Please refrain from moving around during the meeting…

Marie Sutherland:
Good morning! Sorry for the last minute change of venue
Gadren:
Oh, and if we could relegate chat to private messages, that would be great. :)
Marie Sutherland:
We are very excited in the progress that we have been able to make this past year…
Marie Sutherland:
even though much if it is hard to notice here in the cavern.
Erik:
Shorah
Marie Sutherland:
We are making the final preparations for opening the cavern once again
Marie Sutherland:
It is a very exciting time for all of us
Marie Sutherland:
Unfortunately, with the delay in getting started, our time is very short, so let’s move right on to questions.
Gadren:
Alright, everyone, please PM me with “QUESTION” to get on the queue.
Gadren:
Arthur, you’re up first
Reverend Vader:
Question
Gadren:
And please have your question ready to ask right as I call on you, thank you
Gadren:
OK…I’m not getting a response from Arthur, so I’ll move on down…Nyrph?
Nyrphame Danilaise:
Can you give us some idea as to the specific dangers that we might be facing this time around -anything special we should be aware of?
Marie Sutherland:
Things have changed a bit, but we wouldn’t open it if we didn’t think it was relatively safe.
Marie Sutherland:

Gadren:
Rev Vader, you’re up
Dr. Kodama:
Vader…
Gadren:
OK, rev vader is asking about the whereabouts of dr. watson and what his role will be in the restoration!
Gadren:
he PM’ed me by accident :)
Marie Sutherland:
Unfortunately, we still have not received any word from Dr. Watson.
Marie Sutherland:
We still hold out hope that he will return, but there are no guarantees.
Dr. Kodama:
He’s probably in Maui.
Marie Sutherland:

Gadren:
L’lee, you’re up next
L’lee:
Does the DRC have any ETA or timetable you can give us for the reopening of the cavern and other outlying ages?
Marie Sutherland:
We’ve continued to work behind the scenes, and the cavern will be reopened in the very near future.
Marie Sutherland:

Gadren:
Kelm asks what parts of the city you hope to focus on first
Gadren:
(Heh, they’re all kind of the same question ;))
Marie Sutherland:
there are some interiors that are being worked on, but there is no timeframe that’s set.
Gadren:
Kurtis, you’re up!
Kurtis:
How much of a presence can we expect to see from the DRC in cavern this time around?
Marie Sutherland:
We are still working with a very limited staff, so things move slowly.
Marie Sutherland:
We’ve been working mostly behind the scenes since returning to the cavern about a year ago.
Gadren:
Oh, and for those who are asking multiple questions, I’m letting others have an oppurtunity to ask first ;)
Marie Sutherland:
That will be changing in the near future.
Marie Sutherland:
next
Gadren:
Ural?
Ural:
What ages/ areas are we going to see??
Dr. Kodama:
what the…
Marie Sutherland:
There won’t be new Ages immediately…

[Suddenly a terrifying Bahro scream was heard throughout D’ni and the Ages, and - without warning - all explorers were linked to their Reltos…]
