Firiona Vie, NPC, Everquest. She is literally the MMORPG poster child. Even gamers who have never stepped foot into a virtual world know this is “the Everquest chick.” If there is a single iconic representation of MMORPG’s, she’s it. She’s also a great example of how evil never attacks your midriff, arms, legs, head, or cleavage.
Call me a bit odd, I dont even know who Firiona Vie is, or that there ever was an MMORPG 'poster child'.
EverQuest doesn't get the same level of promotion that it used to, so while longtime MMO players will know Firiona Vie, if you're relatively new to the market/genre, you won't have seen her nearly as much.
Well, Firiona Vie was in the front of every of the first 4 or 5 boxed EverQuest releases (game + expansions) so many came to simply relate her to EQ as the main character and off course, until WoW, EQ WAS the definition of MMO so that naturally lead people to see her as the icon of MMOs.
Well, ive been in the genre for a long time, just that ive been living under a rock for a long time. I was with a small-time MMO (Darkspace) For over 6-7 years before I finally decided to move on to other MMOs.
