First i must apologise for the lack of update over the last couple of weeks. Fortunately apart from significent piece of out of cavern news, there has only been one piece of important in Cavern news. Normal service will be resumed from now.

The doors to the Gallery hve been blocked off and have had the power turned off.

11.18 AM

Marie reports that the rescue teams are now working on the 2nd floor for a little over an hour. The third floor had suffered more damage than anticipated so the going was slower. Laxman has not been able to determine the reason Wheelys KI went offline.

1.00 PM

Nick White links to a Bevin. Says Sharper has seen the predator kill the Urwin and that he is tracking it. Says Sharper will not be sending anymore messages for fear of spooking the predator. Nick then went on to reveal that the DRC had found some weird symbols on the 2nd floor of the collapsed building. He added it sounded similiar to something he had found carved on a tree in Negilahn but which he could'nt photograph. He described it as being something like a percent symbol with a circle at the top and one at the bottom on the other side divided by a wavy line. The circle at the bottom is filled in. Says the DRC should have been finding out stuff about the Bahro long before this. Marie is asked in the City about the DRC finding a symbol and she confirms that one had indeed been found.

The rescue effort continues, with explorers gathered outside the pub following events.

7.00 PM

The rescue reaches its final stages. Wheely reports the Bahro is getting increasingy aggitated and is making speech like sounds. Suddenly she says it is saying 'Noloben' repeatedly.

The rescue team regrouped, and carefully made there way back down into the room Wheely has been trapped in. They have confirmed that neither Rossette or Wheely are alive.
The Bahro was no where to be found. I will not give specific details, out of respect, but it is certain Wheely was not killed by the collapse.
It is an horrific seen. I'm sorry. I need to go.

8.45 PM New Relto page found

May 21st

Earlier today explorers gathered in Bevins heard the anguished cries of a father trying to contact his trapped daughter. Explorers who had gained access to the city relayed the words of Michael Enberg trying to contact his daughter via her KI, which Laxman had managed to remotely turn on. After what seemed an eternity Wheely's voice was finally heard. She told a story of youthful exploration gone terribly wrong. She said she and her friend Rosette (Rose) Taylor had sneaked into the crack at the back of the Kahlo Pub corridor and had found a room full of carvings. When Rose reached out and touched one it glowed and a Bahro appeared. Wheely said it reached out toward them as if to touch there Relto books, then screamed and linked out. Following this there was a cave in trapping Wheely and possibly killing her friend. She told her father of her fear when she found her Relto book wouldn't work. She thought herself safe, as it would allow her to escape. Rescue teams are working at this minute, careful removing the tons of rubble encasing Wheely and Rose. Hoping against hope to reach them in time to save them both.

11.00 AM

Wheely is contacted. Shes is apparently ok but tired and wants to sleep. Despite her father asking to stay awake she goes to sleep. The rescue starts in ernest.

12.00 PM

The DRC send a KI message informing exploresr that the City has re-opened. Rossette is apparently dead killed in the initial collapase but Wheely is alive and a rescue is underway. The Kahlo Pub will remained closed.

1.10 PM

Marie makes a statement in the City. Says she cannot say how along the recue will take but probably days. Confirms that Roses family is being contacted. Says the rescue temas are well trained and equipped. She acknowledged the offers of help from explorers but at this time they are not needed. Says the release of Minkata is under review but does not think it will be delayed.

2.00 PM

Explorers gather in Tokotah Plaza to form a spiral in an attempt to make contact with Yeesha or the Bahro. The excavation efforts continue.

3.00 PM

Wheely wakes up again as the the recurers get closer. She says she can see two blue eyes on the ceiling and that they are glowing. She thinks they are watching her and that they might be Bahro. Odd Bahro noises are heard in the City in the direction of Library or Palace. Then the sounds of multiple linkings is heard. Wheely says that the 'Bahro' is moving toward her.

5.39 PM

Marie gives a further update on the rescue. She says the recue team has reached the third floor and progress continues. Wheely is on the first floor. Asked if anything had been heard from Wheely she says nothing in the last two hours. Asked how long the rescue was estimated to take now she said at least another day and a half. Assuning of course nothing else happens in the meantime. Asked about Whellys KI she says it is fine as far as she knows. Says the best thing explorers can do at this time is to offer their support in prayers.

7.00 PM

THe excavation team is getting closer. Wheely draws the Bahro symbol for rain at Enbergs suggestion (Enberg says remember how we draw it to together) THe Bahro apparently reaches out and 'takes' it but does nothing, disappearing and reappearing. Wheely says she is feeling worse and is getting scared. Her voice gets weaker. She says her legs and arms are numb and tingly and it is hurting her to talk.

The DRC send out a new KI message updating explorers on the curreent state of the rescue.

11.14 PM

Wheelys KI goes off. Explores gather in the Plaza and from the Bahro symbol for rain in hopes ths may get Wheely some much needed water.

May 20th

08.45 Explorers in the main City ignore the DRC's warnings and congregate outside the Kahlo Pub to examine the crack and debris. At this time there is not a lot to see.

08.50 Nick White visits the Guild of Greeters bevin and talks of his and Douglas Sharpers visit to Negilahn. Says he and Sharper are planning on staying a few days. He said Sharper has the impression that something is goung to happen, the Urwin he has been watching is acting weird. Says they wont be visible from the Pod windows as they will be to far out in the jungle. When asked about the structural damage to the city that had been reported. He said he wasn't aware of any, said he would let Sharper know. Apparently he had not noticed the message on his KI. When warned by explorers not to on the hunt, he shrugged them off with the comment that'he didn't plan on being anymore attractive to the predator than he already was'.

12.45 Enberg links to the main City and talks to explorers at the entrance to the Pub. He warns them to stay away. Says things maybe worse than was first thought, He said the buildings structural integrity may have been compromised. he said that it is safe on the steps. The crack runs further than they first thought. Showed concern that the alleyway had not been barriered off but says its others decision. When asked why the crack is not present in the city instances, he said he didn't know. He said tha there where many instances and that the DRc had not checked them. When asked about a crack which some explorers thought was new he said he didn't think so but he would go and consult some documents to confirm. He then left with the admonition to 'Please stay out of the building'.

15.20 Wheely and her friend Rosette enter the Cavern and visit the Uru Obesession Bevin looking for markers. They are warned by explorers to stay out of the Kahlo Pub. Wheely shrugs them off saying it is just her Dad being over cautious as usual. Then leave saying they are going to the main City to look for more markers. Rosette comes from Portland and this is her first time in the Cavern.

15.30 Wheely and Rosette seen in the City collecting markers.They meet explorers in the Pub alley. They are again warned of the dangers and Wheely is a little more receptive but still wants to see the crack. Wheely then apparently heads off for the Library leaving Rosette collecting markers in the pub. Subsequently she messages Rosette asking her whereabouts to which she replies 'in that alley'. Wheely says forget it and come to the library she thinks she has found another crack 'downstairs'.

17.45 Greydragon drops by the Safety First bevin to chat with explorers.

There are reports that a old/new piece of headgear has shown up in one of the ages.

20.00 New DRC message appears on explorers KI's

KI Light
Dear Explorers,
Recently, the DRC have found a machine that allows the KI to emit a light. At the moment, the light will only stay on for a very short period of time (A few seconds). We are in the process of discovering how to make the light last for a longer amount of time.

The DRC

20.19 Explorers report Bahro screams in the City and there is a sighting at the Library. Laxman, Enberg and Marie are seen heading for the main City. There are reports that the crack has worsened and that there is more debris. The DRC ask explorers to link out of the City and back to there bevins where they should be safe.
Laxman says Wheely and her friend have turned off there KI's. Messages between the DRC members suggest that she has been missing for at least the previous two hours. Laxman and Enberg investigate the library but find no changes. They suggest that Wheely may have been mistaken about there being another crack. They contact Marie Sutherland who is on the Great Stqair. A loud rumbling explosion is then heard and Marie reports that the crack has got worse. The DRC urgently request that the city be evacuated in preparation for mounting a search and rescue mission. Marie asks Laxman to shutdown any machinery which might be causing vibrations. Marie agrees to contact Cate as part of the emergency response protocol. Enberg leaves the city to look for maps, once he is gone the following exchange between Marie and Kaxman is overheard:
Laxmasn: 'Marie, this could be very bad ....considering Michael's other incident'
Marie: 'His wife?'
20.50 A new KI message is sent to explorers

MAIN CITY SHUT DOWN
Explorers,
For those who are not yet aware, a crack was discovered early yesterday afternoon in one of the buildings in the City. Explorers were warned to stay out of that area as a precautionary measure.

Unfortunately, there was a colapse in that area tonight at 8:40pm cavern time. We have not yet determined the exact cause of the colapse, or the severity of the damage, so we are closing down the main City to explorers until we have more information.

Michael Endberg's daughter, Wheely, and her friend, Rosette, have turned off their KIs, and are still missing. Victor Laxman is looking for a way to activate their KIs remotely.

In the meantime, those of you with access to the other instances of the city: we cannot keep you out of them, but if you choose to visit them, please be extra cautious. We have seen in the past that things that happen in the main city also happen in the instances so we cannot be sure that the same thing will not happen elsewhere.

21.10 DRC members turn off there KI's to concentrate on the search and rescue. ResEngs spread out to various bevins to facilitate communication between the DRC and explorers.

21.40 ResEngs are reporting (unofficially) that a KI signal has been detected from beyond the crack in the pub. Laxman is still trying to connect remotely to Wheely's KI but the suspection is that it is hers.

According to Nick White, Enbergs wife was killed in a climbing accident in Oregon when Wheely was a small child.

In addition Nick White was in Negilhn when the KI mails went out. He linked to the City to help, leaving Sharper alone. Nick can't link back for fear of spooking the predator. This leaves Sharper on his own to deal with it.

We await further developments.



[spoiler=May 19th]

Reports that a new Relto page is available.

Douglas Sharper in the Uru Obssesion Bevin

Says he has'nt seen so many people in a hood since the good old days, maybe something is finally happening. He was asked about the books he was supposed to have taken and if he would consider releasing them. He said no he had'nt any books to give. He went on to talk about the Negilahn situation and the 'predator'. Says he has spent quite a bit of time in the outer areas of Negilahn and that he has built a blind, hide of sorts. He said he planned to take Nick tommorrow morning. Said he had been watching an Urwin closely for a while and that he had reason to believe he was about to find something out. He said it was a very nasty predator. Asked about Nick's presence he said no one seemed to mind, in fact he'd been encouraged to take hi. 'Maybe they think he'll get killed or something'. He said that the Urwin would be the prey. Asked if he had seen Bahro he said in the distance, remanents here and there, like we all have. Nothing close up. Asked if he had heard from Phil or Dr Watson, he said nothing from Phil and that 'Dr Watson that old boy is probably roaming around in a cave somewhere'.

Victor Laxman in the Begginers Bevin.

Victor started by giving an explanatiuon of the reasons for Calibrationg the Great Zero. Said he had been monitoring progress and that we where making good progress. He said repeating the missions helps the calibration, so any additional missions completed where a great help. He said the calibration meter was set-up by him based on monitoring the accuracy levels as best as he was able. He said the DRC would be working on Restoration for most of the month and then for a scheduled week they would be making more contact with explorers to pas on information and answer questions. When asked about the state of the Gahressen wall he said it was undergoing renovetion after a 'falling' incident which slightly injured a resEng. Said it would be a while before it was open but that it was working better than ever. He wanted to say that he was aware that some informnation had been released 'unofficially', he said that it wasn't neccessarily a bad thing and our help in spreading information was appreciated. But the DRC was concerned that the information was correct. When the DRC's current lack of a translator was raised and that members of the community where willing to help, he said that he'd raise it ae the next DRC meeting. He was asked what was known about the Bahro. Hesaid his expriance ws the same as ours. He mentioned that they where turning up in every age the DRC has access to even those being restored. He said they where very interseting creatures but very hard to study. asked about the Nick situation he said he liked the guy, but it was a 'corporate decision' which he left to Cate. When he was asked about the City population cap, he said it was a safety, preservation and a KI issue. Asked about the marker missions he said that most where sited by the the D'Ni but that he had added a few of his own where he thought it would improve accuracy. The ones we have to jump for where definately D'Ni he was more safety minded. Asked if the DRC had any contact with Yeesha. He said no direct contact. They did'nt oppose her, but neccessarily understand her. They think that they are on the same page as her as far as the restoration went but love the chance to ask her. He then announced that a KI message would be sent soon announcing the opening of Minkata and that there would be a celebration of somesort to mark it.

Soon after a KI message is recieved announcing the Minkata opening for Thursday to co-incide with the visait of Mr Rand Millar to the Cavern.

Victor then went on to visit the Guild of Greeters Bevin. Whilst there he said that he was detecting some seismic activity and rushed off.

Nick White showed up in a couple of Bevin's and had a run in with Sydney Austin. Accusations where made and rebuffed about the reasons for Nick sacking and his relationships in cavern. He confirmed he wou;d be going with Sharper to Negilahn. Later he turned up in the City at the pub. There was some conversation about Minkata, the Bahro and Rebek.

Enberg visits the pub and talks about the earlier siesmic activity. New crack in pub alley and barriers erected. Said that Laxman had informed him. He said he was assuming that there was no structural damage but that he wanted to do a full investigation. Asked if there was any danger he said no as along as we stayed in safe areas.

Soon afterwards a KI merssage safety alert is issued.

SAFETY ALERT!

Dear Explorers,

As some of you have discovered, a small crack has appeared of the north wall of the alley near the public city's Kahlo pub. The most recent studies of that building has shown it to be stable, but it appears that that may no longer be the case. We do not have an explanation for this new crack, and we will be reevaluating the condition of the building to the north of the Kahlo Pub in the days ahead.

In the meantime, we ask that you consider this area to be dangerous and limit your explorations to other areas of the city.

Thank You,

The DRC

There are reports of increased Bahro screams in the city.

Enberg returns later to explain about the alert and the safety of the pub. He reccomends that people stay clear until a full invstigation has been done. Says the bar, the alley in fact the whole area should be avoided. He pointed out the new crack in the alley wall that had happened that day. Asks people to spread the word to stay out of the whole area.
[/spoiler]
[spoiler=May 3rd]

Cate links to the GOG Bevin asks people to join her in the auditorium. Once people had assembled she made the following announcement.

Nick White is no longer with the DRC. Nick was under strict guildelines while on probation and he broke those rules and our trust
We wish Nick the best of luck in whatever he pursues but, unfortunatley, that will not be the restoration of the D'ni civlization with us.
As to details, I'd rather not get into them but trust that Nick is aware of what he has done wrong and understands our decision.

She said that the DRC are not looking for a replacement for Nick White at this time. When she was asked if the DRC would be taking any action to prevent Nick White from coming to the Cavern, she said 'We have no control on who comes to the cavern'. Asked if the DRC where planning to change the way it interacts with explorers she said that 'we have talked about a few things'.

There is a new entry in Sharpers journal mentioning Nicks sacking.

Later in the day it was seen that both Sharpers and Nicks KI's where turned on and thast they had both linked to Teledahn.

The news post is currently in a confusing order -- neither top-to-bottom nor bottom-to-top.

(I think you want to move Cate's announcement to the top, or else rearrange the whole thing.)

Its in the same order as all the others. The most current at the top with the rest behind spoiler tags in the order they are posted in. So as to maintain consistancy with the rest i will leave things as they are. But thanks for the input.
