(04/20 23:08:12) Chat.log started...
(04/20 23:08:1 Nick White: Haven't seen you for weeks.
(04/20 23:08:20) Jazz: Awww. Poor Kerm
(04/20 23:08:20) Andrew Eldred: Gone wading in Tetsonot already?
(04/20 23:08:26) Jazz: Where have you been?
(04/20 23:08:26) Kermit D Frog: guess I can stay for a little longer
(04/20 23:08:35) Jazz: We all missed you
(04/20 23:08:54) Nick White: What's going on?
(04/20 23:08:59) Jazz: Lots of things
(04/20 23:08:59) Nick White: Tell me the latest cavern news.
(04/20 23:09:0 Kermit D Frog: hiho Nick so, Tetsonot eh?
(04/20 23:09:1 Kermit D Frog: feels like home to me
(04/20 23:09:24) Jazz roars with laughter
(04/20 23:09:29) Jazz: Not in that water Kerm
(04/20 23:09:30) Nick White: The humidity is good for your skin.
(04/20 23:09:31) Kermit D Frog: bit chilly tho
(04/20 23:09:40) Andrew Eldred: Wait, shouldn't someone tell Nick about the ADM and RR...
(04/20 23:09:43) Jazz: Not too sure about the sparks
(04/20 23:09:4 Jazz nods her head
(04/20 23:09:51) Andrew Eldred: And by someone, I mean the person most qualified. Jazz?
(04/20 23:09:59) Jazz: OK
(04/20 23:09:59) Nick White: Do tell.
(04/20 23:10:14) Jazz: There seems to be some dissent in the Cavern lately
(04/20 23:10:41) Jazz: There is a group formed who are not happy with the DRC
(04/20 23:10:42) Kermit D Frog: I have a first hand account of the ADM members and what they say
(04/20 23:11:11) Jazz: They seem to be growing more powerful
(04/20 23:11:12) Nick White: What's this group? Haven't even heard about it.
(04/20 23:11:15) Jazz: Their numbers are growing
(04/20 23:11:2 Jazz: They are calling themselves the 'Anti-DRC Movement'
(04/20 23:11:2 Nick White: The Anti-DRC Movement?
(04/20 23:11:29) Andrew Eldred: Yeah, that's what happens when you haven't been in cavern in weeks. Revolutions start.
(04/20 23:11:3 Jazz nods her head
(04/20 23:11:46) Nick White: So what are they doing?
(04/20 23:11:57) Jazz: They are using words like 'force' and harassment
(04/20 23:12:03) Jazz: It's worrying
(04/20 23:12:05) Nick White: And is the girl who had the anti-drc hood a while back doing this?
(04/20 23:12:10) Jazz nods her head
(04/20 23:12:20) Nick White: Sydney?
(04/20 23:12:22) Andrew Eldred: Yeah, Nick, you might know her.
(04/20 23:12:25) Andrew Eldred laughs
(04/20 23:12:30) Kermit D Frog: simply put, one moment they're saying it's all about the explorers, and then when asked about something like having guilds, Sydney Austin is all like "not if I have anything to say about it". But when I ask her what if the explorers want it, shes silent
(04/20 23:12:51) Nick White: She's harmless.
(04/20 23:12:5 Jazz: Not so sure about that
(04/20 23:13:04) Kermit D Frog: she doesnt think so
(04/20 23:13:07) Jazz: She seems to have quite a following now
(04/20 23:13:22) Jazz: We are forming our own affiliation
(04/20 23:13:29) Jazz: Hi DM
(04/20 23:13:35) Nick White: The AADRM
(04/20 23:13:39) Dudemom_2000: hi Jazz
(04/20 23:13:40) Jazz: Noooo
(04/20 23:13:4 Jazz: No. Not anti ADM
(04/20 23:13:49) Jazz starts to laugh
(04/20 23:14:00) Jazz: We have called ourselves the Restoration Realists
(04/20 23:14:0 Nick White: I heard the AAADM was forming as well.
(04/20 23:14:0 Kermit D Frog: she honestly believes the DRC are covering up things. but she has no solid proof. she's a sensationalist - a dangerous thing in this place of rumours and hear-say
(04/20 23:14:1 Nick White: Hmm...
(04/20 23:14:33) Jazz: We all know the DRC are not perfect . . . sorry Nick
(04/20 23:14:34) Kermit D Frog: and the professor Matt...
(04/20 23:14:46) Jazz: But there are ways and there are better ways
(04/20 23:14:46) Nick White: All of them except myself of course.
(04/20 23:14:51) Nick White: Alright.

(04/20 23:14:52) Jazz: Of course! lol
(04/20 23:15:04) Nick White: So what is the RR doing?
(04/20 23:15:09) Dudemom_2000: Well, I think the DRC should be able to visit the cavern without getting mobbed or harassed and be able to give out information
(04/20 23:15:17) Jazz: We realise that things can be improved, but we are trying to do that in a peaceful way
(04/20 23:15:24) Kermit D Frog: the ADM talk of giving the DRC a chance to change their ways, but they seriously have problems with the DRC before giving them that chance. The ADM have already made their mind up
(04/20 23:15:26) Jazz: That is exactly one of our aims DM
(04/20 23:15:41) Jazz: So that members of the DRC will come and visit us more often
(04/20 23:15:49) Nick White: Alright.
(04/20 23:15:50) Jazz: If they feel they will not be mobbed or harassed
(04/20 23:16:00) Jazz: We would like to build up a better relationship
(04/20 23:16:03) Sumatria: shorah
(04/20 23:16:05) Dudemom_2000 nods her head
(04/20 23:16:13) Dudemom_2000: shorah Sumatria
(04/20 23:16:17) Andrew Eldred: Wait. Why don't we just -ask- Nick why he/they haven't been around?
(04/20 23:16:1 Nick White: I'm all for relationships.
(04/20 23:16:22) Bob Mackey: Shorah
(04/20 23:16:2 Andrew Eldred: Yeah, we know Nick.
(04/20 23:16:2 Dudemom_2000: lol
(04/20 23:16:54) Jazz: I fear Sydney and her group are more than just rhetoric and bluff
(04/20 23:17:11) Nick White: Alright, well... I guess I'll have to talk to her and see what's up.
(04/20 23:17:21) Jazz: OK. But be careful, Nick
(04/20 23:17:34) Nick White: Always....
(04/20 23:17:36) Jazz: Don't fall for her charms
(04/20 23:17:59) Nick White: Will do.
(04/20 23:18:03) Jazz: Will do?
(04/20 23:18:0 Jazz starts to laugh
(04/20 23:18:26) vid wants to ask a question...
(04/20 23:18:30) Andrew Eldred: What other news in the cavern?
(04/20 23:18:31) Dudemom_2000: that was a happy Bahro
(04/20 23:18:37) Jazz: If you see the purple hard hat on explorers, you know they are affiliated with the Restoration Realists
(04/20 23:18:40) Andrew Eldred: Oh yeah, i was named Heek Champion of the Universe.
(04/20 23:18:47) Dudemom_2000 claps her hands
(04/20 23:18:51) Nick White: Nice work.
(04/20 23:18:55) Dudemom_2000: good Andrew!
(04/20 23:18:5 Nick White: I did like the purple hair better.
(04/20 23:19:02) vid: Mr White... I'm sorry to interrupt... but may I ask a very serious question?
(04/20 23:19:24) Nick White: Yes, Vid. As long as it is very serious.
(04/20 23:19:2 Jazz: lol
(04/20 23:19:31) Nick White: I mean very. Not just a little.
(04/20 23:19:32) vid: It's VERY serious.
(04/20 23:19:35) Andrew Eldred suppresses a giggle. This is -serious-!
(04/20 23:19:41) Nick White: Ok.
(04/20 23:19:49) Nick White: Then, by all means, you must ask it.

(04/20 23:19:59) vid: Tetsonot was placed in the museum today... is it DRC approved? Early reports are that it's very... potentially dangerous.
(04/20 23:20:04) Andros: Nick, i have a questuion regarding the pod age. we know the name of some parts of the age but do we know the name of the age as a whole?
(04/20 23:20:22) Nick White: The Age is DRC approved.
(04/20 23:20:32) vid blinks
(04/20 23:20:33) Andrew Eldred: But is the pod?
(04/20 23:20:33) Dudemom_2000: We should let Nick answer the first question and then go onto the next question
(04/20 23:20:42) vid: Well, I'm scared as hell. But thank you very much.
(04/20 23:20:46) Nick White: The DRC put the Book out.
(04/20 23:21:07) Jazz: Is it safe there?
(04/20 23:21:13) Jared: I'm concerned about the DRC's judgement then
(04/20 23:21:14) Nick White: I hope so.
(04/20 23:21:17) Sumatria: The pod seems to be unstable though
(04/20 23:21:2 Andrew Eldred whispers to Nick.
(04/20 23:23:00) Nick White: So what else is going on?
(04/20 23:23:16) slider: Someone broke the new pod
(04/20 23:23:26) Dudemom_2000: You missed one of the greatest Pod Parties ever, Nick
(04/20 23:23:32) Andrew Eldred: Ah, I expected a Gira trip.
(04/20 23:23:42) Nick White: Bummer, I love Pod Parties.
(04/20 23:23:43) Andrew Eldred: Uhm, why doesn't someone ask how GZ calibration is going?
(04/20 23:23:59) Nadnerb: why don't you?
(04/20 23:23:59) vid: DM... the sequel might be on saturday
(04/20 23:24:10) Dudemom_2000: hurray!!!!
(04/20 23:24:21) Jazz: Awww. I can't come on Saturday

(04/20 23:25:36) Andros: Did he say anything good?
(04/20 23:26:01) Jazz: At least he answered my request for him to come in and see us
(04/20 23:26:09) Dudemom_2000 nods her head
(04/20 23:26:15) rivenraft: he's in the city
(04/20 23:26:15) Andros: Thanks jazz for asking
(04/20 23:26:19) Dudemom_2000: that was nice of him

(04/20 23:26:52) Jazz: It's nice to have lots of visitors
(04/20 23:26:54) Andrew Eldred: It's like... a population!
(04/20 23:27:07) Jazz: Check out the imager while you're here
(04/20 23:27:16) Jazz: Lots of info there
(04/20 23:27:57) Andrew Eldred: Just for the record, that was pretty nicely civilized.

..(04/20 23:28:27) Dudemom_2000: I am glad he stopped by. It bodes well at least for him in keeping dialogue open between the explorers and the DRC
(04/20 23:28:45) Jazz: Yes. And he didn't get mobbed too badly this time
(04/20 23:28:59) Jazz: So thank you everyone
(04/20 23:29:13) vid: I'm glad he answered the question about the pod... feel a little safer now...
(04/20 23:29:14) Melcabral: shorah all
(04/20 23:29:20) Dudemom_2000: Well if we can come to some sort of order when the DRC show up and then we can ask our questions
(04/20 23:29:24) Jazz: I just think everyone was so surprised to see him, that they didn't have anything to ask! lol
(04/20 23:29:30) Janine: I'm glad you feel safe vid
(04/20 23:29:36) vid: Whoa... hey Janine!
(04/20 23:29:39) Andros: Did thend released part 2 and 3 of the creation the internet?
(04/20 23:29:43) Janine: I don't feel safe in that pod
(04/20 23:29:45) Dudemom_2000: I don't.....that place creeps me out....

..(04/20 23:29:51) Dudemom_2000 shivers
(04/20 23:29:56) vid: I don't feel safe in MOST of the pods...
(04/20 23:30:01) Jazz: hehe
(04/20 23:30:03) Janine: lol agreed
(04/20 23:30:12) vid: but.. I feel a little better now knowing that it's not Yeesha messing around with us
(04/20 23:30:16) j'aiefel: feels great..if you are a salamander
(04/20 23:30:17) Dudemom_2000: plus my feet are wet and clammy
(04/20 23:30:24) Jazz: Eeeeuuuw
(04/20 23:30:29) Dudemom_2000: I needed a beer after going there.....
(04/20 23:30:34) Kermit D Frog: bugger. just got back. anyway, just so you know, after being at the ADM meeting yesterday I saw 3 things. They've got it in for the DRC. They'd rather see people get fired from the DRC than the DRC change as they are. And they have no care for PR - they are snippy and at worst rude to even little me. and I'm just a frogman.

.(04/20 23:42:17) Dudemom_2000: Well, when the DRC come to visit can we set up some guidelines of etiquette?
(04/20 23:42:42) Jazz: That's an excellent idea DM. Post that in our Suggestion Box
(04/20 23:42:45) Nichola: yeah.. like act normal
(04/20 23:42:55) Jazz: www.uruguilds.org
(04/20 23:43:00) Nichola: the Barho agrees
(04/20 23:43:04) Dudemom_2000: you know like raise your hand and then have someone call each one in turn to ask their question and let the DRC answer if they want to
(04/20 23:43:20) Jazz: We have the facility now
(04/20 23:43:23) Jazz wants to ask a question...
(04/20 23:43:25) Dudemom_2000: ok. I will

..(04/20 23:45:25) Jazz: I wanted to ask him about the Town Hall meeting
(04/20 23:45:51) Jazz: If a member of the DRC would attend
(04/20 23:45:55) Dudemom_2000: I have not kept up....Is there going to be one scheduled?
(04/20 23:46:01) Jazz: 28th April
(04/20 23:46:05) Dudemom_2000: ooh

.(04/20 23:46:20) Jazz: lol. It's all on the uruguild forum
..(04/20 23:46:29) Dudemom_2000: ok. I will check there

(04/20 23:49:30) Kermit D Frog: now we just have to figure out a way to save the ADM from themselves
(04/20 23:49:54) Bukwheet: I didn't know that was possible
(04/20 23:50:16) Kermit D Frog: I always like to believe theres... possibilities
(04/20 23:50:3 Jazz: If there are enough of us who believe in the RR, they will naturally fade away
(04/20 23:51:11) Andrew Eldred: Agreed.

Nick left and then returned later

..(04/21 00:04:21) Jazz: Did you talk to Sydney?
(04/21 00:04:2 Nichola: lol.. if you are serious.. let me know.. I even have the photos to prove it
(04/21 00:04:29) Andrew Eldred: Hey Nick, how's the GZ calibration going?
(04/21 00:04:31) Nick White: I did.
(04/21 00:04:39) Nick White: Pretty good from what I understand.

(04/21 00:04:50) Nichola: oh jeez...
(04/21 00:04:50) Jazz: We've all been doing our bit for it
(04/21 00:04:59) Andrew Eldred: Jazz, sorry I cut off your question there.
(04/21 00:05:01) Nick White: Laxman is happy.
(04/21 00:05:09) Jazz: Phew
(04/21 00:05:11) Andrew Eldred: So, how'd the talk go?
(04/21 00:05:16) Nick White: Good.
(04/21 00:05:17) Jazz: I'd hate to see him unhappy. lol
(04/21 00:05:25) Nichola is sitting down for "Nick White" hour
(04/21 00:05:31) Andrew Eldred: ... A man of many words.
(04/21 00:05:32) Time: Ooo, It's the famous Nick White. Pleased to meet you.
(04/21 00:05:35) Time bows
(04/21 00:05:35) Nichola:
(04/21 00:05:45) Jazz: What did she have to say?
(04/21 00:05:46) Nick White: Same Time.
(04/21 00:06:01) Nick White: Told me about her little group. Wants to meet with Cate.
(04/21 00:06:11) Nick White: Don't trust the DRC - secrets, lies, Watson....
(04/21 00:06:17) Nick White: Blah, blah, blah.

(04/21 00:06:19) Time: DocOlanA wanted me to ask you if you had any more documents for the SoDK to distribute when we finish the creation story in 2 weeks.
(04/21 00:06:23) Jazz: Hmmm. that's what she's been saying
(04/21 00:06:27) Nick White: You bet Time.
(04/21 00:06:36) Time: Awesome. ^_^
(04/21 00:06:39) Nick White: Just give me Time.
(04/21 00:06:44) Gondar: Hi all..
(04/21 00:06:45) Jazz starts to laugh
(04/21 00:06:49) Andrew Eldred: On D'ni philosophy? Because I asked so long ago...
(04/21 00:06:51) Time: Will do. I'm sure he'll be happy to hear it.
(04/21 00:06:59) Nick White: When it' s Time I'll give them to you.
(04/21 00:07:06) Jazz groans
(04/21 00:07:12) Andrew Eldred: Haha
(04/21 00:07:1 Time: Sounds like a plan. Thanks again for the first one. It's been a very interesting read. ^_^
(04/21 00:07:20) Nick White: Time will tell everyone else.
(04/21 00:07:23) Jazz: Jokes aren't getting better
(04/21 00:07:36) Nick White: Give me Time.
(04/21 00:07:44) Time laughs
(04/21 00:07:45) Nick White: Time knows all.
(04/21 00:07:49) Jazz: Will Cate meet with her, do you think?
(04/21 00:07:49) Nick White: Alright.
(04/21 00:07:53) Nick White: No.

(04/21 00:07:56) Jazz: Good
(04/21 00:07:57) Bukwheet: I don't think Time flies, though
(04/21 00:08:05) Jazz groans again
(04/21 00:08:07) Gondar: But fruit does.
(04/21 00:08:12) Jazz slaps Gondar
(04/21 00:08:15) Time: I've flown once or twice. ^_^
(04/21 00:08:1 Gondar: Ow!
(04/21 00:08:27) Nick White: And boy your arms hurt...
(04/21 00:08:29) Andrew Eldred: Did you tell her Cate wouldn't?
(04/21 00:08:31) Gondar laughs
(04/21 00:08:32) Nick White: Yeah.
(04/21 00:08:41) Andrew Eldred: And her response?
(04/21 00:08:59) Nick White: Well I told her Cate doesn't meet with every little group that comes along.
(04/21 00:09:12) Jazz: I bet she liked that . . . not
(04/21 00:09:24) Andrew Eldred: But she has a professor! From ... some university!
(04/21 00:09:30) Andrew Eldred employs sarcasm.
(04/21 00:09:50) Jazz: I believe they will try and get their own way by any means
(04/21 00:10:04) Nick White: Well, I like Sydney. She has reasons to be upset but I'm not worried about her group.
(04/21 00:10:0 Time: We talking about the Anti DRC movement people?
(04/21 00:10:13) Jazz: Yes, Time
(04/21 00:10:13) Nick White: Yeah.
(04/21 00:10:23) Nick White: Time is ticking.

(04/21 00:10:30) Jazz moves away from Time
(04/21 00:10:31) Andrew Eldred: Time has come for that discussion.
(04/21 00:10:32) Time: Ah, I met some fo them last night. They didn't really seem like a pitchforks and torches bunch.
(04/21 00:10:34) Gondar: I figure it'll blow over one way or another. They work themselves up, and then lose interest and move on to another crusade.
(04/21 00:10:50) Nick White: Yeah, that's what I figure.
(04/21 00:10:53) Jazz: We are trying to stymie their progress
(04/21 00:11:01) Nichola: Syd.. think she has you wrapped around her finger.. there Nick.. sorry to say
(04/21 00:11:10) Time: When i asked them about their stance they just wanted a bit more openness as far as I could tell.
(04/21 00:11:12) Nick White: I'm staying out of the politics.
(04/21 00:11:17) Nichola: me too
(04/21 00:11:1 Gondar: Smart move.
(04/21 00:11:1 Andrew Eldred: Uh-huh.
(04/21 00:11:27) Time: A wise decision, if I do say so myself. ^_^
(04/21 00:11:29) Nick White: No one has me wrapped. Not even Jazz.
(04/21 00:11:31) Jazz: Will we be seeing more of you now?
(04/21 00:11:42) Nichola: hmm.. lol
(04/21 00:11:43) Jazz: lol. Never thought I did
(04/21 00:11:46) Andrew Eldred: Yeah, why the long silence?
(04/21 00:11:49) Gondar: Nick White: Unwrapped
(04/21 00:11:53) Nick White: Does Heaven ever show up anymore?
(04/21 00:12:02) Jazz: Not often

(04/21 00:13:52) Time shrugs
(04/21 00:13:55) Nick White: There it is. Time has spoken.
(04/21 00:14:00) Jazz: Oh dear!
(04/21 00:14:03) Gondar: I think everyone would ask the questions I wondered so saves me asking now and bugging poor Nick.
(04/21 00:14:04) Nichola laughs

(04/21 00:15:16) Nadnerb: he said, "there is a new age" and linked out.
(04/21 00:15:21) Dudemom_2000: yeah, I don't think he meant the pod
(04/21 00:15:23) Gondar: Well, think about it..

(04/21 00:15:50) Carl Palmner: Did he say why he hasnt been around lately?
(04/21 00:15:51) Jazz: I don't think any of the DRC have ever attended one before. Despite being asked
(04/21 00:16:03) Carl Palmner: What TH Meeting Jazz?
(04/21 00:16:07) Gondar: He said a new age, besides another one also unreleased.

(04/21 00:16:09) Jazz: On 28 April
(04/21 00:16:10) Nichola: Kudos to you Jazz for asking !
(04/21 00:16:21) Gondar: Oh, and the DRC did back before the great linking..
(04/21 00:16:23) Jazz: It just goes to prove what I have been saying
(04/21 00:16:34) Jazz: If you ask politely, you are more likely to get what you want
(04/21 00:16:42) Gondar: Heck, it was in the middle of one when the link happened.
(04/21 00:16:52) Bukwheet: Yeah, none of this pressuring stuff
(04/21 00:16:53) Nichola: what?!?! treat people like they are really people.. and you will get a good response?
(04/21 00:16:55) Nadnerb: yeah... quite right.

Nick didn't seem concerned about the Anti-DRC Movement.. sort of just brushed it off as another flash-in-the-pan movement. Here today... gone tomorrow!

... or the DRC are just so used to this group that it doesn't phase them anymore. We have had anti-DRC people since prologue, so it is nothing new for any of us that have been around since back then. Point is, whether you like the DRC or not ... they aren't going anywhere.
jolly
ah well...to me these ADM members seem to me like a bunch of selfrichous egoetistical (man my spelling is bad lol) nut cases...not to be rude...without the DRC who do thank for the new ages....besides CYAN, i mean the DRC is restoring things and doin their best to get these ages out to us...if they dont approve of the DRC then why do they play URU to begin with?

Some will say that they are playing these anti-DRC characters in an IC fashion, for the purpose of ginning up excitement and interest in the game, especially during times when the game is "slow" and no new ages have been released. What they do not seem to consider is that their IC behavior is disturbing to others who just want to enjoy the game, without an additional political element. As for me, I see enough "politics" in RL, and so I don't want to see it in the game, too.

Do you think that Cyan is fostering this behavoir -or did foster it- with the entire premise based upon Yeesha's comments? Also the disturbance in the cavern with everyone linkiing back to Relto (before my time, but I read about it). The comment on ginning up the controversy is a solid one I think -but still unsure.

It's too bad all the same that many take the controversey too far, I haven't got too much patience for it.

I've had some conversation with a few players playing IC. Most are very nice... but some I have found to be quite disturbing. People are complicated and some who are playing this game may take it more "real" than it actually is.
