[CHATLOG Provided by Kelsei A.T.]

(02/05 10:18:17) Chat.log started…
(02/05 10:18:21) Murry: Shorah Jules
(02/05 10:18:29) Kelsei A.T.: how’re you?
(02/05 10:18:29) Jules Lavisham: Hi Kelsei. Thought I might drop in and catch a bit of Fil before the AGM
(02/05 10:18:44) Jules Lavisham: Hey Murry
(02/05 10:18:50) Kelsei A.T.: yes, the AGM, i think ill give it a swing at hosting if nobody else volunteers.
(02/05 10:19:11) Kelsei A.T.: I know Calum’s not going to make it. I caught him sleeping on a cliff this morning, in Naybree.
(02/05 10:19:15) RandomKoolZip: hi jules
(02/05 10:19:26) Jules Lavisham: Hey hey Zip
(02/05 10:19:33) Jules Lavisham: Sleeping on a cliff, you say
(02/05 10:19:36) Jules Lavisham: Sounds precarious
(02/05 10:19:42) Kelsei A.T.: yes, curled up next to the maintainer marker, even
(02/05 10:20:16) Kelsei A.T.: i got him distracted with a book I found, but honestly it was mostly just to get him down off of that cliff and doing something else.
(02/05 10:20:49) Kelsei A.T.: i suspect he’s either still nose deep in it, or fallen asleep again, going by how he’s somehow set his KI to redirect work alerts at mine instead.
(02/05 10:20:50) Jules Lavisham: Good shout. That lad concerns me a bit at times.
(02/05 10:21:16) Jules Lavisham: Totally sound head on his shoulders, but he does like putting it to use in worrying endeavours
(02/05 10:21:25) Kelsei A.T.: yes, he’s got something heavy on his mind these days, I think.
(02/05 10:21:45) Jules Lavisham: Mm?
(02/05 10:21:54) Kelsei A.T.: im not sure if its surface related or cavern related,
(02/05 10:22:03) Kelsei A.T.: he hasn’t talked to me much about it.
(02/05 10:22:11) Kelsei A.T.: though the other day he pranked me while wearing a maintainer suit!
(02/05 10:22:18) Kelsei A.T.: pretended to be a ghost.
(02/05 10:22:20) Kelsei A.T.: good grief.
(02/05 10:22:26) Kelsei A.T.: i splashed him with my coffee.
(02/05 10:22:38) Jules Lavisham: Hah! Sounds like japes.
(02/05 10:22:54) Kelsei A.T.: he certainly found it amusing up until I had him buy me the most expensive coffee i could find online.
(02/05 10:23:00) Jules Lavisham: Oh yes, this would be the work you’re all doing on the Wall, right?
(02/05 10:23:09) Kelsei A.T.: Him and Hazado mostly,
(02/05 10:23:19) Kelsei A.T.: ive been dealing with more translation work for Patrick,
(02/05 10:23:32) Kelsei A.T.: and helping sort through DRC archival documents as well,
(02/05 10:23:49) Kelsei A.T.: im sure everyone who goes through it has their own idea of sorting order, but over time that just makes things jumbled.
(02/05 10:24:18) Kelsei A.T.: for example: the initial survey report for Eder Naybree was nowhere near the actual book!
(02/05 10:25:01) Jules Lavisham: …
(02/05 10:25:11) Jules Lavisham: Yeah, that’s poor archiving right there.
(02/05 10:25:12) Kelsei A.T.: no idea if that was the DRC’s doing, or someone who thought the survey reports should be bundled together.
(02/05 10:25:38) Kelsei A.T. shrugs
(02/05 10:25:44) Jules Lavisham: The latter would at least be some kind of logical system
(02/05 10:26:04) Jules Lavisham: Although surely you would be requiring the survey reports in tandem with the age in question
(02/05 10:26:09) Kelsei A.T.: indeed.
(02/05 10:26:28) Kelsei A.T.: probably didnt check what the reports were for and just shuffled them together,
(02/05 10:26:38) Kelsei A.T. shrugs
(02/05 10:26:38)
(02/05 10:26:49) Kelsei A.T.: regardless, it’s an ongoing process.
(02/05 10:26:53) Jules Lavisham: Eder Naybree. Don’t think I’m familiar with that one.
(02/05 10:27:17) Kelsei A.T.: It’s a Garden Age, obviously 😛
(02/05 10:27:22) Jules Lavisham: Garden age that Cal’s unearthed I presume?
(02/05 10:27:27) Kelsei A.T.: my work, actually,
(02/05 10:27:31) Jules Lavisham: Oh!
(02/05 10:27:37) Kelsei A.T.: i found it while sorting through the archival stuff,
(02/05 10:27:51) Jules Lavisham: Excellent! What’s the condition?
(02/05 10:27:54) Kelsei A.T.: i realized the field report had some descriptions that matched an Age I’d seen in a journal I’d translated,
(02/05 10:28:04) Kelsei A.T.: i got curious…
(02/05 10:28:06) Kelsei A.T. giggles
(02/05 10:28:22) Kelsei A.T.: condition is overgrown,
(02/05 10:28:30) Kelsei A.T.: the back half of the garden is just…
(02/05 10:28:41) Kelsei A.T.: you know how there’s vines on the surface that just consume everything?
(02/05 10:29:01) Kelsei A.T.: think something like that, except it’s tree branches and tree roots,
(02/05 10:29:38) Jules Lavisham: Aaah. A propert “nature has returned” case, from the sound of it.
(02/05 10:29:40) Kelsei A.T.: I think it was originally some sort of duality theme- Naybree means ‘two roots’ or something like that.
(02/05 10:29:55) Kelsei A.T.: potentially, yes!
(02/05 10:30:17) Kelsei A.T.: Though I have to wonder how much it was like that to begin with,
(02/05 10:30:20) Jules Lavisham: Hmm. Maybe a symbiotic kind of deal that became unbalanced over time
(02/05 10:30:28) Kelsei A.T.: certainly some of the trees have overgrown their bounds.
(02/05 10:30:32) Jules Lavisham: Like Narayan?
(02/05 10:30:40) Kelsei A.T.: they’ve begun munching at lamp posts.
(02/05 10:30:53) Kelsei A.T.: Narayan… not sure.
(02/05 10:31:05) Kelsei A.T.: possibly it’s an imbalance of some kind,
(02/05 10:31:25) Kelsei A.T.: or it could have just been a long spread of time being unmaintained.
(02/05 10:31:40) Kelsei A.T.: Kemo certainly isn’t wildly overgrown, for example,
(02/05 10:31:59) Jules Lavisham: Munching lamp posts? Ooof. Going to need some industrial bushwhacking tools for that.
(02/05 10:32:00) Kelsei A.T.: but Kadish, in comparison…
(02/05 10:32:17) Kelsei A.T.: yes, Calum’s been working at cutting some of that back, trying different tools and such,
(02/05 10:32:27) Kelsei A.T.: atleast, when he’s not building replacement bridges or rope ladders.
(02/05 10:32:40) Kelsei A.T.: industrious, when he gets in a mood.
(02/05 10:33:13) Kelsei A.T.: Fortunately, everything else in the age seems solid and in good condition.
(02/05 10:33:34) Kelsei A.T.: it’s got one marvelous night sky!
(02/05 10:33:57) Jules Lavisham: Has he tried a machete? If not, I’ve got one he’s free to borrow.
(02/05 10:34:11) Kelsei A.T.: i believe he’s even tried an electrical short saw
(02/05 10:34:29) Kelsei A.T.: i did smell burnt wood one night,
(02/05 10:35:00) Kelsei A.T.: i think he’s only focusing on clearing out the main walking path, though,
(02/05 10:35:11) Kelsei A.T.: there’s just too much grown everywhere else to take care of it,
(02/05 10:36:22) Jules Lavisham: Makes sense
(02/05 10:36:51) Kelsei A.T.: it’s certainly a very interesting garden age, follows a lot of the familiar design elements in Kemo, Delin, and Tsogal,
(02/05 10:37:28) Kelsei A.T.: hard to see a lot of it under the overgrowth, though,
(02/05 10:38:05) Jules Lavisham: Wouldn’t surprise me if it was written around the same time. If I remember there was something of an abundance of those ages being made available to the D’ni population
(02/05 10:38:18) Kelsei A.T.: yep,
(02/05 10:39:00) Jules Lavisham: I can imagine writers cranking those out and just popping in the same sort of elements wholesale
(02/05 10:39:23) Kelsei A.T.: i’d imagine things like the statue and the gazeebos were pre-fabricated structures like the pods,
(02/05 10:39:40) Kelsei A.T.: written in? manufactured on site? who knows.
(02/05 10:39:44) Kelsei A.T.: not my department 😛
(02/05 10:40:32) Jules Lavisham: Heh
(02/05 10:41:02) Kelsei A.T.: there’s definite work there that wasnt original to the age, though
(02/05 10:41:07) Kelsei A.T.: Post Fall work, for sure.
(02/05 10:41:23) Kelsei A.T.: a survivor was there, at one point.
(02/05 10:41:26) Jules Lavisham: Oh really?
(02/05 10:41:56) Kelsei A.T.: there’s some carved structures that evoke similar depictions we found in the Cathedral.
(02/05 10:42:07) Kelsei A.T.: it’s part of what drew my attention to it from the survey document.
(02/05 10:43:08) Jules Lavisham: Sounds like a definite connection
(02/05 10:43:18) Kelsei A.T.: among other things, yes.
(02/05 10:43:31) Kelsei A.T.: I’m quite positive it’s the age our little Athsheba went to.
(02/05 10:44:31) Kelsei A.T.: poor girl.
(02/05 10:44:47) Kelsei A.T.: the Fall was a trying time, and I have no idea how old she was when it happened.
(02/05 10:44:59) Kelsei A.T.: she was either pre-Guild learning, or was being hometaught,
(02/05 10:45:31) Kelsei A.T. frowns, sad over that thought…
(02/05 10:45:58) Kelsei A.T.: there’s no telling how long she lived there, either.
(02/05 10:46:25) Jules Lavisham: Any indication she was living there with others?
(02/05 10:46:29) Kelsei A.T.: no,
(02/05 10:46:35) Kelsei A.T.: she was alone as far as we can tell,
(02/05 10:47:21) Jules Lavisham: Surviving a trauma event like that and dealing with the emotional fallout on her own…
(02/05 10:47:35) Jules Lavisham: Christ.
(02/05 10:47:43) Kelsei A.T.: her handwriting certainly never improved in the journals she left in the Cathedral for others to find.
(02/05 10:48:11) Kelsei A.T.: yes, it’s a troubling thought.
(02/05 10:48:24) Kelsei A.T.: i can only hope she did find civilization eventually, though.
(02/05 10:48:29) Kelsei A.T.: whether it was on Releeshan or another age…
(02/05 10:49:20) Kelsei A.T. sniffs a bit
(02/05 10:49:27) Whiteginger: hi everyone
(02/05 10:49:31) Kelsei A.T.: later seeker, mina,
(02/05 10:49:31) Minasunda (I’m on the surface, be back in a minute):
(02/05 10:49:34) Kelsei A.T.: shorah, ginger,
(02/05 10:49:35) Jules Lavisham: Later all
(02/05 10:49:47) Jules Lavisham: Here’s hoping
(02/05 10:49:52) RandomKoolZip: shorah
(02/05 10:49:56) Whiteginger: whats happening?
(02/05 10:50:01) Kelsei A.T.: fil live just ended
(02/05 10:50:09) Kelsei A.T.: me and jules have been talking work and such.
(02/05 10:50:13) Kelsei A.T.: AGM is in….
(02/05 10:50:22) Kelsei A.T.: lesse, its almost 11 now, so…
(02/05 10:50:30) Jules Lavisham: Two hours or so?
(02/05 10:50:33) Kelsei A.T.: 2 hours
(02/05 10:50:50) Kelsei A.T. finishes her drink
(02/05 10:50:50)
(02/05 10:51:09) Kelsei A.T. dumps it in the sink
(02/05 10:51:23) RandomKoolZip: kelsi I enjoyed hearing you and jules talk shop
(02/05 10:51:29) Kelsei A.T.: 🙂
(02/05 10:51:34) RandomKoolZip: even though it was mostly over my head.
(02/05 10:51:36) Jules Lavisham: Ah, must remember to drop a couple of bottles of crusted Port down in there
(02/05 10:51:46) Kelsei A.T.: it can be quite fun to listen into such things.
(02/05 10:51:53) RandomKoolZip: it was!
(02/05 10:51:54) Jules Lavisham: Not that anyone else will drink it but me, mind…
(02/05 10:52:03) Kelsei A.T.: oh, Jules, I have a thread on the forums about it, if you need a catch up.
(02/05 10:52:33) Jules Lavisham: Yeah, nice catchup Kels
(02/05 10:52:35) Jules Lavisham: Oh excellent
(02/05 10:52:39) Jules Lavisham: I’ll have a gander
(02/05 10:53:09) Jules Lavisham: Let me know when things get suitably progressed and I’ll make sure Ty gives it a couple of words in a future audio update
(02/05 10:53:18) Kelsei A.T. nods her head
(02/05 10:53:22) Kelsei A.T.: will do,
(02/05 10:53:32) Jules Lavisham: Right, you going to be ok for hosting the AGM?
(02/05 10:53:52) Kelsei A.T.: well, if nobody else volunteers
(02/05 10:53:55) Kelsei A.T.: i think i should be fine
(02/05 10:54:09) Jules Lavisham: Excellent. I think you will be too
(02/05 10:54:12) Jules Lavisham grins
(02/05 10:54:15) Kelsei A.T. smiles
(02/05 10:54:20) Kelsei A.T.: thanks for the encouragement
(02/05 10:54:36) Jules Lavisham: Always. Catch you in a few!
(02/05 10:54:39) Kelsei A.T.: later
(02/05 10:54:40) Kelsei A.T. waves goodbye
(02/05 10:54:44) Jules Lavisham waves goodbye
(02/05 10:55:43) …Chat.log stopped.
