Just saw an interview on ESPN with Boston Redsox pitcher Curt Schilling. He was wearing the Everquest II baseball cap. He said in the interview he is going on the Disabled List for a few weeks due to an injury. I think he wants the time off just to grind his Provisioner to level 34 so he make T4 food/drinks and start making some Major League money. Who knew? Molari-Gnome,31 Provisioner,13 Bard..Toxx <div></div>

hehe, that's kinda neat. With a salary like his, he will pwn the exchange server. <img src="/smilies/69934afc394145350659cd7add244ca9.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> <div></div>

<P>He HAS to play.  When he was playing with Arizona, he wore his Everquest 1 hat in one or two interviews.  I bet if he made the hat upgrade, he made the game upgrade too.</P> <P>Forget unlocking the Frogloks; mad mad mad props to the player who figures out who Curt Schilling's characters are!</P> <P> </P> <P><EM>Yes I realize you can't unlock the Frogloks, at least, not until LU 8.  I'm just saying this would be just as glorious a find.  To the limited few gamers who know what Curt Schilling, or baseball, is.</EM></P>

<P>Better yet, what class do you think he would play....</P> <P>My guess would be Paladin.... and that has nothing to do with that being my class, just my honest opinion.</P> <DIV>He is very religious IRL, and he dosn't seem llike the type of person that wants to shy away from a fight.</DIV>

Yeah I would go with a monk as well.  I read an interview he gave back during EQ1's hayday and he said that he played a monk.

<DIV>Yes, Curt is a longtime EQ player.  In fact he actually played Ultima online beforer EQ, and pencil/paper D+D before that.   When he signed with my beloved Red Sox in November of 2003 I was excited to find out he was also a EQ player.  If I wasn't so lazy I'd try to find and link the interview he did with Allakhazam a few years back, or the interview he did with G4/Tech TV at some game convention when he first tried out EQ2.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Oh, and since you are all wondering, he played a Monk as his main and a Dwarven Cleric as his alt in EQ1.  I don't think he has said what he is playing in EQ2.</DIV>

Heather Graham plays too doesnt she? At least from her interview she seemed to imply she loved the game after doing the voice for Antonia and tries to get some Eqing in when she cam (lol outside filming for any movies she is in and now Scrubs) <img src="/smilies/69934afc394145350659cd7add244ca9.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> <div></div>

<div></div>If Curt is reading this forum because he does play EQ2 then I just wanna pop in a thank you for the 2004 season.  I'm not a hardcore baseball fan but I did start watching the games like I was one from game 4 of the alcs on, and I laughed, cheered and cried along with the rest of New England.  Curt if yer out there thanks to you and the team for giving Sox fans something they only dreamed about, and thank you for doing it with an injured ankle I think that touched me and probably everyone the most.  Heh happy raiding Curt, (you should get Damon playing, he could be the long-haird wild Barbarian Berzerker) Anyhoo back to waiting for the servers to be back up. PS. Best of luck to the team in the '05 season as well! <div></div><p>Message Edited by Ravenfeather75 on <span class=date_text>05-04-2005</span> <span class=time_text>09:24 AM</span>

<P>Hate to break it to you all, but baseball players are normal people too, they just play a game and get paid lots of money and are famous. otherwise whats so different? They are humans too people, come one!</P> <P>The way some are talking, if a famous person plays a game its an anomoly. GUARANTEED more then 75% of famous people play video games and im betting you prolly spoke to many of them without even knowing it (its better off that way trust me)</P>

There is another article in the forums here that specifies what server he plays on and which guild. Its a pretty worthless post about how one guild got extra tries at unlocking the frogs cause they have a baseball player and a gm in there guild. But if you read it you will see what server, what guild, and what his toon name is. unless we got more red sox baseball players named curt Schilling? <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> Then its safe to say its him. <div></div>

I know when I was unable to play a sport due to injury it was a lot more difficult than actually being in the game (hockey and football. I didn't play baseball after elementary school). Then again, he gets to play EQII while he is injured, so that's always a plus. <img src="/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></span><div></div>

That's more than cold.  Boston Red Sox fans will never forget what Curt Schilling did and sacrificed for their team.  As a life long Red Sox fan all I can say is even if he never pitched again (perish the thought) he would be worth every penny of what the Red Sox have and will pay him.  For once in professional sports, it is not about the money.  Thank you Curt for finally bringing the World Series championship back to Boston.

Knowing that he is a celebrity that shares a common interest with me, DOES make it feel good - even if I don't know him. Others get a thrill from knowing that a famous sci-fi author also plays the game (Salvatore?).</P> <DIV>Basically, what I'm saying is that there is no need to attempt to 'Diss' people because they are excited or moved by the fact that they share a common interest with a personal hero or idol. I'm sure that if Miral or Strazz discovered that Curt SChilling was a member of their guild in EQ2, then they would be letting people know at every opportunity! <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></DIV> <DIV> </DIV>

That interview is a great read, Tamat. I remember reading some stuff a while ago about Schilling and Glanville joking around about their EQ characters. As a baseball fan from Boston it's especially nice to see that he's so into some of the same stuff I am. He seems to have an awesome attitude in general, though -- I remember when he first came to Boston and all the interviews were a pleasure to read as they were brimming with optimism.  I could live without the Bush campaigning, but the EQ2 balances it off. I've been to three games so far this season and looking forward to more, hoping to see Curt healthy and atop the mound as soon as possible. <div></div>

<P>Bumped into him briefly at FanFaire.  He was at the Best of the Best tournament and signed some magazines and some Red Sox items for some of the other players.  No one's really fawning over him here or bugging him a ton that I saw.  To me, that's gotta be nice for someone with his celebrity.  </P> <P> </P>

During our live play session with Curt and the 8 other Drow members that attended, I loved hearing the comments quite a few of you casual and lower level characters made. For a lot of you it was the first time you had seen any end game content and looking at your faces in awe and hearing comments like "Wow, I need to level more this stuff is amazing!" made my week. <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /> <div></div>
