(01/25 17:59:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: Right, will the owner of a 54 chevy Tractor please go to the parking lot?
(01/25 17:59:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: Your headlights are on.
(01/25 17:59:57) DaVinci: dang
(01/25 18:00:05) Lynnutte: Crap! I forgot about it. Thanks Cal.

(01/25 18:00:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: hehe…right… >_<;;
(01/25 18:00:20) Lynnutte starts to laugh
(01/25 18:00:22) DaVinci: wait I didn’t drive the tactor
(01/25 18:00:25) DaVinci says DOH!
(01/25 18:00:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: okay! moving on

(01/25 18:01:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: right then! and finally,
(01/25 18:01:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: refreshments are in the fountain
(01/25 18:01:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: should you get thirsty
(01/25 18:01:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: just find your fav drink and open up! :)
(01/25 18:01:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: Okay then
(01/25 18:01:53) hoodedwarbler12: IN the fountain? Isn’t that water from a lake?
(01/25 18:01:56) Mireena: lol
(01/25 18:02:05) Mireena: its filtered
(01/25 18:02:05) Lynnutte: Filtered water
(01/25 18:02:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: we start…or rather, one more announcement
(01/25 18:02:10) hoodedwarbler12: Oh good.
(01/25 18:02:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: Yeah,
(01/25 18:02:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: The fountain water is actually anti-freeze-ice,
(01/25 18:02:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: Not lake water
(01/25 18:02:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: You don’t want to drink it,
(01/25 18:02:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: But,
(01/25 18:02:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: It makes for great drink cooling!
(01/25 18:02:53) Mireena: huge cooler
(01/25 18:02:58) DoveArrow: It’ll give you a nice buzz… just before your kidneys fail.
(01/25 18:03:00) Mireena: Shorah, sunset
(01/25 18:03:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: Okay then
(01/25 18:03:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: For those of us who were just in Ae’gura
(01/25 18:03:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: You will have noticed the bahro there, swarming the arch
(01/25 18:03:41) hoodedwarbler12: They sounded mad
(01/25 18:03:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: The last time I saw something like that,
(01/25 18:03:48) Lynnutte nods
(01/25 18:03:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: Was nearly three years ago now
(01/25 18:03:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: In the time of the last URU
(01/25 18:04:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: We knew what those bahro wanted, but, we don’t know what these ones want
(01/25 18:04:16) Dra: hey
(01/25 18:04:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: Except, maybe
(01/25 18:04:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: To pass along a message
(01/25 18:04:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: Nothing is normal.
(01/25 18:04:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: You see,
(01/25 18:04:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: normal, as the dictionary says
(01/25 18:04:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: Is defined as “Perpindicular to a Tangent”
(01/25 18:05:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: You may wonder, then
(01/25 18:05:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: What is Normal?
(01/25 18:05:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: There are two ways to interpret it.
(01/25 18:05:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: One is that, perhaps, nothing is always the same
(01/25 18:05:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: That is what I will go with, yes.
(01/25 18:06:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: December 19th,
(01/25 18:06:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: 2007.
(01/25 18:06:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC had returned to the cavern,
(01/25 18:06:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: And brought with them new funding, in the form of Cate Alexander,
(01/25 18:06:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: This period was known as “D’mala”
(01/25 18:07:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: And it was about to end with a scream
(01/25 18:07:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: A very, loud, powerful scream
(01/25 18:07:19) DaVinci: booo Cate
(01/25 18:07:23) Dra: haha
(01/25 18:07:34) DimensionTravelerCalum rolls his eyes
(01/25 18:07:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: anyways, you all might know what this scream was
(01/25 18:07:54) DoveArrow: Nope.
(01/25 18:07:56) DoveArrow: Can’t say I do.
(01/25 18:07:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: Considering, that we’ve been hearing lots of similar ones this past week
(01/25 18:08:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was a bahro.
(01/25 18:08:07) hoodedwarbler12: It broke a wall in Gahreesen.
(01/25 18:08:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: Screaming so loud and powerful,
(01/25 18:08:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: That it was heard across ALL Ages
(01/25 18:08:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: Even on the surface
(01/25 18:08:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: It didn’t matter where you were,
(01/25 18:08:40) hoodedwarbler12: that’s loud
(01/25 18:08:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: Kemo, Relto, Ae’gura,
(01/25 18:08:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was heard nonetheless
(01/25 18:08:48) DoveArrow: That’s creepy.
(01/25 18:08:51) Dra: very
(01/25 18:08:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: And it’s effects were still long lasting
(01/25 18:08:54) Dra: you should see the video
(01/25 18:09:01) Mireena: it was awesome
(01/25 18:09:03) Jayim Duinara: That must have been one powerful Bahro.
(01/25 18:09:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: You see,
(01/25 18:09:08) Dra: or several Bahro :)
(01/25 18:09:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC were holding a town hall meeting,
(01/25 18:09:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: Right here in this very room, I suspect
(01/25 18:09:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: Anyways, it was rather sudden
(01/25 18:09:42) DoveArrow laughs
(01/25 18:09:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: Laxman opened his ki, recieving a KI mail from someone.
(01/25 18:10:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: He barely managed “What the…?”
(01/25 18:10:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: Before the scream errupted
(01/25 18:10:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: And, with out a single second to react,
(01/25 18:10:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: Everyone was linked
(01/25 18:10:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: Out of their ages, even off of the surface
(01/25 18:10:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: Right to a Relto.
(01/25 18:10:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: December 19th, 2007, the day of the Great Scream
(01/25 18:11:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: Nothing would ever be the same again
(01/25 18:11:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: Normality, as it were, was shattered.
(01/25 18:11:18) Jayim Duinara: To a specific Relto? or to their own Relto?
(01/25 18:11:20) Dra: empty Relto, that is?
(01/25 18:11:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: To their own relto,
(01/25 18:11:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: Yes,
(01/25 18:11:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: Empty of all rewards,
(01/25 18:11:31) hoodedwarbler12: oh
(01/25 18:11:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: Relto wasn’t the only thing affected either,
(01/25 18:11:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: All the ages were reset
(01/25 18:11:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: As if we had never solved them
(01/25 18:11:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: Teledahn? Powerless
(01/25 18:11:56) hoodedwarbler12: *sniff*
(01/25 18:12:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: Gira? Lightless.
(01/25 18:12:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: Kadish? Locked once more.
(01/25 18:12:14) Jayim Duinara: Ouch. That would not have been pleasant.
(01/25 18:12:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: Yes, it was rather annoying.
(01/25 18:12:22) hoodedwarbler12: hmm-mmm
(01/25 18:12:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: But, it was something,
(01/25 18:12:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: And it would become our new “Normal”
(01/25 18:13:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: Ae’gura, over the following months,
(01/25 18:13:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: Would be restored to it’s former, pre-scream glory,
(01/25 18:13:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: But, it too, was changed
(01/25 18:13:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: Rocks had fallen, buildings weakened
(01/25 18:13:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: Earth quakes had taken out the bridge
(01/25 18:14:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: Again.
(01/25 18:14:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: the DRC were concerned,
(01/25 18:14:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: Why had a scream done so much damage?
(01/25 18:14:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: We would never find out, I suspect.
(01/25 18:15:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was a month after the scream that The DRC tried to restore normality of a new kind.
(01/25 18:15:08) Dra: (the screams, however, happen when Bahro use their powers. might be that)
(01/25 18:15:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: They released a new age, Eder Delin.
(01/25 18:15:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: A beautiful garden of trees and and plants
(01/25 18:15:45) hoodedwarbler12: And snow
(01/25 18:15:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: It had already been delayed twice already,
(01/25 18:15:49) Jayim Duinara: It is beautiful.
(01/25 18:15:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: Once because of a massive freak weather storm,
(01/25 18:16:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: The other, well, humorously enough,
(01/25 18:16:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: Due to a distribution error
(01/25 18:16:24) hoodedwarbler12: That’ll do it
(01/25 18:16:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: Delin and Tsogal had been released at the same time at once,
(01/25 18:16:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: Quite the mishap
(01/25 18:16:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: Both books were recalled,
(01/25 18:16:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: And it wasn’t later in the day that Delin officially was released.
(01/25 18:17:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: And then, We found ourselves faced with a challenge right off the bat.
(01/25 18:17:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: A puzzle unlike any we had seen before,
(01/25 18:17:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: Seven cloths, one door,
(01/25 18:17:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: And yet, they didn’t react the way we expected.
(01/25 18:17:49) Jayim Duinara: I’ve been trying to figure that one out at the moment.
(01/25 18:17:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: This was the first of many “Ring” Challenges that came about
(01/25 18:18:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: Tsogal was tied to this puzzle as well,
(01/25 18:18:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: Due to those lucky enough to link through durring the time it was available
(01/25 18:18:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: We saw the same cloths, and we knew the ages were linked
(01/25 18:18:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: But we didn’t know how.
(01/25 18:18:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: The puzzle was soon figured out,
(01/25 18:18:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: And we all claimed out first ring wedge,
(01/25 18:19:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: i still don’t know what they do.
(01/25 18:19:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: In any case,
(01/25 18:19:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: As Carl said in the first HN last year
(01/25 18:19:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: We were rather, dis-connected
(01/25 18:20:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: Just look at the Liason fiasco
(01/25 18:20:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: And this puzzle was to teach us Unity
(01/25 18:20:15) Lynnutte nods
(01/25 18:20:25) DoveArrow: Oh yeah. Wait… the what now?
(01/25 18:20:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: Liasons, I’m not going to go into it, but it was a HUGE mess.
(01/25 18:20:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: bluh bluh.
(01/25 18:21:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: I think, now
(01/25 18:21:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: This will be a good time to move to our Tsogal

{Linking Shinanigans Occur, invloving atleast TWO avvies linking to an empty Tsogal}

(01/25 18:25:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: Righty,
(01/25 18:25:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: don’t look at the sun anyone
(01/25 18:25:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: It’s rather bright
(01/25 18:25:26) DaVinci: ahhh! I am blind!!!!
(01/25 18:25:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: Okay, so…
(01/25 18:25:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: Tsogal here was released proper
(01/25 18:25:38) hoodedwarbler12: Is that the real sun? I though we were under the ground
(01/25 18:25:47) Dra: we are, but only in D’ni
(01/25 18:25:47) hoodedwarbler12: Ah, shade
(01/25 18:25:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: We knew the puzzle for this, via Delin,
(01/25 18:25:55) Dra: these Ages are different universes
(01/25 18:25:57) Jayim Duinara: Different world now.
(01/25 18:26:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: And our second ring wedge was taken
(01/25 18:26:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: One second, seems someone else got the wrong tsogal
(01/25 18:26:37) Dra: should we do a small demo until that is sorted?
(01/25 18:26:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: Right, then
(01/25 18:26:41) Dra: or at least explain it?
(01/25 18:26:48) DoveArrow: Please.
(01/25 18:26:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: Okay okay
(01/25 18:26:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: I’ll explain the puzzle

{Puzzle explanations Later}

(01/25 18:29:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: The next ring challenge was began shortly after the release of tsogal
(01/25 18:29:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: With the release of the Pod of Negilahn,
(01/25 18:29:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was a jungle,
(01/25 18:29:42) Jayim Duinara: Those pods are creepy.
(01/25 18:29:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: And supposedly filled with wildlife
(01/25 18:29:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: But, upon arrival,
(01/25 18:29:49) hoodedwarbler12: I saw a bird
(01/25 18:29:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: We and the DRC noticed a sever lack of animal life.
(01/25 18:30:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: And they were concerned
(01/25 18:30:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: Not a DAY before the release,
(01/25 18:30:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: The population around the pod had been normal
(01/25 18:30:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: Why the sudden change?
(01/25 18:30:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: To answer that, the DRC hired Douglas Sharper
(01/25 18:30:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: To investigate
(01/25 18:30:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: He went out to explore,
(01/25 18:31:00) hoodedwarbler12: I’ve seen videos of bahro killing pod anima;s
(01/25 18:31:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: And, near the pods…
(01/25 18:31:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: Right… um…
(01/25 18:31:21) hoodedwarbler12: sorry
(01/25 18:31:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: That’s not really possible, because I don’t think anyone would want to see what happened to those poor creatures
(01/25 18:31:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: See
(01/25 18:31:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sharper found a body
(01/25 18:31:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: Shredded
(01/25 18:31:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: To bits
(01/25 18:31:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: Like minced meat.
(01/25 18:31:44) hoodedwarbler12: Ugh
(01/25 18:31:46) May Locks: Oh my
(01/25 18:31:48) Nocpo: seriously?
(01/25 18:31:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: Enough to make anyone look away in horror
(01/25 18:31:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: I am not joking.
(01/25 18:32:00) hoodedwarbler12: Ugh again
(01/25 18:32:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: Some creatures,
(01/25 18:32:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: Like the Urwin,
(01/25 18:32:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: Had their heads, literally exploded right off of their bodies,
(01/25 18:32:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: This… Predator was so fast
(01/25 18:32:23) hoodedwarbler12: ugh a third time
(01/25 18:32:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: And the DRc were worried
(01/25 18:32:33) Lynnutte: Getting kinda graphic there aren’t you Cal?
(AN: Sorry Lynn!}
(01/25 18:32:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: WE were worried.
(01/25 18:32:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: A predator that had spontaneously been introduced into the environment
(01/25 18:32:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: And what was worse?
(01/25 18:32:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was killing for the sake of killing
(01/25 18:33:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: Besides mutilations,
(01/25 18:33:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: The bodies were perfectly intact,
(01/25 18:33:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: Nothing had been taken
(01/25 18:33:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: This… thing… was killing them for Sport.
(01/25 18:33:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: An so, time started to move on,
(01/25 18:33:39) hoodedwarbler12 is overwhelmed with confusion.
(01/25 18:33:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: And, despite our panic,
(01/25 18:33:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: A new puzzle revealed itself.
(01/25 18:33:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: Literally involving time itself.
(01/25 18:34:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: A shimmering portal of light appeared in negilahn,
(01/25 18:34:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: Across all the instances,
(01/25 18:34:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: noone knew what triggered it,
(01/25 18:34:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: or how to controll it’s movements,
(01/25 18:34:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: All that was known, however, was that it lasted only a minute.
(01/25 18:34:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: So, our normal for this time became trying to figure out what the puzzle was,
(01/25 18:35:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: And what the predator wanted.
(01/25 18:35:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: Dereno, the ice pod, was released next
(01/25 18:35:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: And the puzzle began to form in our heads,
(01/25 18:35:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: A second portal began to form in the pod,
(01/25 18:35:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: Not a short time after the first in Negilahn
(01/25 18:36:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: And we realized, there was a noticble gap of time between them
(01/25 18:36:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: Dereno, you’ll notice, is at the north pole of it’s planet
(01/25 18:36:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: Negilahn, is somewhere near it’s world’s equaitor
(01/25 18:36:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: We could not figure out the puzzle,
(01/25 18:36:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: And then,
(01/25 18:36:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: A map was given
(01/25 18:36:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: It showed a world,
(01/25 18:37:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: A planet,
(01/25 18:37:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: With Pods on it;s surface
(01/25 18:37:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC explained that the D’ni had written a Museum world,
(01/25 18:37:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: For these pods,
(01/25 18:37:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: And,
(01/25 18:37:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: Believe it or not,
(01/25 18:37:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: Negilahn and Dereno were on the same planet,
(01/25 18:38:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: The third pod, of the desert, Payiferen, was released next
(01/25 18:38:03) Jayim Duinara: What was the name of the Museum world?
(01/25 18:38:08) Dra: no idea
(01/25 18:38:17) Dra: we just know the pod names
(01/25 18:38:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: Occasionally, we call it “The great Pod planet” in D’ni.
(01/25 18:38:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: ^_^;
(01/25 18:38:35) Dra: lol, do we?
(01/25 18:38:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: Well, that’s what it is,
(01/25 18:38:45) Jayim Duinara: Makes sense. =)
(01/25 18:38:46) Dra: yeah
(01/25 18:38:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: Anyways,
(01/25 18:38:50) Dra: but i never heard anyone say that :P
(01/25 18:38:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: Payiferen was released,
(01/25 18:38:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: And our Key was revealed
(01/25 18:39:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: i’ll skim on the specifics,
(01/25 18:39:13) Lynnutte: Me neither Dra, but it’s not really important right now.
(01/25 18:39:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: But, one glance at the floor is all you need to know.
(01/25 18:39:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: That is the key for it,
(01/25 18:39:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: That,
(01/25 18:39:31) DimensionTravelerCalum points up
(01/25 18:39:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: And the sun
(01/25 18:39:42) DoveArrow: Gah!
(01/25 18:39:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sorry! >_<;;
(01/25 18:39:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: Didn’t I say not to look up?
(01/25 18:40:01) Mireena: lol
(01/25 18:40:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: Erm, right, before we go blind from sun gazing,
(01/25 18:40:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: Let’s head back to the bevin now
{LINKING OCCURS}
(01/25 18:42:28) Jayim Duinara: Gah, I have got to learn to keep my mouth shut. I’m way too disruptive during things like this.
(01/25 18:42:39) Heritage Night: it’s no problem
(01/25 18:42:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: Link in pile up >_<;;
(01/25 18:42:52) Mireena: lol
(01/25 18:43:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: welcome back everyone!
(01/25 18:43:52) DimensionTravelerCalum peers out over the audience
(01/25 18:44:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: ah, I see some seats open in the middle row…!
(01/25 18:44:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: so, then,
(01/25 18:45:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: as the mystery with the predator deepend, our concern grew
(01/25 18:45:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: you see,
(01/25 18:45:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: it wasn’t just Negilahn
(01/25 18:45:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: but Dereno, and Payiferen as well
(01/25 18:45:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: Whole populations of animals around the pods, just suddenly… dead
(01/25 18:45:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sharper brought in Nick White, an old friend of his durring the Early days,
(01/25 18:45:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: To help him investigate
(01/25 18:46:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: Ah, Nick Nick nick.
(01/25 18:46:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: *shakes his head*
(01/25 18:46:09) Dra: early: 2003
(01/25 18:46:10) Lynnutte: nick LOVED the ladies. lol
(01/25 18:46:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: Nick white was, yeah, Lynn,
(01/25 18:46:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: that.
(01/25 18:46:27) Lynnutte giggles
(01/25 18:46:27) Dra: he also liked talking nonsense
(01/25 18:46:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: Nick was what you’d call… a “Skirt Chaser”
(01/25 18:46:33) Dra: x_x
(01/25 18:46:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: and, well,
(01/25 18:46:42) Mireena: lol
(01/25 18:46:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: he was all sorts of trouble
(01/25 18:46:45) Lynnutte: Lol
(01/25 18:46:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: at the time,
(01/25 18:46:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: there was a group
(01/25 18:46:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: called the “Anti DRC Movement”
(01/25 18:47:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: the ADM wanted nothing more than to know what was going on,
(01/25 18:47:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: and, if I recall,
(01/25 18:47:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: were rather concerned about the predator,
(01/25 18:47:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: their leader was named Sydney, and, as you might guess, Nick was all over her. (/lame pun)
(01/25 18:47:58) Lynnutte rolls her eyes at the thought of Sydney
(01/25 18:48:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: it was,well, a huge mess (Bluh Bluh)
(01/25 18:48:16) Lynnutte: Understatement
(01/25 18:48:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sydney pryed Nick for all the info she could get out of him about the DRC
(01/25 18:48:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: and, for all his efforts,
(01/25 18:48:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: Nick got fired.
(01/25 18:48:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: Once things got heated enough.
(01/25 18:49:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was a truly horrible mess.
(01/25 18:49:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: That’s all that can be said about it.
(01/25 18:49:22) Switters: than say no more
(01/25 18:49:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: So, yeah, While Nick was getting a pink slip,
(01/25 18:49:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: The fourth,
(01/25 18:49:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: And final,
(01/25 18:49:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: Pod was released: Tetsonot.
(01/25 18:49:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: Oh Tetsonot.
(01/25 18:49:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: How we hated thee.
(01/25 18:49:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: And still do,
(01/25 18:49:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: How many of you have been there?
(01/25 18:50:03) Lynnutte: i hate minkatah more
(01/25 18:50:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: You know? Big, wet? Under water?
(01/25 18:50:07) GracelenRose: me
(01/25 18:50:10) Mireena raisees her hand
(01/25 18:50:10) Switters: black, without light….
(01/25 18:50:16) Lynnutte raises her hand
(01/25 18:50:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: that’s Tetsonot in a nutshell
(01/25 18:50:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: yeah,
(01/25 18:50:37) knytt: ditto
(01/25 18:50:38) walt raises hand
(01/25 18:50:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: I think it’s better off said that we wanted nothing to do with that place
(01/25 18:50:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: Obviously, we questioned the DRC’s motives.
(01/25 18:50:56) Mireena: spooky
(01/25 18:50:56) Lynnutte: It was creepy
(01/25 18:51:03) Lynnutte: Lol
(01/25 18:51:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: what exactly happened to Tetsonot is still not known
(01/25 18:51:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: and the DRC wouldn’t say.
(01/25 18:51:17) Dra: i still don’t know why they released such a potentially dangerous Age
(01/25 18:51:18) Mireena: broken
(01/25 18:51:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: apparently
(01/25 18:51:24) Dra: DRC was all “safety first”..
(01/25 18:51:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: it was deemed “Safe”
(01/25 18:51:34) Dra says DOH!
(01/25 18:51:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: but,
(01/25 18:51:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: really,
(01/25 18:51:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: the ADM was all over THAT like a sack of potatoes….
(01/25 18:51:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: *bad metaphor*
(01/25 18:51:56) Dra: xD
(01/25 18:52:01) Mireena: :-)
(01/25 18:52:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: in any case,
(01/25 18:52:04) Switters laughs
(01/25 18:52:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: the final portal appeared,
(01/25 18:52:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: and we all were ready for our trials to end
(01/25 18:52:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: too bad, though, we never found out what the puzzles were teaching us,
(01/25 18:52:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: yeesha had left no speaches whatso ever
(01/25 18:52:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: we had no clue what she was up to,
(01/25 18:53:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: and the most we ever heard from her were those pre-recorded speaches.
(01/25 18:53:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: We knew the first was “Unity”
(01/25 18:53:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: Seven cloths, a door, and eight explorers.
(01/25 18:53:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: But the second?
(01/25 18:53:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was time.
(01/25 18:53:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: Patience.
(01/25 18:53:33) Dra: right
(01/25 18:53:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: We had to be patient for our rewards,
(01/25 18:53:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: our simple little ring wedges
(01/25 18:53:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: so, we waited
(01/25 18:53:57) Dra: funny, considering how many people wanted the DRC to be faster :-)
(01/25 18:53:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: We waited,
(01/25 18:54:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: we waited and waited
(01/25 18:54:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: but, some of us weren’t inclined to wait
(01/25 18:54:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: you see,
(01/25 18:54:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: some explorers banded together,
(01/25 18:54:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: in sil_oh_wet’s bevin,
(01/25 18:54:29) Mireena: I was there
(01/25 18:54:31) Lynnutte: lol yeah we were
(01/25 18:54:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: they formed a Hand Symbol, the Preafter Journey,
(01/25 18:54:36) Lynnutte: me too
(01/25 18:54:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: on the fountain/plaza floor.
(01/25 18:54:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: and, after hours of waiting,
(01/25 18:54:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: something happened
(01/25 18:54:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: it wasn’t much,
(01/25 18:55:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: but it was something.
(01/25 18:55:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: a glowing flicker of light,
(01/25 18:55:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: and then the form of Yeesha appeared on the fountain,
(01/25 18:55:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: it was a hologram,
(01/25 18:55:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: but it was a sure sign to us,
(01/25 18:55:25) Francus N. Stein: exuse me I could not hear you
(01/25 18:55:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: She was waiting, she was watching,
(01/25 18:55:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: and so, we waited more,
(01/25 18:55:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: and finially,
(01/25 18:56:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: a crack in the illusion of the “Normality” that had fallen upon us,
(01/25 18:56:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: a crack that signified so much,
(01/25 18:56:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: and so many things. Horrible, horrible things.
(01/25 18:56:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: we waited at this crack when it occured,
(01/25 18:56:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: and we waited, united as one group.
(01/25 18:57:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: for… for the Scars that still remain on some of us.
(01/25 18:57:26) Lynnutte nods
(01/25 18:57:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: This is our heritage, You know?
(01/25 18:57:44) Dra nods his head
(01/25 18:57:46) Switters rubs his scars
(01/25 18:57:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: so many important events lead us here,
(01/25 18:57:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: and, here we are,
(01/25 18:58:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: I mention a scar that occured,
(01/25 18:58:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: and it reminds me of something more, something recent.
(01/25 18:58:30) Jayim Duinara: I’m sorry that I came in so late to events in the cavern. I would have liked to have seen and experienced all that stuff myself.
(01/25 18:58:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: we do not know what those bahro were thinking last Tuesday when they reappeared
(01/25 18:58:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: I mean, they made the sky change colors.
(01/25 18:58:50) Lynnutte: I hope it’s a good sign
(01/25 18:58:52) Dra: fog, not sky
(01/25 18:58:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: It makes me think of someone else,
(01/25 18:58:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: actually,
(01/25 18:59:01) Jayim Duinara: You mean the ones flying around the arch?
(01/25 18:59:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: someone a bit… crazy…
(01/25 18:59:03) Lynnutte: Who?
(01/25 18:59:07) Lynnutte: phil?
(01/25 18:59:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: but, that’s a story for another time, I’m affraid.
(01/25 18:59:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: Yes, Lynn,
(01/25 18:59:14) Dra: they also messed with the Arch and the Age a bit
(01/25 18:59:19) Lynnutte: Ah ok
(01/25 18:59:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: but, while these bahro in Ae’gura,
(01/25 18:59:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: while they seem friendly,
(01/25 18:59:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: while they have only commited… parlor tricks, essentially
(01/25 18:59:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: we do not know what they have planned.
(01/25 18:59:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: or what they’re about to do.
(01/25 19:00:03) Lynnutte: We never do
(01/25 19:00:04) Dra: you can’t tell bad bahro from good ones
(01/25 19:00:10) Dra: so be careful
(01/25 19:00:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: “it’s not like the have red eyes.”
(01/25 19:00:18) Lynnutte: Very careful
(01/25 19:00:27) Francus N. Stein: you cant tell a bad person from a good one
(01/25 19:00:34) Mireena: I will have faith that they are ‘good’ until they act otherwise
(01/25 19:00:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: so, I’ll close this evening with a message
(01/25 19:00:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: “Normal” is not what is normally assumed when the word is said
(01/25 19:00:55) Lynnutte: Me too Mirrena, but proceed with caution. lol
(01/25 19:00:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: “Usual, Standard, unifed, unchanging”
(01/25 19:01:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: this is easily reminded by those bahro,
(01/25 19:01:17) Lynnutte: Cautioos optimism. lol
(01/25 19:01:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: they added yet another crack in our illusion of “Safety”
(01/25 19:01:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: a deception that they themselves put in place.
(01/25 19:01:37) Dra: an illusion which was kept for us,
(01/25 19:01:40) Dra: for a long time
(01/25 19:01:44) Dra: by certain people
(01/25 19:01:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: yes, Dra,
(01/25 19:01:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: so, I will simply end with this,
(01/25 19:02:00) Dra: but that is for a long time from now, isn’t it? :)
(01/25 19:02:02) Switters: sometimes, normal is the opposite of “normal”, in all cases….
(01/25 19:02:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: yes, Switters,
(01/25 19:02:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: exactly.
(01/25 19:02:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: that is the nature of D’ni
(01/25 19:02:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: in all my time here,
(01/25 19:02:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: I’ve never had a day exactly the same as the last,
(01/25 19:02:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: each day when things were happening here was fresh, new, exciting,
(01/25 19:03:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: you will always find that, somewhere, there is a bit of change, always different.
(01/25 19:03:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: and that is what they reminded us of all those years ago,
(01/25 19:03:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: and what they re-remind us of today
(01/25 19:03:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: shorah everyone, and have a good night
(01/25 19:03:42) DimensionTravelerCalum bows

(01/25 19:07:20) …Chat.log stopped.
