<DIV>Dark crimson robes...</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>It's good to see that the Robe of the Lost Circle is still in good use among the monks.</DIV>

Thats great for monks who want some more lore on the clan's history. What I am interested in is our old friend <a href="http://eqbeastiary.allakhazam.com/search.shtml?id=12552" target="_blank">Zebuxoruk</a>. How did he manage to escape the Plane of Time and end up on this isle? Surely the gods knew we would eventually discover this location.</span></font></div><p>Message Edited by TheManInTheBox on <span class=date_text>05-28-2006</span> <span class=time_text>12:17 PM</span>

<P>Fallen Dynasty is up for free beta use on the test server, so I was able to start the quests there and find some new lore.</P> <P><IMG src="http://img349.imageshack.us/img349/7962/ingrid9fe.jpg"></P> <P><IMG src="http://img349.imageshack.us/img349/3705/whistlingfist15cx.jpg"></P>

<DIV>That's just what I want to see. That story describes the events that happen as part of the Robe of the Whistling Fists quest in EQlive, which itself was needed for the monk epic, the Celestial Fists.</DIV>

<P>And here's more.</P> <P><IMG src="http://img515.imageshack.us/img515/4742/whistlingfist28fs.jpg"></P> <P><IMG src="http://img508.imageshack.us/img508/7206/dhar11xx.jpg"></P><p>Message Edited by Astralmage on <span class=date_text>05-29-2006</span> <span class=time_text>04:15 AM</span>

<DIV>Ok. Astralmage. Was it REALLY necissary to just spoil EVERYTHING from Fallen Dynasty about it's lore before it was even released?</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I'm not complaining but all those posts with the book pages are nothing but unwanted spam in my oppinion.</DIV>

<P>I would actually like to thank you, Astral.  Do to my financial situation, I have chosen to not own a credit card.  I play EQ2 (and played EQ) by use of game cards, and do not have the ability to buy the adv packs, because of this.  I truly appreciate the sharing of this lore.</P> <P>Also, this lore is in the tomes she's collected, there is still lore to be found about Zeb by completed the adv pack, do don't worry, Cusa, there's still plenty for you to discover.</P>

Since the lore of any given expansion/adventure pack has previously flooded onto the History and Lore boards within <EM>days</EM> of going live, I didn't think it would matter if I posted the lore I found on Test before the AP went live. If I hadn't posted material that people yet to play the AP could potentially see, someone else would have. However, if it bothers people, I'll mark whatever I post with a spoiler notice in future.

<DIV>You'd think after reading a page or two, a person could figure out they were reading in-game books that shed some light on the lore of the adventure pack... /shrug</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Actually, I don't mind at all if Astral posts it... interesting read, and gives me some info beforehand... since I'm too lazy to start up a character in the open beta :smileyvery-happy:</DIV>

06-02-2006, 06:57 PM
<P>I don't think the lore that was posted really spoils much. If you played EQ1 as a monk and at least started your epic, much of this you should already know.  There are some specifics here, but it only confirms what many of us already pieced together.</P> <P>The lost island of Zebuxoruk was in the original EQ1 lore and this only creates a tie.</P> <P>Thank you for the post!  I would like to see more.</P>

<P>Found this enemy mob whilst exploring in the Forsaken City, who suggest that the zone is the ruins of old Tanaan.</P> <P><IMG src="http://img310.imageshack.us/img310/7613/tanaanite0td.jpg"></P>

Thanks for posting those Astral, keep them coming. <img src="/smilies/283a16da79f3aa23fe1025c96295f04f.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />Anyone who doesn't want the lore spoiled would be stupid to read the screenshots since it's obvious what they are.<div></div>

You could have simply not read the posts...

<DIV>Second chapter of Fallen Dynasty lore is up. After reading it, I'm more inclined to say that Zhen Mei is Zebuxoruk than Zan Fi.</DIV>

Not having played EQLive, I cannot say I am very familiar with the lore.  However I too agree from my reading of the second chapter that Zhen Mei is Zebuxoruk.  Additionally, there is the mention of corruption and shadows which lead me to believe that we will see more of the shadowed men. <div></div>
