Meet the New EQ2 Community Manager: Roshen

If you looked at pictures of, or attended, the pool party at SOE Live this year, chances are you saw a shark running around, photobombing people.

Meet Ry "Roshen" Schueller, our new Community Manager.

Our departing CM, Margaret "Luperza" Krohn, announced the change on the forums last night:

We've had a short but sweet journey together. Although I've been a player in this community for a long time, it’s been wonderful being your Community Manager for the last few months.

I am proud of the contributions we have made together in this community, and remain inspired by the passion you all bring to the game with your feedback. We created a new web show series, EverQuest II Insider, that has provided everyone with a sneak peek into the Development Team’s side of the world, and I only foresee it growing further with the love and care of Roshen.

Roshen, who has been on the SOE community team for a few years now, introduced himself as well:

Some of you may already be familiar with me from my work with the EverQuest community, and some articles I've written for EverQuest II over the years. I’m Ry Schueller, and many of you know me as “Roshen.” I've completed a number of quests that will let me unlock the title of Community Manager for EverQuest II after Luperza transitions into other things.

Did you come to SOE Live 2014? You may remember me better as: [shark picture, seen above] (I’m the shark. Not one of the more attractive individuals in the front here).

A footnote to the announcement clarifies:


This event doubles the base status earned by defeating encounters, or rewarded from quests. Guild status is rewarded from that base amount, so yes it is in effect doubled.
