The Wyvern and Siberian clans still companionably patrol Manhattan, both on the search for crime and, in the case of the Siberian clan, a suitable home beyond the safety of Wyvern castle. Collectively, all Manhattan gargoyles (not including the Mutates) are gearing up for another breeding season in 2008. Many gargoyles are actively searching for a mate to spend their lives with and produce eggs.
Meanwhile, the Quarrymen are again building underground support and gearing up to break Quarrymen leader John Castaway (a.k.a. The Hunter) from prison. There are sleepers located in a variety of areas that are important to the resurrection of the Quarrymen following, including politics and media.
Here are some things you should know about the game.
- We are a PBeM game
- We are located on Yahoo! Groups boards. Yahoo! is not always friendly. While it happens rarely, it has happened. Be patient while waiting for posts.
- We do not follow The Goliath Chronicles or the canon comics. Most people do not readily have access to these resources.
- The year is 2006.
- According to Greg Weisman, Gargoyles creator, the gargoyle breeding season is every 20 years. The next breeding season, where coupling would actually produce an egg, is 2008.
- Hatching dates were/are: 1838, 1858, 1878, 1898, 1918, 1938, 1958, 1978, 1998, 2018, 2038, etc.
- Gargoyles age half as fast as humans. So, a 10 year old is 5, a 50 year old is 25, etc. Because of this, they live twice as long.
Primarily, the game is located in Manhattan. It can, and likely will, include other areas. But, for right now, it is in Manhattan.
This is our timeline picking up from Hunters Moon Part III. This timeline is subject to change as we acquire more characters and when it is necessary to write in more events that occurred. Also, this will be updated as frequently as possible, but may not be updated immediately after a change.
