Big news for the cavern

The all guilds' meeting was this past Saturday; explorers were so great in number we had to relocate to the Guild of Messengers' hood.  I believe the total was 63; absolutely incredible.  The first bit of news was very exciting.  Trekluver has been in contact with Cyan and has taken it upon himself to revive the Guild of Greeters.  These "New Greeters" are currently accepting applications for members.  I for one find this very encouraging.

Annabelle brought us news of her latest marker quests and plans to release even more in the coming months.  While I've never been one to participate in these I'm always glad to see others working to bring life to the cavern.

The Guild of Writers didn't have an official representative at this meeting, J'Kla and Lunanne spoke about Rehgehstoy.  Their discussion gave me hope that one day I would be able to write an age.

The next point of interest regarded an on-going 'plague' of people in the cavern who seem bent on harassing others.  Apparently a few people have been tinkering around with the KI in hopes to find a way of dealing with these griefers.  There is great promise in their work.  Hoikas of the Guild of Writers has apparently been involved and has a semi-working version.  Having been one of many who has dealt with these griefers, I will be keeping an eye on the development of this KI functionality.

The next topic at the meeting was semi-related.  Here JWPlatt, Mac, and Rarified discussed opening a testing ground for experiments in the cavern and made mention of various experiments already in progress (such as the KI upgrades mentioned above) with hopes of sharing their results with the public in the future.

Last but not least the Guild of Messengers made an announcement regarding their new magazine The Cavern Post, as well as mentioning that Nev'yn is actively helping to reorganize and reactivate the Cavern Criers.  This would be accompanied by a new regularly occurring KI-mail of news also called The Cavern Post.

I have to say, being at the meeting was truly a great experience.  It's always good to see so many others wanting to continue life in the cavern.  I once heard someone say "...We are the new D'ni people..." and I couldn't agree more.
