The Chessboard – Then and Now

The next in the comparison series.  Usually I try to get both places at the same time of day, but I always think of the EverQuest chessboard with that eerie glow it has at night in Butcherblock. 

EverQuest:

You can see the big chair in the first EQ2 shot.  That seems to get a mention whenever anybody talks about the chessboard in Echoes of Faydwer.

I am also experimenting with a different way to host files.  WordPress.com now allow you to buy more space on your site, up to 10GB, so I want to see how locally stored, versus ImageShack.com hosted, files perform.
