The D'ni 101 classes will begin on Monday, January 6, running through Monday, February 10, 2014. There will be two classes per week: Mondays at 09:00 KI time and Mondays at 23:00 KI time. shokhootahn Rehn will be teaching both classes. The classes will be held in-cavern at the Guild of Instructors' Hood.
Each class wil start in the hood's classroom, but may not necessarily end there. The first class will last about 90 minutes. The remainder of the classes will last from 30 to 45 minutes, depending on the amount of Q & A during the lesson. For those of you who have taken the 101 class and are interested in continuing your studies, the 201 class will begin in early February. D'ni 101 is a 6-week course, in which you will learn to count in D'ni and read D'ni texts.
There will be a website for explorers to reference for class materials during the class. Hopefully, the interest level from the community will be such that we can add more classes. There are currently six instructors in the Guild: shokhootahn Rehn, shokhootahn shen, shokhootahn Svig, shokhootahn Ben, shokhootahn Misha and shokhootahn Molly. The latter two are not currently available to teach due to RL concerns.
We hope to see you there! Take care and have a blessed day! .shorah gah bigtotee (Peace and blessings.)

Don't forget that the GoW is hosting the final part of the Christmas Party Hop in Gehn Shard on Saturday, December 28th at 13:00 KI time. Be sure to stop by and comment on their excellent work!
It's that time again!
The Guild of Writers is gearing up for a brand new release of their shard, Gehn. We won't have a full list of the exact changes until the release, but a big one will be a fix to those pesky Eder Gira baskets!
And that's not all: the Guild will also be hosting a live chat and video feed on Google+ as they deploy the release. This will be an interesting peek behind-the-scenes and a chance to see how much time and effort goes into releasing a new build for a shard.
The event will happen on Monday, December 23rd at 13:00 KI time (3PM EST/ 8PM UTC). We will update this post with a full list of bug fixes at that time.
Congratulations on another job well done, GoW!
The holidays are always a busy time of year...and the cavern is no different!
The International Hood will be hosting their own party for everyone to enjoy: the International Hood Holiday Open House - "Log in to log out". The fun will start in their hood all day on Sunday, December 22nd.
The group has encouraged explorers to bring their favorite holiday recipes to share with everyone. It's recommended to put your name on these recipes so it's known who should get credit for the tasty treats.
There will also be music streamed at https://aegura.harriman4.com for the party.
To you from us, the International Hood Members would like to wish all explorers and Cyan staff members the very best Happy and Healthy Holiday Season!
Jamie Marchant is excited to announce the launch of the new version of the well-known Heritage Night!
Starting December 15th, 2013 at 13:00 KI-time, that Sunday will kick off a monthly retelling of the major events which have occured during the history of Uru Live. The current event series will focus on recollections of events that have occurred since the cavern's most recent reopening back in February 2010 to the present.
The first session of this redesigned Heritage Night will include the following:
- Greetings & welcome to both old and new explorers
- Historical narrative by Jamie Marchant, a special guest, and/or both
- Chat and questions concerning the storyline.
- A related activity/field trip.
Anyone can attend, thus allowing new explorers to hear stories they "myst", while veteran explorers can "take the trip down memory lane". This first session will also end with a Q&A for new players.
Jamie and your fellow explorers look forward to seeing you there!
