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!!!
Over on the MOULa forums today, Alien has announced a last minute party!:
Eurovision Song Contest 2012
The event will be held in the Central Plazza of Ae'gura on Saturday, May 26th starting @13:00 ki-time.
I know this is a bit short notice, but I thought with Eurovision happening this Saturday, and that we have a lot of European players in MOULa, why not have a Eurovision party in the city !
All you have to do is watch Eurovision and be in the city at the same time. We'll discuss the various entries, dance, and root for our favourites!
For those outside of the EU, Eurovision is an annual contest which has been held since 1956. Utilized by the member countries of the European Broadcasting Union, each country submits a live song performance, which is then voted upon by the other member countries.
This program has become one of the most watched non-sporting events in the world, and has also served as a "launching point" for the careers of many new artists!
So, let's all join our European friends in celebrating this yearly event!!!
After the opening of MOULagain, I started building a series of marker quest games for the entire community to play. I posted a topic about it back in December 2010 and have been slowly building content ever since. It was developed and made for explorers that have completed all the Uru in-game content and enjoy working together in using marker text clues and solving puzzles.
This ambitious undertaking has really been an ongoing project since 2008, when I first Wrote the Age of Planet Dragonia for open source and incorporated the prologue of my story into a series of 12 journals, then creating marker games with the journals' content.
I recently completed the latest quest, Rocks, containing journals six, seven and eight, and I started a new topic in the MOUL forums here for players to discuss the games. I believe I have enough made in the series for explorers to start playing through them. I have also started a small website, Planet Dragonia, to help build interest and support.
I'm open to suggestions and help on getting the word out and organizing the playing of the Quest Series.
Story Night has been revamped! Our fellow explorer Page will be broadcasting select audio books in Kirel's community room.
This event will be held every Tuesday at 22:00 KI time. Contact Page in-cavern for more info.
In the past, I have heard that players have formed objects to attract the Bahro or other characters into the cavern. So I was thinking: what if players formed the Cyan logo and hummed the tune? Do you think a Cyan employee would enter the cavern? Naturally, they're busy, so this may amount to nothing but getting players in the cavern, but I think it would be a fun thing to try.
The event will take place Friday, March 16 at 6:00 PM EST in the Summoner's Hood.(this should be 3:00 PM for Cyan) As someone suggested, we will " ... put gold-clothed people in the fountain and blue-clothed people around it to form a C.".
There will be a stream and an optional Mumble chat where people can actually hum the tune. This will be hosted at the Guild Of Writers(guildofwriters.org). Mumble is very easy to install and set up, it can be found here. It is open source software and free to download. Remember, use of Mumble is optional, but use of the MOULa client for voice chat is not allowed.
Being that the event is taking place while Cyan is at work, that means people in their timezone will be at work too, so it's up to us in the east to make the event work and get Cyan to come. If you can't make it, don't worry; I will post a full chat log.
I made a thread where people can write what they want to ask Cyan and I will ask your question to any Cyan employees that enter the cavern. That thread can be found here.
There will be virtual pizza! And don't worry, if you can't hold a tune, neither can I!
