their current anti-disease research so that the effect is dramaticallly more itense and powerful.

When we last spoke with the Priests of Life, they were constructing a number of braziers which were to be imbued with this new purifying aura. The braziers will be filled with a special incense and a massive "smudging" ceremony will take place. The smoke produced will then react violently against the impure elements in the Plains of Karan, eradicating the plague.

Some citizens expressed grave concern that the idea was untested and the effects of such powerful release of magic are unknown. However Velarte has assured us that though the sheer force of the magical energy to be released will be tremendous and perhaps frightening to some, he assures us that it is harmless and indeed beneficial to all living beings, plant and animal alike.




The Dark Truth:
 

Runnyeye Citadel 'Liberated'
From the Clutches of
King Xorbb
*********************

Reports of a battle within the Citadel of Runnyeye have been intercepted from messengers across Highpass Keep and the Karana Plains. These reports have given word that the goblins have gathered enough gall and feral distaste for the Evil Eyes that have held them as slaves and miners within the Gorge of King Xorbb to cause a successful uprising.

It has also been confirmed that the former King of these goblin slaves has been executed by the leader of the rebellion who then took command of his abase subjects and the keep. King Xorbb, however, remains alive and a possibility of a counter strike from him remains.

The Plaguebringer's Blight
*****************************

The kingdom of Qeynos felt the venomous touch of the Plaguebringer's hand several weeks past, but only now is this successful act of the Bloodsabres reaching the four corners of Odus.

Good Eva, the baker of our darkened fair city, has reported that supplies obtained from the fields of Karana are few and those that rely on the bounty of those fields are now suffering as a result. The citizens of Paineel shall, unfortunately, feel the touch of the Bloodsabres' success in bringing about the power of their divine lord, a success that we may find reason to give retaliation toward if our own city suffers at any greater length.

The Odus Chronicles
Issue #?:
 

A calm to the storm
---------------------------------

Antonious Bayle IV made a reassuring announcement to his people of the Qeynos Kingdom, quelling any unfounded rumors that a war between the follower of The Plaguebringer and those who would wish to restore health to the soil of their kingdom. The benevolent king made promise to his people that he would not bring them to a war that would cause any innocent lives to be lost and that all propaganda and coercing of the vengeance hungry citizens toward such an act should cease immediately.

We give a great bow of respect to the sovereign king in his stern yet appeasing act of maintaining peace in a time of turmoil.

The Search for the Lost
--------------------------------

Several months past, one of our admired and esteemed citizens, Aderius Rhenar, disappeared while upon a routine visit to Toxxulia for purposes of research. Leraena Shelyrak, Mistress of the Peace Keepers, has expressed great distress at knowing her prime student has been abducted and has made plea to the council to find him, or his remains.

The primary suspects in this abduction were always either the Kerran or the Heretics, but recent evidence has pointed to the kobolds of Odus. We have received information that Aderius is being held captive within the Warrens for reasons unknown, but it has been assured that he is still alive.

Despite our desires to see this priest freed from the kobold's clutches, the location of the Warrens and our enemies that reside within Paineel have given us proper reasoning to give merely our prayers to The Tranquil for the safety of the abducted




Tinker's News and World Report
Issue #2:
 

Goblin Home LIberated
--------------------------------

In an effort to bing you news both above and below the surface of Norrath, we have received a report of a quiet war that broke out between the goblins known as the "Pickclaws" and those of "Clan Runnyeye". A goblin calling himself Lord Pickclaw apparently lead the rebellion.

The Runnyeye clan and the Pickclaws split when a monsterous Evil Eye by the name of Xorbb used his terrible powers of the mind to enslave, coerce and otherwise muck-around-with the goblins, eventually taking over Runnyeye Citadel.

Many escaped during this time and relocated under the Serpent Spine mountains. They have been a thorn in the side of the humans of High Keep ever since. They called themselves the Pickclaws due to their interests in mining.

Lord Pickclaw and his army rolled easily over the goblins of Runnyeye Citadel and he personally executed the former Goblin King and even, it is said, the Evil Eye known as Borxx. It was also reported that this "Lord Pickclaw" struck a deal with a race of fungus creatures called the sporali, whereby Lord Pickclaw would agree not to kill them in return for their mining ore for him.'

------------------------------
Stones Completed:
Ritual to Commence
-----------------------------

Yeolarn Bronzeleaf, Priest of Tunare, has reported that he has completed the creation of the stones required by princess Firiona Vie. The stones will be used in a ritual whereby the princess will attempt to summon the power of Tunare to seek guidance for the recovery of the artifact staff, known as The Lifeguide, that was given to her by The Mother of All.




The Royal Herald
Issue #2:
 

That Which is Sacred
------------------------------

Several days past, our princess and divine Champion, Firiona Vie, made a plea to our High Priest of Tunare for the creation of the four sacred stones of nature. The elves of Tunare have had little need for these stones since our migration from Tunaria, but The Priests of Tunare have kept such rituals sacred and within the archives of documented rituals.

Abiding most graciously to Firiona's request, Yeolarn Bronzeleaf set immediately to work on the four-day ritual that would produce the stones requested. The days have passed and the stones have been completed. Now we wait patiently and with the greatest of hope that Tunare's Champion shall be successful in her need for these sacred stones.

Thirst for Vengeance Quelled
----------------------------------------

The people of Qeynos have cried out for blood and the rumors of war have glided through the Karana air as a bitter, screeching horn played by the inept.

Anotonious Bayle IV, ruler of Qeynos and the karana Plains, has called for an immediate silence to the painful rumors of blood and battle.

The young, zealous ruler demanded that all remain in peace and that he will do all within his power to see that war does not come to his kingdom so long as he ramains upon the throne. The people have since given to their sovereign's just rule and returned to their daily routines.





So there you have it, more info on the plague than could fill your wildest dreams!

Kraddok, I hereby command you to create a video summarizing all this delicious lore...

The following is ripped from the rude individual ZAM page,

Quote:
They were removed from the game after the timed event ended. This was a quick event which was part of the Plague in the Karanas event from back in the day. I still have screens of it, back when the Karanas were Green in color (yes the sky was green).

Here is a segment I stole from Banegrivms MASSIVE Everquest Lore archive, called the Codex of War. This guy REALLY knows his lore, and works now for Brad McQuaid on EQ-RPG. (Writes the stuff!)
---------------------------
The Coming of the Plaguebringer (GM Event via Patches)
I still remember that day as if it has been yesterday. I had heard the tells of some rude individuals that had appeared outside the gates of Qeynos and near the square harassing passers by. Of course I did not think much of it, save those I helped to defend.

But no less then a few week later was when their camps grew and these rude individuals now became replaced by ones much more Loathsome to behold. These Loathsome individuals spread their camps out into the hills of Qeynos, where they awaited and continued with their dark rites. Within their midst could be found those of the profession of rogues, priests, wizards, and warriors.

The wizards carried in their possession unknown runes and a strange tome of research. The priests would occasionally be found to carry a weapon called a Runed Branding Iron.

Within the hands of the warriors were found strange swords that seemed as if to denote rank. The blades in order were Initiate's Blade, Adept's Blade, and Befouled Longsword.

Thieves from these camps were said to have been spotted by the locals sneaking into the Temple of Life within the shadow of night to steal the scrolls from within.

The keeper of the Lion's Mane Tavern, Earron Huntlan, wrote to Antonius Bayle complaining of these individuals. Eventually, he sent the Magistrate, Vegalys Keldrane, to investigate the matter. Vegalys sought proof that these now Loathsome Individuals were up to no good and began to summon the aid of many adventurers.

It was then that Al'Kabor discovered a strange diary page, and determined the symbol on the page to be part of an incantation to summon Bertoxxulous himself. An ancient rite long past from Dartain and the heretics that had founded old Paineel, which now lays consumed within the darkness of The Hole. Similar pages were found laying around Qeynos and Qeynos Hills.

Azibelle Spavin the witch of Qeynos, was reported to meet with shady characters and whisper conversations in the Lion's Mane Tavern. Tylman Lushfeld, a bard in love with Azibelle, would sit in the bar during the day, pining for Azibelle. She would show up at night.

There are some that say in hushed whispers that long ago Azibelle Spavin stood at a crossroads and sold her soul to the Plaguebringer on a dark and stormy night, when lost souls peered about from the world beyond.

Bandit runners carrying pieces of Marble and Enchanted Clay, and some strange paint were discovered in and around Qeynos as well. Some of these were Gnolls. They occasionally were found to carry a Brooch of Sw'Vaye (proof of allegiance to Rykonis Sw'Vaye, who Antonius Bayle had banished from Qeynos) from amidst their possessions.

The scroll thief (who spawned every night at 11pm game time), carried a scroll, which could be turned into Athrin Tashir in the Tavern, who in turn gave a reward in the semblance of a ring (and XP as well).

The pages found from the ground (the primary numbered ones) combined with the right rune (from the loathsomes) in the new research book (also from the loathsomes) returned an incantation (3 different types). These could be turned into Vegalys Keldrane at the wall atop the gate of Qeynos, as proof of the misdoings of these Loathsome Individuals. Adventurers were rewarded with a random piece of Rubicite armor (no breastplate).

The Runed Branding Irons could be turned in as well to the local Magistrate; same reward.

After about two weeks, the Loathsome Individuals fled, along with the Thief and all other related individuals. It was then announced that their leader, Mordavin Telase, had been captured.

The Trial of Mordavin Telase then came to pass. It was revealed that he intended on unleashing a plague on the entire Kingdom of Qeynos (Qeynos, Karana Plains, and Surefall Glade) that would slay all those who dwelled within the Kingdom's borders. (GM Event)

The Scrolls were being stolen to research a Rune which would protect the Bloodsabres and their allied from the coming plague. That rune was found to match the rune on the Runed Branding Iron. The incantations were discovered to be part of an ancient rite to summon Bertoxxulous himself. Only three of the four parts of the incantation were ever found. Woe and despair be to the bringer of the fourth rune that would doom us all to pestilence and decay.

Telase and the Bloodsabres had been building a Temple to Bertoxxulous in the Qeynos sewers. Hence the paint, marble, and clay. The workload proved too much for him, so he enlisted the help of Rykonis Sw'Vaye. Rykonis Sw'Vaye in turn hired the gnolls to help in the tasks at hand.

Mordavin managed to escape at his trial, and the hunt was on. He was eventually found in the western Karanas heading towards an encampment of sorts. He was apprehended by a band of adventurers and imprisoned within the dungeons of Qeynos. (GM Event)

The Trial of Mordavin Telase (from the EverQuest website) (found at: http://www.1stfistoflight.com/~fol/p...avintelase.htm )
An account of the trial, by a witness of the court.

Now, I am curious about this Banegrivm individual and his so called Codex of War. Searches reveal many references-- in the early 2000's-- to the compendium, but I am unable to find the original source.

edit: here we have it, the Codex of War

jesus christ rygar get a room.
This post is not a flame, search the forums on the topic.
---------------
The plague event will end at the next patch. The staff have Confirmed this 100%. I strongly suggest if you're honestly interested in the event to explore it right now and not wait. It's been over a year so I imagine time is running out.
There is a very unique GM Event item that should be/will be rewarded to 1 lucky ranger/shm/cleric at the end of the event.

We do already have many quests from this event currently implemented on P99 right now. At this point any additional findings will have to be added for Magenta server.
