Note to Visitors

Much of the material on this site is drawn from work done on two MUSHes, both now since closed -- Dark Between the Stars and the original Fading Suns MUSH. Most of it was generated by me or by Lextius/Tholumiyelos, but the nature of a collaborative forum like a MUSH means that many had a hand in some of that legacy work. In some cases, the material I've posted up was written a long time ago, and I now have some doubts about what I wrote. In those cases, I've commented on the article's talk page.
