There is now a little point of light hovering over the sun/moon symbol in one of the halways in the Gahreeson fortress. Upon contact, it updates your relto in the form of a shell sitting at the end of the first spoke jutting from the spiral tablet bearing the sun/moon symbol. If you're unfamiliar with this page, it's located in the rainy cleft, near Zandi's trailer. I'm sure my description fails to do this justice, so if you haven't acquired this shell already, feel free to do so.

What interested me most about this is that it appears to be the first in a long series (contrary to good adventuring habits, I didn't count). However I have yet to find a second one, or any use for the first.

This seems to have been dubbed the "sparkly" and there is some discussion of them around here somewhere.

My hope is that once they have all been collected, and I go to stand in the middle, I will be transported somewhere interesting....

Has anyone who missed the Relto page the first time thru the cleft, tried going back to the rainy cleft for it, and is it still there?

Seeing that Teledahn also received a large update, I just did a search for another one of these things there but was unable to find one.

I'm hoping that it'll be a 'bubble' 'port. :D

[spoiler]Note that there are 12 spaces on the island, one for each month in the Gregorian calendar. Note that there are 12 alcoves in the hallway in the Gahreesen training building. Putting 12 and 12 together, I think our quest for sparklies is going to take another 11 months.[/spoiler]

When they said they'd have new content every month, I guess they weren't kidding.

*cough*

I think the idea is to have small updates every few days, with larger updates on a weekly and monthly basis. Anything connected to a 12-month timespan based on a single data point is purely speculative.

I bet it is the inside of the Volcano, and I bet that it is not a Sun/Moon but the Volcano. And I bet once inside the Volcano we'll have access to the Great Shaft.

I hope it's something completely new. I'd like to see URU Live get to the Great Shaft as To D'ni did, ie finish in multiplayer from where Prologue reached.

The Character on the "votive" for lack of a better word, does it resemble a certain character on the holo-imager? Or it also looks like a Japanese Kanji character...

Have you looked around the classroom in the 'hood, just under the ceiling?

It's the D'ni number 1, silly. First shell, first journey Age on the bookshelf, first month, whatever it means...

But it DOES say 1 on it.

I think I remember checking in the rain and it was still there.

As I posted elsewhere, the calendar explanation makes no sense to me because:

(a) Why would the D'ni use Earth months based on the frequency the Moon rotates around the Earth? They lived in other places than Earth and underground, where Moon rotation and seasons are not easily observed.

(b) If it were a calendar, what happens at the end of the year? Do they all get cleared off and we have to reacquire them?

(c) I don't think much of a calendar that requires the user to search, locate, and interact with an object so as to update the calendar.
