Sometime after the release of Kunark. Didn't own a computer that didn't crash every 5-30 minutes while playing EverQuest until early Luclin.

Winter of '99/00, pretty sure it was after Christmas, but I'm not positive, certain it was a month or two prior to Kunark, so I'm guessing Jan/Feb of 2000. I can vividly recall relentlessly dieing to lag spikes while using the Kelethin lifts, so much so that I said the hell with it and learned the run to Felwithe to bank.

well I played a little bit in late fall of 1999 ( if I recall around Dec. of 1999 ) with a friends account off and on till fall of 2001 but I did not play regular untill I got my own account Dec. 2002 when PoP was fairly new...

so I have fond roots in bolth OEM verant EQ and SOE EQ.. to me EQ did not start declining bad till LDoN... that expation gave me a bad taiste that will never get wrinsed out.. there was a small gimmer of hope when GoD was released... but buy the time they released titanum client I was done with LIVE.. to me the perfect server would be 100% recreation of live just befor LDoN... IE... after then fixxed most of the buggs in LoY expantion..

Sad thing is it was EQemu that got me to get back on in 2002... and I played live and dabbled with EQemu till I had enough of SoE and the expantion pack mill in summer 2005 and played fully on EQemu... and yes I had my little WoW spert off and on from 2005 to 2009 but I stopped giving blizzard any time when they desided to fallow the ways of SoE and destroy OEM content.. now EQemu has had my full attention since dec of 2009...

when I was on live I mostly played on MithMarr, FV, and drainal (sorry I cant remeber how it was spelled I left that server in 2004 ) and main stayed in MM and FV..

my toons was Daanlia SHM, Yanaduno ENC, Sheennaa BST, Tinna WAR, Wanasbik MAG, Fagar RANG, and Ninander CLR

heh I though this would be a good place to tell a little about me...


P.S. sorry I know my spelling and grammer is horrid but I dont care.. it does not meant I am not smart just not what I consider inportant... sorry forum trolls.. but you will not gent under my skin

August 1999 My first 5 minutes went like this: Created a Wood Elf, took a few steps forward and , "LOADING, PLEASE WAIT." The gamma was turned down on my video card settings, so I didn't realize that I was standing like 5 steps from the edge of a platform. [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

EverQuest had just came out, my brother bought a copy of the game and let me play on his account. This was in may of 1999, I was 12 years old. I quit Live servers several years later after the Planes of Power fan faire in 2004. SONY unveiled EQ2 there, I wanted to vomit after getting to play a test run. I came home finished PoTime with my guild, then the whole entire server just died, People went to WoW and EQ2. EverQuest had become so far from what I had remembered it as I lost interest. 3 years later, I played some on Shards of dalaya, until I found P1999 last month. Now I've reunited with my favorite game, Everquest. Thank you P1999 staff/developers for making this happen. -Jeff
