Wake Up And Smile! With Dr. Kodama

I attended the DRC morning meeting concerning the restoration efforts in Ae'gura and the City. The evening meeting with Laxman last week was a bust (birthday boy was partying too hard to remember to show up), so my first-ever DRC member was Dr. Kodama. And it turns out that he really is the cheerful little ray of sunshine I had heard about. Yikes, DRC meetings with Sharper and Kodama-kun butting heads must've been a headache-inducing nightmare for everyone else. Oh well, I don't have to work with the guy, and he did answer my questions:

They have found lots of evidence of the Relyimah, which somewhat surprises me. I figured such a secretive organization would have done more to wipe out all traces of their own existence, even when they were called out and "officially" disbanded (and who knows if they weren't still lurking around unofficially).

They also found evidence of works from the Minor Guild of Actors. I'd love to have a translated D'ni script and learn more about the guild than just a blurb in the King Naygen notebook. Maybe some explorers could get a full D'ni theater production up and running!

Mission(s) Accomplished

I finally got my KI fully calibrated with the Great Zero! No more marker missions! Unfortunately, I've read the notes from Laxman's morning meeting, and if this "extra data" in the lattice forces Laxman to restart the GZ, I will cry.

And speaking of meetings, I enjoyed attending Cyanist Moke's meeting in May and I hope to attend tonight's. I have never met a DRC member before. I've got a couple of questions for Laxman, one about the GZ and the other about the two new Ages listed on their site!

Eder Tsogahl (Phase Three) and Rahtevnee (Phase Two), along with the possibility of the Hood Game Room and Katha Island being opened. Katha has me the most interested: a haunted mansion with D'ni puzzles made by Faresh the illusionist. The mystery of his daughter's death and what the Relyimah did in the mansion after they were given ownership of it intrigues me. Lots of hidden puzzles and secret rooms just waiting to be explored!
