All Guilds Meeting – May 2021 – Cleansed Chatlog


(05/01 13:00:57)Korov’ev: Shorah, and welcome to the 133rd All Guilds Meeting!

(05/01 13:01:03)Korov’ev: In the D’ni calendar today is Leefo 9, 9677, and the time is 14:4:01

(05/01 13:01:11)Korov’ev: If there’s anyone new: welcome to the Cavern! You picked the best time to visit 🙂

(05/01 13:01:20)Korov’ev: As usual, I’ll remind you the 5 Meeting Rules:

(05/01 13:01:27)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.

(05/01 13:01:40)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.

(05/01 13:01:49)Korov’ev: 3. Speakers, please indicate when you are done speaking and ready for questions, and when you’re ready for the next question.

(05/01 13:02:00)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.

(05/01 13:02:04)Synapse waves goodbye

(05/01 13:02:10)Korov’ev: 5. A summary and a chatlog of this meeting will be published in the next few days on the Guild of Messengers’ site:

(05/01 13:02:16)Korov’ev: Of course, you can start your own chatlog with “/startlog”.

(05/01 13:02:34)Korov’ev: First, let’s hear about upcoming events – and more importantly, parties – in the Cavern, from Minasunda!

(05/01 13:02:54)TikiBear: MI NA MI NA MI NA

(05/01 13:03:00)Minasunda: shorah my friends 🙂

(05/01 13:03:08)GooberChilla claps their hands

(05/01 13:03:09)Minasunda: last month we had two special events.

(05/01 13:03:20)Minasunda: Thanks to Yoda and Mirphak for a wonderful and magical D’ni New Year celebration. Also thanks to both of you for supporting the Nulp Dance Show “Mother Earth Day”.

(05/01 13:03:33)Minasunda: And thanks to Eternal Seeker for streaming the music for both events.

(05/01 13:03:46)Minasunda: Of course, thanks to all of you for coming. 🙂

(05/01 13:03:59)Minasunda: Those who didn’t have the opportunity to be there – here are the video links:

(05/01 13:04:11)Minasunda: D’ni New Year:

(05/01 13:04:25)Minasunda: Nulp Dance Show “Mother Earth Day”:

(05/01 13:04:37)Minasunda: and now for the next event:

(05/01 13:04:49)Minasunda: Another interesting event awaits you on May 15th at 12 KI in Mir-O-Bot’s Jalak.

(05/01 13:05:02)Minasunda: “Mabes Rebus”

(05/01 13:05:13)Minasunda: Mabe put together picture puzzles in Jalak with an enormous amount of creativity. It shows symbols and structures from Uru and some Myst Ages.

(05/01 13:05:27)Minasunda: The event is intended as a little competition.

(05/01 13:05:37)Minasunda: It starts with simple pictures to warm up and then increases the level of difficulty.

(05/01 13:05:50)Minasunda: Whoever first writes in the chat what is displayed receives one point. A little surprise awaits the winner.

(05/01 13:06:01)Minasunda: Depending on how long it takes to solve the puzzles, Mabe will do a short show afterwards. I can assure you – this will be great.

(05/01 13:06:13)Minasunda: If there is not enough time for the show part before the start of the story night, we will soon find an appointment to show you Mabes creations.

(05/01 13:06:25)Minasunda: Eternal Seeker will also take over the music stream for this event.

(05/01 13:06:36)Minasunda: Since Mir-O-Bot cannot be there, MinBot will step in for the event. You need to add MinBot to your Buddy list. The KI is 9292763. With PM “link” or “meet” you will be linked to the event location.

(05/01 13:06:52)Minasunda: Thats all from me – thank you for your attention – any questions ?

(05/01 13:07:14)Korov’ev: none in queue

(05/01 13:07:16)ametist’ thinks it’s going to be great!

(05/01 13:07:19)Minasunda bows

(05/01 13:07:21)Korov’ev: Thank you Minasunda!

(05/01 13:07:30)GooberChilla claps their hands

(05/01 13:07:30)Emor D’ni Lap thanks Mina for her continued work!

(05/01 13:07:43)Korov’ev: And like every month, next week there’ll be a Cavern Tour,

(05/01 13:07:49)Korov’ev: on Saturday, May 8, at 10:00 KIT, starting in Cavern Tour’s Hood.

(05/01 13:07:56)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:

(05/01 13:08:04)BIG thumbs up from Ro”Jethhe

(05/01 13:08:07)Korov’ev: Videos will be available for two weeks after the tour. The stream will be simulcasted on Facebook and Youtube.

(05/01 13:08:21)Korov’ev: Mir-o-Bot (KI# 32319) is usually employed for special effects and long-distance travel (and to avoid stairs).

(05/01 13:08:45)Korov’ev: And now, some updates on the Age Restoration Project: let’s hear from Doobes!

(05/01 13:09:06)GooberChilla claps their hands

(05/01 13:09:12)Doobes: Hello, ladies and gentlemen!

(05/01 13:09:18)Emor D’ni Lap applauds Doobes

(05/01 13:09:25)Doobes: I just wanted to stop in to give a quick update on the new content.

(05/01 13:09:25)Boywhith: Hi Doobes!

(05/01 13:09:35)Doobes: 😛

(05/01 13:09:38)Doobes: Our friend Chogon has designated Cinco de Mayo, aka Wednesday, May 5th, as the update day for MOULa. It’ll start around 10:30 KI time and last about two hours.

(05/01 13:10:08)Doobes: Note that all three new Ages won’t be available at once. When will they appear? You’ll just have to wait and see. 😛

(05/01 13:10:25)Doobes: Yes, I know…that’s a *huge* tease, but think of it like the Gametap days before episodes. You never know what’ll happen or how!

(05/01 13:10:36)Doobes: Or when. 😀

(05/01 13:10:36)Korov’ev: ah, the anticipation 🙂

(05/01 13:10:48)Doobes: I can tell you one of the Ages will become available soon after the update…but that’s all I’ll say. 😉

(05/01 13:10:54)Korov’ev: Chewy, off the stage please

(05/01 13:11:03)Doobes: So be sure to keep stopping in…just in case!

(05/01 13:11:12)Doobes: Heh, hey Chewy. 😀

(05/01 13:11:15)Creekwriter: So no looking in until 1230 KI?

(05/01 13:11:46)Korov’ev taps his foot

(05/01 13:11:48)Doobes remains tight lipped so as not to spoil anything

(05/01 13:11:56)Doobes: On top of the new Ages, we’re also bringing some lovely fixes for the classic ones.

(05/01 13:11:57)TikiBear looks for Bahro bouncer

(05/01 13:12:00)ametist’ smiles

(05/01 13:12:10)Doobes: Some industrious explorers have been working on fixing that unruly clock in the neighborhoods.

(05/01 13:12:28)Doobes: If you hadn’t noticed, it’s juuuuuust a bit off, so they wanted to correct it so we can tell real D’ni time.

(05/01 13:12:38)Korov’ev: …just a bit

(05/01 13:12:47)Doobes: Our intrepid clock repair team consists of Hoikas, Deledrius, boq, estherbolik, and Marten. It has NOT been as easy a fix as you may think, so I commend them for sticking with it. 🙂

(05/01 13:13:04)Doobes: I may have missed a few names. If I did, apologies. 😀

(05/01 13:13:16)Doobes: There’s also some quality of life fixes to the KI chat that should make it much easier to chat.

(05/01 13:13:30)PodHopper: oh?

(05/01 13:13:36)Doobes: For instance, avatar names and KI commands are now case insensitive, so you could potentially PM me by typing /p Doobes, /p doobes, /p DooBES, etc. or /roll, /ROLL, /rOlL, and so on.

(05/01 13:13:57)Doobes: So if you mistype something, you won’t have to repeatedly tap the backspace key and retype or get that pesky “no such command” error as often.

(05/01 13:14:17)Doobes: You will also be able to partially type an avatar’s name, then hit TAB to autocomplete their name. If there’s multiples, you can continue hitting TAB until the correct name is displayed.

(05/01 13:14:32)Thumbs up from MindWalker

(05/01 13:14:38)Emor D’ni Lap: nice

(05/01 13:14:42)Boywhith: Nice!

(05/01 13:14:45)Doobes: Lastly, you can now hit the UP and DOWN arrows to cycle through previous KI chat and commands. It can save the last 50 you used!

(05/01 13:15:07)Ro”Jethhe is amazed!

(05/01 13:15:12)PodHopper does a dance

(05/01 13:15:14)Doobes: We’re also bringing the fabled aspect ratio and resolution corrections from the H’uru client! No longer will you be subjected to a squished URU if you go widescreen.

(05/01 13:15:33)TikiBear: But, it’s so slimming!

(05/01 13:15:41)Doobes: 😛

(05/01 13:15:45)Doobes: Fullscreen will also automatically use your native resolution, so no need to adjust anything if you choose that option.

(05/01 13:15:46)ametist’ laughs

(05/01 13:15:55)GooberChilla gasps

(05/01 13:16:05)Thumbs up from Argo

(05/01 13:16:08)Doobes: And last, but certainly not least, a fix from Hoikas will take care of that incredibly dark Relto hut bug some have been experiencing when the windows are closed.

(05/01 13:16:15)Marten: Here too, you can blame the pandemic for everyone’s waists getting larger. 😉

(05/01 13:16:30)Tweek: Indeed

(05/01 13:16:48)Doobes: I’m not sure if I described anything incorrectly there, but I think I got the gist of it. If anyone needs to correct me, feel free. 😉

(05/01 13:17:00)Doobes: This is what it’s all about, my friends. Fine tuning, improving upon, and adding to the game we all know and love.

(05/01 13:17:14)Doobes: I do apologize that we weren’t able to hit the late April mark, but these things are tough to pin down.

(05/01 13:17:29)Doobes: We definitely need to thank everyone who put in the hard work to this upcoming update as this batch of fixes is nothing short of impressive.

(05/01 13:17:50)GooberChilla claps their hands

(05/01 13:17:51)Marten: I didn’t have any involvement in the clock fixes. So I don’t deserve any credit there.

(05/01 13:17:58)Ro”Jethhe: This mind blowing!

(05/01 13:18:01)Doobes: And I definitely need to give kudos to Chogon once again. He’s been very patient, understanding, and quite enthusiastic with what we’ve been doing since long before that first big update last year.

(05/01 13:18:02)Emor D’ni Lap: hooray for the tech gang!

(05/01 13:18:17)Emor D’ni Lap: Praise the Universe for Chogon

(05/01 13:18:19)Doobes: (AND when I pester him about flipping on and off GoMe Pub SDL states 😛 ).

(05/01 13:18:24)Doobes laughs

(05/01 13:18:27)Creekwriter: Yahoo!

(05/01 13:18:32)Korov’ev: heh

(05/01 13:18:37)Doobes: Without him, we’d be dead in the water on all this…so thank him if you get the chance to do so! And I for one hope he enjoyed his well-earned vacation recently! 😀

(05/01 13:19:01)Doobes: Also, March was a *very* good month for the CAVCON. Your donations continue to keep things running and the content machine turning here…

(05/01 13:19:14)ametist’ thinks Chogon rocks 🙂

(05/01 13:19:24)Doobes: …so THANK YOU! And keep kicking in when you can. Every little bit helps!

(05/01 13:19:37)Doobes: On that note, any questions?

(05/01 13:19:47)Korov’ev: one:

(05/01 13:19:53)Korov’ev: actually two

(05/01 13:19:55)Doobes nods

(05/01 13:19:59)Korov’ev: Our next question is from Theo.

(05/01 13:19:59)Korov’ev: [Theo] Will the case insensitivity fix apply to “cleardaImager”?

(05/01 13:20:20)Marten: It should.

(05/01 13:20:20)Doobes: Ooo…that, I’m not sure. I think that’s case sensitive for a reason?

(05/01 13:20:25)Ro”Jethhe: Good question thoe

(05/01 13:20:25)Doobes shrugs

(05/01 13:20:41)Argo: isnt that an imager upload rather than a text command?

(05/01 13:20:46)Doobes: Indeed. I’m sure someone wiser than myself on the Python aspect of things could answer that better. Sorry. :S

(05/01 13:20:55)Korov’ev: noted for later 😉

(05/01 13:21:00)Korov’ev: Our next question is from shokhootahn Rehn.

(05/01 13:21:00)Korov’ev: [shokhootahn Rehn] Question for Doobes: Are the neighborhood clocks not working off the server or are they still keyed to the clients? Wil everyone see the same time or will some still see a different time, as before?

(05/01 13:22:03)Doobes: I think that’s something that’s set when the hood is created. I believe it’s similar to the Eder Gira day/night cycle being different for vaiours instances.

(05/01 13:22:25)Korov’ev: calculation is based on UTC, so it should be the same for everyone

(05/01 13:22:41)Doobes: Again, I’m not the tech-head. Just presenting the good news. But these are great questions! You should hang out in the OpneURU Discord for the real skinny on things.

(05/01 13:22:53)Doobes: *OpenURU

(05/01 13:23:05)Korov’ev: Our next question is from CaptainQuery.

(05/01 13:23:06)Korov’ev: [CaptainQuery] How are things progressing on Doobes’ own age projects?

(05/01 13:23:19)Doobes: If you’re not against spoilers, it’s where the majority of discussion for what’s going here at some point.

(05/01 13:23:47)Doobes: Ah, now THAT I can answer. Now that I’ve finished (for now) this batch of great work from other Age builders, I’m going back to work on my own stuff.

(05/01 13:24:03)Doobes: Next up will most likely be the Vale. What comes after that?

(05/01 13:24:08)Doobes: You’ll see. 😛

(05/01 13:24:15)Doobes laughs

(05/01 13:24:34)ametist’ smiles

(05/01 13:24:34)Doobes: If there’s no more questions, I’ll free up the stage. 🙂

(05/01 13:24:42)Korov’ev: Thank you Doobes!

(05/01 13:24:45)Doobes bows

(05/01 13:24:46)cjherkeless is extremely grateful we have Doobes

(05/01 13:24:56)darkwingduck: thanks doobes:)

(05/01 13:25:01)GooberChilla claps their ahnds

(05/01 13:25:18)Korov’ev: Now, some news from OpenUru, from Rarified!

(05/01 13:25:22)Doobes: Remember…not just me. LOTS of people made this update happen and they’re all awesome. 🙂

(05/01 13:25:38)GooberChilla claps their hands

(05/01 13:25:40)Emor D’ni Lap applauds rarified

(05/01 13:25:41)Marten: But if you don’t like the update, throw all your tomatoes at Doobes! 😉

(05/01 13:25:50)rarified: As always, Shorah all!

(05/01 13:25:57)shokhootahn Rehn laughs at Marten

(05/01 13:26:11)Doobes can take the heat…and tomatoes

(05/01 13:26:12)GooberChilla adds tomatoes to their shopping list

(05/01 13:26:19)rarified: As mentioned we’ve delivered a big bundle to Cyan and it will go live on May 5th.

(05/01 13:26:38)Marten: Cinco de MOULa-o.

(05/01 13:26:50)rarified: It contains both content and client repairs. Doobes has already gone down my list 🙂

(05/01 13:27:06)Doobes: I’m hoping you’ll be better with the tech questions than I was. 😀

(05/01 13:27:17)rarified: But… I want to mention a couple of us have been working to improve

(05/01 13:27:36)rarified: the ability of to add fixes and improvements to the client.

(05/01 13:28:17)rarified: I’d like to acknowledge Marten, who has taken the bull by the horns, and

(05/01 13:28:36)rarified: started looking at user/driver improvements, whereas I still am down where

(05/01 13:28:51)rarified: the mushrooms grow fixing things below.

(05/01 13:29:03)rarified: Marten, do you want to take a bow or come down her?

(05/01 13:29:03)Doobes: 😛

(05/01 13:29:10)rarified: here?

(05/01 13:29:18)Marten bows

(05/01 13:29:21)Doobes readies some tomatoes >:D

(05/01 13:29:27)Emor D’ni Lap thanks Marten

(05/01 13:29:28)TikiBear: DI VA DI VA DI VA

(05/01 13:29:33)GooberChilla claps their hands

(05/01 13:29:49)rarified: I believe Marten has put out a call for fans to list their most wantedd

(05/01 13:30:05)rarified: improvements to the client interface and behavior. If you have input of that

(05/01 13:30:20)rarified: kind, please visit the OpenUru discord channels, either #hood or #dev

(05/01 13:30:26)rarified: and let us know.

(05/01 13:30:27)Marten: I’ve really just been pressuring rarified to go faster, and taking the hard work of others and porting it over. Nothing special. But yes! Let me know what features you want ported from H’uru. (Frame rate unlock is high on the next list.)

(05/01 13:30:53)rarified: I’ve worked several iterations to make it easier for folks like Marten to

(05/01 13:30:55)Doobes: Hey, porting is important too. Hehehe.

(05/01 13:31:11)rarified: add contributions to the build pipeline, and I think we’ve

(05/01 13:31:37)rarified: vastly improved things. Don’t let Marten feel alone — if you can take

(05/01 13:31:58)rarified: time to help — moving things from the H’uru client, independent fixes,

(05/01 13:32:11)rarified: let me know and we’ll try to get you started.

(05/01 13:32:35)rarified: I still am working to bring the MOUL/Minkata client in very large chunks

(05/01 13:33:01)rarified: synchronized with the work from the GoW/H’uru team, so

(05/01 13:33:20)rarified: the MOUL client code is somewhat of a moving target. But I’ll

(05/01 13:33:29)rarified: help however I can.

(05/01 13:33:37)Marten: Yes! While we’re not on the latest Visual Studio (yet), the OU client is very easy to build now, MUCH improved from before.

(05/01 13:33:47)rarified: I also want to point out I’ve been able to streamline the content pipeline

(05/01 13:33:50)rarified: for testing.

(05/01 13:34:09)rarified: Within a week of freezing all the parts for the May 5th update, we’ve already

(05/01 13:34:32)rarified: started testing another new age. From someone not in the Doobes-machine 😀

(05/01 13:34:55)rarified: So those of you who dabbled with age creation before, but

(05/01 13:35:11)rarified: put things on the shelf because it looked like it never would happen,

(05/01 13:35:42)rarified: please PLEASE give us a shout again. Age writing is now a thing!

(05/01 13:36:00)Doobes: It can be tricky, but we’ll help you out in any way we can. 🙂

(05/01 13:36:03)Emor D’ni Lap: that’s a beautiful thing to hear, rarified

(05/01 13:36:11)Doobes: Agreed!

(05/01 13:36:18)rarified: Ok. Aside from mushroom cultivating, that’s all I have. Any questions?

(05/01 13:36:36)rarified: (For either Marten who improved the KI, or me?)

(05/01 13:36:40)Korov’ev: Our next question is from Lutra.

(05/01 13:36:40)Korov’ev: [Lutra] Question: How many active developers are now working on updates?

(05/01 13:37:07)rarified: Updates includes in my mind content and programming code. Marten and I are the

(05/01 13:37:23)rarified: primary active contributors to the MOULa client, but we’re building on the work of many

(05/01 13:37:34)rarified: of the GoW members both past and present.

(05/01 13:37:50)Doobes: All those lovely H’uru client fixes. 🙂

(05/01 13:37:51)rarified: Content has been mostly piped through Doobes, although as I said someone

(05/01 13:38:07)rarified: else has begun testing their age.

(05/01 13:38:22)Doobes: Which, again, is very exciting. 🙂

(05/01 13:38:33)Emor D’ni Lap: And Lutra, there are dozens of AGebuilders worldwide constantly developing their projects

(05/01 13:38:44)Tweek: Yep

(05/01 13:38:56)Lutra: thx for the reply.

(05/01 13:39:03)Korov’ev: Our next question is from Ro”Jethhe.

(05/01 13:39:03)Korov’ev: [Ro”Jethhe] Do you think MOULa will ever have CoD just like at Open Cave and Deep Island?

(05/01 13:39:19)rarified: I’m not sure I know what CoD is?

(05/01 13:39:19)Doobes: (City of Dimensions)

(05/01 13:39:27)Ro”Jethhe nods his head

(05/01 13:39:30)Doobes: An alternate Ae’gura with fan additions.

(05/01 13:39:31)Korov’ev: likely not wholesale

(05/01 13:39:55)rarified: If it’s built on Ae’gura’s model, I’m not sure. Remember the linking rules.

(05/01 13:40:15)rarified: If you change a book even a little, you end up on another branch of the tree of possibilities.

(05/01 13:40:35)rarified: So there may be a way to reach that alternative Ae’gura.

(05/01 13:40:55)Korov’ev: Our next question is from Evelyn.

(05/01 13:40:55)Korov’ev: [Evelyn] Does the KI fix allow us to start typing with ‘z’?

(05/01 13:41:01)Emor D’ni Lap: haha

(05/01 13:41:02)rarified: (Assuming someone found the descriptive book for Ae’gura 😉 )

(05/01 13:41:06)Doobes: Plus, some of the additions would need a bit of polish, I’d say.

(05/01 13:41:11)Marten: The fix to start typing with ‘z’ will be in a future update.

(05/01 13:41:25)Marten: Hoikas just fixed that for H’uru recently.

(05/01 13:41:27)Korov’ev: the boat ride is neat, imo

(05/01 13:41:37)Evelyn thanks you very much!

(05/01 13:42:02)Doobes would like to fully restore one of the boats for a proper cruise around the bay.

(05/01 13:42:17)rarified: A note to Evelyn — The ‘z’ key fix is related to using the “Internal” client.

(05/01 13:42:24)PodHopper prays for a Cat Relto page

(05/01 13:42:42)darkwingduck: YASSS!!! pod:)))

(05/01 13:42:43)rarified: As far as I can see with MOULa, we’ll be using the standard (non-Internal) client.

(05/01 13:42:59)cjherkeless: a real-world d’ni would already be populated with so many stray cats

(05/01 13:43:00)Marten: z is broken in External too, rarified. 🙂 But it’ll be fixed.

(05/01 13:43:09)rarified: zzzz?

(05/01 13:43:16)Ro”Jethhe: Hey and a Riven Dagger page!

(05/01 13:43:17)SAL says no cats….tigers, lions and bears are ok

(05/01 13:43:31)PodHopper: right…

(05/01 13:43:31)rarified: Ok, any more?

(05/01 13:43:39)Korov’ev: Thank you Rarified and Marten!

(05/01 13:43:42)rarified bows

(05/01 13:43:54)rarified bows at Marten.

(05/01 13:43:54)Doobes hands his claps

(05/01 13:43:56)GooberChilla claps their hands

(05/01 13:44:05)cjherkeless hugs a clock

(05/01 13:44:11)Korov’ev: Continuing on the topic of fan ages,

(05/01 13:44:16)Korov’ev: the usual Fan Age Expedition update, from the Deep Island shard.

(05/01 13:44:23)Korov’ev: We spent most of April exploring Elsewhere by Denost. We’re not done yet!

(05/01 13:44:44)Korov’ev: to put it mildly 🙂

(05/01 13:44:48)Korov’ev: For May, the plan is to finish Elsewhere, then visit Lonirvan by Jhon J. Jaguar, and later revisit Cathedral by DenDwaler.

(05/01 13:44:57)Korov’ev: The expeditions are on Sunday at 11:00 KIT, starting in the shard Hood (you can get there quickly with “/hood”).

(05/01 13:44:58)ametist’ swims in her sleep lately 🙂

(05/01 13:45:10)Korov’ev: There’s also a (mute) stream:

(05/01 13:45:35)Korov’ev: although while we’re in Elsewhere, we meet there 🙂

(05/01 13:45:43)Korov’ev: Radio Free D’ni will start right after with the preshow, at 12:30 KIT.

(05/01 13:45:59)rarified: I always used “,” and “.” for strafe.

(05/01 13:46:03)Korov’ev: And now, the monthly update from r’Tayrtahn, aka Shokhootahn Rehn!

(05/01 13:46:22)Korov’ev: ahhaaahhah!

(05/01 13:46:23)GooberChilla claps their hands

(05/01 13:46:30)PodHopper: eeeh?

(05/01 13:46:36)Korov’ev: Rehn?

(05/01 13:46:42)Korov’ev: oh 🙂

(05/01 13:46:57)shokhootahn Rehn: !shorah

(05/01 13:47:01)Emor D’ni Lap applauds Rehn

(05/01 13:47:01)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.

(05/01 13:47:17)shokhootahn Rehn: First, the language classes…

(05/01 13:47:46)shokhootahn Rehn: There are no evening classes available, at the moment. There are daytime openings on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and 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.

(05/01 13:48:20)shokhootahn Rehn: As always, current students can find last-minute updates to class times on the left-hand imager.

(05/01 13:48:39)shokhootahn Rehn: Now for some exciting news…

(05/01 13:49:21)shokhootahn Rehn: Currently there are seven (SEVEN!) students taking the classes and are at various stages of completion.

(05/01 13:49:34)Korov’ev: wow

(05/01 13:49:41)Doobes: Nice!

(05/01 13:49:44)shokhootahn Rehn: 😀

(05/01 13:49:54)shokhootahn Rehn: The Guild of Instructors’ Hood will be open and public unless a class is in session.

(05/01 13:50:12)shokhootahn Rehn: Are there any questions?

(05/01 13:50:28)Korov’ev: none in queue

(05/01 13:50:33)shokhootahn Rehn: Moving on…

(05/01 13:50:48)shokhootahn Rehn: The second announcement is about r’Taytahn’s Story Night.

(05/01 13:51:01)shokhootahn Rehn: Story Night – Europe is, currently, in synch with original Story Night.

(05/01 13:51:12)shokhootahn Rehn: We have started the story from the Book of D’ni. Today we are on part four of eight of the stories.

(05/01 13:51:41)shokhootahn Rehn: Story Night is held in the public neighborhood of Tsahno’s Hood every Saturday.

(05/01 13:51:53)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.

(05/01 13:52:16)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.

(05/01 13:52:40)shokhootahn Rehn: I also post changes on the left-hand imager in the hood. (cancelations, etc.)

(05/01 13:53:03)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. 🙂

(05/01 13:53:31)shokhootahn Rehn: The stories are told using voice so you will need to have your speakers or headsets on.

(05/01 13:53:43)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.

(05/01 13:54:09)shokhootahn Rehn: YOU *MUST* INCLUDE YOUR KI NUMBER IN THE BODY OF THE MAIL TO BE ADDED! (caps for emphasis, not for shouting)

(05/01 13:54:44)shokhootahn Rehn hopes he didn’t hurt anyone’s ears

(05/01 13:54:51)PodHopper checks his hearing aids

(05/01 13:54:52)Doobes: What???

(05/01 13:54:56)Doobes: j/k

(05/01 13:55:01)Korov’ev: ow, ow, ow…

(05/01 13:55:03)rarified ‘s ears ring all the time anyway

(05/01 13:55:05)shokhootahn Rehn: 😛

(05/01 13:55:11)shokhootahn Rehn: Some have sent messages to be added but have not included their KI number so they were unable to be added.

(05/01 13:55:18)Korov’ev was close to the speakers

(05/01 13:55:29)shokhootahn Rehn: We hope to see you there!

(05/01 13:55:34)shokhootahn Rehn: Any questions?

(05/01 13:55:35)Doobes wonders if that could be fixed too someday

(05/01 13:55:57)Korov’ev: Thank you, Rehn!

(05/01 13:55:59)shokhootahn Rehn: That would be great, Doobes!

(05/01 13:56:10)shokhootahn Rehn bows

(05/01 13:56:20)GooberChilla claps their hands

(05/01 13:56:38)Korov’ev: Time for some quick Cyan and Mysterium news:

(05/01 13:56:44)Korov’ev: The #cipher-discussions channel was opened on the Cyan Chat Discord server,

(05/01 13:56:49)Korov’ev: to discuss the codes and ciphers that are showing up more and more frequently within communication from Cyan.

(05/01 13:56:59)Korov’ev: It proved rather popular 🙂

(05/01 13:57:15)Korov’ev: As for Mysterium 2021, the Committee has announced that this year convention will be again held exclusively online. Those who already registered will be refunded.

(05/01 13:57:25)Ro”Jethhe is sorta bummed…

(05/01 13:57:25)Korov’ev: Most likely, the online convention will be held as a mix of Zoom, Discord, Twitch and Youtube, like last year.

(05/01 13:57:44)Korov’ev: Time for the summary of this month’s events (times in KI time).

(05/01 13:57:59)Korov’ev: Oh, a PSA: today’s Unwritten twitch stream is canceled, as one of the host is unavailable.

(05/01 13:58:07)Korov’ev: On the other hand, May is Unwritten anniversary month, so there will be stuff happening 😉

(05/01 13:58:18)Doobes: Yay for stuff!

(05/01 13:58:21)Korov’ev: A calendar is also present in the left imager of the Guild of Messengers’ Hood;

(05/01 13:58:27)Korov’ev: if you find a mistake, please let me know so I can correct it.

(05/01 13:58:32)Korov’ev: (Some events already presented by the speakers might be missing.)

(05/01 13:58:39)Korov’ev: Thursday 6 is Leefo 12, the day in 233 DE on which the first Common Library was opened in D’ni – most likely not the one in Ae’gura.

(05/01 13:58:45)Korov’ev: Friday 7 is the 20th anniversary of Myst III: Exile!

(05/01 13:58:59)Doobes: Ooo!

(05/01 13:59:04)Korov’ev: Wednesday 19 is the 14th anniversary of the Gametap first episode “Scars”, during which Minkata was released, and two characters died.

(05/01 13:59:18)darkwingduck: 20 years dude!:)

(05/01 13:59:20)cjherkeless: fourteen.

(05/01 13:59:24)Korov’ev: (Bit of a mood whiplash there)

(05/01 13:59:34)Doobes: Ayup.

(05/01 13:59:38)Korov’ev: 14?

(05/01 13:59:44)Korov’ev: oh

(05/01 13:59:59)Korov’ev: Also Saturday 22 is the Eurovision Song Contest Final, and Tuesday 25 is Towel Day.
