[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:19:03] <derynifanatic64> 3there she is
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:19:04] <the_Bee> hello KK!
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:19:05] <Alkari> Hi KK :) Welcome
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:19:09] <KK> EEp, lost track of the time. Hi, all.

[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:19:46] <DesertRose> Hi KK.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:19:48] <derynifanatic64> 3that's OK
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:19:56] <Alkari> oh no - lenni was looking forward to Chat!
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:20:00] Join lenni has joined this channel (~chatzilla@OWIRCN-dc2053e4.res.rr.com).
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:20:07] <DesertRose> And lenni is back. :)
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:20:12] <derynifanatic64> 3lenni's back
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:20:14] <Alkari> yay ;)
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:20:19] <lenni> Wow, my first time being knocked off. How exciting!
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:20:24] <DesertRose> It happens.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:20:24] <lenni> And thanks!
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:20:27] <Alkari> those shifting transfer portals ..
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:20:35] <lenni> Hey, KK
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:20:44] <Alkari> How's things with you, KK?
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:20:46] <derynifanatic64> 3it's one of those moving portals
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:20:49] <lenni> Have I missed anything exciting?
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:20:59] <lenni> (or boring?)
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:21:16] <DesertRose> KK, how do you feel about "far-future" fanfiction? Festil and I are working on one set in 1366. I want to posit that the Great Fire of Rhemuth mentioned in Codex was caused by a peasants' revolt a la 1381 in England, and that's our premise.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:22:23] <KK> Well, I'm never going to go tat far forward, I don't think.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:22:41] <Alkari> The Codex wouldn't mention a post-1130 Great Fire though?
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:23:01] <the_Bee> Whose idea was the fire--yours or Rob's?
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:23:08] <DesertRose> 2nd Ed. does, in the foreword or somewhere very early.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:23:41] <DesertRose> And of course, I can't lay my hands on my copy to find it and quote it.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:24:06] <KK> I can't imagine that he'd put in something like that in the second version that wasn't in the first. I don't recall a hange like that.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:24:15] <KK> change, not hange
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:24:19] <derynifanatic64> 3I'll get my copy
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:24:39] <Alkari> Ah yes - the forward. with the archeological "discovery"
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:24:57] <DesertRose> Yes.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:25:37] <KK> When was this archaeological discovery made, according to Rob?
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:26:28] <lenni> Alkari, while we're waiting, what about your pony question?
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:26:44] <the_Bee> 3 years after the discovery of Codex 1
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:28:25] <derynifanatic64> 3The Codex mentions documents being found in the Great Royal Library of Valoret after the Siege of 1543
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:28:39] <Alkari> The original forward mentions the discovery of Codex 1, and then it mentions discover of a second copy in the ruins of Grecotha
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:29:03] <KK> Well, he's talking about digging new tramways, so I guess that implies that publication of Codex 2 was in the far distant future--or, about in our time, I guess. I"m sure there were great fires, though.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:30:10] <derynifanatic64> 3The forward is said to be written in 1996
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:31:36] <KK> Yes, but it's talking about a Codex that was written in the early 1100's--so what happened in the 1300's wouldnt be in that. Of course, the forwardwould have known about events in the 1300's.... Aie, me.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:31:38] <Alkari> So in the talk about modern technology, it would be intesting to see how the wider use of magic affected technological advances
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:32:06] <KK> I don't think we want to go there.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:32:06] <the_Bee> in real life, copyrights 1998 and 2005
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:32:25] <KK> Though we did print a story in the Archives that takes place in modern times, as I recall.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:32:36] <Alkari> LOL - no, but it is interesting to think about in general!
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:32:51] <the_Bee> Well they had spyglasses a few centureies before they were invented in ouor world.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:33:33] Quit lenni has left this server (Client closed the connection).
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:33:45] <the_Bee> Poor Lenni!
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:33:53] <derynifanatic64> 3bummer!!
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:33:59] Join lenni has joined this channel (~chatzilla@OWIRCN-dc2053e4.res.rr.com).
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:34:01] <KK> And jibs on sailing ships, too.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:34:05] <derynifanatic64> 3wb
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:34:07] <the_Bee> rehi lenni
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:34:08] <Alkari> So how goes the writing, KK?
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:34:12] <lenni> thanks.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:34:14] <KK> Lenni, the system just doesn't like you tonight.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:34:36] <lenni> True. I think my husband has been making too many rude remarks about the cable company.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:34:47] <the_Bee> LOL
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:34:51] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:34:54] <lenni> So, how goes the writing, KK?
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:34:58] <Alkari> cursed again!
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:35:10] <KK> Writing is going well. Alaric now has two page-friends at Coroth, both slightly older, and they're demon-cardounet players.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:35:16] <DesertRose> Oh my.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:35:19] <lenni> (I'm looking forward to reading the chat log!)
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:35:27] <Alkari> lol Strategy games!
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:36:11] <Alkari> I hope Alaric finds a way to deal with Cornelius
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:36:13] <KK> Yep, and this ties in with a bit I've already written, later in the book, where Alaric is trying to read a Torenthi strategist's work in the original Torenthi--and doing fairly well.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:36:28] <KK> His aunt taught him the Torenthi alphabet.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:36:29] <the_Bee> KK. did you invent cardounet for the series, or is it an old name for chess?
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:36:47] <Alkari> I can see him enjoying cardounet
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:36:59] <KK> Then he discovers that Brion has a translation in his library, which suddenly makes life much less difficult.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:37:20] <KK> It's another game, thogh similar.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:37:33] <the_Bee> real life game?
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:37:33] <Alkari> How common was it to speak other languages, like Torenthi?
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:37:51] <KK> I was trying to recall the other night whether I'd ever named any pieces besides priest-king, war-duke, abbot, and archer.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:38:10] <KK> Nope, made it up, Bee.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:38:16] <the_Bee> ah. your creation
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:38:36] <derynifanatic64> 3:)
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:38:56] <the_Bee> We'll have to figure out how to play it. :)
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:39:09] <KK> At the time, I'd mentioned playing cards, and Lester Del Rey said it was out of period. Which it really isn't, but I figured there had to be an analog to chess.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:40:00] <KK> Apparently, they're mad keen about the game in Toremth and other parts east.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:40:23] <KK> BRB
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:40:26] <the_Bee> Tarot cards claim antiquity, but I don't know....
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:40:35] <Alkari> International Cardounet competitions! :D
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:41:25] <the_Bee> In which books is it mentioned?
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:41:56] <Alkari> Camber trilogy I know ...
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:42:41] <Alkari> Not mentioned in later series ?
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:43:03] <the_Bee> Does Catalyst have a scene in which Rhys does very badly at cardounet?
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:44:15] <derynifanatic64> 3I believe that Dhugal and Bishop Istelyn played a game while captives of Loris in Ratharkin
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:44:43] <lenni> brb
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:44:47] <KK> Yes to Catalyst and to Dhugal and Istelyn.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:45:57] <KK> I picture Alaric playing it because he wants to improve his grasp of strategy and tactics. But I doubt he plays much as an adult. At least I don't recall that we've seen him playing. No time, really, for such things.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:46:05] <the_Bee> Codex 2 mentions the game.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:46:51] <Alkari> Unless Richenda has a liking for the game ;)
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:46:53] <lenni> back.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:46:59] <the_Bee> front
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:47:13] <lenni> LOL
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:47:28] <derynifanatic64> 3Cinhil and Alister Cullen played with each other
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:48:06] <KK> Sounds about right.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:48:18] <Alkari> Yes, the amount of work that people like DHugal and Alaric and Nigel had to get through just in 'normal' life was amazing
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:48:36] <the_Bee> Alaric and Javan got a set for their 13th birthday.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:49:07] <Alkari> All the administration of their duchies and earldoms, often at a distance, while undertaking duties at Royal court
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:49:19] <the_Bee> Aalroy, not Alaric *blush*
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:49:38] <Alkari> :)
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:50:18] <Alkari> Oh, KK - I have a model for Cockleburr :D
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:50:21] <KK> Yes, once one settled down to the business of living, there probably wasn't much time for leisure pursuits.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:50:23] <derynifanatic64> 3that was a present from Etienne de Courcy
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:50:37] <KK> Cockleburr was cool!
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:50:46] Join jemler has joined this channel (~jemler@OWIRCN-2be17102.oh.comcast.net).
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:50:52] <jemler> hi folks'
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:50:59] <Alkari> My own old Thoroughbred !
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:51:02] <Alkari> Hi jemler
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:51:24] <jemler> i'm a thorobred?
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:51:31] <Alkari> http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v412/Alkari/IMG_1241.jpg That's him with my (then) 5 y.o. niece
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:52:04] <the_Bee> I wish Nigel had sent Connall to Carthmoor to learn the ropes under his father's seneschal, whoever that was. Maybe then he'd have learned to appreciate his own prospects instead of envying Kelson's.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:52:05] <lenni> Hi, Jemler.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:52:10] <DesertRose> Hi jemler.

[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:53:35] <KK> Alkari, that photo isn't coming up. Check the address?
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:53:42] <Alkari> OK ...
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:53:58] <jemler> little girl on a brown horse?
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:53:58] <the_Bee> It came up for me.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:54:08] <KK> Lenni, that's true devotion to have read them all.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:54:08] <Alkari> Yes - address is OK
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:54:33] <Alkari> It's coming up as a pic on my Chat
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:54:53] <lenni> Hey, I have to get my fix as I can! I was even inspired to find a chat client and show up today! :-D
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:55:16] <lenni> I can click on the link and see the pic.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:55:31] <jemler> i have relatives here, that's why i'm late
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:55:57] <Alkari> LOL I am now looking for another copy of High Deryni, as my original one is falling to bits. See what fandom does
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:56:38] <jemler> i can't find my copy of Deryni Magic. Thank you Amazon!
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:56:39] Quit Annie has left this server (Quit: http://www.mibbit.com ajax IRC Client).
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:57:05] <lenni> You have relatives in chat?!
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:57:06] <Alkari> I have to get the second Camber trilogy
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:57:22] <KK> Got it. And a question. What causes those little white spots? I was looking at a photo recently ofara Phillips' latest Olympic hopeful, and he had those little white spots, too.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:57:23] <jemler> no, here at home. we were playing Settlers of Catan.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:57:23] <the_Bee> Loris got Annie! or did she just go to bed?
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:57:38] <jemler> With LORIS!!! :(
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:57:52] <KK> !!
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:57:55] <lenni> No, no!
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:57:57] <Alkari> KK, I don't know. He got them once he turned about 20 or so - and they becamemore pronounced as he aged
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:58:15] <KK> Interesting.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:58:43] <KK> They almost look like healed bullet holes.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:58:50] <Alkari> He had a gorgeous coppery coat in summer - a real metallilc shine
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:58:58] <KK> Pretty.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:58:59] <jemler> a zebra can'tn change his stripews, but a horse can change his spots?
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:59:16] <derynifanatic64> 3only in the Wizard of Oz
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:59:24] <KK> I had a horse thata color for a while.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:59:25] <Alkari> You can't see it there, but he had huge scars down hi offside rump - he was attacked by a pack of dogs when he was a week old
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:59:36] <KK> Poor thing!
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:59:50] <KK> How did that happen?
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [19:59:51] <lenni> Yikes!
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:00:02] <Alkari> Yes :( The amazing thing was, he was totally blase about dogs - never worried about them at all
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:00:16] <KK> How old was he when you got him?
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:00:27] <KK> Off track?
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:00:46] <Alkari> He was 14, butI had 'known' him for years with several other owners at the ridingclub
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:00:55] <Alkari> He had raced - about 23 starts
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:01:09] <jemler> how many stops?
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:01:19] <Alkari> about 23 I hope :p
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:01:24] <jemler> LOL
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:01:30] <Alkari> after the finish!!
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:01:31] <KK> Scott once had an off-track thoroughbred that absolutely would not run. She'd walk, she'd trot, she'd trot really fast....
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:02:02] <KK> On her first two starts, she laid down in the starting gate.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:02:07] <Alkari> rofl
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:02:23] <lenni> Oops!
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:02:31] <Alkari> sounds very sensible to me!
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:02:35] <the_Bee> A woman with a mind of her own!
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:02:44] <Alkari> why run when you don't have to!
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:03:10] <KK> The one time she ran for Scott, she'd been frightened by a llama sticking its long, snaky neck over a fence at the petting zoo. She screamed, stood up on her hind legs, ran a couple of paces on two legs, then dropped down to four legs and ran about 20 yards--then dropped back to a trot.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:03:22] <Alkari> rofl
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:03:50] <KK> It was a good ride, for as long as it lasted. And she never ran again.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:03:56] <KK> Name was Burning Princess.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:04:04] <Alkari> Mine was thesort of horse that would stop to talk to the llama! He loved cows and donkeys and things
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:04:19] <the_Bee> Where is off-track racing dones, if not on a track?
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:04:22] <derynifanatic64> 3:)
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:04:42] <Alkari> Other horses would take off - he would stand and examine the situation!
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:04:52] <KK> Off-track means that they came off the track. Used to describe former race horses.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:05:03] <the_Bee> ah, ok
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:05:19] <Alkari> Many of them can turn into great ridingh horses, but they usually need a lot of re-training
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:05:35] <the_Bee> In Burning Princess's case, I can see why they took her off.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:06:17] <KK> I briefly had an off-track throughbred. They need lots of work, more than the average coldblood. He needed more than I could give him.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:06:34] <Alkari> Yes.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:06:48] <Alkari> But if you can get one with the right temperament, they c anbe great horses
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:06:48] <KK> A girl brought him as a dressage prospect, and was going to have him in regular training. Just what he needed and wanted.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:06:53] <KK> True.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:07:08] <Alkari> Yes, they need to DO something and keep their brains engaged
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:07:45] <KK> That one nearly cost me the tip of my finger. He jerked his head just as I was pulling a loop of rope through another one. Fortunately, he didn't tear the finger all the way off.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:08:04] <KK> And I'd just that day decided that I was going to sell him, that he was too much horse for me.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:08:08] <Alkari> I had an instructor who used to partly lament some of the warmbloods she had ridden - she reckoned they took three days to learn something her TB could learn in 30 mins.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:08:24] <Alkari> OUCH @ finger. Nasty :(
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:08:42] <KK> Yes. Fortunately it healed well. No impairment. GOod surgeons.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:09:06] <KK> Typing was great physio.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:09:13] <jemler> Where's Rhys Thruyn when you need him?
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:09:18] <KK> That's what I said.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:09:37] <DesertRose> Seriously.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:09:39] <Alkari> Did you do a lot of riding when you were in Ireland?
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:09:57] <KK> Nope. Never got on a horse. I had horses in California, though.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:10:02] <Alkari> Yes, a resident Healer would be handy!!
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:10:19] <KK> I think I got it out of my system then.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:11:10] <KK> Well, I've got to go rattle pans, and then get back to cardounet.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:11:25] <derynifanatic64> 3:D
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:11:29] <the_Bee> I believe my sister did some riding when they were living in Iran (pre-Ayatollah) They didn't geld their stallions.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:11:30] <KK> See you guys next week.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:11:31] <DesertRose> Okay, thanks for coming to see us, KK.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:11:40] <Alkari> Bye KK
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:11:41] <derynifanatic64> 3see you
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:11:46] <the_Bee> good night and good writing, KK
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:11:49] <Alkari> Thanks for coming to chat
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:11:53] * KK steps onto her Portal, waves goodnight, and disappears in a shower of green sparkles.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:11:56] <Alkari> :Lookafter Alaric for us!
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:12:32] <lenni> Ta!
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:12:38] <derynifanatic64> 3bye
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:12:47] <DesertRose> Night night, KK.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:12:51] <jemler> nite kk
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:13:11] <KK> I need to look that up, when gelding became the norm in males that weren't going to be bred. If it was all stallions and mares, battle could be...interesting.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:13:20] <Alkari> LOL
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:13:25] <DesertRose> LOL
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:13:46] <Alkari> And of course, battle horses were weapons in themselves!
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:13:50] <derynifanatic64> 3:D
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:13:52] <lenni> My!
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:14:00] <KK> Horses can be very single-minded, though some stallions are quite the gentlemen.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:14:07] <DesertRose> I'd guess you wouldn't be able to ride a mare in season into battle.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:14:36] <Alkari> Well, you "could"
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:14:40] <KK> And with a lot of mares, somebody would be bound to be in season!
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:14:48] <KK> And on that note...
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:14:52] <KK> Ta for now.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:14:53] <DesertRose> Nighters, KK.
[Sunday 29 May 2011] [20:14:57] Quit KK has left this server (Quit: ).
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)
