(12/03 12:39:13) Chat.log started…
(12/03 13:00:17) Calum Traveler: ALRIGHT, welcome to the the December All Guilds Meet- the last AGM for 2022. It’s been a long year with some interesting twists and turns, for sure. Maybe not quite as eventful in some regards as some of us wanted, maybe a bit more eventful in other regards than some of us wanted, but it’s certainly been an eventful year.
(12/03 13:00:42) Calum Traveler: we’ve had Game Updates, and Mysterium, and Cyan being teases about upcoming releases…
(12/03 13:01:19) Calum Traveler: but before we get into the news, the usual rules
(12/03 13:01:26) Calum Traveler: dont press the blue button
(12/03 13:01:31) Night-Tripper: rules rules rules
(12/03 13:01:32) My’key: aww
(12/03 13:01:37) Calum Traveler: keep chatter to a minimum while the speakers are talking,
(12/03 13:01:58) Doobes: (you can always press the blue button after the meeting)
(12/03 13:02:01) Calum Traveler: keep /clap to a minimum and only when speakers are heading off stage,
(12/03 13:02:03) judyg must suppress the need to press!!!! Gaaaa!
(12/03 13:02:12) Murry: jtrigg
(12/03 13:02:16) Murry: hi
(12/03 13:02:27) Calum Traveler: questions for the speakers can be sent to ME in DM, or withheld until the question portion of each speaker’s section
(12/03 13:02:41) Calum Traveler: questions may be skipped for time.
(12/03 13:02:46) Dni_seeker 5 claps his hands
(12/03 13:02:46) Dni_seeker 5: always takes up a ton of space
(12/03 13:02:55) Dni_seeker 5: the clapping
(12/03 13:02:56) Calum Traveler: if you’re here for the first time, AWESOME
(12/03 13:03:01) Calum Traveler: there’s no better time than to join us
(12/03 13:03:11) My’key is awesome
(12/03 13:03:17) My’key: knew it
(12/03 13:03:19) Calum Traveler: if you’re a returning member of the community coming back, welcome back 🙂
(12/03 13:03:21) Calum Traveler: glad to see you
(12/03 13:03:35) Calum Traveler: and if you’re a longtime friend, good to see you again 😉
(12/03 13:03:47) Calum Traveler: before i begin some general announcements and reminders
(12/03 13:04:10) Calum Traveler: again, I’m just the temporary host for the AGM here, and the role is still technically empty after Korov’ev has stepped down from moderating.
(12/03 13:04:45) Calum Traveler: i dont mind doing it, but if someone else has inclinations of stepping up, please dont hesitate to talk with me after,
(12/03 13:05:26) Calum Traveler: a reminder for those who are just newly dabbling with the opensource game code, if you’re using internal client trickery, the best places for that are private, personal owned instances, or bot-owned magic areas,
(12/03 13:05:55) Calum Traveler: we all love good magic funtimes
(12/03 13:06:05) Calum Traveler: but there’s times and places for that 😉
(12/03 13:06:46) Calum Traveler: moving on, there’s only one small thing from Mysterium for this month
(12/03 13:06:52) Calum Traveler: and that’s this month’s Creativity Prompt!
(12/03 13:06:55) Calum Traveler: “Endings”
(12/03 13:07:30) Calum Traveler: Cyan has begun their LEXCEMBER posting spree for December as well
(12/03 13:07:52) Calum Traveler: for those unaware, Lexcember is short for “Lexicon December” or something similar to that,
(12/03 13:08:11) Calum Traveler: it’s a month where communities with constructed languages post words from those languages
(12/03 13:08:22) Calum Traveler: last year, Cyan held a whole month of newly released D’ni words
(12/03 13:08:33) Calum Traveler: this year, they seem to be alternating between D’ni and Rivenese,
(12/03 13:08:42) Calum Traveler: we’ve had two new D’ni words, and two new Rivenese words!
(12/03 13:08:59) Calum Traveler: you can find the postings for these on Cyan’s twitter page
(12/03 13:09:16) Calum Traveler: https://twitter.com/cyanworlds
(12/03 13:10:05) Calum Traveler: speaking of December goodies, we have our final Q4 update for 2022 scheduled to release to MOULa in the next twoish weeks,
(12/03 13:10:31) Calum Traveler: its not too big of a thing- some delays of the IRL varriety and of the development varriety happened,
(12/03 13:10:40) Calum Traveler: a lot of us were worn out after the Q2 2022 update as well
(12/03 13:10:51) Calum Traveler: so we’ve taken things slow and steady to keep our heads cool,
(12/03 13:11:00) Doobes: We’ve been hitting things pretty hard for two years now, after all. 😉
(12/03 13:11:05) Calum Traveler: that said there should be some spiffy new shinies to find!
(12/03 13:11:21) Calum Traveler: our good friend Doobes here has worked hard to bring Ahnonay Cathedral up to a spiffy new shine
(12/03 13:11:30) Doobes nods
(12/03 13:11:32) judyg ears perk up
(12/03 13:11:47) Chemyst: the statue level?
(12/03 13:11:50) Calum Traveler: trust me when i say, youll be seeing the Ahnonay Cathedral in a whole new light :33
(12/03 13:11:54) Calum Traveler: no, the cathedral,
(12/03 13:12:04) Calum Traveler: the place with those doors that often slam in people’s faces?
(12/03 13:12:05) judyg loves doobes
(12/03 13:12:12) Doobes: I’ll talk more about it when I’m up there. 😉
(12/03 13:12:15) Calum Traveler nods
(12/03 13:12:28) Calum Traveler: we’ve looked into issues with doors across the entire game due to those doors, and the Chiso door,
(12/03 13:12:33) Chemyst: ohh the hallway place?
(12/03 13:12:44) Calum Traveler: we’ll be looking more into some wider issues in the next quarter regarding doors as a whole,
(12/03 13:12:59) Calum Traveler: yes, the hallway place 😉
(12/03 13:13:12) rarified whispers “revolving doors” 😉
(12/03 13:13:27) Chemyst: like the louve 🙂
(12/03 13:13:28) judyg: heh
(12/03 13:13:53) Calum Traveler: the update is presently on MOULa’s Staging Server
(12/03 13:13:56) Calum Traveler: undergoing final testing
(12/03 13:14:17) Calum Traveler: once Chogon has the time in his schedule, we expect it’ll be pushed on sometime in the next two weeks
(12/03 13:14:29) Calum Traveler: no firm date as to when yet
(12/03 13:14:41) Calum Traveler: atleast, not that im aware.
(12/03 13:14:46) jtrigg: Xmas Prezzie
(12/03 13:15:04) rarified: Check Cyan’s #moula-announcements Discord for the date
(12/03 13:15:05) Calum Traveler: Eder Naybree will have a new December decoration added to it this update as well,
(12/03 13:15:28) Calum Traveler: and there’s some other behind the scenes work that will make some puzzle inputs easier,
(12/03 13:15:42) Calum Traveler: but yeah, smaller update this time,
(12/03 13:15:46) judyg: love puzzles
(12/03 13:15:56) Calum Traveler: right then,
(12/03 13:15:57) judyg: it’s what brought me here
(12/03 13:16:01) judyg: sorry
(12/03 13:16:02) Calum Traveler: onto our first speaker of the day
(12/03 13:16:03) Doobes: More under the hood stuff.
(12/03 13:16:06) Emor D’ni Lap: judyg loves puzzles
(12/03 13:16:07) Calum Traveler: Minasunda! waves
(12/03 13:16:09) Calum Traveler beckons you
(12/03 13:16:13) Calum Traveler: come on down!
(12/03 13:16:28) My’key cheers
(12/03 13:16:36) Minasunda: shorah dear friends 🙂
(12/03 13:16:39) Calum Traveler motions for silence from the crowd.
(12/03 13:16:47) Minasunda: First of all, I would like to point out the premiere of our machinima movie “OKOHAHZAH” on YouTube next Saturday at 12 KI time.
(12/03 13:16:58) Minasunda: Okohahzah is D’ni and it means black / white – here in the sense of light and shadow.
(12/03 13:17:08) Minasunda: We are very excited and hope that you will like the movie.
(12/03 13:17:19) Minasunda: You can chat with us at the premiere on Youtube or here in the game.
(12/03 13:17:21) Rabbit cheers
(12/03 13:17:28) Minasunda: In the game you can join us in cozy company by the fireplace in Elonin.
(12/03 13:17:31) judyg: cheers
(12/03 13:17:39) Minasunda: To get there PM to Mir-O-Bot “link” or “meet” – you’ll be transported straight to the living room and don’t have to traverse the whole Age.
(12/03 13:17:52) Minasunda: Remember this does NOT work with “to Elonin” 🙂
(12/03 13:18:02) Minasunda: And here is the link to the YouTube premiere:
(12/03 13:18:12) Minasunda: https://youtu.be/Fkl1exliK7A
(12/03 13:18:25) Minasunda: There will also be a video with the review of 2022 – I will release it on December 30th on Youtube. So you can see what was happening in the Cavern this year.
(12/03 13:18:36) Minasunda: I will post the link on Facebook and Discord.
(12/03 13:18:47) Minasunda: I’ll wait a little longer to finish it – maybe something interesting will be added by the end of the year
(12/03 13:18:57) Minasunda: my second announcement: It’s not long until the 13th MOULa Anniversary. 🙂
(12/03 13:19:07) Minasunda: We are planning the festival week from February 6th to 11th.
(12/03 13:19:18) Minasunda: Think about whether you want to contribute to the celebrations with an event and let me know so that I can create the schedule and plan the dates.
(12/03 13:19:31) Minasunda: So come and think of something 🙂 We are all counting on you. You can contact me in the game or on Discord.
(12/03 13:19:43) Minasunda: Podhopper has already announced that he will do the Eddie Competition again – you can try to tame him –
(12/03 13:19:53) Minasunda: I mean Eddie, not PodHopper 😛
(12/03 13:20:01) judyg smiles
(12/03 13:20:11) Minasunda: Nosila and Dahmpa will do a music event together.
(12/03 13:20:14) judyg: :))
(12/03 13:20:27) Minasunda: Eternal Seeker and I are planning another special music event with “guided dance”
(12/03 13:20:39) Minasunda: The Nulp Dance Group is already working on a dance show for the Anniversary – this time in a new Age – Fahets Highgarden –
(12/03 13:20:52) Minasunda: Let’s have fun and celebrate the 13 properly 🙂
(12/03 13:21:02) Minasunda: I have one more point I want to make for a given cause.
(12/03 13:21:15) Minasunda: Our hard-working agewriters attract new players. This is really wonderful and we send a warm welcome to all newcomers 🙂
(12/03 13:21:18) judyg: 13 is a lucky day! 🙂
(12/03 13:21:27) Minasunda: BUT… there are unfortunately old players , who are constantly trying to spoil the puzzle fun for new players.
(12/03 13:21:36) Minasunda: Don’t get me wrong, it’s fine to help new players WHEN THEY ASK FOR HELP. But it’s not nice to spoil their fun solving puzzles.
(12/03 13:21:47) Minasunda: If the player clearly says, “No thanks. I want to solve it myself,” then it’s not appropriate to press them so hard that they yield out of politeness.
(12/03 13:21:49) Thumbs up from rarified
(12/03 13:21:56) Minasunda: And it’s really naughty that the “helper” solves the new player’s puzzles despite protest.
(12/03 13:21:57) ShilohOBrien: In other words, mind your business.
(12/03 13:21:57) judyg: indeed
(12/03 13:22:06) Minasunda: Please remember that there are players who really enjoy solving the puzzles and in this way you take the fun out of them.
(12/03 13:22:10) Rabbit: absolutely – I still resent the player that spoiled Kadish for me
(12/03 13:22:15) Rabbit: years later
(12/03 13:22:17) Doobes: People actually do that? Sheesh.
(12/03 13:22:19) Minasunda: It would be really nice and respectful to limit the help to the players who ask for it and respect a “NO”
(12/03 13:22:27) Tom(Samoth): very good point, Mina!
(12/03 13:22:33) Thumbs up from Calum Traveler
(12/03 13:22:34) Minasunda: Ok – thats all from me. Any questions?
(12/03 13:22:35) ShilohOBrien: No means no and is a complete sentence!
(12/03 13:22:38) Calum Traveler: none in queue
(12/03 13:22:45) judyg: hints ok. spoilers? NO!!
(12/03 13:22:46) Emor D’ni Lap: well done, Minasunda – thanks for all your efforts for the Cavern
(12/03 13:22:47) Rabbit: or respect a ‘hints only’ – don’t run ahead and solve the puzzle
(12/03 13:22:48) Minasunda thanks you
(12/03 13:23:06) Calum Traveler: thank you, mina
(12/03 13:23:11) My’key: Way to go MIna, tnx for your work:)
(12/03 13:23:22) Calum Traveler: next on queue, Doobey doobey dooobah- DOOBES!
(12/03 13:23:25) Calum Traveler beckons you
(12/03 13:23:33) Rabbit cheers
(12/03 13:23:37) Doobes waves hello
(12/03 13:23:38) shokhootahn Rehn claps for Mina
(12/03 13:23:42) My’key: do Doobes
(12/03 13:23:45) Doobes: Hi there!
(12/03 13:23:47) My’key: Go
(12/03 13:23:47) shokhootahn Rehn waves to Doobes
(12/03 13:23:56) Doobes: Sorry I’ve been away for awhile. I’ve been working behind the scenes on a few things these last few months.
(12/03 13:24:08) Doobes: Plus, real life always likes to monopolize my time, especially this time of year.
(12/03 13:24:22) Doobes: My part of the next update, which is coming soon, is mostly just updates for my Ages as well as one or two Cyan Ages.
(12/03 13:24:38) Doobes: This round was mostly the Ahnonay Cathedral, fixing some blending issues, updating the reflections, and…finally…fixing the doors for multiplayer.
(12/03 13:24:52) Doobes: If you’ll recall, any time someone Linked in and used the doors, they’d slam shut and open again.
(12/03 13:25:13) Doobes: That is, if there was more than one person, I mean. 😀
(12/03 13:25:35) Doobes: This should (hopefully) be fixed in the next update, and the doors will only open once and close when everyone has Linked out.
(12/03 13:25:36) judyg: we know hun
(12/03 13:25:52) Doobes: Speaking of doors, I’m still cracking away at the door in Chiso, but it’s still being difficult when many people are in the Age.
(12/03 13:26:07) Doobes: We’re likely going to take a look at the Python script that control it in the next quarter. Since it’s one of a couple of scripts that affect quite a few doors in-game, both fan and Cyan Ages alike, it’ll need rigorous testing.
(12/03 13:26:07) Calum Traveler: it seems to open and close at its own whims, sometimes. lol
(12/03 13:26:22) rarified: Needs an exorcism
(12/03 13:26:23) ShilohOBrien: Just accept that Chiso is haunted!
(12/03 13:26:39) philipgr: It is being polite 🙂
(12/03 13:26:45) ShilohOBrien: Put out some milk and honey and everything will be fine. 😀
(12/03 13:26:45) Doobes: The Caltauc, most likely. 😛
(12/03 13:26:50) judyg ears perked up
(12/03 13:26:51) Calum Traveler chuckles
(12/03 13:26:51) Doobes: If we can get things working properly, it might have an added bonus of finally fixing doors in the city like at the library and museum.
(12/03 13:27:05) Doobes: Although I do stress the “might” on that statement. 😉
(12/03 13:27:11) Calum Traveler: yeah, re-adding the doors is its own issue
(12/03 13:27:26) Calum Traveler: they’re technically not even in the tracks anymore >>;
(12/03 13:27:30) Emor D’ni Lap: Star Trek doors should be Star Trek doors 🙂
(12/03 13:27:41) Doobes: Indeed. On the to-do list.
(12/03 13:27:47) Doobes: I’ve also been working on getting Relto and Kirel almost fully converted so that adding Books and pages for the former and updating things in the latter would be much easier, particularly for our friend Hazado. 😀
(12/03 13:28:05) Doobes: Currently, he’s helping me weed out the Relto particle stuff I can’t export yet to put it on a separate PRP for easier export.
(12/03 13:28:18) Doobes: (At least until we get particle emitters and their various bits exporting with Korman)
(12/03 13:28:32) Doobes: And of course, I haven’t forgotten about Descent just yet. I plan to take another swing at it in the near future.
(12/03 13:28:46) Doobes: I’m also playing around with the five Guild Pubs, trying to come up with ideas on how to make them a bit more unique, likely by opening up the side rooms and showing various work going on with each.
(12/03 13:29:03) Doobes: While GoMe and GoW are pretty much covered as far as potential content, but I’d love to hear ideas for the other three.
(12/03 13:29:14) Doobes: All of that is still early stages and is up for discussion though. 😉
(12/03 13:29:30) Doobes: Finally, for those that yet don’t know, Mysterium is going to be held in Spokane, WA next year…and I plan to not only attend…but to put together a presentation!
(12/03 13:29:40) Diranda claps her hands
(12/03 13:29:46) Ereshkigal claps her hands
(12/03 13:29:50) Doobes: I plan to demonstrate, live and in person, how to both build and export an Age with Korman (and all the lovely stuff the plugin does) and how to import Ages using Sirius’ ZLZ Age Importer.
(12/03 13:30:12) Doobes: To supplement that particular presentation, I’d like to develop and set up an asset library of various D’ni objects to use and essentially “paste in” to one’s Age work.
(12/03 13:30:15) jtrigg: Hmm! I will try to get across the Pacific and attend
(12/03 13:30:31) Doobes: This will hopefully encourage others to take a crack at making their own by easing some of the modeling and texturing burden a bit. 🙂
(12/03 13:30:32) Skydiver Q scrolls up and reads the part about Korman again
(12/03 13:30:52) Thumbs up from Diranda
(12/03 13:30:52) Doobes: So lots of irons in the fire. I’m hoping 2023 will be a very productive year, not just for myself, but for MOULa as well.
(12/03 13:31:05) Doobes: Until then, just keep donating to the CAVCON. https://mystonline.com/donate
(12/03 13:31:16) Doobes: So that’s all I’ve got for now. Any questions?
(12/03 13:31:18) Calum Traveler: no questions in queue.
(12/03 13:31:18) Chemyst: what are the chances one day the statue room can be finished in anonay???
(12/03 13:31:24) My’key has a question
(12/03 13:31:35) philipgr: Are you still working on Direbo?
(12/03 13:31:46) Calum Traveler: ahnonay has a lot of borky textures that need fixing, it’s on the to-do list.
(12/03 13:31:47) ShilohOBrien: Can’t finish that. Kadish pulled the funding. 😀
(12/03 13:31:58) Doobes: Chemyst: No plans as of yet, but it could certainly be done…once things are converted.
(12/03 13:32:12) Doobes: philipgr, Direbo is on hold pending Cyan’s thoughts on Myst V content.
(12/03 13:32:19) Doobes: My’key, question?
(12/03 13:32:21) My’key: Whats so difficult bout startin a sentence with Z
(12/03 13:32:28) philipgr: Thanks Doobes 🙂
(12/03 13:32:28) Calum Traveler: keybindings,
(12/03 13:32:30) Chemyst: also what are the chances of bring a living wahrk into game so we can visit him
(12/03 13:32:31) Skydiver Q: can you make the quabs less skiddish?
(12/03 13:32:53) Ereshkigal: Oooh,pet quab to follow us around!
(12/03 13:33:01) My’key: Keybindings?
(12/03 13:33:04) Calum Traveler chuckles, glancing at doobes, regarding the quabs
(12/03 13:33:05) Doobes: Chemyst, that’d require being able to export bone animations, which right now, only 3DS Max can do.
(12/03 13:33:22) Doobes: Skydiver Q: Maybe, but I’m not sure how they’re “wired” per se.
(12/03 13:33:24) philipgr: Pet Relto page like in TOC
(12/03 13:33:31) judyg: is a non-issue here Lol!
(12/03 13:33:32) Calum Traveler: z is likely set to be ignored for chat starting, My’key,
(12/03 13:33:37) Calum Traveler: check your keybinding settings,
(12/03 13:33:37) Scharminius: My’key, Z is the strafe-key — if you hold down Z and press left or right arrow, then you’ll sidestep instead of turning
(12/03 13:33:49) judyg: 🙂
(12/03 13:33:53) judyg: Lol
(12/03 13:33:54) My’key: i have komma and dot for that
(12/03 13:34:02) Doobes: We talked about porting the pets over, but it’s only been talk at the moment.
(12/03 13:34:11) judyg: mo “Z” for you!!!!
(12/03 13:34:20) Calum Traveler: you can bind a specific key for starting chat,
(12/03 13:34:24) Calum Traveler: i have mine as “T” 😉
(12/03 13:34:37) Doobes: For those unaware, The Open Cave had follower pets. Not entirely sure if it can be ported over, but it’s been talked about. So we’ll see!
(12/03 13:34:40) judyg: sigh…..no “z” for anybody.
(12/03 13:34:46) caver1: Will the share function in the Gahreesen nexus book be made usable?
(12/03 13:34:57) Calum Traveler: no, that book should not have a share icon
(12/03 13:35:00) Doobes: Plus, there’s the whole “does this make sense canonically” issue.
(12/03 13:35:17) Doobes: Hmm…yeah, we’ll likely need to fix that.
(12/03 13:35:30) Calum Traveler: mmmhm

(12/03 13:35:58) Skydiver Q takes additional notes about python door scripting
(12/03 13:36:26) shokhootahn Rehn: As always, I have two separate announcements. One is for the D’ni Language Class and the other one is for r’Tayrtahn’s Story Night.
(12/03 13:36:43) shokhootahn Rehn: First, the language classes…
(12/03 13:37:06) shokhootahn Rehn: There are evening classes available on weekday evenings, starting at 20:00, 21:00 or 22:00 KI time, depending on the student’s schedule. There are daytime openings starting at either 12:00 KI time, 13:00 KI time, or 14:00 KI time, again, depending on the student’s schedule. Contact me by PM to set up a day and a time.
(12/03 13:37:38) shokhootahn Rehn: Though, daytime availability is subject to change with little or no notice.
(12/03 13:37:53) shokhootahn Rehn: If you are going to contact me by KI-mail, remember to inclue your KI #.
(12/03 13:38:05) shokhootahn Rehn: I can be found on Discord at r’Tayrtahn#1317.
(12/03 13:38:20) shokhootahn Rehn: As always, current students can find last-minute updates to class times on the left-hand imager.
(12/03 13:38:46) judyg: thank you shokhooahn!
(12/03 13:39:16) shokhootahn Rehn: The Guild Hood has been closed to the public for a little while, no.
(12/03 13:39:29) judyg: ?
(12/03 13:39:49) shokhootahn Rehn: I will be opening it back up to the public, shortly.
(12/03 13:39:59) shokhootahn Rehn: I have one request for visitors: Please do not post pellet points into the Hood imager…
(12/03 13:40:00) judyg: 🙂
(12/03 13:40:17) shokhootahn Rehn: One of my former students, Yutiel, is listed on that imager. I have refrained from posting pellets to maintain her name at the top as a form of memorial. It’s why I haven’t posted pellet points above 168345: it was to keep her name at the top of the list.
(12/03 13:40:41) shokhootahn Rehn: She was a great student and became a close friend in the process.
(12/03 13:40:51) shokhootahn Rehn: She was another explorer who left us way too soon.
(12/03 13:40:56) judyg: awww!!
(12/03 13:41:00) Cave woman: Did se pass?
(12/03 13:41:02) shokhootahn Rehn: Are there any questions?
(12/03 13:41:10) judyg cries
(12/03 13:41:16) Tom(Samoth) is sad

(12/03 13:41:20) Calum Traveler: none in queue,
(12/03 13:41:35) judyg: we all sad now
(12/03 13:41:38) shokhootahn Rehn: Thanks for the condolences. 🙂
(12/03 13:41:39) Dni_seeker 5: if you have fewer pellet points than that can you post
(12/03 13:41:40) shokhootahn Rehn: Moving on…
(12/03 13:42:28) shokhootahn Rehn: Yes, i you have fewer than 168345 pellet points, feel free to post them
(12/03 13:42:46) shokhootahn Rehn: *if
(12/03 13:42:49) judyg: do you not care? or have anything to contribute?
(12/03 13:43:09) shokhootahn Rehn: The second announcement is about r’Taytahn’s Story Night.
(12/03 13:43:30) shokhootahn Rehn: Six weeks ago, we started the story of The Fall as told in Myst: The Book of Ti’Ana. Tonight, we continue that story which is part seven of the eleven-part series of stories of the Fall. It is story number 42 of 104 in the story cycle of the history of D’ni.
(12/03 13:44:00) shokhootahn Rehn: So, there is still plenty of history to go!
(12/03 13:44:08) My’key likes 42
(12/03 13:44:17) Chemyst: story night is one of the best experience i have in game
(12/03 13:44:38) shokhootahn Rehn: After that (the story of the Fall) we will begin the story from Myst: The Book of Atrus, followed by the story from the game of Myst. Eventually, we will cover all of the books and games. as well as the three human attempts at the restoration of D’ni.
(12/03 13:44:46) Cave woman: Welook forward to it each week
(12/03 13:45:31) shokhootahn Rehn: I record Story Night for (eventual) upload to my YouTube channel (r’Tayrtahn). Please do not PM me during the story unless you want to see your message displayed for the entire internet. 😉
(12/03 13:45:50) shokhootahn Rehn: Currently, I am caught up with video compression. Unfortunately, I have a sizable backlog of videos to edit and upload. To my channel subscribers, please be patient; I am slowly working through it. 🙂
(12/03 13:46:11) shokhootahn Rehn: Story Night is held in the public neighborhood of Tsahno’s Hood every Saturday.
(12/03 13:46:19) shokhootahn Rehn: Original Story Night is held at 23:30 KI time on Saturday night. We start gathering at the hood’s fountain starting at 23:00 KI time.
(12/03 13:46:39) shokhootahn Rehn: Story Night – Europe is held at 14:00 KI time on Saturday afternoon. We start gathering at the hood’s fountain starting at 13:30 KI time except for AGM Saturdays, when it starts at 14:00 KI or 15 minutes after the AGM, whichever is later.
(12/03 13:47:03) shokhootahn Rehn: I also post changes on the left-hand imager in the hood.
(12/03 13:47:11) shokhootahn Rehn: Should I need to cancel one of the stories at the last minute, I will try to aprise one or two of my regular audience members of the situation so they can spread the news. 🙂
(12/03 13:47:30) shokhootahn Rehn: Minasunda is one of those members, as she runs the announcements channel on Discord.
(12/03 13:47:42) shokhootahn Rehn: The stories are told using voice so you will need to have your speakers or headsets on.
(12/03 13:47:59) shokhootahn Rehn: r’Tayrtahn announces the start of Story Night through buddy chat. If you would like to receive the announcements, please send r’T a KI mail (with your KI number included in the text) and he’ll add you to his buddies list. His KI number is 58324. KI mails do not identify the KI number of the sender. Though the sender is added to the Recents folder, it is still a good idea to add it to the body of the text. 🙂
(12/03 13:48:31) shokhootahn Rehn: We hope to see you there!
(12/03 13:48:37) shokhootahn Rehn: Any questions?
(12/03 13:48:43) Calum Traveler: none in queue
(12/03 13:48:49) My’key has a question
(12/03 13:48:59) Calum Traveler: yes, My’key?
(12/03 13:49:01) shokhootahn Rehn: Yes?
(12/03 13:49:35) My’key: when do you estimate will the storie for Game start?
(12/03 13:49:49) My’key: after the book of Atrus
(12/03 13:49:53) shokhootahn Rehn: Do you mean Game Tap?
(12/03 13:49:59) My’key: yes, and UU
(12/03 13:50:20) shokhootahn Rehn: I will cover all of those stories. 🙂
(12/03 13:50:48) My’key: i knw, but i read the books of Ti’ana , Atrus and D’ni myselve
(12/03 13:50:57) Speed_Freek512: *puts up hand*
(12/03 13:50:58) My’key: i dont know the Gametap and UU version
(12/03 13:51:04) shokhootahn Rehn: I will cover them in the order that they occurred, like I have done for all of the history up to that point. 🙂
(12/03 13:51:29) My’key: so my Q is, when do you estimate will BoA be finished?
(12/03 13:51:59) Speed_Freek512: Recently there was a mention of new content (relto page, clothing items etc). Are they already present somewhere? I
(12/03 13:52:01) My’key: (book of Atrus)
(12/03 13:52:45) shokhootahn Rehn: I haven’t looked that far ahead on the calendar. It depends on how the US holidays fall and when I engage in personal travel, the latter of which can occur at any time,, but with at least a week’s notice.
(12/03 13:53:04) My’key: OKay, thank you
(12/03 13:53:15) Doobes: Plus, you can always check in here at the AGM.
(12/03 13:53:15) Calum Traveler: Speed_Freek512, you may wish to just explore 😉
(12/03 13:53:34) Calum Traveler: part of the charm is in looking for them, after all :3
(12/03 13:53:43) shokhootahn Rehn: Speed_Freak, I don’t cover clothing items, etc. during Story night. 🙂
(12/03 13:54:09) shokhootahn Rehn: Any other questions?
(12/03 13:54:34) judyg: clothing items? i have a really cute invisa-shirt right now
(12/03 13:54:46) Trippinbugs: I would just like to say hello to everyone, as I’m freshly new here 🙂
(12/03 13:55:00) Ereshkigal: Hi and welcome!!!
(12/03 13:55:00) shokhootahn Rehn thanks you very much!
(12/03 13:55:02) Cave woman: shorah
(12/03 13:55:14) Doobes: Welcome!
(12/03 13:55:18) Ereshkigal: How are you liking the Cavern?
(12/03 13:55:36) Calum Traveler: alright then, on some final wrapup notes…
(12/03 13:56:17) Calum Traveler: as many of you know, we’ve been running off and on sporadic story events carrying on the legacy of live story events in URU,
(12/03 13:56:43) Calum Traveler: we rarely have scheduled events, such as the Town Halls on the last wednesday of the month,
(12/03 13:56:55) Calum Traveler: due to holidays, we may skip the town hall this month,
(12/03 13:57:14) judyg: 😦
(12/03 13:57:24) Calum Traveler: in lieu of that, we have something a bit more… possibly exciting tomorrow, in Eder Naybree at 1100 KI,
(12/03 13:57:34) Calum Traveler: i’d tried to schedule it inbetween the Fan Age Tour and RFD
(12/03 13:57:38) judyg: ?
(12/03 13:57:47) Calum Traveler: but uh, i kinda forgot that Fan Age Tour WAS at 1100 and not at 1000 >>;;
(12/03 13:57:50) Calum Traveler: so,, my bad about that.
(12/03 13:57:53) Calum Traveler bows in apology
(12/03 13:58:29) Calum Traveler: anyways, you all may be aware we had an ongoing story arc involving some troublemakers that we put on pause for a while,
(12/03 13:58:36) judyg: no worrries. we can still listen to RFD during the e vent’
(12/03 13:59:04) Calum Traveler: ^^;;; that’s not exactly the issue, judy.
(12/03 13:59:05) My’key: troublemakers?
(12/03 13:59:06) Rabbit: what is RFD?
(12/03 13:59:10) Calum Traveler: Radio Free D’ni
(12/03 13:59:20) judyg: Radio Free D’ni!!!!

(12/03 13:59:36) Rabbit: thanks
(12/03 13:59:39) judyg: music and mayhem!!!!
(12/03 13:59:41) Calum Traveler: i dont want to talk much about it right now, but suffice to say tomorrows event is our attempt at putting a proper bowtie on that story arc,
(12/03 13:59:43) judyg: sorry
(12/03 13:59:57) Calum Traveler: and then move on to other, more promising story arcs,
(12/03 14:00:13) Calum Traveler: such as the Rei’schu negotiations, or Benahvud’s amnesia,
(12/03 14:00:21) Rabbit: where is thee Town Hall?
(12/03 14:00:35) Rabbit: the
(12/03 14:00:40) Calum Traveler: Town Halls are held in the Great Tree (3) Hood, every last wednesday of the month, at 14:30 KI
(12/03 14:00:55) Rabbit thanks you very much!
(12/03 14:00:58) Calum Traveler: they serve as a sort of recap for recent story events that have happened in the month 🙂
(12/03 14:01:10) Calum Traveler: and tomorrow’s event is in Eder Naybree, 1100 KI
(12/03 14:01:36) Calum Traveler: one of the trouble makers has splintered from her group, and promises to answer any questions folks may have,
(12/03 14:02:04) Emor D’ni Lap: dang those troublemakers
(12/03 14:02:10) Calum Traveler: that’s all im going to say for now,
(12/03 14:02:21) Calum Traveler: if you have interest in the event, you can come and check it out.
(12/03 14:02:28) philipgr: Are the Tiwn Hall stories told by voice or text?
(12/03 14:02:35) Calum Traveler: town halls are told over text
(12/03 14:02:40) Calum Traveler: chatlogs of them are posted to our story forums
(12/03 14:02:56) Calum Traveler: https://dniexplorer.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=8
(12/03 14:03:05) Emor D’ni Lap: town halls are discussion groups, are they not?
(12/03 14:03:14) philipgr: Thanks Calum 🙂
(12/03 14:03:20) My’key: what do you mean with “troublemakers” …
(12/03 14:03:30) Calum Traveler: id rather not rehash the entire story arc right now,
(12/03 14:03:47) Calum Traveler: tldr: some misguided folks were misled by someone into causing trouble,
(12/03 14:04:01) Calum Traveler: story troublemakers
(12/03 14:04:49) Calum Traveler: this is exactly why we put that story on pause,
(12/03 14:04:58) Calum Traveler: because it strayed a bit too close to real-life topics
(12/03 14:05:08) Calum Traveler: in this case, it’s definitely story made troublemakers
(12/03 14:05:13) Calum Traveler: and we’re wrapping up the story.
(12/03 14:05:17) Diranda: This is part of the ongoing Storytellers story we’re working on wrapping up for this season.
(12/03 14:05:23) Calum Traveler: and letting that arc move onto other things.
(12/03 14:05:28) Diranda: Yep
(12/03 14:05:38) Calum Traveler: story discussion threads can be found on our forums as well, https://dniexplorer.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=2
(12/03 14:05:57) Calum Traveler: and dont worry if you cant make it to these events, or dont have the time to read up on the forums,
(12/03 14:06:07) Calum Traveler: eventually, all relevant story documents will be included ingame somewhere.
(12/03 14:06:18) Calum Traveler: tried and true myst discovery fashion.
(12/03 14:09:21) Calum Traveler: right, anyways, im going to call it an AGM now, if that’s alright?
(12/03 14:09:36) Calum Traveler: you all can carry on story topics later if yall want to
(12/03 14:09:42) Calum Traveler: im going to get this chatlog edited and posted
