Patrick and Calum in the Kahlo Pub


(05/03 11:52:58) Calum Traveler: Oh, Shorah, Patrick,
(05/03 11:53:10) Wyl Thirsk: shorah all
(05/03 11:53:14) Patrick Dulebohn: Whew! So many stairs!
(05/03 11:53:28) Calum Traveler: there are quite a lot of them, yes
(05/03 11:53:39) Fweeps: Shorah and hello
(05/03 11:53:41) Patrick Dulebohn: I believe that’s what makes them “Great”.
(05/03 11:53:44) Calum Traveler: indeed
(05/03 11:53:50) Calum Traveler says hey
(05/03 11:53:53) Patrick Dulebohn: Hello there, Cal.
(05/03 11:53:54) Patrick Dulebohn waves hello
(05/03 11:54:27) Patrick Dulebohn: Actually, I could use a bit of help surveying Kahlo Pub if anyone is interested.
(05/03 11:54:30) Calum Traveler: sure,

[Migration to Pub from Top of Stairs]

(05/03 11:54:59) Patrick Dulebohn taps his foot
(05/03 11:55:17) Patrick Dulebohn: Yes…we definitely have to clear at least a little bit of this.
(05/03 11:55:33) Calum Traveler: agreed, i think i marked a few likely targets in my last report?
(05/03 11:55:54) Calum Traveler stumbles over the vault
(05/03 11:55:55) Patrick Dulebohn: Whew…definitely not as young as I used to be. That’s quite the climb.
(05/03 11:56:09) Calum Traveler: it’s a bit frustrating, yes
(05/03 11:56:50) Patrick Dulebohn: See, the GoMe Pub was much like this when we started.
(05/03 11:57:00) Calum Traveler: i wish i could’ve seen,
(05/03 11:57:09) Patrick Dulebohn: We had to clear out a LOT of rubble, particularly near the static imager with the info slides.
(05/03 11:57:21) Calum Traveler: you’d never know looking at it now
(05/03 11:57:49) Patrick Dulebohn: I’ve been thinking of making this a bit of a project here in the city. It’s been too long since someone has opened a part of Ae’gura.
(05/03 11:58:04) Calum Traveler: definitely a long term project, if we go through with it.
(05/03 11:58:10) Patrick Dulebohn: This would be a place to start…while also remaining respectful of what occured just outside.
(05/03 11:58:20) Calum Traveler: indeed.
(05/03 11:58:39) Calum Traveler: i think we could probably leave some of the larger chunks for extra seating
(05/03 11:59:10) Patrick Dulebohn: Ah, some rubble seating. We’re actually using rubble as a makeshift bookstand in Vothol Gallery.
(05/03 11:59:14) Calum Traveler looks around for a bit
(05/03 11:59:20) Calum Traveler: yes, ive seen XD
(05/03 11:59:24) Calum Traveler: its quite the look
(05/03 11:59:25) Patrick Dulebohn: Have you heard from Kelsei, Cal? I have a couple more bits of translation.
(05/03 11:59:42) Calum Traveler: yeah, she was busy with some family stuff this weekend, it sounded like
(05/03 11:59:45) Patrick Dulebohn: I’ve been knee deep in Serene’s snowy landscape for final prep.
(05/03 12:00:06) Patrick Dulebohn: Ah, good. Glad to hear she can make it up to the surface every so often. She needs a breather every now and then.
(05/03 12:00:07) Patrick Dulebohn grins
(05/03 12:00:10) Calum Traveler: I’ll text her to let her know you were looking for her.
(05/03 12:00:20) Patrick Dulebohn: Excellent. Thank you.
(05/03 12:00:21) Calum Traveler digs out phone and taps out a message…
(05/03 12:00:34) Patrick Dulebohn: Wow, you get reception down here? I’m impressed!
(05/03 12:00:36) Patrick Dulebohn laughs
(05/03 12:00:42) Calum Traveler: hey, im just piggybacking off of the Pub Wifi,
(05/03 12:00:59) Patrick Dulebohn: In any case, I think Serene is just about ready to go.
(05/03 12:01:10) Calum Traveler: yeah, Serene looked good last i checked
(05/03 12:01:16) Calum Traveler: definitely going to need a jacket though
(05/03 12:01:24) Calum Traveler: i swear the temperature dropped another ten degrees between visits.
(05/03 12:01:52) Patrick Dulebohn: I really hope that doesn’t mean another massive snowstorm. A light one would be OK, but the last ones were not pleasant.
(05/03 12:01:59) Calum Traveler: yeah
(05/03 12:02:00) Patrick Dulebohn: The trees normally keep most of the wind out though.
(05/03 12:02:14) Calum Traveler: ive noticed, not much wind chill
(05/03 12:02:17) Calum Traveler: just… chill.
(05/03 12:02:36) Patrick Dulebohn: Heh…I was surprised it was not an Eder…but much like the man who restored it, it’s unique.
(05/03 12:02:56) Patrick Dulebohn: Andy will definitely be missed when we place this Book in Chiso.
(05/03 12:02:56) Calum Traveler glances in the imager’s direction
(05/03 12:03:01) Calum Traveler: yeah.
(05/03 12:03:25) Calum Traveler: tis a shame he couldnt be here for this,
(05/03 12:03:28) Calum Traveler: any of them, really.
(05/03 12:03:44) Patrick Dulebohn: Well, Lontahv and Rustee are still out there somewhere. Just moved on.
(05/03 12:03:51) Patrick Dulebohn: They’re always welcome to come and visit though.
(05/03 12:03:58) Calum Traveler: yeah, i hope to see them around
(05/03 12:04:10) Calum Traveler: it’d be nice to just say hi, after seeing their work. 🙂
(05/03 12:04:32) Patrick Dulebohn: Lontahv was enthusiastic at least. He feels Tre’bivdil is in good hands.
(05/03 12:04:37) Calum Traveler ‘s phone buzzes…
(05/03 12:04:42) Calum Traveler: that’s good…
(05/03 12:04:46) Patrick Dulebohn: Still…I think we’d need him for any further restoration.
(05/03 12:04:53) Patrick Dulebohn: Get a message there?
(05/03 12:04:55) Patrick Dulebohn smiles
(05/03 12:04:56) Calum Traveler: yeah, Kelsei messaged back, she said to send the stuff to the usual place.
(05/03 12:05:06) Calum Traveler: she’ll pick it up later this afternoon
(05/03 12:05:35) Calum Traveler: yeah, I can definitely see that,
(05/03 12:05:44) Calum Traveler: hopefully we’ll get the whole bottom area fixed eventually
(05/03 12:05:52) Calum Traveler: but definitely not without his help.
(05/03 12:05:59) Patrick Dulebohn: Perfect. Let her know it’s not too urgent. Just a few more bits of Caltauc correspondence.
(05/03 12:05:59) Calum Traveler: until then, the old favorite standby, yeah?
(05/03 12:06:07) Patrick Dulebohn: Pretty much.
(05/03 12:06:17) Calum Traveler taps out a reply, muttering as they type… ‘Cal…tauc… correspon…dence…’
(05/03 12:06:27) Patrick Dulebohn: And how goes your work? Progress?
(05/03 12:06:34) Calum Traveler: yeah, a bit,
(05/03 12:06:43) Calum Traveler: speaking of standbys i still need to get some horse barriers in,
(05/03 12:06:53) Patrick Dulebohn: It’s grueling work, but you’ve made quite a few strides.
(05/03 12:07:02) Calum Traveler: Kelsei’s translations made the difference
(05/03 12:07:09) Calum Traveler: i’d just be lost without knowing what’s in that place.
(05/03 12:07:19) Patrick Dulebohn: I imagine you may be able to borrow a few from here if we’re able to clear better pathways. Otherwise, we should be able to lend you a few.
(05/03 12:07:27) Calum Traveler nods his head
(05/03 12:07:39) Patrick Dulebohn: The text does add much-needed context, that’s for sure.
(05/03 12:07:42) Calum Traveler: yeah, it’s not a rush until release, atleast.
(05/03 12:07:52) Calum Traveler: probably one of those last minute additions for safety.
(05/03 12:07:59) Patrick Dulebohn: Otherwise, we’d never know what that hole in the ceiling in Chiso was all about.
(05/03 12:08:01) Patrick Dulebohn laughs
(05/03 12:08:04) Calum Traveler starts to laugh
(05/03 12:08:14) Calum Traveler: That Hole is quite something!
(05/03 12:08:25) Calum Traveler: barely seems big enough to squeeze through, really.
(05/03 12:08:35) Patrick Dulebohn: Amazingly, not too much rain water leaking in. Just the occasional puddle after some storms.
(05/03 12:08:51) Calum Traveler: that’s good. should set up some buckets underneath to catch it sometime.
(05/03 12:08:57) Patrick Dulebohn: Weather there is relatively calm. Wish I could say the same for Tre’bivdil sometimes.
(05/03 12:09:02) Calum Traveler: yeah, waves.
(05/03 12:09:06) Patrick Dulebohn: Although on the whole, that Age is nice and sunny.
(05/03 12:09:10) Calum Traveler: very sunny!
(05/03 12:09:20) Patrick Dulebohn: Yep, massive swells. Difficult to know when they’ll come.
(05/03 12:09:28) Calum Traveler: hopefully we won’t see any new ones for a while.
(05/03 12:09:46) Calum Traveler: gotta wonder how close or big the moon is there to cause that, though.
(05/03 12:09:52) Patrick Dulebohn: It’s usually fine. The Age didn’t have any for years until recently.
(05/03 12:10:14) Calum Traveler: hopefully not a sign of instability.
(05/03 12:10:28) Patrick Dulebohn: Not sure! I imagine the planet has a bit of an irregular orbit, as does any natural sattelites.
(05/03 12:11:01) Calum Traveler: when I get a bit of time I’ll see about launching some sensor probes.
(05/03 12:11:11) Calum Traveler: hopefully we can be forewarned the next time something crops up.
(05/03 12:11:20) Patrick Dulebohn: It would definitely help.
(05/03 12:11:47) Calum Traveler: oh, Imagers
(05/03 12:11:51) Calum Traveler: that reminds me,
(05/03 12:11:52) Patrick Dulebohn looks around for a bit
(05/03 12:11:59) Patrick Dulebohn: Yes?
(05/03 12:12:10) Calum Traveler: im going to need some help uploading some data from a crushed KI i found in one of the collapsed tunnels,
(05/03 12:12:20) Calum Traveler: i think it might date back to the time of the Fall, but i havent been able to power it on.
(05/03 12:12:57) Calum Traveler: ah, and beyond that, i may need help restoring programming to the actual imagers in the place.
(05/03 12:12:58) Patrick Dulebohn: Hmm…Lyrositor used to be our go-to person on that. I can spare someone from the Vale mechanics to help you though.
(05/03 12:13:17) Calum Traveler: thanks. i’ll forward it along if i didnt already and forgot about it.
(05/03 12:13:37) Patrick Dulebohn: I should be able to spare even more people soon. We’re getting close on getting things working there.
(05/03 12:13:48) Thumbs up from Calum Traveler
(05/03 12:13:51) Patrick Dulebohn: Seems it’s an entire network of sorts around the whole area. For what, we’re not sure yet.
(05/03 12:14:12) Calum Traveler: yeesh… hopefully the answers’ll reveal themselves
(05/03 12:14:24) Patrick Dulebohn: We’ve unearthed a ton of wires branched out from the main machine.
(05/03 12:14:37) Calum Traveler: that sounds like a lot,
(05/03 12:14:50) Calum Traveler: it seems rare for D’ni tech to be hard wired like that, but, then again
(05/03 12:14:53) Patrick Dulebohn: Indeed. Definitely not your run of the mill decorative statue as we’ve seen previously.
(05/03 12:14:58) Calum Traveler: we have to slot our KIs for the Nexus terminals.
(05/03 12:15:21) Calum Traveler: to think our theorizing all those years would actually pan out in some way in a place none of us expected. XD
(05/03 12:15:22) Patrick Dulebohn: There’s a lot about the Age that’s confusing the heck out of us…but we’re getting closer to the truth.
(05/03 12:15:31) Patrick Dulebohn: Exactly!
(05/03 12:15:34) Calum Traveler: a mechanized statue… crazy. hah!
(05/03 12:15:48) Patrick Dulebohn: Does make me wonder about the one in Eder Kemo too.
(05/03 12:15:50) Patrick Dulebohn shrugs
(05/03 12:15:52) Calum Traveler shrugs
(05/03 12:15:59) Calum Traveler: im not gonna tear that thing apart
(05/03 12:16:07) Calum Traveler: ive had enough of that on the Island.
(05/03 12:16:13) Calum Traveler: too many near shocks from half powered systems.
(05/03 12:16:25) Patrick Dulebohn: Plus, I’m sure the DRC would have found something years ago there. It was one of their first restored Ages, I believe.
(05/03 12:16:30) Calum Traveler: indeed,
(05/03 12:16:46) Calum Traveler: of course, you never know with Kemo,
(05/03 12:16:56) Calum Traveler: that place seems to have a lot of secrets still left untold…
(05/03 12:17:02) Patrick Dulebohn nods his head
(05/03 12:17:15) Calum Traveler still can’t believe some of the blatant imagery there…
(05/03 12:17:24) Patrick Dulebohn: Alright my friend. I need to grab my city Links for the KI and head back to supervise structural additions to Vothol.
(05/03 12:17:29) Calum Traveler: alright 🙂
(05/03 12:17:39) Patrick Dulebohn: I’ll see you later!
(05/03 12:17:41) Patrick Dulebohn salutes
(05/03 12:17:43) Calum Traveler: ill see ya later
(05/03 12:17:44) Calum Traveler waves goodbye
(05/03 12:18:03) Calum Traveler: ill wait by the tent if anyone needs help, I think.
(05/03 12:19:05) …Chat.log stopped.
