With the news that Eric “Piestro” Cleaver (current EverQuest Community Manager and, for a brief time, Community Manager for EQ2) is leaving SOE, there has been a shuffling of responsibilities. Margaret “Luperza” Krohn (community manager for Planetside 2) will be swapping with Tony “RadarX“ who has been EQ2′s community manager since last August.
From the EQ2 Forums:
Today I put aside my guns and purple lumifiber armor, picked up a sword and dagger, and grabbed my Journeyman’s Cloak! I think this means I am ready for questing, great PvP battles and raid bosses much larger than me. Right? Okay…Probably not, but I do have a new title that I am proud to wear – EverQuest 2 Community Manager.
Some of you may know me from past Fan Faires and SOE Lives, or from a variety of other places on the internet. I’m an avid gamer, streamer, anime and comic fanatic, and lover of esports, cute creatures and other things (yes, that says “other things” – deal with it).
SOE Origin Story
I’ve been working in the game industry for over six years now. I’ve helped launch three titles for SOE as a Game Designer. For the past year, I have been working on the SOE Community Team on PlanetSide 2 which has taught me so much about the intricacies of building, maintaining and being part of a community. I’m on an ever quest to create and cultivate better gaming communities and I hope you will all play a great part in that mission!
EQ2 and Me
As far as EverQuest 2 goes, I have been an avid EverQuest 2 player since way before I ever worked at SOE! I’m a bit of an alt-a-holic and I enjoy multi-boxing my whole group. Call me anti-social, but I call it efficient! I currently have a level 95 Defiler, Shadowknight, Dirge, Coercer, Inquisitor, Wizard and Paladin. I’ll be making a new public character that I hope to play with all of you!
So any guilds looking for a deadly Dirge with mad skills?
Blogs, Streams, Videos and Social Fun
Along with my normal communication duties, such as the EverQuest 2 Website, Forums, Facebook, Twitter and Google+, I’ll be consistently updating my EverQuest 2 wikia blog as soon as I figure out how that formatting works. Hehe. =D I’m planning to use this blog to let you know about my adventures in Norrath and what’s going on behind the scenes here at SOE. If you have any other ideas, feel free to send them my way!
Also, I’ll be doing some fun streams either on my own channel or an official EverQuest 2 channel TBD, as well as some new EQ2 YouTube videos! I’d love to know what kind of content you’d be interested in seeing or being a part of.
What of RadarX?
You can catch RadarX’s adventures over on Auraxis in PlanetSide 2!
Now, I shall read all your lovely posts in response! (Right there will only be lovely ones?! =])
Cheers to many adventures and memories together,
Margaret “Luperza” Krohn
EverQuest 2 Community Manager
