Okay. Well. THAT was a day. Holy heek.
An explorer named Briggs hung around Watchers Pub today while work was going on, keeping an eye on things as Explorers tried their best to peek into the room.
Snipits of Chatlog from that part of the day:
(08/19 14:51:17) Sussaro: woohoo found a way out dont have to relto
(08/19 14:51:26) Briggs: Oh hi, how’d you get back here?
(08/19 14:51:43) Calum Traveler: shorah,
(08/19 14:52:16) Briggs: I heard tell some skydivers may have found a way into the book room 😛
(08/19 14:52:28) Sussaro: yup follow me lol
(08/19 14:53:32) Max Welrod: Briggs, you are involved with restoring the next ages?
(08/19 14:53:37) ondine waves goodbye
(08/19 14:54:16) Briggs: I’m only very minorly involved in making sure things are safe and stable
(08/19 14:54:44) Calum Traveler: well, safety does come first ^^;
(08/19 14:54:50) Sussaro: OHS
(08/19 14:54:57) Tehlrov K’hris: footsteps are quite loud for me in this room
(08/19 14:54:59) Briggs: Patrick is doing all the heavy lifting!
(08/19 14:55:09) Sussaro: yes all should have barefeet
(08/19 14:56:04) Calum Traveler: i hope all the skydiving over the barriers aren’t too disrupting to the work ^^;
(08/19 14:56:52) Briggs: It was expected! We tried our best to make sure those barriers were sound but there are much more professional skydivers out there 🙂
(08/19 14:57:05) Calum Traveler: where theres a barrier, there’s a skydiver who can get past it ^^
(08/19 15:02:54) Briggs: I’m really looking forward to seeing what skydivers can do come Friday 😉
(08/19 15:03:03) Calum Traveler: oh, that’ll be something alright
(08/19 15:03:06) cjherkeless: Oh god yes.
(08/19 15:03:11) Calum Traveler: XD so many new places and things
(08/19 15:03:12) Briggs: There’s a particular spot I have in mind….
After some time, during a break period where eyes weren’t focusing on the room properly, a strange incident happened where the Barriers were briefly stolen away and a fake linking book was planted inside the room. A prank, it seemed, not that many realized it at first.
(08/19 15:28:45) Boywhith: O? Barricades are gone now?
(08/19 15:29:05) Tehlrov K’hris: when did that happen?
(08/19 15:29:06) Calum Traveler: huh. i thought i was imagining things.
(08/19 15:29:17) Tehlrov K’hris: I look away for two seconds and then…. lol
(08/19 15:29:28) Calum Traveler: they sorta poofed a little while ago… thought i was wishful hallucinating
(08/19 15:29:50) Calum Traveler: maybe a bahro took ’em? cant imagine why a bahro’d want horse barriers tho.
(08/19 15:29:56) Tehlrov K’hris: our mind power is opening the book room
(08/19 15:29:58) Boywhith: Perhaps it was my magic?
(08/19 15:30:08) Calum Traveler: no clue
(08/19 15:30:34) Calum Traveler: either a bahro, or the DRC triggered a remote transponder teleporitificator that pulled them back to the great barrier storage room and…
(08/19 15:30:37) Calum Traveler: no, that’s just silly.
(08/19 15:30:51) Calum Traveler: seriously thought i was imagining thing sfor a moment.
(08/19 15:30:59) Briggs: It’s entirely possible we didn’t ask the DRC before using their barriers, and they took them back when we weren’t looking
(08/19 15:31:20) Calum Traveler: cloak mode reseng coulda been likely.
(08/19 15:31:20) cjherkeless: did anyone check if patrick didn’t just steal a couple from near the library ?
(08/19 15:31:33) Boywhith: And how it is possible that Sussaro can sit there?
(08/19 15:31:46) Calum Traveler: the traditional skydiving 😉
(08/19 15:31:50) Briggs: I remember someone saying to take them from the library, but I thought it was a joke!
(08/19 15:31:55) Sussaro: Sussard of OZ behind the curtain
(08/19 15:32:03) Calum Traveler: well, that’s a headline
(08/19 15:32:05) Tehlrov K’hris: there are two people
(08/19 15:32:14) Boywhith: I see some others there too!
(08/19 15:32:15) Calum Traveler: “Library Barriers swiped by mysterious forces not once but twice!”
(08/19 15:32:28) Sussaro: oh wow there is a book here now!!
(08/19 15:32:31) Boywhith: It is The Love Zone!
(08/19 15:32:43) Calum Traveler: wait, really? 0–o;;
(08/19 15:32:50) Briggs: Okay that’s really not supposed to be there yet
(08/19 15:32:54) Sussaro: oh my
(08/19 15:32:59) Sussaro: shall i go through
(08/19 15:33:00) Calum Traveler: let’s… avoid touching anything
(08/19 15:33:01) cjherkeless: Well, obviously, don’t touch it.
(08/19 15:33:06) The Love Zone: Oh, yeaaah
(08/19 15:33:10) Briggs: In all seriousness, please avoid using it for now
(08/19 15:33:10) Sussaro: lmao
(08/19 15:33:12) cjherkeless: skydiving is one thing…
(08/19 15:33:20) Calum Traveler: (seems like something got nudged early. >>;;; )
(08/19 15:33:23) Sussaro: wait ill send u all a pic
(08/19 15:33:23) Boywhith: Please, you two… come out there…
The barriers were quickly found and replaced, and the fake Linking Book confiscated. However, the event triggered alarms, and several individuals related to the project came to Watchers to check over the status.
(08/19 15:44:08) Briggs: Please don’t remove the barriers, guys. Leave them be, it’s for safety of all!
(08/19 15:44:10) aqua: Shorah Scharminius
(08/19 15:44:19) Calum Traveler: as fun as it is to sneak in there its probably for the best just to let everyone work >>;;
(08/19 15:44:38) Calum Traveler: we really dont want any accidents.
(08/19 15:44:41) Briggs: It’ll be open in due time, just a bit of patience 🙂
(08/19 15:45:26) Sussaro: yes be more fun when we all go through together
(08/19 15:45:35) aqua: Right!! 🙂
(08/19 15:45:41) Calum Traveler: and whatever the heck it was we just saw… well. ive seen stranger temporal anomalies here in the cavern.
(08/19 15:45:54) Sussaro: hahahaha
(08/19 15:46:01) Patrick Dulebohn: So…I had some alarms go off on my KI. I’m guessing we’ve had some activity here?
(08/19 15:46:03) Patrick Dulebohn winks
(08/19 15:46:03) Sussaro: odd eh
(08/19 15:46:08) Calum Traveler: some kind of either…idk
(08/19 15:46:10) Tehlrov K’hris: yes
(08/19 15:46:11) Calum Traveler: temporal hiccup
(08/19 15:46:13) Sussaro: at least i captured it before it went
(08/19 15:46:21) Calum Traveler: or someone smashed a bottle of teledhan spores open
(08/19 15:46:26) Sussaro: how did i know it was there if it was gone before i went
(08/19 15:46:32) Briggs: I think some trickster swiped the barriers when we weren’t looking
(08/19 15:46:38) Patrick Dulebohn: While I understand your enthusiasm, I ask that you please leave these barriers up for your safety.
(08/19 15:47:07) Calum Traveler: agreed 100%. no idea what the heck that was but it was unnervin’ ._.;;
(08/19 15:47:07) Sussaro: Ha the barriers have never been breached
(08/19 15:47:17) Sussaro: just the back door not locked
(08/19 15:47:36) Calum Traveler: must be the stress gettin to me.
(08/19 15:47:46) Patrick Dulebohn: Note that I have a handful of people going back there to work, but they’ve accepted the risks, folks.
(08/19 15:48:15) Dr. Sara Blom: Patrick, what’s going on? Alarms?
(08/19 15:48:20) Sussaro: Think the work is done, just add books
(08/19 15:49:02) Patrick Dulebohn: Yes, an unexpected incursion into the room that’s under construction.
(08/19 15:49:17) Sussaro: very unexpected
(08/19 15:49:28) The Love Zone waves hello
(08/19 15:49:37) Sussaro: but totally resisted like a choc donut
(08/19 15:49:39) Patrick Dulebohn: Ah, welcome Sara!
(08/19 15:50:29) C.J.Herkeless: everyone good in here, Briggs?
(08/19 15:50:29) Patrick Dulebohn: Dr. Blom is one of the people helping with this restoration.
(08/19 15:50:41) Calum Traveler: nice to meet you. ^^
(08/19 15:50:45) Tehlrov K’hris: hello
(08/19 15:51:01) Sussaro: Doctorate in what
(08/19 15:51:03) Dr. Sara Blom waves hello
(08/19 15:51:05) Patrick Dulebohn: And Briggs has been helping as well, doing some of the gritty work I was doing earlier.
(08/19 15:51:05) Briggs: I think things have calmed down a bit, yes
(08/19 15:51:17) EMM: Hi Sara. Thanks for doing this work with Patrick and team!
(08/19 15:51:44) Johny Bravo says stop!
(08/19 15:51:48) Dr. Sara Blom: Hello everyone… Really I’m a bit worried still, my KI was flaring red!
(08/19 15:51:58) Patrick Dulebohn: As was mine.
(08/19 15:51:59) Patrick Dulebohn grins
(08/19 15:52:01) Sussaro: ow burn take it off
(08/19 15:52:16) Scharminius: Another GZ marker? 😉
(08/19 15:52:18) Johny Bravo salutes
(08/19 15:52:36) Patrick Dulebohn: I imagine someone placed that there as a prank. As far as I know, we have the only handful of genuine Linking Books to that Age.
(08/19 15:52:52) Patrick Dulebohn: Seems someone wants to spoil things despite well-laid plans.
(08/19 15:53:07) Johny Bravo flinches
(08/19 15:53:12) Calum Traveler: better have that book inspected,
(08/19 15:53:20) Dr. Sara Blom: Patrick, you did tell them we’re still working hard for their arrival on Friday?
(08/19 15:53:20) Calum Traveler: who knows where it really went if it was a real linking book.
(08/19 15:53:24) Boywhith: Yeah. I already said that is ‘not done’.
(08/19 15:53:26) Sussaro: i didnt touch it and i sanitised the pedastal
(08/19 15:53:31) EMM: Someone on your team? Or other people have access to the linking books?
(08/19 15:53:57) Patrick Dulebohn: For the time being. Not to worry, on Friday, everyone will be able to access the Age and the Linking Books contained there.
(08/19 15:54:10) Dr. Sara Blom: We’re in the final stages!
(08/19 15:54:19) C.J.Herkeless: This is what happens when someone decides they’re “clever”. I’m sure we’re all looking forward to Friday, Patrick.
(08/19 15:54:25) Sussaro: but no big red buttons
(08/19 15:54:34) Calum Traveler: indeed, i think i can wait til Friday.
(08/19 15:54:38) Sussaro: will we be able to combo???
(08/19 15:54:47) EMM: That’s great news. Friday will be well worth the wait.
(08/19 15:54:55) Boywhith: I wait for years, so 2 more days is no trouble at all.
(08/19 15:55:01) Patrick Dulebohn: I’m glad you’re all excited! We’ve been excited to bring it to you.
(08/19 15:55:05) Dr. Sara Blom: What do you mean by ‘combo’, Sussaro?
(08/19 15:55:07) Boywhith cheers
(08/19 15:55:23) Tehlrov K’hris: thank you all for what you do!
(08/19 15:55:30) Calum Traveler: yes, seriously, thanks for the work,
(08/19 15:55:33) Boywhith claps his hands
(08/19 15:55:36) Calum Traveler: hopefully there wont be anymore incidents
(08/19 15:55:37) EMM claps his hands
(08/19 15:55:42) Scharminius thanks you very much!
(08/19 15:55:44) Patrick Dulebohn: And yes, with years of waiting, less than two days won’t hurt. We want everyone who can get here to have a chance to experience this event.
(08/19 15:56:06) Sussaro: combo jump , up walls etc
(08/19 15:56:13) Patrick Dulebohn: So let’s keep these barriers up and no more mystery books, shall we?
(08/19 15:56:14) Patrick Dulebohn winks
(08/19 15:56:31) Dr. Sara Blom: Patrick, did you get my note about the left imager?
(08/19 15:56:35) Sussaro: ha while you were sleeping…..
(08/19 15:56:42) Tehlrov K’hris: I don’t touch any book unless it’s approved
(08/19 15:56:48) Patrick Dulebohn: I’ve seen how folks can tend to climb on everything. The true mark of a spelunker.
(08/19 15:56:57) Sussaro: I have to be up at 3am for the curtain opening
(08/19 15:56:58) Patrick Dulebohn: I did indeed, Sara. Thank you. I shall look into it.
(08/19 15:57:11) Dr. Sara Blom: Good, it got me stumped, curious to see what you make of it
(08/19 15:57:13) Patrick Dulebohn: Really miss Lyrositor. He knew this D’ni tech backwards and forwards.
(08/19 15:57:19) Sussaro: a huge 200 avvie line up going into the book be funny
(08/19 15:57:35) Dr. Sara Blom: You’re not bad yourself Pat!
(08/19 15:57:38) Briggs: What would you like me to do with the fake linking book?
(08/19 15:57:49) Patrick Dulebohn: Ah, so it will be exactly like when the DRC revealed Ahnonay and Er’cana!
(08/19 15:57:50) Patrick Dulebohn laughs
(08/19 15:57:58) C.J.Herkeless: I can dispose of that, Patrick, if you like.
(08/19 15:58:10) jtrigg: I didn’t do it
(08/19 15:58:19) Calum Traveler: bad time to link in
(08/19 15:58:23) Calum Traveler: ^^;;
(08/19 15:58:34) Patrick Dulebohn: It’s OK. We’re not pointing fingers. Just asking for just a bit more patience.
(08/19 15:58:40) Sussaro: have to go through at 5 second intervals or we will crash i guess, have to issue numbers lol
(08/19 15:59:07) Dr. Sara Blom: The old Guild of Maintainers facilities should be able to help with despensing of the book
(08/19 15:59:22) Briggs nods his head
(08/19 15:59:35) C.J.Herkeless: Sure thing, that.
(08/19 15:59:36) Patrick Dulebohn: Their equipment has certainly been useful in surveying these Ages.
(08/19 16:00:38) jtrigg: see you Friday
(08/19 16:00:50) Dr. Sara Blom stares a the ceiling
(08/19 16:00:59) Dr. Sara Blom: I still find it hard to believe this place
(08/19 16:01:16) Patrick Dulebohn: So much of it is still a mystery, isn’t it?
(08/19 16:01:20) Jules Lavisham: Tell me about it.
(08/19 16:01:45) Jules Lavisham: Although it has been a while since I last laid eyes on it.
(08/19 16:02:16) Calum Traveler: its been a while for a lot of us. never loses its appeal, though, does it? ^^;
(08/19 16:02:19) Dr. Sara Blom: There’s much to uncover! Imagine what we will find…
(08/19 16:02:31) Patrick Dulebohn: It keeps bringing me back, that’s for sure.
(08/19 16:02:43) Jules Lavisham: Almost ten years in my case.
(08/19 16:02:57) Patrick Dulebohn: The work of restoration can certainly be a pain, but the payoff of the final result is worth the effort.
(08/19 16:03:13) Dr. Sara Blom: I know I’ve said it before, but thanks again for bringing me here Patrick… It’s been life-changing
(08/19 16:04:06) Patrick Dulebohn: Good to have you here, Doctor!
(08/19 16:04:12) Patrick Dulebohn salutes
(08/19 16:04:28) Dr. Sara Blom: And to be able to contribute to the restoration effort, too. It’s amazing. As you say, it’s definitely worth all the Lattice head-banging!
(08/19 16:04:32) Dr. Sara Blom starts to laugh
(08/19 16:04:52) Patrick Dulebohn laughs
(08/19 16:05:07) Patrick Dulebohn: I *told* you that thing was a beast. Laxman said so!
(08/19 16:05:30) Patrick Dulebohn: The man spent years trying to work the thing and even he didn’t figure it all out. That’s where we come in.
(08/19 16:05:31) Dr. Sara Blom: That man sure knew what he was talking about
(08/19 16:05:39) Jules Lavisham: I recall Laxman saying a *lot* of things.
(08/19 16:05:56) Jules Lavisham: The man was like a Will Self lecture on occasion.
(08/19 16:05:58) Dr. Sara Blom: We’re making slow progress. Slow but steady
(08/19 16:06:03) Patrick Dulebohn: Actually, a lot of the DRC said a lot.
(08/19 16:06:16) Patrick Dulebohn: Exactly. The key thing to remember here is you can all contribute in some way.
(08/19 16:06:24) Dr. Sara Blom nods her head
(08/19 16:06:38) Thumbs up from C.J.Herkeless
(08/19 16:06:52) Patrick Dulebohn: Whether it be helping to restore Ages or even Writing your own if you can find the sources! We will bring those too.
(08/19 16:07:42) Patrick Dulebohn: Plus, the cavern has seen better days, so if you want to find a location and spruce it up, maybe learn its history…by all means!
(08/19 16:07:51) Dr. Sara Blom: Writing our own Ages!! Pat, I know you’re ambitious, but…
(08/19 16:07:51) Briggs: The work you’ve all been doing is an inspiration, thank you so much from all us explorers
(08/19 16:07:53) C.J.Herkeless: Watson did tell us, all us explorers, it would be incumbent upon us to look further.
(08/19 16:08:23) Patrick Dulebohn: I’ve heard some have been dabbling for years, actually. I have yet to see a modern Age Written by an explorer, but I’d love to.
(08/19 16:08:52) Calum Traveler: It has been a long time coming, that’s for sure. hopefully we’ll see them in the future. 🙂
(08/19 16:09:26) Patrick Dulebohn: Just hope they’ve been safe about it is all. The Art is not to be taken lightly. Literally every Writers’ journal we’ve found has said so.
(08/19 16:09:59) Briggs nods his head
(08/19 16:10:01) Calum Traveler: so true. it’s definitely not something to be taken lightly.
(08/19 16:10:05) EMM: Turns out they probably know what they’re talking about 🙂
(08/19 16:10:06) Dr. Sara Blom: Really? Dabbling, eh? Well, I’m skeptical. But then again, I wouldn’t have believed you a few years ago if you told me about a giant cavern under New Mexico! It sounds ridiculous to even say it, but here we are!
(08/19 16:11:01) Patrick Dulebohn: Again, it might just be a rumor…but explorers are nothing if not passionate about D’ni culture…and the Art is one of the biggest pieces.
(08/19 16:11:25) Calum Traveler: may be a rumor, but a persistent one. ive been hearing about it for years now.
(08/19 16:11:32) Patrick Dulebohn: I believe even Dr. Watson himself said that it would happen.
(08/19 16:11:39) Boywhith: We all have some D’ni blood inside us…
(08/19 16:11:41) Calum Traveler: if true someone sure got their hands on something special a long time ago.
(08/19 16:11:56) Dr. Sara Blom: Hm, I’ll believe it when I see it…
(08/19 16:12:17) Patrick Dulebohn: Soooooon.
(08/19 16:12:21) Briggs: There’s a lot left to be restored in D’ni, too! And think of all the spare time you’ll have after Friday
(08/19 16:12:22) Calum Traveler: soon, TM.
(08/19 16:12:25) Briggs smiles.
(08/19 16:12:30) Patrick Dulebohn: Er…AHEM…sorry, that came out a bit “doom and gloom”.
(08/19 16:12:31) Patrick Dulebohn grins
(08/19 16:12:37) Tehlrov K’hris: All rights reserved.
(08/19 16:12:45) Calum Traveler: hey, we’ve been through a lot in this Cavern.
(08/19 16:12:45) Jules Lavisham: That was somewhat menacing.
(08/19 16:12:58) Dr. Sara Blom: You’re right there, Briggs! That’s the sort of thing that I like to keep myself busy with!
(08/19 16:13:13) Calum Traveler: it wouldnt be D’ni without some doom hanging over our heads. literally in the case of the miles of rock above us.
(08/19 16:13:25) Patrick Dulebohn: Well, you never know what you’ll encounter out there, even with our best efforts. That’s why we, like the DRC, always exercise caution.
(08/19 16:13:35) Patrick Dulebohn: And promote the same.
(08/19 16:13:45) Briggs nods his head
(08/19 16:13:50) Calum Traveler: Safety First.
(08/19 16:13:59) BIG thumbs up from Dr. Sara Blom
(08/19 16:14:01) EMM: That’s what I’m most excited for. Some city restoration.
(08/19 16:14:22) Calum Traveler: i dont wanna see another incident like that cave in.
(08/19 16:14:29) Patrick Dulebohn: New areas of Ae’gura would be fantastic! The island is more vast than it may seem at first glance.
(08/19 16:14:31) Calum Traveler: the safer everyone is the better.
(08/19 16:14:39) EMM: For sure.
(08/19 16:14:40) Dr. Sara Blom: What cave-in?
(08/19 16:14:50) Calum Traveler: some tremors a few years back.
(08/19 16:15:01) Boywhith: Long ago… a tragedy.
(08/19 16:15:11) Calum Traveler: couple of deaths from it. everyone was really hurt by it, emotionally.
(08/19 16:15:11) Patrick Dulebohn: Ah, they’re referring to the incident back in 2007. A tragedy that took the lives of two explorers.
(08/19 16:15:20) Patrick Dulebohn frowns
(08/19 16:15:30) EMM: That was a tough time in the cavern.
(08/19 16:15:33) Calum Traveler: yeah. it was.
(08/19 16:15:52) Calum Traveler: id rather we not see anything more like it. we’ve lost enough people over the years, even just to surface matters.
(08/19 16:15:59) Dr. Sara Blom: What?? How have I not heard about this before?
(08/19 16:16:06) Dr. Sara Blom: Then again, I suppose there is a lot to hear about
(08/19 16:16:10) Calum Traveler: that there is,
(08/19 16:16:11) Dr. Sara Blom: It sounds awful…
(08/19 16:16:18) Calum Traveler: couple of decades worth of work down here,
(08/19 16:16:26) Boywhith: You must start again your Heritage Nights, Calum, especially for the new players!
(08/19 16:16:28) Briggs: It was a tough time, I guess we don’t talk about it much anymore
(08/19 16:16:34) Patrick Dulebohn: It’s an unfortunate business. One of the sadder chapters in D’ni. I’ve meant to tell you, but it also haunts me to this day.
(08/19 16:16:38) Tehlrov K’hris: There’s also a lot to hear about for newcomers also
(08/19 16:16:41) Calum Traveler: sorry, Tom, but I dont have the time for that work right now.
(08/19 16:16:51) Calum Traveler: besides, i passed on the mantle to someone else.
(08/19 16:16:52) Boywhith: I understand :))
(08/19 16:17:11) Boywhith: But you were a master teller….
(08/19 16:17:13) Calum Traveler: HN’s Jamie’s work to carry on now. not mine. gotta keep the torch passing along.
(08/19 16:17:14) Dr. Sara Blom: It’s alright, Patrick. I know your mind has been burdened enough with such kinds of things, seeing our recent work
(08/19 16:17:29) Jules Lavisham: That was back when a lot of explorers and the DRC thought the bahro were about to start hunting us
(08/19 16:17:40) Calum Traveler: been over ten years since then though.
(08/19 16:17:48) Boywhith: I am glad I ‘have translated your book.
(08/19 16:17:51) Patrick Dulebohn: It’s a constant struggle. I worry about each and every person here in D’ni, especially once we take these first steps.
(08/19 16:17:51) Calum Traveler: gotta wonder whats been going on out there in the great beyond…
(08/19 16:17:59) EMM: A lot of people stopped coming down after that…
(08/19 16:18:03) Dr. Sara Blom: Oh yes, the Bahro… Those creatures from legend
(08/19 16:18:15) Calum Traveler: aint just legend. it’s… something else to see one face to face.
(08/19 16:18:22) Patrick Dulebohn: A formidable species to be sure.
(08/19 16:18:31) Calum Traveler: kinda cute, but kinda scary at the same time.
(08/19 16:18:31) Briggs: Hard to forget the body of the Bahro that was once laid right here, on this imager
(08/19 16:18:41) Calum Traveler: yeah, *mutters* damn it, Sharper.
(08/19 16:18:46) Dr. Sara Blom: Patrick, that’s why you are fit for leading this project – you know what’s at stake
(08/19 16:19:00) Patrick Dulebohn: I’m guessing you did *not* look at those reports I gave you on a woman named Yeesha, Doctor?
(08/19 16:19:05) Patrick Dulebohn grins
(08/19 16:19:12) Boywhith: I agree totally with you, Calum. Always show respect to a Bahro!
(08/19 16:19:29) Patrick Dulebohn: Absolutely. Living and intelligent creatures, they are.
(08/19 16:19:30) Dr. Sara Blom: Uhm, you know paperwork is not my strong suit…
(08/19 16:19:36) Calum Traveler: never know what one of ’ems going to do. play tag or start drawing in the dirt…
(08/19 16:19:39) C.J.Herkeless: We know the Bahro can comprehend us, even if we cannot speak to them.
(08/19 16:19:40) EMM: They keep the themsevles mostly, but when they pop up behind every once in awhile it still scares the bejeezus out of me
(08/19 16:19:51) C.J.Herkeless: How we present ourselves matters.
(08/19 16:19:51) Patrick Dulebohn: You should really read it. Her and her whole family are quite the story.
(08/19 16:20:04) Dr. Sara Blom: Oh no, is this about that Myst thing?
(08/19 16:20:12) Tehlrov K’hris: There’s a lot we don’t know about the Bahro
(08/19 16:20:34) Calum Traveler: It’d be nice to learn more, but there’s a lot about that we oughta respect too.
(08/19 16:20:36) Patrick Dulebohn: Yes indeed. It’s why I invited those folks from Cyan, Inc down here too. You didn’t think it odd I invited a game software company to the event?
(08/19 16:20:44) Patrick Dulebohn winks
(08/19 16:21:01) Dr. Sara Blom: I still don’t see why you bother… But then I don’t play video games, so what do I know?
(08/19 16:21:10) Patrick Dulebohn: They were instrumental in helping spread the word about D’ni through that series of games.
(08/19 16:21:18) Calum Traveler: the Novels may be more your speed,
(08/19 16:21:21) Patrick Dulebohn: Albeit with a pinch of artistic license.
(08/19 16:21:23) Patrick Dulebohn laughs
(08/19 16:21:32) Calum Traveler: though there are some ‘artistic license’ errors in ’em in places.
(08/19 16:21:51) Patrick Dulebohn: Yes, there are novels too. Good reads, although you’ll have to disregard the location of the cavern.
(08/19 16:22:16) Calum Traveler: so annoying, that one little niggling detail.
(08/19 16:22:18) EMM: location changed for privacy. haha
(08/19 16:22:20) Dr. Sara Blom: I suppose I will have to suffer through it at some point. Getting that Wall fixed first, though!
(08/19 16:22:23) Briggs: I encourage you to take the Journey, you may still find meaning in it.
(08/19 16:22:38) Jules Lavisham: So am I correct in understanding that some new ages have come to light?
(08/19 16:22:54) Patrick Dulebohn: Yes! The good doctor here is, amongst other things, trying to fix the Gahreesen wall!
(08/19 16:22:56) EMM: Oh yes, Dr. Blom. Taking the Journey would help a lot!
(08/19 16:23:06) Tehlrov K’hris: Wow, the wall
(08/19 16:23:09) Dr. Sara Blom: How would it help, exactly, EMM?
(08/19 16:23:22) Jules Lavisham: The Wall? Blimey, that’s an endeavour.
(08/19 16:23:23) Calum Traveler: ooh, the Wall. i wish you luck on that,
(08/19 16:23:27) EMM: That’s great about the wall! That’s quite the undertaking!
(08/19 16:23:43) Briggs: I think we all find a bit of ourselves in the Journey, even if the situation has changed a lot since it started
(08/19 16:23:51) Patrick Dulebohn: Well, not only will you learn who Yeesha was, but also about a rather dark portion of D’ni culture. So I advise a bit of caution.
(08/19 16:23:58) Dr. Sara Blom: Tell me about it! It’s a far stretch from the samples of D’ni tech that Patrick had me practice on…
(08/19 16:24:08) Calum Traveler: as a Historian, that Journey is quite the historical road map,
(08/19 16:24:22) Meko: I’ve always been so curious about the wall… Mainly what it was used for
(08/19 16:24:23) Patrick Dulebohn: Had to give you something to get your feet wet a bit first is all.
(08/19 16:24:24) Patrick Dulebohn grins
(08/19 16:24:26) Dr. Sara Blom: But also far more exciting. It’s an incredible piece of machinery
(08/19 16:24:30) Calum Traveler: it doesnt quite serve the purpose it once did, but it still gives us quite a bit of wisdom.
(08/19 16:24:30) EMM: Like the video games and novels, will give you some nice background on the things that have happened here
(08/19 16:24:48) Patrick Dulebohn: Agreed, EMM.
(08/19 16:25:05) Calum Traveler: History is doomed to repeat if we don’t learn from it.
(08/19 16:25:11) Calum Traveler: ive said that who knows how many times.
(08/19 16:25:17) Patrick Dulebohn: It’s very true.
(08/19 16:25:25) EMM: But, that’s of course if you have any free time, and with that wall project…I dunno…haha
(08/19 16:25:25) Jules Lavisham: That’s what I tell my students, anyway
(08/19 16:25:34) Dr. Sara Blom: Hmm, maybe I’ll see if I can find a spare moment to check it out
(08/19 16:25:40) Calum Traveler: but im cautiously optimistic that we’ve learned enough from before to avoid some of the same mistakes. 🙂
(08/19 16:25:41) Jules Lavisham: Occasionally they listen.
(08/19 16:26:06) Patrick Dulebohn: I’m sure Dr. Blom can manage both. She’s also very formidable and has been a huge help.
(08/19 16:26:08) EMM: with a touch of optimistic realism 🙂
(08/19 16:26:09) Calum Traveler hopes the universe doesn’t prove them wrong…
(08/19 16:26:09) Goon’i: History doesn’t repeat it rhymes.
(08/19 16:26:48) Calum Traveler: fair enough,
(08/19 16:26:52) Jules Lavisham: Some kind of nonsense verse, certainly
(08/19 16:26:54) Calum Traveler: atleast it doesnt Rime. 😛
(08/19 16:27:07) Meko chuckles
(08/19 16:27:08) Patrick Dulebohn laughs
(08/19 16:27:14) EMM: Oof
(08/19 16:27:15) EMM laughs
(08/19 16:27:17) Patrick Dulebohn: I see what you did there, Calum.
(08/19 16:27:21) Jules Lavisham groans
(08/19 16:27:21) Calum Traveler: im sorry, the joke couldnt be helped. XD
(08/19 16:27:29) Goon’i: Crystal clear on that point.
(08/19 16:27:30) Calum Traveler: im a sucker for word play like that.
(08/19 16:28:10) Patrick Dulebohn: Someday, I would like to visit Rime. Those crystals, if the stories are true, could come in handy.
(08/19 16:28:15) Calum Traveler: oh, for sure
(08/19 16:28:23) Calum Traveler: ive theorized a lot about how they work if they’re real.
(08/19 16:28:31) Calum Traveler: to be able to replicate the written word of a Descriptive Book?
(08/19 16:28:36) Calum Traveler: it’s a powerful tool, if real.
(08/19 16:28:47) EMM: scary powerful
(08/19 16:28:50) Goon’i: Perhaps a viewer that would let us look into the ages, would save on all that dangerous mucking about with maintainer suits.
(08/19 16:28:54) Calum Traveler: lets hope thats not any artistic license
(08/19 16:28:54) Patrick Dulebohn: Again, the Art…respect it.
(08/19 16:28:56) Patrick Dulebohn nods
(08/19 16:29:03) Calum Traveler: it could come in real handy, yeah.
(08/19 16:29:12) Dr. Sara Blom: Ah, now THOSE notes I did read!! Absolutely fascinating stuff. Resconance linking tech? We should talk sometime, Calum!
(08/19 16:29:13) Calum Traveler: viewing an age before linking to it could be really useful for safety.
(08/19 16:29:18) Patrick Dulebohn: Yes, particularly for preliminary surveys of Ages.
(08/19 16:29:32) Briggs: I’m needed on the surface, talk to you all later!
(08/19 16:29:36) Briggs waves goodbye
(08/19 16:29:40) EMM: and books that randomly appear when they aren’t suppsed to…
(08/19 16:29:41) Calum Traveler: later, briggs,
(08/19 16:29:41) Briggs (I’m on the surface, be back in a minute):
(08/19 16:29:45) Patrick Dulebohn: Thanks for your work today, Briggs!
(08/19 16:29:45) Dr. Sara Blom: Good luck, Briggs
(08/19 16:29:48) Meko: See you
(08/19 16:29:54) C.J.Herkeless: Goodbye Briggs. See you later !
(08/19 16:29:57) Calum Traveler: and sure, Dr. Blom, I’d love a chat about it sometime.
(08/19 16:30:21) Patrick Dulebohn checks the barriers again
(08/19 16:30:32) EMM: Still solid for now?
(08/19 16:30:34) Frodo: Shorah
(08/19 16:30:36) Calum Traveler: there’s a lot about the Art that amazes me with how it works. it’s very magical, in its own way.
(08/19 16:30:40) Meko: There’d still be a limit to what one could see with the crystals, only so many colours provided
(08/19 16:30:47) Boywhith: shorah Frodo 🙂
(08/19 16:30:52) Calum Traveler: well, that could just be a game abstraction,
(08/19 16:30:54) Dr. Sara Blom: This also ties into my research on the lattice, which seems to contain components that go beyond what the D’ni would usually consider regular linking tech… At least that’s my impression
(08/19 16:31:04) Calum Traveler: i can’t imagine those crystals only came in that same limited set of shapes,
(08/19 16:31:12) Meko: Yes hopefully more variables exist
(08/19 16:31:22) Jules Lavisham eyes up the barriers
(08/19 16:31:31) C.J.Herkeless drops a hammer
(08/19 16:31:32) Zekh Astram: Uh, I finally get to see Mr Dublebohn
(08/19 16:31:39) KrimzonGuard935 waves hello
(08/19 16:31:46) KrimzonGuard935 waves hello
(08/19 16:31:48) Goon’i: Other ages with crystaline structures surely exist. Perhaps with different properties.
(08/19 16:31:48) Calum Traveler: the whole KI network alone is something amazing, that’s for sure.
(08/19 16:31:53) KrimzonGuard935 waves hello
(08/19 16:31:54) Zekh Astram: Our inexpected hero, bringer of restoration
(08/19 16:31:59) Patrick Dulebohn: Hello Zekh.
(08/19 16:32:00) EMM: Understanding the lattice better could really give exponential variables
(08/19 16:32:12) Calum Traveler: and the other D’ni tech that works alongside it… like the GZ, or the Lattice…
(08/19 16:32:17) Dr. Sara Blom: That’s an excellent thought, Goon’i
(08/19 16:32:39) Patrick Dulebohn: On that note, I must be off again. Can I trust you all to respect the safety barriers that are here to protect you all?
(08/19 16:32:41) Calum Traveler: the fact that we can talk across Ages in real time alone is amazing in and of itself.
(08/19 16:32:42) Patrick Dulebohn grins
(08/19 16:32:50) Zekh Astram: You mean like before ?
(08/19 16:32:52) Calum Traveler: ill keep an eye out for any trouble makers while im here, patrick. 🙂
(08/19 16:32:53) C.J.Herkeless: Patrick?
(08/19 16:32:54) Thumbs up from Tehlrov K’hris
(08/19 16:33:03) EMM: Same here. Eyes and ears.
(08/19 16:33:10) C.J.Herkeless: Might if I come with you? I wanted to run a couple things by you.
(08/19 16:33:15) Dr. Sara Blom: I’ll stick around for a little while Pat, we’ll meet up topside later?
(08/19 16:33:19) Patrick Dulebohn: Just a little while longer and we will move those barriers. Just be patient.
(08/19 16:33:20) Meko salutes
(08/19 16:33:21) Zekh Astram: I heard people respect CONES more, or is it the other way around ?
(08/19 16:33:22) Boywhith: Yeah. We must wait until Friday.
(08/19 16:33:24) Patrick Dulebohn: Sure CJ. Usual place?
(08/19 16:33:26) Jules Lavisham: We’re sensible people, I’m sure no nonsense will ensue.
(08/19 16:33:39) Calum Traveler: Something something “All hail the one true cone”
(08/19 16:33:45) C.J.Herkeless: Absolutely.
(08/19 16:33:48) Calum Traveler: (Kudos if anyone recognizes that)
(08/19 16:33:51) Patrick Dulebohn: If it helps, you can name them!
(08/19 16:33:53) Patrick Dulebohn laughs
(08/19 16:34:08) Zekh Astram: Also yeah, can’t wait to make memes about the new Ages
(08/19 16:34:12) Patrick Dulebohn: Anyway, got to run. CJ, I’ll chat with you soon.
(08/19 16:34:13) Zekh Astram: You need someone for that
(08/19 16:34:15) Patrick Dulebohn waves goodbye
(08/19 16:34:19) Calum Traveler waves goodbye
(08/19 16:34:27) Tehlrov K’hris waves goodbye
(08/19 16:34:28) Meko: Shorah
(08/19 16:34:50) C.J.Herkeless: I’m off as well, then. It is truly inspiring to see so many explorers here. And Sara, Jules, thank you very, very much for your work.
(08/19 16:35:16) Dr. Sara Blom: Patrick has been so incredibly busy the past few weeks, I hope he makes sure to get some rest too
(08/19 16:35:26) Jules Lavisham: Quite alright, although I deserve literally none of the credit. I’ve only just arrived from the surface less than a day ago.
(08/19 16:35:27) Meko: I’ll second that thanks
(08/19 16:35:29) Dr. Sara Blom: My pleasure C.J., thanks for being here!
(08/19 16:35:34) Calum Traveler: oh, for sure, i can only imagine how tiring this work is.
(08/19 16:35:51) Calum Traveler: hope he can get some Zs after this.
(08/19 16:36:11) Jules Lavisham: Strictly here in an academic capacity. No plans for partaking of any intrigue or grand quests.
(08/19 16:36:24) Jules Lavisham: Very much behind me, thsoe days.
(08/19 16:36:24) Dr. Sara Blom: Me, too. He deserves it. His efforts have been mindbogling!
(08/19 16:36:28) Melis waves hello
(08/19 16:36:29) Meko: Good luck not falling into any adventures
(08/19 16:36:39) Melis: hi claidi
(08/19 16:36:43) Zekh Astram: What if adventure finds you ?
(08/19 16:36:44) Melis leans left
(08/19 16:36:47) Claidi Song leans right
(08/19 16:36:53) Calum Traveler: ah, yeah, in my experience adventures tend to happen when you least expect…
(08/19 16:36:58) Zekh Astram: Don’t go and pick up books falling from the sky..
(08/19 16:37:00) Jules Lavisham: Not while I have my strength, it wont…
(08/19 16:37:07) Claidi Song: Shorah all :))
(08/19 16:37:12) Calum Traveler: shorah *waves*
(08/19 16:37:13) aqua: Shorah Claidi 🙂
(08/19 16:37:17) Scharminius: hi Claidi 🙂
(08/19 16:37:18) Claidi Song: Is this a welcome committee?
(08/19 16:37:20) Scharminius: hi Adi 🙂
(08/19 16:37:24) Adi: YIIKES more people every time LOL
(08/19 16:37:25) Adi: HI
(08/19 16:37:30) Melis: hi Adi lol
(08/19 16:37:36) Adi: a stress committee!
(08/19 16:37:40) Claidi Song: Or, scare those who are comimg in to death?
(08/19 16:37:46) Claidi Song starts to laugh
(08/19 16:37:51) Melis: lol
(08/19 16:37:53) Calum Traveler: more of a ‘we accidentally gathered around the link in’ committee
(08/19 16:37:55) Jules Lavisham: Our formation does look a little sinister, doesn’t it
(08/19 16:37:56) KrimzonGuard935: I know I was scared
(08/19 16:37:56) Zekh Astram: Think about these poor fresh books, getting slapped by so many explorers wanting to link
(08/19 16:38:00) Tehlrov K’hris: yeah, a ring of people all around you as soon as you link lol
(08/19 16:38:01) Dr. Sara Blom: Jules, I’m glad I’m not the only one who’s relatively new!
(08/19 16:38:02) Dr. Sara Blom starts to laugh
(08/19 16:38:17) Calum Traveler: we’re all new at some point,
(08/19 16:38:21) EMM: it has been pretty funny to watch people link in to THIS
(08/19 16:38:25) Calum Traveler: and to everyone new, a “welcome to D’ni”
(08/19 16:38:31) Adi: yep
(08/19 16:38:36) Jules Lavisham: Hah. Well, I say new. Last time I was down here was over ten years ago.
(08/19 16:38:37) Dr. Sara Blom: Thanks Calum
(08/19 16:38:40) Christo: maybe we could make a circle around the imager device? make it look like a round table discussion.
(08/19 16:38:44) KrimzonGuard935: We should all wave to the next person that enters 🙂
(08/19 16:38:47) KrimzonGuard935 waves hello
(08/19 16:38:54) Zekh Astram: That’d be intimidating
(08/19 16:38:58) Zekh Astram: Let’s do it
(08/19 16:39:03) KrimzonGuard935: Lol
(08/19 16:39:04) Calum Traveler: lets try not to scare everyone haha
(08/19 16:39:11) Adi: too late 😛
(08/19 16:39:16) Dr. Sara Blom: Wow Jules! That’s a long time ago
(08/19 16:39:28) Goon’i: I’m from the UK it warms my heart , to see queues for linking books.
(08/19 16:39:32) Claidi Song: Could we all fit in a circle on the imager?
(08/19 16:39:39) Calum Traveler: probably not this many people,
(08/19 16:39:40) KrimzonGuard935 waves hello
(08/19 16:39:44) Jules Lavisham: Yep. The last proper stab at having a funded restoration down here
(08/19 16:39:45) Frodo waves hello
(08/19 16:39:45) Boywhith: I think so…
(08/19 16:39:47) NikiMay waves hello
(08/19 16:39:55) Calum Traveler: yeah, 2007-2008,
(08/19 16:40:03) Calum Traveler: just a little shy over 10 years now,
(08/19 16:40:14) Zekh Astram: Damn.. time flies
(08/19 16:40:19) Christo: Hard to beleive it’s bbeen that long.
(08/19 16:40:19) EMM: doesn’t seem like that long ago
(08/19 16:40:21) Calum Traveler: tell me about it.
(08/19 16:40:50) Meko: harder to keep track of time when you can’t see the sun down here
(08/19 16:40:57) Christo: To be honest I was very surprised to see MOUla still up and running.
(08/19 16:41:00) Boywhith: Well after midnight here… so time for me to leave. Have fun all!
(08/19 16:41:02) Calum Traveler: true, i suppose.
(08/19 16:41:02) Frodo: Speaking of long time, any other beta testers here?
(08/19 16:41:03) Christo: But glad that it is.
(08/19 16:41:05) Calum Traveler: have a good night, tom.
(08/19 16:41:09) Dr. Sara Blom: It’s easy to forget that so much happened before I discovered this place. Have most of you been around since that time?
(08/19 16:41:12) KrimzonGuard935 waves goodbye
(08/19 16:41:23) Zekh Astram: Anyway, I’m (and others too, for sure) am so grateful for all the restoration efforts you guys provided, it wasn’t waiting at this point
(08/19 16:41:24) Calum Traveler: ive been bopping around since 05 and 06
(08/19 16:41:28) Tehlrov K’hris: I’m sure most, but not me
(08/19 16:41:39) Meko: Not to brag, but yes, since the first days
(08/19 16:41:40) Calum Traveler: was aware of the restoration a bit before that, but was a bit too young to come wandering around down here at the time.
(08/19 16:41:41) Boywhith: Thanks, Calum :)))
(08/19 16:41:57) Calum Traveler: you could say ive grown up with this Cavern.
(08/19 16:42:00) Jules Lavisham: Are you involved in the current restoration efforts in some capacity Dr Blom?
(08/19 16:42:00) EMM: Yep. Beta here too.
(08/19 16:42:06) Zekh Astram: After the DRC left there was no proper direction left, no funds, no structure solid enough to carry any progress
(08/19 16:42:10) Frodo claps his hands
(08/19 16:42:10) Claidi Song: Come join the circle on the imager. lol
(08/19 16:42:11) Calum Traveler: it and its community have shaped me as much as ive shaped it.
(08/19 16:42:19) Dr. Sara Blom: That’s pretty incredible, Calum
(08/19 16:42:31) Zekh Astram: And it’s such a heavy mentle to pick up and push forward
(08/19 16:42:32) Jules Lavisham: I’m aware there’s some inittiative behind the recent talk of new ages, but I have no idea who is behind it
(08/19 16:42:38) Calum Traveler: i suppose so. 🙂
(08/19 16:42:48) Dr. Sara Blom: Zekh, if there was no structure, no funds, how did you all survive here and… why did you stay?
(08/19 16:42:48) Calum Traveler: im just happy to see things starting up again around here.
(08/19 16:43:00) Meko: Things felt a little stagnant without DRC but the explorers themselves kept things going…
(08/19 16:43:04) Calum Traveler: personally, a bit of maintenance, and a sense of duty.
(08/19 16:43:06) Zekh Astram: Oh I mean for the restoration
(08/19 16:43:16) Christo: I helped work on a few new Ages with a team of friends some years ago. They are now on the Deep Island shard.
(08/19 16:43:19) Meko: that said, definitely still excited for any kind of additional attention this place gets
(08/19 16:43:33) Calum Traveler: i wound up running a history night for a few years, someone else mentioned that earlier.
(08/19 16:43:38) Frodo: it is exciting
(08/19 16:43:45) Dr. Sara Blom: Ah yes I remember it being mentioned
(08/19 16:43:48) Zekh Astram: Survival.. I mean we have plenty of worlds to find what we need to get by.. and we’re not alone
(08/19 16:43:50) Calum Traveler: but it’s not something im exactly interested in picking back up again. it was tiring work.
(08/19 16:44:07) Dr. Sara Blom nods her head
(08/19 16:44:14) EMM: For me, was a sense of pride with what had been accomplished, the Journey we all took, how long my life has been a part of it. Just kept coming down and dusting things off 🙂
(08/19 16:44:15) Calum Traveler: and i dont exactly have the free time to be managing it like i did back in the day.
(08/19 16:44:33) Dr. Sara Blom: Surface obligations?
(08/19 16:44:36) Calum Traveler: yes,
(08/19 16:44:40) Calum Traveler: family obligations as well.
(08/19 16:44:42) Meko: and there is SO much dust down here
(08/19 16:44:50) KrimzonGuard935 waves hello
(08/19 16:44:52) Dr. Sara Blom starts to laugh
(08/19 16:45:00) Frodo: I have made some good friends here over the years. I have an emotional attachment to the cavern
(08/19 16:45:01) Adi leans left
(08/19 16:45:08) Zekh Astram: But I’ve been meaning to ask, Sara, Calum and you all
(08/19 16:45:09) Sussaro leans right
(08/19 16:45:15) Dr. Sara Blom: I can imagine that very well, Frodo
(08/19 16:45:22) Zekh Astram: Are you just a bunch of pals or does your initiative have a name ?
(08/19 16:45:30) Calum Traveler: me? haha, no, im not part of this
(08/19 16:45:38) Zekh Astram: You look the part though
(08/19 16:45:48) Calum Traveler: im just hanging around like you all. though its nice that you think that i could be
(08/19 16:45:55) Calum Traveler: im just returning like many of us are 🙂
(08/19 16:46:17) Dr. Sara Blom: Uhm, I don’t think there’s really a name? Patrick just sort of scrambled us together
(08/19 16:46:19) Calum Traveler: it’s been a long time coming, but its nice to be back.
(08/19 16:46:25) Meko: maybe DRRC… D’ni re-restoration council…
(08/19 16:46:34) Adi: yay
(08/19 16:46:38) Frodo: i like it
(08/19 16:46:40) soliwit: hi there, yay, busy!!
(08/19 16:46:42) Calum Traveler: i think someone threw out a name of Explorer Restoration yesterday,
(08/19 16:46:44) Adi nods her head
(08/19 16:46:48) Dr. Sara Blom: Maybe we should have a name though! Something cool, like… The Age Folks
(08/19 16:46:49) EMM: a couple of days ago people were throwing some names at him, but I don’t think any took
(08/19 16:46:57) Calum Traveler: put it up for vote,
(08/19 16:46:57) Meko: oh that has a nice ring to it
(08/19 16:46:58) Dr. Sara Blom: Okay, that’s not cool
(08/19 16:47:20) Christo: DEC = D’ni Expansion Council?
(08/19 16:47:26) Zekh Astram: I love that
(08/19 16:47:26) Calum Traveler shrugs
(08/19 16:47:36) Sussaro: yup
(08/19 16:47:39) Dr. Sara Blom: Maybe!
(08/19 16:47:40) Calum Traveler: lots of names, lots of choices.
(08/19 16:47:50) Meko: what you really have to consider is what will look best on a shirt
(08/19 16:47:51) Dr. Sara Blom: I like DRRC, if a bit on the nose
(08/19 16:47:53) Dr. Sara Blom starts to laugh
(08/19 16:47:56) Jules Lavisham: The People’s Front of D’ni?
(08/19 16:47:58) Meko grins
(08/19 16:48:08) Zekh Astram: Sounds like a broken mechanism, like the DRC when it ended
(08/19 16:48:15) Zekh Astram: DRRRRRC
(08/19 16:48:21) Meko laughs
(08/19 16:48:21) EMM: true, Meko. Always gotta take merchandising into consideration.
(08/19 16:48:36) Zekh Astram: Yeah, can’t wait for the T-shirts
(08/19 16:48:38) Dr. Sara Blom: Also, Patrick seems to have hope that DRC members may return one day. So let’s not take over their role just yet
(08/19 16:48:39) Tehlrov K’hris: If only we could think of an “A” word, we could make the acronym DARC
(08/19 16:48:51) Zekh Astram: Bahro wear XL, right ?
(08/19 16:48:59) Calum Traveler: well, if anyone from the DRC show up Friday, i suppose someone can ask them.
(08/19 16:49:11) Adi: If 😛
(08/19 16:49:12) EMM: must be hard for the Bahro…tall but slim.
(08/19 16:49:23) Calum Traveler: though last i’d heard from them they seemed content to just observe and let us do our own thing for a time.
(08/19 16:49:24) Scharminius: Tehlrov, D’ni-Aegura?
(08/19 16:49:25) Calum Traveler: but times change
(08/19 16:49:25) Jules Lavisham: Something with the initials AC/DRC
(08/19 16:49:39) Sussaro: to the orange ground can you see me
(08/19 16:49:41) Tehlrov K’hris: That sounds nice 🙂
(08/19 16:49:41) Meko: Would that be a positive meeting or a tense one, if an old DRC member popped in
(08/19 16:49:46) Zekh Astram: It takes some passion to invest and engage in the DRC, they had some really hard times but that passion could still be reignited
(08/19 16:49:57) Calum Traveler: who knows what we’ll get from the future. I certainly didn’t expect any of this to suddenly pop up when it did. 🙂
(08/19 16:50:08) Zekh Astram: I hope so, it would help them turn the page on the dark episodes
(08/19 16:50:17) Frodo: im just glad this is happening.
(08/19 16:50:23) Zekh Astram: Who doesn’t want to end on a victory ?
(08/19 16:50:26) Frodo: Name or no name
(08/19 16:50:27) EMM: yeah, this truly came out of nowhere. what a happy surprise.
(08/19 16:50:29) Dr. Sara Blom: I suppose the most difficult thing would be to get the members of the DRC back together again. Who knows where they all went?
(08/19 16:50:30) Christo: I had given up hope of new ages and content a long time ago. But I’m happy I was proven wrong.
(08/19 16:50:55) Meko: One would hope they’d still have their KIs on hand
(08/19 16:50:59) Zekh Astram: Are they really that low under the radar ? Out of shame maybe ?
(08/19 16:51:00) Calum Traveler: I think Engberg might be the hardest one to get back. truthfully i doubt we’ll see him again. The others might be easier.
(08/19 16:51:01) Tehlrov K’hris: It’s an honor for me to be here
(08/19 16:51:04) Meko: maybe not… literally on hand, but in their posession
(08/19 16:51:17) EMM: DRC seemed strained from the beginning. I can’t imagine too many of them wanting to come back. But the hope is always there.
(08/19 16:51:24) Calum Traveler: I think Watson’s probably kicking around watching us from somewhere.
(08/19 16:51:36) Zekh Astram: Watson will survive us all
(08/19 16:51:36) Dr. Sara Blom: Meko, if I know the lattice system at all, it doesn’t have infinite reach within an Age… So them having their KI might not be enough to reach them
(08/19 16:51:38) Jules Lavisham: Watson is most definitely studying our habits.
(08/19 16:51:56) Zekh Astram: He’s basically bearded Yeesha, don’t underestimate him
(08/19 16:52:06) Jules Lavisham: He’s probably got half a whiteboard filled up already.
(08/19 16:52:09) Meko: that’s a fair point, sadly, Doctor…
(08/19 16:52:14) Calum Traveler: gotta have those signal boosters to have wider KI range, right?
(08/19 16:52:23) Meko: Snail mail, then.
(08/19 16:52:52) Calum Traveler: still, i think the DRC likely have some way of contacting eachother. if one gets the message they might all get it, even if they can or can’t make it due to surface reasons.
(08/19 16:53:11) Zekh Astram: That is very reasonable to assume, yeah
(08/19 16:53:16) Meko: yes, I’m sure someone who’ll be here Friday will know someone who knows someone etc etc and they’ll hear
(08/19 16:53:24) Jules Lavisham: Right, I still haven’t adjusted to my cavern sleep cycle yet, so I need to crash.
(08/19 16:53:25) Meko: those who want in, and can, will come back I bet
(08/19 16:53:35) Calum Traveler: have a good night, Jules.
(08/19 16:53:37) EMM: Zandi can send them some smoke signals…
(08/19 16:53:39) Calum Traveler: rest well.
(08/19 16:53:40) Meko: leep well
(08/19 16:53:52) Tehlrov K’hris: enjoy your rest
(08/19 16:53:52) Zekh Astram: You have at least a shot at appealing to their curiosity
(08/19 16:53:53) Jules Lavisham: I have no doubt I’ll be seeing you all around. Looking forward to seeing what happens in the coming days.
(08/19 16:54:02) Zekh Astram: They invested too much to just ignore what’s happening next
(08/19 16:54:11) Jules Lavisham waves hello
(08/19 16:54:15) Jules Lavisham: …
(08/19 16:54:16) Dr. Sara Blom: Bye Jules, see you around!
(08/19 16:54:20) Zekh Astram: Rest well Jules
(08/19 16:54:31) Jules Lavisham waves goodbye
(08/19 16:55:08) Meko: yes… and maybe the rebranding- to a new name, or to no name- could help some come back with less possible nervousness
(08/19 16:55:30) Dr. Sara Blom: If members of the DRC to attend on Friday, I will definitely want to talk to them about the all the half-finished tech they left behind… Such a wealth of knowledge they must posess
(08/19 16:55:41) Calum Traveler: there definitely are some who aren’t sure about what’s going on or not. a DRC presence might help sooth them over a bit.
(08/19 16:55:51) Dr. Sara Blom: On that note, do you think that this Eeisha person will be there?
(08/19 16:55:53) Zekh Astram: And access devices.. like to Gahreesen
(08/19 16:56:01) Calum Traveler: Yeesha, and… well. that’s hard to say.
(08/19 16:56:09) Meko: I hope so…
(08/19 16:56:13) Calum Traveler: I dont think anyones heard from her directly in over 10 years.
(08/19 16:56:18) Calum Traveler: not since the last restoration ended.
(08/19 16:56:25) Dr. Sara Blom: Oh! I see
(08/19 16:56:34) Calum Traveler: if she shows up, it’d be both heartwarming and concerning.
(08/19 16:56:36) Tehlrov K’hris: I don’t know how sensitive the Yeesha subject is because I’m new
(08/19 16:56:43) EMM: if she pops up…I dunno…
(08/19 16:56:43) Zekh Astram: She might not approach by herself, but she probably is aware of what’s happening
(08/19 16:56:47) EMM: could go either way
(08/19 16:56:57) Calum Traveler: let’s just say that She didn’t sound hopeful on her return when she left.
(08/19 16:57:21) Calum Traveler: if she did return, or atleast sent us a message of some sort, well…
(08/19 16:57:28) Calum Traveler: i wouldnt know how to interpret it.
(08/19 16:57:30) Zekh Astram: You think she’s gone for good ? No business left in D’ni ?
(08/19 16:57:32) soliwit waves hello
(08/19 16:57:33) Meko: She’s very… concerned about D’ni as a concept, if that makes sense
(08/19 16:57:40) Christo: So when…if…Yeesha shows up that’s not a good thing?
(08/19 16:57:43) Zekh Astram: I mean.. eventually it would happen.. right ?
(08/19 16:57:47) Calum Traveler: it may be, it may not be
(08/19 16:57:52) Calum Traveler: it all depends on what news she brings with her.
(08/19 16:57:59) Meko nods
(08/19 16:58:01) Christo: Understood.
(08/19 16:58:02) Tehlrov K’hris: So she’s not 100% positive influence for us?
(08/19 16:58:08) EMM: And how she interprets OUR being back here.
(08/19 16:58:10) Calum Traveler: that’s debatable.
(08/19 16:58:17) Meko: that depends on where you stand personally
(08/19 16:58:24) Calum Traveler: some people back in the day thought she was a rule breaker
(08/19 16:58:31) Calum Traveler: others hero worshipped her a bit,
(08/19 16:58:45) Calum Traveler: personally i think she just got in way over her head with a lot of things,
(08/19 16:58:56) Calum Traveler: i wish her well, and i hope she’s safe, but… yeah.
(08/19 16:59:03) Calum Traveler: the longer we go without word the more worried i get.
(08/19 16:59:08) Tehlrov K’hris: I know a little bit about her, but didn’t assume that there were negative things about here. Silly of me.
(08/19 16:59:09) Frodo: i recall her being at odds with the DRC
(08/19 16:59:16) Zekh Astram: She would rather have D’ni left alone, because she thinks she has a special role in its future
(08/19 16:59:23) Zekh Astram: And trust isn’t something she gives lightly
(08/19 16:59:24) Calum Traveler: the DRC were really against her actions at first during the first restoration,
(08/19 16:59:33) Calum Traveler: during the time between they came around, though
(08/19 16:59:39) Meko: just as she was against a lot of the DRC’s actions
(08/19 16:59:39) Calum Traveler: the Relto books alone were worth it, i think.
(08/19 16:59:44) Frodo: did we not earn her trust?
(08/19 16:59:48) Calum Traveler: indeed, a bit of side splitting there.
(08/19 16:59:57) Tehlrov K’hris: This is an interesting viewpoint…. I should have thought of this point of view sooner.
(08/19 17:00:03) EMM: Yeah, and she just seemed to get a bit…over zealous, towards the end there
(08/19 17:00:22) Calum Traveler: given the amount of radio silence we’ve had from her just from 07 alone…
(08/19 17:00:29) Calum Traveler: im not sure what to really make of her continued silence,
(08/19 17:00:43) Christo: And of course I come along shortly after her last appearance.
(08/19 17:00:43) Calum Traveler: but i know she’d make atleast one apperance if she felt it necessary to assuage our concerns.
(08/19 17:00:47) Adi taps her foot
(08/19 17:00:49) Tehlrov K’hris: And here I am just blindly wearing a Journey T-Shirt. Maybe I should go change? lol
(08/19 17:00:50) Zekh Astram: Isolation and conflict made her tough, she’s legitimately powerful
(08/19 17:01:00) Adi starts to laugh
(08/19 17:01:04) Calum Traveler: many of us wore our journey shirts in solidarity during the time
(08/19 17:01:04) EMM: It would be so nice to see her come back with a fresh outlook
(08/19 17:01:11) Meko: I’m not sure she looked at the explorers as a group to totally trust or distrust, she gave it out individually based on- well,
(08/19 17:01:15) Meko: the journey you took
(08/19 17:01:18) Calum Traveler: indeed,
(08/19 17:01:19) Tehlrov K’hris: I thought it looked cool lol
(08/19 17:01:21) Zekh Astram: What, new Rivenese tendance ?
(08/19 17:01:31) Calum Traveler: there was a time she met us one on one, but… that’s gone now.
(08/19 17:01:44) Tehlrov K’hris: that’s neat.
(08/19 17:01:44) Umo: ahhhhhh
(08/19 17:01:54) Zekh Astram: I think.. she will be tempted to provide bits of guidance
(08/19 17:01:57) Calum Traveler: time marches on, and Yeesha’s got her own issues to deal with now.
(08/19 17:02:13) Tehlrov K’hris: must read up on history
(08/19 17:02:14) Calum Traveler: the most postive sign i can hope for is a new relto page some random place at some random time.
(08/19 17:02:24) Meko: that would be very sweet
(08/19 17:02:29) Frodo: ooo!
(08/19 17:02:38) Tehlrov K’hris: what’s our stance on Relto? Since everyone has them?
(08/19 17:02:42) EMM: that would be a nice little tap on the shoulder, wouldn’t it?
(08/19 17:02:42) Calum Traveler: but other signs of her return bring with them her own concerns.
(08/19 17:02:46) Zekh Astram: A way from her to say “I’m still here” ?
(08/19 17:02:54) Calum Traveler: Relto’s a reflection of our souls, as Yeesha put it,
(08/19 17:03:04) Calum Traveler: a fancy way of saying we can make it reflect us through the pages,
(08/19 17:03:13) Calum Traveler: but it saves us in most situations we need it.
(08/19 17:03:14) Meko: as well as a reflection of her own home
(08/19 17:03:18) Calum Traveler: as long as something else isn’t blocking it.
(08/19 17:03:22) Tehlrov K’hris: I guess it’s safe to use
(08/19 17:03:35) Calum Traveler: Relto books really are the safest thing we have in D’ni
(08/19 17:03:54) Raiga Olir: Hey all. been a LONG while.
(08/19 17:03:56) Meko: never heard of any relto troubles other than with Phil’s…
(08/19 17:04:00) Calum Traveler: not having one is liable to leave us being in a bit more danger…
(08/19 17:04:01) Frodo: Shorah
(08/19 17:04:01) Zekh Astram: So many nexus books lost in lava or bottomless pits
(08/19 17:04:02) Briggs: Shorah
(08/19 17:04:05) Calum Traveler: Yeah, Phil’s book got stolen from him,
(08/19 17:04:11) Zekh Astram: Not having them.. is risky
(08/19 17:04:14) Calum Traveler: still not sure how he survived that day, but, well, bahro. I guess.
(08/19 17:04:28) Claidi Song: Shorah Briggs :))
(08/19 17:04:30) Meko: I was going to say, not to be grim, but I thought he passed …
(08/19 17:04:35) Calum Traveler: he got a new one eventually, but, well.
(08/19 17:04:39) Calum Traveler: yeah, so did we for a while.
(08/19 17:04:45) Calum Traveler: he used to have his name on the memorial imager,
(08/19 17:04:48) EMM: welcome back, Briggs
(08/19 17:04:55) Briggs: Thanks 😀
(08/19 17:04:57) Calum Traveler: but then he proved rumors of his demise were… well… not exaggerated, at any rate.
(08/19 17:05:05) Frodo: Just noticed the lights are swinging
(08/19 17:05:13) Calum Traveler: i dont think we’ll ever know what happend to Phil. he certainly isnt going to tell us if we wind up seeing him.
(08/19 17:05:20) Meko: spooky
(08/19 17:05:32) Calum Traveler: Phil’s just that kind of guy, i think.
(08/19 17:05:39) Zekh Astram: He had a funky time with Yeesha, they went to Releeshahn and drank all night
(08/19 17:05:44) Zekh Astram: The end
(08/19 17:05:47) Calum Traveler: but he’s… well. there’s a reason some of us think he got high on the shrooms.
(08/19 17:05:48) Meko: everything okay over there, Doc..?
(08/19 17:05:57) Calum Traveler: but others think he just spent too long with the Bahro.
(08/19 17:06:07) Calum Traveler: its hard to say what the truth is, there.
(08/19 17:06:16) Dr. Sara Blom: Ah, sorry! I got distracted
(08/19 17:06:24) Calum Traveler: 🙂
(08/19 17:06:30) Tehlrov K’hris: Must be interesting what you’re looking at 🙂
(08/19 17:06:31) Calum Traveler: this place is certainly something.
(08/19 17:06:43) Meko: sorry didn’t mean to pry, just looked like you were scanning stuff, I got curious
(08/19 17:06:44) Dr. Sara Blom: Firemarbles…
(08/19 17:06:50) Dr. Sara Blom: I don’t get em
(08/19 17:06:59) Tehlrov K’hris: oh yeah, they’re fun
(08/19 17:07:00) Calum Traveler: i dont know if a lot of us do.
(08/19 17:07:02) Meko: Could do with some green ones……
(08/19 17:07:04) Dr. Sara Blom: I’m sure I will crack them soon enough
(08/19 17:07:10) Calum Traveler: different varrieties seem about,
(08/19 17:07:15) Calum Traveler: some safe to kick, others… not so.
(08/19 17:07:27) Zekh Astram: Yeah, firemarbles and all the other research
(08/19 17:07:29) Meko: I swear I used to have a green one on my relto but…??
(08/19 17:07:30) Calum Traveler: if you go by the lore, apparently you can use them to even light smoking pipes.
(08/19 17:07:33) Dr. Sara Blom: How do you know which are which, Claum?
(08/19 17:07:37) Frodo: they are like herding cats
(08/19 17:07:37) Dr. Sara Blom: Sorry, Calum
(08/19 17:07:43) Zekh Astram: Another thing to get from the DRC.. so it’s not lost progress
(08/19 17:07:50) Calum Traveler: hah, its fine, not the weirdest pronounciation ive heard XD
(08/19 17:08:07) Calum Traveler: honestly, i think it may have to do with size
(08/19 17:08:18) Christo: I disabled that relto page right after I got it…didn’t want to lose my marbles.
(08/19 17:08:20) Calum Traveler: if i remember right the ones you use for lighting things and powering things are very small
(08/19 17:08:32) Calum Traveler: like, small enough to fit in a pipe small,
(08/19 17:08:37) Frodo: I managed to get them into a corner in the hut
(08/19 17:08:41) Dr. Sara Blom: Right, that makes sense
(08/19 17:08:45) Calum Traveler: but ones that are more used for lights or for kicking around for fun are bigger,
(08/19 17:08:49) Zekh Astram: And they’re manufactured right, they don’t occur naturally
(08/19 17:08:51) Meko: I’d be a bit frightened to see a large one. The size of someone’s head? What if it blew up..
(08/19 17:08:57) Calum Traveler: i dont know if that’s the case,
(08/19 17:09:00) Calum Traveler: they may be, but…
(08/19 17:09:03) Calum Traveler: ive heard differing stories.
(08/19 17:09:07) Calum Traveler: that said i wouldnt be surprised
(08/19 17:09:11) Calum Traveler: Nara is manufactured
(08/19 17:09:17) Tehlrov K’hris: I think there’s a reason why the word “fire” is in the name firemarble
(08/19 17:09:20) Dr. Sara Blom: Just a thought, but do they all have the same energy output, just concentrated in a larger or smaller space, leading to different usage?
(08/19 17:09:25) Zekh Astram: Or it could go through a living organism to be processed
(08/19 17:09:33) Zekh Astram: Like pearls go through clams
(08/19 17:09:37) Calum Traveler: im not sure, ive never experimented with it personally,
(08/19 17:09:46) Meko: that’s an interesting thought…
(08/19 17:09:47) Zekh Astram: There are mushrooms and slugs around here
(08/19 17:10:03) EMM: gonna head up everyone. Talk to you all soon!
(08/19 17:10:04) Calum Traveler: if you go by what we’re told was on riven, five of them would power a massive complex spanning across several isalnds.
(08/19 17:10:11) Dr. Sara Blom: I know some guys on the team are working on restoring a whole bunch of marbles in one of the areas near here
(08/19 17:10:20) EMM: thanks again, Dr. Blom. Nice meeting you.
(08/19 17:10:25) Meko gasps
(08/19 17:10:27) Tehlrov K’hris: goodbye EMM
(08/19 17:10:28) Calum Traveler: night, EMM
(08/19 17:10:29) Dr. Sara Blom: Bye EMM, see you around!
(08/19 17:10:30) Zekh Astram: Oh, interesting, to what purpose ?
(08/19 17:10:36) Zekh Astram: Nighty night EMM
(08/19 17:10:49) Calum Traveler: id be interested in learning more about the marbles and how they work. they’re such a huge question mark still.
(08/19 17:11:02) Dr. Sara Blom: I believe in this case they are purely decorative, I believe they are colored
(08/19 17:11:15) Meko: Fingers crossed for green…
(08/19 17:11:22) Calum Traveler: likely just the safe-to-kick kind
(08/19 17:11:24) Dr. Sara Blom: I agree Calum, even though they seem to have been such a staple of D’ni civilization
(08/19 17:11:27) Zekh Astram: I must admit I’m amazed by the thought of firemarble mosaics
(08/19 17:11:35) Calum Traveler: now that’d be pretty.
(08/19 17:11:36) Zekh Astram: Shining in the dark
(08/19 17:11:46) Calum Traveler: spread a bunch of blue ones across a dark ceiling
(08/19 17:11:49) Dr. Sara Blom: I’ve love to see that, Zekh!
(08/19 17:11:49) Zekh Astram: Just don’t do pixel art, alright ?
(08/19 17:11:50) Calum Traveler: might get something like a night sky
(08/19 17:11:55) Tehlrov K’hris: Are they breakable?
(08/19 17:12:11) Meko: I’ve heard of one being broken on the surface
(08/19 17:12:15) Calum Traveler: i feel like some are, but again im not sure how you’d be able to tell.
(08/19 17:12:18) Briggs waves hello
(08/19 17:12:19) Zekh Astram: They do lose heat I think, but it takes time
(08/19 17:12:24) cileeeeeee waves hello
(08/19 17:12:28) Melis waves hello
(08/19 17:12:28) Calum Traveler: i think the ones we kick around in the hoods, i think, are probably built for durability
(08/19 17:12:30) Frodo waves hello
(08/19 17:12:38) Melis: hi cile
(08/19 17:12:42) Calum Traveler: power function ones either drain out or could be more fragile.
(08/19 17:12:50) Scharminius: hi cile
(08/19 17:12:52) cileeeeeee: Hello 🙂
(08/19 17:12:58) Zekh Astram: ..I wonder if they are somewhat alike Rime crystals.
(08/19 17:12:59) Melis leans right
(08/19 17:12:59) Calum Traveler: it’s definitely something interesting to think about.
(08/19 17:13:02) Scharminius leans left
(08/19 17:13:07) cileeeeeee leans left
(08/19 17:13:13) Meko: the one I heard of lost its light when broken, and was solid inside, which makes me wonder after the sound they make when kicked
(08/19 17:13:13) cileeeeeee leans right
(08/19 17:13:21) Dr. Sara Blom: A relation between firemarbles and the linking-crystals? That’s an interesting thought
(08/19 17:13:31) Meko gasps yet again
(08/19 17:13:34) Calum Traveler: the kickable ones make light “ting” noises
(08/19 17:13:34) soliwit (I’m on the surface, be back in a minute):
(08/19 17:13:39) Meko: very cool thought
(08/19 17:13:41) cileeeeeee leans left
(08/19 17:13:42) Claidi Song leans right
(08/19 17:13:43) Dr. Sara Blom: There’s some obvious possibilities for experiments there
(08/19 17:13:45) Dr. Sara Blom: Oh!
(08/19 17:13:58) Zekh Astram: Well, the firemarbled power linking books in some cases, right ?
(08/19 17:14:08) Dr. Sara Blom: Speaking of which, I need to check up on something I set running in Gahreesen
(08/19 17:14:13) Meko: The ‘ting’ is one of my favourite sounds… If KIs could have personal notification sounds I’d change mine to that
(08/19 17:14:13) Calum Traveler: Riven’s definitely a case study,…
(08/19 17:14:16) Zekh Astram: So the crystals.. we might be unto something here
(08/19 17:14:21) Calum Traveler: ah, good luck with the wall, Dr. Blom.
(08/19 17:14:24) Calum Traveler: and it was nice meeting you.
(08/19 17:14:28) Calum Traveler: welcome to d’ni 🙂
(08/19 17:14:28) Tehlrov K’hris: Well, it was very nice to meet you Doctor
(08/19 17:14:35) Meko: Good luck , stay safe!
(08/19 17:14:40) Frodo: Night
(08/19 17:14:40) Zekh Astram: Enjoy the science, Doc =)
(08/19 17:14:40) Briggs: Take care, Doc
(08/19 17:14:45) Zekh Astram: Take care
(08/19 17:15:03) Dr. Sara Blom: Thank you all! It was nice meeting you, good luck on your explorations
(08/19 17:15:13) Meko waves
(08/19 17:15:13) Calum Traveler: just a shame more of the Dome assembly didn’t wind up with the rest of the artefacts from Riven.
(08/19 17:15:13) Tehlrov K’hris: Thank you
(08/19 17:15:14) Melis: thank you dr sara blom
(08/19 17:15:18) Dr. Sara Blom waves goodbye
(08/19 17:15:21) Calum Traveler: same to you 🙂 happy exploring
(08/19 17:15:38) Claidi Song waves goodbye
(08/19 17:15:43) Melis waves hello
(08/19 17:15:45) Melis waves goodbye
(08/19 17:15:48) Calum Traveler: well. that certainly wasnt how i expected this evening to go.
(08/19 17:15:49) Melis: bye claidi
(08/19 17:15:54) Meko: I’m starstruck
(08/19 17:15:58) Scharminius leans right
(08/19 17:16:00) Claidi Song leans left
(08/19 17:16:07) Calum Traveler: that was certainly some way to make introductions.
(08/19 17:16:09) Zekh Astram: Haha, surprise science talk, just like that
(08/19 17:16:10) Frodo: I came late. Who is Dr Blom?
(08/19 17:16:11) Scharminius: bye Claidi
(08/19 17:16:32) Calum Traveler: Dr. Blom is someone working with patrick’s group on the new ages and the restoration working going on in the alcove
(08/19 17:16:43) Calum Traveler: new to D’ni, even.
(08/19 17:16:49) Frodo: Ah. Well bless her!
(08/19 17:17:00) Zekh Astram: She’s right though.. firemarbles, crystals, scarab ink.. it’s still unexplored
Afterwards, Dr. Sara Blom was observed in Gahreesen for a rather long time. (Still present at the time of my posting after editing this whole chatlog!)
