    Default Erudite Transformation?

    Is there any lore to as how Erudites changed from their appearance in EQ1 to the Alien-like beings of EQ2?

    Early on one could assume it was a different artistic "vision" for the world of Norrath. But with SF release, the character models on Odus look very close to those of EQ1.

    The lore reason has something to do with the nexus blowing up.

    I suspect it was to stop the racist cracks though, and people naming themselves Eddie Murphy.
    Group lfm, no erudites please!

    Highbourne starting city in EQOA before Prexus destroyed the city(they said he was going too, not sure if Lore has him sinking Highborne or not) , I am thinking my first Erudite character was white then after Frontiers Expansion they were all black. ]The cool thing was before the expansion they had dockworkers building a large boat, after Frontiers there was a mass exodus to Odus. Paineel for evil and Arcadin for good aligned chars.Time line this all happened before EQ1 so the Erudites were allready men of color, also has them listed as High Humans kind of like they evolved to be smarter than average human race.
    The Age of Enlightenment
    A small, frail man of great intellect called Erud led this group, and he formed them into a council. They quickly became irritated, even disgusted, by their fellow man. Leaving a small network of spies behind, the remainder of Erud's followers fled the city of Qeynos and boarded a small fleet of ships. They sailed to the west and landed upon the barren coast of the island of Odus. The land was sparse and uninhabited and quite appealing to the council and their people. They quickly built a city of their own, dissimilar in almost every way to both Qeynos and Freeport, for it was almost entirely a towering castle. Erudin it was called, and within it the scribes and scholars, who called themselves High Men, gathered and analyzed reports, captured books and scrolls, and other artifacts brought to them by their spies. The first human mages since the Combine Empire were born ? wizards, sorcerers, and enchanters occupied the great halls of Erudin and grew immensely in both power and knowledge.

    The Age of Turmoil
    It came to pass some years later that a small group of Erudites discovered the lost art of Necromancy. They were branded heretics and great conflict arose. For the first time in several hundred years, the Erudites fought. They engaged in a civil war not entirely dissimilar to that which they had loathed and fled from back on the mainland. But there was one very significant difference ? they did not use swords and bows, but rather magic, and the result was terrible. Lives by the hundreds were lost, great buildings and structures destroyed, and eventually the heretics were forced to flee Erudin, to hide and regroup in the southern regions of Odus. In one final battle, great mystic energies were released and an immense hole leading to unknown depths beneath the earth was created. Into the sides of this chasm the heretics built their own city which they called Paineel. And while both sides still seethed with anger and hatred towards one another, their fear of what the last battle had wrought has kept any further conflict at bay.

    Also if anyone has played Everquest Champions Return to Arms on playstation 2 they had big alien heads there not as round still very odd shaped, guess they can randomly change from game to game lol

    When Odus was teleported out of Norrath, Erudites got hit with some serious magic.
