Fahets Map

Fahets Map

December 5th, 2014

It’s been difficult juggling the various projects and studies I have on the go. I’m still sifting through all the information and Ages the DRC sent us trying to make sense of it all and compile various documents that will be required when the Ages are opened to the public.

I have managed to locate specimens of the beetles the D’ni used for the ink making process on one of the Ages passed over to our group. These specimens have been rehoused on Fahets in an enclosed environment as I do not wish to introduce a foreign entity into the Fahets wilderness as it could be disastrous. If I have learned anything from past issues it is that the Ages are about balance and harmony, it does not take much to cause disruption.
Sadly my luck with Korteenea and the properties that make up the books has not been so successful. There are still Ages to visit and perhaps I will find the answers I seek there.

Pirahnay… I just…wow…
We’ve been working on this Age, exploring it for months now…but this…

This explains Fehnir’s House. Why…how did I not piece this together sooner?

There must be more of them in the cavern.

I yearn to explain the discoveries we’ve made on this Age but I can’t, I shouldn’t. The others should learn for themselves they should have the satisfaction of it. I want to find others…

As cold as Venalem is I find it rather pleasant in comparison to Dahtahmnay. As fascinating as Dahtahmnay is the coldness of the Age puts me off wanting to spend any length of time there.

Venlam is quite frankly remarkable, all the little components in the Age that lock together to build an ecosystem that works remarkably well for what the D’ni used it for.
Whilst I sadly did not discover any specimens of the beetles I did get chance to study the machinery there and how the process worked. I think with some experimentation I may be able to duplicate it on a smaller level.
The machinery needs some work before it is in working order again, but if we can get it repaired and the Age released we could have a source of ink for the community providing we can find a source for the beetles.

In the mean time I have set aside a Korteenea and bottle of ink for study, perhaps I can unwrap some of the mysteries of the manufacturing process. Small brush strokes to reveal the larger picture.

Locating ink and Korteenea continues to be an issue. We have gone through multiple locations in both Ae’gura and the City Proper in search of both. But over the last 200 plus years the stocks have been plundered by various groups and by other explorers looking to Write their own Ages. In the mean time our own meager supply is slowly dwindling as is my own personal stock.
Without new sources of Ink and blank Books they will soon become an even rarer commodity.

I am hoping one of the Ages passed on to us by the DRC will help with one of these problems. Venalem is an arctic Age where the D’ni bred beetles to be used for the manufacturing of ink. Despite my tiredness I think a trip to this Age is required, if I can learn more about the beetles and how the ink is formed perhaps I can start making my own.
The D’ni used pods native to the Age in a machine that would spin them slowly with the beetles inside, this would speed up the life cycle of the beetles and bring them to maturity faster. I just hope there are live specimens of the beetles to be found would they be on Venalem already or did they import them from another ink Age I had heard of?
