Veil of Alaris Storyline:
Hidden since the Age of Scale, a sixth continent of Norrath is being revealed and exciting adventures await. For centuries the Alaran gods have been hidden away behind the Veil of Alaris regaining their power. Restless for more, they ventured out of Alaris to take the power of a Norrathian god. After gaining the power they desired from the God of Fear, they returned to Alaris. The power they brought back destroyed the veil that had kept them hidden since the time of dragons. This is where your adventure begins. Travel to Alaris and experience lush new lands, majestic structures, and meet an intriguing new race – The Alarans.

One thing in some of the screen-shots for the upcoming expansion took me aback, is this WoW or EQ? Yeah that’s a “Gnomish Airship”, ugh.
