In a rather alarming development it appears that vicious hackers (also known as hax0rs for our l33t speaking audience out there) managed to break the Everquest Source code. The hackers, said to be led by the devil-like figurehead known only as Shawn, seem to have altered the game beyond repair. The hack was first discovered when the guild known as Legacy of Steel (referred to commonly as the Evil Empire on The Nameless Server) killed the High Priest of Ssraeshza only to discover that his loot table was secretly replaced with the Va'Dyn's loot table.
