Back to Fahets

It’s been a while since I have been back to Fahets, the Age has changed dramatically in the last year or so.

The constant rain had filled up the area surrounding the Link in point, it’s now several feet deep, as a result dormant wildlife has flourished, growing all over the place.
Unfortunately the Roseleaf tree we had implanted into the Age had not been so lucky, the ground it was planted in became so water logged it had nothing to cling to and toppled over and slowly died.

We spent the day looking over the basin, and constructing some wooden decking that we’re thinking of extending out into the rest of the Age, the problem being the rest of the Age is blocked at the moment thanks to the wildlife so we’ll have to look over that.

Seeming that there is technically not that much to sort out, we should be good to release the Book for the Age soon. We just need to run some tests on the wildlife, and we can always release the Age in stages and just allow for visits to the initial Link in point.

Tochoortahv/Cass

Work has been progressing well lately despite the set backs like flooding.

Cass

The room has been cleaned up and I have added a book of commentary.

Thankfully the fire hadn’t cause as much damage to the structure as I had first thought.

I’m hoping we can get the hall all sorted out and opened up soon for people to explore.

Given its new purpose, I have renamed Tochoortahv, Cass. Seeming Cass will serve as my home, I thought it appropriate that it should be named after the street where my wife and I got our first house together.

Future of Tochoortahv

We couldn’t decide what to do with Tochoortahv, that said we did decide that trying to remake the Age to fit the initial concept once again would be folly. Chances are the same thing would happen again and we would not what that, it’s a waste of our time, energy and resources.

So Tochoortahv has been handed over to me, not quite sure what I shall do with it yet, I have a few ideas mulling around.

We’re still not sure who did the actual damage, and thus far we’re out of leads and the investigation has hit a dead-end. A few people have been assigned to keep checking things out in the hope we find out who did it, but I’m not expecting much. In the mean time we’re returning our focus to the other projects we’ve got going. And I’m turning my focus to the new Age I’ve been working on for a few months now, a simple place which serves as an experiment to some concepts I had thought of.

I must confess I’m pulling a bit of a Gehn on this one, and working with some concepts pulled from other Descriptive Books. Hopefully however I’ve set a good foundation for these borrowed concepts to work from and the Age will be stable. The next few days will see as I am about to put the finishing touches to the Age which I called Sul (named after the Goddess Sulis).

Tochoortahv Status Update

It has been a long day.

Investigation showed that the fire had been set on purpose with the identification of an accelerant being used to burn the Books.

Steven has identified the two Linking Books remaining in the Age as being those of Artas and Orth, the Tailehn Book has been consumed by fire completely.

Thanks to Whil and Erik the text carved into the wall had been translated which said;

ahrotahntee
rihl’choorahlehnah

Outsiders will not learn the Art.

Spent most of the morning in Tehren with the others discussing what the next step will be. Given the text that was left in the Age, we believe that a D’ni survivor took offense at either us providing the means for people to start learning the Art or took offense to the fact that we “explorers” are actually writing Ages.

Whilst we haven’t reached a complete decision yet, we agree that cleaning the Age up and placing all the documentation again would be unwise and would probably result in a repeated attack.

In the next few days I expect we’ll decide what to do.

Tochoortahv Damaged

Stopped by Tochoortahv after a report on the forums about a fire in the Age.

A quick visit indeed showed the Age had been burned, and not accidental.

All that work, that documentation, up in smoke, lost 3 Linking Books too.

Not sure what the D’ni on the wall says, asked Steve to take a look at it.

All that work put into it and someone goes and does this, words cannot describe how angry I am about this.

Will have more to report later after Keira and her team investigate.
