So I'm trying to do the 10th anniversary quests in Everquest. I'm finding the bristlebane party quest quite tricky, but there's a helpful calculation on allakhazam that tells you where he's supposed to be.
So I go to the butcherblock mountains (which is an awful zone), and I wait in the place he's supposed to be, but he's not there. I check the calculations. I run around the zone. I do another quest. I look puzzled. I get annoyed.
It's at this point I realise I've gone to a party no-one else is going to and I can't even find the party. But I'm doing it in an ancient videogame. On my own. On the internet.
