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.


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.
