Sumatria:
do you have a medic going along for the just in case?
Nick White:
When would you like it put in the museum?
sil_oh_wet:
Did you catch wind that I was a little envious of Jazz and Heaven getting to spend the afternoon with you yesterday?
Sam Byard:
ASAP
Sam Byard:
now if possible
Lobo:
Are there animal problems in Doreno also?
Nick White:
I head that through the grapevine - that’s why I decided to stop by.
sil_oh_wet blushes
Myst’Aken:
How about midnight tonight
Sumatria:
how sweet of you
Lobo:
I apologize for my remarks.
Sharaya wants to know what Heaven has that us other girls don’t.
sil_oh_wet:
That was very nice of you to think of me when you have so much on your plate
Nick White:
What were your remarks?
Nick White:
I’m a nice guy.
Sumatria:
that is a real gentleman
Jared:
nice to meet you Nick
Lobo:
Oh, in defense of Sil
Nick White bows
peni:
good thinking Nick
Sam Byard:
would it be possible for dereno to be placed in the museum tonight ?
Lobo:
Nothing mean about you, really.
Nick White:
Rils hasn’t been around has he?
Nick White:
It would not be.
Nick White:
Sorry Sam.
Lehm:
i haven’t seenn him
sil_oh_wet:
I havn’t seen him
LdyDrgn:
He was around earlier
Myst’Aken:
Not here
Jared:
Haven’t seen him recently, sorry Nick
Sam Byard:
tomorrow even ?
Brayden:
Haven’t seen Rils, nope….
Nick White:
I’m thinking it’ll be tomorrow morning some time.
DocOlanA:
Have you set plans for an expedition into Negilahn?
Brayden:
Cool. Can’t wait to see it.
Sharaya:
Nick, does it bother you that Sharper is so condescending towards you?
Sam Byard:
nick this is important. IS there any suspicion that Rils has been kidnapped
Nick White:
Looking like the next few days.
Jared:
hope he didn’t get too close to the predator in question at Negilahn
PiperDriver:
Sound like a fun expedition. You need any bait? :)
Nick White laughs
sil_oh_wet:
Giggle
Nick White:
Not that I know of Sam.
Sam Byard:
because you and sharper are always looking for him and you never find him !
Granelda will go as bait
Nick White:
I saw him yesterday for a while.
Lobo:
Volunteering, PiperDriver
Sumatria:
do need a medic to go along?
Nick White:
We already have bait - that’s what me and Rils are for.
PiperDriver:
I was actually thinking about you Lobo :)
LdyDrgn:
Please keep me in mind if you find any reptiles
Sharaya laughs
Sumatria:
you never know someone may shoot themself in the foot…
Nick White:
Are you a medic?
Sumatria:
yes
DocOlanA:
On the one hand, I’m incredibly jealous. The explorer in me really wants to see Negilahn. On the other hand, best to let you guys handle the beastie.
Nick White:
Really?
Lehm:
what about hapless sidekick, need one of thoes?
Myst’Aken:
I have bandages in my closet
DocOlanA:
Just make sure you’re careful out there, Nick.
Lobo:
Sumatria is Search and Rescue
Sumatria:
emt in training
Sumatria:
and sar
peni:
i always have duct tape on hand
PiperDriver nods his head
Sharaya:
Lol
Myst’Aken:
And rope
Granelda used to train loins for a living
peni nods her head
Sharaya:
Loins? Hmmm.
peni:
loins sis?
PiperDriver:
lol
Jared:
i’m just good for my brain, nothing too physical
Lobo:
Whose loins?
Myst’Aken wonders about gran
Sharaya:
freudian slip I think
peni:
??
PiperDriver:
roflmbo
sil_oh_wet:
this may sound silly, but Jazz has a pic with you and your green go-tee, mind if I have one too?
Sam Byard:
is there any sign of predators in dereno ?
LdyDrgn:
I’ve asked Rils to let me know as well if he sees any there
Granelda:
so i cant spell i can handle large predators
Brayden:
What kind of wildlife is in Dereno, anyway?
Brayden:
If any.
Lobo:
Sumatria, you may need to revive Sil when she swoons.
peni:
yes she can
Sam Byard:
brayden, its underwater :)
Curty:
Hey donna:)
Sumatria:
I am on standby
DocOlanA:
Hey Nick, I have a somewhat unrelated question. Do the DRC have access to any old D’ni religious texts?
Myst’Aken gets ready for mouth to mouth
Nick White:
Yeah, we do.
DocOlanA:
Like the Yahvo equivilant of the Bible or Qu’ran or something?
PiperDriver will fight Myst for it :)
Brayden:
Oh is it? Wow, I love marine stuff. Now I really can’t wait.
DocOlanA:
Any chance that they can get translated sometime soon? We hardly know anything about the actual tenants of their religion, even though it was clear that people like Ri’neref were really into it.
Nick White:
Yeah, actually some of it is translated already.
DocOlanA:
Also how the other faiths, like the Tree and such, came into being.
sil_oh_wet:
well Nicks here lets party!!!
DocOlanA:
Really? Ever going to release it?
Nick White:
Yeah.
Sharaya:
Where has Cate been these days?
DocOlanA:
When?
Nick White:
Surface.
Sumatria:
I love to party!
Nick White:
And here.
sil_oh_wet:
Me too
Donna nods her head
Nick White:
Back and forth.
Nick White:
Busy.
peni:
party time!!
sil_oh_wet:
Hooty hoo
Sumatria cheers
sil_oh_wet cheers
DocOlanA:
Nick, any timetable on when we’ll see the religious texts?
Nick White:
Sorry Doc….
Lehm:
nick, any idea what kind of war sharper is referring to lately?
Shandi does a dance
Nick White:
What’s that?
Lobo:
She’d have better standing with the explorers if she made an occasional apprearance
Brayden:
I’ve still never met Cate.
Jared:
Nick, I had a question for you, have any copies of the Rehevkor been found?
sil_oh_wet:
I saw a picture of her once
Granelda wants to give her a hug
Nick White:
She knows that - she’s tryjng to raise money.
sil_oh_wet:
Oh - I have a picture - it looks like its out in the water in Teledahn – is it really?
White Rose:
Do you know how soon you, Rils and Sharper will be leaving
Nick White:
That’s pretty important too.
DocOlanA:
We’ve got a group, the KTD, that meets Sunday nights. We’ve been trying to learn about the D’ni culture and religion of the Ri’neref era, but it’s difficult with the paucity of source material.
Nick White:
Few days.
Nick White:
Jazz give you that?
Curty:
Nick, have you heard if we are going to get somemore of the city or City proper opened within half a year?
Nick White:
Really Doc?
DocOlanA:
That’s why we’re interested in translations, even partial ones, of D’ni religious texts.
Jared:
guess that’s a no on the Rehevkor
Nick White:
Wasn’t aware of that gropu.
DocOlanA:
Yeah. It started three Sundays ago as a bit of a joke, and it turned out really interested.
sil_oh_wet:
Great idea Doc
DocOlanA:
Interesting, even.
DocOlanA:
The problem is, we don’t know much about Ri’neref’s D’ni. Especially not about the Yahvo faith he keeps talking about. So we could use some translated texts to study.
Nick White:
Hmm… it was a while ago for lots of that stuff but I’ll freshen up. I was looking over it recently because Jazz wanted to know some stuff.
Miranna:
Hellos everyone
DocOlanA:
I figure it’s difficult to understand the D’ni without understanding their beliefs.
Sharaya:
You sure know how to draw a crowd Nick. : )
Sumatria:
indeed he does
Nick White:
One sec. You’ll have to excuse me for a minute.
White Rose:
Do you have any idea how soon you Rils and Sharper will be leaving
Sam Byard:
couple of days white rose apparently
White Rose:
Thanks
White Rose:
will we be able to see you from our pods?
Sam Byard:
I’d imagine they would link to a more strategic location and keep in the cover
Sharaya:
Nick’s probably pming Heaven. ; )
sil_oh_wet:
Hehe
Jared:
Nick, did you hear my question earlier?
DocOlanA:
“Lord, they’re crowding me again. Yes Lord. Holy fire, Lord? Is that too much to ask?”
Kazahiro:
GOOD GAWV ALOT OF PEOPLE
sil_oh_wet:
hes afk
Kazahiro:
maybe he froze
Kazahiro:
cause of all the lag
Granelda wonders if a Uwin tastes like chicken
Kazahiro:
because of all the people CROWDING AROUND HIM LOL
La’Fitte:
shorah
Sharaya:
We heard you though Jared.
Sharaya:
It was a good question
Kazahiro:
cant everyyone give him a LITTLE room
Jared:
I really want the Rehevkor!
Brayden:
He said to hold on a moment. He’s looking at his KI…
sil_oh_wet:
Hiya La’Fitte
peni:
he has a little room
White Rose:
He is on his KI
Granelda says DOH!
Kazahiro:
I meant….everyone….DISPERESE
Kazahiro:
scatter
Jared:
for those who don’t know, it’s the D’ni lexicon
Kazahiro:
walk around
peni:
nope
sil_oh_wet:
i didnt know that Jared
Sumatria:
oh okay thanks Jared
Sharaya:
Oh, that would be awesome Jared
Kazahiro:
I know how a movie star feels now
Lobo:
So, Nick, what basketball team are you rooting for?
Nick White:
Sorry, alright.
Sam Byard:
welcome back nick
Kazahiro:
lol
Nick White:
Oregon.
DocOlanA:
More than just the lexicon. It was the master primer for the D’ni language. The writers learned from it.
Nick White:
Go Ducks!
Sumatria:
wb
Stephen C.:
Welcme back nick
PiperDriver cheers
Kazahiro:
agreed nice
Lobo:
Go there?
Granelda wants Nicks autograph……for a friend
Jared:
Nick, about the Rehevkor, have you found any copies?
sil_oh_wet:
quack quack
White Rose:
Will we be able to see you from our pods?
Nick White:
Doc, have you discussed why the D’ni thought the women were much better prophets than men?
Kazahiro:
all u need is a molotov nick…and the probloem of lagging is solved
Granelda:
and better looking too
Nick White:
There were very few men prophets. Very few.
peni nods her head
Kazahiro:
because women are ALWAYS ORACLES
sil_oh_wet:
Hmmm
Curty:
Sil_oh_Wet (the woman) rocks!!! :)
Kazahiro:
men are too stupid
Kazahiro:
and im speaking from experience
DocOlanA:
Not yet. We’ve mostly discussed Ri’neref and the sort of beliefs that led the D’ni to split off from the Ronay in the first place.
peni nods her head
Granelda:
yes
Kazahiro:
casue im one
Kazahiro:
LOL
sil_oh_wet:
Lol
Curty:
Hey now!
Kazahiro:
we handle the killing and heavy lifting part
peni nods her head
Kazahiro:
lol
White Rose:
Will you take pictures of whatever you find?
DocOlanA:
I can speculate, though. The sacred feminine is a recurring theme throughout many religions, though I’m not sure how many of the biological human functions taht caused women to be associated with oracles apply to the D’ni.
Curty:
Speak for yourself;)
Nick White:
Have you talked about taygahn?
DocOlanA:
What have you found about it?
Kazahiro:
agreed doc
Sharaya:
Women are the brains and the beauty
Granelda:
yes
Granelda cheers
Kazahiro:
i mean look at shiva too
Sumatria nods her head
Curty:
Oh here we go;)
sil_oh_wet:
So why the difference between men and woman?
Nick White:
Not sure it was a sacred thing like you are thinking.
peni nods her head
Kazahiro:
why do u think women always made the most proficient assassins?
Kazahiro:
poison
Nick White:
More that they were better able to hear from Yahvo.
Granelda knows the difference
peni:
smarter??
Donna:
and brains!
DocOlanA:
Why did the D’ni believe that?
Kazahiro:
and all that good stuff
Curty:
Women are Awesome! :)
Donna:
yay peni!
PiperDriver:
No, just more in touch.
Nick White:
Alright.
DocOlanA:
The Great King seemed not to believe it so much, though.
Jared:
women’s intuition is much better i would guess
Kazahiro:
now there are alot of extremely intelligent men
Lobo:
Maybe we should take advantage of Nick’s knowledge while he is here.
Kazahiro:
but they cant be hot
Shandi nods
Sumatria:
yes, let’s do that
sil_oh_wet:
but they were obviously given proof time and time again
Lobo:
We can debate men and women later
Sharaya:
What do you think Nick?
Kazahiro:
LOL
Nick White:
Well the Regeltavok Ahlsendar and the Oorpah are probably the two most important religious books.
Granelda knows the guys have a short between the headfones
Donna:
oh alright
Lehm:
ilove taking advantage of people
Kazahiro:
mmhmmm
Curty:
but us men are warriors and stand in the gap for our Women:)
Tetters feels the estrogen count rising…
Donna puts a little but goes back to listening
Nick White:
Alright, you’ve got a few minutes.
Kazahiro:
acutally with lions..the women hunt…and the men just take the food LOL
Nick White:
I’ve got to make a Dereno trip in a minute.
Brayden:
Cool.
Sam Byard:
need a hand nick ?
Donna:
Can I go?!?
peni:
i want to go too
Kazahiro:
I cant even tell which one of you IS NICK
sil_oh_wet:
Ohhhh Doreno?
Brayden:
Hahahaha
La’Fitte:
when is Dereno gonna be ready?
Curty:
when will we see Dereno?
Sumatria:
final safety check
Donna:
pick me pick me!!!
Granelda:
im Nick
Kazahiro:
NIIICCCKKK
Brayden:
Everyone XD
Nick White:
Final check.
Lobo:
Nick, if you need any volunteers for other things, I would be willing to help out in some way.
Kazahiro:
where are u?
DocOlanA:
Then tell us what you can in that time, Nick! :)
Sam Byard:
i’m looking foreward to nick
Brayden laughs
La’Fitte:
sWEET
sil_oh_wet:
Awesome
Kazahiro:
did want to ask you one question
Brayden:
Everyone volunteers.
Brayden laughs
sil_oh_wet:

Sumatria:

Nick White:
Yes Sil.
URUNick:

Tetters:

Lehm:

sil_oh_wet:

Curty:
This is so much more fun when not reading from a chat log ;)
Granelda:

Kazahiro:

sil_oh_wet:
Of Teledhan
Kazahiro:
LOL
LdyDrgn:
hoping for sea snakes in Dereno…
Nick White:
Yep, should be tomorrow morning some time.
Deius:
Shorah, everyone
La’Fitte cheers
Kazahiro:
uhm
Kazahiro:
also
Nick White:
I don’t have your number Granelda.
Jared:
What about the Korokh Jimah?
sil_oh_wet:
Can you tell us anything about it?
Kazahiro:
I have one question
Nick White wants you to call
DocOlanA:
I’ve seen some references to the Oorpah in the King journals. Prophecies and the like, she predicted the Great King. Ri’neref believed in it, if I recall. Any chance we’ll be getting a more complete translation soon?
sil_oh_wet:
That got lost in the mix , let me try again
Nick White:
That religious stuff is hard to translate.
Curty:
This is sweet
Nick White:
Takes a lot fo time.
Nick White:
Of
sil_oh_wet:
jazz sent me a KI pic of Teledahn, can you tell us anything about it?
Nick White:
Maybe.
