    Any original EverQuest fans out there? Brad McQuaid (the guy who made EQ1) is Kickstarting his new MMO Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen. It's going to be a niche game targeted towards the old school crowd, pretty hardcore. It will also share a few similarities with Vanguard, but it will be much closer to EverQuest 1. If any of you are interested hit up his Kickstarter and back it!

    Hmm. Watching the interviews... the game seems more "desired" than "inspired." When it comes to new MMOs I tend to look at gameplay mechanics. If there is nothing notable in that regard then it's just another MMO. That's why EQN excites me is because of the mechanics like destructible environments and smart AI. I don't mean to hijack the thread though.

    I love that he is targetting the old skool. He is clearly going to make a game that is difficult and rewarding, as opposed to most modern games which are almost medicating.

    Yea, i follow EverQuest Next as well (my main site is for that), and I agree that between Storybricks, voxels, and the overall sandbox approach will make for a very refreshing MMO.

    Pantheon on the other hand is going in a much different direction. No desire to be for the masses, just a niche MMO targeting players who desire that old school EverQuest type of game. I will play both for sure, but Pantheon is targeting a crowd that has been all but forgotten about which is nice.

    Kickstarter went $460k out of $800k, not enough to be funded. So they have opened up funding on their own site:


    They are also approaching investors directly.

    Kickstarter didn't work out for them, but they are moving forward.

    I have followed some interviews since development was put on hold.

    Brad is using the demo to try to get investors. He says he will produce a video of this demo for public consumption soon.

    There is some discontent over how much the devs got paid for their work. There is talk of the devs splitting off and making a different game with a smaller scope than a MMO.

    Brad has recruited some people from the community and is continuing development that way.

    Some videos have been uploaded:
