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:
Unfolding the Lore
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

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
