Brian Fioca:

Daedalus:

Brian Fioca:
she’s dangerous
Brian Fioca:
very
Douglas Sharper:
really?
Brian Fioca:
well
Pehpsee:
hi! Mr. Sharper
Brian Fioca:
good or bad
Douglas Sharper:
She’s requesting an interview.
Brian Fioca:
not sure
Daedalus:
she claims to be neutral
Daedalus:
yes
Douglas Sharper:
Hello Pehpsee
Douglas Sharper:
I don’t think we’ve ever met.
Brian Fioca:
she wants her own part in this
Daedalus:
i was speaking with her about it before i rushed here
Pehpsee:
hi! Daed, Brian!!
Brian Fioca:
she’s upset that she got no recognition from her help in the city
Douglas Sharper:
Have you seen the private rooms?
Daedalus:
gave her my KI
Douglas Sharper:
Her help in the city?
Brian Fioca:
yes
Daedalus:
yes, doug
Douglas Sharper:
What?
Brian Fioca:
she claims she cleared space for you yesterday
Pehpsee:
i am going to go look now
Brian Fioca:
and wants political influence
Daedalus:
huh?
Douglas Sharper:
Ah…she may have.
Brian Fioca:
she did
Brian Fioca:
but
Brian Fioca:
she seems too eager for power
Daedalus:
hmm
Douglas Sharper:
Should I meet with her?
Brian Fioca:
yes, i think it would be good
Brian Fioca:
but,
Brian Fioca:
she doesn’t like you i’m afraid
Daedalus:
Sharper – how did you know that she wanted an interview?
Douglas Sharper:
She just asked me.
Brian Fioca:
she just wants your support i guess, for her “guild”
Daedalus:
she sent a letter to us about it
Douglas Sharper:
A letter?
Daedalus:
she claims to be neutral
Douglas Sharper:
Ugh.
Daedalus:
to the Echo, yes
Douglas Sharper:
I’m so tired of these neutral people.
Brian Fioca:
she could be a very strong leader, but… she’s very extremist, by her words
Brian Fioca:
i agree
Daedalus:
however
Douglas Sharper:
These peace lovers.
Daedalus:
hear this
Douglas Sharper:
I’m tried period right now.
Brian Fioca:
right
Daedalus:
her letter made it sound like she was against protesting
Brian Fioca:
i understand
Douglas Sharper:
There is too much going on.
Daedalus:
it sounded a bit pro-DRC
Daedalus:
very bizarre
Brian Fioca:
so, what should we focus on
Daedalus:
but i think her intentions are “neutral”, whatever that might mean.,..
Brian Fioca:
gathering support i suppose
Douglas Sharper:
Pehpse, what did you think?
Douglas Sharper:
Gathering suport. Prearing for the “wrath” of the DRC.
Brian Fioca:
got it
Daedalus:
“wrath” thats funny
Douglas Sharper:
Ha.
Pehpsee:
They are beautiful but I still don’t see quite how they work
Douglas Sharper:
We’ll show you.
Daedalus:
makes me wonder though
Brian Fioca:
by the way, can i try to get to your relto again? it didn’t work earlier
Douglas Sharper:
yes.
Brian Fioca:
hi pepsi
Douglas Sharper:
Pehpsee close the door.
Brian Fioca:
i’ll keep talking
Pehpsee:
hi! Brian
Brian Fioca:

Daedalus:
I remember when this used to be open.
Brian Fioca:
hi pepsi…
Brian Fioca:

Brian Fioca:
talking talking
Brian Fioca:

Daedalus:
hahahrara
Brian Fioca:

Daedalus laughs
Brian Fioca:

Heuris:

Brian Fioca:

Brian Fioca:

Brian Fioca:
hello Heuris, we’re demonstrating the private rooms
Heuris:
Hmmmm, must be something wrong with my KI :)
Brian Fioca:
you can’t hear anything on either side of the door
Daedalus:
it is interesting
Brian Fioca:
yes
Heuris:
all I get is blah blah blah…
Brian Fioca:
the DRC don’t want us here for some reason
Brian Fioca:
well, pepsi is in there
Brian Fioca:
and i was trying to see if she heard me
Daedalus:
i want to see the acoustics work in the hall though
Brian Fioca:
but she can’t
Daedalus:
she can’t hear us
Brian Fioca:
hi pepsi!!
Daedalus:
neither can sharper
Brian Fioca:
see?
Brian Fioca:
wonder what they’re talking about…
Heuris:
Does this place have a name?
Daedalus laughs
Brian Fioca:
see?
Brian Fioca:
quiet in there
Pehpsee:
hi!
Douglas Sharper:
Very.
Pehpsee waves
Brian Fioca:
relto? or do you still want to talk some more
Douglas Sharper:
Heuris, have we met/
Brian Fioca:
many people are noticing me more now
Brian Fioca:
wonder why
Heuris:
No, not until now
Brian Fioca:
hi Heuris
Douglas Sharper:
Katherian is currently trying to tell me she supports us.
Douglas Sharper:
She says to talk to you Brian.
Daedalus:
really?
Heuris:
it’s a pleasure
Brian Fioca:
invite her
Brian Fioca:
i’m interested in what she has to say
Heuris:
Thank you for the invitation to see this
Douglas Sharper:
Of course.
Brian Fioca:
the more the merrier, Heuris
Brian Fioca:
it’s important to see that there was no reason to block this area off
Brian Fioca:
other than to keep us from talking… privately
Heuris:
Are we to see more of these in neighborhoods in the future?
Daedalus:
Sharper – do you want me to post this in the news?
Daedalus:
that you opened this place…
Douglas Sharper:
Post what?
Douglas Sharper:
The opening of these rooms?
Brian Fioca:
yes
Daedalus:
I’m writing the daily news now
Douglas Sharper:
Hmmm…yes. Emphasize the safety of the rooms though.
Douglas Sharper:
Emphasize that you have no idea why they have been closed.
Daedalus:
not a problem
Pehpsee:
Yes they seem quite safe to me
Estrelle:
shorah all
Brian Fioca:
is katherian coming then?
Pehpsee:
hi! Est
Pehpsee waves
Heuris:
hello
Estrelle:
pepsi!!!!!
Douglas Sharper:
I assure you, they are very safe.
Daedalus:
can i get a shot of you for it, Doug?
Douglas Sharper:
Sure.
Daedalus:
smile.
Douglas Sharper:
I think the DRC knows anyway.
Douglas Sharper:
Consequences are coming regardless.
Brian Fioca:
it’s all for a good cause
Daedalus:
What do you think they’ll do?
Douglas Sharper:
Hello Estrelle. Have you heard anything of someone meeting Phil?
Douglas Sharper:
I don’t know what they will do.
Daedalus:
Kat is here
Katherian:
kat is also wondering where everyone is. lol
Pehpsee:
The egg room
Brian Fioca:
we’re in the room next to the classroom
Katherian waves
Pehpsee waves
Katherian:
so you got your rooms opened, eh?
Heuris waves
Katherian:
[impressed]
Douglas Sharper:
Yes.
Douglas Sharper:
As they should have been long ago by the DRC.
Brian Fioca:
you changed, kat
Katherian:
as I was about to say from my hood, Doug…Our #1 goal NEEDs to be at this moment in space & time, infiltrating their “secret island lair”. ASAP.
Brian Fioca:
what?
Katherian:
Changed? ^ ^
Daedalus:
interesting way of putting it
Estrelle:
so douglas what else do you have in store?
Douglas Sharper:
secret island lair?
Katherian:
my guess is they have moved a LOT of the historical record there.
Katherian:
you mentioned it in your journal, hon. heh
Douglas Sharper:
Whatever I can do.
Douglas Sharper:
Please don’t call me hon. You don’t know me.
Katherian:
sorry. hehe.
Katherian laughs
Katherian:
20 years of theatre. ;)
Katherian:
i call everyone hon.
Estrelle:
make a special relto ans lure all the DRC there and burn the book muahahahaha
Douglas Sharper:
Theatre?
Douglas Sharper:
Where?
Katherian nods her head
Katherian:
live theatre.
Brian Fioca:
anyway… this is getting off track
Katherian:
Started out in community theatre…
Brian Fioca:
there’s SO much going on
Brian Fioca:
really
Douglas Sharper:
Right Brian.
Katherian:
Then moved up to professional theatre at Cal State Los Angeles :)
Brian Fioca:
kath
Douglas Sharper:
I’m not sure I wnat to discuss in public though.
Brian Fioca:
ok
Brian Fioca waves
Douglas Sharper:
No offense to anyone here, but I’m not sure where you all stand.
Heuris:
in what way?
Katherian:
pretty :)
Pehpsee:
No offense taken…it’s not like you know me, you just met me
Daedalus:
heh
Katherian:
(btw) lol
Heuris:
am I overstaying my welcome?
Pehpsee:
And anyone can say they stand for something and not mean it
Katherian:
Gods…the ambiance of D’Ni just keeps…I dunno…
Katherian:
[semi-speechless…which some of you will realize is rare for me haha]
Douglas Sharper:
Heuris - no, no.
Heuris:
does this room have a name?
Douglas Sharper:
Tell me about yourself Heuris.
Pehpsee:
Keeps what Katherian?
Katherian:
Boggling my mind? lol
Katherian:
It’s so hard for me to accept/believe that D’Ni became so corrupt in the end when I look at all the beautiful things here. :(
Heuris:
Well, I was just minding my own business when i felt this call to new mexico…
Heuris:
and the next thing you know i’m here in the cavern
Heuris:
as far as sides go…
Douglas Sharper:
Yes/
Katherian nods her head
Heuris:
well, lets say i agree with what you wrote
Katherian shrugs
Douglas Sharper:
Katherian you don’t need to comment on everything said by someone.
Heuris:
and don’t really feel comfortable
Douglas Sharper:
Good Heuris.
Douglas Sharper:
I don’t need to know more.
Heuris:
with the DRC or Yeesha
Heuris:
I’m more pragmatic
Douglas Sharper:
You are welcome to peruse my neighborhood for now and report back to your friends what you see.
Pehpsee:
Keep reading, keep studying, keep listening and learning Heuris
Douglas Sharper:
A safe area open to all who visit and one not opened by the DRC for some reason.
Heuris:
Indeed, Pehpsee
Pehpsee:
hi! Ash
Katherian:
[smile at everyone]
Brian Fioca:
what did i miss?
Katherian:
god whatever that egg is…
Katherian:
it’s breathtaking.
Douglas Sharper:
We’re gettomg qiote a number of visitors.
Brian Fioca:
yeah
Pehpsee:
mr. Sharper?
Douglas Sharper:
Yes/
Douglas Sharper:
What did you need to talk about V?
Vormaen:
Sharper, you might not think me anyone important, but I must speak my peace
Douglas Sharper:
Go ahead.
Vormaen:
I represent a lot of folk who do not know whom to trust, and I believe those people need a vocie and an ear
Douglas Sharper:
And?
Douglas Sharper:
Do you have any reason not to trust me?
Vormaen:
Many of those do not trust you, and I am here to find out your stance
Douglas Sharper:
Tell me why.
Douglas Sharper:
And I will try to answer.
Douglas Sharper:
But I am tired, so let’s get this going.
Vormaen:
Many speak of you hiding things from first the DRC, possibly using Phil in an unstable state, and take books that you found
Douglas Sharper:
What books have I taken?
Douglas Sharper:
What have I hidden from the DRC that should not have been hidden?
Vormaen:
It was reported you took books from the Pub
Douglas Sharper:
That’s a lie. Outright.
Vormaen:
The hunts
Douglas Sharper:
The hunt. One. To explore.
Douglas Sharper:
Isn’t that why you are here as well? To explore.
Vormaen:
Have you truly been “enlightened” from your journey with Phil?
Douglas Sharper:
Have I said I was?
Douglas Sharper:
I have learned things from my journey.
Vormaen:
I am here to explore, but what you and the DRC are doing is trying to split the populous
Douglas Sharper:
I am trying to get people who want to explore. the drc does not want us to. If that causes a split so be it.
Vormaen:
Is this not to discover…..are we here to learn, not hate?
Douglas Sharper:
We are to hate what is wrong.
Katherian:
The DRC doesn’t even want us down here.
Douglas Sharper:
Learn what is right.
Vormaen:
But no one wants a war, so to speak.
Douglas Sharper:
It doesn’t matter what they want. They have one.
Douglas Sharper:
There are two sides whether you like it or not. I”m sorry but I can’t change that.
Vormaen:
Would that go against Yeesha’s beliefs?
Douglas Sharper:
What part of her beliefs?
Douglas Sharper:
That pride and arrogance caused the fall?
Vormaen:
War is often about pride. Pride destroyed the D’ni
Douglas Sharper:
What would you have us do?
Douglas Sharper:
You seem to know the answers yourself.
Douglas Sharper:
Tell me.
Vormaen:
Well I would not have you lower yourself to a destuctive path
Douglas Sharper:
Destructive?
Douglas Sharper:
Breaking down a false barrier? Is that what you are referring to?
Vormaen:
It may start with tearing down barriers, but what of lives?
Vormaen:
Where next?
Douglas Sharper:
Exactly. Last time I checked the DRC was the one tearing apart lives. Phil’s.
Douglas Sharper:
I will fight that. If you call it war and disagree with me, so be it.
Douglas Sharper:
But I will not adopt a “sit here and hope everything is fine” attitude.
Vormaen:
Well, to most Phil was unstable… how are we to know that it was not in his best interest?
Vormaen:
How do we know you are being honest?
Douglas Sharper:
That is a sick statment.
Douglas Sharper:
Did you know PHil?
Douglas Sharper:
You do not know if I’m honest.
Vormaen:
When I last spoke to him, he was too….distant.
Douglas Sharper:
Distant equals unstable.
Vormaen:
That’s right, and I am not the only one.
Douglas Sharper:
Perhaps I should not be your friend.
Heuris:
Umm, guys, for the sake of the apparently ignorant, what happened to Phil?
Brian Fioca:
later Heuris
Vormaen:
Let’s say you seemed to be doing most of the speaking and leading for him
Brian Fioca:
we’ll fill you in
Katherian:
he was kidnapped by the DRC.
Douglas Sharper:
By your logic, if someone is distant, then the DRC can take them. Very good.
Douglas Sharper:
Very good.
Heuris:
k
Douglas Sharper:
What are you saying?
Vormaen:
That isnot what I am saying
Douglas Sharper:
Well it’s what you just argued.
Vormaen:
You say they did it for the wrong reasons, how do we know you aren’t lying?
Douglas Sharper:
Judge for yourself.
Katherian:
If that is the criterion for someone being taken away…then I should be next, I suspect. I have a chronic depressive disorder…And I have days where I don’t communicate well with others…weeks sometimes.
Vormaen:
I cannot, all of us are in the dark!
Douglas Sharper:
I knew Phil. The man was not unstable. Even if he was it’s no reason to take someone.
Douglas Sharper:
Unless you want to live in a place where an unstable man can be taken.
Douglas Sharper:
I do not.
Vormaen:
Ten I propose a meeting, with the masses present
Douglas Sharper:
A meeting for what?
Vormaen:
For your saftey
Douglas Sharper:
My safety?
Vormaen:
a meeting between you and the DRC
Douglas Sharper:
Ha!
Vormaen:
In public
Brian Fioca:
they’ll abduct him
Douglas Sharper:
You are a naive man.
Daedalus:
a debate?
Katherian:
Phil was taken in public, Vormaen.
Vormaen:
Not with everyone standing by
Katherian:
WITH everyone standing by. :-
Vormaen:
Was he not led out into the open?
Pehpsee:
People were standing by when Phil was taken.
Douglas Sharper:
I don’t think the DRC will debate me right now. They are somewhat angry
Brian Fioca:
what good will it do? why would they agree at this point
Katherian:
They have no reason to agree.
Katherian shrugs
Douglas Sharper:
And I can tell you the debate now.
Vormaen:
I do not know, but I am worried about the communtiy, screw the DRC for now
Douglas Sharper:
What are you worried about?
Douglas Sharper:
That there is tension?
Katherian:
Civil strife.
Douglas Sharper:
Welcome to life.
Douglas Sharper:
That there are sides?
Douglas Sharper:
Welcome to life.
Katherian:
I think is what Vormaen is trying to say.
Vormaen:
This is harming us, more than anything, the confusion of whom to trust
Douglas Sharper:
Welcome to life.
Douglas Sharper:
There are always choices and there will always be.
Douglas Sharper:
You must decide.
Vormaen:
Well This new world may end before it starts if this continues
Brian Fioca:
not if we can help it
Douglas Sharper:
It will end if we all agree with the DRC.
Douglas Sharper:
Now I have enjoyed the conversation but I have had a long day and am tired.
Katherian:
That’s a bit extreme, don’t you think? After all “This World” existed for 10,000 years perfectly well without our presence. :-
Douglas Sharper:
We’ll have to continue some other time.
Katherian:
(that was directed to Vormaen by the way)
Vormaen:
Well right now I am the most opposed to choosing sides, and if you can tell me what really is going on, I will tell others
Pehpsee:
nite Mr. Sharper!!
Vormaen:
I will watch, and be listening,
Vormaen:
goodnight Sharper
Douglas Sharper:
If you agree with how the DRC is runing this cavern, you choose them. If you disagree, you choose the other.
Douglas Sharper:
It’s quite simple.
Katherian nods her head
Estrelle:
goodnight douglas
Douglas Sharper:
We’ll talk later.
Vormaen:
life is never that simple
Heuris:
Goodnight Mr. Sharper
Daedalus:
nite, Doug
Vormaen:
thank you
Pehpsee waves
Douglas Sharper:
It’s not simple because you are making it complicated V. Until next time..
Ashkar waves
Vormaen:
goodbye
Douglas Sharper:
Goodnight all.
