(02/04 13:25:20) Emor D’ni Lap applauds Minasunda’s excellent copypasting job!

(02/04 13:25:23) Minasunda thanks you

(02/04 13:25:32) Doobes: No question…just want to commend you all for creating another great schedule of events this year!

(02/04 13:25:33) Calum Traveler: thank you, Minasunda!

(02/04 13:25:49) Doobes nods

(02/04 13:25:58) Calum Traveler: this is the 30th anniversary year for the MYST Franchise as a whole

(02/04 13:26:51) Calum Traveler beckons you

(02/04 13:26:51) Calum Traveler: Dah’mpa!

(02/04 13:27:00) Hawu Meninp salutes

(02/04 13:27:09) Dah’mpa: Thanks, Cal. Shorah everyone 🙂

(02/04 13:27:20) Dah’mpa: My first speech in AGM, I’m a bit nervous… and trembling 😀

(02/04 13:27:28) Doobes: You got this. 🙂

(02/04 13:27:33) judyg: 🙂

(02/04 13:27:37) Dah’mpa: Jokes aside, I’d like to talk a bit about the wall game event, just a few remarks (4, to be exact)

(02/04 13:27:39) Ro”Jethhe: Don’t be we’re all family

(02/04 13:27:48) Claidi Song: we’re an excellent audience

(02/04 13:27:51) Dah’mpa: Before I begin, allow me some thanks.

(02/04 13:27:59) Dah’mpa: First of all, I’d like to thank Hazado and everyone else that work so hard to give us the opportunity to enjoy this wonderful game. You’re doing an awesome job fixing bugs and improving the game code in order to offer us a better play experience, thank you so much.

(02/04 13:28:10) Hazado blinks

(02/04 13:28:11) Doobes: Hear hear!

(02/04 13:28:18) Thumbs up from Calum Traveler

(02/04 13:28:20) Hawu Meninp thanks you

(02/04 13:28:25) My’key sips a whiskey on you

(02/04 13:28:25) Thumbs up from Caeser

(02/04 13:28:32) Dah’mpa: I’d also like to thank Minasunda for organising the whole event and for her willingness to help whenever I needed.

(02/04 13:28:48) Dah’mpa: Next, I’d like to thank all competitors already enroled (and those yet to sign up), without you this event wouldn’t happen, obviously 🙂

(02/04 13:28:51) Hawu Meninp thanks you

(02/04 13:29:01) Dah’mpa: Last but not least, I’d like to thank all explorers that helped me out with testing events, training sessions and stuff. A lot of people indeed, but I’d like to explicitly mention (in alphabetic order) Calum, IwonK, Nosila and Scharm. You all were really amazing, thank you very much 🙂

(02/04 13:29:22) IwonK: 🙂

(02/04 13:29:23) Calum Traveler: ^u^

(02/04 13:29:24) Hawu Meninp thanks you, too

(02/04 13:29:29) Dah’mpa: Ok then, first remark: about schedule. As you heard from Minasunda, there will be two wall game competitions. Any player can participate in either or even both competitions.

(02/04 13:29:42) Dah’mpa: The goal behind the idea of having two competitions is to have two different schedules, in order to provide opportunities for more players (as well as spectators) to participate.

(02/04 13:30:01) Dah’mpa: Second remark: there will be only single-player teams competitions (meaning 1 vs 1). It’s well known that multiplayer teams mode is available in wall games, so why not a multiplayer teams competition instead of a single-player one?

(02/04 13:30:15) Dah’mpa: Well, tests showed that even if multiplayer teams wall games are quite playable (and surely fun, have to say that), when it comes to play many matches in a row (like in a competition) things can get pretty messy. So I found safer to limit this contest to 1 vs 1 wall games.

(02/04 13:30:32) Dah’mpa: It has to be mentioned though that devs and testers are working hard to get rid of these issues, I’m sure we’ll be able to have wall games competitions in multiplayer mode soon enough. I look forward to it 😀

(02/04 13:30:59) Dah’mpa: Third remark: about enrolment. You’ve also heard from Mina that enrolment ends today. That’s because the format of each competition strongly depends on the number of competitors and I’d like to have all set the day before the event. So, late registrations won’t be accepted, sorry about that.

(02/04 13:31:11) My’key: easy pls, i gotta read it.9

(02/04 13:31:19) Dah’mpa: ok, sorry

(02/04 13:31:45) Thumbs up from My’key

(02/04 13:31:47) Dah’mpa: Also, only players that really know how to play the game can sign up. You don’t actually have to be a skilled player, it’s sufficient to know how the game works and how to play it (including how to operate the Control Panel). But you do have to know the basics.

(02/04 13:32:15) Doobes: Yes, don’t let that pesky announcer get ya down. 😛

(02/04 13:32:22) Dah’mpa: That’s because it’d be virtually impossible to explain how wall games work at the moment of the competition. You know, actually it isn’t hard to learn how to play it, but it isn’t straight forward either.

(02/04 13:32:38) Dah’mpa: lol@Doobes

(02/04 13:32:54) Dah’mpa: Finally, last remark: about how to get there and other related stuff. Both competitions will take place at Wally’mpa’s Gahreesen.

(02/04 13:33:10) Dah’mpa: As Minasunda said, meeting point for players and spectators will be the Watcher’s Pub. Wally’mpa will be waiting for you in his fancy maintainer suit, ready to share his Relto book (from there you can go directly to the Maintainer Facility through the journey link in Gahreesen book).

(02/04 13:33:37) Dah’mpa: There’s an important thing to have in mind though. Wally’mpa… you know, he’s me… or I’m him… I mean, we share the same puppeteer 😀

(02/04 13:34:02) Kayara: lol

(02/04 13:34:03) Doobes: You…are…you?

(02/04 13:34:06) Doobes: 😛

(02/04 13:34:10) My’key: uru?

(02/04 13:34:12) Emor D’ni Lap: Who would have guessed?

(02/04 13:34:12) Dah’mpa: hope so

(02/04 13:34:14) philipgr: Twins

(02/04 13:34:18) IwonK: I see what you did there, Doobes ;P

(02/04 13:34:23) Dah’mpa: So, you may find yourself in the Watcher’s Pub waiting (and waiting, and waiting…) for any life sign of Wally’mpa, because the other me (this one who’s talking to you right now) can be a bit busy in the competition. Please be patient, Wally’mpa will eventually share his book with you.

(02/04 13:34:33) Caeser: Less chatter please when they are talking

(02/04 13:34:45) Emor D’ni Lap: quiet, Caeser

(02/04 13:34:51) Dah’mpa: Besides (and even more important), as to minimize chances of bugs and other issues, I’ll avoid letting people enter Gahreesen during an ongoing wall game match. So, if you’re late, you may have to wait up to 10 or even 15 minutes before linking to Gahreesen.

(02/04 13:35:22) Dah’mpa: To make communication easier, Wally’mpa will be sit if he’s not available, and will stand up when he’s ready to share his book.

(02/04 13:35:32) Dah’mpa: That’s it, any question?

(02/04 13:35:36) Calum Traveler: none in queue

(02/04 13:35:41) My’key: quite a plan you got..

(02/04 13:35:44) Thumbs up from My’key

(02/04 13:35:47) Doobes: Seems pretty straightforward. Should be fun!

(02/04 13:35:56) Dah’mpa thanks you

(02/04 13:36:00) Dah’mpa: I’ll be around for a while after AGM if anyone wants to talk about the event. Thank you very much.

(02/04 13:36:05) Calum Traveler: thank you, Dah’mpa 🙂

(02/04 13:36:15) Doobes: See? Piece of cake, Dah’mpa. 🙂

(02/04 13:36:15) Frobozz spams the clap

(02/04 13:36:21) IwonK: or a cookie 😉

(02/04 13:36:23) Dah’mpa: 😀

(02/04 13:36:24) Doobes: That too.

(02/04 13:36:29) Calum Traveler: aaaaaaalrighty, time for some *dev talk*!

(02/04 13:36:33) My’key: piece of cookie

(02/04 13:42:09) rarified bows

(02/04 13:42:16) Calum Traveler: thank you, rarified!

(02/04 13:42:21) Hawu Meninp thanks you

(02/04 13:42:35) Calum Traveler: while rarified was posting, a new blog post was published!

(02/04 13:42:50) Calum Traveler: you can find it hot off the presses at:

(02/04 13:43:37) Calum Traveler: onto our next speaker…

(02/04 13:43:40) Calum Traveler does a drumroll…

(02/04 13:43:46) Calum Traveler beckons you

(02/04 13:43:46) Calum Traveler: DOOBES!

(02/04 13:43:53) Caeser: clap

(02/04 13:43:56) Hawu Meninp salutes

(02/04 13:44:03) Doobes waves hello

(02/04 13:44:11) Doobes: Hi there!

(02/04 13:44:18) Doobes: Just wanted to breeze in to give you all a few updates.

(02/04 13:44:31) Doobes: First and foremost, barring anything catasrophic, I will for sure be attending Mysterium this year!

(02/04 13:44:46) Doobes: Not only that, but plans to have a presentation are also in the works.

(02/04 13:45:07) Doobes: (FYI, from earlier, event submissions for Mysterium end on April 29th)

(02/04 13:45:19) Calum Traveler: (yes, ty, i did flub that haha)

(02/04 13:45:20) Doobes: Specifically, I’ll be demonstrating Blender for Korman and the ZLZ Age Importer.

(02/04 13:45:31) Doobes: With the former, I plan to show how to build a basic Age right on the spot.

(02/04 13:45:46) Doobes: The latter will be to (briefly) show the ongoing process of converting the Cyan Ages into usable blend files.

(02/04 13:46:03) Doobes: Note that I’ve submitted the event to the Mysterium committee, but the final schedule is still very much in the works.

(02/04 13:46:21) Calum Traveler sweats a little, remembering the chaos of last year’s scheduling…

(02/04 13:46:24) Doobes: If you can’t attend, not to worry…as they always do, the event will be streamed live.

(02/04 13:46:38) Calum Traveler: and if you miss the stream, itll be posted to youtube sometime after,

(02/04 13:46:39) Doobes: I’m quite excited as this will technically be my third Mysterium and the first where I’ve presented something.

(02/04 13:46:56) Doobes: I hope to see you all there, whether in person or online! 🙂

(02/04 13:47:11) Doobes: Another bit of business is one that I’ve brought up quite a few times in the past:

(02/04 13:47:15) Doobes: Descent!

(02/04 13:47:27) Doobes: I’ve gotten back to work on it in the last couple of weeks (I know…finally!). My main focus has been the relighting of the section we have now…namely surface to just beyond the bottom of the shaft.

(02/04 13:47:29) My’key listens up

(02/04 13:47:48) Doobes: Given it’s based on Myst V’s version, the lighting is…shall we say…a bit too bright.

(02/04 13:48:04) Doobes: The changes I’ve been implementing (and hope to implement in the future) will give Descent a much more natural and more atmospheric lighting scheme.

(02/04 13:48:22) Doobes: Like I’ve said, a midpoint between Myst V and the demo…or at least that’s what I’m going for anyway!

(02/04 13:48:42) Doobes: After that…those lovely mechanics of the Great Shaft and all the wiring they’ll require.

(02/04 13:48:44) Doobes cringes

(02/04 13:48:58) Doobes: If all goes well, I *hope* to get a new version of Descent, one that will replace the old one, onto Minkata before the end of quarter 1, with a tentative release after the Q2 update.

(02/04 13:49:23) Doobes: If I’m really lucky, I’ll be able to announce it’s re-opening at Mysterium. 😀

(02/04 13:49:39) Doobes: Again, all this hinges on the work I get done soon and the testing needed up until the cutoff date for Q2, which is TBD right now.

(02/04 13:49:58) Doobes: So as always, be sure to temper expectations. 😀

(02/04 13:50:11) Doobes: Another change that should be coming *this* quarter will be the ability to delete fan Age Books via Chiso Preniv.

(02/04 13:50:29) Doobes: This will be possible due to some fancy coding from our friend Hazado and graphical assets provided by Tweek.

(02/04 13:50:48) Doobes: So those of you that want to redo an fan Age with puzzles (so far only Elonin and Tiam, but that will change soon), you’ll soon be able to do so!

(02/04 13:51:12) Doobes: Speaking of Hazado, he wanted me to mention that he’s also been working on squashing more bugs with the Gahreesen wall.

(02/04 13:51:28) Doobes: As such, he’s asking for as many testers as possible to come into the Minkata shard to give things a proper stress test. The more, the better.

(02/04 13:51:29) Hazado gets his hammer out

(02/04 13:51:39) Doobes: Hey, isn’t that Saavedro’s? 😛

(02/04 13:51:50) Calum Traveler: i was wondering where that went lol

(02/04 13:51:51) rarified gets his umbrella/bug shield out

(02/04 13:51:57) Doobes: The more time spent in testing getting things working better in Minkata, the less chance something may break when the fixes finally come to MOULa for Q1.

(02/04 13:52:00) Hazado: shhh, ill give it back before mysterium

(02/04 13:52:15) Doobes: That goes for everything else on Minkata right now as rarified mentioned. 😉

(02/04 13:52:32) Doobes: I’ll finish by mentioning that the Guild of Writers’ H’uru team has recently released version 0.14 of Blender for Korman!

(02/04 13:52:46) Doobes: To see what changed with this version, you can go to

(02/04 13:53:02) Doobes: For discussion on the latest version, drop into the forum thread on the GoW forums:

(02/04 13:53:05) Emor D’ni Lap: Applause to Hoikas!

(02/04 13:53:26) Doobes: Yes, our project lead, so to speak, plus other contributors. 🙂

(02/04 13:53:36) Doobes: Including, in small part, me!

(02/04 13:53:46) Doobes: And that’s all I’ve got for now. Questions?

(02/04 13:54:02) Calum Traveler: only one in queue is Kayara asking if your mysterium presentation will be recorded

(02/04 13:54:06) My’key is still processing

(02/04 13:54:14) Doobes: Should be, right Cal?

(02/04 13:54:17) Calum Traveler: and yes, it will be, as all streams at mysterium are, to be posted to youtube later

(02/04 13:54:26) Calum Traveler: nothing else in queue,

(02/04 13:54:39) Doobes: They may take awhile to post to YouTube though. Takes time to get ’em up there.

(02/04 13:54:46) Calum Traveler: oh yeah, its a slog of editing

(02/04 13:54:51) Calum Traveler: 3 days of streams lol

(02/04 13:54:54) Doobes: Hehehe, I don’t doubt it!

(02/04 13:54:59) Doobes: Any other questions?

(02/04 13:55:12) rarified: just fast forward the streams. Or cross them.

(02/04 13:55:16) Calum Traveler looks around… sees no hands…

(02/04 13:55:18) Doobes: Right then…thanks for listening!

(02/04 13:55:19) Doobes bows

(02/04 13:55:23) Calum Traveler: thank you, Doobes!

(02/04 13:55:26) Thumbs up from cjherkeless

(02/04 13:56:35) IwonK: I’ll be streaming my Wonky Talk on Friday, Feb 17 at 15 KI in the Guild of Cookies’ Hood (we sit by the heek table)

(02/04 13:56:49) IwonK: This month’s topic is cooking games!I have some titles in my mind already but if you know any interesting games I could talk about (and draw), feel free to throw them my way 🙂

(02/04 13:57:04) IwonK: join me on my Twitch channel (, there will be cookies 🙂

(02/04 13:57:12) rarified: Gingerbread model of Uru?

(02/04 13:57:17) IwonK: hmmmmm 😉

(02/04 13:57:23) IwonK: any questions? 😀

(02/04 13:57:34) Calum Traveler: none in queue.

(02/04 13:57:39) IwonK is checking something out

(02/04 13:57:47) Caeser: Don’t let Cookie Monter know you have cookies ready, they’ll be gone fast

(02/04 13:57:50) Hawu Meninp brushes the cookie crumbs out of his hair

(02/04 13:57:51) IwonK: ok 😀 that’s all from me 😀

(02/04 13:57:53) IwonK thanks you very much!

(02/04 13:57:56) IwonK bows

(02/04 13:58:03) Calum Traveler: our final speaker of the night!

(02/04 13:58:09) Calum Traveler beckons you

(02/04 13:58:09) Calum Traveler: shokhootahn Rehn

(02/04 13:58:20) My’key: yay

(02/04 13:58:28) Hawu Meninp salutes

(02/04 13:58:36) shokhootahn Rehn: As always, I have two separate announcements. One is for the D’ni Language Class and the other one is for r’Tayrtahn’s Story Night.

(02/04 13:59:01) shokhootahn Rehn: First, the language classes…

(02/04 13:59:23) shokhootahn Rehn: There are evening classes available on weekday evenings on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, starting at 20:00, 21:00 or 22:00 KI time, depending on the student’s schedule. There are daytime openings starting at either 12:00 KI time, 13:00 KI time, or 14:00 KI time, again, depending on the student’s schedule. Contact me by PM to set up a day and a time.

(02/04 13:59:43) shokhootahn Rehn: Though, daytime availability is subject to change with little or no notice.

(02/04 14:00:03) shokhootahn Rehn: If you are going to contact me by KI-mail, remember to inclue your KI #.

(02/04 14:00:24) shokhootahn Rehn: Also, I can be found on Discord at r’Tayrtahn#1317.

(02/04 14:00:46) shokhootahn Rehn: As always, current students can find last-minute updates to class times on the left-hand imager.

(02/04 14:01:46) shokhootahn Rehn: Currently, there is one student taking the classes, and has one more class to attend.

(02/04 14:02:00) shokhootahn Rehn: The Guild of Instructors’ Hood will be open and public unless a class is in session.

(02/04 14:02:14) shokhootahn Rehn: I have one request for visitors: Please do not post pellet points into the Hood imager…

(02/04 14:02:37) shokhootahn Rehn: One of my former students, Yutiel, is listed on that imager. I have refrained from posting pellets to maintain her name at the top as a form of memorial. It’s why I haven’t posted pellet points above 168345: it was to keep her name at the top of the list.

(02/04 14:02:54) shokhootahn Rehn: She was a great student and became a close friend in the process.

(02/04 14:03:05) shokhootahn Rehn: She was another explorer who left us way too soon.

(02/04 14:03:15) shokhootahn Rehn: Are there any questions?

(02/04 14:03:17) Claidi Song give r’Tay a hug

(02/04 14:03:22) Calum Traveler: none in queue

(02/04 14:03:26) shokhootahn Rehn: Moving on…

(02/04 14:03:54) shokhootahn Rehn: Thanks, Claidi :-))

(02/04 14:03:58) shokhootahn Rehn: The second announcement is about r’Taytahn’s Story Night.

(02/04 14:04:24) shokhootahn Rehn: About 15 weeks ago, we started the story of The Fall as told in Myst: The Book of Ti’Ana. Tonight, we continue that story which is part 13 of the sixteen-part series of stories of the Fall. It is story number 50 of 104 in the story cycle of the history of D’ni.

(02/04 14:04:48) shokhootahn Rehn: So, there is still plenty of history to go!

(02/04 14:05:07) shokhootahn Rehn: After that we will begin the story from Myst: The Book of Atrus, followed by the story from the game of Myst. Eventually, we will cover all of the books and games. as well as the three human attempts at the restoration of D’ni.

(02/04 14:05:45) shokhootahn Rehn: I am recording Story Night for (eventual) upload to my YouTube channel (r’Tayrtahn). I have reated an avatar for the purpose of recording. His name is “I’m a bot, do not message”. Please do not PM him during the story unless you want to see your message displayed for the entire internet. 😉

(02/04 14:06:33) shokhootahn Rehn: Currently, I am caught up with video compression. Unfortunately, I have a sizable backlog of videos to edit and upload. To my channel subscribers, please be patient; I am slowly working through it. 🙂

(02/04 14:06:50) shokhootahn Rehn: Story Night is held in the public neighborhood of Tsahno’s Hood every Saturday.

(02/04 14:06:59) 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.

(02/04 14:07:20) 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 15 minutes after the AGM, whichever is later.

(02/04 14:08:35) shokhootahn Rehn: Next week, 11 February, there will be no Story Night due to conflicts with the anniversary celebrations. As a result, I’ve chosen that weekend to be a travel weekend. 🙂

(02/04 14:09:03) shokhootahn Rehn: I also post changes on the left-hand imager in the hood.

(02/04 14:09:15) shokhootahn Rehn: Should I need to cancel one of the stories at the last minute, I will try to aprise one or two of my regular audience members of the situation so they can spread the news. 🙂

(02/04 14:09:29) shokhootahn Rehn: Minasunda is one of those members, as she runs the announcements channel on Discord.

(02/04 14:09:39) shokhootahn Rehn: The stories are told using voice so you will need to have your speakers or headsets on.

(02/04 14:09:57) 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. Though the sender is added to the Recents folder, it is still a good idea to add it to the body of the text. 🙂

(02/04 14:10:35) shokhootahn Rehn: We hope to see you there!

(02/04 14:10:38) shokhootahn Rehn: Any questions?

(02/04 14:10:46) Calum Traveler: none in queue

(02/04 14:10:50) shokhootahn Rehn thanks you very much!

(02/04 14:10:55) Isa =^.^=: clap

(02/04 14:11:00) Calum Traveler: thanks, shokhootahn Rehn!

(02/04 14:11:11) Calum Traveler: on that note, ill wrap it up for this month’s AGM

(02/04 14:11:28) Calum Traveler: as always, dont forget to donate to the cavcon fund if you want to help keep the lights on

(02/04 14:11:38) IwonK: see you later, everyone 🙂

(02/04 14:11:41) IwonK waves goodbye
