Er’Cana

Er'Cana

Linked to Er’Cana, reminds me of the cleft. Found a strange square symbol like the one I found on the imager in the Watcher’s Room, I took a KI image dare say its important. I think after this I shall check out some of the older ages in my possession.

What the?
I saw a giant petroglyph of the Fissure, I touched it now I’m in a Bahro cave, except it’s different to the last. There’s a pool of water in the center of the cave and some more numbers, 5:18, plus some strange symbols that looks like the volcano in New Mexico. I think I need to get a KI shot of them, this is not making any sense, less sense than when I started the journey. This path very few have trodden I have no-one to turn to for help.

A search of the Ages revealed nothing new, except at The Cleft where I discovered a pair of D’ni goggles I had overlooked last time I was there. Very pleased I found these, they will come in most handy.

Returned to Er’Cana. Managed to get this strange tram device to work and take me inside the ‘factory’ as I’m currently calling it.

4:52
4:10
What do these numbers mean? Times? Or perhaps book passages, the word?

3:110
I think I’m in D’ni but where? Not sure, I see the familiar glow of the orange lake out of a window.
I have no idea what I’m doing here. Why a Bahro cave with glyphs on the wall that represent power levels in Er’Cana? I wondered if perhaps the number of spikes around the glyphs are the key to what the power levels should be set as. I shall have to wait for the timer to run out then try again.

Temp – 19
Weight – 30
Time – 40

Hope this works.
It kind of worked, I managed to get to these pellet things, the problem is I don’t know where to take them, the Bahro cave or the place in D’ni?
I took one to D’ni put it in the machine, it scanned it then dropped it into the water below, the water began glowing white.

Decided to return to Ahnonay, wonder if any D’ni actually live here still. Managed to get to the island, found a door can’t open it. Found another square diagram and some more numbers. – 3:72

Seems my theory about the numbers was correct, I shall investigate further. One thing still bothering me though is those darn pellets. Perhaps you need to deliver 5 cells to each location, tedious linking back and forth. It is okay from the D’ni location as there is a linking book there back to Er’Cana, but I have to go via Relto every-time I link from the Bahro cave to Er’Cana.

“The door lies at the end of the path.”

This is getting frustrating.

What is going on here? Figured out the Quabs (Discovered references to the crab creatures in some documents I liberated from the DRC, apparently the official name for them is Quabs) were what the clock thing was showing so I chucked them all into the water, the lights went out. Linked out and linked back to find destruction, the age is in ruins, gray skies dark and stormy, trees of crystal. Destroyed the trees, I had to the clock was showing them lit up.

I had no idea such ages were possible, of course its possible the Great Tree makes it so.
Beautiful, a ruptured Ahnonay floating in space.

Things are coming together, three instances of Ahnonay. I follow the shells to link to places that I can’t get to in one instance but can in another. Its like the Truman show, what was Kadish doing?

A New Journey

I recieved a whole pile of books today. 1 Linking Book, the others were “Words”, a set of books writing by a D’ni Seer called The Watcher. I have read about him in the various DRC journals on the D’ni Kings, he wrote a series of books which more or less amounted to a series of prophecies.

I’ve spent the morning reading over them, pretty interesting.

The Linking Book lead to a new location, a round hall like room with an imager in the center, upon the imager is a symbol I have seen in James’ journal, it is the same symbol I know I have seen before..

Of course!

The Cleft!

The hologram of Yeesha forms the symbol during her speech, I can’t believe it took me until now to figure that out.

I must be loosing my edge.

A stair well leads up to a balcony above.

The canvas sheets over the various doorways indicate that the DRC have been here.

I don’t believe it! The Great Tree! I’ve seen photos of this place, have waited to explore this area and now I am here, now if I can just figure out how to get there.

Given the Great Tree, and the fact that there is one of Sharpers Great Tree jackets here, it’s pretty safe to assume this is the Great Tree Pub he was after.

I was right, DRC have one of their notebooks here, one of Simpson’s research books. This place was built long ago for The Watcher apparently. Kadish took ownership of it, started restructuring the place, believed he was the “Grower” that The Watcher spoke of.

Apparently this place is in the J’taeri district of D’ni.

Inside the alcove with the notebook is a couple of Linking Books, will check those out in a bit, first I want to explore the second level.

J'Taeri

Balcony is straightforward, there is an alcove that leads to another room, within this room the walls are engraved with strange markings, almost like calibration settings. The one wall shows an odd looking clock, next to it a small metal plate is set in the ground under a lamp. There is a ramp that curves up and around leading to a giant metal sphere engraved with the symbol of The Watcher.

I assume this is the puzzle game Simpson mentioned. I think I’ll take a look at those Linking Books.

The one to the right of the notebook lead me to an enclosed building, lined with metal and familiar stained glass windows that are also in the Kadish Gallery. At the other end of the corridor like building was another Linking book which lead me to an Age I had seen long ago before the cavern opened from some DRC documentation I stumbled upon but wasn’t supposed to see, this Age was Ahnonay.

Strange Age, filled with funny little crab creatures running around, they seem to run from me when I approach them. I have discovered some Journey Cloths, except unlike the ones which have the spiral hand symbol on them, these have the shell symbol upon them.

There is an island I need to get to, looks like I’m gonna have to swim, maybe a change of clothes would be wise.

Of the lost arc

D'ni

More and more explorers have been sneaking back down into the Cavern, one of them, Max, has deemed the group D’ni Raiders. They are organizing themselves, sending out “Raider Reports” to interested parties.

Up until now we (The Third Path) have been watching from the shadows, keeping ourselves to ourselves, but this D’ni Raider concept interests me and so I have joined up with them.

If this group continues to grow perhaps we’ll have a population down here again, one can hope at least, sometimes the quiet in the cavern is unnerving.

But until then, D’ni Raiders we are.

Keeping Busy

Thing have surprisingly been moving along smoothly seeming it is just myself and Keira who are in charge of TTP, Sophie is still apparently on the surface.

We’ve been working at moving the barriers out, securing areas of the city and Ages, gathering documentation for archiving.

I’ve been studying James’ work, reading his theories about the Bahro and the D’ni enslaving them, there’s also sketch of a symbol which I’m sure I’ve seen before, but I can’t figure out where. I would love to write his research off as crazy, but a lot of it matches up with my own research on the Bahro.

If only I could speak to him..

We ventured up into the higher areas of Ae’gura today, there is a lot of damage up there. We’ve been keeping an eye out for any Books, but between the DRC, Gehn and Atrus, I would say they would be hard to find.

Intruder

Tehren Neighbourhood

Headed back to the Tehren this morning, I found my mood unsettled on the surface, just sat there doing nothing, mourning David. I feel bad for moving on so soon, but I know continuing with our work is what Dave would want.

I Linked in to find another presence in the hood, impossible as it seems (we went to great lengths to shut this hood off from outside visitors) but we appeared to have an intruder.

I followed the intruder to the book room and managed to snap a KI image of them before they vanished through the Nexus book.

It looked a bit like Sophie, but last I heard she was still on the surface.
