High Reaches' PC History

High Reaches Weyr opened as a PC area to play in on Harper's Tale MOO at the end of 1997 following a lot of discussions and decision-making. For more information on this, read Nuff's introduction on the main page.

This page is intended to detail events in High Reaches' on-camera history, and to provide links to logs (when I get the chance to put in the links.) If you see that anything is missing, please contact Palia in-game and she'll be sure to fix it!

January 2008: Mass Gold Exodus TP: Several of High Reaches' golds rise at the same time — or attempt to stop it — and are injured, leaving them no choice but to leave to Southern, badly injured.

September - October 2008: Chey seems to be following in Frusha's footsteps, issuing a Weyr-wide quarantine at the start of Frusha's clutch, rearranging ranking officers in the Weyr, and even threatening people's livelihoods.

October 2008: Ex-Weyrwoman Frusha disappears *between* forever after a fight with Chey, supposedly over her clutch that had just hatched. It was 6 eggs, five of which hatched, but only four survived. Reaches again is left with only one goldrider.

November 2008: The Mysterious Killer TP: An attacker sends Chey into a coma, Mynwiyath injured, and a lower-caverns woman is murdered. After some investigation, Head Guard Krummolt is apprehended for the crime.

December 2008: After a long struggle trying to become well again, Chey finally gives in to death, and Mynwiyath follows only moment later, leaving Pern and her clutch behind — and taking a piece of 'Reaches heart with her.
