Blue Max:
What do you mean don’t stand so close? I haven’t seen you at all in the past few minutes
Douglas Sharper:
Look cold Rivenchan.
Rivenchan:
(laughs) you’re afraid of crowds, Doug?
D’Airyair:
you have to find the goggles and look underwater
Rivenchan:
i’m always cold. besides, we’re in a cave - it’s warranted :P
Blue Max points
Rivenchan:
anyway.. you’ve probably known Shroomie longer than any of us have, have you noticed anything more about her? besides that she’s afraid of loud things?
jimmyjack:
they took a bunch of cones and barricades away for your debut
Douglas Sharper:
Of course.
Rivenchan:
Have you noticed anything more about her that you’d be willing to share with the group..? ^_^
Douglas Sharper:
What would you like to know?
Rivenchan:
any tips on how to lure her into the main lagoon?
Rivenchan:
or even, how to lure her to the spore machine?
Douglas Sharper:
She’s been scared lately. Maybe all the people. As I told a group yesterday I’m working on some ways to get her closer.
Veovis:
shorah tay this is beta tester Atrus
Douglas Sharper:
The pods are moving further out.
Douglas Sharper:
Migration maybe. Not sure.
Rivenchan:
wow, neat :) you think you’ll be studying it, or will you be too caught up in restoring your new pub?
Douglas Sharper:
A little of both Rivenchan.
Blue Max:
Hmmm… I’ve got an appointment on the surface, so I’ll make my way down in a bit. Thanks for the info DS!
Rivenchan:
Bye Blue ^_^
Moranda:
seems that the study of Shroomie could be full time job
Moranda:
By blue
Rivenchan:
What made you take up the pub restoration? Planning to instal a tv and turn it into a sports bar? ^_^
Douglas Sharper:
No, no. Explorer’s Pub.
Drew Kempa:
If anyone can here me. Move the barriers! We have been called here
Rivenchan:
Explorer’s pub? what will set it apart from the pub we already have here?
Douglas Sharper:
Maybe bring down some trophies from the surface.
Graphite:
shorah all
Rivenchan:
what kind of trophies do you have?
Veovis:
the barriers have been up for a realy LONG time even in the beta test!
YOL:
Shorah
Douglas Sharper:
Mr. Engberg. How goes it?
Rivenchan:
Greetings, Engberg ^_^
Rivenchan:
What kind of trophies do you have, Mr. Sharper? Hunting? sports?
Moranda:
HI Michael
Michael Engberg:
Hello everyone
Douglas Sharper:
Calmed down any yet Engberg?
Douglas Sharper:
Hunting.
Michael Engberg:
Sorry.. I was having KI problems..
Rivenchan:
What do you hunt usually?
Navra:
Hi Michael
Michael Engberg:
Douglas, Douglas.. when will you learn..
Douglas Sharper:
Ah, all sorts. Lions, Tigers, Bear, Elk. You name it.
Douglas Sharper:
What’s that Michael?
David:
i can’t wait to get into the city
Rivenchan:
Wow, i thought you needed special liscences to hunt that sort of thing
Graphite:
here
Tah:
Why is everyone else so quiet?
Douglas Sharper:
Nice of the DRC to finally show up. Glad they sent you Engberg.
Michael Engberg:
I’m always calm..,but we must follow rules..
Veovis:
dinno?
Tah:
Michael….so make new rules. Please
Rivenchan:
What rules in particular, Engberg? :)
Michael Engberg:
So.. talking about your “wild ” hunting stories?
NeoCelt:
hard to speak to 20 person ,but one …maybe
Douglas Sharper:
Just about the Explorer’s Pub.
Graphite:
erg… I just want to visit the library
Rivenchan:
What will make the Explorer’s pub different from the pub we have on Ae’gura?
Rivenchan:
Besides location, of course
Michael Engberg:
RivenChan.. just follow what the DRC asks.. and all will be safe
Rivenchan:
Engberg> in that case, could you recap me in what the DRC asks? :)
Tah:
Michael…I disagree. We can “look” and yet not spoil anything or harm ourselves
Michael Engberg:
How is the Pub coming.. I should came check it out soon..
Veovis:
ihavebeeneverywhere in this city… you cant harm your self!
Graphite:
when have you ever been able to harm yourself?
Tah:
Memi back! YEah
Rivenchan:
How is the pub coming along, Mr. Sharper? :)
Douglas Sharper:
Slowly.
Graphite:
Moranda Shorah!
Michael Engberg:
Rivenchan, just use DRC authorized linking books, stay away for unsafe spots.
Rivenchan:
have you had any restoration troubles?
Moranda:
Shoarah, Graphite
Graphite:
grr… they blocked off the bar too
Veovis:
someone fell through below the middle stairs
Michael Engberg:
Graphite.. it has happened..
Rivenchan:
Douglas, have you had any troubles restoring your pub? any insteresting discoveries?
Michael Engberg:
We opened the stairs today..
Michael Engberg:
Progress is moving a long nicely
Rivenchan:
Engberg> (laughs) we noticed.. you DRC folk have a cruel sense of humor :P
Moranda:
When can we expect something new……….the stairs don’t do much good without a destination
Rivenchan:
when do you think you’ll open up the main courtyard?
Michael Engberg:
That was humorous??
Drew Kempa:
Mr Engberg, what is the DRC stance on local wildlife… Namely, the incidents of Shroomie attack?
Tah:
Hello douglas. how do you lean like that
Drew Kempa:
Perhaps Douglas can comment?
Rivenchan:
I thought it was :P Renegade explorers had already found a way over the pylons blocking the stairs off - this was just making their exploration official
Rivenchan:
do you think this will become a common practice? Letting renegades have access to areas before they’re opened by the DRC?
Michael Engberg:
Shroomie attacks?
Tah:
ok….lets go on to next floor
Drew Kempa:
It has been rumoured…
Rivenchan:
There’s always the possibility
Tah:
HI dug
Michael Engberg:
Rivenchan.. just follow the DRC and be safe..
Moranda:
HI dug
Rivenchan:
Aw, shucks, but that’s no fun
Rivenchan:
Does the DRC not have a very sound insurance policy?
Tah:
Hello Michael. Why should we be “Safe
Rivenchan:
Welcome back Doug ^_^
Michael Engberg:
Fun? So is that why we are down here?
Douglas Sharper:
Thank you.
Rivenchan:
I suppose so, we’re not really allowed to help with the restoration yet, are we?
Rivenchan:
so what else is there but fun?
Tah:
Michael…no. I want to explore and take in the beauty.
Michael Engberg:
Hey everyone.. lets all go and destroy the cavern.. doesn’t that sound fun?
Rivenchan:
Maybe the cavern really was opened too quickly
Rivenchan:
lol ^_^
Tah:
Michael…just why would you think we would destroy it.
Moranda:
I am down here to explore and study this wonderous place, but am stymied by not having anywhere to go
Michael Engberg:
Listen to the rules and areas will be opened faster..
Drew Kempa:
Mr Sharper, are you still hunting local wildlife…?
Veovis:
shouts to all *Let us onece again have a sit in protest for them to open the reest of the age!*
Douglas Sharper:
Local? I try to respect the local wildlife as much as possible.
Michael Engberg:
Break the rules.. and well wait around for things to open.
Douglas Sharper:
And stay within DRC rules.
Tah:
Michael change the rules
Drew Kempa:
So you deny hunting the local wildlife of Teledahn?
Alex Rivadeneira:
Mr. Engberg, do you enjoy your job? :)
Michael Engberg:
Douglas.. they said shroomie attacks..
Gearogine:
I hate to keep asking but has anyone founf the realto islands?
Michael Engberg:
do you know about anything ?
Gearogine:
found
Douglas Sharper:
She can.
Alex Rivadeneira does a dance
Tah:
Michael….about what specifically
Douglas Sharper:
But you have to get very close.
Veovis:
everyone /sit
Michael Engberg:
Douglas.. should I came and check Teledahn?
Michael Engberg:
opps .. come..
Rivenchan:
I dont think you have much to worry about, Engberg
Tah:
onery aren’t you….
Douglas Sharper:
I wish you would come if that will help approve it.
Michael Engberg:
Tah.. who?
Douglas Sharper:
It looks pretty stupid for the DRC to not approve the Age when everyone is going there anyway.
Rivenchan:
With the number of explorers cavorting around, Shroomie’s gotten kinda scared, Doug and i think she might be hiding
Michael Engberg:
Doug we have had this talk..
Michael Engberg:
in a public forum please..
Tah:
Michael, you
Drew Kempa:
I’m sorry, but I’ve read Mr Sharper’s notes…
Michael Engberg:
please don’t talk about .. what the DRC has said..
Jared White:
Shorah, everyone. It’s good to be back in D’ni. Had to leave for a few weeks….
Douglas Sharper:
What the? You’ve read what notes?
Rivenchan:
What has the DRC said?
Jared White:
Sorry to interrupt, but it’s great to finally meet a couple of DRC members.
Michael Engberg:
Rivenchan.. can’t talk talk about it at this time..
Tah:
Michael….then change the rules and let us look…
Michael Engberg:
hello Jared
Rivenchan:
Why can’t you talk about it? is it classified?
Tah:
YOL hello, Northern Idaho for me
Michael Engberg:
Rivenchan .. yes..
Moranda:
Okay Michael, what about all the different agenda’s poeple of “power” seem to have down here? I has to be counterproductive to the restoration.
Rivenchan:
Is there a lot of classified material floating around the DRC?
Michael Engberg:
Tah, change 5 years of rules for some new people.. who think they should get special treatment?
Jared White:
California for me.
Tah:
Michael we are adults. WE are careful why not
Michael Engberg:
RivenCHan.. hope to release some of it soon..
Rivenchan:
(laughs) Have you had to change very many rules for us? If anything, it feels like cavern life has gotten stricter
Tah:
Michael…why not now. Rules can be changed
Michael Engberg:
Different agenda?
Tah:
MIchael LOOK at the people here. Do we look like we would do anything to hurt this place
Rivenchan:
What kind of materials do you hope to release?
Douglas Sharper:
I’ve heard Dr. K. proposing unclasifying some information. What do you think Engberg?
Rivenchan:
Dr. Kodama?? Wanting to UNclassify materials? are we talking about the same man here, lol?
Michael Engberg:
Doug, I think to much.. to soon..
Veovis:
what i would do for a kortrena right now!
Douglas Sharper:
Of course you do.
Veovis does a dance
Michael Engberg:
aww Douglas..
Rivenchan:
Doug, do you think the DRC should declassify more of it’s documents?
Alex Rivadeneira laughs
Rivenchan:
(by the way, are you alright with me calling you Doug?)
Douglas Sharper:
Yes. I hope Dr. K. can convince some of the others.
Rivenchan:
How do the others feel about it?
Douglas Sharper:
That’s fine.
Michael Engberg:
I think they should give out some documents..,but what Dr. K wants to give is way to much.
Douglas Sharper:
Ask Engberg how they feel.
Rivenchan:
what does Kodama want to give?
Tah:
Michael….we can handle it.
Tah:
Why is everyone so quiet?
orlando:
i was just wondering that myself
Douglas Sharper:
More Age information.
Rivenchan:
hehe, maybe i’ve lulled everyone to sleep with my boring questions
Veovis:
who here has read the myst books?
memiki:
maybe we just can’t hear them talking.
Tah:
Memi yep
Moranda:
well, I have come to the conclusion that barricades are for political safety and not personal safety. Same with keeping all this infomraiont classified. It is a ruse to ” keep all the nosey exploreres in line”
memiki:
Isn’t that what explorers do tho.
Michael Engberg:
most people reserved on the issue.
Nick_Yap:
Mind me… but heh… you guys are somewhat intimidating….
Veovis:
who remembers what is under the liberarry floor :-)
Moranda:
I do
Tah:
Michael….so many have already explored. It is pointless to keep us out
Veovis:
good… i cant wait to see that
Rivenchan:
Ah! good question! Did you find the book to Terahnee in the library, guys?
Rivenchan:
Or did Atrus remove it?
Drew Kempa:
Assuming the books are a true account…
Douglas Sharper:
This would be age information you haven’t heard yet. Ages whose names you have never heard.
Douglas Sharper:
Ages I’ve never heard.
Michael Engberg:
.. Dr K is talking to people.. We don’t know what we will do about that issue..
Veovis:
or i
Tah:
Douglas….someone has
Rivenchan:
So are you still finding lots of ages?
Michael Engberg:
Well got to go..
Michael Engberg:
bye
Drew Kempa:
Bye Michael
Rivenchan:
Aww, when do you think you’ll be dropping by again?
Douglas Sharper:
Tell everyone at the Council hi for me.
Tah:
GOodbye michael
Rivenchan:
Will you be staying, Doug?
Moranda:
Nice of you to stop by Michael, take care
Douglas Sharper:
I might go play some Heek actually.
Rivenchan:
Oh? Are you very good at it? ^_^
Moranda:
I’ll take you on in a game, Doug
Douglas Sharper:
Don’t know if I would say that.
Douglas Sharper:
Alright let’s go.
Moranda:
which hood?
Douglas Sharper:
I hope Engberg doens’t go whining to the DRC now.
Rivenchan:
(laughs) Does Engberg whine a lot?
Douglas Sharper:
I don’t think he liked me bringing up the proposal in front of you all.
Douglas Sharper:
Probably a bad move on my part.
Rivenchan:
Do you think you’ll get in trouble for it?
Moranda:
awe gotta push the envelope a little Doug
Tah:
sorry orland[
Douglas Sharper:
I agree. Just can’t too much. I don’t want my pub taken away.
Tah:
Douglas…..do you see how many of us are here and willing to explore
Moranda:
understand that,
Rivenchan:
Do they have a history of taking away projects from people they’re unhappy with?
Navra:
Not neccessarily Douglas, you have a lot of freinds behind you!
Drew Kempa:
You having renovations done in the pub?
Tah:
This is an amazing group of people
Douglas Sharper:
I’m somewhat of a special case. They usually don’t give projects to non-members.
Rivenchan:
How did you weasel your way in? ^_^
Douglas Sharper:
Ha! They don’t control those link stones friend.
Rivenchan:
(prepares to take notes ^_~)
Douglas Sharper:
They take them away - that’s about it.
Jared White:
I’m sorry, I think I missed some of this conversation. In a nutshell, what did you propose, Douglas?
Douglas Sharper:
I was early on enough. Knew some people. They trusted me.
Rivenchan:
How often do they assign people new areas to restore?
Douglas Sharper:
It’s Dr. K’s proposal. I only brought it up.
Douglas Sharper:
Fairly often. they have a lot going on - that’s what Dr. K. woud like to share with you all.
Rivenchan:
And which people did you know to get in?
Moranda:
For what its worth, I think Dr. K is on the right track
Douglas Sharper:
Well, it’s been fun but I should go.
Douglas Sharper:
I agree.
Rivenchan:
Are you still friends with those people now? you seem to be on shakey ground with the DRC, afterall
Jared White:
Thanks Douglas.
Douglas Sharper:
I’m going to play some Heek and head back to Teledahn.
Rivenchan:
Which neighborhood do you think you’ll play in? ^_^
Douglas Sharper:
We’re all on talking terms. I’m closer with some than others.
Drew Kempa:
Teledahn…
Douglas Sharper:
Hm, not sure. What’s a good one?
Moranda:
Greeters
Navra:
I think I’ll call it a night too. Goodnight everyone.
Tah:
Goodnight Navra
Moranda:
Night Navrah
Rivenchan:
Greeters is often crowded, though
Moranda:
yah…..MYst Island
Douglas Sharper:
I’ll try Myst Island. Talk to you all later.
