Well, first up, I have a twitter account, I modded my KI further, I can now post to twitter. Seriously, D’ni tech is down-right *strange*. Link to twitter: http://twitter.com/kaelisebonrai
I’ve been down in the city, checking out a district I’d heard about. Lo and behold, the district had one of those “public library” things, most of the books there were destroyed, unfortunately. Well, except for a couple of ones hidden pretty well. Must’ve been a fairly new library, at the time of the fall — it had a Nexus terminal outside. I reg’d my KI, grabbed one of the ages, and linked back to my Relto. I didn’t want to risk the link without some protection, of course. Glad I didn’t. More on that later. Still shaking. Grabbed a maintainer suit, put the sucker on, took a deep breath, and linked.
Well, no searing heat or brightness, at least. Thanked my lucky stars, and had a look around. Looks like someone’s family age. Pretty non-descript. Looks like the surface back home in Western Australia. Not terribly exciting. But, I found a book back to D’ni, looked like some sort of.. I don’t know what, really. Linked anyway, perhaps not my smartest idea ever. But, I did what I did. Ended up, well, linking onto — well, nothing. A big gaping hole. Fell for a while, damn I *hate* heights, and that didn’t help one bit. I’m shuddering from the thought, and I haven’t stopped shaking since that drop.
Anyways, fell smack dab in the middle of what must’ve been a pub made by the same d’ni builder as Kahlo Pub, if not, well, they must’ve liked eachother’s work, because its almost exactly the same. Except, well… On this one, the door in is damn well sealed, isn’t it?
Well, I’m kinda thankful that I’ve been reading up on writing Linking Books, of late, so, well, I’m going to give it a go.
I always bring a empty book, and some ink with me, in my backpack, along with my other gear. I gave writing the linking book my best shot, and hoped for the best. Stuffed the book into my backpack, hoping to God that it’ll work, and I don’t have to go through the falling ordeal again to get back there.
Anyways, right now? I’m really thankful my relto book is always with me, too. There didn’t seem to be *any* exits out of that place, other than my Relto, and the great big hole in the roof. Actually, come to think of it, there was no roof.
I didn’t look around much, but, there seem to be a bunch of imagers, which is great, but, other than that, I just saw the similarity to Kahlo Pub, and then tried my hardest to get the linking book written. Damn I hope I got it right.
I seriously need some rest… I’m shaking all over, that REALLY gave me the hebe-jeebies. Ugh.
