D’ni Day of Dancing + Jules Visit

Today is the D’ni Day of Dancing. Music Broadcasts by MAX and FIL are running today! Gatherings are happening all over the Cavern today!

About 19-20 of us in GOME pub as I’m writing this r/n. I know there are groups hanging out elsewhere though.


Jules Lavisham visited the GoMessengers Pub this evening.

Jules Lavisham visited the Pub this evening to share some drinks and find someone to do a Pellet drop share. Chatlog provided for posterity, because there was some lively discussion about the Pods from the gathered group.

(09/03 17:01:18) Nosila: ha ha
(09/03 17:01:21) Melis starts to laugh
(09/03 17:01:22) Jules Lavisham: Evening, Cal. How goes it?
(09/03 17:01:27) Max: oh… now one I got from Snickuster, played for her, where she might be Exploring…
(09/03 17:01:30) Calum Traveler: doin alright, i suppose
(09/03 17:01:39) Calum Traveler: little tired, but alright.
(09/03 17:01:48) Calum Traveler: its been a better day than some recent ones ^^;
(09/03 17:02:05) Calum Traveler: (Oh I KNOW this song! XD nice choice max)
(09/03 17:02:14) Max bows
(09/03 17:02:19) Hander: i think everyone does
(09/03 17:02:22) Max: grazias
(09/03 17:02:23) Nosila: you’d better be dancing then!
(09/03 17:02:29) Jules Lavisham: Good to hear it’s on the up and up.
(09/03 17:02:34) Calum Traveler: ill settle for tapping my foot 😛
(09/03 17:02:34) westar (I’m on the surface, be back in a minute):
(09/03 17:02:38) Melis: Hi wes
(09/03 17:02:43) westar: hey melis
(09/03 17:02:51) Jules Lavisham: Hows the leg/
(09/03 17:02:54) Nosila: ha ha… a foot tap is perfectly ok…
(09/03 17:03:00) Jules Lavisham: ?
(09/03 17:03:06) Nosila: or even the odd nod
(09/03 17:03:17) Calum Traveler: legs doing fine, though bruised.
(09/03 17:03:34) Calum Traveler: not as nearly as sore as it had been. ^^
(09/03 17:03:38) Max: give him a stiff whisky and you’ll get him dancing
(09/03 17:03:47) Max: legs hurting or not
(09/03 17:04:04) Calum Traveler: 😛 i dont drink the hard stuff,
(09/03 17:04:12) Calum Traveler: now get me a hotchocolate and ill be fine haha
(09/03 17:04:19) Melis: Yum
(09/03 17:04:22) Melis: Thats whats missing
(09/03 17:04:30) Jules Lavisham takes a generous swig from a hipflask
(09/03 17:04:53) Max: don’ have those in the track list, sorry.. (snickers)
(09/03 17:05:06) Max: chocolate?
(09/03 17:05:08) Hander: how you call a thermos (?)
(09/03 17:05:21) Nosila: yep… got some tea?
(09/03 17:05:24) Melis: no more coffee for me, unless I want to be up til dawn
(09/03 17:05:27) Calum Traveler: i am seriously considering starting a bit of restoration work on an old pod office i’d worked on years ago, but never really got anywhere with it.
(09/03 17:05:30) Melis: Tea is better, yes
(09/03 17:06:00) Calum Traveler: been looking at the resources for actually doing the work on it. could be fun. though definitely an ‘in my spare time’ thing.
(09/03 17:06:15) Hander: well, things are shifting toward prodigy
(09/03 17:06:28) Jules Lavisham: Oh really? Sounds fun!
(09/03 17:06:32) Cpt.Jericho: Considering the map in the museum there should be a lot of pods we haven’t seen yet
(09/03 17:06:34) Jules Lavisham: City based?
(09/03 17:06:35) Max: anybody seen Mister Cloak here this evening…?
(09/03 17:06:40) Calum Traveler: Pod 12, technically.
(09/03 17:06:44) Nosila: no fires in here thanks
(09/03 17:07:04) Hander: Pod 12 aren’t opened for explorers yet
(09/03 17:07:04) Calum Traveler: i went out and explored out there for a while a few years ago, found it just tumbled off the cliff it was supposed to be attached to.
(09/03 17:07:06) Cpt.Jericho: Also, if someone could fix the light in Tetsonot… much apprechiated
(09/03 17:07:14) JulyFT: anyone here remember escape the age?
(09/03 17:07:15) Hander: * isn’t
(09/03 17:07:23) Calum Traveler: i dont think the DRC would ever touch the place after that,
(09/03 17:07:45) Calum Traveler: grounds also a bit unstable around there. had a rock shelf colapse and a recent lava spill not too long ago.
(09/03 17:07:53) Jules Lavisham: I don’t know, the H&S nightmare of Tetsonot has started to grow on me a bit.
(09/03 17:08:10) Max: now… a tune about MYST… (geddit… no?) for Mister Cloak
(09/03 17:08:12) Cpt.Jericho: H&S nightmare=
(09/03 17:08:14) Cpt.Jericho: ?
(09/03 17:08:16) Calum Traveler: still, the pod itself seems structurally intact, even if the insides got all torn up.
(09/03 17:08:20) Jules Lavisham: Know a few people up top who I wouldn’t mind leaving there…
(09/03 17:08:25) Jules Lavisham: Health and Safety
(09/03 17:08:46) Cpt.Jericho: Hm, it’s not more dangerous than Negilahn
(09/03 17:08:55) Hander: Tetsonot feels like it’s a bit under water
(09/03 17:08:59) Calum Traveler: im definitely going to try and shore up the walls if i commit to restoring the place
(09/03 17:09:07) Cpt.Jericho: Tetsonot must be underwater
(09/03 17:09:18) Calum Traveler: but that pod is stuck on its side. no way im ever lodging that thing upright without a lot of heavy equipment and no way to get it there
(09/03 17:09:19) Hander: i don’t think so
(09/03 17:09:24) Jules Lavisham: Probably an idea. Don’t know what might try to get in.
(09/03 17:09:28) Calum Traveler: Tetsonot is pretty much underwater, that’s for sure.
(09/03 17:09:29) Cpt.Jericho: There is a constant stream leaking in from the top
(09/03 17:09:38) JulyFT: Max: who/what is this?
(09/03 17:09:39) Calum Traveler: can feel the pressure change on linking
(09/03 17:09:42) Hander: originally it was above water
(09/03 17:10:01) Cpt.Jericho: Dude, a leak above your head means there’s water
(09/03 17:10:15) Max: it’s Eivor… from Faroe Islands, July
(09/03 17:10:17) Root Beer Redux: Hi, Cap’n
(09/03 17:10:24) Hander: i mean, that this pod went fubar
(09/03 17:10:26) Cpt.Jericho: Hi Root
(09/03 17:10:31) Max: nordic mystic
(09/03 17:10:38) Calum Traveler: i think the area for pod 12 was meant to be observed for the geothermal stuff originally.
(09/03 17:10:49) Malaclypse: Evenin’ all 🙂
(09/03 17:10:53) JulyFT: thanks, nice stuff
(09/03 17:10:58) Calum Traveler: it makes more sense to pluck a pod on the edge of a caldera than an oasis, id think.
(09/03 17:10:58) Malaclypse: Public Service Spam: Sunday from 1300 KI time, Radio Free D’ni will present Rock Humour!
(09/03 17:11:02) Nosila: Hi again Mal 🙂
(09/03 17:11:03) Cpt.Jericho: Ah, the man with the beer has arrived
(09/03 17:11:04) Max: I like it a lot
(09/03 17:11:06) Nosila: and RB 🙂
(09/03 17:11:11) Hander: are there 25 pods in total?
(09/03 17:11:23) Root Beer Redux: Hi, Nosila
(09/03 17:11:26) Calum Traveler: thats the assumption
(09/03 17:11:39) Calum Traveler: though theres no telling for sure if there are other pod worlds that carry the numbers up
(09/03 17:11:42) Hander: music is no more?
(09/03 17:11:47) Cpt.Jericho: At least that’s what the map shows
(09/03 17:11:57) Calum Traveler: map doesnt even show all 25.
(09/03 17:12:04) Max: oh… you think God could make a good DJ…?
(09/03 17:12:16) Max: one suggestion by Melis!
(09/03 17:12:30) Max: very good one at that!
(09/03 17:12:35) Hander: 6, 13, 18, and 25
(09/03 17:13:30) Jules Lavisham: Any kind of deity I would recognise needs to be down with the Hawkwind.
(09/03 17:13:37) Cpt.Jericho: Anyway, the only mostly intact pod is Dereno
(09/03 17:13:43) Calum Traveler: that it is,
(09/03 17:13:52) Hander: agreed
(09/03 17:13:54) Calum Traveler: Negilahn’s cracked, Payiferen’s shot up, Tetsonot’s sunk.
(09/03 17:14:03) Cpt.Jericho: Yep
(09/03 17:14:17) Calum Traveler: and pod 12, if i can ever find a name for it, fell off the cliff.
(09/03 17:14:18) Calum Traveler starts to laugh
(09/03 17:14:26) Cpt.Jericho: But the funny thing in Dereno is, that the ice isn’t made of water
(09/03 17:14:37) Calum Traveler: maybe ill call it humpty dumpty? 😛
(09/03 17:15:03) Calum Traveler: (thats actually a joke, i dont wanna invoke the wrath of the fairy tail gods)
(09/03 17:15:03) Root Beer Redux (I’m on the surface, be back in a minute):
(09/03 17:15:14) Hander: Calum, have you ever seen animals on ice?
(09/03 17:15:14) Calum Traveler: (or the nursery rhymes either for that matter)
(09/03 17:15:24) Cpt.Jericho: I didn’t know fairys had tails
(09/03 17:15:26) Max: ah…
(09/03 17:15:31) JulyFT: maybe the water is warmer than freezing, but the air is cold enough to keep the top frozen?
(09/03 17:15:32) Calum Traveler: tale tail whatever
(09/03 17:15:39) Calum Traveler: on the surface or in dereno?
(09/03 17:15:45) Calum Traveler: if dereno, no,
(09/03 17:15:46) JulyFT: the tail will tell the tail
(09/03 17:15:50) JulyFT: tale*
(09/03 17:15:55) JulyFT: so much for being clever, heh
(09/03 17:16:00) Cpt.Jericho: No, July, the “ice stars” in Dereno only have five rays
(09/03 17:16:08) Cpt.Jericho: Water would be six rays
(09/03 17:16:09) Max: Clever Trevor..
(09/03 17:16:10) Jules Lavisham: Fairy’s have attitudes, I can tell you that for nowt.
(09/03 17:16:17) Calum Traveler: though i know they existed at some point, some poor DRC guy saw some creatures dead out on the ice back in the year.
(09/03 17:16:18) Hander: water is always warmer. there’s even a problem of 4 degrees Celsius
(09/03 17:16:29) Calum Traveler: year 07*
(09/03 17:16:34) Max: woo oh oh…
(09/03 17:16:40) Jules Lavisham: And a very literal take on contract law.
(09/03 17:16:42) Calum Traveler: as for on the surface, i cant really recall.
(09/03 17:16:50) Calum Traveler: yeah, i dont wanna deal with the Fae either,
(09/03 17:17:12) Calum Traveler: scarier than the Bahro, those lot. lol
(09/03 17:17:12) Cpt.Jericho: Cal, look at the window of Dereno, the ice stars have five rays, not six
(09/03 17:17:13) JulyFT: ah, okay, I see what you meant. I never got super familiar with Negilahn’s pods
(09/03 17:17:16) Jules Lavisham: Use to travel with someone who kept an iron horseshoe on hand for that exact reason.
(09/03 17:17:24) Cpt.Jericho: Can’t be water
(09/03 17:17:25) Calum Traveler: ice rays? the spiky towers?
(09/03 17:17:35) Cpt.Jericho: No, ice flowers
(09/03 17:17:41) Cpt.Jericho: on the windows
(09/03 17:17:49) Calum Traveler: OH. huh
(09/03 17:17:54) Calum Traveler: five sides instead of six?
(09/03 17:18:01) Cpt.Jericho: Yes
(09/03 17:18:08) Malaclypse rolled 3d5 with a result of [5, 1, 1] for a total of 7.
(09/03 17:18:18) Calum Traveler: i dunno whether to blame the D’ni on that or the sheer randomness of the tree of posibility
(09/03 17:18:40) Hander: i think Tetsonot is the perfect age to invite a girl in
(09/03 17:18:46) JulyFT: answer: both
(09/03 17:18:47) Cpt.Jericho: No, water isn’t that random Cal
(09/03 17:18:55) Calum Traveler: wonder what kind of chemical compound it is if it isnt water,
(09/03 17:18:56) Max keeps playing on his own…
(09/03 17:19:08) Calum Traveler: i didnt say it was water, Jericho. 😛
(09/03 17:19:28) Calum Traveler: i was just saying idk if i should blame the pattern of five sides on the D’ni writer, or the randomness of the descriptive book selecting the age
(09/03 17:20:01) IwonK: or the graphic designer? 😛
(09/03 17:20:03) Calum Traveler: cause if it was written intentionally, then the D’ni probably know some water-like substance that forms five sided crystals instead of six.
(09/03 17:20:30) Calum Traveler: but then again we’ve seen Riven have water that avoids heat, so… it could just be a random-of-the-Art thing.
(09/03 17:20:41) Calum Traveler shrugs
(09/03 17:21:01) Calum Traveler: still, interesting thing about dereno. didnt notice that before about the sides thing
(09/03 17:21:05) Calum Traveler: bears investigation i guess.
(09/03 17:21:18) Malaclypse: Calum, the heat-avoiding behaviour of the Riven water is due to a bacterium that is highly concentrated in there.
(09/03 17:21:24) Calum Traveler: yes, yes, i know.
(09/03 17:21:30) Max: hey guys.. let’s Resurrect the Pod Parties…?
(09/03 17:21:31) Calum Traveler: i was just saying… sighs
(09/03 17:21:35) Calum Traveler: nevermind
(09/03 17:21:36) Malaclypse: Gehn’s notes and the experiment in his lab show that.
(09/03 17:21:41) Melis: Pod party sounds cool
(09/03 17:21:41) JulyFT: pod parties?
(09/03 17:21:44) Max: you don’t even have to have any music…
(09/03 17:22:06) Calum Traveler: i was just making a point that water can do freaky thing because of the Art’s inherent randomness at times.
(09/03 17:22:12) Calum Traveler: i cant imagine Gehn wrote the water to be heat repulsive.
(09/03 17:22:21) Max: Alien use to arrange those..
(09/03 17:22:38) IwonK: it was his 5th age, he could’ve been experimenting
(09/03 17:22:40) Max: play music… and we’d catch 3 Portals in a row
(09/03 17:23:13) Calum Traveler: pod parties would be a blast to see again.
(09/03 17:23:33) Korov’ev: unless the crystals are deposits of something in the water
(09/03 17:23:45) Calum Traveler: good point
(09/03 17:23:56) Melis: Hi cile
(09/03 17:23:58) Melis: Hi Malim
(09/03 17:23:59) Calum Traveler: do we know of anything that forms 5 sided crystals when dissolved in water?
(09/03 17:24:04) Max: now we can use a Bot to get to a Pod (geedit?)
(09/03 17:24:10) JulyFT: Shorah cileeee
(09/03 17:24:12) cileeeeeee: Hello everyone 🙂
(09/03 17:24:13) IwonK: 😀
(09/03 17:24:17) Calum Traveler: shorah cilee
(09/03 17:24:23) Jules Lavisham: Hi Cilee
(09/03 17:24:27) Malim Praedari: Hey everyone
(09/03 17:24:45) Calum Traveler finds it amusing the conversation has hovered around the pods for this long X)
(09/03 17:24:46) PodHopper: shorah 🙂
(09/03 17:24:54) cileeeeeee waves hello
(09/03 17:25:02) Malaclypse: Time for me, I’m afraid…
(09/03 17:25:04) Max: hello hello
(09/03 17:25:05) Malaclypse waves goodbye
(09/03 17:25:07) Calum Traveler: later, mal,
(09/03 17:25:09) Melis: Night Mala
(09/03 17:25:11) Malaclypse: Public Service Spam: Sunday from 1300 KI time, Radio Free D’ni will present Rock Humour!

(09/03 17:25:13) Jules Lavisham: Seeya Mal.
(09/03 17:25:15) Malim Praedari waves goodbye
(09/03 17:25:15) Malim Praedari: bye mala
(09/03 17:25:16) Malaclypse goes “foomp!”
(09/03 17:25:18) cileeeeeee: bye mala
(09/03 17:25:31) Max: for this evenings music, tune in to the Stream at.. http://www.urutunes.com/max ..// OR //.. maxdj.caster.fm
(09/03 17:25:45) Jules Lavisham: I won’t be long either, just stopped for a quick drink. Good to see the place getting busier whenever I see it.
(09/03 17:25:47) cileeeeeee: Yep, have it on 🙂
(09/03 17:25:57) IwonK: gotta go 🙂 see you all later 🙂
(09/03 17:25:58) Max: neat
(09/03 17:26:04) Root Beer Redux leans right
(09/03 17:26:04) cileeeeeee leans left
(09/03 17:26:06) Melis: Bye IwonK
(09/03 17:26:21) Jules Lavisham: I was looking to see if I could borrow someone for five minutes to do a pellet drop in the bahro cave.
(09/03 17:26:21) cileeeeeee: Lag g g g g y
(09/03 17:26:24) Calum Traveler: 🙂
(09/03 17:26:27) Calum Traveler: sure i dont mind

(09/03 17:26:41) Calum Traveler: i need to go do my own pellets soon anyways
(09/03 17:26:41) Root Beer Redux: Time for me to go too.
(09/03 17:26:41) Max: a bit, cile… a bit
(09/03 17:26:46) Melis: Night RB
(09/03 17:26:49) Root Beer Redux: Goodnight, all.
