Apocalypse Party for End of First Phase of Beta

June 2, 1999

What would you do if you were a character in a virtual-reality world and knew the Server Wipe of the Apocalypse was about to erase your hard-earned stats? Would you run amuck, or would you hold a party to celebrate the time you'd had, the things you'd managed to do, and the friendships you'd formed along the way? Maybe a little of both.[1]

Scavenger Hunt

June 14, 1999

A strange agitation gripped the advocates of Dereth, who arranged a contest to recognize adventurers bringing them the most valuable collection of specified monster trophies within a six-hour span. Why they needed these items gathered so hastily, the advocates would not say, but many answered the challenge nonetheless.[1]

The Campaign Against Wardiel

July 24, 1999

The evil captain of Bael'Zharon tried to subject Dereth to his will. Despite assistance from foul banderlings and even fouler traitors, Wardiel eventually succumbed to the valiant defense.[1]
"In Yanshi, the deaf oracle has broken his lifelong silence, chanting a litany of baleful portent: the world-devouring serpent uncoils from the cosmic abyss. Bael'Zharon passes like a shadow before the sun, conjuring his altars of strife within the very towns of Dereth, and those who patiently count the stars mark a score fewer each night. Pass the next four days in the manner that appears best to you. The world is in the making, and the agents of chaos sanctioned to destroy."

Fire in the Sky

October 22 - 24, 1999

The final beta test incarnation of Dereth came to an end under the baleful glare of a comet, as meteors impacted major towns, scraps of ancient prophecy blew across the land, and terrible fire elementals rained from the sky.[1]
