Eder Delin

Eder Delin The DRC had some troubles releasing the Age, seems some damaged books were placed in the hoods and a few books to Eder Tsogahl got mixed in there too. So all the books were pulled out and later replaced. Had a quick conversation with an explorer who managed to get into Tsogahl, I don’t think he tried to get through the door there. It’s strange what things bring out the worst in people, I was in one of the hoods making my way to the Delin book and just as I was about to use it some guy barges past and uses it first, terribly rude some people.
I followed to find a lot of people there, the Age is small yet very pretty, started work on classification already. The Age has the same door and cloths that Tsogahl has the people there we trying to open the door up, it never happened unfortunately and Steven wasn’t there so I guess that means he went through it.
It didn’t take long to figure out how to open it, the problem lies in the fact that you need about 8 people at least to do it. I shall try opening it later, apparently the cave leads to another Bahro Cave and a stone ring. I guess this new journey means that there is a new chapter to my journal waiting to be written.

The Coup

Today the fruits of our labour have been revealed, today the D’ni Network launched. And I am happy to say that so far the feedback has been good.

We don’t have to worry ourselves with the red tape that the explorers have been throwing at us anymore. I feel that there is promise in this project.

Met with Cate yesterday in Kemo, she told us Delin is being opened tomorrow, which is good means I can go and find Steven, got a quick KI off of him last night saying something about being very cold and needing a jacket. Will have to pack one when I visit if he is still there…if those thoughts about the door are correct then I would expect he has gone through it. Apparently a new area of the city is opening tomorrow, my money is on the Library.

Hope I can get a Delin book to put in the DJC Neighbourhood.

Dropped by Tehren the RestorersGuild’s hood to us their laptop, I say theirs its actually “on loan” from the DRC, but it is one of the ones they used for the Hood Cam so it’s got a connection to the surface which is what we need it for. Been working on fixing the photo gallery on Beneath, and Denis fixed the aggregate script for UruBlogs so thats all working, Erik mentioned some CSS issues I need to address, however they are not on the top of my priority list right now so it may be a couple of days till I get around to fixing them.

Interesting Concept

I spent a while sitting in Gira today, my feet in the water, the Tsoidrai swimming around them working on a new design for Beneath. I was thinking about the post I read on the DRC site earlier that John had written.

I’ve heard people talking about making a home in D’ni (some say its from a Yeesha speech but I don’t really understand where or how they hear it, but that’s really not part of this thread) and I think its a great idea.

However I haven’t done it. I feel more like an explorer or a tourist or a visitor. I don’t really feel like I’ve made a home. Even Relto seems more like a pit-stop to me then a home. And my hood feels more like somewhere to talk with people.

So how about people here? Do you feel like you’ve made a home somewhere in D’ni (or one of the Ages)? If so, what did you do?

It is an interesting thought, reading through its surprising how many people feel more at home in D’ni than Relto, I wonder if the nature of the Age has anything to do with this, high quiet place or the busy city?

Where do I feel at home? Aside from with Kehra that is.

Well I happen to feel at home with my first Relto book, I actually have two books. After the DRC pulled out of D’ni, I retreated to my Relto, for the next three years I visited and lived there, adding items chipping away rock to make more rooms, the Age even has a power source thanks to the Fireplace Relto Page. This Age is my home, it has a bed its where I work, as it is my home its not the Relto that most people visit.
My second Relto once belonged to my sister, she was in fact the person who first told me of D’ni, as a result it was I who introduced her to D’ni for real. She started to take the journey but later decided that D’ni was not for her she is now off in the world doing her own thing and she gave her Relto to me. So I finished her journey, gathered her pages and her Relto became mine.

Would I feel more at home if I had a location in D’ni to call my own? I guess thats something that will be answered in the future.

Events

So its been 9 days since Steven went off to see if he could find out what Age the DRC were planning to release to us next. Course since then news filtered out that the age was going to be Eder Delin.
So I guess thats where he is..not sure he hasn’t contacted me like he usually does. The reason I am concerned is that some new KIimages of Eder Tsogahl was released recently, they are interesting shots showing a new version of a Journey Cloth and a new Bahro Door. I thought nothing of it until another explorer pointed out that the strange shape in one of the Delin images that we have been speculating about is very similar to the door seen in Tsogahl? A new journey? If its a door like in Tsogahl I bet thats where he has gone.. I’m sure it wouldn’t have taken him long to figure out how to open it.

It has been a long and stressful week. The DRCL structure is collapsing, Wolfie decided to step down the other day and I have stepped down myself today. I also decided to pull my membership from The Great Tree group, I don’t think cavern politics has a place in my life anymore…I thought I had learned from last time I guess not. Persuing knowledge is a far wiser path to take.

My parting “gift” for the community will be the notebook I have been writing, that will hopefully be left in the hood classrooms.

I guess that extra KI I obtained will come in handy, hopefully it hasn’t been damaged by the Bahro event on the 19th of December..it was inactive so I don’t see why it should be.

How Things Change

Today I surprised myself.

More information has been filtering down about “Cate”, with many interesting and humorous theories on who she is. Some are complaining about her being “in control” of the DRC, some are mad at the DRC that Cate is there in the first place.

Me?

Well I am quite happy to just sit back and see what happens, to wait for the annoucement that is coming up. Now this is what surprised me, back in the day I used to be impatient about events going on in the Cavern, or with Ages/Areas being opened. Now I’m not, I feel that it’ll happen when it happens.
What caused this change? Was it the 2 years of being around the Cavern without the DRC? Was it the waiting for funding to return but expecting it to take more than 2 years? Perhaps it was a combination of all of these aspects.
