All Guilds Meeting – July 2020 – Cleansed Chatlog

(07/11 13:31:05)Korov’ev: Shorah, and welcome to the 123rd All Guilds Meeting!

(07/11 13:31:06)SandDoone: excuse me please but I do not have sound

(07/11 13:31:10)spatialkay: what’s the exchange rate of dni dollars

(07/11 13:31:13)SandDoone: how do I turn it on in here

(07/11 13:31:20)Korov’ev: there is no sound 🙂

(07/11 13:31:25)Kayara puts coin in mikrodrone, menuevers drone 10cm above Korovevs head, releases coin

(07/11 13:31:26)shokhootahn Rehn stopped at the D’ni exchange, first, and traded in is pradnuretee for quarters

(07/11 13:31:26)TikiBear: sshh

(07/11 13:31:32)Korov’ev: In the D’ni calendar today is Leesahn 8, 9676, and the time is 4:01:21.

(07/11 13:31:34)SandDoone: LOL oh

(07/11 13:31:42)Korov’ev: If there’s anyone new: welcome to the Cavern! You picked the best time to visit 🙂

(07/11 13:31:54)Korov’ev: or back from a long time ago!

(07/11 13:32:02)Korov’ev: As usual, I’ll remind you the 5 Meeting Rules:

(07/11 13:32:08)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.

(07/11 13:32:14)Mateus: back from a long time ago, lol

(07/11 13:32:22)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.

(07/11 13:32:30)Korov’ev: 3. Speakers, please indicate when you are done speaking and ready for questions, and when you’re ready for the next question.

(07/11 13:32:36)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.

(07/11 13:32:45)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:

(07/11 13:32:48)Tom(Samoth): and 6: Don’r feed the Bahro! They have a balanced diet!

(07/11 13:32:54)Korov’ev: Of course, you can start your own chatlog with “/startlog”.

(07/11 13:33:13)Korov’ev: As you may have noticed, we moved the Meeting half an hour to make space for the Cavern Tour.

(07/11 13:33:18)CT Hostess Susa’n thanks you very much!

(07/11 13:33:20)spatialkay: thx

(07/11 13:33:23)Korov’ev: Let’s hear how it went from Susa’n!

(07/11 13:33:38)TikiBear: yay

(07/11 13:33:39)SandDoone: clap

(07/11 13:33:40)CT Hostess Susa’n: yes!

(07/11 13:33:57)CT Hostess Susa’n: We at the Cavern Tours greatly appreciated GoMe postponing the AGM for us!

(07/11 13:34:18)CT Hostess Susa’n: we held our tour this morning from 10:30 KI time to about 12:30 KI time

(07/11 13:34:27)CT Hostess Susa’n: the tour was great (I think)!

(07/11 13:34:31)Briggs: We loved it!

(07/11 13:34:53)CT Hostess Susa’n: the second Saturday of each month we hold a walking tour of every Age in MOULa

(07/11 13:35:09)CT Hostess Susa’n: Larry LeDeay is our host and he livestreams the tour on …

(07/11 13:35:16)CT Hostess Susa’n: 1.,

(07/11 13:35:27)CT Hostess Susa’n: 2. YouTube (channel Larry Fontenot), and …

(07/11 13:35:32)CT Hostess Susa’n: 3. Facebook!

(07/11 13:35:52)CT Hostess Susa’n: the tours begin at 11:00 KI time. We meet in Cavern Tour’s Hood.

(07/11 13:36:17)CT Hostess Susa’n: Unfortunately, the Hood is STILL borked and does not appear in Public Links UNLESS it is occupied.

(07/11 13:36:38)CT Hostess Susa’n: I tried to ask Cyan to fix the Hood but they believe it’s functioning as it’s supposed to

(07/11 13:36:40)CT Hostess Susa’n says DOH!

(07/11 13:37:06)CT Hostess Susa’n: and so if you need an invitation to the Hood I can send you one; just PM me after this speech

(07/11 13:37:25)CT Hostess Susa’n: the next tour will be Saturday, August 8, at 11:00 Ki time.

(07/11 13:37:39)EthanEver wants you to call

(07/11 13:37:40)CT Hostess Susa’n: Mirphak provides special effects for us.

(07/11 13:37:51)CT Hostess Susa’n: We can visit places in each Age you may have never seen!

(07/11 13:37:59)CT Hostess Susa’n: (Like we did this morning.)

(07/11 13:38:13)CT Hostess Susa’n: Larry also shows us pictures and videos via twitch.

(07/11 13:38:19)CT Hostess Susa’n: Any questions?

(07/11 13:38:22)CT Hostess Susa’n looks around for a bit

(07/11 13:38:40)Korov’ev: that’s during Virtual Mysterium, right?

(07/11 13:38:48)CT Hostess Susa’n: um ….

(07/11 13:38:50)CT Hostess Susa’n: is it?

(07/11 13:38:55)Korov’ev: yes

(07/11 13:39:01)CT Hostess Susa’n: oops

(07/11 13:39:15)CT Hostess Susa’n: I will discuss changing the day or time with Larry and Mirphak

(07/11 13:39:26)Claidi Song: Big Thanks to Larry, Susa’n and Mirphak for great tours!!!

(07/11 13:39:33)CT Hostess Susa’n: any changes to the next tour will be announced in Cavern Tour’s Hood and in GoMe

(07/11 13:39:41)CT Hostess Susa’n: aw shucks thank you Claidi

(07/11 13:39:49)spatialkay: thx

(07/11 13:39:54)Korov’ev: the AGM may move at that time, if we can agree on a connection with the convetion 🙂

(07/11 13:39:54)CT Hostess Susa’n: we hope to see you next month!

(07/11 13:40:02)CT Hostess Susa’n: ok

(07/11 13:40:09)CT Hostess Susa’n: we will be in touch with each other

(07/11 13:40:14)Korov’ev: re!

(07/11 13:40:17)Korov’ev: sure!

(07/11 13:40:22)Korov’ev: Thank you Susa’n!

(07/11 13:40:28)TikiBear: yay

(07/11 13:40:32)CT Hostess Susa’n: Perhaps the CT can be made part of the Virtual Mysterium!

(07/11 13:40:41)Briggs: That’d be very cool

(07/11 13:40:48)Korov’ev: Now, an open source anniversary!

(07/11 13:40:50)CT Hostess Susa’n: (good idea, Mirphak)

(07/11 13:40:55)Claidi Song: Very Cool!!!

(07/11 13:40:57)Korov’ev: There are news about Korman, on a special day. Let’s hear it from Hoikas!

(07/11 13:41:06)TikiBear: yay

(07/11 13:41:13)Eternal Seeker: clap

(07/11 13:41:18)Adam {Hoikas} rumbles forward

(07/11 13:41:28)Claidi Song sits on edge of seat

(07/11 13:41:36)Adam {Hoikas}: Doobes brought this to my attention this morning… Because I forget things.

(07/11 13:41:57)Adam {Hoikas}: Apparently it was 5 years ago today that the first version of Korman, the next generation age creation tool, was released.

(07/11 13:42:08)Emor D’ni Lap: wow

(07/11 13:42:13)Mirphak: wow

(07/11 13:42:24)Adam {Hoikas}: So, to celebrate, today we have unleashed Korman 0.10 to rule over all the ear… I mean, be the best plugin evar

(07/11 13:42:33)TikiBear: yay!

(07/11 13:42:46)Emor D’ni Lap: Milestone on a milestone day!

(07/11 13:43:01)Adam {Hoikas}: If you have visited Doobes’s Ages on the Minkata Shard, you should know that Korman 0.10 was developed in close cooperation with those Ages.

(07/11 13:43:17)Adam {Hoikas}: If you haven’t visited those Ages yet… What are you waiting for?????? DX

(07/11 13:43:27)Claidi Song starts to laugh

(07/11 13:43:53)Adam {Hoikas}: Korman 0.10 adds the ability to print dymamic decals, adds a simplified linking book modifier, and fixes at least 24 bugs.

(07/11 13:44:19)Adam {Hoikas}: In other news, at the last AGM, we mentioned that the H’uru URU client was moving toward adopting Python 3.

(07/11 13:44:23)Thumbs up from Mirphak

(07/11 13:44:39)aqua: If I’m not mistaken, it also adds the ability to launch the Age in Uru right from Blender! Super cool I think

(07/11 13:44:43)Adam {Hoikas}: Thanks to our dedicated testers… Uh, philipgr, Grandbad, Doobes, Emor D’ni Lap, Deledrius, and more…

(07/11 13:44:51)Adam {Hoikas}: This is on the list to merge soon.

(07/11 13:45:08)Adam {Hoikas}: We are waiting for Microsoft to accept a fix I had to submit to their package manager first :/

(07/11 13:45:17)Adam {Hoikas} grumbles about bugs

(07/11 13:45:52)Adam {Hoikas}: In other news, the long ruminated physics engine update is underway. Not much to say right now, but it’s in progress 🙂

(07/11 13:46:03)Adam {Hoikas}: That’s all I have. Any questions, Korov’ev?

(07/11 13:46:14)Korov’ev: none in queue. any?

(07/11 13:46:31)Korov’ev: Thank you Hoikas!

(07/11 13:46:36)Adam {Hoikas} slinks off

(07/11 13:46:37)Emor D’ni Lap trolls his kudos

(07/11 13:46:42)aqua: Awesome stuff

(07/11 13:46:48)CT Hostess Susa’n: when is the next AGM? August 1?

(07/11 13:47:29)Korov’ev: And speaking of fan Ages…

(07/11 13:47:37)Korov’ev: a Minkata testing shard update from Rarified!

(07/11 13:47:48)Emor D’ni Lap applauds

(07/11 13:47:51)rarified looks around and cringes

(07/11 13:47:57)EthanEver claps his head

(07/11 13:48:08)rarified waves hello

(07/11 13:48:14)Mateus waves hello

(07/11 13:48:18)rarified: Shorah both new and oldtimers!

(07/11 13:48:19)SandDoone waves hello

(07/11 13:48:20)philipgr waves hello

(07/11 13:48:25)Tom(Samoth): Hi!

(07/11 13:48:37)rarified: Well… we’re there.

(07/11 13:49:09)rarified: Fan ages were placed on Minkata over the last couple of weeks, and almost all of the bugs have been quashed.

(07/11 13:49:35)rarified: We had a wonderful tour of Doobes’ ages with good participation.

(07/11 13:49:58)rarified: And … which order does it go? What, where, when, why?

(07/11 13:50:31)rarified: The ages on Minkata are ready to be released to MOULa.

(07/11 13:50:44)Briggs: YES

(07/11 13:50:50)philipgr: Yay

(07/11 13:50:56)rarified: There is one persistant bug in the client that I want killed before shipping the bundle off to Chogon.

(07/11 13:51:16)TikiBear nods

(07/11 13:51:26)rarified: I’ve been corresponding with him, and he indicates he would rather take a large update less frequently

(07/11 13:51:34)rarified: than a series of small updates.

(07/11 13:52:07)rarified: I speculate, but haven’t been told, that is due to limited resources. Including a somewhat shrunken CAVCON.

(07/11 13:52:32)rarified: So in keeping with that request, I want to kill bugs that prevent game play, as this bug can.

(07/11 13:52:59)rarified: There are other bugs that appear when you leave the game, but don’t stop you in the middle of things.

(07/11 13:53:11)rarified: Those bugs I think we can tolerate for a while on MOULa.

(07/11 13:53:34)rarified: So… That’s one reason Adam hates bugs. They get in your mouth and you can’t breath.

(07/11 13:53:56)Briggs starts to laugh

(07/11 13:54:10)Tehlrov K’hris: yuk

(07/11 13:54:16)rarified: When? I expect by the next AGM, it’s likely the new ages will be present on MOULa.

(07/11 13:54:39)rarified: I’ve heard several discussions about how to “release” the ages, with either in-character or

(07/11 13:54:51)CT Hostess Susa’n: mentioned 14:00 story just inc ase

(07/11 13:55:00)CT Hostess Susa’n: oops

(07/11 13:55:09)rarified: out-of-character events. And there is of course a desire to have Cyantists present.

(07/11 13:55:25)rarified: That, if it is being worked out, is outside of my view.

(07/11 13:55:56)rarified: But briefly, I want to say thank you to dedicated developers and testers who went through

(07/11 13:56:10)rarified: a lot of hoops to get us here.

(07/11 13:56:57)Deledrius: So many hoops.

(07/11 13:57:05)Briggs: I live for hoops

(07/11 13:57:17)rarified: So, rather than rattle on, I’ll stop there. My brain is still dripping with debugging noodles and bugs.

(07/11 13:57:23)rarified: Questions?

(07/11 13:57:29)Korov’ev: Our next question is from Lutra.

(07/11 13:57:29)Korov’ev: [Lutra] What is the nature of this major bug that rarified is talking about?

(07/11 13:58:07)rarified: It manifests itself by a crash in the middle of doing something (such as seeking markers). And drops you

(07/11 13:58:30)rarified: out of the game. It’s difficult because it doesn’t produce the normal diagnostic information

(07/11 13:58:35)JulyFT: hi

(07/11 13:58:49)rarified: that the client does when it crashes (and even that is … wanting).

(07/11 13:58:56)JulyFT: dumb question, but what is this meeting?

(07/11 13:59:08)Korov’ev: Our next question is from Tom(Samoth).

(07/11 13:59:08)Korov’ev: [Tom(Samoth)] How these fan Ages will become accessible here?

(07/11 13:59:13)rarified: Adam has suggested a change to make debugging it easier, but it still will need to be reproduced.

(07/11 13:59:54)rarified: @Tom — I’m going to leave that to the event organizers 😉 The “new” method is a temporary

(07/11 14:00:17)rarified: mechanism, as artists and developers work an a more sophisticated link method.

(07/11 14:00:39)Tom(Samoth): So, you have no idea?

(07/11 14:00:44)rarified: It won’t however, require you to be an expert.

(07/11 14:01:05)rarified: Yes, I know, but I think it is more for the artists to do the “reveal”.

(07/11 14:01:24)Korov’ev: Our next question is from aqua.

(07/11 14:01:24)Korov’ev: [aqua] I’ve visited the new Ages on Gehn without these issues, can you shed light on why moving it to MOULa produces bugs?

(07/11 14:02:10)rarified: Because we (OpenUru/Minkata) and H’uru/Gehn had differing goals for a long time, and because of those

(07/11 14:02:33)rarified: goals, the MOULa client was not kept up to the bleeding edge of the improvements on Gehn.

(07/11 14:03:04)rarified: Many of those conflicts are either resolving or no longer present, so we will move in the direction

(07/11 14:03:23)rarified: ofl having most if not all Gehn features in MOULa in the future.

(07/11 14:03:44)rarified: My efforts this year have focussed on getting fan Ages to MOULa for the first time.

(07/11 14:03:53)rarified: And that is where we are.

(07/11 14:03:58)Korov’ev: Our next question is from Deledrius.

(07/11 14:03:58)Korov’ev: [Deledrius] How will the discussion be held on how to integrate things into MOULa? Who are the organizers?

(07/11 14:04:25)JulyFT: do I have to submit questions, or can I just ask?

(07/11 14:04:29)rarified pauses to think…

(07/11 14:04:38)Korov’ev: better to send them to me

(07/11 14:04:50)Adam {Hoikas}: you can PM questions to Korov’ev, just be sure it has a ? somewhere in the text

(07/11 14:04:54)Korov’ev: but just one more, we’ll need to move on then 😉

(07/11 14:05:18)rarified: I don’t know whether such a discussion would be better held in real time (i.e. in game, chat, etc)

(07/11 14:05:49)rarified: or if it would benefit from the time it takes to write thoughts down in a forum discussion.

(07/11 14:06:12)rarified: There is already several OpenUru forum threads related to this (as I’ve been reminded recently)

(07/11 14:06:42)rarified: and a discussion like that will likely take a fair amount of effort on all parties.

(07/11 14:07:01)Emor D’ni Lap: Last /sit

(07/11 14:07:02)Korov’ev: unfortunately, the forum is also where the discussions tend to die 🙁

(07/11 14:07:22)rarified: I’d say those of you with strong opinions are already on Discord in the OpenUru server,

(07/11 14:07:28)Emor D’ni Lap: as they certainly do on Discord 🙁

(07/11 14:07:51)Deledrius: Specifically, my question was about the aforementioned Fan Age integration here.

(07/11 14:07:52)rarified: so we can try to set times and approaches there. And see how successful it is.

(07/11 14:08:10)Korov’ev: Our next question is from JulyFT.

(07/11 14:08:10)Korov’ev: [JulyFT] ? do we have a process for fixing or improving Cyan content?

(07/11 14:08:31)rarified: @Deledrius, then elaborate a little more, I don’t see what you’re looking for. @JulyFT I’ll get to you next.

(07/11 14:08:37)Christian Walther: You didn’t answer Deledrius’ second question. Are there people working on this already, or are you just assuming they will turn up?

(07/11 14:08:59)aqua: (if there are going to be new fan Ages in Uru by next AGM, then it seems like the question of how to integrate them should be tackled quite soon)

(07/11 14:09:40)rarified: Again, for me “integration” means giving a copy to Cyan, to install on the MOULa servers, once

(07/11 14:10:00)rarified: the items are working on Minkata and are acceptable to Cyan.

(07/11 14:10:17)rarified: Once they are handed to Cyan, Chogon will install them on the Cyan “Staging” server, and

(07/11 14:10:36)rarified: request a few people to visit and make sure the ages (and client) are working properly.

(07/11 14:11:00)rarified: After he hears from those people about problems or lack thereof, the files will be added to

(07/11 14:11:04)rarified: the MOULa server.

(07/11 14:11:31)rarified: Part of the “acceptable” criteria are things like “You can get to the new age by a set of steps

(07/11 14:11:50)rarified: you normally would encounter IC in the game today”.

(07/11 14:11:53)Deledrius: Where is that discussion about how players access the new Ages taking place, and who is involved?

(07/11 14:11:55)rarified: We have that.

(07/11 14:12:29)rarified: Oh @Deledrius, that. I have not organized anything. I know Chogon asked Doobes about

(07/11 14:12:42)Deledrius: Alright, thanks. 🙂

(07/11 14:12:52)rarified: what he prefered to do when the ages were available on MOULa. I didn’t see any

(07/11 14:13:17)rarified: other deeper discussion, and am presuming it will happen with me out of the loop.

(07/11 14:13:41)Tom(Samoth): There are still enough empty pedestals in MOULa to put a linking book on…

(07/11 14:13:54)rarified: @Judy…

(07/11 14:14:17)rarified: The new rules regarding Cyan content that came about at the beginning of the year

(07/11 14:14:40)rarified: open the door for alterations. The most common alteration I’ve been hearing about

(07/11 14:14:54)rarified: is fixing collision areas and improving textures.

(07/11 14:15:19)rarified: The altered Cyan assets would be considered the same way fan Ages are now.

(07/11 14:15:33)rarified: And we only have one example of pushing fan ages through right now.

(07/11 14:16:00)rarified: Other questions?

(07/11 14:16:01)Christian Walther: Well there were the KI fixes that went through already.

(07/11 14:16:10)Korov’ev: we should move on…

(07/11 14:16:21)Korov’ev: Thank you Rarified!

(07/11 14:16:39)rarified: Ok, thank you all. I hope the updates will re kindle exploration!

(07/11 14:16:40)rarified bows

(07/11 14:16:42)Mirphak: Thank you rarified

(07/11 14:17:08)Korov’ev: there were more questions, but we need to move on;

(07/11 14:17:17)Claidi Song starts to laugh

(07/11 14:17:22)Korov’ev: please PM the speakers for further disussions 🙂

(07/11 14:17:31)rarified: I can stay after AGM if you want to ask later.

(07/11 14:17:32)Korov’ev: Time for the usual Fan Age Touring Club update, from the Deep Island shard.

(07/11 14:17:40)Korov’ev: Recently we visited J’Kla’s Ages, like Enobmort; Boblishman’s Ages, like Sonavio; and we skied in Pre Swaltu, by Tolip Ydob 🙂

(07/11 14:17:57)Korov’ev: Tomorrow, we’ll visit a newly released Age by Semjay: Tovaht!

(07/11 14:18:24)Korov’ev: Then, it will be the turn of Jamey’s Ages, like Tsoidahl Sheegahtee;

(07/11 14:18:24)Adam {Hoikas}: hmmm…. so the sliding ground DOES have a use XD

(07/11 14:18:34)Korov’ev: then it will be more Ages from early 2009, like Terrati Lab, Hayal, The Maze, Wianeroy, Soundgarden.

(07/11 14:18:41)philipgr: Very nice age. beautifully done 🙂

(07/11 14:18:47)Korov’ev: The expeditions are at 11:00 KIT, in the shard Hood (you can get there quickly with “/hood”).

(07/11 14:18:54)Korov’ev: There’s also a (mute) stream:

(07/11 14:19:04)Korov’ev: After the tour, at 14:00 KIT, it will be a good time for Door Runs on fan shards, on rotation 😉

(07/11 14:19:19)Korov’ev: And now, the monthly update from r’Tayrtahn, aka Shokhootahn Rehn!

(07/11 14:19:35)Emor D’ni Lap applauds

(07/11 14:19:59)Korov’ev: Rehn?

(07/11 14:20:08)Korov’ev: oh, there he is 🙂

(07/11 14:20:31)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.

(07/11 14:20:47)shokhootahn Rehn: First, the language classes…

(07/11 14:21:00)shokhootahn Rehn: I am still putting things away and finding forever homes for everything after my recent move. As a result, I am reluctant to add daytime classes until further notice. They *should* be able to return sometime in the fall. If someone needs a daytime slot, contact me and we will work something out. Night time classes, however, are unaffected.

(07/11 14:21:31)shokhootahn Rehn: There are evening classes avaible on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday nights, starting at either 20:00 KI time or 21:00 KI time, depending on the student’s schedule. Contact me by PM to set up a day and a time.

(07/11 14:21:49)shokhootahn Rehn: As always, current students can find last-minute updates to class times on the left-hand imager.

(07/11 14:22:11)shokhootahn Rehn: Last time, I announced that there were two students taking the classes: both were taking lesson 6.

(07/11 14:22:25)shokhootahn Rehn: One student is now working on thier final exam.

(07/11 14:22:40)shokhootahn Rehn: The Guild of Instructors’ Hood will be open and public unless a class is in session. I will announce the availability of daytime classes here and on the Hood imager when they are ready to resume.

(07/11 14:23:13)shokhootahn Rehn: Are there any questions? Typing is slow on this PC so please be patient for my response. 🙂

(07/11 14:23:33)Korov’ev: none in queue. any?

(07/11 14:23:52)shokhootahn Rehn: Moving on…

(07/11 14:24:20)shokhootahn Rehn: The second announcement is about r’Taytahn’s Story Night.

(07/11 14:24:50)shokhootahn Rehn: Story Night – Europe is now at the same stage of the history as is original Story Night.

(07/11 14:25:15)shokhootahn Rehn: We will be finishing the story arc of the D’ni kings and and learn about the years between king Kerath’s death and the start of the Story of The Fall as told in the Myst book, Book of Ti’Ana.

(07/11 14:25:40)shokhootahn Rehn: Story Night is held in the public neighborhood of Tsahno’s Hood every Saturday.

(07/11 14:26:04)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.

(07/11 14:26:21)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.

(07/11 14:26:52)shokhootahn Rehn: (today, it will be later lol)

(07/11 14:27:03)Korov’ev: yeah, sorry 😀

(07/11 14:27:08)shokhootahn Rehn: I also post changes on the left-hand imager in the hood.

(07/11 14:27:22)shokhootahn Rehn: np Kor 🙂

(07/11 14:27:37)shokhootahn Rehn: Due to the pandemic, I will not be traveling, much, for the foreseeable future. As a result, times for both Story Nights will be unaffected by traveling. However, they are affected by power outages due to thunderstorms… which, unfortunately, ’tis always the season. Should this be the case, I will try to aprise one or two of my regular audience members of the situation so they can spread the news. 🙂

(07/11 14:28:13)shokhootahn Rehn: The stories are told using voice so you will need to have your speakers or headsets on.

(07/11 14:28:27)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.

(07/11 14:29:01)shokhootahn Rehn: YOU *MUST* INCLUDE YOUR KI NUMBER IN THE BODY OF THE MAIL TO BE ADDED! (caps for emphasis, not for shouting)

(07/11 14:29:23)shokhootahn Rehn: Some have sent messages to be added but have not included their KI number so they were unable to be added.

(07/11 14:30:02)shokhootahn Rehn: Again, Story Night – Europe will begin 30 minutes after the conclusion of today’s AGM or at 14:00 KI time, whichever is later.

(07/11 14:32:41)shokhootahn Rehn: For today, only, SN-E will start at 15:00 KI regardless of the nuber of minutes after this AGM… unless the AGM lasts past 15:00 KI, at which point it will be canceled for today.

(07/11 14:32:57)Korov’ev: we’re almost done 😉

(07/11 14:33:02)shokhootahn Rehn: We hope to see you there!

(07/11 14:33:08)Korov’ev: Thank you, Rehn!

(07/11 14:33:21)shokhootahn Rehn: Any questions? Aain, typing is slow on this PC so please be patient for my response. 🙂

(07/11 14:33:52)shokhootahn Rehn: *again

(07/11 14:33:59)Korov’ev: none in queue

(07/11 14:34:08)shokhootahn Rehn bows

(07/11 14:34:14)Korov’ev: Thank you, Rehn!

(07/11 14:34:25)Mateus: clap

(07/11 14:34:34)Korov’ev: Time for some quick Cyan news:

(07/11 14:34:39)Korov’ev: A recent update about Firmament defined the delivery date od July 2020 as “wildly optimistic”;

(07/11 14:34:44)Korov’ev: a more likely date will be sometime in 2022.

(07/11 14:34:51)Korov’ev: The update also showcased two concept arts of [REDACTED].

(07/11 14:35:09)Korov’ev: On to concerning news…

(07/11 14:35:12)Korov’ev: June ended with a CavFunding of 54% (Cavcon 1.5), a population of 35,478 explorers, and 1210 unique visits.

(07/11 14:35:20)Korov’ev: There was no rollover from the last month, so the reserve is now empty.

(07/11 14:35:33)Kayara: Did you put the REDEACTED in there?

(07/11 14:35:38)Korov’ev: Like they say on Youtube, only a fraction of all explorers actually donate;

(07/11 14:35:44)Korov’ev: if every explorer who was online last month donated $1, the Cavern would be funded for over a month.

(07/11 14:35:56)MindWalker: They should’ve called it REDACTION to sound like a sequel to Obduction 😉

(07/11 14:36:01)Mateus: wow, im going to fund

(07/11 14:36:15)Korov’ev: We need a Cavon Party 😉
