Shorah, fellow dwellers of the cavern!
Recently, taniith of the Falling Man Group as begun soliciting input on the future of Mysterium. Although this year's to be held August 3rd - 5th in Seattle is fast approaching, what to do for future Mysteriums (Mysteria?) is still in question. A special section of the Mysterium website has now been dedicated to soliciting input from the larger Myst/Uru community on how to handle Mysteriums in the future.
Here is just a sampling of the info being requested:
- Where and how often should future Mysteriums be held?
- How large/small should Mysterium events be in size?
- Who is interested in being involved in the planning and running of future Mysteriums?
- What style and structure should the planning teams of such future Mysteriums contain?
Although there is perhaps no perfect or "magical" answer to these questions, input from explorers is a vital part of the process at making this great event an even better experience for everyone. So, when you get a chance, please drop by the Mysterium site and let your voice heard!
Here's to the future of Mysterium...Seattle, Spokane, and beyond!!!

Greetings Once Again!
It is December 1st (just barely, but more on that later), and as promised we have news! So let’s get to it.
First off, the new site. The wonderful Tanshin designed a snazzy new site which the overworked OHB is frantically trying to get working as we speak (which is why this is going out so late). That won’t be out till tomorrow though, but trust me: it looks sweet.
Next up, what many people have been asking, “When is Mysterium 2012?” Based on feedback from the survey (most of which you can still answer by the way), Mysterium will be held on the first weekend of August in Seattle, WA. That is, August 3-5 2012. So start requesting time off and such if you need to do so (we hear if you live in Australia, you need to buy tickets for these things last week o_o).
In the hopes of making it easier for people to plan ahead, the first weekend in August will henceforth be the official Mysterium weekend. So go ahead and set a recurring event on your Google Calendar, because it ‘aint going nowhere.
In other news, Falling Man Group is in need of an official logo! This isn’t a contest (like the Mysterium logos), but if you are a graphic designer and have an idea for a logo, shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We may even be able to swing some compensation for your time (but no promises just yet). Read more
Wondering what exciting things await Myst fans at the next Mysterium? Have you ever wanted to help decide the future of this premere event?

Good news everybody! This year during Mysterium there will be a live video interview with Rand Miller. We are accepting questions from anybody in the community who has something worth asking. While we will take questions that come up during the interview, any questions you have now should be submitted here so we can be prepared.
