“Gas Station Stan” returns

Stanley Murray, an old friend of Uru Obsession, returns. He ran a service station in New Mexico used by the DRC back in the early days, got to know them, and was one of the first explorers down in the Cavern. He was a good source of inside information. (Thanks to BrettM for this description)

Atriz:
So who runs this here hood?

Stanley Murray:
Is this the right place?
Stanley Murray:
Samuel?
Foo:
Right place for what?
BrettM:
All the members are owners. You’re one now, Atriz.
4runner:
its the right place
Foo:
Yea!
Atriz:
That’s pretty sick D:
Stanley Murray:
HA! Yes this is the right place!
Stanley Murray:
I thought the Nexus sent me somewhere else again.
BrettM:
Yeah. Some have suggested that hood ownership have more limits.
Foo:
Wait, did you send me a message?
Stanley Murray:
Oh you got it?
shrimpy:
hi julsborn
BrettM:
Music on TeamSpeak, gtchat.hopto.org, Classic Rock channel.
BrettM:
Mystery solved!
Stanley Murray:
Thought you didn’t. Something weird happened to my KI. Started downloading something and then went crazy for a couple of minutes.
Kam Uraki:
Speaking of downloading
Foo:
Kinda. There was no name on it, and a lot of strange characters.
Atriz:
Rock it out.
BrettM:
Downloading message is still with us.
Stanley Murray:
Strange.
Stanley Murray:
How is everyone?
Kam Uraki:
I still have that downloading message too
Foo:
Not too bad. Where’ve you been?
4runner:
Thats suppose to be error
julsborn:
Fly like an eagle! do do do do
BrettM:
Some people have reported problems after clicking on it.
Stanley Murray:
Here and there, Samuel. Long story.
BrettM:
Steve Miller Band rulez.
Foo:
Still in the gas business?
shrimpy:
so wat is that downloading thing?
Stanley Murray:
No. The Gas Station’s gone for years now.
4runner:
Just an error
julsborn:
downloading message is an error; just ignore it
shrimpy:
ohhhhhh ok
Foo:
Oh, that’s a shame. I hear a few of the DRC were regulars back when.
BrettM:
Darn. At $2-3 per gallon, it must be a great time for station owners.
shrimpy:
i gotta go help someody so ill see u guys l8r
shrimpy:
bye!
Stanley Murray:
Yes. That is how I got here in the first place.
Foo:
Bye shrimpy
BrettM:
Bye, Shrimpy.
Atriz:
Later shrimpy
4runner:

skylark:
bye shrimpy
Stanley Murray:
But that was a long time ago. Things changed since then. People changed too.
BrettM:
Anything interesting to tell us, GS?
Foo:
People do.
Stanley Murray:
It’s strange seeing this place coming back to life again.
Foo:
Did you leave when everyone else did?
julsborn:
I should be able to dance til I tell myself to stop!!!
BrettM:
It’s wonderful! I’m sorry I passed on Prologue and UU. What WAS I thinking??
Stanley Murray:
I did stay for some time after the dissapearance of Dr. Watson.
Foo:
So, are you just back, or have you been down here a while?
Atriz:
Guys, I’m out for a bit
BrettM:
Cya, Atriz.
Atriz:
Showing my dad the game
Stanley Murray:
I’m just passing by. I won’t be staying here for long.
Foo:
Bye Atriz
skylark:
cul atiz
Atriz:
See ya. Thanks again guys
Dovahn:
Shorah Atriz
4runner:
bye
Foo:
It seems you’re always moving!
Stanley Murray:
Bye Atriz!
Foo:
People like you, Standley Murray, end up never going home.
Stanley Murray:
Well I do. It’s just that my home seems to be in many places now.
Foo:
Wherever you hang your hat?
Stanley Murray:
But it’s a long story. Not for this day… So tell me. How are things down here? I heard the DRC is back in control once again?
Foo:
Well… control.
mp3 waves
Dovahn:
I suppose.
skylark:
hi mp3 didn’t see you there
skylark waves
mp3:
Hi skylark
Dovahn:
I’d like to see the DRC control hundreds of angry explorers
BrettM:
It’s a kinder, gentler DRC.
BrettM:
But not too much more forthcoming. B-)
Dovahn:
They’ve all taken the Journey.
Foo:
I don’t think the DRC has huge amounts of control.
Foo:
The real kings down here seem to be the Bahro.
Dovahn:
Just barrier control.
mp3:
What have you been up to skylark.
Foo:
Were you down here for the scream?
Stanley Murray:
Let me guess. They locked Ae’gura again?
Stanley Murray:
No. I was in Italy when it happened.
Foo:
Nothing above the great stairs are open. The harbour is shut off too.
Dovahn:
I just heard about the scream. I have yet to hear it.
BrettM:
And took away the scope from the hood, so we can’t see.
Foo:
Ah, you’ve heard about it then. That spooked the DRC.
Foo:
Spooked me too.
Dovahn:
You were there?
Jockel:
not only the DRC I think…
BrettM:
All electronics were apparently damaged. KI’s, imagers, heek table.
skylark:
very busy mp3 we have 4 over from france stayeig as house guestsand many of the rest of the family call in every day
Stanley Murray:
What is interesting is that….
Stanley Murray:
I mean… The reason I am here
Stanley Murray:
is that I was sent to Relto on 19th.
skylark:
btw it is christmas morning here already
BrettM:
From Italy??
Foo:
From Italy?!?
Stanley Murray:
I took my Relto book with me when I left the cavern few years ago.
Mookie:
Shorra neighborinos!
Dovahn:
Interesting.
BrettM wants an interrobang real bad.
BrettM:
Hi, Mookie.
Foo:
I bet that could come in handy, what with the crazy things you do.
Dovahn:
Interrobang!
Stanley Murray:
It’s not all that crazy, Sam.
Stanley Murray smiles.
Darryl Pogue:
interrobangs are the coolest things ever!
Foo:
Still, nice to know danger is never too close for comfort?
BrettM thinks that’s a pretty cryptic grin.
Thanakar:
oops, I just killed eddie
Dovahn:
What?
Mookie:
I was wondering… what happened just there?
Stanley Murray:
That is why I took the book with me.
Mookie:
You and Eddie flashed around real fast
Mookie:
XD
Thanakar:
phew..found him
Dovahn:
Oh, right. The beach ball.
Thanakar:
eddie went over the rail and landed on the stair below thankfully
BrettM wonders why he forgot the chatlog command. Rectified.
Darryl Pogue:
Someone had better have a chatlog of this
Mookie:

Mookie:

Foo:

Mookie:

Darryl Pogue:

Dovahn:
There was a party?
Darryl Pogue:

BrettM:

Stanley Murray:
Poor Jeff was surprised when I didn’t leave the book at his trailer that time…
Foo:
This is the party! Stan, you have pretty good timing.
Dovahn:
