She could be keeping her KI in a pocket and only taking it out when she needs it.

...Ankle-KI?

I get none of that wet-dog Bahro smell, so that leaves Ms. Y.

One has to wonder what Cate will get out of all of this investment. The kind of outlay it takes to do what the DRC is currently doing is tremendous and the return from explorers is minimal at best. There is something larger here that we are missing.

She's all business and a charity endeavor of this magnitude is REALLY bad business.....The only way we can narrow it down is to find out all we can about her. Where does she get her money? What is her career above ground? Who are her partners?

We are all assuming that Cate is from the corporate world. Is there anything in all the previous logs where she is mentioned that supports this? The reason I ask is - there is one "company" I know of that has deep pockets and doesn't look for immediate return on its "investments". It's known to the world as the United States Government. Note - in the previous logs - where questions are asked about government involvement - there are no replies.

I may be off in left field here - but I work for Uncle Sam and Cate reminds me of some "Feds" I've run into over the years. Quite adept at avoiding answering direct questions. :lol:

"Off in left field?" :shock:

No offense, but I would say it's more like you've left the ballpark and drove into the city and scored some LSD and are now tripping in the park! :wink:

I can't, in my wildest imaginings, conceive of the US Gubmint putting any money into a game of any kind - except combat simulations.

Game? :? I believe the subject was investment in the restoration of D'ni.

Exactly! Military use for the D'ni linking technology? Stargates on a smaller scale? Write your own age link into an enemy installation? etc

RAWA has already addressed this issue:

Yes, it appears that the “special” avatars get flagged as being male, even if they were set up as females before getting their “special” avatar.

And no, it’s not part of the IC story that Cate and Marie are male, so let’s keep these comments in the OOC area. Thanks.

Meanwhile, I guess Cate and Marie are limited to “/me” emotes until that gets fixed.

:p

One thing RAWA has noticeably not disclaimed is Cate's lack of KI or Relto book. ;) So she's Bahro or related to Yeesha.

Please, are we being serious or not? I just can't tell...

I think the most likely explanation of no Relto book or KI is an oversight by Cyan - they simply forgot.

Not so much serious as trying to view what's happened as IC rather than OOC.

I don't think Cyan forgot to give her a Relto Book and a KI; their attention to detail is too good for that to happen! She can obviously use the Nexus without one and no one else can, so how to you explain that?

Right -- I don't think that we should look too much into things like this... next we'll have to be coming up with convoluted theories about why, when someone is in the Cavern, they are capable of doing only one dance. ;)

Didn't Laxman or Kodama say that the government thinks all of this is a game?

Simple: her avatar has been set to grant access to the Nexus, but the actual visual detail of the KI has been omitted.

Why is it automatically assumed that just because her Relto book and KI are not VISIBLE that it means she doesn't have them? Is there some D'ni law of physics that says you can't have a KI in your pocket? Is there something out there that says that a Relto book couldn't be hidden in a jacket?

Just because she doesn't DISPLAY these things doesn't mean she doesn't have them.

Very good point, macnbc.

To be honest, although I don't discount them completely, I think theories such as 'She is a Bahro' and even 'she is Yeesha's daughter' are extremely unlikely to have any truth in them.

My two cents:

Maybe she's a rep from UNESCO. Their job is to do things like this (this, of course, would be IC. UNESCO would certainly not get involved OOC). The US Government, well, it has deep pockets, but it has over 100 trillion dollars worth of holes in them. Of course, the the debt has never stopped a government before :?

if she didn't have a ki, she'd have to talk to people by voice. the text is via ki, right? isn't it more logical then to assume she has a ki then, than to assume she is a bahro offspring of yeesha in a human suit with a brain implant?

try the easy solution FIRST, folks. :wink:
