FROM: KI TERMINAL 001
Hello! Thank God! I thought I'd never get the KI system running again! I found your letter in the Bevin classroom while searching for something to eat... I'm so glad there's another person down here!
When the DRC left, they must have stripped the KI/Nexus system down to just the basics... navigation, identification, and imaging; but I finally managed to get the communication function running again. Do you know if there are others? Did you stay behind or were you left behind, like I was? Do we know if anyone stayed behind in the Ages? Maybe I should stop asking so many questions... you probably don't know any more about what's going on than I do.
My name is Lauren... I'm a DRC cartographer. I've been on an expedition to the outer tunnels (and um... other assorted adventures) for the past month or so and when I came back, I found there was no one here; apparantly the DRC simply forgot about me. I've been wandering around the city for days on end... I've currently set up camp in the Antechamber of the Kings, and have managed to find a portable radio lying around in Tokotah II, but at the moment it can't pick up a signal.
There's so much to do. I keep asking myself why I just don't make my way back up to the surface... why I don't just leave like all the rest have. But I can't do that... I want to stay... to explore... to simply be here in the cavern.
Well.. hopefully you get this message... I'm not sure I got the communication systems working 100% (Considering I'm a cartographer, not an engineer.)
It is good to feel another presence in the cavern! Shorah!
Oh, and by the way... if I'm not mistaken, the KI/Nexus system has an uplink to the Internet... so theoretically these messages should be viewable from the surface.
