I'm with you Becky.....I never considered it would be Phil. I was really hoping that Yeesha would be the voice from the past.....oh well.
Boshette: I guess it seems so....I was really hoping for it to be more. You can do a running jump off the columns onto the grassy area surrounding it. You have to turn off the fence first of course, by using the bottom left icon in the menu grid. But there is no way to reach those little windows or get beyond the walls. I keep wondering if the flags have any significance, they remind me if the ones in Minkata.
For the new players who don't know, Phil Henderson was a Restoration Engineer working with the DRC in 2002. He disappeared in late September of that year in Eder Kemo, leaving behind a message that he had "found a way", and that he would not be coming back.
He returned, over a year after his disappearence. He had been changed by the Journey, and claimed to have physically seen Yeesha, and seemed to have gained abilities, such as making a Relto page appear out of nowhere.
On December 16th, 2003, Phil was abducted by Victor Laxman and Dr. Watson while on the rope bridge in Ae'Gura. He was questioned regarding his activities, warned against returning to several highly unsafe areas, and released approximately two weeks later. Shortly after his release, Phil was recorded as being in the Guild Hall on Ae'Gura when a wall in the area collapsed. All that was found in the ensuing rescue effort was a smashed KI. Most - if not all - of the DRC currently believe Phil to be dead, though some explorers hold out hope that he was somehow saved by some device of Yeesha's.
I thought I would put the edited version of the chat log between Phil and Sharper that someone posted on the MOUL website, in case they missed it.

(08/03 18:48:1 Tweek: they have been everywhere, Watchers Sanctuary, REltos, Hoods, City
(08/03 18:49:10) phend: There are only a few here...
(08/03 18:49:2 phend: ... not like there.
(08/03 18:49:5 phend: They come and go, but...
(08/03 18:50:16) phend: at times the sky goes dark...
(08/03 18:50:49) phend: ... good and bad. They darken the sky.
(08/03 18:51:00) phend: Gathering.
(08/03 18:51:4 phend: Many ages, even Releeshahn.
(08/03 18:52:15) MattUtah: You've been to Releeshahn?
(08/03 18:52:24) phend: I've seen the dark sky many times recently there...
(08/03 18:52:35) phend: They struggle there.
(08/03 18:52:54) d'ni everything: bahro create darkness?
(08/03 18:53:20) phend: Darkness only from there number.
(08/03 18:54:13) phend: Yes. They come and go, and they struggle now.
(08/03 18:54:22) silverdragonesse: why?
(08/03 18:54:23) phend: They choose now.
(08/03 18:54:43) TomahnaGuy: Choose?
(08/03 18:54:47) TomahnaGuy: Choose what?
(08/03 18:54:50) phend: They can choose now.
(08/03 18:55:07) phend: Their own path.
(08/03 18:55:50) phend: Feedom. No one controls them now.
(08/03 18:56:24) phend: Yeesha can do as she does.
(08/03 18:57:03) phend: The least are free. It should be that way.
(08/03 18:57:39) phend: They struggle... good and evil.
(08/03 18:57:56) phend: The Bahro choose... and they battle.
(08/03 18:58:50) Tweek: Please Phil, who freed them?
(08/03 18:58:59) phend: You and another.
(08/03 18:59:53) phend: You freed them... from the prison. That was the first freeing. It continues.
(08/03 19:00:27) phend: They should be free. But freedom brings choice.
(08/03 19:01:05) phend: Yeesha is who I trust. She knows.
(08/03 19:01:47) phend: Yeesha comes and goes. She plays a role. But sometimes we see her.
(08/03 19:02:34) phend: She is watching.. and considering... and growing.
(08/03 19:03:07) phend: She is often there... in Releeshahn.
(08/03 19:03:59) phend: The Bahro's choices affect us all...
(08/03 19:04:12) phend: even Yeesha...
(08/03 19:04:25) phend: ... but she is powerful.
(08/03 19:05:03) Douglas Sharper: Phil!
(08/03 19:05:06) phend: Some of the Bahro watch you... for good and for ill...
(08/03 19:05:26) Douglas Sharper: It's true? You're alive!
(08/03 19:05:35) phend: here in the cavern they watch and... even guard.
(08/03 19:05:45) phend: Hello Douglas!
(08/03 19:06:54) Douglas Sharper: I can't believe it.
(08/03 19:07:15) phend: It's been a long time... for me to be gone.
(08/03 19:07:19) Douglas Sharper: Phil...I'm sorry,.
(08/03 19:07:47) phend: It wasn't you Douglas. It was what was.
(08/03 19:08:2 Douglas Sharper: I've been sick..it's so good to see you again.
(08/03 19:08:42) Douglas Sharper: Have you been with the Bahro?
(08/03 19:08:56) phend: It's good to see you again, too. I'm sorry I didn't come back sooner.
(08/03 19:09:12) phend: There has been much to learn.
(08/03 19:09:16) Douglas Sharper: I can't believe it.
(08/03 19:09:46) Douglas Sharper: Have you been with the Bahro?
(08/03 19:10:32) phend: Yes.
(08/03 19:10:46) TomahnaGuy: Oh! Which ones!?
(08/03 19:10:50) phend: They are gathering.
(08/03 19:10:56) Douglas Sharper: This war is scaring me.
(08/03 19:11:14) phend: This is only the beginning.
(08/03 19:11:23) Douglas Sharper: I was afraid of that.
(08/03 19:11:4 phend: Only a skirmish... at the periphery.
(08/03 19:12:17) Douglas Sharper: I killed one.
(08/03 19:12:2 phend: I know.
(08/03 19:13:25) Douglas Sharper: I may have made a mistake.
(08/03 19:13:52) Douglas Sharper: It stepped in front of me.
(08/03 19:14:00) phend: They protected us all from you making a mistake...
(08/03 19:14:1 phend: and it cost a life.
(08/03 19:14:55) Douglas Sharper: I was angry. Do you know what they did to Wheely?
(08/03 19:15:51) phend: I know. It was a choice. Wheely found a place she shouldn't have.
(08/03 19:16:15) Douglas Sharper: But do you know what they did to her?Her body...
(08/03 19:16:32) phend: There are evil ones.
(08/03 19:17:05) phend: They have chosen evil. Very evil.
(08/03 19:17:19) phend: They are free.
(08/03 19:17:3 Douglas Sharper: I have never seen anything like them.
(08/03 19:17:5 phend: They are also good. Some have chosen good.
(08/03 19:18:13) Douglas Sharper: And they have saved me.
(08/03 19:18:39) Douglas Sharper: More than once.
(08/03 19:19:01) phend: They saved us all from an early battle.
(08/03 19:19:21) Douglas Sharper: I'm not going back. I think it's coming here.
(08/03 19:19:51) phend: They will guard as long as they can.
(08/03 19:20:09) Douglas Sharper: And how long is that?
(08/03 19:20:16) phend: but there are larger battles elsewhere.
(08/03 19:20:36) phend: Much rests on the battles.
(08/03 19:21:03) phend: They choose...
(08/03 19:21:16) Douglas Sharper: I can't believe you are back Phil. IT's good to have you back.
(08/03 19:21:16) phend: they choose sides.
(08/03 19:21:3 phend: I'm here to prepare...
(08/03 19:21:47) phend: to help prepare.
(08/03 19:22:07) Douglas Sharper: And I'm with you.
(08/03 19:22:30) phend: You have chosen sides... I can see that.
(08/03 19:22:39) phend: They see it too.
(08/03 19:23:20) phend: Choose to stand with her.
(08/03 19:23:24) Douglas Sharper: I have seen the work of the evil. My choice was an easy one.
(08/03 19:24:14) phend: It's what comes first... a small statement... but a statement nonetheless.
(08/03 19:25:11) Tweek: Phil, do you know what is at the core of the choice the Bahro make?
(08/03 19:25:34) Church of Ralph: revenge?
(08/03 19:25:34) phend: What is at the core of any choice?
(08/03 19:25:55) Dalken Starbyne: Phill: Freedom?
(08/03 19:28:37) phend: Show respect for Bahro that guard your lives.
(08/03 19:28:43) From [Relayer] Sharaya in [Relayer] Sharaya's Relto: The Bahro have left
(08/03 19:29:00) phend: I must go...
(08/03 19:29:09) phend: ... but he will return.
