Joe Ned

Podcast Guest

Joe Ned is an experienced gamer with a particular affinity for the MMORPG EverQuest. He has played many multiplayer online games, but considers EverQuest his all-time favorite, noting the strong emotional attachment players have to their achievements within the game.

He appreciates expansions and the significant shifts they can introduce to a game’s mechanics. Joe possesses a pragmatic view towards gaming, understanding time constraints and the lure of servers that cater to players with limited availability, such as time-locked progression (TLP) servers.

Despite his preference for the Necromancer class, he mentioned that he has successfully completed the Mage epic quest, citing the powerful summoned pet obtainable from it, which remained viable over several expansions. Joe jokingly reminisces about his time as a guild and raid leader, acknowledging the difficulties and sometimes chaotic experiences involved. Moreover, Joe’s familiarity with EverQuest’s intricate details, such as item quests and raid strategies, showcases his deep knowledge of the game.

Joe’s ingame identities seem to be as mysterious as the arcane sciences themselves.

Jordan Doll

Podcast Guest

Jordan Doll is a passionate and seasoned player of EverQuest, a fantasy-themed massively multiplayer online role-playing game. Enjoying Scottish heritage and residing in New York, Jordan has been an enthusiastic member of the game’s community since the year 2000, marking over two decades of investment in the evolving virtual lands of Norrath.

Starting his adventure during the launch of the Kunark expansion, Jordan was captivated by the lizard people in the game, a fascination that has persisted through his extensive gameplay. Over the years, he has expressed excitement in experiencing further expansions such as Legacy of Ykesha and Shadows of Luclin, particularly appreciating the graphical updates that came with them, despite the challenges posed by his computer’s graphic capabilities at the time.

Jordan Doll’s dedication to gaming is evident not only through his long-term engagement with EverQuest but also in his in-depth knowledge of the game’s lore and community. Through his experiences in-game—like his search for the legendary ‘greenmist’ weapon and engagement with the Iksar race lore as a shadowknight—Jordan has both contributed to and drawn from the tapestry of narratives and social interactions that define the spirit of EverQuest.

Jordan is Razorlou in game on P99 Green. He’s probably got other identities too.

John Richardson

Podcast host, producer, beekeeper

You have a right to be curious who you’re talking with, so here we go! After years of experience in the exciting realm of Information Security and IT Governance (honest, it was), and now juggling a myriad of responsibilities, such as running a business to earn a vanishingly small crust, raising two incredible teenagers, advocating for Scottish Independence, and even pursuing my love for beekeeping, I’ve managed to carve out a teeny amount of time to pursue my passions. One of those passions is podcasting.

In my past podcasting adventures, I have explored the vast and captivating world of MMOs, as a gamer playing Everquest from c2002, Star Wars Galaxies, and Eve Online, and as the host of the StarfleetComms Podcast. I have also delved into the thrilling realms of science fiction through book and film reviews, as both StarfleetComms host, and the DataSlate co-host. I even had the opportunity to take part in political discussions as Jack Blast on the Rewind For More Info podcast and season one of this podcast.

I’ve recently decided to pivot this podcast to talking exclusively about EverQuest and what truly ignites my passion is the opportunity to connect and converse with fellow enthusiasts, that’s where you come in.
