A massive 3-D, multiplayer persistent universe, Everquest set an example for all online roleplaying games to follow. You take the role of a hero in the world of Norrath. Choose from any one of 12 races and 14 classes and begin your quest for fame and fortune. Your goal is to increase your wealth and experience, allowing you to purchase better equipment and learn new skills. Unlike other role-playing games, Everquest allows you to play online with a staggering average of 24,000 players simultaneously. The world of Everquest is large, immersive and persistent... and the story continues even when you are gone.
