Getting Prepared for Fan Faire 2009


We're getting closer and closer to Fan Faire... Are you ready? You don't need to start throwing things in your suitcase yet, but it's a good idea to start planning. We've got some advice and tips on stuff to do ahead of time and things you might want to bring with you. (Take it from us. We've done this a few times!)

Please Identify Yourself

Of course you'll need ID for traveling, but it's a good idea to keep it on you at all times at Fan Faire, tucked safely away. You'll need it for checking in to your hotel, procuring adult beverages and gambling if you so choose, as well as for picking up your Fan Faire registration packet. Some of our larger events also require ID and your conference badge for entry, especially our 21+ events.

Another good idea, if you're planning to do any networking or you're meeting up with in-game friends, is to bring business cards. If you're meeting guildmates for dinner or before a panel, you'll probably need to exchange cell phone numbers, and business cards are a handy way to be prepared. (If you don't have business cards, you can always make some yourself and print at home!)

What Did They Say?

Of course we're all going to Fan Faire to have fun, but we're also exchanging a lot of information. Maybe you run a fansite or a gaming blog. Or maybe you're just there to represent your guild and get the latest scoop. Either way, there's a good chance you will be the designated "Information Bearer" for your guild and friends. Attendees are welcome to bring cameras, camcorders and audio recorders to the panels and events. Or if you prefer the good old fashioned way, notepads and pencils are also welcome. (Just be sure to avoid taking your recording devices into the casinos, as that's a sure fire way to draw security aggro!)

Fun and Games!

If you plan to enter the EQ or EQII tournaments, make sure you keep an eye on the EQ Players and EQII Players websites for more information and instructions on prepping for those events, if needed. Details will be coming as we draw closer to the event.

The Community Team is hooked on the Free Realms Trading Card Game! We're bringing some booster packs with us, so bring your decks and any cards you want to trade, and maybe you'll go home with some new stuff!

We'll also be having late-night gaming sessions. Although you won't really need to bring anything for these, do remember to have your Station ID and password handy if you want to log in to play on our computers.

For the truly adventurous types, we will once again be hosting Live Quests for EverQuest, EverQuest II, Vanguard and Star Wars Galaxies! We provide the adventure and gear -- just bring yourself and any teammates you'd like to play with. (Teams are usually limited to 10 people.)

Travel

If you'll be traveling by air, be sure to familiarize yourself with the latest TSA regulations. As of May 15th, they're really cracking down on ticketed names exactly matching your identification, in order to reduce security delays. Also, if you plan on bringing any foods, liquid/gel personal items (shampoos, toothpaste, and even medications) you'll want to know the rules for carry-ons and checked bags.

Speaking of checked bags, your airline might charge an additional fee to check baggage so it's a good idea to look into that ahead of time (you might even be able to pre-pay). And don't forget things like wearing shoes that are easy to remove in the security line, keeping your ID handy to show while you're checking in and going through security, and making sure all your gadgets are charged up so you don't get stuck looking for something to do at the gate.

More Tips

Over at Zam, Calthine has prepared a very helpful list of some things to remember when you prepare for Fan Faire. She has some great tips, and probably some you wouldn't have even thought of, so be sure to give it a quick read before you pack. (Thanks, Calthine!) Our EQII community shared even more advice...like where the closest drugstore is!

If you have any additional tips you'd like to share, hop on over to the Fan Faire forum and leave your advice in the Fan Faire Tips thread.

We'll see you in Vegas, baby!

We Have a New Senior Producer for EverQuest II!


You know, the most awkward part of writing one of these is the introduction; it almost always comes across as cliché.

So, now that we have that out of the way…

I am extremely pleased to join the creative and passionate EQII team as the Senior Producer. Bruce has always been wonderful to work with and leaves me some rather large shoes to fill (speaking of clichés; they are actually about the same size as my own). Bruce has been a strong shepherd for the team and the game and we all wish him well as he moves into his new role here at SOE. I know he will do well, as he carries the dedication he shows in all things with him.

As far as Community Relations, I am leaving the team in very capable hands. Richard “Greeblen” Schmelter will be giving that team the love they need now, and I know he will shine. Why the change for me? Well, first you should understand that it is not as different a career as you might think. A producer is a manager, just like a director. So, many of the skills are the same. Just different processes, more people, more assets. More, more, more. And of course, now I have these large looming deadlines. What was I thinking? I love games, especially MMO’s. EQ was my first love and brought me to SOE, but it was EQII that held me longer than any other. I love the game and when the opportunity arose to work with this team, I could not pass it up.

This team is amazing! I have spent the last two days in meetings as they talk about their work and their passion for this product; I am excited, as I could not be blessed with a better group to help me make this transition into Production. Coders, Designers and Artists are all working very hard to make sure EQII stays the quality game it is today. Over the next few weeks you will see some of their plans come to fruition as we publish Monument and Might (GU 52) to Test and then Live servers sometime in June (possibly before Fan Faire).

But that ain’t all we have in store for you. As we sat together and went over the plans for GU 53 and beyond, the player in me was piqued. I wanted this new stuff NOW. I wanted to play with the new zones, items, and dungeons. I smiled and laughed as I saw new creatures and their animations (complete with sound effects provided by Tom Tobey, one of our Senior Artists), and I know that you will love them too.

We also have some not so much fun stuff to get to, maintenance to the game to allow us to continue to develop content, expansions, and items for years to come. Some of those pills will be tough to swallow (cliché). The team and I will work hard to make certain you understand why we’re making these changes, why they are necessary. We will discuss them with you and listen to your feedback. While that doesn’t mean we can always go the way some players feel is correct, it does mean we want you to know the WHY of our decisions. I used the word “shepherd” for Bruce and it is fitting, as that is what a producer does. They make sure the game is headed in the right direction, away from cliffs and pitfalls so that it stays around, competitive, and most importantly fun, for a good long time.

I will be available on the forums occasionally, on Twitter often (handle is Brenlo) and in game when I can log in to chat with you. I look forward to hearing from you. I look forward to playing with you. I look forward to being a shepherd for this game and development team. Leading them, shaping their plans and guiding their passion. A passion you, I and the team share.

See you in Norrath.

Alan "Brenlo" Crosby

It is time for a new generation of Ethernauts to retrace the steps of their honored predecessors through the ruined, unforgiving and twisting regions of Norrath to rid the world of the invading scourge and destroy the renewed evil of the Shadowmen.

Feature Set: - More than 20 new zones, including the new overland zone, Innothule. - Experience nostalgic EverQuest dungeon themes, such as Najena, Mistmoore and The Sebilisian Empire, and adventure through more than 18 goal-based dungeons, such as Ruins of Guk and Befallen. - The Achievement Point level cap will be increased to 200 to offer new achievements for class-specific lines. - A new Dungeon Delving mission system for players to replay content with new and different experiences. - Five (5) new Heritage Quests with unique rewards being added. - A new, mysterious group of erudites with powerful new armor and equipment will barter for void shards earned during your encounters. - Epic tales of the odyssey are told through battles with dozens of new creatures and hundreds of new quests. - Two new deities have been introduced into Norrath, Rodcet Nife and Anashti Sul. - Includes Desert of FlamesTM, Kingdom of SkyTM, Echoes of FaydwerTM and Rise of KunarkTM expansion packs, and The Bloodline ChroniclesTM, The Splitpaw SagaTM and The Fallen DynastyTM adventure packs. - Also includes Legends of NorrathTM strategic online trading card game, digital starter deck and booster pack.

Current Player Recruitment Rewards: Active paying EQII subscribers receive one month of free EQII gameplay time (to be added at the end of their then-current subscription) per new account invitee (up to a limit of 20 friends) who converts to a paying EQII subscription within 30 days of the conclusion of that friend's trial period.

New Recruits: All participants can access the EverQuest®II Rise of Kunark™ all-in-one digital game client and various bonus in-game items during the promotional period and keep a complimentary digital copy upon conversion to a monthly subscription plan. Upon completion of free play period, when the new player converts to paying monthly subscription they will receive a US$5.00 discount (or local currency equivalent) off of the next expansion(scheduled for release in Fall 2008) if purchased through SOE’s Station Store by December 21, 2008.
