Welcome to NostalgiaEQ!

Thanks for stopping by.  NostalgiaEQ is a free, open source, and independent EverQuest server that you will be able to play.  It is not affiliated with Daybreak Games; the current owner of the EQ franchise.  It is totally free to play and there will be no purchasable items or content, everyone will be on the same footing. This is a fan project to preserve the game as it originally was at its release in 1999 but with a few tweaks and modern additions that add to the fun but don't detract in any way.  I am using modern Everquest Titanium as a starting point so it won't be exactly how it was in '99 but I will try to get it as close as possible.

Let's watch as a community grows that meets or exceeds the fun and teamwork that we remember from back in the day.  I hope new players will come too and experience what made the original everquest so great and a legend to this day.  My hope is that we learn about MMORPG's and survival games and how they work and use this server as an inspiration for the next generation of games.

The beta server release is scheduled for July 2017 where anyone can come and play.  The beta server will not have characters wiped but may go down for prolonged periods after the main server is launched.  **edit: the beta server will probably be wiped.  Current plan is to give you GM powers in beta so you can go everywhere and do everything and look for bugs**The main server will be launched Jan 2018.  To play all you will need is the game file that I will be posting here and an internet connection.  More instructions will be released as the launch draws near.

Please subscribe to the right side via Email or below via RSS (atom) as I will be posting often here about development work on the server and updates including server rules.  See you soon!
