(03/19 22:02:44) Chat.log started...
(03/19 22:03:34) thoekenem: the DI tour last week was really fun...
(03/19 22:03:38) Kelsei A.T.: evening, all
(03/19 22:03:54) Anatheia: .shorah Kesei A.T.
(03/19 22:03:55) HenryMikel: Good Evenin' Kelsei A.T.
(03/19 22:04:06) thoekenem: we did a tour of ages by TikiBear
(03/19 22:04:13) Kelsei A.T. slips in on the end
(03/19 22:04:18) thoekenem: shorah Kelsei
(03/19 22:04:20) Anatheia: Has he added a lot of new things, thoe?
(03/19 22:04:47) thoekenem: a skydiving age
(03/19 22:05:20) Anatheia: The Duck Knee place?
(03/19 22:05:22) thoekenem: maybe some new things in the flying cauldron?
(03/19 22:05:28) thoekenem: yeah
(03/19 22:05:30) Kelsei A.T. smiles faintly and sips at a coffee mug of something ambiguously chocolately smelling...
(03/19 22:05:54) Anatheia: Mmmm...that sounds good, Kelsei.
(03/19 22:06:06) Kelsei A.T.: it's good to unwind with.
(03/19 22:06:45) thoekenem: hot chocolate would be nice before bed
(03/19 22:06:47) Kelsei A.T.: chocolate milk of any temperature is good and relaxing, really, as long as you dont have any specific allergies.
(03/19 22:06:50) Kelsei A.T.: that was my thought
(03/19 22:07:01) Kelsei A.T.: i thought id drop in and take a few minutes to unwind before heading to bed.
(03/19 22:07:10) Anatheia: We're glad that you did.
(03/19 22:07:22) Kelsei A.T.: thanks.
(03/19 22:07:26) Anatheia: .shorah brokenben
(03/19 22:07:39) Kelsei A.T.: shorah,
(03/19 22:07:48) Kelsei A.T. waves politely, then sips at her drink some more...
(03/19 22:08:12) brokenben: hello Anatheia
(03/19 22:08:34) Murry: Shorah brokenben
(03/19 22:08:49) brokenben: hi Murry
(03/19 22:09:26) Kelsei A.T. double checks for her Naybree Journal and a pen before scribbling a bit into it...
(03/19 22:10:25) Anatheia: Someone mentioned it to me yesterday though.
(03/19 22:10:31) Kelsei A.T.: hm?
(03/19 22:10:34) Anatheia: LOL
(03/19 22:10:44) Anatheia: The first part of my sentence was deleted...
(03/19 22:10:48) Kelsei A.T.: ah.
(03/19 22:10:52) Anatheia: I don't know anything about Naybree.
(03/19 22:10:53) Kelsei A.T.: danged KIs,
(03/19 22:11:23) Kelsei A.T.: Naybree's a Garden age, popular enough to have a posting at a Library at the time of the Fall
(03/19 22:11:30) Kelsei A.T.: not sure which library- could've been one of many-
(03/19 22:11:52) Kelsei A.T.: regardless, it became the home of a Survivor during the Fall,
(03/19 22:12:05) Kelsei A.T.: that's the basic summary of it.
(03/19 22:12:23) Anatheia: Thanks
(03/19 22:12:31) Kelsei A.T.: i'll actually be digging into the old archives tomorrow to see if we can find out anything on who wrote it
(03/19 22:12:50) Kelsei A.T.: well, I'll be doing the work, and keeping an eye on Calum while he reviews security stuff, likely.
(03/19 22:13:16) Thumbs up from Anatheia
(03/19 22:13:31) Kelsei A.T. stares out at the lake for a long moment, before furiously scribbling into her journal...
(03/19 22:14:07) Anatheia: The lake is inspiring...
(03/19 22:14:18) Kelsei A.T.: mhm, it can me
(03/19 22:14:33) Kelsei A.T. clicks her pen's pushbutton a few times
(03/19 22:14:39) Kelsei A.T.: can be,
(03/19 22:14:42) Kelsei A.T.: sorry. tired.
(03/19 22:14:51) Kelsei A.T.: it's been a couple of days.
(03/19 22:15:33) Anatheia: Burning the candle at both ends, huh?
(03/19 22:15:57) Anatheia: .shorah BrennanMTB
(03/19 22:15:58) Kelsei A.T.: mostly just keeping Calum under watch after the fall he took the other day.
(03/19 22:16:03) Kelsei A.T.: doctors orders,
(03/19 22:16:11) Anatheia: I do hope that he will be okay.
(03/19 22:16:15) Kelsei A.T.: i had to lug him up to the surface with a few precarious links
(03/19 22:16:22) Kelsei A.T.: it's not the bump to the head i'm worried over,
(03/19 22:16:26) Kelsei A.T.: rather, not directly.
(03/19 22:16:27) Anatheia: Oh?
(03/19 22:16:30) Kelsei A.T.: it's...
(03/19 22:16:33) Kelsei A.T. frowns a bit...
(03/19 22:16:42) Anatheia: .shorah mafasa )
(03/19 22:16:46) Kelsei A.T.: i don't know if you heard or not, but Calum had an age he was working on, Vertigo?
(03/19 22:16:51) Kelsei A.T.: lots of very weird crystals.
(03/19 22:16:52) Murry: The Crystals?
(03/19 22:16:55) Kelsei A.T.: feels like you're being watched.
(03/19 22:17:10) Kelsei A.T.: he did some experiments with those crystals and it left him...
(03/19 22:17:10) Anatheia: I haven't heard about the crystals.
(03/19 22:17:14) Kelsei A.T. struggles for the right word...
(03/19 22:17:25) Kelsei A.T.: let's just say he was sleepwalking
(03/19 22:17:32) Kelsei A.T.: and doing things he didnt remember after.
(03/19 22:17:33) Anatheia: Oh no!
(03/19 22:17:45) Kelsei A.T.: it stopped once I confiscated the specific experiment he was working on,
(03/19 22:17:57) Anatheia: It's a really good thing that you intervened.
(03/19 22:18:06) Murry: I thought you warned him to stay awy from those things?!
(03/19 22:18:10) Kelsei A.T.: but... well, the other night I caught him talking in his sleep,
(03/19 22:18:21) Kelsei A.T.: he hadn't gone anywhere near the age in the last few days,
(03/19 22:18:42) Kelsei A.T.: but i'm worried the bump to the head got him in a similar mind state again.
(03/19 22:19:02) Anatheia leans right
(03/19 22:19:06) mafasa leans left
(03/19 22:19:13) Kelsei A.T.: if you see Calum wandering around muttering nonsensically, just... try to at least write down anything he says?
(03/19 22:19:13) Murry: Shorah Mufasa
(03/19 22:19:29) Anatheia: Certainly, Kelsei!
(03/19 22:19:43) mafasa: Shortah murry
(03/19 22:19:49) Kelsei A.T.: I have no idea if it means anything, but he was talking about free floating seeds.
(03/19 22:19:50) Anatheia: Do you think that it might be important?
(03/19 22:19:59) Anatheia: Hmmmm...
(03/19 22:20:08) mafasa: Shoah kelsei
(03/19 22:20:10) Kelsei A.T.: the last time he was like this he was talking as if he was vaguely... i don't know, in tune with something?
(03/19 22:20:13) Kelsei A.T.: shorah, Mafasa
(03/19 22:20:15) Murry: We need to get Calum to see Dr. Quinlan.
(03/19 22:20:15) Anatheia: And you have no clue what he had reference to?
(03/19 22:20:19) mafasa: shorah brennan
(03/19 22:20:35) Kelsei A.T.: not explicitly, no, it was a strange couple of nights.
(03/19 22:20:42) Anatheia: Excellent idea, Murry.
(03/19 22:20:48) Kelsei A.T.: one point he got super upset over some unknown spirits being upset a train wasnt crashing!
(03/19 22:21:10) Kelsei A.T.: utterly bizzare, really,
(03/19 22:21:18) Anatheia: Very bizarre!
(03/19 22:21:40) Kelsei A.T.: i think his mind was processing things in a couched manner?
(03/19 22:21:47) brokenben: hey, i'm new here. and i don't think i have a right to say so. but ...get that man to a doctor. a bump on the head, that alters the brain, is kinda SERIOUS.
(03/19 22:21:48) Kelsei A.T.: like, a subconscious puzzling effort maybe?
(03/19 22:21:56) Kelsei A.T.: i have.
(03/19 22:21:58) Anatheia: The closest thing to a train that I've seen down here in the cavern is the harvester in Ercana.
(03/19 22:22:05) Kelsei A.T.: i took him to one when i found him.
(03/19 22:22:14) Kelsei A.T.: yes, that was my thinking in retrospect
(03/19 22:22:21) TikiBear waves hello
(03/19 22:22:28) Kelsei A.T.: i know Hazado and Adam were doing some work on the Harvester at the time,
(03/19 22:22:39) Kelsei A.T.: it's possible his mind was taking that and re-framing it subconsciously?
(03/19 22:22:45) Murry: Shorah TikiBear
(03/19 22:22:57) HenryMikel: Shorah Tiki
(03/19 22:23:03) Kelsei A.T.: he didnt remember any of it after, so it's possible he might say something important if he's working on it in the back of his mind...
(03/19 22:23:08) Kelsei A.T.: shorah, tiki
(03/19 22:23:10) TikiBear: Shorah, Murry, Ana and Henry!
(03/19 22:23:18) Kelsei A.T.: but, honestly, i may just be overthinking things
(03/19 22:23:25) TikiBear: .shorah, Kelsei!
(03/19 22:23:29) Kelsei A.T.: and it may just be harmless sleep talk.
(03/19 22:23:39) Kelsei A.T. sighs, and scribbles into her journal some more...
(03/19 22:23:46) brokenben: does anyone not think a brain injury is serious?
(03/19 22:23:52) Kelsei A.T.: i do,
(03/19 22:23:57) Kelsei A.T.: i took him to a doctor when i found him
(03/19 22:24:01) Kelsei A.T.: and ive been keeping an eye on him
(03/19 22:24:01) Anatheia: I don't know...I think that our dreams are often a compilation of things that we've encountered throughout the day.
(03/19 22:24:02) brokenben: it is very serious
(03/19 22:24:04) Murry: I wonder if he might have tapped into some stored memories in the crystals...
(03/19 22:24:05) brokenben: damn
(03/19 22:24:14) Kelsei A.T.: but i can only keep watch on him so much
(03/19 22:24:18) Kelsei A.T.: i have my own life, after all.
(03/19 22:24:41) Anatheia: It's very kind of you to help him in whatever way that you can, Kelsei.
(03/19 22:24:45) Kelsei A.T.: to be frank, the head trauma is les sof a concern than the changes the crystals may have made
(03/19 22:24:49) Anatheia: I'm sure that he appreciates it.
(03/19 22:24:54) brokenben: does he not have family? or friends? or neighbors?
(03/19 22:24:57) Kelsei A.T.: he was sleeping with the damned things near him when the sleep walking started.
(03/19 22:25:06) Kelsei A.T.: his grandmother's away on a vacation,
(03/19 22:25:14) Kelsei A.T.: and he doesn't live with his parents for very strained reasons.
(03/19 22:25:15) Anatheia: Of course! Especially, since we really know nothing about the crystals.
(03/19 22:25:30) Kelsei A.T.: as for friends, i think we down here in the Cavern come the closest.
(03/19 22:25:46) Kelsei A.T.: he hasn't mentioned anyone who isn't an online acquaintance atleast.
(03/19 22:26:01) Kelsei A.T.: the crystals are... very strange,
(03/19 22:26:07) Kelsei A.T.: i'm half inclined to believe they're actually sentient,
(03/19 22:26:22) Kelsei A.T.: the other half of me thinks they may be acting as a relay to something... with a much greater psychic presence?
(03/19 22:26:37) Kelsei A.T. shakes her head, and mumbles something about Payiferen.
(03/19 22:26:38) Anatheia: That's somewhat troubling.
(03/19 22:27:00) Murry remebers some studies on crystal storage research
(03/19 22:27:03) Kelsei A.T.: honestly, the fact of the matter is, he's been messing with these crystals since before he found the cathedral island adn I was called in.
(03/19 22:27:22) Kelsei A.T.: that was... october 2020, i think? that he found the island, atleast.
(03/19 22:27:36) Kelsei A.T. gumbles...
(03/19 22:27:38) Anatheia is shocked and shakes her head in disbelief.
(03/19 22:28:26) Kelsei A.T.: honestly, I don't think I've ever known him without that exposure,
(03/19 22:28:44) Kelsei A.T.: Carl and Patrick probably are closer in that regard, among the restoration team,
(03/19 22:28:53) Kelsei A.T.: they haven't said anything's off with him, atleast.
(03/19 22:29:45) Kelsei A.T.: but, well, times change and people change too. it's worrying, to a degree.
(03/19 22:29:48) Anatheia: They would probably know...
(03/19 22:30:10) Anatheia: ...but, I still think it's wise to keep an eye on him.
(03/19 22:30:14) Kelsei A.T.: I've talked with Patrick before about the crystals from Vertigo- he's got that damned 'wifi' experiment locked up somewhere safe
(03/19 22:30:23) Kelsei A.T.: yes, i'll be keeping my eyes on Calum for sure.
(03/19 22:30:33) Kelsei A.T.: but i can't watch him all the time, unfortunately.
(03/19 22:30:34) Kelsei A.T. sighs
(03/19 22:30:51) Kelsei A.T. sips at her coffee mug again, downing more of it...
(03/19 22:31:00) Anatheia: "wifi" experiment?
(03/19 22:31:00) TikiBear: Calum? The crystals got to him long ago.
(03/19 22:31:12) Kelsei A.T.: yes, his experiment was tying a KI device into a Wifi Router,
(03/19 22:31:20) Kelsei A.T.: and having the crystals serve as a bridge
(03/19 22:31:38) Kelsei A.T.: i honestly couldn't fathom how any of it worked- some of it barely looked soddered together.
(03/19 22:31:44) Anatheia: LOL
(03/19 22:31:55) Anatheia: Gotta start somewhere, I guess.
(03/19 22:32:02) Kelsei A.T.: the real concern was that it apparently only worked when he had other crystals on his person,
(03/19 22:32:14) Kelsei A.T.: the router at his house, linking to the crystals, somehow,
(03/19 22:32:38) TikiBear: The problem with the crystals itaht that they're nonlinear. Exposre to RF creates signals of higher frequencies.
(03/19 22:32:56) Kelsei A.T.: another concern, there, for sure.
(03/19 22:33:25) Kelsei A.T.: honestly, i've just been stressing to Calum to not do anything alone anymore
(03/19 22:33:36) Kelsei A.T.: he always seems to get into some kind of trouble on his own.
(03/19 22:33:53) TikiBear: Not that I'd be one to talk...
(03/19 22:33:55) Kelsei A.T.: i don't think he's *built* for solo work, if that makes any sense?
(03/19 22:34:15) Anatheia: He's adventurous, imaginative, and a free spirit. I'm afraid there's not a lot that you can do.
(03/19 22:34:31) Kelsei A.T.: i suspect he gets that from his grandfather, though i never got a chance to meet the man.
(03/19 22:35:08) Anatheia: At least he comes by it honestly.
(03/19 22:35:11) Kelsei A.T.: everything I've heard about him from Calum indicates he was one of those people.
(03/19 22:35:41) Kelsei A.T. smiles
(03/19 22:36:03) Kelsei A.T.: i just hope all of this blows over quietly.
(03/19 22:36:09) Anatheia nods her head
(03/19 22:36:21) TikiBear: To be fair... the Corsair uses crystals from Jo'nae hood for power and propulsion. Spectacular discharges are created.
(03/19 22:36:25) Anatheia: .shorah Clutch Cargo
(03/19 22:36:51) TikiBear: .shorah, Clutch!
(03/19 22:36:54) Kelsei A.T.: the Vertigo Crystals, to my understanding of Calum's notes, were written to be some kind of hybrid of Tay and Rime crystals, from the games.
(03/19 22:36:58) Kelsei A.T.: shorah, clutch.
(03/19 22:37:19) Kelsei A.T.: but that was all Calum wrote INTO the Descriptive, so instead of the crystals growing in an age,
(03/19 22:37:20) Anatheia: Ahhhh...
(03/19 22:37:22) Kelsei A.T.: the crystals *are* the age.
(03/19 22:37:35) Kelsei A.T.: it's... frankly it's like something out of a dream
(03/19 22:37:56) TikiBear: .shorah, mafasa!
(03/19 22:38:04) Kelsei A.T.: i don't really know how else to describe it.
(03/19 22:38:20) Kelsei A.T.: it's unnerving being there. like it doesn't feel real.
(03/19 22:38:20) brokenben: a bump on the
(03/19 22:38:54) Kelsei A.T.: personally i dont think the age is befitting a release ever, but some folks seem to think it's just a matter of understanding how it works, and what the crystals really are.
(03/19 22:38:56) TikiBear: Being late the the party I don't know where "there" is.
(03/19 22:39:09) Kelsei A.T.: Vertigo, the age the crystals come from, that we were talking about.
(03/19 22:39:13) Kelsei A.T.: sorry, ive been kind of rambling.
(03/19 22:39:13) Anatheia: I'm afraid, with all of the concern about the effects that the crystals are having on individual's that I would be quite hesitant to get near them.
(03/19 22:39:38) Kelsei A.T.: nobody else who's been there seems to have suffered any ill effects,
(03/19 22:39:47) Kelsei A.T.: the worst I get is a feeling of being watched while being there,
(03/19 22:39:48) Anatheia: That's a relief.
(03/19 22:39:55) Anatheia: Ewww
(03/19 22:40:03) Kelsei A.T.: it's not a... judgy kind of watch?
(03/19 22:40:14) Kelsei A.T.: like... it's... more like a curiosity maybe?
(03/19 22:40:38) Kelsei A.T.: there's certainly not anybody living there that could be watching us unless you count the crystals.
(03/19 22:40:48) Kelsei A.T.: the age is literally as uninhabited as it can get, otherwise.
(03/19 22:40:54) TikiBear: What color are the crystals?
(03/19 22:40:58) Kelsei A.T.: multi colored
(03/19 22:41:06) Kelsei A.T.: they also seem to change colors under the right influences,
(03/19 22:41:09) Kelsei A.T.: and they glow, too.
(03/19 22:41:10) Anatheia: It sounds like their "learning from us".
(03/19 22:41:16) Kelsei A.T.: Calum was using them as lamp lights for a time,
(03/19 22:41:18) Anatheia: they're*
(03/19 22:41:34) Kelsei A.T.: they're definitely capable of evolving under directed thought, alright.
(03/19 22:41:44) Anatheia: Wow!
(03/19 22:42:01) Anatheia: I need to call it a night, gang. Good to see everyone!
(03/19 22:42:08) TikiBear waves goodbye
(03/19 22:42:09) Kelsei A.T.: oh yes, i ought to too
(03/19 22:42:11) Kelsei A.T.: it's late
(03/19 22:42:15) HenryMikel: Have a Good Night Ana
(03/19 22:42:16) Kelsei A.T.: have a good night, anatheia
(03/19 22:42:21) TikiBear: Take care Ana and Kelsei!
(03/19 22:42:22) Anatheia: Take care, and Kelsei, do keep an eye on Calum when you can!
(03/19 22:42:25) Kelsei A.T.: i will be
(03/19 22:42:34) Murry: I too need to say Goodnight.
(03/19 22:42:36) Kelsei A.T.: heading back now to keep an eye on him overnight, just in case...
(03/19 22:42:41) TikiBear: Take care. Murry!
(03/19 22:42:49) HenryMikel: Bye Murry
(03/19 22:42:51) Kelsei A.T. waves goodbye
(03/19 22:42:51) Anatheia waves goodbye
(03/19 22:43:10) Kelsei A.T.: take care, all
