10.16.04 - 1:35 AM
San Diego, California-based Sony Online Entertainment has released first details regarding two races featured in its upcoming MMORPG sequel EverQuest II. Griffins are powerful predators of unknown origin. While they are said to be volatile in nature, some griffins have been tamed and can be used as means of transportation between different towers errected across Norrath. Three towers have been built in Antonica allowing users to travel between Qeynos and the Thundering Steppes. Three more towers can be found in the Commonlands, providing a passage from Freeport to Nektulos Forest. Frogloks are a race known its wisdom and battle skills. Those frogmen are native to the swamplands of Norrath and were created by Mithaniel Marr, god of valor. In Innothule Swamp, the froglocks have been fighting a fierce war against the trolls of the region. 400 years ago, with the blessing of their deity the frogloks drove the trolls out of the city of Grobb and re-named it Gutka, Outpost of Marr. After the Rallosian War, some frogloks settled within the walls of Qeynos. While rumors suggest they are in danger, various expeditions have not found any whereabouts of them. Frogloks will be playable after users on each server manage to unlock and complete one specific quest.
EverQuest II will be available on November 1st.
