(03/04 13:03:11) Calum Traveler jabs a thumb over shoulder
(03/04 13:03:24) Calum Traveler: it’s a bit rude to interupt folks when they’re talking with it,
(03/04 13:03:52) Claidi Song leans left
(03/04 13:03:54) Calum Traveler: when speakers are talking, keep questions to the end when asked, or DM them to me, and I will add them to the queue

(03/04 13:04:19) Calum Traveler: finally, if we are short on time we will skip questions
(03/04 13:04:27) Calum Traveler: please DM them to the speaker if you have them at that point
(03/04 13:04:37) Calum Traveler shuffles notes
(03/04 13:04:48) Calum Traveler: alright. before we begin proper
(03/04 13:04:57) Calum Traveler: something i’m going to be making a recurring announcement
(03/04 13:05:13) Calum Traveler: please remember that not everyone wishes to be spoiled about things they have not seen
(03/04 13:05:28) Maurus waves hello
(03/04 13:05:30) Calum Traveler: this can be anything ranging from the location of markers, or full on puzzle solutions.
(03/04 13:05:34) Esto: o/
(03/04 13:05:41) Calum Traveler: this also includes content on testing shards like Minkata,
(03/04 13:05:57) FatherTully remembrers the bees and the borgz talk
(03/04 13:06:10) Calum Traveler: there’s been a growing trend as of late where some folks talk about things that could be very considered spoilers not just of future content, but also extant gameplay content.
(03/04 13:06:19) Calum Traveler: and trust me, nobody likes being told a spoiler unprompted.
(03/04 13:06:22) Calum Traveler: and that has happened.
(03/04 13:06:30) Calum Traveler pauses to let that sink in
(03/04 13:06:34) Frobozz: eek
(03/04 13:06:35) ShilohOBrien makes the zipping lips motion.

(03/04 13:07:07) ShilohOBrien: As someone who had the big twist of The Force Awakens spoiled for her, I agree.
(03/04 13:07:09) FatherTully scratches head
(03/04 13:07:27) Calum Traveler: so yes,
(03/04 13:07:30) Calum Traveler: Please
(03/04 13:07:34) Calum Traveler: if you’re helping someone
(03/04 13:07:45) Calum Traveler: consider whether your “help” is actually spoiling them on the experience
(03/04 13:07:55) Calum Traveler: and ask if someone wants to have hints, or nudges,
(03/04 13:08:16) Calum Traveler: but please dont just outright tell folks what a solution is, or where a marker is, without asking them first if they want that information.
(03/04 13:08:37) Calum Traveler: this applies to both existing gameplay, and future content
(03/04 13:08:52) Calum Traveler: and with regards to future content, this applies even to long term players
(03/04 13:09:02) Calum Traveler: not everyone wants to look ahead on the test shards, or works in testing.
(03/04 13:09:21) Calum Traveler: please respect their choices and not spoil future content they may be avoiding.
(03/04 13:09:55) Calum Traveler: if something hasn’t officially been released here on MOULa, keep mum about it, yes?
(03/04 13:10:04) Calum Traveler spots skyisblu

(03/04 13:22:33) skyisblu: Boo
(03/04 13:22:45) Calum Traveler: exceptions are only made if the person who submitted a winning/used design cannot attend.
(03/04 13:23:12) Calum Traveler: ShilohOBrien asks if we attend virtually in the states, can we still order them?
(03/04 13:23:30) Calum Traveler: Only if you know someone who’s attending and is willing to pick up your swag for you and get it to you.
(03/04 13:23:37) rarified: Perhaps the committee would entertain a proxy or two for international folks swag.
(03/04 13:24:12) Calum Traveler: to reiterate, if you want swag but cant attend, see if you can find someone who is attending, and can get you your swag after.
(03/04 13:24:13) FatherTully wonders where’d the cookies go
(03/04 13:24:33) Calum Traveler: we are not set up for bulk shipping of things, and the last time that was tried (2020’s shirts) it took months to get everything out.
(03/04 13:24:46) IwonK quietly passes around quiet cookies
(03/04 13:25:04) ShilohOBrien slips FatherTully a beer.
(03/04 13:25:14) Calum Traveler: moving onto MOULA STORY STUFF!

(03/04 13:26:59) rarified: Tar pits?
(03/04 13:27:10) Calum Traveler: we’re hoping it will settle down, but you may start noticing some very odd noises in the coming months if it doesn’t.
(03/04 13:27:15) philipgr: Dune worms?

(03/04 13:28:29) Rabbit: oooooh!
(03/04 13:28:47) Calum Traveler: this quarter’s update there should include a significant reduction in system time on some lower end machines.
(03/04 13:29:03) Calum Traveler: (this is primarily the reason i’ve delayed the beach)
(03/04 13:29:29) Claidi Song: Naybree is looking good.

(03/04 13:31:40) Calum Traveler: shokhootahn Rehn
(03/04 13:32:10) 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.
(03/04 13:32:25) shokhootahn Rehn: First, the language classes…
(03/04 13:32:57) shokhootahn Rehn: There are evening classes available on weekday evenings on Monday through 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.
(03/04 13:33:47) shokhootahn Rehn: All classes are Monday through Friday, only. TGHere are no weekend classes aailable.
(03/04 13:34:01) shokhootahn Rehn: Though, daytime availability is subject to change with little or no notice.
(03/04 13:34:06) shokhootahn Rehn: *available
(03/04 13:34:39) shokhootahn Rehn: If you are going to contact me by KI-mail, remember to inclue your KI #.
(03/04 13:34:51) shokhootahn Rehn: Also, I can be found on Discord at r’Tayrtahn#1317.
(03/04 13:35:06) shokhootahn Rehn: As always, current students can find last-minute updates to class times on the left-hand imager.
(03/04 13:35:31) shokhootahn Rehn: The Guild of Instructors’ Hood will be open and public unless a class is in session.
(03/04 13:35:45) shokhootahn Rehn: I have one request for visitors: Please do not post pellet points into the Hood imager…
(03/04 13:36:04) 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.
(03/04 13:36:25) shokhootahn Rehn: She was a great student and became a close friend in the process.
(03/04 13:36:34) shokhootahn Rehn: She was another explorer who left us way too soon.
(03/04 13:36:42) shokhootahn Rehn: Are there any questions?
(03/04 13:36:55) FatherTully wonders what pellets are
(03/04 13:37:05) shokhootahn Rehn: Moving on…
(03/04 13:37:13) shokhootahn Rehn: The second announcement is about r’Taytahn’s Story Night.
(03/04 13:37:28) shokhootahn Rehn: As of right now, we are officially at the midpoint in the cycle of stories.
(03/04 13:37:44) shokhootahn Rehn: 17 weeks ago, we started the story of The Fall as told in Myst: The Book of Ti’Ana. Tonight, we start part 1 of the fourteen-part series of stories from Myst: The Book of Atrus. It is story number 53 of 104 in the story cycle of the history of D’ni.
(03/04 13:38:05) shokhootahn Rehn: So, there is still plenty of history to go!
(03/04 13:38:24) shokhootahn Rehn: After that we will begin 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.
(03/04 13:38:50) 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. 😉
(03/04 13:39:11) shokhootahn Rehn: *have created
(03/04 13:39:41) 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. 🙂
(03/04 13:39:56) shokhootahn Rehn: Story Night is held in the public neighborhood of Tsahno’s Hood every Saturday.
(03/04 13:40:08) 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.
(03/04 13:40:30) 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.
(03/04 13:41:07) shokhootahn Rehn: I also post changes on the left-hand imager in the hood.
(03/04 13:41:26) 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. 🙂
(03/04 13:41:41) shokhootahn Rehn: Minasunda is one of those members, as she runs the announcements channel on Discord.
(03/04 13:41:56) shokhootahn Rehn: The stories are told using voice so you will need to have your speakers or headsets on.
(03/04 13:42:09) 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. 🙂
(03/04 13:42:33) shokhootahn Rehn: We hope to see you there!
(03/04 13:42:38) shokhootahn Rehn: Any questions?
(03/04 13:42:51) Calum Traveler: none in queue
(03/04 13:43:03) shokhootahn Rehn: It looks like todays SN-E will start about 14:15.
