(04/08 11:56:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: hi everyone, can you all hear me ok?
(04/08 11:56:49) Criswell nods his head
(04/08 11:56:56) Alien: no … but i can read your text chat ok
(04/08 11:56:59) Red Dwarf shakes his head
(04/08 11:57:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: first, i’d like to apologize in advance if I have to switch over to HN
(04/08 11:57:04) Rgltr-SR: I can see your text
(04/08 11:57:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: this KI today hasn’t been very reliable,
(04/08 11:57:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: and so, if i suddenly start spouting blank lines,
(04/08 11:57:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: sorry
(04/08 11:57:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: just ignore them any any typos :P
(04/08 11:57:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: heh…
(04/08 11:57:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: right, 3 minutes to go.
(04/08 11:58:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: so, i hope everyone’s having a good easter weekend
(04/08 11:58:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: :)
(04/08 11:58:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: so, right,
(04/08 11:59:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: happy easter everyone,
(04/08 11:59:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: i’m sorry for scheduling it like this
(04/08 11:59:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: but my calendar didn’t have easter marked >_<;;
(04/08 11:59:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: or any holiday for that matter
(04/08 11:59:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: it’s one of those journal ones with all the days listed separately from the actual calendars
(04/08 11:59:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: silly, i know, but…
(04/08 11:59:51) DimensionTravelerCalum shrugs
(04/08 11:59:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: what can you do?
(04/08 11:59:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: okay right
(04/08 12:00:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: so, since we’re about to start
(04/08 12:00:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: i’ll begin with the announcements
(04/08 12:00:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: :)
(04/08 12:00:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: first:
(04/08 12:00:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: “oh dear, where did I put my notes?”
(04/08 12:00:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: if anyone finds a journal with the Payiferen cover on it,
(04/08 12:01:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: or a small, black hand book with the Minkata glyph on it,
(04/08 12:01:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: please bring them to the HN Lost and Found department. :)
(04/08 12:01:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: second!
(04/08 12:01:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: MYSTERIUM AND HN!
(04/08 12:01:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: I’m planning on going to Mysterium this year, and for those that don’t know
(04/08 12:01:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: it’s a Myst convention that’s gone on for years! :)
(04/08 12:02:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: almost 12 now?
(04/08 12:02:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: 13?
(04/08 12:02:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: anyways,
(04/08 12:02:27) Alien would like a european mysterium
(04/08 12:02:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: i’m planning on holding a HN this year AT Mysterium
(04/08 12:02:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: what I’d LIKE to do
(04/08 12:02:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: is have a bunch of favorite memories from everyone
(04/08 12:02:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: all gathered together into this little script
(04/08 12:02:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: that i’d read aloud
(04/08 12:03:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: (and record it and put it online for those that couldn’t be there too!)
(04/08 12:03:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: so, if you’ve got something you’d like to send in
(04/08 12:03:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: my email can be found on the contact us page on the HN website
(04/08 12:03:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: thirdly: Said website
(04/08 12:03:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: the address is http://www.HeritageNight.Wordpress.com
(04/08 12:03:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: and finally:
(04/08 12:04:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: Happy Easter everyone,
(04/08 12:04:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: let’s hope this cycle is as good as the last. :)
(04/08 12:04:29) DimensionTravelerCalum coughs politely as he shuffles his note cards…
(04/08 12:04:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: I’m going to open with how I opened the last HN Cycle,
(04/08 12:04:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: with a quote from someone whose name is a bit smudged on this card :/
(04/08 12:05:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: George…Santyana? santayama?
(04/08 12:05:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: ugh
(04/08 12:05:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: i’ll fix it on the log :P
(04/08 12:05:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: anyways the quote goes like this:
(04/08 12:05:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: those who are not aware of history are doomed to repeat it.
(04/08 12:05:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: that is very much true here in D’ni as it is on the surface.
(04/08 12:06:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: for years, the same cycles have repeated over and over again
(04/08 12:06:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: death and rebirth, death and rebirth.
(04/08 12:06:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: to give you some perspective
(04/08 12:06:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: the Cavern of D’ni was born out of a dying world, whose sun was going critical
(04/08 12:06:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: these people, the Ronay, had this ability to write links to worlds through books
(04/08 12:06:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: one man, the writer of Earth’s descriptive book, lead a group of Ronay through, to this cavern and named it D’ni,
(04/08 12:07:10) Red Dwarf: Santayana btw
(04/08 12:07:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: itself a word meaning “new”
(04/08 12:07:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: thank you Red, :)
(04/08 12:07:37) DimensionTravelerCalum makes the correction on his note card with a red pen
(04/08 12:07:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: so, the D’ni civilization thrived
(04/08 12:08:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: but, as cycles always go,
(04/08 12:08:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: it would not last,
(04/08 12:08:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: thousands of years later,
(04/08 12:08:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: a woman from the surface discovered D’ni
(04/08 12:08:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: and married a man from the Cavern,
(04/08 12:08:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: this man’s friend, named Veovis,
(04/08 12:08:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: was…not too happy about it
(04/08 12:08:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: he killed the cavern with a gas,
(04/08 12:08:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: but still, the D’ni survived
(04/08 12:08:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: seeking refuge in their marvelous ages.
(04/08 12:09:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: The books we use to travel now used to be theirs.
(04/08 12:09:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: Years would pass,
(04/08 12:09:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: families would be born
(04/08 12:09:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: people…would die.
(04/08 12:09:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: the cycles continued
(04/08 12:09:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: and so as D’ni slept, beneath the surface,
(04/08 12:09:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: it called out in it’s dreams
(04/08 12:09:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: reaching out to those who would take part in the next cycle,
(04/08 12:10:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: those people, initially,
(04/08 12:10:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: were those comrpising the D’ni Restoration Foundation, or DRF for short,
(04/08 12:10:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: But you may know them better as the DRC, the D’ni Restoration Council, these days, however
(04/08 12:10:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: heh.
(04/08 12:10:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: things change
(04/08 12:10:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: cycles continue
(04/08 12:10:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: water falls
(04/08 12:11:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: and trees grow.
(04/08 12:11:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: that’s how it goes.
(04/08 12:11:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: death and life.
(04/08 12:11:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: the DRF discovered D’ni,
(04/08 12:11:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: began breathing life into the cavern
(04/08 12:11:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: Dr. Richard Watson gave a very moving speech, but i’ve already taken up so much time with this introduction, quoting it all would be a bit too much
(04/08 12:12:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: so I’ll summarize it,
(04/08 12:12:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: he welcomed us during the official ‘opening’ of D’ni,
(04/08 12:12:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: but when it was still closed to the average person.
(04/08 12:12:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: only those specialized were down here at the time
(04/08 12:12:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: only the qualified
(04/08 12:12:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: but he hoped that would change.
(04/08 12:12:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: and it did.
(04/08 12:13:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: he ended this speech with powerful words:
(04/08 12:13:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: Welcome to D’ni.
(04/08 12:13:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: and, although time has long passed for many of you,
(04/08 12:13:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: i’ll say it again to you all here
(04/08 12:13:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: Welcome to D’ni.
(04/08 12:13:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: welcome indeed.
(04/08 12:14:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: the Cavern was off limits in certain areas
(04/08 12:14:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: as the years rolled on
(04/08 12:14:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: but things were slowly opening
(04/08 12:14:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: the thing many of us then didn’t realize was that the restoration was expensive
(04/08 12:14:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: and under the radar.
(04/08 12:14:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: the highest safety level anyone had around here were hard hats and orange cones.
(04/08 12:14:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: no OSHA
(04/08 12:14:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: just cones and orange horse barriers.
(04/08 12:15:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: it’s funny when you think about it,
(04/08 12:15:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: but look at us here,
(04/08 12:15:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: would ANY government of the world let us be here?
(04/08 12:15:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: if they knew about D’ni?
(04/08 12:15:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: think about all the goings on in the world on this day,
(04/08 12:15:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: over the past week and month,
(04/08 12:16:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: yeah,
(04/08 12:16:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: scary thought, isn’t it?
(04/08 12:16:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: so progress was slow.
(04/08 12:16:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: but, that’s how the cycle goes
(04/08 12:16:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: a DRC Restoration Engineer, Phil “phend” Henderson,
(04/08 12:16:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: was exploring the age of Eder Kemo
(04/08 12:17:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: of which had a door in it,
(04/08 12:17:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: somehow, which at the time was thought impossible, Phil opened it,
(04/08 12:17:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: and he was lost to us for a good while
(04/08 12:17:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: often appearing for short times, before vanishing again for even longer.
(04/08 12:17:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: the DRC were not happy with this,
(04/08 12:17:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: but, what could they do?
(04/08 12:18:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: Phil was slippery.
(04/08 12:18:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: as slippery as a Bahro, I think is appropriate to say.
(04/08 12:18:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: did anyone else hear them screaming just now?
(04/08 12:18:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: heh.
(04/08 12:18:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: speak of the creature and all that.
(04/08 12:18:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: the Bahro….Phil…
(04/08 12:19:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: they were both connected to Yeesha,
(04/08 12:19:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: daughter of Atrus, son of Gehn, son of Aitrus,
(04/08 12:19:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: the cycles go on.
(04/08 12:19:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: i think Yeesha herself knew all too well how the cycles of the universe turn.
(04/08 12:20:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: it’s happened multiple times in her own life, growing up.
(04/08 12:20:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: her brothers, Sirrus and Achenar…
(04/08 12:20:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: her own birth was just shortly before a time of tragedy.
(04/08 12:20:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: of near tragedy, at least.
(04/08 12:20:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: how things would be different if…
(04/08 12:20:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: sorry, I digress.
(04/08 12:21:01) DimensionTravelerCalum shakes his head
(04/08 12:21:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: so, eventually,
(04/08 12:21:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: things changed, as they always do
(04/08 12:21:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: Douglas Sharper,
(04/08 12:21:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: a name with which you are no doubt familiar
(04/08 12:22:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: was one of the first vocal opponents of the DRC
(04/08 12:22:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: despite having worked for them to restore Teledahn
(04/08 12:22:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: and the place that would eventually come to be called Watcher’s.
(04/08 12:22:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: things change.
(04/08 12:22:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sharper knew that well
(04/08 12:22:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: he was a hunter by profession.
(04/08 12:23:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: he knew how to keep a secret or two.
(04/08 12:23:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: it’s only natural that he and Phil hit it off when they later met.
(04/08 12:23:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: they really became fast friends, if you read the old logs.
(04/08 12:24:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: sorry my notes are a bit jumbled up here.
(04/08 12:24:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: trying to sort through them and talk at the same time is a little hard.
(04/08 12:24:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: Ahhem. sometime in 2003,
(04/08 12:24:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: the DRC Opened the Cavern to the public
(04/08 12:24:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: due to increased funding, courtesy of game corp. Ubisoft.
(04/08 12:24:53) DimensionTravelerCalum is a bit upset…
(04/08 12:25:12) DimensionTravelerCalum takes a deep sigh
(04/08 12:25:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: in the eyes of many people
(04/08 12:25:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: this was the start of what is officially dubbed
(04/08 12:25:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: “Prologue”
(04/08 12:25:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: no NDAs were required to come down
(04/08 12:25:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: and information could freely be shared with the surface.
(04/08 12:26:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: soon enough, Phil came out of the cave for the last time.
(04/08 12:26:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: explorers combined efforts with the DRC to get him to the city,
(04/08 12:26:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: Dr. Victor Laxman’s conversation with Phil then…
(04/08 12:27:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: it’s jumpy.
(04/08 12:27:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: and it ended with Phil running off.
(04/08 12:27:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: the DRC, all five members at the time, went searching for him through the city.
(04/08 12:27:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: things were not really going well.
(04/08 12:28:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: tensions grew,
(04/08 12:28:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: and…well,
(04/08 12:28:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: i’m not really sure why,
(04/08 12:28:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: but sides began to form.
(04/08 12:28:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: that’s how the cycle goes.
(04/08 12:28:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: honestly
(04/08 12:28:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: I think Phil was, and still is, crazy
(04/08 12:28:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: all this trouble that was going to crash down on our heads.
(04/08 12:29:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: if he’d just been less cryptic about it all….?
(04/08 12:29:14) DimensionTravelerCalum sighs.
(04/08 12:29:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: things could have gone a lot different.
(04/08 12:29:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: but, as Phil said,
(04/08 12:29:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: that was where our Journey took us.
(04/08 12:29:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: well, I know this is a bit short compared to usual
(04/08 12:29:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: but, hey, it’s Easter,
(04/08 12:30:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: and i’m getting hungry,
(04/08 12:30:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: so, i’m going to end it here,
(04/08 12:30:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: :)
