/New Online Trading Card Game Playable Within and Across Online RPG?s; /

/Subscribers to Receive Free Starter Deck/


/Legends of Norrath^? Oathbound/, the online trading card game based on
the rich fantasy worlds of EverQuest^® and EverQuest^® II, is now live
and available for all EQ and EQII subscribers. Playable from within
either of the two online games, players can take on challengers in
casual gameplay or test their skills against AI opponents, across all
servers, within both live games.

/Oathbound/ is the first release in the /Legends of Norrath/ storyline,
featuring more than 375 digital cards, available in both 55 card digital
starter decks for $9.99 (plus applicable taxes) and 15 card digital
booster packs for $2.99 (plus applicable taxes). In the three-part/
Oathbound/ storyline, players become part of a secret war between the
forces of Order and Chaos, preventing the realm of Norrath from the
brunt of a bloody and eternal war.

In addition to player vs. player combat, /Legends of Norrath /provides
the complete online card gaming experience, featuring a sophisticated,
re-playable AI system for single player campaigns, easy to use
management tools and numerous Casual and Tournament game lobbies.
Victory can be achieved by completing quests or reducing your opponent?s
health, enabling players to employ their own unique strategies for
victory. The game also features a robust loot system; more than 30 loot
items each for EQ and EQII will be available, including player mounts,
potions, clothing, weapon adornments and spells.

To get started on the fun, EQ and EQII players will receive a free
starter deck and game client to play. Non-subscribers will also get a
chance to compete against the EQ and EQII community on September 12,
when a free stand alone version of the game is scheduled to be available.
