Crimson Moon reached Duchy status in 2001, but fueding and civil war eventually split the chapter into Crimson Moon, and a chapter called Colonial Mist across town. This was generically referred to as the "CM/CM Wars" throughout the kingdom.
In the Spring of 2003, Crimson Moon and Colonial Mist finally reconciled and joined their numbers once again. The chapter would meet on Colonial Mist grounds, but retain the name of Crimson Moon for historical sakes. The chapter flourished and were soon reaching average attendances of 75+.
