Sojourn/Toril Pre-Wipe Timeline

Postby Nyyrazzilyss » Tue Aug 11, 2020 12:39 am

Wish there was a historical timeline for major events that had occurred through Sojourn and Toril prior to the most recent wipe (2001). I'm listing some I can think of (likely out of order), many undated. If you can think of something to add / or accurately date, please reply!

December 1994 - A new spell system was added requiring memorization of spells (not mana) and practicing skills

January 1, 1995 - pwipe, beginning of the new 'Sojourn1' era
Removal of Dragonnia, Myrenthrea
New Zone: Jotunheim
New Zone: Icecrag

Dec/1995 (?) "The Dream" loss of backups and a month(+?) of the mud

January, 1996: New Zone: Havenport

March 20, 1996 - The Split: Sojourn1---> Toril1 | Duris. First reference to this I could find. The split however likely had occured in 1995.

Early Sojourn3 discussion (2001-2003)

2003: Shevarash 'That's when we "split" again. We retired the Sojourn 3 name and split into two MUDs, one run by myself, Shar and Cyric, and the other by Miax.'

Shevarash 'The general timeline is: Sojourn 1 (1993-1995) -> Toril 1 (1995-1998) -> Sojourn 2 (1998-2000) ->Sojourn 3 (2001-2003) -> Toril 2 (2003 - current)'

Shevarash 'That's fair. Maybe just call out the "forgers" of each era.'
Shevarash 'Soj 1: Mystra/Lloth/Cython -> Toril 1: Mystra/Gond/Lloth -> Soj 2: Kia/Mask/Shev/Cyric -> Soj 3: Miax/Kia/Shev/Cyric -> Toril 2: Shev/Shar/Cyric'
