Nick White:
What’s up guys?
Lord Chaos:
Shorah, Nick.
Cycreim:
We were just talking about what Laxman said
Professor Askew:
Hello, there, Nick.
juk:
so what is happening here?
Nick White:
Delin is so much nicer.
Nick White:
In my opinion.
Cycreim:
It’s pretty rad
Professor Askew:
Yes, very nice here.
Nick White:
So what’s this rumor thing?
Professor Askew:
Rumor?
Tayrtahn:
that storm Laxman mentioned
Cycreim:
Oh right that thing
Professor Askew:
Oh, yes.
Nick White:
No the salary thing.
Cycreim:
Someone got a KI-mail that was purportedly sent to you asking about your salary
Tayrtahn:
oh yes
Professor Askew:
Salary?
Nick White:
Yeah someone sent me a KI mail asking me my salary?
Professor Askew:
Oh, that’s right.
Nick White:
Is that the rumor?
Lord Chaos:
No celery here, but I do see ferns.
CuzinJohn:
Hey gang!
Tayrtahn:
from what I read, YOU sent you a KI-mail asking that
Lord Chaos:
Hi, Cuzin.
Nick White:
Thanks Lord Chaos - I hope you’re peforming all weekend.
Kestr’l:
shorah all
juk:
hello
Tayrtahn:
but that’s probably a KI-glitch
Lord Chaos starts to laugh
Cycreim:
Yeah nobody knows who really sent it so we’re just filling in the blanks
Lord Chaos:
If I get paid…
Professor Askew:
Very strange…..
Cycreim:
Hey Cuz!
Nick White:
Klarren, whoever that is.
Professor Askew:
That’s who sent it?
Cycreim:
Klarren sent it to you?
CuzinJohn:
So… what brings us together this fine evening?
Cycreim:
That’s weird because apparently Klarren’s the dude that recieved it from you
Lord Chaos:
Probably the fact that this is one of the few access points to Eder Delin…
Professor Askew:
??
Kestr’l:
btw, nick, thanks for the Delin book in our neighborhood.
Nick White:
You bet.
Cycreim:
Hey Jean!
Tayrtahn:
Nick, care to comment on the origins of this odd KI-mail?
CuzinJohn:
Yeah… def bringing a little more foot traffic around
Kestr’l:
oh, and it’s an honor to meet you!
Cycreim:
LOL oh god everyone wants to know now :P
Professor Askew:
Any thoughts, Nick?
Nick White:
I said what I know.
Professor Askew:
Gotcha.
CuzinJohn:
heya MJ!
Nick White:
I assume it has someting to do with a conversation in the anti-DRC movement hood.
Cycreim:
Oh god
Arthur Kalnins:
Hmm…
Moiety Jean:
Hi everyone.
Thend waves hello
Nick White:
I told Sydney, I believe, she’d have to have some money to replace the DRC.
Professor Askew:
Hi, MJ!
Nick White:
One of thsoe deals.
William:
Hiya! I was hoping people were doing the puzzle. Heh.
Professor Askew:
Makes sense.
Cycreim:
Oh… right. I think they disbanded though.
Nick White:
Too bad.
Nick White:
I was looking forward to a raise.
Professor Askew:
Why so?
Professor Askew:
LOL
Cycreim:
LOL
Professor Askew laughs
Kal:
DRC members…get PAID?
Arthur Kalnins:
So what was this all about?
Kestr’l:
Nick, you do the translation, right?
Kal wants to join the DRC!
Nick White:
Right.
Professor Askew:
They have to eat!
Arthur Kalnins:
I am extremely confused.
Nick White:
You think I do this for fun?
Thend wants to get paid too
Nick White laughs at his own joke.
Cycreim:
Partly? :)
Kestr’l:
Have you heard from Sharper? He spoke highly of you in his journals
Arthur Kalnins gasps “They EAT?! HEADLINE OF THE YEAR!”
Nick White:
Yes.
Moiety Jean:
I hope you like your job at least a little. ;)
CuzinJohn:
hey… about the translations… I gotta know… what method have you used to determine the translations?
Nick White:
Of course.
Arthur Kalnins:
What news from Sharper?
Thend:
What kind of translator are you, Nick? Asking money for your services - sheesh
Nick White:
It’s just a matter of time until he’s back here.
CuzinJohn cheers
Arthur Kalnins:
Did he have any plans as to how long?
Kal:
I’m rather sick of waiting for things ot happen, to be honest
Kestr’l:
Will we get some cool jackets this time too?
Moiety Jean says DOH!
Kal:
has he mentioned any plans, other than visiting?
Thend wants a shirt with ‘UBER’ on it
Cycreim:
Does he have a KI yet? :)
Nick White:
Don’t know if things will be the same.
Nick White:
May be a little different than before.
Kal:
I would think…
Nick White:
It’s a different time.
Kal says DOH!
Cycreim:
Well things are pretty different all around.
Professor Askew:
I agree.
Kestr’l:
Do you think he will work on his pet rpoject, the pub?
Cycreim:
It’s probably a good thing.
Professor Askew:
Yes, Cyc.
Professor Askew:
Change is good.
Arthur Kalnins:
He was taken off that. Unless he’s been re-instated.
Nick White:
The Watcher’s Pub is already coming along…
Nick White:
I’ve been in there.
Nick White:
Fairly recently.
Professor Askew:
Nice.
Thend:
Nice
Tayrtahn:
oh really?
CuzinJohn:
A pub would be good… i need a drink… especially after this week…
Kal starts to laugh
William:
Definitely looking forward to that.
Moiety Jean:
It’ll be cool to see that.
Nick White:
It won’t be a pub like Sharper would have done though.
Cycreim:
Oh man I was reading about that… :P
Nick White:
But maybe he can find another.
Kestr’l:
The water’s pub is different from the Kahlo pub, right? Any plans to restore the pub by the docks?
Arthur Kalnins:
Yes… this one will have books…
Kal:
you seem to be implying he’ll be working again.
Moiety Jean:
In a city this big, there ought to be a few. ;)
Nick White:
Not sure.
Nick White:
If he’ll be working.
Professor Askew:
Cate knows.
Cycreim:
Maybe we can put in a good word for him… :)
Nick White:
I think Cate likes the guy.
Kal:
if he IS working again, how does the Council feel about it?
CuzinJohn:
Character references… LOL
Professor Askew:
Hmp.
Cycreim:
Douglas Sharper: hard working, VERY trustworthy :)
Moiety Jean:
They both like to get things done.
Thend:
I think Sharper and Cate will get along famously
Kestr’l:
I could see that
Lord Chaos:
Yes, MJ… but whose agenda?
Kal:
their agendas seem to line up, I would think
CoyoteCreed:
Not if Cate’s a Colts fan.
Moiety Jean:
:)
Nick White:
True.
Professor Askew:
My thoughts, LC.
Cycreim:
lol
Thend:
Good question Askew ;)
Nick White:
Good point.
Thend:
I mean LC lol
Nick White:
I haven’t asked Cate who her favorite team is…
Kestr’l:
What sign is Sharper and Cate? I wonder fi they’ll but heads or get along…
Cycreim:
Somhow it’s hard to believe that they’d get along… maybe I just don’t know Sharper.
Professor Askew:
We’ll see….
Nick White:
We’ll see is right…
Arthur Kalnins:
Why does Cate like Sharper? She wants things done safely, I thought.
Lord Chaos:
Sharper gets along fine with those who see things his way.
Thend:
Sharper will find a way to get what he wants doen
Kal:
we have no way of knowing for sure, but I’m guessing she’s not going to mind him all thatmuch if she’s willing to let him down here again. Sharper’s opinion of Cate, however, is entirely unpredictable.
Moiety Jean:
How’d you first meet up with the DRC, Nick?
Nick White:
Through my sister-in-law.
Nick White:
She worked at the same firm as Engberg.
Kal:
who’s your brother?
Thend:
Which firm is that?
Nick White:
Not my real brother.
Nick White:
Wow, look at you guys given the journalistic approach here.
CoyoteCreed:
Your wife’s brother?
Professor Askew:
hehe
Moiety Jean:
:D I was just curious.
Kal:
what are your thoughts on recent Saudi oil price hikes?
CoyoteCreed:
Or…wat..Wife’s sister
Moiety Jean starts to laugh
Cycreim:
Have you been through the door yet, Nick? Looks like we’ve got enough to open it easily
Nick White:
Dude I’m not married.
Kal:
how do you feel about Bush’s administration?
Tayrtahn:
So, Delin still seems fairly clear… is the storm far off?
Thend:
Well, we do like puzzle-solving ;)
Professor Askew:
Sheesh.
Kestr’l:
Hey Nick, on a lighter note - Heroes, Lost, or both?
Nick White:
And if you see any single ladies, let them know I’m here.
CuzinJohn:
Lol
Arthur Kalnins:
I need some clarification on an issue, Nick. When will the DRC publish or post a paper on the cavern roof stability?
Cycreim says okay
Kal:
you’re looking at a few right now…
Thend:
Is Cate single, Nick?
Arthur Kalnins says DOH!
Moiety Jean:
Oh lord
Kal:
yeah, is Hillary Cli- I mean, Cate single?
Thend:
I wasn;’t asking for myself, Art, Nick’s the one looking lol
CuzinJohn:
Oh no you didn’t go there…
Kal:
why do I go there? Why?
Moiety Jean looks around for a bit
Nick White:
I can’t even comment on that.
Cycreim:
Why do I have this image of Cate opening the door and saying “Have a great date!”
Nick White:
A bit old for my taste.
Kal:
LOL
Thend starts to laugh
Moiety Jean:
haha, Cyc
Arthur Kalnins:
Anyhow.
Kestr’l chuckles
Arthur Kalnins:
Roof stability report? Is it coming out? If so, any times?
Cycreim:
Seriously though. We have more than enough to open the door.
Kal:
Arthur, a dead horse, my friend.
Lord Chaos:
Nick, are you still working on translating D’ni documents?
Tayrtahn:
Delin’s weather seems fairly normal… think we might see a storm soon or is it a ways off?
Kal:
Dead horse…
Arthur Kalnins:
Dead horse, but it stinks.
Cycreim:
Laxman didn’t say anything about a storm but
CoyoteCreed:
Yeah, but it will be hard to coordinate a door attempt with such intense conversation.
Kal:
they tend to. picking at them doesn’t make it better.
Thend:
Nick, what was the most surprising thing you ever found when translated?
Arthur Kalnins:
I want it cleaned up properly so it stops stinking
William:
I agree Coyote, that’s why i didn’t try to organize people to do it. hehe.
Nick White:
That’s a tough question.
Nick White:
Probably the coolest stuff is with the Unseen.
Nick White:
Pretty sweet.
CuzinJohn nods his head
Nick White:
Well guys, I gotta run.
Kestr’l:
You mean what we tuen into when we enter the Library ?
Cycreim:
Oh yeah!
Nick White:
Been good talking.
Kal:
seeya
Kestr’l:
:)
William:
Ah, safe travels!
Tayrtahn:
nice to talk to you
Thend:
Seeya Nick
Moiety Jean:
Wonder if that refers to the Bahro at all
Arthur Kalnins:
Please get the roof stability report out soon, Nick.
Cycreim:
Sorry about the crazy rumour stuff, Nick
CoyoteCreed:
Gotta run? Hit Caps Lock. Works for me.
CuzinJohn:
Thanks for visiting!
Tayrtahn salutes
Professor Askew:
Bye, Nick.
Moiety Jean:
ah well, see you again Nick.
Kal bows
Nick White:
Uh, don’t hold your breath for a roof report.
Nick White:
It’s not a big deal.
Cycreim:
This was cool. Especially after Laxman. He’s all business. :)
Kal:
THANK YOU
Nick White:
Hello Heaven.
(Heaven being a female explorer standing near Nick)
Kal:
THANK YOU GOD
Lord Chaos:
Ghaelen does a good Roof Report!
Arthur Kalnins:
Okay. That’s enough to know.
Tayrtahn starts to laugh
Kestr’l:
thanks, hope to see you again!
Arthur Kalnins:
If it’s not a big deal, good.
Thend:
lol LC
Nick White:
You single?
Kal:
geeze…
Thend starts to laugh
Kal:
take it easy, Stallion.
Arthur Kalnins rubs his temples
Tayrtahn looks the other way
Thend:
taking down eachother’s numbers lol
Nick White:
Just kidding folks.
Kal snots
Kal:
agh
Arthur Kalnins:
Ew
Nick White:
Settle down. Settle down.
Kal:
i hate my slow keyboard
CuzinJohn:
Suuuure you are… wink wink nudge nudge…
Moiety Jean grins
Kal hates typos with a passion
Cycreim flinches
Thend typos with a passion
Nick White:
I don’t think she heard me.
CoyoteCreed:
The Cavern really needs a tabloid to jump on stories like this one.
Kestr’l:
hey come back for a party sometime
Lord Chaos thinks we all learn to speak typo down here…
Nick White:
You know it.
Thend:
Palying coy maybe
Nick White:
I suppose.
Arthur Kalnins:
Since you’re still here, do you have a more firm date on when Sharper’s coming?
Kal:
NICK WHITE ENGAGES IN PASSIONATE AFFAIR WITH UNNAMED EXPLORER
Nick White:
Who wouldn’t want the chance to date a DRC translator?
Thend starts to laugh
Arthur Kalnins:
I don’t.
Professor Askew sighs
Nick White:
I can recite ancient D’ni prophecies to her.
Cycreim:
Sharper doesn’t believe in firm dates!
Tayrtahn raises hand
Thend:
Good grief, he been down the Cavern too long lol
Moiety Jean:
Art, it’s not going to be like that.
Lord Chaos:
Lady Chaos would be very interseted in a date…
Kal:
Thy love is like the thrill of a thousand linking books…
Nick White:
Alright… what am I doing?
Nick White:
Out of hand.
Cycreim:
You’re enjoying the party atmosphere?
Nick White:
I’m going to get busted by someone.
Tayrtahn:
snap out of it, Nick
Arthur Kalnins:
Telling me if you know when Sharper’s coming.
CoyoteCreed:
Okay…first annual DRC Bachelor Auction, date TBD.
Moiety Jean:
You’re getting ready to ditch this mess? lol
Nick White:
Talk to you guys later.
CuzinJohn:
Nah… you fit right in with this lot, Nick…
Nick White:
I’m out.
Cycreim:
We’re here every night, folks. Every. Night.
William:
I think you’re enjoying her lack of attention… somehow.
Thend:
Nick you are supposed to gossip, not be the subject of it
Arthur Kalnins:
Shorah, Nick.
Thend:
Seeya again Nick
Lord Chaos:
Come back in two weeks. We’ll have the Up On the Roof! Party!
Tayrtahn salutes
Nick White:
Still no word from her…
Nick White:
Man…
Nick White:
Shot down.
William:
Rejected. That’s harsh.
Kal hands Nick a tissue.
Thend roars with laughter
CuzinJohn:
dee-Nied…
Cycreim:
LOL
CoyoteCreed:
HEaven’s probably just taking her time.
Lord Chaos:
He got out in the Nick of time.
