EverQuest Next Fiction
Blog from Steve “Moorgard” Danuser, Lead Content Designer
Since the reveal of EverQuest Next at SOE Live last year, we’ve been working with some very talented authors to bring the new story of Norrath to life through novellas and short stories. Set during the Dragon War, these tales have featured compelling characters such as Keramore Thex and Coralen Larkos, two prominent figures in both the history and future of EverQuest Next.
Our stories have featured or alluded to a number of other characters—ones every bit as important as Keramore and Coralen—who haven’t yet enjoyed the same amount of time in the spotlight. We wanted to use this Round Table Poll to ask which of these characters have resonated most. Who intrigues you? Who do you want to know more about? The poll suggests several prominent names, but feel free to suggest others by posting in this thread.
This is a very exciting time for the EQN fiction library, as we’ll soon be exploring other events on the timeline, some earlier in history and others closer to the age in which the game is set. We have a wealth of new characters and stories to share with you, but we also want to make sure to spend time with familiar characters you’ve come to care about.
If you’ve enjoyed our EverQuest Next fiction so far, we think you’ll be really excited by the stories to come. And if you haven’t delved into the fiction yet, this is a great time to jump in and enjoy some excellent novellas and short stories. Be sure to let us know what you think!
