More patches than Planter's has peanuts.
Sony Online Entertainment has posted the latest and greatest EverQuest 2 patch notes. It is somewhat probable that they wrote this:
|"Strange objects are appearing along with these new gnolls. It is unknown at this time what link these objects have with the alleged abductions, but witnesses claim these objects move from place to place."|
