(07/22 11:55:37) T-Squared: zuh?
(07/22 11:55:39) TOOO: if you have enough ink and paper, you can always draw a crowd (rimshot)
(07/22 11:55:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: lol
(07/22 11:55:45) T-Squared roars with laughter
(07/22 11:55:49) Alien: I never get to hear the end of the story … has the ending been written yet?
(07/22 11:55:49) Jason DS starts to laugh
(07/22 11:55:54) T-Squared: NEVER
(07/22 11:55:56) T-Squared: :P
(07/22 11:55:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: the ending is never written
(07/22 11:56:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: with HN, we may have books with endings,
(07/22 11:56:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: but the ending is just another form of beginning
(07/22 11:56:16) Alata: i’m well
(07/22 11:56:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: just waiting to be told
(07/22 11:56:19) Alata: thanks
(07/22 11:56:24) Gay Hood leans left
(07/22 11:56:32) T-Squared leans right
(07/22 11:56:33) Alata leans right
(07/22 11:56:42) Alata: lol
(07/22 11:57:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: all that we ask is that during the show everyone remains eated
(07/22 11:57:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: unless otherwise instructed.
(07/22 11:57:48) Alata: seems like it draws a big crowd
(07/22 11:57:56) T-Squared: DON’T EAT ME
(07/22 11:58:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: seated

(07/22 11:58:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: stupid typos.
(07/22 11:58:09) T-Squared: Besides, I don’t go well with Chianti and Fava Beans!
(07/22 11:58:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: -_-;
(07/22 11:58:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: /facemeetbook
(07/22 11:58:19) T-Squared roars with laughter
(07/22 11:58:20) TOOO: land shark!

(07/22 11:59:22) TOOO cheers
(07/22 11:59:26) Alien cheers
(07/22 11:59:26) DimensionTravelerCalum places a book down on the table
(07/22 11:59:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: welcome to Heritage Night everyone
(07/22 11:59:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: first off the regular announcements:
(07/22 11:59:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: snacks in the classroom,
(07/22 11:59:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: drinks in the fountain,
(07/22 12:00:07) Alien drinks the fountain
(07/22 12:00:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: now, onto the GOOD and unregular announcements
(07/22 12:00:18) TOOO: sounds almost like haiku
(07/22 12:00:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: i’m opening up ideas for WEEKDAY HN’s again!
(07/22 12:00:35) T-Squared: Also, no horse-roughing, no house-rousing :P
(07/22 12:00:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: i’ll be posting more details on our website later
(07/22 12:00:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: heritagenight.wordpress.com
(07/22 12:00:52) Tom(Samoth): A dayly Heritage Night?
(07/22 12:00:53) T-Squared zips his mouth
(07/22 12:00:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: so you’ll see more there.
(07/22 12:00:56) T-Squared: OW.
(07/22 12:01:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: more like at the same time as the original HN,
(07/22 12:01:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: if scheduling abides
(07/22 12:01:19) T-Squared unzips his mouth and stays quiet for the rest of the show
(07/22 12:01:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: if you’re interested in managing a weekday HN, with all it entails,
(07/22 12:01:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: please see the post on the site when it comes up
(07/22 12:01:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: :)
(07/22 12:01:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: secondly
(07/22 12:01:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: i’m lookin’ for speakers for the rest of this round!
(07/22 12:02:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: due to Mysterium shenanigans, the dates are a bit unsteady,
(07/22 12:02:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: so I’ll have to see about fixing it up,
(07/22 12:02:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: but if you’re interested, either send me a KI mail here in D’ni
(07/22 12:02:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: or send me an email (It’s listed on the site.) on the surface.
(07/22 12:02:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: now then
(07/22 12:02:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: onto the show proper.
(07/22 12:02:45) Tom(Samoth): Sadly I was only here during this restauration…
(07/22 12:02:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: if you missed any previous weeks
(07/22 12:03:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: the logs are up on the site.
(07/22 12:03:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: doesn’t matter tom. :)
(07/22 12:03:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: you’ll see the details once the post goes up.
(07/22 12:03:30) DimensionTravelerCalum coughs and opens the book up to chapter 3.
(07/22 12:03:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: ahem
(07/22 12:03:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: to do a brief recap.
(07/22 12:04:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: when we came back to the cavern in 2006, the previous, prologue, restoration had been closed for a few years
(07/22 12:04:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: the DRC, D’ni Restoration Council, had lost its funding,
(07/22 12:04:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: and had lost its leader, Dr. Richard Watson, in the process.
(07/22 12:05:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: the first restoration was full of unpredictable events, although at times it didn’t seem as such.
(07/22 12:05:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: the most prominent of which was the appearance of mysterious pages, books, and stones,
(07/22 12:05:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: left only by our mysterious benefactor
(07/22 12:05:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: a woman named Yeesha.
(07/22 12:05:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: daughter of Atrus, son of Gehn, son of Aitrus.
(07/22 12:05:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: you may be familiar with those names,
(07/22 12:05:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: as you should.
(07/22 12:06:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: Yeesha’s family has long since been tied to D’ni’s fate,
(07/22 12:06:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: her mystical abilitys, drawing from a similar source as the mysterious Bahro,
(07/22 12:06:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: had the power to break the D’ni age writing rules.
(07/22 12:06:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: this…power,
(07/22 12:07:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: it went against the DRC’s then rule aligned policies.
(07/22 12:07:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: the journey she sent explorers on taught us many things,
(07/22 12:07:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: though at the time of the end of the first restoration
(07/22 12:07:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: it seemed only a handful had learned at all.
(07/22 12:07:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: men like Douglas Sharper, and Phil Henderson being high among them,
(07/22 12:08:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: were themselves formerly DRC employees.
(07/22 12:08:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: Phil had been a Restoration Engineer,
(07/22 12:08:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: and…
(07/22 12:08:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: when he left D’ni,
(07/22 12:08:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: that signified the end of it all.
(07/22 12:08:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: our story for this evening begins when explorers still romed D’ni
(07/22 12:08:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: without permission
(07/22 12:08:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: without knowing,
(07/22 12:08:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: without even caring about a restoration
(07/22 12:09:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: the ages they had access to were far smaller in number than the ones we have now.
(07/22 12:09:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: but eventually,
(07/22 12:09:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: journeys were taken,
(07/22 12:09:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: and the DRC came to follow Yeesha’s line of reasoning.
(07/22 12:09:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: they returned to D’ni
(07/22 12:09:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: aiming to set up a brand new restoration,
(07/22 12:09:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: funding? Who cared!
(07/22 12:10:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: they were going to do it for the same reason we stuck around
(07/22 12:10:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: because we were called.
(07/22 12:10:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: we felt drawn here.
(07/22 12:10:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: of course,
(07/22 12:10:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: the DRC’s actions drew attention from the funding sources,
(07/22 12:10:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: they were going to attempt it without funding,
(07/22 12:10:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: what an insane idea!
(07/22 12:10:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: so two main sources came forward
(07/22 12:11:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: the game company, Game Tap, run and owned by Tunner Co. at the time,
(07/22 12:11:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: and a wealthy woman, Cate Alexander,
(07/22 12:11:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: were these two sources.
(07/22 12:11:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: at the time. Cate remained hidden in the shadows.
(07/22 12:12:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: while game tap’s representative, Blake, made appearances every now and again.
(07/22 12:12:21) T-Squared: If I may ask, were the reasons why the DRC lost its funding because of the accidents?
(07/22 12:12:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: the DRC had a semblance of funding–
(07/22 12:12:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: the DRC lost it’s funding because the person that had access to it,
(07/22 12:12:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: Dr. Watson, had disappeared, if I recall correctly.
(07/22 12:13:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: but yeah,
(07/22 12:13:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: watson had vanished because of the accident,
(07/22 12:13:36) T-Squared: Well, were the accidents a factor in the cavern’s closing?
(07/22 12:13:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: and cause he vanished,
(07/22 12:13:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: funding dried up from watson’s source,
(07/22 12:13:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: and when the ubisoft corp pulled THEIR funding,
(07/22 12:14:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: the DRC had nothing to fall back upon.
(07/22 12:14:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: atleast, that’s the impression that I get these days,
(07/22 12:14:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: documents from that time are hard to come across these days.
(07/22 12:14:35) TOOO: zandi’s endowment ran out, too.
(07/22 12:15:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: anyways.
(07/22 12:15:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: the DRC were begining to move forward with new ages,
(07/22 12:15:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: the first of which we had pictures of,
(07/22 12:15:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: straight from the DRC’s imagers
(07/22 12:15:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: “Eder Delin” it was called.
(07/22 12:15:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: but before the age was released…
(07/22 12:15:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: something happened.
(07/22 12:15:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: December 19. 2006.
(07/22 12:16:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: the DRC were holding a town hall meeting in a hood
(07/22 12:16:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: in a room much like this one.
(07/22 12:16:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: the DRC were chatting about something or other
(07/22 12:16:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: and explorers listened,
(07/22 12:16:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: not everyone of course,
(07/22 12:16:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: many were in Ae’gura
(07/22 12:16:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: some in their ages.
(07/22 12:16:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: others just relaxing on the surface without a clue.
(07/22 12:17:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: but it was primarily in this room that it was most felt.
(07/22 12:17:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: there was a scream.
(07/22 12:17:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: a bahro’s scream
(07/22 12:17:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: loud and powerful
(07/22 12:17:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: someone sent Laxman a KI mail,
(07/22 12:17:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: and as he opened it,
(07/22 12:17:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: he barely had time to say “What the…?”
(07/22 12:17:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: before everyone linked away
(07/22 12:18:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: the bahro scream linked everyone.
(07/22 12:18:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: everyone everywhere
(07/22 12:18:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: the scream was heard and felt
(07/22 12:18:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: and people were linked away
(07/22 12:18:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: even those of us who had never even HEARD or BEEN to D’ni before,
(07/22 12:18:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: were pulled away from our lives at that very moment
(07/22 12:18:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: and each of us landed on a Relto island.
(07/22 12:18:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: barren, empty, desolate,
(07/22 12:18:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: reset.
(07/22 12:19:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: there were changes as well,
(07/22 12:19:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: a new island
(07/22 12:19:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: and a strange stone circle in the dirt.
(07/22 12:19:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: we found to our dismay that out KI’s had been damaged to some degree,
(07/22 12:19:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: for some the data was just corrupted, for others, the very device had exploded,
(07/22 12:19:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: and the ages…?
(07/22 12:19:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: reset.
(07/22 12:20:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: progress…gone.
(07/22 12:20:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: in the city and the hoods,
(07/22 12:20:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: dirt and rubble was everywhere,
(07/22 12:20:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: imagers were down, broken, and flickering.
(07/22 12:20:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: fountains no longer worked,
(07/22 12:20:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: doors refused to open.
(07/22 12:20:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: the scream had caused everything to break.
(07/22 12:21:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: those of us who even had Yeesha reward shirts at the time had lost them as well
(07/22 12:21:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: ‘taken back’ as it were.
(07/22 12:21:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: it was a very strange time,
(07/22 12:21:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: and the DRC were concerned with the safety of the cavern
(07/22 12:22:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: they locked up most of ae’gura,
(07/22 12:22:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: and worked on fixing what they could.
(07/22 12:22:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: age releases were put off until this could be done.
(07/22 12:22:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: eventually though,
(07/22 12:22:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: everything was put back together,
(07/22 12:22:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: but not without it’s fair share of damage,
(07/22 12:22:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: the community at the time was broken as well,
(07/22 12:23:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: explorers need only look to the failed liaison fiasco to see that fact.
(07/22 12:23:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: we were broken in spirit as it were,
(07/22 12:23:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: so when the next age, Eder Delin, was released…
(07/22 12:23:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: the bahro meddled.
(07/22 12:24:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: the age immediately was changed,
(07/22 12:24:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: a door, and seven cloths, were added.
(07/22 12:24:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: due to a Distribution error,
(07/22 12:24:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: another age soon slated for release, Eder Tsogal,
(07/22 12:24:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: was released as well…
(07/22 12:24:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: and modified at the same time.
(07/22 12:24:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: a door and cloths.
(07/22 12:24:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: the DRC pulled both ages back,
(07/22 12:24:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: and investigated,
(07/22 12:25:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: the ages had changed the instant they had been released.
(07/22 12:25:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: the DRC were baffled, but rolled with it in stride,
(07/22 12:25:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: perhaps Yeesha was giving us a new journey?
(07/22 12:25:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: they released Eder Delin on schedule,
(07/22 12:25:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: well,
(07/22 12:25:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: the new schedule,
(07/22 12:25:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: but it was released.
(07/22 12:26:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: and we found it to be an odd puzzle placed into this age.
(07/22 12:26:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: the cloths and door didn’t often actually WORK.
(07/22 12:26:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: it was as if the bahro had rushed the job.
(07/22 12:26:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: and during those first few days
(07/22 12:26:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: when explorers got the door opened,
(07/22 12:26:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: they would STAY open
(07/22 12:27:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: thus giving other explorers the chance to bypass the puzzle entirely.
(07/22 12:27:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: the ResEngs however, began work on the mechanisms,
(07/22 12:27:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: and got the doors working properly
(07/22 12:27:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: maybe the bahro had done it to get everyone working together in a grander scale?
(07/22 12:27:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: we don’t know for sure.
(07/22 12:27:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: Eder Tsogal was released soon after that,
(07/22 12:28:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: and it had the same puzzle
(07/22 12:28:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: quite a puzzle indeed.
(07/22 12:28:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: one designed to get people to work together,
(07/22 12:28:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: and reluctantly, explorers did.
(07/22 12:28:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: but in a seeming change of pace
(07/22 12:29:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: the cave on the other side of the door had no message
(07/22 12:29:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: no meaning
(07/22 12:29:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: no actual way to know that it was from Yeesha or not.
(07/22 12:29:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: many explorers took back their bahro poles in protest,
(07/22 12:29:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: disputes broke out once again.
(07/22 12:29:54) DimensionTravelerCalum:  we were still fractured,
(07/22 12:30:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: and the puzzle of the Blue Spiral had done little to mend it.
(07/22 12:30:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: we would need to be united, however,
(07/22 12:30:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: if we were to face the coming storm.
(07/22 12:30:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: and like the dream many of us have had,
(07/22 12:30:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: the is a storm coming.
(07/22 12:31:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: nick white, at the time a DRC translator,
(07/22 12:31:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: had told us about it.
(07/22 12:31:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: he was very popular among explorers,
(07/22 12:31:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: especially the…female ones… >_>
(07/22 12:31:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: but he let loose details that the DRC didn’t want told.
(07/22 12:31:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: the next age that had been released was a pod
(07/22 12:31:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: Negilahn
(07/22 12:32:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: and is supposedly had lush and abundant wildlife.
(07/22 12:32:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: if you go there now
(07/22 12:32:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: much like then
(07/22 12:32:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: there were no animals.
(07/22 12:32:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: Nick told us that the animal population had gone DOWN in recent times,
(07/22 12:32:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: almost exactly right before the release.
(07/22 12:32:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: a predator? a disease?
(07/22 12:32:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: something was killing them.
(07/22 12:33:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: the DRC scolded nick for telling us, but put the age out on schedule,
(07/22 12:33:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: and as before, we argued,
(07/22 12:33:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: what was killing the animals?
(07/22 12:33:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: it takes a while for lessons to sink in.
(07/22 12:34:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: time,
(07/22 12:34:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: something very precious
(07/22 12:34:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: and while the blue spiral had yet to set as a lesson in our heads,
(07/22 12:34:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: a new journey would appear.
(07/22 12:34:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: something….sparkly
(07/22 12:35:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: in spite of explorer’s fears and the words of caution by Michael Engberg, the resident structural engineer,
(07/22 12:35:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: Cate Alexander had the next pod, Dereno released.
(07/22 12:35:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: there too was something sparkly.
(07/22 12:35:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: we just didn’t get what it was.
(07/22 12:35:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: Engberg’s daughter, Willow “Wheeley,” visited the cavern from time to time
(07/22 12:36:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: she visited Dereno and Negilahn when Dereno was released.
(07/22 12:36:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: …
(07/22 12:36:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: the decline of the animal population affected Dereno as well.
(07/22 12:37:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: a ResEng had found a corpse,
(07/22 12:37:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: shredded.
(07/22 12:37:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: mutilated.
(07/22 12:37:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: it was a predator.
(07/22 12:37:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: something deadly and fast.
(07/22 12:37:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: the DRC called in Douglas Sharper,
(07/22 12:38:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: and he along with Nick White and another Explorer,
(07/22 12:38:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: went to Negilahn to see if it was the same case there.
(07/22 12:38:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: the third explorer was named Rils, and he was well known for founding a small society for studying wildlife in the pod age.
(07/22 12:39:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: many of us were jealous of Rils,
(07/22 12:39:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: but others were afraid
(07/22 12:39:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: if there was a predator…?
(07/22 12:39:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: would they be safe?
(07/22 12:39:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: they hadn’t been gone long before they found a similarly shredded body.
(07/22 12:39:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: the sight and smell made them link back almost immediately.
(07/22 12:39:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: sharper was convinced it was the same predator.
(07/22 12:40:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: the DRC released a map and the next pod soon enough,
(07/22 12:40:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: despite the concerns of a predator that didn’t eat what it killed,
(07/22 12:40:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: the map proved the pods were all on the same planet
(07/22 12:40:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: which meant the same predator was present at all Pods.
(07/22 12:40:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: Payiferen was the key to our shiny journey, of sorts,
(07/22 12:41:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: many of us had formed theories before then,
(07/22 12:41:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: and Payiferen and the map helped to show that there was sound basis behind those theories.
(07/22 12:41:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: finally,
(07/22 12:41:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: the DRC released one last pod,
(07/22 12:41:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: Tetsonot.
(07/22 12:41:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: they said it was “safe”
(07/22 12:42:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: if you’ve been there, I think you’ll agree that it doesn’t look like it.
(07/22 12:42:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: why had they chosen to release this pod?
(07/22 12:42:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: after hours of waiting,
(07/22 12:42:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: our fourth piece of a shiny puzzle fell into our hands,
(07/22 12:42:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: and…I think it just hit me,
(07/22 12:42:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: the DRC must have begun searching the pods for the portal glyphs once they stumbled upon them.
(07/22 12:43:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: that would explain why they released Tetsonot.
(07/22 12:43:28) DimensionTravelerCalum looks down at the book before him…
(07/22 12:43:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: if they released an age, making sure it was “safe” then Yeesha…or whoever was doing these puzzles,
(07/22 12:43:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: wouldn’t release them in ‘unsafe’ forms.
(07/22 12:44:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: it would be latter commented by a DRC member that there were Bahro influences in many of their ages now.
(07/22 12:44:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: journeys and puzzles we’ve only yet to dream of.
(07/22 12:44:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: if the DRC ever get around to releasing those ages…
(07/22 12:44:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: well…
(07/22 12:45:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: I somehow suspect those journeys, despite appearing years ago,
(07/22 12:45:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: were meant for the time of their release in the future.
(07/22 12:45:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: it’s all speculation of course,
(07/22 12:45:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: but there’s no other real reason that can explain away Tetsonot!
(07/22 12:46:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: it just runs so…counter to the DRC’s normal mode of operation.
(07/22 12:46:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: then again, we begin to wonder,
(07/22 12:46:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: maybe someone was working with the DRC to make these puzzles?
(07/22 12:46:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: we certainly had no clue, especially back then.
(07/22 12:46:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: but we began to wonder
(07/22 12:47:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: why were we solving puzzles only to get mysterious rings in our Reltos?
(07/22 12:47:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: why did these rings even exist?
(07/22 12:47:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: why was Yeesha not speaking to us in the caves?
(07/22 12:47:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: it didn’t make any sense,
(07/22 12:47:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: and it still doesn’t.
(07/22 12:47:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: the rings true purpose remains hidden to us,
(07/22 12:48:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: and the empty caves echo loudly with our footsteps,
[BahroScream]
(07/22 12:48:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: and bahro screams as well…
(07/22 12:48:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: something had to break this growing tension
(07/22 12:48:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: many of us could feel it growing
(07/22 12:48:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: stronger and stronger…
(07/22 12:49:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: and as this tension grew
(07/22 12:49:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: a scar would allow it to break,
(07/22 12:49:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: and even out…
(07/22 12:49:25) DimensionTravelerCalum bows
(07/22 12:49:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: thank you all for coming,
(07/22 12:49:37) Tom(Samoth) claps his hands

(07/22 12:49:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: schedules are still wonky
(07/22 12:49:50) SinterKlass claps her hands
(07/22 12:49:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: but I thank you all for coming nonetheless.
(07/22 12:50:01) Alata: thank you DTC
(07/22 12:50:16) Tom(Samoth): You told it nice, DTC!
(07/22 12:50:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: :)
