First impressions of Eder Saygah:

• Completely dark. No sun, no moon, no stars. Perhaps it's night? (We can hope, at least.)
• Slightly cold, somewhat humid.
• KI can call out from Eder Saygah, but not into it. Unclear how it functions within the Age -- we need to test that.
• Linking in places you on a tall square platform. The platform is made of square stone blocks. Their material is similar to a cross between cinderblock and lava.
• The platform is high up. There appear to be bushy plants below it, just at the edge of flashlight range. Unclear what kind of plants they are from this range. (Possibly thorny?) There is no railing on the platform.
• Damaged/aged staircase leading down from platform on one side (material unknown at the moment). It leads straight down and does not wrap around the platform. The steps are sloped and damaged -- it will be a risky walk down. There is no railing on the staircase either.
• No wind up where we are, but there is the sound of wind down below us.

My thoughts:
• There doesn't seem to be a visible Maintainer's beacon here, but that doesn't mean there isn't one somewhere around. I suspect this Age is not currently Maintained, though, given the state of the KI. (Generally, the KI lattice tends to break down in unmaintained areas.)
• It's pretty unusual for an Age to be entirely dark. There are no obvious lights on the platform. That could mean a number of things ... perhaps the lights were taken or broken? Or perhaps the platform was only intended for daytime use?
• If it doesn't get light within ... 48 hours? ... we should probably link back and see about getting some floodlights hauled in. It could be a long diurnal cycle here ... we can at least get a guess as to whether or not there is regular light by looking at the plants once we get closer to them.

So they're behind this cut. 56K beware!Collapse )

So there ya have it. Let me know if you want more pictures. I found a spot to take a good screengrab of the KI, if you want a close look at it. I'm not sure I can take it *with* the KI, though. (Requires going back to Ahnonay ... mrrrph. And probably getting wet again. Good ol' soggy Ahnonay.)

This is the community for the Stargate/Uru crossover thingie. I'll be making some KI-image posts and stuff probably within the next 24 hours. Probably sooner, actually.

I figure a lot of my commentary in this journal will be IC. Just to forewarn you guys.

You will need to apply to join the community, so you can post. That way we don't get random spammers/bots in here. Sorry 'bout that. Just follow the directions when you ask to join and I'll take care of the rest.
