(06/26 03:44:48) Chat.log started...
(06/26 03:44:50) Sarah waves hello
(06/26 03:44:52) Deius: Welcome, Nick
(06/26 03:44:53) AKA: Hi Nick nice to see you again
(06/26 03:44:56) Jazz waves hello
(06/26 03:44:57) ireenquench waves hello
(06/26 03:44:57) Tayrtahn: we made a circle for you
(06/26 03:45:00) Nick White waves hello
(06/26 03:45:02) Yellowdog waves hello
(06/26 03:45:06) Jazz: Hi Nick
(06/26 03:45:07) Firesign: oh hey nick. good to see you.
(06/26 03:45:11) [Relayer] borg1985: Hi Nick
(06/26 03:45:17) Nick White: So everyone hear about the big Sharper debacle?
(06/26 03:45:20) ireenquench: you have news?
(06/26 03:45:21) Simon_Bitdiddle: Yah.
(06/26 03:45:23) Thend: Can't you stand in the middle like any normal rockstar?
(06/26 03:45:23) Jazz: Yep
(06/26 03:45:32) Deius: Sharper...what a fool
(06/26 03:45:36) Firesign: lol thend
(06/26 03:45:40) Nick White: Was anyone there?
(06/26 03:45:40) Jazz: Glad you're not going with him
(06/26 03:45:42) MikeFitz: The man has no fear
(06/26 03:45:45) Sarah: Not the most popular announcement he ever made.
(06/26 03:45:46) Firesign: i was nick
(06/26 03:46:05) Kam Uraki: Hey Nick. Okay, a bunch of us may have seen Engberg. Obviously, we've learned from the DRC, so we can't say for sure one way or another ;)r.
(06/26 03:46:05) ireenquench: I was. He seems crazy. Did Cate set him up?
(06/26 03:46:08) Thend: I was too Nick, it was nuts
(06/26 03:46:09) AKA: Yes I am happy you aren't going with Sharper also Nick
(06/26 03:46:15) Firesign: leave it to him to make a ruckus :)
(06/26 03:46:16) Nick White: That's what it sounded like. I wouldn't call him a fool but I understand the negative reaction.
(06/26 03:46:27) Simon_Bitdiddle: Settle down and let Nick talk folks.
(06/26 03:46:30) Moondweller: I saw Engberg briefly in the pub a few minutes ago - he's gone now of course
(06/26 03:46:30) Nick White: Regardless, Cate heard about it. Was not happy. She had another meeting with him.
(06/26 03:46:33) Firesign: he totally dropped a bomb
(06/26 03:46:37) Yellowdog: I wish he left the Spyroom book before he left....
(06/26 03:46:45) Firesign: oh, cate didnt know?
(06/26 03:46:54) Jazz: Where did he get the book, then?
(06/26 03:46:54) Nick White: Said she was sending him to Noloben for reconaisaance - not to kill a Bahro.
(06/26 03:46:59) FEENXFIRE: It sounds like he's being somewhat divisive.
(06/26 03:47:00) Jazz: Oh
(06/26 03:47:01) Firesign: i thought cate was giving him the noloben book
(06/26 03:47:09) Firesign: ohhhhhh
(06/26 03:47:14) Nine-O-Nine: oh boy ok
(06/26 03:47:19) Nick White: She was, just not to kill a Bahro.
(06/26 03:47:33) Firesign: so this was his own doing.
(06/26 03:47:33) Simon_Bitdiddle: That's... um... one way to interpret Reconaisance...
(06/26 03:47:35) Jazz: So it's all his idea
(06/26 03:47:42) Nick White: Sharper was not in a good mood this evening - had to calm him down.
(06/26 03:47:46) Nick White: Poor gy.
(06/26 03:47:57) Yellowdog: so did he go?
(06/26 03:47:58) Deius: He's going about it the wrong way...it will lead to no good
(06/26 03:48:01) ireenquench: You sure about that? Maybe she's just agitated that Sharper wasnt exactly along her lines, PR talky wise.
(06/26 03:48:03) Firesign: yeah, he was really really angry.
(06/26 03:48:13) Gondar: Don't blame him. The hood was ugly.
(06/26 03:48:19) Thend: So was he
(06/26 03:48:26) Gondar: surprised he lasted that long as he did. It was all personal attacks.
(06/26 03:48:27) Simon_Bitdiddle: Potshots-at-the-television angry or stompy-stompy angry?
(06/26 03:48:28) Firesign: he was angry when he got to the hood it seemed
(06/26 03:48:37) Nick White: I'm not going to sit here and defend him - I wasn't there - but I will tell you that he's a good man.
(06/26 03:48:42) Alant Sunir: I think we all empathize with him, but we all have a stake in this mess.
(06/26 03:48:44) Nick White: YOu don't know what that did to him last month.
(06/26 03:48:45) Gondar: Thend, you might disagree with his idea, but you don;'t go insulting him like that.
(06/26 03:48:52) Nick White: The things tried to kill him.
(06/26 03:48:58) Gondar: (Not personal you)
(06/26 03:48:58) jetuser: Yeah can you explain what specifically happened to wheely
(06/26 03:49:03) Firesign: i think he is too, nick. i always have.
(06/26 03:49:03) Nick White: They should have killed him. And then he saw what they did to Bahro.
(06/26 03:49:03) Sarah: I think he maybe got a bit of "most dangerous game" rush, and it got out of hand.
(06/26 03:49:04) jetuser: all we know is that it was rather gruesome
(06/26 03:49:05) Tayrtahn: he did seem rather shaken
(06/26 03:49:05) Thend: We'll discuss this later Gondar
(06/26 03:49:07) Nick White: sorry did to Wheely.
(06/26 03:49:08) Firesign: he means well.
(06/26 03:49:08) Deius: He may be a good man, but he is making a huge mistake if he carries out his plan
(06/26 03:49:28) Nick White: We'll see what he does.
(06/26 03:49:31) Firesign: he just gets..excitable
(06/26 03:49:31) Yellowdog: So what kind of news you got anyway nick?
(06/26 03:49:33) Nick White: He's a hunter at heart.
(06/26 03:49:37) Breanna Walker: Is he going alone?
(06/26 03:49:46) Nick White: And these things tried to kill him and did kill people he knew.
(06/26 03:49:46) ireenquench: But, he seemed to be quite trigger happy... he said he'll take one down no matter what kind, no matter what he finds out about them.
(06/26 03:49:50) Simon_Bitdiddle: Is he going to be on... administrative leave... until he is treated for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorders?
(06/26 03:50:04) Nick White: He then had a chance to go after them. YOu see why he got "excited"
(06/26 03:50:12) Tai'lahr: Good idea, Simon.
(06/26 03:50:21) Thend nods his head
(06/26 03:50:22) MikeFitz: At best he gets revenge ? At worst he could provoke them into more attacks on us!
(06/26 03:50:24) Nick White: No. He's still going.
(06/26 03:50:31) Breanna Walker: alone?
(06/26 03:50:34) Jazz: Does he still intend to kill a Bahro?
(06/26 03:50:34) Nick White: Alone.
(06/26 03:50:41) Kam Uraki: Unarmed I hope
(06/26 03:50:42) Firesign: many people, including me, thought cate sanctioned the killing.
(06/26 03:50:42) Breanna Walker: not good
(06/26 03:50:46) Tai'lahr: Alone?
(06/26 03:50:49) Deius: You are explaining his motives well, Nick, but it still doesn't make what he wants to do right.
(06/26 03:50:54) Breanna Walker: he needs someone with him
(06/26 03:50:55) Simon_Bitdiddle: Are you people out of your minds?
(06/26 03:51:07) Nick White: I'm not sure it's wrong. But yes it doesn't make it right.
(06/26 03:51:08) Alant Sunir: Pardon me for saying so, but that sounds crazy. Alone?
(06/26 03:51:13) Nick White: If it is wrong.
(06/26 03:51:17) ireenquench: Nick... you could go with him... Maybe you could be of a positive influence.
(06/26 03:51:25) Nick White: Maybe I could get killed.
(06/26 03:51:27) Breanna Walker: yes
(06/26 03:51:29) Nick White: That'd be fun.
(06/26 03:51:31) Breanna Walker: he should not go alone
(06/26 03:51:32) Jazz is sad
(06/26 03:51:35) Simon_Bitdiddle: That man needs a Chaperone. Preferably someone in a maintainer suit.
(06/26 03:51:39) Firesign: that would ruin your day
(06/26 03:51:41) ireenquench cringes
(06/26 03:51:43) Nick White: He has a plan.
(06/26 03:51:43) Gondar: It's the alone I'm worried about. I don't think any of us can help though..
(06/26 03:51:46) Thend: Sharper said he had made preparations or something, he seemed rather positive, even against the obvious odds
(06/26 03:51:52) Dakro: Nick will you be trying to convince him otherwise?
(06/26 03:51:55) Nick White: He's been doing a lot of "planning"
(06/26 03:51:56) Kam Uraki: Death tends to make for a bad day.
(06/26 03:51:57) Jazz: What sort of plan?
(06/26 03:51:58) Tayrtahn: I'm curious what kind of plan he could possibly have?
(06/26 03:52:04) Tai'lahr: Is he looking for Bahro, surviving D'ni or both?
(06/26 03:52:04) Gondar: Yeah.. I talked to him, he said he knew some stuff about them.
(06/26 03:52:07) Thend: Nick, what sort, please enlighten
(06/26 03:52:10) Simon_Bitdiddle: He's making preparations to die. He needs to be stopped.
(06/26 03:52:10) Alant Sunir: He shouldn't go at all, plan or no. One man going into who knows how many enemy is suicide.
(06/26 03:52:11) Nick White: Says it's not about big guns this time.
(06/26 03:52:16) ireenquench: What kind of planning does he do exactly?
(06/26 03:52:17) Thend nods his head
(06/26 03:52:17) MikeFitz: snakes!
(06/26 03:52:32) Kam Uraki: Oh hey, good point
(06/26 03:52:36) Nick White: He's done his research.
(06/26 03:52:36) Simon_Bitdiddle: Nick, you need to tell Cate to scrub this mission and get Sharper to proper psychological help.
(06/26 03:52:49) Nick White: Not my job.
(06/26 03:52:55) Jazz: Is he going to share that research with us?
(06/26 03:52:58) ireenquench: On what... weaponry? Or Bahro?
(06/26 03:53:01) Nick White: Probably not now.
(06/26 03:53:05) Breanna Walker: your job or not he is your friend, yes
(06/26 03:53:05) Nick White: Both.
(06/26 03:53:06) Thend: Nick, kinda disturbed that he won't share what he seems to have studied and learned
(06/26 03:53:06) beachrm: choices have consequences bigger than the chooser
(06/26 03:53:08) Alant Sunir: Besides, what counselor would believe a word of this?
(06/26 03:53:12) Tai'lahr: What if he finds D'ni there?
(06/26 03:53:12) Tayrtahn: So, not big guns. Any idea what he'll be doing instead?
(06/26 03:53:17) Simon_Bitdiddle: You're practically the only one who could pass that onto them. Kodama's practically acerbic to the Explorers.
(06/26 03:53:33) Yellowdog: Naw Sharper is gonna do what sharper is gonna do, I just hope the spyroom book is with someone that can give it to US!
(06/26 03:53:41) Dakro: Has he discussed his plan with you? and if so can you explain to us what he told you?
(06/26 03:53:42) Nick White: Guns and roses.
(06/26 03:53:47) Jazz: lol
(06/26 03:53:51) MikeFitz: lol
(06/26 03:53:59) Tayrtahn: music soothes the savage bahro?
(06/26 03:54:07) Kam Uraki: Welcome to the Jungle
(06/26 03:54:10) Nick White: Paradise City works every time.
(06/26 03:54:10) Gondar: Or at least scares them off?
(06/26 03:54:23) Nick White: Or maybe he'll whisper Patience.
(06/26 03:54:24) Simon_Bitdiddle: He also said that the Bahro were leaving the Pod ages alone.
(06/26 03:54:27) Gondar laughs
(06/26 03:54:31) Nick White: Yeah they haven't been around.
(06/26 03:54:35) Simon_Bitdiddle: Are the animals returning?
(06/26 03:54:37) Nick White: Vanished.
(06/26 03:54:44) Thend: Nick, now you are being absolutely evasive lol
(06/26 03:54:45) Nick White: I think most of the animals are dead.
(06/26 03:54:55) Firesign: slash could scare anything away
(06/26 03:54:56) Jazz: Awwww
(06/26 03:54:56) Nick White: Bahro killed them all.
(06/26 03:54:56) Kam Uraki: They kinda need to breed before that happens
(06/26 03:55:02) ireenquench: I havent seen one in a long time.
(06/26 03:55:05) Alant Sunir: I don't even want to think about how many bahro that took.
(06/26 03:55:08) Nick White: But I'm sure the Bahro aren't mean.
(06/26 03:55:08) Gondar: Hey Nick... have you been out around the other pods? There were the symbols found near the negilahn pod you said, but what about say payiferen?
(06/26 03:55:14) jetuser: Hey nick, I was wondering what happened specifically with Wheely, alot of the drc have been really mum about it
(06/26 03:55:18) Nick White: Haven't seen any.
(06/26 03:55:25) Gondar: hm
(06/26 03:55:34) Nick White: They've been mum because it's not pretty.
(06/26 03:55:38) Jazz: You're sure the Bahro aren't mean? So why is Sharper going to kill one?
(06/26 03:55:45) Thend: Nick, what's your take on the Bahro? What is happening? And why now?
(06/26 03:55:58) jetuser: Right and I feel that it might help use feel what they are going through right now if we knew -something- about what happened.
(06/26 03:55:59) Nick White: I was being sarcastic. They've wiped out practically the whole animal population.
(06/26 03:56:06) Simon_Bitdiddle: Does this have anything to do with the reactivation of the GZ and the plans to brighten the Lake?
(06/26 03:56:07) Jazz: Exactly
(06/26 03:56:13) jetuser: I mean even if you said its what happened to the creature on neglihan then that would paint a pretty accurate picture
(06/26 03:56:16) Yellowdog: The Bahro, at least some, ARE mean and willing to KILL! I say GO SHARPER!
(06/26 03:56:22) Deius: SOME bahro, not the entire race. Lets be straight here
(06/26 03:56:36) Nick White: Exactly jetuser - you can all imagine what they saw.
(06/26 03:56:48) Jazz: They Bahro will just retaliate
(06/26 03:56:49) Nick White: And it was probably a little worse than you can imagine.
(06/26 03:56:50) The Zoologist: Are there any theories as to why the Bahro are becoming violent?
(06/26 03:56:53) Thend: what's going on though?
(06/26 03:56:54) FEENXFIRE: Do we know anything about Bahro mating habits? Maybe they go crazy during breeding season, or something.
(06/26 03:56:55) jetuser: Ah so its safe to say its something like that?
(06/26 03:56:56) Thend nods his head
(06/26 03:57:05) Nick White: Yes.
(06/26 03:57:08) Nick White: Safe to say.
(06/26 03:57:11) jetuser: Ooh okay
(06/26 03:57:16) MikeFitz: Yeah lets go attacking a race who can link in an kill us at anytime!
(06/26 03:57:24) ireenquench: Can we stop generalizing here, please?
(06/26 03:57:26) Di Gama: hi nick
(06/26 03:57:28) Kam Uraki: High bahro taxes? That may be why they are acting up.
(06/26 03:57:36) Gondar: What about the other areas? There was originally talk all the pod age had predator problems.. so they were around the payiferen pod? And.. they didn't go near but no symbols anywhere near?
(06/26 03:57:41) The Zoologist: So, according to you and the DRC, the pod ages are practically dead?
(06/26 03:57:51) Nick White: There are two lines of thought - sit around until they come and eat us. Go get 'em.
(06/26 03:57:52) Sarah: I don't agree with the killing idea, but let's be clear, it's not a foregone conclusion that we lose.
(06/26 03:58:09) Nick White: Kinda like Republicans and Democrats.
(06/26 03:58:14) Nick White: Bad joke.
(06/26 03:58:16) Gondar: heh.
(06/26 03:58:16) Kam Uraki: LOL
(06/26 03:58:17) Sarah: The D'ni had no powers that humans haven't proven they can use, and they had no trouble with the Bahro.
(06/26 03:58:18) ireenquench: Only two options? Thats simple *snicker*
(06/26 03:58:18) Breanna Walker: yes
(06/26 03:58:21) MikeFitz: I'm an independent ;-)
(06/26 03:58:21) Tai'lahr: Maybe they're in fear of us and the restoration, and that's why they've become more aggitated.
(06/26 03:58:22) Breanna Walker: bad joke
(06/26 03:58:27) Firesign: if you see them holding ketchup, run
(06/26 03:58:28) Alant Sunir: So we either sit here or go kill them? There has to be some other way.
(06/26 03:58:28) Kam Uraki: No it was a great joke
(06/26 03:58:41) The Zoologist laughs
(06/26 03:58:43) Breanna Walker: lol
(06/26 03:58:54) Tai'lahr: Maybe our presence here has them upset.
(06/26 03:59:00) Nick White: The D'ni weren't dealing with the same Bahro we are.
(06/26 03:59:11) Tai'lahr: Why do you say that?
(06/26 03:59:17) Jazz: Ooooh
(06/26 03:59:20) jetuser: It probably relates to the tablet
(06/26 03:59:21) Firesign: oh??
(06/26 03:59:24) Gondar: what do you mean Nick? Different group of bahro, different reaction, or different species entirely?
(06/26 03:59:25) Serephina: How are they different?
(06/26 03:59:27) Survivor Man: Explain please
(06/26 03:59:28) Tai'lahr: Because they were slaves then?
(06/26 03:59:29) MikeFitz: Maybe they were and that's why the D'ni enslaved them in the first place
(06/26 03:59:30) Kam Uraki: Well... while I'm not a fan of needless killing, we could level the playing field with a bahro coat like Esher had
(06/26 03:59:31) Breanna Walker: explain?
(06/26 03:59:41) Nick White: You guys are the ones that always bring up Myst V - the game. I think that's pretty accurate.
(06/26 03:59:47) The Zoologist: Perhaps they are angry that we are rebuilding the civilization that enslaved them...
(06/26 03:59:55) Yellowdog: Remember the Bahro WERE peacfull untill WE started freeing a "Cirtian" group of them.....
(06/26 03:59:58) Firesign: oh really
(06/26 04:00:10) Alant Sunir: They may not even have been Bahro in terms of species. I've seen refrences that used the term to simply mean 'slaves'.
(06/26 04:00:12) Gondar: Think? I thought the DRC had little to no contact with the survivor as well as knew almost nothing about the bahro..
(06/26 04:00:14) Di Gama: bye
(06/26 04:00:16) Gondar: Where did the info come from?
(06/26 04:00:20) Nick White: Cyan is usually pretty accurate with their depictions.
(06/26 04:00:21) Firesign: so the whole thing with the tablet is pretty close?
(06/26 04:00:25) jetuser: So are you saying someone is controlling them, or rather they have their own free will now.
(06/26 04:00:30) Thend: Nick, then the Bahro haave the tablet - or someone else?
(06/26 04:00:34) jetuser: And are getting a form of revenge?
(06/26 04:00:36) ireenquench: Ok... so you think the vicious nes are completely unknown ones?
(06/26 04:00:46) FEENXFIRE: So... you mean since the Bahro a free now, they're dangerous?
(06/26 04:00:47) Sarah: I am confused, it seems that the Myst V Bahro are exactly the ones the D'ni were dealing with.
(06/26 04:00:56) FEENXFIRE: *are
(06/26 04:01:04) Gondar: So.. you're saying the DRC has known all along what we were up against, and about the tablet and so on?
(06/26 04:01:10) ireenquench: I'm with Sarah there.
(06/26 04:01:12) Tayrtahn: give him a chance to answer something
(06/26 04:01:18) jetuser: Sarah he's talking social wise, they arent exactly the same things the D'ni had to deal with behavior wise
(06/26 04:01:20) Thend nods his head
(06/26 04:01:30) Nick White: the DRC has been suspicious of the Bahro.
(06/26 04:01:34) jetuser: The D'ni controlled them via the tablet so they wouldnt go killing people willy nilly
(06/26 04:01:38) Yellowdog: Thend, can you modirate this?
(06/26 04:01:47) Nick White: I don't think they had any idea they were capapble of such violence until recently.
(06/26 04:01:53) Thend: If necesaary
(06/26 04:01:58) Sarah: Again, I disagree, though I will give in to Nick's historical knowledge. I think the D'ni had to deal with exactly the free bahro in the first place.
(06/26 04:02:04) Alant Sunir: Like a kid with a loaded gun, huh?
(06/26 04:02:05) jetuser: But Nick do we know specifically whether its a manner of free will or if someone is controlling them?
(06/26 04:02:09) Nick White: Well you can think that....
(06/26 04:02:10) Gondar: Yes, but there's a big gap between suspicious, and knowing enough to give everything for Cyan. Cyan had a lot of info.. does that mean you translated Yeesha's journals?
(06/26 04:02:25) Nick White: We can all have our theories...
(06/26 04:02:30) Nick White: Even Sharper.
(06/26 04:02:36) Kam Uraki: Makes me want to replay Myst V so I can memorize those symbols again
(06/26 04:02:37) jetuser: Actually Sarah if you play myst 5 you see thats not quite true, they actually abused them and used the bahro as slaves rather than free people
(06/26 04:02:43) The Zoologist: So, Mr. White... what is the DRC's take on these creatures in a general perspective?
(06/26 04:02:49) Sarah: I'll listen to yours, you've read histories we've never seen, Nick.
(06/26 04:02:52) Nick White: I don't speak for the DRC.
(06/26 04:02:53) Snazzy: Is there any way to defend ones self from a Bahro attack?
(06/26 04:03:03) jetuser: yeah run
(06/26 04:03:05) jetuser: really fast
(06/26 04:03:06) Nick White: Jab it in the eyes.
(06/26 04:03:12) Tai'lahr: So what is your relationship with the DRC now?
(06/26 04:03:20) Gondar: The eyes do glow in thedark..
(06/26 04:03:32) Breanna Walker: Jab it in the eyes?
(06/26 04:03:33) The Zoologist: Feed it Keanulint. It'll go into convulsions.
(06/26 04:03:38) Kam Uraki: I quote the Matrix. "You see one, you do what we do... Run... You run your ***** off"
(06/26 04:03:41) Nick White: Get a snake.
(06/26 04:03:45) Sarah: They haven't learned the vertical hand block, the two-finger eye poke will be lethal!
(06/26 04:03:52) Yellowdog: Thro a "wheel" at it.....lol
(06/26 04:03:58) Breanna Walker: eww i hate snakes
(06/26 04:03:59) Deius: lol @ Sarah
(06/26 04:04:08) Firesign: so do the bahro
(06/26 04:04:09) Ad'ytum: lol
(06/26 04:04:12) Tayrtahn: Ah, the Three Stooges defense...
(06/26 04:04:16) Snazzy: the good ol Curley attack
(06/26 04:04:23) Tai'lahr: No, snakes are good.
(06/26 04:04:29) Sarah: Sorry to interrupt, Nick, please continute
(06/26 04:04:44) Nick White: Nobody interuppted.
(06/26 04:04:46) Thend: Nick, so whoever has the tablet is in the realm of 'theories' now, at the moment?
(06/26 04:04:56) Thend: Or do you know?
(06/26 04:04:58) Kam Uraki: Y'know who we need. Alice Cooper! He has that big Python and can still make gigs even after his head gets chopped off every night!
(06/26 04:05:03) jetuser: Well im not sure exactly if its free will or tablet controlled yet thend
(06/26 04:05:13) MikeFitz: Has anyone tried to contact Yeesha and get her take on this?
(06/26 04:05:15) Nick White: Agree jetuser.
(06/26 04:05:15) ireenquench: Nick, can you explain again this stuff about free Bahro, Myst V Bahro, D'ni Bahro?
(06/26 04:05:19) Robotany: I'd like to hear Sharper's "theory"
(06/26 04:05:21) jetuser: Maybe sharper will be able to figure that out when he goes to Nobelen
(06/26 04:05:22) Thend thanks you very much!
(06/26 04:05:26) Tai'lahr: Nick, what is your relationship with the DRC like, now?
(06/26 04:05:39) Nick White: Sharper's theory is that the bad ones will kill us the first chance they have.
(06/26 04:05:51) Gondar nods his head
(06/26 04:05:58) Nick White: No matter what we do.
(06/26 04:05:58) Yellowdog: I tend to agree with that
(06/26 04:05:58) Firesign nods his head
(06/26 04:05:58) Deius: If that were true, Nick, we'd be dead now
(06/26 04:06:05) Snazzy: great
(06/26 04:06:08) Survivor Man: How can you tell a bad Bahro from a good Bahro?
(06/26 04:06:15) Firesign: ask it
(06/26 04:06:15) Nick White: Maybe they haven't had a chance Deius. There are good ones too.
(06/26 04:06:18) Firesign: :)
(06/26 04:06:19) Gondar: There's other bahro, remember..
(06/26 04:06:20) Yellowdog: by its nise...lol
(06/26 04:06:23) jetuser: If it runs after you then you can safely assume its bad
(06/26 04:06:27) Yellowdog: nose
(06/26 04:06:29) Gondar: Yeah.. what Nick said. Power balance, I guess.
(06/26 04:06:31) Kam Uraki: Good from bad
(06/26 04:06:31) Nick White: Interest rates..
(06/26 04:06:35) Tai'lahr: Maybe the good ones have been protecting us.
(06/26 04:06:38) Kam Uraki: OH! I know!
(06/26 04:06:43) Deius: Good point
(06/26 04:06:46) Ad'ytum: lol yellowdog
(06/26 04:06:52) Tai'lahr: You can't just kill one without knowing it's intentions.
(06/26 04:06:53) Drewski: guardian angle bahro?
(06/26 04:06:56) Sarah: And of course, we know nothing of their biology. Maybe all the ones we've seen are "drones" or something.
(06/26 04:06:58) Kam Uraki: In Star Trek, the bad versions of the Enterprise crew had beards
(06/26 04:07:02) Deius: So how can we contact the good ones to help them help us?
(06/26 04:07:06) Sarah: lol @ Kam
(06/26 04:07:10) Tai'lahr: Oh Kam!
(06/26 04:07:11) Firesign: true kam
(06/26 04:07:14) MikeFitz: Nick, do you know if anyone has tried to contact Yeesha to get her take on this fight?
(06/26 04:07:14) Gondar: Make a peace offering. good ones will take the offering. Bad ones will take you.
(06/26 04:07:14) Ad'ytum: lol
(06/26 04:07:18) jetuser: I'm pretty sure they'll know if we need help
(06/26 04:07:22) Thend: Nick, thanks for being so helpful about this, btw
(06/26 04:07:23) Snazzy: the bizarro Bahro
(06/26 04:07:24) Nick White: I don't know.
(06/26 04:07:28) Ad'ytum: BAhro are hairy all over!
(06/26 04:07:39) FEENXFIRE: Maybe the "bad" Bahro have a point, though.
(06/26 04:07:41) Tai'lahr: If this were Star Trek, I'd be dead by now cause I wear a red shirt. lol
(06/26 04:07:47) Thend: We are just as concerned as Sharper and all of you are
(06/26 04:07:48) Firesign: yeah, we reallty appreciate the info and stuff
(06/26 04:07:49) Yellowdog: hehe
(06/26 04:07:50) Survivor Man: Should we be traveling with companions instead of alone?
(06/26 04:07:52) Nick White: Nobody got my joke and it was a good one.
(06/26 04:08:01) Nine-O-Nine: any idea on how many good vs bad there are? like 50/50.... or less than half are of the bad kind?
(06/26 04:08:03) Firesign: i missed it :/
(06/26 04:08:09) Thend: (Everyone laugh as if you got the joke)
(06/26 04:08:10) Gondar: If it were star trek we could stop them by recalibrating the quantum flux inhibitor on the plasma intake or something.
(06/26 04:08:10) Breanna Walker: sorry, jokes go over my head a lot
(06/26 04:08:12) Thend laughs
(06/26 04:08:15) Tai'lahr laughs
(06/26 04:08:15) Tayrtahn: Any sort of time frame on Sharper's... quest? When he might leave, when he maybe, hopefully might come back?
(06/26 04:08:18) Kam Uraki: Sorry, I distracted them with my Star Trek joke, Nick
(06/26 04:08:36) Gondar: I'll laugh when I read it in the log :-D
(06/26 04:08:36) beachrm: high interest
(06/26 04:08:38) Nick White: How do you tell the difference between a good Bahro and a bad Bahro? Interest rates.
(06/26 04:08:38) FEENXFIRE: The D'ni enslaved the Bahro for years! Maybe they have a right to be afraid of us.
(06/26 04:08:44) Nine-O-Nine: lol
(06/26 04:08:47) Firesign laughs
(06/26 04:08:50) Deledrius: Gondar, it's more likely to be an inverse tachyon beam from the deflector dish
(06/26 04:08:50) Gondar laughs
(06/26 04:08:51) Tai'lahr: Oh, groan.
(06/26 04:08:51) Thend laughs
(06/26 04:08:52) Survivor Man: hahaha
(06/26 04:08:54) Straasha groans
(06/26 04:08:55) Yellowdog: I seen it, just not real funny...lol
(06/26 04:08:56) Do'Tsahvahn starts to laugh
(06/26 04:08:57) Jazz groans
(06/26 04:08:59) Kam Uraki: Ba dum dum
(06/26 04:09:00) Vander laughs
(06/26 04:09:02) Gondar: Ok, that was a good one..
(06/26 04:09:02) Sarah: Yuk hyuk hyuk
(06/26 04:09:02) Firesign: ok, that WAS good :)
(06/26 04:09:03) ireenquench doesnt get it. But then again she has no humor.
(06/26 04:09:05) Sarah starts to laugh
(06/26 04:09:05) Nick White: Okay sorry.
(06/26 04:09:07) Ad'ytum: the interest rate oh yes Good one
(06/26 04:09:09) MikeFitz politely chuckles
(06/26 04:09:10) Deius rolls his eyes
(06/26 04:09:12) Snazzy: rimshot>
(06/26 04:09:13) Ad'ytum laughs
(06/26 04:09:13) Nick White: What was the question?
(06/26 04:09:14) AKA: lol
(06/26 04:09:15) Moondweller: What's in your wallet?
(06/26 04:09:17) Thend starts to laugh
(06/26 04:09:18) Breanna Walker: Nick, will you be in contact with Doug while he is gone?
(06/26 04:09:19) Tai'lahr: Borrow, ireen.
(06/26 04:09:20) Tayrtahn: Timeframe
(06/26 04:09:22) Kam Uraki: lol Snazzy
(06/26 04:09:27) Sarah: You could just read the bahrometer
(06/26 04:09:30) jetuser: lol
(06/26 04:09:34) Nick White: Nice one.
(06/26 04:09:34) MikeFitz says DOH!
(06/26 04:09:35) Firesign: ow sarah
(06/26 04:09:41) Thend: ohmy lol
(06/26 04:09:45) Nick White: I will probably hear from Sharper from time to time.
(06/26 04:09:48) Nick White: Hopefully.
(06/26 04:09:53) jetuser: Bahro, 15 minutes can save you 15% or more or link times.
(06/26 04:09:57) Jubie72256: Now that was a good joke
(06/26 04:09:58) Firesign: let us know if you do?
(06/26 04:10:12) Tayrtahn: Any ideas as to when he might leave? And when he might, hopefully, come back?
(06/26 04:10:13) Breanna Walker: Will attempt to keep us informed?
(06/26 04:10:15) Tai'lahr: So, is Shaper your only official connection to the DRC, now?
(06/26 04:10:19) Gondar: Hm. Ask him to mute his KI and stay in contact when he can. That way he won't have to shut it off.
(06/26 04:10:20) Kam Uraki throws a cone at Jetuser
(06/26 04:10:22) Nick White: No, no...
(06/26 04:10:26) Vander: so easy even a bahro can do it
(06/26 04:10:29) jetuser: what cone Kam
(06/26 04:10:32) Nick White: I have my men on the inside.
(06/26 04:10:39) ireenquench: So he angry at explores? Or at Cate?
(06/26 04:10:42) Tai'lahr: Oh, really? Who?
(06/26 04:10:49) Breanna Walker: men?
(06/26 04:10:50) Nick White: Resengs.
(06/26 04:10:50) jetuser: There's no more cones here, they revolted on us and left :P
(06/26 04:10:50) Kam Uraki: I carry a concealed cone on me
(06/26 04:10:53) Tai'lahr: ResEngs?
(06/26 04:11:00) Simon_Bitdiddle: If it's ResEng233, I wouldn't count on him too well.
(06/26 04:11:01) jetuser: Do you have a licecne for a concealed cone?
(06/26 04:11:01) Firesign: never rat your sources :)
(06/26 04:11:10) Nick White: I haven't.
(06/26 04:11:12) Tai'lahr: Hmmm
(06/26 04:11:15) Nick White: I could be lying.
(06/26 04:11:17) AKA: well if you see him before his trip, please let him know we want him to be careful and that we are sorry if we offended him when he came to talk with us earlier today.
(06/26 04:11:19) Haruko: Don't weasel them out either.
(06/26 04:11:19) Deledrius: We demand the KI numbers of your sources! ;)
(06/26 04:11:29) ireenquench: You also mentioned you had some other news..
(06/26 04:11:30) Firesign: or ARE you? :)
(06/26 04:11:31) Tai'lahr: lol Haruko
(06/26 04:11:32) Vander: is that a cone in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?
(06/26 04:11:36) Nick White: I'm sure he'll show up before he heads out.
(06/26 04:11:41) Thend: Of course Nick, we don't trust anyone lol
(06/26 04:11:48) Breanna Walker: I hope so
(06/26 04:11:48) Kam Uraki: Yes. Now on a more serious topic, what age type, if any, do the bahro tend to inhabit more often
(06/26 04:11:55) Nick White: He's not one to sit in the corner because everyone yelled at him.
(06/26 04:11:57) Firesign: be surprised if he comes to uo again
(06/26 04:12:04) Tayrtahn: When is he heading out?
(06/26 04:12:10) Alant Sunir: We all just don't want to lose anyone else, and that includes Sharper, Nick. Too many have gone already.
(06/26 04:12:16) Nick White: Tomorrow or Wednesday.
(06/26 04:12:22) Gondar: Is he the type to act rashly because people yelled at him though?
(06/26 04:12:22) Nick White: Agreed.
(06/26 04:12:23) FEENXFIRE: Before Er'cana?
(06/26 04:12:36) Deledrius: Yeah, we need someone like Sharper around, so he had better not get himself killed.
(06/26 04:12:38) Nick White: Not sure.
(06/26 04:12:43) Dalken Starbyne: Nick...I was wondering...is Doug at all worried that this might make other Bahro mad and try to...y'know...attack other people?
(06/26 04:12:48) Nick White: On Er'Cana that is.
(06/26 04:13:00) Nick White: Yes he is worried about that.
(06/26 04:13:10) Firesign: he made it clear he wasnt worried
(06/26 04:13:13) Kam Uraki: Dalken is... speaking... like... Captain Kirk!
(06/26 04:13:16) Nick White: But, as I said, his theory is that nothing is going to stop them from attacking when they can.
(06/26 04:13:21) Firesign: i dodnt get that impression, nick
(06/26 04:13:28) Firesign: er didnt
(06/26 04:13:30) Nick White: He'd like to learn all he can before that happens.
(06/26 04:13:35) Simon_Bitdiddle: That's a pretty hefty accusation.
(06/26 04:13:38) Tai'lahr: Isn't there a possibility that there are surviving D'ni on Noloben?
(06/26 04:13:38) Nick White: Including, if necessary, how to kill them.
(06/26 04:13:48) MikeFitz mumbles something about preemptive strikes and shakes his head
(06/26 04:13:49) Thend: Nick, do you know what he's learned, prepared?
(06/26 04:13:51) Deledrius: Does he have any basis for that theory, or is it conjecture?
(06/26 04:13:51) ireenquench: Nick...what are the other theories floating around at the DRC
(06/26 04:13:52) Moondweller: At least he's doing reconnaissance first
(06/26 04:13:55) Robotany: What is it that's stopping them?
(06/26 04:14:01) Alant Sunir: There's just no way we can know why they haven't attacked more before now, especially without access to more info, more Ages.
(06/26 04:14:08) FEENXFIRE: Tell him to use his journal more! It's a good way to relax.
(06/26 04:14:19) Simon_Bitdiddle: LOL.
(06/26 04:14:20) jetuser: Hey Nick, what about yeesha in all of this? I mean she's usually your go to person for issues with bahro or anything remotely to this in the past.
(06/26 04:14:25) Nick White: His basis is probably that they tried to kill him, killed entire populations of animals - for no apparent reason - and killed two people here.
(06/26 04:14:32) jetuser: Has she just dissapeared or?
(06/26 04:14:41) Nick White: Uh, I don't have her cell number.
(06/26 04:14:47) Nine-O-Nine: lol
(06/26 04:14:50) ireenquench laughs
(06/26 04:14:50) Tai'lahr: But, there may be reasons we're not aware of yet.
(06/26 04:14:52) Gondar: Any contact with her at all? Even seeing her in the halls?
(06/26 04:14:53) jetuser: Well i mean about the DRC in general, have they tried to contact her?
(06/26 04:14:53) AKA: lol
(06/26 04:14:54) Firesign: lol!!
(06/26 04:14:59) Simon_Bitdiddle: Nick: Did Yeesha turn you down too?
(06/26 04:15:02) Deledrius: that's reasonable I suppose
(06/26 04:15:07) Nick White: I don't think you just call up Yeesha.
(06/26 04:15:18) MikeFitz: someone get her a ki
(06/26 04:15:18) Drewski: kind of worked that one time...
(06/26 04:15:21) Kolian: You gotta jingle some keys
(06/26 04:15:21) Gondar: Yeah, we've all tried :-D
(06/26 04:15:22) Nick White: She's not my type.
(06/26 04:15:25) Deledrius: but that doesn't address the assumption regarding their motives
(06/26 04:15:25) Kolian: Make yourself sound busy
(06/26 04:15:28) jetuser: True, but wouldnt you think that she would know about something like this, considering how close she is to the bahro
(06/26 04:15:29) Sarah: Why is Zandi staying out of all this?
(06/26 04:15:31) Tai'lahr: Would you like for us to form a spiral?
(06/26 04:15:35) Vander: shes on my five
(06/26 04:15:36) Nick White: I would think she does.
(06/26 04:15:40) Carval: I know that this has been asked before, but how much does the DRC really know about the Bahro, from D'Ni notes or otherwise?
(06/26 04:15:55) jetuser: So why the secrecy then, its not usually like her to do nothing about this.
(06/26 04:15:58) Nick White: Bits here and there. They are looking at those bits more seriously lately.
(06/26 04:16:11) jetuser: I'm pretty sure she wouldnt stand idly by while people get killed by the things that taught her
(06/26 04:16:14) Deledrius: Has the DRC had any contact with Yeesha at all, especially regarding this matter?
(06/26 04:16:18) Nick White: I don't have any answers about Yesha, for the record.
(06/26 04:16:24) Nick White: I don't work for her.
(06/26 04:16:25) Gondar: So how do you know how accurate Cyan is?
(06/26 04:16:29) jetuser: Okay, well it was worth a shot anyway
(06/26 04:16:37) Tai'lahr: Who do you work for, Nick?
(06/26 04:16:39) Nick White: And no one I know has the ability to call her up with questions.
(06/26 04:16:46) Yellowdog: Mabee Cate IS Yeesha...lol
(06/26 04:16:46) Deledrius: thanks :)
(06/26 04:16:46) Nick White: Myself.
(06/26 04:16:54) Simon_Bitdiddle: We've got enough people to set up a spiral...
(06/26 04:16:56) Nick White: Best boss around.
(06/26 04:16:57) Vander: does it pay well?
(06/26 04:16:57) ireenquench: Nick, you know we'd love to learn about those bits the DRC knows about Bahro. Anything you can pass on?
(06/26 04:16:58) jetuser: Hm i recall the DRC saying in the past before she had a KI, is that right or is it the other way around?
(06/26 04:17:01) Tai'lahr: Not much money in that, is there?
(06/26 04:17:03) Sarah: Does that come with dental, Nick?
(06/26 04:17:08) Sarah: ;)
(06/26 04:17:08) Gondar: Nah, Cate is Yeesha's younger sister. The one that came after the stuff we know about.
(06/26 04:17:09) Nick White: No.
(06/26 04:17:14) Firesign: easy to get a day off at least
(06/26 04:17:23) Nick White: Looking for jobs on the surface.
(06/26 04:17:31) Tai'lahr: Oh, I thought Cate was Yeesha's daugher. lol
(06/26 04:17:38) Gondar: Has the DRC had any interest in hiring you back?
(06/26 04:17:47) Nick White: Not sure.
(06/26 04:17:51) Moondweller: Then who's her dad?
(06/26 04:17:52) Breanna Walker: they should
(06/26 04:17:57) Simon_Bitdiddle: Is Sharper thinking about subcontracting to you?
(06/26 04:17:58) Kolian: Ubisoft would probably pay you a bundle..
(06/26 04:17:58) Firesign: would you accept a drc job again?
(06/26 04:18:00) Nick White: Who's your daddy?
(06/26 04:18:02) DrFrob: Didn't the Watcher say Yeesha's daughter would live in peace?
(06/26 04:18:06) Deledrius: Do you still plan on coming down to the cavern regularly once you do get a new surface job?
(06/26 04:18:07) Gondar laughs
(06/26 04:18:08) Tai'lahr: Maybe you should work for the explorers.
(06/26 04:18:10) AKA: lol
(06/26 04:18:11) Drewski: well, if they keep losing members... they might need him back
(06/26 04:18:14) Dakro: Do the ladies still like Nick?
(06/26 04:18:26) Sarah: Nick, do they have your expertise duplicated at all?
(06/26 04:18:27) Simon_Bitdiddle waits for the chorus of 'YES!'
(06/26 04:18:36) Arwen Gemstone: Do you know what happened to Michael Engberg?
(06/26 04:18:40) Nick White: Duplicated?
(06/26 04:18:43) jetuser: No one does arwen
(06/26 04:18:45) Gondar: Yeah, lety's all get together money, and hire Nick.. his network of contacts, and knowledge of D'ni..
(06/26 04:18:47) Nick White: They have cloned me.
(06/26 04:18:49) Deius: So let me get this straight...some of theNick, are the DRC keeping any info about the bahro that we should know about to help protect ourselves?
(06/26 04:18:52) Tayrtahn: hah
(06/26 04:18:56) Sarah: Like, are there people there who can cover everything you were doing for them?
(06/26 04:19:24) Nick White: They'll find ways. Everyone can be replaced.
(06/26 04:19:32) Nick White: At least in a job.
(06/26 04:19:32) Deledrius: even me
(06/26 04:19:36) Tai'lahr: Oh, not everyone.
(06/26 04:19:39) Osiyo: He hopes so
(06/26 04:19:43) Nick White: Although they'll never be as good as me of course.
(06/26 04:19:47) Deledrius: hehe
(06/26 04:19:48) Jazz: lol
(06/26 04:19:49) Gondar: Of course not.
(06/26 04:19:49) Firesign: of course
(06/26 04:19:49) Tayrtahn: we are running low...
(06/26 04:19:49) Breanna Walker: lol
(06/26 04:19:51) Sarah claps her hands
(06/26 04:19:51) Serephina: lol
(06/26 04:19:53) Carval: I guess another question about bahro information is whether there are any suggestions for places for us to investigate to discover more bahro information?
(06/26 04:19:54) Tai'lahr: Oh, of course.
(06/26 04:19:55) Arwen Gemstone: Nick, any news about Engberg? Or do you have any ideas what happened to him?
(06/26 04:19:57) Deledrius claps his hands
(06/26 04:20:12) Kolian: Well, there's Noloben
(06/26 04:20:14) Kolian: Hence..
(06/26 04:20:16) Jazz: He was spotted in here earlier Arwen
(06/26 04:20:20) FEENXFIRE: So why do you stay down here, Nick? Same reason as us?
(06/26 04:20:27) Nick White: No one has heard a word about Engberg.
(06/26 04:20:27) Drewski: that was a fake
(06/26 04:20:31) Firesign: no jazz, tyhat was an imposter
(06/26 04:20:33) Jazz: It was?
(06/26 04:20:40) Kolian: (Yah, it was)
(06/26 04:20:41) Deledrius: Yeah, is there anything that you know of, that the DRC wouldn't officially condone, that we can do to gather information, or help in some way?
(06/26 04:20:45) Firesign: yes. he's been warned by a reseng
(06/26 04:20:45) Kolian: (A and E were switched)
(06/26 04:20:46) Sarah: There was an imposter earlier, spelled "micheal"
(06/26 04:20:53) Gondar: Oh great.. first a Sharper impersonator, now a Michael one?
(06/26 04:20:59) Nine-O-Nine: that's a bit iffy, right now.... maybe it wasn't him.....
(06/26 04:21:07) Tai'lahr: Kam, can you find him in your Recents list and check the KI number?
(06/26 04:21:34) Moondweller: I thought I saw him earlier, in the pub, but he's not in my Recents
(06/26 04:21:39) AKA: see that imposter sure looke real to me when he ran by and and his name spelled just like Micheals and his avie looked that same.
(06/26 04:21:40) Sarah: ResEng said it was in the 7mills.
(06/26 04:21:41) Gondar: Shouldn't be hard to tell.. Engberg doesn't wear a hairpiece or all bald.. who else has a comb-over?
(06/26 04:21:52) DrFrob: I wouldn't be surprised if Engberg joined Sharper. He certainly has enough reason.
(06/26 04:21:53) Kolian: His name is Michael
(06/26 04:21:56) Causabon: What happend to the rope bridge?
(06/26 04:21:56) Kolian: Not Micheal
(06/26 04:22:11) Jubie72256: ResEng said he had a really high KI number and he was a fake
(06/26 04:22:12) Tweek: doesn't seem in Mikes nature
(06/26 04:22:17) Firesign: uhh, hello. it wasnt engberg.
(06/26 04:22:20) Charles: The rope bridge is buggy lately.
(06/26 04:22:26) Nick White: Yeah I bet Engberg wouldn't mind seeing Sharper kill a Bahro.
(06/26 04:22:28) Causabon: k
(06/26 04:22:31) jetuser: Hmm Nick, is it one of sharper's tasks when he visits Nobelen to figure out the force behind the bad Bahro. i.e. whetehr its the tablet or not?
(06/26 04:22:31) Yellowdog: So thats it Nick? No headlines huh?
(06/26 04:22:40) Nick White: That's it.
(06/26 04:22:43) Simon_Bitdiddle: So, what can you tell us about your translations of Bahro stuff?
(06/26 04:22:58) Deledrius: anything about their internal problems?
(06/26 04:23:02) Nick White: I think you guys know most everything.
(06/26 04:23:03) Anubis RG: Nick, do you miss the old days of Teledahn?
(06/26 04:23:04) Thend: Nick, last time, can you ask Sharper to release the information he's gathered for himself on the Bahro?
(06/26 04:23:12) Thend: Please?
(06/26 04:23:15) Nick White: Yes, I can ask him.
(06/26 04:23:16) Simon_Bitdiddle: Is Kodama really as big of a mean person/people as he comes across in the Cavern?
(06/26 04:23:17) Chloe: nick, Chloe Rhodes, Uru Action News, I just need a quick verification on something.
(06/26 04:23:20) Thend thanks you very much!
(06/26 04:23:21) ResEng B Drechsel: I checked him out... it for sure wasn't Engberg.
(06/26 04:23:27) Gondar: Before he goes preferably?
(06/26 04:23:29) Thend: Appreciate it, thanks :)
(06/26 04:23:31) Error: Don't know how to '/grin'
(06/26 04:23:32) Yellowdog: And ask about the spyroom PLEASE!
(06/26 04:23:35) MikeFitz grins
(06/26 04:23:37) ireenquench: You know Nick, it might be good if you kept in touch with the DRC... people interested in history and language are really interested in getting that stuff you took before you left. And if you leave the cavern for good, what could we do? You are open... the DRC is sometimes all business.
(06/26 04:23:38) Nick White: Yes Chloe - and then I have to go.
(06/26 04:23:51) Nine-O-Nine: Thank you Mr Drechsel
(06/26 04:23:53) Nick White: I'm not leaving the cavern for good.
(06/26 04:23:57) Tweek: History = whooo!
(06/26 04:23:59) Drewski: can we get a copy of sharpers hat to wear to show we support him?
(06/26 04:24:05) Nick White: But yeah, I need to get you guys some more stuff.
(06/26 04:24:05) Darkling: Nick, dont you think sharper doing such a thing would only make the friction between us and the bahro worse? There faster and quiker then any of us and he wants to go attack them?! They could kill us all if they wanted to...
(06/26 04:24:07) Gondar: That's good..
(06/26 04:24:09) Nick White: I said I would.
(06/26 04:24:12) AKA: thank you ResEng Dreschel
(06/26 04:24:15) Firesign: great to see you, nick. thanks for the info.
(06/26 04:24:16) Tayrtahn: or a copy of his mousache?
(06/26 04:24:17) Gondar: We don't want you to leave Nick.
(06/26 04:24:18) Chloe: nIck, there's been debates recently about the slave cages in teledahn, wether or not it was bahro that were kept there by the d'ni. Can you verify if the Bahro were kept there, or another slave race?
(06/26 04:24:34) Nick White: Another as far as I know.
(06/26 04:24:37) Thend: Thanks for everything Nick. You rock
(06/26 04:24:39) Gondar: HA!
(06/26 04:24:39) Firesign: and ask doug if he can leave me his hat in his will :)
(06/26 04:24:47) Sarah: Nick, we hope you get your job back, even if you have to beg, steal, or Bahro....
(06/26 04:24:49) Nick White: They were kept there before being hunted in Rebek.
(06/26 04:24:53) Simon_Bitdiddle: Can I get Teledahn when he doesn't come back?
(06/26 04:24:56) Nick White: And I'm out....
(06/26 04:24:57) ireenquench: Interesting... cool info, thanks.
(06/26 04:24:58) Tayrtahn: Oh, Sarah... that hurt
(06/26 04:24:59) Hardlign claps his hands
(06/26 04:25:00) Haruko: Arigato, Nick.
(06/26 04:25:01) Gondar: ...ooh ick..
(06/26 04:25:01) Breanna Walker: Thanks for giving what information you could
(06/26 04:25:02) Sarah: Thanks, Nick!

(06/26 04:25:10) Simon_Bitdiddle: Thanks, Nick!
(06/26 04:25:10) Chloe: But wasn't it the bahro that were hunted there, that and the native animal to Rebek?

Summary: [spoiler]Hmm... I was there, so let's see: Lots of stuff about Sharper's suicide run to Noloben. The DRC only signed off for him to go in the capacity of an explorer, not a hunter. Sharper's mental state is brought into question; last episode's incident really got to him. White's not sure if Sharper will leave for his hunt before or after the release of Er'cana, just that Sharper will leave either Tuesday or Wednesday.

Stuff about Myst V: White says Cyan described the situation pretty well. Says Bahro are "different" now because of the events in Myst V, which might have something to do with their recent actions. White didn't elaborate on what it was exactly in Myst V that changed them. Rumblings of a "bahrometer".[/spoiler]

[spoiler=Click to reveal chatlog](06/26 03:45:00) [color=blue]Nick White waves hello[/b]
(06/26 03:45:17) Nick White: So everyone hear about the big Sharper debacle?
(06/26 03:45:21) Simon_Bitdiddle: Yah.
(06/26 03:45:40) Nick White: Was anyone there?
(06/26 03:45:40) Jazz: Glad you're not going with him
(06/26 03:45:42) MikeFitz: The man has no fear
(06/26 03:45:45) Sarah: Not the most popular announcement he ever made.
(06/26 03:46:05) Kam Uraki: Hey Nick. Okay, a bunch of us may have seen Engberg. Obviously, we've learned from the DRC, so we can't say for sure one way or another ;)r.
(06/26 03:46:05) ireenquench: I was. He seems crazy. Did Cate set him up?
(06/26 03:46:16) Nick White: That's what it sounded like. I wouldn't call him a fool but I understand the negative reaction.
(06/26 03:46:30) Nick White: Regardless, Cate heard about it. Was not happy. She had another meeting with him.
(06/26 03:46:54) Nick White: Said she was sending him to Noloben for reconaisaance - not to kill a Bahro.
(06/26 03:47:01) Firesign: i thought cate was giving him the noloben book
(06/26 03:47:19) Nick White: She was, just not to kill a Bahro.
(06/26 03:47:42) Nick White: Sharper was not in a good mood this evening - had to calm him down.
(06/26 03:47:46) Nick White: Poor gy.
(06/26 03:48:37) Nick White: I'm not going to sit here and defend him - I wasn't there - but I will tell you that he's a good man.
(06/26 03:48:44) Nick White: YOu don't know what that did to him last month.
(06/26 03:48:52) Nick White: The things tried to kill him.
(06/26 03:49:03) Nick White: They should have killed him. And then he saw what they did to Bahro.
(06/26 03:49:07) Nick White: sorry did to Wheely.
(06/26 03:49:28) Nick White: We'll see what he does.
(06/26 03:49:33) Nick White: He's a hunter at heart.
(06/26 03:49:46) Nick White: And these things tried to kill him and did kill people he knew.
(06/26 03:49:50) Simon_Bitdiddle: Is he going to be on... administrative leave... until he is treated for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorders?
(06/26 03:50:04) Nick White: He then had a chance to go after them. YOu see why he got "excited"
(06/26 03:50:24) Nick White: No. He's still going.
(06/26 03:50:31) Breanna Walker: alone?
(06/26 03:50:34) Nick White: Alone.
(06/26 03:50:49) Deius: You are explaining his motives well, Nick, but it still doesn't make what he wants to do right.
(06/26 03:51:07) Nick White: I'm not sure it's wrong. But yes it doesn't make it right.
(06/26 03:51:13) Nick White: If it is wrong.
(06/26 03:51:17) ireenquench: Nick... you could go with him... Maybe you could be of a positive influence.
(06/26 03:51:25) Nick White: Maybe I could get killed.
(06/26 03:51:27) Breanna Walker: yes
(06/26 03:51:29) Nick White: That'd be fun.
(06/26 03:51:39) Firesign: that would ruin your day
(06/26 03:51:43) Nick White: He has a plan.
(06/26 03:51:46) Thend: Sharper said he had made preparations or something, he seemed rather positive, even against the obvious odds
(06/26 03:51:55) Nick White: He's been doing a lot of "planning"
(06/26 03:52:11) Nick White: Says it's not about big guns this time.
(06/26 03:52:36) Nick White: He's done his research.
(06/26 03:52:36) Simon_Bitdiddle: Nick, you need to tell Cate to scrub this mission and get Sharper to proper psychological help.
(06/26 03:52:49) Nick White: Not my job.
(06/26 03:52:55) Jazz: Is he going to share that research with us?
(06/26 03:52:58) ireenquench: On what... weaponry? Or Bahro?
(06/26 03:53:01) Nick White: Probably not now.
(06/26 03:53:05) Nick White: Both.
(06/26 03:53:12) Tayrtahn: So, not big guns. Any idea what he'll be doing instead?
(06/26 03:53:42) Nick White: Guns and roses.
(06/26 03:53:59) Tayrtahn: music soothes the savage bahro?
(06/26 03:54:07) Kam Uraki: Welcome to the Jungle
(06/26 03:54:10) Nick White: Paradise City works every time.
(06/26 03:54:23) Nick White: Or maybe he'll whisper Patience.
(06/26 03:54:24) Simon_Bitdiddle: He also said that the Bahro were leaving the Pod ages alone.
(06/26 03:54:31) Nick White: Yeah they haven't been around.
(06/26 03:54:35) Simon_Bitdiddle: Are the animals returning?
(06/26 03:54:37) Nick White: Vanished.
(06/26 03:54:45) Nick White: I think most of the animals are dead.
(06/26 03:54:56) Nick White: Bahro killed them all.
(06/26 03:55:08) Nick White: But I'm sure the Bahro aren't mean.
(06/26 03:55:08) Gondar: Hey Nick... have you been out around the other pods? There were the symbols found near the negilahn pod you said, but what about say payiferen?
(06/26 03:55:14) jetuser: Hey nick, I was wondering what happened specifically with Wheely, alot of the drc have been really mum about it
(06/26 03:55:18) Nick White: Haven't seen any.
(06/26 03:55:34) Nick White: They've been mum because it's not pretty.
(06/26 03:55:38) Jazz: You're sure the Bahro aren't mean? So why is Sharper going to kill one?
(06/26 03:55:58) jetuser: Right and I feel that it might help use feel what they are going through right now if we knew -something- about what happened.
(06/26 03:55:59) Nick White: I was being sarcastic. They've wiped out practically the whole animal population.
(06/26 03:56:13) jetuser: I mean even if you said its what happened to the creature on neglihan then that would paint a pretty accurate picture
(06/26 03:56:36) Nick White: Exactly jetuser - you can all imagine what they saw.
(06/26 03:56:49) Nick White: And it was probably a little worse than you can imagine.
(06/26 03:56:50) The Zoologist: Are there any theories as to why the Bahro are becoming violent?
(06/26 03:56:55) jetuser: Ah so its safe to say its something like that?
(06/26 03:56:56) Thend nods his head
(06/26 03:57:05) Nick White: Yes.
(06/26 03:57:08) Nick White: Safe to say.
(06/26 03:57:51) Nick White: There are two lines of thought - sit around until they come and eat us. Go get 'em.
(06/26 03:58:09) Nick White: Kinda like Republicans and Democrats.
(06/26 03:58:14) Nick White: Bad joke.
(06/26 03:58:17) Sarah: The D'ni had no powers that humans haven't proven they can use, and they had no trouble with the Bahro.
(06/26 03:59:00) Nick White: The D'ni weren't dealing with the same Bahro we are.
(06/26 03:59:41) Nick White: You guys are the ones that always bring up Myst V - the game. I think that's pretty accurate.
(06/26 04:00:20) Nick White: Cyan is usually pretty accurate with their depictions.
(06/26 04:01:30) Nick White: the DRC has been suspicious of the Bahro.
(06/26 04:01:47) Nick White: I don't think they had any idea they were capapble of such violence until recently.
(06/26 04:01:58) Sarah: Again, I disagree, though I will give in to Nick's historical knowledge. I think the D'ni had to deal with exactly the free bahro in the first place.
(06/26 04:02:09) Nick White: Well you can think that....
(06/26 04:02:25) Nick White: We can all have our theories...
(06/26 04:02:30) Nick White: Even Sharper.
(06/26 04:02:43) The Zoologist: So, Mr. White... what is the DRC's take on these creatures in a general perspective?
(06/26 04:02:52) Nick White: I don't speak for the DRC.
(06/26 04:02:53) Snazzy: Is there any way to defend ones self from a Bahro attack?
(06/26 04:03:03) jetuser: yeah run
(06/26 04:03:05) jetuser: really fast
(06/26 04:03:06) Nick White: Jab it in the eyes.
(06/26 04:03:41) Nick White: Get a snake.
(06/26 04:04:46) Thend: Nick, so whoever has the tablet is in the realm of 'theories' now, at the moment?
(06/26 04:04:56) Thend: Or do you know?
(06/26 04:05:03) jetuser: Well im not sure exactly if its free will or tablet controlled yet thend
(06/26 04:05:15) Nick White: Agree jetuser.
(06/26 04:05:19) Robotany: I'd like to hear Sharper's "theory"
(06/26 04:05:39) Nick White: Sharper's theory is that the bad ones will kill us the first chance they have.
(06/26 04:05:58) Nick White: No matter what we do.
(06/26 04:05:58) Deius: If that were true, Nick, we'd be dead now
(06/26 04:06:08) Survivor Man: How can you tell a bad Bahro from a good Bahro?
(06/26 04:06:15) Nick White: Maybe they haven't had a chance Deius. There are good ones too.
(06/26 04:06:31) Nick White: Interest rates..
(06/26 04:07:14) MikeFitz: Nick, do you know if anyone has tried to contact Yeesha to get her take on this fight?
(06/26 04:07:24) Nick White: I don't know.
(06/26 04:07:52) Nick White: Nobody got my joke and it was a good one.
(06/26 04:08:38) Nick White: How do you tell the difference between a good Bahro and a bad Bahro? Interest rates.
(06/26 04:09:05) Nick White: Okay sorry.
(06/26 04:09:13) Nick White: What was the question?
(06/26 04:09:18) Breanna Walker: Nick, will you be in contact with Doug while he is gone?
(06/26 04:09:27) Sarah: You could just read the bahrometer
(06/26 04:09:34) Nick White: Nice one.
(06/26 04:09:45) Nick White: I will probably hear from Sharper from time to time.
(06/26 04:09:48) Nick White: Hopefully.
(06/26 04:10:12) Tayrtahn: Any ideas as to when he might leave? And when he might, hopefully, come back?
(06/26 04:10:13) Breanna Walker: Will attempt to keep us informed?
(06/26 04:10:22) Nick White: No, no...
(06/26 04:10:32) Nick White: I have my men on the inside.
(06/26 04:10:42) Tai'lahr: Oh, really? Who?
(06/26 04:10:50) Nick White: Resengs.
(06/26 04:11:01) Firesign: never rat your sources :)
(06/26 04:11:10) Nick White: I haven't.
(06/26 04:11:15) Nick White: I could be lying.
(06/26 04:11:36) Nick White: I'm sure he'll show up before he heads out.
(06/26 04:11:55) Nick White: He's not one to sit in the corner because everyone yelled at him.
(06/26 04:12:04) Tayrtahn: When is he heading out?
(06/26 04:12:10) Alant Sunir: We all just don't want to lose anyone else, and that includes Sharper, Nick. Too many have gone already.
(06/26 04:12:16) Nick White: Tomorrow or Wednesday.
(06/26 04:12:22) Nick White: Agreed.
(06/26 04:12:23) FEENXFIRE: Before Er'cana?
(06/26 04:12:38) Nick White: Not sure.
(06/26 04:12:43) Dalken Starbyne: Nick...I was wondering...is Doug at all worried that this might make other Bahro mad and try to...y'know...attack other people?
(06/26 04:12:48) Nick White: On Er'Cana that is.
(06/26 04:13:00) Nick White: Yes he is worried about that.
(06/26 04:13:16) Nick White: But, as I said, his theory is that nothing is going to stop them from attacking when they can.
(06/26 04:13:30) Nick White: He'd like to learn all he can before that happens.
(06/26 04:13:38) Nick White: Including, if necessary, how to kill them.
(06/26 04:13:51) Deledrius: Does he have any basis for that theory, or is it conjecture?
(06/26 04:14:20) jetuser: Hey Nick, what about yeesha in all of this? I mean she's usually your go to person for issues with bahro or anything remotely to this in the past.
(06/26 04:14:25) Nick White: His basis is probably that they tried to kill him, killed entire populations of animals - for no apparent reason - and killed two people here.
(06/26 04:14:32) jetuser: Has she just dissapeared or?
(06/26 04:14:41) Nick White: Uh, I don't have her cell number.
(06/26 04:14:59) Simon_Bitdiddle: Nick: Did Yeesha turn you down too?
(06/26 04:15:07) Nick White: I don't think you just call up Yeesha.
(06/26 04:15:22) Nick White: She's not my type.
(06/26 04:15:28) jetuser: True, but wouldnt you think that she would know about something like this, considering how close she is to the bahro
(06/26 04:15:36) Nick White: I would think she does.
(06/26 04:15:40) Carval: I know that this has been asked before, but how much does the DRC really know about the Bahro, from D'Ni notes or otherwise?
(06/26 04:15:58) Nick White: Bits here and there. They are looking at those bits more seriously lately.
(06/26 04:16:11) jetuser: I'm pretty sure she wouldnt stand idly by while people get killed by the things that taught her
(06/26 04:16:18) Nick White: I don't have any answers about Yesha, for the record.
(06/26 04:16:24) Nick White: I don't work for her.
(06/26 04:16:37) Tai'lahr: Who do you work for, Nick?
(06/26 04:16:39) Nick White: And no one I know has the ability to call her up with questions.
(06/26 04:16:46) Nick White: Myself.
(06/26 04:16:56) Nick White: Best boss around.
(06/26 04:16:57) Vander: does it pay well?
(06/26 04:17:09) Nick White: No.
(06/26 04:17:23) Nick White: Looking for jobs on the surface.
(06/26 04:17:31) Tai'lahr: Oh, I thought Cate was Yeesha's daugher. lol
(06/26 04:17:47) Nick White: Not sure.
(06/26 04:17:51) Moondweller: Then who's her dad?
(06/26 04:18:00) Nick White: Who's your daddy?
(06/26 04:18:26) Sarah: Nick, do they have your expertise duplicated at all?
(06/26 04:18:40) Nick White: Duplicated?
(06/26 04:18:56) Sarah: Like, are there people there who can cover everything you were doing for them?
(06/26 04:19:24) Nick White: They'll find ways. Everyone can be replaced.
(06/26 04:19:32) Nick White: At least in a job.
(06/26 04:19:43) Nick White: Although they'll never be as good as me of course.
(06/26 04:19:55) Arwen Gemstone: Nick, any news about Engberg? Or do you have any ideas what happened to him?
(06/26 04:20:27) Nick White: No one has heard a word about Engberg.
(06/26 04:21:52) DrFrob: I wouldn't be surprised if Engberg joined Sharper. He certainly has enough reason.
(06/26 04:22:26) Nick White: Yeah I bet Engberg wouldn't mind seeing Sharper kill a Bahro.
(06/26 04:22:31) jetuser: Hmm Nick, is it one of sharper's tasks when he visits Nobelen to figure out the force behind the bad Bahro. i.e. whetehr its the tablet or not?
(06/26 04:22:31) Yellowdog: So thats it Nick? No headlines huh?
(06/26 04:22:40) Nick White: That's it.
(06/26 04:22:43) Simon_Bitdiddle: So, what can you tell us about your translations of Bahro stuff?
(06/26 04:23:02) Nick White: I think you guys know most everything.
(06/26 04:23:04) Thend: Nick, last time, can you ask Sharper to release the information he's gathered for himself on the Bahro?
(06/26 04:23:12) Thend: Please?
(06/26 04:23:15) Nick White: Yes, I can ask him.
(06/26 04:23:17) Chloe: nick, Chloe Rhodes, Uru Action News, I just need a quick verification on something.
(06/26 04:23:21) ResEng B Drechsel: I checked him out... it for sure wasn't Engberg.
(06/26 04:23:38) Nick White: Yes Chloe - and then I have to go.
(06/26 04:23:53) Nick White: I'm not leaving the cavern for good.
(06/26 04:24:05) Nick White: But yeah, I need to get you guys some more stuff.
(06/26 04:24:09) Nick White: I said I would.
(06/26 04:24:18) Chloe: nIck, there's been debates recently about the slave cages in teledahn, wether or not it was bahro that were kept there by the d'ni. Can you verify if the Bahro were kept there, or another slave race?
(06/26 04:24:34) Nick White: Another as far as I know.
(06/26 04:24:49) Nick White: They were kept there before being hunted in Rebek.
(06/26 04:24:56) Nick White: And I'm out....
(06/26 04:25:08) Jazz: Bye Nick[/spoiler]

Here's an edited Q&A style version of Nick's meet. I warn you, though, it is not as funny as the original...
[spoiler=Click here to view the Q&A]
Quote:
Nick White: So everyone hear about the big Sharper debacle?
ireenquench: you have news?
Nick White: Was anyone there?
Sarah: Not the most popular announcement he ever made.
Kam Uraki: Hey Nick. Okay, a bunch of us may have seen Engberg. Obviously, we've learned from the DRC, so we can't say for sure one way or another ;)r.
ireenquench: I was. He seems crazy. Did Cate set him up?
Nick White: That's what it sounded like. I wouldn't call him a fool but I understand the negative reaction.
Nick White: Regardless, Cate heard about it. Was not happy. She had another meeting with him.
Firesign: oh, cate didnt know?
Jazz: Where did he get the book, then?
Nick White: Said she was sending him to Noloben for reconaisaance - not to kill a Bahro.
Nick White: Sharper was not in a good mood this evening - had to calm him down.
Nick White: Poor guy.
Deius: He's going about it the wrong way...it will lead to no good
ireenquench: You sure about that? Maybe she's just agitated that Sharper wasnt exactly along her lines, PR talky wise.
Nick White: I'm not going to sit here and defend him - I wasn't there - but I will tell you that he's a good man.
Alant Sunir: I think we all empathize with him, but we all have a stake in this mess.
Nick White: You don't know what that did to him last month.
Nick White: The things tried to kill him.
Nick White: They should have killed him. And then he saw what they did to Wheely.
Deius: He may be a good man, but he is making a huge mistake if he carries out his plan
Nick White: We'll see what he does.
Firesign: he just gets..excitable
Nick White: He's a hunter at heart.
Nick White: And these things tried to kill him and did kill people he knew.
ireenquench: But, he seemed to be quite trigger happy... he said he'll take one down no matter what kind, no matter what he finds out about them.
Nick White: He then had a chance to go after them. You see why he got "excited"
MikeFitz: At best he gets revenge ? At worst he could provoke them into more attacks on us!
Nick White: No. He's still going.
Breanna Walker: alone?
Nick White: Alone.
Deius: You are explaining his motives well, Nick, but it still doesn't make what he wants to do right.
Nick White: I'm not sure it's wrong. But yes it doesn't make it right.
Nick White: If it is wrong.
ireenquench: Nick... you could go with him... Maybe you could be of a positive influence.
Nick White: Maybe I could get killed.
Nick White: That'd be fun.
Breanna Walker: he should not go alone
Simon_Bitdiddle: That man needs a Chaperone. Preferably someone in a maintainer suit.
Nick White: He has a plan.
Nick White: He's been doing a lot of "planning"
Jazz: What sort of plan?
Nick White: Says it's not about big guns this time.
Nick White: He's done his research.
Simon_Bitdiddle: Nick, you need to tell Cate to scrub this mission and get Sharper to proper psychological help.
Nick White: Not my job.
Jazz: Is he going to share that research with us?
Nick White: Probably not now.
ireenquench: On what... weaponry? Or Bahro?
Nick White: Both.
Dakro: Has he discussed his plan with you? and if so can you explain to us what he told you?
Nick White: Guns and roses.
Tayrtahn: music soothes the savage bahro?
Kam Uraki: Welcome to the Jungle
Nick White: Paradise City works every time.
Gondar: Or at least scares them off?
Nick White: Or maybe he'll whisper Patience.
Simon_Bitdiddle: He also said that the Bahro were leaving the Pod ages alone.
Nick White: Yeah they haven't been around.
Simon_Bitdiddle: Are the animals returning?
Nick White: Vanished.
Thend: Nick, now you are being absolutely evasive lol
Nick White: I think most of the animals are dead.
Nick White: Bahro killed them all.
Nick White: But I'm sure the Bahro aren't mean.
Gondar: Hey Nick... have you been out around the other pods? There were the symbols found near the negilahn pod you said, but what about say payiferen?
Nick White: Haven't seen any.
jetuser: Hey nick, I was wondering what happened specifically with Wheely, alot of the drc have been really mum about it
Nick White: They've been mum because it's not pretty.
Jazz: You're sure the Bahro aren't mean? So why is Sharper going to kill one?
Nick White: I was being sarcastic. They've wiped out practically the whole animal population.
jetuser: I mean even if you said its what happened to the creature on negilahn then that would paint a pretty accurate picture
Nick White: Exactly jetuser - you can all imagine what they saw.
Jazz: The Bahro will just retaliate
Nick White: And it was probably a little worse than you can imagine.
jetuser: Ah so its safe to say its something like that?
Nick White: Yes.
Nick White: Safe to say.
MikeFitz: Yeah lets go attacking a race who can link in an kill us at anytime!
Nick White: There are two lines of thought - sit around until they come and eat us. Go get 'em.
Sarah: I don't agree with the killing idea, but let's be clear, it's not a foregone conclusion that we lose.
Nick White: Kinda like Republicans and Democrats.
Nick White: Bad joke.
Sarah: The D'ni had no powers that humans haven't proven they can use, and they had no trouble with the Bahro.
Tai'lahr: Maybe they're in fear of us and the restoration, and that's why they've become more agitated.
Nick White: The D'ni weren't dealing with the same Bahro we are.
Tai'lahr: Why do you say that?
Nick White: You guys are the ones that always bring up Myst V - the game. I think that's pretty accurate.
Nick White: Cyan is usually pretty accurate with their depictions.
Gondar: So.. you're saying the DRC has known all along what we were up against, and about the tablet and so on?
Nick White: the DRC has been suspicious of the Bahro.
Nick White: I don't think they had any idea they were capapble of such violence until recently.
Alant Sunir: Like a kid with a loaded gun, huh?
Nick White: Well you can think that....
jetuser: But Nick do we know specifically whether its a manner of free will or if someone is controlling them?
Nick White: We can all have our theories...
Nick White: Even Sharper.
The Zoologist: So, Mr. White... what is the DRC's take on these creatures in a general perspective?
Nick White: I don't speak for the DRC.
Snazzy: Is there any way to defend ones self from a Bahro attack?
Nick White: Jab it in the eyes.
Nick White: Get a snake.
Sarah: They haven't learned the vertical hand block, the two-finger eye poke will be lethal!
Tayrtahn: Ah, the Three Stooges defense...
Sarah: Sorry to interrupt, Nick, please continute
Nick White: Nobody interuppted.
Thend: Nick, so whoever has the tablet is in the realm of 'theories' now, at the moment?
Thend: Or do you know?
jetuser: Well im not sure exactly if its free will or tablet controlled yet thend
Nick White: Agree jetuser.
ireenquench: Nick, can you explain again this stuff about free Bahro, Myst V Bahro, D'ni Bahro?
Robotany: I'd like to hear Sharper's "theory"
Nick White: Sharper's theory is that the bad ones will kill us the first chance they have.
Nick White: No matter what we do.
Deius: If that were true, Nick, we'd be dead now
Nick White: Maybe they haven't had a chance Deius. There are good ones too.
Survivor Man: How can you tell a bad Bahro from a good Bahro?
Nick White: Interest rates..
Kam Uraki: In Star Trek, the bad versions of the Enterprise crew had beards
Deius: So how can we contact the good ones to help them help us?
Nick White: I don't know.
Tai'lahr: If this were Star Trek, I'd be dead by now cause I wear a red shirt. lol
Nick White: Nobody got my joke and it was a good one.
Thend: (Everyone laugh as if you got the joke)
Nick White: How do you tell the difference between a good Bahro and a bad Bahro? Interest rates.
[laughs]
Nick White: Okay sorry.
Sarah: You could just read the bahrometer
Nick White: Nice one.
Nick White: What was the question?
Breanna Walker: Nick, will you be in contact with Doug while he is gone?
Nick White: I will probably hear from Sharper from time to time.
Nick White: Hopefully.
Tai'lahr: So, is Shaper your only official connection to the DRC, now?
Nick White: No, no...
Nick White: I have my men on the inside.
Tai'lahr: Oh, really? Who?
Nick White: Resengs.
Firesign: never rat your sources :)
Nick White: I haven't.
Nick White: I could be lying.
AKA: well if you see him before his trip, please let him know we want him to be careful and that we are sorry if we offended him when he came to talk with us earlier today.
Nick White: I'm sure he'll show up before he heads out.
Nick White: He's not one to sit in the corner because everyone yelled at him.
Tayrtahn: When is he heading out?
Nick White: Tomorrow or Wednesday.
Gondar: Is he the type to act rashly because people yelled at him though?
Nick White: Agreed.
FEENXFIRE: Before Er'cana?
Nick White: Not sure.
Nick White: On Er'Cana that is.
Dalken Starbyne: Nick...I was wondering...is Doug at all worried that this might make other Bahro mad and try to...y'know...attack other people?
Nick White: Yes he is worried about that.
Nick White: But, as I said, his theory is that nothing is going to stop them from attacking when they can.
Nick White: He'd like to learn all he can before that happens.
Nick White: Including, if necessary, how to kill them.
Deledrius: Does he have any basis for that theory, or is it conjecture?
Nick White: His basis is probably that they tried to kill him, killed entire populations of animals - for no apparent reason - and killed two people here.
jetuser: Hey Nick, what about yeesha in all of this? I mean she's usually your go to person for issues with bahro or anything remotely to this in the past.
jetuser: Has she just dissapeared or?
Nick White: Uh, I don't have her cell number.
jetuser: Well i mean about the DRC in general, have they tried to contact her?
Simon_Bitdiddle: Nick: Did Yeesha turn you down too?
Nick White: I don't think you just call up Yeesha.
Kolian: You gotta jingle some keys
Gondar: Yeah, we've all tried :-D
Nick White: She's not my type.
jetuser: True, but wouldnt you think that she would know about something like this, considering how close she is to the bahro
Nick White: I would think she does.
Carval: I know that this has been asked before, but how much does the DRC really know about the Bahro, from D'Ni notes or otherwise?

jetuser: I'm pretty sure she wouldnt stand idly by while people get killed by the things that taught her
Nick White: I don't have any answers about Yeesha, for the record.
Nick White: I don't work for her.
Nick White: And no one I know has the ability to call her up with questions.
Tai'lahr: Who do you work for, Nick?
Nick White: Myself.
Nick White: Best boss around.
Vander: does it pay well?
Tai'lahr: Not much money in that, is there?
Sarah: Does that come with dental, Nick?
Nick White: No.
Firesign: easy to get a day off at least
Nick White: Looking for jobs on the surface.
Gondar: Has the DRC had any interest in hiring you back?
Nick White: Not sure.
Gondar: Nah, Cate is Yeesha's younger sister. The one that came after the stuff we know about.
Tai'lahr: Oh, I thought Cate was Yeesha's daugher. lol
Moondweller: Then who's her dad?
Nick White: Who's your daddy?
Sarah: Nick, do they have your expertise duplicated at all?
Nick White: Duplicated?
Nick White: They have cloned me.
Sarah: Like, are there people there who can cover everything you were doing for them?
Nick White: They'll find ways. Everyone can be replaced.
Nick White: At least in a job.
Nick White: Although they'll never be as good as me of course.
Arwen Gemstone: Nick, any news about Engberg? Or do you have any ideas what happened to him?
Nick White: No one has heard a word about Engberg.
DrFrob: I wouldn't be surprised if Engberg joined Sharper. He certainly has enough reason.
Nick White: Yeah I bet Engberg wouldn't mind seeing Sharper kill a Bahro.
Yellowdog: So thats it Nick? No headlines huh?
Nick White: That's it.
Nick White: I think you guys know most everything.
Thend: Nick, last time, can you ask Sharper to release the information he's gathered for himself on the Bahro?
Thend: Please?
Nick White: Yes, I can ask him.
ireenquench: You know Nick, it might be good if you kept in touch with the DRC... people interested in history and language are really interested in getting that stuff you took before you left. And if you leave the cavern for good, what could we do? You are open... the DRC is sometimes all business.
Nick White: I'm not leaving the cavern for good.
Nick White: But yeah, I need to get you guys some more stuff.
Nick White: I said I would.
Chloe: nick, Chloe Rhodes, Uru Action News, I just need a quick verification on something.
Nick White: Yes Chloe - and then I have to go.
Chloe: nIck, there's been debates recently about the slave cages in teledahn, wether or not it was bahro that were kept there by the d'ni. Can you verify if the Bahro were kept there, or another slave race?
Nick White: Another as far as I know.

Jazz: Bye Nick
Nick White: Bye Jazz.

Well, at least we finally know where Myst V fits in the MOUL universe. Makes absolutely no sense to me, but there you have it, right from the source. :wink:

Hm... I still don't understand how things tie in exactly, what Nick meant besides saying that

a) Myst V is historically accurate (which still leaves open if that applies to "Bahro culture and behavior" or goes so far as [spoiler=MystVspoiler]"they were controled by a tablet but not anymore" or even "they were controled by a tablet and now this ebil guy has it and controls them in an even worse manner"[/spoiler]

and

b) the D'ni encountered a different kind of Bahro than we (which leaves open if the latter are just the "bad slashing Bahro"... because if it were just any present time Bahro we encounter... why did we do the Prime Journeys again?).

Nick really needs to clarify what he meant. Many seem to think he meant that the individuals caged in Teledahn and hunted in Rebek were not the same species as the capital-B Bahro (the "linking ants") that we all know. But, this seems to be in direct contradiction to what Yeesha told us about those cages being where the Proud kept the Least, who were "animals that could link". Also, the caged and hunted beings shown in the Teledahn and Rebek bahroglyphs look like the Bahro's representation of themselves in every other glyph. Is there another race of non-humans that has the power to link at will? I have seen no evidence for that.

I believe Nick just did a clumsy job of trying to convey the idea of two groups of Bahro, but we need to question him on what he was trying to tell us and point out the contradictory evidence of Yeesha's speech.

At one point black people were enslaved by other cultures. Does this mean the entire race was enslaved? Of course not. Only a small minority of the African population of the time was ever captured and sold into slavery. Perhaps something similar is going on here. One group is composed of the ones who were freed from enslavement. The other Bahro are from the majority of the population that was never enslaved. But, what are those others after?
