Everquest's lead designer plans to Kickstart a new MMORPG called Pantheon: Rise of the Fallen this month.
Brad McQuaid confirmed via Twitter (https://twitter.com/Aradune/status/418948206144155648) findings from fans who dug up the plans for the new MMO ahead of his planned Kickstarter announcement, but revealed nothing further about the game beyond a piece of concept art.

Releasing after an extended development cycle, the game was widely perceived as a failure and eventually purchased and reworked by SOE.
In a forum thread (http://www.rerolled.org/showthread.php?3460-Brad-McQuaid-starting-new-project&p=514967&viewfull=1#post514967) dedicated to digging up info about the game, McQuaid said he was overconfident after his first major project, Everquest, was a major success.
"I became extremely arrogant, thinking whatever I touched would turn into gold," McQuaid wrote. "And then when things didn't work out so well on my second try it was really quite a blow to me because I had deluded myself big time. I ended up in a bad place and I never want to be back there again, ever."
McQuaid said he is looking forward to revealing more about the project soon.
