Cavern Criers: New Explorer Info Session

Shorah b'shemtee, or "Peace to everyone", as we like to say as a greeting in the cavern!

Are you a new explorer? Do you want to know more about the restoration of D'ni?  Or maybe you're interested in the various groups, and people of the cavern? Well, here's your chance!

A team sponsored by the various Guilds and groups, with special permission from the DRC, are presenting a special info session for new visitors and explorers just arriving to D'ni for the first time. If you're not a new explorer, don't fret...everyone is welcome to attend the discussion...and perhaps run into some old friends!

Funding is still being arranged to make this a monthly event, so for now, this third Info Session will depart from Kirel on Saturday, July 2nd at approximately 18:00 KI time, several hours after the monthly All Guilds Meeting. (That's CET: 02:00 am / EST: 8:00 pm / PST: 05:00 pm, for those not quite in sync with D'ni time keeping, yet!) Particpants will then be linked to Ae'gura via a special linking process. A designated Messenger will be on hand to direct new explorers with any questions about this process.

Once arriving in the city, the session will begin within few minutes while people are Linked in. If you can't make it this time due to the late start time, not to worry...There will be another earlier session sometime within the near future! The next one is tenatvely planned for the same Saturday as the rescheduled AGM on August 13th, due to the yearly Mysterium the weekend before. More info will be forcoming in the near future...Please check back for more details soon! Read more

A Journey Without An Ending: Part 2 - The Journey Continues

Disclaimer: This series of articles is written in-character (IC) and are mainly based on known facts or research. Although Max has taken some liberties or "artistic license" in some parts, like in adapting or intertwining the gameplay or the fiction into facts of reality, the article has been fact-checked by others in the GoMe and in most aspects is, to the best of our knowledge, factually accurate.

In Part 1, we learned how John Loftin discovered an entrance to the large cavern known as D'ni and how Elias Zandi and Loftin made their first expeditions down the lava tunnels.  Later, during a more than three-week-long expedition, they were accompanied by Dr. Richard A. Watson as the third member of their group of explorers. On that trip down to the cavern in the summer of 1991, John Loftin lost his life in a tragic accident that left the other two absolutely devastated. Despite this enormous setback and loss of life, Zandi and Watson were still determined to carry on and explore further what their late companion had discovered.

They had also started to work on the writings they had brought with them back to the surface; specifically, attempting to translate what, to their knowledge at the time, was a dead language.  In the latter part of 1991, they were finally able to translate some journals written by a young woman known as  Katran  or Catherine (she had been called both, apparently due to a mispronunciation by her husband).  Elias had also in correspondence with  Rand  and Robyn Miller told them about the group's progress and kept them updated on their findings.   Read more

Just like many others making the Journey, I've been amazed by what I've seen and experienced. Many explorers still find their way down to the cavern and the magic world of the D'ni culture, visting the Ages and the remains of a once great underground city. So it might be interesting for all those newcomers, and perhaps also for old "veteran explorers" of the Cavern as well, to try and recapture how this all came about.

On one of my several trips down to the cavern a few years ago, I happened to ask Jeff Zandi if he'd like to tell me a bit about the discovery of the city and the D'ni inhabitats.  By then, I had already mentioned to him about my visits to some European caves and about my writings for some magazines; we shared the same interest for archeology. With a bit of persuasion, this genuinely nice fellow finally agreed. Read more
