PostSubject: The Cleft Timeline?   Sun Dec 06, 2009 1:13 pm

Shorah and Yahr Rahm to my hoodies!! cheers

I've been very busy lately so I haven't had a lot of time to post. The holiday season seems to get busier and busier each year. I suppose that's a good thing considering the financial status of the US lately.

Well, I have a really silly question that I know SOMEONE has to have the answer to. I remember somewhere that there ws an IC timeline and history to the original (first...or second perhaps?) discovery of the Cleft and D'ni. I am speaking of the discovery by Elias Zandi (as well as the other individual that I can't remember the name of who had the land before him.) and not of Yeesha's discovery of the Cavern via the Cleft entrance.

I'm trying to write an IC story of the history of the Cleft and I know that the reference material is out there, I just can't remember where it was. confused

Do any of you know where I can find my info?

Shorah,

Dave

Short, short version of timeline notes, as taken by a report by RAWA and on drc forums.

1987 - John "Fighting Branch" Loftin discovers the Great Shaft
March 19, 1988 - Branch and Elias made their first trip to the caverns
1989 - (Third major expedition) they found the city.
1990 - Elias, and Branch take RAWA to city for first time
1991 - Trio made another trip - Branch didn't make it back
1992 - Evident that Elias was consumed by restoration
1993 - Elias had open-heart surgery
Late 1993 - RAWA brought Rand, Robyn, and Ryan to city
1994 - Safety cones brought down
1995 - People started arriving in desert, looking for D'ni

(many became volunteers of the restoration)

Late 1995 - Jeff's first trip to city

(Jeff and Elias philosophically disagreed about the restoration - Elias was consumed with physical restoration - Jeff strongly stated that it was a spiritual restoration - the two parted not on good terms.)

1996 - Elias died of heart attack
Jan 1997 - RAWA formed DRC


From Teledahn information:
11-1997 DRC/Sharper started working in Teledahn
3-3-98 Sharper's first sighting of Shroomie
3-3-00 DRC moved their headquarters to the city
9-21-00 Sharper Trapped Shroomie
9-22-00 Sharper butchered Shroomie
5-23-01 Sharper found the pod of Shroomies
10-21-01 Tragedy occurred ... not sure which
11-2-2001 The KI machine is found (presume this is when they first entered Gahreesen ... my assumption because I would think this is where they find the machine.)

Beginning of 2002 they plan to open the cavern to explorers authorized by the DRC

2-23-2002 Report that the KIs have been working well
3-20-02 DRC opens Teledahn to visitors (Rand and Ryan (I think) were the first.
4-25-02 Teledahn got phase 5 approval

During 2002 are the Zandi battles with the DRC about explorers gaining access to the cavern. He is sending down the people Yeesha is calling to the Cleft, and the DRC do not like it. He eventually wins.

Sharper is cheering Zandi on and supporting him, but not for the right reasons yet.

11-28-03 Phil shows up
12-8-03 Sharper is taken in by Yeesha's power and makes the comment, "It's either Yeesha or the DRC"
12-28-03 Phil's fall


Hinahsh owned Teledahn for ten years, then the Guild of Caterers took over with Guild Captain Ventus running it for awhile.

Manesmo bought the Age cheap - started harvesting the spores again. They made bread. This is when the slave trading started and they sent them to Rebek, where they hunted the slaves for sport.


We have a longer version posted at the Friends of the Fissure message board.
http://fissure.forumandco.com/forum.htm

The longer version also shows the timeline for when the Great Shaft was made on up. It's in D'ni time...can't remember how to convert it.

Great thanks for this! It should help a lot in my writing!

It's a shame there's nothing before the 1980's. I wonder what the area would have been like in the 1920's to 1940's.I guess I could investigate New Mexico in those times to approximate something.

I checked the timelines out and it seems that nothing has been recorded during those times. I am unsure of what time Yeesha began her life in the Cleft and began trading with the native tribes.

Gues I'll have to be creative.

For Friends of the Fissure, we have a group of Navajo as our inspired IC people. I found this to be contrary to local history, so Okaasan (Inanna), made up a reason for the Navajo to be there. This is our conversation on this matter (From FOF forum):

"Elpis' research suggests that the area around the Cleft is most likely inhabited by Apache and Hopi, rather than Navajo. I have therefore started making some plot adjustments:

The Navajo in the area are there because of La Casa's days as an Indian school run by the government. I have rewritten the WNDN interviews and will inject elsewhere that the Navajo are there because their children were "stolen" from their rez and placed in the school at La Casa. The parents followed in order to be close to the children even though no contact was permitted. In time a Navajo community formed."
