Introduction

These are the recorded events that can be remembered and dated in Discworld MUD's history. Feel free to add as the dates are surely scattered amongst personal and MUD log files! Anything you think is significant can be an interesting addition, although don't be offended if it ends up disappearing as things get shuffled around - we can't put everything on here, but we can hopefully catch all the really interesting things. Please try and put dates in "Discworld MUD server time when the event happened" rather than the local time-zone in your log file.
