EverQuest: Underfoot Expansion - Exclusive Screens

Updated Tue, Sep 22, 2009 by Medawky

The storied EverQuest franchise continues to grow with it's amazing 16th expansion, Underfoot. The first installment of the expansions "Unfolding the Lore" series has been released and gives us a look at Brells Rest:

Underfoot: Unfolding the Lore

Brell's Rest

Brell's Rest is the place where the worthy of Brell's worshippers go when their time on Norrath ends. Some worshippers are given places amongst those of the Underfoot, to work on the world, but few find such a thing to their liking. Many spend their afterlife in an "ideal" setting for their race. Dwarves, gnomes, gnolls, kobolds and others all live in or around Brell's Rest or in the Shining City just out of sight on the sphere above. However, most of the residents of the Rest are gnolls and kobolds. The dwarves tend to stay in the city brewing beer and crafting things in stone and metal, while the Gnomes tinker, though some of them also wander the land to see what's up out there.

There is much conflict between the gnolls and kobolds in this domain, since conflict is what they love. Their violent and destructive tendencies tend to keep them out of the Shining City.

There is also an arena dedicated to battle in Brell's Rest. Here groups of warriors challenge each other to games to prove their superiority.

Trouble in Paradise

Gnoll and kobold warriors have clashed joyfully on the battlefields of Brell's Rest for millennia, but recently the kobolds have found fewer sparring partners. The gnolls have been acting stranger and stranger, as though they are hiding something from the rest of the realm. Most aren't speaking at all, but those who do will only whisper of one they call "The Destroyer" or "The Undying One," their faces twisted by equal parts fear and adulation. Whoever or whatever "The Destroyer" is, the gnolls do not appear to have it under their control just yet.


Ten Ton Hammer was also fortunate enough to have been granted a look at some additional shots of  new in game areas not found on the official site:
