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 an anniversary quest available only during anniversary season (a few weeks during March and April). It was introduced in 2009 as part of EverQuest's 10th anniversary.

This is one of 16 deity quests. For an overview of how rewards work and how these quests are linked with one another, see this writeup.

Below here are the details for this particular quest.



Fizzlethorpe Bristlebane`s Image wanders the Plane of Knowledge near the Soulbinder.

You say, 'Hail, Fizzlethorpe Bristlebane`s Image'

Fizzlethorpe Bristlebane`s Image says 'Hello there! You might know me. Then again, you might not. No matter to me, really. I just wanted to invite you to a [party]!'

You say, 'A party?'

Fizzlethorpe Bristlebane`s Image says 'It seems to me that lately you folks here on Norrath have gotten a bit too stressed out. You've been slaying dragons for a decade, it's time to relax! So I've set up some firework shows for you. Of course with any good party plans, you really should expect to go to several places to get the most out of it. So do you want to enjoy a good show? Are you up to the challenge? A party [challenge]!'

You say, 'I'll take the challenge'

Fizzlethorpe Bristlebane`s Image says 'Well then, good luck! Most of all have fun!'

You have been assigned the task 'Bristlebane's Party Favor - Bristlebane's Favor'.

Bristlebane wants you to visit the firework shows all over Norrath. They happen only at one place at a time, so you have to keep moving!

Bristlebane told you that he's having a party and has challenged you to participate. All over Norrath, and likely a few other places, there are firework shows to enjoy. All he has asked is that you find those fireworks and enjoy them. But the fireworks show only happens in one place at a time, so you'll have to keep moving. Bristlebane assured you that nothing bad would happen to you...

All he has asked is that you find those fireworks and enjoy them. But the fireworks show only happens in one place at a time, so you'll have to keep moving. Bristlebane assured you that nothing bad would happen to you...

You hear a laugh in your mind. Bristlebane has noticed your attendance at his party.

Fizzlethorpe Bristlebane`s Image says 'See ya!'

IF YOU HAIL BRISTLEBANE'S IMAGE AFTERWARDS:

You say, 'Hail, Fizzlethorpe Bristlebane`s Image'

Bristlebane says, 'I hope you enjoyed the show! I bet you thought I was going to trick you and do something funny to you when you got to each of my shows. So when you got to the fireworks you were probably worried that something bad was going to happen! Well, some tricks are more subtle than a pie in the face.'

Per below:

Zoning in from PoK book, head south following the road, and go around the curve. Right there at that Guard Building, loc will be about +1167, -322, BPM will continue following the road, stopping just in eye shot of the next guard tower where the road goes from being diagonal to straight south, loc where he stops for a few seconds and turns around is +205, -211.

This is correct. The -1607, -327 location shown as confirmed is NOT correct.

As of April 21, 2021 (After the long maintenance patch) on the Bristlebane server the formula is accurate. No need to add or subtract. Note: The Party Machine appears approximately 45mins after the hour Real Time.

On Tunare this year the formula is -4

Also noticed over the last few years that the Party Machine does not enter the zone at the top of the hour. He enters at 15 after, like 8:15, 1:15, 4:15 and so on. So don't be discouraged if you don't see him right away.

Bristlebain Party Machine spawn in front of SS then heads right and heads to the mushroom

Hi.

On AB this year the formula is:

type "/up in pok" then:
day*24 + hour then divide by 20.
Take remainder (decimal value) * 20 - 9

That number is the zone number he is in. And Steamfont counts as "zone 0" so make sure to take that into account.

For this year the equation on Tunare stops at the fraction x 20. No need to -3 or - 9 after that


/up
05:21:30:07 (take the 5 which is days x 24 which is hours in a day) = 120
Add those to the other hours listed (21) + 21
Equals 141

Now 141 divided by 20 (the 20 is how many zones it will go thru) = 7.05

Drop the whole number (7) and just use the fraction .05 which
you will multiply by 20 (.05 x 20) = 1

He would be in zone # 1 or Steamfront Mtns and he paths along the edge of the mountain wall starting near the jewelry merchants in SE corner not SW.

Type /up in pok.

Day times 24, plus hour, divide by 20. Take decimal times 20, minus 9. Remainder corresponds to the zone the BBPM is in.

Example:
/up
12:23:00:00 (d/h/m/s)
12x24=288
288+23=311
311/20=15.55
.55x20=11
11-9=2

2 Is the second zone in the quest entry.

The exact equation changes each year, this post is no longer valid, I'll post an updated equation soon.

The 4-3=1 bit is due to the fact that the original final step, the decimal, corresponded to a whole number indicating the current zone, numbered 1-16. Each year the up time per zone changes (and I also think the initial zone it spawns in is changed), so the additional step takes this error into account. I'm sure there's a more elegant equation, but this frog has a small brain and his math isn't the best either.

Also, I'm not sure but I think it also varies from server to server.

Original credit goes to Sonicmurphy.

This is correct. Adding a bit more information, as I was confused until I found and followed BPM in Butcherblock.

Zoning in from PoK book, head south following the road, and go around the curve. Right there at that Guard Building, loc will be about +1167, -322, BPM will continue following the road, stopping just in eye shot of the next guard tower where the road goes from being diagonal to straight south, loc where he stops for a few seconds and turns around is +205, -211.
