Shadowwolf has revised this history a great deal, and I suggest you go look at it on the MM history page on the new website we have for the MoonMist:

This is a ROUGH history of the Moonmist. If ANYONE has anything to add, please do.
(I'm going to use an olldddd history account I found on our old maxpages site and edit it a bit. It contains some stuff I didn't remember. Some of it could use a lot of extra detail, but bear with me for now. I'm editing stuff I wrote at eleven. x3)
It was the pack started in 1999, when WolfWeb had first started, when the CrystalMoon merged with the BlackMist pack. Crystalight and BlackClaw alphaed the CM, Shadowwolf and Whitefang alphaed the BM.
It all began with a young adult female wolf named Shadowwolf, she began to form a small pack called the BlackMist. The first wolf to join was Whitefang, a strong black male wolf. Shadowwolf was quite taken with him. A few other lone wolves became members, and the pack flourished.
Almost at the same time the BlackMist began, a wolf named Crystalight created a pack as well. It's name was the CrystalMoon. The CrystalMoon did not have very many members, and Crystalight wondered if the pack would survive. Shadowwolf had an idea that since CL's pack wasn't doing very well and the BlackMist had dwindled to three, they should perhaps take the bold move of combining their packs. Crystalight thought it a great idea and the two packs, Black Mist and CrystalMoon, became one. The MoonMist.
After a while, Shadowwolf and Whitefang began to spend more time with each other and became mates. CL also had met a wolf to call her mate, his name was BlackClaw.
There were now four alphas running the MoonMist pack, more and more members kept on joining. One of these members was Wind Caller, who became the well-known pup sitter of the pack, she was friendly toward everyone and simply adored pups, but when the time came to protecting the pack, she became as fierce as the alphas.
One day, a creature named Amaroq ( AMAROQ__ xD remember?) attacked the MoonMist pack. The battle was short, but bloody, and the four alphas planned to move the pack lands elsewhere, somewhere safe and somewhere with more territory. The new land that they found became the MoonMist valley.
(Crystalight's 'High Howl' protects the borders, it sealed off all evil entry. Gosh, was I such a kid.)
There were no pups in the pack until Crystalight and BlackClaw became parents.
Shadowwolf and Whitefang began to adopt many stray and lonely pups.
One day Wind Caller met Wind Howler the two became mates and watched the pups together.
CL and BlackClaw had five puppies: MidnightThunder and TornadoWhip were the only names I remembered.
After CL's pups were older, BlackClaw was tranquilized by humans and taken away for an unknown reason. Crystalight slipped into deep depression, mourning the loss for a long time.
TornadoWhip, CL's oldest son, had gone off to find a mate and make his own pack. He tried to form the StormySonya, with ShootingStar and Rainbow Chaser. Rainbow Chaser left to form the TimberFalls, and TornadoWhip became aggressive. Shooting Star left him as well.
CL disappeared in her mourning for three months. Shortly after, she found a new mate, Syntack, but he disappeared as well, leaving Crystalight alone once more.
Whitefang and Shadowwolf finally had pups. There seven of them, but two were killed by a couger.
The MoonMist pack lost some members, and gained many more, they created enemies, and they created allies. Crystalight began searching for another mate to help her run the MoonMist, she met SunFaze and Crystalight was again happy. BlackClaw made a random return appearance but didn't linger with the pack for long.
At that time, the only evil wolf around was DarkSun, but soon, other evil wolves appeared and staked out their territory around the MoonMist. The closest evil pack to the MoonMist was the EvilWind, and with the location of the two many skirmishes occured.
Shadowwolf and Whitefang's pups grew older and Katiol, the oldest pup, began to venture more into the EvilWind lands. He got in trouble many many times, collecting multiple scratches bruises from fights.
SunFaze began to rarely come around, until finally Crystalight had had enough of his disappearing. She's just not too good with the guys. =/
She found a new mate, Apollo.
And wow, Apollo left too...(hrm, maybe CL had stds.) CL had no mate. Shadowwolf and Crystalight had an argument. Crystalight said she was leaving, but the conflict disappeared.
Crystalight thought she'd finally have a stable new mate, Cutter. A large, golden wolf, he stayed around longer than any of the others. They had five pups, (names again escape me, not all of them were active.) one of them was Esperanza, one Riparare, another Bello. A tragic riverside experience led to the death of three, the disappearance of two others, and the disappearance of Cutter.
Crystalight abandoned the pack.
Shadowwolf later left, there was nothing left of the pack for two years.
Bello and Crystalight were reunited, and currently reside in the MoonMist lands, alone, not even speaking to each other much, wandering around idly.
The MoonMist lands is comprised generally of a large valley surrounded by a ring of mountains. Four rivers intersect near the center. The only entrance other than scaling the mountains is through the 'waterfall cavern', a tunnel through the mountains concealed on the outside by a small waterfall that one can walk through.
