Introducing the Home of Flames, Argin-Hiz07-16-2014
By: Jennifer "Yaviey" Bridges
It is usually quite hot during the summer months around the deserts of Ro, but the heat this year has grown shockingly hotter. The patches of desert vegetation have wilted and, in certain areas, turned completely black. Recently portals appeared in Ethernere-Tainted West Karana and South Ro. Flickers of hot ash and puffs of dark smoke are said to spring forth from the portals. In South Ro, the disturbance has caused an extreme drought, and the locals have rightly taken notice. If the heat wave is not broken, the desert’s oasis will dry up and parch the regions of Ro.
The torridity isn’t the only threat, however. Reports of burned creatures venturing forth from the portal have increased as well. Initially the Freeport guards were sent to investigate. Despite their assistance, it became quickly apparent that more needed to be done. Even the great Solusek Ro has sensed the portal’s danger. He has sent an ambassador to ascertain what threat may lurk there and what connection it may have to the great sun god.
Quick to move, Lanys T’vyl has also been investigating these portals. After her initial inspection, she believes that an ancient artifact lies within the depths of the city beyond the portal. She also believes that the artifact could be the final key in returning Lady Lendiniara back to her home.
Little is known of the fiery city of Argin-Hiz or its strange inhabitants. Brave hero, you must investigate the mysterious city. If the promise of flames does not compel you, the promise of great riches will. But be warned, for all is not as it seems.
Argin-Hiz, “Home of Flames” is a level 100 zone in EverQuest. It can be accessed from the portals in Ethernere-Tainted West Karana and South Ro. This zone is considered group content, and it is recommended that players do not travel there alone. Argin-Hiz will contain all-new items, quests, and more.
