Shorah, returning cavern-dwellers!
To those who did not hear, Myst Online: URU Live Again had a serious crash not too long ago, resulting in all avatars and their progress being lost.
As URU has a more cautiously optimistic community than most MMORPGs, many explorers are taking this in stride, and plenty of people, new and veteran, are returning to the cavern! If ever you wanted help on that one puzzle or needed one more person for a door run, now is the best time to do so.
Note that if you signed up for MOULa before July 16th, 2014, your account information (e-mail address and password) will still be valid, but you will have lost all your avatars. If you signed up after that, you will have to create an account again.
To help with this return, and so people can find each other again with their shiny new KI numbers, the ever-thoughtful OHB has set up a new directory to which you can add your avatars' names and their KI numbers, as well as look up any friends.
We will keep people up-to-date on any changes to events that this outage may have caused and how things progress.
A very brief All Guilds Meeting this month with most people recuperating from summer fun! We still had a few informative bits of info, and you can read about it in our raw and cleansed chatlogs and this handy summary below!
Dulcamara - Elodea and Beyond
Dulcamara came to the stage to mention that part of her Age, Elodea (pictured), has been updated. This large Age with much to see and do can be found via the Deep Island shard and can be played in offline URU through the Deep Island UAM database, making sure to follow the instructions for installing the Offline KI. She is also working on new Ages called Alabaster and Gallardien. They have not yet been released, so expect more news about these Ages soon!

With Mysterium behind us, it was time to finally have this month's All Guilds Meeting! This one was packed with all kinds of info about what went on at last week's fan-led convention, as well as updates in the cavern as well. Of course, no AGM summary would be complete without the obligatory raw and cleansed chatlogs.
Here's a condensed version of what happened...known far and wide as a "summary":
Calum Traveler - Mysterium Attendee
Cal was up first to talk about this year's Mysterium, which he himself attended and enjoyed. He included many personal anecdotes of his time there as well as brief summaries of what he saw at the presentations. For his full tale, you can read the previously linked chatlogs or see pictures at his DeviantArt gallery. For another recap of Mysterium's various presentations, you can read Lunanne's recently published article at The Cavern Post.

For all those people who couldn't make it to Mysterium, the annual fan-run convention for Myst and URU, here's a summary of what you missed (just like us actually).
Friday, August 1st
Cleft Location Research Panel
Ainia has been working on finding the location of the cleft for a long time now, starting a huge forum thread on the Myst Online forums. At Mysterium, she gave a summary of the findings so far and held a short Q&A. You can read the summary and transcript of the Q&A here and the forum topic here.
K'laamas managed to get some more words from Richard "RAWA" Watson at Cyan and presented a few new D'ni words. There was also a D'ni phrases handout given out to everyone who attended. If you're interested in the D'ni language, check out the Guild of Linguists.
