(05/20 12:01:19) Tom(Samoth): Who is not here will miss and interesting story…
(05/20 12:01:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: hm, quite probably
(05/20 12:01:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: first off
(05/20 12:01:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: as I was saying before
(05/20 12:01:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: i’m looking for translators
(05/20 12:01:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: before it was just an abstract
(05/20 12:01:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: “First six logs”
(05/20 12:01:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: but…
(05/20 12:01:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: now we have the ‘www.rel.to/historydoc’ document
(05/20 12:02:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: put together wonderfuly by Ainia
(05/20 12:02:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: so,
(05/20 12:02:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: if anyone can speak any of the prominent cavern languages
(05/20 12:02:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: Italian, German, Russian, French, Dutch, AND Spanish
(05/20 12:03:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: Look, let’s just leave it as these main ones for the sake of brevity ok?
(05/20 12:03:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: There are a LOT of languages out there
(05/20 12:03:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: Heheh
(05/20 12:04:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: Anyways
(05/20 12:04:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: If you speak ANY of those languages as well as english fluently enough that you feel confident enough to do a translation job
(05/20 12:04:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: Take a look at the rel.to/historydoc
(05/20 12:04:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: And see if you’re up for translating,
(05/20 12:05:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: Then if you’re up for the job
(05/20 12:05:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: Send me an email
(05/20 12:05:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: You can find it along with other contact info
(05/20 12:05:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: On the HN website’s contact us page
(05/20 12:05:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: and speaking of that website
(05/20 12:05:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: It is
(05/20 12:05:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: HeritageNight.wordpress.com
(05/20 12:05:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: :)
(05/20 12:05:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: And for the sake of brevity
(05/20 12:06:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: Would the owner of the snack truck head down to the class room.
(05/20 12:06:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: You forgot to unpack the egg salad sandwiches,
(05/20 12:06:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: and I’m sure the bahro would much appreciate it if you’d unwrap them for them?
(05/20 12:06:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: :)
(05/20 12:07:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: Okay
(05/20 12:07:09) moose 2’s bff: i bet they would
(05/20 12:07:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: lemme take a moment to gather my thoughts here
(05/20 12:07:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: Then we’ll start
(05/20 12:07:29) DimensionTravelerCalum takes a few deep breaths…
(05/20 12:07:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was a month after sharper had nearly brought disaster down upon us.
(05/20 12:08:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: We were all worried about the things phil had said before,
(05/20 12:08:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: And…
(05/20 12:08:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: We were even more worried for his sanity
(05/20 12:08:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: “Colors man.
(05/20 12:08:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: It’s all about the colors.”
(05/20 12:08:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: Phil was hood hopping,
(05/20 12:08:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: Playing around with the light garden buttons,
(05/20 12:08:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: Commenting about colors,
(05/20 12:08:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: And how “He” would like them.
(05/20 12:09:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: He made other off handed comments
(05/20 12:09:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: Stuff about his feet hurting
(05/20 12:09:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: (he wore no shoes)
(05/20 12:09:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: And other odd lines that didn’t even make sense IN context
(05/20 12:09:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: But like the dream we all had had foretold
(05/20 12:09:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: “He was coming.”
(05/20 12:09:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: it’s now assumed these days
(05/20 12:10:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: That Phil was talking about the guilds,
(05/20 12:10:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: The five guilds of many colors,
(05/20 12:10:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: And how they would be necessary for things to continue on wards,
(05/20 12:10:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: The “he” thing threw us off for quite a while though
(05/20 12:10:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: how we should listen to “Him”
(05/20 12:10:58) DimensionTravelerCalum shakes his head
(05/20 12:11:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: Phil is a mystery
(05/20 12:11:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: Even now.
(05/20 12:11:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: Looking back
(05/20 12:11:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: It all makes sense
(05/20 12:11:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: But to us then
(05/20 12:11:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: The pieces just didn’t fit.
(05/20 12:11:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: Lots of pieces
(05/20 12:11:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: Plenty of them still missing even now.
(05/20 12:11:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: That’s just how life goes though
(05/20 12:12:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: and life marches on
(05/20 12:12:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: you see
(05/20 12:12:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: this week had several releases
(05/20 12:12:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: At the same exact moment
(05/20 12:12:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: The five guild pubs
(05/20 12:12:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: Now those shirts in Kirel served a purpose
(05/20 12:12:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: Owning a shirt led one to having access to that pub
(05/20 12:13:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: It…was an odd system
(05/20 12:13:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: Is
(05/20 12:13:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: i still don’t know how it works
(05/20 12:13:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: Maybe RFID tags in the shirts contacting the KI’s?
(05/20 12:13:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: Who knows.
(05/20 12:13:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: In any case,
(05/20 12:13:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: The release of the guild pubs was…
(05/20 12:13:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: Hectic
(05/20 12:14:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: The pubs were crowded
(05/20 12:14:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: So much so you could barely move
(05/20 12:14:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: They didn’t have population limits
(05/20 12:14:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: Atleast, I don’t think they did.
(05/20 12:14:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: My memory’s just a little faulty on that
(05/20 12:14:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: I never really used the things
(05/20 12:14:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: Still don’t.
(05/20 12:15:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: i just don’t fit into any of the established guilds.
(05/20 12:15:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: well
(05/20 12:15:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: Maybe greeters?
(05/20 12:15:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: But…
(05/20 12:15:16) DimensionTravelerCalum shrugs
(05/20 12:15:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: people found little use for the things
(05/20 12:15:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: ‘Cept for ‘guild meetings’ or what have you.
(05/20 12:16:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: On release there was a flood of people linking between Relto, Nexus, Kirel, Nexus and then the pubs and back to Relto again
(05/20 12:16:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: All of them wanting to see the different pubs
(05/20 12:16:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sure, i was one of them.
(05/20 12:16:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: Almost everyone was doing it.
(05/20 12:16:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was the ‘new’ thing to do for that week!
(05/20 12:16:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: Or
(05/20 12:16:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: So we thought.
(05/20 12:16:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: Douglas Sharper, somehow,
(05/20 12:16:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: Still had Phil’s old relto book
(05/20 12:17:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: Back from those days when he had been thought dead.
(05/20 12:17:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: So, he did a release of his own
(05/20 12:17:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sharper put the bahro stone he had found
(05/20 12:17:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: into the niche in Teledahn
(05/20 12:17:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: This stone lead to a spy room
(05/20 12:17:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: Old and abandoned now that the DRC had a new HQ
(05/20 12:17:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: And in that spyroom was a pedestal
(05/20 12:17:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: With phil’s old relto on it.
(05/20 12:18:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: That place
(05/20 12:18:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: Has not changed
(05/20 12:18:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: for the most part.
(05/20 12:18:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: Phil
(05/20 12:18:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: …well
(05/20 12:18:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: When we all first saw the relto book in the olden days
(05/20 12:18:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: We assumed that the dark, rainy state of the place
(05/20 12:18:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: had to do with the fact that phil was dead
(05/20 12:18:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: And that the Relto was mourning it’s loss.
(05/20 12:19:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: Yeesha has said that the age reflects our souls,
(05/20 12:19:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: We were thinking it took it literally.
(05/20 12:19:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: when the bahro scream had reset everything
(05/20 12:19:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: This Relto…remained unchanged.
(05/20 12:19:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: It didn’t change.
(05/20 12:19:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: Not when everything else did
(05/20 12:20:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: So when you look at phil’s relto
(05/20 12:20:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: You see a piece of the past, living and breathing.
(05/20 12:20:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: Phil’s relto…well…
(05/20 12:20:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: We gathered there,
(05/20 12:20:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: Looking it over,
(05/20 12:20:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: It got crowded.
(05/20 12:21:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: But between these six places to gather,
(05/20 12:21:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: We had ‘plenty to explore’
(05/20 12:21:28) DimensionTravelerCalum rolls his eyes
(05/20 12:21:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: Simple places,
(05/20 12:21:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: But they were places nonetheless
(05/20 12:21:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: This week however, is defined by the ages
(05/20 12:22:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: But by the people
(05/20 12:22:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: Michael Engberg, who had disappeared shortly after his daughter had died,
(05/20 12:22:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: Appeared in the city,
(05/20 12:22:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: Many thought that “he” was the one Phil talked of.
(05/20 12:22:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: But he wasn’t.
(05/20 12:23:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: He said that he had gone to search for Watson
(05/20 12:23:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: The DRC’s old leader
(05/20 12:23:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: And had found him…
(05/20 12:23:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: Whether he was the “He” or not the poor man didn’t know
(05/20 12:23:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: other, more rude, Explorers then began pestering him
(05/20 12:23:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: He left ae’gura,
(05/20 12:24:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: right as Marie Sutherland made her way there.
(05/20 12:24:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: I don’t know what happened to the man
(05/20 12:24:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: And I think this was the last recorded appearance of him.
(05/20 12:24:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: But, i assume,
(05/20 12:24:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: Like so many others,
(05/20 12:24:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: He left.
(05/20 12:24:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: And hasn’t returned.
(05/20 12:24:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: If he is still down here
(05/20 12:24:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: He is waiting in the shadows,
(05/20 12:24:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: Watching
(05/20 12:24:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: Keeping an eye on us.
(05/20 12:24:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: Despite this event,
(05/20 12:25:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: Douglas Sharper met with explorers in Watchers
(05/20 12:25:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: And said that he KNEW who Phil’s He was
(05/20 12:25:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: And had met him~
(05/20 12:25:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: But, the tease sharper was,
(05/20 12:25:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: He refused to say who it was.
(05/20 12:25:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: Only that we would know.
(05/20 12:25:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: So we waited a while
(05/20 12:25:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: And then Dr. Watson appeared in the city.
(05/20 12:26:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: He was collecting Nexus links!
(05/20 12:26:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: The man talked with explorers as he went about,
(05/20 12:26:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: Citing that he had been to releeshan,
(05/20 12:26:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: And that phil’s “he” ramblings most likely pointed towards him.
(05/20 12:26:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: He said that he had met Yeesha,
(05/20 12:27:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: But, beyond these things,
(05/20 12:27:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: There was not really much to talk about, just yet
(05/20 12:27:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: Watson said he was preparing a speech.
(05/20 12:27:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: And that he would deliver it.
(05/20 12:27:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: soon enough anyways,
(05/20 12:28:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: but the man was a welcome sight for explorers.
(05/20 12:28:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: all of the Five were back in D’ni,
(05/20 12:28:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: …now, i’d really like to quote the whole thing he said later on
(05/20 12:28:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: In a community room much like this
(05/20 12:29:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: But my notes are a bit scattered right now and I’d rather not waste your time trying to find the quotes :P
(05/20 12:29:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: so I think I’ll summarize the things that he said durring his next few appearances, and even some of the things I think I might have missed from the above appearance
(05/20 12:30:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: there are a lot of points here and there,
(05/20 12:30:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: Important things
(05/20 12:30:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: If you really want to know the whole thing, you should look up the old chatlogs
(05/20 12:30:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: Which i really recommend doing.
(05/20 12:30:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: But putting that aside,
(05/20 12:30:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: Dr. Watson told us that, after he had left the restoration in 2004,
(05/20 12:30:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: He had gone to K’veer,
(05/20 12:31:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: And had gone through the events detailed to us through the Cyan game, Myst V.
(05/20 12:31:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: He himself has not played the game
(05/20 12:31:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: So he cannot assure it’s whole accuracy
(05/20 12:31:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: But the basic events told…
(05/20 12:31:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: The tablet,
(05/20 12:31:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: The symbols,
(05/20 12:31:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: The ages…
(05/20 12:31:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: Everything was true in that regard
(05/20 12:32:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: He had freed the Bahro from their slavery
(05/20 12:32:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: And with that freedom, came choice
(05/20 12:32:31) DimensionTravelerCalum sighs and shuffles a few papers.
(05/20 12:32:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: he had returned to the surface after doing this
(05/20 12:32:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: And told Cyan the story
(05/20 12:32:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: And they made the game.
(05/20 12:33:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: The rest, as they say, is history,
(05/20 12:33:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: With regards to that particular tale,
(05/20 12:33:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: He said that the war between Bahro was everywhere
(05/20 12:33:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: i can’t recall if this next quote was by Watson or Phil exactly,
(05/20 12:34:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: But he confirmed that the skies of Releeshan were dark with their wings.
(05/20 12:34:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: there were that many.
(05/20 12:34:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: He said Yeesha was searching for something to end the war
(05/20 12:34:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: But had yet to find it
(05/20 12:34:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: And then he went into the Guilds
(05/20 12:35:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: He said that the guilds themselves had not been the cause of D’ni’s downfall
(05/20 12:35:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: But their Pride
(05/20 12:35:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: he warned that as long as we did not make the same mistakes
(05/20 12:35:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: We would be fine with the restored guilds.
(05/20 12:35:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: And that we would need them
(05/20 12:35:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: Especially the Writers guild.
(05/20 12:35:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: To find new ages
(05/20 12:35:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: Where, one day,
(05/20 12:36:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: The key to ending the bahro war could be found.
(05/20 12:36:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: Looking back at all of this,
(05/20 12:36:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: I think you all know how well that has gone so far.
(05/20 12:36:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: No age written yet has yielded any kind of result.
(05/20 12:36:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: but,
(05/20 12:36:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: How do we not know we haven’t found it
(05/20 12:37:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: Because
(05/20 12:37:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: Really
(05/20 12:37:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: We have NO CLUE what it is we’re looking for.
(05/20 12:37:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: It could be some sort of portal leading to a no link zone
(05/20 12:37:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: A perfect prison for the leader of the dark side of the war,
(05/20 12:37:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: Or it could be a ring that would empower some chosen bahro with the powers of a mythical green sun
(05/20 12:37:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: Who knows
(05/20 12:38:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: I sure don’t.
(05/20 12:38:14) DimensionTravelerCalum shrugs
(05/20 12:38:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: Anyone got any ideas?
(05/20 12:38:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: No?
(05/20 12:38:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: Well,
(05/20 12:38:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: Im sure we’ll know
(05/20 12:38:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: When it’s time.
(05/20 12:38:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: But to get back on track
(05/20 12:38:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: Watson explained to us
(05/20 12:38:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: That the good Bahro of the war
(05/20 12:38:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: Had been deceiving us…
(05/20 12:39:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: For our own protection
(05/20 12:39:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: Our own sanity
(05/20 12:39:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: A grand deception, as he called it
(05/20 12:39:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: To keep the horror of war away from the cavern
(05/20 12:39:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: And maintaining this deception was costing them.
(05/20 12:39:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: They were fighting
(05/20 12:39:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: Dying
(05/20 12:39:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: For our ‘pleasure’
(05/20 12:39:40) moose 2’s bff: awwwww
(05/20 12:39:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: our ‘safety’
(05/20 12:39:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: I didn’t ask for it,
(05/20 12:39:48) <sniffle> Zyxia is sad
(05/20 12:39:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: I’m sure many of you didn’t either.
(05/20 12:40:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: This was one of the key factors
(05/20 12:40:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: That would lead into us leaving the following year
(05/20 12:40:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: If there was no-one in d’ni to protect
(05/20 12:40:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: maybe they could gain a upper hand?
(05/20 12:40:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: We have no idea how well out absence aided the war
(05/20 12:40:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: But…
(05/20 12:41:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: In a way, I think…
(05/20 12:41:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: We took Watson’s following challenge
(05/20 12:41:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: And went with it,
(05/20 12:41:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: Without even knowing how or why.
(05/20 12:41:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: He said to us
(05/20 12:41:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: challenged us
(05/20 12:41:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: “Be better than the D’ni were
(05/20 12:41:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: In terms of controlling our pride.”
(05/20 12:42:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: That is what made D’ni fall.
(05/20 12:42:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: A single man’s pride.
(05/20 12:42:33) DimensionTravelerCalum sighs
(05/20 12:42:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: I swear,
(05/20 12:42:38) Zyxia giggles
(05/20 12:42:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: How can we be better at controlling our pride if we can’t even control a single keyboard?
(05/20 12:42:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: And well at that??
(05/20 12:43:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: i…just…
(05/20 12:43:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: How?
(05/20 12:43:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: Well,
(05/20 12:43:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: That’s the problem with society.
(05/20 12:43:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: With people in general
(05/20 12:43:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: We have pride
(05/20 12:43:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: Egos
(05/20 12:43:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: That get in the way of bettering the world
(05/20 12:43:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: Greed,
(05/20 12:43:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: Envy
(05/20 12:43:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: Some of these are members of what is called
(05/20 12:43:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: “The seven deadly sins”
(05/20 12:43:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: So…
(05/20 12:43:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: How do we best our pride?
(05/20 12:44:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: Better than the D’ni?
(05/20 12:44:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: That’s something even I won’t pretend to know
(05/20 12:44:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: But,
(05/20 12:44:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: I’ll give what Yeesha suggests
(05/20 12:44:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: Returning what was taken
(05/20 12:44:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: Not feeling proud for the things done
(05/20 12:44:35) DimensionTravelerCalum shrugs
(05/20 12:44:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: Some people find it hard to swallow.
(05/20 12:44:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: Even there are those who take back what they returned.
(05/20 12:45:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: I…i’m not sure how it helps us,
(05/20 12:45:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: But…
(05/20 12:45:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: I think in a way
(05/20 12:45:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: We are taking that challenge
(05/20 12:45:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: I look back over the last few years Here in D’ni,
(05/20 12:45:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: With events like Fun House
(05/20 12:45:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: And the all Guilds meetings,
(05/20 12:46:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: Not easy things to pull off,
(05/20 12:46:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: If we are all so proud?
(05/20 12:46:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: It took a lot of pride to be swallowed for the fun house events to become common place
(05/20 12:46:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: And fun!
(05/20 12:46:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: Things that we accept in the Cavern.
(05/20 12:46:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: Even if they are semi-random in appearance
(05/20 12:47:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: People love those events when they occur.
(05/20 12:47:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: The guilds meetings?
(05/20 12:47:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: You wouldn’t have those if each guild refused to work together.
(05/20 12:47:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: To share what they had done in the previous months,
(05/20 12:47:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: That takes a lot of pride to dismiss,
(05/20 12:47:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: Some people try to keep things under wraps because they feel like they’re better than others
(05/20 12:48:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: Look at the way things in politics go sometimes,
(05/20 12:48:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: But…
(05/20 12:48:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: To pull together?
(05/20 12:48:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: I think that’s one of the best steps.
(05/20 12:48:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: We’ve banded together since then
(05/20 12:48:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: We have so many things that we work on these days
(05/20 12:48:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: The “Minkata Shard”
(05/20 12:48:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: “TOC” “Gehn” “Deep Island”
(05/20 12:49:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: All places- separate instances that work towards common goals- That fold together into one product in the end.
(05/20 12:49:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: One final release.
(05/20 12:49:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: To look at all of these things coming together?
(05/20 12:49:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sure, we may split apart somewhat to do these things,
(05/20 12:49:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: But…
(05/20 12:49:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: Come on,
(05/20 12:50:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: We wouldn’t be where we are today if we didn’t stick together at the roots?
(05/20 12:50:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: It’s…
(05/20 12:50:09) Zyxia nods
(05/20 12:50:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: It’s how a tree grows
(05/20 12:50:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: A single trunk
(05/20 12:50:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: With many branches
(05/20 12:50:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: The D’ni have a tree in their mythology a lot,
(05/20 12:50:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: a Great Tree of possibilities
(05/20 12:50:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: That’s exactly what we explorers are
(05/20 12:50:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: branches of a tree
(05/20 12:50:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: With endless possibilities.
(05/20 12:51:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: And i’m sorry if I got off on a philosophical track here,
(05/20 12:51:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: But…
(05/20 12:51:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: Can anyone truly be deceived
(05/20 12:51:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: By anything,
(05/20 12:51:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: If they stick together?
(05/20 12:51:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: If, like that big giant tree,
(05/20 12:51:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: they grow together, and dismiss the posibilities of doom and gloom?
(05/20 12:52:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: I’m sure that’s how endings can never be written
(05/20 12:52:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: The tree grows
(05/20 12:52:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: And even if one tree dies
(05/20 12:52:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: It’s seeds remain,
(05/20 12:52:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: Somewhere
(05/20 12:52:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: Just waiting to grow their own trees.
(05/20 12:52:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: Endings are just beginnings waiting to be told,
(05/20 12:52:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: A wise man once said.
(05/20 12:52:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: So if endings can be written
(05/20 12:52:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: Whose to say
(05/20 12:53:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: That it’s not just the beginning of a new book?
(05/20 12:53:08) DimensionTravelerCalum bows
(05/20 12:53:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: Thank you all for coming everyone
(05/20 12:53:18) Zyxia claps her hands
(05/20 12:53:20) Tom(Samoth) claps his hands

(05/20 12:53:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: The week

(05/20 12:53:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: Not the book

(05/20 12:53:42) Zyxia: Thank you very much DTC :))
(05/20 12:53:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: The time where explorers left D’ni for a time
