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 they 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.
Keep an eye out for a giveaway event near you, and don't forget to take a selfie with the Queen of Swag herself!
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!
Sunday funday, cleaned up some TOV dragons and helped Castle with a Ring War.

Some Video & Screenshot Highlights of this last week in Kingdom!!
Kingdom's first Warder Engage
One of these things doesn't belong
Klandi Sleeping like a Clown
Kingdom has entered Sleepers Tomb.
Oh hey. It's been a minute. We've been busy.
Started off March by making the Avatar of War faceplant with a little help from our friends over at <Safe Space> (very safe), thanks to alpha male, hunter of green scale, King of Kael - Lord Rebale. He's probably losing count of his Kael FTEs by now.
It's weird having a Barbarian Bard around, but we're getting used to it.
We also got sick of Harmonying Sontalak so we decided we'd roll over 65-deep to relieve our Druids/Rangers cause we're nice like that (even to our Druids and Rangers - seriously. Apply today).
God look at that resolution. Classic AF, Perp. Classic AF.
Then we decided to pay Tunare a visit again with our friends at Castle. Does killing her twice count as farm status? I'm gonna say killing her twice counts as farm status. We have Tunare on farm status.
And we've really been enjoying watching Greywind's photography skills continue to improve (he's been getting a lot of practice).
All in all, it's been a pretty fun first 10 days of March. Crossed some targets off our list of names. Not many more to go, and they're in our sights. Kingdom will be there, one way or another. But we have one question - will you heed the call?
Great Cycle, Kingdom!
Observations from yesterday - Kingdom likely has the best necros on the server. Dragons show a lot more personality when you kill them. Fear is rough. Sperm charts are hilarious. Kingdom loves getting their players Epics. There is some really skilled competition on this server. And Kingdom is made up of amazing players, great friends, and killer experiences.
Enjoy the Photo Collage! For The Kingdom!
Fantastic job Kingdom on our First Time Kill of KLANDICAR!!!
Congratulations Kingdom on slaying Zlandicar!
HAPPY THANKSGIVING, KINGDOM!
In honor of this year's Thanksgiving Holiday, Kingdom is pleased to offer clemency to Norrath's national thanksgiving
turkey ... er *checks notes*... stonegazer cockatrice, named Charlie the Cockatrice. The ceremony was attended by Pacatus, Pyrrh, Tiervan and Revaustt. Unfortunately, charm broke shortly thereafter and was killed in what is being called an "accident".
Kingdom hopes that all of our members, our friends on P99 Green, and the Project 1999 staff have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving holiday (or simply a great week for those who are not located in the United States). We are thankful for this crazy community we all have here in Everquest Project 1999.
