D’ni Language Classes

R’Tayrtahn gave two updates, one for the D’ni Language Classes and one for the Story Nights.

Visitors are asked to not post pellet points into the hood imager: one of his former students and a close friend, Yutiel Yoshi, who passed away in 2018, is listed there. He has refrained from posting pellets to maintain her name at the top, as a form of memorial.

More about the D’ni Language Classes (click to expand)
  • Those who would like to attend the lessons should contact Rehn via PM or KImail (KI# 80428), or on Discord (r’Tayrtahn#1317).
  • The Guild of Instructors’ Hood will be open and public unless a class is in session. Classes are individual.
  • There will be no daytime openings for the next two months, as r’Tayrtahn is moving and his daytime hours are spent packing;
  • evening openings are on Monday to Friday, at 20:0021:00 or 22:00 KIT, depending on the student’s schedule.
  • Daytime availability is subject to change with little or no notice. Last-minute changes to class times will be announced via Magic Bot (KI #27527) or Mimi Bot (KI #71459); to be notified, add both as buddies, then PM them “advert”.

R’Tayrtahn’s Story Nights

Story Night Europe and Original Story Night are at the fifth story of the second human restoration of the Cavern, the third attempt overall. There will be no story on March 30 – the weekend of the major part of the move!

Eventually they will cover all of the books and games, as well as the three human attempts at the restoration of D’ni, and the bi-annual Bahro Glyph Tour.

They will also cover the five-part chapter play “Jae’s Journey“, written by explorer Janai and posted to the forums in 2008; if anyone is still in contact with her, please let her know that her story is about to be performed, probably on April 6 this year, and that she is welcome to attend.

R’Tayrtahn records videos of the sessions (via an avatar named “I’m a bot, do not message”), that he will eventually upload to his YouTube channelBe careful if you PM r’Tay or the bot during the events, as messages will be visible in the videos 😉

Videos now also come with auto translated captions in French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Polish, Portuguese and Spanish. Automatic translation often has trouble with words like “D’ni” or “linking books”, so your mileage may vary 😉

More about the Story Nights (click to expand)
  • Story Nights are held in Tsahno’s Hood every Saturday, gathering at the fountain at around 23:00 KIT, with the story starting at about 23:30 KIT.
  • For Story Nights – Europe, the gatherings are on Saturday starting at 13:30 KIT, with the story starting at about 14:00 KIT.
  • On All Guilds Meeting days, the event will begin at 14:00 KIT or 30 minutes after the meeting, whichever is later.
  • The stories are told using voice chat, so you will need to have your speakers, headphones or KI devices on. If you would like a reminder, please send r’Tayrtahn (KI# 58324) a KImail with your KI number included in the text, so that he can add you to his buddies list.


☛ The Guild of Writers released a new version of the age exporting tool Korman. You can read more in our dedicated post.

☛ In March, the Fan Age Expeditions in Deep Island will complete the exploration of the educational series Geologica, by Ametist & Metabasalt. Then, they will explore the puzzle age of Oolbahnneea, by Wodan, the whimsical chain-letter age Rell-too, and a few age by Jamey including Tsoidahl Sheegahtee and Writers’ Niche.

☛ Cyan’s decision to replace the DVD for a GOG code in the physical rewards for Firmament has proven controversial; until March 22, Cyan is offering to organize returning your rewards for a refund.

And that was it for this month. Please consider donating to keep the Cavern open!

January ended with the CavFunding at 76% (CavCon 2.7) and the reserve at 600%, with no extra expenses.

The next All Guilds Meeting is planned for Saturday, April 6, 2024 (Leenovoo 18) at 13:00 KIT.

Until then!
