Beta Posy A Tale of Magic
  • Everquest Express Issue #63
  • Everquest: The Official Player's Guide
This story by "Oghma" was originally published on the Everquest fan website, Everquest Express in Issue #63 which was published the week of February 27 - March 5, 1998. EQ Express was run by Alan "Absor" Vancouvering who has worked on the Everquest team since Velious. You can still find it in its original form on the Internet Archive at https://web.archive.org/web/19981202162549/http://www.eqx.simplenet.com:80/ .
Beta The First Ogre - Dwarven War Distributed during Beta An account that takes place in the midst of The War of the Broken Crown where Dagnor the Butcher, 5th warlord descendant of Rakthok the Warlord, leading an Ogre Rakthokian army across the Hills of Shade to attack Kaladim, King Grimmly Ironforge (12th Dwarven King) defending, the Orcan betrayal, the destruction of the Ogre city of Rakthok, and the Grimmly's spear shattering in Dagnor's chest at the lake south of the Lesser Faydark which gave name to Dagnor's Cauldron and The Battle of the Shattered Spear. This account describes the defeated Ogres retreating and plundering the ruins of the elven city of Caerthiel, fleeing across the Loping Plains, and taking ships from Faydwer to Antonica to found a new kingdom near the Serpent's Spine mountains called Oggok, which is Ogre for "Revenge".
Beta The Founding of Ak'Anon Distributed during Beta The gnomes, formerly slaves of the Dark Elves, take refuge on elven lands surrounding Elizerain Lake, but a gnome named Biddyn asks the elvish emperor Carandril with Edril's support, for a separate gnomish Kingdom. They are granted land beyond the steamfont mountains which is renamed "Akanon" - elven for "Gift". Edril answers the emperor's call to slay a plague dragon that killed the initial gnomish expedition into the new lands and oversees the initial construction of the Gnomish Kingdom.
Beta The Founding of Crushbone Distributed during Beta An account of the Orcs splitting into three clans following the Orcan betrayal of the Rakthokian army, Gharol leading his Crushbone orcs eastward into elven lands and establishing Crushbone near The Greater Faydark. This account describes "the great burning", Carandril requesting aide from Felwithe, and Edril's "Legion of the Wind" swiftly defeating the Orcish encampments and driving them deep into the wild Greater Faydark where they eventually established Crushbone. Gharol was later killed by his own followers.
Beta The Story of Edril Distributed during Beta Detailing the adventures of the Elven warrior, Edril on Antonica after Emperor Carandril's death, his marriage to the Erudite mage Almaril, his research and quest into Kunark to find Trakanon, Trakanon's Prophecy, and his funeral and burial in the depths of Elizerain Lake.
Beta The Troll Migration Distributed during Beta Details Trakanon's saving and then abandonment of the Troll race, the internal wars that whittled 25 tribes down to 7 and then eventually 2 tribes, Chief Nalikor's defeat of Chief Kateera at the Field of Bone and uniting of remaining trolls, and his quest to speak to Trakanon. Trakanon speaks with him and gifts him with a flaming sword. Chief Nalikor eventually leads the trolls in 5 great ships to Antonica - landing on Broken Skull Rock in the Gulf of Gunthak.
Beta The War of the Broken Crown Distributed during Beta An account of how the empire of the elves divided into Dark Elves, High Elves, and Wood Elves. This lore describes what is now Freeport as a former elven outpost on Antonica named "Wielle". It describes Innoruuk as originally being the god of all elves, Dark Elves as the loyalists, High Elves as the rebels, and Wood Elves as the formerly known "wild elves". This account states that the High Elves destroyed the former elven capital of Caerthiel in what is now the Loping Plains. They established Felwithe on the very spot where a wild elf had assassinated the elven emperor in his tent. It further describes how the Dark Elves fled Antonica to establish Neriak and reorganize. Contributor's Note: This account of Innoruuk being the god of all elves and High Elves as the rebel/power-hungry aggressors doesn't seem to match the common narrative.
