Kimmie:
hello Marie
amonre:
evening, marie
NZman:
hi, Marie
Kimmie:
welcome to GoG bevin Marie
Ashelbane:
Shorah to all.
Ashelbane waves
Marie Sutherland:
I was getting too many private messages to reply to them :)
Ian Watson:
How’s the cavern looking? I know there were some fears of instability after the Bahro scream the other day.
vid:
You’re a very popular lady, I’m sure. I know all the ResEngs want your phone number in their KI :P
amonre:
Why do I always become hungry at night? It’s like I need something after dinner. >_<
Junee:
It depends on how long after dinner it is ;)
Marie Sutherland:
Ian, we’re still in the process of determine what state everything is in.
vid:
I think I’m going to start trying to make a chart of the splitting occuring in Ae’gura… it might be helpful…
Marie Sutherland:
So far, things don’t look too bad, but some of us have learned to be more cautious than others.
amonre:
splitting?
Ian Watson:
I can certainly appreciate that.
Veralun:
hi All
vid:
Yeah…. Victor was speaking about the city being broken up earlier. Different people going to different parts of the city, and for all purposes it seeming to be a different city altogether.
J’iim:
victor mention the discovery of multiple instance of the City. However the nexus seemed to rooted in the one we know
Shamgar cheers
vid:
That makes sense, since the Nexus would carry D’ni books… while it’s Yeesha’s books that take people to different “versions”
Marie Sutherland:
I was actually on my way to the city to talk about that, when I received the private messages.
Maurus:
well, that’s true…
Butch:
Marie: can you give us an estimate of how much of the city the DRC has reviewed since the incident?
J’iim:
good point. Yeesha played a prominent role in Victor’s talk
Ian Watson:
If there’s any way for us to help with repairs or such, I’m sure many of us would jump at the chance.
vid:
Marie, any information you can share regarding that would be most appreciated.
Maurus nods his head
J’iim:
however he never said when the barriers would come down
Marie Sutherland:
Thanks for the offer, Ian.
Marie Sutherland:
Butch, I don’t have an overall estimate. Different folks are looking at different areas.
Dusante:
Wow Marie, and so many of you, haven’t seen you all for a long time! Hello!
Marie Sutherland:
Engberg might have a more comprehensive view of the overall picture.
Dan’ni:
So what interesting are you currently working on, Marie?
Julian Lapis:
Hiya folks
Dusante waves
Marie Sutherland:
Dan’ni - at the moment splitting my time between Eder Delin and Ae’gura.
Ayli waves
vid:
Dr Sutherland, of course we both know that a lot of explorers have been carrying the Relto book that we found years ago for… well.. years. But a lot of new explorers have them also, and they don’t seem to be in the cleft anymore. Is the DRC supplying Relto books as a safety measure now?
Julian Lapis:
Shorah Marie!
Maurus:
Marie, what do you think of Delin and Tsoghal?
Marie Sutherland:
vid - no, we’re not supplying them. We’re not opposed to them, but we’re not distributing them ourselves.
Junee:
Is there any chance we might see Eder Delin soon?
Marie Sutherland:
Maurus - I’m particularly fond of Eder Delin, but Eder Tsogal is nice, too.
Julian Lapis:
Marie, whats your personal take on the events of the 19th? Do you think that we, as explorers, are in any danger?
Marie Sutherland:
Junee - Yes. Probably. Of course, “soon” is a relative term.
Marie Sutherland:
Given that we’ve been working on it for months, what seems like “soon” to us may not seem like “soon” to you.
Dan’ni:
So “soon” as in weeks? or months?
Ian Watson:
Given that many of us have been involved in the cavern going on three years now, six months could be “soon,” and I’d be happy with that.
Marie Sutherland:
Julian - I hope the explorers are not in danger. We’re certainly doing our best to take what precautions we can.
Dan’ni:
Cause I’m sure you ‘re not referring to days. :)
Ayli:
As Mr. Rand likes to say: “In a future” :)
Marie Sutherland:
But it’s impossible to know for sure how much danger any of us are in.
Marie Sutherland:
Ian - given that definition of “soon”, I think Delin will definitely be available within that time frame. :)
Ian Watson cheers
Julian Lapis grins like a goodun
Dan’ni:
One thing that I’ve always been curious. Did the DRC find out where the Bahro screams actually come from?
Jeff Klinger:
Bahro, obviously. ;)
vid:
I always assumed from Bahro :)
Ian Watson snorts
Marie Sutherland:
But before Eder Delin… what I actually was heading to the city to talk about…
Ayli:
What are the biggest concerns at the DRC at the moment, Ms. Southerland?
Dan’ni:
Yeah but they must be hiding somewhere close
Dan’ni:
;)
Kam Uraki:
If I might say something. I’m glad you enjoyed our DRC Public Safty Association videos, Ms. Sutherland
Ian Watson:
Yes, Marie?
Kam Uraki:
Vortmax told me he passed them along to you. :)
Marie Sutherland:
I know Victor was in earlier. We have been discussing trying to get the doors to the Gallery open.
Ayli:
That is great :)
vid cheers
Dusante:
Wow that is great news!
Julian Lapis:
Interesting!
Dan’ni:
Awesome!
Veralun:
that would be great!
Ian Watson:
Oh. Wow. That’d be nice; I don’t think we’ve seen them open… well, ever.
Kam Uraki:
Oh really? I thought that was not possible.
Dan’ni:
About time too! :)
Ural:
Awesome!!
Jeff Klinger claps his hands
Dan’ni:
Any success with that, Marie?
Kam Uraki:
Did you guys just find the keys or something? ;)
Julian Lapis:
What are the practicailities? Is there a lot of work needed?
Marie Sutherland:
We’re hoping that we’ll have them working sometime next week.
Dan’ni:
Awesome!
Jeff Klinger cheers
Veralun cheers
Brandeline:
Anything is possible with a couple sticks of dynamite.. but they are awful nice doors to be blown off their hinges. ;)
Junee:
Nice :)
Julian Lapis:
Now THIS is legendary
Ayli thinks its an excellent news :)
Marie Sutherland:
Something for you all to be looking forward to. :D
Kam Uraki:
lol Brand
kami:
dang you guys have been on the journey
BrettM:
Dr. Sutherland, have you had any reports of missing people?
Veralun:
will us give that an extra instance to the city Marie?
Dan’ni:
So the rest of the city will also be opened soon then?
Ian Watson:
That would be fantastic. I would assume that would also mean access to the second floor of the Gallery?
Kam Uraki:
I’ll consider that a nice holiday gift from the DRC
Marie Sutherland:
Brand - um, yes, we’d prefer to get them working without damaging them.
Brandeline scuffs. Sorry, couldn’t resist. :)
kami:
victor said that several of you have taken the journey marie…..did yu??
Marie Sutherland:
BrettM - I was very concerned about that, in fact. But no one I’ve asked has known of anyone missing.
BrettM thanks you
amonre:
always travel in pairs ;)
Julian Lapis:
How has Kodama-san been today? He sounded a little riled yesterday.
Kam Uraki:
Ms. Sutherland, sort of an odd question. What is the purpose of that light on the Arch?
Marie Sutherland:
If you know of anyone who’s still missing, please let me know.
Veralun:
we miss DR Watson
J’iim crashes to desktop with a locked up KI
Kam Uraki:
Well, I’m missing my keys, but that’s not as important ;)
Tweek:
Phil too
Marie Sutherland:
Veralun - We do too.
Julian Lapis:
and that scurilous rogue Sharper :D
Veralun:
I hope he will return soon
kami:
douglas???…or did he get fired or something?
Kam Uraki:
Actually Ms Sutherland. If you ask me, you’ve all done a fine job without Dr. Watson
Kam Uraki:
In fact an awesome job
Ian Watson:
Indeed. I certainly can’t complain.
Jeff Klinger:
Still, it would be good to see him back.
Dusante:
Yeah you guys have been doing great, your work doesn’t go un appreaciated despite what a few might have been saying
Marie Sutherland:
Kam - thank you. As Dr. Watson often said “We do the best we can with what we have.”
Anonymous Coward:
my KI just broke…wait till I get my hands on Victor..
Marie Sutherland:
We’ve tried to keep to that philosophy, even in his absence.
Julian Lapis:
It really does feel like things are moving forward. A lot of that is due to the DRC.
Natika:
shorah Eleri
Kam Uraki:
Communication between the explorers and the DRC is much better, which has fostered a lot of trust
Julian Lapis:
Shorah Eleri!
vid:
Dr Sutherland, have you heard much regarding the fountains? The water flow is sorely missed.
Eleri:
Shourah, everybuggy
Ian Watson:
I’m not a Doctor, but I’m certainly a Watson, if people need one. ;)
Kam Uraki:
Ah, one of the Liaisons arrives. Shorah Eleri
Mookie:
Shorah everyone!
Julian Lapis:
We’ll bear that in mind Ian.
Marie Sutherland laughs
vid:
Mookah!
Mookie:

Kam Uraki:
I’m not a Doctor, but I play one on the internet…
Natika:

Marie Sutherland:

Mookie:
Hallo!
Kam Uraki wonders if anyone will get the 80’s joke
Natika cheers
Julian Lapis:
Im not a doctor, but I know a lot of them…
Linkin’ Imp:

Linkin’ Imp rolls eyes

Linkin’ Imp:

Julian Lapis:

Marie Sutherland:
What can I do for you, Linkin’ Imp?
amonre:

Kam Uraki:

Linkin’ Imp:

Julian Lapis:
My god… does the entire cavern think I am psychotic?
Dusante:

Kam Uraki:
You could do something for me!
Tink tink pricks up ears
Marie Sutherland:
The other day, you came to a hood just as I was leaving and seemed hurt I had to leave.
Kam Uraki gets out autograph book
Eleri:
no, Jul, just a little wonky ;)
Marie Sutherland:
I went to your hood later to say hello, but you were not there.
Linkin’ Imp:
Oh. i’m a bit hypersensitive.
Linkin’ Imp blushes
Tink tink wonders where that job had gone
Julian Lapis:
Wonky… you make me sound like a crooked table
Marie Sutherland:
Well, it’s nothing personal, I assure you.
Linkin’ Imp:
I can’t join any hoods so i was getting upset
Kam Uraki:
Ask for a hug Link :)
Marie Sutherland:
But I do need to get back to work.
