One of our amazing guild druids (named Milbo....) was having fun shortly after joining the raiding ranks of Kingdom, posting selfies at each kill site. His photos were getting progressively better, and inspired Sir Jumjumshot the Templar to do a bit of photoshop action himself, as we all began wondering where we'd find Milbo next.
If you happen to have a Milbo sighting somewhere fun in Norrath, or elsewhere in this wonderful world of ours, share it with us and let's see if together we can answer the question of "Where's Milbo"!
In honor of this year's Thanksgiving Holiday, Kingdom presents the 2022 saga of Norrath's national Thanksgiving turkey ... er, checks notes again... stonegazer cockatrice, named Charlene the Cockatrice. She is the sister of the late Charlie the Cockatrice, who nearly earned clemency in 2021 but fell victim to typical Everquest RNG. You can read about Charlie https://kingdomdkp.com/eqdkp/index.php?a=181here
Please enjoy the holiday, and watch for episode two of Kingdomgiving 2022 to find out the fate of Charlene!
What's better than killing Trakanon? Obviously, killing TWO Trakanon's back to back.
It was a night of many doubles (Double sinew, Double EoN, Triple Ruby Tear, Double Robe of the Spring, Double White Scale...) but this one was certainly the oddest.
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Kingdom followed through on their historic pick of the Plane of Sky during the first Green Server Draft by completing a full week of Sky raids! Two a day. Yes, indeed.
(That's a lot of Queen Bee and Sister kills...)
Please enjoy this commemorative video by our most talented videographer, Apollyus!
Congratulations to Kingdom on another guild progression milestone - our first solo kill of Lord Vyemm! Enabled by virtue of being a Kingdom selection on the first P99 Green Draft, we were able to spend time training, trying out fun new strategies and hone in on some raid positioning.
108 Kingdom members strong earned fame, fortune (Vyemm's Right Eye, and a Silver Bracelet of Rage), and a shiny new guild achievement "TOVthumpin - I get knocked back, but run in again!" for the victory, as a reminder that no one will ever keep us down.
We are looking forward to a contested, solo Vyemm in the near future! As Pacatus says ... "Always Keep Progressing!"
FOR THE KINGDOM!!
Chipping away at our last remaining progression goals, Kingdom solo killed AOW on the recent quack .... um, I mean quake. 111 Kingdom strong for this fight!
The full Quake Kill List included Dozekar, The Statue of Rallos Zek, The Avatar of War, Lendiniara the Keeper, Essedera, Lepethida, Lord Feshlak, Lord Koi'Doken, Lady Miranilla, and Lord Vulak himself. Not a bad afternoon's work!
After a feast of a quake late into the night - over 16 dragons culminating with a hard fought Vulak slaying - Kingdom is riding high. It's an amazing feeling to see all of the hard work, training, strategizing, and prep work come together with a fulfilling evening of raiding with friends.
Check out this incredible raiding video, featuring some of our recent adventures in the lands of Norrath, and remember - we are always looking for more amazing players to join our ranks!
If getting to know us sounds interesting ... mosey on up to our application tab, make an account, and look forward to some fun times and lifelong friendships! Our recruiting team will reach out in Discord and in game and start the process. We look forward to meeting you!
Have you met Kingdomswag? Kingdomswag is a good will bot that spreads kindness and generosity to players on Everquest P99 Green in hopes of bolstering a fun and social community for all.
Her mission? To support the efforts of new players in hopes that they will one day grow mighty enough to face the strongest foes of Norrath.
She so far has completed 8 give-aways to the younglings of the Green server in the zones of Oasis, North Ro, Crushbone, and Mistmoore. Recently she was proud to distribute two Argent Protectors amongst her other donated swag.

Vulak'Aerr lurks in shadows in the northern wing of The Temple of Veeshan. His six guards await his arrival, unaware of the preparation being held at the temple's entrance. For there stands an alliance of warriors, spell casters, thieves, and more waiting for their moment to strike. In the instant his scales show, scouts report the sighting. Powerful magicians carve a path through drakes, while monks are summoned behind the dragon himself. Flipping through to gain his attention while Wizards single out each of his guards to match arcane wits against. The force moves in tandem, taking positions behind walls and pillars. The strongest warrior takes point in front of the dragon's maw and begins his defensive stance. Clerics are quick to heal his wounds while the Shamans attempt to extinguish some of Vulak's might. Slowed. Crippled. The dragon begins to struggle to make a dent in the warrior's armor. And with wave after wave of backstabs and flurries of blows... he is injured... he is badly wounded...
and Vulak'Aerr falls...
We thank our raid leaders for pushing us to get this kill. Thanks to everyone in Kingdom who toughed it out over several attempts, training workshops, and practice sessions.
Thanks to our allies in Safe Space, who stood with us after all the prep and missed engages. And our new allies Castle, who defied all odds by heeding the call of Kingdom.
All this time and energy was not without its reward. It is difficult to maintain a healthy life and be able to accomplish such a monumental goal together inside a video game. Kudos to all.
And so, I give you the loots of your labors:
Vulak'Aerr was defeated but he has issued us a rematch. A challenge we intend to take on next week!
FOR THE KINGDOM!!!
Qeynos Catacombs. Felwithe. and finally to Cabilis ....
This month we are looking at Kingdom's many avenues for constant improvement! As a progression guild, we enjoy the process of perfecting an encounter by growing our players to contest raid targets more efficiently, respond to meta or ruleset changes, and complete our progression charts.
We're getting close to having kills on all of the available P99 targets (see our Classic, Kunark, and Velious Progression on the taskbar to the right) and have our eyes on many goals to continue to challenge ourselves in the raiding scene.
How do we do that? Well ...
Different encounters require different raid compositions. Having our members comfortable on multiple roles is what secures us our target! We believe it to be very important that anyone can pick up and play these crucial roles.
These workshops are outlined and run by our seasoned EQ veterans. This carefully curated information, combined with a strong force of shared characters, allow our members to swap characters to fill in what is needed for us to be successful.
Here are some of our recent workshop sessions and the experts behind them:
- Quad Trainout Training (Eratanii, Pwrhousse, Jumo, and Pyrrh)
- Clean/Dirty Tagging (Asca, Calcium, Erser, Anarke)
- OBS Intro/Overview (Vanitee)
Weekly Practice - Hosted and Organized by Anarke, Totie, and Pacatus.
Our impressively low number Sontalak kill was heavily reliant on the practices we held leading up to it.
Our constant improvements on Vulak preparations have dramatically increased our chances of a successful engage and kill.
OBS/Raid Review - Everyone
Recordings of our faults as well as our premium play-making abilities. Our members and leadership alike take pride in reviewing all aspects of our raiding.
These reflections make it possible for adjustments to our strategies, improvements in communication, and overall understanding of the encounter so everyone is on the same page. They also provide a basis of what workshops the guild is currently focused on.
If you or a friend are interested in raiding Classic Everquest content, then look no further!
Even if you forgot some encounters or are new to some meta changes, we have plenty of guidance to get you up to speed. Send us an application right now!
We've had a busy month filled with so many great kills and loots!
In the Plane of Growth: A grove filled with animals and sprites. These inhabitants are hostile to those who would oppose the Tunarian council.
Within the Temple of Veeshan: Three wings so dutifully named, conquering them means conquering the dragons within...
In the caverns of Kael'Drakkel: Where stalagtites drip to stalagmites, mighty giants intend to rid the lands of their short enemies.
A dwarf sits on his throne in Icewell Keep: Only to be lured out and beaten in melee combat. We take his head as a trophy.
Through the mazes of Skyshrine: Wyverns and golems cannot keep our force from dropping in and defeating their city leader.
All evil, beware... for Kingdom will be back next month!
Apr 11 - Apr 17
Raiding Results: With the Sleeper Awakening looming over us, Kingdom started the week with Zlandi. The next day, we had a CLEAN Tunare kill into a Statue/AoW. What a strong Tuesday!
On Wednesday we amassed with the server and sniped Lord Yelinak before Kerafyrm could get there. We showed off some absolutely amazing goal-tending abilities.
Shortly after the Sleeper event in Skyshrine, we had a sweet sweet quake that gave us a 2nd Yelinak, a 2nd AoW, Doze, CT; plus Klandi and LTK putting us at FIVE new ST keys.
~Notably in Fear, we were able to take the CT kill away from Seal Team who was already in the zone when we made the call to move over. Felt GREAT!
Saturday quake netted us a few more sleeper keys and priority kills. Sleeper's sweep and another Doze. Let's go!
