Rumor was he'd departed the material plane around the time the Wayfarer's Brotherhood started to make a name for themselves.In other words: Fluff around the Mistmoore Catacombs in LDON was that Mayong had abandonded them and moved on to bigger and better things.

<DIV>500 years ago, Mayong was last reported to be lurking in the Plane of Underfoot. He had no interest in the affairs of mortals, but was actively persuing his path to power.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I've not played EQ1 for over a month now, but there was a story occuring at the time that involved Firiona Vie and Al'Kabor. Them, along with Mayong, were very popular charecters the players wanted to see return. Who knows..</DIV>

<DIV>The story from the NPC in Willow Woods, on the tale of the War of the Fay, states that some of the Dark Elf survivers, from the invasion of the dwarves and the gnomes, made their way to the Loping Planes to join the followers of Mayong Mistmoore. It also says they were the unforetunate ones. It does not say whether Mayong was present or not, in fact it doesn't say much about what they found, other than the unforetunate bit.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>There was a quote by Moorgard about prominent figures in EQ1, such as Firiona Vie. He said that EQ2 would not be borrowing EQ1s main names, as they have enough of their own. I would think that maybe Mayong is included in that, but we shall see in future EQ2 days.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Bryyn Holifeet, templar of Mr Fizzlethorpe (AB server)</DIV>

<DIV>I think he ment that pertained mostly to EQ1 iconic characters like Firiona and the others in that group.  Big baddies like Mistmoore i think are exempt... after all, we still have Naggy, Vox, Fippy and other greats of that era.</DIV>

Well, Naggy & Vox are sorta immortal, like any dragon. Fippy's long dead, we've got his great great great grandson.Mayong was never an actual NPC. From the time EQ started he was GM spawned and GM controlled. When the GMs started to reduce that kind of direct influence on the game he just sorta faded away. Then LDON explained that he had left Norrath to finally go and challenge the gods.

<DIV>i believe he was an npc, but was taken out because of pathing issues in mistmoore.  pretty sure whenever someone zoned in he'd run to the entrance with a chain of mobs and attack.</DIV>

<DIV>Well the sleeper has already awoken and flown off to find Veeshan.  If MM did burrow deeper into the underfoot, then it is quite possible that we might catch a glimpse of him or some lore about him in the upcomming action pack about Neriak.</DIV>

Mayong was indeed in Mistmoore Castle at one point early on in EQ, but as it was mentioned above pathing issues caused him to be pulled out. There were ways of aggroing him through the wall at the top of the ramp at zone in, which pulled ALL of the mobs to the zone in short order. That was a fun deathtrap of a zone...I miss those days.

Mayong was indeed in the game for a couple of months after launch, but was removed for the reasons above. A decision was then made to make him a GM character from then on out for storyline purposes.As to the tale of Mayong and Veeshan's claw, that is also true. It was part of the series of GM run events that lead up to the launch of Scars of Velious.

<DIV>Actually, I believe Mayong was partly responsible for the imprisonment of the Sleeper.  Him and his followers/creations are on opposite faction tables with the Ring of Scale (in the old days it was only Vox and Naggy...then grew to the Kunark dragons).  And isn't it interesting, Mayong was a dark elven bard...and we can finally make dark elven bards.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>My favorite GM event, and the reason I had a dark elven warrior as my main, was where MM came out and asked for help to thwart some servants of the dragons and recover some artifact.  The reward was <A href="http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/item.html?item=335" target=_blank>Crystal Claw of Veeshan</A>, and a vial of his blood.  Once drank, the players diety was changed to Mayong Mistmoore and his magic resistance raised substantially.</DIV>

<DIV>Long long long ago Mayong Mistmoor was an NPC in MM. Due to agro and pathing issues in the zone he was removed and became a GM launched character.

<DIV>This is interesting. <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> Mayong Mistmoore was added very late into EQOA on PS2 which I played. (500 years before EQ1) he was a quest spawn, and you would basically go through a series of events till you could go and spawn him. (I forget where he was, was around the time I quit EQOA)</DIV>

Yes, I fought Mayong once before I got sucked into the time portal.He was in the Siloth's Salt mines where almost no one could find him. I went to kill him after finding out about him from the gypsys. Unfortunatly, he had wisdom of many ages past, so I had to retreat before I met my fate. -Mordock

<DIV>Mayong Mistmoore was a NPC in Mistmoore castle but was removed at the very begining of live/end of beta due to pathing bugs back in 1999. His NPC image was that used by maestro of Rancor in plane of Hate (hope I spelled that right). I remember the various shouts in zone about he coming with a train. Someone else pointed out this to me back in the old boards when I asked the same thing. I think what I was told was the he was removed at the end of beta. He later became GM controlled for various events, kunark being one of the major ones for him.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV>

<DIV>If I'm correct, Hate was not in the game at release (therefor there wasn't a Maestro model to change) whereas that screenshot of Mistmoore is not of the old, regular NPC but rather of one of the GM event ones in which he's just a Dark Elf lookin' dude.</DIV>

<div></div><div></div><div>Mayong was originally a dark elf bard.  It was a very long time ago that anyone has ever battled with him in eq1 since he was removed a many months after release.  The only thing I remember about him was he dropped at least 1 item that was a chest piece.  I cant even remember what it was but I want to say it was plate or chain and fairly easy for people to farm when he was actually up and yo were 50ish.  He was a long spawn time.  I want to say 24 hours.  Everyone says he was removed due to pathing but I dont recall that myself.  At any rate removing him didnt stop the trains since the pathing in that place was never really fixed properly.  It was one of my favorite places though.  Mayong was a hit from the start and very popular despite his zone having some of the worst pathing since the original Plane of Hate =).  I havent played eq1 in a very long time and dont recall much of his lore after being removed form the game except he was used in event(s) by GM's.  One last thing.  His model was not the one posted on allahkazam.  That one is in fact the Gm controlled Mayong.  Like I said, its been so long but I want to say he was pale, i think hunched over like the vampyres in his castle.  I dont recall him having a unique model which makes sense because no named mobs had unique models at release except the gods they actually had done like Innoruuk.  I remember seeing his model at some dev thing in game at the end of beta.  He was huge.  Look at all the named mobs at release.  From najena, guk, sol b, etc all those named were standard models with different names.  Why would Mayong have been different.  Dont think it was until Plane of Fear released that we saw more unique models for named such as Cazic and Dracoliche.  Anyways, my input on Mayong.  Love these threads.</div><div> </div><div>Edit: Hate was not in at release.  It was released on Halloween not quite a year later.  There was a nice GM event in Kithicor that night and that zone would be forever changed.  Which was a good thing since the zone was almost totally unused as it was and waste of space.</div><p>Message Edited by Tarkin-Wretched on <span class="date_text">03-21-2006</span><span class="time_text">05:02 PM</span></p>

Mayong Mistmoor was actually a wizard class mob in EQ1. He was a caster and had a wicked knockback. He was a GM cotrolled mob during encounters and he'd constantly ridicule the raid or group who were trying to kill him. He was removed because something about him would cause most of the zone to aggro. After the bug was found to be <i>him</i> and GMs stopped being so interactive in EQLive, he was removed from the game. When most of the original Verent devs left after SoV, Mayong sort of dropped off the map until LDoN came out and they made veiled comments about Mayong being away doing "important things".In EQ1 he's back in the game and now's been elevated to demi-god, possibly full godhood upon his "death" after a raid encounter. He basically claims that by taking the time to get to him and kill him, you aknowledge his power and position and basically were the "final straw" for him to become a god. He thanks you and goes off on his evil way. He has a plane of his own too: The Demi-plane of Blood. This all takes place after the "Time split" so I don't know if it translates over to EQ2 or not.<div></div>

Generally I think the rule of thumb tends to be "Don't Necro unless you can add new insight/new information to the thread." So bouncing a thread to the top with what amounts ot a glorified "BUMP" message will get it locked down, but adding new information (that may not have been around when the thread died) can help it live.The exception to this though is that you shouldn't necro threads that have obsolete, outdated or wrong information in them; let those ones die and start a new thread if you have new information about the subject.<div></div>

The situation is probably a little different here on the Lore board than on the rest of the boards because here we can discover new facts and make new connections to old otherwise dead topics, and it can be worthwhile to resurrect them to see how the old discussion went and add to it.On the other hand, necroing a year old thread on say the Tradeskill board where someone was talking about harvesting issues back then is worth a lock, since the issue should be finished by then, and if there are new issues, they should get a new thread.  All IMO of course. (and now this thread should probably be chopped due to off topicness more than anything. <img src="/smilies/69934afc394145350659cd7add244ca9.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> )<div></div>

"As someone who never did play eq1 I really enjoy reading the posts about the Lore from eq1 and seeing how it does/can relate to eq2"That holds for me as well!IMHO this game would be barely average if it wasn't for the deep lore and history....Back to topic...With vampires making appearances in expansions and adventure packs(geez remember those) I have a feeling we will run into Mayong before too long.<div></div>

As for the necrothread thing, the mods urge people to use the search function and to NOT create many posts on the same topic, that's probably what someone did here and I think it could be a good thing. The bumping the old thread stuff I think is more of a problem when someone just goes bump and dosen't add any new information. As long as something meaningful is added to the thread I think it's alright, but this thread probably will be locked know b/c it was seriously derailed by complaining about posting on an old topic <img src="/smilies/9d71f0541cff0a302a0309c5079e8dee.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />As for Mayong, I would LOVE to see him, he was always one of my favorite characters in all of EQ lore. Probably b/c of the enar mythical reputation he had earned himself in the game. Personally I really hope that Mistmoore castle is still intact on Faydwer, I doubt Mayong would be at home, but we can hope can't we? I don't think what occured recentely in EQ in regards to Mayong's ascendance will be inlcuded in EQ2's lore simply b/c as far as we know we are on the alternate timeline. And that's alright with me, even though the story is pretty neat simply b/c (in my mind) he's more likely to still be "alive" and creeping around Norrath somewhere. Maybe he went home to his castle, or maybe he decided to visit Tsernia in her tower, or maybe he's in or around the 2nd or 3rd gate of Neriak lurking about. Who knows, I just really hope he's still around and makes an appearance.<p>Message Edited by teddyboy420 on <span class="date_text">03-24-2006</span><span class="time_text">02:31 PM</span></p>

Yeah that's from the Everquest Companion book.According to the book, Sir Lucan deBoterlere was Tony Garcia's PnP character and Mayong Mistmoor was Bill Trost's PnP character.<div></div>

Nice Mayong pics Zanther.<span>:smileyhappy:Sadly the way the EQ1/EQ2 story-line/time-lime works, any expansions released for EQ1 after Planes of Power are not directly relevant to the EQ2 universe as a hard rule. Some events covered within the post-PoP expansions might be a part of the alternate EQ2 universe, but it's not a definite thing.I'm not going to speak for Crusahorn's curt response to you, but the Darkhollow lore is cool, but it might have absolutely nothing to do with what happened in EQ2's past. Mayong might be in a EQ2 version of the Demi-plane of Blood, but then again, he might not.</span><div></div>

We all know that Depths of Darkhollow was released LONG AFTER EQ2 started, and Mayong doesn't exist in that form since it never happened. I mean seriously. All you posted was a link to his character in EQlive without saying anything else. What are we suppose to expect?

Old Mayong Info:Back when I played EQ1 I was always very very interested in some odd lore that seemed to be peppered around, nothing ever seemed to come of it though at least not that I coudl find.1) At one point in time Mayong was "involved" with Tserina (the boss of that shadow tower thing in Velious)2) It was never clear to me if she became a vamp because of him or with him.3) A "gift" Tserina made for Mayong is what broke them apart4) We all know that Mayong has a long hatred of Dragons, right? Well the "gift" was a harnessed soul of a dragon, and in fact the in game lore in eq1 (though not commonly known) was that the "Harnessed Soul Gem" that Tserina dropped as loot sometimes was in fact the soul of the Dracolich in the Plane of Fear. I'm a bit hazy on some of this since it was more than a few years back, but I "think" that the story was that Tserina offered a gift of the Harnessed Dragon's soul that could be used to control the Darcolich to Mayong as a gift. However Mayong hates dragons and saw this all as an abombination.. and basically split. Tserina kept the gem, but somehow the Dracolich ended up in the Plane of Fear as a servant of Cazic.There was a rumor at one point that if you had the soul gem from Tserina and went to fear, and you could get faction with the Dracolich you could "give him his soul back" for a great reward.. but no one knew how to get faction with him.So just some very odd bits of lore about Mayong and his love life <img src="/smilies/b2eb59423fbf5fa39342041237025880.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /><div></div>
