Well!

I'll be starting this journal in pieces - the truth is I'm still playing hooky from work tripping through the D'ni ages.. but that can wait a mo'.

Got a proper game setup and lo! I got obducted!

I'm a bit put off by this whole affair - I just wanted to check out the lights by the shore - no idea I was going to be whisked off to a new world - I didn't even bring a book with me!

So, here I am in a southwest desert town - the remnants of one anyhow, with a bunch of little videos of a *very* awkward gent giving me tourist notes. Hm. The house is a wreck - for whatever reason, there seem to be circle cutouts as if some hand with a scooper pulled out sphere chunks of various places.. Farley's house - or half a house is the starting point.

Write EVERY number, read every book, every note and pay mind to everything.

Walk, don't run.

Get it? Got it? Good. Here but for the grace of God go I.

Okay! I turned off EVERYTHING, no hints, no subtitles.. this is going to be a pure experience.. And it starts simply enough, with a dark and stormy night. How cliched! I landed in a camping area by a lake, the view was lovely enough.

Then the light show started.. Kept going forward, and came to the fire. So lovely.

Sat a while by the fire and admired the night, rumbly lightning sky and all.

Eventually decided to head up the trail, it's not like I could go back. Oh hell, what IS that?

Campground08.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/x5w62He.jpg

Shit! shit, shit! I really cannot GO back now!

Campground09.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/7MSWQpo.jpg

Aaaaargh! at this point I just decided to not worry about it and go with the flow.

And we're off! There was a burst of golden light and little firefly dots everywhere and the next thing I know, am in the Southwestern town.

More later.

Well! After the sparkly lightshow, I re-materialized? in some cave - with trees.. Obviously from the campground I was in earlier. Where the heck is this? The lantern on the table works, a blessing if it gets dark here I suppose.

Hunrath001.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/5A3i6ky.jpg

Out of the cave and oh, Toto, I don't think we're in Kansas anymore.

Hunrath002.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/lP1VDI7.jpg - the sound of pebbles dropping off the ledges above - the ambiance.. This place is amazing!

Then on to this 'welcome committee' greeting.. Hunrath003.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/i6GSBaM.jpg This guy.. I hope to meet him later. Hunrath it is.

So I'm off to the white house with the picket fence - but the sky here, Hunrath004.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/g49hW2m.jpg - it's glorious!

Hunrath005.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/hddgxCY.jpg
Hunrath006.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/JRbrfoX.jpg

Farley's house - it's seen better days, that's for sure. Hunrath007.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/3RTQchO.jpg SO I poked around the house - doors are all locked and there's a message from Farley herself on the lawn. Hm. Be careful of who to trust. Found a letter written by "CW". Farley mentioned the name - is this who I have to be careful of trusting? Will see.

Saw off in the distance a red beam shooting into the sky.. it's hitting something.. some kind of protection, they ARE expecting a battle after all. Came upon the rest of the town. An old mining town from the southwest.

Hunrath008.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/zN00fSE.jpg - then found the message about 'downtown' Hunrath and the tree! - wait.. what did Josef say - a 'cell'? Is this a prison?

Red tree is red. Hunrath010.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/O0QZgFI.jpg Checked out a mine entrance, Hunrath009.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/tUyM9Ct.jpg - there's nothing here but a round stone wall in the back. Just what IS with all the round sphere shape chunks of stuff - Farley's house, the mine cave, the entrance cave.

Hunrath011.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/3t7tdpz.jpg - planets!

Am I bluuuuuue? - I tried to skirt this to get to the area where the beams were coming from, the noise the thing makes is uncanny.. Decided to give it a whirl, what the heck, if it's dangerous it'll be a quick end.. but no. Not dangerous, but it does make my hair stand up on end. Hunrath012.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/8I8nuNL.jpg

The red beam.. what is it doing?

Hunrath013.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/AUDvITK.jpg
Hunrath014.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/wJpzwI0.jpg

Will investigate this shortly.

Walked around in the corral area and there's a room with a vault door in it - banging and clanging sounds coming from inside, (someone's busy, must be CW) and off to the left a door that leads to an elevator and a second story door perhaps?

Hunrath015.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/BnVI9pJ.jpg
Hunrath016.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/iEdikDl.jpg

Am going to continue on my scout of the perimeter and check out by the river down below..

Oooookay! There's a little red projector near what I assume is a waterfall.. only it's not got water nor is it falling. The water in the river is actually quite still. Maybe it's summer and dry? Dunno. The water by the elevator is flowing well enough, so maybe not.

Hunrath017.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/iffEKat.jpg
Hunrath018.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/Xzb0eL6.jpg

There's a gate nearby that is closed. Big funky contraption.. and is that a plane prop? Cool!

Okay, so there's nothing I can get to from the ground here. I need to go ring that green doorbell at the vault. So off I head, and got a nice snap of the slope looking up through the grass. From this angle the environment looks a lot greener than it is. Hunrath019.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/8lK6s5V.jpg

I went and rang the doorbell. Out came CW and he's kinda distracted and isn't making much sense - though the getting home bit I can understand well enough. Okay, he wants me to power on this place. That works by me! So up I go to check out the second story and maybe I can get into the building with the lasers. Nice view. Hunrath020.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/Q0a9MjU.jpg

Can get across to the red laser platform, but can not interact with it in any way - no switches or buttons to push, and the door at the far end of the catwalk is locked (that's par for the course here).

I am off up into the rafters of this place and find where the water's coming from, and instead I go over a little bridge and into a path that leads to a ripply force-field wall! It's got to be the read beam that's keeping it on. The world outside looks as weird as it gets. Hunrath021.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/7hXKBCn.jpg
Love the colors though.

Hunrath022.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/Avm5pJA.jpg - look at that world hanging up there.
Hunrath023.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/tkuU5Ns.jpg - a nice over view.

The water is of note - so clear and the colors it catches and reflects.. Hunrath026.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/01Q16Ec.jpg

There IS a water source here that is being diverted.. Hunrath024.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/KZ6B1zT.jpg The fair assumption is that the water is for the power, there's likely something locked behind that river gate, so maybe I can get it open if the water is running. By the scratches in the floor panels at the base of it, I have a good idea which way it needs to go. How to make it do is the trick.

Hunrath025.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/YD1Hkex.jpg The rushing water is mesmerizing..

Later.

Well, I guess that's it for getting back up to where the water comes from. Hunrath027.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/BMsnP9T.jpg There's no way I can see unless it is to get in from the building with the lasers - Hunrath028.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/TFD6V0Q.jpg However, it appears there's stuff against the inside of the door, so it may be blocked. Gah! If the Hand of the Maker here is using the same logic as in the D'ni Ages, I'll be back to this one later.

Hunrath029.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/S277njA.jpg

Still, C.W. needs his power, even though Farley warned me to be careful of who I trust.. who else is here *to* trust?

Aha! Now there's the waterfall! Hunrath030.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/tIk8zVx.jpg

Haaa!! Hunrath031.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/mCbrSvA.jpg

I worked out the gate mechanism and got in behind it. Oh! Butterflies and a babbling river, a hammock, camp setup, rowboat and the birds! I love this place! Seriously, I want to live in a place like this. Heaven.. just heaven.

Later..

Ah.. okay. a junkyard. Hunrath040.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/Erc5jWx.jpg Went inside the big sphere - it's on quite a contraption.. whaaaaa.. are those glowing geodes? Hunrath041.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/PZIy4Rz.jpg

High view from the sphere - of another sphere with a chunk of rail yard.

This thing is humming up a storm - Hunrath046.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/E8E2YiA.jpg

Wait.. are those cables holding the floating rocks in place? Hunrath047.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/zbFUAtj.jpg

More later..

Hm. What is this thing doing? So far it's just making noise. Hunrath048.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/XEUKWRm.jpg

On to check out the far edge of the place.

Hunrath049.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/gqGgKC2.jpg

Some gorgeous rock formations.

Hunrath050.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/nLD4s3b.jpg So I went as far as I can, the land just dead-ends at the force-field wall that I can't get through..
Hunrath051.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/JtNU706.jpg
Hunrath052.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/50yovcW.jpg ...annnnnd obviously am not getting through here. Back to the settled area.. to the gas station!

Hunrath053.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/90ox0fX.jpg The pump on the left has a crank and the gas line runs up to the train yard. Okay, this one is fairly evident.
Hunrath054.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/9ZVeUHp.jpg

There's a device inside, I can see it's glowy light.. I've run all around there's no way in that I can see, but that trestle that goes up to the ridge where the junkyard is up top is my next point, no doubt.

I think I need to work out the power. If it's not the diesel locomotive engine, I don't know what is.

That was easy! Once I worked out that the 'prime' toggle on the switch actually meant something - I've got power! The first thing I want to do is get into that storage building with the lasers.. okay.. off to explore now the juice is on.

Ohhhh! Oh shit! I dispatched the red laser.. whoa! I did not think that would be so loud! That was terrifying and amazing at the same time.

Hunrath062.jpg - http://i.imgur.com/yndV51t.jpg

Okay, so now the bad guys, the Mofang, can get in? I guess that means I can get out!

This is gonna be good.

NO dice getting out, but I found that by going through, I seem to pop out on the exact opposite side. Gonna hafta get some snaps of the phenomenon. So I did find some notes in books in the work area, and got into Farley's house. Okay, for the clues I need for the dome exit/entrances. Very clever.
