Heritage Night is BACK ON! For more consistent updates, check out the main website! HeritageNight.Wordpress.com If you're looking just to read up on the story so far, head on over to All Things URU and read up on Volume One.

For those unaware, Heritage Night was started in Late 2010 by Carl Palmner for the benefit of new explorers who could not be there for the Previous Restorations. Today, HN has thrived and grown it’s roots into the little group we have here today (all of one person with many random volunteers). Heritage Night is held in the Heritage Night Hood, currently on Sundays at 12:00 KI time.

[s]As always, I am looking for Ushers, Speakers, and Managers! If you're interested in any of this, either contact me here on the fourms or via the info listed on the Contact Us Page! Keep in mind that if you don't know how to do a given job, Training will be provided if you need it![/s] SCHEDULE FILLED!

Please see our FAQ page for any questions you might have, and if your question isn't there, leave it as a comment and I'll add it to the page!

This is the tentative schedule for the first round of 2013 Heritage Nights! (Updates will be made as consistently as possible!)

SUNDAYS: 12:00 KI TIME

R3-04.14.13 -- The Third Restoration


If you're confused about anything, you can find me in the City, at the tent in Tokotah Plaza, on any given day from around 12:00 KI to 14:00 KI (Times may vary if something has come up, however).

[s]We've got a few months to prepare for this, so[/s] let's make it a good round, folks. :)

(01/06 12:00:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: You'll find the chat log from today hanging right up there after the show

(01/06 12:00:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: And Myst Online

(01/06 12:01:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: 3rd:
(01/06 12:01:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: It's like a historical show, alien
(01/06 12:01:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: You know,
(01/06 12:01:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: Like the things on the history chan-
(01/06 12:01:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: Wait,
(01/06 12:01:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: Never mind
(01/06 12:01:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: I see where you were going with that :33
(01/06 12:01:27) Marein starts to laugh
(01/06 12:01:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: 4th~
(01/06 12:01:39) Waldo B: They got dancing girls on the history channel?
(01/06 12:01:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: Would the owner of the "Blue Champeing" go down to the docks?
(01/06 12:02:01) Marein: Hopefully better quality than the history channel, though
(01/06 12:02:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: There's a sea-monkey trying to correct the spelling of "Champlain" on it,
(01/06 12:02:20) Criswell: Am i double parked?
(01/06 12:02:31) Marein laughs
(01/06 12:02:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: So with all that put aside,
(01/06 12:02:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: Welcome to Heritage Night,
(01/06 12:02:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: An event of history that;s not located in written word anywhere in the cavern,
(01/06 12:03:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: And yet the tales spoken here have survived for over a decade now,
(01/06 12:03:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: When I first started Heritage Night, I wasn't alone,
(01/06 12:03:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was a cooperative initiative along side Carl Palmner,
(01/06 12:03:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: Who has since left to go do other things on the surface,
(01/06 12:03:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: I haven't seen him in years, but i'm sure he'd be glad to see that this little event's still going on.
(01/06 12:04:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: We started it with a simple purpose
(01/06 12:04:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: "Retell the history of the restorations"
(01/06 12:04:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: We'd been doing it off and on to single explorers over the course of a year,
(01/06 12:04:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: And he thought,
(01/06 12:04:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: "Why not make an event out of it?"
(01/06 12:04:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: In the end,
(01/06 12:04:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: We started HN,
(01/06 12:05:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: Only six weeks,
(01/06 12:05:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: Covering MOUL1,
(01/06 12:05:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: That time period of the Second restoration
(01/06 12:05:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: We didn't have enough facts to cover the Prologue,
(01/06 12:05:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: not enough logs,
(01/06 12:05:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: Not enough data,
(01/06 12:05:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: so a few rounds after he'd left,
(01/06 12:05:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: I finally got it all
(01/06 12:05:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: And so we begin,
(01/06 12:06:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: I'm sure some of you know how Earth began,
(01/06 12:06:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: a book, written by D'ni masters, to escape a dying world,
(01/06 12:06:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: A sun long since past the point of return,
(01/06 12:06:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: A civilization was broken,
(01/06 12:06:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: But it was in that death that many new worlds were born,
(01/06 12:06:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: D'ni-- Earth-- was one of them.
(01/06 12:07:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: D'ni, in D'ni, means something akin to "New"
(01/06 12:07:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was a fresh start for those who came to this Cavern,
(01/06 12:07:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: And for over thousands of years,
(01/06 12:07:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: They lived,
(01/06 12:07:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: Grew,
(01/06 12:07:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: laughed, cried, played, and teased,
(01/06 12:07:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: They were just living,
(01/06 12:07:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: Just like we do...
(01/06 12:07:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: And then they fell.
(01/06 12:08:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: Pride, Yeesha has described it as a cancer that grew until D'ni could no longer support itself,
(01/06 12:08:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: some choose to believe that verbatim,
(01/06 12:08:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: Others look at the facts that we know about the fall,
(01/06 12:08:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: And think otherwise,
(01/06 12:08:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: But one thing was for certain
(01/06 12:08:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: One man brought about the fall of a civilization,
(01/06 12:09:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: Most died,
(01/06 12:09:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: Few survived,
(01/06 12:09:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: But those that did, lived,
(01/06 12:09:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: Elsewhere,
(01/06 12:09:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: It's a constant cycle,
(01/06 12:09:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: Living and dying,
(01/06 12:09:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: D'ni seemed to be built upon it.
(01/06 12:09:44) Switcher claps his hands
(01/06 12:09:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: A woman, Anna, had a grand son,
(01/06 12:09:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: Atrus,
(01/06 12:09:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: Who in turn had a daughter,
(01/06 12:10:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: That Mystical Yeesha that we all know and love (Or hate)
(01/06 12:10:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: for all of her early life,
(01/06 12:10:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: D'ni was a slumbering cavern,
(01/06 12:10:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: At one point, she, like all of us,
(01/06 12:10:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: Heard its call,
(01/06 12:10:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: And down she went,
(01/06 12:10:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: Into the tunnels,
(01/06 12:10:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: Learning and breathing that stale air.
(01/06 12:10:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: Things we still don't understand happened,
(01/06 12:10:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: And she set the stage,
(01/06 12:11:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: At the same time,
(01/06 12:11:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: Another group,
(01/06 12:11:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: The D'ni Restoration Council,
(01/06 12:11:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: At the time the D'ni Restoration Foundation,
(01/06 12:11:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: Came to D'ni
(01/06 12:11:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: Seeking to restore it to it's former glory
(01/06 12:11:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: They too felt the call,
(01/06 12:11:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: A call, a nagging desire,
(01/06 12:11:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: A want to find something hidden,
(01/06 12:12:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: they lived in this cycle too,
(01/06 12:12:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: And one of those DRF men, Elias Zandi,
(01/06 12:12:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: Died.
(01/06 12:12:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: he owns the land above D'ni's entrance
(01/06 12:12:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: The volcano and the cleft,
(01/06 12:12:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: His son,
(01/06 12:12:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: Took over ownership,
(01/06 12:12:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: And so whenever someone new comes to D'ni, through that desert
(01/06 12:13:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: Jeff Zandi is there to greet us.
(01/06 12:13:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: and he's a curious fellow, that Zandi,
(01/06 12:13:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: cryptic in his ways,
(01/06 12:13:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: But still,
(01/06 12:13:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: He's there for us, if we need him.
(01/06 12:13:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: Elias left his money to the DRF, but the land to Jeff,
(01/06 12:13:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: A curious paradox, as it were,
(01/06 12:14:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRF couldn't restore D'ni without Zandi's permission,
(01/06 12:14:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: So as Zandi took his place on the grand stage of it all,
(01/06 12:14:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: Things began to change,
(01/06 12:14:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: He sided with Yeesha's quest,
(01/06 12:14:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: To restore D'ni to those who were willing to be there
(01/06 12:15:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: Those who heard the call
(01/06 12:15:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC was named such in `997
(01/06 12:15:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: 1997*
(01/06 12:15:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: It consisted of five people
(01/06 12:15:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: Dr. Richard Watson,
(01/06 12:15:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: Ikuro Kodama
(01/06 12:15:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: Marie Sutherland,
(01/06 12:15:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: Victor Laxman
(01/06 12:16:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: And Michael Engberg
(01/06 12:16:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: Watson led it all,
(01/06 12:16:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: Laxman was the tech guy,
(01/06 12:16:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: Kodama was a man of few words,
(01/06 12:16:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: Engberg was the structural engineer,
(01/06 12:16:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: And Sutherland was the people person
(01/06 12:17:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: In January of 2002, the DRC opened their doors to "Authorized Explorers"
(01/06 12:17:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: Having felt that they'd uncovered and restored enough for it to be publically opened,
(01/06 12:17:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: It's been likened to a closed beta test,
(01/06 12:17:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: People had to sign NDAs,
(01/06 12:17:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: they couldn't tell too much about what was happening back then,
(01/06 12:18:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: And that's part of why Carl and I had such a hard time figuring out what happened back then.
(01/06 12:18:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: Too many secrets,
(01/06 12:18:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: I'd quote Dr Watson's opening speech, but I've already rambled on just a smudge too much to fit it in...
(01/06 12:18:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: But he was hopeful,
(01/06 12:18:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: Encouraging,
(01/06 12:18:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: He thought that one day soon, D'ni would be open to everyone.
(01/06 12:18:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: And anyone.
(01/06 12:18:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: "To D'ni!"
(01/06 12:19:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: He ended his little speech,
(01/06 12:19:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: sums it up nicely does it not?
(01/06 12:19:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC had restored some D'ni tech,
(01/06 12:19:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: And gave it to the authorized explorers for testing,
(01/06 12:19:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: After all,
(01/06 12:19:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: Some people can come up with *insane* ways of testing things,
(01/06 12:20:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: The main piece of equipment was the KI.
(01/06 12:20:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: Which, originally looked and functioned a LOT different from what we have today.
(01/06 12:20:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was a lot weirder from what we're used to,
(01/06 12:20:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: From what I've heard,
(01/06 12:20:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: English overlay-ed onto D'ni,
(01/06 12:20:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: Two fonts sometimes conflicting,
(01/06 12:20:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: And then there were the pictures!
(01/06 12:21:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: Horrible things, what have survived from then
(01/06 12:21:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: Broken, blurry,
(01/06 12:21:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: But it's history!
(01/06 12:21:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: History in the making,
(01/06 12:21:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: the KI's even had a audio recording function once,
(01/06 12:21:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: Though I don't think the DRC ever got that one working,
(01/06 12:21:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: It may have been retooled into the "voice chat" feature people like to use sometimes,
(01/06 12:22:04) DimensionTravelerCalum shrugs
(01/06 12:22:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: Things were slowly increased in functionality
(01/06 12:22:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: As people learned,
(01/06 12:22:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: Tested,
(01/06 12:22:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: Explored,
(01/06 12:22:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: Douglas Sharper, a man you'll all become familiar with in short time,
(01/06 12:22:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: Was brought in at one point,
(01/06 12:23:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: And after some time,he became the proud owner of the age of Teledahn
(01/06 12:23:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: he would restore it over the years,
(01/06 12:23:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: And while he'd be given occasional orders by the DRC to make a change here or there,
(01/06 12:23:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: Teledahn was *his* place,
(01/06 12:24:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: quite a man, that sharper,
(01/06 12:24:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was in December of 2002 that something...noteworthy happened.
(01/06 12:24:34) Switcher claps his hands
(01/06 12:24:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: A Restoration Engineer by name of Phil "Phend" Henderson was on a job in Eder Kemo
(01/06 12:24:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: Usual survey stuff
(01/06 12:24:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was a Friday, so when he disappeared and nobody saw him for the rest of the weekend,
(01/06 12:25:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: People thought he'd just gone to the surface
(01/06 12:25:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: But come Monday,
(01/06 12:25:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: Everyone realized he was gone.
(01/06 12:25:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: Without a trace,
(01/06 12:25:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: Nobody had seen or heard from him since he went to Kemo for that survey
(01/06 12:25:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: Daily searches were made,
(01/06 12:25:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: But nobody would find him on their own...
(01/06 12:26:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: Just as the hunts were to be called off, Laxman noticed that Phil's KI was online.
(01/06 12:26:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: But before anyone could trace it down,
(01/06 12:26:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: He vanished again.
(01/06 12:26:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: Back to Eder Kemo, everyone went...
(01/06 12:26:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: It appeared a couple of times,
(01/06 12:26:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: Once for a few moments,
(01/06 12:26:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: Then the second time for almost half an hour
(01/06 12:27:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: At first it had seemed that nobody had gotten there the second time,
(01/06 12:27:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: But then an explorer stepped forward
(01/06 12:27:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: They said they'd had a chat with Phil
(01/06 12:27:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: He was okay,
(01/06 12:27:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: but Phil said he wasn't coming back.
(01/06 12:27:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: The liar,
(01/06 12:27:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: From there the restoration went on rather smoothly,
(01/06 12:28:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: Things were quiet,
(01/06 12:28:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: But in 2003 at some point,
(01/06 12:28:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: The gaming company UbiSoft put in their funding,
(01/06 12:28:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: They were funding it with the purposes of making the restoration open.
(01/06 12:28:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: and so, to many, this is the start of the "Prologue" era,
(01/06 12:28:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: Nobody had to sign anything,
(01/06 12:29:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: And so information of this time grew a bit more than it had been
(01/06 12:29:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: Explorers were allowed in, on a certain basis,
(01/06 12:29:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: But all of them were sent by Zandi,
(01/06 12:29:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: The gates were opened,
(01/06 12:30:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: Even though some places, like Ae'gura, were on the public display at the time,
(01/06 12:30:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: They weren't 'officially' opened,
(01/06 12:30:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: On that particular day, the Kahlo pub was still "Off Limits"
(01/06 12:30:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: But some sneaked in,
(01/06 12:31:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC soon found out, but they were only concerned for the Explorer's safety
(01/06 12:31:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: The building hadn't yet been confirmed as 'stable'
(01/06 12:31:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: But soon enough, the building was opened.
(01/06 12:31:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: well,
(01/06 12:31:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: Somewhat.
(01/06 12:31:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was still blocked off,
(01/06 12:31:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: But people could sneak past it if they were clever enough,
(01/06 12:32:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sharper, on the other hand, didn't like how the DRC were going about things
(01/06 12:32:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: "That's them. Concerned and official."
(01/06 12:32:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: "anyone would think they owned this place!" an explorer remarked
(01/06 12:32:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: "Well," Sharper replied, "They think they do."
(01/06 12:32:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: He began openly suggesting ignoring the DRC's rules,
(01/06 12:33:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: But despite his open protest, the DRC gave him a pub to restore,
(01/06 12:33:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: Seeing as they were happy with Teledahn,
(01/06 12:33:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: it was probably done to shut him up.
(01/06 12:33:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: Not that it worked,
(01/06 12:33:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: The pub was in J'Taeri district,
(01/06 12:33:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: What we now call "Watcher's Pub"
(01/06 12:34:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: its different though
(01/06 12:34:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: the DRC changed it all from how Sharper had it,
(01/06 12:34:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: Wall colors changed,
(01/06 12:34:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: Different banners,
(01/06 12:34:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: Vases were even removed!
(01/06 12:34:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: But even so,
(01/06 12:34:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: That pub...the Great Tree Pub as people came to call it then...
(01/06 12:34:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: It's a place of history
(01/06 12:35:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: Around the time that sharper was making his protests,
(01/06 12:35:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: An explorer named Zardoz was in Eder Kemo when, out of nowhere, Phil's KI had activated again
(01/06 12:35:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: Somehow the guy had trapped himself behind the bahro door!
(01/06 12:36:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: Zardoz and Phil had a conversation, one that I don't have any record of its contents on hand at the moment,
(01/06 12:36:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: But it ended with Phil exiting through the door again.
(01/06 12:36:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: Crazy, that's my opinion of Phil if you ask me.
(01/06 12:36:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: Maybe he'd eaten too many mushrooms from Teledahn?
(01/06 12:36:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: Who can say.
(01/06 12:37:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: A short time later,
(01/06 12:37:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: Another explorer, MrM3Fan, found Phil again,
(01/06 12:37:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: And combined with Laxman's efforts,
(01/06 12:37:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: They got Phil to the city.
(01/06 12:37:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: Phil was...rather jumpy,
(01/06 12:38:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: he ended up running off, disappearing by turning off his KI somehow,
(01/06 12:38:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: And now...he was loose in the city~
(01/06 12:38:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: All five DRC members were soon searching high and low for him,
(01/06 12:38:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: Phil would make random appearances,
(01/06 12:39:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: Almost daily, it seemed,
(01/06 12:39:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: But he'd always slip away,
(01/06 12:39:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sharper continued to protest against the DRC, too.
(01/06 12:39:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: As you might be able to tell....things were not going well for the DRC
(01/06 12:39:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: To add onto it all,
(01/06 12:39:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: Yeesha was beginning to actively interfere,
(01/06 12:40:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: The new explorers coming down through Zandi had these strange books
(01/06 12:40:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: "Relto"
(01/06 12:40:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: As it was called,
(01/06 12:40:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: And there were pages,
(01/06 12:40:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: And stones,
(01/06 12:40:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: All of which the DRC could do nothing about!
(01/06 12:40:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: Removed one,
(01/06 12:40:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: And it comes back,
(01/06 12:40:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: hide it away,
(01/06 12:40:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: It'll link back,
(01/06 12:41:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: the stones and the pages...
(01/06 12:41:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC didn't like that explorers could get to 'unauthorized' places
(01/06 12:41:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: Places like Kadish Tolesa,
(01/06 12:41:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: Places like Gahreesen's exterior,
(01/06 12:41:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: Eder Gira,
(01/06 12:41:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: was another place,
(01/06 12:41:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: Filled with lava!
(01/06 12:42:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: How were explorers getting around?
(01/06 12:42:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: And then add into the mix these strange cloths that had hands on them~
(01/06 12:42:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: The mysterious Bahro doors too...
(01/06 12:42:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: Someone once removed a cloth,
(01/06 12:42:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: It made a horrid sound as it was torn from the wall, according to the note attached to the cloth,
(01/06 12:42:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: And some time later,
(01/06 12:43:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: The cloth simply *reformed* on the wall
(01/06 12:43:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: Magic! people cried
(01/06 12:43:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC didn't like it,
(01/06 12:43:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: But despite their efforts,
(01/06 12:43:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: They couldn't do much at all.
(01/06 12:43:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: Explorers were beginning to grow tired of the DRC's constant 'safety' rabble
(01/06 12:43:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: Mostly stirred up by sharper,
(01/06 12:43:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: Or confused by Phil
(01/06 12:43:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: In the end,
(01/06 12:44:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: Nobody was ever right,
(01/06 12:44:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: There aren't *sides*
(01/06 12:44:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: Yeesha had been planting that seed of doubt,
(01/06 12:44:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: Of having to choose sides,
(01/06 12:44:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: When those of us who finished her journey were given a shirt
(01/06 12:44:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: And told to wear it when sides were taken,
(01/06 12:44:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: But there aren't SIDES.
(01/06 12:44:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: no,
(01/06 12:44:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: Looking back at it all, i can see that plainly,
(01/06 12:44:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: There weren't sides,
(01/06 12:45:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: just people,
(01/06 12:45:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: Wanting to work towards the same goal with different methods
(01/06 12:45:11) Marein tries to cover his shirt
(01/06 12:45:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: people get confused,
(01/06 12:45:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: People get mad,
(01/06 12:45:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: It's in our nature,
(01/06 12:45:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: It's in the D'ni nature,
(01/06 12:45:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: It's even in the Bahro's nature,
(01/06 12:45:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: With Freedom comes choice,
(01/06 12:45:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: And with choice comes the illusion of 'sides'
(01/06 12:45:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: Artificial barriers like those orange saw horses,
(01/06 12:46:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: So what is there to say about this era?
(01/06 12:46:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: Not much, in honestly,
(01/06 12:46:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: The lack of serious information that was written then is a major pain to all historians,
(01/06 12:46:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: Much of the "news" reports I came across in researching this Prologue were...
(01/06 12:47:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: "Hehe, go checkit out!"
(01/06 12:47:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: Or "Hey, I aintsaying. Spoilers!!"
(01/06 12:47:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: It's...
(01/06 12:47:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: Well...
(01/06 12:47:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: It's a pain to look for facts,
(01/06 12:47:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: But not being able to find them
(01/06 12:47:38) DimensionTravelerCalum shrugs
(01/06 12:47:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: But there's not much to be done about it.
(01/06 12:47:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: People didn't understand then,
(01/06 12:48:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: That the events going on then were the roots of all of our troubles.
(01/06 12:48:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: The upcoming collapse,
(01/06 12:48:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: The dangers of forcing sides
(01/06 12:48:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: Nobody understood just yet what was going on,
(01/06 12:48:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: And that's all there is to say on that matter :/
(01/06 12:48:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: Thus ends Prologue Night A.

(01/13 11:58:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: For those of you here who know Kaaja,

(01/13 11:58:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: so be sure to ask her about that if you see her,
(01/13 11:58:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: Despite the crashes, it's very quite fun :)
(01/13 11:59:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: so then~
(01/13 11:59:08) Zyxia: hI everyone :))
(01/13 11:59:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: With it about time to start...
(01/13 11:59:09) Zyxia waves hello
(01/13 11:59:10) Boywhith: shorah Zyxia!
(01/13 11:59:19) DimensionTravelerCalum declares HN starting now
(01/13 11:59:24) From DimensionTravelerCalum in Heritage Night's Hood: HN STARTS NAO!
(01/13 11:59:26) Zyxia: Heya Boywhith :))
(01/13 11:59:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: First off the usual
(01/13 11:59:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: Snacks are all around the tables,
(01/13 11:59:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: drinks chilled in the fountain
(01/13 12:00:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: secondly, our website,
(01/13 12:00:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: if you missed last week'
(01/13 12:00:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: the log's up on HeritageNight.wordpress.com
(01/13 12:00:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: as well as on the Myst Online and MYST community forums
(01/13 12:00:38) Zyxia leans right
(01/13 12:00:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: the log for today will be up there as well, after the show
(01/13 12:00:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: :)
(01/13 12:00:41) Boywhith leans left
(01/13 12:00:47) Zyxia: :)))
(01/13 12:00:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: thirdly,
(01/13 12:01:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: would the owner of a Bouncing Bahro Bumper Buggy Beetle car (0_0) please report to the parking lot?
(01/13 12:01:39) Jatee: hehehehe
(01/13 12:01:43) iamSylster: :))
(01/13 12:01:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: we have some rambunctious little Bahro trying to take your custom license plate,
(01/13 12:02:02) karoh6: Oops. left it running again
(01/13 12:02:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: and they refuse to speak to anyone but the owner about buying it off of the car
(01/13 12:02:15) Zyxia: oh dear - my little one again out of control
(01/13 12:02:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: thank you...
(01/13 12:02:32) Grandbad: lol.
(01/13 12:02:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: alright, now then
(01/13 12:02:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: to pick up from last week,,,
(01/13 12:02:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: "Sides"
(01/13 12:03:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: the Prologue itself is long enough to be broken up into two halves,
(01/13 12:03:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: much like the events told in them
(01/13 12:03:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: there are two sides to every tale,
(01/13 12:03:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: or at least, that's what we were told to believe then.
(01/13 12:03:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: DRC or Yeesha
(01/13 12:03:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: that was our choice
(01/13 12:03:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: most people, including one Douglas Sharper, were not too happy about the DRC's slow and steady practice,
(01/13 12:04:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: there was the mysterious man, Phil Henderson,
(01/13 12:04:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: who had vanished repeatedly,
(01/13 12:04:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: and returned multiple times,
(01/13 12:04:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: he promoted Yeesha's path,
(01/13 12:04:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: and that of something else,
(01/13 12:04:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: discussion in the cavern during this time was ...
(01/13 12:04:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: well...
(01/13 12:04:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: confusing to say the least.
(01/13 12:05:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: some people wanted the DRC to follow Yeesha's path,
(01/13 12:05:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: others wanted the DRC to keep on with how they worked
(01/13 12:05:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: and...well.... it didn't end up like how anyone wanted
(01/13 12:06:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: the DRC were trying to keep the "Relto Pages" and "Bahro Artifacts" from being common use
(01/13 12:06:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: citing that they 'weren't tested for safety'
(01/13 12:06:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: things like that.
(01/13 12:06:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sharper hated that idea.
(01/13 12:06:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: he stole away one stone,
(01/13 12:06:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: and hid it~
(01/13 12:06:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: keeping it away from the DRC intentionally,
(01/13 12:07:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: who knows what his reasoning's were,
(01/13 12:07:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: his own journals on the matter are seemingly deliberately obscured.
(01/13 12:07:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: to jump right into the story... however,
(01/13 12:07:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: this week's story begins in a hood.
(01/13 12:07:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: much like this,
(01/13 12:07:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: yet different,
(01/13 12:07:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: older,
(01/13 12:07:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: Phil was there,
(01/13 12:07:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: and he was talking to explorers
(01/13 12:08:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: explaining where he'd been and what he'd been doing all rather cryptically
(01/13 12:08:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: people asked him about Yeesha,
(01/13 12:08:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: if he'd seen her
(01/13 12:08:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: and in return,
(01/13 12:08:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: he asked them
(01/13 12:08:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: "Have you seen her?"
(01/13 12:09:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: soon enough, Sharper arrived in that hood,
(01/13 12:09:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: and he and Phil began talking
(01/13 12:09:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: I don't know if they were friends before Phil had gone missing,
(01/13 12:09:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: or if this was their first documented meeting,
(01/13 12:09:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: but, Sharper was there, Phil was there,
(01/13 12:09:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: and a series of events began to spiral out from this point,
(01/13 12:10:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: a cascade of random but critical points,
(01/13 12:10:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: it would spell doom for the first restoration,
(01/13 12:10:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: Phil began trying to get Sharper to take Yeesha's journey
(01/13 12:10:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: and at first, Sharper was skeptical,
(01/13 12:10:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: and Phil's cryptic riddles were...
(01/13 12:10:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: well...
(01/13 12:11:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: just as annoying to me as they were to Sharper
(01/13 12:11:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: "Can you cut the riddles?" he'd asked at one point.
(01/13 12:11:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: in return, all he got was more riddles.
(01/13 12:11:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: Phil went down to the light garden,
(01/13 12:11:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: that one funny little island,
(01/13 12:11:49) dr.rodney mckay pass's around the popcorn
(01/13 12:11:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: he asked the people there in that hood to wait by it.
(01/13 12:12:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: and so they did
(01/13 12:12:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: "See the rock?" Phil asked,
(01/13 12:12:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: "Its a rock" explorer Brian Fioca replied
(01/13 12:12:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: "It's more." Phil said.
(01/13 12:12:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: an explorer named Snatcher commented that the island looked like Relto,
(01/13 12:12:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: Or alternatively Myst
(01/13 12:12:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: Since they shared similar shapes,
(01/13 12:13:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sharper scoffed
(01/13 12:13:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: "Please. It's a rock."
(01/13 12:13:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: Phil said after that that he'd been where we'd been,
(01/13 12:13:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: 'If you've seen her"
(01/13 12:13:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: he said that he'd completed the circle, and asked everyone if they had as well
(01/13 12:13:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: the explorers answered yes,
(01/13 12:13:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: Phil turned to Sharper,
(01/13 12:14:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: "Have you, Douglass?"
(01/13 12:14:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: "Have I what?" Sharper asked, "Completed the magic journey?"
(01/13 12:14:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: "Yes."
(01/13 12:14:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: "No."
(01/13 12:14:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: "You need to. To Complete the circle. Do you understand?"
(01/13 12:14:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sharper relented, agreeing to do it if Phil would show him how.
(01/13 12:15:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: So as they waited
(01/13 12:15:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sharper remarked,
(01/13 12:15:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: "Is the magic journey more fun than what we're doing right now?"
(01/13 12:15:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: Phil said it was,
(01/13 12:15:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: said that it let you learn how to feel things,
(01/13 12:15:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: Things like that island.
(01/13 12:15:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: "Watch the stone, and wait."
(01/13 12:15:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: A few moments later,
(01/13 12:16:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: The islands Relto page, which the DRC had earlier removed from that hood,
(01/13 12:16:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: Miraculously appeared,
(01/13 12:16:18) Zyxia: YAY !!
(01/13 12:16:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: After the shock wore off,
(01/13 12:16:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: The group all went around to different hoods,
(01/13 12:16:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: And then to different Reltos...
(01/13 12:16:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: A few days later, Phil continued on, claiming that we were all on a journey, and that where we ended up was a part of that journey.
(01/13 12:17:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: Above all though, it seemed that this remark began dividing explorers.
(01/13 12:17:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: As their journeys began taking them elsewhere,
(01/13 12:17:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: Other paths,
(01/13 12:17:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: Different branches,
(01/13 12:17:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: All part of the great tree of possibilities.
(01/13 12:17:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sharper was growing increasingly anti DRC at this point
(01/13 12:18:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: And the DRC were getting concerned by all of this.
(01/13 12:18:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: some explorers were already tired of this 'side taking'
(01/13 12:18:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: And Michael Engberg, of the DRC, being a family man himself,
(01/13 12:18:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: With a daughter that he loved at home,
(01/13 12:18:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: Agreed with them.
(01/13 12:19:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: "We're all family down here," he said, "and even in family you have people who disagree."
(01/13 12:19:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: But even so,
(01/13 12:19:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: At this point it wasn't quite obvious,
(01/13 12:19:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: That we were supposed to work together
(01/13 12:19:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: If people could learn to agree just to disagree, life would go a lot easier,
(01/13 12:20:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: People always aren't going to agree with authority,
(01/13 12:20:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: But there has to come a point when you understood where they were coming from,
(01/13 12:20:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: Things wouldn't go that way, sadly.
(01/13 12:20:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: Phil and Sharper went on their journey
(01/13 12:21:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: And things quieted for a time,
(01/13 12:21:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: The calm before the storm, as it were.
(01/13 12:21:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: Marie Sutherland touched briefly on the funding of the restoration
(01/13 12:21:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: Saying that it was surprisingly expensive,
(01/13 12:21:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: That was why they used cones then,
(01/13 12:21:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: "We don't believe in OSHA down here." Marie said with a smile.
(01/13 12:21:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: even though THEY were in charge,
(01/13 12:22:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC were just like us in a sense,
(01/13 12:22:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: Not wanting to agree to the authority of a government.
(01/13 12:22:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: Heh...
(01/13 12:22:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: soon enough, Sharper Returned,
(01/13 12:22:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: And he...was different.
(01/13 12:22:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: He still wore his signature hat,
(01/13 12:22:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: All folded on one side,
(01/13 12:22:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: But...
(01/13 12:22:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: He wore the Yeesha T shirt
(01/13 12:23:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: He had a Relto book too.
(01/13 12:23:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: "There's so much more to linking than I ever thought." Sharper remarked
(01/13 12:23:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: "You mean the linking stones?" Explorer Dusante asked of him.
(01/13 12:23:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: "All of it." Sharper replied,
(01/13 12:23:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: "The book. the Age. the Stones. The Cloths."
(01/13 12:24:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: All summarized with
(01/13 12:24:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: "The DRC's linking books are child's play."
(01/13 12:24:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: And so he encouraged people to wear Yeesha's shirt.
(01/13 12:24:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: Things began to escalate,
(01/13 12:24:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: Days later, Phil climbed up into the Guild Hall, right over the King's tomb.
(01/13 12:24:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: People advised of him, begged even, to get him to come down.
(01/13 12:25:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: He didn't listen.
(01/13 12:25:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: Now some of you may be dreading,
(01/13 12:25:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: "Is this the moment?"
(01/13 12:25:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: No,
(01/13 12:25:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: Dr. Watson arrived soon after, and managed to convince Phil to come down.
(01/13 12:25:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: Watson got Phil to come down to the bridge,
(01/13 12:25:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: sharper came in soon after,
(01/13 12:25:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: Laxman too,
(01/13 12:25:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: And....
(01/13 12:26:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: It resulted in Sharper Reltoing off the bridge, and Phil being kidnapped through his own Relto Book.
(01/13 12:26:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: Explorers were mad,
(01/13 12:26:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sharper was even madder,
(01/13 12:26:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: He led a charge to tear down the barriers in front of the still partially blocked Kahlo Pub,
(01/13 12:26:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: And shortly after that,
(01/13 12:27:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: He invited explorers to his own personal Hood,
(01/13 12:27:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: Where he opened the Egg Rooms, which until that point had all been "sealed for unstable ground"
(01/13 12:27:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: He proved it was stable,
(01/13 12:27:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: And that there was something more
(01/13 12:27:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: The room BLOCKED KI signals,
(01/13 12:27:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC had been trying to figure out how it worked~
(01/13 12:27:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: No signals could leave the room at all,
(01/13 12:28:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was the perfect place to talk without being spied upon.
(01/13 12:28:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: The timing of this was all too perfect,
(01/13 12:28:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: an explorer managed to get the DRC to let them talk to Phil,
(01/13 12:28:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: That explorer, Tink, used the very egg rooms that Phil was being held in to her advantage
(01/13 12:29:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: Getting an untainted conversation from Phil.
(01/13 12:29:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: He was okay, and the log proved that the DRC weren't mis-treating him,
(01/13 12:29:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: Just that they had been talking,
(01/13 12:29:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: Something that had nearly been impossible because of Phil's frantic and random actions
(01/13 12:29:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was enough to clear the DRC in the Explorer's minds,
(01/13 12:29:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: But not to Sharper,
(01/13 12:29:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: After the "incident"
(01/13 12:30:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: He came to the Uru Obsession Hood,
(01/13 12:30:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: And reported that he'd lost his neighborhood,
(01/13 12:30:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: And his KI had been "Damaged" so that it couldn't make a new one\
(01/13 12:30:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC had also taken away the restoration status of the Great tree pub,
(01/13 12:30:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: He had nothing,
(01/13 12:30:53) Zyxia: awwwww
(01/13 12:31:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sharper was going to build up support to AT LEAST get the TGT pub back,
(01/13 12:31:05) karoh6: Can they do that? {LogFormattingAnswer: They could back then, atleast.}
(01/13 12:31:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: He didn't get the chance.
(01/13 12:31:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: December 26th, 2003.
(01/13 12:31:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: Just after Phil had been released,
(01/13 12:31:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: He was BACK on the Guild Hall
(01/13 12:31:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: In an even worse area,
(01/13 12:31:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC were all concerned,
(01/13 12:31:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was too unstable,
(01/13 12:32:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: Not even the Nexus Terminal up there would allow link connections to come through.
(01/13 12:32:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: Explorers down in the plaza wondered if the DRC were just making excuses
(01/13 12:32:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: They insisted that they should try to help.
(01/13 12:32:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: But the DRC couldnt do anything but try to get phil to come down
(01/13 12:32:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: Nobody could do anything
(01/13 12:32:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was too unstable to get anyone up there,
(01/13 12:33:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: Phil didn't listen to their concerns
(01/13 12:33:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: This is where his journey lead him.
(01/13 12:33:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: He was up there,
(01/13 12:33:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: for better of for worse...
(01/13 12:33:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: And...
(01/13 12:33:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: Phil knew it was unstable
(01/13 12:34:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: He had been a former Restoration Engineer for the DRC
(01/13 12:34:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: He knew how bad it was...
(01/13 12:34:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: "There's no safe way to get up there." The DRC repeated
(01/13 12:34:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: They couldn't help,
(01/13 12:34:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: They kept the explorers from making an even worse mess of things...
(01/13 12:34:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: And then...
(01/13 12:34:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: There was a rumble,
(01/13 12:34:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: Smoke,
(01/13 12:35:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: And then Phil's KI went offline with the ominous message
(01/13 12:35:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: "????????........"
(01/13 12:35:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC threw safety aside, and rushed into action to find him.
(01/13 12:35:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: Nothing.
(01/13 12:35:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: Only a smashed KI had been found.
(01/13 12:35:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: Phil was presumed dead,
(01/13 12:35:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: And the restoration went silent.
(01/13 12:36:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: Finally, on the Fourth of February, 2004,
(01/13 12:36:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: Kodama made a brief announcement,
(01/13 12:36:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: Dr. Watson was missing,
(01/13 12:36:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: And the Restoration funding had dried up with him.
(01/13 12:36:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: The game corp,UbiSoft, had pulled out abruptly then,
(01/13 12:36:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: Even canceling other projects of theirs at the same time,
(01/13 12:37:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: The First Restoration was Finished.
(01/13 12:37:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: Months would pass,
(01/13 12:37:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: The explorers that remained would go on smaller journeys,
(01/13 12:37:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: Doing whatever they could do,
(01/13 12:37:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: Some would restart the Great Zero for short periods of TIme,
(01/13 12:37:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: Gaining access to the place where Watson had left a final message
(01/13 12:38:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: "Take a leap of faith."
(01/13 12:38:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: Others still found Sharper's half restored Pub,
(01/13 12:38:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: And discovered two ages that were to go with it,
(01/13 12:38:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: They solved that journey,
(01/13 12:38:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: And discovered that Yeesha, too, had moved on to other things,
(01/13 12:38:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: She was "The Grower"
(01/13 12:38:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: And she would bring Light to D'ni,
(01/13 12:39:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: One journey in particular, taken by one particular person,
(01/13 12:39:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: Was told to Cyan,
(01/13 12:39:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: And in the year 2005, they made the video game Myst V: End of Ages.
(01/13 12:39:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: and so everyone waited under the surface,
(01/13 12:39:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: waiting,
(01/13 12:39:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: hoping,
(01/13 12:39:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: praying,
(01/13 12:39:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: many explorers gave up on official restorations ever happening again
(01/13 12:40:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: and so took maters into their own hands
(01/13 12:40:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: they experimented with the KIs,
(01/13 12:40:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: and began digging into things they had no right to be digging into during the first restoration,
(01/13 12:40:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: those who felt called to D'ni still came,
(01/13 12:40:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: solving the same paths,
(01/13 12:40:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: learning the same lessons
(01/13 12:40:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: and so as life moved on...
(01/13 12:40:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: a spark...
(01/13 12:41:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: so subtle and insignificant....
(01/13 12:41:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: but it was there,
(01/13 12:41:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: the DRC took Yeesha's journey,
(01/13 12:41:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: they began to understand the things that Phil and Sharper had seen,
(01/13 12:41:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: and they decided.
(01/13 12:41:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: "Forget funding!"
(01/13 12:41:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: "Let's restore D'ni with our own hands~"
(01/13 12:41:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: and so they returned.
(01/13 12:42:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: and so the explorers began returning,
(01/13 12:42:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: and with that spark,
(01/13 12:42:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: the gears of the Second Restoration began to turn.
(01/13 12:42:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: i hope you'll all join us next week,

Myst Community -- Heritage Night

[spoiler](01/20 11:52:46) Chat.log started…
(01/20 11:52:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: shorah all, :)
(01/20 11:52:56) Atiyamaria: come on stiler
(01/20 11:53:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: I know thee have been some troubling times over the last week or so,
(01/20 11:53:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: But i do hope that everyone is doing well,
(01/20 11:53:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: :)
(01/20 11:53:46) Purple Phase is untroubled
(01/20 11:54:01) DaVinci: as soon has I get this tooth fixed I will be wonderful
(01/20 11:54:04) DaVinci roars with laughter
(01/20 11:54:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: glad to hear it vinci, :)
(01/20 11:54:33) From DimensionTravelerCalum in Heritage Night’s Hood: HN in FIVE!
(01/20 11:54:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: HN begins in five minutes all, :)
(01/20 11:54:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: So just a little more patience, and then we’ll start. hehehe
(01/20 11:55:04) DaVinci taps foot
(01/20 11:55:06) Purple Phase has a pair of pliers in her back pak and offers the use of them to DaVinci
(01/20 11:55:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: before we begin however, id like to make note of an observation a friend of mine made recently.
(01/20 11:55:30) DaVinci: I will take that offer Purple :)
(01/20 11:55:32) Purple Phase: with operator if required
(01/20 11:55:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: Even though we all come down here for similar reasons,
(01/20 11:55:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: We all have different life views of this place.
(01/20 11:55:55) Purple Phase: we sure do
(01/20 11:56:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: The actions one person takes may be different from what actions another might take under the same circumstances,
(01/20 11:56:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: Nobody’s perfect, after all,
(01/20 11:56:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: with that said, id like to remind everyone that events in history are often obscured by emotions and thoughts,
(01/20 11:57:05) Criswell: I hope we can heal and get past this – it almost seems like this is a war zone these days …
(01/20 11:57:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: Decisions once thought right are cast into doubt by a future generation….
(01/20 11:57:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: :)
(01/20 11:57:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: Yeah, cris, exactly that.
(01/20 11:57:31) Purple Phase: history is a good teacher
(01/20 11:57:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: so no matter what troubls might be in d’ni right now,
(01/20 11:57:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: We need to understand the history of it all,
(01/20 11:57:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: And at the same time,
(01/20 11:57:52) Criswell: and we can’t blame veovis this time :(
(01/20 11:57:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: We need to prevent it from repeating, as history is want to do.
(01/20 11:58:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: so with that said,
(01/20 11:58:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: We’ll begin
(01/20 11:58:16) From DimensionTravelerCalum in Heritage Night’s Hood: HN starting NAO!
(01/20 11:58:31) DimensionTravelerCalum digs out a book from his jacket and places it before him
(01/20 11:58:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: Briefly to recap,
(01/20 11:59:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: And to quote HN’s founder, Carl Palmner,
(01/20 11:59:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: When we came to the cavern in 2006,
(01/20 11:59:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: We were not the first.
(01/20 11:59:27) pcdog: Hi dtc
(01/20 11:59:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: There’d been another restoration
(01/20 11:59:29) pcdog waves hello
(01/20 11:59:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: And that had ended badly,
(01/20 11:59:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: With the apparent death of one Phil Henderson,
(01/20 11:59:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: If you’ve missed those last two weeks,
(01/20 11:59:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: You can re-read them on the HN website,
(01/20 12:00:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: (HeritageNight.wordpress.com)
(01/20 12:00:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: Or on the Myst Community or Myst Online forums.
(01/20 12:00:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: (Just look for Heritage Night 2013 for those threads)
(01/20 12:01:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: So, as we return to the storu,
(01/20 12:01:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: Story*
(01/20 12:01:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC, formerly made upp of five members,
(01/20 12:01:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: was now short one,
(01/20 12:01:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: dr. Richard Watson,
(01/20 12:01:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: He had gone missing shortly after Phil had been declared dead,
(01/20 12:01:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: And nobody could blame him,
(01/20 12:01:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: Even though the funding for the first restoration was no more,
(01/20 12:02:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: The remaining DRC,
(01/20 12:02:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: Kodama, Sutherland, Laxman, and Engberg,
(01/20 12:02:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: Decided that they would work through a second restoration
(01/20 12:02:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: All on their own
(01/20 12:02:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: Anyone who wanted to return to do the same jobs they held before were welcome to do such,
(01/20 12:02:57) GHMagic: thx MsD Meena
(01/20 12:03:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: But there wasn’t any money involved yet
(01/20 12:03:11) GHMagic waves hello
(01/20 12:03:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was during this time that many things were tried,
(01/20 12:03:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC tried to get the explorers more involved with the restoration
(01/20 12:03:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: So five explorers were voted up to be “Liasions”
(01/20 12:03:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: this fiasco backfired.
(01/20 12:03:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: Majorly.
(01/20 12:04:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: Those five explorers, if they’re still around, would probably not want to talk about it.
(01/20 12:04:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: even so, the DRC tried to keep things open ended,
(01/20 12:04:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: They tried to advert the mistakes of the past.
(01/20 12:05:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: They even advertized some pictures of a new age that they were renovating, restoring,
(01/20 12:05:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: Eder Delin, it was called,
(01/20 12:05:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: And like the other Eders we were familiar with,
(01/20 12:05:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was a garden age,
(01/20 12:05:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: Many people noticed that the picture held similarity to Eder Kemo,
(01/20 12:05:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: And that really came to the fore-front when some clever explorers ‘exported’ the picture off of the imagers it’d been posted to.
(01/20 12:06:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC were needlessly to say surprised,
(01/20 12:06:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: But explorers had been practicing,
(01/20 12:06:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: Tinkering
(01/20 12:06:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: Some might have even been willing to work with the DRC, if they were offered,
(01/20 12:06:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: And yet life marches on
(01/20 12:06:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: In a room exactly like this,
(01/20 12:07:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: On a day not too dissimilar to this,
(01/20 12:07:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: December 19th, 2006,
(01/20 12:07:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC were holding one of their new “Town Hall Meetings”
(01/20 12:07:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: It had barely just begun when….
(01/20 12:07:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: Laxman got a KI mail,
(01/20 12:07:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: As he opened it up…
(01/20 12:07:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: A Bahro screamed.
(01/20 12:07:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: And it was not just in that hood,
(01/20 12:07:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was in the city,
(01/20 12:07:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was in the ages,
(01/20 12:07:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was on the *surface*
(01/20 12:08:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: A Bahro scream heard across the multiverse.
[bahro scream]
(01/20 12:08:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: Much like that,
(01/20 12:08:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: Except a lot louder, lol
(01/20 12:08:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was very much a surprise,
(01/20 12:08:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: Especially when explorers were LINKED away
(01/20 12:08:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: Anyone who heard that scream was linked to a Relto,
(01/20 12:09:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: If they were already on a Relto,
(01/20 12:09:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: They spotted the differences immediately
(01/20 12:09:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: All of their hard earned pages were gone,
(01/20 12:09:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: All of their ages, reset
(01/20 12:09:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: and worst of all?
(01/20 12:09:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: the KI’s were broken to various degrees
(01/20 12:10:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: Ahhem.
(01/20 12:10:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: As I was saying,
(01/20 12:10:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: A lot happened with that scream
(01/20 12:10:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: Now called “The Great Scream”
(01/20 12:10:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: When people worked their way back to D’ni
(01/20 12:10:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: They found stuff to be broken
(01/20 12:10:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: Imagers down,
(01/20 12:11:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: rocks fallen onto pathways in the city,
(01/20 12:11:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: Whole bridges knocked down,
(01/20 12:11:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: Everything was a mess!
(01/20 12:11:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: To this day,
(01/20 12:11:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: nobody knows WHAT caused the scream
(01/20 12:11:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: Or what else it may have done to the universe at large,
(01/20 12:12:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: But what we soon discovered was that a lot of things had changed,
(01/20 12:12:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: in fact,
(01/20 12:12:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was around this time of the scream that a new source of funding had approached the DRC
(01/20 12:12:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: Two, in fact
(01/20 12:12:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: one was the woman Cate Alexander,
(01/20 12:12:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: The other was the game company Game Tap
(01/20 12:13:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: Again, nobody could understand why a game corp was investing in D’ni
(01/20 12:13:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was but a mystery~!
(01/20 12:13:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: But even so,
(01/20 12:13:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: We all liked Game Tap
(01/20 12:13:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: More so than we did Cate.
(01/20 12:13:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: Maybe it was because of their representative,Blake, who came down to chat on occasion,
(01/20 12:14:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: He was so much more open about things than Cate.
(01/20 12:14:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: Cate was the source of most funding, however,
(01/20 12:14:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: And so, she took more precedence in the explorer’s mind’s eyes.
(01/20 12:15:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was an absurd thing, really, but because of the scream, we had to wait for things to be returned to normal
(01/20 12:15:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: So that we once again had what we once had!
(01/20 12:15:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: History repeated itself.
(01/20 12:15:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: And soon the DRC seemed about as big of a target as they did back in the old days.
(01/20 12:15:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: Cate really wasn’t helping matters much.
(01/20 12:16:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: She decided that, once things were ‘normal’
(01/20 12:16:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: The focus would be on ‘new ages~~!!”
(01/20 12:16:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: According to a poll taken among explorers,
(01/20 12:16:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: That was her intent
(01/20 12:16:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: New new new
(01/20 12:16:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: Without modifying the old.
(01/20 12:16:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: Or expanding,
(01/20 12:17:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: barely maintaining, as it were.
(01/20 12:17:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: Once it was deemed “safe” they’d release it.
(01/20 12:17:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: Some would say Cate was the real reason D”ni fell a second time,
(01/20 12:17:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: Others would say otherwise.
(01/20 12:17:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: Some would claim it was doomed by the scream itself.
(01/20 12:17:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: Whatever the case may be,
(01/20 12:18:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: The second restoration was certainly opening with a ‘bang’
(01/20 12:18:20) DimensionTravelerCalum shakes his head
(01/20 12:18:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: Over this ‘restoring’ period
(01/20 12:18:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: Many explorers grew…tense and tired,
(01/20 12:18:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: Waiting for things they knew had worked before.
(01/20 12:18:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: and so the fighting began
(01/20 12:19:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was, at first, probably just to ‘pass the time’
(01/20 12:19:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: But because of that,
(01/20 12:19:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: Seeds of dissension grew,
(01/20 12:19:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: All the while,
(01/20 12:19:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC still tried to keep balance,
(01/20 12:19:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: But it was obvious to anyone that history was about to repeat itself,
(01/20 12:20:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: Durring this period, a group called
(01/20 12:20:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: “The Anti DRC Movement”
(01/20 12:20:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: Or, ADM for short,
(01/20 12:20:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: Rose into prominence,
(01/20 12:20:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: Headed by one Sydney Austen,
(01/20 12:20:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: She would call the DRC’s motives into question,
(01/20 12:20:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: Time and time again,
(01/20 12:20:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: She’d ask things, stir up the situation,
(01/20 12:21:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: It didn’t help that Translator “Pretty Boy” Nick White was siding with her too.
(01/20 12:21:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: He’d helped Sharper with translations during the first restoration,
(01/20 12:21:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: And it didn’t surprise many that Sharper’s un-rest with the DRC had transferred to the boy,
(01/20 12:22:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: But if he’d been another sharper, that might have been fine,
(01/20 12:22:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: But he wasn’t.
(01/20 12:22:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: He was a *flirt*
(01/20 12:22:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: A “Skirt chaser” as it was.
(01/20 12:22:41) Chigun chuckles
(01/20 12:22:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: Rumors floated about that he was romancing random female explorers,
(01/20 12:22:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: And so Sydney used that to her advantage
(01/20 12:23:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: She would pry information out of Nick, somehow
(01/20 12:23:17) Criswell: You say it lik it’s a bad thing, cal :)
(01/20 12:23:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: And he’d tell things the DRC wanted kept secret at the time.
(01/20 12:23:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC definitely thought it bad,
(01/20 12:23:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: After several months of THAT
(01/20 12:23:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: nick got fired for his behavior.
(01/20 12:24:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: Mostly the ‘secret trading’ thing,
(01/20 12:24:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: But the skirt chaser rumor certainly didn’t help his case any.
(01/20 12:24:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: Explorers were dividing among themselves with all of this,
(01/20 12:24:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: Some siding with the ADM
(01/20 12:24:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: Some with the DRC,
(01/20 12:24:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: Some preferring to be alone,
(01/20 12:25:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: and thanks to a dream that had begun to recur among the explorers
(01/20 12:25:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: The term “Alone or Together” began floating about too.
(01/20 12:25:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: Honestly, if I were whoever was in charge of making that dream,
(01/20 12:25:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: I’d have dropped that line out entirely.
(01/20 12:25:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: It wasn’t helping anyone.
(01/20 12:25:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: And it Still isn’t.
(01/20 12:26:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: we’re only human after all,
(01/20 12:26:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: “if we don’t want to work together, then we shouldn’t have to~”
(01/20 12:26:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: People were reasoning,
(01/20 12:26:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: Fights grew more common,
(01/20 12:26:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: And then the DRC released Eder Delin
(01/20 12:26:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: And at the same time, through a distribution error,
(01/20 12:26:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: The to be released Eder Tsogal.
(01/20 12:27:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: Either the bahro messed with it, or something weird happened
(01/20 12:27:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: Because the DRC pulled the books immediately as soon as they realized people were getting to the sunny swamp over the cool forest
(01/20 12:27:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: But at the same time,
(01/20 12:27:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: Something had changed with the ages
(01/20 12:28:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: Any explorer who had been working with the DRC to help test the ages would confirm this,
(01/20 12:28:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: before release
(01/20 12:28:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: Eder Delin and Tsogal were normal,
(01/20 12:28:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: Gardens.
(01/20 12:28:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: Nothing magical or bahro ish about them.
(01/20 12:28:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: On that botched release…
(01/20 12:28:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: The bahro acted.
(01/20 12:28:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: They carved out tunnels,
(01/20 12:28:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: Added doors and cloths,
(01/20 12:28:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: And placed a puzzle in the ages rather hastily.
(01/20 12:29:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: We could tell it was badly done because,
(01/20 12:29:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: Once explorers managed to figure out Eder Delin…
(01/20 12:29:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: In quite a few many hoods,
(01/20 12:29:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: The doors were *stuck* open.
(01/20 12:29:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: Possibly, though,
(01/20 12:29:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: It may have been an attempt to get the explorers and DRC to work together,
(01/20 12:29:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: Much like the door itself was a puzzle on teamwork,
(01/20 12:30:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: Eventually, the ResEngs got the doors “Working”
(01/20 12:30:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: But only to some degree.
(01/20 12:30:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: The doors STILL break on occasion
(01/20 12:30:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: but they ‘worked’
(01/20 12:30:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: As far as the DRC could understand, anyways.
(01/20 12:31:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: This itself showed us a sign that the DRC were *different* than before.
(01/20 12:31:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: In the past,
(01/20 12:31:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC would try to remove any Bahro or Yeesha placed object on sight
(01/20 12:31:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: Now they were letting Delin and Tsogal be?
(01/20 12:31:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sure, there was *some* investigation,
(01/20 12:31:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: But the DRC let it be.
(01/20 12:32:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was confusing to some,
(01/20 12:32:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: And certainly led to more fights,
(01/20 12:32:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: But the DRC had taken Yeesha’s journey,
(01/20 12:32:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: And as Phil had once said,
(01/20 12:32:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: The journey lets you “feel things”
(01/20 12:32:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: And those doors….
(01/20 12:32:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: They certainly do require a fine touch. haha.
(01/20 12:32:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: One wrong move
(01/20 12:32:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: And it resets.
(01/20 12:33:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: its at this time that the DRC probably went through their age reserves,
(01/20 12:33:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: Looking for anything “Bahro ish”
(01/20 12:33:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: As one of the members would confirm later on,
(01/20 12:33:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: Many of their ages suddenly had bahro artifacts in them.
(01/20 12:33:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: Maybe this was Yeesha’s way of placating us?
(01/20 12:34:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: Or perhaps it wasn’t yeesha at all doing this.
(01/20 12:34:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: The caves were empty save the rings,
(01/20 12:34:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: Not a sound to be heard from the woman.
(01/20 12:34:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was unusual,
(01/20 12:34:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: And definitely became a subject of debate.
(01/20 12:34:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC soon released the Jungle Pod: Negilahn
(01/20 12:35:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: Which a few explorers had heard about in the past.
(01/20 12:35:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: Mostly through a DRC journal/pamphlet that they had discovered between the restorations.
(01/20 12:35:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: It described vast, and various creatures
(01/20 12:35:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: A wide, swampy jungle…
(01/20 12:35:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: And upon finding this pod…
(01/20 12:36:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: explorers found it to be empty.
(01/20 12:36:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC were claiming ignorance on it,
(01/20 12:36:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: Citing that maybe the sudden activity from the pod was scaring the animals away?
(01/20 12:36:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: Secretly, they called in Douglas Sharper once more to investigate,
(01/20 12:37:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: Nick white told us that upon sharper’s return from his preliminary survey…
(01/20 12:37:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: There was a predator that was killing the animals.
(01/20 12:37:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: And not just for food,
(01/20 12:37:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: But for sport..
(01/20 12:37:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: The Urwin, one of the most massive creatures in the jungle,
(01/20 12:37:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: Many of them were found dead,
(01/20 12:37:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: Simply shredded to pieces.
(01/20 12:37:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: As for the other animals…
(01/20 12:38:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: The left said the better.
(01/20 12:38:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: Explorers were outraged,
(01/20 12:38:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: There was a predator?
(01/20 12:38:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: and the DRC called it “Safe”??
(01/20 12:38:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sydney had a field day with it, let me tell you…
(01/20 12:38:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: And the DRC were mad that Nick had spilled the beans~
(01/20 12:39:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was really bad for them,
(01/20 12:39:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: Even more so with the next two pods,
(01/20 12:39:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: Dereno and Payiferen,
(01/20 12:39:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: Dereno had been investigated by some ResEngs
(01/20 12:39:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: And found that the local surface animals were killed in the same way,
(01/20 12:39:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: Payiferen too had similar findings,
(01/20 12:39:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: Explorers wondered
(01/20 12:40:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: the same predator on different ages?
(01/20 12:40:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: No.
(01/20 12:40:12) GHMagic leans left
(01/20 12:40:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was around Payiferen’s release that Cate left a map in the city,
(01/20 12:40:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: Of the single world the pods resided on.
(01/20 12:40:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: adding to the controversy of the pods,
(01/20 12:40:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: The Explorers spending long periods of time there noticed, without warning,
(01/20 12:41:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: That there was a bahro portal appearing at random~
(01/20 12:41:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: Nobody could figure out what was causing it.
(01/20 12:41:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: Not until Payiferen, anyways,
(01/20 12:41:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: There were portals in those pods too,
(01/20 12:41:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: And so, with that map release, many explorers formed a theory in their minds,
(01/20 12:41:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: And with the confirmation of a fourth pod both from the DRC and through the ring inside that cave…
(01/20 12:42:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: They prepared for the last pod,
(01/20 12:42:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: The confirmation of that theory.
(01/20 12:42:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was the most gloomy confirmation any of us ever got.
(01/20 12:42:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: We HATED Tetsonot.
(01/20 12:42:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: The pod reaks of danger!
(01/20 12:42:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: And some other unmentionable smells as welll… XP
(01/20 12:42:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: Bleh.
(01/20 12:42:57) radioflux loves Tetsonot
(01/20 12:43:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: While opinion on the pod has changed over the years,
(01/20 12:43:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: People were in an uproar against the DRC
(01/20 12:43:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: The pods were CLEARLY not safe.
(01/20 12:43:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: Both from a predator standpoint,
(01/20 12:43:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: And from Tetsonot’s ghastly state of “repair”
(01/20 12:43:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC told us it was safe,
(01/20 12:43:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: Repeatedly,
(01/20 12:44:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: I still refuse to beleive that tetsonot’s safe.
(01/20 12:44:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: It’s just…absurd how they left it.
(01/20 12:44:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: It’s just another mark that the explorers claim to have been left by Cate’s rush for “newnewnew”
(01/20 12:44:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: And so we were divided
(01/20 12:44:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: Heavily,
(01/20 12:45:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: Even though explorers were wary of the Pod’s safety,
(01/20 12:45:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: And of other ages now as well,
(01/20 12:45:28) morning satelite: electricity and water do not mix well
(01/20 12:45:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC were continuing on their supposedly open and yet “safe” work.
(01/20 12:45:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: Michael Engberg, one of the DRC’s top engineers, brought his daughter down
(01/20 12:46:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: She was as much of an explorer as any of us.
(01/20 12:46:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: And…ironically in the months to come…
(01/20 12:46:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: We’d all somewhat take on more “DRC like” Rolls in trying to keep her safe.
(01/20 12:46:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: “Wheely,” Willow Engberg,
(01/20 12:47:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: many explorers wanted to keep her just as safe as the DRC were claiming to keep us safe.
(01/20 12:47:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: Wheely….well..
(01/20 12:47:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: She just thought everyone was over-reacting.
(01/20 12:48:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: The time span that i’ve covered this week is about six months,
(01/20 12:48:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: Slightly 7,
(01/20 12:48:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: Maybe closer to 8?
(01/20 12:48:31) DimensionTravelerCalum shrugs
(01/20 12:48:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: But in any such case,
(01/20 12:48:43) Alien bids 9
(01/20 12:48:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: Explorers were heavily divided on subjects in the cavern
(01/20 12:48:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: “Are we the predator, or prey?”
(01/20 12:49:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: “Are we safe?”
(01/20 12:49:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: “What is with the DRC?”
(01/20 12:49:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: the list goes on.
(01/20 12:49:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: The Bahro’s, or Yeesha’s, attempts to keep us united didn’t work.
(01/20 12:49:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: Many people would argue during door runs,
(01/20 12:49:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: Or not work together at all.
(01/20 12:49:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: It took someone of a strong nature to keep a run functional then.
(01/20 12:50:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: Still does, on occasion.
(01/20 12:50:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: people still look for the animal population,
(01/20 12:50:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: And it’s still low in numbers,
(01/20 12:50:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: It hasn’t recovered,
(01/20 12:50:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: Probably never will.
(01/20 12:50:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: Unity,
(01/20 12:50:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: Patience,
(01/20 12:51:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: Those were the two ‘journeys’ we’d taken up to this point.
(01/20 12:51:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: But we were still divided.
(01/20 12:51:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: We were still fractured.
(01/20 12:51:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: And we still are.
(01/20 12:51:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: the events that would happen over the remaining months of the second restoration…
(01/20 12:51:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: They didn’t do much to bring us together.
(01/20 12:51:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: People were fools,
(01/20 12:51:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: People were geniuses
(01/20 12:52:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: People were people.
(01/20 12:52:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: We couldn’t get along,
(01/20 12:52:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: Not well enough.
(01/20 12:52:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: We still look for people we can blame,
(01/20 12:52:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: We still look for things we can argue about.
(01/20 12:52:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: We still have no strong unity.
(01/20 12:52:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: And all because of that blasted phrase.
(01/20 12:52:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: “Alone or Together.”
(01/20 12:53:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: And so as the gears of time set to repeat themselves again,
(01/20 12:53:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: I ask you all to consider what you’ve heard,
(01/20 12:53:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: What we will continue to learn,
(01/20 12:53:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: And will always eventually forget….
(01/20 12:53:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: But still remember.
(01/20 12:53:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: We all come from different walks of life.
(01/20 12:54:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: We all represent different countries,
(01/20 12:54:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: Life times,
(01/20 12:54:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: Experiences,
(01/20 12:54:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: many of us who lived through these times are no longer here,
(01/20 12:54:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: And so those that have not been through it,
(01/20 12:54:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: They repeat what they don’t know already happened.
(01/20 12:54:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: But isnt that what history is all about?
(01/20 12:54:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: Informing people so we DONT make the same mistakes?
(01/20 12:55:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: I don’t know,
(01/20 12:55:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: That’s all up to you to decide.
(01/20 12:55:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: it’s always up to the people to unite together,
(01/20 12:55:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: And it’s ALWAYS up to them to do what they think is right in the heat of the moment.
(01/20 12:55:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: But in retrospect,
(01/20 12:55:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: It’s not always obvious.
(01/20 12:55:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: several times in human history,
(01/20 12:55:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: Events were acted upon,
(01/20 12:56:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: Being the right thing to do then,
(01/20 12:56:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: But when looked upon,
(01/20 12:56:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: People see the things that could have been done,
(01/20 12:56:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: Having the ‘benefit’ of understanding more information,
(01/20 12:56:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: And looking at it all in hindsight.
(01/20 12:56:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: So as i close tonight’s Heritage Night,
(01/20 12:56:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: And I see the scars of history’s past,
(01/20 12:56:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: And the tears and fissures that will form new scars.
(01/20 12:57:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: I think quietly,
(01/20 12:57:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: How do we navigate this landscape of time’s sand,
(01/20 12:57:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: And scared land scrapes?
(01/20 12:57:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: How do we find our paths?
(01/20 12:57:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: In the stars?
(01/20 12:57:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: In the points of history?
(01/20 12:58:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: How can we live without retracing the lines of the past?
(01/20 12:58:10) DimensionTravelerCalum bows
(01/20 12:58:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: I thank you all for coming, tonight
(01/20 12:58:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: Next week,

HERITAGE NIGHT 50

Heritage Night -- Myst Community

[spoiler](02/03 11:51:05) Chat.log started...
(02/03 11:51:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: shorah all.
(02/03 11:51:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: I Hope you've all had a good week,
(02/03 11:53:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: We'll be covering Scars week this week
(02/03 11:53:40) Tamsyn: hello
(02/03 11:53:50) Z'ephyr has bandaids
(02/03 11:53:58) Tamsyn: Ok
(02/03 11:54:00) Tamsyn: Thx
(02/03 11:54:28) Alien: I think you were right about the Superbowl
(02/03 11:54:42) Tamsyn: hello
(02/03 11:54:45) Tamsyn waves hello
(02/03 11:54:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: You think so?
(02/03 11:54:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: Heh,
(02/03 11:54:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: Americans and their football. I really don't get it :/
(02/03 11:55:01) Alien: it seems quieter here than normal
(02/03 11:55:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: It is a tad smaller,
(02/03 11:55:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: Definitely more so from Kirel yesterday.
(02/03 11:55:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: Bah, sports. i really don't get 'em
(02/03 11:56:26) Z'ephyr thinks back to cross country skiing
(02/03 11:56:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: You know who really liked sports though?
(02/03 11:56:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: Football especially?
(02/03 11:56:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was *Sharper*
(02/03 11:57:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: Man that guy loved his Patriots games.
(02/03 11:57:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: Are they in the line up this year?
(02/03 11:57:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: If so, I bet he's right there in the crowd.
(02/03 11:57:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: Pro'lly, anyways.
(02/03 11:57:38) Alien: it's Ravens vs 49'ers
(02/03 11:57:41) Z'ephyr says oh yeah the sharper image
(02/03 11:57:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: Ah, hah.
(02/03 11:57:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: Ravens vs 49ers?
(02/03 11:58:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: Never heard of em.
(02/03 11:58:14) Z'ephyr: It gets real quiet about now
(02/03 11:58:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: But good luck to them, i guess.
(02/03 11:58:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: Anyways yeah,
(02/03 11:58:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: About time to start.
(02/03 11:58:45) Z'ephyr zips his lip
(02/03 11:58:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: Alright everyone
(02/03 11:58:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: The usual stuff
(02/03 11:58:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: Snacks and stuff in the classroom,
(02/03 11:59:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: Got less of it this week
(02/03 11:59:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: Caterers are busy with super bowl stuff.
(02/03 11:59:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: drinks chilled in the fountain,
(02/03 11:59:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: Blah blah, usual stuff,
(02/03 11:59:35) DimensionTravelerCalum flips a few pages in his note book...
(02/03 11:59:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: i don't think there are any pressing concerns at the moment,
(02/03 11:59:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: So....
(02/03 11:59:54) Tom(Samoth): where is the Barga machine, Calum?
(02/03 12:00:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: We'll skip the running gag of calling someone down to the parking lot this week.
(02/03 12:00:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: Classroom, Tom.
(02/03 12:00:18) Tom(Samoth): Thank you!
(02/03 12:00:32) Alien: aww I parked my car awkwardly just for this :p
(02/03 12:00:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: Alright so...
(02/03 12:00:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: Starting up,
(02/03 12:00:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: We'll recap briefly,
(02/03 12:00:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: Things in the cavern were tense
(02/03 12:01:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: even with journeys like the gardens and the pods to get us to learn patience and teamwork,
(02/03 12:01:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: It wasn't enough.
(02/03 12:01:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: Everyone was all sort of drifting, randomly
(02/03 12:01:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC weren't really unified in their leadership,
(02/03 12:01:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: And neither were the explorers,
(02/03 12:02:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: This week is a story of "Scars."
(02/03 12:02:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: Physical and mental and imaginary ones.
(02/03 12:02:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: The first scar...
(02/03 12:02:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: The first was a crack.
(02/03 12:02:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: This week of time that we're covering began rather normally,
(02/03 12:03:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: Laxman, one of the four remaining DRC members, was going around the hoods talking to explorers.
(02/03 12:03:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: He was promoting the next age, Called Minkata, which would soon be released.
(02/03 12:04:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: Suddenly, much like before during that town hall meeting that was bahro-jacked,
(02/03 12:04:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: He got a message,
(02/03 12:04:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: There had been some seismic activity in Ae'gura,
(02/03 12:04:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: He had to go check it out, apparently,
(02/03 12:04:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: We didn't think much of it at the time,
(02/03 12:04:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: Because, well,
(02/03 12:05:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: The Great Scream,
(02/03 12:05:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: That had caused some instabilities in the ages,
(02/03 12:05:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: Ae'gura especially.
(02/03 12:05:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: inbetween the time that Laxman went to investigate, and the announcement that was soon to follow,
(02/03 12:06:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: The explorers gossiped over the latest news
(02/03 12:06:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: Nick White, that infamous "skirt chasing flirt"
(02/03 12:06:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: had been fired,
(02/03 12:06:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: while we were sure it was mostly for his flirting, there was also the fact that he'd given out trade secrets to explorers,
(02/03 12:07:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: One of which was that he and Sharper were going on an expedition to Negilahn,
(02/03 12:07:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sharper, Nick said, was going to hunt down the predator.
(02/03 12:07:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: Later that day, we got a KI mail from the DRC,
(02/03 12:08:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: Laxman's investigation had uncovered a rather small crack in the Kahlo Pub wall,
(02/03 12:08:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was just in the corner,
(02/03 12:08:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: Nothing too worrisome,
(02/03 12:08:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: But the DRC asked that people be cautious around it,
(02/03 12:08:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: Naturally,
(02/03 12:08:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: Explorers flocked to the Kahlo pub to see it,
(02/03 12:09:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was something "new" after all,
(02/03 12:09:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: And that was what the "new" DRC management had been promising,
(02/03 12:09:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: "New new new!"
(02/03 12:09:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: -_-;
(02/03 12:09:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: The next day, with the crack still in the explorer's minds eye,
(02/03 12:09:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: Willow "Wheely" Engberg,
(02/03 12:10:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: Daughter of one of the DRC members,
(02/03 12:10:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: Arrived in Ae'gura along with a friend, Rosette Taylor,
(02/03 12:10:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: Rosette was visiting D'ni for the first time, and Wheely was showing her around,
(02/03 12:10:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: They'd already been through the neighborhoods, collecting markers!
(02/03 12:11:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: Explorers, of course, suddenly switched gears the moment Wheely arrived,
(02/03 12:11:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: Instead of wanting to *see* the crack themselves,
(02/03 12:11:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: They tried to keep the two girls from seeing it,
(02/03 12:11:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: Insisting that it was dangerous,
(02/03 12:11:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: And indeed it was...
(02/03 12:11:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: Wheely thought her father,and the explorers themselves, were simply being overly cautuous,
(02/03 12:12:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: They had a right to be worried, however,
(02/03 12:12:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: Explorers were reporting increased barho screams heard from the city,
(02/03 12:12:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: Some even spotting them on the rooftops!
(02/03 12:12:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: And the crack?
(02/03 12:12:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: It had grown since it had first appeared,
(02/03 12:12:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was widening~
(02/03 12:13:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: And it was becoming more and more unstable looking too,
(02/03 12:13:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: a collapse could occur at any moment,
(02/03 12:13:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC set up barriers around it at one point,
(02/03 12:13:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: And the Explorers themselves wanted to keep Wheely and Rosette as far away from it as possible
(02/03 12:14:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: Many forming a barrier out of themselves around the entrance to the pub!
(02/03 12:14:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: Its funny,
(02/03 12:14:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: Isn't it?
(02/03 12:14:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: Explorers who themselves wanted to see the crack were trying to keep others from getting near it,
(02/03 12:14:45) Tom(Samoth): They must have had a feeling...
(02/03 12:14:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: Indeed, Tom,
(02/03 12:14:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: Many of us did,
(02/03 12:14:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: Many of us did...
(02/03 12:15:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: The second "scar"
(02/03 12:15:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: that was a false one.
(02/03 12:15:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: Wheely and Rosette had gone off marker hunting,
(02/03 12:15:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: And near the Library,
(02/03 12:15:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: Wheely shouted that she found another crack!
(02/03 12:15:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: And like the fools we were, we rushed to find it,
(02/03 12:16:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: Some to try to keep Wheely and Rosette away, I think,
(02/03 12:16:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: Others just wanting to see the bloody thing.
(02/03 12:16:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: The city's pop limit was filled up really quickly,
(02/03 12:16:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: Explorers were linking in from all over.
(02/03 12:16:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: One of them trying to get in was me.
(02/03 12:16:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: Like you said Tom,
(02/03 12:16:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: I had a feeling.
(02/03 12:16:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: i'm sure a lot of us did.
(02/03 12:17:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: I realized almost instantly, somehow,
(02/03 12:17:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: That the pub was now unguarded,
(02/03 12:17:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: I linked through to the nexus,
(02/03 12:17:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: But i never got to the city.
(02/03 12:17:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: By the time i managed to get any kind of message to anyone,
(02/03 12:17:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: It would already be too late.
(02/03 12:18:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: Wheely and Rosette had vanished from the city.
(02/03 12:18:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: explorers, still thinking that there was a crack by the library,
(02/03 12:18:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: Searched over it,
(02/03 12:18:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: In case the two girls had fallen in,
(02/03 12:18:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: the thing is,
(02/03 12:18:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: Being a DRC member's daughter,
(02/03 12:19:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: Wheely had access to all of the tricks the DRC had,
(02/03 12:19:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: Oneof which was an invisibility function,
(02/03 12:19:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: She threw her voice across the city, to make it seem like she was at the library,
(02/03 12:19:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: then when the pub was unguarded,
(02/03 12:19:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: She and Rosette slipped through into the Pub.
(02/03 12:19:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: We don't know exactly what happened,
(02/03 12:20:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: Only Wheely's later testimony,
(02/03 12:20:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: But what is known is that they found a cave inside the crack
(02/03 12:20:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: A bahro cave.
(02/03 12:20:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: Marked with all kinds of glyphs,
(02/03 12:20:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: Rosette touched one,
(02/03 12:20:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: A bahro appeared,
(02/03 12:20:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: It tried to touch their Relto books,
(02/03 12:21:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: And then there was a cave in.
(02/03 12:21:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: Rosette was dead instantly, crushed by the debris,
(02/03 12:21:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: And wheely was knocked out.
(02/03 12:21:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: When the DRC found out that Wheely had 'found' a crack by the library,
(02/03 12:21:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: They emptied the city to begin searching.
(02/03 12:22:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was a point of concern in D'ni,
(02/03 12:22:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: We all forgot about our squabbles,
(02/03 12:22:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: And our fights, and grudges,
(02/03 12:22:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: we were all hoping for Wheely and Rosette's safe return.
(02/03 12:22:57) Tamsyn: it's sad
(02/03 12:23:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: Indeed,
(02/03 12:23:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: We had no clue what had happened,
(02/03 12:23:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: But we managed to piece it together,
(02/03 12:23:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: The girl's had tricked us,
(02/03 12:23:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: Using our own habits and wants to see what was 'new' against us,
(02/03 12:23:38) DimensionTravelerCalum shakes his head
(02/03 12:23:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: We had a feeling, something was wrong.
(02/03 12:24:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: Bahro were showing up more frequently in the city, around that time,
(02/03 12:24:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: We didn't think much about it,
(02/03 12:24:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: We should have,
(02/03 12:24:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: Nick returned from his trip with Sharper, alone,
(02/03 12:24:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: Saying that Sharper could handle himself,
(02/03 12:25:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: Nick taught some explorers a trick to get around the City lockout,
(02/03 12:25:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: And once he himself was through into the city,
(02/03 12:25:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: He immediately told them all to not follow him!
(02/03 12:25:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: He simply wanted a way in, so he could try to help.
(02/03 12:25:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: In the end, he managed to get the DRC to let us all in again,
(02/03 12:26:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: And it was by then that we'd learned that Laxman had reactivated Wheely's KI.
(02/03 12:26:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: Three days after the initial crack,
(02/03 12:26:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: Wheely finally woke up,
(02/03 12:26:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: She explained what I had just told you all,
(02/03 12:27:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: About the crack being fake, and them sneaking into the kahlo pub
(02/03 12:27:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: Wheely's Relto book was disabled,
(02/03 12:27:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: Whether from the Bahro cave or the Bahro touching it,
(02/03 12:28:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: we don't know for sure.
(02/03 12:28:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: I lean towards the former, though,
(02/03 12:28:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: Considering...
(02/03 12:28:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: Considering what later happened,
(02/03 12:28:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC began digging from the upper floors of the Kahlo Building,
(02/03 12:28:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: going down as fastly and safely as they could so they could get to Wheely,
(02/03 12:29:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: Wheely, being out for the better part of a day, was somewhat dehydrated,
(02/03 12:29:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: She was tired, injured to an unknown degree, and trapped.
(02/03 12:29:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: she'd lapse in and out of consciousness for the better part of a day,
(02/03 12:29:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: But every time she was awake,
(02/03 12:30:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: Michael, Her father, would try to encourage her,
(02/03 12:30:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: And the explorers would cry out that they were there, waiting for her to come back,
(02/03 12:30:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: During one of those moments of awareness,
(02/03 12:30:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: She told us that there was a bahro in the cave with them.
(02/03 12:30:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: Her.
(02/03 12:30:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sorry...
(02/03 12:30:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: i...
(02/03 12:30:57) DimensionTravelerCalum shakes his head
(02/03 12:31:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: Explorers and Michael himself both agreed that it was likely as trapped in there as she was,
(02/03 12:31:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: Most of us believed that it was safe,
(02/03 12:31:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: That it didn't want to hurt her,,,
(02/03 12:31:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: Maybe it only wanted to help?
(02/03 12:31:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: At first, it seemed so,
(02/03 12:32:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: Wheely, at one point, was advised to draw a bahro glyph for "Rain"
(02/03 12:32:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: We'd all seen it through the game Myst V,
(02/03 12:32:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: But it was apparently an actual symbol,
(02/03 12:32:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: Not surprising, really,
(02/03 12:33:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: But still...
(02/03 12:33:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: Wheely drew the glyph
(02/03 12:33:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: And the bahro "took" it.
(02/03 12:33:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: When wheely went unconscious next,
(02/03 12:33:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: Her KI started reporting the age incorrectly,
(02/03 12:33:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: Even though the signal insisted she was still in Ae'gura,
(02/03 12:33:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: Micahel went on a hunt through those ages, trying to find her,
(02/03 12:34:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: on the slight off chance that she might actually be there.
(02/03 12:34:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: Eventually, she woke up again,
(02/03 12:34:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: And she was...not thirsty?
(02/03 12:34:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was strange,
(02/03 12:34:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: Why would the bahro help her?
(02/03 12:35:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: Nick gave us a report from Sharper around this point,
(02/03 12:35:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: sharper had built a trap for it,
(02/03 12:35:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: an Urwin named "Peggy Sue" was the bait.
(02/03 12:35:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: and the bait had been taken,
(02/03 12:35:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: The predator had killed the Urwin,and Sharper was now in pursuit.
(02/03 12:36:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: Radio silence from him,
(02/03 12:36:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: Now, the explorers were worried on two fronts,
(02/03 12:36:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: Would sharper be ok?
(02/03 12:36:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: Would wheely be OK?
(02/03 12:36:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC were close to wheely soon enough,
(02/03 12:36:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: but they'd found something...
(02/03 12:37:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: Something strange.
(02/03 12:37:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: A bahro glyph,
(02/03 12:37:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: Nick reported that it was similar to something he'd seen in Negilahn on a tree.
(02/03 12:37:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: But KI pics wouldn't see it.
(02/03 12:37:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: It just 'vanished'
(02/03 12:37:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: So explorers did their best to recreate it from descriptions
(02/03 12:37:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: A zig zag with circles on either side.
(02/03 12:38:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: Nick and Marie both confirmed the explorer's version of the symbol as the one they'd each found.
(02/03 12:38:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: But again, what did it mean?
(02/03 12:38:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC had to destroy the glyph, however, to continue digging.
(02/03 12:38:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: One more floor to go.
(02/03 12:38:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: the days seemed to blur together into one,
(02/03 12:39:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC kept digging,
(02/03 12:39:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sharper kept hunting,
(02/03 12:39:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: The explorers kept praying...
(02/03 12:39:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: All over, everyone was tense, waiting for something to happen...
(02/03 12:39:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: Soon, the DRC were only minutes away
(02/03 12:39:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: They got a hole big enough to lower a linking book into the cave,
(02/03 12:39:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: But the book, strangely, refused to work.
(02/03 12:40:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: Much like the other Bahro caves we'd found...
(02/03 12:40:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: As the DRC got closer,
(02/03 12:40:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: Wheely reported that the Bahro was growing agitated,
(02/03 12:40:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: Panicking almost.
(02/03 12:40:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was saying something
(02/03 12:40:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: "No...something:"
(02/03 12:40:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: Then, explorers managed to piece it together
(02/03 12:40:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: "Noloben."
(02/03 12:40:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: A bahro was speaking D'ni,
(02/03 12:40:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: The name of an age.
(02/03 12:41:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: One that we all too well recognized from Myst V, yet again...
(02/03 12:41:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was a horrid place,
(02/03 12:41:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: A d'ni man had tortured bahro,
(02/03 12:41:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: Cut the skin off of one to use it as his own personal linking platform.
(02/03 12:41:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: Things were wrong.
(02/03 12:41:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: Really, really wrong.
(02/03 12:41:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: Everyone felt it in those last few minutes,
(02/03 12:42:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: Wheely was getting scared,
(02/03 12:42:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: And as the hole barely got big enough to fit someone through...
(02/03 12:42:18) DimensionTravelerCalum flinches
(02/03 12:42:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: wheely screamed,
(02/03 12:42:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: everyone screamed.
(02/03 12:42:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: It...
(02/03 12:42:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: That bahro,
(02/03 12:42:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: It had killed her,
(02/03 12:42:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: In an instant,
(02/03 12:42:58) DiMare: no!!!
(02/03 12:43:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: Everyone was in shock.
(02/03 12:43:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: "why?"
(02/03 12:43:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: "No! it's not possible!!" others cried,
(02/03 12:43:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: But...
(02/03 12:43:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC...they'd seen it happen...
(02/03 12:43:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: Watched it, unable to do a thing.
(02/03 12:43:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was over before anyone knew it had happened.
(02/03 12:44:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: The poor ResEng that had been partway lowered cried out to be pulled back up
(02/03 12:44:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: Poor 223.
(02/03 12:44:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: He didn't need to see that...
(02/03 12:44:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: Nobody did...
(02/03 12:44:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: Cate called the DRC chat lines to be set to private mode
(02/03 12:44:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: And we knew nothing more from them that evening.
(02/03 12:45:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: Later, we would find out that,...
(02/03 12:45:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: That Wheely had been killed exactly like the animals in the Pod age had been.
(02/03 12:45:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: And some people realized with horror.
(02/03 12:45:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sharper was chasing a bahro.
(02/03 12:46:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: We...
(02/03 12:46:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: It'...
(02/03 12:46:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: I'm sorry, i really don't know how to ever move on from this point.
(02/03 12:46:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: We were all foolish,
(02/03 12:46:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: We thought the bahro were all kind,
(02/03 12:46:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: we thought the one that had helped her...
(02/03 12:46:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: We didn't understand why it had done that.
(02/03 12:46:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: Why help, then kill, her?
(02/03 12:47:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: Later on,
(02/03 12:47:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: It would occur to us...
(02/03 12:47:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: There were two bahro,
(02/03 12:47:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: One good,
(02/03 12:47:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: One bad,
(02/03 12:47:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: The third scar,
(02/03 12:47:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was emotional.
(02/03 12:47:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: We all felt...wronged somehow.
(02/03 12:47:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: Like a piece of ourselves had been ripped out.
(02/03 12:48:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: We had no clue what Sharper's status was,
(02/03 12:48:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: The next day,
(02/03 12:48:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: As explorers wore black in mourning,
(02/03 12:48:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: We finally heard from him.
(02/03 12:48:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: And he told us the other side of that deadly coin.
(02/03 12:49:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: He'd planted a trap with that Urwin,
(02/03 12:49:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: Hoping to chase the predator down,
(02/03 12:49:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: The urwin was beheaded
(02/03 12:49:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: And it's MASSIVE head was dragged out into the jungle
(02/03 12:49:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sharper followed it,
(02/03 12:49:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: Forgetting for a moment that the predators NEVER took anything
(02/03 12:49:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: Never.
(02/03 12:50:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: he realized it too late.
(02/03 12:50:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: And then there was chaos around him.
(02/03 12:50:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: Bahro were everywhere
(02/03 12:50:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: Fighting,
(02/03 12:50:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: Killing,
(02/03 12:50:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: They were at *war*
(02/03 12:50:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: with themselves.
(02/03 12:50:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: A Bahro Civil War.
(02/03 12:51:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: And suddenly it all made sense to us,
(02/03 12:51:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: The good bahro and the bad bahro,
(02/03 12:51:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: The one who helped,
(02/03 12:51:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: And the one who killed.
(02/03 12:51:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: either Sharper, or Wheely,
(02/03 12:51:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: They were bait in a trap,
(02/03 12:51:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: Just as Sharper had made a trap for them...
(02/03 12:51:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: If two bahro hadn't saved Sharper during that night, however,
(02/03 12:52:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: We would have had two deaths instead of only one.
(02/03 12:52:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: So as we sat there, listening to sharper's tale,
(02/03 12:52:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: We understood something.
(02/03 12:52:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: "Noloben"
(02/03 12:52:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was a war cry.
(02/03 12:53:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: Not naming the age like we'd initially thought...
(02/03 12:53:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: "For Noloben."
(02/03 12:53:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: As in...
(02/03 12:53:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: For what happened on that age.
(02/03 12:53:36) Tamsyn: revenge?
(02/03 12:53:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: The bahro were, as far as we could tell,
(02/03 12:53:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: Split into two sides,
(02/03 12:53:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: One who sided with the Explorers,
(02/03 12:53:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: With the D'ni and with Yeesha and with Peace,
(02/03 12:54:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: And there was another,
(02/03 12:54:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: Whose seemingly rage induced goal was "Revenge."
(02/03 12:54:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: but as we know,
(02/03 12:54:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: There is never only two sides to a story.
(02/03 12:54:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: It wasn't as black and white as we thought,
(02/03 12:55:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: but after we learned this,
(02/03 12:55:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: It would still take time to sink in,
(02/03 12:55:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: We'd learned something drastic,
(02/03 12:55:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: And we'd felt our hearts torn in half,
(02/03 12:56:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: Michael Engberg was mourning his daughter's death,
(02/03 12:56:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: We all felt for him,
(02/03 12:56:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: But randomly, almost out of nowhere,
(02/03 12:56:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: During his silent vigil over the crack where Wheely had died,
(02/03 12:56:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: He stood up, calling out
(02/03 12:57:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: "Dr Watson!"
(02/03 12:57:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: Before running off to the Nexus
(02/03 12:57:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: Where he vanished to "Descent," the KI noted,
(02/03 12:57:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: before he vanished entirely.
(02/03 12:57:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: Kodama and Sutherland went looking for him,
(02/03 12:57:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: But he wasn't found.
(02/03 12:57:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: He was on aj ourney.
(02/03 12:57:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: We all were,
(02/03 12:57:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: And it all comes back to that.
(02/03 12:58:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: A journey.
(02/03 12:58:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: That symbol,
(02/03 12:58:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: The zigzag and the circles,
(02/03 12:58:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: Some say it represents Yeesha's Journey,
(02/03 12:58:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: Others, the option of choice,
(02/03 12:58:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: But i realize now,
(02/03 12:58:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: it's not about sides,
(02/03 12:59:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: Not about choice,
(02/03 12:59:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: It's about consequences.
(02/03 12:59:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: Yeesha had told us,
(02/03 12:59:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: "You have torn in half the very being of a Bahro."
(02/03 12:59:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: As part of a journey to 'free' them,
(02/03 12:59:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: And now,
(02/03 12:59:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: Now i realize that,
(02/03 13:00:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: I stumbled on the words just a moment ago,
(02/03 13:00:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: we had our hearts torn in half with Wheely's death,
(02/03 13:00:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: the Fourth of the Scars is Minkata,
(02/03 13:00:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: Whose name means "Heavily Scarred:
(02/03 13:00:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: The age itself.
(02/03 13:01:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: That desert with the paths,
(02/03 13:01:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: A journey of journeys.
(02/03 13:01:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: And what is a journey but life itself?
(02/03 13:01:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: The stones told us right there,
(02/03 13:01:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: "Find your path in the stars."
(02/03 13:01:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: It's exactly what Yeesha had told us too
(02/03 13:01:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: "Find a way, make a home."
(02/03 13:02:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: So, having gone way over my time,
(02/03 13:02:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: I'll close this week on that note,
(02/03 13:02:29) DimensionTravelerCalum bows
(02/03 13:02:31) Tom(Samoth) claps his hands
(02/03 13:02:34) Alien claps her hands

(02/03 13:02:46) *MagicSang* cheers
(02/03 13:02:49) Jynn claps her hands
(02/03 13:02:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: Same hood, same time,
(02/03 13:02:54) trainwreck cheers
(02/03 13:02:59) Saturo claps his hands
(02/03 13:03:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: And again, thank you all for coming.
(02/03 13:03:04) DimensionTravelerCalum bows

(02/10 12:00:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: With that out of the way, announcements,
(02/10 12:00:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: I guess Mr Flint has a call on line 1??
(02/10 12:00:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: Putting that aside,

(02/10 12:02:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: So yeah!
(02/10 12:02:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: Happy anniversary everyone,
(02/10 12:02:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: Three years huh?
(02/10 12:02:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: Hard to believe it.
(02/10 12:02:20) Heritage Night Intercom buzzes again with the CBCDCDEDCBABC melody,
(02/10 12:02:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: Eh, I guess mister flint still hasn't picked up?
(02/10 12:02:32) Boywhith cheers
(02/10 12:02:33) *MagicSang* leans right

(02/10 12:03:17) Heritage Night Intercom: music stream URL again: http://198.24.145.146:9834
(02/10 12:03:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: Thanks, HNI,
(02/10 12:03:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: Anyways
(02/10 12:03:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: Let's get started shall we?
(02/10 12:03:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: Last week, we covered the events of "Scars" week.
(02/10 12:04:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: Where in we learned that the predator of the pod age was in fact a whole side of the Bahro War!
(02/10 12:04:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: And also, we lost some of our own,
(02/10 12:04:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: Two explorers who went somewhere they shouldn't have,
(02/10 12:04:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: Regardless, time moves on,
(02/10 12:04:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: and we begin this week on a "Lighter" note
(02/10 12:05:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: It's a bit of a lame pun, i suppose,
(02/10 12:05:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: But it's true.
(02/10 12:05:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: The announcement was given by the DRC that the Great Zero had finished its main calibration!
(02/10 12:05:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: It would be activated to it's second stage soon,
(02/10 12:05:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: This left many explorers in a bad mood, however,
(02/10 12:06:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: They felt that this announcement came from nowhere!
(02/10 12:06:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: With the supposed "monitor" for the Zero's calibration not having moved one bit.
(02/10 12:06:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: Regardless,
(02/10 12:06:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: Many explorers were instead enthralled by the new KI feature:
(02/10 12:06:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: We could make our own MARKER MISSIONS!
(02/10 12:07:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: Quite a thing huh?
(02/10 12:07:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: these bright little disks?
(02/10 12:07:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: Well
(02/10 12:07:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: Most people went on a spree and did silly things like...
(02/10 12:07:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: Filling their entire relto hut with all 1000 markers,
(02/10 12:07:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: Others began putting them to practical use!
(02/10 12:07:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: Like lighting dark passages in Eder Gira,
(02/10 12:08:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: Or leaving a trail of breadcrumbs in Minkata
(02/10 12:08:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was a happy time after such tragedy,
(02/10 12:08:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: And never to this day have I ever seen so many people happy about MARKERS of all things.
(02/10 12:08:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: we'd been given the keys to something beautiful
(02/10 12:09:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: And if you've SEEN some of the marker art some people have created?
(02/10 12:09:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: You'd understand why! :)
(02/10 12:09:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: The day after we heard the announcement,
(02/10 12:09:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC invited explorers to gather in their Hood instanced versions of the GZ courtyard,
(02/10 12:10:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC were hoping that the activation in the "Prime" GZ would affect the others,
(02/10 12:10:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: And it was a good thing they went along with the Bahro and Yeesha's instancing in this case,
(02/10 12:10:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: Because my own hood at the time,
(02/10 12:10:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: Uru Obession--
(02/10 12:10:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was jammed PACKED full of explorers
(02/10 12:10:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: You could barely move around without bumping into someone
(02/10 12:10:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: And UO was one of MANY Popular hoods at the time,
(02/10 12:11:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: There was NO WAY a single GZ courtyard could hold so many people!
(02/10 12:11:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: soon enough
(02/10 12:11:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: The GZ was activated,
(02/10 12:11:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: You can find videos of it online,
(02/10 12:11:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: One of which on the old Guild of Greeter's Website,
(02/10 12:11:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: It's truly a sight to behold,
(02/10 12:12:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: There would be a loud hum,
(02/10 12:12:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: And then a SPARK!
(02/10 12:12:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: And these sets of orange pillars would just BREATHE a beam of blue light
(02/10 12:12:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: It shot across the entire path,
(02/10 12:12:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: Through reflectors and through crystals,
(02/10 12:12:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: And then it hit the MAIN GZ device
(02/10 12:12:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: There was a spark of lightning
(02/10 12:12:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: And then another
(02/10 12:12:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: And then--
(02/10 12:13:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: PCHOOO!
(02/10 12:13:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: A big ol' beam of blue light shot out
(02/10 12:13:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: Everyone started clapping by then
(02/10 12:13:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: But it wasn't over
(02/10 12:13:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: The GZ then began to SPIN.
(02/10 12:13:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: Slowly at first
(02/10 12:13:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: But it turned on its axis,
(02/10 12:13:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: And...
(02/10 12:13:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: It began to scan the entire city!
(02/10 12:13:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: Neigh,
(02/10 12:13:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: The entire CAVERN!
(02/10 12:14:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: Of course, the visibility of the beam fades out past the city limits,
(02/10 12:14:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: So we don't even see it as close as K'veer
(02/10 12:14:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: Let alone these hoods here,
(02/10 12:14:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: But still,
(02/10 12:14:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was quite a sight to behold,
(02/10 12:14:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: And then, in true Explorer fashion,
(02/10 12:14:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: We crashed the KI lattice
(02/10 12:14:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: The poor system couldn't handle all of those KI's online at once,
(02/10 12:15:04) radioflux cheers
(02/10 12:15:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: And along with the GZ itself?
(02/10 12:15:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: It just crashed,.
(02/10 12:15:13) DimensionTravelerCalum shakes his head
(02/10 12:15:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: We are truly something, are we not?
(02/10 12:15:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: Heh..
(02/10 12:15:33) Fil: :)
(02/10 12:15:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: There was easily over 400 people there,
(02/10 12:15:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: Spread across so many hoods,
(02/10 12:15:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: Potentially even more,
(02/10 12:15:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: But we all saw it,
(02/10 12:16:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: The next day,
(02/10 12:16:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: Once the KI's had recovered
(02/10 12:16:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: Watcher's Pub was released on the Nexus
(02/10 12:16:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: this pub...
(02/10 12:16:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: It once belonged to Douglass Sharper,
(02/10 12:16:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: He'd been in the middle of restoring it when it was taken from him by the DRC
(02/10 12:16:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: Back in 2003,
(02/10 12:17:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: We'd seen it as he'd had it in-between restorations,
(02/10 12:17:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: Yellow walls
(02/10 12:17:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: Vases,
(02/10 12:17:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: And working D'ni technology
(02/10 12:17:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: The doors, and the imagers,
(02/10 12:17:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: Oh, and there was a ROOF too.
(02/10 12:17:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: compared to now?
(02/10 12:17:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: It's a stark difference
(02/10 12:18:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: to those of us who had seen it before, it was blindingly blue!
(02/10 12:18:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: We were confused,
(02/10 12:18:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: I myself was wondering where the ROOF had went!
(02/10 12:18:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: But still,
(02/10 12:18:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: We took to it like flies to water,
(02/10 12:18:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: Watchers would become one of THE places to hang out at durring the next few months,
(02/10 12:19:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: And quite a few major events took place there,
(02/10 12:19:10) Fil: flies to water?
(02/10 12:19:17) radioflux: :)
(02/10 12:19:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sugar water. :P
(02/10 12:19:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: Anyways,
(02/10 12:19:33) Fil: oh....that's different then :)
(02/10 12:19:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: Kodama spoke to explorers briefly about the last month,
(02/10 12:20:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: They confirmed our suspicions,
(02/10 12:20:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: The bahro *had* killed Wheely, and he believed that the Bahro on the side of "Destruction" had rigged the whole event.
(02/10 12:20:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: Laxmon also told us that the DRC had visited Noloben, the age referred to by that Murderous bahro,
(02/10 12:21:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC at one point had met a D'ni man on that age,
(02/10 12:21:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: Who we now believe to have been the inspiration of the character Esher in the game Myst V
(02/10 12:21:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: But that man was gone now.
(02/10 12:21:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: Which fit the story of the game,
(02/10 12:21:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: Evidently, the game was based off of some degree of truth,
(02/10 12:21:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: At the time though, we didn't know what.
(02/10 12:22:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: The most important visit during this time was the DRC's funding source,
(02/10 12:22:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: Cate Alexander
(02/10 12:22:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: She appeared in Watcher's, and told us that since Engberg was still missing,
(02/10 12:22:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: She would be taking his 'seat' in voting matters.
(02/10 12:23:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: As she already had one as funding source,
(02/10 12:23:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: This....proved to be not a wise announcement.
(02/10 12:23:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: Many explorers were upset by this,
(02/10 12:23:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: Particularly those that were upset by the DRC's 'activation' of the Zero,
(02/10 12:24:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: Carl Palmner commented that he didn't see much damage by this move,
(02/10 12:24:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was fairly obvious that Cate was running the show by then.
(02/10 12:24:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: Of note, and of only slightly less importance,
(02/10 12:24:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: Was Sharper's visit to Uru Obsession,
(02/10 12:24:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: He....
(02/10 12:24:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: He announced that he was going to go to Noloben
(02/10 12:25:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: And he was going to hunt down the bahro that had killed wheely.
(02/10 12:25:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: "An eye for an eye makes the world blind~"
(02/10 12:25:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was protested,
[KI LATTICE CRASH]
(02/10 12:32:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: Okay
(02/10 12:32:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: Its safe to say we all crashed
(02/10 12:33:04) radioflux: quite
(02/10 12:33:08) Boywhith: it seemed so...
(02/10 12:33:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: Net6's all around?
(02/10 12:33:22) Pizza King II: me
(02/10 12:33:23) Musica2: yep
(02/10 12:33:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: Heh
(02/10 12:33:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: Server hiccup
(02/10 12:33:30) Midna: yeah
(02/10 12:33:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: ^U^
(02/10 12:34:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: :)
(02/10 12:34:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: So where was I again??
(02/10 12:35:09) Pizza King II: ok
(02/10 12:35:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: Appropriate music on donahoo's broadcase lol
(02/10 12:35:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: Heheh
(02/10 12:35:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: Okay well,
(02/10 12:35:35) Musica2: "I will Survive"
(02/10 12:35:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: I'll pick up with the release of Er'cana!!
(02/10 12:35:53) Olrick140: how many peaple have been throwed to surface ?
(02/10 12:36:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: everyone it seems olrick
(02/10 12:36:02) [X]: all
(02/10 12:36:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: Server hicupped,
(02/10 12:36:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: just like the GZ crash, LOL
(02/10 12:36:28) [X]: indeed!!
(02/10 12:36:35) T-Nav: I got net 6'd two minutes after I first logged in. You can blame me if ya want
(02/10 12:36:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: Let's hope it stays working for X's soccer game after this...
(02/10 12:36:45) radioflux: *soundtrack to 'Crash' playing*
(02/10 12:36:50) [X]: no bot ..no game
(02/10 12:36:50) Pizza King II: i need to go there
(02/10 12:36:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: Nah, T-Nav, just the KI server hiccupping ;)
(02/10 12:36:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: Right well
(02/10 12:37:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: Er'cana was released!!
(02/10 12:37:17) Pizza King II: :)
(02/10 12:37:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: Cate came to watchers and put the book right on one of the stands
(02/10 12:37:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: Many of us, as I'd said previously,
(02/10 12:37:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: Had been to watchers- and Also Er'cana by extension~
(02/10 12:37:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: Er'cana was relatively unchanged from how we'd last seen it,
(02/10 12:38:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: Only the shell cloths were green now, instead of blue,
(02/10 12:38:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: And an engraving of the star fissure was removed,
(02/10 12:38:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: The ovens for pellets were also better calibrated
(02/10 12:38:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: So as to better help light the lake.
(02/10 12:39:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: A new light.
(02/10 12:39:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: And that's where things went bad.
(02/10 12:39:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: those explorers upset by the GZ activation?
(02/10 12:39:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: They just expected the DRC to just "Drop a super pellet"!
(02/10 12:39:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: And "Poof~" they claimed
(02/10 12:39:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: It would be lit.
(02/10 12:40:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: they kept saying it didn't matter if we helped light the lake
(02/10 12:40:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: And anyone those explorers caught actually doing it of their own free will they scolded!
(02/10 12:40:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: Quite rudely, too,
(02/10 12:40:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: the DRC were hoping for explorers to take the months and years they told us it took to light the lake,
(02/10 12:40:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: they were hoping for us to do it,
(02/10 12:41:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: So they could calibrate and figure out what kind of pellets would work the best!
(02/10 12:41:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: To that end, they put a lake light meter down at the docks in the City.
(02/10 12:41:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: Explorers...had the wrong sense of scale with the pellets,
(02/10 12:42:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: It didn't help that those angry explorers were actively keeping people form helping.
(02/10 12:42:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was around this release, however,
(02/10 12:42:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: That the memorial imager was placed in Kahlo Pub,
(02/10 12:42:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: Marie had ensured that not only had those who had died in-cavern were on it,
(02/10 12:43:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: But so were the names of the explorers who had once contributed to the restoration,
(02/10 12:43:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: On that memorial was once the name of Phil Henderson,
(02/10 12:43:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: For reasons we'll cover later on,
(02/10 12:43:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: His name was removed,
(02/10 12:43:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: But still,
(02/10 12:44:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was a nice thought to see so many names on there,
(02/10 12:44:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: A memorial to those who had died before they could return to D'ni
(02/10 12:44:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: An important event happend soon after this,
(02/10 12:44:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC actively began searching for explorer "Reteltee"
(02/10 12:44:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: Whose name means "The Guilds" in D'ni,
(02/10 12:45:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: Reteltee was interested in restoring the D'ni guilds to the cavern,
(02/10 12:45:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: And as it so happened, the DRC wanted the same too.
(02/10 12:45:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: Marie and Cate located Reteltee, and invited him to discuss this with them.
(02/10 12:45:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: They settled on five new guilds,
(02/10 12:45:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: Maintainers, Writers, Cartographers, Messengers, and Greeters
(02/10 12:46:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: But at the time,
(02/10 12:46:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: We had no clue those five had been chosen.
(02/10 12:46:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: Whoops
(02/10 12:46:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: I didn't have autoshout on
(02/10 12:46:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: Can everyone hear me ok now?
(02/10 12:46:34) Ainia nods
(02/10 12:46:38) *MagicSang*: :) yes Cal
(02/10 12:46:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: Okay,
(02/10 12:46:40) DbeMagic nods her head
(02/10 12:46:43) radioflux: wht?
(02/10 12:46:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: So, yeah,
(02/10 12:46:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: Right.
(02/10 12:46:57) Boywhith: yeah, Calum.
(02/10 12:47:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: Reteltee was given the status of "Official Guild Representative"
(02/10 12:47:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: And....some explorers didn't think it was a good idea to bring the guild back.
(02/10 12:47:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: We were all still torn as a community then.
(02/10 12:47:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: even in personal dealings with Sharper's "Trip"
(02/10 12:48:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: explorers were torn,
(02/10 12:48:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: Some went to confront him on it,
(02/10 12:48:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: Others supported him
(02/10 12:48:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: But in the end,
(02/10 12:48:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC caught wind of the explorers' protests to his action
(02/10 12:49:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: so they told Sharper that if he WENT to Noloben
(02/10 12:49:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: He was NOT to kill a bahro,
(02/10 12:49:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: He was angry at the explorers who had 'tattled' on him,
(02/10 12:49:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: and with the insistence that he WOULD kill a bahro,
(02/10 12:49:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: we lost track of him for a whole month.
(02/10 12:50:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: Until that time we finally understood what was going on with the bahro.
(02/10 12:50:17) DimensionTravelerCalum bows
(02/10 12:50:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: With this HN over with, :)
(02/10 12:50:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: I hope to see you all again next week.
(02/10 12:50:28) *MagicSang* claps her hands

(02/10 12:50:31) Boywhith: -clap

(02/10 12:51:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: But it'll be online
(02/10 12:51:18) Ainia: And was it Negilahn or Noloben??
(02/10 12:51:21) Heritage Night Intercom buzzes off!
(02/10 12:51:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: Noloben
(02/10 12:51:24) face in puddle man.: k

(03/03 12:05:14) Musica2: WB
(03/03 12:05:32) LAHI: and mechanical problems in the cavern have delayed us.
(03/03 12:05:45) LAHI: For two weeks in a row!
(03/03 12:06:07) LAHI: Kinda like Bob the Dalek?
(03/03 12:06:24) LAHI: (dock meter)
(03/03 12:06:38) Yark Dozer: eggs!
(03/03 12:06:39) LAHI: So keep your fingers crossed.
(03/03 12:07:06) LAHI: Let's resume learning about D'ni and the Cavern.
(03/03 12:07:19) LAHI: First, some headlines
(03/03 12:07:48) LAHI: Sharper returns from Noloben and is acting strange.(03/03 12:08:22) LAHI: Sharper visits Watchers Pub and talks about Noloben and the Bahro Civil War.
(03/03 12:08:44) LAHI: Bahro activity in the City spikes
(03/03 12:09:11) LAHI: Phil is seen in the City rooftop surrounded by Bahro
(03/03 12:09:25) LAHI: Phil and Sharper talk...
(03/03 12:09:39) LAHI: Phil warns of the coming War
(03/03 12:10:11) LAHI: Today's presentation covers the 4th week of the DRC's restoration project,
(03/03 12:10:26) Criswell: War? where? why? who? and other words that start with W
(03/03 12:10:26) LAHI: known as "Familiar Voices"
(03/03 12:10:47) LAHI: On the last week that we were able to meet here,
(03/03 12:11:13) LAHI: A dock meter know as "Bob the Dalek"was malfunctioning again.
(03/03 12:11:34) LAHI: Sadly, Victor Laxman came to remove it...
(03/03 12:11:42) LAHI: for technical reasons.
(03/03 12:12:01) LAHI: A lot of things were happening,
(03/03 12:12:14) LAHI: but nothing too exciting.
(03/03 12:12:47) LAHI: Nick White announced that he had a girl friend on the surface...
(03/03 12:13:07) LAHI: and Sharper had returned from Noloben.
(03/03 12:13:20) LAHI: Sharper had killed a Bahro.
(03/03 12:13:31) LAHI: Shot it dead!
(03/03 12:13:58) LAHI: Some of us wondered if w would be targeted in retaliation.
(03/03 12:14:16) LAHI: This would be answered in the coming month.
(03/03 12:14:43) LAHI: cate Alexander visited the Guild of Greeters neighborhood.
(03/03 12:14:56) LAHI: (That's for you vid.)
(03/03 12:15:15) LAHI: Looking for Sharper, as were many others.
(03/03 12:15:46) Magic Tom leans right
(03/03 12:15:48) LAHI: Someone gave him a message, as he showed up in Watchers later that day.
(03/03 12:16:07) LAHI: He commented that he has studied the bahro.
(03/03 12:16:23) LAHI: And there were two or more sides.
(03/03 12:16:48) LAHI: He quipped, "It's not like they have red or blue eyes."
(03/03 12:17:07) LAHI: But he insisted that he had killed a bad bahro.
(03/03 12:17:32) LAHI: Many of us present feared we were all going to be killed.
(03/03 12:18:12) LAHI: Later, Laxman visited a neighborhood announcing that he had rigged the imager.
(03/03 12:18:50) LAHI: to display pellet scores for friendly competition between neighborhoods.
(03/03 12:19:12) LAHI: Even with this excitement, everyone was extremely worried.
(03/03 12:19:31) LAHI: Later, Sharper were in Watchers again.
(03/03 12:19:50) LAHI: Sharper talked about his Noloben trip when...
(03/03 12:20:08) LAHI: Sharper yelled, "Get Back!"
(03/03 12:20:31) LAHI: Two Bahro linked in right on top of the imager!
(03/03 12:20:56) LAHI: They had the corpse of Sharper's dead Bahro with them.
(03/03 12:21:25) LAHI: There was a lot of panic but some were just curious.
(03/03 12:21:50) LAHI: "It has blue eyes!" "You've killed a good one!"
(03/03 12:22:14) LAHI: Because of Sharper,
(03/03 12:22:50) LAHI: Some of us thought the two sides were know by the color of their eyes.
(03/03 12:23:05) LAHI: But it was true. It was a good one.
(03/03 12:23:24) LAHI: While we didn't know right away,
(03/03 12:23:35) LAHI: This is what happened.
(03/03 12:24:00) LAHI: Sharper locked his sights on a bad Bahro and fired...
(03/03 12:24:32) LAHI: But this Bahro, a good one, had jumped into the line of fire.
(03/03 12:24:54) LAHI: The bahro bringing the body to the explorers,
(03/03 12:25:22) LAHI: shocked Sharper and he and Nick linked away.
(03/03 12:25:42) LAHI: His instruction was "Don't touch it!"
(03/03 12:26:04) LAHI: The Bahro stayed, crying...for their lost brother.(03/03 12:26:33) LAHI: Think abou it, this was one of the few times we would ever see a Bahro,
(03/03 12:26:45) LAHI: up close, right on the imager.
(03/03 12:27:05) LAHI: A cuious explorer tried to touch one.
(03/03 12:27:27) LAHI: It screamed at him before leaving Watchers,
(03/03 12:27:32) LAHI: body and all.
(03/03 12:27:51) LAHI: Then it started... They wr=ere everywhere,
(03/03 12:28:09) LAHI: inthe City, Neighborhoods and Reltos.
(03/03 12:28:21) LAHI: Where could we go?
(03/03 12:28:42) LAHI: How could we be safe from creatures that can link at will?
(03/03 12:28:57) LAHI: The DRC sent out some KI mail.
(03/03 12:29:15) LAHI: Warning us not to touch or go near a Bahro.
(03/03 12:29:40) LAHI: The other KI mail advertised Kirel.
(03/03 12:30:05) LAHI: Announcing that this was a step towards reviving the Guilds.
(03/03 12:30:27) LAHI: We could make our support known by choosing a Guild shirt.
(03/03 12:30:57) LAHI: On day three, Bahro were everywhere.
(03/03 12:31:24) LAHI: In the Reltos, Private areas, Public areas, anywhere imaginable.
(03/03 12:31:50) Yark Dozer: even in the rest rooms?
(03/03 12:31:55) LAHI: In Kirel, a young Bahro played a game of tag...
(03/03 12:32:00) To Yark Dozer: yes, even the rest rooms.
(03/03 12:32:08) LAHI: with DTC one of those there to see it.
(03/03 12:32:32) LAHI: Appaering and disappearing. It was chaotic.
(03/03 12:32:53) LAHI: Linking around like it was playing with Cal and us.
(03/03 12:33:16) LAHI: We all formed a circle and sat down.
(03/03 12:33:50) LAHI: It soon got bored and left after that.
(03/03 12:34:16) LAHI: Sharper announced that he was going back to Noloben.
(03/03 12:34:42) LAHI: A new Relto page was found and members of the DRC came around.
(03/03 12:35:00) LAHI: But nothing as exciting as meeting a Bahro!
(03/03 12:35:33) LAHI: On day four, Jalak was released, including the 8th sparklie.
(03/03 12:36:05) LAHI: Now rewards, no puzzles, but we still found enjoyment with the new release.
(03/03 12:36:32) LAHI: Sharper showed up in Watchers, wearing a Yeesha T-Shirt.
(03/03 12:37:02) LAHI: He said he wasn't returning to Noloben again.
(03/03 12:37:33) LAHI: cate announced Reteltee, as the DRC's Guild Advisor.
(03/03 12:37:49) LAHI: Just a lot of boring Guild stuff.
(03/03 12:38:12) LAHI: Remember the imager in the Kaylo Pub?
(03/03 12:38:39) LAHI: One name on it is important...
(03/03 12:38:52) LAHI: Because he wasn't dead!
(03/03 12:39:20) LAHI: He was seen standing on top of a roof, surrounded by Bahro.
(03/03 12:39:44) LAHI: In 2004, Phil "phend" Henderson was in a collapse,
(03/03 12:39:55) LAHI: where a wall fell on him.
(03/03 12:40:14) LAHI: We all thought he was dead.
(03/03 12:40:23) LAHI: But he was alive.
(03/03 12:40:41) LAHI: He was saved by a Bahro when the wall collapsed.
(03/03 12:40:53) LAHI: He had spent time with the bahro.
(03/03 12:41:11) LAHI: His mental state was worse than before.
(03/03 12:41:22) LAHI: He spoke in riddles.
(03/03 12:41:35) LAHI: He told of Bahro everywhere.
(03/03 12:41:55) LAHI: The sky blackened by their wings.
(03/03 12:42:04) LAHI: Free to do anything!
(03/03 12:42:25) LAHI: Sharper showed up, surprised that Phil was alive.
(03/03 12:42:54) LAHI: His conscience made him apologize for taking Phil's relto book.
(03/03 12:43:21) LAHI: and asking about the bahro and why one had killed Wheeley.
(03/03 12:43:39) LAHI: Phil said "This was only the beginning".
(03/03 12:44:02) LAHI: He said a war had started when the bahro had been freed...
(03/03 12:44:13) LAHI: and it was escalating.
(03/03 12:44:39) LAHI: Sharper said the bahro had jumped in front of his gun.
(03/03 12:45:07) LAHI: Phil replied that the Bahro had protected us all...
(03/03 12:45:21) LAHI: "from making a mistake."
(03/03 12:45:49) LAHI: The side that Sharper had almost ignited a war with,
(03/03 12:45:57) LAHI: has chosen evil.
(03/03 12:46:21) LAHI: Sharper confirmed that he wasn't going to Noloben
(03/03 12:46:41) LAHI: because he feared that they were coming to D'ni.
(03/03 12:46:59) LAHI: Phil offered a cryptic warning
(03/03 12:47:17) LAHI: "He is coming, HE will return."
(03/03 12:47:27) LAHI: Who was "He"?
(03/03 12:47:57) LAHI: Did we cause this bu moving the journey pillars?
(03/03 12:48:14) LAHI: Would the Bahro kill all of us?
(03/03 12:48:36) LAHI: Remember the dream of Yeesha?
(03/03 12:49:02) LAHI: "They Come" and He Comes",
(03/03 12:49:14) LAHI: This concerned us all.
(03/03 12:49:31) LAHI: The "They" obviously was the Bahro,
(03/03 12:49:44) LAHI: But who was the "He?"
(03/03 12:49:56) LAHI: We wouldn't know for a while.
(03/03 12:50:13) LAHI: This was a warning. Weird and bizarre.
(03/03 12:50:26) LAHI: A storm was coming.
(03/03 12:50:49) LAHI: Death and destruction from the twisted side of the Bahro.
(03/03 12:51:00) LAHI: Who was HE?
(03/03 12:51:26) LAHI: Many of us knew that Yeesha herself would come
(03/03 12:51:45) LAHI: Until they both come, we would never know.
(03/03 12:51:56) LAHI: That was the way the week ended.

Pushing HN back again due to the patcher troubles. Also- LAHI was tied up this week and couldn't come, so.... It's No big deal!
