The Tale of Lanys T`Vyl

If there's one thing that seems to add ambiance to Everquest, it's the rich lore that surrounds the game.  With every expanion, the story grows.  Quests revolve around the game lore, even the character races weave into the fabric of the game's story. 

Tonight, while sitting in POK, I saw the following message from GM/Guide Oldurn. It's been a while since I attended one of these story events, and back in the day when I was a Guide (yes, I admit it..) I loved to participate and run quest events for the players.  So, of course, intrigued, I decided to attend and listen to the story below.  Since we're in a slow week here, I thought I'd share it here for anyone who cares to enjoy...

[Thu Apr 14 22:05:26 2016] Oldurn murmurs, Those who delve into knowledge and lore, I have a story to weave upon your ears, meet me near the Large bank in PoK  to hear my tale.

[Thu Apr 14 22:07:19 2016] Oldurn waves at Aaikan.

EQ Update #28 2016

Soulfire.

Having never played a paladin (yet) in Everquest, it is easy to miss some of the unique flavor the devs put into the game. Clearly a great deal of care was put into crafting the quest chain that is Soulfire. Thanks to user Death Templars significant input, I was able to massively update the faction impact of this quest. Reading the write up, put together thanks to past users, it made me really want to do the quest... to the point that I might even consider doing it on a non-paladin (true trophy hunting when you do it for an item your character can't even equip). Maybe this finally compels me to play a Paladin...

So a very belated /salute to the dev team from way back that implemented what is one of the most lore-drenched quests in the game.

Who's got a Soulfire? When was the last time you punished some Innoruuk worshippers or undead with it?

Especially with newer content, it is key that you say which version of an NPC you are updating drops for. Since the devs like putting multiple versions of the same named in the instance versions (Bhaly Adan is in several of the variations of Plane of Health for example) posting under the main zone "This NPC dropped item X" isn't enough info.
