Heritage Night 8

Scars in the Cavern

(02/01 18:03:15) Chat.log started…
(02/01 18:03:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: so, with out further adue,
(02/01 18:03:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: the week of Scars.
(02/01 18:03:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: This was a week of tradgedy,
(02/01 18:04:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: it was a week where we were all tested, to a degree,
(02/01 18:04:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: It started out innocent enough,
(02/01 18:04:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: Douglas Sharper announced that he was going on a trip to Negilahn, to hunt the predator that was killing the animals.
(02/01 18:04:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: We were concerned, yes,
(02/01 18:04:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: but Sharper was a trained hunter,
(02/01 18:05:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: he could handle himself,
(02/01 18:05:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: it was just shortly after that that the first reports of siesmic activity came in from Ae’gura,
(02/01 18:06:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: It wasn’t much of a surprise, really,
(02/01 18:06:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: considering all the damage done in the great scream months earliar,
(02/01 18:06:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: so, we and the DRC meerly ignored it,
(02/01 18:06:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: atleast,
(02/01 18:06:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: until a physical crack manifsted itself,
(02/01 18:07:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: in the Kahlo Pub, in a far corner,
(02/01 18:07:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: there was now a small crack,
(02/01 18:07:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: that night, we all went to bed expecting nothing out of the ordinary,
(02/01 18:07:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: how wrong we were.
(02/01 18:07:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: the next day, Sharper had left for Negilahn with Nick White,
(02/01 18:08:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: and Willow and her friend Rosette Taylor were down in the cavern,
(02/01 18:08:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: running Marker Missions,
(02/01 18:08:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: blasted things.
(02/01 18:09:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC had closed off the Kahlo Pub for the time being, and warnned explorers to stay away,
(02/01 18:09:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: we explorers were warnning Wheely and Rosette to do the same,
(02/01 18:09:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: Wheely just laughed,
(02/01 18:09:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: “My father’s being overcautious” Or something like that.
(02/01 18:09:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: But, when the time came for them to go to the city,
(02/01 18:09:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: they seemed to heed our advice,
(02/01 18:10:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: and ignored the Pub’s markers for the time being.
(02/01 18:10:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: Well,
(02/01 18:10:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: I can imagine you all realize that Wheely was an explorer at heard,
(02/01 18:10:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: heart*
(02/01 18:10:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: and wasn’t going to let some silly little crack get in her way,
(02/01 18:11:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: no, she was bound and determined to explore it.
(02/01 18:11:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: after all, wouldn’t you if you had the chance?
(02/01 18:11:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: to be the first to see something brand new and exciting?
(02/01 18:11:27) Chrisman: definitely
(02/01 18:11:34) DaVinci: yep
(02/01 18:11:35) Termostat: amen
(02/01 18:11:36) Cactus Wren nods
(02/01 18:11:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: Well, Wheely used that same logic,
(02/01 18:11:55) Cactus Wren: How old was she?
(02/01 18:11:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: and tricked those of us trying to keep them away from the Kahlo Pub into heading towards the library,
(02/01 18:12:00) From frances: where is this kahlo pub located?
(02/01 18:12:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: erm, pardon me for a moment while I answer this PM I just got,
(02/01 18:12:27) frances: kahlo pub?
(02/01 18:12:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: the Kahlo Pub is in the city, on the side of the stairs,
(02/01 18:12:49) Carl Palmner: Cactus–Wheely was 14.
(02/01 18:12:59) Cactus Wren: Oh.
(02/01 18:13:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: Yeah, just a kid.
(02/01 18:13:03) Carl Palmner goes back to quietly observing
(02/01 18:13:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: In any case,
(02/01 18:13:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: I was casually listening to neighbors chat when, all of a sudden,
(02/01 18:13:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: Someone cried out
(02/01 18:13:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: “Hey, Wheely just discovered a crack at the Library!”
(02/01 18:13:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: Or something similar.
(02/01 18:14:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: you’ll forgive me for not remembering exactly, my mind’s a bit foggy about the exact phrasing,
(02/01 18:14:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: But, the moment I’d heard that,
(02/01 18:14:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: i knew what Wheely had done,
(02/01 18:14:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: I doubt that even I had managed to make it to the Kahlo Pub,
(02/01 18:14:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: within a reasonable amount of time,
(02/01 18:15:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: Things still would’ve remained unchanged.
(02/01 18:15:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: Wheely had used her DRC altered KI to ‘ghost’ her signal to appear by the Library,
(02/01 18:15:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: While she and Rosette were really in the Kahlo Pub,
(02/01 18:15:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: They went into the crack,
(02/01 18:16:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: And then their KI signals vanished.
(02/01 18:16:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: the DRC were call- pardon me for a moment,
(02/01 18:16:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: Yes, right,
(02/01 18:16:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC were called in,
(02/01 18:17:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: To investigate the crack in the Library,
(02/01 18:17:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: But they couldn’t find any,
(02/01 18:17:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: And, with the rumors quickly running that the two girls were now missing..?
(02/01 18:17:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: They began to pannic.
(02/01 18:17:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: at first,
(02/01 18:18:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: Engberg thought that Wheely and Rosette were just playing around
(02/01 18:18:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: Teenage antics,
(02/01 18:18:12) DimensionTravelerCalum shakes his head
(02/01 18:18:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: The city was soon locked out of the nexus,
(02/01 18:18:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: And a KI mail sent out
(02/01 18:18:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: Declaring Willow Engberg and Rosette Taylor to be missing.
(02/01 18:19:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: Things,, I guess, only went down hill from here,
(02/01 18:19:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: Explorers were annoyed that they had been locked out,
(02/01 18:19:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: But they were persistant,
(02/01 18:19:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: They would soon find ways to circumvent the city lock out,
(02/01 18:19:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: And make their ways into the city,
(02/01 18:19:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: As the DRC and Restoration Engineers searched the city for the two girls.
(02/01 18:20:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: nick White returned from Negilahn early,
(02/01 18:20:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: At the KI mail reporting the girl’s dissapearance
(02/01 18:20:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: He pleaded with explorers to leave the DRC alone,
(02/01 18:20:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: Especially Engberg,
(02/01 18:21:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: Who undoubtably was having flashbacks to his wife’s death in a climbing accident, years earliar.
(02/01 18:21:24) Cactus Wren: Dear Lord.
(02/01 18:21:39) DaVinci: omg
(02/01 18:21:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: he also told us that Sharper was still in Negilahn,
(02/01 18:21:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: Still hunting the predator,
(02/01 18:21:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: Still watching,
(02/01 18:21:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: Still waiting,
(02/01 18:22:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: nick, despite also being fired the week before,
(02/01 18:22:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: Still had some good points with the DRC,
(02/01 18:22:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: He was allowed into the city at one point, If I recall, to help talk out the explorers there,
(02/01 18:22:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: Um, Carl? Am I remmembering that right?
(02/01 18:23:02) Carl Palmner: Sounds right to me
(02/01 18:23:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: okay, we’ll go with that,
(02/01 18:23:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: He managed to talk the Explorers in the city to leave,
(02/01 18:23:25) Carl Palmner: I believe he still had his DRC KI and everything, allowing him to go even where most normal explorers were prohibited.
(02/01 18:23:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: *nods* ok
(02/01 18:23:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: Thanks,
(02/01 18:23:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: But, the DRC realzied that it would be impossible to keep the explorers out,
(02/01 18:24:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: So, they reopened the city,
(02/01 18:24:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: Albeit at a lower population density than before,
(02/01 18:24:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: The very next day,
(02/01 18:24:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: When there was actuall news
(02/01 18:24:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: A KI Signal had been detected,
(02/01 18:24:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: Behind the crack in the pub,
(02/01 18:24:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: Now steadily worse than before,
(02/01 18:25:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: laxman had turned the KI on remotely,
(02/01 18:25:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: And, lo and behold, Wheely was fine,
(02/01 18:25:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: Dazed, tired, and weak,
(02/01 18:25:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: But alive,
(02/01 18:25:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: And trapped.
(02/01 18:25:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: she was in a bahro cave.
(02/01 18:25:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: And you all know how those caves mess with our Relto books.
(02/01 18:26:18) Chrisman: was willow with her?
(02/01 18:26:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: Willow = Wheely,
(02/01 18:26:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: Wheely is her nickname,
(02/01 18:26:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: but if you mean Rosette?
(02/01 18:26:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: Well,
(02/01 18:27:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: We wouldn’t find out the string of events until wheely was conscious again,
(02/01 18:27:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: But Rosette had touched a Bahro glyph on the wall,
(02/01 18:27:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: There was a bahro scream,
{BAHRO SCREAM}
(02/01 18:27:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: and, reports varry,
(02/01 18:27:43) Carl Palmner: Whoa that was eerie
(02/01 18:27:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: Either there was a bahro in the cave that touched their books,
(02/01 18:27:54) Carl Palmner: He said “Bahro scream”, and then a Bahro screamed.
(02/01 18:27:58) Carl Palmner shuts up again.
(02/01 18:28:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: or there wasn’t one in there until the glyph was pressed
(02/01 18:28:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: In any case,
(02/01 18:28:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: The wall Rosette had touched collapsed,
(02/01 18:28:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sealing the crack,
(02/01 18:28:44) DaVinci: yes the glyph ws pressed first
(02/01 18:28:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: And knocking Wheely unconscious,
(02/01 18:28:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: rosette…
(02/01 18:28:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: Was crushed by the rubble.
(02/01 18:29:13) DimensionTravelerCalum takes a few moments,
{ANOTHER BAHRO SCREAM}
(02/01 18:29:28) DimensionTravelerCalum smiles weakly at the bahro scream just now

(02/01 18:29:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: coincidentally enough,
(02/01 18:30:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: From the moment the crack had appeared in the Kahlo Pub,
(02/01 18:30:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: bahro activity had been increasing in the City,
(02/01 18:30:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: You could hear their screams increasing in number,
(02/01 18:30:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: And, at some points,
(02/01 18:30:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: You could even see them on the rooftops,
(02/01 18:30:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: One, most noteably, on the Library rooftop
(02/01 18:31:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: Of course, their CURRENT level of activity is way much enhanced than what was there then,
(02/01 18:31:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: We would only catch glimpses of them from time to time,
(02/01 18:31:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: But for many of us, they were rather close,
(02/01 18:31:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: in any case,
(02/01 18:32:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC had began excavating from the top floor of the Kahlo Building,
(02/01 18:32:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: it would be a long,
(02/01 18:32:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: Hard, and tiring dig,
(02/01 18:32:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: But they would reach her,
(02/01 18:32:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: on the first floor,
(02/01 18:32:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: From the very top,
(02/01 18:33:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: It wouldn’t be fast enough, though,
(02/01 18:33:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: Just, not fast enough.
(02/01 18:33:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: They dug for a whole day,
(02/01 18:33:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: All the while, periodically recieving messages from wheely,
(02/01 18:34:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: Strange things happened over the course of that seemingly infinite span of time,
(02/01 18:34:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: One of which, was that Wheely’s KI suddenly reported her location as being in several different ages,
(02/01 18:34:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: Despite the coordinates and actually signal broadcast location being the same,
(02/01 18:34:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: ae’gura, behind that crack,
(02/01 18:34:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: Before finally going offline.
(02/01 18:35:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: When her KI came on next, she had just woken up
(02/01 18:35:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: And seemingly refresshed,
(02/01 18:35:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: she was no longer tired,
(02/01 18:35:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: And any thirst she had before hand was gone,
(02/01 18:36:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: She was healed, apparently.
(02/01 18:36:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: How or why or for what reason?
(02/01 18:36:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: We do not know,
(02/01 18:36:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: Perhaps it was due to her drawing the rain glyph on the floor?
(02/01 18:36:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: Oh,
(02/01 18:36:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: Stupid me
(02/01 18:36:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: I just realized I forgot one of the most important details,
(02/01 18:37:07) DimensionTravelerCalum smacks his fist into his head, muttering dumb dumb stupid dumb
(02/01 18:37:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: There was a Bahro in the cave with her,
(02/01 18:37:19) Carl Palmner: You’re fine :)
(02/01 18:37:23) Cactus Wren: This is hardly easy for you, Calum
(02/01 18:37:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: right, well, moving on, I suppose,
(02/01 18:38:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: Wheely had noted almost early on that there was a pair of blue eyes in the cave with her,
(02/01 18:38:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was a bahro,
(02/01 18:38:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: And, as the excavation neared it’s end destination,
(02/01 18:38:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: It grew aggitated,
(02/01 18:38:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: Although,
(02/01 18:38:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: At the time,
(02/01 18:39:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: We suspected only one bahro in the cave,
(02/01 18:39:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: It’s quite likely that there were two,
(02/01 18:39:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: The Bahro seemingly had two sides,
(02/01 18:39:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: A helpful side, and a “scare” side,
(02/01 18:39:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: Which, really,
(02/01 18:39:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: Could only be explained by two bahro being there,
(02/01 18:39:59) DaVinci: oh yea there was 2
(02/01 18:40:12) Carl Palmner jumps in quickly…
(02/01 18:40:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: yes Carl?
(02/01 18:40:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: Go ahead
(02/01 18:40:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: *searches quickly for something to drink*
{/me retrieves some ginger ale from his Sylladex}
(02/01 18:40:48) Carl Palmner: That’s the theory I ascribe to as well, but just to clarify–we don’t know for a fact that there were two. In fact a very important former DRC member believed there was only one, but I won’t ruin that surprise.
(02/01 18:40:55) DaVinci throws Calum a can of soda pop
(02/01 18:41:07) Carl Palmner: I believe there were 2 as well, though–just pointing out we can’t be absolutely certain :)
(02/01 18:41:16) Carl Palmner: Sorry, I’ll shut up now :)
(02/01 18:41:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: No, thanks carl,
(02/01 18:41:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: *got the time to calm his throat down a bit*
(02/01 18:41:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: Okay, moving on,
(02/01 18:41:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: Simultaneously to all of this,
(02/01 18:41:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: nick recieved a KI mail from Sharper,
(02/01 18:41:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: The “bait” for the predator,
(02/01 18:42:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: An Urwin nicnamed Peggy Sue,
(02/01 18:42:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: That Sharper had been watching,
(02/01 18:42:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: Had been slain,
(02/01 18:42:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: It’s head ripped clean off,
(02/01 18:42:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: And dragged into the jungle,
(02/01 18:42:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: The same wounds,
(02/01 18:42:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: But a different M.O.
(02/01 18:42:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: before,
(02/01 18:43:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: The Predator had left the bodies intact, albeit maimed,
(02/01 18:43:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: Never before had a part been dragged off.
(02/01 18:43:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: In any case, Sharper was following the Beast, and had turned off his KI.
(02/01 18:43:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: while our thoughts did turn towards him, we were whole-heartedly focused on Wheely’s rescue.
(02/01 18:44:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was a… It was a long day,
(02/01 18:44:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: All of those in the city were relaying current events to their buddies and neighbors,
(02/01 18:44:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: That’s exactly how I heard what happened at the end,
(02/01 18:44:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: through a relay,
(02/01 18:45:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was… 7:00 P.m., on… um…
(02/01 18:45:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: May 23rd, I think,
{/me pauses briefly}
(02/01 18:45:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: Right,
(02/01 18:45:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: sorry, just taking a moment to compose myself.
(02/01 18:46:01) Carl Palmner nods his head
{/me collects himself again}
(02/01 18:46:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: Okay,
(02/01 18:46:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: Right,
(02/01 18:46:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: The excavation crew was nearly through,
(02/01 18:46:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: They had made a small hole,
(02/01 18:46:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: And tried to lower a linking book to Wheely,
(02/01 18:47:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: No dice,
(02/01 18:47:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: The book was blacked out inside the cave.
(02/01 18:47:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: as they hurried to make the hole bigger,
(02/01 18:47:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: The bahro inside the cave began chanting
(02/01 18:47:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: “no… no something” wheely reported at first
(02/01 18:48:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: Quickly, the explorers outside the Kahlo Pub all deduced what it was
(02/01 18:48:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: “Noloben!”
(02/01 18:48:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: indeed,
(02/01 18:48:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: the Bahro was chanting the name of their supposed ‘home world’
(02/01 18:48:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: and it was growing mad with each passing second,
(02/01 18:48:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: The hole was finally big enough, and they hooked up a ResEng to go down,
(02/01 18:49:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: (wasn’t he #223, Carl?)
(02/01 18:49:14) Carl Palmner: Don’t remember
(02/01 18:49:16) Carl Palmner shrugs
(02/01 18:49:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: in any case,
(02/01 18:49:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: they started lowering him down,
(02/01 18:49:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: and..and then the bahro lunged with a mighty scream
(02/01 18:49:59) Carl Palmner bows his head.
(02/01 18:50:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: ResEng223 cried out allmost immediately, “Get me out of here”
(02/01 18:50:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: Engberg was distraught
(02/01 18:50:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: “What? Where is she?”
(02/01 18:50:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: “She’s gone.” was the solemn reply.
(02/01 18:50:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: We, we never saw the body,
(02/01 18:50:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: nor would we want to,
(02/01 18:50:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: it was shredded,
(02/01 18:50:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: mangled, just like the poor creatures in the Pods,
(02/01 18:51:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: we knew right away that the Predator was a Bahro.
(02/01 18:51:12) Cactus Wren whispers
(02/01 18:51:16) Chrisman: poor Wheely to have to see that
(02/01 18:51:17) Cactus Wren: Oh dear Lord in heaven.
(02/01 18:51:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: Cate Alexander ordered the DRC KI’s set to a private channel,
(02/01 18:51:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: and explorers everywhere gasped in shock,
(02/01 18:51:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: it all happened within the span of a few seconds,
(02/01 18:51:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: a minute tops,
(02/01 18:51:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: and it was all over,
(02/01 18:51:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: two lives lost,
(02/01 18:52:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: But, the week was not done,
(02/01 18:52:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: the next day,
(02/01 18:52:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: as everyone mourned the loss,
(02/01 18:52:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sharper stumbled back into the lake light,
(02/01 18:52:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: He had news,
(02/01 18:52:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: the Predator was a bahro, allright,
(02/01 18:52:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: he had seen the beast dragging the head behind it like a fallen log
(02/01 18:53:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: but, it suddenly vanished,
(02/01 18:53:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: leaving the head in the middle of a clearing,
(02/01 18:53:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: sharper waited with baited breath,
(02/01 18:53:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: before he finally looked up
(02/01 18:53:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: bahro,
(02/01 18:53:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: everywhere,
(02/01 18:53:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: in the trees,
(02/01 18:53:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: all of them watching him.
(02/01 18:53:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was a trap.
(02/01 18:53:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: SHarper had little time to react,
(02/01 18:54:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: for, the bahro began their assault,
(02/01 18:54:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: several diving towards him.
(02/01 18:54:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: when, suddenly,
(02/01 18:54:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: another group of bahro appeared,
(02/01 18:54:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: fighting off this other group.
(02/01 18:54:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: it was war,
(02/01 18:54:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: the Bahro were at war.
(02/01 18:54:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: fighting amongst themselves,
(02/01 18:54:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: Even Sharper didn’t know how he survived it,
(02/01 18:55:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: he had reached for his relto book when one “dark” Bahro came towards him,
(02/01 18:55:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: two “Light” ones had jumped ontop of him,’
(02/01 18:55:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: and then the next thing he knew,
(02/01 18:55:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: he was on relto,
(02/01 18:55:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: We were stunned,
(02/01 18:55:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: so the bahro that killed Wheely was a bad one?
(02/01 18:56:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: why had it wanted to do that?
(02/01 18:56:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: we ran wild with theoreys,
(02/01 18:56:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: and, in the end, some would turn out true, most false,
(02/01 18:56:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: but, those are other stories,
(02/01 18:56:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: you see, for the rest of the day,
(02/01 18:57:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: the Kahlo Pub was deemed “Sturdy” once more,
(02/01 18:57:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: and Engberg was now mourning infront of the crack,
(02/01 18:57:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: surrounding it with flowers and wreaths,
(02/01 18:57:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: we gave him his space,
(02/01 18:57:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: the poor guy,
(02/01 18:57:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: still, though,
(02/01 18:58:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: the day only seemed to end with the Structural Engineer for the DRC running off to Descent,
(02/01 18:58:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: muttering only one name
(02/01 18:58:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: “Doctor Watson”
(02/01 18:58:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: he was declaired missing that night.
(02/01 18:58:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: and so, as if to give the week a “proper” finish,
(02/01 18:59:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: Cate Alexander simply dropped off the Minkata Book in the LIbrary the following day,
(02/01 18:59:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: “Minkata means Heavily Scarred,
(02/01 18:59:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: it’s been said,
(02/01 18:59:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: Quite appropriate.
(02/01 18:59:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: so,
(02/01 19:00:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: we ended this fretful week by hanging out in the desert,
(02/01 19:00:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: alone, and together,
(02/01 19:00:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: we would find our path in the stars,
(02/01 19:00:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: and we would shift through the next “ring challenge”
(02/01 19:00:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: easily enough.
(02/01 19:01:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: Ugh, I think I screwed up that ending there,
(02/01 19:01:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: oh well,
(02/01 19:01:11) Chrisman claps his hands
(02/01 19:01:13) MystMan1102: sounded good to me
(02/01 19:01:17) Carl Palmner claps his hands
(02/01 19:01:17) MystMan1102 claps his hands
(02/01 19:01:17) Alphonse Godot claps his hands
(02/01 19:01:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: this was Scars,
(02/01 19:01:23) DimensionTravelerCalum bows
(02/01 19:01:23) DaVinci claps his hands
(02/01 19:01:24) MystMan1102 cheers
(02/01 19:01:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: and I hope you enjoyed it,
