Omens of War Complete on Fippy Darkpaw

I try to keep up with what is going on with the Fippy Darkpaw Time Locked Progression server.  I am trying to record major events just to keep some sort of record.  This is made difficult by the fact that I am not currently subscribed to EverQuest.  So I try to keep track by following the forums.  It is actually lucky for me that there have been issues with almost every expansion opening up, since that means that people post about it in the forums.

But I tend to miss other things, since the official SOE Progression Server Timeline has been broken since mid-March of this year.  That was my past source of information on things such as content completion.

Once in a while I catch a break though.  For example, over at the Fippy Darkpaw web site, an alternative forum dedicated to the server, they were good enough to announce that the Omens of War content gating the next unlock had been completed.

Wedneday, September 12 marked the defeat of Overlord Mata Muram, starting the clockdown timer for the Dragons of Norrath vote. Grats go to Citizen on this unlock, their first since server launch last February. Nicely done!

Now, if my math is correct, we’re due to see the DoN vote go live Sunday, November 11th. The vote needs to be up for seven days before it’s tallied, and will be tallied the following Monday, meaning the earliest unlock for DoN will happen early Monday morning, November 19th.

In the meantime, enjoy Omens of War!

So there it is, the Omens of War expansion was done in less than two days.  The expansion was supposed to unlock early on September 10th, but there was an issue which delayed it until later in the day. I guess the content wasn’t as hard this time around.

Quick Omens Indeed

As noted in the quote, the next expansion, Dragons of Norrath, looks to be on track for a mid-November unlock, should the voting go favorably.

And that leaves my list of Fippy Darkpaw server events as follows:

  • Classic EverQuest competed, February 24, 2011
  • Ruins of Kunark unlocked, June 6, 2011

    Just curious (and maybe I missed it in a previous post), what’s the interest in following it if you’re not playing? Just nostalgia?

    @tms – Certainly nostalgia and general interest in EverQuest are drivers. SOE is doing something cool that other companies haven’t done, and I think people ought to know about it.

    I also played on the server for the first couple of months. There is a series of posts here about it. But the great PSN/SOE hacking and shut down kind of killed our momentum.

    But I am also interested in having the progress of the progression server documented because when they announced Fippy Darkpaw, I went to go find information on the old ones, The Sleeper and The Combine, and couldn’t find anything like a timeline or such.

    So I am making my own.

    It won’t be as good as it might have been had I joined one of the raiding guilds and stayed at level cap and such. But it is better than nothing.
