(12/10 15:02:03) janeerah: hi
(12/10 15:02:04) Hawu Meninp waves hello
(12/10 15:02:06) Grandbad claps his hands
(12/10 15:02:14) Alexander Rush: I'm glad to see such a large group!
(12/10 15:02:22) Zyxia: hi adi
(12/10 15:02:47) Locutus: back
(12/10 15:03:01) Alexander Rush: Sorry for being slightly late; let's get started
(12/10 15:03:12) Ranger10: np : 0
(12/10 15:03:14) Ranger10: : )
(12/10 15:03:24) TheGreatMysterio: I have no clue what's going on.
(12/10 15:03:32) Alexander Rush: So my archaeology partner Ariana Brown and I
(12/10 15:04:02) Alexander Rush: recently graduated from college and came to the cavern looking for work
(12/10 15:04:22) Alexander Rush: So we were wandering through the cavern and the ages looking for something new to restore
(12/10 15:04:35) Alexander Rush: And for about a year we were unsuccessful
(12/10 15:04:59) Alexander Rush: But then, just when we were about to give up hope, we spotted something in a dark corner of the Museum
(12/10 15:05:30) Alexander Rush: It was a fragment of parchment with D'ni writing
(12/10 15:05:50) Alexander Rush: We could not make much of it until...
(12/10 15:06:10) Alexander Rush: a few weeks later we found another fragment in Gahreesen
(12/10 15:06:26) Alexander Rush: And the amazing thing was...
(12/10 15:06:32) Alexander Rush: they fit together!
(12/10 15:07:07) Alexander Rush: And they included the word "treasure"
(12/10 15:07:31) Alexander Rush: so then we were really interested and started looking for more fragments like never before
(12/10 15:07:44) Alexander Rush: And we've found a few, but it's not easy
(12/10 15:07:57) Alexander Rush: That's why we wanted your help
(12/10 15:08:15) Alexander Rush: Fragments could be anywhere in the cavern or the ages, and they're hard to spot
(12/10 15:08:40) Alexander Rush: Also they're hard to fit together
(12/10 15:09:19) Alexander Rush: It's as if someone MEANT for this message to be difficult to find
(12/10 15:09:47) Alexander Rush: How else could we explain such a scattering?
(12/10 15:10:08) Alexander Rush: Anyway, I greatly appreciate your willingness to help us!
(12/10 15:10:14) TheGreatMysterio: Excuse me, sir, what do the pieces look like?
(12/10 15:10:28) Alexander Rush: Please know that you will receive a share of anything we find
(12/10 15:11:11) Alexander Rush: They're about two to three inches across with rather large writing on them
(12/10 15:11:16) Hawu Meninp thinks he saw a fragment somewhere during last week, looking like a paper torn half
(12/10 15:11:41) Alexander Rush: Cool!
(12/10 15:11:45) TheGreatMysterio: Writing that you can see without a close examination?
(12/10 15:11:54) Li Burumi: Is it D'ni writing?
(12/10 15:11:55) Alexander Rush: That could very well be one of them
(12/10 15:12:05) Ranger10: are we doing questions at the end
(12/10 15:12:15) Hawu Meninp: it was definitely D'ni writing on it
(12/10 15:12:16) Alexander Rush: Yes it's D'ni writing; it's not like it's hidden or anything
(12/10 15:12:35) Alexander Rush: Questions whenever you want
(12/10 15:12:39) Ranger10: ok
(12/10 15:13:02) Gardonis: Whom do we notify if we find something?
(12/10 15:13:18) Grandbad: Piece in Classroom on the desk.
(12/10 15:13:30) Alexander Rush: So I'm going to send you a marker mission that helps you know what to look for
(12/10 15:13:32) Hawu Meninp: is it a competitive or a cooperative kind of task?
(12/10 15:13:42) Ranger10: so we just look in every nook and cranny then?
(12/10 15:13:49) Alexander Rush: It's cooperative of course
(12/10 15:13:55) Hawu Meninp: great
(12/10 15:14:01) Alexander Rush: Yes, they could be anywhere
(12/10 15:14:02) Thumbs up from Hawu Meninp
(12/10 15:14:14) Ranger10: cool
(12/10 15:14:27) Alexander Rush: Also please don't actually move the fragments when you find them; let us professionals take care of that
(12/10 15:14:44) Ranger10 nods her head
(12/10 15:14:52) Alexander Rush: Just report them either to our representative Simon on the forum, or to Ariana or me in a KImail
(12/10 15:14:52) Hawu Meninp: sure thing
(12/10 15:15:03) Alexander Rush: The forum is a good place for you to work together
(12/10 15:15:43) Alexander Rush: So, please wait while I add you all as buddies, and then send the mission
(12/10 15:15:55) Ranger10: : )
(12/10 15:16:05) Niysiechka has 32 fragments in her hat. She write it in notebook
(12/10 15:16:05) Grandbad claps his hands
(12/10 15:16:28) Gregorian wants to ask a question...
(12/10 15:16:28) Gregorian: what happens if you already received the mission last week at the last meeting and found all the markers?
(12/10 15:18:40) adi: i guess you wait until we leave and discuss it among yourselves :P
(12/10 15:18:43) Josie: shorah :) sorry I'm late
(12/10 15:18:59) Chronos: hey josie
(12/10 15:19:29) Ranger10: can we forward the game to others?
(12/10 15:19:36) Cyoor: So they can be in any age?
(12/10 15:19:54) Alexander Rush: Shorah Josie; short version of the story is that we're looking for fragments with a D'ni message leading to a treasure!
(12/10 15:20:12) Li Burumi: Pages. Bring the pages...
(12/10 15:20:16) Alexander Rush: Yes please forward it; we could use all the help we can get!
(12/10 15:20:25) Alexander Rush: They can be in any age.
(12/10 15:20:26) Ranger10: COOL!!!
(12/10 15:20:34) Josie: nice!
(12/10 15:20:41) Hawu Meninp: :D even in another game?
(12/10 15:20:58) Gete-aya'aa: do we get to keep a portion of the treasure if we find all the fragments?
(12/10 15:21:05) Alexander Rush: What do you mean by another game?
(12/10 15:21:11) Hawu Meninp: (just kidding)
(12/10 15:21:14) Gete-aya'aa: I just had to ask :-P
(12/10 15:21:15) Ranger10: can WE be any age too! ? lol
(12/10 15:21:43) adi: haha gete that would be fun
(12/10 15:21:44) Alexander Rush: You will get some of the treasure, but some of it must go to business purposes
(12/10 15:21:55) Hawu Meninp: I meant the offline Myst games of course btw :)
(12/10 15:21:56) Gregorian: well anyway i could act as a kind of guide if anyone needs help :) if that's ok with Alexander.
(12/10 15:22:37) Ranger10: Have you sent it yet alex??
(12/10 15:23:07) Grandbad will have to learn how to write a KI mail.
(12/10 15:23:13) Hawu Meninp: twenty of us here...
(12/10 15:23:16) Alexander Rush: Yes, if you find fragments faster than others, please let them have the thrill of finding them on their own if they want, but also help those who ask
(12/10 15:23:31) Gregorian: ok
(12/10 15:23:32) Alexander Rush: And we will ultimately compile one complete message
(12/10 15:23:34) Ranger10: Woohoo!
(12/10 15:23:40) Cyoor: How will we know when we have it, will it be like markers on the KI?
(12/10 15:23:41) Hawu Meninp: maybe adding us as buddies and sending it os still in progress
(12/10 15:23:46) Grandbad cheers
(12/10 15:23:48) Hawu Meninp: is
(12/10 15:23:53) Li Burumi: Where will the combo message be posted?
(12/10 15:24:16) Alexander Rush: Yes: we've arranged to use the KI's marker system to help you keep track of the fragments you've found
(12/10 15:24:29) Gete-aya'aa: hey Hawu, I can help you that writing a KI-mail thing if you want
(12/10 15:24:37) Grandbad: Cool
(12/10 15:24:37) Alexander Rush: Will be posted on the forum
(12/10 15:24:49) Alexander Rush: Now let me send you the quest...
(12/10 15:24:56) Grandbad leans left
(12/10 15:25:00) Gete-aya'aa: whoops, sorry, meant Grandbad
(12/10 15:25:01) Cyoor: For example if Grandbad finds one, can I also find the same one, or do we do it together?
(12/10 15:25:03) Annabelle leans right
(12/10 15:25:24) Grandbad: :)
(12/10 15:25:48) Hawu Meninp: thanks Gete, I already figured that outby now ;)
(12/10 15:25:49) Alexander Rush: Remember, only Ariana and I will actually pick up the fragments after you have confirmed the location
(12/10 15:26:02) Alexander Rush: So you can find them alone or together
(12/10 15:26:16) Cyoor: Ok thanks
(12/10 15:26:55) Grandbad: So when you pick up the fragments will that mean they are not there for others?
(12/10 15:27:25) Gete-aya'aa: no, Grandbad, ONLY Alexander and Ariana can pick them up
(12/10 15:27:48) Gete-aya'aa: all we do is find them
(12/10 15:27:53) Hawu Meninp: we just pick them up for checking them out and then we're putting them back?
(12/10 15:28:03) Gete-aya'aa: and report their locations
(12/10 15:28:06) Gardonis: The markers will still be there, presumably, after the fragments are gone.
(12/10 15:28:11) Grandbad: Thats what i meant, when Alex, Arian pick are they GONE.
(12/10 15:28:16) Hawu Meninp: or none of us should touch them?
(12/10 15:28:39) Annabelle: 1.lost rumors received
(12/10 15:28:44) Hawu Meninp: except the archeologists
(12/10 15:29:13) Gardonis: Pretty pink markers.
(12/10 15:29:18) Alexander Rush: You may touch them but not move them
(12/10 15:29:26) Thumbs up from Gete-aya'aa
(12/10 15:29:52) Hawu Meninp: ok
(12/10 15:30:00) Alexander Rush: We will collect them after we have received enough information
(12/10 15:30:11) Ranger10: Wow
(12/10 15:30:23) Annabelle: nov 18th
(12/10 15:30:26) Alexander Rush: So, you'll find our current fragments in our office
(12/10 15:30:28) Josie: so, we find them and report to you?
(12/10 15:30:36) Alexander Rush: Yes Josie
(12/10 15:30:40) Josie: ok
(12/10 15:30:46) Alexander Rush: and collaboration will take place on the forum
(12/10 15:30:56) Ranger10 thinks this is very exciting!!
(12/10 15:31:12) Hawu Meninp cheers
(12/10 15:31:28) Alexander Rush: There's a clue in this hood about where our office is, I can't actually mention it in case this log falls into the wrong hands
(12/10 15:31:53) Alexander Rush: So that's basically all my discussion; did I miss anyone's questions?
(12/10 15:32:13) Josie: do we report in pm or on the forum
(12/10 15:32:14) Ranger10: have you sent them?
(12/10 15:32:22) Alexander Rush: Also does anyone not have the mission?
(12/10 15:32:37) Alexander Rush: Yes I sent them
(12/10 15:33:07) adi: thanks btw ^^
(12/10 15:33:07) AZT: i don't have it.
(12/10 15:33:07) Gete-aya'aa: to help keep certain "others" from messing with the fragments, I suggest reporting via KI-mail
(12/10 15:33:10) Alexander Rush: If you want to collaborate with other explorers, use the forum; if you just want to tell me use a pm
(12/10 15:33:26) Josie: KI-mail, ok, thanks :)
(12/10 15:33:50) Hawu Meninp: '1. Lost Rumors' is it's name
(12/10 15:33:50) Gete-aya'aa: but then I'm probably just paranoid
(12/10 15:33:50) Ranger10: do we start anywhere?
(12/10 15:33:51) Annabelle: check on Nov 18th
(12/10 15:34:03) Cyoor: So how do we start? Do I need to be able open that lost rumors mail? (Laggs abit)
(12/10 15:34:39) Alexander Rush: Yes, Lost Rumors is our mission; I'd suggest finding our office first
(12/10 15:34:45) Ranger10: where do we start???
(12/10 15:34:46) Gete-aya'aa leans left
(12/10 15:34:52) Gete-aya'aa: hey Zyxia

(12/10 15:37:08) Cyoor: No spoilers :P
(12/10 15:37:15) Alexander Rush: And keep looking for the next meeting time, once we've solved the message!
(12/10 15:37:31) Niysiechka: Great!
(12/10 15:37:53) adi: what if we haven't solved until you make another meeting??
(12/10 15:37:56) Gete-aya'aa: oh, one question for us late-comers....
