SOE wants to court you but you'll have to work for it

The cold, bleak month of February has never struck me as particularly romantic. But my frosty heart is often melted by trinkets, so I'll take what I can get. With Valentine's Day drawing near SOE has decided to court the players of a few of their MMOs. Instead of sending them inappropriate pictures and hanging around their houses late at night in the conventional manner, SOE is offering quests, contests and rewards. If they do start stalking you it has nothing to do with their Valentine's Day celebrations and you should probably just call the police.

In Free Realms players can celebrate the Festival of Hearts which features a pixie romance, themed areas and quests for special Valentine's Day items. In Norath it's Erollisi Day and Everquest II's players can aid the Sisters of Erollisi in fulfilling the call of love, if that's carnal love or something else, I don't know. Star Wars: Clone Wars Adventures is just getting some marketplace items, maybe it doesn't deserve as much love? You can find the dates and some more information on their respective sites.
