EQ2′s next expansion — The Shadow of Odyssey

Posted by on April 24, 2008

SOE has just registered trademarks for (presumably) the next expansions for EQ and EQ2.

EQ2′s next expansion is The Shadow of Odyssey,

while EQ’s next expansion is The Seeds of Destruction.

Shadow of Odyssey… well, since Luclin was the shadowed moon and the gateway to the Plane of Shadow was within it, I think I have to call “I WIN” on this one. Given the connections between the Everlings, the Tunarian Throne and Luclin disclosed recently…

We’re going to the Moon, Alice. To the fuggin’ MOON.

    There is no direct link between the Shadowmen and the Shissar but that doesn’t mean one can not unfold during the course of events. The Shissars tried to defy the gods by trying to becoming gods themselves. Perhaps as a punishment they where stripped of their corporeal form and banished into another dimension and back in time.

    BTW, my Massively article just came out. I’d love to hear how stupid my conclusions are, and new & even more likely idea about what the expansion *really* is about.

    Hello Kitty Norrath? Bring it on!

    Now, the more interesting question is: What new gameplay elements/mechanics will this expansion introduce?

  4. Tipa

    I spend 1 week away from the internet and this is what happens… damn i allways pick the wrose weeks..

    any way W00t that sound cool. Thouse it dosn’t mean its on the moon it self, a huge chuck of the moon could of landed on norath and it is its own island.

    I hear in maj’duls pea cock club is a Lady who talks abaout Odus, Velious and Befallen.
    before RoK was it a Iksar who talks about Kunark
    and before EoF was it a Dwarf who talks about Kaladim.

    And the next place can never been Luclin, do you forget it? Luclin don’t exist anymore.
    only the two other moons Drinal and Morrell(only visible in Maj’Dul)

    but the keyword is Odyssey not Shadow

    Morrell-Thule is the god of dreams. I hadn’t heard he had a moon named after him. The orrery in the Tower of the Moon in Maj’Dul shows Norrath as having on two moons, with the Luclin one cracked.

    Of course Luclin is still around — it’s just in pieces. The whole moon was filled with magical power (the Nexus, remember, was a Combine installation near the center of Luclin, and the NPCs would talk about the magical energy there). With so much magic being flung about, can you be certain nothing lives there?

    I thought Befallen was known in EQ2 as Stormhold? They share some similarities.

    It was a woman who talks about it, not if it realy comes, who knows it.
    maybe Stormhold opens a new zone
