Fahets Wildlife

The last few days have found me returning to Fahets. Met again by the constant tiresome rain that the Age is known for amongst the Third Path members. The pumps we were using to keep the water out haven’t been able to keep up with the onslaught, as a result Sophie is now looking into something that is better suited to the job.
She’s been looking at the heavy duty ones we used in Cass along with some that the teams found in D’ni in the past.

She tells me we may have something to put in the Age tomorrow if we’re lucky (by lucky she means if she pulls an all nighter).

Currently work is hindered by a bout of thick fog, which has made it hard to see more than a meter in front of oneself, not to mention the dank musky smell and taste it leaves in your mouth.

My focus during my return has been to the wildlife that has grown remarkably quickly in the Age. The most curious of these plants are some strange pods (that I have named Norapods) that have grown, akin to cigars in shape. They have a mottled blue/yellow coloured skin which at first appears firm, but when touched you can feel that they are softer inside. We cut one of the ones near the Link in point open to investigate further, the inside was indeed a lot softer, juicy one might say, which a structure that reminds me of a tomato. We took the top half back to be tested to see if it contains anything dangerous.

Into the City

Our previous expedition into the City had proved fruitless in regards to finding some Ink and Books to bolster our failing supply.

As a result I’ve decided to head back up with Sophie and search some other areas of the city to see if we can find anything.

I’m worried there may not be anything left after being plundered by Gehn and other explorers. At this point I’m thinking we need to look to the lake and the private islands there, although I don’t think we’ll find any in K’veer.

I’m just waiting for Sophie to meet me here at the Ferry Terminal before we head up.

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.
