He was checking things out after the Yeesha sighting

I caught things a little after they started
EDIT - more added
[spoiler](02/21 20:27:55) Chat.log started...
(02/21 20:29:24) To Dr. Kodama: Shorah, Doctor. May I ask you a question?
(02/21 20:31:51) To Dr. Kodama: I'll take that as a yes.. Several explorers have had concerns over the stability of the cavern ceiling. You have the doctorate in Geology, do you think the cavern roof is stable?
(02/21 21:01:55) From Dr. Kodama in sil_oh_wet's Bevin: I have no concerns.
(02/21 21:02:20) To Dr. Kodama in sil_oh_wet's Bevin: Thank you very much, Doctor.
(02/21 21:04:09) Whilyam: Inspecting the area where Yeesha was reported from yesterday?
(02/21 21:04:30) Dr. Kodama: Just looking around.
(02/21 21:06:03) Whilyam: Was there any damage caused by Yeesha's appearance yesterday?
(02/21 21:06:16) Dr. Kodama: Not that I'm aware of.
(02/21 21:09:5Cool Jan Stepmeir: ok ... never seen a person do that before... lol
(02/21 21:10:0Cool Whilyam: do what?
(02/21 21:10:40) Jan Stepmeir: instead of the short jump walk, the Dr.'s on speed
(02/21 21:11:09) Jan Stepmeir: and hiya Dr.
(02/21 21:11:10) Dr. Kodama: Sorry. Not me.
(02/21 21:11:15) Whilyam: Well I have a hard time thinking you're here for pleasure, Dr. Considering what happened here yesterday.
(02/21 21:11:34) Dr. Kodama: Just looking around.
(02/21 21:11:47) Whilyam: I noticed that.
(02/21 21:11:4Cool Jan Stepmeir: so no comment from the DRC on the appearance?
(02/21 21:11:56) Dr. Kodama: What would you like me to say?
(02/21 21:12:07) Whilyam: Any ideas on how this occured?
(02/21 21:12:0Cool Jan Stepmeir: good question
(02/21 21:12:1Cool Whilyam: Some people say Yeesha's hologram appeared.
(02/21 21:12:27) Dr. Kodama: Stil not exactly sure what occured.
(02/21 21:12:35) Dr. Kodama: Need to know that before we can speculate as to how.
(02/21 21:12:4Cool Whilyam: A hologram of Yeesha appeared on the fountain.
(02/21 21:13:04) Dr. Kodama: What people describe as a hologram...yes.
(02/21 21:14:25) Jan Stepmeir: how about a comment on the Museum doors then?
(02/21 21:14:4Cool Dr. Kodama: Ask Laxman... I never knew doors were that difficult to make function.
(02/21 21:15:05) Lydiamalia: The Library doors are not working right either
(02/21 21:15:06) Jan Stepmeir: lol, they do seem to have a mind of their own
(02/21 21:15:20) Dr. Kodama: We are aware of the doors that are not working.
(02/21 21:15:29) Whilyam: We would, but he's been around here like a slug in a salt shaker...
(02/21 21:15:42) Dr. Kodama: Good. He has plenty of work to keep him busy.
(02/21 21:16:10) Whilyam: Then it's unreasonable for us to ask him..
(02/21 21:16:24) Lydiamalia: Do you have a comment on Yeesha's apperance?
(02/21 21:16:33) Dr. Kodama: No.
(02/21 21:16:45) <sniffle> Lydiamalia is sad
(02/21 21:16:57) Kiyoshi thinks 'No'; *was* a comment
(02/21 21:17:22) Jan Stepmeir: does the DRC have a contingency plan in case Yeesha takes over the Restoration?
(02/21 21:17:2Cool Dr. Kodama: No.
(02/21 21:17:56) Whilyam: Do you suggest explorers go on the journey through Delin and Tsogahl?
(02/21 21:18:13) Lydiamalia: Do you have any news for us
(02/21 21:18:15) Dr. Kodama: Those Ages have been approved. I see no reason not to.
(02/21 21:18:29) Lydiamalia: Or advice?
(02/21 21:18:55) Dr. Kodama: Advice pertaining to what?
(02/21 21:19:05) Whilyam: How to conduct ourselves down here?
(02/21 21:19:07) Erik: Shorah everyone
(02/21 21:19:11) Free Bird: What about the malfunctioning door in Bevin? Could that be Yeesha's work?
(02/21 21:19:18) Free Bird: I mean delin.
(02/21 21:19:23) Lydiamalia: Maybe how we could help?
(02/21 21:19:30) Dr. Kodama: How to conduct yourselves? You're not children.
(02/21 21:19:38) Jan Stepmeir: you know Nick White's scared of you .... you might want to talk to him, ease his fears a bit...
(02/21 21:19:46) manloc: shorah
(02/21 21:19:49) Whilyam: There's something you'd never have said a couple years ago.
(02/21 21:19:53) Dr. Kodama: I talk to Nick fairly frequently.
(02/21 21:19:56) Slightperil: Do you know how the projection was made?
(02/21 21:20:22) Dr. Kodama: Don't know if it was a projection.
(02/21 21:20:28) Slightperil: Oh
(02/21 21:20:41) Arias: Wow, our little bevin is getting quite crowded
(02/21 21:20:46) Whilyam: Again.
(02/21 21:21:02) Ly'net: Yes it is
(02/21 21:21:09) Whilyam: Should we form a spiral? Dr. you could be in the center..
(02/21 21:21:20) Jan Stepmeir: lol
(02/21 21:21:24) Slightperil: How is progress coming with new areas in the city?
(02/21 21:21:26) Dr. Kodama: I have better things to do. Thank you though.
(02/21 21:21:35) Slightperil: What about the museum?
(02/21 21:21:45) Dr. Kodama: Delays, delays...
(02/21 21:21:46) Ly'net: Ow soon till that's open?
(02/21 21:21:53) Slightperil: What is delaying it?
(02/21 21:21:54) Dr. Kodama: I would hope for next week.
(02/21 21:22:19) Erik: But on the DRC website it's stated that it was completed on January 4th?
(02/21 21:22:41) Dr. Kodama: Indeed.
(02/21 21:22:47) Dr. Kodama: Thank you for reading the site for me.
(02/21 21:22:51) Slightperil: Whats wrong with it?
(02/21 21:22:56) Ly'net snickers
(02/21 21:23:02) Slightperil: Is there anything in it?
(02/21 21:23:02) Arias: Heh
(02/21 21:23:09) Dr. Kodama: A few small things.
(02/21 21:23:19) Lydiamalia is a bit puzzled...
(02/21 21:23:31) Dr. Kodama: Nothing major.
(02/21 21:23:47) Dr. Kodama: I would hope the doors would work correctly before we open it.
(02/21 21:23:51) Whilyam: I won't bother reading the site for you, Dr.. Why isn't it updated?
(02/21 21:23:52) Dr. Kodama: Although... who knows.
(02/21 21:24:05) Slightperil: Doors are a problem
(02/21 21:24:14) Ly'net: Would we be in any danger if we were to go into the museum, or is it more that it's not ready for public viewing?
(02/21 21:24:17) Jan Stepmeir: can't you just lock the doors open?
(02/21 21:24:38) Dr. Kodama: Apparently not.
(02/21 21:24:43) Slightperil: What else are you working on just now?
(02/21 21:25:10) Ly'net: Like the pictures?
(02/21 21:25:13) Dr. Kodama: Er'Cana.
(02/21 21:25:18) Free Bird: About the D'ni in Noloben... What's his or her name?
(02/21 21:25:22) Jan Stepmeir: so supermarkets can lock their automatic doors open but the D'ni couldn't, interesting, lol
(02/21 21:25:48) Slightperil: Is it close?
(02/21 21:25:48) Dr. Kodama: Supermarkets do have a hard time writing Books that link however.
(02/21 21:25:55) Ly'net: true
(02/21 21:26:01) Sosiqui: That'd be one heck of a prize in your supermarket cereal.
(02/21 21:26:09) Ly'net: lol
(02/21 21:26:10) Mikel: Do you have an estimation for Er'cana for us?
(02/21 21:26:24) Jan Stepmeir: are you kidding me, their express checkout service is nothing short of ingenious at getting people in and out of the store
(02/21 21:26:28) Whilyam predicts "No."
(02/21 21:26:31) Dr. Kodama: At this point...
(02/21 21:26:54) Dr. Kodama: April or May...
(02/21 21:27:06) Slightperil: Wow thanks
(02/21 21:27:11) Jan Stepmeir: cool
(02/21 21:27:15) Dr. Kodama: Providing there are no more delays... which seem to be following us everywhere right now.
(02/21 21:27:21) Slightperil: What about city areas?
(02/21 21:27:36) Erik: follow the leader
(02/21 21:27:44) Kiyoshi: :)
(02/21 21:27:54) Whilyam: Interested in a game of heek, Dr? :P
(02/21 21:27:58) Ly'net: dr. kodama, do you play heek?
(02/21 21:28:05) Dr. Kodama: At times.
(02/21 21:28:12) Ly'net: are you good at it?
(02/21 21:28:16) Dr. Kodama: Of course.
(02/21 21:28:19) Ly'net: Lol
(02/21 21:28:21) Whilyam: Heh
(02/21 21:28:31) Slightperil: Are you planning any city interiors for the near future?
(02/21 21:28:47) Jan Stepmeir: any progress on the Gahreesen wall? it would be nice to have that open to relieve the occasional boredom...
(02/21 21:29:03) Dr. Kodama: The Museum.
(02/21 21:29:26) Dr. Kodama: I think I've seen all I need to see.
(02/21 21:29:29) Dr. Kodama: Good day.
(02/21 21:29:33) Whilyam: Shorah, Dr.
(02/21 21:29:36) Erik: bye Dr. Kodama
(02/21 21:29:37) Kiyoshi: bye bye
(02/21 21:29:38) Jan Stepmeir: ttyl Dr.
(02/21 21:29:39) Ly'net: bye Dr.
(02/21 21:29:45) Error: Don't know how to '/endlog'
(02/21 21:29:47) Lydiamalia waves bye
(02/21 21:29:50) ...Chat.log stopped.

I guess they learned their lesson from the library. :lol:

That was pretty awesome though, and he does at least have some sense of humor. He's not totally evil. :wink: I'm pretty excited for Er'cana in a few months.

Well, I'd be too, if I had a flock of explorers asking for status reports every time I went into the Cavern. :P

I think he has been grilled so many times, he is now well past well done and has become a bit...dry. Should have basted. ;)

Whilyam also posted a log for this event on the DRC forums - it has a little bit more of the beginning. :)

http://forums.drcsite.org/viewtopic.php?t=1796

edit: And I got pwned by the edit. I dub today Sosi's foot-in-mouth day!


It was pretty amusing to see all the explorers trailing around the 'hood after Kodama. (And surprisingly lag free!)

It was good.

I'm glad i asked him questions though, didn't look like anyone else was doing much when i got there. Thought the start of the log pips me on that one.

Still :wink:

Aw, a few months until Er'cana?

...sigh.

Alright, I can deal. I'm really excited by the museum and the new museum ages, so I can't complain. I'm really looking forward to that train in Er'cana, but it can wait.

No, not at all... got to take his cultural background and the pedigree in his field of expertise. He is stoic and reserved, but not cold... no, I don't see him as cold, just a very timid cautious man who cares deeply, but who is not a true communicator. Too intellectual, too withdrawn maybe, but this is just a quirk of his persona, his way of being in the world. I don't even think he realizes he might be perceived by others as cold. He is very narcissistic, yes; but, this is to be expected by somoeone as fanatical about his work and duties as he is.

Just another POV ... 8)


oooh... E'rcana.... me whizzes at the thought... :P

Ah, close, but no dice :lol:

kodama: the mouth of a valley
kodama sutama: a kind of monster

Cojak Hanzi Dictionary: click here.

But then it might be that our Kodama is both: a deep mouthed monster.... :P

Kodama is a very interesting character. I used to agree with earthwizard about his dubious people skills -- until January '04, and "let's throw them a bone." After that, my view was that he has a passive-agressive mean streak a yard wide.

The character earthwizard describes is fascinating -- layered and nuanced. I don't see that in Dr. Kodama's character. He seems constantly annoyed, as if under some strange, tectonic complusion to mix geology and gratuitous rudeness.

After reading the "let's throw them a bone", I realized my mistake, and will have to agree with tk.... :wink:

Now I do see him as a negative narcissist, and below have typified the most common aspects of his NDP disorder (and if he truly is of this type I would say to all - beware of Kodama, and please, do not cross him):

*Note: highlighted the one's I see in him from tk's judgement, others may see bits and pieces of Kodama from their own experience. I have not known him or met him, so can only observe from a distance and through transcripts. So to be fair, I need to meet these people to give a complete background profile.

1. Self-centered. His needs are paramount.

2. No remorse for mistakes or misdeeds.


3. Unreliable, undependable.

4. Does not care about the consequences of his actions.

5. Projects his faults on to others. High
blaming behavior; never his fault.


6. Little if any conscience.

. 7. Insensitive to needs and feelings of others.
8. Has a good front (persona) to impress and exploit others.

9. Low stress tolerance. Easy to anger and rage.

10. People are to be manipulated for his needs.

11. Rationalizes easily. Twists conversation to his gain at other’s expense. If trapped, keeps
talking, changes the subject or gets angry.

12. Pathological lying.

13. Tremendous need to control situations, conversations, others.

14. No real values. Mostly situational.

15. Often perceived as caring and understanding and uses this to manipulate.

16. Angry, mercurial, moods.

17. Uses sex to control

18. Does not share ideas, feelings, emotions.

19. Conversation controller. Must have the first and last word.

20. Is very slow to forgive others. Hangs onto resentment.

21. Secret life. Hides money, friends, activities.

22. Likes annoying others. Likes to create chaos and disrupt for no reason.

23. Moody - switches from nice guy to anger without much provocation.

24. Repeatedly fails to honor financial obligations.

25. Seldom expresses appreciation.

26. Grandiose. Convinced he knows more than others and is correct in all he does.

27. Lacks ability to see how he comes across to others. Defensive when confronted with his behavior. Never his fault.

28. Can get emotional, tearful. This is about show or frustration rather than sorrow.

29. He breaks woman's spirits to keep them dependent.

30. Needs threats, intimidations to keep others close to him.

31. Sabotages partner. Wants her to be happy only through him and to have few or no outside interests and acquaintances.

32. Highly contradictory.

33. Convincing. Must convince people to side with him.

34. Hides his real self. Always “on”

35. Kind only if he's getting from you what he wants.

36. He has to be right. He has to win. He has to look good.

37. He announces, not discusses. He tells, not asks.

38. Does not discuss openly, has a hidden agenda.

39. Controls money of others but spends freely on himself.

40. Unilateral condition of, "I'm OK and justified so I don't need to hear your position or ideas"

41. Always feels misunderstood.

42. You feel miserable with this person. He drains you.

43. Does not listen because he does not care.

44. His feelings are discussed, not the partners.

45. Is not interested in problem-solving..

46. Very good at reading people, so he can manipulate them.

just another update from ye friendly ranger..... whoops..... wizard, earthwiz

Well -- that might be excessively harsh. I mean really, anyone who can tell schist from gneiss in the dark deserves some credit! :?
