All Guilds Meeting – January 2022 – Cleansed Chatlog

(01/08 12:59:34)Calum Traveler: Alright then, the time is now 13:00 KI time, the day is January 8th, 2022, and this… is NOT Babylon 5. This is Kirel.

(01/08 12:59:48)Calum Traveler: 😛

(01/08 12:59:49)Korov’ev: In D’ni it’s Leevosahn 6, 9677, and the time is 17:03:24

(01/08 12:59:56)Jules Lavisham: …

(01/08 12:59:57)neurovac: startlog

(01/08 13:00:00)Calum Traveler: thank you, Korov,

(01/08 13:00:11)Jules Lavisham: Nope, not even mad. I’ll you have that one Cal.

(01/08 13:00:25)Calum Traveler: I’d like to welcome you all to Kirel,

(01/08 13:00:28)Calum Traveler: and to the New Year!

(01/08 13:00:45)Calum Traveler: i’ve got some general announcements to go over first,

(01/08 13:00:51)Calum Traveler: then we’ll get to our speakers

(01/08 13:00:56)Calum Traveler makes sure the IC light is off,

(01/08 13:01:01)Calum Traveler: first off: Mysterium News!

(01/08 13:01:09)Calum Traveler: Mysterium T Shirt Logo Submissions deadline reminder.

(01/08 13:01:17)Calum Traveler: If you submitted an entry for the Writing & Artwork table for 2020 or 2021, you will need to re-submit it for this year.

(01/08 13:01:28)Calum Traveler: Additionally, t-shirt design submissions are open until February 20. The two winning designers each receive a free t-shirt!

(01/08 13:01:48)Calum Traveler: if you havent submitted a design yet, time is tickin 😉

(01/08 13:01:54)Calum Traveler: Mysterium Covid:

(01/08 13:02:20)Calum Traveler grumbles at KI

(01/08 13:02:30)Calum Traveler: Staff are planning to require all attendees to be up to date with COVID-19 vaccinations. Most likely this will mean the CDC’s definition of fully vaccinated at the time of the event.

(01/08 13:02:40)Calum Traveler: Staff will provide more details closer to the convention on logistics such as how to provide proof of vaccination.

(01/08 13:02:54)Calum Traveler: Mysterium Registration:

(01/08 13:02:59)Calum Traveler: Until May 15, early bird registration will be available at two different rates:

(01/08 13:03:06)Calum Traveler: Standard ($25) will provide admission to the event and any swag we produce, such as pins.

(01/08 13:03:13)Calum Traveler: Premium ($40) includes everything from Standard as well as a Mysterium 2022 t-shirt.

(01/08 13:03:41)Calum Traveler: Staff have not yet chosen a tshirt design, so if youd prefer to wait youll still have plenty of time to purchase a registration once they announce that.

(01/08 13:03:51)Calum Traveler: If you are planning to submit a t-shirt design, Staff recommend holding off on registering, since your shirt will be free if your design is selected.

(01/08 13:03:56)Calum Traveler: further Details are available on the registration page.

(01/08 13:04:15)Calum Traveler gripes at KI not accepting copied quotation marks for whatever reason

(01/08 13:04:22)Calum Traveler: that does it for Mysterium News

(01/08 13:04:33)Calum Traveler turns on the IC Light

(01/08 13:04:36)Korov’ev: chat doesn’t like smart quotes

(01/08 13:04:42)Calum Traveler: yeah, smartquotes, dumb KI

(01/08 13:04:53)Calum Traveler: Now then, for your Monthly Cavern Recap!

(01/08 13:04:59)Calum Traveler: Incase you missed it, last month saw the release of the age of Tiam, restored by Ametist! You can find it in Chiso Preniv.

(01/08 13:05:08)Calum Traveler: Additionally, new to Chiso Preniv, is a book by Jules Lavisham- “The Painter.” Give it a read!

(01/08 13:05:33)Calum Traveler: we’ve ALSO restructured the arrangements of the Heritage Documents and the Activity In the Cavern books

(01/08 13:05:40)Calum Traveler: and given them some number stickers on the spines

(01/08 13:05:54)Calum Traveler: this should help in the confusion of picking up the same tome repeatedly ^^;

(01/08 13:06:03)Calum Traveler: (Ive done it myself. It’s much needed hehe)

(01/08 13:06:13)Calum Traveler: Serene has gotten some snowy overtones!

(01/08 13:06:18)Doobes: If not, I can rework things some more down the line. 😉

(01/08 13:06:30)Calum Traveler: those snow storms that were still a bit infrequent have now become fairly common

(01/08 13:06:33)Calum Traveler: dress warmly

(01/08 13:06:43)Rabbit starts to laugh

(01/08 13:06:47)Calum Traveler: in local news, We now have turned on the Kirel Podium- the plan is to get new audio recordings out once every quarter to serve as a recap of recent events.

(01/08 13:06:55)ScottMiller: there are fire flies, too!

(01/08 13:06:56)Calum Traveler: For now, you can play two audio tracks: one covering the last few months of activity, recorded by Tyion, and one ancient historical relic from many years ago.

(01/08 13:07:07)Calum Traveler: This older Audio Track is from Doctor Watson, of the DRC, and may sound familiar to those of you who came to Kirel after the closure of the Cavern in 2004.

(01/08 13:07:29)Calum Traveler: we plan on having translations of the newer audio tracks available in the future

(01/08 13:07:41)ShilohOBrien pours out a drink for Dr. Watson.

(01/08 13:07:44)Calum Traveler: New Clothing Items have graced the Relto Wardrobe! In addition, some interesting items have cropped up in other places. You may find all of these in thematically appropriate ways.

(01/08 13:07:55)Calum Traveler glances at all the Atrus Robe wearers…

(01/08 13:08:08)Calum Traveler: of course, a lot of you have already found one of those it seems 😛

(01/08 13:08:14)ShilohOBrien: Go Age Hermits!!!

(01/08 13:08:18)Doobes: What? I always wear this. You didn’t notice? 😛

(01/08 13:08:23)Calum Traveler: 😛

(01/08 13:08:25)Calum Traveler: A reminder: we have Discussion Forums for the restoration which can be found here

(01/08 13:08:30)Calum Traveler:

(01/08 13:08:38)Calum Traveler: Looking Forwards to the Future:

(01/08 13:08:47)Calum Traveler: Testing on the Gahreesen Wall began last night, with our first round of major testing. There’s still many mechanical issues to sort out, but we hope to have them figured out sooner rather than later.

(01/08 13:09:02)Calum Traveler checks over notes one last time…

(01/08 13:09:08)Calum Traveler: alright,

(01/08 13:09:12)Calum Traveler turns off IC light

(01/08 13:09:16)Calum Traveler: time for some OOC remarks:

(01/08 13:09:37)Calum Traveler: Clothing Bugs:

(01/08 13:09:42)Calum Traveler: Those of you who have collected the Er’cana Field Vest backpack in the past may have noticed it’s sudden replacement by a new Backpack item. This incident is a bug, as the new backpack was not meant to be released at this time, and its arrival also had a side-effect of displacing Zandi’s Shirt from the Relto wardrobe if it was previously collected.

(01/08 13:09:49)Ro”Jethhe waves hello

(01/08 13:09:59)Calum Traveler: If you are missing the shirt and the old field vest from your wardrobes, please go Recollect the items from their original locations- if you cannot find them, please contact me and I will poke Chogon to make them active again.

(01/08 13:10:17)Calum Traveler: they should still be active though, if you havent recollected them

(01/08 13:10:28)Calum Traveler: If you did not have either of these items before the appearance of Backpack2, you’re likely to have not gotten the new packpack, and thus you’re free to ignore this section.

(01/08 13:10:37)Calum Traveler: …

(01/08 13:10:40)Calum Traveler: packpack, whatever

(01/08 13:10:47)Calum Traveler: We are aware of some strange issues with female hair and head accessories, but have been unable to track down the root triggers as of yet.

(01/08 13:10:51)Christian Walther is missing the new backpack 🙁

(01/08 13:11:04)judyg: (heh heh..pack pack)

(01/08 13:11:04)Calum Traveler: the backpack will be properly released later down the road

(01/08 13:11:09)Calum Traveler: it was not meant to be released at this time

(01/08 13:11:16)Thumbs up from Christian Walther

(01/08 13:11:18)Ro”Jethhe is worried his gray roots are showing.

(01/08 13:11:25)Calum Traveler: feel free to wear it if you have it, but be aware it’s not meant to be active at this time

(01/08 13:11:34)Calum Traveler: we cant exactly take it back considering we dont know why it triggered to begin with.

(01/08 13:11:36)ShilohOBrien: May we request some exotic female hairstyles? Like bald or mohak?

(01/08 13:11:55)Ro”Jethhe says how about the old Beehive

(01/08 13:11:56)Calum Traveler: that is… outside my area of expertise

(01/08 13:12:05)Calum Traveler: finally,

(01/08 13:12:07)Calum Traveler: Render Distance issues: some new clothing items have bizzare views at a distance: there is a fix currently in testing.

(01/08 13:12:08)ShilohOBrien: Well fudge!

(01/08 13:12:08)ScottMiller cringes

(01/08 13:12:16)Zeke365: please refain from asking questions till the end

(01/08 13:12:24)Calum Traveler: Enjoy your kite-legs Atrus Pants when sitting for now 😛

(01/08 13:12:31)Doobes: They can certainly be requested, but whether they can be implemented or not is another story…mostly technical stuff.

(01/08 13:12:46)Calum Traveler: alright, that does it for all of my stuff,

(01/08 13:13:13)Kong likes the beehive idea, with big front teeth

(01/08 13:13:15)Calum Traveler: 🙂 as a reminder of the rules, please keep questions and chatter to a minimum while the speakers are talking,

(01/08 13:13:24)Calum Traveler: questions may be skipped if we’re running low on time

(01/08 13:13:36)Calum Traveler: first up: MINASUNDA!

(01/08 13:14:06)TikiBear: Di VA DI Va Di Va!

(01/08 13:14:08)Minasunda: After we have hopefully all started the year 2022 healthy and safe, it is not long until the 12th MOULa anniversary.

(01/08 13:14:20)Minasunda: We’ll start the festival week on January 6th with Ghaelen’s opening ceremony.

(01/08 13:14:21)Kong: hork

(01/08 13:14:33)Minasunda: Some special events are already planned – in addition to the regular ones. including a fantastic Nulp Dance Show in Gahreesen.

(01/08 13:14:35)IwonK: January?

(01/08 13:14:45)Minasunda: febraur

(01/08 13:14:45)ShilohOBrien: Wut?

(01/08 13:14:52)Prad: February

(01/08 13:14:57)Calum Traveler: ^^ February 6th, i believe she meant. heh.

(01/08 13:15:15)Minasunda: I don’t want to list everything now, it would take too long. I will go into more detail on the individual events at the February AGM. Until then we have the final event plan.

(01/08 13:15:16)ShilohOBrien: Let’s do the time warp again…

(01/08 13:15:32)Minasunda: I sincerely hope – looking at the OpenUru people 😀 – that the next big update comes NOT before the festival week – please please :))

(01/08 13:15:46)Rabbit starts to laugh

(01/08 13:15:47)rarified cringes

(01/08 13:15:48)Minasunda: You can find the preliminary event schedule on Discord on the MOULa event server. The calendar is pinned there under #anniversary-planning.

(01/08 13:16:03)Minasunda: How do you find the server? You can simply go to There you will find a button “Discord” in the header

(01/08 13:16:16)Minasunda: As soon as the final plan is set, I will publish it on the Cyan server and on Facebook too.

(01/08 13:16:30)Minasunda: If you are planning an event, please let me know so I can add it to the schedule.

(01/08 13:16:43)Minasunda: That was it from me. Any questions ?

(01/08 13:17:05)Calum Traveler: Any events for this month you have to share?

(01/08 13:17:27)Minasunda: only the regular ones

(01/08 13:17:31)Calum Traveler: aight then,

(01/08 13:17:34)Minasunda: no special events

(01/08 13:17:36)Ro”Jethhe: Valentine’s Day is coming up 14 Feb.

(01/08 13:17:43)Calum Traveler: if there are no questions for Mina, we’ll move onto the next speaker 🙂

(01/08 13:17:44)Minasunda: Then I make room for the next speaker. Thank you. :))

(01/08 13:17:49)Calum Traveler: thank you mina!

(01/08 13:18:07)shokhootahn Rehn leans left

(01/08 13:18:09)Minasunda leans right

(01/08 13:18:09)Korov’ev: Rand & Ryan’s birthday is on the 17, it seems

(01/08 13:18:15)Calum Traveler: next up, we have our good friend, Doobes!

(01/08 13:18:19)Calum Traveler beckons you

(01/08 13:18:28)Ro”Jethhe: DOOOOOOBES!!!

(01/08 13:18:33)Doobes waves hello

(01/08 13:18:39)Calum Traveler makes sure the IC light is firmly off.

(01/08 13:18:39)Doobes: Hey there!

(01/08 13:18:45)Doobes: Just wanted to stop in to give you all an update.

(01/08 13:19:04)Doobes: Descent has taken a bit of a back seat for the time being (it’s not completely dead though!), but fear not…I’m working on bringing other familiar content to MOULa.

(01/08 13:19:21)Doobes: Namely, the rest of the Myst V Age lineup! That’s Tahgira, Todelmer, Noloben, Laki’ahn, and Direbo!

(01/08 13:19:39)Ro”Jethhe: Woo Woo

(01/08 13:19:40)Boywhith: Wow!

(01/08 13:19:47)Doobes: I’ve mentioned before that I’ve wanted to convert the Myst V content for use here (Cyan permitting), and I’ve come up with a hopefully viable path to bypass all the Bahro magic stuff and use traditional Linking Methods to see all the sights in each Age!

(01/08 13:20:08)Doobes: (if you’ve played them before, you probably know of the hard-to-reach places to which I refer)

(01/08 13:20:24)Doobes: Reworking these Ages into another functional journey won’t be easy, but I’m excited to give it a try.

(01/08 13:20:39)Thumbs up from Rabbit

(01/08 13:20:42)Doobes: Again, this will all hinge on if Cyan gives their approval. They will have an opportunity to see the converted content first and give their thoughts.

(01/08 13:20:53)Doobes: I’ll introduce some ideas of my own, but as it is their content, I will go by their direction, if any.

(01/08 13:21:07)Doobes: I’m hoping that, by scrubbing the Myst V Bahro and story content as they did with K’veer, it’ll get their seal of approval and bring these Ages back home to URU…hopefully with a few new twists to make them a different experience overall.

(01/08 13:21:27)judyg: nice!!!!

(01/08 13:21:37)Calum Traveler: question from Theo: Would these become a spoiler for Myst V?

(01/08 13:22:20)Doobes: Probably not. The focus will be more on the Ages themselves.

(01/08 13:23:03)Doobes: Noloben won’t be as detail-heavy about the Bahro given that, as far as I can tell, what we saw was only a small piece of the Age.

(01/08 13:23:34)Doobes: As far as the events of Myst V, they may be alluded to, but only a touch.

(01/08 13:23:49)Calum Traveler: question from shohootahn Rehn: Will the puzzles be the same, or will there be new ones?

(01/08 13:24:18)Doobes: There will be both familiar and new in each of these Ages. Obviously, anything having to do with the Bahro will be gone.

(01/08 13:24:34)shokhootahn Rehn nods

(01/08 13:24:41)Doobes: As I said though, I’ve come up with a way to get to the places they took us to in those Ages.

(01/08 13:25:00)Doobes: Anyway…

(01/08 13:25:04)Doobes: Secondly, unrelated to that, I’ll soon be re-recording some lines for a particular project that’s also coming here to MOULa, hopefully very soon! I won’t say exactly what it is, but if you’ve been in The Open Cave shard, you may know already. 😉

(01/08 13:25:25)Calum Traveler: question from Massygo: How about Esher?

(01/08 13:25:41)Boywhith: And… everybody here has already played Myst V, I presume???

(01/08 13:25:48)judyg: escher died (sniffle)

(01/08 13:25:59)Dormant Heights: we had enough time i think

(01/08 13:26:03)Doobes: No Esher. Canonically, without getting too spoilery…he’s not there anymore. 😉

(01/08 13:26:30)Theo: I have not played Myst V.

(01/08 13:26:35)Korov’ev: … but is he??

(01/08 13:26:42)Doobes: His influence will still be seen in Noloben though, for obvious reasons.

(01/08 13:26:52)judyg: R I P D O S

(01/08 13:26:53)Doobes cringes

(01/08 13:27:00)Doobes: And finally, on a more somber note, I wanted to mention that entries for both Grandbad and Battlebotsboy, who both passed away near the end of last year, will soon be added to the Veelay journals. The update is working its way through Minkata at this time and will hopefully be on MOULa ASAP.

(01/08 13:27:21)Calum Traveler: re: Esher. the DRC said he’d been gone for months way back in early 2007,

(01/08 13:27:38)judyg: Grandbad? no! i didn’t know

(01/08 13:27:38)Calum Traveler: or, atleast, the man we assume to be esher was gone for several months,

(01/08 13:27:43)Doobes: That’s all I’ve got for now. I hope I’ve whetted your appetites sufficiently.

(01/08 13:27:43)<sniffle> thoekenem is sad

(01/08 13:27:50)Doobes: Keep donating to that CAVCON and we’ll keep cooking up some more fun for y’all.

(01/08 13:27:54)Calum Traveler: oh, before i let you go, Doobes,

(01/08 13:28:00)Calum Traveler: Rabbit prompted a question I forgot to answer earlier. Why don’t invites in Tiam work? It’s due to an issue with the Nexus we’ll be sorting out in the future.

(01/08 13:28:01)Doobes:

(01/08 13:28:04)Boywhith: Oh… that is sad to hear…

(01/08 13:28:12)Calum Traveler: care to explain a bit?

(01/08 13:28:36)Doobes: Technically, Tiam needs a Linking Panel in the Nexus. Right now, if one were to open a Tiam Book in there, it comes up as…the Nexus panel. O_O

(01/08 13:29:03)Doobes: We’re hoping that, next update, that will be properly fixed and you’ll be able to Link to Tiam via the Nexus as well. Share invites too.

(01/08 13:29:36)Doobes: I’ll be working with Deledrius on this in the coming weeks, so just be patient. For now, only the Book in Chiso will do the trick.

(01/08 13:29:37)Cpt.Jericho: At least you can share the book in chiso

(01/08 13:29:58)Rabbit nods her head

(01/08 13:30:10)Doobes: Yeah, again, sorry for the inconvenience. We’ll try to time a Nexus update with new personal instanced Ages in the future.

(01/08 13:30:16)Doobes: Anything else?

(01/08 13:30:45)Doobes: OK. Thanks for your time!

(01/08 13:30:46)Calum Traveler: no questions? aight

(01/08 13:30:47)Doobes bows

(01/08 13:30:50)Calum Traveler: thanks for talking, Doobes!

(01/08 13:31:12)Calum Traveler: a question from Kong re: Donation money

(01/08 13:31:19)Calum Traveler: we explorers working on the team do not get any donations.

(01/08 13:31:27)Claidi Song starts to laugh

(01/08 13:31:30)Calum Traveler: the money that goes into CavCon goes directly to Cyan

(01/08 13:31:31)Doobes: No, that goes solely to MOULa server costs.

(01/08 13:31:56)Calum Traveler: anything Chogon does on the server would be paid, but our work is strictly volunteer.

(01/08 13:31:57)Doobes: Any left over is stored for a “rainy day”.

(01/08 13:32:20)Calum Traveler: CavCon explicitly is for keeping the lights on

(01/08 13:32:29)Calum Traveler: 😉

(01/08 13:32:34)Calum Traveler: alright, next on the list…

(01/08 13:32:43)Calum Traveler: rarified? you got anything?

(01/08 13:32:44)Doobes: And to pay for the aforementioned server costs and Chogon time when we are testing on the staging server before MOULa.

(01/08 13:33:05)rarified: Just a quickie… Shorah and I’ll stay here 😀

(01/08 13:33:10)Calum Traveler: 🙂

(01/08 13:33:19)Calum Traveler: shorah, indeed, heh

(01/08 13:33:19)Eternal Seeker: bah

(01/08 13:33:24)Doobes: Aw man…you mean I didn’t have to get up? 😛

(01/08 13:33:36)rarified: After the rush last month to get the update out, I (and I hope the contributors) needed

(01/08 13:33:57)Poutrew: Then we wouldn’t have anyone to makeuncomfortable by staring at them… 🙂

(01/08 13:34:04)rarified: some rest. And while they’re resting (snicker) I’ve been working on a

(01/08 13:34:21)rarified: task that’s been on the to-do- list for years; an update to the server hosting

(01/08 13:34:31)Rabbit: uh oh

(01/08 13:34:33)rarified: Minkata shards and the OU tools and repositories.

(01/08 13:34:55)rarified: It’s taken longer than I hoped, but the end is in sight.

(01/08 13:35:12)rarified: Once that’s done the flood gates will open to updates again

(01/08 13:35:21)Rabbit cringes

(01/08 13:35:32)rarified: and I’ll be able to pick up on client modernization work as well.

(01/08 13:35:57)rarified: So there may not be as many changes the next quarter as could have

(01/08 13:35:57)Rabbit: and the last of the marker games bites the dust?

(01/08 13:36:15)rarified: been, but things will be primed for better from this point forward.

(01/08 13:36:23)rarified: That’s it from OU.

(01/08 13:36:30)Calum Traveler: thanks, rarified 🙂

(01/08 13:36:46)Calum Traveler: rabbit, i dont believe marker game adjustments are on our to-do list for this cycle,

(01/08 13:37:14)Ro”Jethhe misses seeing the Horse with no name in Minkata.

(01/08 13:37:24)Calum Traveler: we’re very heistant about adjusting things in the backend due to not wanting to break older games, though, at some point that’s probably going to be inevitable.

(01/08 13:37:42)Calum Traveler: to clarify: we have NOT tampered or touched Marker Game code

(01/08 13:37:51)Calum Traveler: we’ve not disabled or ‘destroyed’ old games

(01/08 13:37:53)Emor D’ni Lap applauds rarified’s work…and it IS work!

(01/08 13:37:59)Ro”Jethhe: MOULa no longer runs on Winows XP 🙁

(01/08 13:38:00)ScottMiller: I’ve got a few marker games that are no longer functional, they simply say “loading” can’t play them or delete them…

(01/08 13:38:14)Calum Traveler: the Loading issue is likely due to an issue with duplicated entries

(01/08 13:38:18)judyg: indeed

(01/08 13:38:21)Emor D’ni Lap applauds rarified’s work…and it IS *work*!!!

(01/08 13:38:21)judyg: me too

(01/08 13:38:33)ShilohOBrien: what is the status on the lake alge?

(01/08 13:38:40)judyg: it’s ok.

(01/08 13:38:43)Calum Traveler: that said, if the games are becoming unplayable en-mass, we may need to take a look at that sooner than later

(01/08 13:38:54)Ro”Jethhe thanks you

(01/08 13:38:56)Thumbs up from Rabbit

(01/08 13:39:00)Calum Traveler: lake algae is proceeding apace, but i’m not going to put any estimates on it

(01/08 13:39:11)Calum Traveler: ive, understandably, been very distracted due to surface matters the last few months

(01/08 13:39:22)Calum Traveler: havent been able to keep tabs on things

(01/08 13:39:27)ShilohOBrien will keep baking and dropping pellets.

(01/08 13:39:35)Calum Traveler: i may have more news in Febuary

(01/08 13:39:36)judyg: s’ok cal

(01/08 13:39:41)IwonK passes around pellet cookies

(01/08 13:39:47)Calum Traveler checks notes…

(01/08 13:39:48)Rabbit: thank Calum

(01/08 13:39:55)Doobes: Everyone’s busy that time of year. 😉

(01/08 13:40:02)Calum Traveler: okay, before i call the next speaker

(01/08 13:40:10)Calum Traveler: are there any other pressing concerns folks want addressed?

(01/08 13:40:22)judyg: yes!

(01/08 13:40:23)Rabbit: cure for Omicron

(01/08 13:40:27)Rabbit starts to laugh

(01/08 13:40:28)Calum Traveler: beyond surface matters

(01/08 13:40:38)judyg: wardrobe! or should i wait til later

(01/08 13:40:41)judyg: i can

(01/08 13:40:42)Doobes: Hoo boy. That’s a bit out of our pay rate, Rabbit. If only!

(01/08 13:40:46)Calum Traveler: i have your suggestions, judy 😉

(01/08 13:41:03)judyg: thank you Cal!

(01/08 13:41:18)Calum Traveler: clothing is a tricky beast, and we may be able to whip something up, but don’t be surprised if it takes some time to get right.

(01/08 13:41:35)Calum Traveler: texturing even these new items

(01/08 13:41:37)Calum Traveler taps jacket

(01/08 13:41:41)Calum Traveler: took a lot of trial and error

(01/08 13:41:47)Poutrew: as long as we dont all suddenly appear in our skivvies… 🙂

(01/08 13:41:52)Calum Traveler: some clothing items are… not very well UV meshed >>;

(01/08 13:41:52)Boywhith: I want to have a desent swimshort when I have to swim…

(01/08 13:41:54)judyg: it’s ok! just a little dress for the ladies, and suits and ties for the guys

(01/08 13:41:59)Rabbit: thanks for your effort Calum

(01/08 13:42:15)Sleeper Jan: scarf for all

(01/08 13:42:16)Calum Traveler: right then, okay, ill call up our next speaker

(01/08 13:42:21)Rabbit doesn’t WEAR ‘little dresses’

(01/08 13:42:22)Ro”Jethhe: Like a novel Calum, keep the skirts short.

(01/08 13:42:23)Calum Traveler: Christopher Therburg

(01/08 13:42:26)judyg: thank you for your consideration

(01/08 13:42:27)Christopher Therburg: It’s an honor for me.

(01/08 13:42:29)Calum Traveler beckons you

(01/08 13:42:43)Calum Traveler turns on the IC Lamp!

(01/08 13:42:49)Christopher Therburg: Shorah everyone.

(01/08 13:43:06)Ro”Jethhe: Shorah Chris

(01/08 13:43:22)philipgr: Shorah Chris

(01/08 13:43:56)Christopher Therburg: It’s about the Fall of D’ni Memorial

(01/08 13:45:07)Christopher Therburg: It has been moved from Ae’gura to an unknown small island in the cavern.

(01/08 13:45:22)Christopher Therburg: You are now wondering why?

(01/08 13:45:33)Ro”Jethhe: the small courtyard over looking the Canyon?

(01/08 13:45:35)CrimsonGuy wonders why

(01/08 13:45:40)Christopher Therburg: Well, during a discussion with the restoration team, we asked ourselves where the memorial should be better placed.

(01/08 13:46:07)Christopher Therburg looks at Calum directly

(01/08 13:46:12)Calum Traveler chuckles nervously

(01/08 13:46:24)Calum Traveler: yes, well, we’d had a few concerns from the community at large,

(01/08 13:46:29)Christopher Therburg: Some wanted to keep the memorial in Ae’gura, as it was foreseen.

(01/08 13:46:35)Ro”Jethhe: yes, anywhere besides a dark and smelly bar.

(01/08 13:47:00)Christopher Therburg: But there were also many voices that the memorial should better be located somewhere else in the cavern because some believed that Ae’gura was not the right place for it.

(01/08 13:47:09)Calum Traveler: (different memorial, Ro’)

(01/08 13:47:15)Ro”Jethhe thanks you

(01/08 13:47:22)Sleeper Jan: ‘some’

(01/08 13:47:28)Rabbit starts to laugh

(01/08 13:47:31)Sleeper Jan: everyone has a different idea

(01/08 13:47:35)Ro”Jethhe shrugs

(01/08 13:47:35)Sleeper Jan: best to not ask

(01/08 13:47:54)Christopher Therburg: After some thought and pondering, I decided that the memorial would be better on the island I recently discovered.

(01/08 13:48:12)Christopher Therburg: You are now wondering what kind of island that is?

(01/08 13:48:28)Christopher Therburg: It’s a small stalagmite island in the cavern that naturally fractured sometime after the Fall of D’ni. You can still see the remains of the upper part, which is partly underwater.

(01/08 13:49:01)Emor D’ni Lap: and we’re wondering ‘how do you get there’???

(01/08 13:49:23)Rabbit: row row row your boat?

(01/08 13:49:33)Christopher Therburg: I haveWell with a boat.

(01/08 13:49:33)Prad: call a bahro taxi?

(01/08 13:49:54)Christopher Therburg: I have already started building the small harbor for a future boat transport, stairs, and the platform for the memorial on the broken part of the island.

(01/08 13:49:55)philipgr: The COD ferry

(01/08 13:49:59)Kong: On Zed’s chopper?

(01/08 13:50:17)Ro”Jethhe: Call an Uber

(01/08 13:50:19)CrimsonGuy: ask Shroomie for a lift?

(01/08 13:50:20)Ro”Jethhe: ?

(01/08 13:50:29)Christopher Therburg: Everything is based on the D’ni architectural style.

(01/08 13:50:57)Rabbit: COD ferry is good idea

(01/08 13:50:58)Calum Traveler: a reminder, please keep the chatter to a minimum.

(01/08 13:51:05)Christopher Therburg: You know, Im something of an architect myself.

(01/08 13:51:09)Rabbit zips lip

(01/08 13:51:19)Christopher Therburg: (Sorry for that Spider-Man reference.)

(01/08 13:51:38)Kong laughs

(01/08 13:51:43)Christopher Therburg: But maybe I could need some help for the island.

(01/08 13:52:01)Christopher Therburg: If it’s needed.

(01/08 13:52:30)Christopher Therburg: There will be also a Nexus terminal on the harbor like in Ae’gura on the Ferry Terminal.

(01/08 13:53:38)Christopher Therburg: I think the island is better than that the memorial is in Ae’gura.

(01/08 13:54:29)Christopher Therburg: Because you have a great around view of D’ni and during the fall, the whole D’ni City and cavern was affected and not just only Ae’gura.

(01/08 13:55:14)Christopher Therburg: In addition, we had not yet had a around view of D’ni, just that smaller view in Bevin and Kirel. I also wanted other D’ni places to be discovered.

(01/08 13:55:36)Christopher Therburg: So much for the status of my project. Do you have any questions?

(01/08 13:55:41)Calum Traveler: one so far

(01/08 13:55:48)Calum Traveler: Boywhith asks: This sounds like a massive project, when will it be finished?

(01/08 13:56:29)Christopher Therburg: The island will be opened at the anniversary day of the Fall of D’ni.

(01/08 13:57:24)Boywhith: Thanks! When is that?

(01/08 13:57:31)Ro”Jethhe: Build a toll bridge and that will help with CavCon.

(01/08 13:57:39)Korov’ev: July 12

(01/08 13:57:55)Christopher Therburg: Thanks Korov.

(01/08 13:58:12)Calum Traveler: any more questions?

(01/08 13:58:26)Calum Traveler: if no, we’re short on time

(01/08 13:58:35)Calum Traveler: thank you Christopher Therburg!

(01/08 13:58:37)Christopher Therburg bows

(01/08 13:58:52)Calum Traveler: final speaker for the evening: R’tay/shokhootahn rehn ?

(01/08 13:58:58)Calum Traveler: you here?

(01/08 13:59:06)Korov’ev: *ahem*

(01/08 13:59:12)Calum Traveler: OH!

(01/08 13:59:16)Calum Traveler: i did forget krov

(01/08 13:59:17)Calum Traveler: korov

(01/08 13:59:24)Calum Traveler: after rehn then 🙂

(01/08 13:59:33)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.

(01/08 13:59:44)Doobes: One does not just forget Kor. Hehehe.

(01/08 13:59:44)shokhootahn Rehn: First, the language classes…

(01/08 13:59:46)Doobes shuts up now

(01/08 13:59:55)Calum Traveler: (sorry, hectic schedule)

(01/08 14:00:20)shokhootahn Rehn: We need a Viggo Mortensen meme for that, Doobes. 😉

(01/08 14:00:30)shokhootahn Rehn: There are evening classes available on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, starting at 20:00, 21:00 or 22:00 KI time, depending on the student’s schedule. There are daytime openings Monday through Friday, starting at either 12:00 KI time, 13:00 KI time, or 14:00 KI time, depending on the student’s schedule. Contact me by PM to set up a day and a time.

(01/08 14:00:33)Doobes: My thoughts exactly.

(01/08 14:00:40)shokhootahn Rehn: Though, daytime availability is subject to change with little or no notice.

(01/08 14:00:55)Christopher Therburg: Well I did the Norman Osborn meme.

(01/08 14:01:12)shokhootahn Rehn: As always, current students can find last-minute updates to class times on the left-hand imager.

(01/08 14:01:48)shokhootahn Rehn: The Guild of Instructors’ Hood will be open and public unless a class is in session.

(01/08 14:01:56)shokhootahn Rehn: Are there any questions?

(01/08 14:02:04)giovanni4: Buona sera a tutti

(01/08 14:02:18)shokhootahn Rehn: Moving on…

(01/08 14:02:26)shokhootahn Rehn: The second announcement is about r’Taytahn’s Story Night.

(01/08 14:03:09)shokhootahn Rehn: Story Night – Europe is, currently, a few stories ahead of original Story Night.

(01/08 14:03:32)shokhootahn Rehn: Today, Story Night – Europe begins the history of D’ni… from the begining! The story will begin with the D’ni creation myth, so, it will be from the *very* begining! lol

(01/08 14:03:58)shokhootahn Rehn: Original Story Night is continuing with the bi-annual Bahro Glyph Tour.

(01/08 14:04:09)shokhootahn Rehn: For original Story Night, we will meet in Mir-o-Bot’s Hood. His KI# is 32319 If he is not on your buddies list, type: /addbuddy 32319

(01/08 14:04:26)shokhootahn Rehn: Once he is in your buddies list, click his name and type: link

(01/08 14:04:36)shokhootahn Rehn: Some glyphs have explanations while others just generate more questions.

(01/08 14:04:53)shokhootahn Rehn: After that… original Story Night will begin, again!

(01/08 14:05:25)shokhootahn Rehn: I am back to recording Story Night for upload to my YouTube channel (r’Tayrtahn). Please do not PM me during the story unless you want to see your message displayed for the entire internet. 😉

(01/08 14:05:45)shokhootahn Rehn: Currently, I have a sizable backlog of videos to compress so there has been a lag in getting them uploaded. To my channel subscribers, please be patient. 🙂

(01/08 14:05:47)Rabbit: oooooh

(01/08 14:06:04)shokhootahn Rehn: Story Night is held in the public neighborhood of Tsahno’s Hood every Saturday (except as above).

(01/08 14:06:20)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.

(01/08 14:06:28)Rabbit suggests Handbrake

(01/08 14:06:37)shokhootahn Rehn: (except for the tour)

(01/08 14:06:55)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.

(01/08 14:07:13)shokhootahn Rehn: I also post changes on the left-hand imager in the hood.

(01/08 14:07:22)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. 🙂

(01/08 14:07:34)shokhootahn Rehn: The stories are told using voice so you will need to have your speakers or headsets on.

(01/08 14:07:56)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.

(01/08 14:08:37)shokhootahn Rehn: YOU *MUST* INCLUDE YOUR KI NUMBER IN THE BODY OF THE MAIL TO BE ADDED! (caps for emphasis, not for shouting)

(01/08 14:08:46)shokhootahn Rehn: Some have sent messages to be added but have not included their KI number so they were unable to be added.

(01/08 14:08:56)shokhootahn Rehn: We hope to see you there!

(01/08 14:09:02)shokhootahn Rehn: Any questions?

(01/08 14:09:02)Calum Traveler: any questions?

(01/08 14:09:20)Calum Traveler: no? ok! thank you shokhootahn Rehn!

(01/08 14:09:24)shokhootahn Rehn: Thank you!

(01/08 14:09:27)shokhootahn Rehn thanks you very much!

(01/08 14:09:32)Calum Traveler: finally, Korov’ev!

(01/08 14:09:36)Kong: Buona sera a coloro che si trovano nelle terre della sera, che non sono nelle terre del giorno, ne da qualche parte nel mezzo, ma solo in quella piccola zona di Riccioli d oro delle terre della buona sera

(01/08 14:09:41)Calum Traveler: (and im sorry, i thought I covered you already XD)

(01/08 14:09:52)Doobes: Koooooooor!

(01/08 14:09:54)Korov’ev waves hello

(01/08 14:10:02)Korov’ev: I bring you the usual reminders for the Tours 🙂

(01/08 14:10:11)Korov’ev: First, the Cavern Tour … which this month was today, right before this meeting!

(01/08 14:10:15)Korov’ev: oops!

(01/08 14:10:27)Korov’ev: The host, Larry LeDeay, uses his Twitch channel for the presentation, so you will need to keep a browser or the app open in the background:

(01/08 14:10:34)Korov’ev: So if you missed it, you can rewatch 😉

(01/08 14:10:47)Korov’ev: Videos will be available for two weeks after the tour. The stream is simulcasted on Facebook and Youtube.

(01/08 14:10:56)Korov’ev: Mir-o-Bot (KI# 32319) is usually employed for special effects and long-distance travel (and to avoid stairs).

(01/08 14:11:13)Korov’ev: Next is the usual update on the Fan Age Expeditions in Deep Island…

(01/08 14:11:21)Korov’ev: In December we visited some fairly complex ages like Jo’nae, Jo’nae Hood, Takla Ma’kan, and investigated the mysteries of Sonavio.

(01/08 14:11:33)Korov’ev: In January, the plan is to visit the entries of the first Rapid Age Development contest: Abysos, a couple of Ahra Pahts shells and Zephyr Cove;

(01/08 14:11:42)Korov’ev: then a few assorted ages: Aerie, TINA, Kahntinoy, Fena Barel (which is a summary of fan-run ‘episodes’ held in 2008);

(01/08 14:11:50)Korov’ev: we’ll conclude the month with a few works by Nadnerb and by Andy Legate.

(01/08 14:12:00)Korov’ev: The expeditions are on Sunday at 11:00 KIT, starting in the shard Hood (which you can reach quickly using “/hood”).

(01/08 14:12:07)Korov’ev: There’s also an (uncommented) stream:

(01/08 14:12:26)Korov’ev: Sometimes we have a Wall match in my Gahreesen afterwards 🙂

(01/08 14:12:35)Korov’ev bows

(01/08 14:12:35)Korov’ev: And that’s all I got!

(01/08 14:12:43)Korov’ev: Questions?

(01/08 14:12:48)Emor D’ni Lap applauds Korov’ev

(01/08 14:12:57)judyg: hold on! shard hood?

(01/08 14:13:06)judyg: that’s a new one for me

(01/08 14:13:15)Korov’ev: Yep, Deep Island only has one Hood

(01/08 14:13:15)Emor D’ni Lap: yes, the Deep Island shard’s ‘hood

(01/08 14:13:21)judyg: is this new shard i have to download?

(01/08 14:13:34)Korov’ev: it’s based on the offline game

(01/08 14:13:34)judyg: ok

(01/08 14:13:42)judyg: i have deep island

(01/08 14:13:47)judyg: whew!

(01/08 14:13:50)Korov’ev: heh

(01/08 14:13:52)Doobes: So technically, DI has Bevin. 😛

(01/08 14:14:00)Poutrew: where is deep island at?

(01/08 14:14:20)Korov’ev: the Guild of Writers forums has instructions

(01/08 14:14:36)Doobes: You’ll need a purchased copy of URU: Complete Chronicles too.

(01/08 14:14:40)Ro”Jethhe: Isn’t Deep Island located in Germany?

(01/08 14:14:50)Minasunda starts to laugh

(01/08 14:14:56)Korov’ev: you can look here for the set up:

(01/08 14:15:04)Christian Walther:

(01/08 14:15:09)Korov’ev: that too!

(01/08 14:15:36)Korov’ev: well, the admin is German, at least 🙂

(01/08 14:15:58)Doobes: Good ol’ diafero. 🙂

(01/08 14:16:15)Claidi Song: I picture something like the ‘lost city of Atlantis’ when I hear Deep Island

(01/08 14:16:37)Dormant Heights: atlantis is located in germany? it keeps getting better 😉

(01/08 14:16:39)Calum Traveler: any more questions?

(01/08 14:16:40)shokhootahn Rehn: lol@Claidi

(01/08 14:16:43)Claidi Song starts to laugh

(01/08 14:16:44)Emor D’ni Lap: Diafero has kindly stored *every* Fan-created Age on his shard

(01/08 14:16:50)Korov’ev: Atlantis closed a few years ago

(01/08 14:17:13)judyg: i used to play the atlantis series

(01/08 14:17:26)Calum Traveler: no questions?

(01/08 14:17:29)philipgr: We have an Atlantis in the Western Cape province

(01/08 14:17:34)Korov’ev: well then, back to my seat!

(01/08 14:17:36)Kong: Hail Atlantis

(01/08 14:17:38)Calum Traveler: alright, thanks for speaking, Korov! 🙂

(01/08 14:17:49)judyg: thank you Kor

(01/08 14:17:55)Calum Traveler: alright, time to wrap things up

(01/08 14:18:05)Calum Traveler: if you havent seen it: Minasunda did a lovely year end wrap up video for 2021

(01/08 14:18:07)Calum Traveler:

(01/08 14:18:18)judyg: sweet!!

(01/08 14:18:19)Claidi Song: for Mina

(01/08 14:18:24)Boywhith: yeah, it is a lovely one!!

(01/08 14:18:27)Ro”Jethhe: What a year 2021 was.

(01/08 14:18:45)Ro”Jethhe: Mina is the best!

(01/08 14:18:55)TikiBear: DI VA DI VA DI VA

(01/08 14:19:00)judyg: indeed the best

(01/08 14:19:01)Calum Traveler: i also did a video of my own, too, though with less of a focus on the events, and more on the places, 🙂
