(07/27 17:07:54) Tiernan Quinlan: Ah, Jules...
(07/27 17:08:11) Jules Lavisham starts scrabbling around in the crates
(07/27 17:08:20) Tiernan Quinlan: Y'breakin' out y' private reserve?
(07/27 17:08:24) Tiernan Quinlan grins.
(07/27 17:08:41) Jules Lavisham: It's labelled "EMERGENCY GIN" for a reason, Tenny
(07/27 17:08:47) Tiernan Quinlan laughs
(07/27 17:08:55) Jules Lavisham withdraws a vial shaped bottle
(07/27 17:09:10) Minasunda leans left
(07/27 17:09:12) PodHopper leans right
(07/27 17:09:34) Jules Lavisham reaches for a cup and knocks it to the floor
(07/27 17:09:35) PodHopper: Spinning around Seeker?
(07/27 17:09:39) Eternal Seeker leans right
(07/27 17:09:42) PodHopper leans left
(07/27 17:09:54) Tiernan Quinlan: Jules? Y' okay, mate?
(07/27 17:09:55) Jules Lavisham: GODS-
(07/27 17:10:00) Eternal Seeker: bye

(07/27 17:10:02) PodHopper waves goodbye
(07/27 17:10:03) PodHopper: Goodnight :)
(07/27 17:10:09) Ecconia waves goodbye
(07/27 17:10:22) Jules Lavisham takes a deep breath and reaches slowly for two new cups
(07/27 17:10:40) Jules Lavisham passes a cup to Tenny
(07/27 17:11:09) Tiernan Quinlan takes a long drink.
(07/27 17:11:15) Jules Lavisham takes another cup
(07/27 17:11:22) Ecconia: After all this tention, I need a "written ending"...
(07/27 17:11:24) Jules Lavisham passes it to Ecconia
(07/27 17:11:29) Tiernan Quinlan: Heh!
(07/27 17:11:30) Ecconia: Thanks
(07/27 17:11:38) Ecconia yoinks it in one go
(07/27 17:11:45) Jules Lavisham pours a small amount of gin into his cup, then takes a large swig from the bottle

Calum hurries into the Pub.

(07/27 17:11:46) Calum Traveler: i heard what happened from Kelsei.
(07/27 17:11:53) Calum Traveler: freaking heck when it rains it pours.
(07/27 17:12:18) Calum Traveler: is everyone alright?
(07/27 17:12:20) Tiernan Quinlan offers Ecconia a hand. "Greetin's, I don't think we've been formally introduced. I'm Tiernan Quinlan."
(07/27 17:12:20)
(07/27 17:12:33) Jules Lavisham closes his eyes and seems to speak quietly to himself
(07/27 17:12:40) Tiernan Quinlan: Aye, Calum. Folks are just a bit shaken.
(07/27 17:12:46) Calum Traveler: ill say.
(07/27 17:12:58) Calum Traveler: im shaken up just hearing about it,
(07/27 17:13:13) Ecconia shakes it. Greetings, indeed. It was very informative earlier. I am Ecconia.
(07/27 17:13:19) Tiernan Quinlan: If anythin' had gone sideways, I was ready t' keep everyone safe.
(07/27 17:13:34) Calum Traveler nods
(07/27 17:13:41) Jules Lavisham: Not here... not here...
(07/27 17:13:49) Calum Traveler: kelsei just about colapsed once she found me and Carl.
(07/27 17:13:50) Tiernan Quinlan: Ah! Ecconia, are y' new t' th' Cavern? Or are y' a returnin' explorer?
(07/27 17:13:56) Jules Lavisham opens his eyes
(07/27 17:14:01) Tiernan Quinlan frowns at Cal.
(07/27 17:14:11) Tiernan Quinlan: Th' poor thin'.
(07/27 17:14:12) Jules Lavisham: Ah. Cal. Good to see you.
(07/27 17:14:20) Tiernan Quinlan takes another deep drink.
(07/27 17:14:26) Calum Traveler: I got her back to her Relto and she's resting,
(07/27 17:14:31) Calum Traveler: Carl's still chasing after that Mita jerk.
(07/27 17:14:36) Jules Lavisham takes another sip, this time from the glass.
(07/27 17:14:37) Calum Traveler scowls
(07/27 17:14:41) Calum Traveler: hi, Jules.
(07/27 17:14:42) Ecconia: In a sense a returner. I explored 6 to 7 years ago for the first time. And came back this year in april. Took a break again though, but now I am more back than ever :)
(07/27 17:14:43) Tiernan Quinlan: Okay. Still, y' know what I wanna say so...
(07/27 17:14:56) Tiernan Quinlan grins at Ecconia.
(07/27 17:14:59) Tiernan Quinlan: Same.
(07/27 17:15:09) Ecconia: Participating in whatever event possible :P
(07/27 17:15:22) Jules Lavisham: Ah, hello again Semjay. Can I get you anything?
(07/27 17:15:28) Jules Lavisham: And for you Cal?
(07/27 17:15:37) Calum Traveler: ill be getting food on the surface in a bit
(07/27 17:15:47) Calum Traveler: I think Kelsei could use the company once she recovers a bit.
(07/27 17:15:51) Tiernan Quinlan: Aye, well, t'day isn't quite what I'd call typical, we're jus' havin' some troubles w'... well, you saw, mate.
(07/27 17:15:58) Tiernan Quinlan shakes his head
(07/27 17:16:00) Calum Traveler: also, ive been snacking all day anyways.
(07/27 17:16:11) Calum Traveler: let me catch you up on what happened.
(07/27 17:16:15) Ecconia: Btw surface. It is quite late on my side of the big ball. After this shock earlier, I will have to take a big nap of sleep...
(07/27 17:16:20) Tiernan Quinlan pats Cal on the back.
(07/27 17:16:25) Calum Traveler: rest well, ecconia,
(07/27 17:16:25) Ecconia: See you, bye
(07/27 17:16:26) Calum Traveler: :)
(07/27 17:16:28) Ecconia waves goodbye
(07/27 17:16:29) Jules Lavisham: Don't blame you at all, Ecconia. Take care.
(07/27 17:16:34) Tiernan Quinlan waves goodbye

Ecconia Links out.

(07/27 17:16:46) Calum Traveler: so, fountain stuff. Did Kelsei tell you about it?
(07/27 17:16:58) Calum Traveler: or the stuff the guards confiscated from the guy at the overflow station?
(07/27 17:17:01) Tiernan Quinlan: A bit. Not all, I don' think.
(07/27 17:17:15) Tiernan Quinlan downs the rest of his cup.
(07/27 17:17:16) Calum Traveler: right, well, I looked at the stuff we recovered, and I realized it had no reason to be used at the station
(07/27 17:17:20) Tiernan Quinlan: Set me up, Jules.
(07/27 17:17:22) Calum Traveler: none of the hookup parts lined up
(07/27 17:17:34) Calum Traveler: i realized they were pretty close to the fountain hardware though
(07/27 17:17:54) Jules Lavisham pours a healthy helping from the bottle
(07/27 17:18:01) Calum Traveler: so I thought. 'Town hall" that's today right?
(07/27 17:18:16) Calum Traveler: and I asked Carl to wait with me in the Hood, incase someone showed up
(07/27 17:18:34) Calum Traveler: sure enough, same jerk in a Maintainer Suit showed up and started prying open the fountain access pannel
(07/27 17:18:48) Calum Traveler: we confronted him- and he ran off.
(07/27 17:18:51) Calum Traveler: that was... uh...
(07/27 17:18:52) Tiernan Quinlan frowns.
(07/27 17:18:53) Calum Traveler cehcks time...
(07/27 17:19:04) Tiernan Quinlan: Probably th' Tally fella.
(07/27 17:19:06) Calum Traveler: geeze, that was atleast 3 or 5 hours ago
(07/27 17:19:09) Calum Traveler: no, not Tally.
(07/27 17:19:10) Calum Traveler: Mita.
(07/27 17:19:28) Tiernan Quinlan: Mita? He wasn't there today, was he? Jules?
(07/27 17:19:52) Jules Lavisham: Hm? No, not that I could see.
(07/27 17:19:54) Calum Traveler: He turned on a stolen Networked KI- I dont know where he got it from, but he turned it on and fled through the Nexus.
(07/27 17:19:55) Tiernan Quinlan: I'd seen Tally, er, wha' I thought was him anyway, an' he was wearin' th' Maintainer getup.
(07/27 17:19:59) Jules Lavisham: There was three of them, I think
(07/27 17:20:14) Tiernan Quinlan takes another sip.
(07/27 17:20:16) Calum Traveler: the jerk fled to Descent.
(07/27 17:20:27) Jules Lavisham: Funny. When you're on the other end of someone in a Maintainer Suit...
(07/27 17:20:34) Tiernan Quinlan: Descent? Y' chased him tha' far?
(07/27 17:20:36) Calum Traveler: Carl and I followed, and we ended up chasing him through the tunnels outside of the shaft.
(07/27 17:20:48) Jules Lavisham: It's strange how they take on a whole new appearence, almost...
(07/27 17:20:48) Calum Traveler: he shouted a few things at us a bunch of times
(07/27 17:20:50) Tiernan Quinlan frowns vaguely.
(07/27 17:20:55) Calum Traveler: "Yahvo this" type stuff
(07/27 17:21:03) Tiernan Quinlan: In D'ni? Or English?
(07/27 17:21:07) Calum Traveler: english
(07/27 17:21:19) Tiernan Quinlan: Heh. An' these people think they're 'D'ni'?
(07/27 17:21:24) Calum Traveler: I almost caught him at one point but he threw me off with some kind of martial arts skill.
(07/27 17:21:36) Calum Traveler: managed to pry the helmet loose though
(07/27 17:21:42) PodHopper: I'm heading out, back to some more preparing for next week, see you around :)
(07/27 17:21:42) Calum Traveler: man's old, but he's got skill.
(07/27 17:21:48) Calum Traveler: later, pod.
(07/27 17:21:55) Jules Lavisham: See you, Pod.
(07/27 17:21:56) PodHopper waves goodbye
(07/27 17:22:01) Calum Traveler shakes his head tiredly.
(07/27 17:22:08) Tiernan Quinlan: Good travels, Pod!

PodHopper Links out.

(07/27 17:22:18) Jules Lavisham snorts humourlessly
(07/27 17:22:27) Calum Traveler: so yeah. Mita.
(07/27 17:22:30) Calum Traveler: that's a guy alright.
(07/27 17:22:34) Tiernan Quinlan: Cal, we're gonna figure this out.
(07/27 17:22:38) Calum Traveler nods
(07/27 17:22:38) Tiernan Quinlan sips.
(07/27 17:22:40) Calum Traveler: oh, for sure.
(07/27 17:22:48) Calum Traveler: most interesting thing he shouted, though
(07/27 17:23:14) Calum Traveler: "When I take over, you'll wish it was still Marcus!"
(07/27 17:23:28) Calum Traveler: that's one of the guys who crashed the town hall, right?
(07/27 17:23:29) Tiernan Quinlan: Cryptic.
(07/27 17:24:00) Tiernan Quinlan: Aye.
(07/27 17:24:02) Jules Lavisham: Well, that settles it.
(07/27 17:24:04) Calum Traveler: yeah, I think there's some infighting going on there.
(07/27 17:24:10) Jules Lavisham: This lot are a cult.
(07/27 17:24:10) Tiernan Quinlan: Th' one who spoke th' most.
(07/27 17:24:19) Calum Traveler: sounds culty, then,
(07/27 17:24:22) Calum Traveler: yeah,
(07/27 17:24:39) Jules Lavisham: Delusions of a special status, othering anyone unlike them, infighting and factionalism...
(07/27 17:24:45) Tiernan Quinlan: Perhaps this Marcus is th' leader, but he referred to a 'prophet' in the third person.
(07/27 17:24:55) Calum Traveler: ...someone they take orders from on a theoretical level?
(07/27 17:25:05) Calum Traveler: Mita didnt mention any prophet,
(07/27 17:25:08) Tiernan Quinlan: Perhaps one of th' old D'ni prophets? Or someone else?
(07/27 17:25:14) Calum Traveler: who knows.
(07/27 17:25:26) Jules Lavisham: Someone else calling themselves a prophet
(07/27 17:25:34) Tiernan Quinlan: I'll ask Diranda. Perhaps she's come across somethin' in her historical research.
(07/27 17:25:53) Jules Lavisham closes his eyes and looks down again
(07/27 17:25:57) Calum Traveler nods
(07/27 17:25:58) Tiernan Quinlan: There's some kind of story she's writing down, an' it's complex... even I can't follow it.
(07/27 17:26:02) Calum Traveler: you alright, Jules?
(07/27 17:26:17) Tiernan Quinlan: Y'look tired, mate.
(07/27 17:26:24) Tiernan Quinlan sips again.
(07/27 17:26:29) Tiernan Quinlan: Hm...
(07/27 17:26:48) Jules Lavisham: ... it wasn't meant to be like this.
(07/27 17:26:52) Jules Lavisham: Not down here.
(07/27 17:26:53) Tiernan Quinlan: I'm gonna sit down a bit here...
(07/27 17:26:58) Tiernan Quinlan: Aye...
(07/27 17:26:59) Calum Traveler smiles sympatheticly
(07/27 17:27:14) Jules Lavisham: Of all the places in the world
(07/27 17:27:18) Calum Traveler: if there's one thing I've known about D'ni, Jules, is that events down here are often not what they seem
(07/27 17:27:29) Tiernan Quinlan sips.
(07/27 17:27:41) Jules Lavisham: THIS was the one I thought I could rely on to get me away from all this.
(07/27 17:28:02) Calum Traveler sighs
(07/27 17:28:06) Tiernan Quinlan: Ah... I know what y' mean.
(07/27 17:28:09) Jules Lavisham takes another swig
(07/27 17:28:09) Calum Traveler: yeah,
(07/27 17:28:38) Semjay: Really enjoyed the meeting
(07/27 17:28:41) Jules Lavisham: I was doing so well, you know. Thought I'd settled into a nice groove.
(07/27 17:28:47) Calum Traveler smiles to Semjay
(07/27 17:28:50) Semjay: Thanks for all your efforts
(07/27 17:28:56) Tiernan Quinlan looks over at Semjay. "Y' doin' okay?"
(07/27 17:29:00) Calum Traveler: it's appreciated. :)
(07/27 17:29:02) Jules Lavisham nods gratefully at Semjay
(07/27 17:29:06) Semjay: It's an exciting future
(07/27 17:29:14) Tiernan Quinlan: I-I mean, after all tha'...?
(07/27 17:29:36) Tiernan Quinlan smiles.
(07/27 17:29:42) Semjay: Oh, and the telescopes in Kalamee are now working!
(07/27 17:29:49) Calum Traveler: oh that's wonderful news :)
(07/27 17:29:54) Tiernan Quinlan: Telescopes??
(07/27 17:30:00) Calum Traveler: Kelsei's been looking forwards to visiting that place,
(07/27 17:30:02) Jules Lavisham: That IS good news
(07/27 17:30:05) Calum Traveler: can't say I haven't either. ^^;
(07/27 17:30:07) Semjay: I'm off top bed now
(07/27 17:30:12) Calum Traveler: have a good night, semjay.
(07/27 17:30:14) Semjay: Good night
(07/27 17:30:16) Tiernan Quinlan waves goodbye
(07/27 17:30:16) Jules Lavisham: Take care, Semjay

Semjay Links out.

(07/27 17:30:34) Calum Traveler: speaking of Kelsei, I'm going to go check in on her, then get her to the surface for some food
(07/27 17:30:36) Tiernan Quinlan: Oh, telescopes... I mus' see tha'...
(07/27 17:30:39) Calum Traveler: i think she skipped lunch.
(07/27 17:30:40) Jules Lavisham sighs and pours out another glass
(07/27 17:30:43) Tiernan Quinlan nods
(07/27 17:30:44)
(07/27 17:30:46) Calum Traveler: probably didnt help with all the stress.
(07/27 17:30:52) Calum Traveler shakes head
(07/27 17:31:02) Tiernan Quinlan sighs and nods.
(07/27 17:31:03) Calum Traveler: take care, tenny, Jules.
(07/27 17:31:03) Jules Lavisham: Good plan. Give her all my best. Let me know if she needs anything.
(07/27 17:31:07) Calum Traveler: will do
(07/27 17:31:08) Jules Lavisham: Later Cal.
(07/27 17:31:09) Tiernan Quinlan sips.
(07/27 17:31:13) Tiernan Quinlan waves goodbye
(07/27 17:31:18) Calum Traveler: and Jules, message me if you need to talk
(07/27 17:31:22) Calum Traveler: you know how to reach me.

(07/27 17:31:43) Calum Traveler: i expect one of yall will post a chatlog?
(07/27 17:32:00) Calum Traveler: ill need to read up on what they said and see how it lines up with Mita's rambling. if they're splintering...
(07/27 17:32:05) Calum Traveler: maybe someone slipped.
(07/27 17:32:11) Tiernan Quinlan: I'll shoot it over t' Diranda an' she can put it up.
(07/27 17:32:15) Calum Traveler: kk
(07/27 17:32:17) Thumbs up from Calum Traveler
(07/27 17:32:25) Calum Traveler: ill leave it to her then
(07/27 17:32:33) Tiernan Quinlan: I'm not sure I'm in a state t' edit at th' moment.
(07/27 17:32:39) Calum Traveler: understandably so.
(07/27 17:32:40) Tiernan Quinlan chuckles softly.
(07/27 17:32:44) Jules Lavisham: Mm.
(07/27 17:32:57) Calum Traveler reltos out, muttering about 'party crashers'
(07/27 17:33:00) Tiernan Quinlan wobbles a bit.
(07/27 17:33:01)
(07/27 17:33:15) Tiernan Quinlan leans on the bartop.
(07/27 17:33:16) From Calum Traveler in Calum Traveler's Relto: take care all
(07/27 17:33:20) From Calum Traveler in Calum Traveler's Relto: have a good evening.
(07/27 17:33:29) Tiernan Quinlan: Crazy day, eh?
(07/27 17:33:42) Jules Lavisham snorts
(07/27 17:34:11) Tiernan Quinlan: Ah, well. 'Interestin' times an' all tha', y'know?
(07/27 17:34:35) Jules Lavisham: I'm suddenly nostalgic for the times that were a little less interesting, myself.
(07/27 17:34:57) Tiernan Quinlan: Aye, 'tis a curse an' no doubt about it.
(07/27 17:35:20) Tiernan Quinlan mumbles in Irish and chuckles softly.
(07/27 17:35:49) Tiernan Quinlan sips and goes to sit back down.
(07/27 17:35:58) Jules Lavisham: Cults... damn things will be the death of me...
(07/27 17:36:09) Jules Lavisham: Still
(07/27 17:36:13) Tiernan Quinlan: Y've experience w' tha', then?
(07/27 17:36:38) Jules Lavisham looks up sharply
(07/27 17:36:41) Jules Lavisham: I mean, uh
(07/27 17:36:50) Jules Lavisham: Strictly academic, of course
(07/27 17:37:12) Jules Lavisham: Just the nature of my field
(07/27 17:37:12) Tiernan Quinlan: N... it's okay... I've seen thin's in me life tha' are jus' as weird, if not more.
(07/27 17:37:44) Tiernan Quinlan: Perhaps tha's part of th' reason why we're 'the Called'... y'know?
(07/27 17:38:02) Tiernan Quinlan: We have a sensitivity t' the .... unusual.
(07/27 17:38:22) Jules Lavisham: Butted heads with inexplicable weirdness, you mean?
(07/27 17:38:38) Tiernan Quinlan: Me grandmum used t' say I was a 'trouble magnet'...
(07/27 17:38:46) Tiernan Quinlan: Aye, aye.
(07/27 17:39:24) Tiernan Quinlan: But then, if I wasn't, I doubt I would have had some of th' strange an' amazin' experiences I have.
(07/27 17:39:55) Jules Lavisham sighs
(07/27 17:40:06) Jules Lavisham: Been a long time since anyone issued a threat to me.
(07/27 17:40:16) Jules Lavisham: Was starting to forget what it felt like.
(07/27 17:40:18) Tiernan Quinlan: Aye. Wish I could say th' same.
(07/27 17:40:25) Tiernan Quinlan: Heh.
(07/27 17:40:28) Jules Lavisham takes a sip
(07/27 17:40:36) Jules Lavisham: Feels strangely... nostalgic, in a way.
(07/27 17:40:44) Tiernan Quinlan: Aye.
(07/27 17:41:06) Tiernan Quinlan sips.
(07/27 17:41:30) Jules Lavisham reaches for his glass, which slips from his hands
(07/27 17:41:39) Jules Lavisham: ... ok, that'sh two.
(07/27 17:41:51) Jules Lavisham: M'cue to head, I think.
