With the release of the latest EverQuest expansion, Call of the Forsaken, I felt just a tinge of anxiety. One of the new zones listed for the expansion was West Karana.
I wondered if SOE might have tinkered with one of the most iconic zones in my history with the game.
So I had to patch up and log in to check. Of course, it was night time. That made for better atmosphere, but worse screen shots.
There were a couple of new guys at the entrance to the zone, working a bonfire or conducting a book burning or some such.
But otherwise the zone appeared to be still intact and as I remembered it. Angular terrain, horrible textures, towers and buildings lit with that warm glow, bandits camping, scarecrows prancing, beetles clacking, and beasts wandering.
West Karana is still safe tonight, which seems surprisingly important to me at the moment.
