Well according to this final note by the DRC:
Here

It seems that the Zero was never actualy started up...

Me wonders what it's actually going to do other than send out glowing balls for people to collect....

Any ideas??

I personally think it is a generator (lightning, lasers?) and simotaneoiusly calibrates where every KI is. Though thinking about it, how would that've worked in the multi player? Would the city become slightly brighter with each aditional person who found all the markers? So, will it still work the same in the XPs?

Guess we'll find out soon...

The post at the DRC made it sound like this was something quite important and impressive.

Well, the laser beam in the Calibration Courtyard would shift up to the lens where the red beacon is at the beginning of the Zero Courtyard. Where the beam goes from there I have no idea. Straight ahead from the beacon is the Great Stairs & further is the Arch Of Kerath. Will it activate the Ferry service? Will it open the door on the 2nd landing on the Stairs outside the Kahlo Pub? Will it burn a hole through the Cavern wall & melt Zandis' trailer outside? Only time will tell. biggrin.gif

Maybe it recharges the special Book-writing ink? Then we can finally write our own Ages. wink3.gif

When the Great Zero was calibrated we were going to be able to set up and play our own marker games. Capture the flag, stuff like that. It said so in the notebooks in Gahreesen and the Zero.

i would think the great zero would create some sort of electro-magnetic field using all that power and enabling you to use it as some sort of magnetic center so enabling you to use your KI as a compass and using letting the markers know thier position and send it to your KI

It also would have filled in all of those zeros beside each listing in the Nexus with coordinate numbers. wink3.gif

samsbase..from what i read, the coordinates would be given in reference to the Great Zero in the cavern. In any other age, it would be referenced to the Maintainers Mark..you can find one in each age you visit.

You mean like the loose marker on the floor in Garrison that you can kick & move around? unsure.gif I guess the marker on the bluff is the real one.

The cavern wont great brighter...the brightness is dependent on the lake.

Alot of the D'ni Machinary is linked to the Great Zero so when its activated I think we'll see more technology working too
