- Terrati Lab Show Spoiler
On the 24th expedition of the Fan Ages Touring Club we visited Jamey’s Ages: Vaiskor Area 2 and Terrati Lab, by J’anim Paedet, and Hayal by Corvus. See Minasunda’s video!
Vaiskor Area 2, released in November 2005, is an Age we already visited some time ago. We went back there to refresh our memories of the overarching storyline, that of a Guildmaster and his conflict with an organisation known as ISA, and more specifically with a person named Halfdan. A ‘Machine’ was taken by the Guildmaster from Vaiskor to …
Terrati Lab, released in December 2008, is a corridor with four rooms and a terrace. Journals in the two rooms on the left, written by the same Guildmaster from Vaiskor (“Book of the Vais”), give more details into Paedet’s story. Episodes of amnesia are mentioned. He is clearly not D’ni, and for a while worked for the ISA on another Age, Shemedaut.
The first room on the right has globes, and a (non-working) lift, that leads to a large transport vehicle and to a transparent dome. The second one is a medical lab of sorts; a journal at the bottom of another shaft mentions that workers developed an unknown virus while working in Vaiskor, and the plants too have started to die.
The terrace has two flowerbeds with some plants, and shows that the Terrati Lab indeed sits in the middle of a lake, in a vale somewhere in Vaiskor.
Hayal, released in January 2009, is a wacky fun Age, in the spirit of Pre Swaltu The visitor links in a TARDIS, and is welcomed by Marvin the Android who offers a welcome journal, and free towels are available on a table.
The Age has various islands: a hut, a ringed planet with a rocket shuttle (click on the floor to launch it), an iceberg with a sword in the stone ice, a solid rainbow, two hot air balloon (one can be moved by clicking on the floor)…
A UFO flies from island to island, and if you are fast enough you can have a tour of the Age!
At the bottom of the well there is a corridor with two skeletons and another robot; walking at the end of the corridor, the visitor will start to float and swim, and will end next to the hovering carpet.
The golden symbols lead to a secret garden inside the planet, with a gazebo, a pond, and two carnivore insectivore plants, one of which is endlessly and in vain trying to eat a dragonfly on its nose.
A Twitch stream will be available for the next two weeks.
Next time (August 2 at 11:00 KIT) we will visit a few more Ages from 2008–09: Wianeroy, Soundgarden, The Maze. Until then!
