David Missing

Arrived back in the Cavern today with Keira and our supplies, only to find David has been missing since we left a few days back.

Locating him has been made harder by the fact that the KI’s are not working as intended. So we’re arranging everyone in Tehren to start a search party and look for him.

Supply Run

Heading up to the surface with Keira in an hour for a few days, need to get some more supplies for Tehren.


Quick access to the city was restored today, Dave’s great work got the Nexus working, although access to the Great Zero has been presenting a problem.

The KI is still being worked on, Dave has decided to set up hidden communication stations around the Cavern running on a wireless connection to allow for us to communicate when in D’ni, this solution will not work for the other Ages which is an issue.

We know the DRC ran a similar connection at one point, as evidenced by the “Hood Cam”, shame Victor isn’t around for us to consult with, but I have faith in Davids abilities.



Been busy setting everything up, decided to take a break and head into Ae’gura. Nexus is still down so I had to take an alternative route, using the Bahro Stone in Gira I arrived at the Tokotah Rooftop, I knew the DRC had an alternate way of getting down as there is a wooden ladder up there. Using the ladder to get to the adjacent building then used the rope I had packed to descend into the alleyway.

All very tedious, I think the Nexus and KI needs to be the first thing we get sorted, even if it only had the base functions for Ae’gura access.

For some reason the DRC decided to put the barriers back up, maybe they had anticipated people returning, not that it matters as the barriers failed to stop us from entering closed areas in the past, at least back then you had the chance of being caught by a DRC member, now of course the city is open to us.

The others arrived today, after meeting them on the surface we moved the supplies down to Tehren and started planning what we were going to do next.

February 13th, 2004

I spent the day moving supplies down into the Tehren Neighbourhood and setting up a camp of sorts. It will serve as a central location for our activities. The others will be joining me soon, bringing with them the rest of the equipment we need for our stay.
The silence in the cavern is overbearing. For so long the cavern was a hive of activity filled with sounds of the DRC at work, of people running, talking, and laughing. Now all that I hear is the gentle pulsing of the fans and the occasional splashing of fish in the lake.
At first it was peaceful, it allowed me to think without distraction. But soon the silence became almost deafening, I took to talking to myself or to the treadfish in the lake just to hear some noise.

I did manage to make some progress however, I managed to regain access to the city. It was a tedious effort with the Nexus being down, I had to take the Bahro Stone in Eder Gira to the Tokotah II rooftop, use the DRC’s ladder to move to an adjacent building then climb down with rope. It will be nice when David arrives so he can take a look at the Nexus and see if we can get some sort of access going. Not to mention it would be nice to have someone to talk to.

This silence is playing with my mind. I keep hearing whispers echoing off of the rock and through the streets…I’m sure I can hear footsteps.

Shadows move…I don’t think I’m alone down here.

Is it really surprising? Why would I be the only one who found a way back? The pull of D’ni is strong in many of us of course others would seek to return. To find away, to make a home.

I shall have to keep a quiet eye on the neighbours and see who followed me back down to the cavern.
