Keith’s thoughts on this piece:

Sometimes, things happen for a reason.  When Brad McQuaid called me to illustrate the cover to the massively multiplayer online computer game called Everquest, I had no idea how accepting the commission would change my life.  At the time, I saw it as a project that would allow me to revisit some of the subject matter that I missed.  After years of book covers that explored different areas, the subject matter in this game was a chance to get back to the things I so loved and illustrated while I worked at TSR.  I had the chance to paint ogres, trolls and beautiful women again.  It was a lot of fun.  It also took me two months to do the first painting.  During that period I did a multitude of layouts and designed the player characters that appeared in the piece.

After working with Brad for a short time it became apparent to me, and him I think, that we shared a vision.  It’s always so much easier when that happens and usually better art is the result.  I finished the cover, the game came out, and was a huge hit.  More box covered followed as Verant was acquired by Sony Online Entertainment and published expansions.  I found myself involved in another very successful property, which didn’t exactly break my heart.  To quote Lt. Col. John ‘Hannibal’ Smith, “I love it when a plan comes together”, and this one had.
