About EverQuest II The Shadow
In an age long passed, a band of
extraordinary heroes embarked on a journey to free Norrath from the clutches of
a shrouded threat. Their quest would take them to the far reaches of the globe,

trials. This was the Shadow Odyssey, and the heroes were known as the Ethernauts.
In their time, this epic quest came to an end, and Norrath was saved. But now,
history is repeating itself. It is time for a new generation of Ethernauts to
retrace the steps of their honored predecessors through the ruined, unforgiving

destroy the renewed evil of the Shadowmen.
