(04/14 12:00:34) Pote leans right
(04/14 12:00:35) DimensionTravelerCalum rubs his hands together then opens his notes
(04/14 12:00:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: Alright then,
(04/14 12:00:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: Lets get this started,shall we?
(04/14 12:00:45) Yark Dozer waves hello
(04/14 12:00:50) Alien cheers
(04/14 12:00:52) DimensionTravelerCalum closes his eyes to take a breath…
(04/14 12:00:53) toffy nods her head
(04/14 12:00:56) Pote leans right
(04/14 12:01:06) sylster leans left
(04/14 12:01:06) DimensionTravelerCalum takes a few more breaths just because… :P
(04/14 12:01:11) Sanguina: :)
(04/14 12:01:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: The second restoration had ended with a slow and steady drain.
(04/14 12:01:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: The first had had its plug pulled rather suddenly.
(04/14 12:01:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: Both were accountable to the same fact:
(04/14 12:01:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: Funding was lost.
(04/14 12:01:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: Yeesha- and the Bahro who sided with her-
(04/14 12:01:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: Were gone,
(04/14 12:02:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: Off to who knows where planning and doing who knows what.
(04/14 12:02:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: All we knew was that they would return some day,
(04/14 12:02:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: If we were lucky.
(04/14 12:02:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: Many explorers- by the end of april 2008, realized that things would be quiet in D’ni for some time to come.
(04/14 12:02:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: Most left,
(04/14 12:02:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: leaving to the surface, taking the life lessons learned from D’ni and applying them elsewhere
(04/14 12:03:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: Some stayed
(04/14 12:03:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: Looking to make sure that the gears beneath the surface continued to turn slowly, but steadily.
(04/14 12:03:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: D’ni was asleep.
(04/14 12:03:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: The years moved on,
(04/14 12:03:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: But many explorers would always stop to wonder
(04/14 12:03:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: “what’s going on now?”
(04/14 12:04:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: We all still felt the call,
(04/14 12:04:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: Itching at the backs of our hearts,
(04/14 12:04:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: But it was quiet for the time being,
(04/14 12:04:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: Soon enough though,
(04/14 12:04:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: It began to gnaw harder, louder,
(04/14 12:04:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: and so the cycle began again.
(04/14 12:04:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was almost two years later now,
(04/14 12:04:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: In 2010,
(04/14 12:05:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: The call was ringing loudly for many of us now,
(04/14 12:05:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: A desire to return to D’ni was growing,
(04/14 12:05:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: I myself was beginning to plan an expedition down,
(04/14 12:05:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: But just before i could bring myself to go…something happened.
(04/14 12:05:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: A spark.
(04/14 12:05:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: February 4th, 2010.
(04/14 12:05:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: On that rather memorable day,
(04/14 12:06:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: Victor Laxman posted on the DRC site forums,
(04/14 12:06:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was the first activity that section had seen in years,
(04/14 12:06:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: Even since before Cate took over,
(04/14 12:06:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was a simple thread,
(04/14 12:06:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: The title an eye catching one
(04/14 12:06:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: ‘Activity in the Cavern?”
(04/14 12:07:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: Laxman was reporting that a few of his security sensors had been tripped,
(04/14 12:07:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: And was asking if any DRC members had any unplanned trips to go down there.
(04/14 12:07:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: Immediately, explorers everywhere began wondering,
(04/14 12:07:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: Was this really happening?
(04/14 12:07:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: Was something going on?
(04/14 12:07:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: Was… Had Yeesha Returned?
(04/14 12:07:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: Had the Bahro..?
(04/14 12:08:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: Several explorers pushed their plans forwards while others, like me, held them back.
(04/14 12:08:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: we weren’t sure what we’d be walking into,
(04/14 12:08:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: But we knew it could be dangerous.
(04/14 12:08:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: almost a day went by before a reply came,
(04/14 12:09:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: Ikuro Kodama and Marie Sutherland had volunteered to go down to investigate.
(04/14 12:09:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: A few explorers by then had made it to D’ni,
(04/14 12:09:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: Reporting that everything seemed fine,
(04/14 12:09:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: Nothing seemed to be unstable.
(04/14 12:09:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was on this weekend of a super bowl game that several explorers-
(04/14 12:09:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: Tai’lahr, Mac, Mystdee, and JanB-
(04/14 12:10:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: Arrived in the city, and met up with Marie herself.
(04/14 12:10:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: Although these explorers were hesitant to reveal themselves, being ‘unauthorized’,
(04/14 12:11:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: They did such as they were joined by a few other explorers, Veralun and JWPlatt being among those.
(04/14 12:11:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: The explorers asked Marie about what was going on,
(04/14 12:11:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: And Marie had asked in return if they had seen Kodama yet,
(04/14 12:11:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: Marie, honestly, was relieved that it was a group of explorers she met up with first,
(04/14 12:11:49) Pote leans left
(04/14 12:11:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: Rather than a certain “Shroom baron” or the Noloben Inhabitant,
(04/14 12:12:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: Following that odd remark about sharper, Mystdee inquired if Marie had heard anything from him.
(04/14 12:12:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: Marie replied that she hadn’t heard much from the other DRC members after they’d split up.
(04/14 12:12:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: After a bit more tense bits of conversation, the question came up.
(04/14 12:12:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: Would the DRC be kicking the explorers out?
(04/14 12:13:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: Marie said that the DRC wouldn’t be doing that,
(04/14 12:13:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: But she did warn that any explorers down here would be on their own,
(04/14 12:13:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: No funding, no restoration, no new ages, no full time ResEngs…
(04/14 12:13:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: The explorers were relieved by this,
(04/14 12:13:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: And they tried to assure Marie that they understood the situation.
(04/14 12:14:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: “It will not be a place that some will care to be interested in,” Marie had continued, “Those who are Called will come even knowing that.
(04/14 12:14:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: “Who knows what the future holds? I certainly do not. I think there’s a reason that ‘you never know…’ is a motto of our friends at Cyan Worlds.”
(04/14 12:14:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: soon after that, Marie left to find Kodama, and the explorers continued their investigations.
(04/14 12:15:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: On the surface, however, news was slim.
(04/14 12:15:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: Explorers were wondering what was going on,
(04/14 12:15:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: Watching with baited breath.
(04/14 12:15:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: But on that Saturday evening, Tweek reported the encounter between the explorers and Marie,
(04/14 12:15:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: Though citing that he had stayed in the shadows and not heard much of what they said
(04/14 12:16:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: A few hours after that, dadguy was able to retell the conversation fairly well, confirming that the Explorers had indeed met with Marie.
(04/14 12:16:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: Later that evening, around 11 PM,
(04/14 12:16:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: Kodama met up with the explorers that were still in the city,
(04/14 12:17:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: he’d been on his way to visit the memorial imager, and had come across the explorers near the Tokotah tent,
(04/14 12:17:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: They chatted for a good while, about what the restoration would be without funding, or what would happen to D’ni,
(04/14 12:17:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: And Kodama noted that it was nice just to relax for a change.
(04/14 12:17:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: The conversation moved onto other things, but that same point was brought up yet again.
(04/14 12:18:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: “enjoy the cavern as it is, rather than worrying about repairing everything in sight. We didn’t have time for much of that before. Stopping and smelling the roses as it were,” Kodama had said with a grin,
(04/14 12:18:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: “It might be a nice change of pace.”
(04/14 12:19:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: Kodama agreed with Marie, however, that he didn’t see any problem with the explorers staying behind,
(04/14 12:19:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: So long as no harm came to the cavern itself,
(04/14 12:19:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: it was soon after that that an explorer asked what to do if they ran into a Bahro,
(04/14 12:19:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: And Kodama replied with what was noted as a jovial tone that:
(04/14 12:19:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: “I hear they like Reese’s Pieces.”
(04/14 12:20:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: Over the night, as explorers settled down to gather their facts,
(04/14 12:20:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: News would filter up to the surface,
(04/14 12:20:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: All of it collaborating itself,
(04/14 12:20:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: to some explorers,
(04/14 12:20:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: Either this was a well planned hoax,
(04/14 12:20:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: Or it was actually happening.
(04/14 12:21:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: The next day, the explorers and DRC wrapped up their investigations,
(04/14 12:21:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: with Marie laughing upon being told it was the super bowl weekend,
(04/14 12:21:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: “I guess we could have ruled out sharper then!”
(04/14 12:21:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: as the DRC left, and the explorers settled down to see about keeping the cavern inhabited,
(04/14 12:22:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: Explores on the surface still wondered what was going on.
(04/14 12:22:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: Finally, Marie posted an official confirmation on the forums,
(04/14 12:22:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: noting that they should speak to their ‘fearless leader’,
(04/14 12:22:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: Indicating that because the sensors were in a DRC only area,
(04/14 12:22:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: Only one of them could have tripped it.
(04/14 12:23:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: Soon enough, Watson did indeed reply,
(04/14 12:23:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: confessing that he HAD tripped the sensors,
(04/14 12:23:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: Just to get some DRC members down to see the explorers he had been observing.
(04/14 12:23:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: As for the prompt?
(04/14 12:23:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: What else- a dream!
(04/14 12:23:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: The message was loud and clear
(04/14 12:23:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: Explorers were to return to D’ni,
(04/14 12:24:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: And the call seemed to roar like it never had before.
(04/14 12:24:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: The cavern seemed slightly destabilized from the initial rush,
(04/14 12:24:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: But it soon settled down…
(04/14 12:24:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: Over the course of that year- 2010- many things happened,
(04/14 12:24:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: Heritage Night itself had been started,
(04/14 12:24:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: Parties had been held,
(04/14 12:24:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: Friends made,
(04/14 12:25:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: More parties held.
(04/14 12:25:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: Hehe..
(04/14 12:25:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: But,
(04/14 12:25:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: The most important event of all was an explorer planned event,
(04/14 12:25:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: The “BOMB”
(04/14 12:25:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: This event…
(04/14 12:25:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was one of the most critical events that would show us explorers how we would act under stressful events
(04/14 12:25:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: ….without the DRC.
(04/14 12:26:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: July 10th- around 11;00 KI time-
(04/14 12:26:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: the story goes that a Mad Roboticist, and arch-nemesis to an explorer named OHB,
(04/14 12:26:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: Had smuggled a bomb into Ae’gura,
(04/14 12:26:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was a humanoid android,
(04/14 12:26:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: Appropriately named “BOMB”
(04/14 12:26:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: And it…
(04/14 12:26:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: Well…
(04/14 12:26:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was rather inspired.
(04/14 12:26:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: Any time you said “BOMB”
(04/14 12:27:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: The poor thing would lose count of it’s countdown from 1000,
(04/14 12:27:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: Or…
(04/14 12:27:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: If you touched it,
(04/14 12:27:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: it would yell:
(04/14 12:27:21) DimensionTravelerCalum: “Stop! Touching! THE GLASS!”
(04/14 12:27:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: BOMB was one of the most funny bots i’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting.
(04/14 12:27:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: You just couldn’t help it,
(04/14 12:27:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: Despite being ‘programmed’ to explode,
(04/14 12:28:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: he was just too funny!
(04/14 12:28:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: The BOMB, as i was saying,
(04/14 12:28:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: Was a robot built not by OHB’s arch nemesis, but instead had been a robot OHB himself had made to add some fun to the cavern,
(04/14 12:28:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: The whole event was a massive story he’d plotted up,
(04/14 12:28:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: OHB himself was quite clever,
(04/14 12:28:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: I’m sure many of you remember OHBot?
(04/14 12:29:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: He was the first Bot that D’ni had ever seen.
(04/14 12:29:07) Alien misses OHBot
(04/14 12:29:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: And he was quite handy too,
(04/14 12:29:19) Pote: yes Cal
(04/14 12:29:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: He could tell you what time it was,
(04/14 12:29:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: Or help translate other languages,
(04/14 12:29:31) Tom(Samoth): yeah, he was nice!
(04/14 12:29:36) Pote knowing some other Bots
(04/14 12:29:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: yup :)
(04/14 12:29:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: He was the first bot ever,
(04/14 12:29:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: And he set a standard for them all.
(04/14 12:30:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: Of course, many explorers didn’t feel the “Fun” of this staged event,
(04/14 12:30:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: And so…
(04/14 12:30:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: They took it rather seriously :(
(04/14 12:30:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: Too seriously.
(04/14 12:30:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: The BOMB, despite not having any real explosives,
(04/14 12:30:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: Was definitely an explosive.
(04/14 12:30:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: It set off a fuse that completely knocked away the cloaks some people had set around themselves.
(04/14 12:30:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: Things were said,
(04/14 12:30:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: Some better left unsaid,
(04/14 12:31:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: But it got to the point that those few who tried to wrest control of the situation ended up ruining the fun of it for everyone.
(04/14 12:31:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: OHB had to break character just to bring some sense to the event,
(04/14 12:31:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: Laying down some new ground rules that…sadly…still weren’t followed.
(04/14 12:32:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: It’s sad, in a way,
(04/14 12:32:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: that something many people enjoyed could be ruined by so few,
(04/14 12:32:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: But…
(04/14 12:32:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: people are people
(04/14 12:32:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: Humans are humans,
(04/14 12:32:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: Bahro are bahro.
(04/14 12:32:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: We all make choices and make mistakes,
(04/14 12:32:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: Eventually, the ‘fun’ of the event was brought back on however,
(04/14 12:33:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: As explorers began working together to ‘disarm’ the bomb,
(04/14 12:33:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: To the point that they began ignoring those who were repeatedly still trying to sa-bot-tage things.
(04/14 12:33:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: Pardon the lame pun.
(04/14 12:33:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: Explorers worked together,
(04/14 12:33:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: And they got the bomb disabled,
(04/14 12:34:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: Still….it was a precedent.
(04/14 12:34:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: And it had revealed some ugly truths…
(04/14 12:34:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: At the start of 2011, something new would come to our attention
(04/14 12:34:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: The “Birthday hacks” as they’ve become known as.
(04/14 12:34:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: Which, of course,
(04/14 12:34:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: Led into Fun House, and “The Grey hats”
(04/14 12:34:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: It had started on a birthday party for Rand Miller,
(04/14 12:34:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: Hence the name,
(04/14 12:35:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: Suddenly, the sky began changing colors and things got funky.
(04/14 12:35:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: What this was,
(04/14 12:35:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: Was an old trick learned from the days between the first and second restorations
(04/14 12:35:24) DimensionTravelerCalum: Dump some Teledahn spores into the air vents,
(04/14 12:35:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: Set up a few electromagnets,
(04/14 12:35:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: And suddenly you could mess with what people saw,
(04/14 12:35:48) DimensionTravelerCalum: Literally ‘hacking’ the world around you,
(04/14 12:35:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: It was such a powerful trick that even the KI’s were fooled by theme.
(04/14 12:36:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: You could take pictures of things that weren’t there,
(04/14 12:36:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: Or place markers in impossible places.
(04/14 12:36:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: Many explorers were NOT happy with this blatant violation,
(04/14 12:36:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: Over the whole of 2011,
(04/14 12:36:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: One question was rather prominent,
(04/14 12:36:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: “Do we allow it or not?”
(04/14 12:36:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: These Mental hacks– could the people who knew how to do them be trusted?
(04/14 12:37:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: Were they Black Hats, or White Hats?
(04/14 12:37:19) DimensionTravelerCalum: It got to the point that the explorers who COULD do these things tired of the bickering
(04/14 12:37:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: And so they coined their own name
(04/14 12:37:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: “The grey hats.”
(04/14 12:37:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: Neither white or black,
(04/14 12:37:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: They formed a sort of group, and began talking with the DRC,
(04/14 12:37:55) DimensionTravelerCalum: The rules the DRC set down were simple,
(04/14 12:38:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: “Confine the tricks to private areas.
(04/14 12:38:07) DimensionTravelerCalum: don’t do it in public.”
(04/14 12:38:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: And with the announcement that the DRC would allow a hood specifically designed to contain these things,
(04/14 12:38:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: “The Fun House”
(04/14 12:38:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: some explorers…
(04/14 12:38:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: Got mad.
(04/14 12:38:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: Again
(04/14 12:38:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: And again.
(04/14 12:38:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: And again!!
(04/14 12:39:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: They were “Legitimizing” these actions,
(04/14 12:39:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: Of course,
(04/14 12:39:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: Nobody could disagree that the Fun House tricks were bringing fun times to D’ni,
(04/14 12:39:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: Even allowing for historical purposes to a degree,
(04/14 12:39:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: Explorers, with the aid of the holographic images brought on by those spores,
(04/14 12:39:57) DimensionTravelerCalum: Were able to witness things they’d never seen.
(04/14 12:40:01) DimensionTravelerCalum: Bahro swarming Kerath’s arch,
(04/14 12:40:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: Or that one elusive Bahro that had once upon a time place a Bahro stone in the hoods.
(04/14 12:40:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: Even the very clever, and VERY detailed Bahro Costume that one explorer had made came into use,
(04/14 12:40:40) DimensionTravelerCalum: Allowing explorers to see what a Bahro looked like,
(04/14 12:40:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: Without…well…
(04/14 12:40:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: Actually being in danger.
(04/14 12:40:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: Over time,
(04/14 12:41:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: The Grey Hats and the Fun House became a sort of normal part of D’ni,
(04/14 12:41:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: Rising to the usage of new bots designed to help explorers control the illusions.
(04/14 12:41:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: You, of course, know them better as Magic Bot and Mimi Bot.
(04/14 12:41:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: explorers, using these tools, would come up with new games to do with the bits and pieces of the ages,
(04/14 12:41:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: our friend X here came up with Soccer games,
(04/14 12:42:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: as an example, :)
(04/14 12:42:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: Yes….
(04/14 12:42:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: Things….things seemed to stabilize through 2012.
(04/14 12:42:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: Over time, “Fun House” slowly was re-branded into the present “Magic Worlds”
(04/14 12:42:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: And other bots arose,
(04/14 12:43:02) DimensionTravelerCalum: One, Lyrobot, was designed to act as a replacement to the lost OHBot,
(04/14 12:43:12) DimensionTravelerCalum: That year, 2012…
(04/14 12:43:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: That was one of the calmest that i can remember…
(04/14 12:43:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: But of course,
(04/14 12:43:34) DimensionTravelerCalum: With any calm comes a storm.
(04/14 12:43:50) DimensionTravelerCalum: It’s a story that tells itself repeatedly without end.
(04/14 12:43:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: A group of close friends, through whatever trigger,
(04/14 12:44:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: A person’s misspoken words, or a suggestion to make a hood
(04/14 12:44:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: Ends up fracturing,
(04/14 12:44:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: I’ve seen it many times here,
(04/14 12:44:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: Thrice that i care to even mention.
(04/14 12:44:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: But i’m sure that it’s happened many many times elsewhere.
(04/14 12:44:42) DimensionTravelerCalum: It always ends up the same.
(04/14 12:44:43) DimensionTravelerCalum: Fighting,
(04/14 12:44:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: With one or more explorers going into an exile,
(04/14 12:45:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: I hate it when that happens,
(04/14 12:45:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: But there isn’t much that can be done.
(04/14 12:45:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sometimes, the explorers return,
(04/14 12:45:20) DimensionTravelerCalum: Sometimes they don’t.
(04/14 12:45:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: But that’s how we are,
(04/14 12:45:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: We’re a family down here,
(04/14 12:45:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: And even families have their squabbles,
(04/14 12:45:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: Just as Engberg had said in the first restoration,
(04/14 12:46:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: But in the end,
(04/14 12:46:03) DimensionTravelerCalum: We all hear the call,
(04/14 12:46:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: In the end,
(04/14 12:46:13) DimensionTravelerCalum: We all are brothers and sisters of D’ni.
(04/14 12:46:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: We are the called.
(04/14 12:46:30) DimensionTravelerCalum: We are the ones who wait in the dark,
(04/14 12:46:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: And…
(04/14 12:46:36) Yark Dozer: So Say We All!
(04/14 12:46:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: That’s alright.
(04/14 12:46:41) Tom(Samoth) cheers
(04/14 12:46:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: That’s just who we are. :)
(04/14 12:46:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: Life moves on,
(04/14 12:46:49) ventris claps her hands
(04/14 12:46:50) [X]: :)
(04/14 12:46:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: And we move with it,
(04/14 12:46:59) DimensionTravelerCalum: We aren’t just statues in the river,
(04/14 12:46:59) [X] nods her head
(04/14 12:47:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: we float along with the current.
(04/14 12:47:18) DimensionTravelerCalum: That’s…that’s how things progress.
(04/14 12:47:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: Phil had said in the past,
(04/14 12:47:29) DimensionTravelerCalum: “we’re all on a journey.”
(04/14 12:47:32) DimensionTravelerCalum: And
(04/14 12:47:38) DimensionTravelerCalum: “This is where my journey takes me,”
(04/14 12:47:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: Specifically that, when he was on the Guild Hall.
(04/14 12:47:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: our journeys are all different,
(04/14 12:48:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: All unique,
(04/14 12:48:06) DimensionTravelerCalum: The things we do on it reflect who we are,
(04/14 12:48:09) DimensionTravelerCalum: What we can become,
(04/14 12:48:16) DimensionTravelerCalum: What we can be capable of.
(04/14 12:48:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: In my opinion, that is all that we can do.
(04/14 12:48:31) DimensionTravelerCalum: Carl has said many times
(04/14 12:48:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: “No great Uru happens without a reason.”
(04/14 12:48:41) DimensionTravelerCalum: And he’s right.
(04/14 12:48:45) DimensionTravelerCalum: We are all here,
(04/14 12:48:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: We are all together,
(04/14 12:48:49) DimensionTravelerCalum: For a reason.
(04/14 12:48:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: What that reason is?
(04/14 12:48:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: I do not know.
(04/14 12:49:00) DimensionTravelerCalum: But it is a journey to find out.
(04/14 12:49:08) DimensionTravelerCalum: Yeesha had said in that imager,
(04/14 12:49:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: “Some will seek the destination, but you should seek the journey.
(04/14 12:49:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: “It’s as a fine tapestry, complex beyond recognition, but now torn.”
(04/14 12:49:44) DimensionTravelerCalum: We stand here,
(04/14 12:49:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: As a community,
(04/14 12:49:53) DimensionTravelerCalum: But we are torn by language
(04/14 12:50:11) DimensionTravelerCalum: English- Spanish- Dutch- French- Chinese- Japanese- German-
(04/14 12:50:15) DimensionTravelerCalum: So many many more,
(04/14 12:50:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: Russian, and African, and Mexican and Hawaiian,
(04/14 12:50:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: So many different languages,
(04/14 12:50:37) DimensionTravelerCalum: All part of a single place
(04/14 12:50:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: A single cavern!
(04/14 12:50:50) Pote: yes Cal
(04/14 12:50:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: All those different threads can be weaved together into a single point.
(04/14 12:51:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: And that is what i hope to see in the future.
(04/14 12:51:14) DimensionTravelerCalum: a place, much like the old Beginner’s Bevin,
(04/14 12:51:25) DimensionTravelerCalum: Where explorers can get together,
(04/14 12:51:27) DimensionTravelerCalum: Of any language,
(04/14 12:51:33) DimensionTravelerCalum: And they…
(04/14 12:51:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: They can find their way.
(04/14 12:51:37) Pote agrees Cal
(04/14 12:51:39) DimensionTravelerCalum: They can make their home.
(04/14 12:51:47) DimensionTravelerCalum: In the end, we all stand here,
(04/14 12:51:50) Pote bows
(04/14 12:51:51) DimensionTravelerCalum: On our journeys so separate
(04/14 12:51:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: And yet,
(04/14 12:51:54) DimensionTravelerCalum: So tied together.
(04/14 12:52:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: There would not have been a second restoration had we not stood united,
(04/14 12:52:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: There would never have been a third if we had not heard the call,
(04/14 12:52:26) DimensionTravelerCalum: We would not have heard it without a reason,
(04/14 12:52:35) DimensionTravelerCalum: The cavern is alive, though slumbering it may seem.
(04/14 12:52:46) DimensionTravelerCalum: And so i close this Heritage Night cycle,
(04/14 12:52:52) DimensionTravelerCalum: Not with words,
(04/14 12:52:56) DimensionTravelerCalum: Not with actions,
(04/14 12:52:58) DimensionTravelerCalum: But a gift,
(04/14 12:53:04) DimensionTravelerCalum: As all cycles are want to have,
(04/14 12:53:10) DimensionTravelerCalum: But seem to be forgotten.
(04/14 12:53:17) DimensionTravelerCalum: Next weekend, I won’t be here,
(04/14 12:53:23) DimensionTravelerCalum: I’ve got surface matters to deal with,
(04/14 12:53:36) DimensionTravelerCalum: And that keeps me away from the new International Hood opening next Sunday.
(04/14 12:53:43) toffy cheers
(04/14 12:53:49) Pote cheers
(04/14 12:53:51) Tom(Samoth): wow!
(04/14 12:53:59) Pote claps his hands
(04/14 12:54:01) [X]: not that you are gone … of course
(04/14 12:54:05) DimensionTravelerCalum: I’ll be leaving a message- a gift to relay to all there,
(04/14 12:54:07) [X]: for the hood
(04/14 12:54:22) DimensionTravelerCalum: And…i hope that it is a good gift,
(04/14 12:54:27) noekje claps her hands
(04/14 12:54:28) DimensionTravelerCalum: One worthy to be given.
(04/14 12:54:30) DimensionTravelerCalum bows
