In original Everquest you chose your starting city, and you might then be far, far away from your real life buddies (who chose other races and cities). By the time you hooked up with them, you might be level 15-20.
I know Pantheon plans to avoid fast travel (except maybe player ports?).
So is this how it will be in Pantheon? With players needing to find a way to get to their friends, who could be on another continent?
