I have caught wind of changes in the Cavern, small though they may be, and decided, once again to venture down to D’ni. It has been so very long since my last visit here. Longer than I had realized it would seem. Nobody has visited Nadnerb’s Bevin since last I did in September of 2010. Not even the man, Nadnerb himself. The place has a feel of abandonment about it. Kind of depressing really.
There are a few other explorers in the Cavern, mostly in Ae’gura, but in a few of the other Bevins as well, according to the Nexus display. I came in search of the changes though, so I didn’t spend much time socializing. Where are they?
It would seem that I neglected to finish Gahreesen whilst I was here last. Something that I must rectify. Hopefully I remembered to bring my notebooks from previous visits. I’ll need them to complete the cycle.
Ah, Gahreesen; despite the stark, military feel to the place, I absolutely love the outdoors here. I’ve read the notes that say the wilderness is something to be avoided, given the creatures that have been witnessed in it, but still…I long for the day when I could explore those woods. Once again, I am waiting atop the first building, for the rotations to align. This jump is always a bit scary. I shall have to use the cloth on the landing to ensure I can come back to the jump point in case I fall.
It took 3 jumps this time. 3! I’m definitely out of practice, if not out of shape. I’m going to have to watch myself, lest I grow careless and do something really stupid. Relto book in-hand, at all times. Check. I must remember to visit Eder Delin before I return to the Surface.
I am so tired, yet still, for all my wanderings, I have neither completed Gahreesen, nor have I found the new Ages that I had heard about. Perhaps they’ve been hidden once more. Sigh. I shall look a little longer before I head back. I did manage to get quite a few good photos in Gahreesen tonight though. That alone, I suppose, made the trip worth it.
Finally, I’ve found one of the Hoods they were talking about: The Fun House. Doesn’t look like it’s seeing much fun at the moment, but it’s getting a few visitors to say the least.
Today’s was a good visit. It’d be nice to see a few more of the old gang return to the Cavern for a game of Heek and some exploration; but I expect it to be a long time in coming if it ever does.
For now, I will myself return to the Surface, and perhaps get some sleep. I’ve completed the primary Ages, and returned the Pillars at the very least. More work remains to be done at a later date, such as the Museum Ages and Ahnonay. But, until then…..
