(04/06 13:00:52)Korov’ev: Happy Day of the Circle, and welcome to the 108th All Guilds Meeting!

(04/06 13:01:04)Korov’ev: Trivia: since April 2010, when it started, only one All Guilds Meeting was skipped.

(04/06 13:01:25)Boywhith: why was that?

(04/06 13:01:33)My.St’ro: yeah?

(04/06 13:01:40)Korov’ev: It was one of the early ones

(04/06 13:02:00)My.St’ro: excusable then

(04/06 13:02:05)Korov’ev: As usual, I’ll remind you the 5 Meeting Rules:

(04/06 13:02:13)Korov’ev: 1. Please *keep chatter to a minimum* while speakers are talking. The occasional comment or emote is fine, but be respectful and let the speaker finish.

(04/06 13:02:28)Korov’ev: 2. If you have a question for a speaker, please don’t ask it directly: PM it to me. Be sure a “?” is somewhere in it to properly log the question in the queue.

(04/06 13:02:40)Korov’ev: 3. Speakers, please indicate when you are done speaking and ready for questions, and when you’re ready for the next question.

(04/06 13:02:50)Korov’ev: 4. If a question requires a long explanation, we may have to skip it to keep things moving. In that case, you can always PM any speaker once they’ve left the stage.

(04/06 13:03:03)Korov’ev: 5. A summary and a chatlog of the Meeting will be published in the next few days on the Guild of Messengers’ brand new site:

(04/06 13:03:40)Korov’ev: And don`t drink the lake water!

(04/06 13:03:53)Korov’ev: PSA: as Mass Mysteria is on May 4, the next Meeting is postponed to the 11th.

(04/06 13:04:14)Korov’ev: This month we have both the International Mother Earth Day and the D’ni New Year!

(04/06 13:11:12)Minasunda: 4. — The dance group will have to do some rehearsals. I know, it is very tempting to watch us ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

(04/06 13:11:40)Minasunda: So if you see Mir-O-Bot in Tsogal with 5 or more people and you do not want to spoil the surprise, then DO NOT come to Mir-O-Bot :)))

(04/06 13:11:56)Minasunda: But if it still has to be, then please keep quiet and do not use magic commands to not disturb.

(04/06 13:13:31)Emor D’ni Lap applauds

(04/06 13:13:42)R0’JETHHE: Wouldn’t miss it for the world.

(04/06 13:13:47)Korov’ev: And now it’s time for an update from the Minkata shard!

(04/06 13:13:54)Korov’ev: Let’s welcome rarified!

(04/06 13:13:57)Boywhith: The last show was wonderful!

(04/06 13:14:04)Mirphak: welcome rarified ๐Ÿ™‚

(04/06 13:14:08)Minasunda: thank you Boy ๐Ÿ™‚

(04/06 13:14:15)rarified: Shorah, all!

(04/06 13:14:43)rarified: I wanted to give a quick update on progress in the OU world towards

(04/06 13:14:59)rarified: moving Fan Content along.

(04/06 13:15:21)rarified: As I announced last AGM, I’ve been able to restore the proper behavior of

(04/06 13:15:43)rarified: the basic Minkata shard, and people have not found problems there over the last few weeks.

(04/06 13:16:00)rarified: This month I’ve been working hard to deploy what I’m calling Minkata Alpha.

(04/06 13:16:25)rarified: This is the shard that a particular Fan Content item will appear when it becomes

(04/06 13:16:31)rarified: elegible for testing.

(04/06 13:16:48)rarified: Bringing up the shard has required some changes (fixes) to the game client, as well

(04/06 13:16:54)rarified: as bringing up a second server.

(04/06 13:17:17)rarified: I want to give our testers my appreciation for keeping up on spotting problems

(04/06 13:17:28)rarified: with the Alpha shard, and behavior of the client.

(04/06 13:17:52)rarified: There is no Fan Content there … yet. But I am “This Close” ™ to asking Doobes

(04/06 13:18:07)rarified: for a current copy of his Pub, to start working with that.

(04/06 13:18:24)rarified: There are also a couple of changes that have to be brought over from the H’Uru

(04/06 13:18:44)rarified: client code base in order to use content generated with the current Korman.

(04/06 13:19:10)rarified: These are all happening behind the scenes, so to speak. But I am starting to get

(04/06 13:19:37)rarified: optimistic about announcing a wide-open test on Minkata Alpha soon.

(04/06 13:20:01)rarified: Once we have got Fan Content working there, we will be working on a process for

(04/06 13:20:24)rarified: submitting Fan Content to Cyan for their approval and hopefully integration into MOULa.

(04/06 13:20:44)My.St’ro: That’s awesome!

(04/06 13:20:46)rarified: I do think that Doobes’ pub won’t be the first item, our past discussions with Cyan

(04/06 13:20:55)TT101: Shorah everyone :))

(04/06 13:21:13)rarified: indicated they would like to have a bridge (i.e. Fan Nexus) in place first.

(04/06 13:21:32)rarified: But there are several projects in that category either complete or almost so.

(04/06 13:21:41)rarified: So… stay tuned!

(04/06 13:21:50)rarified: That’s it from me.

(04/06 13:22:04)Mirphak clap

(04/06 13:22:09)Korov’ev: Thank you rarified!

(04/06 13:22:13)rarified: Any questions?

(04/06 13:22:13)Mirphak: taht sound good ๐Ÿ™‚

(04/06 13:22:19)rarified bows

(04/06 13:22:21)Mirphak: thank you rarified

(04/06 13:22:23)Korov’ev: none in queue

(04/06 13:22:27)Boywhith: I hope we will have fan content here soon!!!

(04/06 13:22:43)Korov’ev: Time for some Mysterium and Cyan news…

(04/06 13:22:52)Korov’ev: The Myst e-Book novels and the Riven digital map rewards for Writer’s tier backers have not yet been released, and there’s no estimate of when yet.

(04/06 13:23:05)Korov’ev: Also, the Fangamer coupon has been extended: you now have until April 30th to use it. Fangamer also confirms new items will be available soon.

(04/06 13:23:23)Korov’ev: Now, for the news most of you are expecting: the Kickstarter for Firmament is open!

(04/06 13:23:31)Korov’ev:

(04/06 13:24:02)Korov’ev: Currently it’s 45% funded, but the more funds it gets the better, so if you haven’t backed it yet, it’s time!

(04/06 13:24:19)Korov’ev: If you enjoy anxiety, you can see a live projection here:

(04/06 13:24:36)Korov’ev: As a clarification, while the game is developed for VR first, it will work fine as a classic PC game too.

(04/06 13:24:40)rarified reaches for oxygen

(04/06 13:24:53)Korov’ev: Unfortunately, support for macOS is not planned for the Kickstarter. Cyan is working on it, but for now it will be for Windows only.

(04/06 13:25:05)Korov’ev: The release is currently planned to be on Steam, GOG, Viveport, and Oculus Store.

(04/06 13:25:07)BIG thumbs down from R0’JETHHE

(04/06 13:25:22)Korov’ev: By the way, if you were at PAX East or Indie MegaBooth, Cyan showcased Firmament and ZED there, respectively.

(04/06 13:25:36)Korov’ev: Speaking of Kickstarters: if you backed The Five Cores, the soundtrack of the game will be composed by Alain Pachins, aka Turjan Aylahn!

(04/06 13:26:06)Korov’ev: For Mysterium, registration and hotel reservations are now open!

(04/06 13:26:23)Korov’ev: The location will be the Ruby River Hotel in downtown Spokane, in walking distance of the downtown core and Riverfront Park, and overlooks the Spokane River.

(04/06 13:26:49)Korov’ev:

(04/06 13:27:01)Korov’ev: After Russell Brower, the second special guest will be…

(04/06 13:27:07)Korov’ev: Jack Wall!

(04/06 13:27:16)Korov’ev: ASCAP award-winning, BAFTA nominated, best known for his video game scores (as in Call of Duty: Black Ops, Mass Effect, and more to the point, Myst III and IV).

(04/06 13:27:42)Boywhith: Sooo good soundtracks!

(04/06 13:27:43)Korov’ev:

(04/06 13:27:59)My.St’ro: Wow!

(04/06 13:28:07)Korov’ev: Moving to this year’s shirt, it will sport Xemylixa’s design on the front and calumTraveler’s design on the back:

(04/06 13:29:05)Korov’ev: After June 1st, the price will increase and shirts/books will not be available.

(04/06 13:29:17)Korov’ev: The Committee is also collecting memories from past editions, to be displayed in some fashion.

(04/06 13:29:30)Korov’ev: More on that soon.

(04/06 13:29:37)Korov’ev: As a reminder, event submissions are still open. The deadline is May 20th.

(04/06 13:29:44)Korov’ev:

(04/06 13:30:11)Emor D’ni Lap applauds

(04/06 13:31:03)shokhootahn Rehn: I have two separate announcements. One is for the D’ni Language Class and the other one is for r’Tayrtahn’s Story Night.

(04/06 13:31:13)shokhootahn Rehn: First, the language classes…

(04/06 13:31:33)shokhootahn Rehn: On the surface, I am in the process of moving. As a result there will not be any daytime classes until further notice. They *should* be able to return sometime in June.

(04/06 13:32:09)shokhootahn Rehn: The Guild of Instructors’ Hood will be open and public. I will announce the availability of classes on the Hood imager when they are ready to resume.

(04/06 13:33:56)shokhootahn Rehn: Thre are two more students who have completed their classes and submitted their final exams. Unfortunately, due to the afore-mentioned surface ussues, I have not been able to grade them, as yet. I will get to them as soon as possible so please be patient. ๐Ÿ™‚

(04/06 13:34:09)shokhootahn Rehn: Are there any questions?

(04/06 13:34:18)Korov’ev: none in queue

(04/06 13:34:31)shokhootahn Rehn: kk

(04/06 13:34:34)shokhootahn Rehn: The second announcement is about r’Taytahn’s Story Night.

(04/06 13:34:44)shokhootahn Rehn: Due to my traveling, Story Night – Europe is at a different stage of the history than is original Story Night.

(04/06 13:34:58)shokhootahn Rehn: For Story Night – Europe, we will be continuing the events from The Book of Atrus.

(04/06 13:35:35)shokhootahn Rehn: Please note: due to Easter weekend there will be no Story Night – Europe on April 20. Story Night – Europe will resume on April 27… barring any last-minute travel plans. The actual move will be towards the end of the month so there may or may not be a story on April 27. You can always check the left imager in the Hood, the bots, or the forums… though, I don’t always remember to post updates in the forums.

(04/06 13:35:46)shokhootahn Rehn: For original Story Night, we will be continue with the events in The Book of D’ni.

(04/06 13:36:30)shokhootahn Rehn: Story Night is held in the public neighborhood of Tsahno’s Hood every Saturday.

(04/06 13:36:46)shokhootahn Rehn: Original Story Night is held at 23:30 KI time on Saturday night. We start gathering at the hood’s fountain starting at 23:00 KI time.

(04/06 13:37:00)shokhootahn Rehn: Story Night – Europe is held at 14:00 KI time on Saturday afternoon. We start gathering at the hood’s fountain starting at 13:30 KI time except for AGM Saturdays, when it starts at 14:00 KI or 30 minutes after the AGM, whichever is later. Again, I use Magic Bot to advertise changes to Story Night times for both Europe and original.

(04/06 13:37:24)shokhootahn Rehn: Times for original Story Night (Saturdays at 23:30 KI time) are unaffected by my traveling. However, they are affected by power outages due to thunderstorms… which, unfortunately, ’tis always the season. Should this be the case, I will try to aprise one or two of my regular audience members of the situation so they can spread the news. ๐Ÿ™‚

(04/06 13:37:45)shokhootahn Rehn: The stories are told using voice so you will need to have your speakers or headsets on.

(04/06 13:37:56)shokhootahn Rehn: r’Tayrtahn announces the start of Story Night through buddy chat. If you would like to receive the announcements, please send r’T a KI mail (with your KI number included in the text) and he’ll add you to his buddies list. His KI number is 58324. KI mails do not identify the KI number of the sender so it must be added to the body of the text.


(04/06 13:38:41)shokhootahn Rehn: Some have sent messages to be added but have not included their KI mail so they were unable to be added.

(04/06 13:38:54)shokhootahn Rehn: Also, I use Magic Bot’s (KI #27527) advertisements to announce last-minute changes to Story Night times.

(04/06 13:39:18)shokhootahn Rehn: (when he is on-line)

(04/06 13:39:26)shokhootahn Rehn: Again, Story Night – Europe will begin 30 minutes after the conclusion of today’s AGM or at 14:00 KI time, whichever is later.
