    Visually, this age is quite intriguing; it features a long, mountainous ridge, with a swampy interior, dotted with huge mushrooms. There is a hut off in a hole in the wall, the main link-in point. From there, it connects to a number of long catwalks, which go to the source of power for this age: a large, solar antenna, which feeds off the rapidly orbiting sun. From this power, lights are maintained, as is a bucket system, which connects to a spore processing room above the hut (and then to an office above that). By going to the processing room and draining the water under the hut, we find a passageway, that leads to some prison-rooms. From here, it leads to a back-side walkway, which connects to a little cliff that over-looks the back bay of the area. Another little tower built into the cliff suggests a secluded study, or perhaps a trading port (boxes still dot the area).


    [h=1]D'ni History[/h]

    The history of this Age is revealed in a link to an office in The City; the office of Douglas Sharper. He kept detailed journey entries from 1997 up to the present, exploring his rebuilding of Teledahn and his research thereof. From his research, it appears that it was a gift for the Lord of Caterers, Hinahsh, on his 250th birthday, in the D'ni year 8990. When Hinahsh died in 9000, control of it passed to the Guild, and subsequently, Guild Captain Ventus. Ventus began the industrialization that is currently seen on the Age. After some amount of time, a man named Manesmo bought the Age, and kept it in good shape, though he apparently started dealing in slaves, a nasty underbelly to the D'ni civilization. The underground tunnel and prison cells were used for this, and they would be transported to Rebek, where games for sport would be played out with the slaves, much like ancient Rome. Major inspections into this slave trade were being performed just prior to the Fall.


    [h=1]DRC History[/h]

    Douglas Sharper spent a good deal of time in this age; much like Hinahsh, it's suspected, he became quite endeared with its quirky environment (and rich history). Despite taking numerous leaves of absence, mostly during Christmas time, this is where the bulk of Sharper's DRC work occurred (though towards the end he had moved on to work on the Great Tree Pub in Ae'Gura). Sharper kept his knowledge of the slave aspect of this Age hidden from his superiors, like Dr. Richard Watson (and others). Befriending the translator Nick, he learned as much as possible about Teledahn (and then Rebek) without the consent of the DRC. Some of his notes in fact support Zandi in his outright ignoring of DRC wishes. Douglas also met a massive creature that swam in the waters (but also breathed normal oxygen, he later found out). He named this animal 'Shroomie' (and all of it's kind) because they liked to feed on the giant mushroom-trees. While he did hunt one of them for sport, he reportedly later regretted the action, and has not done so since. As Sharper had finished much of the restoration process needed on Teledahn by 2002, he was recalled to work on Ae'Gura, and only took brief visits to Teledahn after that.


    In 2004, a small alcove was discovered in the Slave Cave section of Teledahn, which contained a Linking Book to a small room in one of the Tokotah Buildings on Ae'Gura, opposite the DRC's offices. Within the small chamber was a link to Phil's Relto. When the Cavern was re-opened to the public in 2007, explorers kept a watchful eye on the alcove in Teledahn, which had been emptied at some point in the past. On September 10th, 2007, the Spy Room link returned, though this time in the form of a Bahro stone, and its destination altered. Regardless, it remained there until the closure of the Caverns in April of 2008.
