Post by Traveler263 »

[After the AGM]
(05/07 13:54:50) Calum Traveler slumps to the floor, tired
(05/07 13:54:51) Jules Lavisham: Nicely done Cal, as ever
(05/07 13:54:51) MindWalker cheers
(05/07 13:54:51) philipgr: Thanks calum :)
(05/07 13:54:54) Minasunda claps her hands
(05/07 13:54:54) ShilohOBrien: I owe you a drink Calum, but I figure you'd rather go take a nap.
(05/07 13:54:55) Madame Sophia: Oh my.
(05/07 13:55:00) Madame Sophia: What an interesting meeting.
(05/07 13:55:14) Madame Sophia: I have something to say, but I didn't want to interrupt.
(05/07 13:55:24) Madame Sophia: If...if that's okay. I'm rather new down here.
(05/07 13:55:29) Kayara: sure
(05/07 13:55:29) Madame Sophia: My name is Madame Sophia.
(05/07 13:55:34) PodHopper: The last cavern tour for this seoson was last month I'm afraid...
(05/07 13:55:40) Jules Lavisham: Madame Sophia! Hello!
(05/07 13:55:45) Madame Sophia: I wanted to wait for your meeting to end.
(05/07 13:55:47) PodHopper: season
(05/07 13:55:50) ShilohOBrien: Welcome to the Cavern, Madame!
(05/07 13:55:50) Madame Sophia: Oh, Jules?
(05/07 13:55:54) Frobozz: Thanks, Podhopper.
(05/07 13:55:56) Madame Sophia: I didn't know you were here.
(05/07 13:56:13) Jules Lavisham: Same! How've you been? Been a few years
(05/07 13:56:27) Madame Sophia: Indeed. How is that young psychic you wanted advice about?
(05/07 13:56:30) Madame Sophia: What was her name?
(05/07 13:56:50) Cody Herd: welcome Madame
(05/07 13:56:52) shokhootahn Rehn: Bahro
(05/07 13:56:56) Jules Lavisham: Echo? She's doing good, still kicking about down here.
(05/07 13:57:10) Madame Sophia: Excellent. I should love to meet her sometime. Although maybe not down here.
(05/07 13:57:17) Scharminius looks around for Narcissus
(05/07 13:57:18) Madame Sophia: I'm not really a fan of being underground.
(05/07 13:57:23) Kayara: Madame sophia I think you two might want to discuss this topic in private.
(05/07 13:57:31) Madame Sophia: Which is why I don't think I'll stay long.
(05/07 13:58:01) Madame Sophia: I just have to bring a message to the people here. I was going to speak to the leaders, but upon arrival I learned that there really aren't any.
(05/07 13:58:06) caver1: I'm at home underground.
(05/07 13:58:15) shokhootahn Rehn waves goodbye
(05/07 13:58:20) Maurus: A... message?
(05/07 13:58:25) ShilohOBrien raises an eyebrow
(05/07 13:58:34) Madame Sophia: Yes. A premonition, actually.
(05/07 13:58:45) Madame Sophia: Oh my, I should clarify. I'm really not used to this place.
(05/07 13:59:02) Jules Lavisham: It's alright. Take your time.
(05/07 13:59:06) Madame Sophia: I'm a psychic. I have premonitions of the future--well, of possible futures.
(05/07 13:59:08) Madame Sophia coughs
(05/07 13:59:25) Madame Sophia: Oh, dear, the air here is not good for me. I really won't be able to come down here often.
(05/07 13:59:46) Jules Lavisham pats his pockets
(05/07 13:59:48) Madame Sophia: My premonitions sometimes come as visions, but more often they come in words, which is what happened this time.
(05/07 14:00:01) Diranda listens, quietly interested.
(05/07 14:00:07) Taliana mutters something about possible Bahro interferences.
(05/07 14:00:22) caver1: What words?
(05/07 14:00:29) Korov'ev: the power of Randi compels you
(05/07 14:00:33) Madame Sophia: I came down here because this premonition...is about you, here in the cavern.
(05/07 14:00:54) Madame Sophia: I should preface this by saying that not all of my premonitions come completely true, due to free will. The future isn't set in stone.
(05/07 14:01:07) Madame Sophia: What i see are the most likely futures. And they can be averted, if they're bad.
(05/07 14:01:15) Madame Sophia: This one, I think might be bad.
(05/07 14:01:16) Dni_seeker 5: Who is your premonition about?
(05/07 14:01:30) Madame Sophia: It's about those of you down here in...Dunny, right?
(05/07 14:01:33) Jules Lavisham gulps
(05/07 14:01:35) Dni_seeker 5: d'ni
(05/07 14:01:35) Madame Sophia coughs
(05/07 14:01:44) Madame Sophia: D'ni. My apologies.
(05/07 14:01:59) Madame Sophia: Here is the premonition, which came to me in a trance:
(05/07 14:02:19) Madame Sophia: "Danger comes to those who seek /
(05/07 14:02:33) Madame Sophia: A good tree grows in a far corner of the cavern /
(05/07 14:02:49) Madame Sophia: A branch rots and falls. Its withered husk takes root and grows /
(05/07 14:03:04) Madame Sophia: A malicious tree grows in a far corner of the cavern /
(05/07 14:03:14) Madame Sophia: The son of the lost empire must choose the tree."
(05/07 14:03:21) Madame Sophia: That was the entire message.
(05/07 14:03:31) Diranda: Hmmm...
(05/07 14:03:33) ShilohOBrien: Well...
(05/07 14:03:34) Jules Lavisham: ... Well.
(05/07 14:03:38) Madame Sophia: I don't know what it means--I never do.
(05/07 14:03:39) Keith Lord: Interesting.
(05/07 14:03:52) Dni_seeker 5: The lost empire MUST be D'ni
(05/07 14:03:56) Madame Sophia: But most of my premonitions do come true, although they are sometimes vague.
(05/07 14:04:03) Jules Lavisham: Abstract. But I've yet to hear a prophecy that wasn't, to be honest.
(05/07 14:04:11) Diranda tilts her head to the side.
(05/07 14:04:16) Diranda: Same.
(05/07 14:04:16) Madame Sophia: I don't know, Dni_seeker. I knew nothing about D'ni before I came here.
(05/07 14:04:21) ShilohOBrien: Wasn't there a quote in Buffy the Vampire slayer that prophecy is a hack so that some god can eventually say "I told you so."?
(05/07 14:04:24) Madame Sophia: I didn't even know Jules was a part of this group.
(05/07 14:04:24) Taliana stows away the notebook she's been scribbling in all the time.
(05/07 14:04:29) Calum Traveler: often my gripe with prophecies, their vagueness.
(05/07 14:04:30) Madame Sophia coughs.
(05/07 14:04:30) Korov'ev wanders if the trance came in liquid or smoke form
(05/07 14:04:31) Cody Herd: hey you all have a great day ive go to leave
(05/07 14:04:39) Calum Traveler: but if Jules vouches for your, Madame, i'll take it on faith,
(05/07 14:04:47) TikiBear: Who would be the son of the lost empire? A D'ni in disguise among us?
(05/07 14:04:47) Diranda: Same.
(05/07 14:04:48) Taliana smiles at Shilohs remark.
(05/07 14:04:51) Madame Sophia: This air really is not good for me. And all of this stuff with the KI, these magic books...it's a bit much for me.
(05/07 14:04:57) Dni_seeker 5: OH MAN what if the word "SEEK" is revealing who is in danger?
(05/07 14:05:08) Taliana: Bye Dulca!
(05/07 14:05:13) Madame Sophia: I think I will go back to my home on the surface. I doubt I'll return, unless another premonition comes to me about the cavern.
(05/07 14:05:21) Jules Lavisham: Well, I'll send you my details so we can at least keep in touch, Sophia.
(05/07 14:05:23) Dni_seeker 5: that would mean Eternal Seeker and myself
(05/07 14:05:26) ShilohOBrien: Later, folks. Gotta run.
(05/07 14:05:28) Madame Sophia: Thank you for listening to me. I realize that many don't believe in psychics. I do urge you to believe in me.
(05/07 14:05:29) TikiBear: Be well, madame Sophia
(05/07 14:05:33) Madame Sophia coughs.
(05/07 14:05:38) Kayara offers Madame Sophia a cup of hot chocolate to calm her nerves.
(05/07 14:05:40) Jules Lavisham: At the very least we can meet up at the ABC next time I'm in Boston.
(05/07 14:05:40) Diranda: Thank you, Madame.
(05/07 14:05:42) Madame Sophia: Thank you, TikiBear.
(05/07 14:05:50) LividLiquid: Not necessarily. If the Divination. Never what you think it's going to be.
(05/07 14:05:57) Madame Sophia: Now, let's see, I have to touch the picture in this book, right?[
(05/07 14:06:00) Madame Sophia: Like this?
[Madame Sophia Reltos]
(05/07 14:06:09) Calum Traveler chuckles
(05/07 14:06:13) TikiBear: Yes.
(05/07 14:06:15) Calum Traveler: ...friend of yours, Jules?
(05/07 14:06:20) Taliana waves bye to Madame Sophia.
(05/07 14:06:22) Diranda: That was... different.
(05/07 14:06:28) Dni_seeker 5: and then the two trees... there is one on the surface and one in D'ni
(05/07 14:06:30) Maurus: indeed
(05/07 14:06:31) Taliana: Special, I'd say.
(05/07 14:06:32) TikiBear: It works like magic. But, isn't.
(05/07 14:06:36) Diranda: Does this happen often, Dr. Lavisham?
(05/07 14:06:38) Jules Lavisham: Yes. One I've not heard from in forever.
(05/07 14:06:41) Calum Traveler: i heard you mention Echo... McKenzie right?
(05/07 14:06:59) Calum Traveler: havent had a chat with her in ages...
(05/07 14:06:59) J'Kla says stop!
(05/07 14:07:00) J'Kla: chatlog
(05/07 14:07:03) Jules Lavisham: More than you'd think, Diranda
(05/07 14:07:05) Keith Lord: Oh, Echo and Sophia together would be a fun time.
(05/07 14:07:11) Dni_seeker 5: LAVISHAM? as in Julian Lavishan?
(05/07 14:07:17) Taliana checks the time so as not to miss story night - again.
(05/07 14:07:19) Diranda: Unusual. I'll have to make a note of it.
(05/07 14:07:38) Jules Lavisham: Yes, when I first met Echo I started researching her condition, hoping to understand it better
(05/07 14:08:00) Calum Traveler: well, like i said, im not one for prophecy, but if you vouch for her words, ill take 'em.
(05/07 14:08:01) LividLiquid: Just once I'd like a psychic to have a specific, unambiguous vision.
(05/07 14:08:14) Jules Lavisham: One of the places it took me to was the Astral Bureau of Circulation, in Boston
(05/07 14:08:34) Diranda: Oh, I've heard a little about that.
(05/07 14:08:52) Dni_seeker 5: Wait a second... if there are two trees... The son has to pick one...
(05/07 14:08:54) Jules Lavisham: I met Madame Sophia there. She helped give me an understanding of the field, shift some of the quackery from the actual psychoscience behind it all
(05/07 14:09:21) Diranda: A friend of mine studies things like that. She may have mentioned it.
(05/07 14:09:43) Jules Lavisham: In my time I've met maybe a handful of people who were on the wavelength when it comes to these sorts of matters
(05/07 14:10:05) Jules Lavisham: Echo's one. Sophia is the other.
(05/07 14:10:06) Diranda glances back to where Madame Sophia vanished. "I hope she's alright. She did seem shaken."
(05/07 14:10:14) Calum Traveler blinks at the word 'wavelength' - as if thinking of something.
(05/07 14:10:30) Theo: Korov'ev invokes the "Spirit of Randi" or some such, and we get this?
(05/07 14:10:32) TikiBear: I remember how... jarring... linking was at first.
(05/07 14:11:07) Calum Traveler: wavelengths, eh...?
(05/07 14:11:09) Jules Lavisham: As to her words themselves...
(05/07 14:11:15) Diranda nods to TikiBear.
(05/07 14:11:24) Calum Traveler: i think Korov was cracking a joke, Theo. ;)
(05/07 14:11:59) Jules Lavisham: Well, I'll leave those for someone a little more versed in abstract thought to ponder
(05/07 14:12:17) Calum Traveler: yeah, prophecies often dont mean what they seem to at face value,
(05/07 14:12:23) Calum Traveler: part of my gripe with Watchers,
(05/07 14:12:39) Aurelias: Why is it prophecies always seem to arrive in verse?
(05/07 14:12:40) Diranda: I'm sure someone here might be able to make sense of it.
(05/07 14:12:43) Calum Traveler: a little *too* neat how his Words seem to imply things in D'ni history.
(05/07 14:12:46) Calum Traveler: etc etc.
(05/07 14:13:08) Jules Lavisham: I don't put much truck in them myself
(05/07 14:13:08) TikiBear: If I spoke in prose you'd soon find out I don't know what I talk about
(05/07 14:13:13) Calum Traveler: ill scrape the text from my agm log and throw it on the forums,
(05/07 14:13:17) LividLiquid: Reminds me of Ahnonay.
(05/07 14:13:25) Calum Traveler: maybe someone can figure it out.
(05/07 14:13:26) Diranda: I'll write it down and put it on the Beneath forum.
(05/07 14:13:33) Calum Traveler: oh, that could work too,
(05/07 14:13:34) Jules Lavisham: Real life is far too chaotic to follow any kind of narrative structure
(05/07 14:13:36) Keith Lord: Thank Calum, I wouldn't mind taking a look over it
(05/07 14:13:39) Diranda nods
(05/07 14:13:56) Diranda: Oh yes, the more minds on it, the better!
(05/07 14:13:57) Calum Traveler: i'll post the chatlog to the transcripts section then,
(05/07 14:14:22) Diranda smiles.
(05/07 14:14:22) Calum Traveler: ill leave discussion thread generating to one of yall.
(05/07 14:14:25) Calum Traveler smiles tiredly
(05/07 14:14:33) Diranda nods.
(05/07 14:14:34) Calum Traveler: after that i'll have to get back to Naybree,
(05/07 14:14:39) Calum Traveler: got some roots to trim back,
(05/07 14:14:39) shineyjo (I'm on the surface, be back in a minute):
(05/07 14:14:43) Calum Traveler: fast growing buggers...
(05/07 14:14:45) Diranda tilts her head at Calum...
(05/07 14:14:58) Calum Traveler: yeah, im well aware how that whole thing is one giant tree.
(05/07 14:15:00) Jules Lavisham: Ah. Need help with a spot of gardening again, Cal?
(05/07 14:15:01) Taliana: Take care.
(05/07 14:15:06) Calum Traveler smiles uneasily.
(05/07 14:15:11) Calum Traveler: probably,
(05/07 14:15:17) Calum Traveler: but it's medatative
(05/07 14:15:22) Calum Traveler: ive got a good set of powered cutters now
(05/07 14:15:25) Diranda: There is that.
(05/07 14:15:52) Calum Traveler: ill see yall later.
(05/07 14:15:53) Jules Lavisham: Ah, good show. Well, if ever you need to go analogue again, my collection is at your disposal.
(05/07 14:15:59) TikiBear waves goodbye
(05/07 14:16:00) Calum Traveler waves goodbye
(05/07 14:16:01) Taliana waves goodbye
(05/07 14:16:05) Calum Traveler: thanks for the offer, Jules.
(05/07 14:16:13) Jules Lavisham: Anytime.
(05/07 14:16:16) Calum Traveler: later...
