PostSubject: Colonial Authority's Jaylen Secrets   Wed Apr 18, 2012 4:58 am

Okay, I somehow only now realized that, obviously, the Jaylen cities would be well researched and - for the Jaylen (or rather the fact that humans aren't the first aliens to visit Novusvita) to remain secret - whatever has been found there would have to be kept under wraps. Infact, pretty much everything regarding the Jaylen cities will have to be kept under wraps. Why?

-The material out of which the cities have been constructed look something like this:

-The material is indestructible to anything humans can come up with.
-The material is a quantum computer on the nanoscopic level.
-The cities are each made of single chunks of the stuff (no individual bricks/slabs/etc. can be found).
-The cities couldn't have possibly been built by the Zen'ji (not even humans have this kind of technology).

It was decided to keep this under wraps (eg. by saying that the ruins are inaccessible because they are very sacred and by leaving out all the above details) in order to keep colonists' focus on the rest of the planet and to keep the public (back in Sol as well) from freaking out in the knowledge of a race much, much more advanced than humanity without first knowing much more about them. However, research still goes on at Baal.

Now, how will David get clearance to this kind of information in order for Book II's plot to occur?

Righto then. I have no idea how he'd get clearance. How important would you have to be to be allowed to know about the Jaylen? Would Don know?

Don might know. Actually, he probably would, given him being the Head of Science in Darwin.

Anyway, David would go to Marcus with his proposal for an expedition to Baal and Marcus would respond by saying that teams have already been sent to check out the electromagnetic disturbances. David would then request files of the data (on the grounds that he was part of the team that initially discovered the disturbances) and Marcus would refuse, revealing to David that there was something fishy going on here. Then... I have no idea how he'd get around Marcus. He'd probably eventually make Marcus give in and reveal what they know (and don't know) about the Jaylen cities and let him go. I just don't know how to bridge the gap. Maybe David should attempt to do more research on the cities first and then spot all the gaps and confront Marcus with them or something (it's just that David isn't really the confrontational type, though might be if he knows the Colonial Authority is hiding stuff from the colonists).

Well, he'd still know about it, at least. Maybe David could question him about it and be suspicious 'cause he can't tell him, or something.

Hmmm... Maybe that could be a discussion on the train journey to the space elevator... Pondering

Do you think the TCA (Terran Colonial Authority. Should probably mention them in Book I) would have come to the conclusion that the Jaylen really existed?

You missed them because I forgot to mention them. The Colonial Authority is basically the branch of human government in charge of the human colonies and human activities on non-Earth bodies colonised by humans. They're the ones keeping info mentioned in OP secret from everyone else. The topic of this thread, in other words.

So, do you think they would have come to the conclusion that the Jaylen really existed?

I'd assume so. I mean, makes sense. I'm sure they'd have a ton of theories though, but the ruins are kind of an obvious give-away that something really smart lived there.

Yeah...


Still don't know how David'll get Marcus to let him investigate. What do you think Marcus will think about the prophecy about David the Hunters told him?

Maybe we should list how much the TCA knows about the Jaylen (and maybe even the prophecy). Also, I've decided that there will be a TCA camp at each of the Jaylen cities, as well as other Jaylen-related sites, keeping them secure and studying them and such. I'm still decided whether the Hunters (which I'll rename either the Dark Knights or the Brotherhood of the Shadow (initially the Dark Brotherhood, but then an assassin of an organization of the same name tried to kill me in Skyrim), by the way. Not sure which. I might end up using both interchangeably (I'll just have to figure out how Viera will know of / discover their name)) have driven humans out of Jin or killed them in Book I.

(In other words, four matters to discuss:
-How much exactly does the Colonial Authority know of the Jaylen?
-Were the humans in the camp at Jin killed by or driven off by the Hunters?
-Should the Hunters be renamed the "Dark Knights", "Brotherhood of the Shadow" or both interchangeably (or should I risk calling them the Dark Brotherhood)?
-How would Viera know about [insert new name for the Hunters here]?)

-Doubt they'd know much, just, well, basic stuff you can figure out from staring at the structures, I'd guess. I wouldn't think any of them would have the same sort of experience Priantos had, what with the vision and all, so I doubt they'd have been able to find out much.
-Killed, me thinks. Oh, and their heads are all mounted on spears. Yes.
-Eh... I like the sound of "Brotherhood of the Shadow", personally. Although it sounds a bit cliche'd.
-Stories and rumours, I guess.

-Well, the prophecy is part of Zen'ji mythology, so they'd probably be able to connect the dots. Also, I discovered how this could link to a initially completely unrelated series about psychics I wanted to write. Possibly the secret real reason Novusvita's been colonized. This will also allow me to bring Earth into the third book. I'll explain later, but basically humans would've known of the Jaylen before coming to Novusvita with said idea, but I'm still kinda on the fence about it. Anyway, the evidence for the Jaylen aren't just in the ruins (by the way, those "other Jaylen sites" I mentioned are things like crashed ships and stuff which remain completely classified), but also Zen'ji mythology/religion and what can be gathered from the "First Age" of their history. (By the way, have I told you about the Zen'ji's four historical ages?)

-Well okay then. Very Happy Said masacre would've happened really close to the end of the first book and Marcus will probably tell David about it in that whole revelations discussion. (Something like "We lost contact of [blah blah blah] found their corpses as well as a number of dead Zen'ji [blah blah] mystery [blah]".)

-Clicheness is my other worry, yes. *Idea* Brotherhood of Shjerr'dûll. Lemme explain. Yesterday I renamed the Order of the Arcane to the Order of Acanthos; Acanthos being the first Valieren king after the fall of the Aka'ji. It seemed appropriate. So, why not do something similar with the Hunters? "Shjerr'dûll" is the new Zen'ji name I just spontaneously came up with for the Shadow (as it just occurred to me how relatively stupid Shon'jah sounds). This means that "Shon'elikat" will now become "Shjerr'elikat". However, any names or name changes can be bettered at a thread I'm about to make. ^^

-That still seems rather unlikely... unless the Brotherhood is much older than I originally planned (predating the Iga'ji as apposed to vice versa) and/or have some tie with Svia'ji history so that Viera would be able to make the connection between the men tracking David and the Brotherhood.
