July Town Hall (072722)

Post by Diranda »

Town Hall, Great Tree Hood, July 27, 2022

Tiernan Links in, Kelsei and Jules are chatting.

(07/27 16:03:36) Kelsei A.T. mumbles slightly, examing an access hatch on the fountain...
(07/27 16:03:40) Kelsei A.T.: 'ello, Jules...
(07/27 16:03:50) Jules Lavisham: Hi Kels.
(07/27 16:03:52) Kelsei A.T.: shorah, Tenny.
(07/27 16:03:54) Jules Lavisham: Everything alright?
(07/27 16:04:02) Kelsei A.T. chuckles
(07/27 16:04:06) Jules Lavisham: Shorah, Tenny
(07/27 16:04:08) Kelsei A.T.: calum was right about his suspicions
(07/27 16:04:15) Kelsei A.T. stands up after closing the hatch
(07/27 16:04:28) Kelsei A.T.: access pannel was roughed up and pulled open, but looks like nothing was tampered with
(07/27 16:04:42) Kelsei A.T.: if i had to bet, Calum and Carl caught the perpretrator in the act and chased them off
(07/27 16:04:52) Kelsei A.T.: ill have to message them later,
(07/27 16:04:55) Tiernan Quinlan: Hullo all.
(07/27 16:05:01) Jules Lavisham: Sounds like a good idea.
(07/27 16:05:07) Jules Lavisham: They joining us tonight?
(07/27 16:05:15) Kelsei A.T.: Cal posted on the forums,
(07/27 16:04:54) Kelsei A.T.: ill have to message them later,
(07/27 16:05:17) Kelsei A.T.: Cal posted on the forums,
(07/27 16:05:19) Jules Lavisham: Shorah, Semjay
(07/27 16:05:21) Kelsei A.T.: said he was going to chase a lead.
(07/27 16:05:27) Tiernan Quinlan: A lead?
(07/27 16:05:29) Semjay: Shorah
(07/27 16:05:33) Kelsei A.T.: well, a "hunch" rather
(07/27 16:05:33) Tiernan Quinlan: Oh good.
(07/27 16:05:37) Tiernan Quinlan: Ah well.
(07/27 16:05:39) Kelsei A.T.: privately he told me what it was
(07/27 16:05:43) Tiernan Quinlan sighs.
(07/27 16:05:43) Kelsei A.T. motions at the fountain hatch.
(07/27 16:05:49) Tiernan Quinlan: Oh...
(07/27 16:05:54) Tiernan Quinlan shakes his head
(07/27 16:05:57) Kelsei A.T.: the sabboteur who got ran off at the station got his bag confiscated by a guard...
(07/27 16:06:03) Kelsei A.T.: so...
(07/27 16:06:06) Kelsei A.T. smiles hopefully
(07/27 16:06:11) Tiernan Quinlan: Aye.
(07/27 16:06:14) Kelsei A.T.: i'd wager if they dont make an appearance this is why.
(07/27 16:06:25) Jules Lavisham: Tampering with the fountains...
(07/27 16:06:42) Kelsei A.T.: yes,
(07/27 16:06:51) Jules Lavisham: It really does seem like everything and anything is a target.
(07/27 16:06:56) Kelsei A.T.: fortunately, nothing happened here beyond the hatch getting pulled open.
(07/27 16:07:02) Kelsei A.T.: Calum was right to be paranoid about it.
(07/27 16:07:16) Kelsei A.T. shakes her head, nursing a slight headache
(07/27 16:07:20) Kelsei A.T.: as if we needed this...
(07/27 16:07:27) Jules Lavisham: I mean, given the amount of people going for a splash in these things in their shoes, if they DID want to mess with the water they needn't bother
(07/27 16:07:34) Tiernan Quinlan: Kelsei? Do y' need a painkiller?
(07/27 16:07:44) Kelsei A.T.: no, its not a serious one
(07/27 16:07:50) Kelsei A.T.: just one of those stress headaches
(07/27 16:08:01) Tiernan Quinlan: Okay. I have me bag if anyone needs one.
(07/27 16:08:03) Kelsei A.T.: ive got a lot on my plate these days,
(07/27 16:08:05) Jules Lavisham: Ugh. Those are monstrous.
(07/27 16:08:08) Kelsei A.T. smiles in thanks
(07/27 16:08:21) Thumbs up from Tiernan Quinlan
(07/27 16:08:26) Kelsei A.T.: considering fil live ended early...
(07/27 16:08:27) Jules Lavisham: If you do need to head out at any point, don't let us keep you here.
(07/27 16:08:29) Kelsei A.T.: hrm
(07/27 16:08:34) Kelsei A.T.: thanks.
(07/27 16:08:47) Aurelias: shorah everyone :))
(07/27 16:08:52) Kelsei A.T.: shorah, aur,
(07/27 16:09:00) Kelsei A.T. forces on a smile, past the headache
(07/27 16:09:01) Jules Lavisham: Shorah Aurelias! Glad you could join us.
(07/27 16:09:01) Tiernan Quinlan waves hello
(07/27 16:09:19) Aurelias: I'll be back in a minute or two...
(07/27 16:09:22) Kelsei A.T.: ok :)
(07/27 16:09:37) Jules Lavisham: I mean that, Kels.
(07/27 16:09:49) Kelsei A.T.: i understand the concern, jules,
(07/27 16:10:01) Kelsei A.T.: but there's not much i can do when most of my woes are surface side.
(07/27 16:10:09) Kelsei A.T.: just got too much to do the next few weeks,
(07/27 16:10:19) Kelsei A.T.: atleast we've got Naybree's release window settled down.
(07/27 16:10:20) Tiernan Quinlan: Ah, with th' convention, yes?
(07/27 16:10:29) Kelsei A.T.: that, and work,
(07/27 16:10:32) Kelsei A.T.: and family.
(07/27 16:10:38) Kelsei A.T.: and... oh. so many things.
(07/27 16:10:42) Kelsei A.T. shakes her heade
(07/27 16:10:52) Kelsei A.T.: shorah, tiki.
(07/27 16:10:54) Jules Lavisham: Shorah Tiki
(07/27 16:11:05) Kelsei A.T.: i think ill go confirm the podium is working...
(07/27 16:11:17) Tiernan Quinlan waves hello
(07/27 16:11:19) Jules Lavisham: We'll be up in a mo Kels
(07/27 16:11:30) TikiBear waves hello
(07/27 16:11:31) Jules Lavisham flicks through his notes
(07/27 16:11:33) Tiernan Quinlan sighs tiredly.
(07/27 16:11:37) Kelsei A.T. kneels and inspects the podium exterior... and pokes around the inside a bit...
(07/27 16:11:55) Tiernan Quinlan: Didn't expect t' have so much work when I came back here. Heh!
(07/27 16:12:00) Ecconia: Shorah
(07/27 16:12:04) Jules Lavisham: Shorah all!
(07/27 16:12:05) Tiernan Quinlan waves hello
(07/27 16:12:09) NoMore: shorah
(07/27 16:12:25) Jules Lavisham: It does creep up on you, Doc.
(07/27 16:12:25) Kelsei A.T.: shorah,
(07/27 16:12:30) Tiernan Quinlan: How are all of y' doin' in general, folks?
(07/27 16:12:45) TikiBear: Busy.
(07/27 16:12:54) Kelsei A.T. mumbles tiredly about seeing Calum's handiwork in anti-tampering seals...
(07/27 16:12:55) NoMore: WHAT doesnt creep up?
(07/27 16:12:56) Tiernan Quinlan: Aye.
(07/27 16:12:57) Jules Lavisham: Anyone who says academic staff have nothing but downtime between semesters...
(07/27 16:13:00) Kelsei A.T. closes up the podium
(07/27 16:13:02) NoMore flinches
(07/27 16:13:10) Jules Lavisham: Still, Stonehenge was a blast.
(07/27 16:13:11) Kelsei A.T.: everythings good, Jules, Tenny.
(07/27 16:13:15) Thumbs up from Kelsei A.T.
(07/27 16:13:17) Tiernan Quinlan chuckles at Jules' remarks.
(07/27 16:13:19) Jules Lavisham: Excellent
(07/27 16:13:28) Kelsei A.T.: you still need to fill me in on that stonehenge trip, jules,
(07/27 16:13:30) Jules Lavisham: Right, let's head up to the auditorium
(07/27 16:13:35) Tiernan Quinlan: Aye, an' tha's why I don't teach, friend.
(07/27 16:13:37) Jules Lavisham: Yes, absolutely Kels
(07/27 16:13:43) Aurelias: Should we be concerned that two of "D'ni's Most Wanted" are in Jalak? Even the baddies sometimes need to have fun and games
(07/27 16:13:45) Tiernan Quinlan laughs
(07/27 16:13:49) Semjay: Stonehenge is best in November
(07/27 16:13:59) Kelsei A.T.: jalak, hm?
(07/27 16:14:00) Semjay: When it's wet and foggy
(07/27 16:14:02) TikiBear: The Guide Stones were recently attacked in the US.
(07/27 16:14:06) Tiernan Quinlan: Are they, Aurelias?
(07/27 16:14:15) Kelsei A.T.: oh, yes, I see one of them in Jalak,
(07/27 16:14:17) Jules Lavisham: That is a concern, Aurelias.
(07/27 16:14:19) Kelsei A.T.: my ki is acting up, however
(07/27 16:14:22) Tiernan Quinlan: Hmm.
(07/27 16:14:35) Kelsei A.T.: ive got folks online who arent, and those who are not showing
(07/27 16:14:43) Kelsei A.T. smacks the thing lightly
(07/27 16:14:45) Tiernan Quinlan: Aye, as has mine. I should ask Diranda if she's doin' experiments on th' thin' again.
(07/27 16:14:59) Tiernan Quinlan: She fell in th' water at one point.
(07/27 16:15:07) Tiernan Quinlan shakes his head and sighs.
(07/27 16:15:12) Jules Lavisham: Who, Diranda or the KI?
(07/27 16:15:14) Kelsei A.T.: DS5's showing as in his relto right now, and I know he was last showing up in in the pub before he had to deal with something.
(07/27 16:15:22) Tiernan Quinlan: Oh Dira, to be sure, Jules.
(07/27 16:15:25) Kelsei A.T. grouches about the KI...
(07/27 16:15:43) TikiBear ponders poised presenters
(07/27 16:15:52) Tiernan Quinlan: Th' girl is obsessed with tha' Zero.
(07/27 16:15:54) Jules Lavisham continues to flick through his notes
(07/27 16:16:11) NoMore: lol Dirandaaaa... answer: 'blub llub'...
(07/27 16:16:18) Kelsei A.T.: as for the most wanted, I suspect they're either licking their wounds after someone gave them a chase, or preparing something, or possibly just goofing off.
(07/27 16:16:19) Tiernan Quinlan laughs
(07/27 16:16:26) Jules Lavisham: Good gods, my handwriting is getting worse by the day
(07/27 16:16:28) Kelsei A.T.: to be fair i'd rather they just stay in jalak
(07/27 16:16:42) Aurelias: I mean, who doesn't enjoy pushing around translucent cubes?
(07/27 16:16:48) Kelsei A.T.: Carl, for one
(07/27 16:16:54) Kelsei A.T.: he loves that age
(07/27 16:17:06) Tiernan Quinlan waves hello
(07/27 16:17:13) Kelsei A.T.: i managed to catch the tail end of one of his rambles with Calum when he found out about an upcoming contribution to Chiso
(07/27 16:17:36) Kelsei A.T.: i gather its something of a sweet spot
(07/27 16:17:36) TikiBear checks bag of tomatos
(07/27 16:17:55) Kelsei A.T.: speaking of Carl I'm not seeing him or Calum, so they're very likely still involved in chasing down Calum's "hunch"
(07/27 16:17:55) Tiernan Quinlan: Well, it seems everyone has their favorite places t' work. Heh.
(07/27 16:18:03) Jules Lavisham: Making a spag bol, are we Tiki?
(07/27 16:18:18) Kelsei A.T.: but that also could just be my KI :/
(07/27 16:18:31) Tiernan Quinlan: Aye.
(07/27 16:18:39) TikiBear: Just using the ol' noodle
(07/27 16:19:06) Jules Lavisham: Right, coming up to twenty past...
(07/27 16:19:07) Kelsei A.T. hums tiredly...
(07/27 16:19:18) Jules Lavisham: We'll give people a couple of minutes after that then crack on
(07/27 16:19:25) Tiernan Quinlan: Aye, m' KI seems t' be in a mood t'day.
(07/27 16:19:32) Kelsei A.T.: fair, but let's make it a quick one, eh, Jules? I could use the rest.
(07/27 16:19:38) Kelsei A.T. massages at forehead.
(07/27 16:19:45) Tiernan Quinlan eyes Kelsei.
(07/27 16:19:51) Kelsei A.T. smiles at Tenny
(07/27 16:19:53) Jules Lavisham: I shall try my best to zip through, Kels
(07/27 16:19:56) Kelsei A.T.: it's fine. just a stress headache.
(07/27 16:20:07) Tiernan Quinlan: Y' sure y' not overworkin', coleen?
(07/27 16:20:18) Jules Lavisham: Unbelievable as it may seem, I am capable of brevity on occasion
(07/27 16:20:24) Kelsei A.T.: i'm putting in for vacation time at work soon,
(07/27 16:20:31) Jules Lavisham winks at Kelsei
(07/27 16:20:33) Tiernan Quinlan chuckles at Jules.
(07/27 16:21:16) Kelsei A.T. yawns
(07/27 16:21:30) Aurelias: Uh, oh... Tally is on the move!
(07/27 16:21:37) Kelsei A.T. checks her KI
(07/27 16:21:43) Kelsei A.T.: .... not seeing him. damn it
(07/27 16:22:00) NoMore broadens the spacing on the 'E'
(07/27 16:22:03) Aurelias: In the Watcher's Pub now... different Great Tree :)
(07/27 16:22:20) Kelsei A.T. grumbles...
(07/27 16:22:50) Kelsei A.T.: ill take a look at it after the town hall,
(07/27 16:22:56) Kelsei A.T.: keep an eye on where he's going, please?
(07/27 16:23:05) Aurelias: Er'cana now
(07/27 16:23:11) Kelsei A.T.: er'cana??
(07/27 16:23:14) Jules Lavisham gives his notes a final checking over and puts them away
(07/27 16:23:17) Kelsei A.T. frowns
(07/27 16:23:28) Aurelias: Yeah, probably just a little light industrial sabotage
(07/27 16:23:33) Kelsei A.T. sighs
(07/27 16:23:42) Kelsei A.T.: we'll keep an eye out for any signs of lake contamination
(07/27 16:23:43) Jules Lavisham: Right, I think that's enough wriggle room, I'm sure any latecomers will be able to catch up reasonably quicksharpish
(07/27 16:23:48) Kelsei A.T. nods
(07/27 16:23:57) Jules Lavisham: Shorah everyone, and welcome to the second of our explorer Town Halls.
(07/27 16:24:04) Aurelias claps her hands
(07/27 16:24:16) TikiBear claps his hands
(07/27 16:24:18) Ecconia claps his hands
(07/27 16:24:26) Jules Lavisham: If this is your first one of these youve been to, these little meetings are intended to give the community a chance to catch up on the latest goings-on in the cavern,
(07/27 16:24:46) Jules Lavisham: let you know how things are going with assorted restoration projects currently in progress,
(07/27 16:24:54) Jules Lavisham: and generally give you an idea about what's on the horizon
(07/27 16:25:11) Jules Lavisham: along with allowing those who are present a say in the potential directions that the explorer restoration can take.
(07/27 16:25:29) Jules Lavisham: If you are interested in seeing what was discussed and decided upon in the last Town Hall,
(07/27 16:25:46) Jules Lavisham: a log has been made available and can be accessed on the Beneath forums under the Transcripts sub-forum.
(07/27 16:26:07) Jules Lavisham: I imagine as these go on we'll end up making a dedicated topic with links to each one for quick reference.
(07/27 16:26:18) Jules Lavisham: We're all about the ease-of-use around these parts, after all.
(07/27 16:26:29) Jules Lavisham: Before we start, the rules from last time apply.
(07/27 16:26:55) Jules Lavisham: No pressing the blue button, comments not from myself or Kelsei kept to a minimum unless called upon please,
(07/27 16:27:07) Kelsei A.T.: cal's posted a full set of rules onto his blog,
(07/27 16:27:15) Jules Lavisham: any pressing issues should be PM'd to Kelsei and if it's something up for discussion, we'll table it here.
(07/27 16:27:20) Kelsei A.T.: we're hoping to get a proper website up eventually,
(07/27 16:27:31) Jules Lavisham: Yes, very much on the agenda.
(07/27 16:27:32) Kelsei A.T. smiles warily,
(07/27 16:27:37) Tiernan Quinlan: Aye.
(07/27 16:27:51) Jules Lavisham: Right then, first up - current happenings,
(07/27 16:28:00) ALotOf: php is cool
(07/27 16:28:10) Jules Lavisham: and a quick update on the five individuals whose names and KI numbers we provided at the last meeting.
(07/27 16:28:32) Jules Lavisham: We put a request out last time for explorers to send us visual identification of those five if they were seen in the Cavern,
(07/27 16:28:48) Jules Lavisham: and I want to express our personal thanks for those who have provided us with KI shots in the last month.
(07/27 16:29:05) Jules Lavisham: It's all useful intel for us to build a profile on exactly who these people are and what their game is.
(07/27 16:29:16) Kelsei A.T.: (confusing as it is)
(07/27 16:29:24) Jules Lavisham: Unfortunately, sabotage incidents have continued in the last month,
(07/27 16:29:48) Jules Lavisham: incuding damage inflicted to hood speaker podiums and public areas laced with an unknown, very noxious smelling chemical.
(07/27 16:30:06) Jules Lavisham: We've also had someone in a Maintainer suit trying to have a run at the Overflow station again,
(07/27 16:30:26) Jules Lavisham: which was thankfully nipped in the bud by the added security that was voted on at last month's Town Hall.
(07/27 16:30:33) Kelsei A.T. nods her head
(07/27 16:30:37) Kelsei A.T.: good call, that.
(07/27 16:30:47) Jules Lavisham: No damage to the Station was recorded, and a bag of tools was confiscated following the altercation.
(07/27 16:30:54) ALotOf: oh that sounds serious...
(07/27 16:31:03) Jules Lavisham: Yes, evidently taking a prudent approach to the Overflow Station was the right call to make.
(07/27 16:31:32) Jules Lavisham: Members of the restoration were sent invitations to a hood owned by one Ami Renne Glessad,
(07/27 16:31:46) Jules Lavisham: most likely obtaining them by searching our names out on the forums.
(07/27 16:31:55) Kelsei A.T.: most of us do have our KI#s listed there
(07/27 16:32:00) Jules Lavisham: Upon exploring the Hood, we came across a message on the Hood imager.
(07/27 16:32:05) Jules Lavisham: Just three words:
(07/27 16:32:11) Jules Lavisham: "Speak to Harlan."
(07/27 16:32:16) NoMore: how make a serious noxious substance hit our brains...?
(07/27 16:32:17) ALotOf: I think you barin has alredy, NoMore...
(07/27 16:32:28) NoMore: *Hmpf*
(07/27 16:32:41) Jules Lavisham: What's interesting is that one of our five troublemakers, Mita Staser, was recorded as visiting the Hood not long after Ami was recorded as arriving,
(07/27 16:33:06) Jules Lavisham: and signs of a struggle were discovered, including bookroom doors that were forced open.
(07/27 16:33:14) Kelsei A.T. looks concerned there...
(07/27 16:33:29) Jules Lavisham: There were also indications that something took place in the New Messenger's Pub afterwards, judging by the visitor logs.
(07/27 16:33:58) Jules Lavisham: In particular, a prybar that was kept behind the bar in the backroom was recorded as missing.
(07/27 16:34:17) Jules Lavisham: This was subsequently returned to the Pub and a note from Ami was left on one of the imagers,
(07/27 16:34:27) Jules Lavisham: implying that she took it, likely in self defence.
(07/27 16:34:51) Tiernan Quinlan frowns slightly, in concern.
(07/27 16:34:57) Jules Lavisham: Now, Calum reviewed one of his older journals and discovered an entry referencing one Harlan Mason,
(07/27 16:35:10) Jules Lavisham: who may be the Harlan that Ami is directing us towards.
(07/27 16:35:25) Tiernan Quinlan nods his head
(07/27 16:35:26) Jules Lavisham: The current relationship to that saboteurs and whoever this Harlan Mason is
(07/27 16:35:33) Jules Lavisham: - if it is indeed him -
(07/27 16:35:43) Jules Lavisham: remains to be seen at this point.
(07/27 16:35:59) Jules Lavisham: But it does represent something of a lead, one we intend to be following up as a matter of priority.
(07/27 16:36:09) Jules Lavisham: As soon as more is known, we'll let you know.
(07/27 16:36:12) ALotOf: so *Harlan Mason*...interesting----
(07/27 16:36:22) Jules Lavisham: Indeed.
(07/27 16:36:28) Jules Lavisham: In news of a slightly more positive nature,
(07/27 16:36:47) Jules Lavisham: Benavud continues his explorations of the Cavern and the Journey ages
(07/27 16:36:56) Jules Lavisham: assisted in part by members of the explorer community.
(07/27 16:37:17) Tiernan Quinlan smiles.
(07/27 16:37:22) Jules Lavisham: I'd like to offer a shoutout in particular to explorers Mouski, Isa, Cpt Jericho, NoMore, SleeperJan,
(07/27 16:37:28) Thumbs up from Tiernan Quinlan
(07/27 16:37:36) Jules Lavisham: and everyone else who have been generally helping him get his bearings.
(07/27 16:37:59) Jules Lavisham: A few of you have fed back to us, it's our understanding that he's had some manner of reaction to the journey door?
(07/27 16:38:12) Kelsei A.T. grimaces
(07/27 16:38:13) NoMore: how dangerous IS Harlam Mason, speaking of it...?
(07/27 16:38:22) Isa =^.^=: Very negative response to the door
(07/27 16:38:27) Kelsei A.T.: very, very negative,
(07/27 16:38:32) Tiernan Quinlan: Aye.
(07/27 16:38:42) Jules Lavisham: I see. Something of a concern.
(07/27 16:39:01) Kelsei A.T.: no idea about Harlan, Nomore,
(07/27 16:39:06) Kelsei A.T.: we havent met the guy yet.
(07/27 16:39:06) Jules Lavisham: That aside, it's been good to hear Ben speak very highly of those explorers he's encountered to date,
(07/27 16:39:07) ALotOf: well for me you'd have to say 'more danferous than a DDS attack or less'
(07/27 16:39:15) Tiernan Quinlan: Aye, we don't know, as far as I am aware, Nomore.
(07/27 16:39:20) Jules Lavisham: so many thanks to those who have been accompanying him on his travels.
(07/27 16:39:33) Jules Lavisham: His identity still remains an enigma, both to himself and to us,
(07/27 16:39:50) Jules Lavisham: but we feel like the steps we are taking are bringing us all closer to the answers we're after.
(07/27 16:40:03) Jules Lavisham: So, keep at it, you lot. You're doing good.
(07/27 16:40:28) Jules Lavisham: Right, I think that's the saliant points covered.
(07/27 16:40:36) Jules Lavisham: Let's talk what's coming up.
(07/27 16:40:37) Thumbs up from Tiernan Quinlan
(07/27 16:40:40) Kelsei A.T.: :)
(07/27 16:41:00) Jules Lavisham: It was decided at the last Town Hall that Eder Naybree was going to be the focus of our restoration efforts,
(07/27 16:41:11) Jules Lavisham: followed by Highgarden,
(07/27 16:41:20) Jules Lavisham: and it sounds like that is coming along very nicely indeed.
(07/27 16:41:31) Kelsei A.T. nods tiredly
(07/27 16:41:31) Jules Lavisham: Kelsei, how are we looking on that?
(07/27 16:41:44) Kelsei A.T.: We're on schedule for a release in September- the 9th,
(07/27 16:42:03) Kelsei A.T.: we probably could have pushed it earlier, but between everything Mysterium and such...
(07/27 16:42:24) Kelsei A.T.: well, August is looking to be a busy month as it is and i think we all could use a bit of a break between the first half of August, and Naybree's release.
(07/27 16:42:32) Kelsei A.T. smiles
(07/27 16:42:43) Kelsei A.T.: Highgarden will likely be in october, pending on Keith's schedule
(07/27 16:42:59) Kelsei A.T.: and the butterflies.
(07/27 16:42:59) Jules Lavisham: And sorting out that pesky butterfly business, presumably.
(07/27 16:43:04) Kelsei A.T. chuckles to self, tiredly.
(07/27 16:43:32) Kelsei A.T.: as a reminder, there's the Summer Festival at the start of August,
(07/27 16:43:34) Kelsei A.T.: first week of,
(07/27 16:43:42) Kelsei A.T.: im sure you're all well aware of that, though
(07/27 16:43:48) Tiernan Quinlan: Aye, sounds like fun!
(07/27 16:44:05) Kelsei A.T.: Mysterium's the following weekend, and pub decorations should be up sometime before that, and stretching through the rest of the month.
(07/27 16:44:25) NoMore: we planned only to play myst and myst lkie that game during that period, right, ALotFo...?
(07/27 16:44:28) Kelsei A.T.: oh, Ten, first aid kits?
(07/27 16:44:28) ALotOf: Right... my setup is ready... wanna see you run out of orbs in descent lol..
(07/27 16:44:42) Tiernan Quinlan grins.
(07/27 16:45:18) Tiernan Quinlan: Ah, yes, I jus' wanted t' let folks know that we have supplies of First Aid kits for all of y' to pack in your bags for explorations.
(07/27 16:45:46) Tiernan Quinlan: Jus' stop by th' Clinic an' pick one up. If I'm not there, one of th' folks helpin' out will get y' one.
(07/27 16:46:10) Tiernan Quinlan: We're also talkin' about doin' some more First Aid classes if anyone would like to get a fresh up.
(07/27 16:46:19) Tiernan Quinlan: Jus' let me know!
(07/27 16:46:29) Thumbs up from Tiernan Quinlan
(07/27 16:46:38) Jules Lavisham: Might take you up on that, Tenny. Been a few years since my St John's Ambulance.
(07/27 16:46:46) Tiernan Quinlan grins.
(07/27 16:47:12) Jules Lavisham: Right, let me see, anything else... blimey, zipping through these today...
(07/27 16:47:13) ALotOf: 'firsz add classes' for programmers here...
(07/27 16:47:21) Kelsei A.T.: rei'schu's the only thing left i think?
(07/27 16:47:31) Jules Lavisham: Oh yes, the planned delegation to Rei'schu!
(07/27 16:47:41) Kelsei A.T.: right
(07/27 16:47:44) Jules Lavisham: Any word from Cal how's that coming, Kels?
(07/27 16:47:46) TikiBear: People should be trained on fire extinguishers at some point.
(07/27 16:47:49) Kelsei A.T.: so, the age has hit something of a High Pollen Season,
(07/27 16:47:57) NoMore: I'm in ALotoF
(07/27 16:48:09) Kelsei A.T.: the locals are miserable this time of year because of it, and we're going to wait for it to subside before sending folks in.
(07/27 16:48:36) Kelsei A.T.: also, between everything that's going on, we're still waiting on Tenny to look into vaccines for local colds,
(07/27 16:48:46) Kelsei A.T.: those vaccines take time, after all?
(07/27 16:48:49) Kelsei A.T. smiles tiredly.
(07/27 16:49:10) Kelsei A.T.: im no doctor, but I think we all'd feel safer without that kind of risk of contamination.
(07/27 16:49:16) Tiernan Quinlan: Aye. I'm in contact w' my friends at Argon who are workin' on it. They're making progress though!
(07/27 16:49:24) Thumbs up from Kelsei A.T.
(07/27 16:49:38) Kelsei A.T.: i think a refresher on the most wanted list is in order, jules?
(07/27 16:49:39) Tiernan Quinlan: They have quite a few thin's to analyze at th' moment.
(07/27 16:49:53) Tiernan Quinlan nods.
(07/27 16:50:06) Jules Lavisham: Yes, absolutely, given recent events.
(07/27 16:50:22) Jules Lavisham: We provided their names and KI numbers last time, I'll do a recap of those.
(07/27 16:50:36) Jules Lavisham: Hang on, let me check my notes...
(07/27 16:50:58) Jules Lavisham: Mita Staser, ID 11934130
(07/27 16:51:19) Jules Lavisham: Case Kafsing, ID 11934356
(07/27 16:51:37) Jules Lavisham: Sanna Koskelainen, ID 11938528
(07/27 16:51:52) Jules Lavisham: Tally, ID 11932822
(07/27 16:52:19) Jules Lavisham: and lastly, Marcus Johnson, ID 11799065.

Linking sounds are heard in the Courtyard.

(07/27 16:52:28) Aurelias panics
(07/27 16:52:42) Kelsei A.T.: oh what now-
(07/27 16:52:42) NoMore: wasn't Tally 11934822...?
(07/27 16:52:52) Jules Lavisham: I have to stress once again, these people are linked to numerous damage and threats to explorer's safety aruind the Cavern
(07/27 16:53:00) Jules Lavisham: and are considered to be HIGHLY dangerous individuals.
(07/27 16:53:10) Kelsei A.T.: jules-

Three individuals rush into the Community Room.

(07/27 16:53:13) Marcus Johnson: That we are!
(07/27 16:53:18) Jules Lavisham: Do not attempt to approach, just report their whereabouts-
(07/27 16:53:22) Jules Lavisham: ...
(07/27 16:53:22) Kelsei A.T.: Jules!
(07/27 16:53:28) Marcus Johnson: So I guess if you need to report us, you'll have something to report right now.
(07/27 16:53:30) Jules Lavisham: Oh boy.
(07/27 16:53:31) Sanna Koskelainen: Hello, intruders.
(07/27 16:53:39) Tally: We're right here.
(07/27 16:53:41) Kelsei A.T.: well hello, sabboteurs.
(07/27 16:53:42) Aurelias: Beetlejuice, beetlejuice, beetlejuice!
(07/27 16:53:44) Kelsei A.T. growls
(07/27 16:53:44) Marcus Johnson: Don't worry, intruders.
(07/27 16:53:46) Marcus Johnson: We won't be long.
(07/27 16:53:56) Marcus Johnson and his friends keep their hands near their Relto books.
(07/27 16:53:58) Tiernan Quinlan: Stay back folks, jus' stand away...
(07/27 16:54:05) Marcus Johnson: We've come with a message.
(07/27 16:54:14) Kelsei A.T.: what kind of message?
(07/27 16:54:15) Marcus Johnson: We've tried to be subtle about it, but clearly that hasn't worked.
(07/27 16:54:19) Kelsei A.T.: subtle?
(07/27 16:54:20) Sanna Koskelainen: So we're going to be a little more direct.
(07/27 16:54:23) Kelsei A.T.: you call what you've done subtle!?
(07/27 16:54:27) Tally: You don't belong here.
(07/27 16:54:34) Kelsei A.T.: i'd dare say you've made your point.
(07/27 16:54:38) Marcus Johnson: You need to leave.
(07/27 16:54:43) Kelsei A.T.: Not happening.
(07/27 16:54:47) Marcus Johnson: This cavern isn't yours.
(07/27 16:54:50) Tally: This cavern belongs to the D'ni.
(07/27 16:54:51) Jules Lavisham grits his teeth
(07/27 16:54:53) Kelsei A.T.: says who?
(07/27 16:55:05) Marcus Johnson: If a man is driven out of his home, does that give others the right to live in it?
(07/27 16:55:07) Kelsei A.T.: the D'ni moved onto Releeshahn.
(07/27 16:55:27) Tally: Not all of them.
(07/27 16:55:31) Marcus Johnson: No, Kelsei. WE are the D'ni. And we're here to tell you that the owner is back.
(07/27 16:55:36) Kelsei A.T. narrows her eyes...
(07/27 16:55:37) Marcus Johnson: And you are trespassing.
(07/27 16:55:40) Kelsei A.T.: prove it.
(07/27 16:55:42) Jules Lavisham: OWNER?!
(07/27 16:55:50) Jules Lavisham: Oh, don't be absurd.
(07/27 16:55:55) Marcus Johnson: Yes, owner.
(07/27 16:55:57) Sanna Koskelainen: Yes! We are the owners of this Cavern. US, not you!
(07/27 16:55:58) Kelsei A.T.: you say you're D'ni. prove it with a genetics test.
(07/27 16:55:58) Jules Lavisham: You're no D'ni.
(07/27 16:56:07) Marcus Johnson: We have the D'ni blood
(07/27 16:56:09) Jules Lavisham: You're children, playing in a world you know NOTHING about!
(07/27 16:56:13) Tiernan Quinlan: Aye!
(07/27 16:56:14) Marcus Johnson: And we follow the true D'ni Prophet.
(07/27 16:56:16) Sanna Koskelainen: You wouldn't say that if you knew what we know.
(07/27 16:56:21) Kelsei A.T.: prophets, oh good grief...
(07/27 16:56:25) Kelsei A.T.: not that nonsense again.
(07/27 16:56:35) Marcus Johnson: Keep antagonizing us, Jules, and you'll see just what these "children" can do.
(07/27 16:56:36) Tiernan Quinlan: Folks, move away. Stand behind me.
(07/27 16:56:41) Marcus Johnson: Know this:
(07/27 16:56:54) Marcus Johnson: We've abstained from violence so far, but our leader tires of your meddling.
(07/27 16:56:59) Marcus Johnson: The time is at hand.
(07/27 16:57:01) Tally: This cavern, these Ages, are NOT YOURS.
(07/27 16:57:06) Sanna Koskelainen: This is the last time we'll use words.
(07/27 16:57:07) Aurelias leans left
(07/27 16:57:18) Marcus Johnson: Yahvo commands you to leave, or you will find we are not nearly so restrained in the future.
(07/27 16:57:21) Tiernan Quinlan: Be calmed, Aurelias, I won't let anyone hurt you.
(07/27 16:57:25) Sanna Koskelainen: We are under the direct command of YAHVO Himself!
(07/27 16:57:30) Kelsei A.T.: Oh for the love of-
(07/27 16:57:31) Sanna Koskelainen: Do you not understand?
(07/27 16:57:31) Marcus Johnson: People will die, and their blood will be on your hands.
(07/27 16:57:35) Tally: We're not messing around anymore.
(07/27 16:57:36) Tiernan Quinlan frowns.
(07/27 16:57:48) Tiernan Quinlan: Oh, I don't think so. Not on my watch.
(07/27 16:57:54) Jules Lavisham: Taking no responsibility for your actions... just like children.
(07/27 16:57:58) Sanna Koskelainen: We are not doing this of our own will. We are doing this for His sake, to fulfill His commands to His people.
(07/27 16:58:04) Marcus Johnson: Leave D'ni and all of its Ages, and never come back, or face Yahvo's wrath.
(07/27 16:58:10) Marcus Johnson: You've been warned.
(07/27 16:58:11) Kelsei A.T.: I sincerely doubt that.
(07/27 16:58:19) Sanna Koskelainen: You will find out.

Tally, Marcus, Sanna Link out.

(07/27 16:58:25) Aurelias waves goodbye
(07/27 16:58:31) Kelsei A.T.: ....oh that was creepy,
(07/27 16:58:37) Kelsei A.T.: did anyone else hear a bahro just before they vanished?
(07/27 16:58:43) Jules Lavisham visibly exhales
(07/27 16:58:44) Tiernan Quinlan: Is everyone alright?
(07/27 16:58:45) Aurelias: Speak of the devil, huh?
(07/27 16:58:47) Kelsei A.T.: by chezahcen what was that?!
(07/27 16:58:55) Jules Lavisham: ... well. That happened.
(07/27 16:59:08) Kelsei A.T.: i think we'll postpone the voting, jules,
(07/27 16:59:13) Kelsei A.T.: i need to message Calum, Jules, and Patrick.
(07/27 16:59:15) Tiernan Quinlan nods his head
(07/27 16:59:17) Jules Lavisham brings his notes to his face, but drops them
(07/27 16:59:31) Jules Lavisham: Yes, Kelsei, I think that's a good idea.
(07/27 16:59:31) Kelsei A.T.: you okay, jules?
(07/27 16:59:42) Jules Lavisham: I will be.
(07/27 16:59:43) Kelsei A.T.: ...another Bahro too.
(07/27 16:59:46) Jules Lavisham: I just
(07/27 16:59:47) Kelsei A.T.: they dont seem happy either.
(07/27 16:59:53) Kelsei A.T. glances upwards...
(07/27 17:00:04) Jules Lavisham: I wasn't
(07/27 17:00:12) Jules Lavisham takes a deep breath
(07/27 17:00:14) Tiernan Quinlan looks up warily.
(07/27 17:00:32) Jules Lavisham: We'll be posting a transcript of tonight's meeting to the Beneath forums
(07/27 17:00:35) Kelsei A.T.: keep an eye on your hood fountain access hatches, folks.
(07/27 17:00:43) Night-Tripper: ?
(07/27 17:00:46) Jules Lavisham: and potentially looking at doing summary writeups for inclusion in the Chiso library
(07/27 17:00:49) Tiernan Quinlan: Well. Now we know what most of them look like. <sigh>
(07/27 17:00:49) TikiBear: That's what those are?
(07/27 17:00:55) Aurelias: Are what-now access hatches?
(07/27 17:01:00) Jules Lavisham: Take care, everyone.
(07/27 17:01:03) ALotOf: ... was too fat to catch up...
(07/27 17:01:04) Kelsei A.T.: there's a small hatch on the fountains,
(07/27 17:01:05) NoMore: ... too fast for playin' teledahn tubes, yeah...
(07/27 17:01:10) Jules Lavisham: If anyone needs to talk about things with us,
(07/27 17:01:19) Kelsei A.T.: the tools we confiscated at the overflow station were for hooking something up to a fountain feeder pipe.
(07/27 17:01:26) Jules Lavisham: we'll do our best to make ourselves available, for a chat or anything else.
(07/27 17:01:32) Kelsei A.T.: Calum's hunch that he was chasing after was that someone would attempt it here,
(07/27 17:01:48) Kelsei A.T.: he chased off someone, we found the hatch opened, but the pipes not messed with.
(07/27 17:02:06) Kelsei A.T. grimaces
(07/27 17:02:08) Kelsei A.T. shakes her head
(07/27 17:02:13) Jules Lavisham: Kelsei...
(07/27 17:02:22) Kelsei A.T.: i need to talk with Cal and Carl
(07/27 17:02:26) Kelsei A.T.: i need to know what they're doing.
(07/27 17:02:33) Jules Lavisham: I think it may be time to bring in that outside help we were talking about.
(07/27 17:02:33) Kelsei A.T.: if they were trying to time that with that STUNT of theirs...
(07/27 17:02:36) Kelsei A.T.: yes,
(07/27 17:02:38) Kelsei A.T. nods
(07/27 17:02:47) Kelsei A.T.: that Doctor fellow, oh what was his name...
(07/27 17:02:50) Kelsei A.T. shakes her head
(07/27 17:02:52) Tiernan Quinlan: Outside help?
(07/27 17:02:53) Kelsei A.T.: and that PI maybe?
(07/27 17:03:06) Kelsei A.T. sighs shakily
(07/27 17:03:09) Jules Lavisham: We'll fill you in, Doc.
(07/27 17:03:12) Night-Tripper: Who?
(07/27 17:03:13) Kelsei A.T.: sorry, I need to go check on Calum and Carl.
(07/27 17:03:20) Kelsei A.T.: take care, all, stay safe.
(07/27 17:03:29) Tiernan Quinlan: Call me if you need me.
(07/27 17:03:33) ALotOf: PI = 3.1415...
(07/27 17:03:33) Kelsei A.T. reltos out...
(07/27 17:03:46) Jules Lavisham: Will do, Tenny.
(07/27 17:03:48) Tiernan Quinlan sighs deeply.
(07/27 17:04:04) Aurelias: "Reltos out" is the new drop the mic
(07/27 17:04:09) Tiernan Quinlan: I could use a drink.
(07/27 17:04:17) Jules Lavisham: Same. Pub?
(07/27 17:04:20) Tiernan Quinlan: Aye.
(07/27 17:04:37) Jules Lavisham: All assembled are more than welcome to join us.
(07/27 17:04:44) Tiernan Quinlan: Aye, please do.
(07/27 17:04:49) TikiBear: I'll drink to that!
(07/27 17:04:50) Tiernan Quinlan smiles weakly.
(07/27 17:05:02) Tiernan Quinlan shakes his head a moment and sighs again.
(07/27 17:05:06) NoMore: Kahlo's pub mgiht bew a bit 'dry' at this time of year lol...
(07/27 17:05:23) Tiernan Quinlan: Meet y'all there then?
(07/27 17:05:33) Jules Lavisham: I've made a healthy contribution to the New Messenger's Pub's backroom
(07/27 17:05:41) Ecconia: I just hope, I won't dream of saboteurs this night...
(07/27 17:05:55) ALotOf: yeah and what aboutmy highscores, ALotOf? You always ruin them...
(07/27 17:06:17) Semjay: That was exciting, wasn't it?
