[spoiler](03/17 11:58:35) Chat.log started...
(03/17 11:58:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: Shorah all, Welcome to Heritage Night!
(03/17 11:58:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: Before we begin: ANNOUNCEMENTS!
(03/17 11:59:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: After HN there is a St. Patricks day party in the GUILD OF GREETERS PUB!
(03/17 11:59:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: to get there
(03/17 11:59:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: Go to Kirel, grab a GOG Shirt, like HNI has on here,
(03/17 11:59:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: And then go to the Nexus!
(03/17 11:59:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: You'll have a "Guild of Greeter's Pub" link on the first page of the nexus!
(03/17 12:00:06) Heritage Night Intercom waves hello
(03/17 12:00:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: So yeah
(03/17 12:00:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: St. Patrick's day!
(03/17 12:00:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: Be sure to wear something green! ;)
(03/17 12:00:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: Anyways-
(03/17 12:00:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: Drinks are chilled in the fountain.
(03/17 12:00:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: Snacks are elsewhere
(03/17 12:01:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: And today we have a special supply of Lucky Charms!
(03/17 12:01:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: Don't ask me why the bahro caterers decided to throw those out today,
(03/17 12:01:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: But...
(03/17 12:01:13) DimensionTravelerCalum shrugs
(03/17 12:01:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: Oh well!!
(03/17 12:01:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: To recap,
(03/17 12:01:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: Because it's been a while and the system has been buggy,
(03/17 12:02:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sharper had killed a Bahro in Noloben.
(03/17 12:02:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: In revenge for the murder of Wheely Engberg,
(03/17 12:02:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was not the Bahro he'd intended to kill, however,
(03/17 12:02:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: As revealed by a conversation held between Sharper and the formerly thought to be deceased Phil Henderson-
(03/17 12:02:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: A good Bahro had thrown itself into the path of sharper's gun
(03/17 12:03:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: Preventing him from sparking a war between us and the bad side of the Bahro...
(03/17 12:03:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: The ones who sought to destroy stuff just for destroying stuff...
(03/17 12:03:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: The side of the Bahro who hated any humanoid just because they resembled the D'ni.
(03/17 12:03:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: A month had passed now since these startling revelations,
(03/17 12:03:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: And we had not seen him, nor any Bahro,
(03/17 12:04:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: There was much concern among us,
(03/17 12:04:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: Phil was always going on about "He's coming" even before his disappearance in 2003.
(03/17 12:04:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: Nobody knew what he meant now,
(03/17 12:04:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: And i certainly have to wonder if his repeated 'he's coming's were in reference to the same He or not?
(03/17 12:05:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: I brought up before this about Kirel,
(03/17 12:05:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: And the Guild shirts,
(03/17 12:05:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: Well...
(03/17 12:05:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: When this week we call "Deception" began...
(03/17 12:05:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: Phil was back.
(03/17 12:05:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: What some refer to as "the March of Colors" had begun,
(03/17 12:05:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: Phil was out and about randomly walking through hoods,
(03/17 12:05:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: And he was talking about colors,
(03/17 12:06:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: And how this mysterious "he" liked them.
(03/17 12:06:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: or more specifically,
(03/17 12:06:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: Wondering if "he" would like the colors that were there.
(03/17 12:06:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: Phil was not forth coming about who "He" was.
(03/17 12:06:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: Just going on about how he would be here very soon.
(03/17 12:07:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: Those of us who remembered his stunt back before his "death"
(03/17 12:07:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: Were rightly concerned,
(03/17 12:07:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: Those words were last spoken above the Guild Hall,
(03/17 12:07:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: Where a D'ni King's tomb resided.
(03/17 12:07:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: was "he" the "he?"
(03/17 12:07:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: But- as Phil said, we would soon find out.
(03/17 12:07:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: Phil ended his march in Kirel,
(03/17 12:08:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: And later on many realized that Phil's color ramble was about the GUILDS!
(03/17 12:08:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: And how the DRC were bringing the guild structure back to the Cavern.
(03/17 12:08:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: We tell the guilds apart by color, after all-
(03/17 12:08:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: Green for Greeters,
(03/17 12:08:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: Black for Writers,
(03/17 12:08:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: pink for maintainers,
(03/17 12:08:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: Cyan for cartographers,
(03/17 12:09:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: Yellow for messengers,
(03/17 12:09:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: Heek- a lot of you here are all wearing green right now
(03/17 12:09:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: ;)
(03/17 12:09:27) sylster: :)
(03/17 12:09:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: So it was either the Guilds Phil was rambling about,
(03/17 12:09:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: Or....
(03/17 12:09:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: Or he was just high on Teledahn mushrooms.
(03/17 12:09:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: S)(Rug
(03/17 12:09:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: Who can say.
(03/17 12:10:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: I certainly don't know for sure.
(03/17 12:10:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: shortly after Phil left us bemused in Kirel,
(03/17 12:10:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: Cate Alexander showed up,
(03/17 12:10:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: And she was announcing the the Five Guild Pubs were being released "Soon"
(03/17 12:10:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: We'd been expecting this, to a degree, after Kirel had been released
(03/17 12:11:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: With the five shirts, and such,
(03/17 12:11:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: But now we'd have pubs to hold guild meets in!
(03/17 12:11:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: Not that we ever used them for such, really...
(03/17 12:11:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: -_-;
(03/17 12:11:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: Cate hoped that the pubs would be released that very day,
(03/17 12:11:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: But, alas, they were brought out the next day instead.
(03/17 12:12:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: Cate remained firmly focused on the guilds during this announcement,
(03/17 12:12:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: She refused to comment on Phil, Bahro, or even any Bahro War-
(03/17 12:12:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: Citing that she'd BELIEVE there was a war when she saw one!!
(03/17 12:12:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was a fairly stupid statement, given all the tropes that exist both in reality and in fiction regarding "Tempting fate"
(03/17 12:13:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: But then again- Cate wasn't really well known for her tact or vision.
(03/17 12:13:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: We saw more of Phil as the day went on,
(03/17 12:13:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: He kept going on about "he" and "Him"
(03/17 12:13:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: And many explorers began to wonder if Phil was just high.
(03/17 12:13:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: sharper came to Watcher's pub later that day,
(03/17 12:13:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: And shook that belief out of us with one statement:
(03/17 12:14:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: he'd seen Phil's "He"
(03/17 12:14:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: And said he knew who exactly Phil meant!
(03/17 12:14:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: But sharper played it coy,
(03/17 12:14:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: Refused to tell us WHO it was.
(03/17 12:14:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: He just said that he hoped we'd listen to Phil's "Him" when "He" showed up.
(03/17 12:15:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sharper also delivered the news that it was likely that the Bahro war would come to D'ni
(03/17 12:15:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: And the hostile side may very well destroy the cavern.
(03/17 12:15:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: He then told us he was planning on reopening an old area that might prove 'useful' if the war ever came to D'ni...
(03/17 12:15:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was his old spy room
(03/17 12:16:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: Which he'd used on the DRC during their time using the Tokotah building as their meeting room.
(03/17 12:16:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: After the first restoration, the DRC had abandoned it, and Sharper had little use for it now,
(03/17 12:16:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: So he was opening it up again!
(03/17 12:16:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: Much like the last time any explorers had found their way into it,
(03/17 12:16:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: There was a book inside-
(03/17 12:16:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: Phil's old Relto book.
(03/17 12:17:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sharper had gotten his hands on the book during Phil's brief kidnapped state in the first restoration,
(03/17 12:17:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sharper had intended to give it back to Phil when he was released...but...
(03/17 12:17:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: Fate intervened,
(03/17 12:18:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: And Phil 'died' on the Guild hall that day, not having his Relto Book with him.
(03/17 12:18:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: But as this was all in the past- and Phil was alive and even had a new Relto book.
(03/17 12:18:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: sharper re-opened the area.
(03/17 12:18:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was the next day, and the link to the spyroom was in the same place in Teledahn,
(03/17 12:19:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: Phil's Relto is exactly as it was back in the old days,
(03/17 12:19:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: When the Great Scream reset every Relto and changed everything---
(03/17 12:19:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: This one Relto refused to change.
(03/17 12:19:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: It sits silently in the rain, as a reminder of those days.
(03/17 12:20:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: But this day was not marked alone by Phil's Relto...
(03/17 12:20:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: Michael Engberg- who had gone missing shortly after Wheely had died- was back.
(03/17 12:20:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: He appeared in Ae'gura that day, and explorers were mostly overwhelmed with joy to see him again~
(03/17 12:21:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: Marie Sutherland appeared too, to chat with him,
(03/17 12:21:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: Michael didn't stay long,
(03/17 12:21:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: Only long enough to dispel the rumors that he was Phil's "He"
(03/17 12:21:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: And to check in to let everyone know he was okay.
(03/17 12:21:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: I don't think anyone's heard from him since, excepting other DRC members.
(03/17 12:22:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: Later that night---
(03/17 12:22:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: Someone else returned from the past.
(03/17 12:22:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: Someone who had vanished just before the first restoration had closed...
(03/17 12:22:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: One Doctor Richard Watson.
(03/17 12:22:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: Watson showed up at the Concert Hall,
(03/17 12:23:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: And was soon swarmed by explorers,
(03/17 12:23:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: He told us that he was pretty sure that he was Phil's "he."
(03/17 12:23:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: Apparently, the two had spent a lot of time together after their respective departures from D'ni.
(03/17 12:23:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: They spent a lot of time with the Bahro-
(03/17 12:24:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: Which was pretty much a surprise to no-one.
(03/17 12:24:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: Watson said that Phil could communicate with them better than he could,
(03/17 12:24:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: but he confirmed that there was a war,
(03/17 12:24:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: A civil war among the Bahro which the good side was losing.
(03/17 12:24:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: but finally- he gave us the news we so desperately wanted to hear
(03/17 12:24:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: Yeesha was alive, and on Releeshan,
(03/17 12:25:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: With the D'ni survivors!!
(03/17 12:25:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: Watson told us that he was unsure of how to proceed now that he was back, and excused himself after that.
(03/17 12:25:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: But the next day he returned,
(03/17 12:25:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: After a brief visit from sharper in Watchers, Watson visited there too.
(03/17 12:26:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: He told us that the Bahro indeed had been freed from the Tablet-
(03/17 12:26:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: The game, Myst V, from which we knew about it was based upon Watson's own journey
(03/17 12:26:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: He didn't know how accurate the game from Cyan was,
(03/17 12:26:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: But he knew that it was close enough,
(03/17 12:26:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: The story was the same, at any rate.
(03/17 12:26:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: He gave the Bahro their tablet,
(03/17 12:27:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: And they were free.
(03/17 12:27:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: He said that he no longer believed in a physical restoration of D'ni,
(03/17 12:27:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: And so he told us:
(03/17 12:27:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: "Find a way, make a home.
(03/17 12:27:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: Those eerie words from the dream many of us still have.
(03/17 12:27:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: Dreams....
(03/17 12:27:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: What funny things.
(03/17 12:27:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: Meanwhile- on Phil's Relto.
(03/17 12:28:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: Phil himself had appeared
(03/17 12:28:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: Explorers were gathered there, and Phil just linked in,
(03/17 12:28:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: Most of his words were rambling and incoherent from what reports tell me,
(03/17 12:28:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: But a few things stuck out
(03/17 12:28:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: "The answers are there, man. You just have to listen."
(03/17 12:29:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: Listen to what? it was asked?
(03/17 12:29:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: "Her."
(03/17 12:29:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: We can only assume that he meant Yeesha,
(03/17 12:29:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: And that she herself would be coming soon.
(03/17 12:29:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: Coming to D'ni--
(03/17 12:29:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: So many of us wanted to hear what she had to say.
(03/17 12:30:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: Phil then backed off to the edge of his old Relto, and jumped,
(03/17 12:30:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: Reports are vague on whether or not he was seen after that or not,
(03/17 12:30:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: But i can only assume that he went into hiding again.
(03/17 12:30:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: The day after this-
(03/17 12:30:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: Watson came to a hood like this one,
(03/17 12:31:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: In a room, like this one,
(03/17 12:31:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: And he gave a speech.
(03/17 12:31:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: I've lost my notes on the full speech, at the moment,
(03/17 12:31:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: So I only have what's written in the HN Document journal to go off of for tonight,
(03/17 12:31:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: But it's a good speech,
(03/17 12:31:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: You all should go find it and read it whenever you get a chance...
(03/17 12:32:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: Among other important things,
(03/17 12:32:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: Watson spoke up in favor of the guilds,
(03/17 12:32:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: Citing that the explorer's concern about the guild's involvement in the fall was not the guild's fault--
(03/17 12:32:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: But people's pride.
(03/17 12:32:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: He encouraged explorers to join the guilds,
(03/17 12:32:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: And to beware of pride and disunity,
(03/17 12:32:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: We were already fractured
(03/17 12:33:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: We didn't need to be broken any more than we already had.
(03/17 12:33:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: there were many explorers that needed to learn to unite together,
(03/17 12:33:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: Not fighting amongst out selves.
(03/17 12:33:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: He also told us that
(03/17 12:33:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: While he didn't think D'ni should be restored physically,
(03/17 12:33:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: That there was still much to be learned from this place,
(03/17 12:33:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: the stories, and the lessons here,
(03/17 12:34:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: All of it could be applied to our surface lives.
(03/17 12:34:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: He warned us about the Bahro war, and told us that the hostile ones showed no reason for their destruction.
(03/17 12:34:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: There's a bit here that's fully quoted, so I'll continue on that...
(03/17 12:35:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: "The good Bahro protecting us have created a grand Deception for our peace of mind-- an illusion that all is well here in the Cavern and the ages."
(03/17 12:35:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: "We have been told that Destruction is Coming."
(03/17 12:36:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: "I believe specifically that the destruction is coming to the Cavern, but I could be wrong about that."
(03/17 12:36:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: he went on to tell us that Yeesha had been fighting for us.
(03/17 12:36:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: She was searching ages en-mass to find something to end the Bahro war,
(03/17 12:36:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: Or at protect us when the Bahro protecting us could no longer do such
(03/17 12:37:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: But- Watson told us- it was looking more likely that she would not find what she wanted.
(03/17 12:37:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: That was why the guilds were becoming important
(03/17 12:37:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: New ages,
(03/17 12:37:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: New worlds
(03/17 12:37:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: New places,
(03/17 12:37:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: Any number of which could hold the key to ending the war,
(03/17 12:37:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: And it was coming,
(03/17 12:37:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: The good side was losing,
(03/17 12:37:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: And if we didn't find a way to protect ourselves...
(03/17 12:37:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: We might become their next target.
(03/17 12:38:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: And as that's where the end of this entry is,
(03/17 12:38:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: I'd like to go off on a tangent for a moment.
(03/17 12:38:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: the Bahro are very dangerous creatures- when enraged.
(03/17 12:38:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: If they wanted to- they could fill the skies of every age with their wings.
(03/17 12:38:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: Blanking it all out.
(03/17 12:39:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: They've done it on ages like Releeshan--
(03/17 12:39:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: Other places...
(03/17 12:39:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: you stand here now under that same deception that we were under then,
(03/17 12:39:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: That all is well...
(03/17 12:39:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: I've got to tell you now that it's not.
(03/17 12:39:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: For what you'll learn next week,
(03/17 12:39:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: Well...
(03/17 12:40:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: You'll understand that this peace that we have here is temporary.
(03/17 12:40:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: There will come a day when the Bahro return
(03/17 12:40:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: When we can no longer come to D'ni...
(03/17 12:40:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: They've been led away,
(03/17 12:40:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: For our protection as much as their own...
(03/17 12:41:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: There is still a danger that the Bahro wanting our deaths will realize that Yeesha has been deceiving them...
(03/17 12:41:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: And they will return.
(03/17 12:41:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: For now- we sit and play and laugh...
(03/17 12:41:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: Personally- I believe that this is what we are meant to do, in a sense.
(03/17 12:41:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: 'make a home'
(03/17 12:41:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: We love this cavern,
(03/17 12:41:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: Many of us staying here through it all even when it seems like there;s nothing to do.
(03/17 12:41:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: And yet we stay.
(03/17 12:42:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: Many of us decided it was best to leave-
(03/17 12:42:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: So as to help the war...
(03/17 12:42:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: And yet we returned.
(03/17 12:42:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: The cavern calls to us,
(03/17 12:42:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: Even when we're here,
(03/17 12:42:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: There is a subtle thing,
(03/17 12:42:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: Asking us to stay...
(03/17 12:42:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: What it is....i can't say.
(03/17 12:42:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: this place....
(03/17 12:42:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: It's still in danger,
(03/17 12:42:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: If anything- the recent KI issues are only highlighting that fact.
(03/17 12:43:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: Reminding us that Destruction can still fall upon us at any moment.
(03/17 12:43:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: That any time we link away could be our last.
(03/17 12:43:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: There is hope, yes,
(03/17 12:43:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: Many explorers still work towards finding ways of progressing things
(03/17 12:43:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: Towards ending the Bahro conflict,
(03/17 12:43:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: But even so-- the deception remains,
(03/17 12:44:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: I can't say for sure whether or not that's a good thing,
(03/17 12:44:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: But...
(03/17 12:44:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: We can't remain divided like this.
(03/17 12:44:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: If you find it within yourselves to be able to help out,
(03/17 12:44:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: In any way,
(03/17 12:45:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: Be it...
(03/17 12:45:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: Be it donating,
(03/17 12:45:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: Or joining a guild
(03/17 12:45:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: Or heck,
(03/17 12:45:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: Even just pulling together some fun games,
(03/17 12:45:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: Or even parties
(03/17 12:45:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: Well,
(03/17 12:45:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: That's all you can do.
(03/17 12:45:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: I myself...
(03/17 12:45:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: I help by doing Heritage Night.
(03/17 12:46:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: I help out where i can,
(03/17 12:46:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: and if that's all *I* can do,
(03/17 12:46:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: Then that's what I'll do so long as I feel I am able.
(03/17 12:46:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: I hope you all feel the same,
(03/17 12:46:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: That doing all you're able to do is all that you're required to do...
(03/17 12:47:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: This cavern...these ages...
(03/17 12:47:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: Yeesha has referred to it as "URU" once,
(03/17 12:47:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: And that spelling,
(03/17 12:47:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: I think it's the best thing of all.
(03/17 12:47:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: You.
(03/17 12:47:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: Are.
(03/17 12:47:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: You.
(03/17 12:47:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: All that we do here...
(03/17 12:47:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: It reflects who we are, and what we're capable of.
(03/17 12:47:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: And...I fell...
(03/17 12:48:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: I fell here into a role that fits me,
(03/17 12:48:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: I didn't even realize it.
(03/17 12:48:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: I think that's all anyone can ask for.
(03/17 12:48:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: A place that they can feel at home,
(03/17 12:48:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: I feel that this is what we are meant to do by making a home,
(03/17 12:48:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: Though...we still need to find a way...
(03/17 12:49:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: Somewhere...some when...someday...
(03/17 12:49:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: So I'll close tonight's HN,
(03/17 12:49:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: I hope to see you all again next week,
(03/17 12:49:26) DimensionTravelerCalum bows

(03/24 11:57:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: Next week is Easter!
(03/24 11:57:16) skuavi: :)
(03/24 11:57:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: So no HN next week,
(03/24 11:57:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: But sometime after that
(03/24 11:57:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: I havent decided when
(03/24 11:57:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: Will be the last week of this HN cycle
(03/24 11:57:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: Covering the major highlights of THIS restoration so far!
(03/24 11:58:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: Anyways,
(03/24 11:58:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: Other than that, this HN will go about the usual way,
(03/24 11:58:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: But do keep your eyes open for the next HN event!
(03/24 11:58:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: I'll post about it on the fourms,
(03/24 11:59:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: And on our website:
(03/24 11:59:03) DimensionTravelerCalum:
(03/24 11:59:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: So with that out of the way...
(03/24 11:59:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: Let's begin this week, shall we?
(03/24 11:59:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: This final week of the Second Restoration has come to be known as "Exodus"
(03/24 12:00:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: Why?
(03/24 12:00:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: There are a few reasons for it,
(03/24 12:00:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: But most of which will become clearer at the end of the show.
(03/24 12:00:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was November 1st, 2007.
(03/24 12:00:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: 11:00 AM.
(03/24 12:00:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: Ae'gura....
(03/24 12:00:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: Cate Alexander, the DRC's head fundswoman,
(03/24 12:01:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: linked in and made the simple announcement
(03/24 12:01:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: "I am leaving the DRC."
(03/24 12:01:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: "..."
(03/24 12:01:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: That was our initial reaction to the news
(03/24 12:01:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: And then PANIC.
(03/24 12:01:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: Many of us, despite hating Cate for her... "Ideals"...
(03/24 12:01:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: Still respected that she was a funding source for the cavern,
(03/24 12:02:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: Her abrupt departure meant that the DRC lost half of their funding,
(03/24 12:02:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: the other half was tied up with the game corporation, Game Tap...
(03/24 12:02:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: But we had a disturbing feeling about this announcement,
(03/24 12:02:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: Things would not be going well.
(03/24 12:02:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC's remaining members tried to keep up the appearance that they weren't affected by any of this,
(03/24 12:03:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: they announced that Ahnonay would be released later that week,
(03/24 12:03:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: But still..
(03/24 12:03:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: They too were baffled by Cate's sudden actions.
(03/24 12:03:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: Cate's reasons for leaving?
(03/24 12:03:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: "I'm not getting a return on my investment."
(03/24 12:03:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: She said...
(03/24 12:04:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: Something like that, anyways
(03/24 12:04:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: ironic, in a sense,
(03/24 12:04:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: Cate had said in the months before that she would
(03/24 12:04:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: "Believe a Bahro war when" she saw one.
(03/24 12:05:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: And now here she was leaving?
(03/24 12:05:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: It seemed she believed the rumors more then she let on,
(03/24 12:05:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: I think she was probably getting out of dodge,
(03/24 12:05:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: As fast as she possibly could...
(03/24 12:05:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: the very next day, Ahnonay was released
(03/24 12:06:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: I don't need to go into the details of that age,
(03/24 12:06:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: It's history is documented well enough,
(03/24 12:06:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: Kadish owned it, made it a scam of sorts,
(03/24 12:06:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: Tricked people,
(03/24 12:06:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: Then he died,
(03/24 12:06:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: And Yeesha meddled,
(03/24 12:06:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: Added link cloths,
(03/24 12:06:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: Blah blah,
(03/24 12:06:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: Same deal,
(03/24 12:07:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: Unlike previous times explorers had visited Ahnonay, there were a few differences,
(03/24 12:07:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: Mainly because now it was 'finished' being restored.
(03/24 12:07:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: But also...
(03/24 12:07:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: Some of Yeesha's changes had been changed as well,
(03/24 12:07:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: Due to the Scream,
(03/24 12:07:40) Kouma recalls fond memories of that Age.
(03/24 12:07:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: So much damage felt a whole year after it, almost,
(03/24 12:08:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: Marie Sutherland was the only DRC member we saw that day,
(03/24 12:08:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: She was just as confused and worried and
(03/24 12:08:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: Ahnonay-ed
(03/24 12:08:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: As the rest of us
(03/24 12:08:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: ;) heh..
(03/24 12:08:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sorry, it's a lame pun,
(03/24 12:08:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: But it accurately describes it,
(03/24 12:09:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: Cate's sudden departure was an echo of the First restoration's end days all over again
(03/24 12:09:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: Only now it was slower,
(03/24 12:09:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: We could see the end coming,
(03/24 12:09:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: It wouldn't be as quick as it had been before,
(03/24 12:09:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: We still had the Game Tap funding, after all,
(03/24 12:09:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: But we knew, somehow...
(03/24 12:09:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: We just knew.
(03/24 12:09:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: As I previously mentioned, some explorers had been to Ahnonay prior to the scream,
(03/24 12:10:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: As such, they knew how to solve the puzzles there,
(03/24 12:10:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: Even if things were a little bit different,
(03/24 12:10:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: It only took a day to get around those changes,
(03/24 12:10:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: And by just after midnight,
(03/24 12:10:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: Explorers had found their way into the former Island home of Atrus
(03/24 12:10:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: K'veer.
(03/24 12:11:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: i say home in a dual sense,
(03/24 12:11:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: you all probably know what happened to Atrus,
(03/24 12:11:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: He lived with his father there,
(03/24 12:11:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: For a time...
(03/24 12:11:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: Then was imprisoned there,
(03/24 12:11:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: Two types of homes in the same place.
(03/24 12:11:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: Of course,
(03/24 12:11:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: K'veer as we now saw it was more like what we saw in Myst V, the game that was based off of Dr. Watson's journey,
(03/24 12:12:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: Than what we saw in other Myst games,
(03/24 12:12:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: There were some different things, naturally,
(03/24 12:12:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: There were a few removed doors,
(03/24 12:12:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: And that annoying bubble taking up half the main room was gone now,
(03/24 12:12:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: I cant imagine the Bahro would have left it standing
(03/24 12:13:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: But,
(03/24 12:13:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was because of the fact that...
(03/24 12:13:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: At one point, K'veer had been the home of the Keep,
(03/24 12:13:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: And the Tablet that had enslaved the Bahro race,
(03/24 12:13:41) Agent Owl salutes
(03/24 12:13:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: Than any Bahro who came to destroy D'ni would avoid the place,
(03/24 12:14:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: We assumed K'veer would be a safe haven should a conflict arise...
(03/24 12:14:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: And by the Maker....
(03/24 12:14:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: Did one arise!
(03/24 12:14:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: November 3rd,
(03/24 12:14:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: The Bahro war arrived in D'ni.
(03/24 12:14:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: Suddenly, without warning,
(03/24 12:14:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: Bahro were swarming Ae'gura instances,
(03/24 12:15:00) Kouma shivers as he hears a Bahro chirp.
(03/24 12:15:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: All over the place- they filled the skies,
(03/24 12:15:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: Attacking and using their powers against one another,
(03/24 12:15:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: Destruction was here
(03/24 12:15:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: They were here.
(03/24 12:15:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: Bahro were everywhere
(03/24 12:15:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: And they were fighting.
(03/24 12:15:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: The deception was shattered
(03/24 12:15:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: Scary, isn't it?
(03/24 12:15:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: That the Bahro, who up until now were long invisible to us,
(03/24 12:15:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: Were now so visible?
(03/24 12:16:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: Flying and swooping and attacking...
(03/24 12:16:09) ~Kyrie Eleison~ nods her head. . . YES!
(03/24 12:16:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: People in Ae'gura would report that they saw some 'dive bombers' coming at them from the tops of stair ways,
(03/24 12:16:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: Or that they were swooping around in wide circles,
(03/24 12:17:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: The main cluster visible was around Kerath's arch
(03/24 12:17:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was....
(03/24 12:17:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: Chaos,
(03/24 12:17:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: Anarchy
(03/24 12:17:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: a nightmare come to life,
(03/24 12:17:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: Its a mesmerizing sight,
(03/24 12:17:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: If you ever see the Bahro properly swooping around as you did then...
(03/24 12:18:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: You'd understand terror unlike you've never known before.
(03/24 12:18:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: The Bahro weren't just confined to Ae'gura either,
(03/24 12:18:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: Hoods- Relto- private ages-
(03/24 12:18:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: Bahro activity was at an all out high,
(03/24 12:18:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: ....
(03/24 12:18:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: and there was something more.
(03/24 12:18:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: Even though it was never confirmed,
(03/24 12:19:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: A few explorers thought they saw a being on top of Kerath's arch,
(03/24 12:19:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: Moving.
(03/24 12:19:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: Observing.
(03/24 12:19:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: Standing right below the light as if it were trying to go unnoticed.
(03/24 12:19:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: I myself saw it,
(03/24 12:19:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: I believe that there was something there, personally,
(03/24 12:19:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: But who it was, or if it really was there,
(03/24 12:20:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: We can't say for certain.
(03/24 12:20:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: I've never seen anything up there since,
(03/24 12:20:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: but make of that what you will.
(03/24 12:20:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: some of those that believe it was really there think that it was the source of this war
(03/24 12:20:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: The 'king' of the 'twisted' side.
(03/24 12:21:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: the Bahro who- we all know- had his shoulder skinned in Esher's lab on Noloben,
(03/24 12:21:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: Myst V- a game with many dubious aspects to it- was accurate in this respect,
(03/24 12:21:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: Esher had skinned a Bahro,
(03/24 12:22:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: And used his skin as a personal linking cloth!
(03/24 12:22:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: And the Bahro was still alive-
(03/24 12:22:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: Leading the conflict and spurring it on.
(03/24 12:22:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: Phil Henderson gave a brief appearance, some reported,
(03/24 12:22:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: Saying that "They are coming..." no... "They are here."
(03/24 12:22:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: So, you ask,
(03/24 12:23:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: Was this what Yeesha's sent dream was warning us about?
(03/24 12:23:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: Perhaps,
(03/24 12:23:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: Perhaps not
(03/24 12:23:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC were just as lost as we were,
(03/24 12:23:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: and Kodama used it as an excuse to leave,
(03/24 12:23:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: He went up to the surface, and, although he never told us this himself,
(03/24 12:24:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: We heard that he was secretly looking to find more funding for the cavern.
(03/24 12:24:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: For the restoration,
(03/24 12:24:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: Surely we'd need it in the days to come.
(03/24 12:24:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: Day four-
(03/24 12:24:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: The Bahro were still swarming.
(03/24 12:24:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: And the DRC announced the winners of the Great Zero stained glass project,
(03/24 12:24:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: Three designs were sent out to the hoods and put up-
(03/24 12:24:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: But during this chaotic time,
(03/24 12:25:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: I don't think many people noticed as much.
(03/24 12:25:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: Ae'gura was getting more chaotic,
(03/24 12:25:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: Bahro were now actively prowling the streets over screaming through the air above us,
(03/24 12:26:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: Never before or since have I seen so many explorers wearing their Yeesha shirts in a hope that the Bahro would leave them alone...
(03/24 12:26:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: I myself wore mine
(03/24 12:26:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: But...
(03/24 12:26:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: It wasn't for any form of protection
(03/24 12:26:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: It simply...
(03/24 12:26:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: It simply just felt right.
(03/24 12:26:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: we wore our shirts,
(03/24 12:26:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: And we waited for Yeesha to do something.
(03/24 12:26:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: Surely....if not her...
(03/24 12:26:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: Then who else?
(03/24 12:26:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: Day five...
(03/24 12:26:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: November fifth.
(03/24 12:27:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: A Bahro appeared outside the window in K'veer.
(03/24 12:27:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: Right on the ledge, even though there's not much out there to stand on.
(03/24 12:27:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was watching the explorers in there
(03/24 12:27:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: so much for a safe haven.
(03/24 12:27:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: -_-;
(03/24 12:27:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: they panicked,
(03/24 12:27:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: Some prepared to defend themselves...
(03/24 12:27:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: Others inched for their Relto books...
(03/24 12:28:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: But this bahro
(03/24 12:28:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: ...he simply went to the room where Atrus had been imprisoned
(03/24 12:28:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: Warped a book stand onto the ground in the center of the room
(03/24 12:28:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: And gave us a linking book to another of Atrus' homes...
(03/24 12:28:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: Myst island.
(03/24 12:28:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: Soon after that,
(03/24 12:29:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: The Bahro left, but two more appeared
(03/24 12:29:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: And with them...
(03/24 12:29:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: A woman
(03/24 12:29:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: Red hair
(03/24 12:29:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: Blue eyes
(03/24 12:29:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was Yeesha
(03/24 12:29:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: She had a speech for us,
(03/24 12:29:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: Which is long and yet short,
(03/24 12:29:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: Simple and yet complex,
(03/24 12:29:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: She had rehearsed it,
(03/24 12:29:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: And ignored explorers questions instead for saying what she needed to say,
(03/24 12:30:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: She told us what we already knew, to begin with
(03/24 12:30:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: "Destruction is almost upon us."
(03/24 12:30:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: "They are here, fighting in war."
(03/24 12:30:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: The Bahro had been freed,
(03/24 12:30:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: And most of them sided with Us, with the D'ni, with Yeesha,
(03/24 12:30:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: And with "Good."
(03/24 12:30:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: That was their choice.
(03/24 12:31:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sacrificing everything they had for our "Comfort."
(03/24 12:31:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: Personally, I never asked them to do any such thing,
(03/24 12:31:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: But i respect them for that choice.
(03/24 12:31:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was theirs to make.
(03/24 12:31:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: and make it they did.
(03/24 12:31:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: there was another side,
(03/24 12:31:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: That had not sided with us,
(03/24 12:31:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: or with "Good."
(03/24 12:31:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: They had chosen evil,
(03/24 12:32:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: And they basked in the opportunity to do whatever they wanted--
(03/24 12:32:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: "Revenge is their only excuse." Yeesha told us
(03/24 12:32:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: She told us about their leader
(03/24 12:32:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: whose shoulder had been skinned.
(03/24 12:32:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: She told us that she had something that his side wanted,
(03/24 12:32:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: Though what exactly it is remains up to speculation
(03/24 12:33:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: Many think it was the piece of skin the leader was missing,
(03/24 12:33:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: Others believe the Watcher's prophecy,
(03/24 12:33:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: That Yeesha was pregnant at the time,
(03/24 12:33:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: And that the bad Bahro wanted that child.
(03/24 12:33:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was due to her phrasing,
(03/24 12:33:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: "Destruction is coming. It is almost here.
(03/24 12:34:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: I do not know how long they will seek what I carry.
(03/24 12:34:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: it could only be days, It could be months."
(03/24 12:34:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: She told us that she would delay them as long as she could,
(03/24 12:35:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: "but, in the meantime, you must find a way. You must find a home."
(03/24 12:35:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: She promised to return in the future if things went well, and would offer us aid...
(03/24 12:35:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: if things didn't go well...
(03/24 12:35:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: We don't need to understand the heavy weight behind that sentence.
(03/24 12:35:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: Regardless, she said that we would have to be ready for her return,
(03/24 12:36:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: And when destruction returned to D'ni
(03/24 12:36:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: We must have found out way.
(03/24 12:36:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: We MUST have found our home.
(03/24 12:36:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: And with that, she left,
(03/24 12:36:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: And instantly,
(03/24 12:36:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: The Bahro around Kerath's arch and across the many many ages also vanished,
(03/24 12:36:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: Some for her protection,
(03/24 12:37:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: Some for what she carried,
(03/24 12:37:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: All of them had a reason for it though,
(03/24 12:37:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: And so they left.
(03/24 12:37:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: That night, we received a KI mail from the DRC-
(03/24 12:37:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sutherland and Laxman were leaving,
(03/24 12:37:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: Following Kodama in his search for funding,
(03/24 12:37:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: For finding a new way,
(03/24 12:37:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: Inspired by what Yeesha had said,
(03/24 12:37:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: They asked us to do the same...
(03/24 12:37:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: The next day,
(03/24 12:38:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sharper showed up out of nowhere, confused by why everyone had left,
(03/24 12:38:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: When he found out what had happened,
(03/24 12:38:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: He too, left,
(03/24 12:38:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: And so for a time,
(03/24 12:38:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: We were alone.
(03/24 12:38:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: Only the ResEngs to keep us company...
(03/24 12:38:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: In the months that followed what Carl Palmner's come to call "The Day of Yeesha"
(03/24 12:38:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: the DRC did not return,
(03/24 12:38:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: And grave news had begun to circulate
(03/24 12:39:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: game tap's owners were planning to sell them out,
(03/24 12:39:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: And so with them- went the funding.
(03/24 12:39:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: at any rate,
(03/24 12:39:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: We took it as a sign,
(03/24 12:39:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: Maybe the Bahro war would be going more towards the good side,
(03/24 12:39:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: Maybe if we left,
(03/24 12:39:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: They wouldn't need to protect us?
(03/24 12:40:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: and so over the next few months, we began an exodus,
(03/24 12:40:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: Leaving the cavern- exchanging contact info with friends-
(03/24 12:40:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: Spending the last few months as best as we could.
(03/24 12:40:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: We never forgot D'ni however,
(03/24 12:40:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: Not for those two years after the cavern closed for a second time in april of 2008.
(03/24 12:41:04) DimensionTravelerCalum closes the book in front of him
(03/24 12:41:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: As i'm bringing the start of the next restoration to the next HN
(03/24 12:41:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: Which I don't know when it will be exactly,
(03/24 12:41:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: I'd like to go off on something here,
(03/24 12:41:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: It's been over five years now,
(03/24 12:41:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: Since that day,
(03/24 12:41:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: Since Yeesha left
(03/24 12:42:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: If she had a daughter- as the Watcher Prophecy said- then that daughter is probably the most sought after person in all the multiverse.
(03/24 12:42:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: If the skin piece is what they are after...?
(03/24 12:42:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: But, there is something more.
(03/24 12:42:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: recently, i had a conversation with someone.
(03/24 12:42:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: What if the thing the dark Bahro wanted was neither of these items?
(03/24 12:43:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: A third thing-
(03/24 12:43:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: Something that everyone would want their hands on...
(03/24 12:43:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: The Descriptive Book to Earth.
(03/24 12:43:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: It's just conjecture, I'll admit,
(03/24 12:43:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: But it's a frightening one.
(03/24 12:43:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: If Yeesha has lured the Bahro war away from us with the promise of that book...
(03/24 12:43:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: Then there are many reasons for the conflict to be over it.
(03/24 12:43:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: The good Bahro too, see D'ni as their home.
(03/24 12:44:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: if albeit one of many,
(03/24 12:44:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: They make their caves in the rooftop,
(03/24 12:44:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: And we hear their cries almost daily.
(03/24 12:44:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: We too, live on earth,
(03/24 12:44:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: And we would be lost should the book be destroyed,
(03/24 12:44:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: Imagine,
(03/24 12:44:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: If we are out in an age,
(03/24 12:44:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: And earth's book were destroyed?
(03/24 12:45:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: Suddenly- we would be scattered,
(03/24 12:45:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: No way to return to home.
(03/24 12:45:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: if the bad Bahro want Earth's book,
(03/24 12:45:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: it would be the ultimate revenge for them,
(03/24 12:45:31) Kouma ponders that horrid thought.
(03/24 12:45:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: Against Esher,
(03/24 12:45:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: Against the D'ni who enslaved them...
(03/24 12:45:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: In one single stroke,
(03/24 12:45:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: A Bahro can behead an Urwin.
(03/24 12:45:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: In one single stroke...
(03/24 12:46:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: They could destroy D'ni and Earth without even TOUCHING the planet.
(03/24 12:46:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: It's a terrifying though...
(03/24 12:46:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: And at the same time,
(03/24 12:46:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: It leaves the words of the dream in a horrible new light.
(03/24 12:46:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: "Find a way."
(03/24 12:46:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: "Make a home."
(03/24 12:46:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: Make.
(03/24 12:46:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: A.
(03/24 12:46:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: Home.
(03/24 12:47:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: It sends a chill down the spine,
(03/24 12:47:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: Does it not?
(03/24 12:47:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: Watson himself has alluded to this,
(03/24 12:47:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: The way to end the war is to explore new ages,
(03/24 12:47:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: To find a way to end the conflict....
(03/24 12:47:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: If we were able to pull off the impossible...
(03/24 12:47:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: Duplicate the Earth Book through sheer chance,
(03/24 12:48:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: Or find a duplicate of it somewhere in the grand branches of the tree...
(03/24 12:48:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: Imagine how easy it would be to end the Bahro war?
(03/24 12:48:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: Trick the dark side into possibly destroying the wrong book?
(03/24 12:48:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: Or if not,
(03/24 12:48:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: We could move to some new age...
(03/24 12:48:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: Make a new home there...
(03/24 12:48:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: Like the D'ni did, moving to Releeshan...
(03/24 12:49:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: The implications of it all are staggering to imagine,
(03/24 12:49:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: is with that chilling note that I will end this week's Heritage Night.
(03/24 12:49:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: Keep an eye on the site for news on the next HN,
(03/24 12:49:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: And...
(03/24 12:49:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: Keep you eyes to the sky, travelers,
(03/24 12:49:48) Alien claps her hands
(03/24 12:49:49) Kouma claps his hands
(03/24 12:49:52) Olrick140 claps his hands
(03/24 12:49:54) sylster claps her hands
(03/24 12:49:54) Korora claps his hands
(03/24 12:49:55) Yoplitein claps his hands
(03/24 12:49:57) DimensionTravelerCalum bows
(03/24 12:49:57) Midna claps her hands
(03/24 12:49:58) S/-\/\/l)Y claps her hands
(03/24 12:49:58) Kouma cheers
(03/24 12:50:03) Heart claps her hands
(03/24 12:50:03) ...Chat.log stopped.

(04/14 11:58:32) From DimensionTravelerCalum in Heritage Night's Hood: HN STARTING NOW!

(04/14 12:00:02) toffy leans right
(04/14 12:00:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: Also... be sure to keep an eye on the HN website for more news on the Starwars HN parody i've been working on.
(04/14 12:00:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: That's
(04/14 12:00:34) Tom(Samoth) leans left
(04/14 12:00:34) Pote leans right
(04/14 12:00:35) DimensionTravelerCalum rubs his hands together then opens his notes
(04/14 12:00:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: Alright then,
(04/14 12:00:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: Lets get this started,shall we?
(04/14 12:00:45) Yark Dozer waves hello
(04/14 12:00:50) Alien cheers
(04/14 12:00:52) DimensionTravelerCalum closes his eyes to take a breath...
(04/14 12:00:53) toffy nods her head
(04/14 12:00:56) Pote leans right
(04/14 12:01:06) sylster leans left
(04/14 12:01:06) DimensionTravelerCalum takes a few more breaths just because... :P
(04/14 12:01:11) Sanguina: :)
(04/14 12:01:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: The second restoration had ended with a slow and steady drain.
(04/14 12:01:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: The first had had its plug pulled rather suddenly.
(04/14 12:01:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: Both were accountable to the same fact:
(04/14 12:01:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: Funding was lost.
(04/14 12:01:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: Yeesha- and the Bahro who sided with her-
(04/14 12:01:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: Were gone,
(04/14 12:02:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: Off to who knows where planning and doing who knows what.
(04/14 12:02:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: All we knew was that they would return some day,
(04/14 12:02:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: If we were lucky.
(04/14 12:02:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: Many explorers- by the end of april 2008, realized that things would be quiet in D'ni for some time to come.
(04/14 12:02:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: Most left,
(04/14 12:02:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: leaving to the surface, taking the life lessons learned from D'ni and applying them elsewhere
(04/14 12:03:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: Some stayed
(04/14 12:03:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: Looking to make sure that the gears beneath the surface continued to turn slowly, but steadily.
(04/14 12:03:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: D'ni was asleep.
(04/14 12:03:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: The years moved on,
(04/14 12:03:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: But many explorers would always stop to wonder
(04/14 12:03:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: "what's going on now?"
(04/14 12:04:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: We all still felt the call,
(04/14 12:04:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: Itching at the backs of our hearts,
(04/14 12:04:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: But it was quiet for the time being,
(04/14 12:04:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: Soon enough though,
(04/14 12:04:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: It began to gnaw harder, louder,
(04/14 12:04:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: and so the cycle began again.
(04/14 12:04:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was almost two years later now,
(04/14 12:04:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: In 2010,
(04/14 12:05:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: The call was ringing loudly for many of us now,
(04/14 12:05:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: A desire to return to D'ni was growing,
(04/14 12:05:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: I myself was beginning to plan an expedition down,
(04/14 12:05:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: But just before i could bring myself to go...something happened.
(04/14 12:05:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: A spark.
(04/14 12:05:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: February 4th, 2010.
(04/14 12:05:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: On that rather memorable day,
(04/14 12:06:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: Victor Laxman posted on the DRC site forums,
(04/14 12:06:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was the first activity that section had seen in years,
(04/14 12:06:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: Even since before Cate took over,
(04/14 12:06:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was a simple thread,
(04/14 12:06:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: The title an eye catching one
(04/14 12:06:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: 'Activity in the Cavern?"
(04/14 12:07:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: Laxman was reporting that a few of his security sensors had been tripped,
(04/14 12:07:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: And was asking if any DRC members had any unplanned trips to go down there.
(04/14 12:07:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: Immediately, explorers everywhere began wondering,
(04/14 12:07:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: Was this really happening?
(04/14 12:07:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: Was something going on?
(04/14 12:07:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: Was... Had Yeesha Returned?
(04/14 12:07:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: Had the Bahro..?
(04/14 12:08:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: Several explorers pushed their plans forwards while others, like me, held them back.
(04/14 12:08:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: we weren't sure what we'd be walking into,
(04/14 12:08:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: But we knew it could be dangerous.
(04/14 12:08:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: almost a day went by before a reply came,
(04/14 12:09:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: Ikuro Kodama and Marie Sutherland had volunteered to go down to investigate.
(04/14 12:09:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: A few explorers by then had made it to D'ni,
(04/14 12:09:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: Reporting that everything seemed fine,
(04/14 12:09:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: Nothing seemed to be unstable.
(04/14 12:09:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was on this weekend of a super bowl game that several explorers-
(04/14 12:09:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: Tai'lahr, Mac, Mystdee, and JanB-
(04/14 12:10:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: Arrived in the city, and met up with Marie herself.
(04/14 12:10:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: Although these explorers were hesitant to reveal themselves, being 'unauthorized',
(04/14 12:11:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: They did such as they were joined by a few other explorers, Veralun and JWPlatt being among those.
(04/14 12:11:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: The explorers asked Marie about what was going on,
(04/14 12:11:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: And Marie had asked in return if they had seen Kodama yet,
(04/14 12:11:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: Marie, honestly, was relieved that it was a group of explorers she met up with first,
(04/14 12:11:49) Pote leans left
(04/14 12:11:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: Rather than a certain "Shroom baron" or the Noloben Inhabitant,
(04/14 12:12:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: Following that odd remark about sharper, Mystdee inquired if Marie had heard anything from him.
(04/14 12:12:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: Marie replied that she hadn't heard much from the other DRC members after they'd split up.
(04/14 12:12:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: After a bit more tense bits of conversation, the question came up.
(04/14 12:12:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: Would the DRC be kicking the explorers out?
(04/14 12:13:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: Marie said that the DRC wouldn't be doing that,
(04/14 12:13:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: But she did warn that any explorers down here would be on their own,
(04/14 12:13:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: No funding, no restoration, no new ages, no full time ResEngs...
(04/14 12:13:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: The explorers were relieved by this,
(04/14 12:13:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: And they tried to assure Marie that they understood the situation.
(04/14 12:14:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: "It will not be a place that some will care to be interested in," Marie had continued, "Those who are Called will come even knowing that.
(04/14 12:14:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: "Who knows what the future holds? I certainly do not. I think there's a reason that 'you never know...' is a motto of our friends at Cyan Worlds."
(04/14 12:14:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: soon after that, Marie left to find Kodama, and the explorers continued their investigations.
(04/14 12:15:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: On the surface, however, news was slim.
(04/14 12:15:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: Explorers were wondering what was going on,
(04/14 12:15:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: Watching with baited breath.
(04/14 12:15:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: But on that Saturday evening, Tweek reported the encounter between the explorers and Marie,
(04/14 12:15:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: Though citing that he had stayed in the shadows and not heard much of what they said
(04/14 12:16:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: A few hours after that, dadguy was able to retell the conversation fairly well, confirming that the Explorers had indeed met with Marie.
(04/14 12:16:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: Later that evening, around 11 PM,
(04/14 12:16:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: Kodama met up with the explorers that were still in the city,
(04/14 12:17:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: he'd been on his way to visit the memorial imager, and had come across the explorers near the Tokotah tent,
(04/14 12:17:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: They chatted for a good while, about what the restoration would be without funding, or what would happen to D'ni,
(04/14 12:17:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: And Kodama noted that it was nice just to relax for a change.
(04/14 12:17:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: The conversation moved onto other things, but that same point was brought up yet again.
(04/14 12:18:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: "enjoy the cavern as it is, rather than worrying about repairing everything in sight. We didn't have time for much of that before. Stopping and smelling the roses as it were," Kodama had said with a grin,
(04/14 12:18:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: "It might be a nice change of pace."
(04/14 12:19:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: Kodama agreed with Marie, however, that he didn't see any problem with the explorers staying behind,
(04/14 12:19:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: So long as no harm came to the cavern itself,
(04/14 12:19:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: it was soon after that that an explorer asked what to do if they ran into a Bahro,
(04/14 12:19:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: And Kodama replied with what was noted as a jovial tone that:
(04/14 12:19:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: "I hear they like Reese's Pieces."
(04/14 12:20:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: Over the night, as explorers settled down to gather their facts,
(04/14 12:20:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: News would filter up to the surface,
(04/14 12:20:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: All of it collaborating itself,
(04/14 12:20:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: to some explorers,
(04/14 12:20:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: Either this was a well planned hoax,
(04/14 12:20:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: Or it was actually happening.
(04/14 12:21:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: The next day, the explorers and DRC wrapped up their investigations,
(04/14 12:21:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: with Marie laughing upon being told it was the super bowl weekend,
(04/14 12:21:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: "I guess we could have ruled out sharper then!"
(04/14 12:21:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: as the DRC left, and the explorers settled down to see about keeping the cavern inhabited,
(04/14 12:22:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: Explores on the surface still wondered what was going on.
(04/14 12:22:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: Finally, Marie posted an official confirmation on the forums,
(04/14 12:22:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: noting that they should speak to their 'fearless leader',
(04/14 12:22:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: Indicating that because the sensors were in a DRC only area,
(04/14 12:22:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: Only one of them could have tripped it.
(04/14 12:23:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: Soon enough, Watson did indeed reply,
(04/14 12:23:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: confessing that he HAD tripped the sensors,
(04/14 12:23:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: Just to get some DRC members down to see the explorers he had been observing.
(04/14 12:23:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: As for the prompt?
(04/14 12:23:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: What else- a dream!
(04/14 12:23:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: The message was loud and clear
(04/14 12:23:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: Explorers were to return to D'ni,
(04/14 12:24:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: And the call seemed to roar like it never had before.
(04/14 12:24:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: The cavern seemed slightly destabilized from the initial rush,
(04/14 12:24:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: But it soon settled down...
(04/14 12:24:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: Over the course of that year- 2010- many things happened,
(04/14 12:24:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: Heritage Night itself had been started,
(04/14 12:24:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: Parties had been held,
(04/14 12:24:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: Friends made,
(04/14 12:25:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: More parties held.
(04/14 12:25:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: Hehe..
(04/14 12:25:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: But,
(04/14 12:25:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: The most important event of all was an explorer planned event,
(04/14 12:25:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: The "BOMB"
(04/14 12:25:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: This event...
(04/14 12:25:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was one of the most critical events that would show us explorers how we would act under stressful events
(04/14 12:25:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: ....without the DRC.
(04/14 12:26:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: July 10th- around 11;00 KI time-
(04/14 12:26:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: the story goes that a Mad Roboticist, and arch-nemesis to an explorer named OHB,
(04/14 12:26:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: Had smuggled a bomb into Ae'gura,
(04/14 12:26:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was a humanoid android,
(04/14 12:26:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: Appropriately named "BOMB"
(04/14 12:26:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: And it...
(04/14 12:26:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: Well...
(04/14 12:26:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was rather inspired.
(04/14 12:26:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: Any time you said "BOMB"
(04/14 12:27:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: The poor thing would lose count of it's countdown from 1000,
(04/14 12:27:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: Or...
(04/14 12:27:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: If you touched it,
(04/14 12:27:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: it would yell:
(04/14 12:27:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: "Stop! Touching! THE GLASS!"
(04/14 12:27:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: BOMB was one of the most funny bots i've ever had the pleasure of meeting.
(04/14 12:27:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: You just couldn't help it,
(04/14 12:27:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: Despite being 'programmed' to explode,
(04/14 12:28:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: he was just too funny!
(04/14 12:28:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: The BOMB, as i was saying,
(04/14 12:28:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: Was a robot built not by OHB's arch nemesis, but instead had been a robot OHB himself had made to add some fun to the cavern,
(04/14 12:28:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: The whole event was a massive story he'd plotted up,
(04/14 12:28:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: OHB himself was quite clever,
(04/14 12:28:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: I'm sure many of you remember OHBot?
(04/14 12:29:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: He was the first Bot that D'ni had ever seen.
(04/14 12:29:07) Alien misses OHBot
(04/14 12:29:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: And he was quite handy too,
(04/14 12:29:19) Pote: yes Cal
(04/14 12:29:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: He could tell you what time it was,
(04/14 12:29:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: Or help translate other languages,
(04/14 12:29:31) Tom(Samoth): yeah, he was nice!
(04/14 12:29:36) Pote knowing some other Bots
(04/14 12:29:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: yup :)
(04/14 12:29:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: He was the first bot ever,
(04/14 12:29:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: And he set a standard for them all.
(04/14 12:30:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: Of course, many explorers didn't feel the "Fun" of this staged event,
(04/14 12:30:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: And so...
(04/14 12:30:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: They took it rather seriously :(
(04/14 12:30:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: Too seriously.
(04/14 12:30:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: The BOMB, despite not having any real explosives,
(04/14 12:30:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: Was definitely an explosive.
(04/14 12:30:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: It set off a fuse that completely knocked away the cloaks some people had set around themselves.
(04/14 12:30:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: Things were said,
(04/14 12:30:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: Some better left unsaid,
(04/14 12:31:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: But it got to the point that those few who tried to wrest control of the situation ended up ruining the fun of it for everyone.
(04/14 12:31:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: OHB had to break character just to bring some sense to the event,
(04/14 12:31:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: Laying down some new ground rules that...sadly...still weren't followed.
(04/14 12:32:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: It's sad, in a way,
(04/14 12:32:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: that something many people enjoyed could be ruined by so few,
(04/14 12:32:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: But...
(04/14 12:32:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: people are people
(04/14 12:32:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: Humans are humans,
(04/14 12:32:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: Bahro are bahro.
(04/14 12:32:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: We all make choices and make mistakes,
(04/14 12:32:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: Eventually, the 'fun' of the event was brought back on however,
(04/14 12:33:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: As explorers began working together to 'disarm' the bomb,
(04/14 12:33:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: To the point that they began ignoring those who were repeatedly still trying to sa-bot-tage things.
(04/14 12:33:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: Pardon the lame pun.
(04/14 12:33:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: Explorers worked together,
(04/14 12:33:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: And they got the bomb disabled,
(04/14 12:34:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: was a precedent.
(04/14 12:34:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: And it had revealed some ugly truths...
(04/14 12:34:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: At the start of 2011, something new would come to our attention
(04/14 12:34:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: The "Birthday hacks" as they've become known as.
(04/14 12:34:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: Which, of course,
(04/14 12:34:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: Led into Fun House, and "The Grey hats"
(04/14 12:34:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: It had started on a birthday party for Rand Miller,
(04/14 12:34:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: Hence the name,
(04/14 12:35:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: Suddenly, the sky began changing colors and things got funky.
(04/14 12:35:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: What this was,
(04/14 12:35:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: Was an old trick learned from the days between the first and second restorations
(04/14 12:35:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: Dump some Teledahn spores into the air vents,
(04/14 12:35:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: Set up a few electromagnets,
(04/14 12:35:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: And suddenly you could mess with what people saw,
(04/14 12:35:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: Literally 'hacking' the world around you,
(04/14 12:35:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was such a powerful trick that even the KI's were fooled by theme.
(04/14 12:36:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: You could take pictures of things that weren't there,
(04/14 12:36:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: Or place markers in impossible places.
(04/14 12:36:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: Many explorers were NOT happy with this blatant violation,
(04/14 12:36:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: Over the whole of 2011,
(04/14 12:36:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: One question was rather prominent,
(04/14 12:36:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: "Do we allow it or not?"
(04/14 12:36:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: These Mental hacks-- could the people who knew how to do them be trusted?
(04/14 12:37:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: Were they Black Hats, or White Hats?
(04/14 12:37:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: It got to the point that the explorers who COULD do these things tired of the bickering
(04/14 12:37:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: And so they coined their own name
(04/14 12:37:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: "The grey hats."
(04/14 12:37:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: Neither white or black,
(04/14 12:37:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: They formed a sort of group, and began talking with the DRC,
(04/14 12:37:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: The rules the DRC set down were simple,
(04/14 12:38:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: "Confine the tricks to private areas.
(04/14 12:38:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: don't do it in public."
(04/14 12:38:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: And with the announcement that the DRC would allow a hood specifically designed to contain these things,
(04/14 12:38:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: "The Fun House"
(04/14 12:38:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: some explorers...
(04/14 12:38:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: Got mad.
(04/14 12:38:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: Again
(04/14 12:38:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: And again.
(04/14 12:38:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: And again!!
(04/14 12:39:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: They were "Legitimizing" these actions,
(04/14 12:39:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: Of course,
(04/14 12:39:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: Nobody could disagree that the Fun House tricks were bringing fun times to D'ni,
(04/14 12:39:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: Even allowing for historical purposes to a degree,
(04/14 12:39:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: Explorers, with the aid of the holographic images brought on by those spores,
(04/14 12:39:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: Were able to witness things they'd never seen.
(04/14 12:40:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: Bahro swarming Kerath's arch,
(04/14 12:40:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: Or that one elusive Bahro that had once upon a time place a Bahro stone in the hoods.
(04/14 12:40:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: Even the very clever, and VERY detailed Bahro Costume that one explorer had made came into use,
(04/14 12:40:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: Allowing explorers to see what a Bahro looked like,
(04/14 12:40:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: Without...well...
(04/14 12:40:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: Actually being in danger.
(04/14 12:40:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: Over time,
(04/14 12:41:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: The Grey Hats and the Fun House became a sort of normal part of D'ni,
(04/14 12:41:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: Rising to the usage of new bots designed to help explorers control the illusions.
(04/14 12:41:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: You, of course, know them better as Magic Bot and Mimi Bot.
(04/14 12:41:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: explorers, using these tools, would come up with new games to do with the bits and pieces of the ages,
(04/14 12:41:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: our friend X here came up with Soccer games,
(04/14 12:42:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: as an example, :)
(04/14 12:42:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: Yes....
(04/14 12:42:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: Things....things seemed to stabilize through 2012.
(04/14 12:42:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: Over time, "Fun House" slowly was re-branded into the present "Magic Worlds"
(04/14 12:42:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: And other bots arose,
(04/14 12:43:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: One, Lyrobot, was designed to act as a replacement to the lost OHBot,
(04/14 12:43:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: That year, 2012...
(04/14 12:43:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: That was one of the calmest that i can remember...
(04/14 12:43:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: But of course,
(04/14 12:43:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: With any calm comes a storm.
(04/14 12:43:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: It's a story that tells itself repeatedly without end.
(04/14 12:43:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: A group of close friends, through whatever trigger,
(04/14 12:44:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: A person's misspoken words, or a suggestion to make a hood
(04/14 12:44:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: Ends up fracturing,
(04/14 12:44:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: I've seen it many times here,
(04/14 12:44:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: Thrice that i care to even mention.
(04/14 12:44:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: But i'm sure that it's happened many many times elsewhere.
(04/14 12:44:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: It always ends up the same.
(04/14 12:44:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: Fighting,
(04/14 12:44:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: With one or more explorers going into an exile,
(04/14 12:45:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: I hate it when that happens,
(04/14 12:45:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: But there isn't much that can be done.
(04/14 12:45:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sometimes, the explorers return,
(04/14 12:45:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sometimes they don't.
(04/14 12:45:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: But that's how we are,
(04/14 12:45:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: We're a family down here,
(04/14 12:45:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: And even families have their squabbles,
(04/14 12:45:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: Just as Engberg had said in the first restoration,
(04/14 12:46:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: But in the end,
(04/14 12:46:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: We all hear the call,
(04/14 12:46:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: In the end,
(04/14 12:46:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: We all are brothers and sisters of D'ni.
(04/14 12:46:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: We are the called.
(04/14 12:46:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: We are the ones who wait in the dark,
(04/14 12:46:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: And...
(04/14 12:46:36) Yark Dozer: So Say We All!
(04/14 12:46:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: That's alright.
(04/14 12:46:41) Tom(Samoth) cheers
(04/14 12:46:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: That's just who we are. :)
(04/14 12:46:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: Life moves on,
(04/14 12:46:49) ventris claps her hands
(04/14 12:46:50) [X]: :)
(04/14 12:46:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: And we move with it,
(04/14 12:46:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: We aren't just statues in the river,
(04/14 12:46:59) [X] nods her head
(04/14 12:47:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: we float along with the current.
(04/14 12:47:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: That's...that's how things progress.
(04/14 12:47:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: Phil had said in the past,
(04/14 12:47:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: "we're all on a journey."
(04/14 12:47:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: And
(04/14 12:47:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: "This is where my journey takes me,"
(04/14 12:47:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: Specifically that, when he was on the Guild Hall.
(04/14 12:47:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: our journeys are all different,
(04/14 12:48:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: All unique,
(04/14 12:48:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: The things we do on it reflect who we are,
(04/14 12:48:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: What we can become,
(04/14 12:48:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: What we can be capable of.
(04/14 12:48:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: In my opinion, that is all that we can do.
(04/14 12:48:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: Carl has said many times
(04/14 12:48:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: "No great Uru happens without a reason."
(04/14 12:48:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: And he's right.
(04/14 12:48:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: We are all here,
(04/14 12:48:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: We are all together,
(04/14 12:48:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: For a reason.
(04/14 12:48:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: What that reason is?
(04/14 12:48:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: I do not know.
(04/14 12:49:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: But it is a journey to find out.
(04/14 12:49:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: Yeesha had said in that imager,
(04/14 12:49:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: "Some will seek the destination, but you should seek the journey.
(04/14 12:49:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: "It's as a fine tapestry, complex beyond recognition, but now torn."
(04/14 12:49:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: We stand here,
(04/14 12:49:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: As a community,
(04/14 12:49:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: But we are torn by language
(04/14 12:50:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: English- Spanish- Dutch- French- Chinese- Japanese- German-
(04/14 12:50:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: So many many more,
(04/14 12:50:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: Russian, and African, and Mexican and Hawaiian,
(04/14 12:50:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: So many different languages,
(04/14 12:50:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: All part of a single place
(04/14 12:50:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: A single cavern!
(04/14 12:50:50) Pote: yes Cal
(04/14 12:50:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: All those different threads can be weaved together into a single point.
(04/14 12:51:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: And that is what i hope to see in the future.
(04/14 12:51:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: a place, much like the old Beginner's Bevin,
(04/14 12:51:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: Where explorers can get together,
(04/14 12:51:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: Of any language,
(04/14 12:51:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: And they...
(04/14 12:51:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: They can find their way.
(04/14 12:51:37) Pote agrees Cal
(04/14 12:51:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: They can make their home.
(04/14 12:51:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: In the end, we all stand here,
(04/14 12:51:50) Pote bows
(04/14 12:51:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: On our journeys so separate
(04/14 12:51:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: And yet,
(04/14 12:51:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: So tied together.
(04/14 12:52:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: There would not have been a second restoration had we not stood united,
(04/14 12:52:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: There would never have been a third if we had not heard the call,
(04/14 12:52:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: We would not have heard it without a reason,
(04/14 12:52:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: The cavern is alive, though slumbering it may seem.
(04/14 12:52:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: And so i close this Heritage Night cycle,
(04/14 12:52:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: Not with words,
(04/14 12:52:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: Not with actions,
(04/14 12:52:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: But a gift,
(04/14 12:53:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: As all cycles are want to have,
(04/14 12:53:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: But seem to be forgotten.
(04/14 12:53:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: Next weekend, I won't be here,
(04/14 12:53:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: I've got surface matters to deal with,
(04/14 12:53:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: And that keeps me away from the new International Hood opening next Sunday.
(04/14 12:53:43) toffy cheers
(04/14 12:53:49) Pote cheers
(04/14 12:53:51) Tom(Samoth): wow!
(04/14 12:53:59) Pote claps his hands
(04/14 12:54:01) [X]: not that you are gone ... of course
(04/14 12:54:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: I'll be leaving a message- a gift to relay to all there,
(04/14 12:54:07) [X]: for the hood
(04/14 12:54:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: And...i hope that it is a good gift,
(04/14 12:54:27) noekje claps her hands
(04/14 12:54:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: One worthy to be given.
(04/14 12:54:30) DimensionTravelerCalum bows
(04/14 12:54:33) SINka cheers
(04/14 12:54:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: Thank you all for coming,

Since I just missed HN, will there be another cycle? If yes, when?

Not for a few months. This round got out of hand due to the server outages pushing several weeks back. There'll always be another cycle, if just a question of when, and who is in command of it.

I've been trying to get someone to help me out with this for over a year now. I've put out several requests for help and have received no replies.

I can't do it alone for ever, even with my dad helping with the ushering. It gets stressful and tiring. Feels less and less like something fun and more and more like a pressure bearing down.

Also, I've been trying to find people willing to run International language versions, or week-day versions too... No luck on that front either.

So yes, it is Open Ended because I have no clue how things will progress.

EDIT: Though I have gotten a request to do Speaking today, so maybe things will be happening sooner than it seems? *shrugs* who knows what the future holds. I sure don't.

Dearest Calu, this is maybe one of the most wonderful farewell messages I've read in a while ... :P

How great it is to feel and hear that inner call that something's afoot, that things are changing and it'd be time to just let go and move on and to just undoubtedly 'know' that and finally to heed that call genuinely and confidently, and you've expressed that all in such a lovely, philosophical and almost prophetic way ... :)

Cal, from the deepest of my heart I wish you the most happiest and magical life in the world, full of new and awesome challenges, inspirations and opportunities to grow and to expand on all levels and to indulge in and be excited about and at all times to be free and without regret to move on when you feel the inner urge or call to once again spread your wings and continue on your grand life's journey cheerfully, graceful and sublime like an eagle ... Take care and just enjoy, Cal ... :D

Thank you, :) But I shan't be gone until I get this Heritage Night thing sorted out. I'll be making a new post shortly to help with that...

I have a spare "Nev'yn" avi...

...Do you want to transfer the the ki-mails over to it, and join it to the hood, so there is someone with "extra copies" on hand to prevent losing the material as a "back-up"?

(Please note, I'm not asking to take over HN...just archive the material for future generations of explorers.)

Let me know!

Sure Nev, that'd be great. That way, if I can't find anyone immediately, and someone in the future is interested to reboot it, they could start up. :)


EDIT: Here's that repeat announcement I mentioned.

This is the FINAL CALL for a new Heritage Night Manager! If I don’t receive ANY SERIOUS OFFERS by 12:00 KI TIME MONDAY, the website goes into archive mode, Nev’yn takes ownership of the hood, and anyone wanting to make a new Heritage Night round must contact both Nev’yn and Me or Carl Palmner to get it running again.

You’ve got the weekend to make up your mind folks.

EDIT: I just realized that there was an error on the Contact Page and I have just rectified that. See HERE for more details.
