(02/26 11:58:47) DimensionTravelerCalum sorts out his stuff as he mutters about borky KI’s….
(02/26 11:58:53) SkyDiverZyxia: lol
(02/26 11:59:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: So on my way here, I went to the city, and my KI completely spazzed out
(02/26 11:59:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: Instead of typing letters
(02/26 11:59:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: All it would make was a tab space
(02/26 11:59:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: You know:
(02/26 11:59:23) DimensionTravelerCalum:
(02/26 11:59:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: Like that
(02/26 11:59:26) wlayton27: I don’t know what a main KI is … is that weird?
(02/26 11:59:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: this is my Main KI,
(02/26 11:59:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: It’s the one I use more often
(02/26 11:59:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: HN is a secondary KI
(02/26 11:59:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: Others are third-ary
(02/26 11:59:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: And quarter-ary
(02/26 11:59:55) wlayton27: Oh….
(02/26 11:59:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: :P
(02/26 12:00:01) SkyDiverZyxia roars with laughter
(02/26 12:00:13) wlayton27: I wanted a Main KI too :D
(02/26 12:00:16) karroh: hm..i didn’t realize that could be a case for the ki’s
(02/26 12:00:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: alright,
(02/26 12:00:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: first off
(02/26 12:00:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: Hi!
(02/26 12:00:40) SkyDiverZyxia: hi
(02/26 12:00:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: How is everyone?
(02/26 12:00:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: No problems?
(02/26 12:00:49) KaajaLaroo: good good

(02/26 12:00:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: :)
(02/26 12:01:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: Rightyo!
(02/26 12:01:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: to begin
(02/26 12:01:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: Announcements
(02/26 12:01:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: HN is going on a hiatus for March.
(02/26 12:01:26) SkyDiverZyxia: awww
(02/26 12:01:30) SkyDiverZyxia is sad
(02/26 12:01:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: i’m just completely tuckered out from this last month
(02/26 12:01:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: And it’s not just Cavern life
(02/26 12:01:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: Just surface stuff
(02/26 12:01:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: I need a good month of sunday sleep ins :P
(02/26 12:01:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: Heh,
(02/26 12:01:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: But!
(02/26 12:02:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: That doesn’t mean HN will stop!
(02/26 12:02:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: We still have the Website
(02/26 12:02:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: And the wonderful journal by Ainia
(02/26 12:02:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: both can be found at HeritageNight.Wordpress.com
(02/26 12:02:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: The latter specifically via rel.to/historydoc
(02/26 12:02:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: Also
(02/26 12:02:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: Plans for a Surface HN are in motion!
(02/26 12:02:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: Ever heard of Mysterium?
(02/26 12:03:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: i plan on going there this year,
(02/26 12:03:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: And, I figured
(02/26 12:03:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: Why not!
(02/26 12:03:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: :)
(02/26 12:03:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: It’s still in the planning stages,and I haven’t heard back from the Mysterium committee
(02/26 12:03:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: Yet.
(02/26 12:03:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: But I’m hopful that at the 2012 mysterium, we can have a Heritage Night live!
(02/26 12:03:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: Now
(02/26 12:03:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: Depending on what gets scheduled
(02/26 12:03:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: i have two HN possibilites
(02/26 12:04:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: One is a regular HN
(02/26 12:04:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: Depending on the current schedule
(02/26 12:04:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: The second would be a memory HN
(02/26 12:04:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: Much like the one I did for the Anniversary week
(02/26 12:04:24) Tad bows
(02/26 12:04:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: I’ll be doing a poll later on
(02/26 12:04:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: To see which one is more popular
(02/26 12:04:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: So be sure to keep an eye out on our website for it!
(02/26 12:05:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: I’m sure by now you all know about the snackage and the drinkage this event has
(02/26 12:05:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: :P
(02/26 12:05:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: So I’m not going to say anymore than that they’re in the usual places
(02/26 12:05:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: Heh.
(02/26 12:05:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: Also!
(02/26 12:05:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: A quick plan is to hold Music during HN in future rounds!
(02/26 12:05:48) SkyDiverZyxia: :)
(02/26 12:05:56) moose 2: nice
(02/26 12:06:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: Again, I’ll put a poll up and see what kind of music people prefer
(02/26 12:06:00) karroh claps her hands
(02/26 12:06:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: Now then
(02/26 12:06:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: to finish off announcements
(02/26 12:06:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: A Public Service Announcement:
(02/26 12:06:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: recently i’ve learned that one explorer in particular continues to make slanderous videos
(02/26 12:06:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: If any of you haave youtube accounts, and you come across any videos slandering ANY explorer in Cavern
(02/26 12:06:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: Be sure to flag them!!
(02/26 12:07:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: They’re often times unfair to the explorers represented within them
(02/26 12:07:23) wlayton27: Grimhilde still at it?
(02/26 12:07:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: And the person making them is often manipulating the facts to outright lying about events
(02/26 12:07:29) moose 2: thats a shame
(02/26 12:07:31) SkyDiverZyxia: yep
(02/26 12:07:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: Yes, sadly. :/
(02/26 12:07:37) Boywhith: give us the name of that griefer, please…
(02/26 12:07:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: Grimhilde and grimhilde2
(02/26 12:07:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: If you run into her.
(02/26 12:07:51) Boywhith: But I am afraid I know it already…
(02/26 12:07:51) karroh: oh great
(02/26 12:07:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: I’m usually not one to give names like this
(02/26 12:08:00) karroh: i’ve seen her a lot lately
(02/26 12:08:00) Boywhith: yes, indeed.
(02/26 12:08:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: But she’s really pressing my buttons! :|
(02/26 12:08:08) Criswell: fraugrimhild (without the e) on youtube dare i say
(02/26 12:08:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: but, with that sour note,
(02/26 12:08:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: I seem to think it’s fitting that we begin the last week of the second restoration.
(02/26 12:08:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: You see
(02/26 12:08:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: This week was something we were dreading
(02/26 12:09:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: Many of us saw it as a “Season finale” of sorts
(02/26 12:09:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: We were expecting something to happen,
(02/26 12:09:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: And by golly
(02/26 12:09:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: It did.
(02/26 12:09:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: Cate Alexander, the funding soruce for the restoration,
(02/26 12:09:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: Announced that she was leaving.
(02/26 12:10:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: Pulling her funding too.
(02/26 12:10:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: She wasn’t getting the “Return” she had been expecting
(02/26 12:10:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: I have to say
(02/26 12:10:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: In hindsight,
(02/26 12:10:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: I’m not sad to see her go.
(02/26 12:10:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: But also, in hindsight
(02/26 12:10:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: It’s annoying that she left because, essentially, we pushed her away
(02/26 12:11:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: the restoration was always costly
(02/26 12:11:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: Even in the early days
(02/26 12:11:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: And if Cate wasn’t getting her potential return through Advertizing, something explorers despised,
(02/26 12:11:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: She was going to leave
(02/26 12:11:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: And so she did
(02/26 12:11:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: nick white said that she was always in it for the money.
(02/26 12:11:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: An explorer, Thend, even made a comical KI-Toon,
(02/26 12:12:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: Involving explorers forming a Dollar Sign to get her attention.
(02/26 12:12:16) DimensionTravelerCalum shakes his head
(02/26 12:12:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: We’d just lost our source of funding,
(02/26 12:12:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: And yet, somehow,
(02/26 12:12:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: we knew it was the end,
(02/26 12:12:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: Despite the DRC’s sayings that they could get more in the future.
(02/26 12:13:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: The week was hectic
(02/26 12:13:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: Ahnonay, an age of Guild Master Kadish’s,
(02/26 12:13:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: Was released
(02/26 12:13:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: And while we went through the rounds of his “time travel” experiment
(02/26 12:14:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: things deteriorated.
(02/26 12:14:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: It’s hard to look back at this week fondly
(02/26 12:14:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: Not much happened at first,
(02/26 12:14:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: Cate was leaving, Ahnonay was released
(02/26 12:14:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: Just another day in the cavern.
(02/26 12:15:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: it’s a lot to remember
(02/26 12:15:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: but, somehow,
(02/26 12:15:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: Some things remain sharp as day.
(02/26 12:15:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: Even if the events leading up to it are free for debate
(02/26 12:15:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: The Bahro War arrived in the Cavern
(02/26 12:15:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: Wings flapping
(02/26 12:15:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: Screams of pain and war
(02/26 12:15:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: Death and life
(02/26 12:16:03) DimensionTravelerCalum shudders
(02/26 12:16:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: It’s terrifying.
(02/26 12:16:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: Bahro had arrived not only in the main city instance
(02/26 12:16:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: But also in ALL Hood instances.
(02/26 12:16:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: They were swarming the arch!
(02/26 12:16:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: Dive bombing people in the city!
(02/26 12:16:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: The…the whole sight of it…
(02/26 12:17:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: Many of us chose to wear our Yeesha Shirts on that day,
(02/26 12:17:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: As we just…stared
(02/26 12:17:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: Just. Stared.
(02/26 12:17:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: At them.
(02/26 12:17:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: You may have seen re-creations via videos
(02/26 12:17:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: Or via hologram projections thanks to fun house.
(02/26 12:17:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: But…
(02/26 12:17:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: But being there
(02/26 12:17:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: Right there
(02/26 12:17:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: When they were real
(02/26 12:17:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: Alive
(02/26 12:17:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: Not just simulations.
(02/26 12:18:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: It’s terrifying.
(02/26 12:18:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: “Bahro are deadly creatures
(02/26 12:18:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: “They can kill in a flash
(02/26 12:18:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: “You could be staring at your own headless body before you even realize you were dead.”
(02/26 12:18:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: These were the things we were thinking.
(02/26 12:19:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: We wore our shirts in hopes that they would protect us.
(02/26 12:19:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: We wore them in hopes that we could show that we were united.
(02/26 12:19:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: Even so
(02/26 12:19:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: We were still fractured,
(02/26 12:19:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: Across hood instances
(02/26 12:19:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: And cowering in sharper’s spy room
(02/26 12:20:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: We were afraid.
(02/26 12:20:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: I make no doubts,
(02/26 12:20:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: I was scared too.
(02/26 12:20:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: This…this sight
(02/26 12:20:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: Of Bahro flying
(02/26 12:20:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: Attacking
(02/26 12:20:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: killing
(02/26 12:20:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: It’s something you can never forget.
(02/26 12:20:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: in the end
(02/26 12:20:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: We were still hiding in our ages.
(02/26 12:21:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: In Ahnonay,
(02/26 12:21:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: We reached the end
(02/26 12:21:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: We gained our rewards:
(02/26 12:21:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: A link, to K’veer,
(02/26 12:21:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: A half of a ring wedge,
(02/26 12:21:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: And a hope
(02/26 12:21:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: That maybe we could be safe.
(02/26 12:21:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: The Public instance of K’veer was jammed packed.
(02/26 12:22:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: everyone sat and stared out of the window,
(02/26 12:22:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: Waiting for the Bahro to leave
(02/26 12:22:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: It’s funny,
(02/26 12:22:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: But at that distance, you couldn’t see them.
(02/26 12:22:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: Couldn’t hear them.
(02/26 12:22:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: K’veer was a ‘safe’ place
(02/26 12:22:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: So we gathered
(02/26 12:22:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: We waited
(02/26 12:22:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: We prayed.
(02/26 12:23:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC announced the winners of the Great Zero stained glass project
(02/26 12:23:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: In hopes of maintaining normality.
(02/26 12:23:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: It did little to console us.
(02/26 12:23:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: We prepared ourselves,
(02/26 12:23:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: As Bahro gathered in other places
(02/26 12:23:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: We prayed we would be safe.
(02/26 12:24:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: we clung to the Deception that now had been long shattered
(02/26 12:24:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: Cracks in a wall
(02/26 12:24:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: here we were
(02/26 12:24:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: Gathered around each other in one room.
(02/26 12:24:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: Much like we are now
(02/26 12:24:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: And then…
(02/26 12:24:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: Something happened.
(02/26 12:24:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: A Bahro
(02/26 12:24:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: A single,
(02/26 12:24:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: Lone,
(02/26 12:24:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: Bahro
(02/26 12:25:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: Appeared in K’veer
(02/26 12:25:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: Explorers were tense
(02/26 12:25:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: Was it a bad one?
(02/26 12:25:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: Was it a good one?
(02/26 12:25:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: We couldn’t tell
(02/26 12:25:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: They ALL have blue eyes.
(02/26 12:25:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: The Bahro wandered around
(02/26 12:25:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: And then, in the middle of the room that had once served as Atrus’ prison
(02/26 12:26:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: He placed a stand,
(02/26 12:26:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: Summoning it out of some DRC storage locker
(02/26 12:26:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: it just appeared
(02/26 12:26:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: Smack dab in the center of the room.
(02/26 12:26:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: And on that stand
(02/26 12:26:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: Was a book.
(02/26 12:26:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: It’s grey cover is familiar to all
(02/26 12:26:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: The lettering on it’s spine is unmistakable.
(02/26 12:26:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: Opening it up,
(02/26 12:27:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: You all see something we only glimpsed once through a game
(02/26 12:27:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: Myst Island.
(02/26 12:27:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sure, it’s just the library
(02/26 12:27:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: But we were shocked.
(02/26 12:27:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: it was myst island,
(02/26 12:27:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: How could it be there?
(02/26 12:27:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: How did a BAHRO of all of the universes’ creatures
(02/26 12:28:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: How did a Bahro have a book there?
(02/26 12:28:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: How did he have it?
(02/26 12:28:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: We just stared.
(02/26 12:28:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: Some un-easy about the book’s presence
(02/26 12:28:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: was it a trap?
(02/26 12:28:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: No. No trap.
(02/26 12:28:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: soon enough,
(02/26 12:28:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: those of us in K’veer
(02/26 12:29:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: Were host to someone who, for the longest time,
(02/26 12:29:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: Had only seen in hologram.
(02/26 12:29:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: her red hair is familiar
(02/26 12:29:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: Her blue eyes are wise
(02/26 12:29:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: And the tattoo on her face practically spelled it out
(02/26 12:29:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: Yeesha.
(02/26 12:29:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: it was Yeesha
(02/26 12:29:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: She was accompanied by two Bahro
(02/26 12:29:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: I was on the surface when this happened
(02/26 12:30:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: Having been dragged away by some other obligations,
(02/26 12:30:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: But I would have been there if I could have
(02/26 12:30:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: What she said…
(02/26 12:30:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: Not many can find easily.
(02/26 12:30:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: you’ll have to look hard for it, if you want to find it now
(02/26 12:30:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: Long buried under years of internet logs and forum posts.
(02/26 12:31:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: She told us that Destruction was upon us
(02/26 12:31:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: We had to find a way
(02/26 12:31:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: Make a home,
(02/26 12:31:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: The dark side of the Bahro…
(02/26 12:31:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: They were lead by a single Bahro,
(02/26 12:31:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: Whose left shoulder had been skinned in a lab,
(02/26 12:31:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: somewhere on Noloben, years ago,
(02/26 12:32:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: Esher, a man with you you may regard fondly with despise,
(02/26 12:32:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: Tortured this Bahro, took his skin
(02/26 12:32:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: And used it for his own purposes,
(02/26 12:32:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: Linking at will.
(02/26 12:32:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: Yeesha told us that the Bahro war was instigated by free will
(02/26 12:32:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: The dark side chose to destroy
(02/26 12:33:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: Just for destruction’s sake.
(02/26 12:33:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: They chose to do bad
(02/26 12:33:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: Simply because they COULD.
(02/26 12:33:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: The war was nothing but unnecessary
(02/26 12:33:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: And yet…
(02/26 12:33:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: It continued on
(02/26 12:33:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: Yeesha told us she carried something that they all sought to take.
(02/26 12:34:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: We’ve theorized that it could be her daughter
(02/26 12:34:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: Or the piece of skin the Bahro leader had lost.
(02/26 12:34:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: Either way
(02/26 12:34:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: She was thanking this…object away,
(02/26 12:34:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: And she would run
(02/26 12:34:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: She would keep destruction at bay for as long as she could.
(02/26 12:34:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: she wasn’t sure if it would be weeks
(02/26 12:34:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: Or days,
(02/26 12:34:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: We’ve had years
(02/26 12:34:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: years now,
(02/26 12:34:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: She’s run.
(02/26 12:35:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: She’s run for our sake,
(02/26 12:35:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: And what do we have to show for it?
(02/26 12:35:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: Our home.
(02/26 12:35:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: We’re still finding our way
(02/26 12:35:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: But we
(02/26 12:35:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: we have DONE what she’s asked
(02/26 12:35:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: We’ve made our home,
(02/26 12:35:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: When destruction comes, she warned, we need to be ready
(02/26 12:35:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: Ready for what?
(02/26 12:35:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: Destruction.
(02/26 12:36:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: Obviously.
(02/26 12:36:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: But ready how?
(02/26 12:36:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: We still don’t know.
(02/26 12:36:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: She told us that, if things went well,
(02/26 12:36:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: She would return and give us aid.
(02/26 12:36:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: If not….
(02/26 12:36:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: You get the idea.
(02/26 12:36:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: We sit here tonight
(02/26 12:36:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: Still thanking Yeesha
(02/26 12:36:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: She linked away
(02/26 12:36:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: And the Bahro in the city immediately left.
(02/26 12:37:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: the war was being pulled away from us like iron following a magnet
(02/26 12:37:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: And so we stand,
(02/26 12:37:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: Waiting for a return.
(02/26 12:37:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: That’s how all cycles go.
(02/26 12:37:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC left
(02/26 12:37:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: Seeking funding for the cavern
(02/26 12:38:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: And months later, the Explorers all left,
(02/26 12:38:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: Deciding that they would help by not staying
(02/26 12:38:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: By giving the good Bahro a fighting chance.
(02/26 12:38:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: So they wouldn’t have to be babysitting us,
(02/26 12:38:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: So that they could be free to help and to fight as they wished.
(02/26 12:38:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: Many of us stayed, of course,
(02/26 12:39:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: And, as I retold at the anniversary week,
(02/26 12:39:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: We experimented
(02/26 12:39:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: We tried to find our way.
(02/26 12:39:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: Eventually
(02/26 12:39:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: In February of 2010
(02/26 12:39:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC returned, said they didn’t care if we were here or not
(02/26 12:39:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: And said, pretty much,
(02/26 12:39:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: That they were just explorers now too.
(02/26 12:40:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: Carl Palmner, the original founder of Heritage Night
(02/26 12:40:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: Says that there is no great URU without reason,
(02/26 12:40:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: This is the THIRD Great Uru,
(02/26 12:40:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: There is no restoration
(02/26 12:40:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: And yet
(02/26 12:40:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: Here we stand
(02/26 12:40:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: Uniting,
(02/26 12:40:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: exploring
(02/26 12:40:52) karroh cheers
(02/26 12:40:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: Having fun
(02/26 12:40:58) Lauritz cheers
(02/26 12:41:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: Yeesha’s words still haunts us
(02/26 12:41:04) Criswell claps his hands
(02/26 12:41:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: There are friends and enemies,
(02/26 12:41:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: But we stand here,
(02/26 12:41:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: Finding our way
(02/26 12:41:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: our journey began years ago
(02/26 12:41:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: But many of us only now understand,
(02/26 12:41:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: We can read between the lines now,
(02/26 12:41:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: We can see what wishes to remain in the dark,
(02/26 12:42:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: And we flow downwards
(02/26 12:42:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: Always downwards,
(02/26 12:42:11) Betwinder claps his hands
(02/26 12:42:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: Just like the stream in the cleft.
(02/26 12:42:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: We left in 2008
(02/26 12:42:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: And returned in 2010
(02/26 12:42:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: It’s now 2012
(02/26 12:42:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: And the cycle continues,
(02/26 12:42:47) NoorMax: And we’re still here!
(02/26 12:42:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: We wait for the day when the light will shine down on us,
(02/26 12:42:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: Illuminating the future path that we all wish to take
(02/26 12:43:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: But for now, even blindly stumbling around in the dark
(02/26 12:43:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: Yes, Max,
(02/26 12:43:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: We’re all still here.
(02/26 12:43:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: We’re here
(02/26 12:43:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: We’re finding our way
(02/26 12:43:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: And we’re making our home.
(02/26 12:43:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: We’re here, in D’ni, to stay
(02/26 12:43:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: Our paths guide us where we are destined to go.
(02/26 12:44:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: and we return
(02/26 12:44:23) DimensionTravelerCalum grins
(02/26 12:44:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: Alright,
(02/26 12:44:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: I think i’ve rambled on enough for one night
(02/26 12:44:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: ^^;
(02/26 12:44:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: thank you all for coming, everyone
(02/26 12:44:47) Boywhith: good spoken, Calum!
(02/26 12:44:48) DimensionTravelerCalum bows
(02/26 12:44:50) karroh claps her hands
