A very special day

Today is Adelia's birthday.  Of all the people that I have met in the cavern, Adelia has become one of my best friends.  A delightfully wonderful person to be around, she has power to draw people together.  I first met her on the night of the CAVCON awareness party in October.  This led me to meet many other good friends of mine in the cavern as well, such as Gete, T-nav, Misty, Page, r'Tay, and so many more that I could just keep going on and on.  The point remains: Adelia has had a major influence on my life and the lives of many others.  If you see her, wish her a happy birthday!

Its been a while...

Today I linked into the cavern and made my way up descent.  My KI light went out well before I reached the top of the Great Shaft so I felt my way up the winding path - my right hand on cold stone.  Being in that growing darkness with the light from the eder tomahn growing ever more distant was unlike any experience before.  Eventually my sense of vision failed as I felt my way along the path ever moving upwards.  I took to all fours and crawled as a growing fear of falling began to take hold.  Finally, I reached the top of the Great Shaft.  Peering over the edge I could barely make out the light of the eder tomahn.  If I strained my eyes I could make out a dim glow from the bottom of the shaft; then, fighting against every urge in my being, I stood and walked further into that darkness.

I remember another explorer, Tweek, took shots of these tunnels.  His journey was years ago, well lit, but still dangerous.  It seems that in the time since the lights have gone out and only cold stone remains.  The only indication that my journey was bringing me to the surface was a hint of fresh air.  Not air from the fans, no.  Air from the vents always pick up a strange odor, possibly from a mold or other fungal growth - though it seems to have had no adverse health effects the explorers as a whole.  No, this scent was different, it came from the surface.

Eventually, Making my way to the surface I found the New Mexico sun burning as fiercely as ever.  Perhaps that journey wasn't the smartest thing for me to do.  Perhaps it was exactly what I needed to do.

An strange message

I got a message from Dean today.  He said something about a strange linking book and apologized for being gone for so long.  He seemed insistent that I journey with him next time and that there was much to be seen.  For the time being he's gone off the radar again.  His KI doesn't seem to be responding.  I wonder what could have happened?

The hunt continues

The last few days I have found myself in Teledahn with Adelia, Gete, and most recently Mcbeam and Misty.  Shroomie watching has become a favored pastime as we are ever looking for that perfect KI picture moment.  I think my visits to Teledahn will have to be more frequent and much earlier as I feel Shroomie may be more active earlier in the day, though what her schedule actually is remains a mystery to me.  Shroomie's appearances have been sporadic.

Interestingly, we have all  seen Shroomie at different moments even when in each others presence and observing the same location.  Perhaps we are hallucinating, but as far as I know the fungi of Teledahn are not of the hallucinogenic kind.  This may reveal some mysterious mechanic in Teledahn that we were previously unaware of.  How I would love to look at the descriptive book of Teledahn, if only for a glimpse of the gahrohevtee.
