Does anyone remember when the black rock detector project began?

  1. Does anyone remember when the black rock detector project began?

    Even a month and year would be helpful.

    I'm looking for an important RP record on the LS shard relating to it. And I can't remember even the month and year for the life of me.

    It was last year, before the KR launch.. that much I can remember. Check around then for news posts and such.

    Might have started the end of the previous year even.. you'll want to check from around October 2006 - April 2007.

    That was the Magincia event, not the blackrock detector.


    From June 21, 2007 (thank you Gildar, I had forgotten there were BNN archives).

    So did I! Or I could have avoided making you do my work for me.

    Many thanks!

  7. BNN update:

    Blackrock Detector To Be Unveiled!
    Anderson the Scribe Mar <font color=red>27 2008</font color=red> 4:20PM

    “After initially losing funding from the Mage’s Council in Moonglow, progress on the "blackrock detection machine" resumed late last month with government intervention, and is finally nearing completion. Despite fears of the dangers involved in working with the still-mysterious substance, officials agree on the necessity of knowing where it is. Captain Avery, of the militia, made the following statement:

    "After the destruction of Haven, we are taking any activity involving blackrock extremely seriously. After thorough and careful review, the Royal Council has agreed to authorize the completion and use of the blackrock detector to ensure the continued safety of Britannia."

    The mage Kronos, Director of Alchemical Studies and the chief mage on the project, was unavailable for comment. His apprentice Dexter assured the BNN that, despite the delays, work on the project is going smoothly and they do not expect any snags.
