Anniversary events tend to run from mid-March to mid-April (sometimes to mid-May) each year. They are not available during the "off season".

For an overview and list of EverQuest Anniversary events, see this quest entry.



This is a solo task introduced with EverQuest's 13th anniversary. It's expected to only be available during anniversary season (mid-March through mid-April).

It begins with Sam Napth, a Halfling in the Plane of Knowledge at about -215, -90, -155 (next to the Soulbinder).

You say, 'Hail, Sam Napth'

Sam Napth says 'I've been expecting you. I have great need of adventurers to help me deal with an important issue. There are a lot of tasks that need doing, I'd be grateful if you could help me out. You see, I've been trying to prove to some important people that such things are foolishness. So I've arranged some tests to prove it.'

A task window pops up offering several anniversary tasks.

You have been assigned the task 'The Lady of Elks'.

Sam Napth wishes for you to enter a haunted house and seek out a mysterious apparition that, according to myth, will grant you an audience with the dead if you pass her test.



Speak to Sam Napth 0/1 (Plane of Knowledge)

You say, 'Hail, Sam Napth'

Sam Napth says 'I bet you enjoy skulking around spooky old houses looking for deadly ghosts, correct? How would you like to investigate a [myth] for me?'

You say, 'What myth?'

Sam Napth says 'This is an interesting myth that I came across a while back during my travels. The myth says that if you dare utter a certain name into a mirror at midnight, an apparition will appear. If you do as she asks, she will put you in contact with one who has died and let you speak to them for a short while. I am hoping this is true. If you are able to look into this for me, I will [send] you to the house where the mirror resides so you can check this out further. If you are able to summon this apparition and survive, I want you to speak with my long deceased master.'

You say, 'Send me'

Sam Napth says 'Excellent. I await your return.'

LOADING, PLEASE WAIT...
You have entered House of Thule

Kill some shambling ushers to anger the Master of the House and make him appear 0/10 (House of Thule)

Skeletons called "a shambling usher" are found in various parts of the zone: Some on the main floor; some in the basement. The mob density in the instanced zone is quite low and mobs hit for quite low (max ~1,500).

Upon killing the last one, you see:

The Master of the House has appeared somewhere in the house!

Learn the true name of Lady of Elks by obtaining the Master's diary from the Master of the House 0/1 (House of Thule)

This is a skeleton found in the bottom golem room in the very back of the basement. He has about 100k hitpoints and hits for a max ~1,500. It drops "The Master's Diary".

You have slain The Master of the House!
The Master of the House's corpse falls into a pile of bones.

--You have looted a The Master's Diary.--

Find the Lady of Elks' mirror 0/1 (House of Thule)

This is found in Korlof's room on the first floor.

Speak the Lady of Elks' true name three times into the mirror 0/1 (House of Thule)

You say, 'Salbia'

You say, 'Salbia'

You say, 'Salbia'

The Lady of Elks speaks to you, 'Tell me what departed soul you wish to speak with.'

Speak into the mirror and let it be known that you wish to speak with Sam Napth's master 0/1 (House of Thule)

You say, 'I wish to speak with Sam's Master'

The Lady of Elks speaks to you, 'Very well. I shall grant you your wish.' A ghostly message echoes in your head, 'You call me in the name of Sam Napth? You stand here facing the very image of death and suffering, afraid to turn your head, afraid to leave, and call me on behalf of that name? Promise to me that you will assist me if I call for you, and I shall banish this apparition so that you can leave this place alive. All you must do is give me your word and you may leave. Can you make this [promise to assist] me?'

Make the promise 0/1 (House of Thule)

You say, 'I promise'

The Lady of Elks has departed.

LOADING, PLEASE WAIT...
You have entered The Plane of Knowledge.

Tell Sam of your success 0/1 (House of Thule)

You say, 'Hail, Sam Napth'

Sam Napth says 'You have spoken with my master? Excellent work, my friend.'

Actuually, its not leaving the room that does it -- if you turn around in place and look at the Lady Velks (spawns behind you), that will also DT you. So, if you turn to far left or right, you die.

"Speak the Lady of Elks' true name three times into the mirror" (From the diary: Salbia)

"Speak into the mirror and let it be known that you wish to speak with Sam Napth's master" (say "I wish to speak with Sam Napth's master")

"Make the promise" (say "I promise")

talk to the bony butler (right where you zoned in) say "word" to get out

Solo is not so bad

Don't let the lack of merc or player assistance worry you. All the mobs have low HP, low DPS and a small agro range. You can avoid the lost servants completely and only kill the mobs you need to for the quest.
