The results of the favorite starting city polls continue to come in and it looks like there are 3 run away leaders. Notice how the evil race cities have fared… no surprise, right? Unless it was in your nature to side with a dark elf, you didn’t hold an evil starting city as the most joyous places to begin a character. They were typically dark, green, gooey, and full of nasty things that would make leveling quite difficult.
I think this is an aspect that EQOA did a poor job in developing. I made maybe 1 evil character past level 20 and that was an ogre about a year before the game was killed off. What this means if that I ported directly to FP before I was even level 10. Evil races got the shaft big time for starting cities.
