(06/22 14:03:25) Calum Traveler: The Town Hall meeting
(06/22 14:03:41) Calum Traveler: back in oh, late 2006, the DRC held a buncha meetings like this, of a sort.

(06/22 14:04:05) Calum Traveler: yes, just KI text
(06/22 14:04:09) [X]: K
(06/22 14:04:27) Jules Lavisham: Just KI text. Makes it easier to log and refer back to.

(06/22 14:05:16) [X]: Hey isa :)
(06/22 14:05:26) Ereshkigal: Oooh, I hope she's okay! Is it broken?
(06/22 14:05:31) Calum Traveler: she's fine, just a little sore
(06/22 14:05:35) Calum Traveler: but resting easy
(06/22 14:05:40) [X]: Good
(06/22 14:05:53) Calum Traveler: she was very annoyed she'd have to miss this, though,
(06/22 14:05:53) Jules Lavisham: That's a relief
(06/22 14:06:10) Calum Traveler: sent me a bunch of her own notes, so, apologies if I'm a bit scattered and unrehearsed during my part
(06/22 14:06:37) Calum Traveler: This is mostly Jules' show to lead though, by vote of Brittish speaking voice opinion.
(06/22 14:06:50) Calum Traveler: :P
(06/22 14:06:53) Jules Lavisham: Heh!
(06/22 14:07:09) Dni_seeker 5: Is everyone here?
(06/22 14:07:11) Jules Lavisham: Being raised on BBC comedies from a young age has to be good for SOMETHING, right
(06/22 14:07:39) ALotOf: no way to drag NoMore over here... he said politics always annoy him... I have time during downloading illegally D'ni movies...
(06/22 14:07:49) Calum Traveler starts to laugh
(06/22 14:07:54) ALotOf: :)
(06/22 14:08:05) Calum Traveler nods to Jules
(06/22 14:08:07) Dni_seeker 5: The D'ni had movies?
(06/22 14:08:12) Calum Traveler: I think that's about everyone we'll get for now
(06/22 14:08:20) ALotOf: Documentaries about them...
(06/22 14:08:23) Cpt.Jericho: Has he found the adult section in the new library?
(06/22 14:08:29) Ereshkigal: I want to see the illegal D'ni movies :)
(06/22 14:08:29) ALotOf: lol
(06/22 14:08:31) Jules Lavisham: Ok, that looks like my cue!
(06/22 14:08:48) Jules Lavisham: Shorah everyone, and welcome to this, the first explorer Town Hall!
(06/22 14:08:49) [X]: 'adult section' is the cue?
(06/22 14:09:04) Calum Traveler snorts and shakes head slightly,
(06/22 14:09:08) Ereshkigal: That's promising :D
(06/22 14:09:15) Jules Lavisham: Those of us who have been taking an active role in restoring ages and new areas of the Cavern are trialling these little get-togethers
(06/22 14:09:19) [X]: Got my interest ;p
(06/22 14:09:36) Jules Lavisham: mainly as a means of giving the explorer communit a chance to generally touch base,
(06/22 14:09:49) Jules Lavisham: let you all know what's been going on
(06/22 14:10:04) Carl Palmner: Taking attendance. Please keep commentary to a minimum while the host is speaking.
(06/22 14:10:09) Jules Lavisham: give you the run down on what's on the agenda in the coming months visa vis new ages and the like
(06/22 14:10:33) Jules Lavisham: Thanks to the tireless efforts of a number of peope - some of whom I'm pleased to see here today -
(06/22 14:10:47) Jules Lavisham: we've seen the Cavern getting a little busier as of late.
(06/22 14:11:08) Jules Lavisham: We've seen some fresh faced newcomes bringing with them an infectious sense of energy and enthusiasm.
(06/22 14:11:31) Jules Lavisham: And we've seen the return of some old hands from decadres past, along with the resurrection of some highly esteemed oganisations from that time.
(06/22 14:11:49) Jules Lavisham: One of which has been kind enough to allow us the use of their neighbourhood for this event.
(06/22 14:12:16) Jules Lavisham: But new or old, seeing all of you bring this old place to life... well, it's been quite the joy to watch unfold.
(06/22 14:12:28) Jules Lavisham: So, yes.
(06/22 14:12:45) Jules Lavisham: The plan here now is to first bring you up to speed with the current goings on
(06/22 14:12:59) Jules Lavisham: and there HAVE been some interesting goings-on, let me tell you.
(06/22 14:13:20) Jules Lavisham: We'll then look at what's coming in the near-future, give you some things to generally keep a look out for,
(06/22 14:13:38) Jules Lavisham: which will include some ways for you to help us with the restoration efforts.
(06/22 14:14:02) Jules Lavisham: But also, we want to give you all the opportunity to influence certain ways in which we go about our work down here.
(06/22 14:14:21) Jules Lavisham: And if all goes to plan, you'll be able to do that very thing here today.
(06/22 14:14:45) Jules Lavisham: Finally, if there's time, we'll have an open Q&A session at the end. Because why ever *not*.
(06/22 14:14:55) Jules Lavisham: Sound good?
(06/22 14:15:04) Thumbs up from [X]
(06/22 14:15:05) Sestra: Yes
(06/22 14:15:06) Dni_seeker 5: yes

(06/22 14:15:19) Jules Lavisham: Tidy.
(06/22 14:15:34) Jules Lavisham: Ok, just before we get underway good and proper, usual AGM rules apply.
(06/22 14:15:56) Calum Traveler: dont press the blue button, etc....
(06/22 14:16:02) Jules Lavisham: Chatter to a minimum where possible if that's ok, any questions get pinged to Carl if called for,
(06/22 14:16:13) Jules Lavisham: yes, for the love of everything, do NOT push the blue button.
(06/22 14:16:21) Jules Lavisham: Seriously. No being That Guy.
(06/22 14:16:28) Calum Traveler: we dont need garbled D'ni over this chatlog, nosiree...
(06/22 14:16:46) Jules Lavisham: Right, ok, let's kick off with current happenings.
(06/22 14:16:51) Cpt.Jericho hasn't seen That Guy for a long time
(06/22 14:16:51) ALotOf: push the red one... thats sirrus... :)

Post by Traveler263 »

[After an unfamiliar explorer interrupted events]
(06/22 14:25:31) Jules Lavisham: Alright. Now, where was I...
(06/22 14:25:38) Isa =^.^=: exactly X
(06/22 14:25:46) Jules Lavisham thumbs through his notes
(06/22 14:25:49) Brigid raises an eyebrow
(06/22 14:25:58) Jules Lavisham: Dear gods, my handwriting's getting worse every year, I tell you...
(06/22 14:26:16) Jules Lavisham: Ah! Here we go.
(06/22 14:26:17) Brigid: Did I miss anything important?
(06/22 14:26:45) Calum Traveler: no, not yet,
(06/22 14:26:46) Jules Lavisham: So yes. For the last few months, there've been a rash of thefts and vandalism taking place here in the Cavern.
(06/22 14:27:10) Jules Lavisham: We've had explorer possessions going missing - writings supplies, restoration equipment, and -
(06/22 14:27:13) Jules Lavisham squints
(06/22 14:27:18) Calum Traveler: a chess set, yes.
(06/22 14:27:20) Dni_seeker 5: and I was attacked!
(06/22 14:27:23) Jules Lavisham: a garden gnome.
(06/22 14:27:23) Calum Traveler: also a garden gnome.
(06/22 14:27:47) Jules Lavisham: Now, over time, these have been escalating
(06/22 14:28:03) Jules Lavisham: in particular with the sabotage of Dr Quinlan's Sanctuary Clinic,
(06/22 14:28:28) Jules Lavisham: complete with being defaced with - well, sentiments that quite frankly have no business being expressed here, or indeed anywhere else for that matter.
(06/22 14:28:33) Dni_seeker 5: At the All Guilds Meeting, I announced that I would restore Todelmer, do you all remember that?
(06/22 14:28:48) Calum Traveler: Dni_seeker 5, in a bit
(06/22 14:28:52) Calum Traveler: let jules speak please :)
(06/22 14:28:53) [X]: :$ no?
(06/22 14:28:57) Dni_seeker 5: alright
(06/22 14:29:15) Jules Lavisham: While it was hoped that those carrying out these activities would eventually move on,
(06/22 14:29:47) Jules Lavisham: only a few days ago we've discovered that the Overflow Station has been straight-up ransacked by a group of masked intruders.
(06/22 14:30:09) Jules Lavisham: While thankfully the Station was unmanned and nobody was injured, extensive damage has been reported to the equipment
(06/22 14:30:35) Brigid swears in gaelic
(06/22 14:30:46) Jules Lavisham: But this was a thorough, meticulously planned endeavour, with the practical upshot of causing significant delay to what we had hoped to have been an imminent public release.
(06/22 14:31:10) Jules Lavisham: There are some steps that we plan to take in the face of this, and its our hope that you will be able to play a part in doing so.
(06/22 14:31:20) Jules Lavisham: We'll get into that in a bit.
(06/22 14:31:44) Jules Lavisham: Right, on cheerier topics, we come to our friend Benavud!
(06/22 14:32:03) Jules Lavisham: A number of you may have had the pleasure of making his acquaintance several weeks ago, in this very hood.
(06/22 14:32:35) Jules Lavisham: But for those who aren't familiar, he is a fellow explorer who took a bad step about a month ago and was found inside the lower levels of the Great Library.
(06/22 14:33:02) Jules Lavisham: Following several weeks of treatment from Dr Quinlan, he's now back on his feet and taken up residence in the cavern,
(06/22 14:33:08) Jules Lavisham: much like many of us has.
(06/22 14:33:24) Dni_seeker 5: He has no memory, no books in his relto, he has a journey shirt, and he's not technically human.
(06/22 14:33:35) Jules Lavisham: We've fielded a few questions about Ben in the past few weeks. To quickly summarise -
(06/22 14:33:46) Carl Palmner: DS5, please let Jules speak. He's hosting this one :)
(06/22 14:33:51) Dni_seeker 5: okay
(06/22 14:34:21) Jules Lavisham: no, his memory is not firing on all cylinders.
(06/22 14:34:52) Jules Lavisham: Yes, the bloodwork in Tenny's recent tests does indicate he's not from this world, despite speaking fluent English and recognising certain aspects of surface culture.
(06/22 14:35:23) Jules Lavisham: And yes, he was found wearing a Yeesha shirt, but he has no Yeesha books in his Relto and he doesn't remember taking the journey.
(06/22 14:35:52) Jules Lavisham: All in all, bit of an enigma all round
(06/22 14:36:09) Jules Lavisham: But then again, that's about par for the course down here.
(06/22 14:36:12) Keith Lord: Oh fun
(06/22 14:36:41) Keith Lord: Sorry, meant to be a PM.
(06/22 14:36:54) Jules Lavisham: Oh yes, while I think about it, I want to welcome Cal back from the age of Rei'schu following a bout of quarentine he had to endure.
(06/22 14:37:11) Brigid raises both eyebrows in suprise.
(06/22 14:37:15) Jules Lavisham: We'll be getting to Rei'schu in a bit, because good LORD that is a whole thing in of itself.
(06/22 14:37:24) Calum Traveler hums slightly
(06/22 14:37:26) Jules Lavisham: But for now, good to see you back on your feet, lad.
(06/22 14:37:38) Jules Lavisham: Right, I think that was -
(06/22 14:37:46) Jules Lavisham: oh yes.
(06/22 14:38:02) Jules Lavisham: It would be remiss of me not to mention what some in the community are calling the "Saturday Prophecies".
(06/22 14:38:12) Jules Lavisham: I won't be dwelling on them too much here,
(06/22 14:38:44) Jules Lavisham: I'm aware that bandying about the prospect of visions and predictions is a sure-fire way to get one's credibility thrown into question from certain quarters.
(06/22 14:39:13) Jules Lavisham: But for those who have interest in these sorts of things, I understand they are documented on both the Forums and one or two explorer blogs.
(06/22 14:39:27) Jules Lavisham: We'll do a quick wrapup of where to find those at the end.
(06/22 14:39:37) Jules Lavisham: Right!
(06/22 14:39:49) Jules Lavisham: I think that's everything that's been happening most recently.
(06/22 14:40:06) Jules Lavisham: Let's get into what's on the agenda.
(06/22 14:40:13) Jules Lavisham: And how you can get involved.
(06/22 14:40:19) Dni_seeker 5: I have something to say
(06/22 14:40:24) Carl Palmner: Jules--by the Saturday prophecies, you mean the visions of Echo and Madame Sophia?
(06/22 14:40:38) Jules Lavisham: That's correct, Carl.
(06/22 14:40:44) Carl Palmner nods his head
(06/22 14:41:05) TikiBear raises his third eyebrow
(06/22 14:41:17) Keith Lord chuckles
(06/22 14:41:24) Robert Murry smirks
(06/22 14:41:31) Jules Lavisham: We'll come to you in a bit, DS5
(06/22 14:41:36) Jules Lavisham: Don't you worry
(06/22 14:41:37) ALotOf does... nothing.
(06/22 14:42:00) Ereshkigal still wonders what to think of all these so-called 'prophets '

Re: 6/22/22 Town Hall #1 - Great Tree Hood, Jules, Calum, Tenny, Carl,

Post by Traveler263 »

(06/22 14:42:20) Jules Lavisham: Right, first of all, we've got some new aras that we are gearing up to offer access to.
(06/22 14:42:44) Jules Lavisham: Firstly is the basement area of Chiso Preniv, where a nuber of those working on assorted restoration projects can be found hanging out.
(06/22 14:43:03) Jules Lavisham: Secondly we have Eder Naybree, whose restoration is being overseen by Cal.
(06/22 14:43:18) Calum Traveler: Kelsei's helped too.
(06/22 14:43:31) Jules Lavisham: This is a garden age written during the Garden Binge period of D'ni history,
(06/22 14:43:31) [X] claps her hands
(06/22 14:43:35) Brigid grins eagerly.
(06/22 14:43:44) Jules Lavisham: split into two pieces by a flowing river.
(06/22 14:44:01) Jules Lavisham: It as been overgrown by a giant, semi-mushroom, semi-kidzu like tree species
(06/22 14:44:08) Jules Lavisham: that Briggs has helpfully named -
(06/22 14:44:15) Jules Lavisham squints at his notes
(06/22 14:44:24) Jules Lavisham: "Chubby Noodle Trees".
(06/22 14:44:25) Calum Traveler stifles a snort and a chuckle... covering it as a cough.
(06/22 14:44:31) Carl Palmner starts to laugh
(06/22 14:44:33) Brigid laughs
(06/22 14:44:37) Calum Traveler: they are very chubby and noodle like
(06/22 14:44:45) Jules Lavisham: Uh, full marks for the descriptors there, Briggs, I have to say.
(06/22 14:44:46) [X]: Chubby noodle tree is what it shall forever be named
(06/22 14:44:54) Brigid: But do they make good soup?
(06/22 14:44:55) Calum Traveler: verily
(06/22 14:45:04) Brigid: Inquiring minds want to know!!!
(06/22 14:45:05) Calum Traveler: not especially,
(06/22 14:45:08) Calum Traveler: they're very hearty roots.
(06/22 14:45:15) Jules Lavisham: And lastly we have Highgarden
(06/22 14:45:19) TikiBear: hardy
(06/22 14:45:33) Jules Lavisham: A small garden area of Fahets, the first Age written by Keith "Tweek" Lord.
(06/22 14:45:38) [X]: Heart of thee roots
(06/22 14:45:45) Carl Palmner: Keith is here today.
(06/22 14:45:52) Keith Lord: Hey I know that guy. He owes me $30.
(06/22 14:45:56) Calum Traveler starts to laugh
(06/22 14:45:58) Carl Palmner laughs
(06/22 14:45:58) Jules Lavisham snorts
(06/22 14:46:16) Jules Lavisham: It's my understanding that Highgarden served as a resting area for The Third Path council
(06/22 14:46:25) Keith Lord nods
(06/22 14:46:34) Jules Lavisham: and has since been prepped for public release so it can be enjoyed by the greater explorer population
(06/22 14:46:56) Jules Lavisham: Now, we#re looking to open up the Chiso basement for public access hopefully sometime next month, touch wood.
(06/22 14:47:08) Jules Lavisham: As for Eder Naybree and Highgarden, well...
(06/22 14:47:22) Jules Lavisham: we'll get to that.
(06/22 14:47:46) Jules Lavisham: Right, Cal, I think you had a couple of words about the Overflow station?
(06/22 14:47:58) Calum Traveler: right
(06/22 14:48:04) Calum Traveler hauls self to feet
(06/22 14:48:11) Calum Traveler: alright so,
(06/22 14:48:34) Calum Traveler: a few months back, on st. patricks day, i was checking the overflow station over after some concerns with the lake health
(06/22 14:48:36) Calum Traveler: paranoia on my bit,
(06/22 14:48:43) Calum Traveler: ya'll probably might remember,
(06/22 14:48:48) [X]: A bit
(06/22 14:48:56) Calum Traveler: i found someone who wasnt supposed to be there, they were working on equipment
(06/22 14:49:04) Calum Traveler: they said they were undoing sabbotage
(06/22 14:49:14) Calum Traveler: naturally, i was, yknow, skeptical, but recent events have me less so
(06/22 14:49:31) Calum Traveler: that person- using a fake name of "Sami Lesgrandee"- was easily spooked.
(06/22 14:49:37) Calum Traveler: shoved me over and ran, havent seen her since,
(06/22 14:49:41) Calum Traveler: didnt have a KI on her either
(06/22 14:49:52) Calum Traveler: much to Kelsei's surprise when she spotted the name on a hood imager a few weeks back
(06/22 14:50:04) Calum Traveler: you might've heard her asking for that KI# if anyone had it,
(06/22 14:50:10) Calum Traveler: well, she got it, reached out- but no response.
(06/22 14:50:30) Calum Traveler: after the incident where I hit my head, I put the whole facility into lockdown
(06/22 14:50:43) Calum Traveler: halted the opperation and such, made sure I knew everything was in order.
(06/22 14:50:56) Calum Traveler: two workers I'd hired for the station soon went missing after going on sick leave,
(06/22 14:51:07) Calum Traveler: i suspect they gave me fake names as well, given recent events.
(06/22 14:51:17) Calum Traveler: those two were spotted occasionally on Tenny's hood's clinic imager,
(06/22 14:51:24) Calum Traveler: skulking around
(06/22 14:51:34) Calum Traveler: and were noted as being there on the night that the clinic was sabbotaged,
(06/22 14:52:02) Calum Traveler: we're fairly certain now that they're involved in all of it, given that when the overflow station was sabbotaged again just recently, new KIs were caught on record,
(06/22 14:52:17) Calum Traveler: two of the names there were obvious scrambles of the previous two names,
(06/22 14:52:34) Calum Traveler: or, well, the original ones may have been scrambles of these ones
(06/22 14:52:36) Calum Traveler: it's hard to tell,
(06/22 14:52:54) Calum Traveler: point is, these people were smart enough to wear wooden carved masks to hide their identities from cameras
(06/22 14:53:04) Calum Traveler: but they wore their KIs, and we got some names and #IDs,
(06/22 14:53:30) Calum Traveler: that's, honestly, all I've got to say on the matter regarding that.
(06/22 14:53:46) Calum Traveler: we're still trying to track down the girl, "Sami" for lack of a better name, to see if she can tell us anything
(06/22 14:54:06) Calum Traveler: i suspect if she's still here in cavern, she's not using that name, however.
(06/22 14:54:35) Calum Traveler: if anyone does see the active ID of "Sami Lesgrandee" it's likely one of these other people using it to try to draw her out, I'd wager.
(06/22 14:55:03) Calum Traveler: ignore them, and don't interact, but feel free to snap a KI Pic and forward it to Carl Palmner.
(06/22 14:55:22) Carl Palmner: They'll need to know the names and KI#s.
(06/22 14:55:36) Jena: if she's in trouble, would be foolish to use name
(06/22 14:55:39) Calum Traveler: similarly, the previous IDs of the other station workers, Fasyk Casing, and Tati Masser- are likely not in use any further,
(06/22 14:55:39) mthemaster (I'm on the surface, be back in a minute):
(06/22 14:55:45) Carl Palmner: I don't have the list on me, but I sent it to Jules.
(06/22 14:55:52) Calum Traveler: we have more relevant KI#s and names,
(06/22 14:55:56) Calum Traveler: which Jules should have, yes,
(06/22 14:55:59) Calum Traveler smiles to Jules
(06/22 14:56:09) Calum Traveler bows aside for the moment
(06/22 14:56:10) Jules Lavisham: Ah, yes, thank you Cal. Let me -
(06/22 14:56:17) Jules Lavisham: ah, here we go.
(06/22 14:56:31) Jules Lavisham: Right, be ready with your note-taking, you lot.
(06/22 14:57:03) Jules Lavisham: We have Mita Staser, ID 11934356
(06/22 14:57:35) Jules Lavisham: Wait, no, thats wrong. Mita Staser is 11934130.
(06/22 14:57:47) Jules Lavisham: We have Case Kafsing, THAT one is 11934356.
(06/22 14:57:59) Calum Traveler: similar IDs, they must've been made near the same time as eachother,
(06/22 14:58:12) Jules Lavisham: We have Sanna Koskelainen, ID 11938528.
(06/22 14:58:29) Jules Lavisham: And lastly Tally, no second name, ID 11934822.
(06/22 14:58:45) Cpt.Jericho: would be Ho
(06/22 14:58:59) Dni_seeker 5: I actually have a funny story about Tally, actually.
(06/22 14:59:02) Carl Palmner: You forgot Marcus Johnson
(06/22 14:59:10) Jules Lavisham: In a slightly more magical world, Captain, certainly.
(06/22 14:59:23) Jules Lavisham: Ah, yes. Do you have his number, Carl?
(06/22 14:59:28) Cpt.Jericho: More magical than D'ni?
(06/22 14:59:32) Carl Palmner: I might. Let me check.
(06/22 14:59:42) Jules Lavisham: Right, while Carl is doing that,
(06/22 14:59:55) Calum Traveler: anyways, i think it goes without saying that these folks have clearly been escalating,
(06/22 14:59:56) Carl Palmner: I have it. Marcus Johnson is 11799065
(06/22 15:00:01) Jules Lavisham: we're after some kind of visual ID, ideally.
(06/22 15:00:20) Jules Lavisham: But do not - on any account, do NOT - engage with them physically.
(06/22 15:00:27) Calum Traveler: yeah, visual IDs only,
(06/22 15:00:31) [X] is scribbling madly
(06/22 15:00:40) Jules Lavisham: If you see them in cavern, take a KI photo, and send it on to Carl.
(06/22 15:00:40) Dni_seeker 5: A few days ago, I was in Todelmer.
(06/22 15:00:56) Calum Traveler: go ahead, DS5,
(06/22 15:01:08) Jules Lavisham: Ok DS5, we've kept you waiting long enough.
(06/22 15:01:09) Dni_seeker 5: And I saw some movement in the room with the telescope controls.
(06/22 15:01:13) Jules Lavisham smiles
(06/22 15:01:22) Carl Palmner: Yes, I'm the one to send the KI photos too. I've agreed to be the go-to guy on that, to relieve the volunteer Restorers of some work.
(06/22 15:01:35) Dni_seeker 5: This is not the appropriate time to SMILE, Jules!
(06/22 15:01:38) Carl Palmner: It would help if you would include in the KI photo who it is and where it is.
(06/22 15:01:57) Dni_seeker 5: I saw some thug in there who was totally destroying the place!
(06/22 15:02:08) Jules Lavisham: Hm. That is indeed nothing to smile about.
(06/22 15:02:14) Tiernan Quinlan is a bit puzzled...
(06/22 15:02:17) Calum Traveler: as i said, escalating,
(06/22 15:02:21) Dni_seeker 5: And when I tried to stop him, he SHOVED ME OFF THE EDGE OF A CLIFF!
(06/22 15:02:36) Carl Palmner: Yes, DS5 discussed this with me previously. For those who don't know, he is working on possibly restoring Todelmer.
(06/22 15:02:39) [X]: You ok?
(06/22 15:02:40) Calum Traveler grimaces
(06/22 15:02:47) Jules Lavisham: ... that is a VERY worrying escalation.
(06/22 15:02:57) Dni_seeker 5: Thankfully, yes, because I had my Relto book on me.
(06/22 15:03:05) Calum Traveler: Todelmer, for a lot of reasons, is one we're wary of given it's previous Bahro influences, but we are looking into it,
(06/22 15:03:09) Carl Palmner: Yes, it's the first known time that one of the troublemakers has attempted murder.
(06/22 15:03:19) [X]: Relto book to the rescue!
(06/22 15:03:20) Calum Traveler: just as Patrick has been working on Direbo, off and on.
(06/22 15:03:32) Dni_seeker 5: Well, I went back there, and the message "NOT YOURS" was spray-painted on a wall.
(06/22 15:03:34) [X]: Saved my potential groom once
(06/22 15:03:39) Ereshkigal: I need to Link out,guys! Thanks for the session; I'll read the logs later!
(06/22 15:03:44) Calum Traveler: later eresh
(06/22 15:03:45) [X]: But thats another story
(06/22 15:03:49) Jules Lavisham: Take care Eresh
(06/22 15:03:51) Calum Traveler: yeah, its a worrying esacalation on the damages done
(06/22 15:03:52) Carl Palmner: DS5 got the KI number, though--it was Tally. He told me about this and we've included Tally's name and KI# in our list. But you can see why we don't want anyone engaging these people physically.
(06/22 15:04:10) Calum Traveler: there wasn't a message left at the overflow station
(06/22 15:04:18) Calum Traveler: which leaves me with a couple of possibilities
(06/22 15:04:22) Calum Traveler: the message wasn't meant for *us*
(06/22 15:04:28) Calum Traveler: or the lack of a message *was* the message.
(06/22 15:04:45) Calum Traveler: in the first case, it's likely these goons are also trying to track down "Sami"
(06/22 15:04:48) Calum Traveler: in the latter...
(06/22 15:05:00) Calum Traveler: i can only assume the attempt was made to demoralize us.
(06/22 15:05:03) Calum Traveler: which it won't.
(06/22 15:05:20) Jules Lavisham: Damn right it won't.
(06/22 15:05:23) Calum Traveler: we've got a few ways to proceed with restoring the Overflow Station, but, we'll get back to that.

Re: 6/22/22 Town Hall #1 - Great Tree Hood, Jules, Calum, Tenny, Carl,

Post by Traveler263 »

(06/22 15:05:24) Carl Palmner: The combination of messages in both the clinic and Todelmer, plus the recent major sabotage, and the string of incidents I recently reported to Kelsei, all lead me to believe this is an organized group.
(06/22 15:05:28) Dni_seeker 5: That is why we don't want to physically engage with these people. Because if the others are anything like Tally, we don't want to find a dead body in Ae'gura.
(06/22 15:05:36) Dni_seeker 5: but we might.
(06/22 15:05:40) Carl Palmner nods his head
(06/22 15:05:48) Calum Traveler: it's possible Benavud fell afoul of them,
(06/22 15:05:50) [X]: o.o
(06/22 15:05:55) Calum Traveler: i've had some folks message me and Kelsei about that
(06/22 15:05:59) Tiernan Quinlan: Aye.
(06/22 15:06:01) Calum Traveler nods at Cpt.Jericho
(06/22 15:06:04) Carl Palmner nods his head
(06/22 15:06:10) Jules Lavisham: So yes. Keep your distance for now. But if you can, grab snaps and send to Carl.
(06/22 15:06:20) Jules Lavisham: It WILL make a difference.
(06/22 15:06:25) Carl Palmner: Yep. I'm going to post the names and KI#s on the forum as well.
(06/22 15:06:46) Jules Lavisham: Right, last thing before we get to some voting,
(06/22 15:06:57) Carl Palmner: Report these people immediately, and the restoration folks can intervene with them.
(06/22 15:07:11) Jules Lavisham: A number of you have been showing Ben around your Journey ages in the hope of blowing a few cobwebs out of his memory
(06/22 15:07:21) [X]: Aye!
(06/22 15:07:23) Jules Lavisham: and from what we've been hearing it's helping him in a big way.
(06/22 15:07:31) ALotOf: NoMore told me.
(06/22 15:07:43) Jules Lavisham: It's of priority importance that he remembers who he is,
(06/22 15:07:52) Cpt.Jericho just tried to be nice
(06/22 15:08:01) Jules Lavisham: especially as the prospect of him being a Book-World is still very much yet to be ruled out for sure right now.
(06/22 15:08:08) Carl Palmner: Yes, actually, Jules, may I make a special mention there?
(06/22 15:08:13) Jules Lavisham: Go ahead, Carl.
(06/22 15:08:22) Carl Palmner: I actually spoke with Ben for the second time a few days ago.
(06/22 15:08:36) Carl Palmner: He told me he's very grateful to explorers Cpt. Jericho, NoMore and Sleeper Jan.
(06/22 15:08:46) [X] cheers
(06/22 15:08:49) Carl Palmner: Just wanted to give them a quick shout-out. Those were the ones who helped him this last week.
(06/22 15:08:55) Carl Palmner: That's all. Go ahead, Jules :)
(06/22 15:08:57) Jules Lavisham: Ah, wonderful stuff
(06/22 15:09:23) Jules Lavisham: Yeah, so if you do see him around and you've got a moment, feel free to do likewise
(06/22 15:09:29) Calum Traveler checks time...
(06/22 15:09:35) Jules Lavisham: Right!
(06/22 15:09:42) Calum Traveler: looks like we're running a bit behind with that interuption earlier,
(06/22 15:09:49) Calum Traveler: let's get to the voiting I think?
(06/22 15:09:54) Jules Lavisham: I reckon so!
(06/22 15:10:14) Jules Lavisham: So earlier I mentioned there would be a chance for explorers to have a say in certain directions that the restoration is looking to take
(06/22 15:10:27) ALotOf: first townhall voting
(06/22 15:10:37) Carl Palmner is excited to have an impact here.
(06/22 15:10:40) [X]: Here we go!
(06/22 15:10:48) Jules Lavisham: So what we're going to do now is put forward some options for you, and you'll be able to pick the one we proceed with
(06/22 15:10:57) Thumbs up from Tiernan Quinlan
(06/22 15:10:57) Cpt.Jericho: Carl, us being here has an impact
(06/22 15:11:16) Jules Lavisham: Reckon the easier way we can do this if when the time comes you PM your choice to me, I tally them up,
(06/22 15:11:16) [X]: And helps you with your impact :)
(06/22 15:11:23) Jules Lavisham: and we move forward with the majority decision.
(06/22 15:11:38) Jules Lavisham: Unless Carl, Cal, Tenny, any of you fancy the job?
(06/22 15:11:54) [X]: Pm our votes to jules?
(06/22 15:11:58) [X]: K
(06/22 15:12:05) Carl Palmner: Yup. PM votes to Jules.
(06/22 15:12:10) Calum Traveler: votes to jules
(06/22 15:12:13) Jules Lavisham: Right, yup, PM them to me.
(06/22 15:12:22) [X]: jules
(06/22 15:12:31) Jules Lavisham: Ok! We've got three of them for you tonight.
(06/22 15:12:38) Calum Traveler: which topic first, jules? some of these have less explanations than others,
(06/22 15:12:52) Jules Lavisham: Get the easy ones out of the way first, Cal?
(06/22 15:12:56) Calum Traveler: yeah,
(06/22 15:13:08) Jules Lavisham: Alrighty.
(06/22 15:13:24) Jules Lavisham: First one concerns the two ages I mentioned before, Eder Naybree and Highgarden.
(06/22 15:13:42) Jules Lavisham: Now, both of these places have some last minute work that needs to be taken care of before they can be opened up to explorers.
(06/22 15:14:00) Jules Lavisham: In respect of Eder Naybree,
(06/22 15:14:07) Calum Traveler: The Tree.
(06/22 15:14:09) Calum Traveler: and the Cliffs.
(06/22 15:14:18) Jules Lavisham: Yes, absolutely.
(06/22 15:14:19) Calum Traveler: it's, uh... a bit of a structural concern.
(06/22 15:14:34) Jules Lavisham: Mmm.
(06/22 15:14:35) Calum Traveler: im fairly certain its stable, but there's some extra checks folks are asking over,
(06/22 15:14:36) [X]: i live dangerously
(06/22 15:14:55) Jules Lavisham: That age's foliage is not to be tusselled with lightly.
(06/22 15:15:05) Calum Traveler: not without some motor enhanced clippers
(06/22 15:15:18) [X]: >.o go on
(06/22 15:15:31) Cpt.Jericho: I have a flamethrower if you want...
(06/22 15:15:33) Jules Lavisham: Now, as for Highgarden...
(06/22 15:15:45) Jules Lavisham: The stability is comparitively solid as a rock.
(06/22 15:16:07) Keith Lord nods
(06/22 15:16:10) Jules Lavisham: However, it's seen a significant reduction in its butterfly population
(06/22 15:16:34) Dni_seeker 5 sniffles... he likes butterflies...
(06/22 15:16:44) Jules Lavisham: And - if I've got this right, Keith - they're showing signs of an infection of sorts on their wings?
(06/22 15:17:01) Keith Lord: That is correct
(06/22 15:17:10) Jules Lavisham nods
(06/22 15:17:17) Keith Lord: Crimson blemishes
(06/22 15:17:22) Calum Traveler shudders
(06/22 15:17:34) Jules Lavisham: So the decision has been take to round up the remaining butterfly population and contain them before granting explorers access en-masse.
(06/22 15:17:52) Jules Lavisham: Right now, we have the manpower to sort out one of these two issues before tackling the other.
(06/22 15:17:58) Jules Lavisham: So our question to you is this:
(06/22 15:18:14) Jules Lavisham: which age do we deal with, and subsequently release, first?
(06/22 15:18:24) Jules Lavisham: Option A: Eder Naybree
(06/22 15:18:32) Jules Lavisham: or Option B: Highgarden
(06/22 15:18:46) Jules Lavisham: Let's have your votes, folks.
(06/22 15:18:49) Carl Palmner: As far as the Ages themselves, I've visited both. Highgarden is, IMHO, prettier, but Naybree has more secrets to discover.
(06/22 15:19:14) Carl Palmner: They are very similar, though--both garden Ages.
(06/22 15:19:30) Calum Traveler: if Direbo had made the security cut, then we could've called this the Garden Quarter.
(06/22 15:19:31) Calum Traveler: alas...
(06/22 15:19:42) Keith Lord: Indeed
(06/22 15:20:46) ALotOf: and will be written in the history books: 'the second garden era'...
(06/22 15:20:55) Calum Traveler: that reminds me, Keith, Kelsei was meaning to ask where you found the Garden structures,
(06/22 15:21:01) Calum Traveler: were those found or hand crafted?
(06/22 15:21:02) Murry: Maybe next quarter
(06/22 15:21:20) Jules Lavisham: Right, last 30 or so seconds
(06/22 15:21:36) TikiBear imagines wrought iron putti
(06/22 15:21:45) Mystlander starts to laugh
(06/22 15:22:10) Jules Lavisham: Right, that's the votes in!
(06/22 15:22:10) Carl Palmner: Do we have a winner?
(06/22 15:22:12) Calum Traveler hums the Jeopardy theme
(06/22 15:22:20) Jules Lavisham quickly tabulates
(06/22 15:22:27) Jules Lavisham: And the winner is...
(06/22 15:22:32) Keith Lord: Which structures? The statues were provided as a gift from a D'ni artisan we discovered trapped on an Age many years back now. The lamps and what not were modelled after those of Kemo.
(06/22 15:22:35) Jules Lavisham waggles his eyebrows
(06/22 15:22:40) Calum Traveler: ah, the latter,
(06/22 15:22:43) Jules Lavisham: Eder Naybree!
(06/22 15:22:44) Calum Traveler: neat!
(06/22 15:22:46) Calum Traveler: o-o
(06/22 15:22:48) [X] cheers
(06/22 15:22:50) Calum Traveler: well then,
(06/22 15:22:52) Isa =^.^= claps her hands
(06/22 15:22:55) Keith Lord cheers
(06/22 15:22:57) Calum Traveler: i guess ill have to redouble those cliff surveys...
(06/22 15:23:00) Carl Palmner: So, to clarify, this means we will get Eder Naybree first, and Highgarden a little later?
(06/22 15:23:01) IwonK claps her hands
(06/22 15:23:07) Jules Lavisham: That's correct
(06/22 15:23:10) Carl Palmner nods his head
(06/22 15:23:12) Tiernan Quinlan claps his hands
(06/22 15:23:19) thor-ham claps his hands
(06/22 15:23:22) [X]: sounds wonderful
(06/22 15:23:24) Carl Palmner: Just want to state again that both of them are really awesome places.
(06/22 15:23:24) Brigid cheers

06/22 15:23:45) Calum Traveler: our next vote is on the Overflow Station
(06/22 15:23:55) Calum Traveler: as i said, we've got two methods of proceeding with this
(06/22 15:24:03) Calum Traveler: Option A:
(06/22 15:24:05) Keith Lord: Yes, I've always been especially fond of Kemo, so thought mirroring some of those elements would be nice for a garden area. Of course later on we got Delin and Tsogahl as well.
(06/22 15:24:09) [X]: another vote?
(06/22 15:24:17) Calum Traveler: More Security- Slower Restoration.
(06/22 15:24:29) Calum Traveler: We take it slow and steady and make sure nobody else gets in to damage the equipment
(06/22 15:24:34) Calum Traveler: only verified personelle only,
(06/22 15:24:41) Calum Traveler: it'll be slower, as fewer people are working on it
(06/22 15:24:52) Calum Traveler: possibly stretching out its inevitable public release by several months, if not a year,
(06/22 15:24:55) TikiBear: As long as their are deadly lasers, I'm in.
(06/22 15:25:04) Calum Traveler: Option B: less security, faster restoration
(06/22 15:25:14) [X]: hm
(06/22 15:25:17) [X]: are we voting?
(06/22 15:25:24) Calum Traveler: we throw caution to the wind, and get the place as redy as we can as rapidly as possible
(06/22 15:25:31) Brigid: If we take option B, what are the odds of losing the whole thing?
(06/22 15:25:33) Murry: how fast?
(06/22 15:25:38) thor-ham wants lasers on fish
(06/22 15:25:38) Calum Traveler: option B is...
(06/22 15:25:39) LividLiquid: If we pick option B, would work effectively stop after, or would we then slowly work up to what the results of option A would be?
(06/22 15:25:58) Calum Traveler: it'll be me pushing most of my project resources onto it
(06/22 15:26:06) Brigid: Much easier to smash than fix things.
(06/22 15:26:12) Calum Traveler: other areas, such as the Cathedral Island, or Pod 12, may take longer to complete,
(06/22 15:26:23) Calum Traveler: essentially on this one,
(06/22 15:26:23) Carl Palmner: Option A will get the area sooner, but there might be more sabotage attempts so not everything may be working. Option B means it will take more time but probably more of it will function.
(06/22 15:26:36) Calum Traveler: have it backwards there from what i listed, carl
(06/22 15:26:38) Calum Traveler: but yes, basically,
(06/22 15:26:40) Isa =^.^=: oh I had that backwards?
(06/22 15:26:47) Isa =^.^=: A is slow and B is fast?
(06/22 15:26:50) Carl Palmner: Sorry I think I flipped that.
(06/22 15:26:56) Calum Traveler: Option A: Slower Restoration. Option B: Faster restoration
(06/22 15:27:02) Isa =^.^=: thx
(06/22 15:27:03) Carl Palmner: A is slow and secure, B is fast and risky.
(06/22 15:27:05) Carl Palmner: Sorry.
(06/22 15:27:25) Brigid: If we pick A, does that mean Cathedral is moved up in the schedule?
(06/22 15:27:33) Calum Traveler: it means you'll see it sooner, yes
(06/22 15:27:49) Calum Traveler: all my work will get done eventually, it's just a matter of priority order
(06/22 15:27:56) Brigid nods
(06/22 15:28:19) Calum Traveler: if there's no other questions on that...?
(06/22 15:28:23) Calum Traveler: are we ready to vote?
(06/22 15:28:23) LividLiquid: Not sure if I missed the answer to my question.
(06/22 15:28:47) Jules Lavisham: I've been getting them sent my way, Cal
(06/22 15:28:52) Jules Lavisham: Anyone else wanting to vote?
(06/22 15:28:57) Calum Traveler: LividLiquid: it's a matter of priority shuffle for me,
(06/22 15:29:01) LividLiquid: Again, if we pick option B, will the work on the age stop, or will we eventually get the results of option A, but far more slowly over time?
(06/22 15:29:01) Carl Palmner: Livid, if you pick option B, we get Overlay sooner but there might still be some damage to it.
(06/22 15:29:09) Calum Traveler: one thing gets done sooner than later,
(06/22 15:29:17) Jules Lavisham: Ok, 30 more seconds or so
(06/22 15:29:28) Jules Lavisham hums the Countdown theme
(06/22 15:29:31) LividLiquid: I don't think I'm being clear.
(06/22 15:29:53) Calum Traveler: sorry, no work wont be stopped completely on other projects
(06/22 15:29:54) Carl Palmner: Hold on Jules
(06/22 15:30:05) Calum Traveler: it'll just be reshuffled around
(06/22 15:30:06) LividLiquid: Alright, nevermind. I don't want to hold up the vote with my confusion.
(06/22 15:30:14) Carl Palmner: I think what Livid is asking is whether or not any damage to Overflow will eventually be fixed.
(06/22 15:30:23) LividLiquid: Yes.
(06/22 15:30:26) Calum Traveler: any damage will eventually be fixed
(06/22 15:30:30) Carl Palmner: Ok.
(06/22 15:30:32) [X]: i'm not sure that matters to us but will it move smoothly for your purposes?
(06/22 15:30:33) Calum Traveler: it just may happen after release
(06/22 15:30:36) LividLiquid: Alright. That changes things considerably. Thank you.
(06/22 15:30:55) [X]: ...storyline and the such
(06/22 15:30:59) Calum Traveler: X, this is literally just a matter of priority arrangement for me,
(06/22 15:31:05) Jules Lavisham: Right, that's voting for this one closed!
(06/22 15:31:08) Calum Traveler: ive got a lot of projects on my plate,
(06/22 15:31:12) [X]: :) k
(06/22 15:31:15) Calum Traveler: i need to direct it at something
(06/22 15:31:23) Carl Palmner: [X], I think it's safe to say that our vote here will affect not only the state and time of the Age, but also the events connected to it ;)
(06/22 15:31:45) [X]: :) ok
(06/22 15:31:49) Dni_seeker 5: technically it's still the same Age that we're in, just a different area
(06/22 15:31:51) Calum Traveler looks to Jules,
(06/22 15:31:57) Calum Traveler: yes, Overflow Station is here in the Cavern, somewhere.
(06/22 15:32:03) Jules Lavisham: Alrighty, we have them in!
(06/22 15:32:05) Carl Palmner: You're right, of course, DS5 :)
(06/22 15:32:12) Jules Lavisham: And you have gone for...
(06/22 15:32:21) Jules Lavisham: a slower, more secure release.
(06/22 15:32:25) Carl Palmner nods his head
(06/22 15:32:27) TikiBear rolls drum down stairs
(06/22 15:32:28) Calum Traveler nods
(06/22 15:32:31) Dni_seeker 5: WHEW!
(06/22 15:32:31) LividLiquid: Wait. I didn't see any votes. Was I supposed to send it via PM to somebody?
(06/22 15:32:33) Carl Palmner: I got one of my votes, and lost the other.
(06/22 15:32:38) Calum Traveler: PM to Jules for votes,
(06/22 15:32:49) Carl Palmner: Livid--PM Jules with votes.
(06/22 15:32:50) LividLiquid: Alright. Thank you.
(06/22 15:32:54) ALotOf: I see it already coming overflow station one day so good sabotaged that we see ferry terminal water flooding the peer and we can wade in water there...

(06/22 15:33:19) [X]: so we will see the more stable garden age first?
(06/22 15:33:25) Carl Palmner: One more vote, I think?
(06/22 15:33:40) Carl Palmner: Both garden ages are stable. We'll get Naybree first.
(06/22 15:33:45) Calum Traveler: speaking of Naybree,
(06/22 15:33:46) Jules Lavisham: Yes, one more.
(06/22 15:33:49) Carl Palmner: It will be stable by release.
(06/22 15:33:51) Calum Traveler: some of you may be in the loop on this,
(06/22 15:34:00) Calum Traveler: the Age was once a home to a survivor of the Fall of D'ni
(06/22 15:34:08) Dni_seeker 5: who?
(06/22 15:34:14) Calum Traveler: that survivor's family had an Age Book, known as Rei'schu, under their guardianship,
(06/22 15:34:24) Dni_seeker 5: oh, right
(06/22 15:34:31) [X]: bless you
(06/22 15:34:34) Carl Palmner: Ok, last vote, last vote!
(06/22 15:34:39) Calum Traveler: yes, it does sound like a sneeze
(06/22 15:34:45) Carl Palmner: I bet it's on who is the handsomest explorer. I vote me.
(06/22 15:34:52) Calum Traveler: there's a reason our internal name for it is "Exten-col,"
(06/22 15:34:57) Calum Traveler: the literal translation of the name
(06/22 15:34:57) Keith Lord: I also vote Carl
(06/22 15:35:06) Carl Palmner grins
(06/22 15:35:11) [X] needs to get a closer look at carl
(06/22 15:35:19) Calum Traveler: Extension, Collection, Exten-col, Rei'schu,
(06/22 15:35:21) Calum Traveler: anyways, the Age is,
(06/22 15:35:22) Calum Traveler: well,
(06/22 15:35:29) Calum Traveler: there's no easy way to say it, but the age is Inhabited.
(06/22 15:35:44) ALotOf thinks of Catcha-col and laughs...
(06/22 15:35:45) Murry: GASPS
(06/22 15:35:47) Cpt.Jericho: Mayn ages are
(06/22 15:35:48) Calum Traveler: after a, ah, recent *incident* where I put myself into an altered state, I used the book,
(06/22 15:35:54) Cpt.Jericho: *many
(06/22 15:35:59) Calum Traveler: and, well, i didnt wear a maintainer suit, so i caught a cold,
(06/22 15:36:04) Calum Traveler: stayed with the locals for a while,
(06/22 15:36:14) Dni_seeker 5: that's the Age you went to when you were under the crystals' spell
(06/22 15:36:17) Brigid: Oh dear!
(06/22 15:36:27) Calum Traveler: to TL;DR it, they're open to some form of cultural exchange,
(06/22 15:36:38) Carl Palmner: Oooo
(06/22 15:36:41) thor-ham needs to give Calum less moonshine
(06/22 15:36:46) Calum Traveler: moons...
(06/22 15:36:52) Calum Traveler: oh boy, dont get me started on those moons.
(06/22 15:36:56) Calum Traveler: they look like cat's eyes.
(06/22 15:37:10) Robert Murry: Crystals?
(06/22 15:37:19) Calum Traveler: yes and no
(06/22 15:37:28) Mystlander needs a new head lamp... wonders if crystals willl work?
(06/22 15:37:30) Calum Traveler: The age suffered a calamity at some point in its history
(06/22 15:37:40) Calum Traveler: the planet is *visibly* stitched together with massive crystal growths
(06/22 15:37:48) Calum Traveler: the moons are in a similar state.
(06/22 15:38:02) Dni_seeker 5: cat's eyes... OH MY GOSH I JUST FIGURED OUT WHAT YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT WITH THE CAT THAT LOST ITS NAME!
(06/22 15:38:10) Calum Traveler: they have a Goddess of some form, that was said to have held the planets together,
(06/22 15:38:21) Calum Traveler: whether she's a real deity, or not,
(06/22 15:38:23) Calum Traveler: doesnt matter,
(06/22 15:38:28) Calum Traveler: there IS something living in those crystals
(06/22 15:38:30) Calum Traveler: many somethings
(06/22 15:38:38) Brigid: Maintainer suits all around then. We don't need something else on top of the recent unpleasantness on the Surface.
(06/22 15:38:40) Calum Traveler: the people use them sort of like how Serenia has its memory globes,
(06/22 15:38:47) Carl Palmner: Also, some of the priestesses there are really pretty. Uh...I didn't notice though, because I'm engaged...
(06/22 15:38:52) TikiBear makes note to chat with Goddess
(06/22 15:39:01) Calum Traveler: yes, they are quite pretty, and also nearly identical
(06/22 15:39:07) Calum Traveler: there's something weird going on there, genetics wise,
(06/22 15:39:15) Calum Traveler: they all look like the goddess herself, too,
(06/22 15:39:28) LividLiquid: Interesting...
(06/22 15:39:30) Calum Traveler: there's a whole bunch of religious stuff in there i dont want to get into right now
(06/22 15:39:32) Calum Traveler: the main point is
(06/22 15:39:33) Jules Lavisham: Damn near had to sedate Ed at one point
(06/22 15:39:35) Robert Murry: I would be very interested in analyzing those crytals.
(06/22 15:39:42) Calum Traveler: we have one major concern over the age,
(06/22 15:39:47) Calum Traveler: and that's its megafauna type wildlife
(06/22 15:39:55) Mystlander thinks cloning may be involved
(06/22 15:39:58) Calum Traveler: when i say their cats are big, i mean...
(06/22 15:40:03) [X]: critters ya say?
(06/22 15:40:09) Calum Traveler: i literally saw a mountain lion the size of a giraffe- before you even get to the neck
(06/22 15:40:11) Carl Palmner cringes
(06/22 15:40:13) TikiBear: Were you riding them, Calum?
(06/22 15:40:16) Calum Traveler: no,
(06/22 15:40:21) Carl Palmner: Yeah...I'm definitely not going back without a Maintainer Suit...
(06/22 15:40:24) Calum Traveler: i saw a huntress kill one, when it tried attacking a village.
(06/22 15:40:25) Jules Lavisham: Got a note in my journal saying "Absolute Stompy Units", Cal.
(06/22 15:40:30) Cpt.Jericho: If the predators ar big, the prey is even bigger!
(06/22 15:40:32) Calum Traveler: it was... Dark Souls Boss Type fighting.
(06/22 15:40:43) Cpt.Jericho: Giant steaks!!
(06/22 15:41:05) Calum Traveler: needless to say, it was not something we're keen on letting the general explorer population get to given, well.
(06/22 15:41:07) Brigid: Note to self, bring down a few long spears on my next trip to the Survace.
(06/22 15:41:09) Calum Traveler shudders
(06/22 15:41:13) [X]: only if you can take them down and toss on the barbie
(06/22 15:41:18) Calum Traveler mumbles something about blood...
(06/22 15:41:18) TikiBear: Have the inhabitants discovered barbeque?
(06/22 15:41:25) Carl Palmner: If this is going to be a vote on whether to release the Age, I think that's a safety issue. We can't have massive amounts of explorers going there. Someone will get kiled.
(06/22 15:41:26) Calum Traveler: oh, yes, they eat what they kill, for sure,
(06/22 15:41:42) Calum Traveler: much like Gahreesen has its murder wildlife and nobody goes into the jungle, Carl,
(06/22 15:41:51) Carl Palmner: Hmmm.
(06/22 15:42:03) Carl Palmner shuts up but looks uncomfortable.
(06/22 15:42:03) Calum Traveler: so, while the people of the age are interested in holding some form of cultural exchange-
(06/22 15:42:04) Brigid: Unleashing this entire horde of weirdos on an inhabited age? Yeah, bad idea.
(06/22 15:42:13) Calum Traveler: certain individuals are definitely going to come visit eventually,
(06/22 15:42:26) Calum Traveler: the nature of our relationship going forwards with this age heavily depends on us
(06/22 15:42:35) Calum Traveler: what do *we* want out of this relationship and such
(06/22 15:42:36) Mystlander is bringing down her 500 pound smoker from the ranch on the surface!
(06/22 15:42:41) Calum Traveler: we'll likely have many votes on this in the future
(06/22 15:42:46) Calum Traveler: but for now we'll start simply,
(06/22 15:43:07) Calum Traveler: Option A: Do we do the bare minimum of cultural contact, and try to prevent too much intermingling for everyones safeety
(06/22 15:43:12) [X] is waiting...
(06/22 15:43:20) Calum Traveler: or B: do we go full on cultural exchange and send ambassadors over?
(06/22 15:43:33) Calum Traveler: vote.
(06/22 15:43:34) Murry: We need to make a small delegation to converse with them before we open the the age.
(06/22 15:43:36) LividLiquid: Ah. The Prime Directive conundrum.
(06/22 15:43:38) Calum Traveler: (Message jules)
(06/22 15:43:40) Carl Palmner: Ah, ok. Ambassadors, I could get behind. That's a little different than a full public release.
(06/22 15:43:41) Brigid: define bare minimum?
(06/22 15:43:48) Murry looks at Robert Murry.
(06/22 15:43:57) Carl Palmner: Calum, if we send ambassadors, can we ensure their safety?
(06/22 15:43:59) Calum Traveler: bare minimum: a few select areas are secured, and people can visit those,
(06/22 15:44:07) Calum Traveler: but no more
(06/22 15:44:28) Calum Traveler: Carl, that's... a hard question to answer
(06/22 15:44:37) Calum Traveler: that's really something we'd have to talk with the locals about...
(06/22 15:44:42) Calum Traveler: given Runa'mei though...
(06/22 15:44:46) Calum Traveler trails off for a moment...
(06/22 15:44:50) Carl Palmner: I'm nervous about this. I didn't feel safe when I was there, except in the actual village where you were.
(06/22 15:45:01) Carl Palmner: I suppose if they wear Maintainer Suits and have training...
(06/22 15:45:06) Calum Traveler: she'd probably be excited about getting to talk with the ambassadors
(06/22 15:45:13) Calum Traveler: she was certainly prodding me for questions about things...
(06/22 15:45:18) Carl Palmner broods.
(06/22 15:45:24) Calum Traveler: that girl took down a massive cat on her own
(06/22 15:45:28) Jules Lavisham: Well, I for one thoroughly enjoyed my time with them
(06/22 15:45:31) Carl Palmner: As long as the ambassadors can be kept safe.
(06/22 15:45:33) Calum Traveler: if anyone could keep the ambassadors safe, it'd be her.
(06/22 15:45:45) Carl Palmner: Well...all right, then.
(06/22 15:45:56) Keith Lord: Maybe we could get Sharper to be an ambassador.
(06/22 15:46:03) Robert Murry: I have experience with encountering unknown tribes. I would volunteer for this effort.
(06/22 15:46:05) Calum Traveler massages at bridge of nose, displacing glasses, with a slight flash of purple...
(06/22 15:46:14) Carl Palmner: I'll abstain from this vote. I think it's a great idea but I worry, too.
(06/22 15:46:19) Brigid: Dear, Maker, NO!
(06/22 15:46:24) Calum Traveler: trust me, carl, i have my reservations
(06/22 15:46:28) Jules Lavisham: Right, any more undecideds?
(06/22 15:46:30) Carl Palmner: I want to vote yes, but I need to think about it some more. So no vote from me at all this time.
(06/22 15:46:31) Brigid: Anyone but Sharper!
(06/22 15:46:36) Calum Traveler: i just saw ONE massive mega fauna
(06/22 15:46:43) Calum Traveler: i dont want to know if there's anything bigger
(06/22 15:46:59) Murry: Okay, what are we voting on here?
(06/22 15:47:17) Calum Traveler: A: A few limited areas, probably no face to face contact
(06/22 15:47:20) Brigid: Gotta run. Will check the logs for the results later.
(06/22 15:47:24) Cpt.Jericho: Cal, if that's the top predator then the prey is at least four times bigger
(06/22 15:47:26) TikiBear: Sending a basket of fruit vs. sending ambassadors
(06/22 15:47:27) Calum Traveler: B: ambassadorship
(06/22 15:48:01) Jules Lavisham: Right, closing, closing...
(06/22 15:48:16) Jules Lavisham: Closed!
(06/22 15:48:17) Mystlander raises hand to volunteer as an ambassador
(06/22 15:48:37) Calum Traveler waits for Jules to tally it up...
(06/22 15:48:55) Calum Traveler fidgits slightly...
(06/22 15:49:05) Jules Lavisham: Alright, and the votes are in...
(06/22 15:49:11) Jules Lavisham: ...
(06/22 15:49:12) Murry: me looks at Robert and gives him a questioning look.
(06/22 15:49:13) [X] wonders why she's nervous
(06/22 15:49:29) Jules Lavisham: we are on for a cultural exchange!
(06/22 15:49:35) Isa =^.^= claps her hands
(06/22 15:49:38) Carl Palmner sighs
(06/22 15:49:39) TikiBear: Yay!
(06/22 15:49:40) Tiernan Quinlan claps his hands
(06/22 15:49:41) Calum Traveler looks half relieved, half stunned, half nervous
(06/22 15:49:44) Mystlander cheers
(06/22 15:49:44) Robert Murry claps his hands
(06/22 15:49:46) Calum Traveler: well then,
(06/22 15:49:49) Carl Palmner: Ok. Well, if that's what we're doing...I volunteer.
(06/22 15:49:50) Jules Lavisham: Looks like I'm going to need to be stocking up on that nice tea they went for.
(06/22 15:49:52) Robert Murry claps his hands
(06/22 15:49:58) Carl Palmner: Someone needs to be there who's going to put safety first.
(06/22 15:50:00) Calum Traveler: i guess I have my answer to give to the Pirestesses,
(06/22 15:50:05) Tiernan Quinlan chuckles.
(06/22 15:50:11) Robert Murry: I volunteer to be on the team.
(06/22 15:50:12) Carl Palmner: Yahvo help me--that place scares me, but that's exactly why I should be there.
(06/22 15:50:13) Jules Lavisham: That's going to keep my supplier in Brighton busy.
(06/22 15:50:14) Isa =^.^=: Mystlander would be very good for that!
(06/22 15:50:16) Dni_seeker 5 clears his throat
(06/22 15:50:21) Calum Traveler: yes, DS5?
(06/22 15:50:30) ALotOf: so it's gonna have to put together a group of assassi... ambassadors...
(06/22 15:50:39) Dni_seeker 5: okay, I actually have nothing to say
(06/22 15:50:43) Calum Traveler: alright

(06/22 15:50:46) [X]: O.O
(06/22 15:50:46) Tiernan Quinlan: As always, I'm available as group medic.
(06/22 15:51:00) Dni_seeker 5: wait, were you about to say ASSASSINS?
(06/22 15:51:03) Carl Palmner: The explorers voted to release Naybree first, to go slow and secure with the Overflow, and to send ambassadors to Rei'Schu.
(06/22 15:51:10) Mystlander pokes DS5

(06/22 15:51:57) Isa =^.^= claps her hands
(06/22 15:51:59) Carl Palmner: I still think the Rei'Schu expedition is a risky idea.
