Chronoportals Are Back! Mar 20-28th

From the EQ2 Forums:

From 12:01 a.m. Tuesday, March 20th, through 11:59 p.m. Wednesday, March 28th, log in to EQII and take part in a look back at Norrathian days of yore.

Cportals

The EQII Team has created this fun event as an homage to EverQuest in honor of the anniversary of the EverQuest franchise, and although the lore doesn’t exactly fit the current story of EQII, they decided to make it extra enjoyable for those who were around for the first iteration of Norrath. Adventurers who take part in this journey through time will find some silly nods to EQ and moments of nostalgia as we reminisce about our heritage.

    How does it not fit the current lore? Probably explaining this would be a long article, I guess, but even so, I’d love to hear it.

    I never played EQ1, but I’m really interested in the lore in EQ2. I thought they were trying really hard to get the timelines straight.

    Actually, they’ve already said that EQ2 is kind of like an “Alternate Reality” Norrath, having similar (and in many instances the same) origins and stories, but it would have been just too difficult to keep both games, running concurrently, to keep the exact same lore (especially since the players in EQ1 can effect the lore . . . Search Google for Kerafym the sleeper for an example of that).

    It wouldn’t be fair to force EQ1 players to have to follow a specific path just to coincide with the beginnings of EQ2 (no one there would be happy if Luclin actually blows up . . . all those Bazaar bots would be gone).

    Speaking of which, does anyone have better math skills than I? Since EQ2 started November 8, 2004, and it was set 500 years ahead of EQ1, and given one game day is 90 minutes “real time”, at what point will EQ1 actually catch up to the starting year of EQ2 (if they haven’t done so already)?

    Well at 90 min per day by game time, 5840 game days would elapse in 1 year.
    So 16 years of game days ticks by every Earth year.
    It would take 31.25 Earth years for EQ1 to catch up to the start of EQ2.

    Just a hunch but the way the tools that are currently driving the game it will nver happen.
