Below, please find a high-level summary of the game's IC history.
Events prior to day 1, month 6, turn 17 of the 10th interval IC, August 8, 2008 OOC, took place on PernMUSH and/or TooMUSH during PernMUSH's downtimes. As of this IC date and OOC date, NorConMUSH officially split off as a separate game with a separate timeline from PernMUSH. The timeline up to that point was the same, barring any re-writes that individual players undertook at the time of the split to bring their characters over.
