I managed to FINALLY arrive down in New Mexico yesterday to meet up with Zandi. Lucky for me he was waiting outside. I greeted him and he told me what I needed to do to get back down into the Cavern. I followed his instructions and found a Relto book waiting for me. I used it and linked to my new home.

Back inside the cavern, I was very excited to see all the explorers again. It doesn’t seem like the DRC has changed much since the Cavern re-opened. I’m guessing they’ve just added a few more neighborhoods to help with the tons of people coming into the Cavern. Basically everything there was before the closure of the cavern is still around. I’ve even heard of a bahro sighting recently.

Yesterday, my main focus was to do business in Gahreesen and Teledahn. After that I began to focus more on exploring the City. I got to visit Ae’Gura once more, never happier to see it again. I then headed to the Watcher’s Sanctuary, and linked into Er’Cana to start the vats up once more for Pellet baking. It might be a little more difficult now since I’ve forgot the recipe I used to use, but I’ll be testing things out.

So I think I’ll be headed down into the Cavern once more this afternoon. I’d like to finish what I started yesterday in Er’cana and maybe start exploring Kadish Tolesa or Eder Gira once more.

Oh yeah, I’ve decided on a new name. I’ve figured apostrophes simply make anything sound more D’ni :)

Lost in Minkata

Recorded in: Izy's Journal — Isyldar @ 11:54 pm Cavern Time

I was able to get back into the Cavern this evening. There weren’t even any real issues Linking, and the trip was quicker than usual. Nadnerb had already arrived, of course, and was awaiting verification of the portal arrival in Negilahn.

Yesterday, (or the day before, I can’t remember which), we were able to determine that the Portal Calculator set up two years ago was still fairly accurate (within 4 minutes) for Payiferen, and we wanted to know if the new app for his iPhone was going to accurately calculate the other portal times as well. An attempt in both Negilahn and Dereno wasn’t successful. I guess we’ll have to re-work the math based off of the Payiferen portal, which we were able to catch later on this evening.

While waiting on the Payiferen portal, Nad decided to get us lost while grabbing a new pair of boots from Minkata:

Izy & Nad lost in Minkata

Izy & Nad lost in Minkata

Happily, Nadnerb was able to figure out which hole we were at, and navigated us to the right one with the boots in it. (Was it 3? It was either 3 or 4, but I think 3.)

Anywas, the paying job calls me back to the Surface, so I must put to rest my explorations for the evening. The Cavern will have to wait for another night. The Bahro only know that it’ll be there tomorrow.

Shorah all,

Returning to the Cavern!

Recorded in: Alex's Journal — Ah'lex @ 6:07 pm Cavern Time

Well, I was so excited to hear yesterday that the Cavern has been opened once again to explorers. As soon as I heard the news, I made preparations to leave to New Mexico. As I write this I’m starting to pack up. However, I also learned that the Cavern was closed out to most folks this morning because of a power issue the DRC had. I want to leave ASAP though, so hopefully within the hours it takes to get there, the Cavern’s Power will be back to normal.

I’m extremely excited for what’s to come. I really want to continue getting into becoming a Maintainer and start training in Gahreesen soon. Hopefully within the next few weeks, Guild activity will start back up as well.

And Finally, on my last thoughts before I finish my preparations to leave for the Cavern tonight, I want to think of  a new name for myself, preferably something partially taken from the D’ni language. I have a few ideas that I’ll go over on my way down to New Mexico, but I want to decide on a good one before heading into the Cavern.

So with that, Shorah! And I hope to see you guys all down there soon!

I was able to make it to the Cavern today. Or at least as close to it as Bevin. The old hoods aren’t present anymore, but are quickly being set up again by Explorers eager to resume ops in D’ni.

While I was there I was able to hook up with Nadnerb in Eder Tsogal, after a quick trip to Gahreesen to grab a new KI of course. It was great to see the old sights and sounds again, and breathe in the air of a totally different world. Refreshing in ways untold to those of us stuck in the grips of deep winter on the surface.

At any rate, I must away for now. The Cavern has temporarily closed up while preparations are made to further handle the onslaught of Explorers heading for the city. It will be good to go back again once they’re ready.

The Cavern Opens!

Recorded in: Izy's Journal,News Journal — Isyldar @ 10:28 pm Cavern Time

It has been a long 2 years since last I was able to visit the Cavern with other Explorers, and the wait is now over. D’ni is open, and the passages to it are crowded with those rushing to return to its depths and reconnect with old friends in corridors well known.

I myself am awaiting the chance to enter with great anticipation. Word came to me from Nadnerb that we were able to return, and now its just a matter of hours before I will be able to join the rest of the Explorers in the ancient tunnels.

I have some new tools with me this time for keeping these journals updated. Automatic updates, both to and from my KI will allow for eveb more info to flow out onto these pages.

I wonder how much has changed down there, if anything, and whether or not the old hood is still accessible…not likely, but rebuilding isn’t a concern. It’s something our community does well. Too bad I’ll have to build up those Heek points again though…
