Post by Kelsei A. Taylor »

(11/09 16:44:52) Chat.log started...
(11/09 16:47:25) Dni_seeker 5: Hi Kelsei... where are you?
(11/09 16:47:36) Kelsei A.T.: middle landing
(11/09 16:50:02) M'ehrik nods his head
(11/09 16:51:00) Dni_seeker 5: D'ni. The kingdom beneath the surface, where there was the power to write worlds.
(11/09 16:51:13) Kelsei A.T.: mh?
(11/09 16:51:17) Kelsei A.T.: yes, quite a marvel.
(11/09 16:51:22) M'ehrik: keeper of the secrets...
(11/09 16:51:43) M'ehrik: the ancient Uru.
(11/09 16:52:12) Dni_seeker 5: I wish I could have seen this place before the Fall.
(11/09 16:52:43) Kelsei A.T.: alas,
(11/09 16:52:51) Kelsei A.T.: not possible short of a time machine, at this point.
(11/09 16:53:09) M'ehrik: let's get the one in Todelmer *snickers*
(11/09 16:53:22) Dni_seeker 5: all that history... and for what? For two criminals to destroy this amazing place? For the city to be left in ruin?
(11/09 16:53:56) M'ehrik: well, most of the living D'ni are happy on Releeshahn as we speak, I'm sure.
(11/09 16:54:22) Kelsei A.T.: you'll find that in every civilization in the world, there's people who want nothing more than to burn it all down if they can't pretend to be kings.
(11/09 16:54:49) Kelsei A.T.: though, ill say its better to be left in ruins than to be left in the hands of criminals.
(11/09 16:55:16) Kelsei A.T.: a D'ni controlled by Ae'geras and Veovis and their crew of goons?
(11/09 16:55:21) Kelsei A.T.: i shudder at the thought
(11/09 16:55:23) Kelsei A.T. flinches
(11/09 16:55:33) M'ehrik: Let's not forget what the D'ni did to other peoples, and bahro, in their Ages...
(11/09 16:55:39) M'ehrik: They were just people, like us.
(11/09 16:55:44) M'ehrik: Not all perfect.
(11/09 16:56:09) Kelsei A.T. nods her head
(11/09 16:56:11) Obregon: Kinda entitled and imperialistic maybe?
(11/09 16:56:21) M'ehrik: Possibly ;)
(11/09 16:56:41) M'ehrik: But I am not a history buff, couldn't tell you one King from the other, other than Rineref maybe.
(11/09 16:56:52) Kelsei A.T.: same, history isnt my thing,
(11/09 16:56:54) Kelsei A.T.: languages, yes
(11/09 16:56:58) Kelsei A.T.: history, not so much...
(11/09 16:57:18) Dni_seeker 5: I guess you could say that about the D'ni, but let me point out that what happened in Teledahn and Rebek was illegal.
(11/09 16:57:46) M'ehrik: I hope so. I always got the impression what Yeesha talked about was a systemic thing.
(11/09 16:57:58) M'ehrik shrugs
(11/09 16:58:21) M'ehrik: By the way, is Shroomie still in Teledahn?
(11/09 16:58:34) Kelsei A.T.: yes she is,
(11/09 16:58:38) Kelsei A.T.: ive seen her from time to time
(11/09 16:58:42) M'ehrik: Awesome!
(11/09 16:58:48) Kelsei A.T.: as for systemic things...
(11/09 16:59:00) Kelsei A.T.: i do wonder how much the average person was aware of what those in the shadows did?
(11/09 16:59:18) M'ehrik: True.
(11/09 16:59:20) Kelsei A.T.: we only know so much about the well preserved areas of D'ni- the rich areas. the well trafficked ones...
(11/09 16:59:29) Dni_seeker 5: People who don't pay attention might assume that Yeesha always tells the truth. But the truth can be VERY different from the WHOLE truth sometimes.
(11/09 16:59:33) Kelsei A.T.: the lower and less common areas... there's not much to know.
(11/09 16:59:53) Kelsei A.T.: personally, i think Yeesha was trying to point out the flaws,
(11/09 17:00:12) Kelsei A.T.: for everything we knew before her interventions, there were many accounts of people thinking the D'ni could do no wrong...
(11/09 17:00:22) Obregon: Yeesha has been on a crusade ever since she took Bah'ro Studies at UD
(11/09 17:00:37) M'ehrik: I mean, Jalak is basically like D'ni e-sports. The KI is like a super advanced interdimensional smartphone.
(11/09 17:00:49) Kelsei A.T.: whether or not she was trying to paint all of D'ni with a negative brush, or just point out that they were just conflicted people at their core...
(11/09 17:01:00) Kelsei A.T. shrugs
(11/09 17:01:20) M'ehrik: It's a general message, right? Same thing with Gehn on Riven...
(11/09 17:01:23) M'ehrik: or Atrus' sons...
(11/09 17:01:27) Kelsei A.T. nods her head
(11/09 17:01:59) Dni_seeker 5: in any society there will always be people like what Yeesha was describing. The difference is that Yeesha is basically saying "ALL D'NI ARE EVIL SLAVE DRIVERS"
(11/09 17:02:28) Dni_seeker 5: the word that makes it not true is ALL
(11/09 17:02:32) Obregon: Hence my comment about her having taken Bah'ro Studies
(11/09 17:02:39) Dni_seeker 5: Most D'ni are were not
(11/09 17:02:43) Kelsei A.T.: i never got the feeling she was saying that it was 'all' D'ni, in what she said
(11/09 17:02:56) M'ehrik: Same.
(11/09 17:03:08) Kelsei A.T.: there's a lot of nuance to what Yeesha said,
(11/09 17:03:14) M'ehrik: Anyway, D'ni weren't the only people to do what they did. Just the one we know about.
(11/09 17:03:28) Kelsei A.T.: so many folks dismiss what she said as just nonsense- not listening even to the 'blatant' message of anti slavery.
(11/09 17:03:51) Kelsei A.T.: not everyone, mind you, but enough i get frustrated hearing people dismiss what shes said.
(11/09 17:04:13) Obregon: She points out that the D'Ni empire was built at a certain expense of indigenous people
(11/09 17:04:20) Obregon: And slave labor
(11/09 17:04:44) Dni_seeker 5: The Bahro were clearly slaves, but how many people knew about them and how many were okay with it is not known. And Yeesha...
(11/09 17:04:48) Kelsei A.T.: indeed, but when she calls out D'ni for that, is she calling out only those in power, or the average citizens who may not have any way of changing things?
(11/09 17:04:49) M'ehrik: She brought Kadish back to life, right...?
(11/09 17:04:56) Kelsei A.T.: and with the Bahro
(11/09 17:05:13) Kelsei A.T.: as i understand it, not even a Master Guild of Writers guild master knew of them.
(11/09 17:05:21) Obregon: I don't think D'ni was a democracy....
(11/09 17:05:26) Kelsei A.T.: it wasnt,
(11/09 17:05:41) Kelsei A.T.: it was a Kingdom, then it was a guild run system.
(11/09 17:05:55) Kelsei A.T.: the average people never had much say in anything as i understand it.
(11/09 17:06:10) M'ehrik: was the Arch always as clear in the water or did they clean this lake...?
(11/09 17:06:16) Obregon: So how does political change happen in that kind of society?
(11/09 17:06:20) Kelsei A.T.: violently,
(11/09 17:06:37) Dni_seeker 5: the People were not 100% Guildsmen, so... yes, it cannot be a democracy if...
(11/09 17:06:46) Kelsei A.T.: the Mee-dis war is where D'ni's grave was dug, i think...
(11/09 17:06:57) Obregon: the arch and its reflection have looked like this since I've been coming here
(11/09 17:07:06) Obregon: It's lovely, isn't it?
(11/09 17:07:12) M'ehrik: Hmmm. Yes, quite.
(11/09 17:07:19) Kelsei A.T.: there was a revolt, and war, and fighting... and when it failed... D'ni 'calcified' for lack of a better word
(11/09 17:07:23) Kelsei A.T.: became stagnant, unchanging...
(11/09 17:07:37) Kelsei A.T.: the arch is a striking image, yes
(11/09 17:07:53) Kelsei A.T.: the arch of kings- that a King was supposed to sail through...
(11/09 17:08:09) Kelsei A.T.: and then it was left as a monument when the last King left it all to the guilds,
(11/09 17:08:12) Obregon: Can Mir-o-bot fly you over closer to it?
(11/09 17:08:31) Kelsei A.T.: im sure privately you could get someone to get you over to it,
(11/09 17:08:53) Obregon: I only know of mir-o-bot
(11/09 17:09:20) Kelsei A.T.: yes, he'd be one to speak to,
(11/09 17:09:53) Dni_seeker 5: BTW a D'ni returned to the Cavern.
(11/09 17:09:56) Kelsei A.T.: im told its an impressive view, up close on the water.
(11/09 17:10:17) Obregon: Is that the guy whose name starts with a B?
(11/09 17:10:24) Dni_seeker 5: benavud? Yes
(11/09 17:10:29) Obregon: Right
(11/09 17:11:00) Kelsei A.T. glances at her KI
(11/09 17:11:13) Kelsei A.T.: he's still in his relto. i wonder if he's waiting for someone?

(11/09 17:11:33) Dni_seeker 5: Hello, Robert Murry
(11/09 17:11:54) Robert Murry: Shorah Dni_seeker
(11/09 17:11:56) Kelsei A.T.: shorah, Robert,
(11/09 17:12:02) Kelsei A.T.: we're at the middle landing,
(11/09 17:12:12) Kelsei A.T.: if you want to join us, that is,
(11/09 17:12:12) Robert Murry: Shorah Kelsei
(11/09 17:12:19) Robert Murry: Sure
(11/09 17:12:33) M'ehrik: Dni_seeker, where'd you get that hat? I've seen one like that but I forget where...
(11/09 17:12:35) Dni_seeker 5: Have you and/or the detective found anything on that cult?
(11/09 17:12:51) Dni_seeker 5: i got it in another version of Kadish Tolesa
(11/09 17:13:05) M'ehrik: Ah, right!
(11/09 17:13:12) Robert Murry: They appear to have gone underground for now.
(11/09 17:13:14) H.G.: i am eating up the markers like they are yummy truffles .
(11/09 17:13:21) M'ehrik laughs
(11/09 17:13:25) Kelsei A.T.: on the matter of those thieves, someone seems to have found their stash of stolen items
(11/09 17:13:25) Dni_seeker 5: lOL
(11/09 17:13:42) Dni_seeker 5: yes, Tiki's gnome, I've heard.
(11/09 17:13:47) MixolydianScale: im sorry HG is like this
(11/09 17:13:54) Kelsei A.T.: yes, they've begun shipping them through the mail to me.
(11/09 17:14:05) M'ehrik: hey Robert.
(11/09 17:14:22) Kelsei A.T.: i think i've gotten almost everything that got stolen shipped to my front door so far. no return address, but I have my suspicions who's behind it.
(11/09 17:14:24) [PRIVATE] From Dni_seeker 5: is he dressed up as Indiana Jones?
(11/09 17:14:33) Robert Murry: Yes, Tiki has been reunited with his long lost gnome.
(11/09 17:14:46) [PRIVATE] To Dni_seeker 5: i believe so, yes
(11/09 17:15:12) Robert Murry: Hi M'ehik
(11/09 17:15:29) Robert Murry: M'ehrik
(11/09 17:15:41) M'ehrik: :D
(11/09 17:15:55) [PRIVATE] From Dni_seeker 5: Still in Relto...
(11/09 17:15:57) Kelsei A.T.: I think I saw that Ami girl on the surface, not too many days ago, before I started getting everything shipped to me. She seemed more rested than the last time I saw her, if it was her. More put together, I suppose?
(11/09 17:16:09) [PRIVATE] To Dni_seeker 5: maybe send him a message?
(11/09 17:16:10) Dni_seeker 5: You saw Ami?
(11/09 17:16:26) Kelsei A.T.: she's had an annoying tendency of 'stalking' me in the past,
(11/09 17:16:40) Kelsei A.T.: i think she's just afraid of committing to talking face to face, though,
(11/09 17:17:01) Dni_seeker 5: by the way, did you know that here, on Ae'gura, there is a place where one can access an entire Journey One Age?
(11/09 17:17:05) Kelsei A.T.: would rather send me things through the mail rather than give them to me in person and give an explanation of things.
(11/09 17:17:06) Robert Murry: Glitchy
(11/09 17:17:10) Robert Murry: Turi
(11/09 17:17:14) Robert Murry: Hi
(11/09 17:17:25) M'ehrik: The Teledahn linking stone, you mean...?
(11/09 17:17:25) Kelsei A.T. grumbles and checks the time...
(11/09 17:17:31) Robert Murry: Turi
(11/09 17:17:42) Dni_seeker 5: no, I mean the Kadish Gallery
(11/09 17:17:52) M'ehrik: Right. Those doors finally work.
(11/09 17:18:01) Kelsei A.T.: finally, yes, heh.
(11/09 17:18:05) Kelsei A.T.: have for many years now.
(11/09 17:18:16) Kelsei A.T.: let me guess, it's been a while since you've been in cavern?
(11/09 17:18:23) Kelsei A.T.: :) welcome back, in that case
(11/09 17:18:25) [ Auto Shout Enabled ]
(11/09 17:18:36) Superabbit: M'ehrik, when were you last around here?
(11/09 17:18:40) M'ehrik: Thanks! Yeah, very rarely dropped by, but not much since Minkata was opened.
(11/09 17:18:42) Kelsei A.T. supposes folks have wandered out of chat range now...
(11/09 17:18:55) Kelsei A.T.: minkata the age? that was quite a while ago.
(11/09 17:18:57) M'ehrik: It was like a year, maybe... but I missed it.
(11/09 17:18:59) M'ehrik: Yes.
(11/09 17:19:08) Kelsei A.T.: a very well overdue welcome back then :)
(11/09 17:19:09) M'ehrik: there's a chat range!?
(11/09 17:19:16) M'ehrik: thank you :)
(11/09 17:19:20) Kelsei A.T.: yes, it's on our to-do list to get cleared up,
(11/09 17:19:41) Kelsei A.T.: i'd recommend turning on the '/autoshout' command to circumvent it in the meantime
(11/09 17:20:03) M'ehrik: Hello! I am shouting! I think...
(11/09 17:20:09) M'ehrik: Thanks
(11/09 17:20:12) Kelsei A.T.: inter-dimensional reaching buddy and neighbor chats, and yet the danged things choke up if there are more than eight people around you
(11/09 17:20:13) Kelsei A.T.: nonsense
(11/09 17:20:16) [PRIVATE] From Dni_seeker 5: he's either waiting for someone or he's meditating
(11/09 17:20:21) M'ehrik laughs
(11/09 17:21:24) Kelsei A.T. checks the time....
(11/09 17:21:53) Superabbit: Right, the one on the far left
(11/09 17:22:01) Kelsei A.T.: i think ive still got an hour before i need to attend a work meeting.
(11/09 17:22:01) M'ehrik: i'm on GMT+1
(11/09 17:22:23) Kelsei A.T.: late as it is, it's the only time our client can meet with us. tiring.
(11/09 17:22:38) Kelsei A.T. sighs...
(11/09 17:23:05) Kelsei A.T.: why i agreed to go back to work there after all that nonsense, i don't know...
(11/09 17:23:24) M'ehrik: meh
(11/09 17:24:08) M'ehrik: ohh, do people run eder tsogahl still?
(11/09 17:24:17) Kelsei A.T.: yep,
(11/09 17:24:19) Kelsei A.T.: and delin as well,
(11/09 17:24:28) Kelsei A.T.: just usually need to find a group and ask
(11/09 17:24:53) M'ehrik: Nice. I couldn't even find a Delin book lol.
(11/09 17:24:54) Robert Murry: Usually after our music events ,
(11/09 17:24:59) M'ehrik: You need... 8 people?
(11/09 17:25:14) Kelsei A.T.: 8 max, on a good day
(11/09 17:25:32) Kelsei A.T.: id recommend 5 or so experienced folks, who know what they're doing,
(11/09 17:25:32) M'ehrik: Cool.
(11/09 17:25:38) M'ehrik: Okay.
(11/09 17:25:48) Kelsei A.T.: atlernatively, you could ask Iwonk and Scharminius to duo a door for you
(11/09 17:26:01) Kelsei A.T.: those two are *masters* at opening doors on their own
(11/09 17:26:02) M'ehrik: Oh... like, what is that?
(11/09 17:26:07) M'ehrik: Hmm.
(11/09 17:26:16) Kelsei A.T.: it's quite the feat, watching them manage it,
(11/09 17:26:31) M'ehrik: I was in Jalak and I realized you can run on the walls? Not sure if that's intended...
(11/09 17:26:41) Robert Murry: They're our Door Run champs for sure.
(11/09 17:26:42) Kelsei A.T.: the outside stadium walls?
(11/09 17:26:57) M'ehrik: Yes.
(11/09 17:27:08) M'ehrik: You can sort of jump onto it, then run and jump to another, and climb a little.
(11/09 17:27:17) Kelsei A.T.: oh, fun~
(11/09 17:27:58) Kelsei A.T.: some folks enjoy climbing things
(11/09 17:28:02) Kelsei A.T.: its something of a passtime around here
(11/09 17:28:13) Kelsei A.T.: if you haven't been yet, Eder Naybree is full of things to climb on
(11/09 17:28:17) M'ehrik: Yes, quite.
(11/09 17:28:21) M'ehrik: Ohh. Is that via Chiso Preniv?
(11/09 17:28:24) Kelsei A.T.: yes, :)
(11/09 17:28:29) M'ehrik: sweet :)

Re: 11-9-22 Ae'gura and Hood meanderings. (Kelsei, DS5, Robert Murry, Ben, Others)

Post by Kelsei A. Taylor »

[Kelsei soon wanders from Ae'gura to stretch her lags, going from hood to hood.]
(11/09 17:37:21) [PRIVATE] From Dni_seeker 5 in D'ni-Ae'gura: Kelsei, I think we aren't going to see Ben again in a while.
(11/09 17:37:47) [PRIVATE] To Dni_seeker 5: did something happen?
[Kelsei Links to The Great Tree (3) Hood]
(11/09 17:40:32) Kelsei A.T.: oh, hello
(11/09 17:40:46) Dni_seeker 5: Oh, um, that picture you saw, the one with the fancy design on the floor with the four red carpets, it's the entrance to the Great Shaft, and-- hello, Kelsei.
(11/09 17:40:57) Kelsei A.T.: hi, again, DS5,
(11/09 17:41:04) Benavud: Hi, Keslei.
(11/09 17:41:11) Kelsei A.T.: i thought id come visit a populated hood while i wander
(11/09 17:41:12) Benavud: I mean, Miss Taylor.
(11/09 17:41:20) Dni_seeker 5: I think Ben is... leaving.
(11/09 17:41:24) Kelsei A.T.: You dont have to stick to the Miss, Ben :)
(11/09 17:41:27) Benavud: Yeah. I'll be gone for a few months.
(11/09 17:41:33) Kelsei A.T.: i do see the message cycling on the imager.
(11/09 17:41:37) Benavud: I need to learn what it means that I'm D'ni.
(11/09 17:41:49) Kelsei A.T. nods, understandingly
(11/09 17:41:53) Dni_seeker 5: I can't see the whole message.
(11/09 17:41:54) Kelsei A.T.: sometimes you need to soul search.
(11/09 17:42:09) Benavud: I'll stick around for a few days--gotta pack and get ready--but then I'm going to be spending time with Tommen, the D'ni mentioned in Highgarden.
(11/09 17:42:28) Kelsei A.T.: that sounds like a good idea,
(11/09 17:42:30) Benavud: I haven't met him yet, but Mr. Lord communicated with him for me.
(11/09 17:42:33) Benavud nods his head
(11/09 17:42:43) Kelsei A.T.: Keith's a good man,
(11/09 17:42:50) Benavud: I'm going to set aside my KI while I'm with him. I need to do this on my own.
(11/09 17:43:01) Kelsei A.T.: also a wise thought,
(11/09 17:43:11) Benavud: I need to find out who I really am.
(11/09 17:43:18) Kelsei A.T.: Calum's told me about how he 'decouples' from time to time, turning off devices and such.
(11/09 17:43:24) Benavud nods his head
(11/09 17:43:34) Benavud: Mr. Traveller seems like a smart guy.
(11/09 17:43:38) Dni_seeker 5: It stops at "I need to regain my"
(11/09 17:43:38) Kelsei A.T.: he's... well,
(11/09 17:43:55) Benavud: DS5, I put it in twice. The second one should be good.
(11/09 17:44:09) Kelsei A.T.: i see a full message? It might just be cycling through the bad formatting,
(11/09 17:44:16) Benavud: Probably.
(11/09 17:44:17) Benavud: Here.
(11/09 17:44:18) Kelsei A.T.: these imagers can be testy at times
(11/09 17:44:52) Benavud: I'm going to send that pic to everyone else I can think of, but if I miss anyone, say goodbye to them for me, okay?
(11/09 17:44:58) Benavud: Everyone here has been really kind to me.
(11/09 17:45:01) Kelsei A.T.: if i dont get a chance to speak to you again before you leave, Ben....
(11/09 17:45:10) Kelsei A.T. leans right
(11/09 17:45:16) Benavud: Heh, thanks.
(11/09 17:45:18) Kelsei A.T.: take care of yourself, alright?
(11/09 17:45:22) Benavud nods his head
(11/09 17:45:26) Benavud: I will.
(11/09 17:45:38) Benavud: I gotta go get some stuff together.
(11/09 17:45:40) Kelsei A.T.: and don't take any unnecessary risks near cliffs? alright?
(11/09 17:45:49) Kelsei A.T.: keep that relto book on hand even if you dont have your KI on.
(11/09 17:45:51) Benavud: Heh. I won't, Miss Taylor.
(11/09 17:46:03) Benavud: And I'm coming back, I promise. Not sure exactly when, but I will.
(11/09 17:46:11) Kelsei A.T.: i wish you the best of luck on recovering your memories
(11/09 17:46:13) Benavud: See you guys then.
(11/09 17:46:18) Kelsei A.T.: may you find something comforting
(11/09 17:46:21) Kelsei A.T.: ...later...
(11/09 17:46:31) Kelsei A.T. sighs
(11/09 17:47:09) Kelsei A.T.: wish he'd stop zipping off so suddenly
(11/09 17:47:58) Dni_seeker 5: (sighs once again)
(11/09 17:48:15) Kelsei A.T.: hopefully this will be good for him.
(11/09 17:48:28) Kelsei A.T.: hopefully...
(11/09 17:48:34) Kelsei A.T. gazes at the imager for a long moment...
(11/09 17:49:31) Kelsei A.T.: alright, i've got a meeting to get ready for, enough moping.
(11/09 17:49:44) Dni_seeker 5: Okay, goodbye
(11/09 17:49:49) Kelsei A.T. leans left
(11/09 17:50:02) Kelsei A.T.: take care
