So I finally got to talk with Mr. Sharper one on one, with no one breathing over my shoulder, or judging my words at every turn. I hope Sharper has no problem with me posting the log, as it may squelch any fears or tention amongst the explorers. I missed logging from the beginning, but it was pretty much me asking to talk to him, him wanting to know what I wanted, and me trying to remind him of what we had talked about before.

Edited for some misspelling. Also the comment about the Great Tree was taken from chats held all during the hiatus of the DRC, and does not represent every member of the Great Tree.

14 21:59:53) Chat.log started...
(03/14 22:00:01) From Douglas Sharper in Douglas Sharper's Teledahn: I don't.
(03/14 22:00:04) To Douglas Sharper: The last time we argued?
(03/14 22:00:10) To Douglas Sharper: It was about Phil
(03/14 22:00:34) From Douglas Sharper in Douglas Sharper's Teledahn: Sorry V. YOu'll have to refresh my memory. I've moved on
(03/14 22:00:4 From Douglas Sharper in Douglas Sharper's Teledahn: Phil is ancient history.
(03/14 22:00:5 To Douglas Sharper: Now everyone thinks I'm a hothead because I faced off with you. You did not recieve my email?
(03/14 22:01:19) To Douglas Sharper: Four years ago is far from ancient
(03/14 22:01:33) From Douglas Sharper in Douglas Sharper's Teledahn: In my book it is.
(03/14 22:02:04) To Douglas Sharper: This has more to do with my inability to understand after all you did that they would just allow you to come back.
(03/14 22:02:12) To Douglas Sharper: I would like to hope you've changed
(03/14 22:02:29) From Douglas Sharper in Douglas Sharper's Teledahn: Send me an ivite to where you are. Let's hash this out like men.
(03/14 22:02:30) To Douglas Sharper: But that does not mean anyone should forgive you just like that
(03/14 22:02:42) To Douglas Sharper: I'll send you an invite to Negilahn
(03/14 22:03:00) From Douglas Sharper in Douglas Sharper's Teledahn: See you there.
(03/14 22:03:46) To LdyDrgn: meeting with him now.
(03/14 22:04:19) From LdyDrgn in LdyDrgn's Nexus: well done!
(03/14 22:04:24) To Douglas Sharper: I'm here.....
(03/14 22:05:31) Vormaen: Hello Sharper
(03/14 22:05:35) Douglas Sharper: The face rings a bell.
(03/14 22:05:50) Vormaen: Yeah......it was in your Great Tree hood
(03/14 22:06:06) Vormaen: You and I got into a heated discussion about Phil
(03/14 22:06:16) Vormaen: But this isn't about Phil
(03/14 22:06:22) Vormaen: It's about you
(03/14 22:06:24) Douglas Sharper: What is it about?
(03/14 22:06:29) Vormaen: OK....
(03/14 22:06:39) Vormaen: Things that transpired back in 03
(03/14 22:07:14) Vormaen: I believe every man can make up for their mistakes, but people tell me I should just forgive and forget
(03/14 22:07:25) Vormaen: But nothing has been cleared up.
(03/14 22:07:33) Douglas Sharper: You're going to have to stop beating around the bush here boy.
(03/14 22:07:45) Vormaen: So I want to know the truth about a few things.
(03/14 22:08:01) Vormaen: One......why did you take Phil's book.......
(03/14 22:08:20) Vormaen: Accident?
/14 22:08:59) Douglas Sharper: What does it matter?
(03/14 22:09:39) Vormaen: Because, Phil was a good man, even if he was a little off. You may have caused his predicament.
(03/14 22:09:54) Vormaen: I just want to know your motives.
/14 22:09:56) Douglas Sharper: My intentions were never to harm Phil.
(03/14 22:10:00) Vormaen: Good.
(03/14 22:10:09) Vormaen: Ok.....big one
(03/14 22:10:26) Vormaen: I know you don't like the fact we have read your journals
(03/14 22:10:40) Vormaen: And I suspect you may be many things, but not a liar.
(03/14 22:11:04) Vormaen: The books you had Nick "hide", were they returned?
/14 22:11:30) Douglas Sharper: I"m not sure where you're going with all of this?
[b]/14 22:11:32) Douglas Sharper: What are you after?
(03/14 22:11:42) Douglas Sharper: Why do I need to sit here and explain my life to you of all people?
(03/14 22:11:51) Douglas Sharper: We going to go through my whole life here?[/]
(03/14 22:11:56) Vormaen: The truth. I want to believe you're a changed man......but somehow it's hard for me to grasp
(03/14 22:12:30) Vormaen: It's no secret I'm the loudest opposition to you being back here
[b]/14 22:12:37) Douglas Sharper: I haven't.
(03/14 22:12:43) Vormaen: Just check the DRC forums
/14 22:12:46) Douglas Sharper: Regardless what does it matter what I tell you?
(03/14 22:12:53) Douglas Sharper: The proof is in the pudding.
(03/14 22:13:00) Douglas Sharper: You'll have to judge for youself.[b]
(03/14 22:13:06) Vormaen: Why are you being so defensive?
[b]/14 22:13:13) Douglas Sharper: Ha!
(03/14 22:13:24) Douglas Sharper: I don't like being questioned as you are.
(03/14 22:13:30) Vormaen: Just like before, laughing at my inquiries.
(03/14 22:13:57) Vormaen: Hey, it would make things more comfortable for all of us if you let us know what you intentions are.
/14 22:14:1 Douglas Sharper: My intentions are to help this effort. The problem isn't me letting you know, it's you believing me.
(03/14 22:14:19) Vormaen: You did some mighty destructive things back then
/14 22:14:23) Douglas Sharper: I don't need this.
(03/14 22:14:29) Vormaen: I want to, trust me.
(03/14 22:14:46) Vormaen: Sharper, I'm not trying to prove you wrong.
/14 22:15:01) Douglas Sharper: Look it's a new page.
(03/14 22:15:05) Vormaen: If people can see me convinced, maybe it will make it easier.
/14 22:15:10) Douglas Sharper: You're going to have to watch and judge for yourself.
(03/14 22:15:24) Douglas Sharper: I'm not going to be blackmailed into thinking that I have to convince you to convince everyone else.
(03/14 22:15:29) Douglas Sharper: There are plenty of people who trust me.
(03/14 22:15:34) Vormaen: So can you tell me if you informed the DRC of the translations you took?
/14 22:15:40) Douglas Sharper: Ha!
(03/14 22:15:45) Douglas Sharper: Are you their lawyer?
(03/14 22:16:00) Vormaen: Sharper, even members of the Great Tree said they did not fully trust you.
(03/14 22:16:12) Vormaen: No, I am just a concerned explorer
/14 22:16:27) Douglas Sharper: Well, that is their decision.
(03/14 22:16:31) Douglas Sharper: I can't worry about all of them.
(03/14 22:16:37) Vormaen: We've been this route before, would it hurt you to be more open with us?
/14 22:16:54) Douglas Sharper: I'll be open when I need to be.
(03/14 22:17:05) Douglas Sharper: What is it you want to know that I"m not being open about?
(03/14 22:17:07) Vormaen: Well......
(03/14 22:17:27) Vormaen: I hope that you won't try to cause a war again, which is on a lot of folks minds.
/14 22:17:33) Douglas Sharper: Besides little nuggets from the past.
(03/14 22:17:41) Douglas Sharper: I'm not here to start a war.
(03/14 22:17:51) Vormaen: The translations! They obviously were of great importance for you to hide them from the DRC
(03/14 22:17:54) Vormaen: ok.
(03/14 22:18:02) Vormaen: That was my main concern
(03/14 22:18:20) Vormaen: The past always directly ties to the future.
(03/14 22:18:41) Vormaen: So are you not going to comment on those translations?
(03/14 22:18:42) Douglas Sharper: V my problem is this.
(03/14 22:18:4 Vormaen: ok, listening.
(03/14 22:18:59) Douglas Sharper: You come in here acting as though you understood all that happened during those days - why translations were hidden.
(03/14 22:19:06) Douglas Sharper: You don't and I'm not about to explain them all to you now.
(03/14 22:19:06) Vormaen: ok.
(03/14 22:19:10) Douglas Sharper: But I had good reason.
(03/14 22:19:13) Vormaen: ok.
(03/14 22:19:20) Douglas Sharper: Many of which you are not aware.
(03/14 22:19:29) Vormaen: ok.
/14 22:19:33) Douglas Sharper: Talking to Kodama once in a while or reading my journal tells you nothing of the story
(03/14 22:19:52) Vormaen: Can you say if you were worried about power going to the wrong hands?
/14 22:20:57) Douglas Sharper: Yes.
(03/14 22:21:06) Vormaen: OK, that clears up a lot.
(03/14 22:21:17) Vormaen: Are you still worried about it?
/14 22:21:21) Douglas Sharper: No.
(03/14 22:21:32) Vormaen: Good. That pretty much answers that.
/14 22:21:3 Douglas Sharper: Are you satisfied?
(03/14 22:21:44) Vormaen: Yes, for now.
(03/14 22:21:52) Vormaen: While I have you here.
(03/14 22:22:07) Vormaen: Have you been outside these pods yet?
14 22:22:11) Douglas Sharper: Yes.
(03/14 22:22:1 Vormaen: Have you seen that?
(03/14 22:22:25) Vormaen points
(03/14 22:22:3 Vormaen: Something blinking out there
(03/14 22:23:05) Vormaen: Anything to do with the wildlife decline?
/14 22:23:16) Douglas Sharper: Not sure what you are referring to.
(03/14 22:23:32) Vormaen: Under the second farthest trees, right hand side
(03/14 22:23:42) Vormaen: under the bush next to it.
(03/14 22:23:49) Vormaen: See it?
(03/14 22:23:57) Vormaen: A faint blinking.
(03/14 22:24:02) Vormaen: red I think.
(03/14 22:24:25) Vormaen: Thought you might want to investigate it.
/14 22:24:36) Douglas Sharper: I don't think I'm hunting a red light.
(03/14 22:24:41) Douglas Sharper: I'll tell you that.
(03/14 22:24:47) Vormaen: I know......but not sure what it is.
(03/14 22:24:52) Vormaen: ok.
/14 22:24:53) Douglas Sharper: Alright.
(03/14 22:25:05) Douglas Sharper: I need to be moving along.
(03/14 22:25:0 Douglas Sharper: We done here?
(03/14 22:25:0 Vormaen: Ok.
(03/14 22:25:15) Vormaen: Yes........
/14 22:25:19) Douglas Sharper: Very well.
(03/14 22:25:36) Vormaen: Shorah Sharper
/14 22:25:36) Douglas Sharper: Look forward to having you on board.
(03/14 22:25:41) Vormaen: Will be there.
/14 22:25:43) Douglas Sharper: If not now, eventually.
(03/14 22:25:52) Vormaen: Will think it over.
(03/14 22:25:52) Douglas Sharper (I'm on the surface, be back in a minute):
(03/14 22:25:5 ...Chat.log stopped.

Good to know. Interesting, too, that there was something of POWER hidden in those texts Sharper took... :shock:

Wow, Sharper is a good actor--if I didn't know he was an official character I would honestly think that this was a genuine heated conflict in an OOC sense.

Now I want the rest of the Sharper-Kodama-DRC story! :(

Wow! I never realized how much of a mean person/people this guy is.

Great acting on Cyan's part! 8)

So Vormean, why did you decide to take such a forward tone with Sharper?

Wow. Interesting conflict... neat to see how Sharper deals with his past.

(And OOCly on Cyan's part, very interesting to have him do one-on-one with an explorer to resolve issues FROM that past!)

None of the actors for the DRC have been disclosed. It will likely stay this way.

Sharper sounds to me like a man who is a master of misdirection, uncertain of his own past, vague and unwilling be candid.

JWPlatt sounds like deja vu.
:lol:

There are so many possibilities here. Sharper was deliciously vague. And yet I've never heard of him being so direct at the same time - at least, not so direct with someone confronting him.

I'm amused at the replies above. Some people calling Sharper a mean person/people... others applying the same label to Vormaen. To those naysaying Vormaen, let me just say... Sharper's words apply here too. You weren't there, you don't know the whole story, don't judge.

There was a lot of judging three years ago, on very little information. When nobody has a clear picture, mistakes are going to be made. The DRC saw one picture. Yeesha saw another. Sharper saw a third. And I'm not quite sure if anyone understood what Phil had seen (Phil included).

Perhaps someday Sharper can be convinced to reveal more of the picture he saw... but I doubt he'll share it under interrogation. 8)

Funny... [spoiler]Sharper has added a new entry about this conversation you guys had, Vormaen. It made me want to come here and see if anyone else had seen that. I see at least one person has. Interesting....

And so we do change the story, each in our own, not always expected way.... Hmm... [/spoiler]

:shock:

I'm not worried about it. One person who had issues with Sharper in the past, trying to resolve those issues (even in a blunt way) - it's not like we're going to scare Cyan away or something. ;)

If it's in a group setting obviously overriding others and stuff is not kosher, but if you're lucky enough to get a one-on-one with an NPC, heck, do whatever you want on your own time as your own self. *shrug* It's your choice. How the NPCs react to you is on your own shoulders.
