Cate returns, Nick suspended

Filed under: Nad's Journal,News Journal — Nadnerb @ 8:38 pm Cavern Time

Cate showed up in several Bevins today, and, among other news, reported that Nick white has been suspended/placed on probation for two weeks for “fraternization with explorers”, which is apparently against company policy. She made a point about the spread of rumors, and why the DRC keeps some facts to itself. An interesting point, as I first heard of the suspension of Nick in cavern, and had the opportunity to spread a little disinformation myself, before reading the forums and realizing the error. :D

Sydney Austin was present at one of the meetings, and made several remarks implying that Nick was her mysterious “source” within the DRC. (Not confirmed, of course)

On a less controversial note, we now know that Minkata will be appearing, followed by Er’cana, if everything goes according to plan, :roll: and that Ahnonnay is back on schedule. She says that Minkata is large, but rather empty, and that the unnamed age that Nick had mentioned is small, but interesting, and may also be fast-tracked.

Sharper is back in the cavern after some absence and is now continuing his animal investigation. Cate thinks that Sydney is “fairly arrogant and naive, maybe not stupid”, and she likes her coffee with cream and sugar. ;)


  1. This is interesting, at the very least; and concerning at the most. I don’t have a lot of information on the subject, but from what I can gather, there are two possible scenarios here:

    1) Nick White and Sydney Austin were in cahoots, and that’s why Cate suspended him.

    2) Nick was simply spending too much time chatting with us, the explorers, and Cate didn’t like that.

    Given the information that I have at hand, I’m actually leaning towards the first explanation as opposed to the second. I might be a bit more optimistic than perhaps I should, but I’d like to think that the DRC isn’t trying to keep us completely out of the loop.

    Regardless, it is an interesting development, and it is nice to see that Cate was back down in the Cavern. Perhaps with Nick out of the spotlight for the moment, she will pay us a visit or two. I personally think we need to see more from the DRC than we have the past few months. It’s been decidedly quiet compared to a couple months ago.

  2. […] Nadnerb has written recently about some interesting developments with Nick White. It seems he has been suspended for “fraternizing with the explorers.” Not a good thing in Cate’s book, I guess. […]

  3. Uhm… what’s a pingback? Is that automated? it doesn’t have an author. :?

    Edit: since it was created at the exact same time as the message it quotes, I’d guess it is automated, and was created because it contained a link to this entry.

  4. You would be correct in that assumption. :)
