There's a new blog in town ... the SOE Artists blog! And this week there's a great article up by EverQuest II animator Tom Tobey. Not only does he give a fascinating insight into what kind of work goes into animating characters in the game, but there's also a little sneak peek at the panda men from EverQuest II's upcoming expansion, The Sentinel's Fate.
In other news, EQ2Traders has a great preview up highlighting the crafting and live event related features coming in the next game update. You can hop on to Test server and check it out now in person, too.
And last but not least, with this month being the 5th anniversary of EverQuest II, and this year marking the 10th anniversary of EverQuest, it's a great time to go check out Jace Hall's humorous EverQuest documentary, EverCracked! This is being released on IGN as a 4 part series, with one part coming out per week, so be sure to keep checking back. I've seen the whole thing and it's well worth watching - there's even a cameo by the stars of The Guild to look forward to in the last episode. =)
