(01/07 13:02:05) DapperAndy gives 2023 a look and recommends it makes sure to straighten up and fly right
(01/07 13:02:08) Ro”Jethhe: my wallet is a little thinner
(01/07 13:02:15) Calum Traveler: i dont have many speakers set up for today, so this should be a quicker one,
(01/07 13:02:36) Calum Traveler: Mysterium News:

(01/07 13:03:44) Calum Traveler: uh. i dont believe one was given,
(01/07 13:04:03) Calum Traveler: it’s always a little give/take on the exact deadline,
(01/07 13:04:09) ShilohOBrien: Should we assume 24:00 Ki Time?
(01/07 13:04:15) Calum Traveler: probably?
(01/07 13:04:18) Calum Traveler shrugs
(01/07 13:04:19) Ro”Jethhe: stroke of mid night
(01/07 13:04:29) Calum Traveler: just, if you’re planning on submitting one,
(01/07 13:04:34) Calum Traveler: the sooner the better yeah?
(01/07 13:04:41) ShilohOBrien: Not that it involves me. I have all the drawing talent of a concussed baboon.
(01/07 13:04:47) jtrigg: when the clock strikes 13
(01/07 13:05:02) Ro”Jethhe: time to buy a new clock jtrigg
(01/07 13:05:12) Calum Traveler: Registration should be opening up sometime this month, so please keep your eyes peeled for the announcement blogposts on Mysterium’s website and other locations such as Discord,
(01/07 13:05:20) jtrigg: Darn it , you’re right
(01/07 13:05:20) [PRIVATE] From Theo: Pacific Ghost Time?
(01/07 13:05:33) Eternal Seeker: the crumbs have to shut up when the Cookie speaks
(01/07 13:05:37) Calum Traveler: that’s all i’ve got for mysterium.
(01/07 13:05:40) Ashtonia: I check it every day lol
(01/07 13:05:42) Calum Traveler: Cavern news!
(01/07 13:05:59) Calum Traveler: We had our end of year update in December, lovely plumage for the holidays…
(01/07 13:06:02) Calum Traveler coughs
(01/07 13:06:45) Calum Traveler: ahhem, anyways, we’ve been made aware of issues with some shirts going invisible at odd distances- or reappearing at further ones in some cases,
(01/07 13:06:54) Calum Traveler: and we have plans to fix that in the next quarter
(01/07 13:07:34) ShilohOBrien: I hate it when my shirt goes walkabout.
(01/07 13:07:34) judyg: yes, i know. people keep telling me so
(01/07 13:08:11) Titus D’Ni: Hello, a certain number of players have mentioned the arrival of new original dances in the game… is a date already fixed?p
(01/07 13:08:18) Murry: So it’s an issue, not a clothing-optional choice…
(01/07 13:08:22) Calum Traveler: original dances?
(01/07 13:08:25) Calum Traveler: as in /retrodance?
(01/07 13:08:38) Ereshkigal: Oooh, I’d love to see them!
(01/07 13:08:45) Ereshkigal: Cookie dance 🙂
(01/07 13:08:51) IwonK: 😉
(01/07 13:08:56) jtrigg: oh crumbs
(01/07 13:08:59) Calum Traveler: unfortunately new avatar animations are not easy to create at this time, and, infact, a lot of avatar related stuff is a bit harder to implement due to 3ds max issues,
(01/07 13:09:07) ShilohOBrien sits back and restrains the urge to add to the chaos.
(01/07 13:09:12) Calum Traveler: there’s a reason most new clothing items have been retextures at this point 😉
(01/07 13:09:29) Titus D’Ni: he players were talking about new original choreographies
(01/07 13:09:31) judyg: i don;t mind. makes for some funny jokes with invisa-shirt
(01/07 13:09:43) Boywhith: We all have to pick up the knitting pens, I fear 😉
(01/07 13:09:45) Calum Traveler: you’d want to talk to Minasunda about dance choreographies, titus,
(01/07 13:09:55) ShilohOBrien pops another “special” gummy and grins.
(01/07 13:10:00) Titus D’Ni: i dont know more about
(01/07 13:10:02) Calum Traveler: those are a different thing and an art of their own
(01/07 13:10:07) Emor D’ni Lap: no one wants to become the “go-to” person for clothing and/or animations 🙂
(01/07 13:10:24) ShilohOBrien: Good point.
(01/07 13:10:29) judyg: i thought it was doobes, for clothing issues
(01/07 13:10:33) Calum Traveler: especially not when the avatar nonsense that is just correcting UV meshes,
(01/07 13:10:46) Calum Traveler shudders at the visuals of avvies turning into shardy glass pincushons…
(01/07 13:10:57) judyg: XD
(01/07 13:11:11) ShilohOBrien: The Cavern meets Bloodborne?
(01/07 13:11:43) Calum Traveler: anyways, Q1-23 is underway on Minkata Alpha, and we please request that testers keep quiet about one certain project until it’s ready to be released,
(01/07 13:11:50) Ahno: there’s a way to do dance chroeographies with general emotes and a keyboard input emulator too, but that one is not so network lag proof as the dance group method and floods the chat with emote text…
(01/07 13:12:12) Calum Traveler: you all know which one im talking about, probably.
(01/07 13:12:21) Murry: Yes
(01/07 13:12:26) ShilohOBrien: I know nothing!!!
(01/07 13:12:29) Calum Traveler puts a finger to lips and makes a ‘sssh’ sound
(01/07 13:12:57) Calum Traveler: I can say, personally, that I’m hoping to have Eder Naybree’s beach expansion locked down in this quarter.
(01/07 13:13:05) jtrigg: err no. I need to reset my credentials for Mintaka
(01/07 13:13:09) Calum Traveler: but that’s all I’ll say on that front.
(01/07 13:13:16) ShilohOBrien: Beach party!!!
(01/07 13:13:16) rarified knows nothing about knowing nothing
(01/07 13:13:55) Calum Traveler: finally…
(01/07 13:14:02) Calum Traveler: on the Story Front
(01/07 13:14:14) Ahno doesnt know what not to know… best way to know nothing…
(01/07 13:14:22) Calum Traveler: the little event in Naybree I mentioned last month seemed to have gone over very well, from the feedback we’ve heard.
(01/07 13:14:36) Thumbs up from Ereshkigal
(01/07 13:14:38) Calum Traveler: it’s given us some good ideas of how to try handling things in the coming year, 🙂
(01/07 13:15:11) Calum Traveler: speaking personally, it was a Blast to work on, and I enjoyed seeing so many folks get involved, both from the community and the storytellers
(01/07 13:15:20) Calum Traveler: so to those who took the time to come out that day…
(01/07 13:15:22) Calum Traveler thanks you very much!
(01/07 13:15:46) ShilohOBrien raises her flask in a toast.
(01/07 13:15:54) judyg: is there a way to know when these events are going to happen?
(01/07 13:15:58) jtrigg: ur welcome
(01/07 13:16:12) Calum Traveler: we’re going to be trying to telegraph some events a bit more obviously going forwards,
(01/07 13:16:18) Murry searches himself for the flask.
(01/07 13:16:28) Calum Traveler: though we still want to have our free form on the moment events as well,
(01/07 13:16:33) judyg: maybe put them on the GOG calendar?
(01/07 13:16:38) Calum Traveler winks
(01/07 13:16:38) [PRIVATE] From Theo: I was glad to have been an observer, even if I had nothing else to contribute.
(01/07 13:16:55) Calum Traveler: yes, we’re planning to telegraph more obviously through means such as that for our more important ones,
(01/07 13:17:06) Calum Traveler: the town halls have proven to be a big success in that regard as well,
(01/07 13:17:18) Emor D’ni Lap knows nossing about these mysterious ‘events’
(01/07 13:17:28) Calum Traveler: if you’re interested in catching up on the story so far,
(01/07 13:17:39) Calum Traveler: you can check out the transcripts forum, or the discussion forums on:

(01/07 13:21:54) Calum Traveler beckons you
(01/07 13:21:54) Calum Traveler: shokhootahn Rehn!
(01/07 13:23:48) shokhootahn Rehn fumbles with his notes
(01/07 13:23:53) 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.
(01/07 13:24:04) shokhootahn Rehn: First, the language classes…
(01/07 13:24:22) shokhootahn Rehn: There are evening classes available on weekday evenings on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, 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.
(01/07 13:24:48) shokhootahn Rehn: Though, daytime availability is subject to change with little or no notice.
(01/07 13:25:04) shokhootahn Rehn: If you are going to contact me by KI-mail, remember to inclue your KI #.
(01/07 13:25:16) shokhootahn Rehn: I can be found on Discord at r’Tayrtahn#1317.
(01/07 13:25:35) shokhootahn Rehn: As always, current students can find last-minute updates to class times on the left-hand imager.
(01/07 13:26:02) shokhootahn Rehn: Currently, there is one student taking the classes.
(01/07 13:26:16) shokhootahn Rehn: The Guild of Instructors’ Hood will be open and public unless a class is in session.
(01/07 13:26:31) shokhootahn Rehn: I have one request for visitors: Please do not post pellet points into the Hood imager…
(01/07 13:26:41) 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.
(01/07 13:27:02) shokhootahn Rehn: She was a great student and became a close friend in the process.
(01/07 13:27:14) shokhootahn Rehn: She was another explorer who left us way too soon.
(01/07 13:27:21) shokhootahn Rehn: Are there any questions?
(01/07 13:27:38) Calum Traveler: none in queue,
(01/07 13:27:40) shokhootahn Rehn: Moving on…
(01/07 13:27:47) shokhootahn Rehn: The second announcement is about r’Taytahn’s Story Night.
(01/07 13:28:24) shokhootahn Rehn: v
(01/07 13:29:24) shokhootahn Rehn: *11 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 ten of the eleven-part series of stories of the Fall. It is story number 47 of 104 in the story cycle of the history of D’ni.
(01/07 13:29:51) shokhootahn Rehn: So, there is still plenty of history to go!
(01/07 13:30:12) shokhootahn Rehn: After that 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.
(01/07 13:31:49) shokhootahn Rehn: I am recording Story Night for (eventual) upload to my YouTube channel (r’Tayrtahn). I have reated an avatar for the purpose of recording. His name is “I’m a bot, do not message”. Please do not PM him during the story unless you want to see your message displayed for the entire internet. 😉
(01/07 13:32:26) judyg: 🙂
(01/07 13:32:31) Calum Traveler chuckles at the name
(01/07 13:32:41) shokhootahn Rehn: hehe
(01/07 13:32:44) 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. 🙂
(01/07 13:32:52) shokhootahn Rehn: Story Night is held in the public neighborhood of Tsahno’s Hood every Saturday.
(01/07 13:33:03) 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.
(01/07 13:33:32) 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.
(01/07 13:33:53) shokhootahn Rehn: I also post changes on the left-hand imager in the hood.
(01/07 13:34:08) 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. 🙂
(01/07 13:34:34) shokhootahn Rehn: Minasunda is one of those members, as she runs the announcements channel on Discord.
(01/07 13:34:44) shokhootahn Rehn: The stories are told using voice so you will need to have your speakers or headsets on.
(01/07 13:34:55) 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. 🙂
(01/07 13:35:16) shokhootahn Rehn: We hope to see you there!
(01/07 13:35:20) shokhootahn Rehn: Any questions?
(01/07 13:35:48) Calum Traveler: none in queue
(01/07 13:35:49) shokhootahn Rehn thanks you very much!

(01/07 13:38:54) ShilohOBrien: Everyone, buy Chogon a drink at this year’s Mysterium.
