SOE Fan Faire 2007===
Fan Faire has been abuzz wondering what new game John "Smed" Smedley will be announcing today. This just in: it's called Legends of Norrath.
Legends of Norrath is an MMO card and strategy game built into EverQuest and EverQuest II. The cards incorporate familiar lore and mobs from both games. The client will be integrated into both games with plans for a standalone client at a later date.
All registered EverQuest and EverQuest II players will receive a starter deck for free at launch. The game is free: starter decks of cards will be purchasable for a one-time cost of about $10; booster packs will be available for around $3. The initial deck will have 375 cards. The client will allow you to trade cards with other players from both EverQuest and EverQuest II and incorporates a full tournament system and card store. The Legends of Norrath may be played between players from both games with a seamless client integrated into the game.
Besides offering in-game entertainment for those long camps, cards and card packs will be available as mob drops in both games. They will be incorporated into the existing loot tables in such a manner as to be accessible to all players. Very rare cards will drop which will include a /claim code, allowing the redeeming player to acquire an in-game item that we are told will not be just fluff, but a useful, desirable item.
And, as the coup de grace, every Fan Faire attendee will receive automatic Beta access, with a random starter deck, two booster packs, and two additional booster packs a week. All beta testers will keep their cards when the game goes live.
Gameplay is described as a beatum up combat strategy game. Tomorrow Fan Faire attendees will be given an opportunity to play the game.
Watch http://www.legendsofnorrath.com for more information; the site should go live next week.
