Calling for Researchers!

Recorded in: News Journal,Site News — Isyldar @ 7:19 pm Cavern Time

I had a thought just now, that some time in the Cavern whilst events are quiet could be put to good use: Age Assistants!

We’ve all needed them at one point or another (or at least to not-so-very-stubborn of us have ;) ), so why not work on a few documents that can be written under the ideal of, “here’s a few notes to get you through this Age.”

I don’t think we need to go to the point of writing all-out walkthroughs or spoilers for each individual Age, though if someone were to do that, I don’t see why we wouldn’t post it.

I’m curious to see what everyone else thinks on this. So…comment away!

A Quick Journey, That was not so Quick

Recorded in: Izy's Journal,News Journal — Isyldar @ 1:38 pm Cavern Time

Well, the busy season at work has started to slow down. In fact, I finally get to have a real day off! I’m tres excited for it. :) So, with the spare time in mind, I made a trip back down to the Cavern.

The place is quiet.

There are still Explorers roaming about the place. I ran into a few in the Guild of Greeters (GoG) Bevin while I was there. I had seen Zedra online, so I stopped in to see how things were going. As it turns out, one of the main reasons for my return had occurred: The 12th Sparkler. :)

Despite the likely spoiler involved, I’m going to post my KIpic from Relto for those who are really curious: [ Sparkler Finale ]

After obtaining this, an Explorer named (9GW) Dragon Claw asked for some assistance in completing Ahnnonay when their friend “spontaneously left the Cavern.” I readily obliged. I was definately curious to see if I remembered the exact theory behind moving those spheres. Turns out I did. That Nadnerb is a half-decent teacher. ;)

At any rate, I must go back to life in other worlds for the time being. With things slowing down on the surface, I’m sure I’ll be able to find more time to return.

Until then…

Winter Holidays of Renaissance Europe
A Cavern Choir concert

Sunday, December 16, 2007
2:00pm EST / 7:00pm GMT
Eder Delin, GameBoomer’s Bevin

The Renaissance saw an explosion of innovation in all of the fine arts, music chief among them. Composers across Europe explored new expressive possibilities and created exquisite music for their patrons, for their nation, and for their faith. The Cavern Choir presents songs from the period both familiar and rarely performed, in celebration of the winter holidays. Our selection ranges across the European continent, displaying diverse musical styles and traditions, and represents the three major faith traditions for which choral music was written during the period: Catholicism, Protestantism, and Judaism. Come join us as we bring holiday cheer to the Cavern with our rich sound and exciting repertoire! Reserve your ticket now for a concert not to be missed!

Some reviews of our debut concert, A Lover’s Complaint:

“The choir certainly brings ‘class’ to the Cavern!”

“In terms of the singers’ talent, the performance was impervious to harm!”

“That was absolutely amazing. When I started listening to it, my mom had my little sister pause a movie so they could listen too.”

Reserve your ticket before December 12! We look forward to seeing you at our concerts!

Cavern Manners: How to Act Like a Person When You Are Not One
A Discussion Seminar
Saturday December 15th at 15:00 KI time in K’veer

Everyone learned good manners growing up, but what are “good manners” when you are in the cavern? When do you say hi or wave to another explorer and when can you run past them? How should you behave at public meetings? How and when should you use age chat, buddy chat, hood chat and PM? What things do you apologize for to other explorers?

Come join us for a discussion in K’veer on Saturday Dec. 15th at 15:00 KI time hosted the Society of Anthropologists, Psychologists and Sociologists. There will be no lectures or presentations, just these and more questions with plenty of discussion. We will use a format that gives everyone a chance to speak while everyone else listens.

More event details can be found here.

Of hard drives and hardware

Recorded in: Nad's Journal — Nadnerb @ 4:08 pm Cavern Time

My main system recently suffered a hard drive failure. The thing that gets me about hard drive failures is that they appear to be inevitable. You get a new drive, and wonder, “How long will THIS one last?” Of course, you never properly back up your data anyway, since your new drive will inevitably be much larger than the last one, and you’d have to get another to fit everything you’re going to have to back up. So goes the cycle.

So, after a surprising amount of frustrations involving attempts to recover the dead drive’s files, I’m finally succeeding in installing XP again. However, until I can recover files off of my old drive, all my age building work is gone, along with plenty of other stuff.

Last I checked, my GameTap account has lapsed as well, and my renewal at this point, will depend on either an announcement regarding a new season, or some sort of highly interesting player event. (Or, I may just want in again. ;) )

Anyway, I’ll be busy restoring my computer related things to some semblance of normal for a while, so just letting everyone know what’s up.

The Downtime

Recorded in: Site News — Isyldar @ 12:50 am Cavern Time

I am terribly sorry for the site downtime folks. The issue was mine. I’ve been away from a computer long enough that I wasn’t getting my domain name notices. Heh. (And then I screwed up the renewal, so getting things fixed took a little longer than they should have.)

That said, things are back to normal, and this will not be a risk for yet another year. Thanks for your understanding. Hopefully we can all get back to the usual writing… :D

Wednesday’s Trip

Recorded in: Alex's Journal — Ah'lex @ 9:17 am Cavern Time

Shorah everyone! Yesterday I had a huge adventurous night. Explorer Stephen C. and I finished up my Ahnonay Age and it was amazing. I got 2 Relto pages, the Thunder for relto and Clock for relto. I also got a link to K’veer from Yeesha, which was also amazing. I went into Myst via the linking book in K’veer and saw how much it had changed since last I was there. I found catherines robes and headed back to relto for a new look. I now sport D’ni Goggles, no DRC Hat, a Watchers shirt, and some black jeans. Hope to see y’all in the Cavern.

Until Next time,

~Shorah

The last of the DRC leave

Recorded in: News Journal — Nadnerb @ 2:11 am Cavern Time

The last members of the DRC have finally left the cavern, along with the Bahro, apparently led away by Yeesha. The cavern is now truly empty of everyone but us, the explorers. I guess “Exodus” really did somewhat live up to it’s name.

The (long) KImail:

Farewell

I’m writing this note to lat you know that Marie and I have headed to the surface. I apologize that we could not make such an announcement in person but there were pressing reason to get a start on what we deem as our mission. You are well aware that Cate left the DRC for financial reasons. Judging the rumors, I’m not sure you are equally aware Dr. Kodama’s reasons for leaving but her has returned to the surface to try and find funding for this effort. He has not left the Council.

By now I’m sure many of you have heard of Yeesha’s visit. Upon hearing her words, we are more convinced than ever that we too must fins a way. As a result Marie and i have determined that the restoration will not continue without funding and we too, have taken it upon ourselves to search for such funding as well.

So, we leave you here to carry on the task Yeesha has given us.We leave you here hoping that we will return soon with better news and a brighter hope for the future.

Watch yourselves and good luck

Sardines in Ahnonay

Recorded in: Nad's Journal,Nah'dneb's Journal,News Journal — Nadnerb @ 2:07 am Cavern Time

Today was quite a day. The recap is .. well, long. Started out finishing Ahnonay with Robert, and meeting up in K’veer. Then Yeesha and the Bahro link in on top of me, and I record it. (this led me to actually start a topic on the forum) Then I met up with most of the usual crew and we opened the door in Tsogal for somone. (Twice, actually, as they fell the first time) Somehow that meeting ended up with a lot of early uru memories and reminiscing, with a little technical age building discussion mixed in. Then we went down to the hood and started a game of sardines in Ahnonay, Sphere 1. I this place has potential for good games of sardines. It’s not so linear that you can run through it and be guaranteed to enter voice chat range of the hider at least once, but it’s not so open as Minkata, where you’ll never find anything, let alone one avatar. This first round resulted in some cool pictures which I have posted below. ;)

Yeesha Speaks

Recorded in: Nad's Journal,Nah'dneb's Journal,News Journal — Nadnerb @ 8:57 pm Cavern Time

Today, I was hanging out in K’veer observing the coolness and polish, and listening to some tunes… when I noticed something behind me. Yeesha (in the flesh :shock: ) and a Bahro linked in behind me. only 4 or 5 other people in the room with Yeesha. She proceeded to make a long speech about the future and past of the cavern, and made a few things clear about the “evil” Bahro and their leader. It was an awesome event, and I was finally (for the first time) present in the same room as a bahro.

You can find my chatlog of the occurrence here.
