Dan’nee:
It was good too see the Gallery doors open yesterday.
Camann:
Ah
Aleks:
Hello Dr. Sutherland. It’s nice to see you again.
Matthew Miller:
Good to see the gallery doors open now marie
Thend:
The guys are out in force to meet the elusive Marie Sutherland
Marie Sutherland:
Good afternoon. It’s nice to see you, too.
Butch starts to laugh
Andrej cheers
Dan’nee:
Is this visit for an announcement, Dr. Sutherlan, or just a chat?
SixEcho:
argg - when are they going to open up more?
Butch:
Marie Sutherland, Au’gura 2006-Dec-28
Marie Sutherland:
Dan’nee, a little of both, I guess.
Dan’nee:
Great!
Andrej:
Nice!
Lan:
c
Lan:
cool
Matthew Miller:
Marie, who is this Cate person we have heard about from other DRC members?
Dan’nee waits to see if she’ll actually answer that.
Lan:
I think most of us want to hear the annoucement first :)
Andrej waits for the anouncement
Marie Sutherland:
Cate would probably prefer to introduce herself.
Thend:
figured. When?
SixEcho:
sighs, is this all?
Dan’nee:
Patience, SixEcho
Storyteller:
An impatient lot, aren’t we?
Thend nods his head
SixEcho:
it’s been 6-9 months
Jared:
We have exploration in our blood, what can I say
Butch:
Does Cate plan on introducing herself soon?
Dan’nee:
Should we wait until after the announcement before we ask questions?
Grogyan:
When will we see the new story?
Lan:
I think we should Dan’nee
Matthew Miller:
Yeah, sorry. Maybe I should have waited until after the announcment
Jared:
Grogyan, this is part of it
SixEcho:
twitchie: i’ve finished the game a few times hoping it unlocked more content, only to get reset later
Camann:
Please, everyone hold questions until after Marie’s announcement
Marie Sutherland:
When, I’m not sure when Cate will be here. Probably not until after the new year.
Matthew Miller:
Could you say anything about her position within the drc? We hardly know anything about her
Thanakar:
why is everyoen up here?
Dan’nee:
I personally have a theory about who she is that I’m waiting to meet her to see if it’s true.
SixEcho:
did i just happen upon a scheduled announcement? time? (almost 4pm CST here)
Error:
Don’t know how to ‘/whisper Thanakar Maries’s over the barrier’
Thend:
We are listening to Marie Sutherland’s impromptu announcement
SixEcho:
*hears nothing*
Lan:
Dr. Sutherland already said she would like to introduce herself, so that will be explained during her introduction
Marie Sutherland:
as for the announcements… Engberg has moved his focus onto the fountains in the hoods.
Arrhae cheers
zia cheers
tikibear:
I suppose it will be better than the Rand imposter we saw earlier today.
Thend starts to laugh
Lan cheers
Grogyan cheers
Camann:
That’s wonderful news!
Dan’nee:
She’s at the top of the stairs
Storyteller:
Alright! I can break out the swim trunks!
a’bond claps his hands
Andrej:
SixEcho, please be patient, Mrs. Sutherland can’t answer to everyabody and I think that she is ovverrun with questions
Thend:
Marie, about the Hoods, who took the ttelescopes and who put them back? It was reported they simply ‘blinked’ back in
Marie Sutherland:
I think he’ll get them working again very soon. Maybe even today, though don’t hold him to that. :D
Andrej:
Thend My Hodd doesn’t have the telesope back, yet
Matthew Miller:
Oh, today. That would be nice!
Lan cheers
Marie Sutherland:
After the fountain, we’ll be focusing on the community rooms in the neighborhoods.
a’bond:
cool
Andrej:
That sounds great, Marie!
Marie Sutherland:
We hope that those will also be available in the next few days.
Matthew Miller cheers
Aleks:
Sounds great.
Andrej:
Will Ae’gura be only opened, after the hoods are fully functional?
Aleks:
How about the schedule for the city? Anything tentatively known yet?
Jared:
can you give us any specifics on why they were gone in the first place?
Dahn:
Great to hear! I hope that heavy heek table will be soon to follow
Marie Sutherland:
Andrej, we are still evaluating the different areas of the city.
Dan’nee:
Which area looks most promising?
Aleks:
Any areas we are likely to see sooner than others?
Andrej:
Thx, I hope to see more of the city, soon!
Jimbo:
Whats there to evalue?
SixEcho:
Jimbo, how about the lag….
Marie Sutherland:
Aleks, the areas that were open prior to “the scream” will likely be opened first.
Jimbo:
a loose tile we might fall over?
Aleks:
Ah, ok? So the Takotah and such?
Aleks:
Sounds good.
Andrej:
Well… I didn’t manage to read through all the books in the King’s hall, so I’m thursting for information!
Jimbo:
But u do look great, Dr. Sutherland
Andrej:
This will be hopefully one of the first Areas to be opened
Dan’nee:
Do you know of any D’ni history that will be released soon?
Dan’nee:
I noticed Nick White is back, for translations?
Marie Sutherland:
Thanks, Jimbo.
Aleks:
Any word on any ages? I know it may be early to speak of it, and all.
Grogyan:
How is Dr Laxman going with the Great Zero?
Marie Sutherland:
Dan’nee, for now the priority is getting things that were recently closed verified and opened again.
Dan’nee:
What kind of work is Nick doing, then?
SixEcho:
i’m gonna check out the new content in the “Life Age” *links via X in the lower right of screen*
Marie Sutherland:
Aleks, there are two Ages you’ve probably heard about that will be opening in the not too distant future.
Aleks:
Ah, ok. I think I know what you mean. Quite exciting.
Butch:
Dr. Sutherland, is there anything the explorer community can do to help the DRC?
Montgomery:
Dr. Sutherland, have any explorers visited either of these ages, or are they completely new?
Marie Sutherland:
grogyan, Laxman is busy with lattice issues at the moment, but I think he hopes to get back to the Great Zero after that.
Grogyan:
Great thanks Dr.
Matthew Miller:
Does he have any information on that interesting readings from before the scream?
Marie Sutherland:
Butch, at the moment, your patience and support are helping us tremendously.
Aleks:
And as for the scream, is there any more info regarding its exact origin?
Aleks:
Was it a Bahro thing for sure?
jerrabella:
G
Marie Sutherland:
I also know that Laxman has mentioned something that he wanted help looking in to.
a’bond:
Is Douglas Sharper still around?
Dan’nee:
He mentioned the city book and “instancing”
Marie Sutherland:
Matthew, I’m sorry, but you’ll have to ask him that.
Dan’nee:
Many think the instancing is based on Neighborhoods
Montgomery:
How can we help Dr. Laxman?
Dan’nee:
That the book brings you to a Neighborhood instance of the city
Thend:
Marie, anthropologically speaking, there’s the possibility that the ‘Called’ may, in actuality, be descendents of genuine D’ni. I request you authorize blood tests of both the D’ni survivor and willing members of the explorer community to confirm this? What is your stance on this possible scheme?
Dan’nee:
vid has achart on the drc site, I believe
Marie Sutherland:
thend, That’s an interesting theory.
Mookie:
Hey vid, whatcha up to?
Mookie:
mt
Thend:
It seems to be scientifically proveable
Mookie:
Hey vid, whatca up to?
Mookie:
Fark
Montgomery:
Dr. Sutherland, are the two ages you mentioned new, or have explorers visited them in the past?
Matthew Miller:
Marie, what have you been working on lately yourself?
Marie Sutherland:
I’m sory to cut this chat short, but I have another meeting to attend.
jerrabella:
Lol
Mark_AF:
Well you can start by eliminating everyone that is not native american.
Matthew Miller:
Okay, thank you for coming Dr.Sutherland.
