"Heritage Night" is an opportunity for explorers who did not get to participate in the events of Gametap's MOUL to live out those events by proxy through the words and stories of explorers who were there. Each Tuesday evening at 6:00pm KI Time in Heritage Night's Bevin (with some "field trips" to other areas), a portion of the Gametap-MOUL story will be told by the host, beginning with the return of explorers to the cavern after the hiatus that followed Prologue, detailing the important events of the Restoration, the Bahro Civil War, and the actions of central figures like Douglas Sharper and Dr. Watson that culminated in Yeesha's rescue of the explorers and their subsequent exodus from the cavern. The event will possibly include a complementary Marker game related to the events of the day's story chapter.
While this event is meant primarily for explorers who were unable to participate in the "MOUL" story, all exporers are welcome and after the "storytelling" segment of the event there will be a general discussion in which "Gametap veterans" will have the chance to share their own anecdotes with newer folks. The event is currently managed by DimensionTravelerCalum (KI# 203751), who will also serve as host for at least the first night (with the possibility of others acting as host at later dates).
Ae'gura Tokotah Plaza, about 14:00 KI Time, Rand (yes THAT Rand, the creator of Myst) links into Ae'gura. He is happily greeted from all the people there and they immediately start filling him with questions (of course :D)!
Rand gave us some good news. Cyan is happy to have Riven finally out for the iOS and they are working on other small projects as well. Rand is also sure Myst Movie will be a great movie. He has commented a bit on URU Open Source with these words:
what's the latest you've heard on open source?
we're trying to put some stuff together - it really shouldn't be long now!
the open source stuff moves all the pressure to you guys! :)
We really hope it will happen very soon!
For the rest of the visit he has chatted about many other subjects, and he was informed of the D'ni App Pokemon and others are planning on the MOUL forums and in addition to that The Public Project by Tanshin.
Just when The Public question went out, all the fog in Ae'gura turned to green and all were surprised, even Rand! At first people believed it was Rand or other people at Cyan making special effects for Rand's birthday party, but soon Rand assured us he was not behind it so it must have been someone else.
Soon Rand had to leave, but the Hacker of URU kept up his work changing the color of the sky, of the fog, making people jump, switching on the Bahro and making Kerath's Arch disappear and reappear. All of this went on for a while and was still up when I left the Cavern. Here is a collection of pictures taken there (first two: courtesy of AgeExplorer): Read more
The aim of the Devokan Trust is "To research and restore what was lost".
Think of the burnt pages of the books in the original Myst library. What worlds and wonders were lost as a result?
Are we beginning to find them, as we build in the D'ni way, or experiment in other worlds?
The new forum at http://forum.devokan.org/ is not only for those working on projects directly connected to the Devokan story as told via Developments in Devokan on the MOUL forum, but to support and showcase independent Myst/Uru-style stories and projects developed in Uru and other environments.
The Guild of Messengers is organizing the elections for its Guild Council (i.e. the Guild Masters)!
The process will last for 2 weeks if everything goes as planned, so for February there will be a new leadership for the GoMe, which may or may not be the current one.
The need for an election has been decided during the last Messengers Meeting in December, but the organization has been stopped for a month for contacting our Affiliates and letting them know, also discussing some details with them.
But now the time has come and the election mechanism will start very soon, keep following us here!!
Summary for the All Guilds Meeting of January in Kirel!

shokhootahn Rehn (aka r’Tayrtahn): shokhootahn Rehn updated us with news that he is working on porting D’ni language classes from Second Life over to URU. Classes should be in the cavern in the next month or two. Additionally story nights are being held in Tsahno’s neighborhood on Saturday evenings at 10:00 PM KI time. The story nights collectively cover the history of the D’ni, beginning with the exodus of the Ronay from Garternay to the D’ni cavern. Story nights are currently covering the events of the game Myst IV: Revelation. Only the story and back-story will be discussed and no solutions to any of the puzzles will be given. Read more
