EverQuest Anniversary and Timeline

To celebrate the EverQuest 9th anniversary, Clint Worley, the EverQuest producer, has posted a graphic over on the EQ Dev blog of the EverQuest timeline that includes many of the major events in the history of EverQuest and includes the box artwork for all of the EverQuest expansions.

Happy Anniversary to EverQuest! 

Has it really been 9 years since I brought that first box home?

Addendum: Timeline picture here since SOE killed their blog.

A Nine Year Timeline for EQ
