  • Burned Woods

    Some few remnants of the grognard EQ community may remember the old "Burned Woods" gag.

    Apparently it's alive and roaming the halls of SOE-San Diego as their April Fool's Day patch message reads in part:

    *** Zones ***

    - Fixed the door that leads into Sverag, Stronghold of Rage.
    - Burned Woods has been moved. We'll leave it up to you to find out where it went.
    - Halflings have been kicked out of Rivervale. Their new home is in Runnyeye... yeah, that's where it is.
    I'll leave it to someone else to describe their 'new character model.' I guess here it would be called 'poopy' hehehe.

      Well, I don't know about the old Fools Day patch notes, but I did find this gem of a story.

      I suspect that the Burned Woods thing may be immortalized on the Station's forums, but they are down for maintenance until 11 am, PDT.

          The fun part is, this isn't a website gag, I grabbed this off of the EQ Patcher:

              And a larger image, one of the character select screen. Yes, those models are carried into the gameworld as well.

                        They changed the EQ2 models as well, everyone has a balloon head.

                          Meanwhile, WoW's 4/1 "joke/not-a-joke" seems to be backfiring a bit.

                            Board rankings were similarly updated (to various school grades.

                              Um... they put "laboratory" in the zones section, and I strongly suspect they meant "lavatory." Who ever heard of camping stalls in a lab?

                              And someone who commented on SoW being nerfed due to "no running in the halls" is under the impression that all schools are indoors. Nearly every school I ever attended was open air. Probably because it doesn't snow here.
