(05/06 13:15:00) Calum Traveler: lastly, our creative prompt for MAY
(05/06 13:15:17) Calum Traveler: our prompt is: Spring. (Give us all the plays on words, all the puns you can think of. No holds barred pun challenge is a go!)
(05/06 13:15:48) Calum Traveler: about the hard cutoff dates, we have a little wriggleroom after given international folks
(05/06 13:16:06) Calum Traveler: but please try to get your stuff in before that, just to not worry about it. 😉
(05/06 13:16:57) Calum Traveler: please keep an eye on the blog at https://mysterium.net/ for upcoming news on the SCHEDULE, the final headcount, and any other important information.
(05/06 13:17:20) Calum Traveler needs a moment to breathe!
(05/06 13:17:28) IwonK fans Cal
(05/06 13:17:39) Calum Traveler: okay.
(05/06 13:17:57) Calum Traveler: the last few things i have to say are Minktata related
(05/06 13:18:15) rarified: I like the …tata 😉
(05/06 13:18:24) Calum Traveler: we’ve begun testing for items of inclusion in Q2. there’s a few new areas that ill leave teased by their respective folks…
(05/06 13:18:24) Mevvah snickers behind her hand at “mink tata”
(05/06 13:18:29) IwonK: me too, it’s “dad” in PL 😀
(05/06 13:18:33) Calum Traveler: …sighs, typos.
(05/06 13:18:41) Calum Traveler: anyways,
(05/06 13:18:42) Maurus chuckles
(05/06 13:18:45) Calum Traveler: first up to speak…
(05/06 13:18:46) Calum Traveler: DOOBES
(05/06 13:18:48) Calum Traveler beckons you
(05/06 13:19:09) Doobes: Why hello everyone!
(05/06 13:19:18) Doobes: Just wanted to drop in and give you a quick but important update.
(05/06 13:19:29) Doobes: We have officially begun testing the first part of the expanded Descent on Minkata!
(05/06 13:19:42) Tom(Samoth): wow!
(05/06 13:19:45) Doobes: This means that the process to include this expansion in a future update is underway!
(05/06 13:19:58) Mevvah: Cooooooolllll
(05/06 13:20:05) Sathopper: can’t wait
(05/06 13:20:06) Doobes: So far, we’ve got things very roughly working, although a lot of multiplayer functions still need to be addressed.
(05/06 13:20:17) ScottMiller: Desent on Minkata?
(05/06 13:20:26) Doobes: I’ve been touching up the scripts and I hope to have proper fixes soon.
(05/06 13:20:29) Calum Traveler: minkata alpha, yes, heh
(05/06 13:20:37) Emor D’ni Lap: for testing purposes
(05/06 13:20:44) Calum Traveler: yes, for testing purposes. 😉
(05/06 13:20:45) rarified: Minkata testing shard. Not the age.
(05/06 13:20:48) Maurus: ScottMiller: Minkata and Minkata Alpha are the name of testing servers
(05/06 13:20:57) Doobes: Yup. Two layers of Minkata, then staging…then MOULa. 😉
(05/06 13:21:03) ScottMiller: ah…
(05/06 13:21:05) Doobes: Now that there’s more eyes on things, a litany of visual fixes have been found that need addressing.
(05/06 13:21:19) Doobes: Plus some suggestions and additions that are still in the works.
(05/06 13:21:31) Doobes: As such, I’ll be working through all of that in the coming days and pushing a new version soon, which will probably have new stuff to address.
(05/06 13:21:33) cjherkeless: “descent on minkata” is a concert event however
(05/06 13:21:51) Doobes: Now I did want to get this ready for a Q2 release for a big reveal at Mysterium…
(05/06 13:21:55) rarified rolls his eyes
(05/06 13:22:07) Doobes: …but sadly, it’s looking like this will not be possible; the project is too big and given its importance in the grand scheme, we want to get this right.
(05/06 13:22:09) Prad: MOULa = MinkataOpenUruLa-yers…
(05/06 13:22:20) ScottMiller: How close is Descent to being released?
(05/06 13:22:24) Doobes: My new promise, however, is to get this expansion to you all sometime this year.
(05/06 13:22:24) Emor D’ni Lap: thank you Prad, helpful
(05/06 13:22:46) Doobes: I’ll do my very best to make this happen. Then it’ll be time to work on the next phase/part of the path to D’ni!
(05/06 13:23:16) Doobes: Still lots of work to be done, ScottMiller, but it’s relatively close. 😉
(05/06 13:23:21) Doobes: That’s all I’ve got for now. Any questions?
(05/06 13:23:26) Calum Traveler: none in queue
(05/06 13:23:28) rarified: It’s a simple matter of programming 😛
(05/06 13:23:29) ShilohOBrien laughs her head off.
(05/06 13:23:42) Emor D’ni Lap: piece of cake, right rarified?
(05/06 13:23:53) IwonK: (or a cookie? 😉 )
(05/06 13:23:54) Doobes: Ha! I’m the one baking that cake and it’s anything but. 😛
(05/06 13:24:04) Calum Traveler: its is a beautiful one though
< class=”speaker”>(05/06 13:24:06) Doobes: Right then. Thanks for your time!
(05/06 13:24:07) Doobes bows
(05/06 13:24:07) Mevvah: When you say “path to D’ni” do you mean all those hallways and neat doors we went through in the offline (single player” URU:CC game, that never ended up in MOULa?
(05/06 13:24:32) Calum Traveler: by path to D’ni, we mean the route from the caldera at the surface, fully down to the lake in the cavern
(05/06 13:24:37) Doobes: Mevvah, if you’re referring to what we saw in Myst V or the demo, then yes.
(05/06 13:24:45) Doobes: Plus more eventually.
(05/06 13:24:51) Doobes: The full path from surface to cavern.
(05/06 13:24:58) Doobes: (in parts)
(05/06 13:25:01) Sathopper: great
(05/06 13:25:03) Calum Traveler: this will just be stage one of many, 😉
(05/06 13:25:08) rarified: Bring extra running shoes.
(05/06 13:25:19) Calum Traveler echoes, “Two Hour Run”
(05/06 13:25:22) Mevvah: Oh that is very cool.
(05/06 13:25:24) Doobes: Yep! It’s a long path, so it’ll be released in parts until the whole thing is traversable.
(05/06 13:25:26) cjherkeless: or a parachute
(05/06 13:25:26) philipgr: And lots of candles
(05/06 13:25:47) Mevvah: Or a jetpack… 😉
(05/06 13:25:59) Doobes: Anyway, I’ll be here for questions in PM. Thanks again!
(05/06 13:26:01) Doobes salutes
(05/06 13:26:02) IwonK: long-fall boots…
(05/06 13:26:04) shokhootahn Rehn: Or firemarbles from Relto
(05/06 13:26:04) ShilohOBrien: Maybe I should bring a bicycle.
(05/06 13:26:04) caver1: Carbide light?
(05/06 13:26:05) rarified: Two mile rappel anyone?
(05/06 13:26:11) Calum Traveler: thank you, doobes
(05/06 13:26:11) Maurus imagines floating down Descent with the sailcloth from Breath of the Wild
(05/06 13:26:13) Calum Traveler: next up…
(05/06 13:26:15) Calum Traveler: Christopher Therburg!
(05/06 13:26:17) Calum Traveler beckons you
(05/06 13:26:23) ScottMiller: in what direction, surface to cavern or vice verse?
(05/06 13:26:26) Eternal Seeker grabs a veeeery long rope
(05/06 13:26:32) Doobes: Both, ScottMiller.
(05/06 13:26:35) Christopher Therburg: Shorah everyone.
(05/06 13:26:49) Christopher Therburg: I would like to announce that the work on the Fall of D’ni Memorial Island in the D’ni Cavern has been progressed.
(05/06 13:27:06) Christopher Therburg: That means my project isn’t dead.
(05/06 13:27:23) Christopher Therburg: It would have been nice if I had opened the island last year, but unfortunately I had a lot to do on the surface and it wasn’t possible to continue working on it because of that.
(05/06 13:27:35) Doobes: Heh, it wasn’t dead, just sleeping. 😛
(05/06 13:27:45) Christopher Therburg: So I considered giving my project to other people I can trust and I acted as a supervisor instead.
(05/06 13:27:48) Maurus: “I’m not quite dead yet, sir!”
(05/06 13:27:52) rarified: Ending… Written… Not?
(05/06 13:28:02) Mevvah laughs
(05/06 13:28:04) Christopher Therburg: It’s worked out.
(05/06 13:28:18) Christopher Therburg: Together, we were able to convert and restore this island into a memorial. So it’s become a community project.
(05/06 13:28:51) Christopher Therburg: The work on the island has progressed very quickly and I would like to give a special thank you to Tweek for making the conversion and restoration so wonderful.
(05/06 13:29:06) Calum Traveler: indeed, our good friend Keith “Tweek” Lord couldn’t be here today due to surface matters,
(05/06 13:29:07) Doobes: Tweek does the best work. 🙂
(05/06 13:29:12) Christopher Therburg: And there he is.
(05/06 13:29:19) Tweek: I do?
(05/06 13:29:25) Doobes laughs
(05/06 13:29:26) Calum Traveler: but he’s done amazing work there, and we’re- Ahha! I knew i’d summon you if I called you!
(05/06 13:29:27) Maurus laughs
(05/06 13:29:34) Calum Traveler beckons you
(05/06 13:29:34) Doobes: Surprise guest! XD
(05/06 13:29:37) Mevvah: speak of the …?
(05/06 13:29:40) Calum Traveler: cmmere!
(05/06 13:29:47) Calum Traveler: we’re just talking about the Memorial Island.
(05/06 13:30:11) Christopher Therburg: I did the basic work and he carried it on.
(05/06 13:30:23) Tweek: Ah yeah, really enjoyed working on that project
(05/06 13:30:41) Christopher Therburg: That’s true.
(05/06 13:30:48) Christopher Therburg: Yes, the island had already been built on, some time prior of the Fall of D’ni. But we weren’t sure what this island was for.
(05/06 13:31:05) Christopher Therburg: Some said it was a wedding place. Others said it was a small park overlooking Ae’gura.
(05/06 13:31:20) Christopher Therburg: It is now most likely that it was more of a small park than of a wedding place.
(05/06 13:31:40) Christopher Therburg: Another dock was added to the dock area and the memorial that I created and designed was placed on the spot where the largest stalagmite on the island once stood.
(05/06 13:32:04) Christopher Therburg: So the island has finally reached phase 5. There are still a few things that need to be done before the island can open.
(05/06 13:32:24) Christopher Therburg: A small summary of the project itself for those who didn’t knew about the project:
(05/06 13:32:25) ShilohOBrien zips her lip
(05/06 13:32:28) Thumbs up from shokhootahn Rehn
(05/06 13:32:41) Christopher Therburg: Three years earlier, I took a closer look at the cavern and noticed that the DRC or someone else didn’t erected a memorial to the “Fall of D’ni”, the worst catastrophe in D’ni history.
(05/06 13:33:00) Christopher Therburg: I wanted to change that and it would be nice to build a memorial that fits the style of D’ni architecture. This memorial is meant to commemorate the D’ni who perished in this cataclysm.
(05/06 13:33:23) Christopher Therburg: I had considered placing the memorial in Ae’gura, but there were some complications with two locations where the memorial should have been.
(05/06 13:33:48) Christopher Therburg: Then I remembered this little island with the broken stalagmite and the small park near Ae’gura that I saw while exploring the cavern six years ago.
(05/06 13:34:10) giovanni4: Buona Sera a tutti – Guten Abend
(05/06 13:34:11) Christopher Therburg: We thought this would be a better location for it and you also have a better view of Ae’gura and the whole D’ni cavern.
(05/06 13:34:32) Calum Traveler: it’s a very aesthetic view.
(05/06 13:34:33) Mevvah: Shorah giovanni
(05/06 13:34:45) Christopher Therburg: Yep.
(05/06 13:34:55) Christopher Therburg: You are now wondering when the island will open.
(05/06 13:35:09) Christopher Therburg: Well we have planned that the island will open in Q2 of this year as the island is almost done with the conversion and restoration.
(05/06 13:35:45) Christopher Therburg: We hope that the memorial respects the late D’ni and that the people have a better understanding of the context of why it happened and why the D’ni City is empty now.
(05/06 13:36:14) Christopher Therburg: Also, I hope we can use the island on the Memorial Day (July 12th or Leesahn 8) and commemorate the deceased D’ni together.
(05/06 13:36:38) Christopher Therburg: The island will reached trought Chiso first, but in the future it will also be possible to reach it with the Nexus and with a boat from Ae’gura.
(05/06 13:37:05) Christopher Therburg: Any questions?
(05/06 13:37:08) Calum Traveler: none in queue.
(05/06 13:37:32) Christopher Therburg: Do you want to say something Tweek?
(05/06 13:37:52) Tweek: Don’t think so 🙂
(05/06 13:37:56) Calum Traveler: i just want to say, the lighting and atmosphere there are superb. 🙂
(05/06 13:38:10) Calum Traveler: thank you, christopher, and tweek!
(05/06 13:38:10) Christopher Therburg: It’s beautiful.
(05/06 13:38:17) Christopher Therburg: I also wanted to announce that I found a new age somewhere in the cavern. But don’t expect any news about it any time soon. I need to explore and mapping this age first before the restoration can actually begin. But look forward to it in the future.
(05/06 13:39:01) Christopher Therburg: Then I thank you all for listening to me and hope to see you all on the island then.
(05/06 13:39:11) Christopher Therburg bows
(05/06 13:39:20) Emor D’ni Lap: thank you Christopher
(05/06 13:39:33) Calum Traveler: on one final Restoration note, we’re working on a few other areas at the present moment, but there’s no decision yet on whether theyll be Q2 or Q3 releases. we’ll let you know more as we make decisions.
(05/06 13:39:49) Calum Traveler: onto our next speaker!
(05/06 13:39:55) Calum Traveler beckons you
(05/06 13:39:55) Calum Traveler: Maurus!
(05/06 13:40:02) Mevvah: it’s ok. You REALLY don’t h ave to go terribly fast, we Myst folk are slow gamers
(05/06 13:40:05) Emor D’ni Lap applauds Maurus
(05/06 13:40:11) Maurus waves hello
(05/06 13:40:39) Maurus: By the way… I’ve had a peek at the memorial island. The boys have done exceptional restoration work, you folks will love it. 🙂

(05/06 13:46:52) rarified thanks IwonK the Cookie shaman.
(05/06 13:47:00) shokhootahn Rehn: First, the language classes…
(05/06 13:47:50) 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.
(05/06 13:48:19) shokhootahn Rehn: All classes are Monday through Friday, only. There are no weekend classes available.
(05/06 13:48:36) shokhootahn Rehn: Though, daytime availability is subject to change with little or no notice.
(05/06 13:48:45) shokhootahn Rehn: If you are going to contact me by KI-mail, remember to inclue your KI #.
(05/06 13:48:56) shokhootahn Rehn: Also, I can be found on Discord at r’Tayrtahn#1317.
(05/06 13:49:10) shokhootahn Rehn: As always, current students can find last-minute updates to class times on the left-hand imager.
(05/06 13:49:38) shokhootahn Rehn: .Now for some exciting news…
(05/06 13:50:31) shokhootahn Rehn: Another victim… er, student… has completed the 101 class and is working on their final exam.
(05/06 13:51:08) shokhootahn Rehn: The Guild of Instructors’ Hood will be open and public unless a class is in session.
(05/06 13:51:19) shokhootahn Rehn: I have one request for visitors: Please do not post pellet points into the Hood imager…
(05/06 13:51:27) shokhootahn Rehn: (a recurring request)
(05/06 13:51:37) 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.
(05/06 13:51:49) shokhootahn Rehn: She was a great student and became a close friend in the process.
(05/06 13:51:59) shokhootahn Rehn: She was another explorer who left us way too soon.
(05/06 13:52:07) Mevvah: Aw….
(05/06 13:52:14) shokhootahn Rehn: Are there any questions?
(05/06 13:52:39) IwonK: what’s the meaning of life…?
(05/06 13:52:44) Mevvah: 42
(05/06 13:52:45) IwonK: (I’ll shut up now 😛 )
(05/06 13:52:51) shokhootahn Rehn: lol
(05/06 13:53:02) shokhootahn Rehn: Moving on…
(05/06 13:53:14) shokhootahn Rehn: The second announcement is about r’Taytahn’s Story Night.
(05/06 13:53:30) shokhootahn Rehn: 8 weeks ago, we started the story of Atrus as told in the novel Myst: The Book of Atrus. Tonight, is part 9 of the fourteen-part series of stories from Myst: The Book of Atrus. It is story number 61 of 104 in the story cycle of the history of D’ni.
(05/06 13:53:35) ScottMiller finishing D’ni 101 was quite an experience…
(05/06 13:54:08) shokhootahn Rehn: So, there is still plenty of history to go!
(05/06 13:54:25) 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.
(05/06 13:54:53) shokhootahn Rehn: I am recording Story Night for (eventual) upload to my YouTube channel (r’Tayrtahn). I have created 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. 😉
(05/06 13:55:12) shokhootahn Rehn: Story Night is held in the public neighborhood of Tsahno’s Hood every Saturday.
(05/06 13:55:22) 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.
(05/06 13:55:40) 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.
(05/06 13:56:03) shokhootahn Rehn: I also post changes on the left-hand imager in the hood.
(05/06 13:56:14) 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. 🙂
(05/06 13:56:32) shokhootahn Rehn: Minasunda is one of those members, as she runs the announcements channel on Discord.
(05/06 13:57:03) shokhootahn Rehn: So if she tells you there’s no story, believe her. :-))
(05/06 13:57:14) shokhootahn Rehn: The stories are told using voice so you will need to have your speakers or headsets on.
(05/06 13:57:30) 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. 🙂
(05/06 13:57:49) shokhootahn Rehn: We hope to see you there!
(05/06 13:57:55) shokhootahn Rehn: Any questions?
(05/06 13:58:09) Calum Traveler: none in queue
(05/06 13:58:10) Sathopper: should be nice if the audio codec could be upgraded for better quality
(05/06 13:58:16) shokhootahn Rehn: It looks like todays SN-E will start about 14:30.
(05/06 13:58:17) Mevvah: Regarding the language clases
(05/06 13:58:26) Mevvah: Are they held in the GoI hood?
(05/06 13:58:33) shokhootahn Rehn: Yes
(05/06 13:58:41) shokhootahn Rehn: In the classroom, no less!
