Heritage Night: Stories Of MOULa’s past.

Hello and welcome to another Heritage Night, the event where I talk about the game’s history. Since the anniversary of MOULa happened earlier this month, I thought it would be nice to hear the stories from explorers who have been here a while about their experiences in the game.

I will be up first. My name is Jamie Marchant and I have been an explorer since MOULa started in 2010. I had played URU offline, but was not interested in playing the paid-for Myst Online in 2007. I occasionally checked in on the site after it was cancelled. One time, I checked the site in 2010 and then realized the game was now free! It was very exciting, I downloaded it as soon as I had the chance. At the time, it was very hard to get into, due to everyone trying at once. I had to wait a week before I could get in.

It was fun to see all the new content not present in the offline game. I soon realized that what made MOULa special was: playing with other people.

I attended a number of memorable events; my favourites involved authorized hacking (restricted to certain areas) and computer controlled avatars (“bots”).

At one time, the bot OHBot was standing in his neighbourhood 24/7 and one could come by and visit him. Authorized hacking would also occur regularly. I loved this since I would visit the city to see if anything was up. If nothing was happening, I would check to see if there was any authorized hacking. If not, I could always ‘hang out’ with OHBot.

Sadly, this time is passed, but these and other events can now be remembered thanks to events like this one. Thank you for listening to my story, I have time now for a few questions.

Next up: Tai’lahr! Please welcome her to the stage!

Tai’lahr’s story:

“I’m not going to tell you the history of the cavern; Jamie and the Heritage Night group already do a good job of that. I’m just going to tell you about my experiences and how it felt back then.

I arrived in the cavern in late December 2006 – the day before The Great Scream (although I wasn’t present when it happened or even aware that it did for awhile). I explored on my own for awhile, but began meeting other explorers. At the end of January 2007, the DRC released Eder Delin and I spent many a late night helping with door runs there and making new friends.

In the first few months, there was a steady stream of new things for explorers to find. About once a week, something new would be discovered. Sometimes it was a linking book released by the DRC, a linking stone left somewhere by the bahro, a Relto page left somewhere by Yeesha or an article of clothing. And, in the first week of every month, explorers would run through the ages looking for a sparkling object to add to their calendar island.

One of the most exciting things to happen was in April when the pedestal and bahro stone to the city appeared in the hood book room and for awhile, our hood had a special visitor. Every time someone linked into the hood, a bahro would appear beside the pedestal. We took turns linking in while others posed with the bahro.

Also that month, my hood mates and I got to participate in the making of Marten’s video, “Talk” (http://alderem.noip.me/Uru/talk.html) which was very exciting for us. Later that month, I joined the Guild of Greeters. I did most of my greeting in the “A Beginner’s Bevin” neighborhood where the Restoration Engineers (ResEngs) would give Orientations.

Many of the explorers were proactive in those days. If they wanted something, they organized and took action. Sometimes, it was an event or action to get the DRC’s attention to get something they wanted and sometimes it was to accomplish something on their own. Like the “Day of Darkness” on May 1st when everyone wore black to protest the lack of communication from the DRC. Or, vidkid organizing the “24 Hour Great Zero Recalibration Revival” in April and the “Bevin Objection” on the Great Stairs in September.

Even the Memorial outside the Kahlo Pub which seemed to be because of Wheely & Rose dying there was actually something that Explorers had been suggesting for a long time.

When the DRC released the Er’cana linking book and encouraged explorers to help feed the lake algae by dropping pellets, there was much discussion among the explorers about pellet recipes and whether or not it was even the right thing to do. They persistently requested more information from the DRC to help them decide what to do. JWPlatt went to great lengths to convince the DRC to provide explorers with the Lake Point Data which they eventually did.

Ordinary explorers could find themselves in extraordinary situations – like when Rils went on an expedition to Negilahn with DRC member Douglas Sharper. Or, when Yeesha appeared to a group in a neighborhood or when a bahro would appear to explorers. Back then, it wasn’t an illusion created by bots; it was real and it was a rare event that was treasured by the explorers who experienced it.

It was an exciting time to be an explorer in the D’ni cavern.

I was fortunate to be present for many DRC member visits, but the one that’s most important to me was when Dr. Watson told us the future of the cavern was up to us; that the guilds and explorers would have to work together writing, maintaining, mapping, and exploring new Ages. Explorers took that message to heart and are still working together to bring new ages to the cavern.

End of Tai’lahr’s story.

(02/27 14:26:55) Tai’lahr: Okay.
(02/27 14:27:18) rarified: I try (without having been there) to have much of a draw to events with Bots and Magic Shows.
(02/27 14:27:34) Tai’lahr: Try to understand?
(02/27 14:27:44) rarified: It’s spectacular as a technical feat, but it seems to diminish the IC experience for me.
(02/27 14:28:06) rarified: Do you find that to be the case personally? Or is the gathering of a group the attraction?
(02/27 14:28:21) Tai’lahr: I kinda feel the same way, but I support the people who put them on and who attend because it keeps the cavern active.
(02/27 14:29:00) rarified: What about you Jamie? You said you came in just as the Bots were being developed?
(02/27 14:29:46) skuavi II: friends in the game know my great fascination with this game
(02/27 14:30:01) HeritageNightGuy: Hmm….
(02/27 14:30:38) HeritageNightGuy: I think hacks are none-cannonical but there are a fun none the less.
(02/27 14:31:06) HeritageNightGuy: I don’t think I could every see I saw any of the hack in a stirct IC talk expect fro in parseing or as a really wird dream
(02/27 14:31:21) skuavi II: I always ask how things are new ages to explore and discover new old machines d.ni
(02/27 14:31:23) rarified: Yah, I would try to steer clear of the Purity of D’ni society mindset.
(02/27 14:31:43) HeritageNightGuy: I don’t ahve a problem with breaking cannon though, it’s fun
(02/27 14:31:47) skuavi II: the kiva’s exists in real life
(02/27 14:31:59) HeritageNightGuy: I’ve used hacks in the past to show things that you can’t see in game like the light meter
(02/27 14:32:14) HeritageNightGuy: I know some of the tours use them this way as well
(02/27 14:32:29) rarified: The most attractive one I could use would be fly mode for taking photos or movies.
(02/27 14:32:54) skuavi II: brb
(02/27 14:32:56) HeritageNightGuy: Ok
(02/27 14:33:13) Tai’lahr: I would like to thank Jamie for inviting me to tell my story here today and in general for hosting the Heritage Night events and preserving our history of the cavern.

The Fun House vidoes

At a recent event, a retold the stories that lead to the creation of The Fun House and filmed it. Here are the videos for your viewing pleasure:


Hertiage Night: Why I love the serries!

Welcome to Heritage Night. Today, I will be talking about the Myst games and what makes them so great. This may sound redundant (since you probably already know this), but I’m hoping it’s not and that you learn something great about the series which you never thought of. After I’m done talking, I will give you a chance to tell your story of why you love the Myst series! So, let us begin:

-The graphics – the graphics in the series have always been impressive given the limitation of computers when the games were released. The graphics still look great today, if not a tad dated and some of the pre-rendered games look a bit pixelated on modern LCD displays. Most of the graphics in Myst Online also hold up very well today, considering most of the textures, models, and shaders were made for the 2003 URU and the game uses no modern graphics techniques.

-Sound and music – The sound and music have always been very good. Myst III and IV have the best soundtracks, followed by Myst and Riven. I’m not a huge fan of the URU or Myst V soundtracks though. The Myst III and IV soundtracks can easily be described as ‘epic’.

-Game play- The game play is solid for the most part and this does make the series a good set of games, but this is not the reason why I find them so awesome as I do.

– Puzzles – Puzzles in the games are pretty interesting, although that is not the major reason why I play the games. Solving puzzles normally results in unlocking new story segments and new areas to explore, which is rewarding. The only problem is that some of the puzzles are a bit too challenging and I haven’t beaten Myst IV because of this.

– Story – most people would probably say that they play the game for the story. I think of the story as the events that occur in the game. The stories of the games are often interesting and, as I have said, it makes the challenging puzzles worthwhile. Since I haven’t finished Myst IV, I can’t comment on its story. With that in mind, the best story was Myst III, which made me feel sad (but never ‘too’ sad) as the story went on. I will avoid spoilers, but when the whole thing resolved itself at the end, I felt a feeling of great joy.

Now, I’ve saved the best for last. The reason I love the series the most, more than anything else! The reason is “the world!”

The world- the world of Myst is what makes me keep coming back to it! The world is complete, lived in, and has been built to the last detail! Everything exists for a reason; there is logic in the world! The world is complex and there is lots to explore. There are still things I have never seen before scattered across the world. Exploring these worlds is what makes the games so fantastic and so engaging! We are talking about a series where fans ask such questions as ‘What powers the spinning domes in Riven?’, ‘How did Gehn get the Whark into the lake at Plato Island?’, ‘Can the sun in Teledahn really be a sun?’ and many others. These are the worlds of Myst; they are complete to the point of the creators coming up with their own civilization with its own social norms and even its own religion. I think the game with the most in-depth world is also the largest in terms of its size. The only game to be on five CDs! – Riven! Well that’s what I think; why do you like the series? Anyone want to come up here and tell your story?

At this point we casually talked about the series. I have decided not to feature this talk in this blog.

Heritage Night: Door Puzzle ages

Hello everyone. Now that people have arrived, we can get started. Please follow me to the garden age, it is just over there… point… {we go there}.

People where driected on where to sit or stand.

Today, we will be talking about this age and its “brother” age. Either a copy of this age or its brother is located in each hood, with the exception of two or three. The exceptions are: ‘Kireal'[probably the wrong spelling], the Fun House, and possibly ‘The Hood Of Illusions’. Both this age and its “brother” are garden ages. They both contain a puzzle that, when solved, will open that door. I pointed at the door. The puzzle involves figuring out how to open the door and then running though it. Solving this puzzle is referred to by the community as a ‘door run’. The puzzle is solved the same way in each age. You need a small group of people to solve it. The name of these ages are ‘Eder Tsogal’ and ‘ Eder Delin’. You get a rather interesting prize for solving both ages.

Now onto some brief history. Interestingly, I had trouble finding much information about the ages. I know they appeared in 2007. We don’t know who wrote the ages or for what purpose. At one point, I read somewhere that the word “Elder” means garden in D’ni. [citation: http://www.eldalamberon.com/dni_dict.htm](rel.to redirects here.)

Now let us solve this age! How many new people are here?(who have never solved this puzzle?). I would like to give the new players a chance to solve the puzzle for the first time without hints. What do you think? Lastly, I would like to record your text chat for the Heritage Night site archive. Is that OK with everyone?

(04/11 16:32:43) Christian Walther: (not a number, I know, it stands for “minus one” beause the minus sign is hard to read)

(04/11 16:32:58) Guild of Guilds: yay

(04/11 16:33:03) HeritageNightGuy: Ok so I’m -1

(04/11 16:33:14) Christian Walther: avro, what do I do now?

(04/11 16:33:18) Patricio: pat needs to press…real bad.

(04/11 16:33:21) 2x avro: Did know there was a zero !

(04/11 16:33:32) Christian Walther: I said I number them differently than most others.

(04/11 16:33:39) Guild of Guilds: depends on how you number

(04/11 16:33:48) Patricio: ok 0 it is

(04/11 16:33:49) From angelmyst: if you are teaching a newbie why are they making it confusing by changing the number to door pattern?

(04/11 16:33:54) Patricio: 0

(04/11 16:33:56) Guild of Guilds: you could use letters

(04/11 16:33:57) Christian Walther: I find them easier to recognize by number of quarter spiral turns than by numbering them sequentially 1-7.

(04/11 16:34:01) To angelmyst: don’t ask me

(04/11 16:34:11) From angelmyst: lol

(04/11 16:34:18) To Christian Walther: Wait if where teaching newbes, why are you changing the pattern?

(04/11 16:34:19) Guild of Guilds: or sins

(04/11 16:34:20) Patricio: this’ll be fun

(04/11 16:34:25) angelmyst: kinda confusing to a new player….

(04/11 16:34:30) Guild of Guilds: avarice, greed, pride, anger etc

(04/11 16:34:31) angelmyst: the basic is 1-7

(04/11 16:34:41) Patricio: sloth

(04/11 16:34:51) From Christian Walther: I’m not changing anything. I’ve always done it like that. It doesn’t matter which way you number them.

(04/11 16:34:54) Guild of Guilds would go for sloth

(04/11 16:35:02) 2x avro: My delin caller was Patricio lol

(04/11 16:35:06) Patricio: cole sloth

(04/11 16:35:19) angelmyst: the rule of thumb in teaching is KISS…keep It Simple Sweetie

(04/11 16:35:19) To Christian Walther: Yes but don’t we want to use the way that most people we be using in the future?

(04/11 16:35:31) From Christian Walther: No, because it doesn’t matter.

(04/11 16:35:32) Guild of Guilds: ok let’s

(04/11 16:35:35) Guild of Guilds: now what?

(04/11 16:35:56) From Christian Walther: I did warn him and if he wants it differently he can choose another caller.

(04/11 16:36:06) To Christian Walther: I see your point but I don’t know if others will

(04/11 16:36:16) 2x avro: door caller get a fullm sequence

(04/11 16:36:18) Christian Walther: Does my numbering confuse you? Would you like to let Patricio take over?

(04/11 16:36:39) Patricio: NO! I WANT to be0!

(04/11 16:36:46) Christian Walther: okay okay :)

(04/11 16:37:05) 2x avro: ok CW

(04/11 16:37:37) Christian Walther: Alright, I think you know what we have to do avro, so I’ll do it even without exact instructions, is that OK?

(04/11 16:37:57) 2x avro: ok

(04/11 16:38:02) From angelmyst: avro is the newbie?

(04/11 16:38:24) To angelmyst: he is, or at leat we thought he was, why do you know him?

(04/11 16:38:34) Christian Walther: I will call the full sequence first, then individual numbers. Press when you hear your individual number.

(04/11 16:38:43) Christian Walther: starting door

(04/11 16:38:45) 2x avro: liken i said have played Delin with Pat.

(04/11 16:38:52) From angelmyst: no, he just does not seem like a newbie…he seems to know, but is pretending not to.

Heritage Night: Strictly IC Talk

Part of the fun of MOULa is pretending that everything in URU is real. Talking in character was a lot more popular when thing where actually taking place in cavern on a regular basis. So I thought I would organize and event where we will talk about things happening in cavern from a stricked ‘URU is real’ perspective. I have organized an event to do just that, it was announced on the Myst Online forums. With the event over I have decided to post the chat log here:

(03/08 15:13:51)  mTX17: shorah
(03/08 15:13:57)  Rabenschwinge: Well, rumors. I don’t know, how much of it is true.
(03/08 15:14:14)  angelmyst: Has anyone else besides my twin and I  done any attempts to travel up to the Cleft again?
(03/08 15:14:18)  HeritageNightGuy: Though some people have considered stealing those blue hats and whering them in cavern
(03/08 15:14:46)  HeritageNightGuy: I’m sure some people have, I haven’t done that yet
(03/08 15:14:55)  Guild of Guilds: not from down here
(03/08 15:15:18)  Guild of Guilds: other rumours say that some people are trying to clear the way
(03/08 15:15:26)  Guild of Guilds: that would be fun
(03/08 15:15:44)  angelmyst: Well, my twin found something on her lates  trip…she sent me a note….someone left a map in the Tunnels, near the SOuth GAte
(03/08 15:16:05)  HeritageNightGuy: What does the note say!
(03/08 15:16:13)  Rabenschwinge: The south gate of the city?
(03/08 15:16:38)  angelmyst: she found a map, that looks like a copy of one of Aitrus’s…..but it is modern, not original.
(03/08 15:16:49)  angelmyst: it was partially burned, and in a puddle,.
(03/08 15:16:58)  angelmyst: Yes the old south gate…
(03/08 15:17:05)  HeritageNightGuy: Oh I forgot to mehince I am recodering this and will transcribe on the Hertiage Night blog
(03/08 15:17:14)  angelmyst: the one on the other side past the ARCH
(03/08 15:17:27)  angelmyst: lol sure now you tell me…
(03/08 15:18:14)  Guild of Guilds: anything interesting on the map?
(03/08 15:18:16)  angelmyst: SOmeone else has been down there….across the water…to the place where Ghen came with Atrus.
(03/08 15:18:16)  HeritageNightGuy: I forgot I had the recoding on till now and only relized now I would like to transrbie it
(03/08 15:18:18)  Guild of Guilds: secret tunnels?
(03/08 15:18:30)  HeritageNightGuy: A coffie stain prephapse
(03/08 15:18:38)  Guild of Guilds: heh
(03/08 15:18:43)  angelmyst: well…my twin has found some wild things…she may never come back.
(03/08 15:18:49)  Rabenschwinge: It would be great to be able to walk these tunnels up to the surface…
(03/08 15:18:52)  Guild of Guilds: oh dear
(03/08 15:19:09)  angelmyst: The Great Shaft would take a lot of work to rebuild.
(03/08 15:19:27)  Guild of Guilds: you’d only have to rebuild the elevator
(03/08 15:19:33)  angelmyst: only??
(03/08 15:19:41)  Guild of Guilds: :)
(03/08 15:19:42)  angelmyst: it is a marvel of engineering
(03/08 15:20:09)  Rabenschwinge: I’m not sure I would trust this elevator. How big is the shaft? One mile, if I recall correctly?
(03/08 15:20:18)  Guild of Guilds: 3 niles?
(03/08 15:20:21)  angelmyst: like the  gear system of Gahreesen….totally amazing
(03/08 15:20:23)  Guild of Guilds: not sure
(03/08 15:20:33)  angelmyst: up….let me check.
(03/08 15:20:56)  Rabenschwinge: I am afraid of heights… don’t want to fall 3 miles down
(03/08 15:20:58) Rabenschwinge smiles
(03/08 15:21:14)  angelmyst: The map says 500 units to the surface…which translates to about 32 miles.
(03/08 15:21:22)  Guild of Guilds: huh?
(03/08 15:21:29)  angelmyst: but not sure which surface the map maker is refering to./
(03/08 15:21:50)  angelmyst: the map is hard to make out..most of it is in D’ni
(03/08 15:21:50)  HeritageNightGuy: Where can I see the map?
(03/08 15:21:52)  Rabenschwinge: I think, the 32 miles are the length of the way up alltogether, not only the shaft
(03/08 15:21:57)  angelmyst: and my D’ni is very bad,.
(03/08 15:22:05)  angelmyst: very likely.
(03/08 15:22:08)  Zeke365: do you ever worry about the Cavern colasping when walking through this place?
(03/08 15:22:12)  Guild of Guilds: that sound more likely, yeah
(03/08 15:22:28)  HeritageNightGuy: Hmm it sems quit well consturcted
(03/08 15:22:32)  angelmyst: no…the material this place is made of is too hard.
(03/08 15:22:33)  Guild of Guilds: all the time…
(03/08 15:22:43)  Rabenschwinge: Sometimes I do, yeah
(03/08 15:22:48)  HeritageNightGuy: I’m more conceded about being attacked by the Barho
(03/08 15:22:52)  angelmyst: ever read about the machines used to drill….
(03/08 15:22:58)  angelmyst: no.
(03/08 15:23:01)  Rabenschwinge: But I`m a little bit paranoid
(03/08 15:23:04)  angelmyst: the bahro are peaceful
(03/08 15:23:21)  Rabenschwinge: Not all of them, as far as we know
(03/08 15:23:23)  HeritageNightGuy: Yes but what about the Bad Bahro!
(03/08 15:23:51)  angelmyst: I hear them all the time in the city…and in the past 5 years have never heard of one attack.
(03/08 15:23:55)  Rabenschwinge: That story Sharper told about Negilahn was frightening
(03/08 15:23:57)  Zeke365: sometime I wonder what the bahro think of us just staring and watching us
(03/08 15:24:03)  Zeke365: Kind of creepy
(03/08 15:24:11)  HeritageNightGuy: I know
(03/08 15:24:14)  angelmyst: they are probably more afraid of us…
(03/08 15:24:31)  HeritageNightGuy: I too debt they will attack us but some parts of the cavern are kind of creepy
(03/08 15:24:36)  Rabenschwinge: I guess, we are as strange to them as they are to us
(03/08 15:24:44)  HeritageNightGuy: That’s probally the case
(03/08 15:24:50)  angelmyst: the communication with the Tablets, shows they are more intelligent than we give them credit for,.
(03/08 15:25:00)  HeritageNightGuy: How do they even cummunicate
(03/08 15:25:03) Zeke365 cringes
(03/08 15:25:15)  Rabenschwinge: If only we could figure out how to talk to them…
(03/08 15:25:31)  angelmyst: thier own shreaks and cries….I wish I could….
(03/08 15:25:36)  HeritageNightGuy: Hmm that gives me an idea for my story…
(03/08 15:26:02)  angelmyst: hope my twin does not run into a bad one..if there is such a thing.
(03/08 15:26:19)  angelmyst: she has run into enough wild things down there,.
(03/08 15:26:19)  Zeke365: You want to talk to them your brave
(03/08 15:26:37)  Rabenschwinge: Maybe we can communicate with them with symbols
(03/08 15:26:38)  HeritageNightGuy: Diden’t Dr.Waston talk to them?
(03/08 15:26:44)  Rabenschwinge: Like the ones on the tablets
(03/08 15:27:03)  angelmyst: Well they do understand symbols….remember…in…oh my forget the name of the AGE./
(03/08 15:27:12)  Zeke365: i guess but have you found any tablets to commuite with yet
(03/08 15:27:19)  Rabenschwinge: I don’t know about Dr. Watson, but Yeesha and Phil Henderson seem to be able to understand them
(03/08 15:27:25)  angelmyst: no no tablets here….
(03/08 15:27:35)  Rabenschwinge: Noloben?
(03/08 15:27:54)  angelmyst: they seem to like to take their Bahro stones/books though…maybe that means something.
(03/08 15:27:55)  HeritageNightGuy: My Andirod is on the sufurce at the moment
(03/08 15:28:01)  HeritageNightGuy: (speaking of tablets)
(03/08 15:28:05)  Zeke365: Seems like those two have quarl
(03/08 15:28:11)  angelmyst: ya..Noloben…maybe…I forget.
(03/08 15:28:19)  Ch4mP: Ceno and me are going to Delin and Tsogal after this Event. I hope you guys come too :)
(03/08 15:28:21)  angelmyst: was years ago.
(03/08 15:28:38)  Rabenschwinge: Well, as far as I know Myst V depicts the actual events that happened, so we can assume the tablets are real
(03/08 15:28:42)  angelmyst: are you going to open a door?
(03/08 15:28:54)  Zeke365: i just wonder if they will make up and work together
(03/08 15:28:56)  HeritageNightGuy: That sounds fun lets go!
(03/08 15:28:59)  angelmyst: fair assumption
(03/08 15:29:09)  Ch4mP: Now? :D
(03/08 15:29:21)  Zeke365: We need start searching then
(03/08 15:29:26) HeritageNightGuy pulls out a smart phone with inernet connection
(03/08 15:29:39)  Guild of Guilds: internet? dsown here?
(03/08 15:29:42)  angelmyst: lol…how did you manage to get reception down here.
(03/08 15:29:44)  Rabenschwinge: Does it work down here?
(03/08 15:29:44)  Guild of Guilds: *down
(03/08 15:29:54)  Zeke365: Really how do you get a signal with this rock
(03/08 15:29:58)  Guild of Guilds: D’ni Wi-Fi?
(03/08 15:30:07)  HeritageNightGuy: It appears Myst 5 has a 2005 copyright, so the events took place around then
(03/08 15:30:11)  angelmyst: My twin found it only works nearr lage veins of obsidion.
(03/08 15:30:19)  Guild of Guilds: the Great Zero doubles as a router now?
(03/08 15:30:25)  angelmyst: lol
(03/08 15:30:37)  HeritageNightGuy: Don’t you know about D’ni Wi-Fi, that how the DRC could send us live pictures years ago
(03/08 15:30:54)  HeritageNightGuy: What do you think the camra you see in The Fun House is used for
(03/08 15:31:05)  Rabenschwinge: Well, if the KIs are able to communicate through ages, I think, Laxman could have found a way to connect them to our internet
(03/08 15:31:07)  HeritageNightGuy: If you interested Kimail me and I set up with Deni wifi
(03/08 15:31:09)  angelmyst: ah…interseeting
(03/08 15:31:10)  Guild of Guilds: hm, yeah
(03/08 15:31:20)  Zeke365: Yes makes me wonder how far in there restoration efforts they got and even if it stable
(03/08 15:31:39)  angelmyst: probably better than anything on the surface,.
(03/08 15:31:39)  HeritageNightGuy: It’s quit unstable unforchently
(03/08 15:32:24)  Zeke365: So why would they leave there cones and stuff behind should they have not cleaned up first how rude
(03/08 15:32:34)  angelmyst: tkol needs to get out of the link in spot.
(03/08 15:32:45)  angelmyst: now that is way creepier than any Bahro
(03/08 15:33:02)  Rabenschwinge: I heard some people theorize about using the “inter-age” communication of the KI for sending signals of various devices to other ages and back. Would make things a lot easier
(03/08 15:33:10)  Zeke365: What does linking feel like to you when you touch the book
(03/08 15:33:32)  angelmyst: like a gentle massage…..
(03/08 15:33:35)  Guild of Guilds: Yeah, we could do Twitter over KI, how exciting
(03/08 15:33:44)  Rabenschwinge: It tingles a little bit
(03/08 15:33:50)  Guild of Guilds: FaceKI, anyone?
(03/08 15:33:52)  Rabenschwinge: That would be great, yeah
(03/08 15:34:07)  HeritageNightGuy: It feels really weird, I know someone who tried to linke as little as possible
(03/08 15:34:10)  angelmyst: combination of Twitter You Tube and Facebook == You Twit FAce
(03/08 15:34:12)  Zeke365: It like once picture fades in black while the other appears closer for me
(03/08 15:34:25) Rabenschwinge laughs
(03/08 15:34:35)  angelmyst: I close my eyes…still after 5 years…lol
(03/08 15:34:47)  HeritageNightGuy: And sometimes it seems that I’m trapped between ages for 5-10 secounds waiting for the blackness to go away
(03/08 15:34:54)  Guild of Guilds: doesn’t bother me at all
(03/08 15:34:59)  Rabenschwinge: Wow, that’s scary!
(03/08 15:35:08)  Alexandria: shorah
(03/08 15:35:10)  Alexandria: everyone
(03/08 15:35:12)  Rabenschwinge: I hope it’ll never happen to me
(03/08 15:35:15)  angelmyst: the link that freaks me out the most is when I fall…
(03/08 15:35:15)  Rabenschwinge: Shorah!
(03/08 15:35:20) mTX17 says hey
(03/08 15:35:33) angelmyst cheers

(03/08 15:36:06)  mTX17: laters
(03/08 15:36:09)  Rabenschwinge: Once I almost fell into the lava in Eder Gira. I already felt the heat when my Relto book linked me out…
(03/08 15:36:17)  HeritageNightGuy: See you later mTX17
(03/08 15:36:19) Zeke365 cringes
(03/08 15:36:20)  angelmyst: laters…TX?? you leaving us?
(03/08 15:36:44) HeritageNightGuy looks around
(03/08 15:36:45)  angelmyst: The relto book has saved me so many times.
(03/08 15:36:53)  HeritageNightGuy: Did anyone see him link out?
(03/08 15:37:01)  angelmyst: but the adrenaline rush is awesome
(03/08 15:37:10)  Zeke365: One thing I m gald about is they fixed the earquakes in teh f=great shaft
(03/08 15:37:16)  Rabenschwinge: I tend to be very cautious, but it happened to me some times, too
(03/08 15:37:59)  HeritageNightGuy: I have almost fallen into the jungle in Gereson several times, ow I fear what creatures would be there if I did
(03/08 15:38:21)  Rabenschwinge: Oh god, those screams! They scare me a lot!
(03/08 15:38:21)  angelmyst: the nasty swamp around Jalak…yuch
(03/08 15:38:23)  HeritageNightGuy: I guess also the fall would kill me but it might be possible to land on something soft
(03/08 15:38:29)  Guild of Guilds: still, I’ve never seen one those creatures
(03/08 15:38:32)  angelmyst: so glad  you link before hitting that water.
(03/08 15:38:42)  Rabenschwinge: Neither did I, but I don’t want to either
(03/08 15:38:49)  HeritageNightGuy: Yes I’m qoit furtunine to be alive
(03/08 15:38:50)  Rabenschwinge: They sound very dangerous
(03/08 15:39:05)  angelmyst: they are hideous sounding
(03/08 15:39:16)  Zeke365: i wonder after the DRC left if there restoring something on the surface now
(03/08 15:39:42)  Rabenschwinge: I hope, they come back someday
(03/08 15:39:48)  angelmyst: is the fountain in Kirel working?
(03/08 15:39:54)  HeritageNightGuy: I wonder what they are doing?
(03/08 15:39:59)  Guild of Guilds: don’t think so
(03/08 15:40:10)  HeritageNightGuy: Maybe some of them are helping Cyan out with they video game Obdcution
(03/08 15:40:12)  Rabenschwinge: Maybe exploring the ages on their own
(03/08 15:40:17)  HeritageNightGuy: There was a Kickstarter
(03/08 15:40:20)  Zeke365: Wonder why they shut it off maybe to save on electricty
(03/08 15:40:21)  angelmyst: Henry should get on that one
(03/08 15:40:51)  angelmyst: the GZ power in not limited.
(03/08 15:41:08)  HeritageNightGuy: Is NOT limited?
(03/08 15:41:25)  angelmyst: well not in terms of having to save power.
(03/08 15:41:37)  Guild of Guilds: Great Zero Point Energy
(03/08 15:42:02)  HeritageNightGuy: Issen’t Zero Point Energy dangerus?
(03/08 15:42:15)  angelmyst: we just need to learn how to avail ourselves to it…there must be things we can do
(03/08 15:42:20)  Rabenschwinge: I would love to know what this kind of energy source is that powers the Great Zero
(03/08 15:42:30)  angelmyst: the crystals.
(03/08 15:42:51)  HeritageNightGuy: Ok how do cystals power anything?
(03/08 15:42:55)  Zeke365: what do you feel when you pass through those circles type things me sort of tingleing and shiver down my spine
(03/08 15:42:55)  Guild of Guilds: what powers the crystals?
(03/08 15:42:57)  Rabenschwinge: I always got the impression, that the power source was the big, orange thing in the back of the Great zero
(03/08 15:43:06)  angelmyst: Aitrus used them on his viewer when the sons were in prison.
(03/08 15:44:01)  angelmyst: brb//
(03/08 15:44:04)  HeritageNightGuy: I feel a bit of tingleing sunsation myself
(03/08 15:44:14)  HeritageNightGuy: Ok
(03/08 15:44:17)  Rabenschwinge: Ah, we need Victor Laxman to explain it to us…
(03/08 15:44:30)  Zeke365: Well I must return to other dudies
(03/08 15:44:30)  HeritageNightGuy: Too bad we haven’t seen him around in ages

Annversery

Welcome to the five-year anniversary of free-to-play Myst Online. I would like to start by thanking everyone who helped make MOULa what it is today. I would like to not only thank those that have donated to Cyan, but also those who have made fan content, helped with programming, event organization, helped out explorers, and even those who just ‘hung out’ in the city and talked with people. All these people helped to make this game as great as it is, so lets have a round of applause for everyone in the MOULa community!

Now for the fun part of this event: it’s time for Myst series trivia!

Did you know that the fortress in the mechanical age was based on a dungeons and dragons campaign that Rand ran? I once read that Rand and his brothers would play D&D often and Rand would make dungeons filled with complex puzzles. Interesting precursor, eh?

Did you know that in Myst III, you were originally going to walk into Atrus’s study and find him collapsed over his desk after being attacked by Saavedro? We know this thanks to concept art for the game. The caption under the concept art describes the scene, but not why it was changed, I suspect this was too violent for the game’s opening.

Speaking of Myst III, did you know Myst III is one of the last games Presto Studios made before closing? Presto closed after the games industry was shifting towards 3d console games and away from PC adventure games. It was a shift they didn’t like. If they hadn’t got the contract to make Myst III, they would have made a fourth Journeyman Project game. That series is about time travel and all we know about the fourth game is that it ‘illustrated one of the potentially dangerous outcomes of time travel technology‘. You know, I kind of wish they hadn’t got the Myst III contract since that sounds epic!

Did you know that some of the full motion sequences in the series were very hard to produce? The scene where Saavedro throws a fire orb and steals the book (in Myst III), and the scene where the scribe takes off in the meglave were Releeshahn particularly painful to make and took hours to edit.

Did you know that the frog in Riven (called a ‘Ytram‘) is named after sound designerMarty O’Donne‘. Ytram is Marty backwards.[/nod]

Did you know that there was originally going to be a sixth smaller island in Riven*? There where a few early screen shots online and the island can be seen in-game even though it can’t be reached.

*Citation can be found on this page: http://mystarchive.com/rivenil/mistakes.html

That’s all the trivia I have for now! Thank you for listening.

At this point we talked about the travail. Nothing too important was said so I am not going to post the chatlog.
