As we all know, the Travelers set has been released and includes a loot card for EverQuest and EverQuest II that grants an in-game quest for access to a limited zone. The community isn't completely happy with this move, which Calthine discussed in her recent editorial. Whether you approve of the loot card or not, Sony Online Entertainment has announced some new Legends of Norrath events for interested players.
The Travelers release weekend tournaments just kicked off today at 11 a.m. PDT and will run until 5 p.m. More tourneys will be held tomorrow and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. This will be the first time players get to use the Travelers cards in a tournament setting. More information can be found after the jump.
Also, the Brraaaaaainss! scenario runs through Nov. 11 and will pit you against a horde of zombies. The first time you win the scenario, you'll win the Zombie's Guide to Procreation promo card and either the Unscribed Glyph loot card for EverQuest or the Draught of the Brilliant loot card for EverQuest II.
