IGN is offering Free Everquest Accounts. The account includes a 450 meg copy of "Classic Everquest" which is basically the old world by itself without the three (soon four) expansions, although that is enough for someone just starting out. You will be able to play free for a month but each month is $13 afterwards.
If you haven't given it a shot, Everquest adds a whole new layer of social value to standard hack and slash roleplaying games. It has kept me pretty entertained for over two years and I don't see it leaving any time soon.
