03:29 pm - History!
Here's the history of the Acorn Kingdom, the main area of the 'game', so to speak.
History - Acorn Realm
Recorded history begins a little over 3000 years before the time of
Sonic the Hedgehog. Records are sporadic, at best. Until about 1000,
civilization was mostly small clans of Mobians and Humans living
amungst themselves. Technology was low, rudimentary tools and such.
Most records were passed down verbally in song and story, though a
few people wrote these songs and stories down, and this is what we
use to tell history, today. There were few wars from 1000 to 2000,
though a few gained notoriety.
The Acorn lineage got it's start in 2460. They were not royalty yet,
however. THey gained notoriety in the Great War of 2650, having one
of the key members of the family being a general that was partially
responsible for the victory against the Humans. Although they had
been at war, Mobian and Human peace was formed soon after the end
of the Great War, with King Matrim Zoras signing a treaty with
Allen Brightner, King of the Humans. And this peace remained for
In 2723, the line of Acorn royalty began. Owain Acorn was the first
Acorn monarch of Mobius, viewed as a powerful yet kind man, the
citizenry adored him. From Owain, the line continued, for many years,
until the line was nearly broken in 3056. Alistair Acorn was accused
of commiting atrocities unheard of for a king. However, in a case
that lasted for 5 years, the king was proven innocent, and the
betrayers to the throne who had started the vile rumors were exiled
to the land of Downunda for their crimes.
From that point on, the Mobian world remained at peace for the next
near-two hundred years. Until Robotnik's takeover in 3224. He tricked
both the Humans and Mobians that he was on their side, and went about
turning the Mobians into machines, while he removed his own Human-kind
From there, the next ten years was a time of Robotnik creating his
mechanical Mega-City, Robotropolis, and going from nation to nation,
either destroying them or enslaving them. Station Square, the Mobian
city of industry, fell first. Then Downunda. And then several of the
outer-laying Zones of the world. Few were left unscathed.
During those ten years, the select few of the Acorn Kingdom that
escaped, notably the Princess, Sally Acorn, began to build up a sort
of rebel army to take on the threat of Robotnik. Dubbing themselves
the "Freedom Fighters', they began hitting the evil dictator with
a series of guerilla attacks.
Now, in 3236, Robotnik is learning of this Freedom Fighter threat, as
well as small uprising in the other nations of the world. Forced
to stop his efforts in mechanizing the world for the time being, he
is now focused on removing this threat to his world. Time will tell
if either side will ever be truly victorious..

11:36 am - RP Logs! :D :D :D
So, after spending an hour last night and a good 45 minutes this morning showing off my
1337 HTML skillz complete and utter lack of effort in even implementing CSS, I present to you:
It's aliiiiiiive! Most people are coming back to their mains, however, we still have a lot of FCs open, especially on the badnik side. Connect in and check 'fclist' for an up-to-date list.

12:18 pm - Server troubles, info, and a poll.
So, those of you following this may have noticed that ChaosMUCK has been up, then down, up again, down again, etc., for the past few days. I managed to get in touch w/ Raven/Onix about it and he says the server it's running on has a bad system drive - however, the DB is on a secondary drive that's fine, so there's no danger of data loss. He said he has plans to rebuild the server w/ a new system drive, as well, so hopefully in the near future we may have a bit more stability.
All that being said, as a backup I've also managed to compile and run the basic install of GlowMUCK (the back-end server software) on my own home server. Next time I see Raven I'll see if I can get a backup copy of the DB and associated software, etc., just in case, so we can run it as a backup.
A few of us have been able to get together and talk about what our (ambitious? :D) plans are to try and resurrect the place. Everything from plotlines to RP, to the creation of new, smaller areas, and even hints about maybe forking into Second Life. What do you guys see as the future of ChaosMUCK?
Also, we should probably try and get all our contact info together at some point (maybe in a 'friends-only'-type thread) so we can keep in touch should there be further issues w/ stability, and put out some feelers to see if there are other people that may be interested in (re)joining us? :)
UPDATE: Chaos is back up again - MS pushed out a security update on the server OS that forced an unwanted reboot.

10:35 pm - Awesome! Chaos is up again.
Sweet! Well, Chaos is up again, magically. I dunno how, or why, but it's awesome. So! I'll be around, if anybody wants to start something with me. We should get something going, kids. Anything. I miss it, I really do.
Addendum: Oh yeah, since, well, everyone is gone, just about everyone is open. So if you, your friends, your friend's friends want to come, feel free to ask/apply for anyone. Anyone. Seriously. Even Sonic.

12:23 am - Some of us still exist!
Hello everybody! I'm still around, despite Chaos' seeming down-ness. And now that I don't have a job, I'm totally free :P. Anyhoo. I'd like to get something going again. I don't care what, or where. If you have ideas, post it here. If you want in, post here. Whatever works. There isn't anywhere to RP Sonic-ness anymore, looks like, but I think we should fix that. Even if it's just like 5 of us. 5 is better than zero. Anyhoo, if you want to contact me, I'm firstname.lastname@example.org on Yahoo, and Diabolusbeast on AIM. It'd be nice to hang with some of my old friends again :P.

02:26 pm - Troubles
Hey there. A long time ago I use to RP here, but life has prevented that for a while... three or so years, in fact. However, I tried to look for Chaos again when I could, and what do you know!
Problem is, I cannot connect to the website for some reason (is it FireFox friendly?) and so the only place I could find the server info was an old and out of date website. Maybe the server info could be posted here? I would really appreciate it!
