(08/28 12:01:46) garden sage: ?
(08/28 12:01:56) (GoSleep) TOOO: So THAT was the crash I heard!
(08/28 12:01:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: The D’nitos collection inside has just been spontaneously animated
(08/28 12:02:07) tommyap: must have been narameh’s order
(08/28 12:02:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: And is now consuming the other brands of chips.
(08/28 12:02:13) Narameh claps her hands
(08/28 12:02:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: Finally,
(08/28 12:02:33) Csawyer is waiting for the soft drinks
(08/28 12:02:33) (GoSleep) TOOO: d;nitos! The snack that reminds you of old stone ruins
(08/28 12:02:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: Snacks are kept in the classroom (Minus those animated D”nitos)
(08/28 12:03:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: And drinks are cooled in the fountain.
(08/28 12:03:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: And on that subject
(08/28 12:03:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: Tonight’s HN is brought to you by:
(08/28 12:03:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: LUNCH!
(08/28 12:03:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: The second most important meal of the day!
{AN: Something I’m putting off by editing this log right this instant! XP}
(08/28 12:03:44) Csawyer isnt surprised
(08/28 12:03:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: Now then,
(08/28 12:03:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: Onto the story!
(08/28 12:04:00) (GoSleep) TOOO: And also by the leter U
(08/28 12:04:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: yes, and the letter U too :P
(08/28 12:04:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: 0u0
(08/28 12:04:21) tommyap: lol
(08/28 12:04:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: last week, whether you were here or not,
(08/28 12:04:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: Rapacious One told us the tale of how we returned to the cavern for the second restoration
(08/28 12:05:11) Narameh cheers
(08/28 12:05:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: And how there were strifes, fractures, and aggrievences going about in the cavern
(08/28 12:05:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: Along with several bahro encounters
(08/28 12:05:42) AlexS kneels down…
(08/28 12:05:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: We discovered the, what I call, “Ring Challenges”
(08/28 12:05:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: In which the rewards were floating stone rings,
(08/28 12:06:13) garden sage: :)
(08/28 12:06:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: by the end of this week, however,
(08/28 12:06:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: We would be seeking out the “Ring Challenge” of this week in solitude,
(08/28 12:06:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: on our own, alone,
(08/28 12:06:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: Or, in groups, with friends, and neighbors, together
(08/28 12:07:19) EthanEver needs a moment to breathe!
(08/28 12:07:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: Such was the turmoil which struck us this week.
(08/28 12:07:25) angelmyst waves hello
(08/28 12:07:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: it began like any other day,
(08/28 12:07:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC announced a new age, Minkata, was to be released to the public later that week
(08/28 12:08:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: but, that wasn’t all we were to find that week.
(08/28 12:08:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: Surprisingly, two relto pages were found within the first day alone,
(08/28 12:09:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: Almost as if Yeesha, or whomever left the pages these dayss, were saying something,
(08/28 12:09:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: it was confusing, but not unheard of.
(08/28 12:09:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: The original batch of relto pages,
(08/28 12:09:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: As far as I know,
(08/28 12:09:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: Were found en-mass,
(08/28 12:10:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: Despite the DRCs original attempts to remove them.
(08/28 12:10:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: We should have taken it as a sign.
(08/28 12:10:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: as you may or may not know
(08/28 12:10:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC was lead at the time,
(08/28 12:10:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: By the four surviving members of the original five member council.
(08/28 12:11:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: Victor Laxman, Marie Sutherland, Michael Engberg, and Ikuro Kodama.
(08/28 12:11:42) EthanEver knows Marie very well
(08/28 12:11:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: Engberg was the lead Restoration Engineer,
(08/28 12:11:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: He was the one who deemed a building safe or not.
(08/28 12:12:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: Before they began to restore it.
(08/28 12:12:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: It, as you might imagine, was a stressful job
(08/28 12:12:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: and.
(08/28 12:12:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: In the aftermath of the Great Scream
(08/28 12:13:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: Was a job not envied
(08/28 12:13:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: it was an earthquake
(08/28 12:13:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: That brought disaster upon us.
(08/28 12:13:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: A simple tremor
(08/28 12:13:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: Not uncommon in those days,
(08/28 12:13:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: But it created a crack
(08/28 12:14:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: In the corner of a wall in the Kahlo Pub in D’ni Ae’gura
(08/28 12:14:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: The Main City.
(08/28 12:14:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: I’m sorry if I take a bit to type this,
(08/28 12:15:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: Those who were there during this week know what happened,
(08/28 12:15:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: It’s hard to .. to say even after all these years.
(08/28 12:15:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: i’ll try to carry on, though.
(08/28 12:16:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: Michael Engberg had a daughter,
(08/28 12:16:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: Willow “Wheely” Engberg,
(08/28 12:16:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: who was as much an explorer as the rest of us were.
(08/28 12:16:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: Maybe more so, in some respects.
(08/28 12:16:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: Some might have called her foolish, in retrospect, but,
(08/28 12:16:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: I doubt that’s the case.
(08/28 12:17:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: Wheely was bringing a friend of hers, Rosette Taylor, down from the surface,
(08/28 12:17:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: She was showing her around D’ni,
(08/28 12:17:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: And was introducing her into the fetch quest called “Marker missions”
(08/28 12:18:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: Stupid Markers,
(08/28 12:18:07) DimensionTravelerCalum shakes his head
(08/28 12:18:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: the earthquake, as I mentioned before,
(08/28 12:18:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: Opened a crack in the kahlo pub wall
(08/28 12:18:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: As those of you who have played the red and green quests, and even sampled the 14 quests, may know,
(08/28 12:19:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: There are markers in the Kahlo Pub.
(08/28 12:19:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: markers which were now, even temporairly, inaccessable,
(08/28 12:19:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: As Michael surveyed the building.
(08/28 12:19:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: The strange thing about the earthquake was that the hood iinstances were unaffected.
(08/28 12:20:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: Explorers urged wheely and rosette to use their hood instance of Ae’gura when running those markers.
(08/28 12:20:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: But, for whatever reason,
(08/28 12:20:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: Be it that they were in different hoods,
(08/28 12:20:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: Or that they wanted to run it in the main city,
(08/28 12:21:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: it doesn’t matter,
(08/28 12:21:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: They would still go to the city,
(08/28 12:21:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: And they would still try to collect those markers.
(08/28 12:21:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: Some explorers stood outside Kahlo Pub, and guarded it,
(08/28 12:21:51) EthanEver remembers
(08/28 12:22:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: they were trying to keep Engberg’s orders of keeping the place empty fulfilled
(08/28 12:22:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: Noone knew how the building had fared from the earthquake.
(08/28 12:22:20) garden sage is getting worried
(08/28 12:22:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: But, we knew it might be badd
(08/28 12:22:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: Some of the explorers who managed to sneak in, to get pictures of the crack for documentation
(08/28 12:22:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: Noticed that it was growing.
(08/28 12:23:01) Csawyer gasps
(08/28 12:23:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: And that was very worry some.
(08/28 12:23:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: originally,
(08/28 12:23:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was a thin, tiny sliver,
(08/28 12:23:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: Now, it was big enough for someone to climb through.
(08/28 12:24:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: and, despite wheely’s claims that her father was over-reacting to it,
(08/28 12:24:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: Those guards still refused to let them through.
(08/28 12:24:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: Of course, back then, a lot of people were practically living to be ‘first’ to see something new.
(08/28 12:24:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: When Wheely said, durring her marker hunt,
(08/28 12:25:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: That she had found a new crack
(08/28 12:25:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: At the library
(08/28 12:25:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: Everyone rushed to see it.
(08/28 12:25:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: Even those few guards, if I recall the logs right.
(08/28 12:25:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: Of course, as it should always be,
(08/28 12:25:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: Every major neighborhood had someone there
(08/28 12:26:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: They relayed information to their neighbors
(08/28 12:26:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: And Uru Obsession was one of those relayed.
(08/28 12:26:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: The moment I heard about the new crack
(08/28 12:26:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: I had the opposite reaction to everyone else
(08/28 12:26:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: “The original crack.” I thought.
(08/28 12:26:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: “I’ve got to prevent anyone from getting to it.”
(08/28 12:27:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: I’m sure others thought the same,
(08/28 12:27:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: But, The influx of explorers trying to get to the city
(08/28 12:27:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: To see the ‘new’ crack,
(08/28 12:27:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: Was too much
(08/28 12:27:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: By the time I’d selected the ferry terminal link from the nexus
(08/28 12:27:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was already full,
(08/28 12:27:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: And I got rebounded mid link,
(08/28 12:27:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: Back to relto.
(08/28 12:28:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: I was too late.
(08/28 12:28:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: and, I’m sure, so were several others.
(08/28 12:28:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: The crack was left unguarded
(08/28 12:28:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: And Wheely and Rose went inside,
(08/28 12:28:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: either Out of teenage rebellion against Wheely’s father’s orders,
(08/28 12:28:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: Or out of pure curiosity.
(08/28 12:28:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: They went in.
(08/28 12:28:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: And that was when it happened.
(08/28 12:28:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: Another earth quake.
(08/28 12:29:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: The crack was sealed shut as it colappsed onto itself.
(08/28 12:29:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: And Wheely and Rose’s KI’s went out.
(08/28 12:29:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: Their signals turning off imediately.
(08/28 12:29:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: The cauuse, as you might expect, was partially from the colapse,
(08/28 12:30:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: I say partially
(08/28 12:30:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: Because right before the quake
(08/28 12:30:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: Inside that chamber that Rose and Wheely had found,
(08/28 12:30:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: something elsee happened
(08/28 12:30:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: We would only learn it from WHeely durring the DRC’s rescue attempt,
(08/28 12:30:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: But the cave inside the pub
(08/28 12:31:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was a bahro cave
(08/28 12:31:16) EthanEver: was it??
(08/28 12:31:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: And rosette had touched one of the wall glyphs,
(08/28 12:31:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: It glowed, and then, if I remember the report right,
(08/28 12:31:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: A bahro appeared, and reached out to touch their Relto books.
(08/28 12:32:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: That was when the earthquake occured,
(08/28 12:32:31) (GoSleep) TOOO is checking the logs…
(08/28 12:32:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: people still have conflicting ideas about what that bahro might have been dong…
(08/28 12:32:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: either trying to disable or reactivate their books
(08/28 12:33:05) EthanEver remembers
(08/28 12:33:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: But, in any event,
(08/28 12:33:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: The wall colapsed upon Rosette, killed instantly.
(08/28 12:33:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: Killing her instantly*
(08/28 12:34:04) garden sage had a feeling this would end badly
(08/28 12:34:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sorry, -_-; it’s hard to keep my words straight.
(08/28 12:34:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: I. I need a few moments to get myself together here,
(08/28 12:34:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: So, while I’m doing that
(08/28 12:34:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: Let’s move to Ae’gura
(08/28 12:34:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: To the Kahlo Pub
(08/28 12:34:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: At the great stairs,
(08/28 12:34:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: We’ll meet at the memorial,
(08/28 12:34:46) garden sage: is it safe?
(08/28 12:34:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: Yes, it’s long since safe.
(08/28 12:34:58) Narameh: ok!
(08/28 12:35:00) garden sage: ok
(08/28 12:35:00) Olrick140: let’s go
(08/28 12:35:01) EthanEver: Me is still emotional over this thing
(08/28 12:35:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: So, let’s head to kahlo pub now
(08/28 12:35:09) Samoth: you are doing well, DTC.
(08/28 12:35:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: See you there
(08/28 12:35:24) Alien: Everyone please meet in the Khalo Pub in the public city
{MASS LINKING}
(08/28 12:36:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: Shorah
(08/28 12:37:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: Heritage night will be continuing in the kahlo pub on the great stairs
(08/28 12:37:12) Rustyflame: shorah
(08/28 12:37:14) tommyap: awww laggy
(08/28 12:37:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: For our field trip this evening
(08/28 12:37:29) Rustyflame: letsgo
(08/28 12:37:58) Narameh: on the stairs, or in the pub itself?
(08/28 12:38:04) Heritage Night: in the pub
(08/28 12:38:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: We’re meeting at the imager just inside the pub
(08/28 12:38:37) (GoSleep) TOOO: nOW yout ell me
(08/28 12:38:46) DimensionTravelerCalum bows
(08/28 12:39:05) DimensionTravelerCalum kneels down…
(08/28 12:39:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: I’ll wait a few more moments before continuing…
(08/28 12:39:34) (GoSleep) TOOO: By the Memorial
(08/28 12:39:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: If you want to, take a look at this wall here
(08/28 12:39:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: You can see the outline of where the crack was.
(08/28 12:40:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: Okay, so….
(08/28 12:40:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: As you can see
(08/28 12:40:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: Kahlo Pub is a somber place as it stands now
(08/28 12:40:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: Before the Scars of D’ni etched themselves onto the present,
(08/28 12:40:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: kahlo was a place of fun,
(08/28 12:40:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: In D’ni’s past,
(08/28 12:41:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was a secret bar for gambling
(08/28 12:41:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: Betting on races held in the age the bar was named after
(08/28 12:41:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: Kahlo
(08/28 12:41:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: In more modern times,
(08/28 12:41:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was held as a party place.
(08/28 12:41:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: Several dance parties held between the first and second restoration were here,
(08/28 12:41:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: But now?
(08/28 12:41:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: It’s a memorial.
(08/28 12:42:00) DimensionTravelerCalum sighs
(08/28 12:42:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: Saddening as that is, we still have to continue.
(08/28 12:42:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: I’ll resume with a bit of a detour,
(08/28 12:42:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: During all of this,
(08/28 12:42:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: The Predator inside the great pod age,
(08/28 12:42:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: Was still roaming free
(08/28 12:43:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: Negilahn was chosen to be a double hunting ground,
(08/28 12:43:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: Douglass Sharper and Nick White went into the jungle,
(08/28 12:43:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: Trying to find the beast that was shredding poor animals like the Urwin to pieces
(08/28 12:43:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: And yes, I mean “shredding”
(08/28 12:43:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: Some of the corpses…
(08/28 12:44:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: You wouldn’t want to see them.
(08/28 12:44:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: Nick white observed a symbol
(08/28 12:44:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: Etched into a tree side
(08/28 12:44:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: Near the pod in Negilahn
(08/28 12:44:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was a zig zag
(08/28 12:44:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: With circles on the sides
(08/28 12:44:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: We had never seen anything like it before,
(08/28 12:45:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: When the collapse happened
(08/28 12:45:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: White returned from Negilahn,
(08/28 12:45:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: Leaving Sharper to hunt the beast
(08/28 12:45:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: Nick told us about this symbol, but could only describe it
(08/28 12:45:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: The glyph would NOT apppear on a KI shot.
(08/28 12:46:24) Sleepy Sam: Is it still there?
(08/28 12:46:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: So, we reconstructed it in a Ki mail.
(08/28 12:46:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: Best as we could
(08/28 12:47:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: The end result ended up loosely matching what we would later recognise as the Minkata divison glyph
(08/28 12:47:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: Nick observed though, some time later,
(08/28 12:47:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: That the glyph was gone, after all of this was said and done.
(08/28 12:47:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: So no, it’s not still there.
(08/28 12:47:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: In any case,
(08/28 12:48:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: Nick returned to help give the explorers some support while the DRC dug wheely out
(08/28 12:48:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: But, i’m getting ahead, slightly,
(08/28 12:48:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: Nick’s most useful roll would come a bit later,
(08/28 12:48:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: You see,
(08/28 12:49:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: After it was reasoned that wheely and rose were inside the crack
(08/28 12:49:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC ordered the city to be evacuated
(08/28 12:49:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: Some of you may have seen a man in a blue hard hat recently,
(08/28 12:49:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: That man is a ResEng, a restoration engineer,
(08/28 12:49:33) tommyap: yep
(08/28 12:49:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: And he works for the DRC,
(08/28 12:49:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: Well
(08/28 12:49:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: Worked
(08/28 12:49:40) (GoSleep) TOOO: mDogherra
(08/28 12:49:53) garden sage: i didnt see him
(08/28 12:49:53) Samoth: yes, seen him.
(08/28 12:49:55) AlexandraLara nods her head
(08/28 12:50:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: In any case
(08/28 12:50:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC had their ResEngs go about emptying the city
(08/28 12:50:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: Explorers were linked out
(08/28 12:50:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: And the base population for the city was set to zero
(08/28 12:51:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: Only the DRC and the ResEngs remained
(08/28 12:51:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: They searched
(08/28 12:51:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: But nobody would find wheely in the exploreable city
(08/28 12:51:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: Laxman, the tech specialist,
(08/28 12:52:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: Brought their KI’s to online statuse using a remote activation hack,
{AN: My use of the word “Hack” here is because, honestly, ALL KI’s are hacked from the originals, to display English instead of D’ni. The DRC simply modified theirs more than the ones released to the Explorer population. Remember Kids! “Hacker” is the GOOD term, “Cracker” is the BAD term. ;) *rainbow* THE MORE YOU KNOW!*/rainbow*}
(08/28 12:52:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: They were most definitely inside the crack.
(08/28 12:52:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: So, they began diggiing,
(08/28 12:52:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: But, while they continued the search while also digging from the rooftop,
(08/28 12:52:49) EthanEver gasps: Laxman HACKED?!
(08/28 12:52:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: (mm) You know what I mean,
(08/28 12:53:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: Anyways,
(08/28 12:53:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: Explorers found their way into the city using sharing glitches
(08/28 12:53:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: Since the gallery doors had recently been opened,
(08/28 12:53:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: Explorers managed to get in through there.
(08/28 12:54:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: They would often get snipits of conversation from the DRC
(08/28 12:54:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: But more often than not
(08/28 12:54:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: They would be found and removed
(08/28 12:54:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: nick said that the explorers were causing the DRC trouble by disturbing their search and rescue operations
(08/28 12:54:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: But eventually, he went into the city, and convinced them to reopen the city
(08/28 12:55:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: they did so,and explorers gathered outside kahlo
(08/28 12:55:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: There were barriers though
(08/28 12:55:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: More than those two orange horses outside the entrance now
(08/28 12:55:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: We wouldn’t dare have passed, however,
(08/28 12:55:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: Well, most wouldn’t.
(08/28 12:56:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: Some might have tried.
(08/28 12:56:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: *shrug*
(08/28 12:56:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC soon got communications with Wheely opened again,
(08/28 12:56:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: When she regained consciousness
(08/28 12:56:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: i… It’s hard to try to even think up those conversations now.
(08/28 12:57:02) (GoSleep) TOOO is looking at those logs
(08/28 12:57:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: To even re-say them is something I don’t think I could even do.
(08/28 12:57:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: But once wheely was awake, explorers cheered her on, letting her know they were there for her.
(08/28 12:57:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC started at the top floor of this building
(08/28 12:57:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: And they were digging down
(08/28 12:57:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: Floor by floor.
(08/28 12:58:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: The stairs were either damaged
(08/28 12:58:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: Or there weren’t any
(08/28 12:58:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: The D’ni probably used linking to get about in this particular building.
(08/28 12:58:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: Who knows for sure though.
(08/28 12:58:58) EthanEver: Once gain: You are doing a FANTASTIC job with the Heritage Nite… apart some spelling issues LOL… I need to go… THANKS for what you do for us!
(08/28 12:59:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: okay ethan, see ya
(08/28 12:59:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: Right, then.
(08/28 12:59:18) EthanEver: Oh… that was supposed to be PRIVATE
(08/28 12:59:21) EthanEver: lOL
(08/28 12:59:24) tommyap: lol
(08/28 12:59:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: ^_^;
(08/28 12:59:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: Right,
(08/28 12:59:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: Always a bit of humor to lighten the mood, eh?
(08/28 12:59:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: Right… -_-;
(08/28 13:00:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: tHe DRC would dig down for days
(08/28 13:00:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: each day was filled with suspence, and anticipation
(08/28 13:00:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: conversations happened, events happened,
(08/28 13:00:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: But the center stage was the rescue
(08/28 13:01:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: Wheely was alone down there, save for this pair of blue eyes hanging from the shadows
(08/28 13:01:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: A bahro, we reasoned
(08/28 13:01:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: Wheely drew the “Rain” glyph from Noloben
(08/28 13:01:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: Which the DRC had visited, but not yet released.
(08/28 13:01:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was a hive of Bahro activity, after all.
(08/28 13:02:02) garden sage: was she thirsty?
(08/28 13:02:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: She was,
(08/28 13:02:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: Dehydrated even
(08/28 13:02:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: The bahro didn’t see, to ‘take’ the sign at first
(08/28 13:02:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: But when wheely blacked out next
(08/28 13:02:29) Narameh: How many days had she been down there?
(08/28 13:02:33) Narameh: By this point
(08/28 13:02:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: I don’t recall
(08/28 13:02:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: I honestly don’t.
(08/28 13:02:56) garden sage: it must have seemed a long time
(08/28 13:03:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: it did.
(08/28 13:03:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: ahhem
(08/28 13:03:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: When she blacked out next
(08/28 13:03:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: Her KI reported her age location as several different ages repeatedly
(08/28 13:03:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: Despite the signal remaining here.
(08/28 13:03:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: In Ae’gura
(08/28 13:04:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: mr. Engberg went to Wheely’s ages
(08/28 13:04:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: In an attempt to follow that path
(08/28 13:04:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: But, he wouldn’t find her.
(08/28 13:04:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: When she woke up next,
(08/28 13:04:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: Wheely wasn’t dehydrated
(08/28 13:04:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: The bahro had given her water, somehow
(08/28 13:04:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: several days of digging, Waiting, And praying later
(08/28 13:05:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: the DRC were at the last floor
(08/28 13:05:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: Ready to break through
(08/28 13:05:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: That’s when they found it
(08/28 13:05:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: A glyph similar to the one Nick White had found
(08/28 13:06:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: An explorer sent Marie the KI mail they;d sent Nick
(08/28 13:06:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: And she confirmed it was the same symbol.
(08/28 13:06:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC had to destroy the sign though
(08/28 13:06:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: Inorder to break through
(08/28 13:06:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: Some think that was what sealed it,
(08/28 13:06:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: Others…?
(08/28 13:06:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: I;m not sure of.
(08/28 13:07:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: I personally doubt it was the sign holding anything back
(08/28 13:07:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: But, we can’t be sure.
(08/28 13:07:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC finally broke through
(08/28 13:07:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: And lowered down a book
(08/28 13:07:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: It wouldn’t work
(08/28 13:07:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: for the same reason wheely couldn’t relto out
(08/28 13:07:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: The cave, like the Bahro caves we’ve all surely visited,
(08/28 13:08:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: Blocked books from working.
(08/28 13:08:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: Wheely couldn’t get out through the small hole they;d made.
(08/28 13:08:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: So, they began to widen it.
(08/28 13:08:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: The bahro in the cave with her grew more aggitated as they dug closer and closer,
(08/28 13:08:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: Chanting…SOmething
(08/28 13:09:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: Explorers and Wheely used what little time was left to deduce that it was saying
(08/28 13:09:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: Noloben.
(08/28 13:09:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: One word
(08/28 13:09:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: Over and over.
(08/28 13:09:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: Finally, the DRC broke through enough to lower someone down
(08/28 13:09:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: And then…
(08/28 13:09:47) DimensionTravelerCalum flinches
(08/28 13:09:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: It happened.
(08/28 13:09:59) goldfish flinches
(08/28 13:09:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: The bahro struck out
(08/28 13:10:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: And wheely was dead.
(08/28 13:10:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: The poor reseng who was being lowered down
(08/28 13:10:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: He…
(08/28 13:10:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: He cried out
(08/28 13:10:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: And begged to be raised again
(08/28 13:10:24) goldfish flinches
(08/28 13:10:30) AlexS cringes
(08/28 13:10:33) Narameh sobs.
(08/28 13:10:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: poor 223
(08/28 13:10:40) goldfish cringes
(08/28 13:10:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: emotionally scarred, but not physically
(08/28 13:10:50) <sniffle> goldfish is sad
(08/28 13:10:56) garden sage is traumatized
(08/28 13:11:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: Engberg begged to be lowered down
(08/28 13:11:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: But the reseng said
(08/28 13:11:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: “She’s gone.”
(08/28 13:11:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: Cate Alexander, the DRC”s funder, who had been there, praying and hoping along with the rest of us
(08/28 13:11:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: Ordered Laxman to set the DRC to a private channel
(08/28 13:11:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: He did so,
(08/28 13:11:51) goldfish needs to relto-out urgently to avoid sadness
(08/28 13:11:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: And we heard no more from there,
(08/28 13:12:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: Not until later
(08/28 13:12:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: Simultaneously to this,
(08/28 13:12:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: We join Sharper in Negilahn
(08/28 13:12:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: He was watching an Urwin
(08/28 13:12:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: Peggy Sue, If I recall
(08/28 13:12:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: Poor thing didn’t know what hit it.
(08/28 13:12:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was dead in a flash.
(08/28 13:12:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: Decapitated
(08/28 13:13:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: But, unlike before
(08/28 13:13:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: the predator was taking meat away from the kill
(08/28 13:13:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: The head
(08/28 13:13:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: A trap?
(08/28 13:13:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: Yes.
(08/28 13:13:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: did sharper follow?
(08/28 13:13:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: it was his only lead.
(08/28 13:13:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: He followed the trail,
(08/28 13:13:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: And found the head abandoned in a clearing.
(08/28 13:13:47) Narameh shudders…
(08/28 13:13:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: And after a few moments of silence
(08/28 13:13:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: It began
(08/28 13:13:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: War
(08/28 13:14:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: Civil war
(08/28 13:14:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: Between bahro.
(08/28 13:14:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: two tried to attack Sharper, but two others saved him
(08/28 13:14:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: When Sharper woke up, he was on relto.
(08/28 13:14:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: And so, on the last day of “scars”
(08/28 13:14:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: MInkata was released
(08/28 13:15:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: And, ironically
(08/28 13:15:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: It’s name fit
(08/28 13:15:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: Nick white said it roughly ment something like
(08/28 13:15:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: Heavily Scarred
(08/28 13:15:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: And so it was.
(08/28 13:15:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: All of us were scarred by this week’s events
(08/28 13:15:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: And we would work our way through it in MInkata.
(08/28 13:16:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: So I’ll close Heritage NIght this week with this.
(08/28 13:16:22) Samoth claps his hands
(08/28 13:16:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: the ending has never been written,
(08/28 13:16:26) Olrick140 claps his hands
(08/28 13:16:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: never will be ,
(08/28 13:16:34) Dutchy claps his hands
(08/28 13:16:36) Narameh claps her hands
(08/28 13:16:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: oh right
(08/28 13:16:42) Narameh claps her hands
(08/28 13:16:42) tommyap claps his hands

(08/28 13:16:49) Shapira claps her hands
(08/28 13:16:49) goldfish ‘s mind is in minkata
(08/28 13:16:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: i tried to end without adding in one last thing…
(08/28 13:16:54) Narameh cheers
(08/28 13:17:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: The Drc set up a small memorial
(08/28 13:17:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: nothing elaborate as this imager
(08/28 13:17:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: But it was simple
(08/28 13:17:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: Flowers and such
(08/28 13:17:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: MIchael ENgberg sat along with us Explorers, mourning wheely and rosette
(08/28 13:17:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: suddenly,
(08/28 13:17:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: He got up,
(08/28 13:17:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: And went off,
(08/28 13:18:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: muttering the name
(08/28 13:18:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: “Dr. Watson
(08/28 13:18:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: As he went.
(08/28 13:18:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: His KI reported him in Descent before it shut off entirely
(08/28 13:18:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: And another council member went mising.
(08/28 13:18:41) garden sage: ooo
(08/28 13:18:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: He wasn’t dead
(08/28 13:18:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: But we didn’t know it.
(08/28 13:18:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: not for sure.
(08/28 13:19:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: we assumed that would be the last we heard from him
(08/28 13:19:17) <sniffle> goldfish is sad
(08/28 13:19:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: that his ending had been written
(08/28 13:19:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: But it wasn’t.
(08/28 13:19:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: It never is.
(08/28 13:19:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: Not by a long shot.
(08/28 13:19:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: So, I’ll close tonight,
(08/28 13:19:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: Please, pay your respects to this imager
