(05/06 12:01:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: It’s heritagenight.wordpress.com
(05/06 12:01:55) DimensionTravelerCalum grins
(05/06 12:02:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: And …
(05/06 12:02:05) DimensionTravelerCalum gets handed a piece of paper…
(05/06 12:02:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: What’s this?
(05/06 12:02:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: Hmm
(05/06 12:02:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: Seems someone’s left their boat untied down at the docks
(05/06 12:02:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: Would the owner of the boat tied in slot 1025 please go tie it down?
(05/06 12:02:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: It’s starting to drift out into the lake.
(05/06 12:02:44) Heart: Lol
(05/06 12:02:46) CandiColette: lol
(05/06 12:03:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: :)
(05/06 12:03:06) Fil: is that the one lying at the bottom?
(05/06 12:03:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: Finally
(05/06 12:03:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: I’d like to thank those of you who have donated over the last two weeks
(05/06 12:03:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: we’ve gotten the CavCon meter back up to 4!
(05/06 12:03:39) Heart claps her hands
(05/06 12:03:41) Philious sold his
(05/06 12:03:42) DimensionTravelerCalum cheers
(05/06 12:03:43) Heart: Need 5 though
(05/06 12:03:46) Iden0 claps his hands
(05/06 12:03:47) canadiangirl cheers
(05/06 12:03:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: True, but we’re out of the…
(05/06 12:03:54) Heart: I have NEVER seen it at 5
(05/06 12:03:55) DimensionTravelerCalum cues music
(05/06 12:03:56) GiGi. says hey
(05/06 12:03:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: “Danger Zone!”
(05/06 12:03:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: :P
(05/06 12:04:00) Heart: Yeah true
(05/06 12:04:08) DimensionTravelerCalum giggles at his little joke there…
(05/06 12:04:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: On that lighter note
(05/06 12:04:21) Fil cringes
(05/06 12:04:21) Elmer Thud has only ever seen 2 and 4
(05/06 12:04:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: I think it’s time we begin tonight’s HN,
(05/06 12:04:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: and speaking of lighter notes
(05/06 12:04:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: That’s exactly what this week was
(05/06 12:04:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: “A New Light”
(05/06 12:04:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: As it’s come to be called,
(05/06 12:06:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: ^^;
(05/06 12:06:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: Indeed
(05/06 12:06:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: Lighter notes are the things that keep us going
(05/06 12:06:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: Even if they follow or are followed by dark spots
(05/06 12:06:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: The light spots are what keep us motivated,
(05/06 12:06:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: And so,
(05/06 12:06:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: After…the death of Willow Engberg and Rosette Taylor,
(05/06 12:07:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: And the revelation that the Bahro were at war?
(05/06 12:07:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: This week began indeed with a lighter note
(05/06 12:07:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: The Great Zero had finally passed it’s first stage of calibration
(05/06 12:07:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: And was ready to be activated
(05/06 12:07:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: To celebrate
(05/06 12:07:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: Marker missions could now be created by explorers
(05/06 12:08:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: And…
(05/06 12:08:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: On that first day
(05/06 12:08:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: We went absolutely crazy with the things
(05/06 12:08:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: there’s a 1000 limit for marker missions,
(05/06 12:08:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: And we…
(05/06 12:08:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: Just…
(05/06 12:08:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: Painted whole ages in these white little bubbles
(05/06 12:08:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: I’ve seen Relto huts flooded with the things
(05/06 12:09:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: really
(05/06 12:09:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: But the markers served a more…
(05/06 12:09:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: practical purpose
(05/06 12:09:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: We could bring light to the dark,
(05/06 12:09:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: Also, around this time,
(05/06 12:10:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: The KI machine in the Descent location began to function
(05/06 12:10:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: well
(05/06 12:10:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: More than it had before
(05/06 12:10:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: It now lasted a whole minute!
(05/06 12:10:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: And as I say this, i suddenly remember that Descent wasn’t released this week
(05/06 12:10:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: alright
(05/06 12:10:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: Who shuffled my note cards again?
(05/06 12:10:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: :/
(05/06 12:11:01) DimensionTravelerCalum sighs
(05/06 12:11:11) CandiColette: lol
(05/06 12:11:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: I swear, these things get so messed up…!
(05/06 12:11:16) Fil shuffles nervously
(05/06 12:11:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: Right
(05/06 12:11:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: Moving along
(05/06 12:11:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: Explorers were giddy with the prospect of mapping ages with markers
(05/06 12:11:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: But…
(05/06 12:11:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: Some felt…
(05/06 12:11:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: Wronged.
(05/06 12:12:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: They felt as if all their hard work towards calibrating the Great Zero had gone to waste
(05/06 12:12:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: That the DRC were simply waiting for the right time to just
(05/06 12:12:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: “Flip a switch”
(05/06 12:12:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: And BAM
(05/06 12:12:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: On things went
(05/06 12:12:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: This attitude…
(05/06 12:12:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: Hurt us more than you may realize.
(05/06 12:13:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: I’ll explain more later
(05/06 12:13:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: But…
(05/06 12:13:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: It’s a sour note in an otherwise bright spot.
(05/06 12:13:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: And so the day came
(05/06 12:13:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: The Great Zero plaza was crowded with explorers
(05/06 12:13:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: each in their own hood instance of the place
(05/06 12:14:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: In my own hood
(05/06 12:14:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: Uru Obsession
(05/06 12:14:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: We had up to 200 people there at the time
(05/06 12:14:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: Maybe over that
(05/06 12:14:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: It.
(05/06 12:14:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: Was.
(05/06 12:14:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: A.
(05/06 12:14:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: Mud pit.
(05/06 12:14:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: To borrow some clever phrasing from Heart here. ;)
(05/06 12:14:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: Hehe…
(05/06 12:15:00) Heart: :)
(05/06 12:15:06) CandiColette: lol
(05/06 12:15:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: Personally, you could barely find your way from one place to another
(05/06 12:15:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: not without running into someone
(05/06 12:15:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: but
(05/06 12:15:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: I wouldn’t have traded that day for the world
(05/06 12:15:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: The sight of everyone standing there
(05/06 12:15:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: On the steps
(05/06 12:15:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: Just…
(05/06 12:15:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: Watching?
(05/06 12:15:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: there’s nothing better than that.
(05/06 12:16:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: Then there was a spark
(05/06 12:16:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: A hum…
(05/06 12:16:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: And a ZAP
(05/06 12:16:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: And then the Great Zero began spitting out it;s blue beam…
(05/06 12:16:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: And then it began to spin.
(05/06 12:16:32) moose 2’s bff: oooooh ahhhhhhh
(05/06 12:16:43) CandiColette: yep
(05/06 12:16:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: there’s a video of it somewhere
(05/06 12:16:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: On the Guild of Greeters website, I believe,
(05/06 12:16:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: But i’m not sure exactly where
(05/06 12:17:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: But it was a moment
(05/06 12:17:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: And it was the second of that week’s many new lights
(05/06 12:17:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: Soon enough, the Watcher’s Sanctuary— Erm…
(05/06 12:17:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: Watcher’s Pub
(05/06 12:17:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: Was released.
(05/06 12:18:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: Many of us had been there before
(05/06 12:18:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: When it was still in the yellow paint that had been put there by Sharper’s hand,
(05/06 12:18:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: This was formerly the “Great Tree Pub”
(05/06 12:18:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: Then
(05/06 12:18:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: “Watcher’s Sanctuary”
(05/06 12:18:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: And now
(05/06 12:18:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: “Watcher’s Pub”
(05/06 12:19:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: The name changes make sense in context
(05/06 12:19:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: But it still bugs me to this day
(05/06 12:19:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: Even though the DRC had…somewhat forgiven Sharper for his actions in 2003,
(05/06 12:19:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: It still seemed to me that they were trying to distance themselves from that time
(05/06 12:19:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: They’d panted the walls blue for crying out loud!
(05/06 12:19:57) CandiColette: lol
(05/06 12:20:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: you could practically SMELL the paint fumes
(05/06 12:20:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: It’…
(05/06 12:20:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: Well,
(05/06 12:20:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: Putting all that aside
(05/06 12:20:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: Watcher’s was a place that would be fairly popular for events over the next few months
(05/06 12:20:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: Dance parties held “Under the roots” would occur,
(05/06 12:21:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: The place was certainly a place for gathering,
(05/06 12:21:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: But, these are all future events,
(05/06 12:21:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: Much like some of the…
(05/06 12:21:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: Incidents that would occur later on.
(05/06 12:21:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: So,
(05/06 12:21:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: The pub was released
(05/06 12:21:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: The Explorers gathered
(05/06 12:21:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: And waited
(05/06 12:21:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: We had access to the five Watcher’s Words books
(05/06 12:22:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: But the number plates we’d come to expect to be scattered all over the place had been removed.
(05/06 12:22:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: You can still see where the walls don’t quite match up because of that.
(05/06 12:22:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: Was the puzzle that we had once solved no longer there?
(05/06 12:22:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: In a sense
(05/06 12:22:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: Yes
(05/06 12:22:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: The door to the Tree was sealed
(05/06 12:22:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: Broken by the scream all those months ago now.
(05/06 12:23:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC had yet to fix it,
(05/06 12:23:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: But, we knew that they would…
(05/06 12:23:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: Hah.
(05/06 12:23:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: If only things had worked out that way.
(05/06 12:23:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC’s funding source, Cate Alexander,
(05/06 12:23:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: Had appeared at one time in Watchers
(05/06 12:23:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: And broached the subject of advertisement
(05/06 12:24:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: Little things like images in the KI,
(05/06 12:24:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: but,
(05/06 12:24:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: The explorers…
(05/06 12:24:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: They…
(05/06 12:24:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: No
(05/06 12:24:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: We didn’t want anything to do with it.
(05/06 12:24:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: some over reacted with “We don’t want no stinking billboards!”
(05/06 12:24:59) Fil: “eat at Kadish”
(05/06 12:25:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: Even Marie Sutherland, who was normally opposed to such things,
(05/06 12:25:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: was OK with it in a sense
(05/06 12:25:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: She knew the restoration was expensive
(05/06 12:25:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: Something that everyone had seemed to have forgotten
(05/06 12:25:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: This had been a concern since day one
(05/06 12:25:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: Especially back when…
(05/06 12:26:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: Back in the days before the first restoration ended.
(05/06 12:26:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: Back when the 5 DRC members had all been there
(05/06 12:26:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: And now…
(05/06 12:26:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: We had two missing?
(05/06 12:26:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: indeed, Dr. Watson had vanished at the end of the first restoraion
(05/06 12:26:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: And Michael Engberg…
(05/06 12:26:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: Well
(05/06 12:27:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: he had disappeared soon after His daughter had died.
(05/06 12:27:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: So here we were
(05/06 12:27:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: Being confronted with advertising…
(05/06 12:27:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: And we were rejecting it~
(05/06 12:27:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: Funding is always an issue
(05/06 12:28:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: Even fairly inactive ones like this current one have funding issues
(05/06 12:28:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: All of the money that makes this current “restoration” possible is all donated.
(05/06 12:28:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: remember me mentioning the CavCon meter?
(05/06 12:28:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: We didn’t have that back then
(05/06 12:28:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: But maybe if we had…?
(05/06 12:29:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: Maybes don’t help with the past however.
(05/06 12:29:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: So we were confronted with the advertising possibility of funding
(05/06 12:29:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: And we rejected it.
(05/06 12:29:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: The fools we were.
(05/06 12:29:45) DimensionTravelerCalum takes a deep sigh
(05/06 12:29:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: So Er’cana, the food harvest age, was released
(05/06 12:30:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was designed in years past
(05/06 12:30:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: To make pellets
(05/06 12:30:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: To feed the lake
(05/06 12:30:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: The age had been handled at one point by Guild Master Kadish
(05/06 12:30:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: Who had placed himself in D’ni Culture as “The Grower” mentioned in the watcher’s words,
(05/06 12:30:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: But you see,
(05/06 12:30:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: The words also mentioned another person
(05/06 12:31:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: A Deceiver
(05/06 12:31:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: And that was Kadish
(05/06 12:31:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: He had three things commissioned, of sorts
(05/06 12:31:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: two ages and a puzzle
(05/06 12:31:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: To prove that he was the watcher
(05/06 12:31:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: “To light the cavern”- Er’cana
(05/06 12:31:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: “To travel through time”- Ahnonay
(05/06 12:31:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: And finally
(05/06 12:32:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: Access to the Great tree
(05/06 12:32:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: He had the puzzle now locked behind that door made
(05/06 12:32:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: And he was the ONLY one that could solve it
(05/06 12:32:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: After all
(05/06 12:32:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: He had made it.
(05/06 12:32:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: Er’cana was retrofitted with ovens to make pellets that would feed the algae in the lake
(05/06 12:32:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: To make it grow
(05/06 12:32:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: to make it glow
(05/06 12:32:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: To make it return to it’s once living state
(05/06 12:33:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: As, even back then before the Fall of D”ni
(05/06 12:33:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: The lake was dying.
(05/06 12:33:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: It’s ironic in hindsight
(05/06 12:33:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: Kadish’s plans to make himself the grower had inadvertently given us the supplies and means of doing what he could not.
(05/06 12:33:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: Lighting the lake
(05/06 12:34:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC said that we could use the pellets produced in er’cana for lighting the lake,
(05/06 12:34:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: And bringing it back to life
(05/06 12:34:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: Of course, they said it would take months and years
(05/06 12:34:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: Not days and weeks
(05/06 12:34:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: But those explorers who had felt wronged by the Great Zero…
(05/06 12:34:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: They…
(05/06 12:34:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: Felt otherwise.
(05/06 12:34:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: They thought that just like the GZ
(05/06 12:35:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: They could “Flip a switch” or “Drop a super pellet” into the lake
(05/06 12:35:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: And BAM
(05/06 12:35:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: light.
(05/06 12:35:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: they even went so far as to SCOLD other people
(05/06 12:35:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: who wanted to do the pellet feeding,
(05/06 12:35:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: Discouraged them from doing so.
(05/06 12:35:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: the DRC however were expecting a steady increase of pellets
(05/06 12:35:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: So that they could make a chart
(05/06 12:36:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: To show how long it would take to light the lake
(05/06 12:36:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: But the wouldn’t get their answers
(05/06 12:36:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: Nobody would get into it
(05/06 12:36:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: Even with the incentive of Pellet scores on the KI?
(05/06 12:36:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: Nope.
(05/06 12:36:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: Nada.
(05/06 12:36:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: zip
(05/06 12:36:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: zero degrees Dereno
(05/06 12:37:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: It wasn’t enough
(05/06 12:37:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: And people didn’t do what was right
(05/06 12:37:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: We had been presented a light
(05/06 12:37:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: And, like before,
(05/06 12:37:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: We rejected it.
(05/06 12:37:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: I’m reminded of watcher’s words,
(05/06 12:37:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: There’s a line
(05/06 12:37:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: That goes something like
(05/06 12:37:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: “Wait in the light”
(05/06 12:37:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: But we were rejecting the light
(05/06 12:37:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: We wouldn’t wait.
(05/06 12:37:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: Why?
(05/06 12:38:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: Because we were being dumb
(05/06 12:38:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: And stupid
(05/06 12:38:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: And we were ignoring the things we had learned in the past
(05/06 12:38:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: The death of Wheeley and Rose,
(05/06 12:38:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: The bahro war?
(05/06 12:38:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: We’d put it all behind us.
(05/06 12:38:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: Ignoring it
(05/06 12:38:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: Like we had back in 2003,
(05/06 12:38:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: We treated it as a game.
(05/06 12:39:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: like the DRC could do anything they wanted to.
(05/06 12:39:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: And …
(05/06 12:39:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: It would come back to bite us.
(05/06 12:39:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: years later,
(05/06 12:39:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: the lake STILL isn’t lit,
(05/06 12:39:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: Not to it’s day night cycle
(05/06 12:39:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: We don’t have a chart
(05/06 12:39:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: We don’t have the right numbers,
(05/06 12:40:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: but we know we must wait
(05/06 12:40:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: Waiting is the only thing we can do.
(05/06 12:40:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: but still,
(05/06 12:40:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: Some of us were impatient back then.
(05/06 12:40:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: Er’cana had a shell puzzle
(05/06 12:40:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: A portal that would appear,
(05/06 12:40:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: And inside
(05/06 12:41:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: A cave with a ring
(05/06 12:41:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: But…oddly
(05/06 12:41:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: We couldn’t see a thing in there!
(05/06 12:41:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was pitch black!
(05/06 12:41:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: Now what made it like this to begin with
(05/06 12:41:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: Or what eventually fixed it I do not know
(05/06 12:41:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: But our impatience actually embraced a light in this case
(05/06 12:41:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: Remember the KI light I’d mentioned before?
(05/06 12:42:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: Some of us were clever
(05/06 12:42:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: We set the cloth to next to the portal
(05/06 12:42:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: We went to descent
(05/06 12:42:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: Grabbed the KI light
(05/06 12:42:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: Relto’d
(05/06 12:42:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: cloth linked
(05/06 12:42:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: Portal’d
(05/06 12:42:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: And then with the flickering KI light remaining
(05/06 12:42:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: We would run forward towards that wall to find the shell icon
(05/06 12:42:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: And we would have our ring piece.
(05/06 12:42:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: Quite clever we were, eh?
(05/06 12:43:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: Using a light that we already found useful to our advantage?
(05/06 12:43:20) CandiColette: yes
(05/06 12:43:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: As I said
(05/06 12:43:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: Eventually the cave was
(05/06 12:43:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: ‘fixed’
(05/06 12:43:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: And we could see again
(05/06 12:43:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: Getting rid of the need for the light
(05/06 12:43:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: But it makes me wonder,
(05/06 12:44:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: How we could find the work around for it?
(05/06 12:44:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: But we were so blind to everything else?
(05/06 12:44:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: Some of us were blinded in another way
(05/06 12:44:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: While most of us had worked past wheeley’s death,
(05/06 12:44:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: Others, like Douglas Sharper,
(05/06 12:44:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: Were mad,
(05/06 12:44:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: Raging,
(05/06 12:44:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: Still at the concept of her death.
(05/06 12:45:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sharper himself had arranged for a survey trip to Noloben by the DRC’s own insistence,
(05/06 12:45:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: But Sharper…
(05/06 12:45:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: He wanted to hunt down the Bahro that killed wheeley,
(05/06 12:45:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC were concerned when they found out
(05/06 12:45:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: And INSISTED that he was only to do recon,
(05/06 12:45:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: We all know how that turned out however…
(05/06 12:46:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: You couldn’t convince Sharper to do something he had his heart set on.
(05/06 12:46:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: Oh he’s a good man,
(05/06 12:46:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: We all get carried away from time to time
(05/06 12:46:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: Now just imagine if wheeley was somone you had known personally
(05/06 12:46:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: Not just someone who was an acquaintence,
(05/06 12:47:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: now imagine if you had been somewhere else when she had died
(05/06 12:47:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: Much like Sharper was…
(05/06 12:47:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: he was away when she died
(05/06 12:47:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: And while he couldn’t have done anything to help even if he had been there
(05/06 12:47:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: there’s always that nagging doubt
(05/06 12:47:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: The what ifs.
(05/06 12:47:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sharper wanted revenge, not just for wheeley
(05/06 12:47:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: But to feel like he had been able to do something about it.
(05/06 12:48:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: About what had happened…
(05/06 12:48:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: So the things go…
(05/06 12:48:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: But,
(05/06 12:48:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: In the end
(05/06 12:48:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: He agreed to not hunt the bahro
(05/06 12:48:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: And he left,
(05/06 12:48:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: Although we knew he was planning on doing it anyways.
(05/06 12:49:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: So the lighter week after the Scars had healed ended,
(05/06 12:49:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: many typos were made,
(05/06 12:49:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: Even back then,
(05/06 12:49:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: Such are constants,
(05/06 12:49:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: But it was the turning point
(05/06 12:49:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: We had a chance to make the world better
(05/06 12:49:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: And…we failed.
(05/06 12:50:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was a test that we failed to see
(05/06 12:50:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: But we would do better,,,
(05/06 12:50:14) CandiColette: we were fools
(05/06 12:50:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: In the years to come,
(05/06 12:50:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: We’ve learned our lessons
(05/06 12:50:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: We’ve watied in the light
(05/06 12:50:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: We’ve done all these things in Watcher’s words
(05/06 12:50:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: So many
(05/06 12:50:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: Many
(05/06 12:50:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: Times
(05/06 12:50:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: And we’ve never realized it.
(05/06 12:51:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: So I’ll close tonight with this
(05/06 12:51:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: A bit of an assignment
(05/06 12:51:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: Go to Watcher’s pub
(05/06 12:51:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: Read the journals,
(05/06 12:51:26) Criswell2 opens notebook …
(05/06 12:51:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: The five Words books,
(05/06 12:51:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: And think back to what you know about yourself
(05/06 12:51:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: And the history of D’ni
(05/06 12:51:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: The cavern
(05/06 12:51:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: And the restorations
(05/06 12:51:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: And when you see all of this,
(05/06 12:51:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: When you read it,
(05/06 12:52:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: Be sure to read between the lines,
(05/06 12:52:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: Look at what is not said
(05/06 12:52:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: But implied,
(05/06 12:52:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: Take a leap of faith
(05/06 12:52:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: and see if you can understand more now than we did then
(05/06 12:52:28) DimensionTravelerCalum bows
(05/06 12:52:31) GiGi. claps her hands
